New Fic: Missed the Saturday Dance  


This project has been a year in the making, and includes video, audio and stories. I have a passion for history, 2am_optimism has a passion for planes, and this is what happened when the two worlds collided.

ETA 2 - This project is now kindly hosted by the Organisation for Transformative Works.

Huge thank yous to my betas, 2am_optimism, iseult_variante, rossywar, cincodemaygirl, serialkarma.

I hope you enjoy!





You can download a hi-res version of this trailer here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=EPHNFSGT
You can download a text file of the full story here: http://www.notapainter.co.uk/mtsd/missedthesaturdaydance.wps
or in plain text here: http://www.notapainter.co.uk/mtsd/missedthesaturdaydance.txt

ETA - I get a lot of queries about the song in the trailer. It's "Everything Depends on You" by the Delta Rhythm Boys.

This looks like the most perfect thing for me ever. History! Planes! McKay/Sheppard! Awesome. I can't wait to delve into it all.

Oh wow! I'm really looking forward to this evening, when I'll have time to explore! Just spotted a little glitch though - both links on the wireless page lead to the same piece, trailer1.mp3.

That was stunning. The video and audio set it up perfectly, and oh all the little details! Heartbreaking and heartmaking, all in one. Gorgeous work, thank you so much for sharing.

This is so damn brilliant, I'm completely in awe. I love it so much! The trailer and the audio are fantastic and the only thing wrong with them, is that I wish there was an actual movie to watch. Because, from reading, watching and listening to all this, it seems there is! Not to say this isn't more than enough, it is, just that you conjure up this whole intriguing universe that I want to see more of.

You are fabulously amazing. :D

*I* wish there was a movie to watch as well! Thanks for the comment :)

Gosh! That was so cool. The whole thing was just beautifully put together, and the story itself was so sweet. Amazing.

That was fantastic, I feel warm all over now. Really, it's insane how flawless the trailer and audio trailers are, you did an amazing job. I can't get over it. I spent 10 minutes trying to articulate to my friend how stunning the whole site was and I just ended up sending her the whole thing.

She loved the trailers, and she doesn't even watch SGA.

Thank you, I'm really glad you and your friend both enjoyed it.

That is really very impressive!! Nice slow subtle build and I'm so glad they ended up happily together forever *snif*. The only thing is, I couldn't read one item: the telegram. Any chance of a transcript of that piece?
that'll give you beeszoetrope on October 19th, 2006 04:57 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much, and I'm sorry you couldn't read the telegram. It says:

"John knew that there were an unlimited number of mistakes in the world. That no matter how educated, experienced, or careful, people always found a way to make a new kind of mistake. He also knew that his problem was that he kept making the same mistake over and over again."

The amount of awesome you are made of to have done something like this, it just, it boggles the mind. I will totally be pimping this. Oh, hell to the yes. *claps like derranged seal*

Well, the bar has been raised so high it's stratospheric. I think we're totally spoiled for any other AU ever.
The sounds, the colours are all perfect and evocative, just like the drab browns so familiar to those of the time.
I think I want to live in your 'verse for ever... I am so grateful you have both the talent and patience to take on such a huge project. You should be very proud of your work.
(sorry for gushing...but it is your fault giving us such a treat *g*)

Oh, how lovely. Thank you, and I'm really pleased you enjoyed it.
mooseme_moose on October 17th, 2006 09:41 pm (UTC)
This is really, really wonderful, and so complete. The trailer especially has that Glenn-Miller-wartime feel to it, and the whole design brings so much to the story. Wonderful.

Thanks so much!
