I need to learn to condense. I'm just spending way too much time going SO IN DEPTH (!!!) on my insanity.
first part of the final (public-entry-friendly—more on this later) top five is my top five scenarios involving the PpG/RrB in a musical montage. Yeah, it's a mouthful! I've got to give the requester of this one kudos; it was certainly one of the more creative requests!
Ah, so... yeah, I have a ridick amount of scenarios in my head, actually. Most of them are the same thing, particularly the ones set to any j-pop song (most of those are action montages). Those are a lot of fun, but extremely difficult to describe, and I don't have the patience/skill to storyboard it out, much less time them to music. The rest of my montages fall into one of a few categories:
- Actual storyline
- Themed music video (scenes are thematically related but don't necessarily have an arc)
- Self-conscious music video
The action montages can fall in either the first or second category. The first category sometimes becomes inspiration for actual fic. The second category is what I often use/listen to to convey a particular mood in a particular scene—I use them for fight scenes, specific character scenes, etc.. The third category is mostly me being silly (e.g., Townsville's villains dancing to B.E.G.'s “Abracadabra”). These are fun and stupid, frankly.
Due to their nature, these montages on the list fall into the first and third categories.
... Man, I'm not sure how I'm going to begin

Okay dudes, imma have to finish this tomorrow. Plus the TEF trivia. PLUS my camera hookup is all wonky right now, so Saturday's “Show off my geek side” post is still delayed until I can get that working again.
