Holiday is made of awesome. Enjoying my beautiful nephew and I'm loving catching up with my family. :D

Watched an ep of Sons of Anarchy last night with my sis and discovered she's a bit of a fan (first time I've even seen it. Wow... intense). She wondered if there were some good fan vids out there? I could do a YT search but I'd rather show her some really good ones. I've been talking about vidding and fandom and how awesome people are at making things. I've also mentioned slash (hee... nothing like coming clean about what I like to read...) and she's totally cool to see any SoA slash vids (if they exist?). I'd love some recs if you have any.

Speaking of reading...

Just finished reading checkthemargins When It Happens (and the two follow up fics). A-MAZING! It's gut wrenching and powerful and Sam's hurt is made even more brutal by not knowing exactly what happened. But the boys' relationship is beautiful and believable and makes all the hurt bearable. (The most recent installment, may not be for the faint hearted though, so check the warnings). Oh boys. :(( Oh fic... \o/

How's the new lj cut scissors? I suppose that might be helpful for newbies to LJ. *shrugs*

Do you recommend SoA? I have it sitting waiting to be watched but have been too scared?
13th-Apr-2012 10:52 pm (UTC)
I don't know if I recommend it yet. I saw that one episode but I had no idea what was going on. It was very intense. From what my sister said (and others commenting here and about the place) it's definitely a show I want to try. It looks interesting.

It on my list! :)

I love Sons of Anarchy! If it's ok to do a self rec, I made a SoA vid for festivids. It's not slash, though. You can find it here (spoilers for all episodes). Unfortunatelly I don't know of any other vids. I searched for SoA vids on youtube once but the ones I clicked on were blocked for me, so after a while I gave up.

Yay.. thank you for the rec! That was great. Even knowing nothing about the show it gave me a glimpse and looks like one I wouldn't mind trying.

Thanks... I'll be showing my sis.

Thank you, glad you like it :) Have fun should you decide to watch the show!

I'm thinking gentlesideoffury has made a SoA vid. I know she loves that show. Also you might check on ETV to see if any vidders have submitted SoA vids there.

:::edit::: I just checked and here's gentle's SoA vid. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjd3OHHO5VU

That was great! Thanks so much for the link. Wow... it sure looks like an intense show.

Thanks so much for the link hun.

Oh, I didn't realise there was another installment for When It Happens *reads*

I agree, the series is A-MAZING!
13th-Apr-2012 11:51 pm (UTC)
Yes... and it explains a few things... *sob*

I can't believe it took me so long to find the stories.

SLauveng makes SoA vids and has posted some of them to the ETV forum. It's the forst I'd heard of the show, but her vids are really very good. :)

14th-Apr-2012 01:01 am (UTC)
Thanks! I should have thought to check ETV.

14th-Apr-2012 01:32 am (UTC)
I think she has a lot more on Youtube, but you can find her account from there. :)

I LOVE SOA so much! You should really watch it! It's so freaking good. I don't take part in the fandom, though, really, because I don't ship anyone on the show. Although I did write a 79k Dean/Jax crossover, but I doubt your sister would be interested in that :D
14th-Apr-2012 01:03 am (UTC)
It looks really interesting. I definitely think I'm going to check it out.

Although I did write a 79k Dean/Jax crossover, but I doubt your sister would be interested in that :D

Hee, no. But I might! (Now that I actually know who Jax is. And what he looks like...*swoon* I can so see him has a match for Dean...)

I'm telling you, if Sam isn't around, Dean and Jax are MFEO. Perfect. And they are hot like burning together.

Here's a link and a summary if you wanna read it:


AU set post an almost-canon S5 of SPN. Still reeling from the loss of Sam, Dean finds himself on a hunt in Charming, CA. Through circumstance, he finds himself allying with Jax Teller and the Sons of Anarchy motorcycle club. As the hunt continues and Jax and Dean get closer, they discover what’s happening in Charming is even bigger than anyone thought. The fate of the world may depend on their choices—and whether or not they both make it out of this alive.

Also, there's a lot Sam/Dean and Sam, actually, in the fic. No dissing of the OTP *G*
14th-Apr-2012 01:16 pm (UTC)
Wow... sounds awesome!

Most definitely will check it out. :D

Thanks so much hun. Sounds awesome

(Hee... no dissing the OTP! *BG*)

Yes--come to the dark side! SoA was only my second fandom ever, the only one I've written extensively in, other than SPN. I haven't really explored the vid aspect of that fandom much at all, and I've found that the quality of writing in SoA is overall pretty poor, but I can certainly hook you up with some SPN/SoA crossover fic written by great SPN authors like Sylvanwitch and TheNyxie.

Anyway, the show is kind of "in your face" so if you're bothered by harsh realism you might not like it. On the other hand, it's the only show in...ever...that's really had me on the edge of my seat for nearly every episode of every season, anxious to know what happens next. And I think it's very appealing to fans of Supernatural because of what it has to say about family, and about how far we'll go for the ones we love, and about living outside the bounds of "normal." Hence all the crossover slash fic I've written. *g*

I think the dark side is beckoning..

I actually like harsh realism (as long as it's not too "soapy"). From what everyone has said it sounds like something I'll like. My sis is lending me her DVD's so I can start watching.

Have to podficced any of your crossover slash fic by any chance? My reading time is SO limited...hence my voracious appetite for podfic.

A bit. My friend Riverbella has done Body Work, the first story in my longest series, which is porny Dean/Jax with a side order of storyline. I also recorded Fortunate Son, which is Sam/Jax, but there's now a sequel (both written for sn_crossbigbang) that hasn't been recorded yet. I've been thinking of reading the entire Body Work 'verse in myself, and maybe making an audiobook of the two stories in the FS verse. I guess now might be a good time, with Amplificathon going on, and with the way that challenge privileges crossovers in terms of scoring.

Also, if you're interested in the crossover, Sylvanwitch has an incredible Biker 'verse that is sort of a dark-ish, post-apoc world, that features Dean/Jax in a long-term relationship. Her stuff is f*locked for personal reasons, but I'm sure she'd add you, no problem, if you're not already on her list. The only reason I haven't podficced this 'verse yet is that I know she's still working on it, and in fact, has another installment (possibly the last?) in editing right now.
