Vid Rec Day 2

Title: Needful
Vidder: fenlings
Song: My Skin by Natalie Merchant
Fandom/Pairing: Due South - Fraser/Rays (I feel it's more romantic towards RayK and friendshippy towards RayV, but the vidder has it down as "Raysexual" so...)
Why I Love It: Man, there are no words for how much this vid moves me. I always think of Fraser as this happy fun character but this vid shows all of his dark sides. Shines a light on how he can be alone in a crowd, the deep emotions that he feels and how others hurt him. It even shows the darkness that lives within himself. The beginning of the vid just pulls you down and really makes you *feel* for Fraser.
And then, just when your heart is breaking for him, the vidder begins to bring in tidbits of the happier times (shown mostly through the Rays) but is constantly contrasting it with the darker aspects of Fraser. I love all the stories that are being told throughout this vid, and how they all come back to Fraser, painting this dark picture, but also showing that this is *Fraser*. It makes a great character study. I really can't recommend this vid enough.
