I know I've pimped this vid before, but oh, it's just so lovely...

So, Impish Girl read ALL the Harry Potter books (for the first time) over the past couple of weeks. I'm not what you'd call fannish, but I do have a favourite vid: Snakes on a Plane by [livejournal.com profile] dualbunny. Which I of course showed to Impish Girl, and she loved it.

Then she went looking for other vids, and the only one she liked was this one - and damn, but it might be better. Well... as the vidder says, Skyfall could have been written for Harry Potter, and the brilliant editing of the vid manages to capture the brilliance and epicness of the final battle (as well as all the other things going on in the story).

Vidder's notes:

Ok, so this is what I saw in my head since the moment I heard the song. I was like: 'It was inspired by HP or what??'... And when I found out its real purpose I didn't stop associating it with HP. So it took me many months to create this and to think it over and I fixed it a lot of times... And I really hope you enjoy the result. This is my vision and perception of the lyrics.

It's one of those vids where it felt like I wasn't breathing throughout... So I had to share. ♥

"Have you watched the History of Japan?"

"YES!" I replied immediately. "Yes I have! Isn't it amazing?"

And so I thought I should share it with all of you also, since I know that many of you aren't on Tumblr where it is currently spreading like wildfire:

(One of the greatest benefits of being on Tumblr is being familiar with all the memes etc. my daughters reference on a regular basis.)

VID REMASTER: It's the End of the World As We Know It by Luminosity & Kamil (BtVS)

The original vid was made from VHS and off-air rips and when truly ugly video compression reigned. With Lum's kind permission [livejournal.com profile] jetpack_monkey set about remastering the vid from DVD/iTunes sources, the results of which you can view/download at the link above.

And oh, it's worth it! ♥

(With many thanks to sueworld for the original rec!)


Also a belated Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] flowsoffire! Hope you had a brilliant day!

RL ate me alive, and this is only brief visit, sorry. But I bring a vid rec:

Everybody Wants To Rule The World//The Master and Amy Pond by ImmortalSparrow.

AU Doctor Who video, in case that's not obvious. But damn it's well done. Gives me shivers. The editing is exquisite!

ETA: Also on YOUTUBE. :)

Truly delightful - it'll make you smile, guaranteed!

And then, from Tumblr...


'summary': 21 seconds of Kylo Ren to Evanescence... I'm trying not to cry, it's so perfect.

[personal profile] owlboy made River Song Crack vid.

And you should all go watch it! :)

[livejournal.com profile] kerkevik_2014 has just finished (re-)posting a series of 10 drabbles for me that he started three years ago?

I'd recommend starting by reading 22, which is the origin story of the 'verse, and sets things out beautifully. (And is just a beautiful fic, full stop.)

And then, the easiest thing is probably just to go to the first drabble, and then keep clicking on 'Next entry' as they were all posted in order. :) Some of them more like poetry, than prose.

Fic: A Few Things and a Lizard by [livejournal.com profile] beer_good_foamy. The fix-it fic to end all fix-its.

Vid: We Got History (Multifandom) by [livejournal.com profile] such_heights

(I'll do my best to write a Christmas post, honest.)
elisi: (Clara (FACE))
[personal profile] purplefringe made a vid for S9/the S9 finale.

And you should all watch it because it's beautiful and heartbreaking and gorgeous.

MAJOR spoilers for all of S9, obviously:

Clara Who: The Impossible Narrator by Janie. Excellent, excellent look at Clara's role in the narrative/as narrator. (Spoilers for all of S9.)


And - because this one was bloody brilliant:

elisi: (Metaphors by promethia_tenk)
Am hoping to be able to write something before Saturday, although I'm waiting for next week's episode so I can find out what the symbolic/metaphorical implications are for the story/'verse, so we'll see...

For now:

Phil Sandifer: Under the Lake Review

[livejournal.com profile] janie_aire: The Chair Agenda
elisi: (Metaphors by promethia_tenk)
I'm working on meta, honestly. But for those of you curious about where [livejournal.com profile] janie_aire went, she now hangs out with Phil Sandifer. And here are her thoughts of the S9 opener:

The Witch's Familiar (Podcast/The Alchemist's Pupils)
elisi: (12 & Clara)
I am completely subjective when it comes to this vid, as I helped beta it. But OTOH I feel super qualified to recommend it, because I have watched it about a million times and I love it more every time. So go & watch & leave lovely comments:

Pompeii by [personal profile] purplefringe

summary: does it almost feel like you've been here before?

It is a vid about Twelve & Clara, learning to get to know each other (again), and their journeys of self-discovery. Which sounds terribly ponderous, so you should just go watch it and bask.
