So sometimes I like to playlist surf at iMeem. It's a great way to find new vids, especially ones that others have found to be of note.

On the other hand, with playlist structure, it takes you away from places where you can see warning about, oh, let's say, content. Such as SPOILERS. Now -- if you have a show with a limited and specific lifespan, such as, let's say, LIFE ON MARS, a show that you happen to be slowly savouring the last few episodes of, these things are not such a good combination.

I took [ profile] lifein1973 off my flist specifically so that this would not happen, people. And then what do I go and do? YES. That is right. Playlist surf without a designated driver.

Please to be no more spoilers? Please?

Notes: There are many people to thank for this -- [ profile] laurashapiro, beta extraordinaire, who was patient and incredibly helpful; [ profile] morgandawn, who walked me through the final draft and some encoding issues; [ profile] thefourthvine for encouragement and helping me hook up with a beta; and [ profile] sprat, who first insisted I try my hand at this, then provided some missing source, and is now providing hosting.

This is my first vid, so any and all comments/constructive criticism are welcome.

Yuletide recs, hurrah! 12 stories, 10 fandoms.

A Thousand Miles (Avatar: the Last Airbender*) Iroh and Zuko, immediately after the Agni Kai. This story breaks me in the best possible way. Iroh does what only he can, and Zuko is so very adrift and hurting. This is full of wonderful little details, and I think this is probably the way that it happened.

Days of rest and gladness (Avatar: the Last Airbender) Momo! In a direct contrast to the above story, this is sweet and warm, like a summer's day or a favourite blanket.

A Jianghu Fairytale (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) Shu Lien and Li Mu Bai, how they met and how they will be remembered. Wistful and restrained.

Lives by Breaking (Chronicles of Narnia) Loss and love and forgetting. It never was a fairy tale, and this story gets that, gets being an adult in the body of a child and a child in the body of a monarch.

Into Seas Without a Shore (Dead Like Me) I may be biased here, because this was the story written for me, and I love it dearly. George, Joy, and Betty. It's about holding on and moving forward and letting go. There's a bit for everyone here, and the dialogue is perfect.

The Manipulated Dead (Donnie Darko) Sharp and twisted, just like the movie. It's like living inside of Donnie's head, leaving you off-balance and looking for something solid.

How Everything Turns Away (Heroes) Nathan, Daedalus, family, and hope at the end of all things.

"And the church bells softly chime." (Life on Mars) I'm picky about LoM fic, but this is just lovely. Perfect Chris voice, perfect Sam and Gene interaction.

His Girl on the Other Side of the World (Pattern Recognition) Sweet and floaty, with gorgeous prose.

Capriciousness (American Gods) Bast, in the new world. The entire piece feels delightfully feline.

Deep with the First Dead Lies London's Daughter (Torchwood) Ianto and Jack, immediately after Canary Wharf. Sharp like glass.

Rubik's (Torchwood) Gwen in pieces, and Suzie.

* It occurs to me, looking back at my LJ, that I have not actually mentioned my growing adoration for Avatar. It makes me want to talk in a "______ is love" sort of manner. I really need to find and flist some Avatar people so that I can express my squee.
