Festivids vidder names have been revealed and I'm still so grateful to Dayln aka [livejournal.com profile] gigglemonster for making the fabulous Never Let Me Go vid Lifeforms.

I made Let Me Go (not the most fortuitous title, I know) for the 1981 BBC miniseries Brideshead Revisited. Like my recipient [livejournal.com profile] crowie, I loved this story before I knew what slash was, and it was good to go back and spend some time with it again. B suggested the lovely Kate Rusby song "No Names", and someday I'll make a vid where the picture actually looks nice.

Even though vidding is super hard I am glad I participated in [community profile] festivids! The mods took good care of us and I had a lot of good companionship on Twitter and commenters were generous. I hope it'll work out for me to play again next year, and I hope I'll make another vid or two before then!

And hey, speaking of vidding, calls just went up at [community profile] wiscon_vidparty both for new vids to premiere at the con and themed playlists of 3-6 vids. They need things by May but they'd like to have an idea soon of what/how much to expect. Hey, vids are great and so is feminism, and so is [personal profile] chaila and from everything I here so is WisCon, so this sounds like an awesome opportunity all around.

Festivids!

This is my first year participating in Festivids, and it is great! I did watch and comment on some vids the last couple years but then last year I really regretted not signing up, so this year I did, even though exchanges are stressful and scary. It was indeed scary, and I didn't make any of the fabulous extra treats I had planned to do. But since the vids went live last weekend it's been really nice.

Someone made me a really awesome Never Let Me Go vid! It is beautiful and horrible and really skillfully done. I am glad it's getting nice comments though it's not a hugely popular source. On the other hand, I'm also glad that other folks are also commenting on the vid I made, even though that one's not so skillfully done. :) As [personal profile] fitz_y and I agreed about the old summerpornathon, I feel a little silly now for having been so nervous about this, it is all such a love fest.

So I spent a lot of time watching vids last Sunday but not enough since then. Still so many more to see! But luckily they will still be anonymous for another week!

I don't think I'll make a recs post because, really, what I recommend is going to the masterlist on Dreamwidth or on LJ and rolling around in it for a few hours or a few days. Vids! For rarely vidded sources! As gifts! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I hadn't read any fic in ages, but I had some insomnia Friday night and went looking around the AO3 and ended up with a really nice long X-Men WIP called Pantheon by [archiveofourown.org profile] Yahtzee. It's a Roman slave AU mainly an Erik/Charles love story but also featuring Logan and Rogue and Emma and some other people. At the time I was reading over the weekend it was at four out of eleven chapters but the author just posted another one tonight, so it's now up to just under 50K and I have more achy sad fic to read while curling up with my cat and ignoring my other responsibilities tonight.

I also started another Erik/Charles fic, it's like one of us woke up by [personal profile] kaydeefalls the other day. It's a long canon-divergent AU and all Charles POV (Charles is my favorite) with peril and feelings and I'm enjoying that one a lot too.

I never really got into this fandom but now I feel all nostalgic for it. :) I guess there's another movie coming out next year and ... I can't even really say I'm looking forward to it because I kind of expect there to be a lot of disability fail along with the same kind of gross sexism and racism we saw in XMFC. But also James McAvoy's beautiful face! Feelings about found family and community! Erik and Charles and their doomed love! <3 <3

I've only read a few more pages of those novels I mentioned last week, Flight Behavior and Purple Hibiscus. Man, life is different when you're not traveling.

In other news, I am happy with my Festivids assignment. B suggested a song that I like a lot and we're planning on rewatching the source together soon. I have a bunch of ideas for treats I could make but I think making my official assignment plus one treat is a good goal to aim for (you know, after not making any vids all year).

Oh my gosh, I am so excited to be participating in Festivids for the first time! I haven't been too active in fandom in recent months (as you can probably tell from my journal), and I'm not signing up for any exchanges this season, but I have loved watching Festivids vids the last couple years and I can't wait to see what you will come up with. Thank you so much for signing up and offering one of my fandoms!

I don't have much to say here, being just a baby vidder with very broad tastes and no triggers to speak of. To be honest I struggled to come up with anything to say in my requests beyond "Their faces!" I like all kinds of music, all kinds of vids, and pretty much all the characters in these shows. I'll just copy my requests below. I mentioned not wanting to see torture from Scandal but if you're interested in exploring the violence from other sources like Children of Men and Top of the Lake you should go for it. I really hope you have fun making the vid you want to make, whether or not it matches with the characters that I mentioned. <3 <3 <3

in random order: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Caramel, Children of Men, The Hour, Top of the Lake, Never Let Me Go, Scandal )
