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.

Yesterday the new Doctor Who companion was announced and everything looks delightful.

For this year's Vidukon I'm putting together a show of vids that were made/premiered in 2006. I'm going through Vividcon from that year and people's journal archives, and it's a very fun nostalgia fest. Harry Potter was an ongoing series, it was the early days of SGA, BSG, SPN and all other three letter acronym shows, people were vidding a lot of Farscape and due South and Whedonverse, and Doctor Who was just beginning to pick up interest.

I'd love recs of any personal faves from that year. Must have been originally posted that year, so no remasters etc, but otherwise anything goes. Self recs very much encouraged! I know it might feel a bit weird to look at work a decade old, but I'm really interested to see how much vidding has changed in style and content over the years, and how much it hasn't.

Festivids reveals are up! Thank you SO much to [personal profile] purplefringe for Gonna Get Through This World (An Adventure in Space and Time) and [personal profile] heresluck for Independent Women (Hamilton).

I made two vids this year! Less than I'd originally been planning, but I did end up making two other vids during the festivids period, so what can you do.

Comedy Tragedy History (Hamilton, for [profile] gwenfrankstein)
I'd been working on a Hamilton vid since before assignments went out, intending to use it as a treat, but happy days, I got assigned to [profile] gwenfrankenstein who wanted a Hamilton vid! I ended up ditching my first project and switching it out for the amazing Akala song, 'Comedy Tragedy History'. Genius has a good breakdown of the lyrics.

I worked so hard on this vid! I found it challenging in a great way - I had to cut a lot faster than I do usually, work with a bunch of different kinds of source, and work with really brilliant, intricate, quick lyrics. I think I just about did the idea justice, and I'm so proud of the end result, I think I levelled up a little as a vidder through making it.

You're My Best Friend (RPF - Ian McKellen/Patrick Stewart, for [personal profile] purplefringe)
For once, I thought I was getting one up on [personal profile] purplefringe! She's made me treats the last couple of years, but this year I would surprise her and get one up! ... so obviously this is the year I was her assignment, ha. Still, this was a delight to make, a goofy vid about best friends for my best friend. I'm glad other people enjoyed it too.

It was fun to work with non-standard source for both vids this year, with lots of scouring youtube and working with photos. Thank you, everyone who left kind comments during the anon period, they mean a lot! <3

[personal profile] purplefringe made a vid about the Doctor Who Christmas specials, not quite in time for Christmas but in time for a burst of mid-January light. It gives me all the feelings in the whole world.

Halfway Out Of The Dark
Don't forget, I love, I love, I love you

It's like being wrapped up in a warm blanket for a few minutes, and I know I really needed that today.

Some icons for my current obsession, the Broadway musical Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Hamilton is a hip-hop musical about the USA founding father Alexander Hamilton starring an almost entirely non-white cast that is incredibly smart, funny, sincere and emotionally affecting. As [personal profile] happydork can attest, I've been listening to it non-stop for a week. It's available on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Prime and iTunes, probably others also. This is a short video of some of the performance, which is also helpful for matching faces to voices.

Here are so quote icons, some icons using the artwork from the lyrics booklet, some from production stills from a range of sources.

And while I'm here, I laughed really a lot at this modern AU Hamilton fic (yes, that concept breaks my brain a bit too):
