I finished another job, so I got time for fanart again. Also started to do what I've been meaning to do for ages and dig through my unwatched-vids folder. vid recs:Sober

A Ronon tribute; characters: Ronon and ensemble
A fascinating in-depth character study that explores Ronon and his past. I want to watch it a couple more times to catch all the nuances but I wanted to come here and rec it right away. lunabee34
wrote a very interesting analysis of the vid. (link)Rodney's Despair
gen; Rodney and ensemble; angst/drama; song: Gravity of Love by EnigmaSummary:
Rodney struggles with all the losses in the past, with all the dead he feels responsible for.
Great character study; my eyes were glued to the screen! I like how she shows Rodney confronted with loss and tragic mistakes without turning him into a total woobie.
Made by the evil genius who created Muppets In Atlantis, Be A Rockstar, and The Lost Button, which are completely different in tone of course. Check out Chayiana's vid archive
.One-Night Fandoms: A Tribute to Yuletide
I got so inspired by this vid, I was *this* close to signing up for yuletart. (Deadline happens to be tonight.) But the thing is, when I'm trading art I really like to get fic in return... Well, I still have a few hours to make up my mind.
But speaking of Yuletide, here's another Drop the Dead Donkey
fic from the Yuletide archives, which I loved for its sharp, three-dimensional portrayal of the characters:Sensible Silk Shirts
by Kanna-Ophelia (Drop the Dead Donkey)
Joy/Helen (plus ensemble); PG-13; humor/romance (well, as romantic as it can get... we are talking about Joy here.); 4,700 words
Sunday 31st August, 1997. Globelink rises to the broadcasting crisis with their usual ruthless efficiency, and in any case, other news is far more distracting.
Reading all the DtDD fic (well, three, but I thought there was none!) reminded me how much I loved this show, so I went to Amazon UK just now and bought all six seasons. This is a good time to buy DVDs... in many cases it's actually cheaper for me to buy them there than to rent them here.
more fic recs, SGA
:The Unfinished Project
gen; PG; team; ~3600 wordsSummary:
A missing village and an unexpected find leaves the team trapped and injured. Rodney must risk everything to save them.
Plotty genfic with lovely team interaction, written for the prompt: When technology gets angry.Icky Girl Germs! ZOMG!!1ELEVENTY!1!!
John/Rodney, Rodney/Sam, with a dash of OT5; Crack!Meta, south-park style (image heavy)
Rofl! That is all. ('cuz if laughter is better than tears it also beats banging your head against the keyboard.)
is putting together a Lists of Episode-Related Fanworks
(gen only; fic, art, and vids). She writes: This is WIP and I am still working my way through various archives, however, if you know of fics, artwork or song vids that are not on these lists, I am more than happy for you to contact me (preferably with the url).
She's already got a pretty comprehensive list of episode-related genfic. I thought for some eps I'd read all the tags that are out there, but I was proved wrong. :)
