To vid or not to vid

I am being tormented with the urge to make SGA vids. Now, I have never done a vid before. I have no idea how to do a vid. More importantly, I don't want to do a vid, and I know that, really, there is no chance at all that I ever will. I'm not prepared to put in the requisite time. I think and express myself in words, so writing is what I want to do. I don't want to have to scour old episodes harvesting them for clips; I think that would end up ruining my enjoyment of the episode as an episode. Plus, I know I'd be perfectionist about it, and would want not just an appropriate image for each moment in the song, but the perfect image, and I'd never be content. So, really, there is no chance at ALL of me doing a vid. Never going to happen.

However... Whenever I hear Don't Stop Me Now or We Are The Champions, by Queen, I can see the vid I want to make. It's so vivid I can almost taste it. Don't Stop Me Now is a Sheppard-centred team vid. ("I'm a shooting star leaping through the skies / Like a tiger defying the laws of gravity...") We Are The Champions is the team vid with many moments of McKay triumph in it. I can see both of these so clearly. I'm never going to make them - this is an absolute definite - so it's driving me mad. Argh!

Anyway... I've still not quite got the habit of using this journal for general fandom stuff, and not just fanfic. I've still not got around to building a Friends list here, though I really need to. I'm still trying to work out the separation between the two journals. I'm not doing it so well, though, since I've just gone and posted some musings about experiences in various fandoms on the "wrong" journal. Oh well...

And all of this, admittedly, is just displacement activity because I'm reaching a story denouement, and denouements always need to be written in one go, in a solid day-long immersion that's wonderful and exciting while it's happening, but quite daunting as I stand on the brink of it, not quite daring to jump in.
