Many thanks to zubeneschamali for the song. I really enjoyed vidding to it. I hope it's a little close to what you had in mind for it. :) Thanks to counteragent and deirdre_c for taking the time to give me some (wonderful) feedback.

And special thanks to bertee for organising and matching up the gifters and giftees. I was thrilled to be able to make something for zubeneschamali as she is one of my favourite writers. <33


When I listened to the song it made me somewhat nostalgic for old time Supernatural so I vidded all the things that made me fall in love with the show in the first place - though there's newer footage in there too. ;) Apologies to Zuben for trimming the song. I was seriously running out of time and I was struggling to work out the third verse. /o\ Hope ya still like it! ;)

Thank you bb! I am really thrilled you liked it! (still recovering from no re-edits…:D)

I may or may not have clapped like a sea lion. I couldn't possibly say.
20th-Dec-2013 11:58 am (UTC)
Ha! Sea lion clapping…:D Possibly…

This is the most perfect thing ever and I love it. I will squee more coherently and in greater detail later on, but for now, know that this is EXACTLY what I had in mind and you are perfect. :D

Hey honey! *phew* I'm so glad you like it. Usually when I make something for someone I check with them before I post it to make sure it's doing the "right" thing. As I wasn't able to do that with this I checked with the lovely deirdre_c to see if there might have been anything in there you might not want.

I really love the song. Bruce seems so perfect for the SPN universe - I love that it conjures up what I feel is essentially the essence of the show. So... thanks!

Fun and moving and surprisingly literal (in a good way)! Let's watch it on the big screen tomorrow!
20th-Dec-2013 12:07 pm (UTC)
Hey! I'm so glad you liked it. :) And yeah - it's tricky with literal lyric interpretations - sometimes it can work and other times it can feel heavy handed (and why I always get my vids beta'd because I'm pretty good at being heavy handed at times! *g*)

Another fun day today! So great to re-watch and chat (and eat!). <33
19th-Dec-2013 04:05 pm (UTC)
So freaking fantastic, bb!! <33
20th-Dec-2013 12:07 pm (UTC)
yay! thank you so much! <3
19th-Dec-2013 04:12 pm (UTC)
\o/ Watching this makes me feel SO good!!! :D

20th-Dec-2013 12:08 pm (UTC)
Woot! Yay for feel good SPN feels! <333
19th-Dec-2013 04:56 pm (UTC)
Oooo I love it! And you even got the 'why we can't have nice things' bit in there too! x
20th-Dec-2013 12:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you! and yes…for some reason I simply had to include a clip of sleepy Sam and bottle throwing Dean. It just feels so…them.
19th-Dec-2013 04:56 pm (UTC)
I love it. It makes me want to have a 9-day supernatural marathon.

20th-Dec-2013 12:09 pm (UTC)
Thanks! (And I enjoyed a mini-marathon today. It was fun! *g*)
19th-Dec-2013 06:48 pm (UTC)
Okay. So. The place where I started to cry? The amulet! The place where I laughed out loud? The Battle of Moondor. The reason why I still have a huge smile across my face? The clips after the closing credits started. The reason why my heart feels too big for my chest? The whole dang thing!

I got a new BluRay player that will play videos from YouTube on my big screen TV. This is the first thing I want to watch on it!
20th-Dec-2013 12:16 pm (UTC)
Oh yay! Thank you honey. I really wanted to capture that mix of emotion. I think one really important aspect of the "not surrendering" is that they can go on no matter what. There's all those awful moments but it's tempered with "home" and love and the road. It's a balance that seems to work for them.

I'm not sure how well it will go on the big screen. The quality might not be quite good enough? (sadly). But yay new BluRay player! :D
19th-Dec-2013 08:20 pm (UTC)
Springsteen!!!!! Such an awesome, feel good about SPN video. Great with all the 'we've got work to do' along with the promise to never surrender lyric. Stormy night with angels falling. Such a kick-ass vid.
20th-Dec-2013 12:22 pm (UTC)
Thank you SO much hun! <33
19th-Dec-2013 08:45 pm (UTC)
Aaaaaaaahhhhhh! This is so wonderful.
20th-Dec-2013 12:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you! :DD
19th-Dec-2013 09:41 pm (UTC)
Springsteen + Sam & Dean + ash48 = Sheer perfection!

Brilliant! You really have outdone yourself this time, bb. REALLY. ♥♥♥
20th-Dec-2013 12:32 pm (UTC)
Awwww thank you honey! I was so happy to be given that song to vid. It's possibly not one that I would have thought about - and Bruce and SPN fit so well!

19th-Dec-2013 10:27 pm (UTC)
Ohhh, this is perfect and wonderful, and if 4shared wasn't being so beastly, it would be mineminemine already. As it is, I'll bookmark it so I can watch wheneverIwantto! (I do what I want!)

Seriously, I love this sooooo much. Thank you!
20th-Dec-2013 12:37 pm (UTC)
Thank you honey!! <3

And I uploaded a copy to sendspace for you…;) Maybe that will work better?


20th-Dec-2013 12:46 am (UTC)
Boo. I think something's wrong with my browser. Youtube vids haven't been playing for a few days.
20th-Dec-2013 12:39 pm (UTC)
Oh boo…:(

I've added a sendspace upload if that helps at all…;)
20th-Dec-2013 02:59 am (UTC)
This was so fun to watch! I love how you wove in newer footage and it still felt like an old school episode. And the song vocals + Moondor sync was fantastic :)
20th-Dec-2013 12:40 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm so glad you noticed the Moondor sync…it kinda made me chuckle a bit when I did that…:)

20th-Dec-2013 04:36 am (UTC)
There's a HUGH SMILE spread all over my face and it just needs to be said...

20th-Dec-2013 12:41 pm (UTC)
Oh wow! What a great pictorial comment. *beams*

Thank you! <3333
20th-Dec-2013 05:01 am (UTC)
Yessssssssssssssss!!!! I just watched this like 5 times in a row, with a huge grin on my face :) :) Glorious!
20th-Dec-2013 12:42 pm (UTC)
Woot!! So glad you enjoyed it honey! *G*
20th-Dec-2013 07:35 am (UTC)

Thank you very much! :D <3
20th-Dec-2013 12:25 pm (UTC)
What a ride! I loved this, it's like a collage of why I loved the show so much!

Thanks so much for sharing. :)
22nd-Dec-2013 12:38 am (UTC)
Thank you! My aim was to include as many things that I love about the show as I could. :))

20th-Dec-2013 02:29 pm (UTC)
Oh - **claps with glee** THERE'S my show! :))

Marvellous, love the cutting through all the shooting shots and you really nailed a couple of those lyrics with a perfect clip. Beautiful and precise work hon, a real treasure. Thank you so much.
22nd-Dec-2013 12:40 am (UTC)
Hey darlin! Thank you!! When I heard this song it conjured up such nostalgia for the ..um…old time show. I'm so glad you liked it!! <3333
20th-Dec-2013 02:41 pm (UTC)
Loved it!
22nd-Dec-2013 12:40 am (UTC)
Yay! Glad to hear! :)
20th-Dec-2013 05:26 pm (UTC)
great vid! withdiamonds pointed me here, and I wanted to let you know how terrific this is
22nd-Dec-2013 12:41 am (UTC)
Hi. Thank you so much for dropping in to let me know. So glad you enjoyed it. <3
20th-Dec-2013 10:48 pm (UTC)
Well, you just reduced me to a puddle of tears. Damn, this is awesome <3 I love that you had lots of humour in there as well, not just the serious moments. I don't know much about vidding, but this is pretty amazing.
22nd-Dec-2013 10:38 am (UTC)
Hi. Thank you so much! I see the humour in their lives (or the lighter moments) as the way they actually manage to survive that is the horror of their lives. I love that the show can balance that. :))

Thank you so much for watching and commenting. :))
