A Vindication of the Rights of Women by damned_colonial (Age of Sail multi)
So awesome! Dozens of ladies kicking ass and taking names, whee!
Around the Bend by danegen (multifandom)
Women being awesome in cars and on bikes and in planes! Squee! I love the incredibly variety of source danegen found for this, and the diversity of women and how much joy is packed into this vid.
I Can't Hear The Music by settiai (Deep Space Nine, Kai Winn)
A Kai Winn vid omg! I was so excited to see this - it's a great and intelligent look at a fascinating character.
I Just Can't Wait To Be King by some_stars (Star Trek Reboot)
In which Kirk in Simba. This was so much fun to watch in a crowd! avendya were cracking up completely, because omg the clip choices are priceless.
If I Had You by dualbunny (Legend of the Seeker, Richard/Rahl)
I was watching this in the CVV overflow room with mresundance and spent a while going 'did she ...? oh man she totally did!' Awesome. :D
Lend Me Your Teeth by greensilver (Doctor Who, weeping angels)
This played in the Unusual POV show and totally freaked me out. That's a compliment!
Livin' La Vida Loca by rhoboat (Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes)
This is such a great song choice and I really loved all the parallels and use of split screens. So much fun!
Make Something Good by sweetestdrain (Merlin; Gwen/Arthur/Merlin)
GWEN! Oh my goodness, there can never be too many Gwen-centric vids and this one is so beautiful and sweet and has wonderful narrative flow. I didn't get to see this at the con, but both thingswithwings and isagel told me afterwards that they thought I'd really like it, and lo, I did.
Stay Awake by laurashapiro (multifandom)
Heed the warnings - this is a vid that deals with forced pregnancies and medical experimentation that is incredibly creepy. What for me made this really effective is the way that it uses source that I already found disturbing, like Teyla, and mixes it with footage that was played for comedic effect and now takes on whole new meaning.
Take On Me by greensilver (Doctor Who)
ALL the Doctors, omg. This makes me SO HAPPY I cannot even put it into words, it is just pure distilled delight. Oh fandom my fandom!
Watershed by astolat (Merlin; Morgana)
There can never be too many Vienna Teng vids! This a gorgeous look at Morgana with great musicality, and I think I now have a trifecta of Morgana S2 vids that deal with similar themes in interesting ways along with kaydeefalls' The Tower and avendya's Blood Makes Noise.
