i'm getting out, kissing my past goodbye

So [livejournal.com profile] wondygal did the original fic version of this meme, which I had been planning to do for a while, but kept putting off because it is REALLY, REALLY difficult (I still plan to do it! Eventually!). But then I saw a fanvid-inspired variation, and wanted to occupy myself while HIMYM and Gossip Girl download. I - can't imagine anyone will want to read my crazy love-fueled vid rambling, but whatever, I ENJOY TALKING ABOUT THESE THINGS.

Pick your five ten all-time favourite fanvids, the ones which made you laugh or cry or kicked you in the guts, that inspired you to offer the vidder internets and first born sons, and tell us why you loved them. Any fandom, any pairing, any genre - the only requirement is they stood out from the crowd. Also, links or it didn't happen.

Vid reccing magic! Vaguely in order of importance, but actually not really, because then it got too difficult and I got lazy. ALL OF THESE VIDS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS. )


WELL THAT WAS EXTREMELY TIME CONSUMING. But fun! If any of you decide to do this, definitely link me in the comments, so I can check it out (I have given up on checking my f-list. IT IS LIKE DROWNING). ♥

Hiatus-ing it up until I get my laptop fixed/a new one! I'll probably still be checking my f-list on occasion, though I won't be posting or commenting as much. ♥

smooth wounds from willow bark

This picspam is not at all organized! Because I started off with like, two things so I decided not to do size coordination. JUST IGNORE THAT. Also, the entire time I was making it, I was talking to [livejournal.com profile] moogle62 on G-chat about, like, everything. There is no Dollhouse in this because I wanted to make it [livejournal.com profile] moogle62 friendly after yakking at her about it all day. MOOG, HURRAY UP WITH THE WATCHING SO I CAN STOP WORRYING ABOUT SPOILING YOU. The lovely Eliza Dushku was also excluded because I wound up with way too many pictures of her and I AM TIRED. But tomorrow! Eliza spam!



LIKE THE HAPPY MEME, ONLY MORE TIME CONSUMING AND WITH LOTS OF PICTURES )

people were, indeed, staring

I have a gigantic pile of homework today, so of course that means I wrote approximately 400 words of Merlin RPF for the first time in like, three months! So yeah, HANDWRITING FIC COMING UP SOON, MAYBE, PROBABLY.

Also, have a random snippet of something I wrote in history today when I should have been taking notes.

Merlin RPF! In Disneyland! 204 words of it! Probably horribly out of character because I haven't written any in forever! )

NOW I HAVE TO READ ABOUT 150 PAGES OF THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY AND STUDY FOR A HUGE HISTORY TEST OF HUGENESS. I CAN DO IT! TOTALLY! IT'S NOT IMPOSSIBLE!

let's get lost, me and you, an ocean and a rock is nothing to me

Man, 98% of the time I am way too lazy to do picspams, and then the five times a year I do do them, they're of the huge, epic, dial-up destroying variety. Anyway! In a mad fit of inspiration, I picspammed Adelle DeWitt's scenes from Dollhouse 1.09 for this month's [livejournal.com profile] picspammy challenge. Making this thing really reinforced my love for Adelle by like 39432904023 billion, and I totally teared up over how amazingly soul hurty Adelle's stuff was while doing some of the color correcting (listening to Lisa Hannigan's recentish album on repeat also probably had something to do with it. And now I associate all of Sea Sew with Dollhouse). Basically, I am an overemotional loser who cares too much about fictional characters, but what else is new? Also, there's over 250 screencaps here, so I think it's safe to say that this will straight up murder your dial-up.



Could be very urgent, or it could be Topher calling to tell me that his sweater is itchy. )

pale princess of a palace cracked // gemma doyle trilogy // felicity/pippa

Title: Pale Princess Of A Palace Cracked
Fandom: Gemma Doyle Trilogy
Pairing: Felicity/Pippa
Spoilers/Warnings (if any): General spoilers for all three books.
Notes: Inspired after a night of slightly crazed Clark/Lana YouTube video watching. I'm not....entirely sure how that happened. The mix stretches through all three books in the trilogy and consists of mostly Felicity-POV songs, with some crazy Pippa stuff thrown in too. The cover art for this thing nearly killed me, but you know, I'm actually rather liking it now. Enjoy!

i've got this icebox where my heart used to be

Am still working on the neverending Smallville picspam while being distracted by the great chasm of fic this fandom has to offer and impatiently poking at Bittorent to hurry the fuck up and finish downloading all the Skins episodes so I can start vidding. MEANWHILE.



Bidding opens tomorrow is actually ALREADY OPEN, and I'm offering a vid to the two highest bidders for, er, a bunch of fandoms! It's for a real great cause (sidenote: I am always very, very amused by how much Wincest gets written, given the charity), and there's LOADS of talented people selling everything from cloth to food to fic. So yeah, check it out! ♥

Title: I Do Not Hook Up
Fandom: Know Not Why by [livejournal.com profile] dollsome
Character: Amber Clark
Spoilers/Warnings (if any): General spoilers for everything.
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] dollsome because she is lovely! Also because there is nothing like a mix about someone who is a very good example of female kickassery to propel you out of sadness. ♥ (Also, also, I changed the extensions to '.doc' when I uploaded it, because there is NO WAY your evil school is going to go, "Hmmm, this Word file is not what it seems, and actually a cleverly disguised .zip of illegal music!" NO WAY. THEY'D HAVE TO BE, LIKE, FREAKING NINJAS.)

Title: Who I Appear To Be
Fandom: Skins
Character: Effy Stonem
Spoilers/Warnings (if any): General series spoilers up to 3x05 "Freddie"
Notes: This mix is structured a little differently from my usual ones. It's in semi-chronological order, but the first half is about how other people perceive Effy (and how she wants them to perceive her), while the second half reflects the girl behind the walls. Enjoy! Comment if you download, and all that jazz.

poster boy, you're society's child

Annnnnd, the f-locking is all finished! All fics, mixes, picspams, and vids should still be public, but if there's something that I missed (very probable), feel free to nudge me, and I'll fix it.

If you're not on my f-list, but would like to be, feel free to drop me a comment here, and I'll consider it (that sounds, er, weirdly bitchy, but I don't want to say, 'and I'll add you', because obviously I will not be adding everyone, SO JUST PRETEND I SOUND NICER ABOUT IT).

you should learn when to go, you should learn how to say 'no'

Er, I made icons? Which I haven't really done for a year now, unless you count that Merlin RPS set of ridiculosity. Basically, I couldn't find any icons of the Brideshead cast I liked, so I was forced to make my own. And then I figured, "Hey, why not inflict my CREATION upon the Universe???", so here you go, ladies and gents. I hereby name this set, 'Waaaaay Too Much Fun With Textures'.

twists into smoke when i turn on the lights // gen

Unrequited (?) love. We all know the feeling. It's hope and butterflies and sunshine and pain and doubt and longing. Do you say something? If you do, what you have - smiles across the cafeteria, walks on icy streets, laughter, comfort, silliness - could become so much more, and it would be lovely, no, better than lovely. But maybe you can't. Because you know it might not. That what you've longed for will be exposed for what it really is - just a fantasy.

This mix is about unrequited (?) love. Molly requested it (♥♥♥), but I know there's more of you on my f-list struck with the lovebug this time of year. So, this one's for you. For the ones who've said something and had their dreams crushed, and the ones who are still trying to build up the courage.

One serving of unrequited (?) love with a side of hope. ♥
"You will never be as you were. What is left to you is the chance to become something new and unsure. But at least the waiting is over." (Rebel Angels, Libba Bray)
