I'm putting together a vividcon vidshow for Unreliable Narrators and I would love some recs. I have most of the vidshow complete, but I like to widen my net. Any fandom, any source, any audio, and style, anything. Self-recs encouraged as well.

Unreliable Narrators
Vidshow Summary: There's an assumption that the person telling you a story is telling the truth, these vids explore the idea of unreliable narrators. Reasons for their unreliability include naivete, withheld information, mental illness, personal bias, mind altering substances, deliberate misleading of the audience, exaggeration, and whatever the hell was happening in Sucker Punch.

Made For Me
Human (The Keeping Room) - Absolutely beautifully made vid for my favorite movie of 2016. I don't know if the vidder knows me and how much I love audio source usage, but I am damn delighted with it. The song choice has a slow, languid nature that fits so well with the editing and the movie. The vid explores the interesting relationship dynamics while also incorporating the greater dynamics.

Take Me to Church (Mother, May I Sleep with Danger? - 2016) - I want a Take Me to Church cover vid made for me for every femslash couple! And I want a lesbian vampire movie vid every festivids. Excellent inclusion of everything I love about the movie, like the Shakespeare and ALL OF THE HOT LESBIAN SEX IN CEMETARY GOD BLESS LIFETIME FOR GOING HARD AND THIS VIDDER FOR PUTTING IN ALLLLL THE SEX. And it's romantic as fuck. Also, fuck Bob. The end.

I'm working on some projects and I realized I didn't have a good understanding on what parts there are to the vidding process. Obviously every vidder has their own process, but I wanted to try and put a list together with all the different aspects. I asked on twitter last night and got a lot of great answers and wanted to ask here as well. Please let me know if there are possible aspects of vidding to add or elaborate on.

Vidding Process Terms (incomplete and perhaps needs reordered)
*With thanks to anoel, cherry, par, shati, sol_se, ghost_lingering, grammarwoman, frayadjacent, sasha_feather, amnisias, anyone I am forgetting*

Ideation and concept formation
Rewatching source
Planning (storyboarding, outlining, notetaking, in timeline notes, song lyric notes, etc.)
Researching (googling, listening to podcasts, reading meta/analysis, etc.)
Converting files
Clipping
Audio (finding and/or listening)
Editing (and creating)
Socializing and/or seeking validation
Beta-ing
Revising
Credit-making
Technical tinkering
Rendering or exporting
Formatting release (writing posts, adding links, subtitling, and/or writing meta, etc.)
Uploading
Posting and crossposting (as well as editing everything to link together and replying to comments)

No Source, No Problem
unfinishedidea's Bloody Shirt (Welcome to Night Vale) - Excellent melding of sources and the clip selection across an endless amount of possibility is fantastic.
MissLane's Meet Me Halfway | SwanQueen | HunnyFresh Fanfic (a Once Upon A Time fanfic) - I love lesbian romance trailers.
Heather Jensen (squidwithelbows)'s In Dreams (The Raven Cycle) - OMG, this is truly amazing and creative and beautiful. It's an amazing animated art.
harrypfanmcc's Deshi Basara (Red Rising) - Very cool. Love the coloring and way it looks like one cohesive source.
CarolynOnUTube's Grisha Trilogy || DarklingxAlina (The Grisha Trilogy) - Beautiful choices of source to create such a rich and lush world within a short time frame.
hydrazoite's L I T T L E. T I T A N. CA F É. [Eren/Levi] (an Attack on Titan fic) - Cool titles and use of text. So sweet.
dayln's A Brief History of Montmaray (The Montmaray Journals) - Gorgeous landscapes and excellent fancastings.
fakescottishaccent's the marauders │ darkness (Harry Potter) - Great audio editing as well as video editing. I adore these fancastings. I believe every single second of this.
thatfangirl's When Brakes Get Wet (Code Name Verity) - Lovely and amazing.
Rinoa's Cinder: The Lunar Chronicles || The Future Will Destroy You (FAN-BOOK TRAILER) (The Lunar Chronicles) - Cool as fuck.
bironic's "Ancillary Justice" book trailer (Imperial Radch trilogy) - So awesome.

Keys to the Kingdom
Cherry's Unsteady Ground (Merlin) - Brilliant song choice and I love this editing and this vid still gets me years later.
stardust rain's after the day's work is done (Marvel Cinematic Universe) - Exceedingly nice to see rarely used clips like this and I really like the editing and focus on Nick in clips that I've seen in other vids in different contexts.
sweetestdrain's Empty Nest (Kings) - So good with epic structure. Makes me want to rewatch the show.

Better Living Through Dystopia
obsessive24's Candyman (Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory) - Still one of the cutest vids I've ever seen. So adorable. jk, I wanna get really high and watch this on repeat for an hour.
jarrow's Wretches and Kings (Battlestar: Galactica) - Very well conceived and construted. It's hard hitting and doesn't pull any visual or narrative punches. I love the harsh edges of the vid from the music and the editing. The on beat editing is a thrill with the sound matching reverses.

Express Yourself
GhostTownExit's Rock 'n' Roll (Henry & June) - I love everything about this vid.
chaila's Manchester (Bunheads) - So sweet and quiet and bittersweet too.

Welcome to Vividcon
Killa's These Two Arms (Xena: The Warrior Princess) - There's a special place in my heart for fix-it vids and this is an excellent example of what vids can do. The relationship is so beautifully considered and their dynamic is displayed so well. It's making me want to go back and watch the series again. I'd watched this vid at home for a project, but seeing it on a large screen with an audience was amazing. The pacing and dissolves kill me.
here's luck's New Frontier (Firefly: Serenity) - I remember watching this vid ten years ago and I still dig it. Still love that "volunteer" moment that sets up Mal so quickly and that gun raise on "hey."

Auction
ghost lingering's Children of the Revolution (Persepolis) - I think this captures the fierce heart of the movie and the character.
elipie's Spirits (Gotham) - I'm going to have to start watching this dumpster fire again because it looks like it's embraced it's wackiness more in a fun way. I like how the vid teeters on the edge. It takes what the show is silly and campy about and looks at it more seriously.
Franzeska's Byzantium (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) - I had a blast watching this. Great song and great visual parallel use with witty lyrical interpretations.

Wish You Were Here
Llin's Touch the Sky (multifandom) - This fills my heart with joy.
AurumCalendula's Ain't No Grave (redux) (Person of Interest) - Excellent character study of Shaw with a song choice I was really sold on with the great lyrical interpretations, like "promised land" and good use of visual parallels, like panning over from Shaw shooting someone.
frayadjacent's Freedom (Underground) - Fuck. Yes. Beautiful set up of the characters and I really love how the quieter bits within the song were edited too. Excellent vid for an amazing show.
kaydeefalls's Wildest Dreams (multifandom) - Wow, amazing concept and really expertly put together. The establishing sources are used well and others are brought in at just the right point in the vid.
sanguinity's Something Good (Will Come From That) (all the Sherlock Holmes adaptations) - Sweet vid with neat visual connections that makes it's own adaptation.
eruthros and thingswithwings's Dance Apocalyptic (multifandom) - Sheer joy and love for this vid, especially the fantastic range and detailed bits pulled from so many sources.

I love watching all of the festivids on the first day in alphabetical order. I'm doing my recs differently. I thought putting them into categories would be more meaningful than making one list of what I liked. I thought this year had some really amazing vids and overall I thought the collection was strong too. I loved all the vids people made for me and I get emotional thinking about people putting time and effort into a vid for me.

MINE, MINE, MINE

Least Favorite Life (Byzantium) - I'm so happy someone used my oddly specific song request for a vaguely feminist vampire movie. The time periods are well mixed. Excellent use of the movie on tv within the movie. The ending is perfection too.

Cake to Bake (Great British Bake Off) - I actually got misty and cried a little when watched. I can't believe someone actually made me a GBBO vid. And it's good and I love it! The song is amazing and the editing captures so many great moments from the show. The pacing and structure is so delicately constructed. Very smart editing choices to illustrate the mechanics of the source.

Bitch Puddin's Fuckin' Theme Song (Robot Chicken) - I FUCKING LOVE THIS VID FOREVER. THERE ARE SO MANY GOOD BITS AND IT'S REALLY AMAZING THAT IT'S SO GOOD BECAUSE THE SOURCE IS VERY LIMITED AND NOT COHESIVE SO THE VIDDER IS VERY TALENTED AND I HOPE THAT I'M FRIENDS WITH THEM ALREADY. I DOUBT THAT ANYONE BUT SOMEONE WHO IS ALREADY MY FRIEND WOULD GO THROUGH THE EFFORT OF MAKING IT. I SERIOUSLY LOVE THEM. STRANGER OR NOT. THEY'RE MY NEW FAVORITE TAMPON POPSICLE FUCKFACE.


really excellent quick paced and/or skilled editing
Motivational Speaker (Edge of Tomorrow)
Blow (Gone Girl)
Black Out Days (A Streetcar Named Desire (2014))

cute, fun, happy
What a way to make a living (Black Books)
Still Alive (Black Sails)

All In Together (Great British Bake Off)
C'mon (Inside Out)
Alive (Pitch Perfect series)
You're My Best Friend (RPF - Ian McKellan/Patrick Stewart)

interesting, original, awesome
Bayou (Bayou)
Here It Goes Again (Chopped)
Show Me Your Teeth (Hieronymus Bosch)
A Forest (Limbo)
Colors (Mr. Robot)
Something I Should Know (Mr. Robot)
Your Mother (Saga)

The Bullpen (The Hazards of Helen)
Skyfall (Jupiter Ascending)
Commander Badass (The Martian)

Festivids - Black Widow (Practical Magic) - You should've known better than to mess with me, honey.
Festivids - Love is Blue (Life After Beth) - Boy and girl fall in love. Girl dies. What now?
Vividcon Premiere - Cut Like A Buffalo (Empire) - COOKIE.
Vividcon Challenge - Sour Cherry (The Losers) - They're fun criminals!

Total of 4 vids. The least amount of vids I've released online since I started vidding. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I started a lot of vids I didn't finish and I preferred naps & Netflix over vidding this year.

My favorite video this year (of my own)
No contest, Cut Like A Buffalo because of COOKIE. I loved planning it out, I loved editing it, everything.

Least favorite
I guess Sour Cherry only by process of elimination. I had a lot of fun making it though because I put an old abandoned vid on my timeline, copy & pasted in bits, and filled it in with text. It's only my least favorite because I like the other ones more. I'm quite proud that I thought to submit a vid that isn't really a vid at all. Like, be jealous that I thought of putting forth the least amount of effort for the most amount of return. People in the vidshow laughed way more than I thought they would. I was worried the text would be too slow, but I knew I had to account for the con setting.

Most successful
I would have to say Cut Like A Buffalo because it worked for people the way I wanted it to work. I thought the people that already love Cookie would get to see her being awesome and the people that don't know her would be interested in watching the show. I'm also pleased that no one mentioned the massive amount of reframing I did. I changed the frame on practically every clip of Cookie to make her the center focus of the frame and changed the frame to edit out men's faces and push them to the edge of the frame. So very successful for me that it's for the most part invisible to a viewer.

Video most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion
I guess Love is Blue because it's a weird little vid where a guy tries to have sex with his dead girlfriend's scarf, then she's is a zombie that has her sexual coming of age postmortem.

Video with single sexiest moment
Hmmm, I want to say the Anika and Cookie section of Cut Like A Buffalo because I cannot vid female rivarly without it becoming femslash. It's not possible. I'm not complaining though. I love it that way, but I have to say it's the section in Cut Like A Buffalo from 2:10-2:32 because it's Cookie seeing what she wants, getting it, and moving on from it. She's the one leaning in to kiss that hotass younger man, she's the one spreading her legs open, she's the one undressing him, she's the one throwing her arms out, and she's the one on top. I also think the section with Lucious is sexy too, but that relationship has too much history and issues for me to find it the sexiest part.

Biggest vid fail
I suppose there's parts of Love is Blue that I don't love. I made it to have fun and in hindsight it could be better.

Hardest video to make
Black Widow because I was plagued with technical difficulties and I was worried the recipient wouldn't like it. It filled the request, but I needed the journey in order to get to heart of vid and their sisterhood.

Most unintentionally *telling* video
Black Widow because there was a span of time where I wanted to be a witch in the 90s and so much of my fashion was inspired by that.

Things I've learned
nOtHiNg. I never learn anything, lol. I learned some new programs and ways to convert files. Learned some new journal techniques to use for vidding notes.

Things to work on
I want to keep working on exporting properly. I'm certainly better at ending up with a high quality file than I once was.

I'm continuing from previous years with "I want to try vidding female characters that do more than beat people up and make things explode while being pretty."

From last year, I still haven't made a vid where I intentionally vid for an audience, so I'll have to do that this year because I keep putting it off. Wait, I actually did vid for an audience when I made Sour Cherry. So I'll change it. I try to think about what would play well at wiscon_vidparty, but I feel like I make vids I think will work, but probably don't actually work for the audience. It's partly due to never having attended, lol.

Vid projects I definitely want to get finished this upcoming year
Finishing any vid and releasing it online is an accomplishment at this point. I want to do at least one vid for Vividcon and one for wison_vidparty.

Resolutions for 2016
I want to go to Vividcon again this year, job timeline willing. I'll suggest a vidshow I'd VJ. I'm also planning to curate a playlist for wiscon_vidparty like usual.

I have lots of works in progress in various stages of completion. Part of my lower than usual number of released vids this year is that I started a lot of vids that I haven't finished. This year I want to try something new where I write down an idea when it strikes me and have to sit on it for a while before I actually start to vid it. That might decrease the number of vids I start and then abandon when something else shiny pops into my mind.

I want to rec more vids. I do it a lot of twitter and want to do it more.

And in addition:
If there is any question you would like to ask me about any one of my vids, then go ahead! What I meant by a particular clip or sequence, why I chose to highlight that characterization, why I chose that song, what crack I was taking and where you can get some...anything. Anything you might like to know about how I made a vid, I shall do my best to answer.

Curated for WisCon (wiscon_vidparty) 2015, "Beyoncé" - Collection of vids with music from Beyoncé.

Beyoncé is a singer and singwriter with work that contain themes ranging from love, empowerment, and female sexuality. With a focus of feminist science fiction in mind, I curated a list of vids with an emphasis on gender, race, class, and feminism.

1. anoel's Get Me Bodied (Fifth Element)
2. jetpack_monkey's Radio (Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'?)
3. elipie (featuring kuwdora)'s Run The World (Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D)
4. milly's Diva Swing (Wrestling / RPF AJ Lee)
5. sweetestdrain's Love on Top (Carrie)
6. kiki_miserychic's ***Flawless (Disney Princesses)

Links to previous WisCon Playlists I've curated:
Dessa Playlist - WisCon 2014 (Collection of vids with music from Dessa)
Thank Heaven for Little Girls Playlist - WisCon 2013 (Collection of vids about little girls: their protectors, their victims, their worlds, their families, their missions, their deaths...)

Please, if you have links to other vids of Beyoncé's music, leave links in the comments. Thank you.

I'm VJ-ing a trailer vid show for this year's Vividcon. I have quite a few in mind, but there are loads of gems I've never seen, so please send me some recs. I know there are vidders out their have edited fake trailers and I have some, but certainly not all. Self-recs are encouraged. I'd welcome premieres as well. Ideally I want a wide variety on as many levels as possible. Send me fake movie trailers, fake tv spots, book trailers, fic trailers, mash ups, everything.

Feel free to comment, private message, or email me (miserychic47 at hotmail dot com).

vid title: Love is Blue
music: Paul Mauriat
source: Life After Beth
duration: 2:33
Notes: Made for elipie for Festivids. It started out as a joke about how much she loves the guy's face that I made so many times I had to make something. The song is one I've wanted to vid since I heard it on the tv show Millenium decades ago. The cover has a smooth jazz feel that relaxed Beth's zombie-ness in the movie, so I felt it was appropriate.
summary: Boy and girl fall in love. Girl dies. What now?

December, but only because I backdated my festivids posts and they were released in January technically
25 - World Spins Madly On (New Amsterdam) - Woke up and wished that I was dead.
26 - #timeangels (Time Angels episodes of NTSF:SD:SUV::) - (It's a fake trailer.) Time Angels, coming this fall to Adult Swim. Come with Seconds, Minutes, Hours, Dash, Clock, Millie... and Mona Lisa as they repair tears in the fabric of time.

January and Febuary
none

March
5 - Snakes on a Plane (Person of Interest) - Reese is legit tired of the machine.

April
none

May
25 - Lonely Little Petunia (The Walking Dead) - Lizzie survived in a world lacking resources for little girls.

June
none

July
13 - Runs in the Family (Hannibal) - w͍̦͠ḩat ͜d̢o̸ ̷yo͘u ̓͂̍̽̋̽sè͆̾̑҉ë̽͆̕?̅̕ (character study of Abigail Hobbs in season one and two.)

August, but really they're vids that premiered at Vividcon, so, like, why do I even categorize these by when I released them online?
12 - ***Flawless (Disney Princesses movies (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Mulan, The Princess and the Frog, Tangled, Brave, and Frozen)) - We woke up like this.
13 - I Do Adore (Adventure Time) - Every little thing Marceline does, Princess Bubblegum adores. Kinda. (BUBBLINE 4EVA).
13 - You are a runner & I am my father's son (Teen Wolf) - a haiku for fictional ladies: / sorry your story / was left in such clumsy hands / i will avenge you


Total of 8 vids, 5 of which are under 2 minutes and could be considered vidlets... I was really into vidlets for the "get in, do the thing, get out" aspect.


My favorite video this year (of my own)
Runs in the Family. Absolutely my favorite vid I made this year. It's the most brain to actual timeline vid thing I've produced. My brain categorized all of the source in such a way that I made it a vid. Abigail is a character close to my heart and I stan for her 100%.

Least favorite
World Spins Madly On. I had a difficult time making it. I had offered Night Watch and Day Watch for festivids, but I quickly realized I wouldn't be able to finish the vid I was working on, so I put it aside and started watching New Amsterdam to make a vid. Then I scrambled for a song. Then I had to actually vid it. The product ended up with poor pacing because I needed the song to fit the concept of being chronological, which meant the beginning was boring as FRELLING FRAK. Looking back I do enjoy parts of the vid.

Most successful
***Flawless. It was inadvertently successful. I made it for Club Vivid, but it didn't fit into the other music, so the Vividcon people offered to let me move it to Challenges. But I didn't like the idea of putting it in Challenges when I didn't make it for the themes, so I asked if I could make ***Flawless my premiere in place of Runs in the Family, which I had already submitted. It worked out that ***Flawless became my premiere and I released Runs in the Family online pre-VVC. I made ***Flawless for Club Vivid thinking people would dance to it, watch it later, and think "oh ok I get it now." It was a deeply personal experience that I translated into a vid and I didn't think anyone would care about the vid beyond myself, but I was wrong.

Video most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion
I Do Adore. Only because I didn't know how to tag it properly for the fandom to find it. It was appreciated by friends' child relative and that's all I really wanted.

Video with single sexiest moment
You are a runner & I am my father's son. The :58-1:05 section is hella sexy with the threesome dancing because that scene in the show was awesome. I'm into it even though there is so much sausage in there. Mostly because the sausages seemed equally into each other as they were into Erica. Bless those sad-eyed little puppies and their love of extended eye contact. Then it goes into Erica putting her hand on Scott and Allison's thigh in a same scene deal where Erica tries to intimidate both of them sexually. Of course Allison on top of Erica is hot in a screwed up way considering how that storyline played out. Season one was beautiful fluke.

Biggest vid fail
#timeangels. I was trying to make a fake tv promo trailer thingy and I suck at it. I'm still obsessed with the concept and execution of vid trailers.

Hardest video to make
World Spins Madly On. Because of the reasons I put in the lease favorite category above.

Most unintentionally *telling* video
***Flawless was intentionally telling, so I'll say Runs in the Family because there's some intense connections to my life that I didn't realize until I rewatched for this meme. (Isn't that always how it happens?)

Things I've learned
I learned a lot about vidders' lyrical interpretation styles for the Vividcon 2014 Lyrical Interpretation Panel with hollywoodgrrl. I ate everyone's brains and gained their knowledge.

I realized that if I edit with 1080p source, I have to export it as 1080p for it to look good. I have some major exporting regrets this year. I'm upping my technical skills slowly, but I think I'm getting better with time.

I learned that I can't speak well in public about vidding for Vividcon panels.

Things to work on
I should ask friends to "beta" by vid summaries for VVC. The one for You are a runner & I am my father's son confused people and I overestimated the audiences' awareness of the title clip where I used a blur to focus in on just Erica to set up that it was about her. With a little of Boyd.

I need to work on exporting. I have a new laptop, but I can't even get Sony Vegas installed properly on it, so I might have to give up vidding and relearn how to knit.

I'm continuing from previous years with "I want to try vidding female characters that do more than beat people up and make things explode while being pretty." I think I accomplished that with character studies of female characters that are perceived to be weak.

Last year I said "I think this year I want to try considering the audience more to stretch myself." I didn't do it on purpose, but I made an audience appreciated vid for Vividcon premieres... So I'm going to call that goal from last year accomplished and go back to my "fuck bitches; get money" frame of mind because I'm unlikely to make any vid as audience appreciated as ***Flawless.

Wait, I can't call it accomplished completely because I also said "I'd like to make one vid this year where I actually vid for an audience." I kind of did that for Wiscon, but I think I'll keep trying to make something more audience minded for Wiscon_vidparty.

Vid projects I definitely want to get finished this upcoming year
I want to do my vid idea for the Taylor Swift 1989 vid album, which I plan to be my Vidukon vid. I want to finish my festivid assignment. I want to do some Vividcon vids. I had some good ideas for Festivids that I want to keep thinking about. They were treats for friends I wanted to make, but I'm a piece of shit and know I won't be able to finish them by the deadline.

Resolutions for 2014
To finish up the questions on the Vidding Questions Meme. J left a comment that I missed, so I'll start with those, but now I want to answer them all. I noticed some comments on vids I never saw, so I'll be going back to answer those after I finish my festivid.

Again, I want to go to VVC and hope that I won't be laid off again from work. I'm going to suggest a vidshow again because I really enjoyed pulling together the Femslash vidshow this year. I'm still really pleased with it for the amazing vidders that contributed, the diversity in the sources, the different styles, and the everything of it.

I'm going to make suggestion of some vidshows I'd curate for Wiscon_vidparty again this year too. I really enjoyed curating the Dessa Playlist in 2014. I already have two possibilities in mind depending on what else I find this year. It depends on what I get for festivids too. I played the long game with my requests and asked for things I put in personal vid playlists.

I changed my vidding note style and want to keep trying new journaling styles. I found an index one I want to try out for 2015.

Continuing to look at last year's resolutions, I failed at being "more social online" in terms of vidding. My interactions are mostly on twitter, which is great aside from the 140 character limit when I'm a wordy mofo. I don't think many of my friends are still on LJ without being on twitter. I'm a terrible friend anyway.

It's after 2am and I think I need to purge myself of work in progress vids that I'm not feeling anymore. So in 2015 I want to release some WIP vids to clear them from my head because nothing kills an idea for me like showing it to people.

OMG, my resolution should be to just vid more.

And in addition:
If there is any question you would like to ask me about any one of my vids, then go ahead! What I meant by a particular clip or sequence, why I chose to highlight that characterization, why I chose that song, what crack I was taking and where you can get some...anything. Anything you might like to know about how I made a vid, I shall do my best to answer.

That's the night I knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you
I'm drowning in a sea of love

I got a feeling that I found my home
Through window pane like a flying stone
Settled in my place with a broken sound
You won't hear the glass
Falling on the ground


03. Desire - Meg Myers
Baby, I want to touch you,
I wanna breathe into your will.
See, I gotta to hunt you,
I gotta to bring you to my hell.

I wanna feel you in my bones.

Boy, we are family,
No matter what they say,

And run away one day.

The higher that I climb

It whispers at first
But it ends with a shout

In your heart, in your head,
in your arms, in your bed under your skin,
Til there’s no way to know where

11. Happiness - Grant Lee Buffalo
Out of my body, been out of my head
Never mind the curse of war
Proud like a badge that just don't shine no more
Let him bring you happiness, happiness

It seems like once again you've had to greet me with goodbye

Femslash Vidshow (Hug a Woman With Your Legs) Recs (I truly rec all of these vids. There's not a single one I didn't enjoy and love. I tried to pull together as varied choices as I could, so please enjoy.)

In femslash things can be more fun, more complicated, more adorable, more colorful, over the top, but never sated. Where fear and propaganda can meet. Sometimes it's sad and sweet, sometimes it needs to be created or seen from a different angle. They can be separated by glass, separated by death, always in our hears, like a fairytale that was fated to be cut together from different parts to become something new.

1. Scarlett North-Cavanaugh's It Keeps Getting Better (Multi) - This is actually framed as an advertisement, but I really like how it showed current femslash relationships in the media today.
2. elipie's The Way We Get By (Broad City) - This is my jam. I love this show, this couple, this vidder, this everything.
3. shati's We Are Complicated (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - There's such a distinct understanding of Faith/Buffy. The nuances in the movement within the vid is great.
4. kitty's Don't Let Me Fall (Yes or No) - So adorable. I already have the source on my must see list. So adorable and sweet.
5. kiki_miserychic's I Do Adore (Adventure Time) - Self-rec, I know, but Princess Bubblegum and Marceline are so cute and in love. I'd originally started this for cherryice's festivid treat, but ended up rewatching the whole show instead of making the deadline.
6. sweetestdrain's Let Me Put My Love Into You (Bitch Slap) - How could I not include some exploitive and over the top awesome? Too good.
7. The Cylon Vidding Machine (beccatoria, metatxt, cyborganize, and heyiya)'s The Enemy Within PSA (Battlestar Galactica) - Funny and creepy at the same time. With boobs. My faves.
8. milly's Wonder (Once Upon a Time) - Breaks my heart when I think of Mulan. WEEE CCCOOOOULLD OFFF HHAAAADD IIITTT AAAAALLLLLLLL.
9. niyalune's Mrs. and Mrs. Blake (Teen Wolf) - Beautifully constructed trailer for underused characters (Jennifer and Kali). Epic as all hell.
10. anoel's Ready or Not (Faking It) - Another vid that made me seek out the source after watching. So cute and sad and adorable.
11. ghost_lingering's Signs (Dark Angel) - I adore this vidlet and everything that it is. Original Cindy was FORMATIVE for me.
12. zeppie9294's Let Her Go (The Last of Us) - So heartbreaking and wonderful.
13. fray_adjacent's Everywhere (Xena: Warrior Princess) - I think there's a guideline somewhere that femslash vidshows should have Xena in them and this vid is perfection.
14. FenrirsLittleSister's I Was Married (The Little Mermaid and Aladdin) - I'm so glad I was able to include this vid. The way the sources were put together and the storyline achieved fill me with joy. It's like taking something from childhood and reconstructing it into something new.
15. beccatoria and chaila's Hands Away (Fringe/Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) - I knew I had to have this vid in my femslash vidshow. Come on, look at it. It's skillfully made and I bought into the premise immediately.
16. hollywoodgrrl and ohvienna's Vitalum Vitalis (American Horror Story: Coven) - When they sent it to me, I watched it and cried so hard. I thought they were going to "fix" the ending with Cordelia and Misty Day... It's their fault that I didn't have a happy ending femslash vidshow. Those assholes (ilu tho).

Alternate Universe Final Vid for Those Who Long for Happy Endings: jarrow's I Wanna Dance (Glee) - Dancing Lesbians! Be good to yourself and be converted to Faberry and Brittana.

A special thank you to those vidders who kindly allowed me to use their work and those who created premieres. You are brilliant unicorns and I treasure you like pancakes.
