Author notes: I don’t write in this fandom (drabbles don’t count, so there). I rarely even read in this fandom. Turns out you make exceptions for the people who matter. This is a (late!) fluffy birthday fic for my wonderful friend [livejournal.com profile] moth2fic, who is one of the loveliest people I've ever met. Hope you like this, dear. Thank you very much to [livejournal.com profile] pushkin666 for all the canon consultation and cheerleading and to [livejournal.com profile] margaret_r for a first class beta. Title comes from Birthday Song by The Beatles, because sometimes subtlety is just over-rated.


They Say It's Your Birthday )



kat_lair: (PSYCH - whaaaaaat)


Hawaii Five-0

Jaws - Danny/Steve, shapeshifter AU. This is such an awesome piece of crack fic that actually starts to build some really interesting mythology about this version of shifters... Would have happily read a lot more in the 'verse.

Let's Dance Like We Used To
- Danny/Steve. Rachel and Stan move back to the mainland, taking Grace with them. And where Grace goes, Danny goes. And, it turns out that where Danny goes, Steve goes. Eventually. Oh, oh, my heart, just the warmth and family feeling of this toward the end, my heart expanded at least three sizes. Wonderful read.

Sounds Like Love - Danny/Steve. Ngl, I could read a thousand of these 'undercover as a couple' fics and not get bored. Mmm ust.

Sugar Rush - Danny/Steve. N'aaww this is such a cute little story. Includes chocolate pastry. Delicious!

We Believe in the Sum of Ourselves - Danny/Steve. Coda for 1.16. Danny is a little worked up and Steve has problems compartmentalising. Ranting and hot sex :D



Psych

Concatenation - Gus/Shawn. This is, I think, hands down, my favourite fic for this pairing. Possibly because it matches so well my own take on the dynamic... Because of course this is something Shawn needs and of course he would go looking for it in the wrong places at times. Gus' pov is perfect; patience, uncertainty and sense inevitability and rightness.



Sherlock

Let You Kiss Me (So Sweet and So Soft)
- John/Sherlock. Sherlock keeps kissing John, who is not entirely sure as to why. This is a lovely story with good characterisation, especially when it comes to Sherlock's plans and reasoning.

The Velveteen Doctor
- John/Sherlock. Gradually, John becomes real for Sherlock. Such a lovely premise and even lovelier execution. Includes one of the best first kiss scenes I've read in a long time. Gorgeous piece.



The Professionals

Wolfkammer
- Bodie/Doyle. I actually have a feeling I've recced this already but I can't find the post on my lj so it's likely that I did that only in my head. Anyway. This is a fascinating casefic with a supernatural element and a well researched locale. Bodie and Doyle are sent to Germany to consult on an unusual case and whilst there end up dealing with some personal revelations... Thoroughly enjoyable.

The Spell
- Bodie/Doyle. An entirely charming tale full of arms dealers and self-analysis and just a little bit of magic...

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?

Five Fanvids Guaranteed To Crack You Up


REMEMBER TO LEAVE FEEDBACK TO THE VIDDERS!

Vid: Whatever
Vidder: Luminosity aka [profile] sockkpuppett and [personal profile] sisabet
Fandom: Angel the Series
Genre/pairing:  Crack, Angel/various
Rambling reason why you should watch this vid: Is there anyone out there who hasn’t seen this video yet? When I saw it the first time I laughed so hard I cried. For real people: tears rolling down my cheeks, great big hitching gasps of breath, stomach cramps, legs crossed in desperation, the works. Second, third, fourth, etc. viewings did not improve the situation. Anyway, there’s a reason fans of Angel called it That Dead Gay Show, and this is it. *flails* There’s like symbolism in this here: trains! fire hydrants! geysers! paddles! Wait… that last one is less symbolic and more “‘m gonna smack your ass bitch”, isn’t it? Anyway. Watch the video!!
Download link and info: The vid has spread like wildfire, but you can find it easily from Luminosity's website. About 2/3 down the page.

 

Vid: One Week
Vidder: Di aka [personal profile] di_br
Fandom: House M.D.
Genre/pairing:  Humour, House&Wilson friendship
Rambling reason why you should watch this vid: Okay, so One Week by the Barenaked Ladies is probably one of the most overused songs in fanvids. I don’t care. And neither should you. The song is infectious and perfect for House and Wilson. Despite my fascination with the dysfunctional, sharp, broken edges of their friendship/relationship, there is this mischievous, boyish, prank-playing side to them that is absolutely charming. I’m a big fan of the literal interpretation of lyrics in vids, and the clips chosen for this one are nothing sort of brilliant. This is one of my guaranteed feel-good videos that never fails to put a smile on face.
Download link and info: From the original LJ post here.

 

Vid: Bohemian Like You
Vidder: P.R. Zed
Fandom: Multi-fandom (Starsky & Hutch, Man from U.N.C.L.E., Due South, The Professionals)
Genre/pairing: Humour (meta), the main m/m pairings from the above shows
Rambling reason why you should watch this vid: You know what I said about the overused songs. I’m not sure if Dandy Warhols realised how eagerly their song was seized upon by slashers of all varieties, but when something fits, it fits… The humour in this is almost meta (hence my classification), in that the it compares the similarities between the four shows in terms of characters, relationships and the driving forces behind them. Or maybe it’s just a cleverly compiled collection of matching clips and I’m reading too much into things *shrugs* Whether you want to compare and contrast the subtext in buddy-shows across the ages or just enjoy the pretty men acting silly, this is a video to leave you grinning.

Vid: Stargate Cantina
Vidder: [personal profile] brihana25
Fandom: Stargate SG-1
Genre/pairing: Crack (AU?)
Rambling reason why you should watch this vid: Uhm. So, like the video claims: Stargate is nothing like Star Wars. Except, you know, it kinda is… This is a truly inspired piece of first-grade Crack (with a capital C). I’m not sure how funny this is without knowledge of Stargate and Star Wars canons but armed as I am with both, the video had me in stitches. Jack as Han, Daniel as Luke, Sam as Leia, and poor Teal’c as Chewie… The clip choices are eerily appropriate and of course the song is cracky on its own right. Loads of fun.
Download link and info: From The Alphasite here (there's a d/l link at the bottom)

 

Vid: You’re My Baby
Vidder: Fabella aka [profile] wistful_fever
Fandom: Supernatural RPS
Genre/pairing:  Humour/fluff, Jared/Jensen
Rambling reason why you should watch this vid: If you find yourself blinking at the “fandom”, you’re not alone. But in this day of media exposure, DVD extras, and red carpet humping (wait, that’s just Jared and Jensen, isn’t it. more’s the shame.) it’s entirely possibly to make a RPS fanvid. It is, however, extremely difficult to make a good RPS fanvid. Fabella spins her magic all over the available material and comes up with a ridiculously cute video about two actor boys in luuurve. You may want to schedule a dental check-up after seeing the vid, but oh it’s so worth it. Sweet and funny and unashamedly schmoopy.

Themed Vid Recs of Doom - Edition 1 (weepy angst)

Next edition: Angst, angst, and more angst.
kat_lair: (Default)

Okay people, as promised here is the first of (hopefully) many vid rec sets to come. Thank you to everyone who gave me their opinions on what to rec. I was pleased with the spread of fandoms you wanted represented but frankly disturbed by the fact that everyone asked for angst, woe and sobbing (uh, seriously F-list? Are you quite okay? Is there perhaps something you want to talk about?).

I have two angst folders when it comes to my fanvids: One is for those heartbreakingly delicate vids that make you cry your eyes out and the other is full of hard-hitting raw angst that has you reaching for the nearest shotgun/wraith tazer/stake/sword/etc. rather than a tissue.

I’ve gone for the weep-your-heart-out kind here and have decided to do the other type later. I couldn’t quite include all the fandoms you asked for but don’t worry, they will crop up at some point. I’ve also restricted myself to five vids per set because I think that’s a maximum you can take at a time, especially considering the theme.

Five Fanvids That Make Kat Cry


REMEMBER TO LEAVE FEEDBACK TO THE VIDDERS!


Vid: How to Save a Life
Vidder: [info]obfreak
Fandom:
Stargate Atlantis
Genre/pairing:
Carson character study
Rambling reason why you should watch this vid:
Oh Carson. I originally watched this before Sunday aired and had a wobbly bottom lip. And now that I’ve seen the episode, this video makes me cry into my pillow. One of the appeals of Beckett’s character was the fact that he wasn’t perfect; he had questionable medical ethics, made wrong decisions, and got scared. But his heart was in the right place, tied to his work and to the people around him. This video showcases Carson the doctor, and Carson the healer, in all the imperfect, broken glory, and does so with excellent editing and clip choices, leaving a smooth, professional looking finish.

Rambling reason why you should watch this vid: This may be heresy to some, but Jack/Ianto doesn’t really set my heart on fire. I mean, I like the pairing well enough, but… that’s it. No great OTP passion there, no real emotional attachment. And yet. Yet. This video hit me where it hurts and it made me just ache for them both. By the time I got to the we’d share each other like an island/until exhausted close our eyelids part I was struggling to breathe. The feelings of isolation and helplessness in the face of circumstances come through clear, and the matching of clips to the lyrics is nothing sort of genius.

Vid: Wake Up
Vidder: [info]sacrilicious
Fandom:
Supernatural
Genre/pairing:
Episode-centric, Sam/Dean according to the vidder (though not explicit and could perhaps be interpreted as intense brotherly love)
Rambling reason why you should watch this vid:
To my knowledge, In Your Time of Dying was an episode that left the whole SPN fandom feeling fragile and teary-eyed for weeks. I, being rather weak when it comes to spoilers, watched this before seeing the episode and promptly fell to pieces. Nothing delivers the angst quite like SPN. This video brings home just how close to losing everything that matters Sam came. Oh boys.

Vid: Cannonball
Vidder: [info]ancastar
Fandom:
The Professionals
Genre/pairing:
Relationship-vid, Bodie/Doyle
Rambling reason why you should watch this vid:
I should probably take this opportunity to tell you that I tend to like the more literal lyric-clip interpretation in videos. This means that when the lyrics life taught me to die are matched with a scene of Doyle being shot and lyrics your weakness are accompanied by a clip of Bodie giving the most wicked come hither smile to some woman, I’m so fucking sold that it’s not even funny. That said, this is a wonderfully delicate love-video in the truest meaning of the word. The vidder has managed to capture every significant look and smile and touch between the two men. This vid requires no canon-knowledge whatsoever and you should watch this for the sheer beauty of two men in love.

Vid: Not Only Human
Vidders: [info]killabeez and [info]laurashapiro
Fandom: The X-Files
Genre/pairing: Scully character study, includes some Mulder/Scully moments (but really, the show was one long Mulder/Scully moment anyway)
Rambling reason why you should watch this vid:
As well as being in my will-make-you-weep folder, I’d also classified this video into the folder titled “Larger Than Life” which is for vids so wide-reaching and deep that they leave you awed from the sheer scope of them. Not Only Human traces Scully’s character-arch through the seasons, tying it into the mythology of the show. Scully was many things, but she was a scientists first. And yet, one the central themes of The X-Files was how science and faith, science and supernatural, did not cancel each other out, but when brought together formed something even more powerful. In Scully it was a credo made flesh in the most literal sense possible, and the video shows the strength, fragility and dedication that made her arguably the most interesting female character in recent TV history. While the video is beautiful in its own right, knowledge of canon and X-Files mythology are required for the full impact.

*wipes brow, blows nose*

Darling F-list, you do realise that to write these recs I had to watch all these videos repeatedly, over and over again, until I was a quivering, weepy mess of broken emotions? You understand that, right? Right? *rocks back and forth whilst clutching a pillow*

So uh, you’ll get more angst later but the next set is going to be themed Humour and Crack, and all vids will come from my “The Funneh” folder, okay? This is to save my own sanity. And, by proxy, yours.

Okay people, as promised here is the first of (hopefully) many vid rec sets to come. Thank you to everyone who gave me their opinions on what to rec. I was pleased with the spread of fandoms you wanted represented but frankly disturbed by the fact that everyone asked for angst, woe and sobbing (uh, seriously F-list? Are you quite okay? Is there perhaps something you want to talk about?).

I have two angst folders when it comes to my fanvids: One is for those heartbreakingly delicate vids that make you cry your eyes out and the other is full of hard-hitting raw angst that has you reaching for the nearest shotgun/wraith tazer/stake/sword/etc. rather than a tissue.

I’ve gone for the weep-your-heart-out kind here and have decided to do the other type later. I couldn’t quite include all the fandoms you asked for but don’t worry, they will crop up at some point. I’ve also restricted myself to five vids per set because I think that’s a maximum you can take at a time, especially considering the theme.

Five Fanvids That Make Kat Cry


REMEMBER TO LEAVE FEEDBACK TO THE VIDDERS!


Vid: How to Save a Life
Vidder: [info]obfreak
Fandom:
Stargate Atlantis
Genre/pairing:
Carson character study
Rambling reason why you should watch this vid:
Oh Carson. I originally watched this before Sunday aired and had a wobbly bottom lip. And now that I’ve seen the episode, this video makes me cry into my pillow. One of the appeals of Beckett’s character was the fact that he wasn’t perfect; he had questionable medical ethics, made wrong decisions, and got scared. But his heart was in the right place, tied to his work and to the people around him. This video showcases Carson the doctor, and Carson the healer, in all the imperfect, broken glory, and does so with excellent editing and clip choices, leaving a smooth, professional looking finish.
