Stolen from lovestories/[personal profile] echoes, because HOMG I hoard fanvids like a dragon hoards shiny things. IT IS RIDICULOUS.

Pick your five ten fifteen all-time favourite fanvids, the ones which made you laugh or cry or kicked you in the guts, that inspired you to offer the vidder internets and first born sons, and tell us why you loved them. Any fandom, any pairing, any genre - the only requirement is they stood out from the crowd. Also, links or it didn't happen.
Click for a disgusting amount of rambling! )

Feel free to spam the comments with your recs!

Well, then )
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS, MY LOVELIES?

Also, because I have been playing it with the divine [livejournal.com profile] darkangsty42, SHAG, MARRY, PUSH OFF A CLIFF! Give me three characters in the comments, and I'll do the same, AND THE FUN WILL NEVER EVER END.

How are you? ♥
sophieisgod: ([merlin] fuck your shit up)
Red Riding: 1974 )

In other news, despite still not having seen any of the actual show, I've been inhaling SGA podfic (the one with all the knitting! The one where they're a Jedi and a Sith!) AND IT IS GLORIOUS.

Meanwhile, a Merlin rec: The Ink Still Drying, by [livejournal.com profile] lasiterfics. CAMELOT OT4, YOU GUYS, it's so so lovely. It's heavy on the Merlin/Morgana (\o/) and nobody goes evil and everyone's so nobly in love with each other that it hurrrrts. OH SHOW.

And a Morgana vid (THERE CAN NEVER BE ENOUGH): [livejournal.com profile] danegen's Half Sick of Shadows, to PJ Harvey's "When Under Ether". PJ Harvey, it is perfection.

RIGHT, BACK TO [livejournal.com profile] reel_merlin. How are you? ♥

BSG 4.17: Someone to Watch Over Me )

Being Human was utterly fantastic; I'm so pleased with how the series turned out. JOHNNY CASH, oh my days (although I can no longer hear that song without whimpering over the GK finale, but whatever).

HEY LOOK VID RECS
+ First up, [livejournal.com profile] lovestories made a Merlin vid, and I've watched it at least eight times in the past day and a half. Full disclosure: I acted as a weirdly enthusiastic cheerleader, in that she said "Should I vid this song?" and I went "HOMG YES! PUT IN THE BIT WITH THE FOOT IN THE FACE!" Anyway, her summary:
This vid is an exercise in Taking Songs Literally, if anything. "White Houses" is a beautiful song about losing your virginity, but one day it came up on shuffle, and my brain went, 'Gee, this sounds SOMEWHAT FAMILIAR,' and the concept for this fanvid was born. It's about love, it's about magic (and its consequences), it's even a little bit about the downfall of Camelot
It's Arthur/Merlin and Arthur/Merlin/Morgana and the Camelot OT4 and Gwen/Lancelot and there's a gorgeous bit of Merlin/Will that broke my heart. GO SEE.

+ I REALLY LOVE MARTHA JONES, LIKE, A LOT. This vid by [livejournal.com profile] such_heights is kind of Ten/Martha, but mainly it's about how fabulous and strong and hopeful Martha is. It's completely gorgeous.

Aaaand [livejournal.com profile] syllic wrote a crazy Merlin fusion with THE BABYSITTERS CLUB. Truly, it is a thing of beauty.

Finally, Colin Morgan is adorable. Stretch Armstrong!

How are you? ♥
sophieisgod: ([merlin] light up light up)
Man, I should really be asleep, but whatever! THIS IS TOO IMPORTANT.

You guys, it's a really really amazing Gwen vid by [livejournal.com profile] obsessive24 (creator of that one really really amazing Arthur vid that broke my heart), and it's fucking beautiful. OHH LEGENDS, WHY SO ANGSTY?

It's to Natalie Merchant's Effigy, which, yeah. Basically it makes me go "Guineverrrrrre" in an anguished Arthurian manner.
sophieisgod: ([merlin] no one can know about this)
Don't think, just click.
(Umm, there are Dis/Connected clips, and all that that entails. Just a heads up)

sophieisgod: ([merlin] this is arthur's sacrifice face)
ONLY SPOILERY IN TERMS OF EPISODE TITLES! )

BRB MY HEAD IS EXPLODING FROM THE EPIC.

While we're about it, Merlin + Kings of Leon = JOY JOY JOY JOY. I think this can be my happy thing for Sunday:
sophieisgod: ([bob] change into your pt gear)
List 10 some Christmas wishes, they can be huge or tiny, something to be bought or made, anything. Post it to your LJ and then ask others to link theirs and if you see something on someone's list that you can take care of, do it.
Thankfully, I already have two front teeth )
LINK ME TO YOUR LISTS O' JOY, BITCHES. Ooh, while we're about it, I've already uploaded the Brideshead Revisited OST and Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. FUN, SEXY TIMES.

Also, I really have fucked my sleep schedule up beyond all repair. OH WELL THAT IS WHAT NAPS ARE FOR, RIGHT? I blame Ron Livingston and his video diaries.

ALSO ALSO, my Merlin DVD had better arrive today, because I am itching for the behiind-the-scenes COLIN AND BRADLEY MADNESS AND JOY, and I am being very good and not spoiling myself by listening to the audio rips, but I DON'T THINK I CAN HOLD OUT FOR ANOTHER FULL DAY. Also, [livejournal.com profile] shizuka_blooms wrote me Jethro-from-Doctor-Who/Bradley James, and it is possibly my favourite thing ever in my life.

How are you? ♥

Merlin 1.10: The Moment Of Truth )
Einstein and Eddington was absolutely gorgeous, by the way. David Tennant made me cry with his desire for truth and his angsty repressed Cambridge man love, and Andy Serkis was magnificently out of his tree, and MY ALL-TIME NUMBER ONE FOREVER GIRL CRUSH REBECCA HALL was beautiful with her lovely clear eyes and Quakerish ways. So, yeah. Catch it if you can, definitely.

Also, LET'S TALK ABOUT THE BSG PREVIEW, PLEASE.

Right, I should probably go to sleep now, but instead I am going to watch another episode of Band of Brothers because it has eaten my life, just like it does every other time I start watching it. Doc Roe, guys. And Luz and his eyelashes. RUINED, I AM.

How are you? ♥

Merlin 1.09: Excalibur )
NEXT WEEK: JOE DEMPSIE!
sophieisgod: ([merlin] love his face)
The question is, can anything ever live up to the joy of Guy/Marian/Pudsey?
Merlin! )
+ Man, Boyzone look old.
+ The kid who just one Junior Masterchef is as cute as a button. Also, I WANT SOME CRUMBLE.
+ Also, CHRIS HOY! I have missed his thighs in my life, yes I have.
+ While we're all waiting for Doctor Who (DAVID MORRISSEY PHNAR)... another adorable Merlin/Children in Need promo that I hadn't seen! Also... Cut for being slightly creepy? )
+ Strictly Come Dancing! Tess was lovely, but my favourite thing was seeing Ian Waite and Lisa Snowdon in the audience. I DON'T KNOW WHY I LOVE HIM SO MUCH. Ooh, now there's more of them. PASO! Ohh, Brian Fortuna, why so fabulous? Also, I am weirdly attracted to James Jordan. I FEAR FOR MY SANITY.
Doctor Who! )

+ Gok Wan is the fiercest thing ever. Close second? GIRLS ALOUD.
+ Ashes to Ashes! With Richard "GERBIL" Hammond! AND MY TV BOYFRIEND PHILIP GLENISTER! Much love here, but OMG BABY CHRIS' HIGHLIGHTS. THEY WILL NEVER NNOT AMUSE ME.
sophieisgod: ([film] beautiful lie)
My Holga is so awesomely lame, it makes me happy. These are the best of a bad bunch, and basicallly represent me going "Coloured flash? AWESOME! Multiple exposures? AWESOME! TRA LA LA LA LA"

Marine Way Bridge, Southport
Southport, York, Oxford, Paris )


Also, thanks to everyone for the comments on my last post ♥

Also also, TWO POSTS IN A ROW WITHOUT MENTIONING MERLIN? WTF, SELF? Ahhh, that's better.
sophieisgod: ([merlin] a magical bromance)
Merlin 1.08: The Beginning of the End )

Who saw Bradley James and Angel Coulby doing the Lottery? I get such a kick of seeing him in normal clothes (like on Strictly Come Dancing, wearing a tie!), it is ridiculous. Also, he is kind of adorably endearingly lame and goofy. Like, when it was time for him to press the Lottery Plunger Of Wealth Creation he said, "May we have a deserving winner", and Angel was kind of smirking like "LOL you're an idiot" and I don't know, he is just sort of lovely. Also, this.

LOL Robin Hood. ♥ Kate Beaton!

You know what's adorable? Colin Morgan plus one non-creepy adorable small child.
sophieisgod: ([costume] mrs bennet approves)
Quantum of Solace - You should click even if you don't want to be spoiled, because there be delicious picture of Gemma Arterton! Scroll past the text! )

Also, my Tess DVD came the other week, and the making of is called "Angels and Demons". Ohh, Beeb, your publicity department must be such a cool and edgy place to work. BUT it is lovely, and the actors' responses to the characters were interesting (I love how everyone admits the twattery of Angel and how they tried to make him more sympathetic. CAST PRETTY: JOB DONE). I will have to cap it at some point because the light does strangely glorious things to Eddie's hair.
Merlin 1.07: The Gates of Avalon )
SIDE-NOTE: [livejournal.com profile] templa_otmena and I are convinced that if Arthur ever takes off his shirt it will actually cause our heads to explode. It took me a good few episodes to realise that Bradley James' chest actuallly *was* that broad, and not just armour padding designed to symbolically sugegst that Arthur is just a young man with too many responsibilties or something. HE IS ACTUALLY JUST THAT BUILT. We only ever get the glimpses through the Open-Necked Shirts Of Wonder, so if we ever saw it all at once I don't know what would happen. I think my TV might combust. Also, Bradley James was in the audience on Strictly Come Dancing last night! Hee!

AND FINALLY, since Merlin has awakened a thirst in me for all versions of this legend, what should I be reading/watching/Googling furiously? I've already downloaded Excalibur!

How are you? ♥
sophieisgod: (Default)
Hey, remember this time last year when I freaked about the cracky awesome that is Robin Hood? This is like that, but with Merlin.
So it begins... )
Now, I need your help! I need recs! I need many different kinds of fanfic, I need vids, and I need picspams! Interviews! Sexy pictures of sexy boys! I KNOW I CAN COUNT ON YOU.

In Conclusion

Oh, and re: the whole Tennant thing - I think I've ranted enough about RTD and the way Ten's character developed for you to guess I'm kind of relieved by the news. I still adore The Tennant, and my issues with the character are not at all to do with him, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for an awesome Eleven, and hoping that David continues to do magnificent theatrestuffs and other sexy things.

How are you? ♥
