So what if she slips up sometimes when trying to pass as a human? So what if she has not yet perfected the art of being a superhero the way her cousin has?
She can't be anything other than herself, so she supposes she might as well embrace it and declare that truth to the world. Everyone is gonna have to get used to it.
Yay I made a full length vid! ;) My first ever vid in this fandom. I love this show. I love Kara so much. This was made for Festivids, as a gift dedicated to Azar. http://fv-poster.dreamwidth.org/310564.
Let me know if you have any questions!
(Only the first 9 episodes of the series are included in the vid.)
If you could please comment on the YouTube vid, (link above, directly under the vid...) I'd appreciate it!
Also if you want a download link, let me know asap and let me know what size & format you want it in. It's already rendered in 1080p .wmv which plays all wrong on my computer, doesn't even look 16:9 widescreen on my computer, but I'm still using an old Windows XP machine so that may be the problem. I can re-render it in my Sony Vegas a number of ways, just let me know, though.
Artist: Kerrie Roberts
Leslie Willis: It is time for my annual list of things I am not grateful for. And this year's list is only... one item: Supergirl!
Kara: It's my family's coat of arms.
Maxwell Lord: The world's most unreliable superhero!
Kara: I can't be in two places at once!
Alex: Why did you hesitate?
Cat: Do me a favor and take off your glasses.
Kara: I'm not Supergirl.
Cat: Every minute that you waste playing assistant in here is a minute that someone out there is not getting saved.
Hank Henshaw: You *cannot* lose control like that!
Cat: So the flying, the super strength, the freezy-breath thing...
Kara: I'm still working on that last one.
Cat: Oh.... So you're not up to his level yet.
[heat vision sound effect]
Kara: I wouldn't say that.
Hank Henshaw: I don't trust aliens.
Kara: I started this. You have to let me stop it.
Alex: Kara risks her life to protect other people, and she is a hero.
Kara: It's not *her* fault that I decided to become Supergirl.
Alura's hologram: There is no correct path in life.
Kara: That was *my* choice.
Alura's hologram: Be wise. Be strong. And always be true to yourself.
James: No hero can save everyone. But a real hero never stops trying.
James: You being killed is not going to help anybody!
Cat: What is she going to do when she has to face a real threat? Oh, I know! She'll call her cousin.
James: You don't even need powers... to be a hero.
Hey there Festividder! I'm really excited that you're making a vid for me. I'm bound to like anything at all you could possibly make for me in one of these fandoms.
Check out my videos (the non-collabs on here): https://www.youtube.com/user/
luvtheheaven5/videos and here: https://www.youtube.com/user/ luvtheheavenFOX4/videos if you're curious to see my general music tastes, the best way is to probably see the songs I've vidded. :P
In general I'm very open-minded, though, about music, especially when it comes to a fanvideo. So in general, anything at all you want to vid is fine by me. Cursing (explicit language), any genre, etc.
These were all of my requested fandoms this time around:
- Being Erica [TV]
- Continuum [TV]
- RPF - Black Lives Matter movement [Other]
- Six Feet Under [TV]
- Southland [TV]
- Supergirl (2015) [TV]
- A Series of Unfortunate Events [Movie]
- The Way Way Back (2013) [Movie]
A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004) [Movie]
MusicI really think something... in a minor chord, or just... creepy/off/dark/unusual... might work well with this fandom? Any song choice at all is fine, though.
DetailsI adored these books, the entire series, and the movie's aesthetic is pretty amazingly true to the series, even if I thought they got Count Olaf all wrong. He was too... goofy from what I recall. Not as sinister as he should've been. But if you want to show your differing POV on Count Olaf, or make a vid that fixes him to be more like the creepier interpretation I have, that'd be fine... :P Anything you made me for this film would be great. This series will always have a very special place in my heart.
Being Erica [TV]
MusicNo music preference. I did have a couple ideas back in the day, though. "Sky's Still Blue" by Andrew Belle, probably the Microsoft commercial version that has much more upbeat lyrics but MAYBE the darker, sadder, EP version he released, for an Erica character study that would sort of be a cast vid. Or maybe just a cast vid set to it. Or "Please Don't Leave Me" by P!nk for Dr. Tom lol. A male cover version of it probably doesn't exist, so... :P I don't know. Even "Better Days" by the Goo Goo Dolls for Adam/Erica. There are so many ideas I'm never going to make. I would love to be surprised by your music choice and by whatever aspect of the show you vid.
DetailsAnything in the fandom would be great. My OTP is Erica/Adam, followed closely by Erica/Kai, but even Erica/Josh (or something like Sam/Josh) would intrigue me to see a vid of, especially if you follow their entire canon story, the complexity of the dynamic, and don't just turn it into pure shippiness. I love Dr. Tom, his daughter Sarah... I love really the whole show. Character studies, whatever you wanted to do. I've only vidded Being Erica briefly in collab parts and multi-fandoms, myself, plus one full Dr. Tom/Erica tribute that was not a very good fanvideo. It was more an overview of their scenes. If you're curious to see what I said about my preferences for Being Erica last year, this was my letter, and all that still applies, as well: luvtheheaven.dreamwidth.org/596.html
MusicGo wild, do what you want, but I do have a few ideas that might be fun:
Kiera & her 4 main love interests, Greg, Kellog, Carlos, and Brad set to any version of "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" from Kiera's POV, I was thinking a slow version, though, a sadder version, male or female singer, doesn't matter. If you're inspired for a fast paced version like maybe the original (or a similar style cover) that'd be fun too though!
"Centuries" by Fall Out Boy would work amazingly for this show. Either a full cast vid with everybody or just select a few people to vid -- I was thinking the lyrics could work especially great for Alec, Kellog, Julian, but even Kiera and maybe Liber8... I don't know. You could also pick one person to do a character study of?
"Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic", maybe the Sleeping at Last cover, maybe the original, or idk another cover, surprise me. Carlos' POV toward Kiera. Because you know, she's from the future and her tech seems like Magic. And the unrequited love is their whole story. And "a thousand rainy days since we first met" works so well for them because did you notice how many rainy scenes they happen to share? Quite a few. :P 1x07, 3x02, 3x05, probably more. But that lyric could be so easily matched metaphorically too.
"Let Me Go" by 3 Doors Down could fit so many characters' POV. It could work for a single relationship like Kiera/Carlos or Alec/Emily, from the women's POVs, but you could also just like, maybe a character study for a variety of the characters or a cast vid or a multicouples vid set to it. Idk. It'd be a good one for so many aspects of this show. And I've always loved the song.
Okay any song is fine by me, these were just... some ideas I had.
DetailsThis beautiful, amazing show has a very dear place in my heart. If you make a vid for this fandom I'll be so thrilled and will enjoy it, whatever it is. I particularly love Alec and Kiera as characters -- everything about them, every relationship, friendship, crack ship, family bond, etc they have... including of course 1977 elderly Alec and his nuances, I mean in every timeline, all versions of them. Definitely always preferred Red Alec to Green Alec (see wikipedia's season 3 of Continnum page for an explanation). I also really find Greg fascinating and kind of loveable, I don't understand the hate he got. Brad, and Carlos, and Jason... they're all so fascinating in their own ways... Kellog too. Basically a character study about any of those I just listed or a relationship vid including any of those characters would be epic, platonic, romantic, sexual, whatever. Except Alec/Kiera I definitively do not "Ship", but I accept the idea that at every age Alec finds Kiera attractive and desireable, it's just... please it needs to stay unrequited. I really don't want a pro-Alec/Kiera romance/sex type vid. I don't mind Brad/Kiera or Carlos/Kiera remaining friends, but I also love them as ships. I wouldn't say I ship Kellog/Kiera but they have a very interesting and often hilarious/fun relationship. I would especially love a father/son Alec/Jason vid, an Alec&Kiera tribute vid, or a Brad/Kiera vid since I don't think any of them exist already anywhere. Anything that you can't find existing on YouTube would make me happy. Cast videos are great too! General tributes to EVERYTHING the show is (was).
I'm... thinking of adding my own couple of Continuum vids to the mix sometime in the next few months, btw. Hopefully before festivids is over I'll have made both of my ideas. Not for any of the songs I suggested above. I have other song ideas and am planning to make one Alec & Kiera tribute and one Kiera/Carlos vid. But I can't be sure I'll have time to ever finish them anyway.
I um would probably love a unique vid about the Liber8 folks too, or just one or a few of them. I do like Emily/Alec because like I said, anything relating to my fave characters is great and she has quite the dynamics with most of them. Anything you want to vid. But my absolute faves I listed first.
RPF - Black Lives Matter movement [Other]
MusicThe song choice here has to be powerful, intense, meaningful, serious... otherwise it doesn't work. This is a serious subject to take on vidding. The song should reflect that. It can be instrumental if you want, of course, but even then, the right kind of instrumental -- probably not something recognizable from a movie, unless the movie has clear parallels to the real life issues, etc.
DetailsBe creative, do whatever inspires you. I'm not black myself, FYI (I'm white, although I am also partially of Jewish decent).
Six Feet Under [TV]
MusicNo music preference. I did have a couple ideas I really wanted to make years ago though. A SFU Cast vid to "Breakable" by Ingrid Michaelson. A David/Keith video to any version of "Iris", originally by the Goo Goo Dolls. (I had thought I'd vid the original once upon a time. But no. That's not happening.) a Nate video set to "When I'm Gone" by 3 Doors Down, maybe Nate/Brenda but I'd probably prefer for it to also have other Nate character study stuff. Vid whatever theme AND whatever music inspires you, though. These were jsut some ideas I had.
DetailsThis show is always going to have a special place in my heart. Everything David was my favorite. My OTP was David/Keith. But I liked the whole family, and if a song fits a specific storyline well, I'm sure I'll love it. I never was a huge fan of Billy though, or Brenda's family... and I prefere d Brenda when she was more "together", like near the very end of the series?? I don't know. Anything you want to vid is fine. I've made a few Six Feet Under videos before, on YouTube, about Claire/Gabe, Claire's Abortion, the series finale episode, and some collab parts like for a step-parents collab I vidded Brenda/Maya or I vidded Brenda/Nate and David/Keith and "cast" parts. They were all so short though. I really would love to see clips I'd forgotten about, aspects of the show that made it what it is, etc. Anything you want to vid would be great. If you'd like to see what I said about my preferences for Six Feet Under last year, here's my letter, which I'm sure still applies: luvtheheaven.dreamwidth.org/596.html
MusicNo music preference.
DetailsI really loved this show. Anything you wanted to vid about it, from it... go for it. I think my favorites were Lydia, Sammy, and Ben, but John Cooper was close behind and I don't know, the whole series was pretty intense and awesome.
Supergirl (2015) [TV]
MusicNo music preference.
Details(May be updated as I watch more of the serpies) I already love this show and it hasn't even aired yet. I've seen the 6 min trailer, and I've seen everything Melissa Benoist has ever appeared in. Literally. I don't just mean Glee. But of course, Marley... I related to her so much. I really love her. I loved the version of Supergirl we got to see on the TV series Smallville. I don't mind comics being included in vids and really anything you want to do to introduce me to another version of Supergirl or make a compelling crossover or AU plot is fine if you wanted to use outside footage, just make it at least 50% this new fandom. Of course 100% a vid about this 2015 series Supergirl would be GREAT too. Any type of vid, shippy, maybe Jimmy (James?)/Kara (I loved Jimmy/Kara in Smallville and love that they race-bent with the casting choice), or possibly non-incestuous non-huge-age-gap femslash could work for me, or a character study or general cast vid. Do what inspires you!
The Way Way Back (2013) [Movie]
MusicI think a piece of music that's simple, maybe acoustic, maybe just an older song, might fit this movie well. But any music choice that inspires you, even if it's jazz or rap or something unexpected, would be fun.
DetailsI really loved this film. The part that captivated me was the main kid, but if you want to vid a side plot, go for it.
Fandoms (all are fine for both sending and receiving) - all are TV fandoms: Glee, Gilmore Girls, Criminal Minds, The Flash (2014 TV Series), Psych, Veronica Mars, Pretty Little Liars, Shameless (US Version), Queer as Folk (US Version), Switched at Birth, The Fosters, Chasing Life, Greek, Kyle XY, Parenthood (2010 TV series), Orphan Black, Continuum, Being Erica, Saving Hope, Motive, Rookie Blue, Smallville, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Heroes and Heroes Reborn (and I also know the Heroes Reborn "Dark Matters" webseries that go along with those), Faking It (2014 TV series), Finding Carter, The 100, Covert Affairs, Friday Night Lights, Everwood, Blindspot (2015 TV series), Joan of Arcadia, and House (also known as House M.D.).
I know way more TV series/movies than this and listen to podfics in larger ones sometimes too but I would really love for this exchange to only receive/only work within one of these 34 fandoms. ;)
I don't have any actual triggers. At least not the PTSD kind. I was traumatized by my abusive mother so her name and a few other things might sort of trigger me -- like a grief trigger kind of way -- but I'll live if it's in a fic. :P
Things I probably will have trouble enjoying if you record a fic including them:
Pro-religion/faith fics -- or anything demonizing non-belief. It's fine if the character is religious and it's explored or mentioned in a fic that they believe, especially if their religiousness is canon. I just don't like feeling preached to. I'm an atheist. I've written about characters praying and believing though. It's just the evangelizing to the "reader" (listener) in fic form that upsets me.
Fics that promote corporal punishment as a valid way for parents to discipline children (I have gotten uncomfortable reading fics like these in the past, believe it or not).
Fics with non-canonical huge age differences in ships, like parent or teacher characters being paired with high schoolers, even if the high schooler is all grown up in the fic. :P So basically, I don't want to listen to a story about huge age gaps for ships that are non-canonical. However, if someone's written about a student who really dated her teacher in the TV show, or something like that, that's different, because it's canon. I can listen to a that.
Non-canonical incest in most cases.
Podfics where over 15% of it is porn. (I'm asexual and somewhat sex-averse, although I can listen to sex scenes sometimes, especially if it's part of a larger plot. I can also enjoy it a lot more if the oneshot is a "cute" kind of sex scene, like with giggling and awkwardness stuff in it, FYI!)
Fics that erase asexuality as an identity or "cure" it or anything offensive to an asexual person like me... :P A line in a character's dialogue or their POV narration about how "everyone is sexual" I can live with, a line from an author/omniscient narrator might hurt a bit more... :P But the main problem is if the entire story, or a whole section of it (more than just a line) is anti-aces. Of course, I also don't want to hear biphobic or transphobic fics, I'm a strong ally of all LGBTQPIA+ identities.
Some of the MANY things I really love in fics:
I especially love Gen fics, meaning family or friendship or character study focused with preferably canon background ships, I'll live if it's fanon or other background ships though. :P I mean I'll also enjoy a LOT of non-gen stuff. It's just that I particularly love Gen.
I love canon-based fics, filling in the blanks of canon, giving us scenes we never got on the show but should've, giving us scenes we did get but from inside a character's head, etc, etc.
I love extreme angst and drama. I'm not afraid of a non-happy ending, a major character death even if non-canonical, a fic all about grief, about rape or about some other kind of extreme trauma if dealt with as appropriately serious and in a realistic way. I love fics dealing with child abuse and/or being a survivor of it because I myself am a survivor of my mother's abuse and even if I can't relate exactly I can often relate to parts of it and I really love that experience, it's cathartic and I love different people's take on it in fanfiction. I like stories about cancer and terminal illnesses etc -- medical shows in general are my jam and so was Chasing Life (sucks that it was just canceled). I don't shy away from suicidal thoughts/suicides/grief either. Those fics can be amazing.
I also love cute fluffiness. Honestly I'm pretty easy to please. :P Happy endings make me happy too, of course. Etc.
I love fics that explore coming out or understanding/figuring out a character's own queerness, or the process of questioning, coming to terms with it, embracing it, etc etc. Any form of queerness. Including of course asexuality, or ace-spectrum stuff, or aromantic-spectrum stuff, but also any other form of queerness, like being gay or bi or trans etc... :P
I like hurt/comfort of any variety, silly to really extreme.
I LOVE adoption or fostering in fics, and also have a thing for female pregnancy -- even when cliche like with Teen pregnancy or whatever.
I like disabilities/mental illnesses/etc explored in fics, especially headcanons that a character could really have it in canon as a reasonable interpretation. Those can be so amazing. Also AU of what if a character had this disability can work great or exploring canonical disabiltiies on fandoms of mine that have them.
I especially love podfics for underrated/often forgotten about characters. ;)
I tend to like, in order from most to least, Gen best, then all canon ships, doesn't matter if they're het or slash or femslash, then AU ships with characters' canonical sexual orientations in tact, then AU femslash ships between canonically straight characters, and finally AU male slash ships between canonically straight characters. So yeah, I like femslash more than male slash... but I do like all of it. And I'm mainly a canon girl.
(People don't tend to do AU het ships between canonically gay characters, usually that's considered offensive in fandom as a whole. I probably wouldn't enjoy a lot of cases of it, mainly since I already have a tiny bit of trouble re-interpreting a character's sexual orientation, but if an author interprets a character as bi instead of gay it could work in some cases in a fun and non-offensive way. If you want to podfic something like that go for it and I'll be intrigued.)
If in doubt, it's probably fine. I enjoy being challenged to enjoy new things.
So about my fave characters & ships, and other preferences, within fandoms!
Glee - I kind of love everything in this fandom, exceptions being what Tina became after season 1, and I don't feel much for Mercedes or Mike either. I'd strongly prefer the fic not be about one of those 3. I really really love everyone else. :P I'm desperate to be exposed to some good post-season 6 explorations of Rachel/Sam as endgame or, alternately, how endgame Rachel/Jesse came to be. I adore Quinn/Puck as an OTP. I do ship Emma/Will, but I don't mind anti-Will sentiments either. I like both Klaine and Kurtofsky and also don't mind anti-Klaine stuff in Karofsky based fics or anti-Karofsky stuff in Klaine fics, even if I am personally a multi-shipper. I like Artie, Sam, Quinn/Sam... and I also like Marley so much, and Marley/Jake, but don't mind Marley/Ryder either. I love Beiste in every form, including definitely fics from pre-season 6 and him transitioning to male. I kind of don't like that he was made trans. If you record a Beiste fic with female pronouns I will enjoy it. Nothing transphobic, just that she's a gender-nonconforming cis woman in that fic. Rachel mourning Finn really gets to me (in a really good way! I love it), and I like Finchel and Brittana and most of the canon ships. Hummel-Hudson family fics or fics including Burt and/or Carole are my weakness. I adore them so much. I like to interpret Quinn as heteroromantic bisexual and Santana as homoromantic bisexual. :P I don't mind the idea of bisexual Blaine either. It was almost canon in season 2, anyway. I like to interpret Marley and Beiste as asexual, and Kurt and Emma as demisexuals or gray-asexuals. None of these interpretations are required -- they're pretty rare lol. But I'm not the only one to interpret a lot of the characters this way.
Gilmore Girls - my #1 OTP of all time, out of all of my fandoms, is Rory/Jess. I really adore them. I also like Lorelai/Christopher a LOT, not in the endgame sense but in the exploration of what they were. I support endgame Lorelai/Luke. I also love Paris and Lane and any ship you want to give either girl, het or femslash. I don't mind other canon Rory or Lorelai ships explored in fic form though, any Gilmore Girls podfic would be wonderful even if it's anti-my ship or whatever... or original characters explored with Rory either. Jess character studies or exploration of his family relationships is everything to me. This fandom means so much to me and I doubt I'll match with anyone on it but yeah. I figured I'd list my preferences just in case.
Criminal Minds - Sexual stuff in this fandom squicks me out a little more than in other fandoms, because I'm so not used to it, ESPECIALLY for non-canonical orientations for the characters. I love how asexual and platonic this fandom is in canon, and my favorite fanfiction stuff explores gen (meaning non-romance), or explores PG-romances. I mean, the show is very violent and rated TV-14 most of the time -- your fic can be similarly extreme in terms of that kind of thing, or possibly worse -- feel free to do rated R or rated MA for violence/gore and I'll be fine. I love Reid finding love, with original characters or canon characters, but I don't want to hear a fic about his sex life in more than a vague way, especially since I am pretty attached to the common headcanon that he is asexual. Other characters I accept as more sexual lol... I'll live with some sex... and I like all of the characters, ALL of them, including the one-season characters. I love this whole show.
The Flash (2014 TV Series) - yes I know the Arrow verse too, but I have been loving The Flash so much more than Arrow lately so I only wanted to list The Flash as a fandom for this ITPE. A crossover would be okay with Arrow though. Just... make sure there's some The Flash. My OTP on this show is Barry/Iris. I also just love Iris a lot, so any ship for her, including crossovers into Arrow, either het or femslash, would probably make me happy. Sex stuff probably would squick me out more in this fandom than in a lot of fandoms. (Like what I just said above from Criminal Minds.) You can have characters experiencing lust/attraction and of course romantic feelings, but if you could avoid the actual sex scenes I'd be happier. Barry and either or both of his two dads (Henry or Joe) would make me so happy in a fic. Or Henry alone, or with someone else, or Joe with someone else of course... I love those characters in their own right as well, Barry or not. I do love Caitlin and Cisco. I do not support Caitlin/Ronnie at all, they're my anti-ship of the canon. :P I liked Eddie a lot. Barry is my heart and soul and why I adore the fandom.
Psych - Not one of my biggest fandoms but it's very fun and I love it, especially Shawn-centric things, especially Shawn gen stuff (with Lassiter, with Gus, with his dad, with whoever, him alone, etc) or Shawn/Juliet. I always did ship Shules, not that passionately, but yeah.
I also loved Juliet/Lassiter. Lassiter stuff makes me happy, especially unrequited feelings for people. I did like his endgame ship on the show. I'll also still enjoy it if you want to record something Lassiter slashy for me. :P I'd probably prefer it over male slash in this fandom that doesn't include Lassiter.
Pretty Little Liars - Oh gosh, this show. I just finished watching the entire show for the first time -- and I watched it at a record pace lol, so it's all very fresh for me. I would probably enjoy hearing a podfic about anybody at all. My absolute faves are Spencer, and Emily... and Toby, and Alison, and Mike. Yes Mike, don't ask. Lol. Oh yeah, and I totally adore Jason and like Wren a lot too... and find Cece kind of fascinating... I love those characters all so much and anything including them in some capacity would be fun. Crack ships that are het or femslash would make me thrilled as well in this fandom... anything "out there" would be fun. But also you know me, filling in the blanks of canon is also my jam, like one of my favorite things ever. :P I am not super anti- any ships. I don't really ship Aria/Ezra though. So happy endings for them don't do much for me. It's fine if they're part of a larger story or a multi-ship story or a sub-part of some good gen... but if the whole focus is gonna be on just 1 ship, I'd rather you do any other ship.
Shameless (US Version) - anything would make me happy in this fandom but my favorite characters are Lip and Fiona, although I also love Carl, Ian, Debbie, etc. I love the Gallagher family so much. I know Ian/Mickey is the most popular thing by far. I would enjoy a podfic about them, for sure. My #1 OTP is Lip/Karen, though, and my crack OTP that I adore the idea of is Mandy/Karen. I enjoy all of Fiona's 3 main canon ships in their own ways, especially her husband this past season and Jimmy/Steve. I would be thrilled if you recorded anything in this fandom for me, and don't forget about the option of doing Gen.
The Fosters - anything NOT Brandon/Callie would make me happy in this fandom. I just simply don't ship them. I love all of the other canon ships... and the family bonds and friendships... I also don't mind Callie & Brandon as friends.
Smallville - anything not sexual or romantic Clex would be good, including friendship Clark&Lex being fine. I know the show very well and appreciate every single canon ship, and if you want to do an AU ship, as long as it's not the very popular Clex I'll be happy. :P I host a Smallville collab group over on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/
Orphan Black - anything in this severely under-podficced fandom would be fine, but I don't adore Cosima/Delphine the way a lot of people do, so while I like them a lot, if you wanted to do something that included another character (or a few) too or instead, I'd be especially thrilled. My OTPs are SoccerCop (Alison/Beth), LumberPunk (Cal/Sarah), and maybe Helena/Gracie or Mark/Gracie. My favorite characters are Sarah, Felix, Alison, Gracie, Beth, Cal, Siobhan, and Cosima. I don't mind Cosima being paired with other women instead of Delphine. I liked her and Shay this past season! I do like Donnie and Alison/Donnie somewhat. If you want to record Cophine for me I'll still be happy. They can be really cute. ;)
The Vampire Diaries & The Originals - obviously you can do one or the other, but as shows within the same universe you CAN do a crossover/both if you want. I am not passionate about most of the ships right now but I do really love Hayley/Klaus and Stefan/Caroline as my OTPs of the moment. If I had to pick 1 I'm passionate about, it's Hayley/Klaus. ;) I also like Hayley/Jackson and Klaus/Cami, and I like both sides of the Stefan/Elena/Damon triangle and enjoyed Stefan/Katherine as well as Elijah/Katherine... I love Matt. And Liz. And Jeremy. Definitely Jeremy. Why don't enough people care about Jeremy?? And I adore Davina. ;) I like Elijah & Hayley much better as a friendship than a ship. (Note: I did record a Klaus/Caroline podfic once per someone's request but I don't actually ship them, not at all.)
The 100 - I actually have non-canon sexual orientation OTPs on this show. Shocker! I adore the idea of bisexual Raven so much and femslash her with Clarke so hard as my main OTP of the show. I also like Raven so much and enjoy her canon ships, really her paired with anybody or in gen. I slash ship Thelonious Jaha/Marcus Kane. :P I would enjoy Abby/Kane or Abby/Jaha fic too but my OTP amongst the adults is Jaha/Kane. I do enjoy Clarke/Anya, Clarke/Lexa, Clarke/Bellamy... Idk. I like Octavia but her paired with Lincoln bore me. I just am not Lincoln's biggest fan, perhaps? Still I'd be excited to hear a Lincoln/Clarke or Lincoln/Raven fic probably lol. Octavia/Clarke could be interesting, or Octavia/Raven, maybe? :P I think my Octavia OTP is Octavia/Jasper. Jasper's canon ships all make me happy and I love Monty too, including Jasper/Monty, although them as just friends is just as good to me. You could also do polyamory for me with this show...
Heroes & Heroes Reborn (and I also know the 6 Heroes Reborn "Dark Matters" webisodes that go along with those) - anything is fine except the incestuous ships. I love the Petrelli brothers as brothers. I like Paire as a friendship. I like how much HRG aka Noah Bennett loves his adopted daughter but just because they're not related by blood do NOT think that means they don't count as incest because um yeah please no. Don't do that to me.
House (also known as House M.D.) - I would rather not hear a podfic about House and Wilson in a sexual or romantic relationship. I adore their friendship SO MUCH, and I also love the whole show and any of the canon ships would be fun to hear a fic about, or Gen?
For all of the following fandoms: I'm not picky. ;) I have my own OTPs but it doesn't matter. Just give me whatever inspires YOU. I don't really have NOTPs in these. I just really want something, ANYTHING, from these fandoms with very very few podfics.
Switched at Birth
Veronica Mars (including the movie too if you want)
Queer as Folk (US Version)
Parenthood (2010 TV series)
Friday Night Lights
Faking It (2014 TV series)
Joan of Arcadia
Blindspot (2015 TV series)
Also my YouTube description includes all the other information about the vid you might be looking for - a transcription of the voiceovers, the song title & artist, etc.
Anyway here it is:
Do you watch fanvideos? Do you perhaps make fanvideos yourself?
If you answered yes to either of these 2 questions, you're in luck!
I've just created a "Vidding Community Comprehensive Census & Habits Survey", with the hopes of starting to get some good statistics from as many corners of vidding fandom as possible. If you're involved in vidding as a viewer, a creator, or a little of both, please try to find time over the next couple of months to take the survey. It should only take about 15 minutes of your time.
Here's the link to the survey: https://survey.insightify.com/1f5-137-
Last day to submit your answers is Sunday, March 8th!! Please take the survey today, though, if you have time - do it before you forget! ;)
These were all of my requested fandoms this time around:
- Being Erica [TV]
- Bob's Burgers [TV]
- Dead Like Me [TV]
- Faking It [TV]
- Nashville US (2012) [TV]
- Pitch Perfect (2012) [Movie]
- Six Feet Under [TV]
- The Flash (2014) [TV]
Being Erica [TV]
I've recently rewatched this entire series and I simply adore it. I ship both Erica/Kai and Erica/Adam. I adore Adam and Kai as characters in their own rights. I adore Dr. Tom too, and the complex character that is Josh... and I think Sam/Lennon are adorable, and I've vidded Dr. Tom&Erica before in a platonic light, and I'd love to see them again, this time vidded by someone other than me. I'd love a cast tribute to the series as a whole, a character study of Erica, or character studies of others, or so many other potential things in this show.
Bob's Burgers [TV]
So I haven't seen THAT many episodes of this show yet, but I have loved every episode that I've seen so far. I find it a simple, sweet, heartwarming family sitcom with a lot of humor, pretty much all of which makes me smile at the very least. My favorite character is Bob himself. If you vid the show, I'd prefer for Bob to be inclu ded in some way in the video. I'd enjoy any vid that encourages me to check out more of the show (and yay to the fact it's on Netflix! So that's an easy thing to do). I'd also enjoy seeing the show captured in either a very lighthearted/fun/silly way OR if you paint a more serious drama using clips the show has to offer. Whatever you want. Make an AU vid if you want, or just a compilation of funny moments, or whatever!! Be creative.
Dead Like Me [TV]
I saw this show years ago and I don't remember it too well but I know so many of the actors from other fandoms of mine... and I know I adored it. I loved everything about it, from what I remember, especially the interesting philosophical take on the nature of life and death, so a vid with voiceovers would probably make me the most happy when it comes to this fandom. I think George and Mason were my two favorite characters. I like everyone, though. Vid whatever you want from this fandom and I'll enjoy it.
Faking It [TV]
I like everything about this show. A typical Karmy vid would be nice, but what I'd probably like better is a more unique/unusal type of vid, meaning a character study of anyone, or an undervidded relationship or love triangle, or something AU, or idk. Just be creative. Even a Karmy vid set to an unusual type of song choice might be fun - I don't mind misgendering lyrics if it means the song is a unique choice that couldn't otherwise be vidded, especially if the rest of the lyrics other than the misgendering ones are perfect. I actually like Liam's character, I don't hate any of the main characters so vid what you want!
Nashville US (2012) [TV]
MusicDon't feel obligated to stick to country for this show! :P Although those vids make me smile, and vids set to songs sung on the show itself make my heart swell with all sorts of amazing emotions... but seriously a Nashville vid set to a rock song or power ballad or hip hop/punk/funk/rap tune or WHATEVER, a Britney Spears song... you know I'd love to see it all, and honestly non-country would be more unique for this fandom and in that sense more fun in a lot of ways!
Oh gosh I have so many feelings and faves on this show. I guess just I'd strongly prefer if you didn't give me a Rayna/Deacon or a Juliette/Avery romance vid. Those two ships are what I've seen vidded the most on this show and they're fine, I like them, but I'd love something different. I'd love a character study of someone, an exploration of Layla/Will or a less popular ship like one of Scarlett's or so many other options... I love platonic themed vid so you could vid any one of the parent/child relationships or many/all of them (I'm talking about how Gunnar just realized he had a son, Juliette/her mom, Scarlett/her mom, Maddie and her 3 parents, Rayna and her parents, etc, etc) or so many other options. I kind of adore Scarlett. And idk. Just do whatev er you're inspired for. If it has to be Rayna/Deacon or Juliette/Avery I'll probably enjoy that too.
Pitch Perfect (2012) [Movie]
Um, Anna Kendrick and Brittany Snow are my babies. Like for real. Because both actresses were in the film, I had to check it out. And it was fun. I like Beca as a main character. I like Chloe as a side character. I totally can femslash ship Beca/Chloe hard but I also don't mind Beca/Jesse, or tributes to the movie as a whole (non-ship-focused vids). This is not one of my favorite fandoms out of those I am requesting, but because we have to request a "SAFETY" I did. ;) And regardless, I of course *would* enjoy seeing it vidded. I would. I adore these two actresses from other things (such as the TV series American Dreams, and the film What to Expect when You're Expecting), and I likePitch Perfect - it reminds me a lot of Glee, which is basically my #1 fandom. So yeah, if you vid this film for me and Beca appears in some capacity, I'd be happy. I'd really enjoy seeing Anna Kendrick set to music. You could make an AU femslash vid using footage of the actresses in outside fandoms too; even Beca/Aubrey would be okay by me even if I prefer Beca/Chloe because of Brittany Snow.
Six Feet Under [TV]
David owns my soul on this show. I love the show as a whole, but honestly my favorite parts of it were ALWAYS David-related. OR Nate-and-his-AVM-brain-condition related. I loved scenes dealing with Nate's mortality, him having to confide in people about his diagnosis, him preparing for risky surgery, and his death. I kind of hated Brenda/Nate but if you vid them in an anti-way I could love the vid. I also grew to like Brenda by the very end of the series. And I really liked the relationship Brenda ended up having with her step-daughter Maya. I loathed Lisa. I adored David/Keith. They're my OTP of the show, a million times over. I also really really loved the brotherly relationship between David & Nate, although I loved all of the sibling dynamics - so David&Claire and Nate&Claire too. I loved Rico/Vanessa, and considered vidding them once upon a time, perhaps with an angsty song given all of their drama and the cheating storyline. But I loved them in a sweet way too. I loved Rico and his complicated relationship with David due to Rico's homophobia and David's homosexuality. I have vidded Claire more than anyone and liked her experimenting with bisexuality/same-sex attraction. I loved Claire/Gabe. I liked all of her storylines, really. But David's my fave. Vid the show as a whole or a shippy David/Keith vid or just a Nate character study or Ruth or Nathaniel Sr. or whoever you want and I'm sure I'll enjoy it. Even a positive Brenda/Nate tribute would be interesting and well-worth watching. :D
The Flash (2014) [TV]
Um... Barry. Poor baby. I love Barry Allen more than words can describe. I love everything about his scenes so far. I love his relationship with both his dad and Joe. (And his dead mother, too, for that matter.) I could see myself shipping him with either Iris or Caitlin, although I also would be happy if both of those relationships remained platonic. Honestly, I'm not too picky. Oh and I like Barry/Felicity too. Because they are lovely. I like Barry & Oliver (The Arrow)'s friendship as well. If you don't want to make a Barry-centric vid, then a character study of Caitlin or Iris might be something I'd enjoy. I always love beautiful female characters... ;) I also actually am growing to love Joe too and a character tribute to him might be nice, especially as I expect him to always remain severely undervidded and underappreciated. Etc. Just some ideas.
If we got matched up because of one pairing but now you realize you'd rather write for another one of mine, that's fine, feel free to switch!
I love simple stories, stories set in the canon world, stories where the characters are still recognizable. I have no triggers, but I am asexual and for me that means erotica/porn just for the sake of being hot doesn't do anything for me. If you want to include a sex scene, go ahead, but try to focus on the emotions of at least one of the characters so that I can appreciate what's going on. And if you want to skip the sex, I'll be happy. Honestly. I spend my time reading a lot of Gen for fun for a reason, and romantic fics that happen to be sex-free can be some of the most enjoyable reads for me as well. :P Please, if I ship a ship that means I don't want any non-consensual stuff or abuse happening between the two of them. But if you want to make an external character hurt them, I'd be okay with that.
I like both fluff and angst. Unrequited love is fine, grief is something I actually love reading about (and you'll notice many of my ships canonically might include one woman/girl grieving another), but also simple happily ever after fics can make me feel all the warm fuzzies inside as well.
I don't usually like kid-fic where the characters are de-aged, especially if in canon they wouldn't have met yet at that time, but writing about canon teenagers or a few months before the show started or something is totally fine. And writing about the future is fine too. You can certainly diverge from canon if you'd like, have an AU where so-and-so never died or where so-and-so had this career path instead... be creative, have fun, and I'll enjoy whatever you write, I'm sure. :D
Also, it's really fun for me if you include other canon characters from the show!! I love fics where the characters in the ship also have their friend(s) or family member(s) show up. Even if it's entirely someone else's point of view! That can be really unique and wonderful to read, especially if you paint this third party (guy or girl, btw, either is fine) as a shipper of the two girls/women.
I am not cool with unchecked biphobia. If a character is biphobic and another character calls them on it, that's fine. The worst thing is if the narrator - if you, the author - writes biphobic (or acephobic) statements. Sexuality is a spectrum, and if you want to write about two lesbians who are both sexually and romantically attracted to only women it's fine. Just don't write something actively offensive to those of us who fall elsewhere on the spectrum, yet might also be interested in women.
I am cool with you writing any of these characters as asexual (and obviously homoromantic or biromantic/panromantic in that case, since this is a romance fic), as lesbians, or as bisexual or pansexual girls/women. Both characters can have the same sexual (or romantic) orientation or obviously any combination works too.
Specifics about my requests.
Teen Wolf: Allison/Kira, Melissa/Claudia, Kira/Malia, Lorraine/Maddy, Victoria/Araya, Talia/Claudia - I also probably would enjoy Lydia/Allison or Lydia/Kira, even though I didn't list them. I didn't want to say I was okay with ALL of the potential Teen Wolf ships, but I kinda was torn between more than just 6 of them, which was the maximum limit if you didn't want to say "Any". So yeah, I actually have 8 potential Teen Wolf ships.
Allison, Kira, and Melissa are my 3 favorite female characters on the show, although I kinda like everyone. I love the craziness of Victoria/Araya and all the creativity that would have to go into writing a ship like them. I would be interested in how Lorraine/Maddy would be pulled off, and it might be really simple but sweet. I think with most of these ships death is involved and a good fic dealing with grief and mourning a romantic love could be written. Etc.
Orphan Black: Alison/Beth, Helena/Grace. I really fell for Grace Johanssen as a character on the farm this season, and reading through the list of nominated ships I realized I'd never considered her and Helena in a femslash ship, but I truly love the idea of them. My romantic OTPs on this show are only the het ship Cal/Sarah (LumberPunk) and the f/f Alison/Beth (SoccerCop), but if you wrote me a compelling Helena/Grace fic I might be able to add a 3rd OTP to that list. As for Alison/Beth... just run wild with this ship, in whatever way your heart desires. I love them so much. I love each character individually, I love that Beth is such a blank slate, and I love that Alison seemed like the only person to care when Beth died. I love how much potential this ship has and I also really like characters like Art, Donnie, Felix, Sarah, and Cosima and how these characters might react to the idea of Alison/Beth. (My favorite headcanon includes an Ace Beth. But any incarnation of them is great)
Arrow: Laurel Lance/Thea Queen, Helena Bertinelli/Sara Lance, Sara Lance/Felicity Smoak, Sara Lance/Shado, Thea/Sin, Nysssa/Thea. I love that in canon Sara is interested in women. But I've never seen much appeal to Nyssa as a character. That being said, since Thea left with Malcolm at the end of season 2, I could see Nyssa and Thea ending up as a potentially VERY interesting dynamic.
Any of these 6 ships would be quite compelling to me. I've never actually read any femslash for Arrow before, but I haven't read much Arrow fic period. I still adore the show and have actually vidded it quite a bit (I'm a fanvideo editor).
Thea and Sara are my favorite characters on the show. I also find Laurel, Helena, Felicity, Shado, and Sin compelling and please feel free to write something that explores the potential these characters have with each other. For Thea/Laurel, it'd probably make sense to wait till Thea is over 18 so there's no underage complicated stuff, but if you wanted Thea to start having feelings for Laurel during that period of time when she knew about Tommy/Laurel and they both thought Sara and Ollie were dead, I'd be thrilled to read that kind of longing and jealousy. For Sara/Shado, I see some stuff going down while they were still on the island before Shado's death. Or maybe Sara does something crazy to save Shado's life in that instance...? Helena and Sara have a lot in common and would be interesting to explore, since they're both so dark, but they probably could both teach each other things and they have very different families. Etc. Idk.
Glee: Santana/Quinn. (And I would've listed Brittany/Santana, but I guess they weren't allowed this year?) I especially love the headcanon that Santana and Quinn are both bisexual, but with caveats: maybe Santana is only homoromantic and can't fall in love with guys even if she can get sexual pleasure from them, and Quinn might be heteroromantic so the only way a relationship with Santana would work for Quinn is if it's friends-with-benefits, if it's non-romantic but still sexual. I also see the potential for demiromanticsm in either girl, or even demisexuality. However, if you just want to make both lesbians who never were actually attracted to/in love with guys, or both simply bisexual, or one bisexual and one a lesbian, I'd be cool with any of the possibilities. I adore both Santana and Quinn as characters, and I would enjoy seeing where you took a potential fic with them as the main ship. Both girls have a lot in common but their differences are really fun too. I actually ship Quinn/Puck as my OTP and have a soft spot for Quinn's other het ships too. So while that's not common to include as a side-mentioned ship in femslash fanfiction, I'd really get a kick out of seeing that. I'd strongly prefer that Rachel remain straight if she's gonna be in the fic. Idk why but I never could get into lesbian or bisexual Rachel and I'd rather Quinn or Santana not have a history with Rachel or anything like that. Rachel doesn't need to appear but again that's just my POV. I love the idea of Quinn/Santana as a ship, though.
Faking It: I really like the idea that Karma will never return Amy's feelings (maybe I'm a sadist, lol, idk), not in the way Amy needs her to. Jasmine was such a cool girl in the one scene we saw her in, lol, and I think they might be a match made in heaven! If you wrote it just right. After all, Shane thought no one would like Amy's online dating profile but Jasmine did like what she saw immediately. :P Honestly, though, any Amy-centric fic that focused on her would make me happy, original character or Jasmine would just be even better. (My headcanon is that Amy is demisexual (see the link above) but you can just make her a lesbian or bisexual if you'd prefer.)
The Fosters: I don't have any brilliant thoughts on Lena/Stef other than the fact that I like the kids on the show a lot and I like the idea of them bonding over a plot that has to do with one or more of the kids. I also am not opposed to the idea of a bisexual Stef who fell for Lena rather than someone who was a repressed lesbian all along. :P Just some potential food for thought.
