Fanfic: "All We Know for Truth" [Flying Down to Rio] [Dec. 26th, 2009|12:22 pm]

Title: All We Know for Truth
Author: icepixie
Film: Flying Down to Rio
Rating: PG/Teen for innuendo, I suppose.
Word Count: 1171
Summary: A Fred and Ginger movie where they don't end up together at the end? UNPOSSIBLE! Thus, post-credits shippiness. And drunkeness.

("She was not drunk enough for this conversation. 'I was starting to think you didn't like girls.' Oops. Actually, maybe she was *too* drunk for this conversation.")

Two vids: "A Love That Won't Sit Still" and "Can't Take a Hint" [Dec. 21st, 2009|11:20 am]

[Current Mood |accomplished]

Title: A Love That Won't Sit Still
Song: Stray Italian Greyhound
Artist: Vienna Teng
Fandom: Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers films
Vidder: icepixie
Length: 4:08
Summary: In almost all of their movies, Fred's character spells bad news for Ginger's, at least for a time--he gets her fired, he ruins her auditions, he screws up her engagements, etc. You just want to tell her to run far, far away as soon as he enters the scene. But then, of course, she would never fall in love with him, and there would be no film, and that would be no fun. Besides, he always manages to charm her in the end...

Title: Can't Take a Hint
Song: There She Goes
Artist: The Las
Fandom Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers films
Vidder: icepixie
Length: 2:53
Summary: As I was making the vid above, a collection of Astaire characters tapped me on the shoulder and insisted there be a vid from their POV. Fearing strangulation by white tie, I obliged. So here is a vid about how crazy they are about Ginger's characters. Emphasis on the "crazy," because, let's face it, his character is KIND OF A STALKER in most of these movies. ;)

Hi. I just discovered Fred and Ginger's films about a month ago, and have been devouring them in twice-weekly portions from Netflix. Along the way, I also felt inspired to make some fanworks, and since this appears to be the place to post such things, here they are:

Fanvid: "Happiness," by The Weepies (uses footage from all of the RKO-era films, although Flying Down to Rio makes a rather token appearance).

Streaming and download links at my journal.

I also have a short fanfic for Shall We Dance.

Title: We Were Very Tired, We Were Very Married
Author: icepixie
Rating: It would pass the Hays Code with flying colors.
Word Count: 868
Summary: There's not much room on a ferry, but Peter and Linda dance anyway.

Also found at my journal.
