vidukon \o/!

So last weekend was Vidukon and it was really delightful. It was so nice to get the train with the London fangirl collective and see lots of familiar faces as well as meet some first time attendees like [profile] fray_adjacent and [personal profile] odessie.

Because Lithium Doll is some kind of wizard, you can enjoy the entire con from the comfort of your own home via the website, with links to the vids shown in each show, and notes up for some of the panels and even a video of Sunday's Year in Vidding panel that I ran.

Some personal favourite new-to-me vids over the weekend were:

Sexyback by [personal profile] odessie (Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries)

Goody Two Shoes by [personal profile] laurashapiro and pipsqueaky (due South)

Creating Something Beautiful by sinycatarina (Studio Ghibli)

Long Live by [personal profile] cosmic_llin (Star Trek) - I put the premieres show together so I knew this was going to be a hit, but seeing a lot of the room in tears as the lights came up was still quite something. I just, I have an awful lot of Star Trek feelings and this vid captures *all of them*, it's overwhelming. <333

The whole premieres show was really wonderful, a great range of sources and mood.

Other highlights included getting to watch the Aims Project all in order on the big screen, watching I Swear in a big group - the reactions of the people who know what's coming and the people who don't are equally priceless, and being happily encased in a bubble of vid squee for a whole weekend.

The vid show that I put together was Same Song, Different Source. I wasn't sure how this was going to play out - would people find it repetitive? Did it invite people to put the vids in competition? But it seemed to go down well, and interestingly multiple people said that it enhanced the way that they read and understood vids, particularly the second vids in the pairs. So that was really cool.

I'm delighted that all of us in the concom are keen to keep running this every year now, and also figure out how to expand it a little so that we can afford to sustain and grow what we can do. Vids! Con! Whee! \o/

things for me!

It was my birthday on Wednesday! Thank you everyone who left well wishes for me on various corners of the internet. <3

[personal profile] purplefringe made me the most epic Captain America vid of all time. It's to Don't Stop Believin', it's Steve/Sam, it's all my hopes and dreams in fanvid form. :D :D :D :D

And [personal profile] raven wrote me a wonderful DS9 Kira/Dax story, Signal Fire, which is beautiful and gave me many feelings.

Also [personal profile] happydork has taken up knitting and is filling our home with joy. There's a TARDIS all for me and a Jaegar so far.

tattoo show and tell!

Going through one of my phases of gleefully looking through tattoo blogs and admiring lots of people's awesome ink. I know many of you have some great tattoos, so share in the comments if you'd like! Pictures or descriptions, background about why you got them if you like, or just link to your favourite tattoo work elsewhere.

hey, dreamwidth!
default [trufflehog]

So I've been reading away on Dreamwidth as ever but apparently haven't updated in nearly a month? Let's fix that, as our work email server has just crashed (ahaha our IT is so bad, oh, charity sector life).

i. I have been at the new job for three months now! I really like it, but it's definitely taking away a lot more time and energy from doing fannish stuff than the last one, which is annoying. I have all these feels and no time to put them anywhere!

ii. What fannish time I do have at the moment is mostly spent getting ready for Vidukon! I'm excited, we've got some great stuff lined up this year. It's great we're managing to make it an annual thing and I hope it continues. Viiiids. All being well, I should have two premiering vids there and also possibly a shiny new remaster of one of my old cam vids, which would be lovely. (psst it's not too late to get an attending or supporting membership -- which includes nifty streaming options!)

iii. Vidding projects are going well (though as ever I have more things I want to make than time to make them) but writing continues to ... not. Looking back, I've not managed to post much in the last couple of years. And actually, pretty much what it seems to be is that I haven't been able to write much since the end of Ponds-era Doctor Who. Many many WIPs stashed away in various fandoms, very little ability to finish any of them. Not to mention the 50k Ponds fic of doom that has been rigorously beta'd and really just needs a final go through but I'm worried it's not very good and that no one will really care when I post it anyway.

... WRITING IS HARD. How do words. I would love to be able to actually write any of the dozen MCU fic ideas I have buzzing around, but I can't manage more than about 500 words on anything.

iv. Fannish pursuits of the moment - saw Cap 2 again, still love it with all my heart like they made it just for meeeee. <3 Also in that category, I've caught the first season of Orphan Black, though I haven't started s2 yet. IT IS PERFECT AND BEAUTIFUL.

Also perfect and beautiful: Brooklyn Nine-Nine! [personal profile] happydork and I are making our way through the season and it's so totally delightful. I horribly overidentify with Santiago ('yes sir, I will make better mouth') and Captain Holt is honestly one of the most glorious queer characters I've had the pleasure of watching in ages. *draws sparkly hearts*

v. Anyone on HabitRPG? Having tried it for a little while now it seems to be working quite well for me, and it would be fun to have some buddies on there to do quests with etc. My username is syntaxed.
