Fic tone meme

As prompted by kalliel's hilarious post about this, here's a "tone analyzer" take on the two WIPs that are actually IP (eta: except I've finished the first in the time since queuing this. Huzzah!):

First up, that weird Stargate: Atlantis AU starring the guy that got killed off in the second episode, which is basically just an excuse for me to rewrite the same scene umpteen different ways.


Anger and fear kind of make sense, given that the main character is first about to be eaten by aliens, and then gets trapped in a cascade of potential immediate futures. But the passages marked for anger are kind of odd....



And to provide a bit of contrast, here are the passages marked for joy (also very odd selections):





And here's Respite, which is pretty much just an excuse for me to write more first-half-of-"Baby"-style fluff:


Again with anger at the top, although at least fear is dialed way back. But joy is still just as low as on the other fic, even though the whole point is them being happy together because they're successfully having a vacation. There's even going to be sand between their toes at some point.



"Dean grins at him, tension gone like it had never existed." --?? How the heck is that my second most angry sentence in the entire fic? And of the bits and piece of the fic listed here, only the fourth one actually makes sense for "joy". There's heaps better options than the other five analyzer picked out.

This toy is so interesting to me! Like, I'm so curious as to how it categorizes the lines. I know I mentioned this in the comments to the original post, but what is the magic formula!!

Like the line about tension. Did it register as angry because of the word tension? Did 'gone' register as absence of something good ergo CAUSING tension instead of lack of tension itself? WHAT IS.
P.S. This is unrelated, but I'm reasonably certain you linked your Rembrandt SPN WordPress here at some point, but I've lost the link. Could I ask you for it again??
What I find so baffling is how just about every piece of fiction fed through gets categorized as "anger". I've yet to see anything get ranked below 85%
I'm curious as to how it actually analyses and categorises lines! O.o
