TV things!

Lately my posts have been skewed toward RL ramblings. But I am still watching TV and squeeing about various series, just haven't had time to write about them. Brief overview of what I currently follow and would consider myself to be fannish about.


Supernatural )


Glee )


Flashforward )


True Blood )


Psych )


Gossip Girl )


Merlin )


Stargate Atlantis )


In addition I'm also watching sitcoms such as Scrubs, How I Met Your Mother, My Name Is Earl, and The Big Bang Theory. I will probably also check out Eastwick and Leverage soon as well. So all of these are something you can squee to me about, and since I have canon knowledge, you can consider them included in my list of "will write" when I ask for prompts etc. :D

Right, enough of this procrastination. I need to have a bath, buy groceries and make fish soup.

End of Year Fic Roundup Meme

Here are the posted fics/drabbles/random-meme-answers-that-turned-into-mini-ficlets from 2007, alphabetised by fandom.

2007 has clearly been The Year Of The Drabble (35 of them, holy crap!) – not many longer fics got finished and posted, mainly because this year RL has been particularly eventful and taxing. There are several in WIP status that will hopefully see the light of the interwebs in the coming months. 


Possibly next week: The WIP Meme. Interested in sneak previews, y/n?


ETA: Fixed! Stupid LJ deleted parts...

Birthday drabbles for [info]scruby. Scrubs is a fandom that for me requires first person JD voice, and goddamn but that’s hard to do in a 100-word drabble. I mean, JD likes to ramble, the whole series likes to ramble, but the drabble format won’t let me ramble. Talk about challenging writing…

From the Heavens a bright ligh shone down and on the field the shepperds covered their faces with rags and keened in fear. For lo, the 5th Edition of Kat's Vid Recs of Doom was upon them, and it was portentous.

...

You know that feeling when you get excited and fannish about a TV-show and you want to squee and point and make absolutely everyone watch it, because it’s just that awesome? Well, that’s what this and the next set of vid recs are all about. These are the some of the best “recruiter videos” I’ve come across; the ones that somehow manage to distill what’s best about the show into just few minutes that’s everything you love about it and everything everyone else should too.

 

ZOMG Watch Mah Show! Part 1


REMEMBER TO LEAVE FEEDBACK TO THE VIDDERS!


Vid: Church
Vidder: Gianduja Kiss aka [personal profile] giandujakiss
Fandom: Buffy The Vampire Slayer & The Angel
Genre/pairing: Show overview, action, Gen
Rambling reason why you should watch this vid: Oh Jossverse, how I miss you so. This is one of the best ensemble vids I’ve seen, showcasing the good guys, the bad guys, and everyone in between Despite the epic feel and clever, clever use of imagery and metaphors and other deep shit like that (no really, there are profound things about authority, higher power, unity, rebellion, and how the generational war really doesn’t have anything to do with age), the video is highly entertaining. It also fills me with strong urge to spend money that I don’t have on purchasing full DVD boxsets of both Buffy and Angel, because it reminds me of how totally awesome those shows were.
Download link and info: From the vidder's website here.   Or view at IMEEM here.

 

Vid: What About Everything
Vidder: [personal profile] calapine
Fandom: Doctor Who (all incarnations)
Genre/pairing: Show overview, Gen
Rambling reason why you should watch this vid: Ships and aliens, friends and enemies. Companions gained and left behind. And always the Doctor, at the centre or in the sidelines, but always there; apart and helplessly, hopefully connected. The amount of source material the vidder has had to shift through is staggering, even more so because every single clip feels just right and perfect. There is love here, not just for this show, but for the whole (Brit) sci-fi genre, and it filters through. The video is great in every sense of the word: not larger-than-life, but just-like-life, Doctor Who style.
Download link and info: From vidder's original LJ post.   Or view at youtube here.

 

Vid: Midnights and Cups of Coffee
Vidder: Miruku Koohii 05 aka [profile] miruku_koohii
Fandom: Due South
Genre/pairing: Show love letter (the best way to describe it), ensemble, Fraser/Kowalski (could be friendship)
Rambling reason why you should watch this vid: This video is here for the benefit of the younger F-listers, most of whom, I presume, may have never seen the awesomeness that was Due South. This thought makes me very sad. *shakes head despondently* The show had it all: culture clashes, deaf wolves, judgemental ghosts, fantasy sequences, action, friendship, domesticity… a repressed, exiled mountie and twitchy cop with experimental hair finding love together. (And Callum Keith Rennie who I would jump in a second even if he is a Cylon nowadays…). Anyway, I was supposed to talk about the vid, wasn’t I? Well, the best word to describe it is… heart-warming. Really and truly, this vid fills me with the kind of nostalgic love that burns like slow embers inside, warming me from the top of my head to the tips of my toes. The clips, like the show, are sweet but not cloying, and the song choice equally so. This is one of my guaranteed feel-good videos, that I indulge in every now and then, usually when I need the good kind of cry. Watch the video people. Then buy the DVDs. Then hit me for some fic recs.

Vid: Anodyne
Vidder: [personal profile] sdwolfpup
Fandom: Scrubs
Genre/pairing: Character-centric (JD plus the ensemble), Gen
Rambling reason why you should watch this vid: You should watch the video so that you know why you should watch the show itself. I haven’t a clue how they do it, but Scrubs manages to be both stomach-crampingly hilarious and genuinely touching at the same time. Seriously, this is the show the proved to me that it is, in fact, possible (but not pleasant) to laugh and cry simultaneously. The video is wonderfully upbeat, absurd, sweet and poignant, and maintains the feel of the show perfectly (especially the part about JD’s and Turk’s friendship makes me aaawww all over the place). Excellent introduction to the wacky world of Scrubs.

Vid: Setting Sun
Vidder: Martouf Marty aka [profile] martoufmarty
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Genre/pairing: Action, show overview, Gen
Rambling reason why you should watch this vid: I’m a pretty wordy gal. By that I mean that when it comes to music, it’s the lyrics that usually clinch the deal for me. Which is why I’m always utterly awed when someone can make a video work so spectacularly for a song like this. Well, yes, there are some lyrics here (and pretty fitting and interesting ones at that), but really, it’s mostly about the sound rather than words, and the vidder knows this to the last beat, the last wail of synthesizer. This video is doped up on pure adrenaline (or probably Wraith-enzyme), and the action is just relentless. The editing and clip-choice… I can’t even begin to describe how fabulous those are (the flip-and-reverse scenes fill me with glee, and every time I watch the part with the explosion from Trinity I stop breathing). Everything is somehow very physical and raw and beautiful. Really, it’s like good sex. And with that endorsement I really have to wonder why you’re not downloading the vid already?

End of Year Fic Roundup Meme
A perfect excuse for navel-gazing!

Hee! I saw this on various journals last year. Finally, this year, when I have actually written stuff, I can do it. Excitement! To all you fic writers on my F-list: please to be following my example, I want to be all meta about fic and writing and ooh and aah over your stuff. Yis.

So, it turns out I posted 14 fanfics in 2006. More than I thought. (I say posted because I started more fics than I finished and have several in WIP-status. Also, there’s at least one story in the list that was started in 2005…)

Alphabetised by fandom (with short quotes, because I felt like it.

 



Scrubs )




 




 ***


Next week: Fic plans for this year. Will take form as one of those WIP-memes where you post a paragraph of all your WIPs in an effort to encourage your F-list to kick you on the backside about finishing at least some of them. AKA more navel-gazing. Look, bellybutton fluff!
