I don't have the brain at the moment to say anything about Doctor Who, except that I am loving Bill and everything she is, and I continue to adore Twelve, and the chemistry between them is glorious, and this latest episode in particular was everything I dreamed of and more. I will hopefully have meta thoughts soon (certainly The Pilot was crammed full of all of the usual Moffat tropes, about which I have already written copious words) but at the moment I have no energy for anything more complicated than "look at their faces!" (they are REALLY good faces.)

But speaking of 'look at their faces' - I received the most wonderful Doctor/River vid from [personal profile] jetpack_monkey as my [community profile] equinox_exchange gift, which you should go and watch. It's really fun and dynamic and emphasises the playful nature of their timey-wimey relationship. And the lyrics are perfect, and used to great effect!

AND I was very, very lucky and also received a treat in the form of a DS9 Sisko family vid by the wonderful [personal profile] cosmic_llin, which made my cold robotic heart grow about sixteen sizes, and made me cry. I just. They are SUCH a perfect space family, I don't know what to do about it. And this vid captures that brilliantly.

I defaulted on my own assignment. It was the right decision - I had very stupidly offered a big fandom that I only belatedly realised I wasn't really equipped to vid, and then obviously matched on that fandom, and that fandom only. I gave it a shot, and put off defaulting for a really long time, but gave up in the end. I feel really bad about it - even though I know it happens all the time and that's what the 'default' option is there for, and some amazing picnh-hitter stepped up so my recipient still got a great gift, blah blah blah - and am probably not going to sign up for the next equinox exchange. I have come to realise that I just can't vid to a time limit or to other people's specifications. But I'm glad the exchange exists, and can't wait to see the next outpouring of new vids in the autumn.

Yay for your lovely vids!

I know what you mean about vidding to specifications. I hope that I do vid for Festivids and EE in the future, but probably would do so making treats rather than signing up. In fact I signed up as an EE mod specifically because I loved the idea but knew there was a good chance I wouldn't participate as a vidder.

I don't think you're the only one who does Festivids like that. I certainly do.

I haven't been watching Doctor Who, but I think I might catch up on those new episodes because I love Bill already from what I've seen of her on tumblr, and her and the Doctor look like a great team.

Those vids are so good!

I get you about defaulting - I had a case of too much going on in February and had to default on Festivids this year (despite matching on a relatively short tv source + several safety options) and I felt terrible about it. I defaulted quite late too because I was still hoping I'd manage to make it in the nick of time (as I often do... I'm bad with deadlines).
