Another fantastic fanvid about Deniz and Roman from Alles was zählt (All That Matters). This one is a Roman character study from the early days of their relationship. I hated Deniz during this time period, but Roman wasn’t an easy person to deal with either. He wasn’t a delicate flower. Anyway, yeah, this was lovely to see.
Oh, Roman, you were such a brat and such a darling. I loved you.
You know, the immensity of this one is pretty huge. There’s a lot of emotion for any fan in watching these images flash by. When one of “your” fandoms comes up, the swell of joy is so sweet, and then the wonder of seeing the little glimpses of how passionate fans are–like the Avatar: The Last Airbender movie protests. Oh, fandom, I love you!
I strongly recommend this vid for a shot of feels in the morning. Also, check out the vidders’ comments HERE.
I was looking up some YouTube fanvids for Roman Wild from the German Soap, Alles was zählt and found this amazing ‘shipper vid for Roman and his main love interest, Deniz. I admit that the color fades at the end were a bit much, but it doesn’t negate the otherwise awesome presentation of the truly fucked up, hot, and tender love between Deniz and Roman. Jeez, I’d forgotten how hot their kisses were. American soaps? Take note. This is how hot man-on-man kisses should be, not that dreary, cardboard you give us!
Also, the perv in me would like to point out the perfect placement of the shower scene to the line “you’ve got a piece of me”. Nicely done, vidder. Nicely done.
One used to be able to view all of Deniz and Roman’s story translated by some wonderful fan volunteers. I’m not sure that’s still available. If a fan knows and reads this post, feel free to enlighten me and others as to where that can be found! 🙂
FWIW, their romance ends tragically, but it’s a German soap, so what were you expecting? Hell, it is a soap, so what were you expecting? 😉 Let’s not talk about trains, okay? I’m still not over it.
I was signing up for Vimeo for reasons and the site said, “Hey, we recognize this email! Want to log in?” And I said, “Uh, sure.” So I did, thinking, “When did I create a Vimeo log in?” Then I clicked My Videos and remembered, “Oh, yeah, back when I made this fanvideo for Chrolli.” So the below fanvideo? Mine. Made it my own self. 😛
In today’s world, somewhere between 50 Shades and Twilight and One Direction and Teen Wolf, almost everyone has at least heard of fanfiction. The consensus opinion on fanfiction still seems like a hung jury with many thinking that fanfiction is drivel, brainless, idiotic, a waste of time and potential, and many other things. Others point out that fanfiction is not only okay but that many works of literature qualify as fanfiction. Just like any other kind of writing, some fanfiction is awful and some is okay and some is sublime.
Today, I’m not offering up a slice of sublime, but I think that this story by fairy_tale_echo is definitely not drivel. Over the last few years, I’ve been reading all of Beverly Cleary’s Ramona Quimby books to my daughter, and when I saw this offering back in 2010, I made note of it. Having read it a few times now, I feel like it is a fitting tribute to the Ramona Series and I recommend it to those who might be interested or simply curious.
There is nothing Ramona Quimby hates more than doing what is expected of her. (Ramona Quimby, Age 17)
Ramona Quimby is seventeen years old, a graffiti artist who tags the streets of Portland as “Q” and idolizes Banksy, an honor student secretly crushing on the captain of the football team who also happens to be her current tutee, and she is standing over one of her best friends and holding a pair of scissors.
Oh, how long she has dreamed of this, this exact moment. She never thought it would happen, but here she is, standing over Susan with a pair of scissors, about to take one of Susan’s fat curls in her hand and snip it off.
The sound “Boing-boing-boing!” rings out in her head like it has since that first day of kindergarten so many years ago when she had seen Susan for the first time.
She picks up a curl and before Susan can even whisper, “I don’t think my mother…” Ramona snips it off. She hears Daisy’s indrawn gasp and Davy’s small clap a split second later.
“It’s your hair, Susan, not your mother’s. And you’re seventeen, not seven. She can’t boss everything you do,” Ramona says firmly, grabbing another curl and clipping again.
Allison has really become one of my favorites and a truly kick-ass heroine in so many ways. Any flaws she has I attribute to Jeff Davis and his lack of skills in storytelling, not to the character herself. I don’t usually do that, but when it comes to Jeff Davis, I do. The guy can’t write his way out of a paperbag…that he wrote himself into. But I still love the show. Though Jeff thinks emotional continuity (or continuity of any kind) is for losers, apparently. Whatever, whatever, watch this gorgeous vid below by Gabbi. If Allison isn’t enough of a draw for you, it’s also got Stiles. And who doesn’t love Stiles? The end.
