This week's featured article

Constructed reality vids are a long-lived, popular subgenre of vidding, similar to the alternate universe genre in fanfiction.

A constructed reality vid recontextualizes footage from the source (and sometimes footage from outside sources) in order to tell a story that did not happen in canon.

The most well-known constructed reality vid is probably Closer by TJonesy and Killa. It is an AU of the Star Trek: TOS episode Amok Time. In canon, the crew manages to get Spock to Vulcan before his pon farr takes control; however, Closer shows what might have happened if they had not. Although first shown in 2004, it went viral after being posted on YouTube in 2006.
