A few minutes late, here, for advent calendar-y goodness!
Since I'm still planning stuff for finals, something simple: SG1 vid recs! I bet everyone who cares has seen these a million times before, but hey, they're fun to revisit. (I also really welcome any recs you might have on hand, for this or Atlantis, because I'm on a bit of a fanvid kick lately! These are kinda J/D heavy, because those were the rec lists I came across, but I'd really love vids for any pairing at all - or gen, of course.) I'm also being a little vague in my comments because I know a couple people on the flist are still avoiding spoilers for various and sundry parts of the show.Solsbury Hill
This one follows Daniel through the first five seasons of the show, from a real pre-season six/seven/etc. perspective (it premiered at Vividcon '02) - the lyrics match up extremely
well, which I hadn't expected, and there are several segments of storytelling that are just fantastically well done. The "had to listen - had no choice" bit hooks me every time.
.Be Like Water
...yeah, I'm sure every Jack/Daniel shipper out there has seen this one before, because it's amazing. The first time I watched it, I liked it well enough, but every single time I've rewatched, I've caught something new with the timing. I mean, there are clips where the blinks
are synchronized with the beat. This is a none-too-fluffy look at the Jack/Daniel ship throughout the series, and it feels painfully real
.It's All Been Done
Because sometimes you just need some fluff! Jack/Daniel cuteness through the ages: talking in unison, adjusting glasses, bickering, bickering, bickering, and so on and so forth. Lots of fun.

Much as I'm mostly in it for the quirky and irreverent humour, SG1 and Atlantis do pull off some pretty sweeping, epic stuff. This is a fast-paced action vid (SG1/Atlantis crossover) that rolls right through some of the more desperate bits of SG1 - mostly from later seasons - and Atlantis - mostly from earlier seasons - and it definitely manages to keep up its momentum throughout.
