God's Blueprint, by djarum99. R, 1535 words. Post-S2, with spoilers through the finale.

"Mitchell looking into the cracked mirror of his past, and choosing the path of his future."

Amazing, full stop. Every word is perfectly chosen, every thought is perfectly Mitchell, in all his contradiction and scars and love. I. Just.

:: flails ::

I've read it three times, and still can't describe it any better than that. If you've seen through S2, go read!!

So I'm putting together a vid show memorial for Abby at VividCon. Celli asked if it was all going to be her vids, or if there were going to be any vids made as a memorial to her.

Well, sez I, I don't know of any memorial vids.

Well, sez Celli, we could, you know, put out a call for them.

So here it is, the call: Would anyone be interested in making a memorial vid for Abby to be shown at VividCon? Memorial can be defined however you like -- either something about Abby or something she would have liked or something you remember she mentioned vidding and didn't get around to it.

If you are interested, please email me at lizbetann@ gmail.com and let me know! I have to submit a playlist by May 1, so quickly is good.

If We Shadows by ariafic (1775 words, PG-13)

I think this might capture the tangle of love and crazy binding Geoffrey and Ellen and Oliver better than anything I've ever seen outside the show itself. Each of them is pitch-perfect, flaws and passion and all, the language is beautiful, and the structure is unconventional in a way that seems completely effortless and sensible and not the least bit forced or affected.

Geoffrey makes a small and quiet character choice, frozen there in the little white room and all its reflections. Ophelia has made her wantonness her ignorance; tonight Hamlet will not be merely acting a play. Oliver is always saying he wants more from Geoffrey, Geoffrey is capable of more, more. What Oliver wants, Oliver gets.

"Time is out of joint," he whispers to Hamlet in the mirror.


S&A is one of those shows where, however much I miss it and sometimes physically ache for more, I know it's done. The story, as it makes sense to tell it on television, is told. But man, there's some nice interstitial fic out there, and this is WAY up there.

Abby's vids are all posted to www.ApocalypseWest.com

All her vids are linked from here.

Each vid has its own page, so if you want to pass a link to a specific vid to someone, you can.

PS: I figured out why the vids weren't loading (typo in the code) so if you tried to play them before and they didn't work, try again now.

Abby - obituary and donations

posted by: celli in horsechicks

Abby's local obituary is here.

If you'd like to make a donation to one of the organizations requested
by Abby and her parents, here is the information you'll need.

Checks can be sent to either:

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church (Abby worked on this website!)
4000 Clayton Road
Concord, CA 94521

MDA SF East Bay
1800 Sutter Street
PO Box 721
Concord, CA 94522

For online/credit card donations, please visit the MDA Gift in Memory page.

If you'd like to make your online gift for something specific, Abby was diagnosed with SMA type I (Werdnig-Hoffman) and SMA type II at various times (type I because she was diagnosed with it at a young age, and type II because she lived into adulthood).

Rather than have the "gift in memory" cards sent one by one to Abby's family, you can have them sent to me, and I'll bundle them up and give them to her all at once. The address is hereCollapse )

Abby's Vids... not done but a good start

Dec. 5th, 2008 | 02:20 am
posted by: lizbetann in horsechicks

I have about half of Abby's vids posted now to the Apocalypse West website:


It might be smarter to have each vid have its own entry, but right now I'm just trying to get them UP.

Whaddaya mean it's 2:30 in the morning?

Memorial Service Mourners

Dec. 3rd, 2008 | 01:57 pm
posted by: tv_elf in horsechicks

Abby had told us and even the book club at church that at her memorial service, some friends had promised to do the mourning scene from "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way to the Forum". I don 't remember who was in on this, but I figure at least a few of you horsechicks are or know who is. We need to meet with the pastor tomorrow--and by the way, he's okay with this! So I need to know if he should expect it.

Please respond to me at donna@albrechts.com  I'm using her computer because I don't have the horsechicks list.

Apocalypse West 2006 - 2008 Vid Reel

Aug. 19th, 2008 | 04:26 pm
posted by: lizbetann in horsechicks

Apocalypse West 2006 - 2008 Vid Reel was released at VividCon 2008. It had work by five vidders on it, plus me pulling together the opening credits (from Dianne's idea) and doing the closing credits, production and post-production.

Update will be on www.ApocalypseWest.com as soon as I develop it as a Drupal site.

We sold ~12 at the con. If you got one there and it is glitchy (since I didn't have time to check the disks) please let me / us know. You will know that you got one of the VVC ones if the menu says "Apocalpse West" *facepalm*

I've been bookmarking stories I like in the former de.licio.us, now Delicious, application for a while now. Mostly I keep it short, summary-one-line-reaction. I've got tags for "lovely", "glee", and "awesome", "angst" and "crack" as well as ones for crossovers, au's, and het and gen. 165 recs so far as of today, here.

The latest are a couple Torchwood-Journeyman crossovers, some post-Season-4 Doctor Who's, Tin Man, Supernatural Big Bang fic, more crossovers, NCIS, Angel, Heroes and Farscape, old and new stories alike.
