Notes: The tribulations of life and television have delayed this conclusion far too long. Two years after we conceived it, I have the pleasure of finally posting it while sitting next to [ profile] beccatoria once again. From me and my first collaborator on the Cylon Internet: here's to making our own futures, no matter how much time it takes.

End of Line: An Opera House Trilogy

This is a trilogy of vids reclaiming BSG's mythology, theology and mysticism and the interconnected women at the center of it all.  These vids together attempt to present the Opera House from various angles and to capture what it meant to and for different women. Post-finale and its profane Opera House, they also collectively present a reconceptualization of the Opera House as the intersection between life and death and between human and Cylon, representing hybridity in infinite variations: intellectual, emotional, spiritual and physical. The third vid, especially, is based on edits made by Battlestar Redactica, a fan-edited alternate 4.5 by [ profile] cvm_productions. See here for a short explanation of edits relevant to and relied on by the vid and here for a textual explanation of all this, outlined by [ profile] beccatoria, my compatriot in all this Opera House reclaiming.

You will lead them all to their end. End of line.  )

Battlestar Redactica: an alternate season 4.5

CVM Productions presents Battlestar Redactica, a fan-edited, non-profit transformative work designed to offer a coherent alternative to the final 10 episodes of Battlestar Galactica.

Material from all episodes is incorporated and re-arranged to create new storylines and significantly change many of the emotional emphases.

This project is designed as a celebration and reclaimation of an extraordinary story. When answers reduce rather than inspire, we can always ask more questions.

Anything you find here can be freely redistributed or linked, wherever, whenever, however, although I would take it as a personal favour if you did not take credit for having created it yourself.

My deepest thanks to my friends who supported me in this project and put up with the thousand drafts I threw at them.

twitterverse update

The BSG characters on twitter continue to bring me endless joy and LOLZ, and the volume has picked up dramatically in season 4.5 with an influx of new characters (don't miss @Hera_Agathon). Clearly manually archiving the RPG in @cylonhybrid's favorites is no longer sustainable: the previous 30 pages of 20 posts each span October-January, and now we've seen more than that so far this month!

There's now a NEW AND IMPROVED datastream using Y!Pipes: (the description includes further info)

Previous archives remain the same, except that I stripped the altar party in the bathtub room from favorites (it's safe and sound in the documentation post). I realized too late that this was unnecessary and misguided, and I can't put the tweets back now because, in a source of infinite hassles today, they display in the order they were favorited rather than the order they were posted. Votes on whether I should remove everything prior to that from favorites as well, in order to make each archival source unique (i.e. favorites will begin after the screencaptures)?

Hera drew the invitation, isn't she the cutest?

Fingers or flippers, a tail or ten toes, what are they having? nobody knows! )

Guests are encouraged to contribute projections imagining and guiding the course of Baby Flipper’s life:
