Drat it all, I'm back to having insomnia and stress dreams and being too empty-headed to make or do things. This saddens me because I was starting to write, to actually think about writing, and now that's gone again. I can only hope the brief spark will return.

Meanwhile I've been drifting through my secondary fandoms, the non-HP ones I turn to when I can't connect any other way. One canon ended this year with an abbreviated season and an unsatisfactory send-off (Person of Interest) and the other is on hiatus (Doctor Who, Twelfth Doctor specifically). PoI gave me a slash and a femslash ship (canon, and frankly, I love everyone in this bar because the cast - including the AI which is only a voice - had amazing chemistry together) and DW gave me the first het OTP I've shipped in … well, I can't remember when. Years.

Of course they both end tragically.

So this is just a pretext for posting two fan vids that reflect the emotional weather around here. They're both about goodbyes (not that I'm personally going anywhere) and the catharsis of sorrow.

The PoI vid is called Light Carries on by eemersonm, and it's set to what must be the current Most Used Song for purposes of fannish vidding, "Saturn" by Sleeping at Last.

The DW vid will probably only mean something to those who've seen the last two seasons and how the relationship between the Doctor and his companion Clara played out. The music is "Rise" by John Dreamer, and the vid by JCF Productions is entitled Two Hearts (the Doctor canonically has two, and Clara's is suspended between heartbeats).

I should try going back to sleep now because I have to be officially up in four and a half hours, but I'm doing my best not to disappear from fandom again.

(Also, hurrah - [livejournal.com profile] hoggywartyxmas is coming back for another year!)

Never watched POI, but I am a big fan of Amy Acker. Might have to check it out.

Sorry things are shitty, hope your muse returns soon,

POI starts out as a procedural - people die and cars crash - but it has elements of sci fic and it poses interesting ethical questions. The biggest draw was how much I loved every single member of the cast. The guest stars are pretty spiffy, too. It's not a perfect show, especially after the original scriptwriters left, but I was surprisingly attached to it.

Thank you for your kindness, Lash, and I hope your body stops giving you so much trouble. You must be mightily fed up with all the surgery by now.

Also, speaking of muses, I hope yours has plans for the holiday fests. I notice the call to Hoggywartys sign-ups just posted.

Ah... secondary fandoms. I have two, but one is pretty much straight up music (and not located in the normal places) and the other is not moving much at all in terms of production. I am struggling with visual media at the moment, I can't seem to get through any film or tv show without just walking away from the energy it takes to stay interested. Oh well. I tried POI, but it suffered from my inability to maintain interest beyond an episode. Such is my own idiocy.

Hopefully at least you can get the stress dreams under control, if not the insomnia. :\

I just wanted to let you know that it made me so happy to see you signing up for Hoggywarty. ***hugs***
