I think my favorite scene is the one where Max roughs up the hotel concierge for demanding a percentage of the earnings of the prostitutes who pass through.

This show was so magical in so many subtle ways.

is anyone else not getting dreamwidth comments?

A Dark Angel Max/Alec first time heat!fic! Sweet, hot as hell, and perfect.

Oh, I should add - I enjoyed this John/Sherlock fic, which takes a different approach to depicting the Holmes clan.

Day 5 - A vid everyone should see at least once

giandujakiss: (festivids)
Okay, so by now I've seen most - though not all - of the Festivids, because I was lucky enough to get a head start :-) (yes, I know who made them, okay? I KNOW). And I am not kidding when I say you should watch each and every one of them. I'm really quite amazed at how consistently good they all are (although in wildly different ways). And the source! I mean, there are vids with this gorgeous source you've never seen before, and then ugly-as-hell source but dear God, remember when television looked like that? And then there're all the vids to sources you always thought would make an amazing vid, and now you know - or source where you think my god, why didn't I realize how amazing that would be to vid, or source where, you'd have sworn it was unviddable, but you would be wrong, and just plain source where there are a few existing vids but you knew there needed to be more and hey! Now there are.

But this isn't like Yuletide, where there are something like 500 million stories, so that you can do a rec list of 100 and it's still not obvious which one's yours. If I went through and rec'd everything I loved, I'd essentially be outing myself. So I can't do that (unless I was wily and rec'd myself, which ... I am not going to do). So I'm saving a bunch of recs until after the reveal.

For now, though, I can't help but jump up and down and squee about just a teeny taste of what's good. And I can't emphasize this enough: it doesn't matter if you don't know the source. Hell, I don't know the source for many of these - you still should watch them.

I have to start with the vid that was made just for me: Sleepwalker (Profit). I love this show, which is about how pretty Adrian Pasdar is how a man who was literally raised by television as a child turned into a soulless monster who schemes his way through the corporate world. This vid is perfectly Profit - it's creepy and spooky and weird and in a million years I would never have paired Adam Lambert with this show but wow, that totally works. Like, not even in a cracky way - it works for real.

Other vids you should totally watch while you're, you know, watching everything:
