Fandom makes life brighter  
I'm super-anxious this week as we'll likely (finally) find out whether we have to move or not. But fandom's proving very effectively distracting.

Battlestar Galactica
I read a superlatively wonderful and poignant Lee/Kara fic last night that's still haunting me--it's Lee's pov, and the characterisation's spot-on. Highly recommended! A Sunny Day in Tartarus.

I don't often get my Clois-fondness satisfied, but shopfront has written a very cute Clois fic. And as if that wasn't enough, lucky_biatch made an adorable Clois vid. Awww, Smallville!

And no, I'm not completely neglecting the Clex! ;-) bipolypesca's posted a lovely constructed-reality happy Clex vid, which made me go 'aww', and also made me giggle. *g*

Tomorrow is ANZAC Day, Australia's commemoration of getting our asses whipped at Gallipoli. Which means I get to spend the day at home, vidding! \o/ Hooray for mid-week public holidays! And I might walk Bob Bob to the dawn service...
Current Location: work (sadly)

I'm so happy fandom is making you happy. I'll definitely check out those vids the next time I have free time at work. And yay for holidays!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you get to stay in your place, and that the new folks don't raise the rent. Good luck!

Oh, I've resigned myself to a rent hike. It's inevitable. But if we get to stay, I don't care. *crosses fingers*

I hope the house thing all works out. :(

+ yay for happy fandomness! I've grown very fond of watching vids, idk why.

Ohh, thanks, Becky!

Vids are wonderful, wonderful things. *nods* Feel free to rec me any faves you find! ;-)

That bsg fic is pretty damn good, eh? There should be more fic.

Yeah, totally! I was quite blown away by it.

"spend the day at home, vidding?" *ears perk up*

Thanks for the recs. I've come to terms with spoiling myself for this season via vids because the SV fandom has some awesome vidders (especially Clex, which is 90% of why I watch the show) and I hate not keeping up!

Fandom can be wonderfully distracting. :) I hope things turn out ok!

Hee! I'm determined to make some headway with some BSG vids today, yes.

Aww, I hope you get the chance to see Season 6 soon. The prettiness of Oliver cannot be underestimated! ;-) And every time we think the Clex has subsided, it comes back with a vengeance...

Which means I get to spend the day at home, vidding!

Woohoo! I'm so excited. Ergh. Must be patient. But yay holidays!

BTW, "It's Our Job" was definitely one of my Lee-mourning songs on my "Kara LIVES" mix...:D

Yes, I'm settled on a Lee vid and I'm determined to make some headway with it today. But playing with it last night, I think it's going to be pretty demanding--a couple of weeks work probably. Not the couple of days I blasted 'Road rage' out in.

Have you posted Keats yet?! *bounces*
Dionusia: they eye-frakked as they do-si-do'ddionusia on April 25th, 2007 08:38 am (UTC)
Whew, it's done at last. Thanks again for all of your help. *whirls you in a square dance of joy*

And wow, I'm always impressed by how much time vidding takes. The payoff is very welcome, but I really appreciate all the hard work that goes into making one!

Good luck with the housing situation, too. I hope you're having a nice holidy.

OMG how tired can I be? That's the fifth typo I've let go today. Time to turn in, clearly. :)

Hooray! \o/ Congratulations!

Yeah, vidding be slooow. Especially when you're me. And when you make one with lots of clips and fast cuts--which I'm doing. But some progress is being made... admittedly a teenie amount when you consider that I've spent 12 hours on it, at least, but still... *stares at timeline* Yup, there's something there!

Fingers crossed we don't have to move--if so, the vidding will proceed much faster since I won't have to spend my weekends househunting...
