Tell me about a vid I haven't made...  
Totally stealing this from ash48 because I seem to be on a vidding kick lately.

Tell me about a vid I haven't made, and I will give you 10-20 seconds (or more maybe!) from it.

Please include the song and something about what you saw. It might include something about the effects, a pairing, a character or just an idea. This is open to anyone, not just people on my flist.

However, I am adding the additional caveat that you also need to base your prompt on a square from my vid_the_grid claim since I haven't done a thing for it for 2 years.

Claim Post: Archetypes

SciFi/Fantasy TV & Movies

1.Saint 2.Sinner 3.Child 4.Hero
5.Mentor 6.Trickster 7.Wise Man 8.Parent
9.Scientist 10.Warrior 11.Joker 12.vidder's choice

Accepted fandoms: Supernatural, Merlin, Firefly, Legend of the Seeker, Neverwhere, Xena and generally any scifi or fantasy movie. I am open to all characters and all pairings but I do reserve the right to reject a prompt if it's a movie I don't know or a prompt that really doesn't appeal to me. I will give you a chance to prompt again if I say no.

Prompts will stay open until I fill the vid_the_grid table. So first come first served!

Wow.. I love your >lj user="vid_the _grid">. :) Lot's of interesting choices.

Ok. So...(I've been wanting to use this song but haven't had a chance).. "Sinner Man" by Nina Simone. I see it as a Sam vid, but I'm happy if you would rather another character. :D

Good luck!

I need to do a Sam vid! I have an idea in my head but I have never managed to get it going.

But I definitely like that song choice. Especially the first line about running. I am definitely getting ideas for that!

I love seeing this meme go around my flist! Am I allowed to prompt a couple so you can pick the least awful?

um, Tremendous Dynamite by Eels for the prompt 'sinner' or 'warrior' depending on who you pick. (Denna, Cara, Kahlan, Xena, Callisto, Ruby, idk.)

Red Right Hand by Nick Cave for 'mentor', either Lucifer (real or hallucinated) or Ares.

Going Home with You by The Alternate Routes. I'm not sure what prompt (wise man, possibly? or parent?) or how you'd frame it but "I see the eyes that your momma gave you, I see the mess that your daddy made you" makes me think Dean Winchester-y thoughts.

Oh, oh, last one, I promise but Monster by The Automatic for 'hero', Sam and/or Dean.

/stops rambling prompts at you /o\

I don't mind multiple prompts at all!

I think I am leaning toward Tremendous Dynamite for the Legend of the Seeker ladies (can't pick which yet) and Monster. I especially the song Monster. That's a great choice!

I have quite a list of songs I wanted to vid but somehow found myself stuck ( = i suck greatly), do you mind if I prompt some of those? :D All SPN.

See, that's what I like about this meme, the fact I can pass off all my old vid ideas and there is a brief glimmer of hope that they might get made.

So yes, bring on the list! I do miss vidding SPN, I have all these grand ideas but there is so much source that I get stuck as well :(

If you can give me a prompt as well for each song then that would be fabulous but I would love to see what songs you have.

haha exactly! :D

So, here are a few of the songs\ideas I had to give up on :( Anyway!

"Sleepdriving" by Grand Archives. I love the song and hate myself fr not being able to make up a story good enough. I kind of was stuck with something angsty, I played around but nothing even remotly plot-ish, so if you can think of something that will include this song, I will love you forver! :D

The Gathering - You Learn About It. I kind of had a plan to make an AU vid for this song based on one prompt over sharp_teeth comm - the story was something like this: Dean's alive, but the world is full of ghosts. Dean killed them all, he walks and sees ghosts, in the end he sees his gravestone – he’s dead himself, and Sam’s in front of his gravestone. Sam walks away. Um, yeah, that was kind f my vidder's notes? Sort of. I would still love to see this, if not this particular kind of AU then whatever else :)

Stereophonics - I'm Alright. Oh man, it's been almost two years since I dropped this idea, and I still regret it? I love the song. The idea came from another prompt from sharp_teeth, it was like this: Dean doesn't believe him, but Sam knows. There's something following him, something that's always just behind him. Something that followed him out of the cage. I even made up the title of the vid but somehow got stuck after a minute or so. Still hoping to see this one day ))

Faultline - Where Is My Boy. I guess I just love the song. I wanted to make something about Hell - something about Dean or Sam stuck in Hell or something, but again - meh. Maybe you'll be able to make something up :)

Portishead and Radiohead - Wandering Star and I will (ft. Katie Enlow). I guess I just love the song? And I think it'd be cool for a general spn vid.

Cat Power - Troubled Waters. BELA CHARACTER STUDY PLEASE *puppy eyes*

Oh and one Merlin vid?
Ryan Star - Lullaby Suicide. Something merlin/arthur-ish? I guess? Hm.

I guess that's it for now :)

Ooh, I like the Hell prompts. Always wanted to do something with that. But I am definitely getting some ideas for all of them.

So yay, they were some really cool prompts!

"Milkshake" by Kelis, set to Loki from Thor for the "Trickster" square.

Damn you! I feel I need to wait for the Avengers movie to come out, which means I am going to spend the movie with this song in my head every time Loki appears on screen!

I don't know whether this will make the film better or worse, lol :P
