Mechanic!Gwen by [livejournal.com profile] yue_ix
SFW; art; Gwen
So, this is not a picture of Morgana. There is a distinct lack of Morgana. It is gorgeous, though, so I am reccing it. It's made up of these wonderful warm colours and features steampunk!mechanic!Gwen. It's lovely. I love the sketchy poster background and the dragon. I love how clearly Gwen this person is.

On Swefnum, Incuthra Eorthan by [livejournal.com profile] srin
Rating: PG; 1,300 words; Gwen/Morgana, hints of Arthur/Merlin, various
Summary: Morgana sleeps, and sees other facets of the archetypes in her life.
Morgana dreams of the Arthurian multiverse. It's fun and funny and touching and wonderful. It's this great mix of things, silly and serious, joyful and sad. (There's some good critique in it, too!)

Remember Me As A Time Of Day by [personal profile] such_heights
Rating: PG-13; 1,400 words; Gwen/Morgana
In an open field, under a morning sky, two women sleep.
Gorgeous amnesia!fic, elegant and moving. It's kind of ridiculously pretty, like a quiet sad song. There are some really fantastic lines in this; it's excellent fic.

Blood Makes Noise by [personal profile] avendya
This vid is a really fantastic look at Morgana and the place that she finds herself in. The song choice is excellent. I have a lot of love for the message of this vid, what it portrays and the way that it explores Morgana's motivations; it does an excellent job of getting its message across.

This, essentially, is what I have bookmarked in the last 24 hours. I am usually slow to rec, something which has been commented on obliquely in the past. So, now, I forge new territory in my adventurer's scarf.

Stargate: Atlantis
I find people with electrical and/or mechanical components fascinating. This is a cyberpunk AU art, and it is gorgeous and I am filled with great love for the title.

Fandom
I have a love of costuming and strange things. Accordingly, this amuses me greatly. I am, however, slightly disturbed by the tattoos.

And No One Exists Alone by Philipa Moss
Four Weddings and a Funeral
Rating: PG
My fondness for this and essentially fic written in this fandom tends to get all tangled up in my fondness of and frustration with canon. It's a story about how Matthew and Gareth met, and it's lovely.

A Narrow Bridge by [livejournal.com profile] kassrachel
Stargate: Atlantis
Rating: R
This is the Yeshiva* AU, as such, it's essentially set in a universe I know next to nothing about. [The location is not incidental to the story, so I spent a fair bit of my time reading this being kind of fascinated at the religious parts of the story, (religion is a thing of great mystery to me) and that culture. I got something that I hadn't before.] It works really well.

Merlin
Oh, this is pretty and jazzy and sexy. There's this gorgeous stuttery-ness to it in places, like someone can't stay fixed in one place, like they're a little overwelmed.
(Song: Dawna by Morphine)

Merlin
Rating: PG
It's a very cute and happy and wonderful little story. There is a dragon in it, which endears it to me to no end. It's all so wonderfully sweet and there are these utterly charming little bits of humour threaded throughout.

10,000 Nights of Thunder by [livejournal.com profile] mamoru22
Merlin gives everything Arthur throws at him right on back ('cause he's just ace like that). It's a wonderful, happy, flowy vid that bounces right along with its incredibly happy song. There are a lot of "Arthur's face! It is wonderful!" moments for me in this (0:23, 0:57, and 1:45 are especially nice). Overall reaction to this vid, is generally: *squishes them*
(Song: 10,000 Nights by Alphabeat)

Unsteady Ground by [livejournal.com profile] cherryice
It's the more sinister side of Camelot, the danger and darkness that are all tangled up with magic and morality there. It's gorgeous, and quite casual in it's beauty. The transitions are fascinating to watch, and the interplay of the visual and audio is nice. "Haunting" is a good word, and I've quite fallen in love with the song at this point.
(Song: Unsteady Ground by Catherine Feeny)

Red by [livejournal.com profile] obsessive24
Like Unsteady Ground it's another shot of the legend proper, and a reminder of what that legend is. It's gorgeous, and for a while that was all I knew about the vid; I had this sense that there was something it was trying to show me beyond the little snatches I was getting. It does not lend itself to the sort of tongue in cheek summaries I'll sometimes do of books and films. I took notes through one of my many viewings, (because, yes, I am that person,) and, among everything else, I've got "Merlin" written down multiple times and repeatedly underscored to add emphasis to the one word sentences it kept popping up in.
(Song: Red by Elbow)

Ack!

Dreamwidth is apparently set to launch closed beta February First.

Also: I have just read the beginning of another Merlin fic. So, this is twice now that I've merrily stumbled into reading before going "AAAAAAAGH! Merlin fic! Back, back ye great beastie!" I can't fully express my reasons for not wanting to read this right now, that's just the way it is. I suspect some day soon I will have read my first fic without my trying to; I'll have hit the end before having snapped out of it.

Gloriously, though, there is possible conversion: I lured my ex-fiancée into watching the first episode with promises of slash and The Bitch Prince vid. She made the Harry/Draco comparison, which totally works; it's kind of awesome.

Tear You Apart by [livejournal.com profile] bradcpu
Firefly
The happiest ship in the world made bloody disturbing. It explores a very interesting idea. I love the use of secondary footage in this vid.
(Song: Tear You Apart by She Wants Revenge)

Handlebars by [livejournal.com profile] flummery
Doctor Who
The video synchs with the lyrics of the audio in all sorts of wonderful ways. It is, by turns, wonderfully amusing and frigheningly true in the story it tells. It reminds me of a number of the doctor's more scary aspects and the ending is perfect.
(Song: Handlebars by Flobots)

The Bitch Prince by [livejournal.com profile] wistful_fever
Merlin
Arthur is such a bitch. The vid's incredibly pretty and rather well structured. Much of what I like about the show is here.
(Song: Bitch by Meredith Brooks)
