Go To Your Happy Place

Vids for the Masses

Holdt's 2010 Vidlist

Listed by Month, and in order of creation:

December 2010

Fandom: Matrix Trilogy
Pairing: Trinity/Neo
Warnings: flashing lights, fast-paced
Summary: What or who is Neo really fighting for? Trinity isn't sure, but she and Neo have to figure it out.
Music by The Guild

Stargate SG-1/SGA
Character Study:
Warnings: flashes
Summary: Teal'c - integral, necessary and all too often ignored. He is truly a man alone, more so than any other character on SG, given his alien status, birth, upbringing/culture and his choice to rebel in a society that does not tolerate rebellion.

Dedicated to Mitch, a true Warrior

Special Thanks to: Pinkdiamonds, for having much better verbage than myself in explaining exactly why Teal'c is so special.

Music by Gavin DeGraw



Fandom: Caprica
Study: The S.T.O./Sister Clarice Willow
Warnings: violence, flashes, disturbing imagery
Summary: This vid stems from my unease at the main story arc of Caprica, and my views on the socio-political environment of the show and any organization that employs such extremist/anarchist values. Here is how it all leads to the extremist idealogy becoming ingrained in the Cylon's programming, and how that programming becomes the true seed of the Cylon/Human War of Battlestar Galactica.
Music by Halestorm

Collab: Holdt & Darcy
Stargate SG-1
: Jack/Daniel
: flashes, surrealism
: Jack's UST finally becomes too much.
Music by Chris Isaak

2) Hide & Seek
: Stargate SG-1
: Jack/Daniel
: AccDanCloset crack, slash, more crack, actual jungle fever and even more crack.
During downtime, Daniel gets bored. Jack always has the cure for what ails him.
Music by AASMA

3) Breathe You In
Stargate SG-1
steaminess/sensuality, men being sweet on each other, mature content, angst, some dickery
Jack is more disturbed than he lets on about how Daniel always seems to find admirers in the worst situations, and in the middle of  a conversation he finds he cant hold his tongue. He lashes out, despite the fact that this time, Daniel was under the influence of an alien device.
Daniel tries to explain, but Jack doesn't want to hear any more excuses - his pride and his fears that he's is too old /Daniel doesn't really want him choke any kindness down.
They separate, Daniel moves back into his old apartment, and in day to day life, they try to act as though nothing is amiss.
However, neither can stop thinking of the other, or of how desperately they miss each other, and their thoughts always go to the one time they were able to take advantage of downtime to actually be together.
Watch for the rest!

March 2010

1) Welcome to the (Ass-Kicking) Club
Welcome to the (Ass-kicking) Club
Stargate SG-1
Gen/Team Season One
Music by Manian - "Welcome to the Club"

For Fun, Not Profit.

Enjoy! :D

Streaming @: http://ravenholdt.livejournal.com/7857.html
2) In Another Life (J/D)
SG-1 J/D, D/T, J/S :O
This is a shamelessly illogical AU.
Daniel expresses his interest in Jack through a series of flashbacks where Jack constantly tells him how it would never work out and insists that he's straight as an arrow. Since dont ask dont tell doesnt apply to civilian consultants or Jaffa allies ;), Daniel decides to cut his losses and move on, being the survivor he is.
Jack runs to Washington with his tail on fire.
In an effort to make peace, Daniel encourages Sam's interest in the Colonel and Jack plays along, as the perfect gentleman officer.
Teal'c and Daniel become closer than either expected, and a relationship blooms. Daniel is initially stunned, but decides to explore this chance. He shows up at Teal'c's all fired up to discuss it to death ....and Jack happens to walk in on a delicate moment.
Now Jack realizes that he is jealous as hell, and that there's not a damn thing he can do about it from Washington.
Eventually the years force them both to re-evaluate their choices.

3) Revelle (J/D, Team)
St Patricks Day 2010Chall for AccDan Closet.
Not beta'd, so my apologies for issues. (Didnt have much time for this one.)
Hope you enjoy!

Streaming @: http://ravenholdt.livejournal.com/8906.html

4) So Happy  - Premiered at CON.TXT 2010
Stargate (J/D)
Warnings: MainChar!Death, Multiple!Death, Death Death Death. Also, movie spoiler for Continuum.

Jack and Daniel are tied togeher across all dimensions, and are willing to give their lives for their principles, especially since every time, an endless eternity of every moment that ever was or will be, and all the quantuum impressions of them that have ever been, await on the other side.
Basically, this is a "hero factor" J/D vid where I defy the whole "Jack cant/wont ascend" trope. They think on each other as they were in life and reflect on the personality changes that made theirs a relationship of equals.
Even at the worst, everything really is alright.
Standard disclaimer - I am not Paramount, yadda yadda.
Music: "So Happy I Could Die" by Lady Gaga

Lyrics@: http://www.elyricsworld.com/so_happy_i_could_die_lyrics_lady_gaga.html
Streaming @: http://ravenholdt.livejournal.com/9471.html

Firefly (Mal/Simon)
Warnings: 18+, slash, series-specific violence, dominance/submission, mature imagery
Summary: Even in the darkness, sometimes the path is clear.
Story: From River's POV, as she senses it all but is powerless to explain her understanding.
Simon wonders why he can't stay away from Mal.
Mal wonders why he can't resist Simon's looks even though he knows the boy is trouble.
They'll do anything to touch...anything.
What they have is the brightest spark they can hold on to.
River gets in the way despite herself.
In the end, Mal decides that if River is the price he has to pay to be with Simon, Simon's worth it.

The truth is, I wish I were a better writer, because there's an entire fic about family and loyalty and emotional baggage/ owning your decisions here that I can see so clearly. Heavy overtones of possession and trust issues. (Go figure!) lol
Any takers?

Footage owned by Paramount, MGM and BBC
Music: You Complete Me by Stabbing Westward

A different perspective.

Clips Coutesy of Stargate SG-1
No profit was gained from this video.
No copyright infringement intended. Video is for entertainment purposes only.

Streaming: http://ravenholdt.livejournal.com/1375.html

2) Don't Ask (J/D)
18+ for mature imagery. Dark.
General Hammond confronts Jack and Daniel about the rumors on base...only to find that the rumors are true. Jack, fearful for both his command and his pension, decides to toe the line and put as much space between them as possible. In response, Daniel makes plans to leave, Jack comes to visit Daniel at his new post as Civilian Consultant/Diplomat and....:)
WARNING: Extremely unapologetic Jack and manipulative Daniel.
I've been trying some new stylistic approaches, so comment if you like AND if you don't, and drop me a line.

Streaming: http://ravenholdt.livejournal.com/4600.html

3) Apology (Daniel/Shar'e, Daniel/Vala)

Warnings: het, 18+ for mature imagery.
Haunted by memories of a perfect love gone terribly wrong, Daniel tries to move on with his life. Sadly, he's unable to shake nightmares of his past and so he begs Shar'e to release him from his guilt.
Finally, through realizing how little he actually wants to hurt Vala, Daniel is able to reconcile his new feelings and say goodbye.

1. Because Vala is awesome.
2. Because some day, he has to let go.

My first ever Het vid. Best viewed with headphones and/or bass. (Adjust your volume before watching - the music crescendos VERY quickly about 2 seconds in.) After your acclimate, Id suggest turning it back up a bit.  (Has a slight timing-related render error in just before credits - I am working to fix it but may not be done by PYOW Day)
***Thanks to Kazbaby and Deoneta for their excellent advice and beta'ing.***
