New and Updated Fanfic

21
Sep 2015

After binge-watching all three Mighty Ducks movies at work (I know, right?  My job is awesome), I suddenly got all inspired about being in fandom again.  So I did this (all links are local, no ff.net or AO3 links):

Updated:

A Christmas Carol: [The Mighty Ducks] Charlie Conway is 27, and his life is not going right. Can he be saved in time? This is neither slash, nor any form of love story, neither will it become one.

This story is finally finished.  It took me twelve years.  No joke.  I went to ff.net to check.


New:

Nina’s Home for Christmas: [Making Out – K Applegate] Zoey is a mother now, and it’s baby Wade’s first Christmas, and she has insisted that everybody come visit, but Zoey and Jake are having problems, and Lucas hasn’t quite got over the love of his life, and it’ll all come to a head because…
… Nina’s Home for Christmas

Admittedly, this should have gone up long ago.  It was a Yuletide 2014 gift for finkpishnets.


The Five Stages of Friendship: [The Mighty Ducks] The five stages of friendship between a Duck and a Warrior are: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance. Only angrier.

Something that sat, in very brief outline form, in my “to do” folder for quite awhile, and after watching the movies, I just surged through.


After that, I went through all of the old skins on the archive and started cleaning them up.  Once I’ve done that, I’m going to pick my favourite and skin this blog to match.

Well, underpants and garden gnomes.  I’ve somehow managed to balls up the update on my archive.

I will update when it is functional once more.

Thoughts on Halloween (2007)

Oooh, quote. That’s deep, maaaaan.
Good song. I guess with Rob Zombie at the helm, that much is guaranteed.

Uh, so the Myers are not a middle-class family then?
“Skull-fuck the shit out of you”?
Thank Christ these people are about to be murdered.
Can you flush a rat? Really?

I know we’re supposed to cheer on the serial killer in a “fun” way, but seriously, I can’t wait for him to start killing.
It will be for the greater good.

LINDERMAN.
With cool hair.
Speaking of hair, Michael has better hair than me. *le sigh tragique*
it gets better…

Vid: [The Mighty Boosh] Holding Out for a Hero – REMASTERED

28
Oct 2007

Vid Title: Holding Out For a Hero

Artist: Bonnie Tyler

Fandom: The Mighty Boosh

Summary: Vince/Howard, even though I started it as a general vid rather than a shippy one. The first verse is Howard’s point of view, second is Vince’s.

Rated: U, same as the show

File Size: 16.6 MB

Feedback: Oh, by the way, feedback does not suck, so… yeah. Leave some bitches. Uh… nice bitches. (Here’s where I offend people before they get the reference).

Notes: Same vid as before, only with better quality, larger source, and a few stray frames have been removed. Two new teeny-tiny clips that are more interesting than the ones that were originally there. Preeeeety souce! Enjoy.

[Boosh] Holding Out for a Hero - Remastered (16.60MB) (1897)

The YouTube link has been removed because I got a note from YouTube saying they’d had a C&D from BabyCow productions. *le sigh*

You can still download the old version here:

Vid: [The Mighty Ducks] November Rain – REMASTERED

8
Jul 2007

This vid has been remastered, using higher quality clips and editing the bits that I was never particularly happy with. Things have changed a little, and it is now one vid instead of two. See below for download details.

Vid Title: November Rain

Artist: Guns N’ Roses

Fandom: The Mighty Ducks

Clips from: D1, D2, D3 and Don’t Cry and November Rain by Guns N’ Roses

Summary: This is an AU vid, in which Casey and Bombay were married and Charlie is their son. This vid (or vids) deals with their break-up and Bombay’s self-destruction that follows it, not to mention Charlie’s reaction. See the Notes for more details.

File Size: See below (by the download links)

Format: Real and Windows Media

Notes: I can’t exactly remember what my thought process was, but I eventually challenged myself to make a video based on Without You by Del James (bear with me on this), using only footage from The Mighty Ducks, and the Without You music videos by Guns N’ Roses (for the non-rabid GN’R fans, that’s Don’t Cry, November Rain and Estranged).

The story of Without You is ultimately about the self-destruction of a man who appears to have everything, but still manages to screw it up. Theoretically Gordon could be that man, he’s rich, he’s well educated, he’s loved, and he could screw it up easily and lose everything. This vid tried to explore that. I have had to use footage from Don’t Cry and November Rain by Guns N’ Roses because, obviously, Casey and Gordon never got married in the Ducks fandom (but did in my mind, I love that pairing), and so forth. Any questions, hop over to the forums and ask there. I’ll answer in great detail, I assure you.

If the vid didn’t make sense, try reading the commentary.

Feedback: Always welcome. If you liked it, tell me. If it didn’t make sense, let me know, your opinion will not break me. I have never actually had any feedback on this vid, despite there being over 300 downloads. Was it really that bad?

New Version:
YouTube link removed, thanks to a scary Cease & Desist from BabyCow about my Boosh vids.
[Ducks] November Rain - Remastered - Real (49.7MB) (1894)
[Ducks] November Rain - Remastered - Win (14.1MB) (1883)

Old Version:
Vidding Commentary
[Ducks] November Rain: Part I (8.13MB) (2171)
[Ducks] November Rain: Part II (12.9MB) (2117)

Vid: [The Lost Boys] Save Yourself

8
Feb 2007

Vid Title: Save Yourself

Artist: Stabbing Westward

Fandom: The Lost Boys

Summary: Michael and Star. Not exactly a love story.

Rated: 15, same as the movie

File Size: 18.1 MB in Real, or 9.8 MB in Windows Media Player

Format: Real and Windows, but please don’t upload this video elsewhere. It’s such bad manners.

[Lost Boys] Save Yourself - Real (18.1 MB) (1334)
[Lost Boys] Save Yourself - Win (9.8 MB) (1380)

Music Videos

20
Nov 2006

If you’ve dropped by to have a look at the music vids here, I’d have to suggest that you watch In The Hall of the Mountain King (Needful Things), Holding Out for a Hero, and Pump Up The Volume as your first few downloads. They’re my most recent, and also the best I’ve done. I’ve gotten better at vidding over time, so the further back you go, the more amaturish the vids are. That said, Bad Reputation is much better than Every Day I Love You Less and Less.

Something that baffles me is why November Rain Part 1 has 65 downloads, but Part 2 only has 29. Do people only watch the first half and not care about the second half? I really should have edited the song better, so it was all one video. I think maybe that can be my next project.

Vid Commentary: November Rain

27
Oct 2006

Commentary on “November Rain

Well, I did one commentary, and enjoyed it so much (ego-masturbation really puts a smile on your face) that I thought I’d try to explain November Rain. Also, given that the vid is nearly a year old, I’m also probably going to say what I should have done to make it more successful. This is because at some point, I will probably remaster the vid in higher quality clips, and tweak a few things that bothered me.

November Rain is probably an idea that backfired on me. Axl Rose decides to turn Del James’ short story Without You into a music video and spends the next ten years explaining himself. Sarah, thestalkycop, decides to do exactly the same and wonders why she has to explain herself. What’s the definition of insanity, again? Something about endlessly repeating the same task, but hoping for different results?

Vid Commentary: Needful Things

15
Oct 2006

Commentary on “In The Hall of the Mountain King” (Needful Things vid)

I know you probably have to be a big name vidder, like here’s luck to really necessitate a commentary, but I was pretty pleased with the Needful Things vid, so I thought maybe a commentary might be in order, especially since I get a fair amount of emails about vidding – very few about my vids, but plenty asking for technical help. This sort of implies that my vids don’t really speak to anyone on an emotional level, but every so often someone will think “Wow, that was cool, wonder how she did that”, which is still odd, since I rarely use special effects (Pump Up The Volume aside).

So, on to the commentary. Continue reading »
