3 videos in 3 days?! WTF is going on?!
I'll tell you what's going on.
I've been afraid of something for a while now. The fact that all my videos are about Buffy/Spike. Not that I don't love them! CAUSE I DO WITH MY WHOLE HEART AND I WILL CONTINUE TO VID THEM FOREVER AND EVER!! But I've been afraid that I keep making the same video over and over just with different songs. There's only so many times you can use the same scene and make it look different you know? Well you all seem to have faith in me when it comes to my ability to make videos different. which THANK YOU!
So my foray into Community vids was a nice change of pace for me, cause I've been able to come back to my WIP folder with a set of new eyes. 
So that's what I've been doing. I've been opening my WIPS one by one, and determining why I stopped them, if I should scrap them, or if I can bust em out. 
This is one I'd been working on for a while with the help of [livejournal.com profile] ever_neutral (this one's for you!) who kindly agreed to beta for me and gave me wonderful feedback on my progress. And it's finally done! 

Title: I Never Thought About Love When I Thought About Home

WHAT DID YOU DO?

You made me cry. Like, I was watching this and I just started crying. And I don't understand it, but you did it. Like I don't even have coherent thoughts here. It's just tragic and essential.

I was literally having a conversation the other day about how Darla/Angel doesn't hit me where I live and smart, smart people were expressing it to me and it was all ~intellectual~ so I still wasn't feeling it.

But this... I need to go watch it again.

I'm so sorry I made you cry! *hugs you*

I've always been a fan of Darla and Angel. But it wasn't until I started making this video that I understood why. They're evil, and they express how much they hate each other, and they try to kill each other, but deep down, they created each other.
They aren't partners, they aren't equals, they don't make each other better, but they rely on each other. It's this intense connection they have that's hard to explain. Darla says it best after becoming human. That now they're worse than lovers, they're soulmates.

I'm so bad at explaining things! *stupid brain*

Not even! It was a good cry!

Would you post this to tumblr, too? *wants to re-blog*

And that totally makes sense what you're saying, it's just this is the first time that I really felt it viscerally in the totality of their connection. I understand what you're saying, of course, but your video communicated it on a visceral level so I could intuit it and that's what I'm really so grateful for. ♥

Yes. Totally. I love their connection--because it's like it's SO complete that they can't possibly sever it ever. And... I don't know. I love how it's almost as if they hurt each other in order to show each other that they care--that they're connected. Because it's like saying--see, I know you so completely, and I love you so wholly that I can tear you down--down to your dirtiest most shameful parts, and I STILL want you. And I know,even when I do that to you, and even when tear me down to my dirtiest, most shameful parts--I know you still want me too.

I'm becoming a big Darla/Angel gal. I think I may need to find me a Darla/Angel icon.

omg yes! I still have a hard time trying not to beat edit, but i felt it was essential with this video, and her face, when she closes her eyes slowly on a specific melody or looks down on a certain beat, she made it very easy for me.

I feel like this vid is my personal treat for staying up late.

I totally did that on purpose then :)

*ack! I need a Darla Icon STAT!*

You made a Darla/Angel(us) vid! Ack! So awesome. They have so much history together and we hardly see any of it, but you did an amazing job on this. Gonna go watch it again now.

Oh, wow! YOU'RE ON FIRE!, GIRL! :D

This is fantastic! I love the way you have created it, with the repeating moments and the fast-pace editing and the heat you can feel coming off of it! It's a fabulous piece of work! BRAVO!

Dude. DUDE.

The timing of this is so perfect--because I'm totally immersed in Darla/Angel thought right now. It's so wonderful.

This vid is so wonderful. You just... I love it. I love how you capture the how they *belong* to each other. How they have this complete knowledge of each other. You juxtapose images of them being passionate/romantic/almost tender with them being bitterly destructive--like Darla being thrown to the ground after she rises and Angel hesitating to kill her and cut to Angel throwing her to the ground before they sleep together. It's just perfect.

I love when you open your WIP folder! This is the funnest ever.

I often wonder if the people filming these scenes, which are from different episodes and must have been filmed separately from each other, are aware of how similar a lot of them are to each other. Because it was almost TOO easy to find similarities in scenery when it came to linking their past to their present.

I've always loved Darla and Angel, but making this video gave me a new appreciation for them. I often found myself watching an entire episode instead of placing it on my video timeline. (another reason this may have taken me way too long to finish lol)

They are just so tragic and broken.

That was beauiful. (Plus, one of my favourite songs of last year, I always thought someone should make a Buffyverse vid out of it, so thanks a lot for that too.) I really love how you came up with all these repeating visual clues, Angel and Darla and Angelus and reborn!Darla and Dark!Angel and re!reborn!Darla all messing each other up... did I say "beautiful" already?

I love this song so much, and from the moment I heard it I instantly thought of Angel & Darla. ♥

OH MY HEART. I love them so much together. So hot and hurting and evil and yet with moments of tenderness. Well done.

Edit: Do you have a high-res version I could download?
