Hi! This is a catchall post if you'd like to drop me a line - feel free also to send me a PM or email me at such.heights at gmail dot com.

Useful info:

Fanworks masterlist | my AO3 account | my vids at my website

Note: mediafire killed all my links a while back - if you're looking to download something and it's not on my website, please let me know.

Blanket permission (podfic, art, remix, etc):

My policy on permissions for use of my work is that you don't in fact need my permission to make art, record podfic, remix, critique, translate, save, share or otherwise reuse and interact with anything I've done. I'd love it if you'd share a link with me when you're done, however!


Every fanwork I post will have a 'content notes' field. Elements that I will signpost should I make something involving them include graphic violence, sexual violence, major character death, and anything under the umbrella of mental illness and PTSD. I will also note when my vids contain particularly rapid cutting, bright flashes or sudden changes in volume. If you would like any further information about anything I've posted, feel free to get in touch.

I include image descriptions in the alt text of pictures that I post, and subtitle tracks for my vids, though in both cases that only goes back so far - if there's a particular vid you'd like a subtitle track for that doesn't currently have one, please ask and I'll be happy to put one together.
such_heights: still from the blank space music video - tswift pulls an outraged face (people: taylor [how dare])
Taylor Swift makes amazing life choices sometimes. The accompanying music video to her new single, Bad Blood, is the most glorious thing. She clearly decided that what she wanted to do was recruit all her favourite lady models, actors and musicians and have them all play high femme leather-clad assassins with a bunch of cool tech in a post-apocalyptic landscape where the only man left alive, apparently, is Kendrick Lamar.

This has a good breakdown of the cast of the video. Pretty sure it's the only time you're going to see Cindy Crawford, Jessica Alba, Hailee Steinfeld, Ellie Goulding and Ellen Pompeo in the same place.

What a world. I need this to be a major fandom for Yuletide.

Watch on youtube, or embed under the cut.

Also, fills are still being posted at the MCU kissing fest, from Steve/Bucky to Pepper/Vision.
such_heights: peggy carter in red, white and blue in a crowd of grey suits (mcu: peggy [crowd])
So in 2012 I ran a kissing comment fest and everyone seemed to have a good time. (And yes, lol, I did at that time believe I'd stop caring about superheroes by the end of the summer.) Let's try again!

Everything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe applies, so that's all 11 films as well as Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter and Daredevil. Assume that comments may contain spoilers for everything.


01. Leave a comment with two or more characters from the MCU who you'd like to see kiss. You can include a prompt if you like as an optional extra for the prompt-filler.
02. Reply to the comment with a fanwork in which those characters kiss. The kissing can be platonic or romantic, on the mouth or the cheek or the forehead or the shoulder or anywhere else that you like.
03. All fanworks welcome, including art/podfic/vids/icons/recs/meta/fic etc. Multiple fills for the same prompt are fine. Replying to your own prompt is fine. Anon commenting is fine. Coming back and posting a fill two months later is fine. Posting your fanwork elsewhere is fine.

I will link to fills in this post as they come in.

Okay, here we go! Who else is staying up to watch the UK general election? Exit polls look worrying and suggest another Conservative government is likely, but it's not over yet, and in the meantime I'm looking forward to hearing from Sheffield Hallam and South Thanet, and the fates of Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage especially.

Here's the BBC livetext feed.

Everyone's reactions to Age of Ultron are pretty much the epitome of 'mileage varies', not to mention that we all watch different things and take away different things. That's great, and I don't want to tell anyone that their opinions are wrong, but I do find myself in disagreement with many of them. See, I loved Natasha's arc in Age of Ultron, and here's why.

+ [personal profile] happydork and I successfully moved house and are settling in nicely to East London. It's simultaneously very strange to have left [personal profile] purplefringe, Awesome Housemate K and the cat behind (though to be fair I still see them lots), and very nice to be setting up our own place. Our decorating scheme is ALL THE COLOURS, and everything's very light and airy. Also now full of giant beanbags. Today we got bookshelves and finally unpacked our books, which instantly makes everything look better. Home is where my Harry Potter books are.

+ Having some time out from work is working out pretty well for the moment - I have been spending lots of time setting up the flat and installing things, and I'm feeling a lot better in pretty much every conceivable way compared to a month ago. But on Tuesday I'll be signing on and then it's job hunting a go go. I still don't really know what it is that I want to do, but there are a couple of job ads that look promising in the meantime.

+ I am slowly trying to get myself to remember how to string sentences together. I barely write any more; no fiction, no journal entries, and even my tweets are mostly retweets or replies to other people. So, hi, internet. I miss you. Let's chat more. <3

Hi gang,

I'm putting together a trans/genderqueer/nonbinary vidshow for Vidukon this year and would love to hear your suggestions for existing vids, and to see if anyone could be tempted to make a brand new vid for the occasion! The deadline is May 1st, and I'd love anything. A RPF vid about Laverne Cox and Janet Mock and their #girlslikeus work, an angry vid about how shitty Max's storyline in the L Word was, a multifandom vid about awesome genderqueer characters - anything and everything would be fab! Any length, any source - would be delighted by short vidlets as well as full-length vids.

If you have an idea, let me know at such.heights at gmail dot com, and I'd be delighted to chat it over with you.

In the meantime, please rec me stuff - self-recs encouraged. :D

So [tumblr.com profile] waldorph has discovered that their fic, along with a lot of others, are assigned reading on a Berkley undergrad syllabus, where part of the assignment includes leaving comments. It's ... not going well.

This is a cache of the syllabus in full (I don't think I spotted any of my rlist there?)

[tumblr.com profile] waldorph writes: So Your Fic is Required Reading: Hahahanope.

As many people have said, studying fandom is one thing, but setting your students loose on unsuspecting fic writers is kind of awful.

eta: as people have pointed out, it's important to note that this is a class run by undergrads who are themselves fans that doesn't has a great deal of supervision outside of that.


In entirely different 'wtf' news, I would like to write my own post about the experience that was Jupiter Ascending, but in the meantime [personal profile] happydork has written a pretty accurate summary of our evening.

I made three vids this year! Unsurprisingly, the one the most people guessed was that I made the vid about the indie lesbian film to the indie lesbian song. Who knows why! :D

Signed streaming and download links and now available at the below posts - will also put up on tumblr and whatnot when I get a chance.

such_heights: karen gillan looking pretty (who: karen [light])
I have been rolling around in wonderful vids for the past few days, it's amazing.

First of all, I must heartily recommend the vids (4! 4 vids! I am spoiled rotten!) made for me:

Let's Get Mischievous (LEGO Marvel Superheroes)
This is so charming and fun. It focuses on the villains from the game, masterminded by Dr Doom, and they are goofy and fabulous. It's beautifully timed to a perfect song choice - pretty sure that 'I'm feeling devious, you're looking glamorous, let's get mischievous, and polyamorous' is my new life motto. If you've always wanted to see Mystique and Dr Doom and Loki and Dr Octopus team up in glorious LEGO format, now's your chance!

Beth Yw'r Haf I Mi (Maleficent)
Oh, my heart. This is really beautiful. I love the range of vids there are for Maleficent this year, from big and bombastic to this quiet, intimate look at Maleficent and Aurora and the parallels between them. <3

The Writer (Not Another Happy Ending)
So Not Another Happy Ending is a Scottish indie film that Karen Gillan did a couple of years ago. It's a fun enough film, but it is a bit marred by two pretty annoying love interests that take up a lot of screentime and are very boring. But! By far the best bit of the film is that as Gillan's character struggles with writing her next novel, she suddenly finds that her heroine has come to life and starting following her around. This vid is about that bit and is amazing. It uses all the loveliness of the Edinburgh setting and Karen Gillan's face to tell a gorgeous slightly fairytale story.

I Could Be (Selfie)
This is a vid about John Cho and Karen Gillan having stupid dorky beautiful faces at each other and is therefore PERFECT. There are also pratfalls and dramatic hair flips and amazing outfits and occasional FEELINGS and I love it to pieces.

Other vids I've enjoyed so far (still have lots to watch!):

Gone Tech (Almost Human) Karl Urban has a hot robot boyfriend
I am what I am and Kinky Neighbours (Batman 1966) - having just rewatched The Dark Knight over the weekend, these two were the most wonderfully kinky, fabulous anecdote.
Dynamite (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) Team feels and comedy hijinx, the perfect B99 vid. :D
Hard Way Home (Cloudburst) This vid about an ageing lesbian couple is funny and sweet and delightful and I must check out the film ASAP.
Silent Fandoms (Festivids) A fascinating, meta look at how and why we vid and our relationships with small fandoms.
Through the Deep, Dark Wood (How to Get Away With Murder) an intense, awesome look at Wes and Annalise.
All I Want (Life of Pi) Beautiful film, beautiful vid.
Shake It Off (Maleficent) Not at all what I was expecting for the collection of vids for this film, and I love it. The editing is really fun with all the zooms and jump cuts, too.
Afterlife (The Middleman) I need to watch this show already, it is known. In the meantime, all aboard the adorable Wendy/Lacey train.
Infinite (The Perks of Being A Wallflower) I haven't seen the film and I loved this vid. It doesn't let up in flow or emotion for over 5 minutes which I find very impressive.
I'll be there for you (Pit Bulls and Parolees) PUPPIES. *ugly crying*
Moves Like Yaweh (Prince of Egypt) Come for the amazing pun in the title, stay for the dynamic cutting of one of my favourite childhood films.
Grow Old With Me (Six Feet Under) Gorgeous ship vid for David and Keith.

I made three vids for this year's round. I don't feel like it's much of a giveaway to say that they're all about people with good faces who love each other. There may be a prize if you can guess all three!

notes: made for [personal profile] shinyjenni for Festivids 2014 as a treat. Fun fact: I have watched this film at least three times in the last six months because Housemate K is obsessed with this film. She is also obsessed with this song. So while this truly was a vid that I made for Jenni because I love her and wanted her to have a vid of OT3 joy, it is also for Housemate K, for getting me into their love in the first place.

Many thanks to [personal profile] silly_cleo and [personal profile] charloween for the beta! Originally posted here.

So I was really struggling with my Yuletide story this year, and I turned to my nearest and dearest for help. They pretty much ended up writing most of this, which is a bit embarrassing for me but all in the name of fulfilling the assignment.

So with many thanks to Awesome Housemate K and [personal profile] purplefringe for all their contributions, [personal profile] happydork and I are proud to present some ridiculous How to Get Away With Murder genfic with drunken shenanigans.
