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."

I had the good fortune recently to be a beta for two excellent projects that I wanted to rec to you all.

Parallel Motion (Or: Fate, Crunchy Cheetos, and a Bunch of Other Things Chris Pine Didn't Believe In) by [livejournal.com profile] thalialunacy, art by [livejournal.com profile] karneol_visionStar Trek Reboot RPS, Chris/Karl, NC-17, knotting and Mpreg
In a world with a happily secret, slightly oversexed, Hollywood-centered underbelly of werewolves, Chris Pine is a reluctant hipster alpha just trying to make a name for himself and still maintain the freedom to flip off the paps and wear however many white t-shirts he wants. He has no interest in being weighed down by centuries of tradition and the responsibilities of his station; he just wants to get laid.
Then he meets Karl Urban, and finds out all the lore he never believed is actually true--there is such a thing as a perfect mate. The only hitch? This one's married. Oh, and human.

I had the pleasure of reading along as Thalia wrote this, and it was so much fun seeing her bring this to life.  The concept of a werewolf alternate world was new to me, as was knotting, but both ideas were really fun.  I always love Urbine, but she turned the tables on me by writing Chris as the dominant in the relationship, the Alpha Male as it were.  I typically read Karl as the dom (in relationships with power exchanges), but damn did Thalia make me enjoy toppy!Chris!  There was angst and destiny and babies, and a fantastic Pinto friendship.  And as always, Parallel Motion sparkled with her brand of witty and emotive dialog.  I very much enjoyed this fic.  The art for this is also amazing.  It's gorgeous and heartbreaking and so evocative. 


The Winter of Banked Fires fic by [livejournal.com profile] yahtzee63 read by [livejournal.com profile] podcath, [livejournal.com profile] crinklysolution, [livejournal.com profile] luzula, [livejournal.com profile] helens78, [livejournal.com profile] heyiya, [livejournal.com profile] rhea314, and [livejournal.com profile] reena_jenkins.
X-Men movies, from First Class through XM3, Erik/Charles, Marie/Logan, Raven/Hank, NC-17
Charles Xavier has returned from the dead -- but is lost within his own mind. Rogue has cast aside her own power and doesn't know where she fits in the world any longer. The production of synthetic Cure means mutantkind itself is newly at risk. And Magneto, turned human against his will, is in despair until the day he feels a familiar consciousness tugging at his own --
This is an absolutely amazing fic.  Yahtzee did an excellent job of taking the existing cannon and remaking it into something powerful and rewarding.  The characters were believable, the plot was exciting, and the relationships were phenomenal.  Truly excellent relationships between Erik/Charles and Marie/Logan.  And the podfic, which was what I helped beta listen, was an excellent union of many readers making the story come to life.  So many wonderful readers!  This fic is long, and the POV shifts from chapter to chapter.  Each reader read one particular character, so each chapter had a new reader.  It was an excellent premise for a group podfic, and [livejournal.com profile] podcath did a wonderful job of tying all the chapters together.
