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):

All around the country, scores of people are packing things and making plans to come and celebrate with [personal profile] happydork and me as we get married. My phone's been chirping away all day today with good wishes, and tomorrow I am going to get to see so many people I love at the same time.

It's a little overwhelming in the most amazing way. I feel a little bit like I might burst from it all, and we haven't even started yet. But I have a TARDIS blue dress hanging in a wardrobe in the flat my parents have booked for the weekend, and in the morning [personal profile] purplefringe and my other bridesmaids will be here and everything's going to be wonderful.

dw squee!

Wow, I have barely updated since I started my new job. Turns out it's quite hard to get back into the swing of 9-5 after being out of work for two months, who knew.

I have managed to watch some of the great vids being posted recently though, so here have some recs.

MCU:
Zero by [personal profile] sweetestdrain (Natasha)
This is a brilliant look at Natasha over all the films so far, covering her central role in the story and how she's the one who assembled the Avengers.

1941 by [personal profile] rhoboat (Peggy)
Great song choice, great editing, great series overview. Peggy! \o/

I Lived by [personal profile] flummery (Steve/Peggy)
*ugly crying* their love is so tragic. sob. But really this is actually wonderfully optimistic in tone, because both of them are living the heck out of their lives even though they're apart. The bittersweet tinge is a punch in the gut though.

Korra, Sense8, Doctor Who, Mad Max: Fury Road

Landsailor by [personal profile] skygiants (Legend of Korra, Jinora)
A really beautiful overview of Jinora's arc and all the themes therein.

Breathe Me by [personal profile] butterfly (Sense8, ensemble)
Ahhhh my heart. I love this cluster so muuch, beloved darlings.

Survivor by [personal profile] odessie (Doctor Who, multi era)
This is the BEST. It is what my heart is made of. Companions having wonderful post-Doctor lives and being friends and being amazing. It's beautifully structured, every time a new character was introduced I shrieked a little bit.

Na Na Na by [personal profile] violace (Mad Max: Fury Road)
THIS IS SO AWESOME. Inspired song choice and a fantastic whirlwind ride through this film. I have watched it many times and I love it.

---

Today we got sent the draft script for our ceremony from the registrar, and it's my hen night this weekend, and our flat is covered in RSVP cards and robots and the constituent parts of centrepieces, all of which leads me to conclude that time has gone past inordinately quickly and I am in fact marrying [personal profile] happydork in two and a bit weeks.

Which is tremendously exciting, and also a little bit surreal. But then I sneak a peek at our wedding rings, or remember awesome little things we have planned for the day, and actually it's all totally great.

Also, this is late notice, but we haven't actually started putting together the decorations yet, and if you would like to contribute, you can decorate one of these awesome robots and send it to us, digitally or physically. If we have it on Friday 11th it'll go up in the hall, and if we have it this weekend it might also be included in something else we're planning. <3
