It’s Vividcon time again! I had another party again this year, though it was a little smaller than last year with way less food – I just ordered pizza this time. Having a baby means I have a lot less time for stuff like that. But I was excited to still have the party! I’m not linking each vid title to the vid post this year, instead click on the link for the vid show and if a download link is available you can get it there. Also, I watched Club Vivid and Premiers last. By the time I got to those shows I was pressed for time so I didn’t make as many notes for the vids I liked. I just didn’t have time to be as comprehensive as last time. There are lots more great vids shown than I’ve recorded here.

You can see all the vids shown at this year’s con, and all years, here: http://vividcon.info/

I had a Vividcon viewing party at my house again this year and I thought it would be cool to make a list of all the vids I showed at the party, and the others that I really liked but didn't have time to show. It grew into a monster rec list - I don't know if I'll ever do a list this comprehensive again! But I think most of you may find at least a couple of interesting things to watch. If you love vids it’s worth the $40 yearly fee so you can stream everything (including some stuff that isn’t up online!) and get a DVD of some of the new vids.

This morning I saw in a Retweet that @cee_m was requesting recs for fave AU or Constructed Reality vids, and I felt like obliging.  It's been a while since I did a vid rec post.  It got too big for a tweet though, so here's a post with recs.  :)  I'm going by the definition here at Fanlore: A constructed reality vid recontextualizes footage from the source (and sometimes footage from outside sources) in order to tell a story that did not happen in canon. [1]   I really wanted to include some Trek vids that combine AOS/TOS footage, but felt in the end that didn't count as outside footage, or excessive manipulation of the source.  However, I did include shipper vids that use manips and outside footage to sell the ship, since I feel that counts.  So, my recs:

Battlestar: Galactica/Farscape
Hurricane by [personal profile] laurashapiro , Starbuck/Aeryn
Very hot, and also an extremely interesting pairing that I think would really work.


House/Sherlock BBC
Cat's in the Cradle by [livejournal.com profile] daasgrrl
Creates an entirely realistic Father & Son relationship between House and Sherlock.


Inception
Under the Sheets by gaby0189x Arthur/Eames
HOT!  An excellent story of their relationship.

Teardrops by gaby0189x Dom/Mal, Arthur/Eames
The story of how the four came together, and the aftermath of the movie.  Beautiful, touching, heartbreaking.


Merlin
There Are Legends by [livejournal.com profile] ras_elased Merlin/Arthur
Phenomenal tale of love through the ages. 


Smallville
I Swear by [livejournal.com profile] dualbunny, [livejournal.com profile] greensilver, and [livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain, Clark/Lex
OMG if you haven't seen this you need to.  It is CRACK, crack to be watched in a space safe for loud noises.

 



Supernatural
Family Business by [livejournal.com profile] newkidfan, Dean/Castiel
An amazing AU in which Castiel is an assassin and Sam and Dean are the FBI agents hunting him down.

I Want You by Maichan2, Sam/Dean
I love the way Maichan manipulates the footage to make it look like the boys are having an actual conversation about their relationship, with Sam asking and Dean saying no, until he gives in. Maichan actually makes a super-hot 'make the boys do it' type vid into a realistic study of their relationship and how Dean would respond to Sam's requests.  I very nearly put all of Maichan's Sam/Dean vids in this list, but I decided to pick just one since they are all pretty similar.  It was hard to pick.


Torchwood
Papa Don't Preach by fan-eunice and greensilver, Jack/Ianto
Jack's made up his mind, he's keeping his baby.  This is the most adorable and squeeful thing ever.
 

X-Men: First Class
Never Tear Us Apart
by Maichan2, Eric/Charles
Gorgeous, gorgeous use of many different sources to create a relationship through the centuries.  Maichan says "Basically, this vid is an excuse for boys in cravats, suits, and uniforms."

Wow, I watch a lot of TV.  This doesn't include all the shows my husband watches that I end up viewing with him.  Also, I'm not fannishly active for all of these.  First, the TV that's currently airing:

And TV I'm watching off Netflix:

♥The movie Boys Don't Cry needs to come with some serious warnings. Like explicit rape, and violence, and character death. Holy hell, that's one intense movie.  It was so terribly sad, so tragic.  I was very moved by it, but also very disturbed.  I'm still sorting out how I feel about it, I guess.

♥I watched Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog as a fluffy chaser.  And it was amusing and fun, except when it wasn't.  But I enjoyed it.

♥I just realized that I reblogged this twice on tumbler.  I forgot that I reblogged it once, and then liked it so much I reblogged it again.  Heh.  Also, sorry for those who's tumblers I reblogged the crap out of today.  :)

I've been sitting on these recs for a while now, and I figured that I ought to just post them. So, a bunch of vids that have delighted me lately.


Sleeping With Ghosts by [livejournal.com profile] butterfly , Star Trek 2009 and TOS:
Hush It's OK / Dry your eyes / Soulmate dry your eyes / Cause soulmates never die.
This is a really beautiful Kirk/Spock vid that combines footage from TOS and Reboot to show their deep and eternal love. Not only do they get a relationship in TOS, but they are fated to be together in the Reboot timeline because soulmates never die. Really touching, and it reminds me why Kirk/Spock is such an enduring pairing.

When the Sun Goes Down by [livejournal.com profile] buffyann , Queer as Folk:
Gorgeous boys, gorgeous editing and gorgeous source make for one gorgeous vid. The use of motion in this is so perfect, the vid just flows and grooves and *works*. And the boys! This vid makes a strong argument for watching QAF. This is so extremely well done that I can’t really say anything else except GO WATCH IT.

Red by [livejournal.com profile] obsessive24 , Merlin:
Come as you are sweetheart, come as you are / You know you've got nothing to prove. Gorgeous vid for Arthur/Merlin. Arthur is a tragic hero, and Merlin loves him anyway. This was the first Merlin vid I saw, and just from watching it I totally get and ship Arthur/Merlin.

Beast of Burden by [livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain , Merlin:
OMG, does Merlin seriously want to make it with *everyone*, or is the vidder just that awesome? She did a fantastic job making him the desperate slut of Camelot.

Metaphor by [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza , Seah & Margie, Multifandom:
So very funny, I got a big kick out of this one.

Beautiful Dirty Rich by [livejournal.com profile] astolat , American Idol - Adam Lambert:
Gorgeous, sparkley Adam in all his dancing and singing glory! I just got so much squee and joy from this, it had to be recced. She’s also written a ton of Idol RPS that I’m loving and will have to rec.

Heaven Is A Place On Earth by [livejournal.com profile] rhoboat  , Supernatural:
OMG crack SPN! It’s Dean/Castiel set to stadium rock! I totally loved it, every gorgeous, absurd bit. I still haven’t gotten up the nerve to watch the show (yeah, I’m a wuss) but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy the pretty! Plus, I’m really liking Misha Collins. His Twitter is hilarious, and then there is this video of him, Jared and Jensen at a convention that made me go o.0 SRSLY?!?. Nuff said.  (The second picture on that page is from that video, but the actual video is twords the bottom of the post with the other videos of Misha and J2)
 
Bromance? By Clucking Belles, Multifandom:
Fun vid about all the buddy shows we love. In particular I enjoyed the SGA and Psych parts.
pslasher: (Default)
I'm feelin the fic love today and thought I'd rec some of my faves, plus one vid and one podfic.

I was recently reminded of how much I LOVE the Convergence 'verse by [livejournal.com profile] shaenie  (fic) and I felt the need to rec it for posterity.  It is my favorite lotrips fic hands down, and some of my favorite fic of all time.  In it Billy and Dom get together and then include Elijah. NC-17, pretty heavy BDSM and D/s, gorgeous relationship development with lots of tension followed by excellent sex.  She's a skilled writer that imbues the BDSM with love and intimacy, and throws in the angst to really hit your heart.  This is a threesome fic and it's probably the best one I've read.  Usually threesomes have a feel of "the more the merrier" to me.  It doesn't feel real to me, it feels like porn.  That's fine (no problems with porn ;) I just don't get very emotional about them usually.  But in this one the three of them need to be together, it's not a plot device to turn me on, it feels natural and real.  The same with the BDSM.  It's not done for kink, it's what they need.  She has a way of writing that makes it so real to me, I get emotionally moved, not just turned on.  It makes Elijah's journey of discovery so breathtaking.  I can't urge you enough to read it.

Here is what I wrote to her in my feedback for the latest installment:  "I don't even have the words to tell you how much this fic gets to me. I LOVE the intensity of emotion, from lust, passion, tenderness, love and being overwhelmed by them all. That's what makes all the pain and struggle for dominance and angst so damn good for me. Somehow everything you write them doing emphasizes their emotions and motivations, distilling them down to their pure essence. One of the other commenters said that you get a feeling of there being more than just what's on the page, somehow more to the characters and motivations. I liked that, it's so true. It's like the relationship is actually real, it feels so *right*. The way you reveal what you choose to show us excites and fulfills me, yet leaves me hungry for more. It is a profoundly satisfying mix, and it ensures that I will be rereading these for years."

You can read the series at the AO3 Here all at once, or at her LJ with the following links:

Cusp: Part One, Two, Three

Sacrifice by Josephine Darcy.  BSG fic (original series), R, Starbuck/Apollo:  Lots of kissing. 
Plot: Starbuck and Apollo have to pretend to be married to trade for the fuel that the fleet so desperately needs.  It's a beautiful fic, sweet and tender.  I loved it, all of it.  I love the kissing, it was hot and romantic and tender all rolled up together.  I love the way Starbuck recognizes his feelings for Apollo through his physical actions, in a way that his rational brain never allowed him to realize.  I think all the handholding and hugging is very romantic.  I love the way Apollo craves Starbuck's touch, even a simple touch on the cheek or his hand in his hair.  Her descriptions of him in their more tender moments were so beautiful.  I have to admit that I am only familiar with the new show so I see Jamie Bamber in her descriptions of Apollo, but they fit Jamie perfectly to me.  It's all about opening up to love and how sweet that can be.  Even if you don't watch Battlestar Galactica you can read it.  The author gives enough back-story about the characters that the relationship will still be meaningful to you.


Snow On The Sahara by [livejournal.com profile] absrip.  SPN vid R (also on YouTube here):  
"This is a vid about the aftermath of evil!Sam, told from Dean's POV. "   It is officially the vid that will make me watch Supernatural. I have resisted so far because I don't do horror(I scare way too easily and the show has been a bit intense for me) but this is so beautiful I have to see more of the relationship.  Plus Jensen is hot as fuck - that may be my real reason. There is hurt and angst and kissing and hugging - the vidder uses several manips and they are so good I really couldn't tell if they were manips or part of the show.  Absolutely gorgeous.  I usually don't do vid slash because fic can be so much more graphic (thus so much more fun :) and I'm not really into Wincest, but this one was done so well it just melted my heart.

So Snow was the straw that broke the camel's back, but [livejournal.com profile] strippedpink's J2 fics have been buttering me up for the fall.  Particularly her New OTP 'Verse.  NC-17.  It's amazingly sexy.  It's Smallville-era!Jensen and Gilmore Girls-era!Jared and how they get together before the show.  It's got really sexy dialog and it's hot and dirty and just so good.


I recently heard my first podfic.  It was Rebuilding Babel by [livejournal.com profile] fiercelydreamed, read by [livejournal.com profile] wintercreek.  SGA McKay/Sheppard, R: 
Rodney is injured and looses the ability to understand language, and to speak it. John helps him learn to use an ancient tool to communicate in a very unusual way.  She utterly breaks Rodney down to his very core and exposes his soul, and then gives him John to rebuild himself around.  It's so beautiful in a heartwrenching way.  Brilliant concept, and so well written. Dramatic with lots of angst, but also the occasional funny part to lighten the mood. Very well read, the reader lends an urgency to the story that is spot on.  I loved it and stayed up way too late to finish it.

Dog Tag Porn by [livejournal.com profile] xela_fic - SGA fic McKay/Sheppard NC-17: 
Major submission by Rodney, heavy BDSM and an unusual collar.  I love the way the author gets inside their heads.  Rodney's submission feels real and makes *me* feel like flying, and John's so perfect as the top who knows how to push all of Rodney's buttons, as the one in charge.  So so good.


Submission Games By R. Cooper - CSI fic NC-17 Nick/Greg:  Greg comes home early and Nick is surprised by some things, namely Greg in a skirt and collar.  Crossdressing, kink, first time for Nick, minor D/s issues.  I really love the way this one is written.  Nick is shocked to find out about this side of Greg, and the shock and later anticipation just comes through so well in the writing.  It feels exhilarating to read about Nick discovering how much he responds to Greg.

You can find more of the fic that I love at my delicious account, and check out my 5star tag for my absolute favorites.
