Happy Birthday to me!

35 today, tra'la'la!

I've already gotten some great birthday wishes, including a carnation, an evil ducky, and a lovely little anonymous death-fic. Hurray!

You know what I'd like for my birthday? Feedback! Read something I wrote, or watch a vid, and tell me what you thought? Or you could tell me which of my pieces is your favorite, and why. Because that would make me happy.

I've got Due South, Highlander, a handful of other fandoms, and some vids.

ETA: I also have some due South podfic. Apparently I FORGOT about the podfic.

Happy Birthday!
A very Happy Birthday to you!

I saw your request for feedback and went to look at your stories--what do I find, but the "From the Mangled Journal of Richie Ryan", which I love, but then I saw I had done that one *last* year. So here's me telling you I *still* love that story.

But then I figured, hey, look at a vid, so I went to take a look at "Life Among the Watchers". That is not an easy song to vid to, simply because it is popular and I've seen other vids to it, but this is a really good vid to it--I think it works because it is so focused on Joe Dawson. The Vietnam material was perfect there at the beginning -- and the middle part with the locations and dates was sheer brilliance. I loved the way that showed how Joe spent years and years of his life watching MacLeod. There were a couple parts -- the shot of the casket going into the car, the shot of the running on the pier and the rear end of the boat as it moved away (around 2;00)-- that were really capturing the movement of the song itself, it anything I'd have loved more movement like those spots -- where the camera itself was doing some sort of movement as well as action inside the frame (or did you create the movement?). I loved the "no reason to get excited" lyrics over Joe showing up behind Duncan after Duncan beat the snot out of the Watcher guys, and now Joe has to finally tell DM what's going on. It just captures the essence of that moment very well.

Very awesome vid. I don't know how I missed it when it came out.

Re: Happy Birthday!
So here's me telling you I *still* love that story. Yay! That's really nice to hear, avtually.


I really enjoyed the detailed feedback on "Life Among the Watchers"! I like the distance that the binoculars created with those middle shots, and I think I'm getting much better at coordinating movement with the sound of the music in vids. Thank you, elistaire!

Whoo! Happy Birthday to you! Your car insurance might go down again!

Also, I am o.O that I am actually OLDER than you.

I will make sure to go FB something of yours today. Have an awesome day!

Happy birthday to you! I should probably feedback a vid of yours - I don't think I've seen many of them - but right now I will tell you that Father Confessor is my favorite story of yours, narrowly edging out Guilty Until Proven Innocent.

That's fascinating! I find "Father Confessor" interesting, but not very likeable. But you're the 2ns person to tell me it's your favorite of my stories.

I'd love to get some vid feedback, if you get the chance!

WHOOP! Happy Birthday to you, Kid! *\o/* I hope it's a very fine one indeed!

I'd sing the Happy Birthday song for you, but honestly, no one who knows me would want that. O.o

Thanks brig! The lack of voice communication is only one of many reasons why the Internet WINS for social communication. Actually, it's the built-in and self-determined time-lag that is my favorite part.

Happy birthday!

Death-Defying is my favorite story of yours, it just grabbed me emotionally and wouldn't let go.

Feedback to follow.

That feedback you left me for "Death-Defying" made me dance around the room with happiness. Thanks for the birthday wishes!

yay! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, keerawa!!! i hope it's an absolutely fabulous one. \k/

and HOW could you forget your amazing podfic? :)
keerawa

I had a good time, yep. I tend to forget about the podfic because (since I primarily podfic my own stories) I just tend to see them as another way to publish the stories I write, rather than independant creative efforts.

Happy Birthday! I congratulated you in my journal - go see! A few days back!

Yes, happy birthday to you - you've achieved a little over half my age so you can continue to feel pretty darn young!

Hope your day continues wonderful! Hugs!
Love, max

Ooooh, "Safe House". Good one! I honestly don't know if the buttermilk is canon or fanon.
