I’d really wanted to watch If/Then. There are some parts that touch my heart quite deeply.

Heartbreaking. The video is even more emotional with the clips from the show included.

When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’

It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?

making fanvids don’t get enough credit from fandoms

Oh my god BLESS THIS POST. I’m writing this not in the tags because this is hella important. It takes /so/ much time to make fanvids - for real. It’s a really hard skill to learn and it has a really steep learning curve. To be actually good really takes serious dedication and time as with any form of art. I wish I could just click a button to create the thing in my head, but I will spend up to 3 hours just editing ONE SECOND of a video. That’s why so many editors only upload things around 45 seconds to 1:30 minutes. It’s damn challenging pulling off an incredibly long edit with an entire song. 
It can take me up to 3 weeks to edit around 60 seconds of a well done edit, regardless of my levels of inspiration and I know I’m not an exception.
Everyone who makes fanvids works so damn hard and yeah they deserve a helluva lot of fandom cred. 


Now I’m going to comment because this is also important. I do not have the patience or skill to make fan videos and I applaud the people who do. We love your work and you are very talented people— thank you for being awesome!!
