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.

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.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHEFlf3cUvE
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.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKAGjrZvWNc
