i'm getting out, kissing my past goodbye

echoes: ((skins) right here right now)
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). ♥

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!

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! )

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'.

Annnnd now we have mix request number two! Several of these songs are in Japanese (OH JPOP), but I feel not knowing the lyrics does not detract from any awesome dancing that you might partake in. Though I am pretty sure - judging from the English bits they sing anyway ('in your body, let's get naughty, in your body, just shake your body') -  that it's all slinky, sexy stuff.

There is actually quite a lot of slinky, sexy stuff on here, because THAT IS MOSTLY WHAT I DANCE TO. But there are also songs for ridiculous flailing ("Girlfriend", I'm looking at you), so if slinking is not your thing, WORRY NOT.

Also, FUN FACT, "Buttons" is totally my secretly-filthy!Colin theme song, YES IT IS. Enjoy! ♥

Rating: PG
Word Count: 463
Summary: Bradley hated salad. And Katie. And everyone.
Notes: Tiny drabble about Bradley hating salad that I wrote for [livejournal.com profile] maz4pj's Merlin Finale Epic Spampost Party and cleaned up a bit.

1. Post about something that made you happy today even if it's just a small thing.
2. Do this everyday for eight days without fail.
3. Tag eight of your friends to do the same.

Day Three ;

(01) This thread between me and [livejournal.com profile] thisissirius. Also known as, 'Hey look, I made icons for the first time in a year!' I am weirdly fond of the salad one, guys. LIKE, SO FOND I'D ACTUALLY USE IT IF I WAS AT THE 'S' PART OF THE ALPHABET.


(02) Being almost a fifth through my 'Twenty Assorted Facts About the Merlin Cast' fic! Also, is there anything you guys would like to see in there? The Paperclip Incident is going in, as well as Broom Cupboard Shenanigans (requested by [livejournal.com profile] sophieisgod), and Katie's Glasses (I COULDN'T RESIST) so if there's any weird, little, details you want me to throw in, drop me a note and I'll see if I can write it.

(03) I am nearly done with the Merlin RPF fanmix! FINALLY.

Title: First Breath After Coma
Fandom: Merlin
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Spoilers/Warnings (if any): General series spoilers up to the preview for 1x13, that aired at the end of 1x12 "To Kill a King". The rest is just speculation on my part.
Notes: Oh God, this mix turned into a MONSTER on me. It's an S1 finale mix, for Arthur and Merlin, divided into two parts. Also, I am weirdly happy with my cover art this time around, despite the simplicity. Enjoy! Comment if you download, and feel free to drop me a note if you only want one or two songs and I'll upload them for you ASAP.

Fandom: Merlin
Pairing: Uther/Morgana
Spoilers/Warnings (if any): General series spoilers up to 1x12 "To Kill a King"
Notes: For all the Uther/Morgana fans on my f-list. Because I couldn't ask for a more awesome group of people to share in the colour-coded, sexylicious, clothes!porn, glove!porn, imprisoning, hate!sexing fires of the kinkiest ship on Merlin. Happy JESUS CHRIST THE FINALE IS ON SATURDAY week!

This month's challenge at [livejournal.com profile] picspammy is Favorite People, and for anyone who's been on my f-list for longer than a week, this one's kind of a no-brainer. There are 37 HUGE images in this thing, so if you have dial-up, stay FAR, FAR away.

I'm not trying to cause a big sensation,
I'm just talkin' 'bout my epic gay destiny.

Which song was this lyric from?
Get your own lyrics:

Er, anyway. I was planning on answering all the comments to the pie!fic, and then writing more of the pony!fic (plus PI-Katie!fic), only I have this headache of epic, head-splitting proportions so I am taking two Advil and going to bed. BUT FIRST. POLL TIME.

[Poll #1311270][Poll #1311270]

BTW, I am only sending fic snippets to people who explicitly requested them because I didn't want to send someone a snippet for something they might HATE. D: (If you happen to want a snippet, and don't remember if you requested one or not, feel free to just holler at me and I will write it down!)

Title: Reason #91 Why Flat-Warming Parties Are Overrated: Rocks Fall, People Die (Almost)
Fandom: Merlin RPF
Character/Pairing: Colin/Bradley, appearances by Angel, Katie, and ASH
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2808
Summary: Katie McGrath has a flat-warming party - shenanigans ensue. Or: why making pie at 4 AM is never a good idea.
Notes: Happy (belated) bitrhday [livejournal.com profile] thisissirius! This fic was supposed to all about PIE, but ended up being all about Bradley at the hospital. I'm not really sure what happened. Massive thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sophieisgod for betaing and brit-picking this for me (and also helping me come up with a title). I LOVE YOU!

She wakes up with thirty texts in her inbox about some flat-warming party she never agreed to having and seven drunken voicemails from Bradley asking why he wasn’t invited.  )

Title: The Aftermath Of Paperclips And Partial Nudity
Fandom: Merlin RPF
Character/Pairing: Colin/Bradley, appearances by Angel, Katie, and Joe Dempsie
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~800
Summary: In which the Paperclip Incident makes stuff happen. Four separate conversations taking place during another one of those Important Meetings. Prequel-type thing to Passing Notes.
Notes: OK, so. [livejournal.com profile] doompaw and I wrote this weird comment fic about Katie bullying Bradley, I discussed the repercussions of such an event with [livejournal.com profile] thisissirius, and then I ran into this conversation I once had about Bradley being weird with [livejournal.com profile] sophieisgod and this baby was born. YOU CAN BLAME THEM FOR THIS.

Also, while you're here: [livejournal.com profile] facesofbradley (run by [livejournal.com profile] thisissirius and [livejournal.com profile] lonelyfajita), a comm about Bradley's Stupid Face. IT'S AS AWESOME AS IT SOUNDS, AND I LOVE IT TO A RIDICULOUS DEGREE.

Title: Passing Notes
Fandom: Merlin RPF
Character/Pairing: Colin/Bradley, appearances by Angel and Katie
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~500
Summary: Bradley thinks Katie bullies him. And passes notes to Angel during an ~Important Meeting~.
Notes: I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THIS IS. I blame this on my conversation about what ridiculously charming idiots Bradley and Colin are with [livejournal.com profile] julesoh, and my conversation about Bradley's chest with [livejournal.com profile] sophieisgod (beware 1x11 spoilers w/ the link). Enjoy!

Bloody HELL, Bradley! TMI! )

MY EPIC REVIEW OF DIS/CONNECTED. I'm typing as I watch, so there will probably be massive CAPSLOCK contained within.

Title: Shut Up, And Pass Me The Fucking Tequila
Fandom: Merlin
Character/Pairing: Arthur/Merlin, with a decent amount of Morgana and cameos by Gaius and Gwen
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1,703
Summary: For [livejournal.com profile] dollsome - Arthur, Merlin, Morgana; drunk. Takes place in the fashion!AU verse.
Notes: OK, now this is the longest thing I've ever written. I regrettably announce that the drunken debauchery that was supposed to ensue dissolved into Morgana and Arthur bitching, which dissolved into schmoop (seriously, there are like 300 words just describing a kiss). I JUST CAN'T STOP MYSELF, GUYS. Enjoy!

Remember, be firm, and don’t budge when they try to ply you with sexual favors. )

Title: Of Socks and Inflatable Bananas
Fandom: Merlin
Character/Pairing: Arthur/Merlin, with surprise!Morgana and surprise!Uther at the end
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1,582
Summary: For [livejournal.com profile] thisissirius  - Merlin/Arthur; socks. Takes place in the fashion!AU verse.
Notes: UM. This was supposed to be a 400 word drabble containing only dialogue, but THEN IT EXPLODED. Not only is this the longest thing I have ever written, it is also the first that includes actual kissing (!) . I blame this on the song "Death of Toshiko" from the Torchwood OST, because I needed so much cheering up after listening to it that I basically wrote almost 1,600 words of MERITLESS SAP (seriously, take the sappiest fic from this fandom, multiply it by 8,000, and this fic will still be worse). I'M SORRY [livejournal.com profile] thisissirius . OK, this fic takes place in Merlin's flat on Christmas Day, one year after Merlin and Arthur have gotten together (IN A BOYFRIENDS SORT OF WAY) and all that. (Also: the Pendragons usually vacation at their summer house in France each Christmas. THIS IS A (SORT OF) IMPORTANT FACT.) Enjoy! (IF YOU CAN.)

Yes, Merlin, I know how to put socks on. )

Because it will probably take me an extremely long time to actually write the entire fashion!AU (if this snippet, which was only supposed to be 200 words long but then kind of exploded, is any indication, anyway), HERE, HAVE A SNIPPET OF THINGS YET TO COME. YOUR FIRST GLIMPSE OF FASHION!AU ARTHUR (AND MORGANA). Hopefully this is not terribly disappointing.

Title: I Will Be The Answer (At The End Of The Line)
Fandom: Merlin (the 2008 BBC TV series, not that random movie from the 90s)
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Spoilers/Warnings (if any): General series spoilers up to 1x07 "The Gates of Avalon", but I opted out of doing those little explanatory notes, so nothing's really mentioned, per se. Actually, if you know what the series is about, you should be good, since all this mix really does is insert its own subtext and speculate about future events like a crazy thing.
Notes: This mix has pretty much been killing me for the past week. At one point it was...40 songs long? I've been trimming and rearranging and redoing the artwork (AND I'M STILL NOT SATISFIED WITH THE DAMN TEXT), and by this point I think I've polished it up as much as possible without driving myself insane. I'm pretty happy with the music selection at this point, even though practically all the male artists I put in there got cut (FREAKING PRONOUNS. I'm POSITIVE that none of these have incorrect pronouns, because of the sheer amount of time it took me to weed out all the ones that did), and it's kind of a big, sappy, love fest. Because that's how I see Arthur/Merlin: an epic love story with ten million obstacles but a satisfyingly cheesy and dramatic happy ending - dramatic violins of emo HAPPINESS AND JOY, and all. Just feel lucky you guys escaped Josh Groban's "You Raise Me Up". I was seriously THIS close to putting that on here, but finally decided that would be too sappy and 90s even for me. UM, ANYWAY. ENJOY! And comment if you download, and stuff. ♥ (Also, feel free to drop me a note if you only want one or two songs and I'll upload them for you ASAP.)

16 songs in a .rar file + artwork and track listing under the cut )

ETA: Oh, and it would be much appreciated if anyone could tell me where, exactly, I should pimp this baby out (besides [livejournal.com profile] fanmix, which is the only comm I can ever consistently remember to pimp things at).
