OMG! This vid...

Always Find me Here by secretlytodream

I don't often gush to this extent over a vid but I absolutely have to with this one. It spoke directly to me and I have an urge to share that. (I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek, but I had nothing, whatsoever, to do with it).


It captures, so perfectly, the messed up, tragic, co-dependent, desperate, beautiful, angst ridden, love driven relationship that these boys have.

It's everything Winchester. It shows the blood that has been shed, the sacrifices made, the pain of words and the loss of trust and faith. It shows that no matter how much their relationship is pushed or ripped apart they find their way back to each other. Which is, essentially, why I am so damn invested in this show. For a vid to be able to capture all that is amazing. And wonderful.

On TOP of that, there's the actual vidding. *GUH* Of course it's expertly edited - if you know Loki's work you've come to expect that. But it's the use of the voiceovers that is also remarkable. The audio is edited in such a way that the sentences become poetic. There's a rhythm and pulse that work with both the music and the footage.

I've watched it a number of times now (which is rare for me) and each time it draws a tear. Not because it's sad but because it encapsulates the power of their remarkable bond so beautifully. The artistry of the vidding is also very moving.


Podfics

I recently discovered podficcer crinklysolution. She has a way of reading that allows you so solely focus on the story. It makes me think of a really good story where you don't notice the words. Her reading is like that. You forget you're listening to someone read and just notice the story.

I recently listened to these two:

In My Dreams You're Blowing Me...Some Kisses written by queenklu Jared/Jensen NC17 (Prostitute!Jensen, Bartender!Jared).

I didn't think this would be a story I'd get into but once I did I loved it. It's a refreshing, honest (and hot!) look at the industry.


Crush written bysonofabiscuit (Sam/Dean NC17)

I LOVE long podfics and this is brilliant! Future fic with a fabulous outsider POV.


I am currently listening to the QB 'verse by pianoforeplay. It's read by the fabulous chemm80 and I LOVE LOVE it! (American Football 'verse. Jared/Jensen (and some pairings) NC17)

I can't believe how much I am enjoying the football side of it. It's actually made me check out American Football on YT! The complicated romance between the boys is absolutely fabulous but I'm loving how detailed and interesting the game information is. (I can't believe I actually get disappointed when the Cowboys lose!) It's also very VERY long (YAY!!)


I'm tacking on some awards I got recently- 'cause they're shiny and I was pleased to received them. :D

I can only agree with Callisto. XD

And thank you for the links- I don't enjoy podfics, but I love to read, so I downloaded the .pdf-files. I'm always looking for well written, long stories!

Congrats on the awards! That ARE shiny!

And thanks so much for all the recs. I'll be checking some of those out. (I'm very glad I rec'd the QB 'verse to you. I thought it held up well for even non-US readers, but it's good to have that confirmed by a friend!)

Thanks hun! :)

And thanks so much for the QB rec. I've been absolutely loving it. I can't believe how interesting the football side of it is. I'm so impressed that the writer knows so much. I'm 1/3 way through Hail Mary at the moment. *g*

Congrats on the awards! You do good work, and I'm glad it's being recognized. Also, I'm so glad you had some words to say about Always Find Me Here, because I often come away from vids without anything I can clearly articulate about it, so reading your thoughts about it will help me the next time I watch it. I liked it when I saw it, and pretty much got the point (which is more than I would have been capable of two years ago), but I know there is more to see in it, and your words will be a roadmap.
23rd-Feb-2012 10:58 am (UTC)
Thank you so much. :)

And I have to say that finding the words was difficult I had quite a few attempts. For me it's one of those vids that said so much about their relationship.

I know it can be hard to "get" everything a vidder might be trying to say sometimes. I often think that once a vid is made and out there it's up to the viewer to take from it what they will. Even if it might not be what the vidder had on their mind. Though I sometimes think vidders can't actually articulate what they are trying to say with the images. It's a kind of gut instinct. I think Loki works very much like that. :)

I'm starting to wonder if I've either read a lot of the stuff in the fandom or I'm at the point where every description sounds familiar to me because it's LIKE something I've read! I thought I'd listened to both those but I can't be sure.

The QB verse is one of my favorite SPN RPS stories ever. But goodness, how many times has she changed her username now? I'm pretty sure I recced it under two different ones at this point.
23rd-Feb-2012 11:04 am (UTC)
Hee... yes. I'm sure there are many stories that are very similar. :)

Ah yes... she has a different name on the actual podfic. I actually don't know this gal, so I wasn't aware she's had a number of different names.

Love the story though. :)
