Happy FanstRAvaganza!! Sit down and relax! warning: NSFW : Richard Armitage in motion!
I’m picking up a thread from last year when encouraged by Frenz who’s fanvid love I share. It was a last minute thing, I noticed one or two are not even up on YouTube any longer, neither is one I wanted to include today. I’d like to update those but likely won’t have time by this posting!
For those not familiar with the fanfiction term AU: is short for Alternate Universe.
Crossover perhaps describes it better; it simply is picking fictional characters from different “universes” or settings and putting them together. But I DO promise NO slash in these listings. (My favorite is no longer listed on YouTube)
One could argue that so many Guy of Gisborne and Lucas North videos are AU fanvideos as they choose different endings than the original characters.
Its with much gratitude and admiration I link to these talented vidders, hopefully you find a moment to hit thumbs UP
7. 19bt80 : The evolution of Sir Guy : this expresses what we are in anticipation for!
6. TheTeucner : Evil – Sheriff/Guy of Gisborne/Marian : not for the faint-hearted but for Sheriff lovers 😉
5. Blackcousins4life : Crossover (Guy/Marian/Henry/Anne) – Fight for Glory : Guy kills again but someone else!
4. MissDaydreamer101 : Someone Like You : I only came recently upon this pairing & i can’t help wondering how Arthur’s looks would have changed the dynamics in Robin Hood tremendously!
3: Georgette : Wait for me & I’ll be back (Guy & Marian in XXI) : a brilliant told story!
2: Fairykingdom86 : Soulmates Never Die : my first AU fanvid; the song a perfect match to the scenes
1: Summersparkle :
LOVE her style!! It was hard picking ONE : first I was so sure this was #1: I mean he IS all we need at times? 😉 or this : he would make us “Howl” 🙂 but who can deny Adam Lambert as a PERFECT singing voice for Guy: here “For your entertainment” 🙂
Too Rough for You – Anne & Guy :
Do you have any favorites? Feel free to add in the commentary & don’t forget to enjoy any, all of the blogtagteamers!

Interesting. I don’t know anything about vids, so I am bookmarking this post to watch these at my leisure.
March 11th, 2012 at 9:47 pm
Great selections, thanks! My favorite AU fanvid is “Wait for me and I’ll be back (Guy & Marian in XXI century, AU)” by Georgette2012. Here’s the URL: http://youtu.be/cgt-32VtMXQ

Thanks for this, Iz. You know my connection is OHSOSLOW, so what I will likely do is download them later with RealPlayer so I don’t have to let everything buffer. 😉
March 11th, 2012 at 11:45 pm
Good plan!! You must know half of them at least! But if I surprise I’d love to hear 🙂
March 12th, 2012 at 2:01 am
Fanny you did an excellent selection!
Agree with #1 “Rough for you” has a fantastic editing! Wow! This video is really a complete and new (spicy) story!
The only one I did not know was “Evil” and I must admit the pace and the subject “festival of pain” are really intriguing. I love this fanvid.
March 12th, 2012 at 9:23 am
I’m expecting some negative responses to Anne & Guy’s pairing – it might not be to everyone’s view of Guy 🙂 That festival of pain was a surprising find – thanks for stopping by!
March 12th, 2012 at 2:57 am
Wow – people are so clever!! I like #1 too.
March 12th, 2012 at 8:33 am
Glad U was entertained 😉
March 12th, 2012 at 7:57 am
Just watched Soulmates Never Die – can’t resist Lucas, but Lucas and Guy 🙂 I haven’t watched too many crossover videos, interesting concepts. So many talented vidders.
I’ll have to come back and watch the rest when I have time. Thank you for this wonderful selection.
March 12th, 2012 at 8:00 am
What I’ve thinking is one where Lucas then evolves into Thorin!!
March 12th, 2012 at 10:50 am
My fav is #3 Wait for Me and I’ll Be Back
I know there are over 3,000 RA videos and interview posts on Youtube so it is not surprising that I hadn’t seen any of them.
Great choices! Thanks.
March 12th, 2012 at 2:51 pm
That video is beautifully told! Thanks for stopping by Phoebe 🙂

My sentimental favorite is #3. I just think #1 is technically excellent.
March 12th, 2012 at 3:38 pm
“Soulmates” has those sentiments (the song just drives the point) and Summersparkle’s “All I Need” too for the same reason 🙂
March 12th, 2012 at 10:55 am
#1 is in the perfect position. Really well done.

I’ve not seen these cross-over vids before. Very interesting stuff, and so much talent involved.
March 12th, 2012 at 3:09 pm
happy to hear you were “entertained” 😉
March 12th, 2012 at 12:02 pm
awesome! really needed that ! have been having a bad morning. Sometimes a still pic just does not do it.
March 12th, 2012 at 3:08 pm
Can’t agree more & I’m so glad you got some needed theRApy!
March 12th, 2012 at 8:12 pm
YAY!!! Armitage in motion! Wonderful Idea Fanny! Thank You!
