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!

Accessibility:

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.

Things are going really well with my current therapist. I'm making some real progress in understanding how I operate and why I struggle with certain things the way I do.

Peeling through layers of mental debris is raising lots of questions, and one I keep thinking about is who I really am, who could I be without quite so much baggage from mental illness and general sadness?

I'm not sure. I'm still figuring it out. But one thing has struck me, something that has frankly shaken my sense of self to its very core! (I kid. Sort of.) All this time, I thought I knew something about myself, but I think I was dead wrong.

I think I might be an extrovert.

Well, I did a thing. Totally old school now but nonetheless - [community profile] thecluster now exists for discussion and posting fanworks to and so on!

Also I made some icons. Spoilers for the whole show.

TRAGICALLY I do not know when we can watch more it might not be until next week because some loser has to go have a birthday on Thursday and then go away to Vidukon, ugh.

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.

THE RULES:

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.

So it turns out political despair is what will finally get me writing again? I've got nothing.

The Devolution of Muggle-Magical Relations
Harry Potter/UK Politics RPF ; Hermione Granger, Nicola Sturgeon ; G, gen, 800 words ; also at the AO3

An unofficial sequel to [personal profile] raven's a historic and seismic shift.

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.

eta: tumblr is bringing the lulz in this time of strife, reblogging the good stuff.

eta2: welp, it's 3am, the Lib Dems are being annihilated, Labour are underperforming, meanwhile Scotland have collectively decided 'fuck this shit' and are doing the electoral equivalent of sawing through the boundary and setting out to sea, not that I blame them. *starts drinking*

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.

such_heights: bookshelves (stock: books)
+ [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

RIP, Leonard Nimoy. Thank you, so much, for everything. <3

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.

Festivids reveals are live! Thank you SO much to [personal profile] bananainpyjamas, [personal profile] cosmic_llin, [personal profile] vesperregina and that sneaky bastard [personal profile] purplefringe for my wonderful vids. <33333

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.

The Hardest of Hearts (Maleficent) for [personal profile] anoel
She Keeps Me Warm (Saving Face) for [personal profile] sanguinity
Get Lucky (Singin' in the Rain) for [personal profile] shinyjenni
