Because when I find something I like, I need to shaaaaaaaaare! ;)




Oh HECK YEAH! *fistpump* This showcases not only Neal's sexy side but that playful, mischievous spark he has as well! One of my all-time favorite Neal tributes!

The first time I saw this, my mom asked me something while it was playing and I literally answered, "Asdfghjkl." I didn't even know I could PRONOUNCE that, lol! ;) She gave me this rather alarmed look and I said, "I have a vid to send you!" Once she had finished watching it, she said, "Okay, now, I see why you answered me like that!" ;)

If you like, leave the vidder some love!




I absolutely love it when somebody can take a song or a concept that you’d NEVER in a million years expect to see paired with a fandom/pairing and makes it work! ;) It was a lot of fun watching Arwen get increasingly RAEGy over Aragorn’s cheating ways, lol! ;) She actually got quite scary and intimidating in some of these scenes, IMO. I thought she was about to go full on dark!Arwen kinda like Galadriel did when tempted by the Ring, lol! O_O ;)

Jacob/Bella is my guilty pleasure ship in Twilight, (which is, yes, a guilty pleasure all on its own, what can I say? ;) ) one of those things that I really wouldn't have wanted to see/read in canon, per se, but that I LOVE seeing explored in fanworks! This is pretty much my favorite J/B vid ever because it managed the somewhat tricky task of keeping the story focused on just Jacob and Bella. It's not about Bella cheating on Edward with Jacob or whatever, it's JUST the two of them, exploring an AU relationship between them as if Edward had never been in the picture at all.

Plus, I love the way the vidder uses the beat (like Jacob swinging Bella around at :21 and the little stutter cuts at :27). ;) *thumbs up* This is a vid I come back to time and again but I don't think I've ever recced it before. (But I did, my apologies. I have a brain like swiss cheese on a good day. On a bad day, it's a LOT more holes than cheese! o_O ;) )

If you like, leave the vidder some love!




This song is SO PERFECT for Peter/Lydia, IMO, to the point that I now automatically think of it as "The Pydia Song" whenever I hear it! ;) It just suits whatever completely messed up relationship they could possibly have! ;)

In case you're not familiar with Teen Wolf (then get thee over and watch it, ASAP, you might like it, lol! ;) ) but watched this anyway (and in that case, thank you and know that I love you immensely for giving it a try! ♥you♥ ;) ) and are wondering which one of the couple of fellows we see in this vid is Peter (and you don't mind spoilers ;) ) click the spoiler thingy to find out! ;)

You see two versions of Peter Hale in this vid, adult!Peter (who leads her down the stairs at the start and whom we also see all burned and rather crispy looking, such at the :10 mark) and teenaged!Peter (whom she kisses at :29). ;)

If you like, leave the vidder some love!




I've seen some amazing DW vids in my time but this does one of the best jobs I think I've ever come across in encapsulating the laughter and tears of the Doctor in his Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh incarnations, especially in just over 5 minutes. It's awesome!

If you like, leave the vidder some love!

EDIT: Oops, I forgot this one... ;)



I looooove the way the vidder uses this voice over part of Lana Del Rey's "National Anthem" to really construct an AU story for Erica and poor, doomed Derek that feels natural to me. :( It also is, IMO, a great example of how to use the text in an non-invasive way that really enhances the vid without being distracting. :D

If you like, leave the vidder some love!

I had a Once Upon A Time Hook/Aurora vid I was going to rec as well but it's now been blocked for me at Youtube, UGH. :S Why was it fine for me to watch it a few days ago but not now, Copyright Police? I'm still in the same country, after all! (And it's not like I haven't heard "Swallowed In The Sea" before, I have the darn album! :S ) So I guess I'll stop here. But it's not a Vid Rec Party if I'm reccing all by myself, so feel free to share any vids that you just particularly love, if you're so inclined! :D

Thanks for checking out the recs (if you did ;) ), hope you found something you enjoyed! :D ♥♥♥!!!

I love these kinds of posts.

As for your Neal Caffrey rec, I believe that Asdfghjkl is an appropriate response because GOOD LORD. Matt Bomer shouldn't be legal. He literally ruined my life because the day I found out he was gay and in a committed relationship with 2 (3?) beautiful children, I declared "it's official. All the good ones are either taken or gay... or both. UGH. FML." LOL.

Regarding Jacob/Bella... I watched out of sheer morbid curiosity. I have been trying to read the books for 2 years now and the reason I have the hardest time is because of Jacob and all his bullsh*t. (After 2 years, I'm ALMOST done with book 3.) BUT, when you present Jacob/Bella as they did in that video? I totally see it. Not bullsh*t at all. I see your point about it being interesting to explore in fic and fanart. Very nice.

You're making me ship Peter and Lydia and I don't know how to feel about that. haha. I can't get on the Sterek train because of the age difference (statutory rape squick) so enter my confusion about why this video appealed to me. LOL.

Ooo, so glad you enjoyed the post! :D

I KNOW, RIGHT? ♥_♥ I'm so glad I could pass along the Asdfghjkl, lol! ;)

Hee, that's one of my favorite things about vidding, how you can take the canon material and get something completely new or different out of it. \o/ :D

Oh, there's SO many reasons why my fondness for Peter/Lydia gives me the conflicted feels! He attacked her, completely terrorized her, used her to bring himself back to life, AND there's a huge age difference between them with her being underage as well. :S (I think I automatically age-up all of the young characters or I'd feel like the world's most horrible person. *blush* :S )

However, I've always had a fondest for interesting bad guys and where I'm interested in a character, I'm going to start shipping them, it's just how I'm wired, I suppose! ;) I also think that, if things had played out very differently, (always!aged!up!to!me!)Lydia ;) and Peter allied together would be an unstoppable force! They could definitely create some havoc and I'd really find that interesting to see play out.

It also doesn't help that Ian Bohen and Holland Roden are clearly such good friends and they have such awesome chemistry together. ;) There's an 11 year age difference between them in RL but 25 and 36 is a lot better than however old Lydia and Peter are both supposed to be, considering how young she is. (Except in my own personal fanon *sticks fingers in ears and "lalala's"* ;) )

Oy, speaking of the statutory rape squick... that hit me SO hard in the ep where Erica and Boyd left Derek and she says the line about wanting to turn 16 and drive and I mentally went, "HO CRAP, SHE'S 15???" and wanted to crawl under the rug with all of my Derica shippiness and hide forever! :S I also ship her with Isaac, Boyd and Stiles -- not all at the same time ;) -- but Derek was my main Erica shipmate until I considered he's, what? Supposed to be like 22 - 24? :S

I already felt guilty because of the way he used sex/flirting to manipulate her into taking the bite. :S I definitely didn't find that to be his finest hour, for all that I love him, though I think it was telling that he used the same tactic on her that Kate had used on him (but even worse) when he was Erica's age. :( So my Derica feels also trouble me for a variety of reasons. :( And vids like this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljdaGp3ZF4I) also don't help. ;) (I'm going to add that in to main post as well so if you want to see the embed instead of following the link, it's up there. *points* ;) )

Anyway! Thanks so much for checking them out! *hugs* ♥!

haha. Ok, good. Glad it's not just me. (I actually heard something like Derek may actually be in his 30s? I can't remember how or where that came from but I remember when I heard it I was like "OH PLEASE THANK YOU GOD, he'll be my age and I can stop feeling like a cougar! At least for Derek. As for Tyler, we will not speak of it." I always separate characters from "real people" and I find myself more attracted to characters. I usually don't get into the whole RPF or whatever, but I can say I at least see HO'Brien as a ship more than Sterek. At least the RP are of age... which is probably also why Ian/Holland appeal to me. Man, I think my brain needs rewired. hahaha.

As for Derica! OMG! I didn't even make the connection of (a) she's fifteen! and (b) what you said about Kate and Derek and then Derek and Erica. OMG. Mind. Blown.

I feel dirty. Thank you. ;)

Ohhhh man, that's the only way I can deal with these characters! Everybody ages-up, pronto, lol! ;)

As for Tyler, we will not speak of it." I always separate characters from "real people" and I find myself more attracted to characters.

I remember hearing something like that, too, something about Derek being a lot older than we thought. I can't figure out how that'll fit with the timeline of Kate being older than him back when she used him to get to his family ('cause that'll age her up, too, for how old she was when she came back to town) and Stiles told us in ep 1 (and Peter repeated it as well) that it had been about 6 years since the fire that killed most of the Hales and that was when Derek was a teenager. And Stiles also said something about Derek being "a few" years older than he and Scott... It'll be interesting to see how they work that all out, then! ;)

And I'm the same way, I always go for the characters, not necessarily the actors (it's just so much tidier for me, that way if the actor turns out to be not-so-awesome, I can still try to enjoy the character -- within reason, anyway ;) ). But I do love it to pieces when the actors are clearly such awesome friends in RL and seem to really enjoy being with each other! And I swear, I've been trying SO HARD not to ship Ian/Holland in RL but if you watch enough of them together, they make it Very Difficult, lol! ;) But apparently they're just friends so I definitely respect that. ;)

As for Derica! OMG! I didn't even make the connection of (a) she's fifteen! and (b) what you said about Kate and Derek and then Derek and Erica. OMG. Mind. Blown.

Oh man, like I said, when I realized I was shipping a 15 year old girl with a grown man, I felt like such pond scum. Then I flashed myself with one of those Men In Black light things, applied some Torchwood-style retcon and went back to believing that Erica is just as aged-up as I consider all the rest of the characters to be and crawled out from under the couch and watched some more Derica vids... ;)

I read that about the connection between Kate and Derek and what Derek did to Erica somewhere on Tumblr and it totally blew my mind as well. That was some smooth writing to include it like that if it was a deliberate call back to how Derek was abused at that same age. It's like that's all he knows in how to relate to a girl/woman. How very sad. :( :( :(

I feel dirty. Thank you. ;)

Annnnd my job here is done. *sporfles* :P ;) *hands you MiB light thingie and some retcon* There, you'll feel much better. Just drink this and look over here into this light for a moment, won't you? :P ;) ♥!

I'm the same way with vid recs! I just can't help but share with my flist even if few care! :D

THANK YOU SOOO MUCH FOR THAT Neal Caffrey vid. OMG, OMG, OMG. THUD! I'm in the middle S3 and I'm glad to see that even in S4, with freaking grey in his stubbly beard, Matt Bomer/Neal Caffrey still looks drop dead gorgeous! (And by drop dead, I mean all the women (and men) that he's killed with his attractiveness! lol)

I always really enjoy it whenever somebody posts vid recs! :D There are only a couple of fandoms that I don't like to watch vids for and I find it kinda fun to watch vids for fandoms I have no clue about (that's how you often find cool, new fandoms! :D ).

*beams* I'm SO glad that you liked the Neal vid! He totally works that stubbly beard, even with the bit of gray, it's true! \o/ I don't think I've watched a single ep of White Collar that I didn't, at some point, say something out loud along the lines of, "Ohhhhh my, he's soooooo gorrrrrgeous!" ;)

*hiddles and hemsies* (Which reminds me that I didn't rec anything Avengers/Thor/Loki/etc this time. WHERE IS MY MIND? o_O ;) Next time! :D ) ♥!

PS - And yes, I had to use the appropriate Neal icon, lol! \o/

He really is a stunning specimen of a human being. Just saying!

Well, your rec post inspired me to rec too. And no worries about the lack of Avengers, almost all of my recs are Avengers. :)

Mmm, *licks your icon*
