Yuletide Fandom: CinderFella

Okay, so after my mistaken public posting earlier today, several people led me to an epiphany, which goes like this: why not share my list of Yuletide fandom links? Maybe people will be swayed and nominate them! Or swayed and WRITE them! Or, you know, just squee with me, so I have joy to tide me over until actual Yuletide.

So here's another one. Everyone I've shown this to has had roughly the same reaction, which goes like this:
  1. I - am not sure I can stand this. Do I really have to watch ALL SIX MINUTES?
  2. Things are looking up! Maybe it won't be torture!
  3. OH MY GOD THAT IS THE GREATEST.
  4. No. No, I was wrong, because this is clearly the greatest.
  5. WRONG AGAIN. That's for SURE the greatest.
  6. Ahahahahahaha.
  7. Awwwwwwwww.
  8. ...It's over? And I can't even buy the music? Suuuuuuuuuck. Better watch it again, I guess.
My point is, it is really important to muscle through the initial part, which is a little hard to take if you aren't a fan of wistfulness, to get to the parts that are the greatest. And I don't want to spoil it for you, so I'm going to link here and then discuss for a bit. Ready? Watch the WHOLE THING.

CinderFella, by Todrick Hall. (Warning for rapid cutting and flashing lights.)

There. If that didn't make you happy, I don't even want to know, because it makes me really, really happy. And I knew as soon as I saw it that it would be a Yuletide fandom for me, because I would take any story in this fandom. The main pairing, obviously - I want to know their happily ever after, because I am seriously invested in it. The princesses, oh hell yes, I want to know all about that - every detail, if you will. The fairy godmother! I want to know what she does on her days off. Anything. Anything at all.

My only real complaint here is that as far as I know I can't actually buy the music. But everything else is glorious.

That was way better than Jerry Lewis, which is my first association with CinderFella.

So, by the time the Fairy Godmother showed up, I was all, this is a thing I like. And then when they started boyband dancing, I was sold. And Janice Dickinson! and Lance Bass!

You are a person of taste.

Okay, you officially nailed that thought process. I mean, I may resort to YouTube2mp3-ing it to take the story with me, but it's not exactly full versions of the songs, yanno?

Um, maybe put a seizure/migraine trigger alert in? I don't even get seizures or migraines, and the rapid cutting and flashing lights were still hurting my eyes.

Ho-oly fuck. O.o

I feel like I'm not even sure that there is a main pairing. That seems a little too mainstream for these folks, kind of like McDonald's statement that "Gay marriage is kind of tame for me. I'm into shit you wouldn't even believe."

That said, SECONDING YOUR OPINION ON THE PRINCESSES.

Plus, I have never had a song totally redeemed in a single line, the way I Kissed a Girl was there.

CinderFella for Yuletide - what a *brilliant* notion!

This was truly uplifting! And my sad ignorance of boybands initially gave me a happy minute thinking Prince Charming was being played by Renfield Turner. *happy sigh*

Oh, that was spectacular. And yes, that was pretty much the thought process that I went through. *g*

That was brilliant. It's going straight into my favourites for easy rewatching. Your thought process timeline was dead on!

What on earth would I do without you to show me things I did not even know were missing from my life? This was brilliant and I now have to watch it again to catch what I missed while I was crying with laughter after Lance Bass showed up.

You're right, that was almost exactly my thought process for this. The Disney references in the music were just perfect.

I think I might need some sock puppet accounts to sign up for Yuletide with me, just to request everything I want this year.

I skipped number 1 as I like wistful Disney song mashups:)

I really really hope someone writes this for Yuletide, or you know, NOW.

Utterly wonderful, thanks for sharing!

Hey, off topic, but: if you get a reply to your tweet about the earthling tweeting from someone whose name you don't know (and it looks like a real-person name) that'd probably be me!

(Ugh, too many uses of the word "tweet" in one sentence, sorry!)
