Vid Rec, Day 3

Title: Touched
Vidder: xandra_ptv
Song: Touched by Vast
Fandom/Pairing: Queer as Folk/Angel the Series - Brian/Angel
Why I Love It: I think this was the first AU crossover vid I ever saw and it's really stuck with me. I loved how she was able to imply the Brian/Angel relationship. It intrigued me how she could find similar scenes within each show and make it look like they were happening together. This vid really showed me how much power a vidder could have if they only reached for it. Xandra did a great job of melding these two shows together and of telling a unique story. I've seen other crossover vids since, but this one is still my favourite.

Mkay, so the weirdest thing just happened. I was looking for QAF vids on youtube and one of the first results was set to "Lovers in a Dangerous Time" by Barenaked Ladies. I'd just been listening to that song yesterday and thinking it'd make a good QAF vid! So I watch the vid and it's really good. Good enough that I bookmark it to download to my iPod later. Then the credits roll, and it says it was made by.... you! LOL!!! Nice work, babe! 'Course now I'll be checking out the rest of your vids and will will have to watch this crossover rec even though I've never seen a minute of Angel. :D

:P I'm not surprised that people forget that I make vids, it's been forever since I made vids with any sort of regularity.

If you want to download the vid, I do have better quality vids over on my webpage.

I'm glad you liked the vid. That song really was calling out to me to make a QaF vid for it.
I hope you like the rest of my vids. The most popular of mine seem to be Hair and Hurt. :)

Well it's not exactly that I forgot, I just was never very into vids when QAF was on the air. I got into them late and still don't watch many. It wasn't really until I started putting vids on my new iPod a few months ago that I started to seek out vids once in a while. So the randomness of stumbling upon yours right after my renewed interest in BNL (since seeing them live last month), and your renewed interest in vids, amused me. Heh guess I should have mentioned all that in the first place. :)

Anyway I'll definitely check out the rest of your vids. Thanks for the links!

Oh, and you don't really need to watch Angel to get the vid. I saw the first 2 seasons, but that's it. Just, Angle is a vampire who runs a PI business, and I think he eventually takes over a law firm, which is what the end of the vid implies.

Oh cool. Thanks for the summary! I do like David Boreanez on Bones so probably would have liked the vid. Sadly the zip file seems to be gone.
