Dear Equinox vidder!

Hi! Thank you for making something for me!

I’m fond of songs with female vocalists, I like fast paced vids, and quick cuts. I also have a weakness for awesome women and femslash.

Below is some of what I like about the sources and some ideas/suggestions:


Alien: Isolation (Game)

Tags: Amanda Ripley

Summary: I love this game (even if it is stressful to play). I would really like an Amanda-centric vid.


The Fifth Element (1997) [safety]

Tags: Leeloo

Summary: This is a really fun movie! I would love a vid the focuses primarily on Leeloo.


Gravity (2013) [safety]

Tags: Ryan Stone

Summary: I really liked this movie, even if it was really stressful to watch. I would like something that focuses on Dr. Ryan.


Star Trek: Alternate Original Series (Movies) 

Tags: Nyota Uhura, Jaylah (Star Trek)

Summary: I would love an Uhura or Jaylah-centric vid (or one about both of them)


Star Trek: The Animated Series

Summary: An Uhura-centric vid would be lovely!


Stargate SG-1

Tags: Samantha “Sam” Carter, Vala Mal Doran, Samantha “Sam” Carter/Vala Mal Doran

Summary: I love Sam and Vala is one of the reasons I’m really fond of seasons 9 and 10 of SG-1. I would love a Sam/Vala vid.

Festivids 2016!

I love the vid and vidlet I got for Festivids!

Bound (1996)
“Crash” by Gwen Stefani
Do me real hard.

I ADORE this! It’s 36 seconds of sexiness and awesome - I love the focus on hands and the intercutting! The bookends of the truck made me laugh (and really fitting, given the song choice).


state of war
Haywire (2011)
“Kill V. Maim” by Grimes
You gave up being good when you declared a state of war

This is awesome! It really captures the essence of the movie and its kickass action. I love the editing (especially the faceless sequence at the start, 0:25-0:31, 1:10-1:11, the beat at 1:25, the intercut sequence from 1:37-1:54, 1:58-2:00, and 3:39-4:00)


And the person I was assigned to likes what I made, yay! (I’m still trying to guess who made what)

Dear Festividder!

Hi! Thank you for making something for me! I’ve only been vidding since January and this is the first Festivids I’m participating in, which is exciting (and also a little nerve-wracking).

I’m fond of songs with female vocalists, I like fast paced vids, and quick cuts. I also have a weakness for awesome women and femslash. Below is some of what I like about the sources and some ideas/suggestions:

A Small Update of Sorts

I'm excited about festivids! ...I have also kinda started watching NCIS: New Orleans for Agent Gregorio.
On an unrelated note, I'm kinda annoyed when reviews of The Handmaiden don't mention that it's an adaptation of Sarah Water's Fingersmith

…maybe it’s just me, but Beyond reminds me, structurally (and thematically a bit), of Wrath of Khan

some thoughts on Star Trek (TOS and AOS)

I just finished watching TMP (I’d seen parts of it before, but not all the way though) ...Kirk and Spock’s interactions really don’t make sense unless you assume they’d had a messy/awkward breakup some point before Spock returned to Vulcan

Some somewhat spoilery thoughts on TMP and Beyond below:

Vividcon and vidding

The Vividcon DVD (and the con program) came in the mail today! I wish I could've gone, but considering the (condensed) grad school class I'm taking at the moment, buying a supporting registration worked out the best, logistically speaking. Also, I'm still working on the 'Apres Moi' remaster (classes have gotten in the way a bit)

some (brief) reactions to Vividcon 2016 (in which I use the words 'awesome' and 'love' a lot):

Comics and Other Stuff

Got stuff from library book sale today!

A copy of ‘Crimson Peak’ (it might be useful for vidding at some point, disc had next to no scratches), ‘Maleficent’ (I’d been meaning to see it, and it looked like the disc would probably play), and two issues of She-Hulk (#1 and #12, since that’s what I saw).
