So! I was gone not because anything happened, just because I was feeling guilty - this time, because of how long it's been taking me to remaster Dynamite now that I have clean copies of the episodes. (Reclipping is hateful.) But at last, I have something to show for it. \o/

Title: Dynamite (Remaster)
Length/Size: 3:23/35.6 MB

More details and lyrics can be found at the old vid post; this vid is almost the same except it's higher-quality and has been slightly edited. Embed below the cut, if you want to give the shiny version a look!

Vid password: dynamite.









Title: Fast Car
Fandom: Legend of Korra
Song: Fast Car, by Taio Cruz
Length/Size: 3:16/29.2 MB
Content Notes: Korra/Asami AU. Violence consistent with the source.
Summary: I'll drive you like a fast car.
Links: Streaming & download @ Vimeo | streaming @ AO3 | download @ Mediafire. Embed and lyrics below the cut. Vid password: fastcar.

So when I said I wanted to vid everything to Taio Cruz, what I really meant was I wanted to keep vidding Korra to Taio Cruz. The very first time I heard Fast Car, I knew I was not going to be able to resist trying to vid Korra/Asami to it.

This is my first ever attempt to actually construct an alternate narrative in a vid, so! Don't judge me too harshly, but do feel free to offer technical concrit. It's for the best, I have no idea what I'm doing. :D








I'm in a battle with my heartbeat.
The more I struggle, the more I get deep.
I go full throttle down the dark streets,
and there is trouble ahead.

I get weak -
it's like I'm running through a red light.
Girl, you know you make me weak.
I should be hitting on the brakes like, harder, harder.

Girl, you really turn me on (on-on-on).
You know you make my engine run (run-run-run).
And there's no turning back, 'cause we've gone too far.
I'll drive you like a fast car. (Go, go, go.)

It isn't like me to get colder,
but when you're running, you're never quite free.
I really wasn't out to find love,
but now you've found me, and got me all -

weak -
it's like I'm running through a red light.
Girl, you know you make me weak.
I should be hitting on the brakes like, harder, harder.

Girl, you really turn me on (on-on-on).
You know you make my engine run (run-run-run).
And there's no turning back, 'cause we've gone too far.
I'll drive you like a fast car. (Go, go, go.)

I'll drive you like a fast car. (Go, go, go.)

I'm in a battle with my heartbeat.
The more I struggle, the more I get deep.
I go full throttle down the dark streets,
and there is trouble ahead.

I get - I get weak, I get weak,
I get - I get weak, I get weak.

Girl, you really turn me on (on-on-on).
You know you make my engine run (run-run-run).
And there's no turning back, 'cause we've gone too far.

Both of these are brilliant, especially Fast Car, which is everything I want out of Korra! Korra and Asami! Being badasses together! Also friends (and ~more~ ;D)! (I found your constructed narrative really easy to follow, by the way, thumbs up!)

FYI, Mediafire won't let me download Dynamite, and is instead rerouting me to buy "Fashion Star" (which I presume is the music you're using in the vid?) from Amazon.

Yes, it downloaded fine from Vimeo! (Well, for Vimeo levels of "fine": there's something about the way they code their links that doesn't play *quite* as it should with my machine. Which doesn't keep me from downloading it, fortunately.) But with that out of the way...

Thank you for the remaster of Dynamite (throw my hands up yay!) -- I enjoyed it lots the first time, and I'm glad of a prettier version. :-)

But oh, I *adore* Fast Car. Adore adore adore. In part: omg lesbians who with vigorous sex lives who want to get their hands all over each other omg! Also: aw, butch/femme! Also also: all my feelings about what makes Korra and Asami each so sexy as individuals! And I sniggered to find that I don't mind the show's love triangle clips at all when they've been recontextualized to have Mako horning in on Korra and Asami, haha! :-D

OMG, these are so great! Fast Car gives me so much joy :DDD KORRA/ASAMI 5EVER. Korra's big eyes after Asami shakes out her hair all sexy-like is my favourite bit. We're all right there with you, Korra.
