Title: What a Shame
Footage: Person of Interest s1-s5
Music: What a Shame by Shinedown
Length: 4:20
Character: John Reese
Summary: John Reese is a talented killer - and saver of lives.
Content Notes: TV level violence. Created for MnemonicMadness, during Exchange of Interest 2018

Creator Notes:
 MnemonicMadness provided the song and subject - and it just so happened both of the prompts fell well within my wheelhouse. Reese is a beautiful subject to vid!

From the creation side of things, this is the fastest cut I've ever assembled. Exchange deadlines plus May/June is one of my busiest seasons IRL. I have a STRONG desire to do one more pass on this because there are a few shots that aren't exactly perfect and the color grading is all over the place. I'd also love to tweak the pacing more. The song has a strong beat and I don't think I took full advantage of that. But, I know me and vidding, and I could easily spend the next month tweaking this -and I don't have a month so.

Overall, I'm happy with the end product. I think the song fits the character very well and there are a few edits that I absolutely love: Joan, the Kara kill, black hood Mark to black hood John, young John to smiling John.

In your own space, share a favorite memory about fandom: the first time you got into fandom, the last time a fanwork touched your heart, crazy times with fellow fans (whether on-line or off-line), a lovely comment you’ve received or have left for someone. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I was in my early twenties when I discovered online fandom. Wow! 
This was the late 90s. Professional wrestling was my jam, and Scott Hall was my dude! 

Pro wrestling fandom was, and probably still is, a dual fandom of sorts. I started out on usenet and quickly found rec.sport.prowrestling, RSPW. 
EVERYBODY was on RSPW back then, fans, smart fans, dirtsheet writers, promoters, agents, writers, wrestlers. and BAH GAWD, even Jim Ross!

It had everything from the backstage gossip, to fans making great lists and writing e-fed storylines, to, in hindsight, straight up trolling training grounds. It was the wild west to me and most of what I know about the internet I learned in my first month at RSPW. So anyway, while I'm immersed in this super male-centric, rough fandom, I'm also very interested in looking at photos of hot wrestlers and bit by bit I found the female fans.

There were websites, and photo galleries, and message boards with threaded conversations so you could meet and talk to other lady fans! Then I found the fan fic and that lead to a whole other level of websites and mailing lists and archives and a different set of fans who would become friends. I learned how to code HTML and javascript, how to make Flash games, how to edit video, how to sell on ebay - I learned a shit ton of stuff during this period. I was in college on a business degree, but looking back some 20 odd years later, I'm making a living off the things I learned through fandom. My real life job is digital content producer, and that's all fandom.

Anyway, this is getting long. Eventually most of the wrestlers I enjoyed left the business or died :/  I fell out of active fandom and was out for a loooooong time until, in 2013ish, I found my new thing, Person of Interest.

Day 1

In your own space, talk about why you're participating in Snowflake and, if you’ve participated in the past, how the challenge has affected you. What drew you to it? What did you take away from it? What do you hope to accomplish this year? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


This is my third year of half assing the Snowflake Challenge. I come back each year though because fandom is an important part of my life. This is where I can be creative, where I learn new skills, and where I get joy from my favorite characters. Another reason I come back is the new year/new you idea. I like the idea of starting off with a fresh fannish slate each January.

All that said, I hope to keep the Snowflake train going for the entire challenge this year!

DNW: Scat
 
Star Trek: The Original Series - Hello. If we matched on this category then feel free to go crazy. McCoy is probably my fav. character from TOS, but I enjoy all the characters and themes.

In your own space, create your own challenge. What’s something you want to see more people doing in fandom? Is there something you’ve tried that you think other people would enjoy if they gave it a go? Dare your friends to try it out, and have fun with it. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. 

Placeholder post. I'm working on a project that will satisfy this challenge, but said project won't go live until February.

Leave feedback for a fanwork. Or multiple fanworks. It can be as simple as I liked this to a detailed list of all the things you loved about the fanwork. The key is to leave some sort of feedback.
 
If you've already left feedback in the course of a previous challenge, it totally counts. But you're free to leave more feedback.
 
Afterwards, leave a comment in this post with the equivalent of "I did it!" If you feel so inclined, leave a link to the fanwork you left feedback for so others can check it out.
A recent fic that I enjoyed and left feedback for was :
The Only Thing Money Can't Buy by Coragyps (Harold Finch is a shy, sexually repressed shut-in. John is the prostitute he hires to take care of that middle part.)

It is a very well written POI AU spin on how Finch and Reese teamed up. Explicit.

In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. Arts and crafts. Draft a critical essay about a particular media. Put together a picspam or a fanmix. Write a review of a Broadway show, a movie, a concert, a poetry reading, a museum trip, a you-should-be-listening-to-this-band essay. Compose some limericks, haikus, free-form poetry, 5-word stories. Document a particular bit of real person canon. Take some pictures. Draw a stick-figure comic. Create something.

 AO3. Person of Interest, Reese/Finch. It's a shiptastic, romantic vid featuring ALL the hearteyes. (Well, not all of them, but as many as I could pack into 3 minutes.)

Float AO3 Harold/Nathan. The wishlist  fic that distracted me from the challenge last year. I like angsty Harold/Nathan. I tend to write a lot of it. I like this fic because I had a lot of fun writing it, I got to do Photoshop stuffs, and I think the recipient really enjoyed the fic. Win-win all around.

A Series of Complete Understandings AO3. Harold Finch, Lionel Fusco. This was my under-appreciated baby from last year. Gen fic, Harold and Lionel, I understand why it got passed over. Still, I really enjoyed writing this and I still enjoy re-reading it.  I love the team dynamics in the story and playing up two characters who don't usually get a lot of screen time together.

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

1. I would love a knowledgeable and patient person to explain to me how fic exchanges like Yuletide and
[community profile] chocolateboxcomm work. So far, I've taken part in very easy to understand type exchanges: I make a post, I list my likes/dislikes, a mod matches me with someone and I write. Tagsets, nominations....I don't know, I still don't understand how these latger exchanges work or how to participate in them.

2. Fan art for fic is always nice.

3. Podfic of fic would also be wonderful.

I regret not finishing the challenge last year but I had a good reason. One of the earlier challenges last year was to post a fannish wish list. I found a inspiring project on someone else's list and work on that project took over my January 15. :) I ended up with a couple of fics that I really enjoyed out of that!

This year I'm hoping to complete the challenge and take in all the opportunities for inspiration,.

A few weeks back I made a note to actually sit down and do a track by track write up on the Hamilton cast recording. It would probably make more sense to do this series in order...and on a schedule even, but that’s not going to happen.

Today’s jam (actually, the earworm for the past few days is “One Last Time.”

 Hmmm... Apparently I'm just rusty enough on DW/LJ/DJ journal skills that I can't even figure out a cut tag anymore. :/

 I found this whilst cleaning out some old writing folders. I have just the barest memory of writing this for an editing class ages ago. Pretty sure I bullshitted my way through the paper, it's not terribly academic. Posting it for that one, or two other people on the internet who wants to read more about sound design in the sound design in War of the Worlds and Cat On a Hot Tin Roof.

Goodness knows I've Google weirder.

 At birth your fate is written

 

First one, ruddy and plump, his shrill cry piercing the air of the birthing room. Then the other, equally pink and just as loud. The midwife cut the second umbilical cord before swaddling the babe and laying him next to his brother in the rough hewn bassinet. The midwife turned her attention back to the young woman, her legs still splayed wide. Her dark hair plastered to her pale face.

“Sont-ils en bonne santé? ,” she husked weakly.

“Oui, mon petit,” the old midwife murmured as she squeezed the water from a cloth and began cleaning the exhausted girl. “Ainsi,” the midwife continued, her voice firm as she nudged the girl down to rest against the bed, “maintenant tu devrais te reposer .”
 

Inside the old cradle the babies struggled against the rough and foreign bundling. Tiny hands worked free from their blankets, prodding along until each found the familiar grip of the others hand. As inseparable as they had been in the womb, the boys held tight.

Round and round like a horse on a carousel, we go,
will I catch up to love? I could never tell, I know,
chasing after you is like a fairytale, but I,
feel like I'm glued on tight to this carousel

Come, come one, come all,
you must be this tall
to ride this ride at the carnival

Oh, come, take my hand
and run though playland
so high, too high at the carnival

And it's all fun and games,
'til somebody falls in love,
but you've already bought a ticket,
and there's no turning back now

Round and round like a horse on a carousel, we go,
will I catch up to love? I could never tell, I know,
chasing after you is like a fairytale, but I,
feel like I'm glued on tight to this carousel

This horse is too slow,
we're always this close,
almost, almost, we're a freakshow

Right, right when I'm near,
it's like you disappeared,
where'd you go? is that Houdini or a freakshow?

And it's all fun and games,
'til somebody falls in love,
but you've already bought a ticket,
and there's no turning back now

Round and round like a horse on a carousel, we go,
will I catch up to love? I could never tell, I know,
chasing after you is like a fairytale, but I,
feel like I'm glued on tight to this carousel

Why did you steal my cotton candy heart?
you threw it in this damn coin slot,
and now I'm stuck, I'm stuck,
riding, riding, riding

Round and round like a horse on a carousel, we go,
will I catch up to love? I could never tell, I know,
chasing after you is like a fairytale, but I,
feel like I'm glued on tight to this carousel
