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.

New vid! Made for the Spring 2017 round of [livejournal.com 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.

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!

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.)

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



This was all [livejournal.com 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).

The recent Harsh Light of Day review at [livejournal.com 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!

Wow, I can't believe I managed to make two vids in only a couple of weeks. Granted, the first one (made for [livejournal.com profile] sb_fag_ends) was really short, and this new one, made for this year's [livejournal.com 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.

Freshly made: a tiny Spuffy vidlet (of course set to a Stranglers song) for one of the May prompts at [livejournal.com 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

double_dutchess: (Spike soul)
Via a link in the [livejournal.com profile] su_herald, today I came across this great post by [livejournal.com profile] pfeifferpack about Spike and whether or not he needed a soul and why. I like this post, because it largely reflects how I've always felt about Spike and his soul. It's also a good excuse to post an old vid of mine, in which I tried to express a similar view in my own preferred medium.



"Things change."
"They do. If you make them."

It's not my best vid, but it's important to me because I love soulless Spike's journey so much. To quote from pfeifferpack's post, I think he did not need the soul for redemption. He was on the road to that already with each baby step, each choice.

This "consent for dummies" video was mentioned in my newspaper so I went to check it out, and I thought it was great. Yes, it is that simple!

double_dutchess: (Spuffel wedding)
Yes! It's the last day of 2015, and I have finally finished the vidding project I started in the summer of 2014. The reason it took me so long is that outside the summer and Christmas holidays, I had very little time to work on it. Anyway, it's a  AU BtVS vid exploring the S/B/A love triangle, featuring Angel as Bobby, Spike as Roger and Buffy as Eileen.
On to the vid )

Happy New Year to everybody, and I hope you enjoy the vid!

Some lovely people nominated my work for Round 12 of the No Rest For The Wicked Awards this summer. I was nominated in the following categories:

  • Something to Sing About (Best Icon for AtS, BtVS and Firefly) with my "Real Men Drink Tea" icon from the Giles/tea icon set I made for summer_of_giles

  • Under Your Spell (Best Banner for AtS, BtVS and Firefly) with the banner I made for [livejournal.com profile] sparrow2000's wonderful story Searching for Jim

  • That Vision Thing (Best Music Video for BtVS and AtS) with my vid Broad Daylight, made for sb_fag_ends

I even won two awards: Real Men Drink Tea got a Judge's Choice, and Broad Daylight won Runner Up for Best BtVS and AtS Music Video.

So here's a belated Big Thank You to my nominators, the [livejournal.com profile] wicked_awards organisers and the judges!

Apologies for hardly being around lately. I'm drowning in work and unlikely to resurface for any length of time before the Christmas holidays. Still, I managed to do a little thing for Halloween!

I participated in the Nekid Numbers Halloween over at [livejournal.com profile] nekid_spike and got the prompt "Wesley or Drusilla / Ghost / Woods". I went with Dru, and this is what I came up with. The text is from the poem Haunted Forest by Kurt Kacich.

Ghost Dru in the Woods )


The past few years I always used to make a Halloween vid for BuffyTube, but that's a no go this year. So I'm posting an old vid that fits in with Ghost Dru in the Woods:

Cruel Garden )


Finally, I really would have liked to participate in the [livejournal.com profile] sb_fag_ends Trick or Treat game, but there's no way I can do it. It looks like so much fun and it has already caused a slew of short fics that I'm really looking forward to read. So please, go participate if you have the time. There's still a few days left!

TRICK OR TREAT - an SB Fag Ends Halloween Challenge

Yay, I made a new vid! Not the one I started over a year ago and still haven't finished, but a "quickie" that I threw together in a few days for the Night & Day July theme over at [livejournal.com profile] sb_fag_ends. Prompt: in broad daylight.

The vidlet contrasts Buffy and Spike's daytime and nighttime activities and is basically all sex and violence. No clips from Seeing Red though. The song is a thoroughly butchered (by me) version of Broad Daylight by Gabriel Rios. I hope you enjoy.

Watch the vid )

Today was my posting day at [livejournal.com profile] summer_of_giles, and my contribution was an icon set dedicated to my favourite Giles pairing: Giles/tea. Here are some teasers; the full set is behind the cut below.


This isn't the first time I've made a tribute to this particular pairing. I also made a vidlet about it, back when (SPOILER) Giles died in the Season 8 Buffy comics. (Don't worry, he's alive again, though a bit changed, see icon 18.)  Here's the vid, aptly named TEA. Then, on to the icons!

Last month's Buffy comic (S10 issue #15) ended like this:



As a result of this phone call, Angel will be coming to visit the Scoobies in San Francisco. We will see what happens in tomorrow's issue. Buffy and Spike are openly in a relationship now, so awkwardness is guaranteed.

But this is not really a comics post. I'm just using the comics as an excuse to post an old Spike/Angel vid of mine, "I Hate You", which I was reminded of by those final panels of #15. It's also an anniversary of sorts: it's almost exactly a year ago that I first posted "I Hate You" on YouTube. (Sadly, it's also my most recent vid. Work on my current vid project has been on hold since the end of last year due to lack of time. I hope I'll be able to pick it up again in the summer.)

Anyway, on to the vid:

Sorry that I've been largely absent from LJ lately, but real life (work and dad issues) got in the way. So, I still haven't got anything new to show, but I thought I'd post this old Ethan Rayne tribute I created in memory of Robin Sachs, who died two years ago today. We miss you, Ethan!

The vid was made for BuffyTube and the opening image is by [livejournal.com profile] nmcil12.

Title: Spike Against Satanklaas (2014 version)
Medium: video (AtS crossover, AU)

As my first contribution to [livejournal.com profile] noel_of_spike, I posted a revamped version of an AtS crossover fanvid that I made 2 years ago. In the vid, Spike and the Angel team take on Sinterklaas, who is basically the Dutch version of Santa Claus (but in the vid he's really a demon). More details can be found behind the cut below.

And yeah, I know this post is a bit late -- 5 December would have been more appropriate, but then I didn't have an LJ account yet!

Title: The Spikendales
Characters: Spike, Spike, Spike, Spike, and Spike
Medium: video
Warning: this vidlet has some mild nudity, so maybe not entirely worksafe

I made this little JibJab a few years ago for [livejournal.com profile] veiriti on BuffyTube. I've just posted it at [livejournal.com profile] nekid_spike (where it seemed rather appropriate) and I thought I'd post it here too.
