eruthros: Toph, Aang, and Momo from Avatar: TLA hugging Sokka (Avatar - group hug!)
So Festivids reveals were like ... a month ago, but I am slow to post about things. I said on twitter that I made two vids, but I actually made three:

the heart is a beating drum, a The Losers Aisha (Zoe Saldana) is awesome vid. This was my assignment, though I actually matched on a different fandom and had to give up on it after I had a series of hilarious and ridiculous problems. (Like, at one point a Dell repair guy accidentally snapped the only copy of one of the movies that Netflix owned.) Fortunately I'd figured out a backup idea early after getting my assignment, so I was good to go for this. This vid is partly me vidding one of the movies I wish The Losers had been - when I originally saw it, I felt like it was secretly three different movies trying to coexist in the same two hour space, and short-changing all three of those movies as a result. I wanted to vid Aisha's narrative arc, Aisha working on her own and then finding, and maybe even sort of trusting, this team, but the lack of footage for it was sometimes pretty frustrating. And I basically had to ignore one plot entirely to make this vid make sense - Rogue (Idris Elba) almost doesn't appear here because even though they have great scenes together, Rogue is mostly off in one of the other movies in The Losers having separate plots. Sorry Idris Elba!

Also, this is the vid for which [personal profile] thingswithwings made up the vidder's musical when I was trying to figure out how to fix a codec display problem in Premiere.

I also made two treats, both for t'wings:

more chaos theory, less failure, an Avengers: EMH T'Challa pwns ppl and also there is imperialism vid. This was ... one of those weird exchange situations, where I came up with the song and told t'wings about it back before assignments went out. And then I considered making it for the only other person who had asked for EMH ([personal profile] settiai) but I wasn't sure if it really matched her requests? And so then I wasn't sure if I should make it at all, but [personal profile] thingswithwings said I should make it for her. So I did. And she betaed it, because the surprise factor was kind of lost by then. But it was a ton of fun to make! I also used a bit of the BET Black Panther series, which is a mess, since it's a motion comic done for cheap. Also it's based on the Hudlin arc. But it was useful here because we rarely see the technology of Wakanda in EMH and because EMH is not really interested in animating armies. I considered doing some comics panels as well, but then I would never have been able to stop, so.

Anyway, it was convenient that I had told t'wings that I was doing that vid, because it let me keep the other EMH vid I made an actual secret! I clipped while I was clipping for "more chaos theory, less failure," and then vidded when t'wings was asleep or out walking the dog. Mostly what I learned is that it is hard to simultaneously try to make two different vids for the same fandom. And also that it's hard to never ever hum your vid song in front of your housemate. Anyway! The third vid is:

Touches You, an Avengers: EMH villains-nonconing-heroes vid. Once I thought of making a noncon vid to this poppy Mika song, I fell in love with the concept and found the whole thing delightful. Except for the part where I got really cranky that heroes in EMH often don't fight their own damn comics nemeses. For vidding purposes, the villains are fighting the wrong superheros all the time. Like. Zemo actually says "kneel and call me master" to Thor, Hank fights Klaw, and Clint and Thor take down The Leader. So frustrating! Not that there isn't still enough footage for many, many vids of this nature. [personal profile] chagrined betaed for me and patiently downloaded many drafts as I dithered.

And [personal profile] frayadjacent made the awesome Whale Rider vid Sons and Daughters for me! It's beautiful and totally made me tear up a little.

eruthros: Toph, Aang, and Momo from Avatar: TLA hugging Sokka (Avatar - group hug!)
The [community profile] white_lotus Lunar New Year Exchange Masterlist is up! I ended up making three things for the exchange, all of which are totally id-tastic and the reveal probably wouldn't have surprised anyone who knew me if it weren't for the fact that I rarely make three things in a year.

Title: Ephemera from the Avatar Collection at Republic City University with notes and commentary by the archivists
For: [personal profile] livrelibre
Characters/Ships: non-explicit canon relationships
Notes: no [community profile] white_lotus standard notes; references to post-series events including violence and major character death pre-Korra
Summary: Many of these pieces lack provenience, as they were recovered after the Great Fire destroyed the Kuei Royal Collection at Ba Sing Se University.

The Avatar Collection is not available to the public. Scholarly inquiries should be directed to the Chief Archivist.

This was my 48 hour pinch hit! We had a late drop-out, and so I made this over the weekend - I did the photoshopping on Saturday, then didn't have time to do anything on Sunday because I'd already arranged to go to a museum with some folks. (The de Young's Masters of Venice show, which gave me a migraine and made everyone I went with feel sick and dizzy - wow were those bad labels.) So I finished it up late Sunday and then Monday morning and made [personal profile] chagrined beta it when ze was totally drunk and then wrestled with the AO3 Monday night to try to get the formatting to work out. And after I did that, I did:

Tiitle: Spa Day (titles are hard okay)
For: [personal profile] pleonasm/[ profile] dropsofviolet
Characters/Ships: Katara/Toph, Katara/Aang, lots of implied offscreen relationships
Notes: no [community profile] white_lotus standard notes
Summary: By the twelfth day of the border negotiation, Katara's barely holding on to her temper. She really needs some time off.

This was my four hour pinch hit! I freaked out when we didn't get a pinch hit exactly at a late deadline (though it worked out okay in the end) and did this late Monday night. It's pretty much thanks to [personal profile] glass_icarus, who was very helpful on IM talking about what all of the gaang need and want from each other. Also I was thinking of a great drawing of the adult gaang while I was writing it, but I can't find it now. [personal profile] chagrined betaed this, too, and [personal profile] such_heights also took a look at it.

I kind of want to write tons of other bits of this sort of warm, comfortable, post-series giant established open relationship, too, now: Aang and Zuko on a mountain together, Mai and Ty Lee on Kyoshi, Zuko and Mai visiting Toph, Aang and Katara and Zuko and Mai together in the Fire Nation Capital, Toph hitting Aang with rocks, all these different ways of being friends and lovers.

Title: a deep delight of the blood
For: [personal profile] thingswithwings
Characters/Ships: Katara/Zuko
Notes: The one with kinky bloodbending! It contains many kinks (see tags at the ao3) playing with obedience, control, consent, humiliation, temperature, bodies, and other fun things. Lots of kink, no sex. Characters are their canonical third-season ages.
Summary: "Me. You could practice on me. If I'm telling you that you can do it, it can't be wrong to practice - just in case - "

I wrote the first 4000 words of this for the exchange last year, and then didn't finish or post it because the timing was totally awful and I didn't think [personal profile] thingswithwings would appreciate giftfic at the time. I kept meaning to finish it after that, but never did, because writing is hard and I need deadlines. I did a bit more throughout the year, but didn't actually write the last five hundred words until the last weekend of the exchange. [personal profile] livrelibre and [personal profile] chagrined looked at this and were very reassuring when it had 4000 words and then looked at it again when I'd finished it, because they are awesome, even if I resisted every time [personal profile] livrelibre tried to convince me to take out some semicolons.

Also, I didn't title it until seriously the last minute, when I was despairing of ever coming up with a title and looking at quotes and song lyrics and I hated everything. And then I found this Santayana quote that made me giggle - "To knock a thing down, especially if it is cocked at an arrogant angle, is a deep delight to the blood" - so it ended up being the title even though probably it's about war or something, idk.
eruthros: Olivia from Fringe looking out at the camera (Fringe - Olivia on the right)
fandom: Fringe/The X-Files
words: 5100
rating: makeouts, no explicit sex
contains: references to X-Files and Fringe-style body horror, mostly offscreen
notes: For [personal profile] lilacsigil as part of [community profile] femslash11. Thanks to [personal profile] thingswithwings for beta and for suggesting "red menace" when I was stumped.

summary: Walter waves his doughnut in the general direction of the desiccated corpses and the cocoon, spraying Broyles' coat with powdered sugar. "You know, this reminds me of Dana's description of prehistoric bug attacks some years ago."

notes: Look, you guys, I finally finished something that I started three years ago for [community profile] kink_bingo! Thanks to [personal profile] chagrined and [personal profile] livrelibre and [personal profile] thingswithwings for encouragement and beta. The title is from the Contemporary English Version of the Song of Songs 8:1, which leaves out the bit about breastfeeding.

summary: "Oh, shit," he says, feeling his face heat with anger and embarrassment. And then, since he's drawn the clerk's attention, "... we're brothers."

if you were my brother I could kiss you )
eruthros: Katara from Avatar: TLA making an eye-rolly sort of face (Avatar - katara rolling her eyes)
Um. There are ... more than a hundred (spoilery) Avatar icons under this cut )

So, um. How I ended up making a hundred plus A:TLA icons.

I liked the show a lot, and when I watch shows in genres that are relatively unfamiliar to me, I try to pay attention to the structures of the genre so that I can figure out what the show is trying to do. Anyway, one of the ways I do this, sometimes, is through screencaps and iconing, because screencaps and iconing involve figuring out how a show frames the characters and the scenes, how it conveys emotion, how it plays with space and color and things.

And I liked Avatar, and starting with the second season -- I'd watched the first mostly while doing other things -- I started screencapping it to try to get a sense of the genre, and then I started iconing it, and then I didn't stop. And then today I was having a shitty day, and I thought, fuck it, I will just upload all those icons that I made and then enjoy looking at a table filled with all the awesome characters from Avatar. Because they are awesome. Hang on, I'm gonna go be reminded of how awesome they are some more.
eruthros: kink: a woman in handcuffs (kink: handcuffs)
