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’ll need to follow this lovely link to watch a really beautiful fanvid. It’s not even a show that I watch (anymore), but I thought it was gorgeous and beautifully done. Go on over and have a gander. I know there are a couple of hoops to jump through, but it’s worth it.
For the month of December, I’m going to combine Fanwork Friday and my Holiday Music fest. The first example is this wonderful video by Hikaru77 featuring the song “A Winter’s Carol” from Midwinter Graces combined with footage from the 2002 film Snow Queen to make this really gorgeous fanvid.
There are different kinds of fans in this world, obviously. This is a fanwork (more like gorgeous, heartstopping, fanart) by someone who clearly deeply loves The Weepies. Or, at the very least, this song by The Weepies.
To quote the artist, Ryan Woodward, from his site:
I think what I’m reacting to in his creation, and which rings true to me with fanworks in general, is that he has left behind a commercial venue for his work, turning instead to the ‘realm of individual interpration’. So much of fanwork is about taking what was once commercial and appropriating it for oneself in an individual way, putting one’s own experiences and interpretations onto it.
I doubt that this artist would necessarily see his piece as a fanwork, but I do. And since this is my blog, let’s say it is. Whatever your thoughts on whether it qualifies as a fanwork, it is beautiful. Do watch it.
So, you might have noticed a trend with the Fanwork Fridays. I promise it won’t always be this way, but, yes, there has been a lot of Teen Wolf, and now you will see a second mention of Avatar: The Last Airbender. That’s because my daughter is way into Avatar and, um, maybe I am way into Teen Wolf, okay? There is no shame in fangirling!
While looking around Etsy for some fangirly stuff for my kiddo for Christmas, I found out that people make all kinds of awesome Avatar things. Check it out!
Aang and Zuko on some shoes!
Water Nation, Fire Nation, Earth Nation, and Air Nation Christmas bulbs!
And, um, I kinda want this awesome t-shirt.
This is not Avatar: The Last Airbender related, obviously, but, guys, I think there are some Doctor Who fans who might love this.
Etsy and fans! They are like peanut butter and jelly! Or peanut butter and chocolate! Or chocolate and marshmallow! Or, if you hate chocolate, then like strawberries and cream! Hope you enjoyed this installment of Fanwork Friday. Please click through on the pics to purchase from the creators or to check out the other work in their shops.
