I happened to stop on my profile the other day and I realized I missed my 5th year anniversary on LJ. I suppose I should do some meme or other in celebration, but realistically I don't have time to make icons and I haven't been able to write anything for months. So let's not and say I did.

I realize I have been a bit absent, partly due to the time thing and the inability to write thing, but mostly because I have been feeling a bit disconnected from fandom. (Though I am, as always, overwhelmed and appreciative that people like my fanart. Really, people comment, and not just to tell me how awful it is! I am always amazed when that happens.)

But there have been a few vids that have made me happy lately that I thought I should share:

Five Years Time by [ profile] gigglemonster (Parks and Rec)
This vid is love. Sorry for the old meme, but that is my legit reaction to this. I love the song choice and the effervescence that fills it. I dare you to watch it and not smile.

When the Ship Comes In by [personal profile] chaila (The Wire)
I did not expect the song choice but it works so freaking well to demonstrate the wonderfully tragic relationship of Stringer and Avon. My initial thought was to just tell all of you to watch it and write me lots of fic, but due to spoilers: Go watch The Wire, then watch this vid, then write me lots of fic. And seriously, it will be worth your time to complete all those steps.

Welcome Home by [ profile] barkley (Friday Night Lights)
I miss this show already. This vid doesn't mitigate that (which would be more than a bit impossibly) but it does distill how great the show was.

It's the End of the World as We Know It by [personal profile] danegen (Community)
Even a wildly overused song, when applied correctly, can result in an awesome vid. Such is the case here.

You Told the Drunks I Knew Karate by [personal profile] settiai (Doctor Who [New])
PONDS! Ponds being precious and heroic and so perfect for each other.

And in case you were wondering, that vid rec also stands as my reaction to the latest ep.

Here are the (very belated) results of the meme from my last entry where I asked people to posit scenarios with an unknown group of characters. I can now reveal the list:

1. Stringer Bell (the Wire)
2. Veronica Mars
3. Castiel (SPN)
4. Zoe (Firefly)
5. The Old Spice Man
6. Peggy (Mad Men)
7. Olive (Pushing Daisies)
8. Mark Zuckerburg (The Social Network)
9. Emerson (Pushing Daisies)
10. Troy (Community)
11. Katniss (Hunger Games)
12. Gus (Psych)
13. Brad Colbert (Generation Kill)
14. Leslie Knope (Parks and Recreation)
15. Omar Little (The Wire)

and the answers )

I also did the Ao3 hitcount meme:

1. Meta Yuletide Fic - OSM (5126 hits)
2. Honey Pie - Telephone/Psuhing Daisies (761 hits)
3. Bordellos, Brothels and Berries, Oh My! - Pushing Daisies (447 hits)
4. It's Just the Way the Game is Played - The Wire (444 hits)
5. Just Moments - Mad Men (438 hits)
6. Those That Be Not What They Seem - Leverage/Othello (394 hits)
7. All My Wires Without Traces - Submachine (388 hits)
8. Today's Just a Day Like the Day that He Started - The Wire (280 hits)
9. Fine Dining in Baltimore - The Wire (247 hits)
10. The Rules of Roles - Entourage (235 hits)

and now a bit of discussion about the results (including graphs!) )
kristin: (goodwife: kalinda)
So, yes, I wrote a bunch of fics for Purim Gifts in a bunch of different fandoms. (Specific, aren't I?)

fics for firefly, hunger games, doctor who, community, psych, southland and psych/southland under the cut )

Also! I have seen this meme floating and it is never not fun. (Except when people don't comment, so please do!)
1. Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2. Ask your flist to post questions in the comments. For example: 'One, nine and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?', 'Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?', 'Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?'

3. After your flist has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.
