I really have no desire to learn how to make vids, but on the other hand... well, as I said yesterday I don't do fanmixes, which is not because I can't find songs that are appropriate, but because when I'm into a particular fandom everything
seems vaguely appropriate. This is probably why I keep hearing songs and saying "ooh, that would make a great POI vid, if someone else would make it."
I'm not sure why Shearwater keeps coming up in that regard (well, it's probably the birds, but still). I already pointed to Pushing the River
(because, for one thing, any song containing the lyrics "Can you see me now?" just screams POI), but also I think You As You Were
works extremely well.And the world goes racing, suddenly changed
As the shock of the axe, it leaves you trembling
Like a bursting shell in the small of your back
Or a job that's hard on the cast of your little lie...
Anyway. Just saying, if anyone ever wanted to. (U2's "New York" is also an interesting possibility. But there are many.)
What I am doing is writing crossovers, since that seems to be the mood I'm in. I love crossovers; sometimes I think they're the best part of fanfic, since how wonderful is it that you can take characters you love from different stories and smoosh them together? And I mind much less if nobody reads crossovers than if nobody reads one-universe fic, in fact it's pleasantly surprising when people do.
So, upcoming, a) the one where Peter Burke goes to Agent Donnelly's funeral and meets a man calling himself Harold Jay, and b) the one where Martin Crieff and Frank Lapidus get drunk together at a bar on Molokai. Nobody's going to read the second one, but I still have to write it; perhaps I'm just dizzied by all the gold braid.
