I am so excited about this exchange, I can't even begin to tell you. 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, a lot of effects. Generally, I prefer fast-paced vids to ones that are slow and lingering.)

I have been thisclose to finishing my yuletide fic for, like - a week? Longer? But apparently the only time I write anything any more is at work, which basically means never. But I'm on the last scene! It's almost done! And I'm actually happy with how it's turned out, so hopefully my recipient will like it.

Don't ask me about my festivids. Changing computers mid-vidding cycle is so not conducive to getting things done.

I got podficced! My Sif/Darcy fic, Scavenger Hunting Is Extremely Likely Dangerous (S.H.I.E.L.D.), was podficced by [personal profile] cantarina, which is always awesome and yay. (Especially this week when I've had an awful inner ear infection, ugh. But, podfic! Yay!)
amathela: ([middleman] !!!)
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
amathela: ([rb] don't move)
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 :)

Okay, so, I actually do remember saying I wasn't going to up and vanish again this year. But! Technically I haven't been gone, just not posting a lot, I'm still up to date on my friends list etc. So, since I haven't been active enough to post one of these in a while, here's a roundup of everything I've been up to since January (hint: not a lot).


Under Covers (Covert Affairs - Annie, Auggie - PG - 3058 words) Auggie's sick (but not if you ask him). Annie's playing nurse (but not if you ask her).

Dictionaries For Dummies (Sexicon Remix) (Glee - Brittany/Santana - R - 1341 words) Four words Brittany doesn't know (and one she kind of does).

Set Fire To This Town (The West Wing - Josh/Donna - NC-17 - 4657 words) What's a girl like you doing in a place like this? Spoilers up to episode 6:15 - Freedonia.

Space Invaders (Wizards of Waverly Place - Justin/Alex - PG-13 - 16,945 words) Justin was right. (Of course.) Which sucks for Alex. Especially since it means aliens are now on their way to Earth, and, oh yeah, they want to destroy the world. So, someone should probably stop them? Spoilers up to episode 4:1 - Alex Tells The World.


... and a vid:

Don't Stop Movin' (Primeval, Ensemble) Team ARC = awesome. (Mostly.)


Firstly: OMG West Wing fic. No, I'm not going through a fannish resurgence, just posting fic I wrote ... three or so years ago? I have no idea why I didn't post it at the time, but oh well, it's done now. (I actually have more of these somewhere, I think, but since they're just comment fics I'll probably leave them.)

Secondly: Accomplishments, yay! For a while there I legit wasn't sure I'd actually finish my [livejournal.com profile] apocabigbang fic (the horrors!), but I pulled through. Note to self: procrastination does not work on big bangs. I also managed to get my [livejournal.com profile] helpbrazil2011 fic done, which is of the good; I actually had a bit of a mixed experience with charity auctions this time around, since my [livejournal.com profile] qldfloodauction bidder never got back to me, nor did one of the people whose fic I won, but I guess that kind of thing happens. The fic I did end up getting, however, was fantastic - [livejournal.com profile] lotus0kid wrote me Better Off Ted fic, and you should totally read it if you're into that kind of thing (aka. the kind of thing that is amazing).

And I wrote a pinch hit for remix, which was fun, since I talked myself out of actually signing up this time around (disappointing, but realistically a very good idea). I'm totally doing [livejournal.com profile] apocalyptothon, though.

Thirdly: I signed up for [community profile] femslash11! Which should be okay, since I have holidays coming up in a few weeks, and I really love this ficathon. Also, if there's anybody out there who shares my fandoms (*cough* Sonny With a Chance) and wanted to maybe sign up too, that would be okay. Or whatever.

[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.

Festivids!

Dear festividder,

I am so, so excited about this, I can't even tell you - someone making a vid just for me? In a small fandom that I love? Count me in! I hope there's something in my requests that works for you - I tried to be as open as possible with my requests, while still hopefully giving you something to work with and some idea about what I like best about those fandoms. But, seriously, anything you make will be cherished and adored and rewatched until my computer breaks down, there is seriously no pressure here, just vid something you're excited by and I am sure to love it!

I don't really have any fandom-specific notes to add that weren't in my requests, but in general: I like all kinds of vids, from fun, happy vids to fast, action-y vids to dense, thinky vids, and everything in between. My musical tastes are pretty eclectic, and I love it when a song choice surprises me - as long as it fits the vid, I'll love pretty much anything. I do have a vid recs tag, if that's something you're at all interested in.

And for anybody who's curious about what I asked for:

Vid requests under the cut )

Oh, and yes, I am more than okay with receiving treats!
amathela: ([miobi] olympic gold)
+ Okay, so: I totally signed up for [community profile] festivids. This may turn out to be a terrible idea, I DON'T KNOW, but everybody who participated in it last year seemed super enthusiastic about doing it again this year, and I have no willpower whatsoever. Plus, maybe this way I will actually get the motivation I need to actually finish something? And the deadline isn't until January, when I'll be on holidays, so the timing works out, at least.

+ I also submitted my [community profile] yuletide nominations (Miss Match, Make It or Break It, Wizards of Waverly Place, Diplomatic Immunity, Doom, and RPF - The Office), but I'm still not sure exactly what I'm going to request. There's so much other stuff I want to read fic for, but I only get four requests, how am I supposed to narrow it down? Right now, I'm thinking:

Miss Match - because I request it every year, and even though I'll probably never get it, I can't bring myself to give up and use the slot for something else. It could happen!

Make It or Break It - Sasha/Payson! This is definitely one of my requests.

The Office RPF - BJ/Mindy. This is a maybe; I asked for it two years ago, and got not one but two amazing fics, so I feel like maybe I shouldn't ask for it again, but I really love these two a crazy amount, so.

??

Stuff currently vying for request #4: Valentine (damn it, forgot about this one - I may have to redo my nominations!), Wizards of Waverly Place, Princess Protection Program, Sonny With a Chance, Diplomatic Immunity (I really want this! There is literally no fic! But I might be in the same position with this request as I am with Miss Match, ie. nobody else has seen it or cares enough to write fic; I'm always worried when I have to nominate something from scratch), Doom, Push, Tin Man, Covert Affairs, Better Off Ted, Greek ... how the hell do I do this every year? At least I won't have any shortage of fandoms to offer, I suppose. And there are probably a dozen things I'm forgetting, and in January I'll be going, 'damn it, why didn't I ask for [insert fandom here]?'

+ We've started moving our stuff into the new house, it's very exciting! Except I've been neglecting homework in favour of packing, and I can't do that much longer, since the end of the semester is rapidly approaching.

+ And I just finished reading Mockingjay! I started The Hunger Games ... um, a few days ago? And finished the trilogy in three days, it was kind of like a mini-addiction. I do have thoughts, but most of them have been summed up elsewhere; overall, I was not in love with Mockingjay, but I still love the series a whole lot.
amathela: ([primeval] abby)
- My [livejournal.com profile] girlsavesboyfic story is probably not going to be finished in time, woe. But I'm really excited about it, so I'm still going to finish it; I just won't be able to post it for this particular challenge.

+ Sweet Drabblethon is taking prompts until October 8th. It's multifandom, so go leave a prompt, and maybe someone will be able to fill it - I left a Make It or Break It Prompt, so my chances probably aren't particularly high, but it's what I want, so whatever.

+ [community profile] festivids sign ups are open! I ... really should not sign up, but it's so, so tempting. If you are into vidding, though, you should definitely do that.

+/- Moving soon! On the plus side, shiny new house; on the minus side, haven't yet started packing. Ugh.
amathela: ([b&s] mexico)
SO. I AM TOTALLY BEHIND HERE, AND I'M SURE THIS WILL SURPRISE ABSOLUTELY NO-ONE, BUT HOW MUCH DO I LOVE WHIP IT? SO FREAKING MUCH ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ OMG CUTE GIRLS HITTING THINGS AND BEING RIDICULOUSLY GAY IN ROLLERSKATES, COULD THIS MOVIE BE ANY MORE PERFECT?

Why are there no Whip It vids, universe? This is obviously a wrong that must be corrected. And now I kind of want a Disney RPF/Whip It fusion WHERE DEMI AND SELENA JOIN ROLLER DERBY, COME ON, IT WOULD BE AWESOME. I also think there should be a Zac/Vanessa Back to the Future AU, IDEK. But Zac Efron kind of reminds me of a young Michael J Fox, so, clearly it should be a thing.

Also, in things that aren't related but sound like they are, I really think somebody should vid Psych to Whip It (the song). Devo is still cool, right?

Anyway, I spent all weekend copying everything on my computer to an eternal HD, erasing my hard drive, and installing a new operating system. (Before that, I was running Tiger, which. New software wouldn't run on my computer! So this is much better.) And then reinstalling everything. Which took a long time, but I ended up with, like 20GB of extra space on my hard drive, so I'm not complaining.

And I watched Brothers & Sisters, which - apparently Joe Jonas was supposed to be on the show? Really old casting + episode spoilers )

Um, and I signed up for twitter, so I guess I'm doing that now?
amathela: ([bsg] hardcore superstar)
Okay, it's officially surprising how reinvested in BSG I am now that the show is over. Which is odd, because it's not like I really loved the finale. (There's definitely something about imperfect canon sources and fannish impetus, particularly since the character I'm most in love with right now is Boomer.)

I rewatched the miniseries a week or so ago for [livejournal.com profile] bsg_refrak, and then I watched all of season one (because I love that season, like, unreservedly), and then today, I watched the miniseries again. And, I don't know, I really feel like the miniseries gets better and better every time you watch it - like, the first time I watched it, I remember it felt like it went for about six hours, and was just incredibly dense (but awesome). But after the ... fourth or fifth time through, it feels really well-balanced and easy to watch and not too heavy at all. Which, in retrospect, may have something to do with the fact that I first started watching BSG after starting SGA ;)

Anyway, I was going to watch season one - again - but I decided I felt like watching season 4.0 instead, since I now have it on DVD and everything. So I'm doing that. It's actually a lot of fun, especially since I can marathon it now; I didn't get to do that the first time through, and it's definitely the way I prefer to watch my TV shows.

What I should be doing, of course, is working on my Big Bang(s), but, I don't know. I'm really procrastinating on that, plus they're just ... not BSG. I have very little time for things that aren't BSG right now. I'm feeling almost monofannish, actually, which is something I've never felt before. It's new, and kind of exciting (if somewhat inconvenient, re: the aforementioned Big Bangs).

I still need to type up some episode reactions (man, I haven't done those - at least, for non-BSG shows - for ages, but Greek came back this week, and I am so freaking excited about that), plus a couple of BSG meta posts I still really want to write. And vid recs, because I really believe, in a totally subjective and biased fashion, that BSG fandom has the best vids ever. And my March fic roundup (of all of two fics), which I will post shortly. At least my miniseries(-ish) picspam is nearly done.

Plus, I am kind of having vid thoughts. Which, I know, I say that from time to time and inevitably never follow through. But this time, I actually have all the footage already sourced, which is usually my biggest problem - like, I run out of vidding momentum before I even really get started on a vid, which sucks. So, who knows. One day, I swear, I will actually make a vid, and not just parts of one.

Also, it's 3pm and haven't slept, so - maybe I should get on that?

ETA: Dude, what's going on at Kindreds? (I mean, I guess I could check it out myself, but.) I haven't visited there for ages - I should really rectify that, once I get it together enough to write some Helo/Athena fic.

Bang Bang

Feb. 2nd, 2009 05:13 pm
amathela: ([gossip] score)
I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] thelittlebang. I'm really excited - I've had this story idea and notes sitting around on a list of Things I Should Write for ages, so this should be an awesome motivation for me to, y'know, actually write it. Plus, this will be the first Big Bang (or, well, Little Bang, obviously) I've participated in, and 15,000 words sounds like a manageable way to try to ease into that.

Writers need two betas, and people writing in small fandoms need to bring at least one of their own. I've already asked [livejournal.com profile] talumin if he'd be willing to do it (which went something like -

[livejournal.com profile] amathela: Would you be willing to beta a femslash -
[livejournal.com profile] talumin: Yes!)

But if anyone on my friends list would be interested in beta-ing a 15,000 word She's The Man (Olivia/Viola) rom-com, that'd be awesome.

And the writing period doesn't start until March, which is good, because it gives me time to plot and outline and stuff, plus to finish up a few of the fics I'm currently working on before that.


Also, since it's February, I figured now would be a good time to check in with my Fannish New Year's Resolutions.

Progress, updates, etc. )
amathela: ([spn] ruby)
Stuff I want to do in fandom in 2009:

- Leave more feedback. This is number one, because, honestly, I'm usually really bad at this. Which sucks, because I know how much I cherish every single comment I receive. So, I'm going to make a concentrated effort to leave feedback on stuff I read and love, even if it's just "I loved this!" or something equally inane.

- Write longer fics, even if it means I write fewer fics. I have quite a few plot bunnies/outlines/ideas for longer fics that I never get around to finishing because, well, I'm lazy, and writing something I can finish in a few days instead of a few weeks or months appeals to my desire for instant gratification. I still do want to write those fics, though, so this year I'm going to try to focus less on short, single-session fics and more on putting a sustained effort into plotting, outlining, and actually writing longer fics. Quality > quantity, and I'm sure that, in the long run, I'll appreciate having written one or two long(ish) fics a lot more than a score of quickly-forgotten drabbles.

- Sort through the unfinished fics and fic ideas I have laying around my computer, in notebooks, and on scrap pieces of paper. Organise them, and type up what needs to be typed, or at least work out some better way of keeping them that isn't "lying around in a loose heap on my floor." Finish the fics I still want to write, and trash the ones I don't.

- Finish at least one vid. I've started a couple, and have ideas for a few more, but none of that really means anything if I don't ever finish one. Realise that I'll never get to make that really awesome, epic, good vid if I don't finish at least one or two possibly crappy vids first.
amathela: (roswell: bowling)
I've got absolutely nothing done in the past few days, because I've pretty much been mainlining crack Prison Break. I've just started season three, and I've been watching for ... a few days? Maybe a week, all told, since I got stalled partway through season one a while back, but probably a little less. And oh my god is this show addictive. Like, I'm not exactly sure what it is, because it's nothing I can exactly place my finger on, but I really do not want to stop watching. And I'm already getting a little sad, because in nineteen episodes I'll be all caught up, and I'll have to wait for new episodes. And I'm not sure I can do that. I need my fix, dammit!

Also, I'm (remarkably) mostly gen-ish about the show, with a few notable exceptions. Because there's Alex/Michael, which [livejournal.com profile] sol_se already got me hooked on, and Sucre/Maricruz, which is obviously the true Prison Break OTP (and shut up, I don't care if she's not on the show anymore, THEIRS IS A FOREVER LOVE), and I kinda have this burning desire just to get Linc laid, but the pairing that's really hooked me - hard - is Kellerman/Sara. I know, I'm going to hell, whatever. And I'm about to start searching out fic for them, but the thing that really kind of baffled me, when I, um, maybe went looking for fanvids on YouTube, is that most of the vids I found were these sappy, romantic AUs. And, I mean, I'm all for creating your own story if canon isn't giving you the one you really want, but heartfelt declarations of love? Is not why I ship them. (Though there may be a part of my brain that wants implausibly happy, fluffy fic. Whatever, the heart wants what it wants.)

Anyway, momentarily denied my fix while [livejournal.com profile] talumin is asleep, I decided to watch Private Practice, because, hey, Paul Adelstein!

Private Practice )

Also: speaking of Prison Break fanvids? I may be, um, working on a kind of ridiculously cracky season two vid. A couple of days ago I had iTunes open, and I saw the song, right, and I thought, wow, I wonder if that would be any good for a Prison Break crack vid? And then I thought, no, probably not. But then I played it anyway. And it is ... so very completely perfect. That is, as long as you view Prison Break as being almost completely made of crack, which obviously it is. So now I am doomed, because I really have to make it; most of it already exists in my head, so all I have to hope is that I can get it to translate. And ... it just makes me happy, you know? And they say being an addict is a bad thing.

And ... I don't have any Prison Break icons? I must rectify this immediately.
