Dear festividder,

Thank you so much for making a vid for me! I love vids! And I love these fandoms, and I am already 100% guaranteed to love a vid in any of these fandoms.

General vid things I love: Ensemble vids. Character studies. Fun shippy vids. Vids that highlight some of my favourite things about the source. Vids that point out something I never noticed in the source. Vids that give me chills. Vids that make me cry. Vids that make me laugh. Vids that make me clap my hands in glee. Vids that use music I love, and music that's completely new to me, and music that obviously goes with that source, and that I never would have through to pair with the source but works surprisingly well. Basically, I just really love vids.

(Things I don't love: Gimmicky music/audio source, talking in vids, constructed reality.)

In case you'd like more information, my requests are under the cut, along with a few more details.

Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] areasontofight and [livejournal.com profile] soobunny (and to [livejournal.com profile] care_says, [livejournal.com profile] rogueslayer452, and [personal profile] metaphasia, whose birthdays I missed last week).

Okay, I definitely signed up for too many holiday exchanges, but I'm coping. [livejournal.com profile] rarecharacters fics should be up any day now (they had some last-minute pinch hits, which I totally understand, since I'm pretty sure my writer and recipient both defaulted, but oh well. I really like the fic I wrote, anyway). Also, I've already started on my [livejournal.com profile] festivids assignment, which should hopefully come along without too many problems, so yay!

Now I just need to finish the million and one fics I've committed to, and I'll be all good ;)

ETA: RARECHARACTERS FICS ARE UP AND SOMEBODY WROTE ME AVALON HIGH FIC, THIS IS NOT A DRILL IT ACTUALLY HAPPENED, SOMEONE OTHER THAN ME WATCHED THAT MOVIE AND WROTE A FIC AND THEN GAVE IT TO ME, THIS IS FULL OF AMAZING. It's twelve days of tmi by mystery author, who if I am not already friends with I SHOULD BE BECAUSE AVALON HIGH!!! <3 <3

Hands up if you submitted a half-finished sign up for [community profile] festivids!

*puts hand up*

It's not as bad as it could be - sign ups closed in the middle of the night my time, so yesterday morning I was playing around with requesting/offering different fandoms, with the full intention of submitting my final sign up that afternoon. Which, of course, I completely forgot to do. I did, however, managed to do some things right:

a) Submit a sign up in some form: Check!
b) Request fandoms I actually want to receive a vid in: Check! I had planned to make a couple of substitutions, but only to remove some fandoms no-one offered (which was most of mine)/make me easier to match. So, there's no chance I'll be disappointed by the vid I receive, but I will be a little less surprised. (IIRC, only two of my requests actually had offers, so.)
c) Offer some fandoms: Mostly check. I accidentally un-offered at least one fandom I really wanted to offer, and didn't get around to adding in the fandoms I requested (which isn't a big deal; no-one offered most of them, and I doubt anyone would have requested them.) So, in the end I probably offered about half the fandoms I meant to? But maybe this will inspire me to make this year the year I actually make some festivids treats (yay, silver lining!).

Ugh, I feel like the worst participant ever, although I'm pretty sure, even with my screw-up, I'm still matchable (which was not actually the case initially last year, so: progress!). At least work is going smoothly, because everything else has been a complete shemozzle.

Now I just need to find my latest sign up email so I can edit my Dear Festividder letter ...

Dear festividder,

Thank you so much for making a vid for me! I'm sure it will be amazing no matter what you choose to do, so if you already have an idea in mind, go for it! I would really love any kind of vid in any of these fandoms, so don't let any of my requests restrict you - they're there to be helpful if you want them and ignored if you don't. Really, what I want most is for you to have fun with this, so do whatever makes you happy, and I'm sure I'll love the finished product!

Things I love in general: Ensemble vids. Character studies. Fun shippy vids. Vids that highlight some of my favourite things about the source. Vids that point out something I never noticed in the source. Vids that give me chills. Vids that make me cry. Vids that make me laugh. Vids that make me clap my hands in glee. Vids that use music I love, and music that's completely new to me, and music that obviously goes with that source, and that I never would have through to pair with the source but works surprisingly well. Basically, I just really love vids.

I also have a vid recs tag, if that interests you at all, or you can check my tags for more about some of the fandoms I requested. Or you can just make the vid you want, and either way I'll love it to pieces.

YOU GUYS, FESTIVIDS REVEALS ARE UP AND I HAVEN'T EVEN TALKED ABOUT IT YET.

I made Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny (The Middleman) and got super lovely feedback, festivids people are the best people. Most importantly, my recipient seemed to like it, which is really all I was going for. (And this year I really am going to post thinky thoughts about the process and whatever, but that will come later because I can prioritise sometimes.)

My plan to watch ALL THE VIDS got off to a great start before failing spectacularly - the master list has been open in my tabs for the past two weeks, but for the past week and a half I've been too busy to do anything about it. But I will get there eventually! I promise! And my first batch of (very belated) recs for the vids I did watch are coming soon. In the meantime:

MY GIFT VID IS THE BEST VID YOU GUYS, I LOVE IT THE MOST. I know we're not supposed to do this, but I was secretly hoping to get a Starship Troopers vid, AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I GOT AND IT IS AMAZING. The wonderful [livejournal.com profile] danegen made me Rock 'n' Roll Ain't Noise Pollution, and it is everything I wanted in a Starship Troopers vid and I just want to watch it over and over and over and now I can! <3 <3 <3

Dear festividder,

Thank you so much for making a vid for me, I'm sure it will be amazing. If you already have an idea in mind - go with it! I would really love any kind of vid in any of these fandoms, so don't let any of my requests restrict you - they're there to be helpful if you want them and ignored if you don't. (And if you do find requests useful: I tend to go on a bit, so, yay?)

Things I love: Ensemble vids. character studies. Fun shippy vids. Vids that highlight some of my favourite things about the source. Vids that point out something I never noticed in the source. Vids that give me chills. Vids that make me cry. Vids that make me laugh. Vids that make me clap my hands in glee. Vids that use music I love, and music that's completely new to me, and music that obviously goes with that source, and that I never would have through to pair with the source but works surprisingly well. Basically - I really love vids.

Things I don't love is a much shorter list - basically, total AUs with really complicated storylines and slow, sappy romantic vids with too many effects and not enough movement. But really, what I want most is for you to have fun with this, so: Do what makes you happy, and I'm sure I'll love the finished product! And in case you aren't sick of me yet, my requests are under the cut, along with a few more details.

Fandoms: Avalon High, Better Off Ted, Dragon Wars: D-War, Make It or Break It, The Nine Lives of Chloe King, Rookie Blue, Starship Troopers, and Wizards of Waverly Place.

All I want for Festivids ... )

I also have a vid recs tag, if that interests you at all, or you can check my tags for more about some of the fandoms I requested. Or you can ignore everything I've said and make whatever you want :)

[livejournal.com profile] festivids, you guys! I really want to post meta about the whole process, because it was AMAZING, but that will have to wait for a few days until I have regular internet access again. (At which time, I am going to download ALL THE VIDS, and leave copious feedback for my vidders, who were beyond fantastic.)
amathela: ([dlm] george)
I have not watched ALL the vids, because that would be insane (there are 174 vids!), but I did watch a lot, and they are all awesome. Since (unfortunately) I can't rec every single vid, here are a few of my very favourites:

25 recs in 22 fandoms )

[community profile] festivids is live!!! The masterlist of vids is here.

I got not one but TWO amazing vids, I feel like the luckiest recipient ever. And they're both awesome!

I gave you all (Push) - I love the slow build of this, the way there's all this tension lying just under the surface, and it's just gorgeous.

Fate (against your will) (Push) - Nick + Cassie! I love the way the the music and the visuals and the inclusion of Cassie's drawings all come together in this to form this kind of off-kilter vibe, the whole thing is just amazing.

I haven't had time to watch anything else yet, but the masterlist looks amazing so I'm probably going to end up watching EVERYTHING. Including both my vids, like, a thousand more times, because, did I mention I ♥ them?
amathela: ([wowp] david/selena)
I have progress! On an actual fic! You guys, I love the holidays.

[livejournal.com profile] apocabigbang

10811 / 10000

I am *finally* writing Justin/Alex again! Which, considering the last thing I wrote for them was for last year's [livejournal.com profile] apocabigbang, is kind of fitting. (But bizarre, like, what was I doing for a whole year?)

Under normal circumstances, this thing would have been done already, except that I was up to, like, what was supposed to be the final climactic scene, and then I was like, wait, what if this wasn't the end? What if it was just the beginning, and actual ~stuff happened after this and it was less boring? Which - I actually realised, made it a much better fic, like, less boring=better, who knew? (And also much more big bang-like, since it's gone from being a basic action-adventure type thing that barely broke the word limit to a story with an actual plot and stuff.) Except it also pretty much doubled in size, which means I'm not so nearly done after all. But I'm getting there! (Five scenes to go, I think.) And it's over the minimum word count, at least, so the draft will definitely be ready by February.

I ♥ [livejournal.com profile] apocabigbang.

(And also [community profile] festivids, which is v. soon. I can't wait!)

I'm still answering question over at that questions meme, which is super fun! Most of it so far is Greek, which is awesome, because I really love talking about Ashleigh and Rebecca and ASHLEIGH and forever OT3s. But I will talk about other stuff also if you ask me!
amathela: ([lots] ot3)
I guess this is as good a time as any to talk about what I wrote for [community profile] yuletide?

(Mostly because, AHAHAHA, I just went to update my fic masterlist and LJ rejected it because the post was too big. I refuse to believe that this means I have written too much fic. Anyway, most of my fic is still listed at the original post, but I had to move crossovers and RPF to a new post. Hopefully that will buy me some time - maybe a lot of time, if I write as little this year as I did last year.)

BUT ANYWAY. I wrote three fics for [community profile] yuletide:


Sex Is Not The Enemy (But You Still Are) (Legend Of The Seeker - Cara/Kahlan - PG-13 - 700 words) Kahlan meets Cara her very first day of college. It doesn't exactly go well.

Team Drama (Make It Or Break It - Ensemble - PG - 5990 words) It's war between the Rock girls and Ellen Beals. Spoilers up to episode 2:10 - At The Edge Of The Worlds.

She Thinks She's The Dispassionate One (Parks And Recreation - Ron/April - R - 1689 words) The Pawnee Government Ball. Super exciting. Making out with your boss. Super appropriate.


Here is me blathering about my assignments )


Speaking of awesome holiday exchanges - I actually finished (and uploaded) my [community profile] festivids assignment! This is a super big deal, because I have never managed to finish a whole vid before, and I spent a lot of time really thinking that I wouldn't be able to finish this one in time. Especially since my holiday plans meant I had to get it uploaded a week early (which, um, I am in New Zealand now? Just FYI, but I will be back on the 9th and obviously I still have internet access) - so, I spent a fair amount of time panicking and trying to decide if I should default, and then I just sat down and vidded the damn thing. And - I am really, super excited. I am even considering maybe making a treat, APPARENTLY THIS VIDDING THING IS REALLY COOL, WHO KNEW? I just really hope my recipient doesn't mind getting a novice vidder, I TRIED MY VERY BEST NOT TO SUCK, I SWEAR.
amathela: ([bsg] tahmoh/grace)
So: I have not actually been kidnapped by evil dinosaur space pirates, I have just ... been really super busy? EXCEPT THAT NOW I'M FINALLY ON HOLIDAYS FOR TWO WHOLE MONTHS, WHICH IS AWESOME. I missed fandom so much!

My [community profile] yuletide fic is finished and uploaded (\0/), and I'm still working on my [community profile] festivids assignment - I was having source issues a while back, but they're all sorted now, if somewhat imperfectly. And I know I owe all kinds of things to a bunch of people, so - that might happen? IDK, I've been away a long time, you guys, I've almost forgotten what it's like to actually participate in fandom.

In other news, I got a Wii for my birthday, and it's SO MUCH FUN OMG. It's red and it's called Cara, and I ♥ it.
