Festivids Recs

children's work by lithiumdoll
Life [character study]
Reese character study and Reese/Charlie relationship study. I've been watching verius female led cop shows recently, but this just makes it clear, none of them had a patch on Dani Reese.

breakable by killabeez
Catch and Release [yummy happy]
Lovely sum-up of the movie. Feelings and love and friendship and YUM.

so bohemian like you by proofpudding
Clueless
Perfect song choice, lovely cuts, especially in the first half, great clip matching to lyrics. Guaranteed to put a smile on your fave.

hot in herre by sweetestdrain
Cabaret
Oh this is good, the change-over is very well done.

blue lips by vesperregina
The Fall
Utterly gorgeous. Dreamy and epic, just like the film.

firework by dogstar
Whip It
Great song choice.

new in town by bop_radar
Whip It
Fun, bouncy, (skate-y) vid.

fixing a hole by legoline
The King's Speech
Great editing - on the beat cuts and well chosen clips. Clever song choice.

ooh la la by purplefringe
Moulin Rouge
Lovely editing, lots of movement and colour

I'm still here by dragonchic
How to Train Your Dragon
Very fast paced, basically a love-letter to flying, lots of fun.

the fear by laura shapiro
Misfits [character study]
Alicia character study, lyrics very neatly tied into the narrative.

what a man by sisabet
Pride and Prejudice (BBC 1995)
HAHA, omg the bit at 1.12? Slayed me. Funny, lighthearted Darcy/Lizzie vid.

friendship and courage and whatever by dogstar
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
I haven't seen the movie, but I figured the source was fun and shiny enough that watching a vid would still be fun, and it definitely was, lots of sharp cuts, on the beat lots of movement, lots of colour.

everything comes and goes by greensilver
Tangled
Absolutely gorgeous - all that glowing golden hair and magic.

shine by fan_eunice
Thelma and Louise
Utterly epic. Wonderful, heartbreaking. The best, most tragic friendship ever. Very neatly narrates the snowballing way everything happens in the film.

silver moon, black dog by thingswithwings
Discworld live action
Susan Sto Helit
Susan is the BEST. Also her hair.

contracts by genusshrike
Wanted
Fast, fun, actioner vid. Quite intense and angsty towards the end, good pacing.

(part 1 and part 3 are my favourites)
Die Hard
Zeus/John
IDEK. This is hilarious I think I died. And Zeus' voice is spot on, it's great.

hellfire by norgbelulah
Justified
Raylan, Boyd [intoxicated!fic] [friendship]
This is amazing, I love the backstory. Boyd is brilliant, perfectly IC. I love his insight into their relationship.

redeemed and summoned by name by on_any_ledge
Justified
Raylan/Boyd [intoxicated!fic] [hotness]
So hot.

I Read on a Hillside Gravestone: The Sweetest Thing You Ever Heard by norgbelulah
Justified
Boyd (/) Raylan
I love this, it's understated, but there's a lot of emotion running through it. Really great Boyd.

our bones are broken still by firefly_crush
TVD
Katherine/Klaus/Elijah
Really gorgeous. I love the dynamics of the relationship, but most especially the way there's a brilliant character study of Katerina/Katherine running through it all.

shelter by passe_simple
Jesse/Andrew RPF Shelter![AU]
MOST GOERGOUS ADORABLE FIC EVER, the emotional tied up in knots that Jesse does, the neuroses and the stress, and Edaurdo's utter adorableness and the hot sex. UNF. I really love the characterisation, everyone's got flaws, everyone fucks things up in their own little ways, it's so gorgeous and human

upon the heath by ohnvm
TSN
Mark/Eduardo [intense]
Definite emotional kick here. Leaves you feeling all fluttery and breathless.

buyer's remorse by silviakundera
TSN
Sean, Eduardo/Mark
Sean's characterisation is just awesome, self centred and crazy and basically adorable. Love the outsider pov on Eduardo and Mark

the oldest game by anon
Sherlock
Mycroft/Lestrade [hooker!au] [dubcon]
My rec is this: me doing the mycroft/lestdrade dance, me doing the hooker!fic dance Me doing the dubcon, secret identity dance. Me doing the all my kinks are getting hit dance. This fic caused a lot of dancing, is what I'm saying.

learn to wear each other well by sinuous curve.
Sherlock
Mycroft/Lestrade [pitch perfect]
Hot, sexy, yummy tense build to the ship. Great characterisation, Mycroft, being all intelligent and awesome, but still akward with the whole other-people thing. Best of all though, is the prose, word choice is gorgeous and rich, but never enough to lose you in description. Perfect balance.

call me by his name by sinouous_curve
XMFC
Erik/Charles [emotional kick]
Hot and delicate and lots of gorgeous twisty emotional drama. I love the way Charle's POV is brought to life. The angst and pain of the injury, the repercussions, the blame, is put centre stage in a way that's very honest and real. They're gorgeous and so crushingly tragic.

enjoying an indifferent domescity by sinuous_curve
XMFC
Charles/Erik
Crazy hot. Love the look into Charles' psyche. The hold s_c has on the characters is phenomenal, all that thinkiness and super hot sex as well? Wowza.

ready for the deepest by iphignia939
XMFC
Irene/Raven [au]
This is gorgeous. I'd recomend reading the other Irene AUs [livejournal.com profile] iphignia939's written, to get an idea of the character, but it porbably works as a standalone/with comic book knowledge. I really like her outsider's perspective on Erik. And I like the thinkiness on what it would be like to be precognitive.

just a face on a train bykatheryne
Spiderman
Gen, [outsider pov]
kinda adorable. And hey, ffnet, good can come from the pit of despair, whoda thunk? I was all teary eyed by the end. TOO ADORABLE. I WANT TO WATCH SPIDERMAN ALL OVER AGAIN.

one sister have I in our house by astro_knight
Discworld
Esme Weatherwax
Yes to this forever. wonderful character study, Lily and Esme and who she is. Love it.

tomorrow belongs to me by valtyr
Captain America
Steve/Tony [epic]
Epic and wonderful. Just go read it


Thor

Everything by astolat, LOTS OF YUMMY DUB CON. ALSO, WIN.

my body is a cage by walks by herself
Loki/Thor [au]
I like how Loki is a lot more stable in this. The lack of lies in his upbringing, knowing his place, still him, still clever and tricky and angsty but not so fucked up and bitter.

shatter by Aria
Loki/Thor
Been recced all over and with good cause, it's a gorgeous Loki POV character study. I like the gen beginning the ship is good, but it's all about Loki really.

stitch by illwynd
Loki/Steve
AW, Steve is so damn epic. I like the treatment of the stitches. Very painfully real.

can't go back the same way you came by pellucere Loki gen [pulling on the heartstrings]
Lovely character study, is effectively what Avengers could be had Loki chosen humility not pride. I WISH THIS WAS CANON. Nice slow build, Loki is coming from a very cold, broken and sad place.

telephone by anon
Loki, Cap, Thor [adorkable]
I'm a sucker for Loki/Cap in any incarnation. But this is super good, great voices, lovely incomprehensible Loki. And a very yummy bewildered adorable Cap POV.

“I’m not even going to bother anymore,” he tells Clint, once he can properly move his jaw again. Clint looks at him and nods in something almost like sympathy.

“I’ve found that’s a good philosophy. You know, in general,” he agrees. “Now quit moving around while I set you on fire.”


sigyn (binding is not punishment) and ragnarok (release tips the balance) by Aria
Darcy/Loki [epic] [fuck yeah]
Darcy = Sigyn. Stop, just... bask in that for a moment. DARCY= SIGYN. If that doesn't make you die from the awesome I don't know what will. Also, it's got a bit of a Joker/Harlequin flavour and I love it.
