heidi: (Book 2)
I have so many feels about Show last night, I can't even. But I'll try...

Back in the summer of 2005, I was at the Beverly Hilton with my grandma; we were in town for my niece's babynaming and there were all these posters all over the hotel for the new season of shows on TheWB, including something called Supernatural. It looked too horrorshow for me.


It took until 2006 for so many of you to fangirl it so hard that I started watching; I haven't stopped, I'm still into Show, and that's why my soul is overflowing with joy at how much #Supernatural200 was/is a love letter from Supernatural to the fans, and from the fans to the show. Thanks to the network, the writers, producers, directors, cast (past and present) and everyone behind the scenes, but more than that...


Thanks to the creative minds in this fandom, because without their fic, art, cosplay & more, wouldn't exist.


This episode - this transformative episode of a show that's not some meandering genre dreck - exists because the fans have created so much awesome. No other show can do - or say - that like Supernatural can.


Go, fangirl.


Because what every Supernatural fan has done to create, inspire, share, rec, curate and squee about when fangirling (or fanboying) is the reason we have this episode. Thank you, fandom, for doing so much to make #SPN200 possible.


It's like Misha said last night:


I have a hunch that [livejournal.com profile] missyjack and I may try to parlay this into a panel at SDCC this summer, because what's happened with SPN and its fandom, as shown by, in and through this episode, is unique - and probably not emulatable by any other show, film, webseries or book series, but it's a fascinating showcase of what happens when The Powers That Be let the transformative works develop amongst the fans. It's aspirational, it's magical and it's family.

And now I have to go and ponder whether a fan-staging of "Fan Fiction" would be a transformative work/fair use.
heidi: (vidding)
Are you still watching Supernatural?

I almost stopped at some point in S7 - but I watched them all by the time the season ended, and loved Season Eight in so many ways, and for so many reasons.

In other words, Supernatural, I'm still into you.

I should get over all the butterflies, but I'm into you.


So since a song summed it up so well, I had to put it into fanvid form.

Title: Still Into You
Song By: Paramore
Rating: PG
Genre: Gen, Show-love
Characters: Oh, everyone! Not literally, and it's mostly Sam and Dean, but there's Bobby and Castiel and John, Henry and Mary Winchester, Charlie, Kevin, Andy, Ash, Jo, Ellen, Meg, Ruby, Death, some Leviathans, a number of demons and God (or Chuck). Play spot-the-episode!
Warnings: There's under one second of images from the teaser that's been released for S9. Blink and you'll miss it. Blink at 1.22 for about two seconds if you want to miss it. If you blink you won't be dead, SuperWhoLock people. I promise.Watch it here. )

Crossposted from LJ:

Your main fandom of the year? I was as multifandomish as I've been in any recent year, but I was probably mostly Avengers-focused, except for a brief Hunger Games moment.


Your favorite film you watched this year? AVENGERS! I saw it in theaters three times in two and a half days, in two different states, and managed a total of twelve times in theaters before it wrapped up. And I squee-ed every time!


Your favorite book read this year? I started the year reading Beth Revis's Across the Universe, and I can't wait for Shades of Earth next month! (And no, I didn't finish Casual Vacancy; I got strep when I was around a third finished, and wasn't able to concentrate on anything. Hope to finish it during travels in the next month or two.)


Your favorite album or song to listen to this year? iTunes tells me that my most played song that I first listened to in 2012 was fun.'s Some Nights (Intro)/Some Nights, which is one spot ahead of the fun. cover of Call Me Maybe. The original of Call Me Maybe is only a few spots back! So, basically, Top 40 Pop!


Your favorite tv show of the year? Doctor Who's Pond sequence ended wonderfully, with solid episodes, and I loved the three Sherlock eps from back in January. I'm still watching SPN but cannot get used to the Wednesday timeslot and tend to watch it on Friday mornings, still.


I really enjoyed Political Animals (except for the plane crash concept in the final episode) and wish it had been renewed for another season. It worked as a standalone series, though.


Oh, and does UP! With Chris Hayes count? 


Your best new fandom discovery of the year? Does Cabin Pressure count? It made flying actually fun, and funny, and my kids have become fans of it, too. Yellow car!


Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year? Elementary not having a military background for Joan Watson, and not having time to watch either The Hours or Teen Wolf. Political Animals and Leverage not being renewed.


Your fandom boyfriend of the year? Still Tom Hiddleston, unless Neil Finn counts because of the song on the Hobbit soundtrack. (Please, give this man an Oscar nom!)


Your fandom girlfriend of the year? Surprisingly, because I didn't adore her in IM2, I found Natasha utterly awesome in Avengers.


Your biggest squee moment of the year? Going to the sneak preview of Avengers in NYC early in the morning of April 14, almost completely unspoiled (Coulson! Rag-Doll!Loki! Shakespeare in the Park!).


The most missed of your old fandoms? I still miss Heroes S1/2, when it was really good.


The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to? Teen Wolf looks fun, from the gifs I've seen, but I want to have the time to focus on it rather than have it in the background.


Your biggest fan anticipations for the coming year? LOKI TWO. Ahem. THOR TWO. Also IM3. More Sherlock, and hopefully something about the DW 50th Anniversary shenanigans!

heidi: (IM2)
A mashup of Supernatural, Glee, Heroes, Thor and Sherlock for a comprehensive examination of brotherly feelings in modern media formats, aka a lot of EMOTIONS!!! with Winchesters, Andersons, Petrellis, Odinsons and Holmeses.

Because really, when are they not angsty?

Set to Darren Criss & Matt Bomer's duet of Gotye's Somebody That I Used to Know
Spoilers for random episodes of all serieses/films including Glee 3.15.

Are you ready for the angsting? The melodious, musical, fraught, broyaytastic angsting? Good! Click here! )

You can also click to watch it here, and it's on my tumblr too!

Note: I saw Avengers this weekend; the vid was completed before I saw the film and there is nothing I would have done otherwise. I may remaster it and include a clip or two when a good copy of Avengers comes out sometime late this summer, but since I did this vid before seeing the film (omgflailSOGOODspoilerycommentslater) it is not spoilery for Avengers.

SPN 7.01 how *how* are we in season SEVEN wtf? )

And, really? Fucking hell, season seven. Little show that could, you still really, really can. (and I sort of like how S7OMG looks like a l33t version of ZOMG. Appropriate!)

OMGYAY SPN! 25 hours away! Now, how can I convince my husband to take the kids out for ice cream tomorrow night so I can have an HOUR for SHOW?

I'm celebrating with a vid! [livejournal.com profile] serenada_art won me in Help_Japan, and requested something SPN set to Chumbawumba's Tubthumping, so that's what I did! Spoilers through the end of Season 6 but no hints about anything in S7.

Gen, PG for violence, created as a transformative work, etc.

I was lucky enough to get to do a cover, some icons/ephemera and a vid/trailer for [livejournal.com profile] monsterfan's [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang fic, Smells Like Teen Spirit.

Here's the summary:
After discovering Adam, Sam and Dean wonder if John Winchester fathered any other children. They soon find out he did: their half-sister Mary Sue. The boys set out to find her, but it's not a happy reunion. Mary Sue is convinced they're a closeted gay couple and is hell-bent on helping them come out. She and her best friend even write about them in series of controversial blog posts. Meanwhile, her college campus is besieged with murders that Sam remembers reading on the Supernatural fan website, which he's developed a strange addiction to, and something weird is going on between Sam and Dean, leading Dean to conclude they've been trapped in an alternate universe where slash fan fiction is coming true.


Vid behind the cut )

I've also uploaded the trailer/vid here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=VXH8JRDX

You can also visit Mary Sue's Facebook page here or check out the ebook cover here or behind the cut )
I had such an amazing time working with [livejournal.com profile] monsterfan on the art and vid I did for her fantastic fic. And I can't believe I'm done with all my BigBang responsibilities so early and now all I have to do is sit back and enjoy the other stories as they come in!

Icon is gackable, btw.

as I had to stop halfway through the first episode to go pick up my husband, whose car battery died at his office. Luckily, despite the 45 minute interruption, it was wonderful to enjoy this cohesive, wrap-uppingly wonderful Show! )

heidi: (Dazzling!)
Warnings: MPREG and crack.

Title: Dean, You're Having My Baby.

Song: Having My Baby as performed by Cory Monteith in S1 of Glee. No connection with his role in Wendigo is intended.

Summary: Castiel's touch is more powerful than Dean knows - and he's not using the right kind of protection when dealing with an angel. Castiel tells Dean his feelings about this unexpected situation, in song.

Ship: Dean/Castiel! Srsly!

Purpose of this Vid: Created for [livejournal.com profile] missyjack as she won me in a 2010 auction. It took this long for Show to film and broadcast the perfect clips. Thank you, Misha and Jensen for being you.

Warnings/Rating: Well, that kids book Mr Seahorse was a G-rated thing, so the presence of mpreg itself doesn't raise the rating here. So, PG-13 for violence and self-harm.

Hey, my mood icon showcases Sam's emotions on learning about the situation!

How many minutes until Doctor Who?

Oh, also! I took the kids to see Hoodwinked II last night; it was mediocre, but not terrible.
