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.

I am super into [personal profile] thuviaptarth's latest vid right now.

Summary: Engineering is a process of iterative development.

This is a really stylish, cool vid, with a great song choice and some fantastic editing, which is all the icing on a delicious cake of feels. It's about how Tony works and improves and tries and fails and tries again, both with the suits and with people - his relationships with Rhodey and Pepper are beautifully foregrounded, which delights me.

Like half my reading list, I too feel enthusiastic about trying to post some more things in December. I didn't get to many of last year's prompts so I may well mine them again because there were some great ideas there, but if anyone's got anything they'd like to see then please do.

Also also, from the makers of the Aims Vidding Project comes ... the 1989 Vidding Project because of our collective Taylor Swift situation. [personal profile] silly_cleo is still looking for vidders if you'd like to get involved.

Last week, Awesome Housemate K picked out a lovely cat from the local rescue shelter. He's about seven years old and is one of the most chilled out cats I've ever met - very happy to be petted, enjoys padding around and sniffing things and snoozing in sunbeams. We're all madly in love with him. *_*

I've been rubbish at keeping up this season - I'm always busy on Saturday nights when it's on and have been failing at catching up during the week. But finales are important, even if now I have to wait a torturous week for the confusion.

Hello! I am so pleased that you are going to write a story for me. If you have an idea and want to go off and do it then that's wonderful, please go right ahead. If you'd like some more details, please read on.

Gen is great, shipfic is great. I'm very happy with any rating and any kind of romantic/sexual/kink content, whatever you most like to write. My two general requests would be a happy ending, and nothing where any of the characters are too drunk to know what they're doing.

I enjoy fluffy slices of life in which nothing at all happens, romantic comedies, coming of age stories, adventures, humour, wacky AUs and fusions, character studies, identity stories, and fannish tropes. (Some of my favourites of the latter include bodyswap, space!AUs, time travel and time loops.)

If you are interested in writing about characters who are asexual or who are trans or genderqueer, I am interested in reading about them!

Dear Festividder,

Omg I'm so excited. I hope you are too! Optional details are totally optional, please do whatever is going to make this exchange the most fun for you, I'm sure I'll love the end result. I realise most of my requests are just me yelling about my feelings, so really I am super easy to please. :D

If you find some detail helpful, read on! I'm actually just going to c/p from my letter last year because my tastes haven't exactly changed.

Some kinds of vids that I like include: vids that explore the world of the source, swishy dancey action vids, emotional character-driven vids, vids about awesome women whether focused on one individual or a group of them, vids about people who love each other, vids exploring big thematic ideas and imagery, vids about comedy hijinx.

All of the sources I've requested are very dear to my heart in different ways, and seeing one of them come to life in your vid is going to be awesome, I'm so excited. Musically, I haven't met a genre you can't make an awesome vid out of.

Some other bits and pieces that I like - parallels, characters growing into their own awesomeness, hugs, montages, pretty fight sequences, pretty dance sequences, big emotions, sentimentality, meta analysis.

Well, two years after I started this thing, think I'm finally ready to post it. Here goes!

The Aetherion

After the Doctor is kidnapped, Amy, Rory and River embark on a long journey to find the only thing that can save him - a mysterious artefact called the Aetherion.

Content notes: deals with depression and recovery from trauma.

Many thanks to [personal profile] purplefringe for a heroic amount of handholding, and to [personal profile] pocketmouse for the beta.

So there's an interesting post on tumblr from [tumblr.com profile] taiey pointing out just how many of Clara's episodes feature her home/work life as well as her adventures with the Doctor - she tallies it as 75% up to last week's episode. That seems pretty high! And then I was curious what it looked like for other companions, as well as the time periods spent travelling full time in the TARDIS versus coming along for visits etc.

Note - I don't think that this is a way of working out how feminist or well-rounded a companion's arc is, but given that I have genuinely seen people say that Clara's life revolves around the Doctor (she is the only regular New Who companion to travel in the TARDIS part time throughout her run! why would you say that?! jeez, fandom) it seemed interesting to bear in mind.

in chronological order )

I feel like a lot of the lazier Doctor Who reviews out there like to ignore the actual information we have on screen in favour of comments like 'all Martha ever did was pine after the Doctor' or 'Clara has no personality and we don't know anything about her life'. I'm really bored of that crap. You can take issue with their storylines without ragging on the women themselves, it's not hard.

Got tagged for a meme where you post three happy things a day for five days. Let's do it!

+ Ah, Sunday. Laundry on, drinking coffee, deciding whether I want to vid or play some Mass Effect. Later I will watch Doctor Who. :D

+ We have finally got around to watching Sleepy Hollow as a household. It's so delightful, as you all said ages back. We will be watching the finale tonight, I am very excited. It is so refreshing to watch a show, especially a show in this particular genre and based on this particular story, in which they have their one token white dude and then the rest of the world of the show is absolutely stuffed full with women and people of colour and people with disabilities and sometimes people who are all of the above (Macey's the best), and it does my heart good. I love all of the dynamics between Ichabod and Abbie and Jenny and Frank, and Ichabod vs. the 21st century is my favourite thing.

+ Off on holiday in two weeks, yayyy! [personal profile] happydork and I are going to go and lie on a beach in Spain for a week and do as little as humanly possible, it's going to be amazing.

What I would like to do while I'm there is do lots of reading! I just read and adored Ancillary Justice and have suddenly remembered that I like reading things that aren't fanfic sometimes. I would love some book recs! Looking for recent-ish stuff that is some or all of the following:

- scifi/fantasy/speculative
- has interesting, prominent female characters
- generally set in a world with a diverse population rather than just all straight white people all the time
- anything with robots or f/f romance
- available as an ebook is a bonus
- dislikes: bleakness, dead queers, graphic violence, noncon, zombies
