What Might We Deduce About His Heart by EditedByRents
[Post-Reichenbach] Sherlock character study with a side of grieving John. Lovely editing and an interesting Sherlock/London element. (Music: The Cottage on the Beach by Dario Marianelli (Atonement OST))

Off I Go by caminolte
Great Sherlock character study, I especially love the progression of the vid and all the different facets of Sherlock's personality. (Music: Off I Go by Greg Laswell)

A Magic Trick by NolaEspoir
[Reichenbach/Post-Reichenbach] Long (6 minutes) but interesting vid explaining how Sherlock was able to fool John with his death using the drug from Baskervilles. Well executed.(Music: Song For Bob by Nick Cave & Warren Ellis (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford OST))

I Was Looking For A Breath of Life by Ideducedit
[Reichenbach] Great video about how John needed Sherlock in his life to make it interesting. (Music: Breath of Life by Florence + The Machine)

Animus Vox by caminolte
Glorious editing porn. (Music: Animus Vox by The Glitch Mob)

Moriarty - One Wish by Vatufe
Very nice Moriarty vid. I think the reason I like it so much is that the audio part is made from quotes and music from the show so it gives the vid a more, I don't know, intimate feel?

The Fall by dodo00228
[James Bond crossover] Ok, I have to admit that I'm not really sure of what's happening in this video but I still really like it. The crossover scenes are well done and I love all the bits with Lestrade.

The Reichenbach Anthem by Moriarteaanyone
[Reichenbach] Fast editing and a nice change from all the slow Reichenbach vids.(Music: Hero by Skillet)

Medicine by CrazyBoutBillie
[Post-Reichenbach] Lovely vid about John grieving and Sherlock returning. I love the mood the song creates as well as the scene between John and Molly, a relationship that doesn't feature much in fanvids (or on the show, really). (Music: Medicine by Daughter)

Outsider by duchesscloverly
[Mycroft/Lestrade] I'm not really into Mystrade (except for Pru's girl!Lestrade fic, which I adore) but I do enjoy the occasional fanart/vid about them. I thought this was very well done as well as being quite sad. I also enjoyed Those Things You Do by the same vidder, who you should check out for more Mystrade vids. (Music: Outsider by Will Young)

Mission Impossible by Radculas
The vidder says it's a trailer mashup but there's no dialogue from the M:I trailer so it might just be the music? I'm not sure. Anyway, the important bit is that it's a Mission Impossible AU (kind of) and it's a great action vid. I tought the scene where Mycroft explains the case was very well edited.

I am currently working on another rec post but I thought these two vids deserved their own post. Yes, they are that good.

I meant to insta-rec the first when I watched it in april, I don't know what happened. Anyway, it's called (22)1BR/1BA and it was made by [ profile] purplefringe. It's a post-Reichenbach vid about how John copes with Sherlock's death. It is amazing and it might possibly be my all time favourite vid about John Watson. There are no words to describe how much I love it but I still managed to leave a comment to the vidder that captures part of why I love the vid: "I like the tone of the vid, how it shows a John who is lost and sad and lonely, who doesn't really know what to do but is trying to figure it out." Check it out, take a moment to contain your feelings, and let the vidder know how brilliant their vid is.

Before presenting the other one, let me tell you about my Sherlock dream vids of which there are three. I want a post-Reichenbach vid about Sherlock bringing down Moriarty's web, a vid about Mycroft being all mysterious and powerful, something stylish with international intrigues and finally, a vid about the relationship between Sherlock and Mycroft.

The next rec is exactly what I wanted dream vid #3 to be. It is called Corner of Your Heart and it is by a new vidder called forexitsigns. It is absolutely gorgeous and heartbreaking and gives me all of the Holmes brothers feels. It even has young!Sherlock&Mycroft! Watch it, shower the vidder with praise and then run to their other Holmes bros vid, Time Spent. Once you feel like your heart might burst from all the Holmes feels, leave a comment to tell them what an amazing vidder they are. Seriously, guys, there are three comments in total and two of them are mine. Surely I cannot be the only one who thinks these vids are brilliant.

I guess this is going to be a thing now? I don't know, I just have a lot of feelings about Sherlock that I need to share in rec form. I read very few fics last year, so some of the recs are a bit old but I separated them so that you didn't have to go through things you read ages ago.

Fics and vids under the cut! )
yesnotoaster: (Sherlock - Thinking)
Let me ruin Valentine's Day by posting this heartbreaking Sherlock fanvid.

It's based on Alone On the Water by MadLori, a fic in which Sherlock gets sick and dies. The fic is almost one year old, but I had never heard of it until last week. The few snippets I've read on Tumblr made me tear up so when someone posted the vid I was wary. I waited 24 hours before giving in and watching it.

It made me cry, you guys.

I wasn't going to read the fic because I tend to avoid this type of story (thinking about Yellow Means Slow still makes me sad) but now I know that I can never, ever, read it because it will kill me. (Watch out for the inevitable "OMG I read it and now I want to die" update later this week.)

Anyway, sorry for ruining your day. I'll try to make it up to you later today.

Vid Rec

Two years ago, I stumbled across my first fanvid. It was a Spuffy vid and while I was not a fan of this ship, I had a huge crush on Spike. After watching it, I downloaded all the vids that were on the site. At the time, vids were, to me, just a mean to watch Spike scenes that I hadn't seen before (I watched the show in French, I was one or two seasons behind). Cool music was a bonus.

Later, when I was obsessing over LotR and Elijah Wood, I came across a Boromir/Aragorn vid using the song Come What May. That's when I realized two things. The first was that vids could be funny, especially when serious movie characters seemed to be singing love songs to each other. The second was that I really liked Boromir. Contrary to the Buffy vids, I still like that vid a lot. It always makes me smile.

After having downloaded a couple of humorous LotR (movie and cast) vids, I was left with nothing new to watch. I tried some HP vids, but Harry/Draco is not as much fun in vids as it is in fics or fanarts.

Some times later, I discovered Smallville, and wow, I had never downloaded so many vids. That's when I discovered that vids were not just pretty moving pictures or funny scenes with music. (Although there's nothing wrong with these two kind of vids, they're still a lot of fun) They're so much more than that. They can be pretty and shiny and fun and make you want to watch them over and over again. They can be simple and move you in ways that the song or the scene alone could not do. They can put an interesting twist to a song and make you giggle insanely every time you hear it (especially embarrassing when it happens in a public place ^.^). Vidders can take scenes you've seen a million time and put them together to create a story that will blow you away! Sometimes, a good vid is almost as good as a fic, story-wise.

I love vids!

When I started this journal, the first thing I wanted to do was to rec all the vids I loved. I never did it, I'm not sure why, but yesterday I had a vid craving and I went hunting. What I found was a vid genre that is not as popular as others, but which I find extremely cool: Trailers! The kind of vids you wish you could watch on the WB. The kind of vids that would make people want to watch Smallville. That's what I'm reccing today.

I'll start with the two I found yesterday, The End of the Beginning and Trailer Season 4. The first one is about Chloe and the Luthors, something a lot of people on TWOP would love to see. The second one is about relationships in the third season and what's going to happen in the 4th. It gave me chills the first time I saw it. Both are very good, the music is fantastic and if I wasn't already watching Smallville, I'd start watching now. They can be found here.

Kryptonix is the first one of the genre I ever saw. It's absolutely fantastic! The music, the scenes, the Lex scene... It's more about the action side of the show, the kind of vid I'd show to my male friends to make them watch Smallville.

Aquarium is a season 1 homage using episodes stills, but it's...I don't know, it makes *me* want to watch the first season, I don't know if it'd work with SV virgins. I think it's worth a try.

There was another another one I wanted to rec, but I can't find it. It was the SV credits using the theme from Young Frankenstein. If you know what I'm talking about and have a link, could you give it to me?

[ETA: If you have a vid to rec, don't hesitate and give me a link : )]
