eruthros: kink: a girl showing off her tongue piercing and studded collar (kink: tongue piercing)
I have been having trouble posting lately; I feel like I can't finish anything, or like I can't manage to write coherent sentences. So this is me saying fuck it, and possibly by the end of the post I'll be down to bullet points, but at least I'll be posting something.

So! The [community profile] kink_bingo arbitrary mod prizes are a sort of recs list, but they could never include include all the awesome fanworks that I wanted to give prizes to. So here are some other [community profile] kink_bingo fanworks that I enjoyed, in a wide range of fandoms. (A sad percentage of Mission Read/Listen To/Look At All the Things is spent crossreferencing headers with wikipedia before reading/looking at/listening to, actually. Now I have learned about The Losers! Maybe someday I will even watch it. It could happen.)

[personal profile] oper_1895's bingo. (White Collar, Peter/Neal and Peter/Neal/Elizabeth, all set in the same universe in which Neal is asexual.) What I like )

[personal profile] tristesses's bingo (Start Trek AOS Gaila/Uhura, Harry Potter Cho/Padma, Temeraire Laurence/Tharkay) What I like )

[personal profile] cypher's bingos; she wrote 15 stories this round, so if you're looking for a place to start how about Instinct (Eternal Poison, Rondemion/Logue) or Extra Strength (Last Remnant, Rush/David) or Whole New World (.hack//GU, Kuhn/Silabus). What I like )

[personal profile] busaikko's whole bingo (SGA, John/Rodney, John/Ronon; in the John/Rodney stories John is asexual, in the John/Ronon story Ronon is a trans man) What I like )

[personal profile] gloss's We all got in tune (Middleman, Wendy/Lacey/Noser) and Motherfuckers, quick to kiss (DCU, Dick Grayson/Jason Todd, Nightwing/Robin/Superman) What I like )

[livejournal.com profile] blackfic's This is Our Love Story (White Collar, Peter/Elizabeth) What I like )

[personal profile] pocketmouse's Quantum Equilibrium and Little Red Book (Doctor Who, Amy/Rory + Eleven) What I like )

[livejournal.com profile] the_deep_magic's multi-fandom writing on the body recs list (several fandoms) What I like )

[personal profile] liodain's bingos (Watchmen, Dan/Rorschach fic and art) What I like )

[livejournal.com profile] igbc's Pierced Through the Heart (Starsky and Hutch, Starsky/Hutch) What I like )

Also if you're looking for even more fanworks, you could check out my kink bingo tag on delicious or thingswithwing's kink bingo tag. (We each only looked at half the things, actually, and then made short lists for each other, so there's a lot of non-overlapping stuff there.)

... in other news, guys, I am down to like eight open fic tabs, all of which are giant epic stories of giantness. Wow. Also I guess I might have to read some of those giant epic stories of giantness or something. Maybe I'll finally read The Hard Prayer! (Leftmost fic tab, open at least eight months. Someday I will read it.)

The top five (*cough*) vids from 2008 that I posted a while back made me think about the vids that I missed when they were first released; I listed my vids in order of download, and I kept thinking "no, that's actually from 2006!" And then I totally wrote half of a post on it, and forgot I'd done so. *facepalm* But still, on the off chance that you too missed these vids in 2006, here are some of the best vids I came to late:

Sunset Boulevard, Angel: The Series, by [livejournal.com profile] butterfly (July 6, 2006; it was part of a Vividcon vid show this year)
This is amazing, so completely something I wanted out of the show and didn't get. I wish Gunn got to have this kind of coherent narrative, that his sacrifices and choices were made as clear on the show as they are in the vid. I thought I wouldn't like the vid, because it's the John Barrowman version of the song, and I greatly dislike John Barrowman's singing. BUT. This vid triumphs regardless, makes a beautiful thing of Gunn's plots on Angel, and I love it to pieces.

Holding Out for a Hero, Hercules: the Legendary Journeys, by [livejournal.com profile] marycrawford (February 27th, 2006; I found it when I went to Mary Crawford's website looking for Improper Dancing)
OMG. Just: OMG. I saw that Mary Crawford had done this vid, and [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings and I downloaded it and watched it together, and you guys, I have never occupied the gay male gaze as hard as I did here. Also: I almost can't believe that all of these clips appeared on the show. And I watched it recently. It's a glorious celebration of Hercules-as-hero, pursued by women and drag!Iolaus, and it celebrates Hercules's camp and magical realism and it's just lovely.

Cool Rider, Veronica Mars, by [livejournal.com profile] dualbunny (January 22nd, 2006; I found it when I was idly scrolling back through dualbunny's vids)
Another great, fun vid -- [livejournal.com profile] dualbunny has me in the introduction, which is just completely brilliant -- Logan on his scooter, Weevil on his bike. Man, way to take the awesome Logan/Weevil relationship on the show and pick just the perfect, most hilarious song ever. Nobody else knows what Logan needs!

Joy to the World, Starsky and Hutch, by [livejournal.com profile] giandujakiss (December 29th, 2006; I hadn't been much in S&H, and then when [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings started watching, she was like "hey, did you know gianduja did some s&h vids? we should download them!" And then they were awesome.)
So, a lot of Starsky and Hutch vids celebrate the angst and the buddy-cop relationship, and hey, I was in the Sentinel in the 90s, of course I love those vids like crazy. But Starsky and Hutch is also great fun: it's fun to watch, it's fun to think about, it's fun to write about. I mean, they go undercover as gay hairdressers twice. And this vid celebrates the fun of S&H -- the Joy-to-the-World, the laughter, the crazy times. It's got beautiful timing, and great clip choice, and it's all about Starsky and Hutch having fun crazy times and laughing at and with each other. I watch it when I'm bummed out, because my bummed out can't survive [livejournal.com profile] giandujakiss's awesome verse about the times they go undercover-straight, and the choruses with dancing. Whee!

Five on the Dime, Buffy, by [livejournal.com profile] shati (November 6, 2006)
and while you're there, download Boulevard of Broken Songs too (September 11, 2006)
[livejournal.com profile] shati does something awesome with Five on the Dime: she recontextualizes the sacrifices of the Scoobies, especially Willow, around Buffy. Just, completely amazing, the lines she draws between early seasons and later seasons, Buffy's sacrifices and a certain kind of hopelessness.

What About Everything, Babylon 5, by [livejournal.com profile] _happyme_ (the original is from 2005; remastered and/or edited August 8th, 2007. [livejournal.com profile] sineala sent the link to me a while back when I was lamenting the lack of B5 vids)
I really strongly suspect that if you've never seen B5, or only seen three minutes of it, that this vid will make absolutely no sense at all, because it's really fast and really contextual. (Also, if you're a B5 fan? It has season five in it. FYI. Also, I assume I don't have to tell you anything other than that it is a B5 vid, but just in case.) This vid fills me with glee -- it's Sheridan focused, but there's a verse for everybody, and everybody's pain and everybody's growth is in here -- the Ivanova bit is beautiful, the Garibaldi bit is great. [livejournal.com profile] _happyme_ has me from the moment of "some stubborn leaves / that didn't fall with the fall" -- it's exactly the kind of foreshadowing, exactly the kind of tentative-hopeful, that B5 is. Also, it has two of the most beautiful lines I've ever seen in a vid, when the song says "I find it hard to complain / when compared with," and it's G'Kar and Londo, their relationship really really fast in those two lines, because this might be a Sheridan vid, but, well. When compared with.

Dude, you guys, [personal profile] giandujakiss just posted an incredible Starsky and Hutch vid.

To "The Real Slim Shady." Which, okay, I know -- it sounds ridiculous, or if, like me, you can't stand Eminem, it sounds awful. But it is amazing, I promise. Just give it a try, and try to stick it out to the end, because I really do read this vid as about the buddy cop show as a genre and (as [personal profile] thingswithwings said when I emailed her) as doing incredible things with character tropes, both within and outside the show, so that at the end the real slim shady is ... well, just, watch the vid. Also, it manages to use Eminem in a way where I'm totally embarrassed by the thought that my neighbors think I listen to this music (see also: "Another Sunday," "Snakes on a Plane") but in this particular vid context, with this concept, it is AWESOME. I promise!

Also, it's technically amazing. Not just the cuts, but these amazing fades and erasures that play with the idea of the real slim shady. Or that's what I think. *nods*
