Fannish Things To Do in 2013

Make public announcements of your goals on your LJ, Tumblr, Twitter, FB, whatever. You get positive reinforcement from everyone's encouragement, look forward to announcing victory, and feel pressured to live up to the expectations you set up.

I tend to think I have so many fannish things to do/make but there's not enough time to do, but when actually have/find the time, it's like I forget all the things I want to do, just sit and let the time slide by. In one of insmallpackages threads I found this 'all the tricks in the world to ward off writer's block/extreme procrastination' list by desertport (another ones by others here and here) and I particularly find this potentially useful/inspiring, and thus made the post following it. It's a lot of things to do for a person slow like me, but I like to believe I will do them all!

*This is an incomplete and ongoing list, and it will be edited/updated constantly (hopefully). Feel free to watch the space, I can't promise anything but you're welcome to post the requests too, doesn't matter if we've known each other or talked before. It also doesn't matter if the requests are of my fandoms, as long as I can get my hands on the clips/caps I can try making something for you.

To Learn
To Buy
Fic Ideas

To learn:

How to vid

How to draw (by hand & by/in digital format)

How to make bigger than 100x100 graphics that don't suck because my stuff seriously sucks even more in bigger canvas

Figure out how to use every software in Adobe Creative Suite 6 Master Collection
included: Photoshop CS6 Extended, Illustrator CS6, InDesign CS6, Dreamweaver CS6, Fireworks CS6, Flash Professional CS6, Premiere Pro CS6, After Effects CS6, Audition CS6, SpeedGrade CS6, Prelude CS6, Encore CS6. (Bought it months ago but it still remains mostly untouched... why, self? D:D:D:)

To buy:

Vidding software
As mentioned above I have Premiere Pro but seriously have no clue how to vid with it, also heard a lot of negative things about it. If anyone has any tips/suggestions, please please let me know!

Pen tablet
Been eyeing this for a longest time, which isn't that expensive at all, but still not sure if I'm capable of using it...

[gifset] G & Lance from 4.07 'Skin Deep' [by request]

[gifset] Chris O'Donnell 43rd birthday set [due June 26th]

[gifset] Sam & Kensi throughout the series

[gifset] G/Abby from 1.09 'Random on Purpose'

[gifset] Gibbs/G from NCIS 6.22 & 6.23 'Legend: Part 1 & 2' (not a gifset just a gif done, but definitely will do more - I love them)

[gif/gifset] Sam/G from NCIS 6.22 & 6.23 'Legend: Part 1 & 2'

[gif & edit set] COD/G ♥ lollipops

[moodtheme: animated] Seasons 1 to 4, with every character OR only Sam/G OR... both?
No one uses mood themes anymore, but *I* will definitely use this one, so it won't be a complete waste at least! I want to include every complete season if I'm going to make it, so it would be done during this summer hiatus.

[gifset] Kensi/Deeks from 2.01 'Human Traffic' (afraid it must have already been done to death though)

[gif/gifset] for pairings that are not Sam/G, Kensi/Deeks or Eric/Nell
I'm pretty much past the frustrated and into desperate or depressed or even resigned state about the fact there's nearly zero Sam/G fanwork in this fandom, but recently reminded by someone that if one doesn't ship NEITHER of those pairings, it must be beyond frustrating/disappointing being in this fandom for them. So I'm hoping to do some, even just for the variation's sake. Already done one Nate/Kensi, and got vague ideas for G/Eric and Nate/G. Any pairing/scene suggestions welcome :)

[icon] [wallpaper] [tumblr edit] 4.13 'The Chosen One' inspired (sort of)

[tumblr edit] Sam/G unrequited inspired by 4.06 'Rude Awakenings: Part 2'

[gifset] COD & LLCJ @ The 61st Primetime Emmy Awards (2009)

[gifset] COD in Head Cases (Fox TV series 2005)

[gifset] COD in Two and a Half Men 1.18 giffing spree
Already made one set, but feeling I need to make more before posting any.


[gifset] Stephen & books (not exactly the ones I pictured but I did one. Still wanting to do proper one though)

[gifset] Stephen & guns
Honestly I'm not a big fan of the way this combination was represented in S2 (S1 is totally YES) but it's still damn hot.

[gifset] Nick/Stephen per episode
Geez how many gifs seriously? Should limit 4 to 6 gifs per episode. Could be one gifset per episode, so if going with 4 gifs, total 52 gifs? Nooooooo............

[gif/gifset] Stephen scenes that break my heart
So naturally and mainly from S2.

The A-Team (2010 movie)

[moodtheme: still] featuring the entire movie & characters
I started on it November 2011 and it's been over a year since it got stuck where about 70% done. *headdesk* So for God's sake FINISH IT ALREADY, self, even though nobody's gonna use or take a look at it.


[moodtheme: animated] featuring the entire series & characters
Good thing about it is this series is just perfect for giffing, so fun and expressive, and I have 'the scenes for moods' list I made when I capped it and can actually picture the perfect moodtheme. Bad thing is there's absolutely no one to use it, not even me, at least not right now. I know it's going to be a real fun to make it and want to do it, but... zero investment, le sigh.


[gifset] The A-Team (2010 movie)/NCIS: LA (based on the prompt I left on ateam_prompts forever ago)

[gifset] Jack Reacher (2012)/NCIS: LA
I don't think I need to read fic of this crossover but kind of inspired by the visual. Would like to try the idea out, as soon as JR on DVD released.

[gifset] Transformers (movies)/NCIS: LA
The more I think about it, the more I want to make something for this crossover. I'm not too keen on spending 6 hours rewatching trilogy though...

[gifset] JP3/Primeval (Alan/Billy & Nick/Stephen)
Been toying with this idea like over a year, seriously about time to get it done.

Misc: TV shows

[gifset] Glee: 4.04 'The Break-Up' Will/Finn [gift]

[gifset] Glee: 4.06 'Glease' Will/Finn [gift]

[gifset] Touching Evil: Creegan/Rivers per episode

Misc: Movies

[gifset] Michael Biehn movies (*still* love him so much... ♥_♥) [gift]
Started for someone's fandom_stocking, gave it up due to deadline. But since there's no actual deadline for fandom_stocking, I should work on it again when I have time and feel inspired.

[gifset] Riccardo Scamarcio in Mine vaganti/Loose Cannons (2010)
One gifset for Tommaso/Marco kiss

[gifset] Barbara/Sam/Antony aka Julianne Moore/Hugh Dancy/Eddie Redmayne in bed in Savage Grace (2007)

One Direction (You know... the boyband. Time to admit that I like them *very* much. I have a thing for boybands...)

[gifset] 'Live While We Are Young' Performance @ Music Station 2013-01-18 [by request... sort of]

[gif] Liam/Zayn @ Music Station 2013-01-18


Chris O'Donnell: in suits/tuxedos

Chris O'Donnell: Teh Hair Porn

Hand!Porn featuring The Men I Lurve


[cover & tracklisting] Primeval: Stephen Hart playlist
It's kind of only for myself one, been listening to it whenever I've got Stephen feelings or in need of the mood, adding/removing the songs from time to time. The contents haven't changed for quite awhile, so I think it's pretty much complete, and maybe publishing it isn't that a bad thing?


NCIS LA: Sam/G!!!!!!
At least I've got ideas for a Sam/G vid mostly scripted/outlined, also a team one with an emphasis on Sam & G (this one still got vague part though).

(I still have at least five NCIS vid ideas completely scripted nearly a decade ago, back when I made only two vids I ever made using Windows Media Player (of doom), but now have zero desire to make them. Shame.)

Primeval: Stephen centric [60% outlined]
Promblems 1) have to rip DVDs, 2) there's only 13 episodes to use, and it might end up as another deja-vu one that's already been done to death.

Touching Evil: Creegan/Rivers (aka The Best Bradley Cooper Slash Pairing Ever)

Fic Ideas: aka 'fic I'll never be able to write 'cause I can't write in English or more like I. just. can't. write' aka 'why don't you write me fic?'

Primeval: Lester/Stephen (detailed, long)

Primeval: Leek/Stephen (prompt-ish, short)

NCIS LA: Sam/G [01]

NCIS LA: Sam/G [02]

NCIS LA: Sam/G [03] (detailed, long)
kind of wacky, or even icky or gross one nobody but me wants to read, or if thinking real hard, even myself isn't sure if I really want to read. But it's been with me for quite a long time and really needs to get out of my system. With side Kensi/Deeks, plus tiny bit of Kensi/G/Deeks (not exactly physical, at least not in explicit way).

NCIS LA: dozens of Sam/G bits that are just too vague to be even prompts. (Seriously in need of LA kink meme, even if I'd be the only one going & posting there!)



Post something at least twice a year: one (January), two (not yet)

Ask people to post/archive their work:
1) NCIS LA: vidder 1 (Sam/G)
2) NCIS LA: author 1 (G/OMC) - They posted it without me asking! ZOMG EPIC!!! One of the best slash stories in this fandom, go read!
3) NCIS LA: author 2 (Sam/G)
4) NCIS LA: author 3 (Sam/G & Gen)
5) NCIS LA: author 0.1 (asked before, got yes, but it looks like they forgot or just don't want to anymore. Is it okay to ask again...? :()
6) The A-Team: author 1 (Hannibal/Face)
