Amazing story inspired by the vid by stillwaters01

Thanks to my super betas and feedback givers _sharvie_, my_sn_therapy and maichan (yep! I need a lot of hand holding *g*). Thanks so much lovely ladies *hugs*<333


I heard this song as an intro for a podfic recording and it kept haunting me. It spoke to me of the fallout from supernatural encounters, not just for Sam and Dean but for the many others that cross their paths.

This song was written by James Blunt about the Kosovo War. I don't mean to trivialise the suffering of the people he sung about by making a fanvid to the song - I just felt it suited the people who inhabit the Supernatural universe.

Comments are always loved. :)

This was just so, so gorgeous. And you're right. It fit our poor, sorrowful Supernatural world almost too well.

Just adore your vids... &hearts

*hugs* thanks so much hun. <33

Absolutely gorgeous, stunning in concept, wonderful use of colour and such a starkness of grief - I'm utterly in awe. Can't believer you were worried about this, it's perfect.
19th-Jan-2011 08:31 am (UTC)
Thanks so much honey. So glad you liked the use of colour. It's the thing I angst about the most. :)

I always thought that "No Bravery" was a song that belong to the Winchesters and you certainly did it justice.

Can I have a tissue now, please?
19th-Jan-2011 08:32 am (UTC)
Thank you so much honey! That's a lovely thing to say.

*passes tissues*

Oh, wow!

I presume this is the angsty vid you posted about earlier? I knew it would be brilliant, and boy is it!

Very powerful stuff indeed, a lot of the fall out of the hunts regarding the victims of the MOTW is skirted over in he show, in favour of the boys storylines and emotion, and you brought their relatively untold stories to the forefront in a really emotional and heart breaking way.

From a technical/artistic perspective...guh. The little flashes of colour admist the black and white, like the explosion from the window and the blood from the crib was stunning!

So, yeah, beautiful job, well done! ♥
19th-Jan-2011 08:39 am (UTC)
Yep! This is that vid.

Thank you so much for your lovely feedback.

I always wonder about some of the people the boys meet. They witness and experience such horrors, it must be life changing for them (especially the children..)

So glad you like the colour. It's one thing I really struggled with.

Thanks again. <33

{{{Ash!!!}}} Damn. Just . . . damn.
19th-Jan-2011 08:39 am (UTC)
Hee! Thanks... :)
18th-Jan-2011 07:20 pm (UTC)
Oh ash, this is one of the most beautiful Supernatural videos I've ever seen. So powerfully moving and dramatic, I absolutely love it!
19th-Jan-2011 08:40 am (UTC)
Oh wow.. really? That's..

Thank you. That's a lovely compliment and means a lot coming from you.

This is sooo heartbreaking, words don't really do it justic...

But still: I really loved Gordon in this. Especially as it is the moment just after he had killed his friend. That gives it such an edge.
As usual you chose unbelievably fitting clips and editet them perfectly to create a certain mood. Love the colour flash with the fire explosion. And the short change to colour at 1:24, 2:02 and 2:41. It does something to me emotionally but I can't explain it. Also love 2:07 with Luci like an overlay. It's chilling. And all that after you had such problems first to vid this! It's a killer vid in all it's sadness and hopelessnes. Extremely well done, hun! ♥

*hugs* Hee! Love the bawling emoticon...:D

Yay.. for loving Gordon. I will never forget that moment in that episode. It gave us real insight into the character (credit to the actor I think..) - he may have not been such a nasty sort if he hadn't have had his early experience with the supernatural.

I'm so glad you liked the colour. It's the thing that took the longest to get right. I'm lucky to have betas who help me through this stuff.

I'm thrilled you liked it sweetie. I had you in mind when I was making it. I knew you wanted to see a vid to this song.
19th-Jan-2011 08:58 am (UTC)
I feel like somebody stuck a knife in my bowels and twisted it a few times. Was that your intention?

Hee! Oh dear... um, no...well... yes, maybe..;) Getting a strong reaction to a vid is definitely something that's nice to hear.

I love that there is no resolution or context in this vid

Yes.. that was something I wanted from the start. I didn't want to end with any sense of hope. I mean, I know in most cases the boys "save the day".. but it still leaves people having had their lives changed through their supernatural experience.

And now I'll go and put "When you're smiling" and "Love shack" on endless loop,

Hee! I am, in fact, in the middle of making a short little lighthearted vid for a little relief after this one. :)

Thanks so much for your lovely feedback hon.
18th-Jan-2011 08:20 pm (UTC)
Grief is such a throughline for me in this show and you've bought it out here in such heartbreaking beauty. Bravo! *sniffle*
19th-Jan-2011 09:00 am (UTC)
Yes. We are so often left with a sense of heartache after an episode. (Hee.. and yet we keep coming back for more..)

Thanks for the feedback hun. <333
18th-Jan-2011 08:53 pm (UTC)
God, this is so beautiful and touching. Loved your work and I liked that you choose to focus not only on the "usual" characters but on many people we've seen in Spn throughout the years. Bravo!
19th-Jan-2011 09:06 am (UTC)
Thank you so much. I always like the idea of using some of the lesser known characters - I think the Show has given us some interesting characters and stories over the years.

Thanks so much for the feedback.
18th-Jan-2011 10:18 pm (UTC)
Oh my God! I actually avoided watching for a bit - lack of trust, too much trust? You decide. Anyway, you'll understand when I say "bitch".

ps why is the screen blurry?

ps love the opening sequence - even without the warning, I knew I was in trouble. Your work has grown tremendously, congratulations! (..on ripping out my heart! Yeah, yeah, it's all about me....NOT!)

Well done - it'll do well when we're in New Orleans - I refuse to give up!

19th-Jan-2011 09:10 am (UTC)
lack of trust

Hee! You don't trust me... ??!!

well, I'm glad you trusted me enough to check it out. Sorry for the blurry screen.. ;)

Your work has grown tremendously, congratulations!

wheee.. thank you!

I refuse to give up

well, I haven't given up completely... but *yikes* wish it had been in LA. I could afford that!

Thanks so much for watching hun.

This was really very moving Ash. And just so heart achingly sad. What a perfect song for the theme of tragedy in the Supernatural universe. I can totally see why such lyrics would bring those scenes to mind. Superbly edited once again, seamless transitions - I loved it even as a big fat tear rolled down my cheek. *applauds* And now please - can we have an antidote? *looks all hopeful*
19th-Jan-2011 11:59 am (UTC)
Thanks so much hun. Sorry about the tear...

But yes! I am working on the antidote now. Just a upbeat little vid to celebrate the end of the hellatus. :D

Thanks for the feedback. <33

(And OMG... Sad Sammy face is.... so sad... :((( )
