2015: The Year That Was (fannish roundup) 
31st-Dec-2015 07:21 pm
Becc_j Art
I feel like I've been less fannish this past year than ever before. And yet, when I reflect on the year it looks like I made one more vid than I did the year before (8), I still did ep reviews (hee, only "just" at times) and I was pretty busy on twitter with a new twitter account I started (One Perfect SPN Shot). So, maybe I was still a little bit fannish. ;)

5.16 fireworks



Vids:

Twenty Years Sam, Dean, the road and the Impala.

Jared Padalecki - Stand The Adorkable Adventures of Jared Padalecki (and his best bud, Jensen Ackles).

The Supernatural Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle! Crack!

You Sexy Thing S10 Gag Reel.

Where My Demons Hide Dean character vid.

Happy Together Celebrating the chemistry and friendship between Jared and Jensen and Sam and Dean.

Finding Normal Banner vid for annie46's story of the same name.

Sexy Gardner Crack! New version of the sexy gardner add. Featuring Dean.


I seem to make a mix of quick, strange vids and lengthier character driven ones. I still really love making vids but they take so damn long that I find I have little time (and patience!) to really get stuck in. It's still a great creative outlet for me so I hope to keep dabbling with them in the new year. :)


Picspams:

Significant Supernatural Sandwiches

Visual Clues to Sam being Soulless in S6

Twitter

I've enjoyed twitter this past year. The people I follow are very entertaining and it seems like a good way to keep up to date with fannish stuff going on. I still love LJ, but I found that I didn't visit it as regularly as I used to. I've enjoyed finding and posting cinematographic shots to @spn_shot. It's been a great way to learn about each director's style. I've been going through the seasons and I did kind of hit a roadblock when I got to S8 and S9. But my aim for 2016 is to keep posting.


Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful 2016. Thank you for all your wonderful posts and for engaging in show discussions with me. *HUGS*

Happy new year to you and yours (and wishing you all the best with the bar!)

I'm so happy that you're here in fandom (especially LJ because I don't tend to stray from here often). You vids, picspams, reviews, and thinky thoughts are always welcome, and I always enjoy spending time with you *hugs*

One Perfect SPN Shot

*EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE* IT'S YOU!!! THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU FOR STARTING IT!! There is so much pretty over there and I'm so so sorry for re-tweeting the heck out of everything /o\ but everything there is so pretty and awesome and I can't decide what to leave out when re-tweeting and YOU DESERVE SO MANY GOLD STARS AND GOOD KARMA FOR THAT TWITTER. \o/\o/\o/ (Seriously, I can stop with the obsessive re-tweeting if you prefer that.)

And YAY for the awesome videos and picspams, too! You have a great visual eye!

Happy New Year!! ♥♥
2nd-Jan-2016 06:11 am (UTC)
YAAAAAY!!!! And wow, there is no need to say sorry for re-tweeting everything! That's awesome! I've had such a lot of fun going through and finding so many wonderful shots. We are so lucky with this show. :D

THANK YOU!!!! \o/ (what's your twitter name over there?)
31st-Dec-2015 12:26 pm (UTC)
WHAT??? YOU'RE the one behind @spn_shot??? I HAD NO IDEA!!!!! I love that account SO MUCH!!! And we really enjoyed it when you were simultaneously tweeting pics from the episodes we were watching during the series rewatch we were doing!! Thank you so much for starting that account!!

I have LOVED every single video you have done!! I was kinda on vacation from twitter for a few days when the last one came out, but I always try to promote them when I can! I hope you will continue to do them, and continue to ENJOY doing them in the new year!!

Hope you're having a great time tonight! Wishing you peace, love, joy, and happiness in the new year ahead!

I didn't realise you were on LJ too - *waves*

Happy New Year, lady!

. . . and you know what? I'm glad you're part of this fandom. Not only do you create THE best vids, you always have the most thoughtful, most intelligent things to say about our show, about our boys -- even when an episode might leave you cold. You never hate on either brother, you unfailingly find the beauty in SPN's cinematography, and your eagle eye for detail is amazing. You're a gift to fandom, and we're lucky to have you. ♥

Roll on, 2016!
2nd-Jan-2016 06:17 am (UTC)
Oh wow. Thank you so much honey. They are truly lovely words. <33

And same to you! You're always so positive and upbeat and supportive of so many in fandom. AND you do amazing art works!!

All the best for 2016. I hope it's a great year for you. <3


*HUGGLES* <33

I didn't know the Perfect SPN Shot Twitter was you! Though of course it makes perfect sense. ;) With the exception of a few friends, it's the only SPN Twitter I follow, which I've found exactly perfect for my needs and desires. LOVE it, and love you!!
2nd-Jan-2016 06:19 am (UTC)
I didn't know the Perfect SPN Shot Twitter was you!

Hee, well I kept it quiet. I wanted to just see how it went. I am so glad you like it. :D I've really enjoyed discovering all the wonderful shots the show produces. It's also helped me remember where certain scenes are AND it's meant I've re-watched some episodes too.

All the best for 2016! *hugs*

Happy New Year, darlin'!

*buys everyone a round at the new bar*

All the best for 2016 honey! *glomps*

*buys everyone a round at the new bar*

WOOT!! <33

I've missed having you on here, Twitter is just too --- I dunno. Time consuming, scattered, chaotic, and I find it feels more cliquey than LJ, which seems a bizarre thing to say when LJ is the place with closed groups and journals and Twitter is all exposed.

But yay for episode reactions and definitely I hope for more insights and vids from you in 2016!

PS how the hell did I not realise one perfect shot was you!???!
2nd-Jan-2016 06:25 am (UTC)
Hey hun.

I've missed having you on here

Yeah, I'm conscience that I haven't been here as much lately. I do my best to check it out, but some days I just don't get to it. ;( But I agree about your assessment of twitter. I think I mostly just sit back and look at what everyone is talking about. Occasionally I post stuff, but it's so fraught. People really don't like any sort of crit of the show over there (that I've noticed). Or, if they do, it's ONLY crit. Agh, I can't explain it.

I think LJ is better because there's an open invitation to comment if you are on someone's f-list. With twitter, it doesn't feel that way (or on tumblr for that matter).

PS how the hell did I not realise one perfect shot was you!???!

Well, I didn't say anything. I wanted to see how it went and I wanted to keep it separate from "me" (for some reason). I thought I'd mention it on my LJ because it's ended up being something I'm quite proud of. :)

All the best for 2016!! I hope it's a great year for you! <33 Thanks for all your wonderful works throughout the year. *hugs*

31st-Dec-2015 05:04 pm (UTC)
I really enjoyed all your vids this year so I (selfishly) hope you'll keep vidding in 2016 too. :) Wishing you a very happy new year! <3
2nd-Jan-2016 06:26 am (UTC)
Thanks so much!!

I certainly hope to keep vidding. I'll be looking for some inspiration when the show returns. :))

All the best for 2016! <33

*hugs*

Happy New Year bb1 You've been busy!! ♥
2nd-Jan-2016 06:27 am (UTC)
Thanks hun! It's be quite a busy year, that's for sure!

All the best for 2016 honey! Thanks for being so lovely and wonderful *hugs*

I'm so glad you're still hanging in with us on LJ. I'm happy that Twitter is a new playground, and you're having fun. It's great that lots of new people have found you and follow your talented posts. I tend to stick pretty close to LJ though, with side-trips to Tumblr. There're only so many hours in the day, and I'm a slow old rabbit. So it's nice to know you'll still be sharing your episode insights (LOVE the visual-cinematic analyses!) and vids. LJ wouldn't be the same without them, or without you.

Happiest of New Years to you!
2nd-Jan-2016 08:38 am (UTC)
Hey!

I can't see myself leaving LJ completely - it's the only place for decent discussions and interaction. I enjoy twitter, but mostly as an observer. And the same for tumblr. :)

I'll try and share more cinematic posts on LJ this year. I have a heap of screen caps - so maybe I'll do some theme posts (I'm thinking aloud here, but I might just try and do that *g*).

All the best for 2016! :))
1st-Jan-2016 04:42 am (UTC)
I love you in all your fannish incarnations :) Don't ever stop being fannish!

Happy New Year, gf :)
2nd-Jan-2016 08:39 am (UTC)
Thanks hun! I hope to never stop being fannish! :D
1st-Jan-2016 01:50 pm (UTC)
Happy New Year, Lovely!! ((squiiishh)) ♥ :D
I'm so happy you are still around here, posting and squeeing (and complaining) about Show. It keeps me semi attached to fandom when otherwise I would have.. probably never gotten into it in the first place. lol ;D

I'm suddenly having images in my head that not only Sam and Dean are aged hunters with walking frame- but also us fans are white haired, toothless old folk, still cheering on their fav characters! haha haha haha omg. lol

Btw, if you are interested in seeing the fireworks mania in our neighbourhood last night, here is a short impression from my kitchen window: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yW6TbqHiizY

May 2016 be prosperous and happy for all of us and see Supernatural take off into unexpected new hights! :D

((more happy hugging)) ♥♥♥

Hey!

Thanks for the vid link. That looks wild! It reminds me of new year's in Amsterdam, where the streets and skies were filled with random fireworks. It's amazing to me because in Australia fireworks are banned - so we only ever have the organised events. Perth don't do them at New Year (well, a small one), they save it for Australia Day - Jan 26th).

I hope 2016 is wonderful for you honey. <3333 I'm looking forward to new SPN eps. I have no idea what we'll be in for but I'm pretty sure it's going to hurt!

*pada hugs* I love that you're still around! <333333

Ok so this is an old post but I had to comment cos heeee! One Perfect SPN Shot!!! I knew it was you! Ok, I didn't really know, but I had a strong hunch somehow :D
I love this account! So many perfect shots! And I love how you collect and post similar stuff from different epis from time to time. Heck, I love everything you post there! We are really blessed with the cinematography on our show. It's perfect, even when some other things aren't sometimes ;)
I hope you'll have a wonderful 2016 and that you'll keep enjoying all the wonderful fannish stuff you do!
14th-Jan-2016 12:18 pm (UTC)
Hi! Yep! It's me! :D I love the cinematography and it helps me still enjoy the show even when it either disappoints or upsets me. I am so glad you enjoy the twitter (and thank you for your interest in it - I've been seeing your comments, and likes etc. <33 )

Only 1 week know until the show returns! YAY! :D
