Vividcon time again! No party this year, life was just too hectic for that. I’m lucky I even got to watch every single vid! I almost thought I wouldn’t get to. I’m very sad to hear that next year will be the last Vividcon! I have loved this con for almost a decade (even though I only attended once) and there will be a true void when it’s over. 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, again I just didn’t have time to be as comprehensive as I used to be with this. There are lots more great vids shown than I’ve recorded here. Presented in the order that I watched the shows.

You can see all the vids shown at this year’s con, and all years, here: http://vividcon.info/ Each of the vid shows is listed below in bold, and you can easily find them at the above link.
*Denotes vids that I’m really excited about



Premiers
Battleflag by Gwyneth | Star Wars

*Monsters of the cosmos by CherryIce | Thor
I really loved this! It was so different as an audio source, and I loved that it was all sciency for Dr. Foster.

Spell by Hollywoodgrrl | Carol
Interesting period piece that also has a lesbian relationship – even though the relationship seems to be the typical doomed thing. But it looks like there is more to it than that, and I’m interested…

Handclap by elipie & kuwdora | Power Rangers
This looked pretty cool! I’ve added it to my Netflix list even though part of me is going “……Power Rangers???? :facepalm:”

She Keeps Me Warm by kiki_miserychic | Inside Out
Really sweet, poignant vid that made me want to watch the movie.

Clean Light by skygiants | Steven Universe
I’ve never seen this show, but the vid was all about friends as found family and I loved it.

Stray Italian Greyhound by Butterfly | Yuri!!! On Ice
Finally I get to see a bit about this show! I really enjoyed this, and totally see why fandom has embraced it.

White Flag by Trelkez | Timeless
Looks like an awesome ensemble show with time travel!

Incredible Thoughts by pipsqueaky | Multi
Ha, a bizarre, awesome vid about Keanu Reeves.

This Is a Trent Rezner Song by rhoboat | Star Trek AOS
A fun vid that satirizes the seriousness of the Trek franchise through the new movies.

Wake Me Up Before You Go by sisabet | New Girl
Looks like a fun RomCom.

Everything Stops For Tea by Valoise | Multi
There’s lots of tea in fandom!

Shape of You by Butterfly | Multi
Lots of fun queer relationships.

*Wolves Without Teeth by Dar | Sense8
Awesome vid for Sense8, I’ve really got to finish this season.

Overcome by sweetestdrain | Star Wars Rogue One
Poignant look at the crew that made the destruction of the Death Star possible.

*Carry That Weight by Anoel | Star Wars
The women of Star Wars, and how representation has been a long time coming. Awesome and inspiring.



Welcome to Vividcon
Mood Swinging Man by Jill and Kay | X-Files
Interesting and moody x-files vid.

That's All by SDWolfpup | Highlander
Really good and interesting early After Effects digital manipulation work. I was impressed!



Auction
That's What's the Matter by Grammarwoman | Star Wars
Lol a funny look at the Star Wars series.

Blackbird by sweetestdrain | Harry Potter
Lovely, melancholic song for the quiet strength of professor McGonagall and the other characters through difficult times.

So much due South already in the con!



Cosplay
A lot of great creativity in this show. It was neat to see how some were more traditional music video type things, and others were more traditional vid type things with a narrative. I had never heard of cosplay music videos so this was a great introduction.

Fantasy Boyfriends! (How to Be a Heartbreaker – Free! Cosplay MV Parody) by o0Lemon0o | Free! Iwatobi Swim Club
Fun little vid.

Say Something by Lume Cosplay | Attack on Titan
Really interesting combination of 'singing' and action shots.

Emperor's New Clothes by Victor Lockhart | Black Butler
Kinda creepy and well done. I'm curious about the shot at the end that looked like the same person on the screen twice, and how they did that.

Accidentally In Love by Buddy Cosplay | Naruto
So cute!

Party Like a Russian by Rintamasunnta | Yuri!!! On Ice
Very cool skating and professional-looking camera work.

Genghis Khan! By NyxRising Industries | Hannibal
I absolutely don't watch Hannibal, but I was intrigued by the 'comedy' tag on this and it did indeed make me grin. Go figure. I guess that's why they say the fandom is WAY different than the source material.



Go Long
*Expo by lim | Iron Man
Oooooooo I love this as a character study of Tony! I still really enjoy the first Iron Man and Tony as a character, and this vid just dug deep into him. The pace was excellent throughout and didn't feel long.

*Some Time Around Midnight by bop_radar | Battlestar Galactica (2003)
An excellent look at Lee and the Starbuck/Apollo relationship. It gave me feels, and I haven't had feels for that show in a while. It’s funny, I would definitely have been an OT3 shipper for Anders/Kara/Lee had I seen this show five years after I did. As it was, I could never decide and really wanted her to be with both but didn’t know that was a thing. Now I’m somewhere between shipping her with either man depending on what I’m watching/reading at the time, and shipping the OT3.  Once I have an initial OTP/3 developed it's often hard to move me off of it.



Club Vivid
Telephone by One Hour Vid Team | Multi
Fun dancing.

Move Your Body by kuwdora | Fate of the Furious
A little spoilery since I haven’t seen the movie, but fun and makes me want to see it.

*I Ship It by Grammarwoman | Multi
Ahah I love it! Love the song, love that she included several of my ships.

Weird People by Anoel | Fandom
Fandom is weird, and I love it.

Bad Girl by Kitty | K-POP: Trouble Maker
Fun dancing.

*Light ‘Em Up by bessyboo | Ghostbusters (2016)
Awesome vid!

*Chase You Down by Gwyneth | Captain America
Steve, and the people he loves.

Ready Steady Go by M’lyn and Gwyneth | Multi
Fun car chases.

Filthy Mind by SE | Multi
Dancing and danger. Always excellent.

There Is a Light That Never Goes Out by ohvienna | Star Wars
Fun dance song, except there’s more going on with Star Wars than just fun explosions and this vid captures that.

I’m Not a Virgin Anymore by Luminosity | Highlander
As always, I’m captivated by a Highlander vid despite never having seen the show. This makes it look very exciting. :D

Ex’s and Oh’s by Roarkshop | Supernatural
Still fun!

Do My Thing by Laura Shapire | The Heat
Also still fun every time!

Warning: Might Lead to Mixed Dancing by seekingferret | Multi
Interesting compilation of lots of fantastic Jewish characters dancing.

Live In This City by heresluck | Ghostbusters (2016)
Fun ghostbusters vid!

Around the Bend by Danegen | Multi
Ladies goin' fast. What's not to love?

*Worth It by Rhea314 | Multi
Ladies over 50 are worth it. Loved it.

Goin' Down For Real by Anoel | Multi
Always sexy lesbians.

M.I.L.F $ by Moon | Carol
Interesting looking lesbian movie.

Bizarre Love Triangle by rhoboat | Deadpool
Fun Deadpool vid.

Tubthumping by sisabet and Trelkez | Thor
Fun song for Thor, I smiled.





Sweet Sweet Love
Skinny Genes by Charmax | Rizzoli & Isles
Made me miss Rizzoli & Isles

Be My Yoko Ono by Dayln | Stargate Atlantis
Made me smile. Love these boys always. <3

King of Anything by Cappy | Coffee Prince
As always, this vid gives me feels for a show I've never seen. So excellent.

One Voice by cosmic_llin | Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
I haven't seen much Deep Space Nine, so this vid was very intriguing. It looked like a happy poly family on the show, and I really hope that's what it is! It was a sweet vid.

Come and Find Me by chaila | Imagine Me & You
Oooo interesting looking lesbian movie! I hope it's as sweet as the vid looks.

*When You Were Young violace | Captain America
Touching Steve/Bucky vid that gave me feels.

I Wanna Dance by jarrow | Glee
Tons of fun dancing, and the lesbian couple from Glee! I never watched the show so I don't know much about the couple, but the vid was really cute and made me smile.



Vidding As Poetry
*Orono Flow (Data's Dream) by FG aka Gayle, ShadowSongs and Tashery | Multi
Really cool look at sailing over many fandoms. Spoiler! I didn't read the vid title before watching so I was surprised by the ending. It was really cool to think of it all as a digital dream by Data, though I haven't seen that episode so I don't know if that reading is correct.

Let's Play a Game by pingvi | Multi
Interesting little tidbit of visuals.

Moonlight by bradcpu | Sleepy Hollow
Very atmospheric vid for a show I have enjoyed.

*The Tree by newkidfan | Stargate Atlantis
I have loved this vid since I saw it almost a decade ago, and it's still stunning. It is truly visual poetry. It's one of the first McShep vids I ever saw and it was formative for my view of their relationship. I haven't thought about it in a while but I'm so glad to see it here.

*Flow by lim | Multi
I'm not sure what to say about this vid. Both "flow" and "visual poetry" are accurate phrases to use, but it seems to be somehow so much more. The vid pinged something in me the first time I watched it, and again when watching this year's stream, but I don't know how to describe it. It's just a really penetrating vid for me.

Paradise Lost by En Quatre | Shinsekai Yori
Pretty, sad, emotional vid.

Keep Your Picture Clear by obsessive24 | House of Cards
A great visual look at some (I think) grey characters (but I haven't seen the show).

Journey by SDWolfpup | Journey
Great choice for this vid show, beautiful visuals and editing.

Boom Boom Ba by Charmax | Xena: Warrior Princess
Another vid I have loved for almost a decade, and an excellent choice for this show.



Vividcon Rare Cuts
Fashion Is Danger by valoise | Star Trek: The Original Series
All the good and LOLtastic costumes of Star Trek TOS.

Fragile by Eunice and Myrtle | Buffy the Vampire Slayer
The fragile difficulty of life in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Everybody Wang Chung Tonight by Luminosity | Ancient Aliens
Cracktastic, befitting the series itself.



Challenge: Resistance
Something Wicked by Dar | Harry Potter
One of the few vids I've seen set to classical music. Very dramatic, good use of the highs and lows of the song.

Trouble by sweetestdrain | Star Wars films
Nice look at Lando, he doesn't get a lot of exposure.

She's a Rebel by bessyboo | Star Wars
The awesomeness that is Princess Leia and Carrie Fisher.



Inspiration
Come On by Gwyneth | Flashpoint
Interesting mix of humor and drama. Made me curious to watch the show.

Landsailer by skygiants | The Legend of Korra
Cool vid for Legend of Kora. Makes me curious to watch it.

Give It Up by jarrow | Multi
Great multi 80's movies vid.



Vividcon Classic: Big Emotion (2011)
Dante's Prayer by Killa and WOAD Society | Star Trek TOS
Powerful and touching. A classic Kirk and Spock vid for a reason. Gave me feels.

Give It Up by Jarrow | Multi
So much dancing fun!

What a Good Boy by Gianduja Kiss | Young Americans
Looks like an interesting show, particularly the bits with Ian Somerholder. Makes me interested to watch.

Dreams by Eunice | Marley & Me
Damn, what a way to finish out this show! I've never seen this movie, but the vid made me cry

I've been reading a lot of long fics lately, both slash and het.

24/7
by [info]xanthestories, also on the AO3 here:  X-Files, Skinner/Mulder, NC-17.  Slave fic with very heavy BDSM, kink and D/s
This one is very long and very intense in every way.  Mulder signs a slavery contract with a Master without even knowing his identity.  The master turns out to be Skinner, and he sets out to train Mulder right away.  It starts out as a physical need for Mulder, but he grows to realize that the relationship means so much more to him than that.  If any of the warnings above squick you in the least don't read at all, it's really that intense.  It has some of the most amazing BDSM scenes I've ever read, both private scenes between Skinner and Mulder and group scenes with their friends.  It's intensely emotional through most of it, both the despair / anger and love / joy type of emotions.  And after a bit Skinner and Mulder even relax enough to play;  there is a lot of roleplay and dressing up.  The slave aspect is heavily accented and very well carried out.  Even though slave fic isn't one of my biggest kinks it was so beautifully written here that I began to love what it did for Mulder.  I don't watch the X-Files, but I recommend this fic for anyone who enjoys their sex downright intense.

Le Vertu abandonnée (Virtue Forsaken)
by [info]arieltachna and [info]sileyascribbles:   Lotrips, NC-17, Orlando/Viggo with a little Bean/Orlando and Karl/Bean
Rich and bored aristocrats in pre-revolutionary France play high-stakes games of passion and betrayal.  This one is pure romance.  Orlando seeks to seduce Viggo, but finds more than he bargained for.  It's very sweet, and so worth reading. 

Der Falke (The Falcon)
by [info]arieltachna and [info]sileyascribbles:  Lotrips, Karl/Bean, NC-17 BDSM Sequel to Virtue Forsaken. 
Having suffered ruination in French society, Marquis Sean Bean opens a new chapter of his life by traveling to Germany with Prince Karl-Heinz von Urban, in the fashion of what he thinks of as a trained body servant. But he discovers their relationship is far, far more complex.  I love Karl and Sean together and they are written so well here.  Sean struggles to figure out how to make Karl keep him, while Karl tries to show Sean how to stay.  This one has a fair bit of angst with a lot of rough, possessive, kinky sex.  Both of these fics made me sigh and grin like crazy over the characters.


Real forever if by [info]astolat:  American Idol, Cook/Archuleta, Mature, 'bonding' Archuleta spontaneously 'bonds' to Cook. 
American Idol fic!  This is actually the first AI fic I've read, but I knew even while watching that David Cook is just perfectly slashable.  He has some unquantifiable sensuousness that just oozes out of him and screams "Slash me!"  I wasn't too sure about Archie, but astolat made his sweetness work perfectly with the story.  It's sweet and hot and it made my heart clench up for them at the end.  I've gotta find more, maybe even some rough Cook/Simon...


Lately I've been really into Firefly fic, River/Jayne in particular.  I don't usually do het in fic, but the hard, dangerous fierceness of both characters is very attractive.  They can do both rough or sweet equally.

Thoughts colored Ugly by [info]lit_gal  NC-17, Rayne, slavefic, bdsm
Jayne's thinking too hard, and River shows up, making him face parts of himself that he doesn't really want to face.  Jayne winds up getting himself sold into slavery for trying to avoid the issue.  River's really persistent and dangerous, though not quite sane, and Jayne's really introspective.  The dialog and sex are excellent, and there is some fantastic fighting and rough handling between them that you don't usually get in het.  Lit_gal also got the submissive part of Jayne down pat, it's a joy to read their relationship as it develops.

The Broken series by Mik109  NC-17, Rayne, rough sex
Jayne and River have sex as a way to save River from a cult that wants her virginity. Then River must find a way to fix Jayne since the experience 'broke' him.  There is a lot of angst in the beginning that leads to very hot sex and a very possessive Jayne.  This one's fantastic, I really love Jayne possessive and hopelessly in love with River and defending them against the rest of the crew.  "Morning After" Jayne is superb.

Partner Ship by [info]fabledfigment
Jayne and River court for two weeks after they realize they have feelings for each other. Long, very sweet and romantic.

Serious Games
by [info]fabledfigment
There's fighting, talking, and sex, then Jayne's never letting go of River.
