I recently took a survey about fan vidding and it reminded me how long it has been since I vidded. I didn't even know how to find all of my vids!
So I decided to make a master list.

I like slow, relatively long character stories.
Not most people's cup of tea, but I enjoy them, and in the end I suppose that's what matters most.

Here there are. I have no idea how both of these ended up being exactly four minutes thirteen seconds long.

John, My Beloved

Music: Sufjan Stevens
Vid: Saturdaygirl2012
Summary: When Sherlock met John, he had no idea the effect that it would have on his life.

It's been years since my last vid. I even wrote a blog about it. Don't know how long it will stay up. Hope you like it.

Everyone in the Sherlock Fandom had to take a breath just to soak in the data from two new episodes after two years of waiting. Now the new works are starting to come out. Here are some videos based on Season 3 of Sherlock.

Stag Night by FelixFelicius

Liisakee is a vidder who is an expert at theme.
This video explores the darker side of the doctor. Those times when he had to make life and death choices with his companion's lives. Liisakee has a way of pulling the emotion out of you by showing you these scenes which resonate and just grab your heart. Watch and see.

[Apparently I copied the entire playlist. Oh well, I love them all! - Enjoy]

Vidding mostly involves making music videos of fan shows. Some are just illustrations of fan works, and some have themes or explore character. Some even change the stories or characters to new alternate forms, but I find some of the most interesting works are when someone uses video clips to tell a story that is new.

Exile Vilify by felixfelicius was one such story.
It told of John's sadness after the fall and how Sherlock was in town trying not to be seen while still watching over John.

Well, the second part recently came out , so I've posted it here.

Fandom is a form of communication and not simply imitation. Yes the elements come from the show, but the ideas and the actions are creating something new.

Day 10

In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing. It can be a detailed, thoughtful analysis, or a squeeful, joyful post. Or maybe a combination of the two. Make a recs list, link to their archives or master lists or websites, maybe create a Fanlore page for them. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

At first I didn't know who to pick and then I realized it. I would talk about my favorite Fan Video Authors. I have three.



Sherlock + John - ♪ 'Arrival of the Birds'by Amy Kinley
I can't tell you exactly what enchants me about this work. Maybe it's the calmness of the music. Maybe it's the flow of the images with fade into each other beautifully, I don't know. All that I know is that when it is on, I can't keep my eyes off of it.

The video has a poigniant, dreamlike quality that is very affecting. It illustrates the friendship between Sherlock and John without being too overt. I find it touching.

It's hard for video authors now. The copyright Nazis are everywhere and my favorite videos keep getting taken down. The first link, I think, is a repost and the video quality was lower than it was when I first saw it. Then again, it might be my browser. Just in case, I found another copy of this work on another site, and it has higher resolution. Take a look.

Tudou (Higher res)

Two other works by her are

A powerful, innovative vid about Sherlock's relationship with Moriarty.


God Only Knows
A Sherlock and John vid that floored me with it's amazing use of video montage.

She is a fan video author, and I eat up everything that she makes. She has a way to piece together images and music that not only tells a story but also hits you right in the gut. I love her work.

Two of her works that show her awesomeness are

Who are you, really? | Doctor Who
A great introduction to the doctor.


my absolute favorite Dr Who video.
It's so fun and upbeat, I can't help but smile.

I only recently found this prolific vidder. If there is one word that sums up her work, it is THEME. She makes videos that focus on specific areas of a series using examples from many different episodes to show the consistency and the depth of the story.

Let her Go | Doctor & Companions(Doctor Who)

This is about how the doctor must always say goodbye to his companions in the end.

Would You Kill to Save A Life? // The Doctor

This one is about the hard choices that the doctor has had to make when he had to chose who would live and who would die.
