SPN AU, Sam/Dean. This is gorgeous -- epic and noir and hot and delicious in word and detail. There are a few Britishisms and one oddity of geography, but these are quibbles.

It didn't even have to be my fandom. It would have had me at the angel doing coke in a Hell's Kitchen bar. (And then hooker Dean showed up. ILU, FANDOM!)

Wow, I am so behind that everyone has probably seen all of these, and my New Year's resolution to send more feedback lasted, like, six weeks. But at least this will remind me of what I've been watching.

You will want a flying bison of your very own.

Fringe
[livejournal.com profile] cherryice, The Day the Air Turned Blue
Eerie, disorienting episodic vid for "Jacksonville."

[livejournal.com profile] kiki_miserychic, The Dream and the Tunnel Pie House Rats
Dreamy episodic vid for "Brown Betty." I think it may have every single one of my favorite moments in the episode.

Legend of the Seeker
[livejournal.com profile] bradcpu, Lightning Field
I love the feverish intensity of this, the obsessive longing of it, the sense that Kahlen is holy violence for Cara when all the violence she'd known before was unholy.

Star Trek
[livejournal.com profile] heresluck, The Test
h.l. always make clarity look effortless, no matter how complex the ideas. I love the expansive feel of this, the wide shots of leaps and falls and horizons opening up.

Supernatural
[personal profile] lithiumdoll, Glittering Clouds (Locusts)
This blows me away. In SPN--and most SPN vids--the possessed are a presence that are an absence; they're right there, but we don't see them, we just see the demons. This vid makes the invisible obvious.

[livejournal.com profile] newkidfan, Family Business
Well-constructed Dean/Castiel AU: Castiel is an assassin and Dean is the FBI agent hunting him down.

[livejournal.com profile] still404ing, Until We Bleed
Gorgeous and heartbreaking envisioning of the alternate timeline in "The End."

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
[livejournal.com profile] beccatoria, Howl
A Jesse vid that gets across how much Jesse is a fighter, how her past (the future) is the skeleton beneath the present's skin.

I keep writing posts about Supernatural and women and vidding and deleting them unposted, because it's all been said before and no one wants to hear it said again. So have some recs instead:

[livejournal.com profile] rivkat visits the Id Vortex: Filthy Mind (Sam/Dean). I loved this, and I'm curious whether other people find it as disturbing as I do.

  1. I have been working on a vid since the end of May and I'm not even half-done. [livejournal.com profile] kroki_refur made her first vid between today and Thursday. I hate her. (It's kind of adorable. If you like Supernatural, go look.)

  2. Is Premiere the crashiest program on the planet, or does it just hate me?

  3. Two of the incredibly dumb things I was sure were bugs instead of my error are indeed bugs and not my error, and they have already been fixed for updates, which the trial version will not let me download.

  4. Vidding does indeed have periods of terrible slogging boredom in which you just have to make yourself do the first goddamn draft no matter how shitty it might be, just like writing. I am sad. I wanted a longer honeymoon!

  5. You would not think you need good knees to use a computer, but you would be wrong. Having injured your knee so that blood does not flow properly to your feet means you have to keep your knee and foot elevated at a ninety-degree angle, which is awkward in most office environments.

  6. To prevent this from being an unrelenting stream of complaints, I will recommend things:


    • [livejournal.com profile] danegen's Souljacker is a study of Faith (BtVS/AtS) and Dean (Supernatural). I loved a lot about this, but what hit me most is Dean the still point, the camera rotating around him, while Faith's in frenetic movement, and they're both, still and moving, breaking down. Also, her For the Wicked is like ten pounds of angst stuffed into those tiny boxes that hold a pair of earrings each.
    • [livejournal.com profile] xandra_ptv and [livejournal.com profile] astartexx's Babyskin Tattoo is a multifandom study of opposed pairs of men, sometimes enemies, sometimes friends, sometimes (maybe) lovers. It uses a lot of non-obvious pairings as well as obvious ones.
    • [livejournal.com profile] smilla02's Ten in One is a gen novella (Supernatural) about Sam and Dean's first case after Sam rescues Dean from hell. It is severe and spare and compelling, full of the weight of things unspoken, unspeakable, and half-spoken, and sensitive to weather: to cold, snow, wind, all the pressures on the body and skin. Its reliance on the unsaid and its unsentimental characterization remind me of [livejournal.com profile] veefic's stories.
    • [livejournal.com profile] cormallen's Now We Are Come to the Kingdom (Sam/Dean) is an AWESOME, brilliantly plotted story about Sam's increasing desperation as Dean's deal comes due: terrific Sam, terrific Dean, terrific Ruby. And a killer cliffhanger, so be warned.

I ♥ fandom. Specifically, I ♥ you. I just spent half an hour reading ten-year-old discussions of "Iolokus" and "Tikkun Olam" on Google Groups, and there you were, some of you, being you before I ever met you. It was like coming back home after my first semester at college and finding that all my high school friends were even more like themselves than I'd remembered them being. Of course, I thought, seeing people for the first time all over again, no wonder I like you. You are so very quintessentially you!

Also, on Friday I saw fans and ate food and watched vids in company and at the end of every vid there was a long satisfied group sigh. I went home and reorganized my vids so that they are on fewer DVDs and alphabetical by vidder and mostly converted to DivX DVD player format, except for the Real Media and Quick Time ones, because it was too late at night when I started reading up on how to convert them and I can do that part next weekend. Also some vids have been corrupted and I have lost them and am sad, but I am sure I will find them again eventually. The Internet is my friend and my friend will provide.

Your real content for the day, spoilers for SPN 3x09 )

Also, if you know of good screencaps of Dean kissing either Crossroads Demon, please link me. Or icons that may be used for bases.
