### Like Integration.

Mar. 17th, 2007 07:24 pmWe start with the conclusion, and try to find how that conclusion was reached. It can almost be triangulated - we have the conclusion that was explained through three seasons of canon,

*and*we have the conclusion from the second half of TAT2. (That's twice as many conclusions as most fandoms have!)

It's sort of like calculus. Normally fic is like Differentiation - easy and straightforward, though sometimes you have to use the Chain Rule - but writing DWCG era is more like Integration by Recognition. You have to try and see what, when you differentiate(/follow on from) it, would bring you back to what you've got in canon.

*should probably sleep*
