Fanvid: I Will Go Down With This Ship

I’m not even going to try to tag every fandom in this wonderful vid full of so many great ships! aceofwands included so many and managed to sync them to the song’s beats and lyrics so perfectly.

Blink and you might miss your OTP! This vid is worthy of so many rewatches.

Fanvid: Time Lords in Winter

I didn’t see the original vid, but I love this version of Lonely Pencil’s vid highlighting so many great moments from Christmas specials with Ten, Eleven, and Twelve.

Happy Wholidays indeed!

Fanvid: Captain Jack

Once upon a time, I had the brilliant idea to set a Torchwood fanvid to Billy Joel’s song “Captain Jack.” A few minutes later, I came to the conclusion that my vidding ideas are not creative/original in the least. Here’s hydroxicacid447, who had the idea long before I did. (Explicit language, character death)

There are a few moments when it’s pretty literal, but it works for this song.

Fanvid: The Greatest

This song by Sia was one of my wake-up songs this year. I love this vid by bironic celebrating some amazing characters of color in recent fandoms!

I could watch this on repeat for hours!

Fanvid: Starships

For my first Fanvid Friday, I went with one of my recent multi-fandom favorites: Starships by bironic. Wait, recent? How is it 7 years old already? (Explicit lyrics)

The wonder, excitement, terror, and fun of space fandoms are so beautifully synced with this upbeat song. And so many of my favorite starships are included.

Top Ten: Fandom Office Items

Being let go from my job allowed me to bring home the fannish items I had been keeping in my office. They are now merged back into my overall collection. Here’s a list of ten of those items. Welcome home, little ones! I missed you!

10 Fandom Items From My Office

1. Hawkeye FUNKO POP- My favorite Avenger was a wonderful present from a friend. I have an older series Hawkeye POP, and I didn’t want him to face an identity crisis seeing his Endgame Part 2 self, so I took him to work to guard my computer.

Awesome Con 2017- Day 3

Sunday, Day 3:
I got up a few minutes earlier and had no problem getting to the Convention Center by Metro. The headache I had was another story, but it wasn’t too bad. I got in line for Stan Lee by 9am and immediately made friends with the guy behind me in line who happened to be Ace as well. We had some wonderful discussions 🙂 It made the hour and change just fly right by. As the lines started winding around toward the main stage, I ran across another friend of mine.

Even though I could have had a pretty good seat, I sat at the back so I could slip out a little early if needed in order to get in line for Garrett Wang’s Q&A. I even considered skipping Stan Lee, but I’m glad I didn’t. Stan Lee can never die, but he’s definitely getting older, and I didn’t want to miss a chance to see him in person. But Garrett Wang portrayed my favorite character on Star Trek: Voyager. Decisions, decisions! My new line friend advised me to skip out as soon as the Q&A started.

Awesome Con 2017- Day 2

Saturday, Day 2:
I spent the night driving around dead bodies in the streets and saving my town and my daughter from tiny glowing balls that were trying to invade our bodies. So I woke up exhausted and shaken from my nightmare. But David Tennant was speaking at 10:30, so I got my butt out of bed. I hauled myself to the Metro and arrived at 8am. However, I just missed a train by 3 minutes and had to wait 17 minutes for the next one. Even worse, there was an issue with the trains when I tried to transfer and it was 40 minutes until the next Yellow train I needed arrived. So I didn’t get to the convention center until 9:35, which was when the doors were supposed to open for seating. As I arrived in the registration hall, I heard one of the best quotes of the con from one of the volunteers “David Tennant is by the garage door!” It was only to indicate that’s where the end of the line to see him currently was.

I hurried over to the pretty sizable line that was weaving from one side of the room to the other. I heard my name called and turned to see a friend from grad school I hadn’t seen in over 10 years! It’s great running into people at cons, but I was still in my one track mind of “must get to end of line!” During the next hour, nearly the entire room filled up with the line and, as far as I saw, every one of the 5,000 seats ended up being filled. The line volunteers were amazing, though, packing us all in there and keeping order. They would say things like “Welcome to the line! This is all part of the experience!” and “You’re doing great! You’re almost there!” VIPS got in first. Not including them, I think I was about a third of the way from the front. There was a WHOLE LOT of line behind me; I cannot imagine much of that portion got in.

My Christmas tree is a mix of ornaments from my childhood and ones from later on in my life. Many of them are related to my favorite fandoms, naturally. I thought I would showcase one every other day in December in a 12 Days of Fandom Ornaments series.

Thing Thursday: Doctor Who Stamps

Here’s what I did with my Doctor Who stamps. Originally, I had the sonic screwdriver inside the frame with it… but then I realized that didn’t give me quick access to it if I need to use it. So now it lives on top.
