fangirlism: (Christmas. :D #2)

Dear Festividder,

First off, thank you for making a vid just for me! I'm sure it'll be awesome!

I have a few general likes that don't seem to change, so we'll start with those:

What I Like
kid!fic/art/vids (as in, the characters have kids, not the character are kids - toddler age is perfect, though this doesn't work well in vids. Sad.), crushes/beginning of relationship (the concept of the feelings coming to fruition and both parties going, "WTF is going on? Why am I acting this way around him/her?" is one of my favorite fandom tropes), smut is always good, flirting.

What I Don't Like

Incest, bestiality and molestation are my only three sexual squicks, fandom has desensitized me to everything else. Character bashing. Yes, I'm generally a slasher but that doesn't mean I hate the female (or in the case of a femslash ship, male) characters (or, if I do, it's for reasons unrelated to "I ship his/her love interest with his/her best (fe)male friend and s/he gets in the way of the gay sex"). On that note, I also hate when writers completely disregard canon pairings. As much as I don't want them to, they exist. If you're gonna break them up, let us know how it happened. Please.

And now, specifics:

Requested Fandom #1: Alphas
Anything the vidder desires.
An ensemble vid of the cast being their awesome selves and showing off their skills.

This show is a new fandom for me, and I've been drawn to how awesome the cast is. I can't get enough of them, and I want their awesome, individually and together, showcased.

Requested Fandom #2: Ben 10
Anything the vidder desires.
Something Ben/Kevin, or something showing off Ben's powers.

I've recently decided to finish what I started and actually watch these series (I was originally watching Alien Force as it aired, and had to stop), and I was reminded what I loved about it the first time. Ben is a badass, Kevin is a badass, Gwen is HBIC, and well... slash goggles go on when it comes to Ben and Kevin. Anyhow, I promise it's not all about the slash goggles (see again the part about everyone being badasses).

Requested Fandom #3: Entourage
Anything the vidder desires.
My heart belongs to Vince/Eric, but a vid showing how awesome the cast is would be awesome too!

Entourage is an ideal fandom for me: a great cast, an engaging plot, HoYay, and pseudo-RPF! Like I mentioned, I love Vince/Eric (they hit all my OTP buttons!), but I can see how that wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea. Showing off everyone doing what they do best (which sometimes seems to be partying, drinking, and getting high) would be just as awesome for me.

Requested Fandom #4: Eureka
Anything the vidder desires.
Something with Fargo/Holly, showing off their geeky love.

THESE TWO! My boyfriend introduced me to Fargo/Holly by telling me they reminded him of us, and me, being a shipper, was addicted. They are the perfect geeky couple and just, gah! They play D&D, for Pete's sake! And Holly is played by the one of the ultimate geek girls, Felicia Day (who I now adore). I love them, they love each other, and a vid of their love would be, well, love. (And surprisingly, "love" still looks like a word.)

Requested Fandom #5: Never Let Me Go (Safety)
Anything the vidder desires.
An ensemble vid of the main three, or something Kathy/Tommy/Ruth

This movie, my heart. So many tears. Now, admittedly, my request seems a little redundant, but what I was hoping to go for a "I want the main three, but you don't have to make it shippy if you don't want to" vibe, since it could go either way. I just want to see something showcasing how close the three are (after all, <spoiler>Ruth totally stabbed Kathy in the back as a kid by asking Tommy out before Kathy could</spoiler>, and Kathy still gave her a second chance. That is love of some sort.

Requested Fandom #6: RPF - Backstreet Boys
Anything the vidder desires.
Anything Brian/Nick! I ship them like FedEx.

Of the fandoms I currently participate in, this one is my oldest. My love for these two date back all the way to my early teens (12 years and still going strong), and they're the entire reason every other one of my ships is of the "best friends who could be more" variety. They have shaped my entire fannish experience and I love them. Anything, and I mean anything, that you could potentially vid for these two would make my life.

Requested Fandom #7: The Sims
Anything the vidder desires.
Something Pascal/Nervous would be ideal, but anything showing off the Maxis premades would be love!

Well, this is an oddball request, and it was one I waffled on. I know what you're thinking, "How could I even vid for this?" But, game play footage, cut scenes, whatever you want. As I mentioned, I ship Pascal/Nervous (I play TS2 primarily, with dabbles in TS3 and TS1, though the original doesn't leave much in the way of storytelling), but all of the premades who don't get enough love in favor of people making their own Sims.

Requested Fandom #8: Zoolander (Safety)
Anything the vidder desires.
Something Derek/Hansel, or else something with Derek and Hansel being their lovable selves.

This is the fandom I keep getting reminded I love when holiday exchange time rolls around, as it gets no love otherwise. I almost wanna tell you to remind me why I love this cracktastic, silly, funny little movie, but... oh hell. Remind me why I love this cracktastic, silly, funny little movie.
