Many thanks to jalu2 for the lovely music prompt. Once I settled into this it was such a joy to make. I hope it's a little of what you were thinking for this song. :) Thanks to the lovely ladies el1ie and cassiopeia7 for their generous feedback. It's always difficult to know what a video is doing after you've watched it a gazillion times. Thanks for the thumbs up gals! Thanks also to tebtosca for keeping the spn_j2_xmas exchange going. It's such a wonderful event to participate in.


When I listened to this song all I could think about was the intimacy of the Impala and the way it carries the boys from place to place. A small narrative was running through my head when I was making this - Dean's unrequited love for Sam. Initially Sam isn't sure but by the end I've left the suggestion that maybe, just maybe, he is. But, if you don't want to view it like that it could easily be just the two of them growing comfortably older together. This also gave me a chance to use some of the gorgeous cinematography Supernatural often spoils us with.

Loved watching the vid, you did an amazing job! :-)

Thank you very much! And hi - haven't seen you around LJ for a while. :))

Lovely! Those looks they only have for each other... *dreamy sigh*
I had a couple of really rough days, and this made me smile, so thank you so much! <333 I'll probably watch this again and again.

Hi. I'm sorry to hear you've had some rough days, but I'm happy this brought about a smile. *hugs*
21st-Dec-2015 05:24 pm (UTC)
Aw this is wonderful! Pretty of course, the boys, the landscapes, but also deeply touching. I like the contrast between the wide open space outside and, as you say, the intimacy inside the car. Just lovely.
22nd-Dec-2015 02:44 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! They film the landscapes and the road so beautifully it's great to be able to use in a vid. Thanks for watching and commenting. :)

There's just something so perfect about the Winchesters, the open road and Baby and this vid captures that beautifully.

I love it, you are a star!
22nd-Dec-2015 03:07 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much hun! <33
21st-Dec-2015 05:46 pm (UTC)
Awww.... you captured exactly the *that*.... want that back to stay
22nd-Dec-2015 03:07 pm (UTC)
:D Thank you! <3
21st-Dec-2015 06:01 pm (UTC)
Awww, that is such a heart warming vid! Wonderful!! ♥♥♥ *clap, clap*
I loved the shot in the beginning, of the steering wheel with the rainbow colour light slowly flooding over it. It felt so meaningful, symbolizing their lifes on the road (in the car) together. :)
23rd-Dec-2015 04:32 am (UTC)
Thank you hun! The Baby episode gave us so many lovely shots - it was great to be able to use them in this. :))

I hope you have a lovely Christmas honey. *smish*
21st-Dec-2015 06:41 pm (UTC)
This is lovely--all those gorgeous shots of the car, and the road, and the intimacy of the car's interior. There's such a rich layered history between these men, and the car is the keeper of so much of it, and that includes the familiarity and fondness between them. What a lovely holiday gift! Thank you for sharing it with us, as well as its intended recipient.

Thank you!

and the car is the keeper of so much of it

Oh yes indeed. It's something I love about their story. The car has witnessed so much and been there for them through so much.

Thanks for your lovely feedback,<33

Another fabulous creation, hun! :D

Thank you honey! <3

Thank you sooooooooooo much. Ever since I heard this song I wanted to see it, somehow, connected to the brothers and the Impala -- and you did it justice. Perfectly. The atmosphere, the clips chosen, the overall storyline. I was enthralled.

Thank you again. I love this amazing Christmas gift.

Happy holidays! xx
22nd-Dec-2015 04:25 am (UTC)
Yay!! So glad you liked it! Thanks for the song prompts. I actually started on the other song first but was struggling with it (though I love the song for SPN), so I tried this one and it started to feel right. :)

Have a great Christmas and holiday break! <33
22nd-Dec-2015 04:14 am (UTC)
Wow, this is beautiful, so many gorgeous shots all perfectly chosen to show the boys and their home with baby and on the road💖 I really enjoyed watching this and a great song to go with.
23rd-Dec-2015 12:44 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! It was a lovely song prompt and it gave me a good opportunity to use some of those lovely Impala shots. :)
22nd-Dec-2015 04:55 am (UTC)
This made me fall in love with show all over again...because it reminded me it isn't all tragic...thank you!
23rd-Dec-2015 12:46 pm (UTC)
Indeed! I often need reminding it isn't all tragic too. And in fact, at the heart of it, it's more a message of positivity because they enjoy the simple things in life - like each other, the road and their car. :)

Thanks so much for watching and commenting. :)
22nd-Dec-2015 05:17 am (UTC)
Stunning! So intimate and lovely, and all the body-of-water shots are the best haha

I'm glad I helped inspire this in some small way :P
22nd-Dec-2015 03:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you hun! And thanks for the encouragement when I needed it. That helped a lot. <33
22nd-Dec-2015 08:41 am (UTC)

23rd-Dec-2015 12:26 pm (UTC)

Have you tried to add the extension "hola" to your Firefox or Chrome browser? Start it and tell hola you're in the US or UK. It usually works.

Good luck!

22nd-Dec-2015 03:38 pm (UTC)
Beautiful as always! Your vidding skills are truly AWESOME!

Thank you!

23rd-Dec-2015 12:28 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! :) That's a lovely compliment. <3

Lovely video, Ash! Great brotherly moments. :D
23rd-Dec-2015 12:28 pm (UTC)
Thank you! <33
23rd-Dec-2015 02:48 am (UTC)
This also gave me a chance to use some of the gorgeous cinematography Supernatural often spoils us with.

It certainly did! Very nice stroll down memory lane with some of those shots. I love the focus on the Impala as well as Sam and Dean.
23rd-Dec-2015 12:30 pm (UTC)
I'm a sucker for memory lane when it comes to this show. :) Some gorgeous cinematography back then (and recently *g*)
23rd-Dec-2015 02:54 am (UTC)
this was so wonderful and pretty
23rd-Dec-2015 12:30 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! :)

What an absolutely brilliant, touching video. Thanks ever so much for sharing it. *hugs you*
26th-Dec-2015 06:27 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm thrilled you thought so. <3
23rd-Dec-2015 04:34 am (UTC)
As usual your clip choice and editing are wonderful. Even when it's a (relatively) random collection of clips, they still flow together and make sense.
26th-Dec-2015 06:28 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! :D
23rd-Dec-2015 11:25 am (UTC)
*EEEE* This is so awesome and pretty and happy-making!!! Love that you used so many of the beautiful wide shots and the moments with boys in the car. ♥
26th-Dec-2015 06:29 am (UTC)
Thank you!! It's wonderful that the show gives us such great clips to work with. :))
23rd-Dec-2015 02:06 pm (UTC)
Oh honey, now I've had chance to sit and watch and absorb this it's absolutely stunning! I choked up, I smiled so hard, I clapped my hands and marvelled at your genius! Wonderful work, as always!
26th-Dec-2015 10:01 am (UTC)
Thank you bb! That's wonderful feedback. <33

Happiest of Christmas's and the best New Year to you!
