Fifty years of fandom.
So it's obviously been a MILLION YEARS (well, fine, four years) since this originally premiered at Vividcon 2012, but we're finally getting it up on AO3! \o/
Song by Billy Joel. Vid originally posted here, at Scribe's dreamwidth. Includes brief images of nudity, violence, and drug use. Oh, and since it's not always clear unless you read the extended notes, we chose sources for this vid that started between 1960 and 2010.
Thanks to petra, redbrickrose, and sparklyslug for betaing, as well as countless other people who helped in millions of different ways, including but not limited to: Zach, Greg, Asa, Elana, Chloe, Bill, Susan, David, Hansi, Rob, Patrick, Tegan, freckles42, fizzyblogic, selenak, such_heights, denorios, spatz, inlovewithnight, copperbadge, the muncle community, the mag7daybook community, the starsky-hutch community, eff_reality, laerwen, second_batgirl, zephyrprince, fiercynn's family, sparklyslug, Hannah, Nora, Paige, Andrew, and SO MANY MORE.
If you're interested in how we matched fandoms to the specific lyrics, we made a spreadsheet that we are very proud of with a complete breakdown.
Oh, and some lovely person put it up on tumblr when it first came out, so here's their rebloggable version.
