Fic: Laufey’s Pride

Summary:

Laufey’s pride has ever been his downfall.

Notes:

1. Had this turning round in my head (2013) and decided to try to put some of it down for posterity. This may come across as Odin and/or Asgard bashing, but keep in mind that it is written from the view of Odin’s enemy and is a fair bit of fanon. Not quite AU, but definitely not the canon-compliant POV of the comics or the MCU.

2. Story is intended for entertainment purposes. No moneys made, transformative speculation only. Not my sandbox, just my words – legalise applies. Creative Commons such and such.

Comments and concrit welcome.

Vid: Something Else [2010]

Fandom:Caprica

Study: The S.T.O./Sister Clarice Willow

Summary: This is how it falls apart.

Warnings: Totalitarianism, Pantheism, Monotheism, Religion, Extremeism, Terrorism, all the other -isms. Canon-typical violence. Revealing lyrics.

Notes: This vid stems from my unease at the main story arc of Caprica, and my views on the socio-political environment of the show and any organization that employs such extremist/anarchist values. Here is how it all leads to the extremist idealogy becoming ingrained in the Cylon’s programming, and how that programming becomes the true seed of the Cylon/Human War of Battlestar Galactica.

Vids That Break Us [Marvel Version]: Came to Rec Up the Place

[18 Feb. 28th, 2017 06:02 pm]

So.

The title says it all, and I found another one. Regarding my head-canons of Steve/Tony possible marriage/definite established ship during Civil War, I am not as alone as I thought I was.

This vid
I Found by Jacleyn Hebron of youtube, is heartwrenching. Seriously, if you have one Steve/Tony bone in your body, it will be broken and no one will ever be able to fix it again. *sniffle*

Ouch..sssss….Owww….ssssss….

Now, Obvs this is a new vidder, and there are some small technical blips (mostly talkyface), BUT.
BUT!
Their eye is spot-on, their use of scenes is inspiring, their use of pan and zoom to subtly change and alter scenes and to create constructed scenes from raw footage is EXCELLENT. Their grasp of beatwork and flow, structure and emotional persuasion…OMG. I feel as if maybe I already know this person in fandom, their fingerprints are so clear. (LOL)

This is a person to keep eyes on, my friends. This is transformative at it’s best IMO, and the rawness adds to the appeal for me.

I’d love to know what someone else thinks.

Watch, adore, maybe die little bit inside and then squee and give major props to Jacleyn. I don’t know them personally, but I sure am glad they joined the party.

Fandom win.

Notes: So, here is my first Supernatural vid, after 13 years of watching this show. Comments and concrit welcome. Also, unable to source the credit for the lovely gif of wing hugging – if anyone knows the creator, please send them my way. I have no problem removing if it offends, and I would love to at the very least credit the artist.

Shakespeare’s New Contemporaries: http://www.sncproject.com/

(CNN)Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears — and your Shakespearean fan fiction.
Do you want to become a modern-day Shakespeare, or at least the next best thing? Do you have a great idea for a play about, say, Hamlet’s evil twin?
The American Shakespeare Center, a regional theater company in Staunton, Virginia, is looking to stage new plays as companion pieces to William Shakespeare’s classics — all 38 of them.

“We want to open the playhouse up to the next generation of the world’s greatest playwrights by having them write pieces that vibe off of, or are inspired by, each of Shakespeare’s plays,” Artistic Director Jim Warren announced on the center’s website.

The project, called “Shakespeare’s New Contemporaries,” is open to all aspiring playwrights and will run for the next 20 years.

Two playwrights will be selected each year and will be awarded $25,000, as well as the opportunity to produce their play at the center’s Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton — a faithful recreation of original indoor Blackfriars Theatre in London.

The first two productions will be mounted during the 2018-2019 season and will accompany either “The Merry Wives of Windsor,” “Henry IV, Part 1,” “The Comedy of Errors” or “The Winter’s Tale.”

Eligible plays must meet Shakespeare’s original staging conditions, which include a cast of 10-12, minimal sets and cross-gendered casting.
“Help us build a canon inspired by the greatest playwright of all time,” Warren said.

The Blackfriars Playhouse was built in 2001 and uses Shakespeare’s staging conditions, which include the audience as a part of its productions.
