New Vid: Battlefield (BBC!Sherlock)

Song by Susie Suh
Video by Fabella
Sherlock (BBC) 1&2.
John: beside Sherlock. John: alone. Who is he? More importantly, *why* is he? Series 1&2 spoilers. Sherlock+John, John, Sherlock.

This video has been in process since the second series first played, but I couldn't nail it down until the boyfriend gave in and watched it with me. After watching the whole series over the span of a few nights, I sat down determined to pull the strings of this video together and release it into the wild, because it was a shame to see such a loved video sitting so close to complete for so long. It is a video that I cannot exactly qualify as slash or romantic, but I wouldn't come close to saying it isn't either---they just have that type of relationship, don't they? So I will say, it examines them as they are (how I see them), so take that how you wish. I don't expect a lot of people to still be watching vids from me, as I do not participate in fandom anymore, but if I'm wrong, I'd love to hear about it. Naturally, I'm still a fiend for feedback.

Two years in the making, huh? Hopefully you like it. If not, *face/palm*.

eta: obsessive24 has already posted a great video to this song. Hivemind, yes? *face/palm* *face/palm* Either way, check it out!

New Vid: Relax, My Beloved (Dexter)

Believe it or not, I have made a vid. It's been so long that I am wiping the cobwebs off this journal to share it for the straggling few who might still be interested (if you exist).

Relax, My Beloved.
Song by Alex Clare
Video by Fabella
Dexter (S1-8).
"... don't turn your back on me." Dexter/Debra, divided.
Warnings: Beware some fast cutting, violence, pseudo-incestous tones (between adopted siblings), and spoilers for the first episode of season 8.

Watch @ youtube, or download @ 4shared.

So, yes. It's a vid! I have so many *nearly* finished videos sitting on my computer, I'm not positive why this one made the cut when so few have recently or if such a thing will ever happen again, but it feels so good to be writing this post. I lost the majority of my vids due to a series of personal tragedies, so that might have made my vidder instincts rebel. Maybe this will incite me to finish the nearly there vids, because I know it is still possible! Or not! All bases covered, and no promises made, fingers crossed!

This is a song that I fell in love with through its video first, as sometimes happens with me. I've been vidding Dexter in my head for so long that it felt like a natural fit when I discovered it. Season 8 just put it into place for good. I'd vidnote this thing, but it truly just fell out of me at a dead run, like the vidder within could not be contained, so I can only say that I walked a very narrow path in creating it---its purpose is not to tell the story of Dexter, the series, but Dexter, the character, and the importance of Debra Morgan to the sympathy we feel for his character.

Thoughts and feedback are heartily welcomed.

Hello, fandom.

It has been a very long time. The longest to date, I believe. I have undergone an extreme transitional period in my life where fandom/fannishness took a true backseat for the first time since the age of thirteen. I shut myself out of the "fabella" role completely, I don't regret it since it gave me so much room to make decisions, but now that things are comfortable again, I might be able to re-establish old connections (I have new phone numbers, new e-mail, etc, etc.). I plan to start vidding again, but I'm easing back in. I've missed vidding quite a bit, but I'm glad that I was away from it for a while. Career is well, I've fallen in love with the most interesting, beautiful man, and family drama is starting lessen. There are some plans that fell by the wayside again, and dreams of moving out of this boring little rut of a town are put on hold, but all in all, I am ridic!happy!

So... how are you?

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.
