Never Could Spell Medieval (PG)

Title: Never Could Spell Medieval
Author: Dee Laundry
Pairing: House/Wilson
Rating: PG
Summary: How can you have one without the other? Discussion the day before Halloween, 2014
Notes: Thank you SO MUCH to [personal profile] nightdog_barks and bironic for beta duties and general cheerleading. There is actually sick Wilson in this fic, but don't blink because you'll miss it. If you'd like more sick Wilson, please let me refer you back to a previous fic in this 'verse, Senseless, which has heaping helpings of hurt, both physical and mental (but a happy ending). The entire My Fathers' Son series can be found on AO3 here.

Dear Festividder 2014

Dear Festividder,

Thank you for signing up for Festivids and for choosing one of these sources to vid. Below are some ideas in case they would help.

Threesome. Eddy POV, please. Alex and Stuart are both great, but Eddy's the one I identify with. I like the physical touching in the movie, and the goofing around. Intercut that with the serious inner turmoil Eddy goes through, and you might just have a winner.

Fargo (2014) [TV]. I would love a multi-character vid. So many great characters and moments and developments, yes. I am not a huge fan of lingering attention to gore, but I do acknowledge that violence was an important part of the storytelling in the show.

The Colbert Report. Stephen Colbert is a very kinky man. Whether he knows it or not.

Ocean's movies (2000s' version). SLASH. Slash, slash, slashity-slash-slash. A shiny, slick, suavely dressed orgy of gay testosterone and role-playing is what I got out of these movies. Of course, Danny/Rusty. And Danny/Rusty/Linus (don't think I don't know what you were doing, Matt Damon, with your little-boy horizontal stripes and references back to daddy and mom). Those go without saying. But Virgil/Turk! And Frank! Basher/Livingston, with their exceptional fine motor skills. And Reuben flopping around under his bathrobe, curls peeking out. And Yen -- you can't tell me that flexibility didn't come in very handy at some point. I wouldn't kick Tess/Isabel out of bed for eating crackers, either.

Far From Heaven. Normally I don't even notice cinematography, but wow, this movie was beautifully shot. If you can use that to highlight the themes of friendship, love, persona, and identity, I would be grateful.

Scarecrow & Mrs King. I haven't seen the TV show in ages but I adored it when it was on television. Secrets, and role-playing, and home, and domestic, and pretend couple, and pretend-turned-real couple, and pretend-turned-real-couple-pretending-not-to-be-a-couple. YAY! All kinds of fun.


As in prior years, these sources fit the theme of: Identity / Persona / Hiding who you are / Discovering who you are by pretending to be someone else

Music: I personally enjoy geek rock (They Might Be Giants, Dead Milkmen, Weezer, BNL, Devo, Paul and Storm, Jonathan Coulton) but am certainly open to other genres. I like vids that tell a story (or make a point, or tell a joke, or some combination thereof), and songs that tell a story lend themselves pretty well to that.

And lo, she has awoken

Hi, everyone! I am having a great time at Con-Txt with [personal profile] bironic and many, many others. Modding/co-modding four panels this time:

- Gender and terminology with [personal profile] viklikesfic - with fun and jumping
- Dubcon with Ellen Fremedon - with allegories to capitalism (panel notes about to go up in separate post)
- Fargo
- Tagging (which I have promo'd in many other panels)

No pictures due to camera-shyness but I did cosplay for the "mirror universe" theme day as Sherlock Holmes, Reception/Kindergarten Teacher.

PS. Tonight I have a premiering vid, John/Sherlock! Will post to here late tonight or tomorrow. :)

Festivids reveals today!

I participated in Festivids again this year. My vid was for the movie Now You See Me, which is a fun and twisty whodunit with also TEAM and some interesting feels/philosophy and Bruce Banner as the lead and sparkly bondage. So. Definitely rec it. My vid, "Part of Me," does have a few spoilers but doesn't reveal who did the whodunit, and its theme is my favorite part of the movie: why do these magicians do what they do?

The vid I received is AWESOME and you should watch it if you haven't yet: Always on My Mind is by a vidder I hadn't met yet, Trutgras. Hope to see more by this vidder!

Please also go and give more love to [personal profile] bironic for her Interview with the Vampire vids.

Festivids!

First of what I'm sure will be many, many recs.

The vid for me! Always on My Mind, I Love You Phillip Morris. SO GREAT. Whether you've seen the movie or not, if you like scams and love and heart-felt zaniness*, you will like the vid. It's a great teaser for the movie without major spoilers. And I adore it. Plus if you can watch the vid without wanting to snuzzle Phillip's cute wittle face, well, comment and tell me how.

(*Just this second realized that this is my issue with Ben Stiller; his zaniness always seems to be missing heart)


A more serious and equally as heartfelt vid: The Waiting Game, The Station Agent (2003). Ooh, lovely job capturing this found-family, who-am-I-and-what-do-I-want film.

9 to 5, Lego Star Wars. Hilarious! As such_heights said, "I love everything this chooses to be." (Also, listen closely to the lyrics of the song. Dolly Parton's talking about what capitalism does to us.)

Sheep Go to Heaven, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. If you like the band Cake, I think you'll like this vid. It's charming. Even if you don't know the source (which I didn't), as long as you watched US TV in the 90s/00s you'll recognize the actors. :)

Nine Years of Ballet, ASSHOLE!, Outrageous Fortune (US 1987). As the anonymous vidder says, "how jetés and stage combat saved the world." This is a "source summary" vid, and a great one. You'll enjoy the story even if you've never heard of the movie.

Tomorrow is Festivids

So here is a great vid from last year to get us started! It is about TEAM, which I know you all love. Never seen the movie but I cared about the people in the vid from the first few moments \o/

Sherlock S3 E1

Just had my first time trying a livestream over the internet, and the experience was pretty good. Couple of laggy points, but that was expected, so overall satisfaction: high.

(Except the player had a pause button, which caused a blow-up each of the three times I forgot I wasn't watching a DVD and tried to pause. Oops.)

Slight Spoilers for Sherlock S3 E1Collapse )

You All Are on Notice

... Why did no one tell me Lili Taylor is on "Almost Human"? Robots AND Lili Taylor; I'm so there.

Meaningless to Everyone But Me

In the Omega-verse crossover fic I'm probably not ever going to actually write down (the one that starts with Wilson drunkenly musing on why humanity tends to sort newborns into male and female, and House correcting him on what the word "theory" means), the kid's father looks like Jason Statham (see this pic).

Also, the accent mark that I want to use for pronouns referring to alpha and omega is called a "macron." As in, "Sharing the heat with ā was a one-time thing."

Dear Festividder 2013

Dear Festividder,

Thank you for signing up for Festivids and for choosing one of these sources to vid. Below are some ideas in case they would help.

Archer. Can't put into words how whack-a-doodle this show is, in a mind-blowingly coherent way. The characters are insane, but quite competent in what they do, whether that's their actual job or running a railroad or racing drift cars. You could make a fabulous Lord King Bad vid to this source. (Yes, this is the write-up from year. It's still true.)

I Love You Phillip Morris. The way Steven's mind works is amazing, as in, produces amazement. And I wonder if Ewan McGregor took doe-eye lessons to be in shape for this movie. Steven/Phillip, 100%.

Far From Heaven. Normally I don't even notice cinematography, but wow, this movie was beautifully shot. If you can use that to highlight the themes of friendship, love, persona, and identity, I would be grateful.

Mary & Max. If you think this movie was weird, please don't vid it. If you adored the feelings and connections, then I will adore your vid.

Demolition Man. This a huge, over-the-top comic book of a movie. Can you see the hearts in my eyes? Don't take it too seriously, and we will be in complete accord. "You can take this job, and you can shovel it." (Music possibility: All restaurants are Taco Bell, and the oldies radio station plays...)

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I think Martin Freeman was in this, maybe? Kidding. Several continuous minutes of Martin's reactions would be wonderful.

The World's End. Martin was in this too? You don't say. ... OK, seriously, yes, I like Martin Freeman, but for this vid would love to see a lot of team/friendship feels.


PS for any treat-makers stopping by. A multi-source vid (including interviews, etc.) of Martin Freeman would be dreamy, except no hobbit feet, if you don't mind. Please do include him playing with his beads from this skit from Bruiser. TYVM.

"Have you seen the twin turbos on that new Cesna, by chance?"

Said to a male friend while staring creepily at Kristy Swanson. D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D:

I've liked RSL's acting in Ground Control -- up until that line. The rest of the movie is kinda eh, but it's fun for the 80s flashback.

The bully from Stand by Me and Lost Boys! The love interest from Top Gun! The dad from Family Ties! The Fonz! (Well, that's 70s but you get the point) Dot matrix printers! Headsets having plugs! Software design being "ones and zeroes, zeroes and ones"! Short-sleeve dress shirts worn with ties! A lot of coffee but none of it is from Starbucks (or equivalent fake brand due to copyright issues)!

Hello DW/LJ!

OK, so I am not dead, which is good. My creative mojo just went far, far away, and without that, I find myself very boring. Don't want to inflict the tedium on y'all, such lovely folks, and so stopped posting.

But! But! A sudden compulsion has come up to create a particular fanwork, so who wants a present? It's a Sherlock BBC vid, John/Sherlock. Started ripping eps last night and hope to have a draft done on Sunday. :)

Hope all is well with you. ♥ ♥ ♥
