MreSundance is a multifandom vidder and fic writer. He has been part of fandom since 2002.

His distinctive vidding style often combines more traditional fandom source with other documents, such as illustrations, pictures, excerpts from poetry, short stories, and fanfiction in order to create a "metanarrative" style vid. Both Whole New Way and I Just Had Sex illustrate this "metanarrative" style.

History

Mresundance has been in fandom since 2002, when he was a member of the Lord of the Rings and Lord of the Rings RPS fandoms, notably through the livejournal community Rugbytackle. He also ran a short-lived LOTR fansite and newsletter called "Hobbit Attack", which is now defunct.

He primarily lurked in fandom until 2006, when he began writing fanfiction for the film Alexander and became heavily involved in The Libertines RPS fandom. He wrote several fanfiction stories for Libertines RPS, including Associate Benefits (a Libertines AU where Pete and Carl work retail), and Drowning Me Sorrows.

In 2007 he became interested in Supernatural and Dark Angel and produced his first vids as a result, most notably Bitch.

In 2010 he became involved in the Sherlock BBC fandom, producing fanfiction and a few vids. His multisource vid, Whole New Way debuted his distinctive metanarrative style by combining source from Sherlock BBC, the Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes film, illustrations by Sydney Paget, an excerpt from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Adventure of the Three Garridebs", fanart and an excerpt from Autopsis by spikeface. The overall effect created a clever, upbeat commentary on the Sherlock Holmes stories and fan involvement in the stories from 1887 until the present.

He VJ'ed the "Epic Bromance" vidshow for Vidukon 2011 where "The basic idea [of the vidshow] is Bromance, gen or slash." [1]

In 2011 he did a Thor vid, I Just Had Sex, which combined footage from the 2011 film, Marvel comics, and mythology to create a humorous critique of the hypermasculinity of the character of Thor. [2]
