+ Due to the acknowledgement that I've been making more and more of my entries f-locked, I realized that this is probably because I don't want the outside world to know about my personal life. To counter the belief that I don't update my LJ, I decided to make it known to the world that I do indeed use my LJ, but it may not be visible to all.

+ If  you would like to be added as a friend, just comment on this entry with the reason why you would like to be added. I may write up a little bio for myself in my profile, but until then, you're going to have to guess who I am and my interests by my open-to-all entries. DO NOT FEEL INTIMIDATED IN ASKING TO BE ADDED ON AS A FRIEND; we'd really have to have nothing in common for me to reject you. :D

+ Any occasional vids, fics, and art I may create and complete will remain open for all to see. 

+ I have deleted a few people from my flist because A) their journals are dead or B) I feel like we don't have any shared interests anymore and we just don't communicate. Feel free to delete me from your own flist; I will not be offended or take it personally. If you feel like I've made a mistake in deleting you from my flist, please speak up here and I will re-evaluate the situation. ;)

SECOND REQUEST! PLEASE HELP.

I need a vid beta for my festivids submission. The vid is all ready and I'm looking for a technical beta more than anything else.
(However, if you know the fandom, I'd more than happy accept constructive crit on scene selections too.)

Any volunteers. I'd really appreciate it! (The vid is about 3 minutes long, fyi.)

Thanks in advance.

Oh man. I'm having a really rough time. I cried this morning at work in front my coworkers because I was thinking about what happened yesterday with my boyfriend. (Luckily I pulled myself together before the kids arrived.)

Then all day I was mulling over clues about why he's going to break up with me (he's avoiding talking about spending coming holidays with me, not initiating the "I love you"s anymore (he always did), he hasn't texted me tonight, even after I texted him, asking about his day, and then asking if everything's all right.) He texted me a little this morning, which is a good sign, I guess, but being me, I can't see the optimitism.

It's all so little and minute, but my anxiety can't stop making me think it. I randomly started crying on the train ride home. I think about the times he used to meet me at work. In my mind, I've already lost him. I don't know why it pains me so much to think about. Fucking hell, I love him and he honestly became my best friend and it fucking hurts to think about him not around anymore. I'm in tears NOW, damn it.

I can't concentrate on anything. I have unsettling dreams at night. I feel like I'm on a teen drama and it'd be laughable if the feeling wasn't so real.

I scheduled an appointment with a random psychologist tomorrow night. I hope they can help. I really feel so helpless. I don't know what to do. I just want to feel okay. I know that is what he wants for me too, but this uncertainty is making things unbearable.

It doesn't help that parents are coming in to observe the class Thursday morning.

Can someone please give me some advice on how not to have a total breakdown every day? Please...

ETA: He just texted and said his phone was dead since 5 pm. I spent a good 2.5 hours stressing over this. I need help. I need a lot of help. I can't go on feeling like this...

Another year is here and I'm excited for this year's festivids!

Here is my wishlist of sorts.

1. Coupling (UK) - So I used to LOVE LOVE LOVE this show when I was younger. My friend first introduced to me and we were in hysterics. Then I got my brothers hooked. It brings me happy thoughts. I'd love a vid highlighting some of the silliness and craziness of the show. Seasons (Series, rather) 1 to 3 are my favorite because of Jeff's inclusion and Oliver's exclusion, but I wouldn't mind a few select scenes from S4 if necessary. I also think the song Dropped by Phantom Planet makes for a great silly song!

2. Dead Like Me - I can never, ever get enough vids for this show. Mason is my favorite character, but I also adore absolutely everyone else (and I really do mean that.) Any character studies would be awesome! But so would an ensemble. Basically anything but a shipper George/Mason vid (sorry, I liked Mason/Daisy.)

3. The Fall - this is an astounding movie that will give me FEELS FOREVER. I just love the relationship between Roy and Alexandria and the scenery and cinematography is just gorgeous. I'll love anything with this.

4. The Hollow Crown - I'll admit. I only started watching this for Tom Hiddleston, but I found myself enjoying the story and relationships behind that. I haven't yet watching Henry V (though I definitely will before vids go live). I'd love a vid focusing on Prince Hal and his evolution, but a general overview of the series would be good too.

5. Sleepy Hollow (TV; 2013) - Okay, THIS IS SUCH AN OBSESSION LATELY. I absolutely love this show and its characters so far. I love Ichabod and Abbie's partnership (and just Ichabod and his sass, in general, okay!), I love the supernatural elements, I love the suspense. The 3-week hiatus will kill me. So I'll take ANYTHING with this show. I want it badly. :)

6. Wonderfalls - I haven't rewatched this in years, but I should, because it was so cute! Bryan Fuller is pretty much a TV god. Like DLM, I loved all these characters and ships. I really enjoyed Jaye though and I think The Bird Song by Florence and the Machine would be a good choice to show the interaction between her and the Muses and how they slowly drove her to comical insanity.

7. Much Ado About Nothing (2012) - I really loved this movie for two reasons: (1) the comedy; (2) the main couple and me pretending that Fred and Wesley got their happy ending.

8. The Princess Bride - Such a cute and endearing movie. Anything will do.

Thank you in advance.

Truly,
your fellow vidder in arms,
Maria

Just wanted to wish everyone who celebrates a very Merry Christmas!!! I hope you have a great time spending it with your loved ones.

Anyway, I wish you all my best! Warm hugs! ♥

The Rules

The RulesCollapse )

MY 2012 WISHLIST


01. FIC: The Fall | Roy & Alexandria – prompt: birthday

02. VID/FIC: Supernatural/Avengers | I want this crossover soooo badly! In any form I can get it. (Examples: Loki/Sam & Supervengers)

03. VID: Captain America/Avengers | I want a Steve character study. Because Steve Rogers FEELS are some intense FEELS and I just want it, okay. Also, there are loads of songs that deal with soldiers/war that might work for him. (Examples: Sorrow & The War was in Color).
→ 03(a). FIC: I’m noticing that there’s a lot of vid requests. So here’s a bit of a twist. If you can’t vid a Steve Rogers character study, can I get a fic where Steve and Angel (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel) meet. I just feel like they have a very similar personality.

04. VID: Dead Like Me/ Pushing Daisies/Wonderfalls (1 or all) | Character Studies or Ensemble vids preferable, but Ship vids are good too (so long as it’s not Ned/Olive or George/Mason; platonically, I love them.)

05. VID: Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz/Run Fatboy Run/Paul (1 or all) | I miss watching vids for Simon Pegg movies, especially since those films are so amazing. So make me a vid with one or all of the above.

06. VID: Psych | Shawn/Juliet fluff vid, using an upbeat and adorable song

07. VID: Psych | Ensemble - fun times.

08. VID: Supernatural | Castiel character study, using "Dustbowl Dance" by Mumford and Sons

09. VID: The Vampire Diaries | Damon/Katherine, using "Broken Promises for Broken Hearts" by She Wants Revenge

10. REC: Make me laugh, make me cry, make me think with some of your favorite songs, shows, clips, whatever.

11. *BONUS: Anything you would like to give me. Fanart, fanmix, icons, another kind of fic or vid, feedback on some of my fanwork, a cutesy little thing, whatever. I ain't picky. But, y'know, 'tis the season and all that. :)

Remember the days when I used to be compelled to make random picspams and just post them on LJ? Yeah. Those were a while back, huh! Well, another compulsion came over me and I picspammed away, but the result went on Tumblr. Not everyone has a Tumblr, so I figured I should share the glorious sexiness here as well. Enjoy the henceforth picspam, fellow Anglophiles! :D

A list ... dedicated to the ladies and gentlemen hailing from Britain that have ruined my life at one point or another...

If you would like to have these picspams on your Tumblr, please click on the link below for the masterpost.


Please, I welcome you to engage in FEELS and SQUEES talk in the comments if you'd like. ;)

Dear Festividder:

As far music is concerned, I will pretty much listen to anything from instrumental to 80s rock to alternative. Some of my favorite musicians include Mumford and Sons, Muse, Florence and the Machine, Astronautalis, and I'm really getting into Marina and the Diamonds. But really, I'm quite random and eclectic. I don't normally listen to rap, hiphop, or pop, but if the song suits your video, by all means, go for it!

And What I'm Requesting:

Coupling UK [TV]: using the song: "Dropped" by Phantom Planet
I just used to LOVE this show and it’d be great to see a fun ensemble fanvid for it. I was particularly enamored with Series 1 through 3 (aka, when Jeff was around), but I don’t mind footage from Series 4 as long as it doesn’t focus much on Oliver.

Dead Like Me [TV]
I’m still in love with show even after all these years. I really enjoyed Mason/Daisy relationship on the show, but I will take almost anything with this show. Mason character study. George character study. Daisy, Rube, Roxy character study. Ensemble. You get the point. I don't care. I’ll be satisfied with anything as long as it's not a romantic Mason/George vid.

Wonderfalls [TV]: using "The Bird Song" by Florence and the Machine
Like Dead Like Me, I’ll take whatever, but I always thought the song above would work well in describing how Jaye is guilted into doing so many things all because of the muses.

The Fall (2006) [Movie]
Surprise me. I love this movie. I’m sure anything will be wonderful.

The Princess Bride [Movie]
Same as ‘The Fall.’

Raising Hope [TV]
Something that’s really cute and highlights all the hilariously adorable moments of the show would be great. I’m particularly interested in seeing the dynamic among the Chance family and how they’re always there for one another.

Shaun of the Dead [Movie]
Serious, scary, or funny, I don’t care. Heck, it can be all three.

Hot Fuzz [Movie]
Something bromantic would be wonderful, but not necessary.


Can’t wait for Festivids to get started! YAY!

Thank you in advance!

snagged from crickets

Just so you all know, fandoms include (in no particular order): SPN, The Avengers (only specific characters, some from the previous movies), BtVS (AtS), Dead Like Me, Pushing Daisies, Psych. Also, the writing may romantic or platonic.

I've got a list of 10 of my favorite pairings. All you need to do is give me a number (1-10) and something for them to do, like washing dishes or fighting crime, and I'll write a snippet/ficlet (sentence or drabble, most likely) and explain how the task would go for that pairing and universe.

"BLUE VEINS" DECONSTRUCTION: A FANVID COMMENTARY

Let me begin by saying I've never done anything like this before. It was a wild ride. And I put too much effort into it. (I always do. What's wrong with me?! LOL.) → I place 75% blame on ETV for the encouragement to do this, though. :D
