children of dune - leto 1

still didnt' do homework, but recs!

Two things. Less than pleasant first.

Seriously, I Need to Say This?

There is a time and place for fic critique. Unless you have never been here before, I think it's pretty self-evident it goes on in here.

But there's this thing I like to call time and place.

Please don't, when I am doing a quick squee-rec, like, say, oh, tonight, come in and post anonymously a sly poke at a different story in comparison to the one recced. One, it's kind of tacky. Two, that's not something a given author needs to see randomly pop up if they're reading my lj.

And yes, I know what fic was referred to. And I seriously in all ways don't agree. That entry was not the place or the time.

(This is absolutely not in reference to last week, btw.)

YouTube Vids Recs

If you watch enough youtube vids? You really *do* find what you were looking for.

Fandom: X-Men

So Much Better by LadyofTear, St.John/Bobby. I--really love this. Their love is so torn by destiny. And it gets extra points for not starting in that mall scene from X2. Happy.

Fandom: Star Trek Voyager

Holding Out for a Hero by Sazzy1972, Janeway/Seven. Whetehr or not you have seen Voyager, like or hate the pairing, or have issues with gorgeous blonde Borg--watch this. I pasted this to svmadelyn after the first minute. You'll see why. This? This is *awesome*.

It runs a little long for me personally, but it's a riot.

Summer Nights from Grease by Sazzy 1972, Janeway/Seven. Oh my God. Same as above. This is so awesome. And seriously, Janeway as Danny works on a variety of levels. A variety.

ETA: Someone have any good Logan/Scott? I really want Logan/Scott for some reason.

grrr and also, huh

Okay, so it's true. VividCon has totally spoiled me.

I can't watch vids where the colors dont match (I NEVER KNEW THERE WAS COLOR MATCHING, OH MY GOD) or where the cuts are sloppy (HOW DID I LEARN TO IDENTIFY THIS?) or where the cuts are very, very, very, very indecently long without being terribly meaningful and I just spent three minutes mentally decontructing one and thinking, they really should have matched up their source more. FIX YOUR ASPECT RATIO DAMMIT (WHEN DID I FIGURE OUT WHAT THAT WAS ANYWAY?)

....I have no idea what this means.

I blame fan_eunice and vagabondage for last year when they totally started explaining the entire Process of Vidding (which really is a lot like having a moment of Enlightenment) because oh my God, I am griping about how the music does not match the mood.

This is so sad. And also seriously, where is the Logan/Scott? I don't ask much, do I? Their love includes a long on-screen canonical hug.
