Also, doh! I can't believe I forgot to watch Supernatural! Well, it's on right now, but I don't want to have missed the beginning :( I'll just have to download it and watch tomorrow. :S
Title: Welcome Home
Song: The Blood of Cu Chulainn by Mykael and Jeff Danna
Fandom/Pairing: Stargate Atlantis
Why I Love It: It’s a beautiful Celtic song, with many layers, and permetaform uses those layers. In this vid she does a broad retelling of season 1, but instead of doing it in the boring linear manner that many others have done, she twists and twines it into the layers of the music. The effect is that there can be more then one story line as the current focus.
I also love that, while it mostly shows the main characters, the other people on the show are brought in too. You see the Athosians, and un-named scientists, and feel that this is more then just a small group of people, it is in fact a community, a home.
Title: Angels Would Fall
Song: Angels Would Fall by Melissa Etheridge
Fandom/Pairing: SG-1 - Jack/Daniel
Why I Love It: I've always loved the concept of this vid. Jack/Daniel was never one of my pairings, but preferred pairings never seem to matter to me when it comes to vids. I like the idea that Jack wants Daniel and is a little in awe of him and a friend as well, and while Daniel sees Jack he's much more focused on looking up at, well I would say intangible but that's not the case, other bigger things. I particularly love the bit where the lyrics are "there's no one here they want to hang around" and how it's Jack alone in his cell after a torture session with Ba'al and Daniel isn't there. I find this vid really does show some of the big differences between Jack and Daniel. Jack is such an down to Earth guy, who knows what he wants and believes, meanwhile Daniel is always thinking "more!" and the ascended give him a chance to explore that. It's Daniels mindset that draws Oma to him.
I have a question. There's this one vid I want to rec, but the link on the vidders webpage isn't working, I sent the vidder an email asking if it'd be ok for me to upload her vid to a temporary site with full credit and links going back to her but she never responded. Do you think it'd be ok for me to upload it anyways, and take it down if asked? Or should I just assume that it's a no because she never got back to me?
Also, hmm, do you think I could manage to work any more of my fandoms into this post? I feel like changing my icon to some random fandom, just because :P
