Book-to-movie adaptations

I have to show this to someone! I don't know where fans live these days and I'm not overly motivated to find out and chat to them anyway.

Anyway, really, it's all you need to do in a book-to-movie adaptation. Take the time to include the little details. I spent the whole of the most recent Les Miserables in raptures over exactly that.

Catching Fire vid: "Not Our Paradise"

Because writing isn't working right now, I guess I procrastinate with fanvids? (I should maybe think about procrastinating with RL work next time.) But I've been waiting for the DVD to come out to make this ever since I first heard the song!

Fandom: Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Title: Not Our Paradise
Song: Paradise (What About Us)
Artist: Within Temptation feat. Tarja

Summary: A look at the victors, before and during the Quarter Quell. "It's not our paradise… but it's all we want, and it's all that we're fighting for."

Characters: Octavia, Cinna, Flavius, Venia, Portia, Finnick Odair (sort of)
Words: 7165

Fashion, fears, feathers and romance in the Games culture: Octavia's birthday in the year of the Seventy-fourth Hunger Games.

Hunger Games vid: All About Us

This is about the fastest I've ever made a fanvid. That's a good sign.

Title: All About Us
Song: "All About Us"
Artist: t.A.T.u.

Summary: There's a theme that they can't touch. The defiances, both small and large, of the seventy-fourth annual Hunger Games.

Press Gang ficlet: Of Lists, Spies and Paths Not Taken

Poking around in old Word files and came across this brief snippet. It amused me enough to post it!

Fandom: Press Gang
Title: Of Lists, Spies and Paths Not Taken
Word count: 338

"She’s quite nice, though, your friend Sarah," said Kenny from behind his science textbook in the library, casually and apropos of nothing. (Set pre-series)

Press Gang fic: Like the Stars

Okay, here's the thing. When I was writing my Press Gang "The Last Word" episode coda, "Lies, and Other Kindnesses" (like, a year ago), I wanted to cover the ways all the main characters might have reacted to "The Last Word". And I got a bit intrigued by Frazz, mainly because I never pay much attention to him. So in order to work out what was going on for him, I thought, well why don't I just try writing a scene with him.

And then this happened! And there are lots of things about it that I really like.

But the thing is, in a lot of ways it's sort of the same fic as "Lies", because I wrote them at the same time with the same purpose in mind. It's just another point of view on the same thing.

So I've been not posting it, because it just seems like overkill.

But as long as I'm being brave enough to post other fic at the moment, WHATEVER HERE IT IS. I need to stop overthinking – I like this piece, that's all there is to it.

Fandom: Press Gang
Title: Like the Stars
Summary: After the events of "The Last Word", Frazz hasn’t been around much. Lynda wants to know why.
