I have to start by going....

Squeeeee! Remember a vid I made a little while back called No Bravery? Well, stillwaters01 has written an amazing story inspired by the vid. (And I'm not just saying this because of the vid connection). It's also called No Bravery and it's an incredibly beautiful and heart wrenching story. It left me numb with the feeling of overwhelming grief. It's Bobby's POV and it takes place immediately after Sam's death in S2. I challenge you to read it and not be brushing away the tears. It's simply wonderful.

Speaking of which...

Community recs

Check out fic_art_remix. There's quite a number of works offered up on the Supernatural post. (It's multi-fandom so there are other posts also). You might see a fic, picspam, art or vid that you feel inspired to remix into another media. You might want to offer up some of your own work. Go on!

I spotted a new community today. It's called sd_recs. It's modeled on j2_recs. Which means the recs are made in themes. It's a great idea and a very straight forward method of recc'ing.

slaveexchange ::koff:: Man I hope some awesome fics and art come of of this one. Pweeeeasseee :D

(Sadly... sawedoff_recs closed its doors today. :( They provided many an awesome rec. So long and thanks for all the recs. <3 )


The thing about podfics is you can't be too particular about what you listen to. In that, the fics that you may normally be attracted to may not have been read by anyone. So you have to take what there is.

That's how I found Twists and Turns by tcs1121. It's read by chemm80 so I knew I had a good reader. It's AU J2 romance, with a huge slice of hurt!Jensen. Yep. I normally wouldn't read hurt!Jensen but this fic is wonderful. Jensen has a permanent disability that gives him a lot of pain. It's full of h/c and Jared is SO awesome. He's just how I imagine RL Jared to be. Bouncy, smart and full of life. A good, long listen. :)

Another fic that I might not normally click on is Green and Camboge by sevenfists. It's Sam/Dean, R. One word people.... GREMLINS! It's absolutely delightful! It's read by eosrose and her Gremlin voice is to die for. Give this a go. It's fun and sexy. (I just noticed this was written in 2007. Podfics = WIN!)

Life is kinda mad and hectic at the moment. I need (well, want..*g*) to finish my Jared vid but just no time../o\. Maybe this weekend. I want to do a remix (I'm thinking meta actually...) for fic_art_remix. I've signed up for spn_cinema AND I have 3 vids I want to start, like yesterday. I also have been blessed by getting a sneak peek of an author's work I love and have said I would "beta" it. I use that word lightly because...man, I am NOT a text beta. If it means getting an advanced peek though? Yep! I have no shame. *g*

Oh and then there's RL.

Eeeeh, thanks for pimping the comm! :D

(Also, our spn_cinema baby now has a working title, if you agree with it. *gg* Curious?)
1st-Sep-2011 02:20 pm (UTC)
Happy to! I think it's a great idea. :D

And HELL YES!! Curious much! *nods vigorously*
1st-Sep-2011 02:32 pm (UTC)
Ok, I'm thinking about "Echoes". It's simple, but I think it kinda fits. Your opinion? ;)
1st-Sep-2011 02:44 pm (UTC)
I love it! Yep yep... I'm seeing it already in the vid title.. ;D

oooh - and it's a multi-layered word too. So I can totally see how that will work.
1st-Sep-2011 02:47 pm (UTC)
YAY!! Our baby's got it's name, then? *gg*

oooh - and it's a multi-layered word too. So I can totally see how that will work.
Exactly! It's the title of a song I came across a few days ago, and I just thought YES THIS. ;)
1st-Sep-2011 03:17 pm (UTC)
Ooh song? Vidable song?
1st-Sep-2011 03:21 pm (UTC)
Probably not, it's Punk? *gg* YT link
3rd-Sep-2011 12:08 pm (UTC)
Just had a chance to listen!

YIKES! I think my editing program might implode using that song. :D

Actually, I'll probably use something similar to the theme music from the film. I'll have to take another listen to see what it's like. Something creepy and dark for sure..

3rd-Sep-2011 05:04 pm (UTC)
Thought so. ;) But I love the idea of using something similar to the theme! And YES creepy and dark. *rubs hands* I'm working my way through heaps of scores at the moment for something else, let me know if you want suggestions. Also, I've zeroed in on the Luther OST as a writing soundtrack for the fic, if you want that one, I'm probably going to up it later anyway... *gg*
4th-Sep-2011 04:16 am (UTC)
Ooh, you have a writing soundtrack? Cool. And yep. If you have a copy I'd love to hear it.

If it's helping with the fic then it might work well for the vid.
4th-Sep-2011 11:06 am (UTC)
Yeah. I never really did before, but after Big Bang, I've taken to pick a soundtrack for most things I sit on longer than one evening. ;) Helps setting the same mood every time.

*click here*; password is 'flist'. There's one song on there I can really imagine working well for the trailer... But I'm not gonna influence you. *gg* And it might look like an odd choice for a soundtrack to writing THAT fic, but if you put the songs into the right context, most of them are downright creepy. /twisted mind

Thanks! Downloading now. :)

YAY! Waht a lovely compliment to your vid! I've got the fic on my "to read" list - can't face something really heartbreaking right now, but must get around to it before the start of Season 7! Season 7 - where the hell did 7 years GO?

I don't read many S/D fics, don't know why, I get awful fussy about which ones make me happy, but the comm looks really interesting in how it's laid out, so I'll be watching that one as I know there are TONS of old and new fic I've never got around to reading and I like to pick and choose, so thanks for that link.

Hope you get some time to finish off your Jared vid, I know it's been a bit of a headache for you, so I do hope you get a little time to yourself to get it finished - along with everything else your doing! Shame - hm, is that even IN the dictionary around here? Hee!
3rd-Sep-2011 12:13 pm (UTC)
Hey hun.

Yeah.. the fic is beautifully heartbreaking. Of course, it doesn't end the way the fic suggests it does... as in the fic ends just before canon kicks in. It's a this could have happened if Dean didn't make the decision he did. Though..(damn I want to say what happens but that give it away..) um... I'll just say it ends up being the same thing in a round about way. (confusing much?!)

The comm should be interesting if they use the same format. I mean... I like to know more about what I click on and this style doesn't give reason for the rec, just that they cover the theme.

And Jared vid is finished! \o/ If all goes well I should be uploading to YT tonight. LJ tomorrow. :D

3rd-Sep-2011 01:49 pm (UTC)

Oh, my god, I just finished that fic and then stupidly went and read another one of theirs and I'm sitting here just crying now - amazing stuff, really brings home how much I loved those early seasons, nothing broke me as hard as those episodes did and now this author's done it all over again! *wails*

YAY! So pleased you got your vid done and I hope the other project to DVD got sorted ok for you.
3rd-Sep-2011 02:53 pm (UTC)
*hugs*... It's amazing isn't it? I am so glad you read it. It's tricky reccing a fic when it looks self serving but I found it SO moving and well written I just had to share it.

I had this enormous lump in my throat that didn't budge for ages when I read it. (and I read your review. You were certainly more eloquent than I was... <3)

Vid done. /o\ Oh man. I'm still not sure. It's my 13 year old brain. But it brings me so much joy when I watch it. If no one else likes it at least I can snuggle it and be content. :)

And other project did get sorted (finally!). I learned a heap in the process too.

That's too bad about sawedoff_recs -- it seems strange given what a broad mandate they had compared to more narrow rec communities. I'd think there was still so much out there.
3rd-Sep-2011 12:14 pm (UTC)

I'm not sure why they closed. I doubt it was from lack of material to rec. More about mods losing interest maybe? It take a lot of work to make recs I think.

4th-Sep-2011 05:57 am (UTC)
yay! No I'm gonna go check out the new comms :) Thanks hon!
4th-Sep-2011 02:12 pm (UTC)
Pleasure sweets.. <3

Wow! Thank you for the awesome rec! I'm so very glad you liked the Twists and Turns 'verse.

I'll be sure to let chemm80 know how much you enjoyed her podfic. You're right, she did a wonderful job.

Thanks again,

4th-Sep-2011 02:11 pm (UTC) - Re: This Magic Moment
You're welcome. :)

And I love chemm80. I listen to most of her recording.

*yikes* did I leave a comment to the actual fic? I think not. *slaps wrist* I meant to if I didn't. /o\ I'm glad you found the rec. I loved the story. The characterisations were great. I was sad when it was over.

5th-Sep-2011 05:49 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the rec and kind words, hon. I also enjoyed the story based on your vid and told the author so.
6th-Sep-2011 08:58 am (UTC)
Hey there,

I'm glad you saw this rec. I have been on my way to leaving a comment for you but, man.. I have been sidetracked.

I always enjoy your readings. I have just started the PBR 'verse. :D

And I'm glad you read the No Bravery story. I found it very moving.

Thanks again hun. And I'm sorry I didn't get over to your place to leave a comment. /o\
