I will ramble more about this later, when I'm home, but for now - this vid is for my wonderful and brilliant bff [personal profile] such_heights, whose birthday was a few weeks ago. <3 She loves this song, and this show, and she deserves ALL THE NICE THINGS IN THE WORLD, so here you go buddy. Have 4 minutes of the beautiful Bill Potts smiling at the universe, and the beautiful Twelfth Doctor smiling at Bill.

Huge, huge thanks to [personal profile] elisi, who watched several near-identical iterations of this vid and found lovely and helpful things to say about all of them, and whose Doctor Who meta continues to be the greatest.

Sooooooo.....I had a dream. Or rather, A VISION. From the PROPHETS of Bajor. 'You must make a vid', they said. 'You must vid...THE GARAK.'

And I said, 'The Garak? What is this?'

And they showed me. And lo, it was good.

...ok, what actually happened was this:


And then I did nothing. And then, almost a year later, this happened:


And still I did nothing. And then, finally, over a year since I was first blessed with a Vision from the Prophets, I commenced my life's work:


And so, dear friends, I humbly submit to you this vid, towards which the Prophets guided me, almost two years ago. It just premiered at Vidukon. I hope it brings you joy.

ETA: wrote this in a hurry before the Vidukon premieres show, and so I FORGOT, like the terrible person I am, to thank the amazing [personal profile] bironic and [personal profile] cosmic_llin for their wonderful and supremely patient beta comments, and also [personal profile] such_heights, [personal profile] raven and Flatmate L for their enthusiasm for Garak being punched in the face.

Er, so, I also made a festivid treat for [personal profile] such_heights because that is a thing I do. I actually made this before I made my assignment (and thought I was going to have to default on my assignment) and then proceeded to lie about it through my teeth to an unsuspecting [personal profile] such_heights, because I am a terrible person and a frighteningly good liar when I want to be.

She wanted a vid about Matilda and Miss Honey, and their lovely relationship, and so that is what she got <3 I'm glad you like it, Arthur. Thank you to [personal profile] shinyjenni and [personal profile] cosmic_llin for betaing and enthusiasm!

Festivids reveal time! This year I received a completely delightful vid for the TV series of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by [personal profile] gwenfrankenstien set to Janelle Monae :-D It brought happiness to my soul. Arthur Dent is absolutely NOT afraid to freak out! You should all go and watch it and smile.

Meanwhile, I made a vid for Galaxy Quest! Never give up. Never Surrender. )

HAI FRIENDS. I have not posted in a looong time. This is what happens when there's a WHOLE YEAR without Doctor Who, and I don't have 5000-word meta posts I need to get out of my head before I can go to sleep. (Soon that will not be the case. My show is coming back! Aaaaaah.)

So what have I been doing? Well, mostly, I've been having a lot of feelings about Star Trek. Like, a LOT of feelings. )

Just got home from Vidukon! As ever, it was a completely wonderful weekend of vids, squee, too much sugar, more vids, more squee, and really excellent company. <3 Always one of the highlights of my year. I am too tired to do anything like a proper con report, but will note for those of you who weren't there that you can watch most of the vids shown at the con website, which is really comprehensive and awesome. I ran a vidshow called 'This Will Always Be Our Home' which seemed to go down well, and there were amazing shows on themes as diverse as Aliens, Revolution, Vampires, Fairytales, a nostalgic look back at what people were vidding 10 years ago, and lots of other great ideas. There was also Premieres! Oh, there were so many wonderful things, I just. All my friends are so talented. <3 Many feels were had. Also, I spent much of the weekend covered in glitter, and randomly yelling at people, 'Jesus Christ, I thought you were a fucking BEAR'. Those two facts are unconnected. In conclusion: VIDUKON, YOU GUYS.

Anyway, it was also [personal profile] such_heights' birthday yesterday, so I made her a little vidlet of some of our favourite BFFs being BFFs. It is not the most polished thing I've ever made, but it is made with all the love in the world, because [personal profile] such_heights is the greatest, you guys, and I'm not sure what I've done to deserve her as a best friend. She was happy for me to put this online, so here it is.

Festivids reveeeeeeals! I got two wonderful vids - This Sullen Welsh Heart, a Pride vid by [personal profile] futuransky about politics and protest and hope and despair and carrying on fighting anyway. <3 It defies my feeble attempts at explanation, you should all go and watch it and cry.

I also got a treat in the form of You're My Best Friend, aka THE CUTEST SIR IAN & SIR PATRICK BFF VID EVER from my actual bff [personal profile] such_heights(<33333!). It's just a fucking delight. LOOKIT THEM. THEY LOVE EACH OTHER. We are totally going to be like that when we're old and even dorkier than we are now.

I totally meant to make treats this year, but was tragically short on inspiration, and also distracted making two kind of spontaneous Doctor Who vids....oops.

But - HILARIOUSLY - I was actually assigned [personal profile] such_heights as my FV recipient this year! It had to happen sometime, I guess?! We actually matched on several different things, and I can't even remember if this was one of them. But her request for a Verity and Waris vid caught my eye. I promised her that I hadn't made her a treat this year, so she totally thought she had one up on me by making me the aforementioned CUTEST SIR IAN & SIR PATRICK BFF VID EVER. Then It turned out that I'd made her a vid anyway. MWA HA HA. She guessed this vid was from me before even watching it. The metadata was a bit of a clue :-) More ramblings about that here )

Anyway, enough talking now, I'm the only person who cares about all this backstory - here's the vid:

Happy More Joy Day, everyone! <3

I have never made anything for More Joy Day before, but have wanted to ever since I first found out about it. And this year, I have a vid! \o/ I didn't, technically, make it for today, but this seemed a good time to post it, particularly given that it was already out of date the moment I finished it.

Ramblings about Christmas, several weeks late )

This is for all of you. All of my friends, those of you I have met and those of you I haven't. All of the lovely people who watch my vids and read my meta and leave wonderful comments. And all of you whose vids I watch and whose meta I read and whose fic I read and whose art I enjoy and who generally contribute to making my tiny slice of the world a better place. I love you, I'm glad you exist.

(Yes, it's Vienna Teng AGAIN. No, I still don't care. I've wanted a vid to this song for aaaaaages, but every winter when it occurs to me to think about vidding it, I'm already embroiled in Festivids. No, of course I'm not procrastinating on my Festivid this year. Why do you ask. What are you talking about. Who even asked you. La la la.)

Wow, never have lyrics from the vid I'm working on been SO RELEVANT to the act of working on the vid.

So, er, I started this one in February /o\ And to be fair, I did make fully two thirds of it in less than a week. It was just the remaining third that took, um, six months. I think that's a new record. (My last Clara vid was a mere two months late.) Most of that time was spent opening FinalCut, shuddering, and closing it again, so perhaps it only really took one month, spread over six months. ANYWAY, it was not supposed to be posted a mere 3 weeks before Series 9, but I'm too excited about it being A MERE THREE WEEKS UNTIL SERIES NINE to care much.

As usual, thanks go to the lovely [personal profile] such_heights for watching a millionty drafts of this, and making soothing noises at me when I complained at her about it. (I'm sorry I do that so much <3) And also for providing the last-minute technical support I still need, despite this being my 31st vid. Oops.

(Speaking of which - if anyone knows how to deal with those FUCKING SQUARE PIXELS that are marring their beautiful faces, please let me know. I don't know why they're there, I've never had this problem before, I want to throw my laptop out the window /o\)

ALSO on this occasion, huge thanks to the amazing [personal profile] elisi, without whom I would definitely never have finished this stupid vid. She went waaaaaay above and beyond the call of vid-beta-ly duty, and sent the most *incredible*, detailed, encouraging, thoughtful, analytical emails, in response to my somewhat pathetic call for help. She also helped me to clarify just what I was actually trying to say - there are one or two parts of this vid that were constructed clip-by-clip with her, via email. I hope you really did enjoy the process as much as you said you did. <3 This vid is for you! :-)

My entire DW rlist is just all my friends posting vids, and it's GLORIOUS. I need to go and comment on them all to tell you how great they are.

In the meantime, I'm going to join the party! Last weekend was Vidukon, which is always one of the highlights of my year and this year was no exception. (Despite me being a massive failboat and not getting my auction vid done. Oops.) ANYWAY, I did manage to premiere my Sleepy Hollow vid, and watching a whole bunch of people laugh at it was one of the most enjoyable things ever :-D Ichabod Crane, sir, what even are you??
