Princess of the Streets (old Spike/Drusilla vid)

This is an oldie, one of my first vids. Spike's ode to Drusilla!

I've spruced the colours up a bit for the occasion. The original, murkier version is on YouTube.

Vid: As Time Goes By (Hello Stranger) for Seasonal Spuffy

New vid! Made for the Spring 2017 round of [ profile] seasonal_spuffy.  It's a comics based one that I tried to turn into a bit more than just a slide show.

Because of copyright reasons, YouTube has blocked the vid in 4 countries (including Germany). If you're in one of these countries, try the version on Vimeo.

TV Lims Angel icons

More icons I've been long overdue in posting; these are from [ profile] tvlims Season 6, Angel.

1. 2. 4. 4a

I didn't get very far in this one.  I wasn't very happy with the main font in my losing icon, but what do you do with only 5 minutes to spare before the deadline? :-)  Many thanks to those who gave feedback; it resulted in the improved version 4a.

Again, feel free to snag (preferably with credit).

I've been brave (or stupid) enough to sign up for this new round, even though I'm still having severe time issues. So far I hadn't even managed to post my entries from Round 12 yet, which finished months ago already. So, no time like the present, right?  These are my Round 12 icons, plus alts:Icons under the cut )

Worried Giles won a Headline Award, yay!

Something else that I'm late with posting, is that my vid Giles is So Worried won runner up in the Under My Skin Award category (fan favourite vid) in this year's Headline Awards. Many thanks to all who voted for it!

Banner for A Matter of Time by Shapinglight

After disappearing off the radar since January, I'm briefly resurfacing to post one of the few things I managed to get done since then.

The following banner was inspired by [ profile] shapinglight's wonderful short fic A Matter of Time, from the last round of [ profile] seasonal_spuffy. Those of you who have read the story can probably imagine why I felt the urge to illustrate it. If you haven't read it, I suggest that you hurry up and remedy that situation right away!

WARNING: The image contains a big SPOILER, so do not click unless you have read the story.

Thank you very much to the awesome person who nominated my Giles Is So Worried vid for this year's Headline Awards!

Also, many thanks to [ profile] sparrow2000 and [ profile] feliciacraft for reccing "Giles Is So Worried" in the [ profile] buffyversetop5. I'm behind on replying to the new comments this has generated, but I'll get there.

Btw, there's still time to get more Buffyverse Top 5 recs in until January 16th. (And I don't mean that as a suggestion to rec my stuff!) Same goes for Headline Awards nominations, until January 20th.

My fandom year 2016

2016 is finally over, and it's time to look back at my second full fandom year on LJ. So here is a categorized overview of my vids, icons and other artwork that I posted for the first time on LJ in 2016. Most of it was newly made, but there's also some stuff I made years ago and that was originally posted on BuffyTube.

(TBH, I'm pleasantly  surprised by how much fannish output I managed to produce in 2016, because looking back it seems like I spent 99% of my time working.)

Bye bye 2016

I just posted this at [ profile] noel_of_spike, and I'll post it here too. 2016 has not been the best year (though it did have a few good points) and I'm glad to see the last of it. Wishing all my LJ friends a better 2017!

I don't expect to last long, but at least it'll be a good occasion to make myself some AtS icons. (Though I already know I won't have time for this.)

Yay, today the holidays have begun! Two weeks of (mostly) leasure -- so, so wonderful.

Merry Christmas to all, or if you don't celebrate Christmas, just enjoy the holidays!

New vid: NA NA NA (The Scoobies Make Some Noise)

For those of you who hadn't seen it posted on [ profile] thenewbuzwuzz's LJ or tumblr yet, I proudly present the result of our collaboration during the past 8+ months:

This was all [ profile] thenewbuzwuzz's idea, and it was so much fun to make together. Probably my best vid so far, and certainly the most explosive :-)  I'm too exhausted to express the appropriate level of squee right now, but just look here for that (and for the lyrics).

Shut Up: a vidding anniversary

The recent Harsh Light of Day review at [ profile] fantas_magoria (yes, it has started up again, yay!) sparked a good discussion in the comments about Spike and Harmony's relationship and how nasty Spike was to Harmony.

This reminded me of the first fanvid I ever made: a Spike/Harmony vid, set to Shut Up by (of course) The Stranglers. It premiered on BuffyTube on 17 August 2010, in other words, exactly 6 years ago. So I thought I'd repost it here on LJ today, by way of anniversary celebration. Enjoy!

Seasonal Spuffy zodiac icons

Here is a whole bunch of icons that I had not yet posted to my LJ. I made them for the past round of [ profile] seasonal_spuffy, which had as its theme "A New Era". That made me think of the Aquarius song from Hair (This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius), so I decided to make icons for each zodiac sign. Each icon comes in two versions: one with, and one without the zodiac symbol. There are also a few extras.

ETA: I added a few more extras for the Pisces symbol icon, because I've never been happy with that one (the version without symbol is fine).

Taurus Libra Aquarius

My Summer of Giles vid

Wow, I can't believe I managed to make two vids in only a couple of weeks. Granted, the first one (made for [ profile] sb_fag_ends) was really short, and this new one, made for this year's [ profile] summer_of_giles, is pretty simple. It basically consists of a whole lot of Giles looking worried, rubbing his face and polishing his glasses. In short, big fun :-)

Note of warning: YouTube blocked the vid in many countries (including the United States and Canada) due to copyright issues, so I put it on Vimeo instead. I hope Vimeo does allow everyone to watch it. Please let me know if you have any problems with it.

Like A Meteor (burning up time)

Freshly made: a tiny Spuffy vidlet (of course set to a Stranglers song) for one of the May prompts at [ profile] sb_fag_ends. This was thrown together in just a couple of days, so please forgive any flaws!

Setting: BtVS season 7 (except for a bit of cheating with the first clip)
Prompt: Meteorite strike
