Sweet Charity  
I signed up for Sweet Charity! I'm offering, um, recs. It's what I have to offer. And it's for an excellent cause - the Writer's Guild Foundation Industry Support Fund, to help non-WGA workers who have been laid off because of the strike. So, you know, there's a genuinely good reason to bid. On me, maybe even. (I'm seriously wondering if anyone will bid on me, but: good cause! Also, recs for you!)

My offer, quoted from the site:
I'll do one recs set of at least four stories or vids or pieces of art in my usual style. (You can see what that's like at thefourthvine.livejournal.com.) You get to pick the fandom or the theme. (Probably not both.) I'm willing to do any of the fandoms or themes listed below, and if you have an idea for something else, feel free to suggest it - just please have a choice from the list, too, or check with me before you bid.

I won't rec specific stories, and I probably can't meet requests for specific pairings (unless you happen to want one of my OTPs, in which case I totally can).

Possible fandoms: Angel the Series, Anime, Art, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, DCU, Dark Is Rising, Dead Zone, Doctor Who, due South, Farscape, Harry Potter, Hercules, Hikaru no Go, Hitchhiker's Guide, Highlander, Marvel Universe, Master and Commander, Ocean's 11, Pirates of the Caribbean, Sentinel, Small Fandoms, Smallville, Sports Night, Stargate: Atlantis, Stargate: SG1, Supernatural, Torchwood, Vids.

Possible themes: Alternate Universes, Amnesia, Animals, Attire, Bad Days, Bad Things, Body and Gender Shenanigans, Breaking Up, Cliches and Crack, Coming Out, Crossovers, Death, Documents, Dreams and Sleep, Established Relationships, Evil, Family, Fast Fic, First Times, Five Things, Food, Gen, History, Humor, In Public, Intoxication, Kidfic, Kink, Kissing, Language, Longer Stories, Masturbation, Meta, Numbers, PWP, Rare Pairings, Ratings Below NC-17, Religion, Secrets and Lies, Series, Small Fandoms, Surprise, Things That Never Happened, Threes, Travel and Transportation, Watching.
And l will add that I will try hard to meet any special requests you might have.

(Remember: good cause!)
Very inconvenient, as now I have no shaving-glassdzurlady on January 18th, 2008 07:12 am (UTC)
TFV, I am so sure people will bid on you I doubt I can afford to bid. (Well, bid to win.) But how awesome! Could you ask for a *collection* of fandoms (even in a 'it would be cool if you could?' kind of way) and a theme?

Sort of? I mean, I expect whoever wins will tell me in detail what she wants, but with the understanding that there's only so many things to rec, so she might only get one of the fandoms, or some of them, or the fandoms but no theme, like that. But I plan to try.

Hi! I pimped your journal at the New-to-Me Vid watching challenge. Laurashapiro pointed me your way, and I'm SO glad she did. Your recs are amazing!

Also, I will totally bid on you. Yay for ho's!

ETA: Gah. the whole point of this comment was to ask you if it was OK that I pimped you... :)

Hi! Destiny's Calling was insanely awesome, by the way, but I'm sure you knew that. It made me deeply joyful. And thank you for pimping my journal! Of course it's okay. Who doesn't want to be pimped?

(I also have to thank Laura for pimping me to you, though at this point I think I owe her more than just thanks - she's the person who kept encouraging me to talk about vids, back when I started. Which, yeah, burgeoned into kind of an obsession. Probably I'll have to give her a kidney or something. )

Thanks! I just love vids, so I HAD to make it once I got the idea. Glad that it made you joyful!

I can't wait to have some time to read your journal in more depth. Good vid recs are worth so much to me as a newbie vidder. Not only do I want to study the best, but I also don't want to repeat a project--I'm perfectly happy to just enjoy someone else's lovely work. :D For example, I doubt I'll ever need to make a Ten (Dr. Who) vid after watching both Moons and New Dawn Fades.

Plus, I just love vids, and I enjoy reading about someone else's love for them!
