Thanks: *heffa hugs* as always to my fab beta _sharvie_. Thanks for the awesome picks up honey and the cheerleading. And special thanks to the lovely el1ie for helping me out when I was stuck in the beginning, for some awesome suggestions and for the lovely feedback.

Vid Notes

I first heard the song when deirdre_c posted it to her journal. The vid was an amazing animation. The song really grabbed me and I filed it away in the "must vid one day" folder. Initially I thought it would be wincest but as I started playing with it Dean grabbed hold and it became his song.

Every time I post a vid I want to indulge myself and write down my thought process for it. Which would be completely boring. So I will refrain. Instead, just briefly: It's season 6 Dean. It's not his whole story. I wanted to include Cas in here somewhere but it just wasn't working so I've focused on Dean's loss of Sam and the journey to getting his soul back. But it's more about Dean's tenacity and the way he keeps going, no matter how madly the world spins for him.

I also wanted a happy ending - or at least a feel good ending because I wanted to show that Dean made the right decision in going after Sam's soul. Dean endured a lot of losses during S6. He did, at least, gain Sam.

No money made but comments are gratefully accepted. :)

ETA: Fic written (inspired by the vid yay) by Novella). It's gorgeous. Mild wincest.

Wow! Does that make my throat hurt and tears spill! Every aspect of it is brilliant and gorgeous and beyond words!

Oh thank you sweetie. That mean a lot. I'm so glad you thought so. Dean has a way of clutching at my heart strings. He's such an amazing character.

7th-Aug-2011 12:41 pm (UTC)
Wow, this is just so captures the essence of Dean in S6, his tenacticty as you say and the way he just keep going, with Sam as the thread that pulls him through. Brilliant work.

Thank you so much MJ. I am so glad that came through. And yeah, Sam really does pull him through. I think Dean's at his best when he's fighting for something he knows is right.

Thank so much for watching and the lovely feedback.

Made me kinda want to rewatch the first part of S6. I might just do that.


7th-Aug-2011 02:11 pm (UTC)
Thanks hun. I thinking rewatching the first half when we actually know what's wrong with Sam has to be easier than when we didn't know what they hell was going on.

Thanks so much for watching. :D

I was starting to tear up by about the second line of the song - just GORGEOUS. You are a genius at this.
7th-Aug-2011 02:14 pm (UTC)
Hi! Thank you so much sweetie. Dean sure has a way of tugging at those heartstrings.

Thanks so much for watching. :D :D

I watched this on youtube and forgot to comment on it lol *g*

So I'll comment here.

I think you captured Dean really well. What get's me angrier than anything is when during this time Dean portray Dean as happy. I mean he thought his brother was locked up for all eternity in the pit he was anything but happy but Dean always manages to roll with the punches and continue on even if his heart is breaking inside.

Awww, thanks for coming back to comment here hun.

Yeah.. it was pretty tough to watch Dean in a domestic life after Sam's death. I never felt like he was exactly happy as such. he was certainly troubled - which was how I was trying to show him in the beginning of the vid.

Thanks again.

Aw! So sweet. I love those boys. And I love your vid. :-)
8th-Aug-2011 07:14 am (UTC)
Thanks so much honey. I have to say I have rather a soft spot for those boys also...;)

7th-Aug-2011 04:26 pm (UTC)
Awww, so Beautiful! This tugged at my heart.
This vid is wonderful! Excellent job as always :)
8th-Aug-2011 07:14 am (UTC)
Yay honey! Thanks so much. So glad you liked it. <333

What an aptly named band. *sniffle* Yes, this. I'm with you Dean made the right decision, and this was the Dean I saw in S6, his distress at losing Sam and then losing Sam in a different way, and all he did to try to get him back.
8th-Aug-2011 07:17 am (UTC)
Hee! The band name makes me smile...

Dean had it really rough in S6 (well... when doesn't he have it rough?) but he somehow manages to pull through. I know the decision to get Sam's soul was touch for him but I felt he knew he did the right thing. Even when Sam was suffering as a result.

I'd like to have been able to show more of his story, but I think that will take another song.

Thanks so much for watching and commenting sweetie. <333

Ahhhh! Ash! You vidded s6 dean to that weepies song!! Break my heart forever!! I'll be watching first thing when I get home

8th-Aug-2011 07:19 am (UTC)
Yes! I couldn't resist. *bites nails* I hope you like it well enough. The funny thing is, I usually hate a song for a while after I've vidded it. No this one. I'm still able to listen without running a mile. :)

Great song choice which matches S6 Dean pretty well. Awesome job with matching clips and pacing with the tune. I think there's something about "still" in the lyrics and you freeze it there. It's still hard to watch Dean get vamped and Sam's face during. Thanks for the upbeat tic at the end.
8th-Aug-2011 10:49 am (UTC)
Hi. Thank you so much. And yes. There was just something about playing with that stillness that I wanted to try. Initially I pictured a still Dean with imagines moving around him but it became too messy.

And the scene when Dean gets vamped is, for me, the hardest thing to watched all season. Possibly all series.

Thanks so much for watching. :D
8th-Aug-2011 10:52 am (UTC)
Wow... thank you. That's a lovely thing to say. <33

Dean goes through such a mix of emotions I felt I needed (or wanted) to capture as many as I could.

and YAY!! 23 eps! I CAN NOT WAIT!! \o/
7th-Aug-2011 08:47 pm (UTC)
OK...where do I start?
You managed to show "Dean's madly spinning world" in such a delicate, tender and beautiful way that it did leave me speechless (as I mentioned on YT).
I very much love the colouring. It embraces the vid, enhances the feelings radiating off of it.
Moments that caught my eye: 0:53 with Dean sliding into bed. It took a moment to find out that it has to do with him moving in line with the music. I'm sure you adjusted the scene until it was perfect.. ;)
I love the scene of desorianted Dean (1:03/1:05) as a fade layed over the photos of his life with Lisa and then just returned soulless Sam.
1:18-1:24 is just beautiful. I can't even tell you exactly why, but it's beautiful.
The scene change from 1:50 as a fade is great. It does something to me emotionally.

Truth is I love everything about this vid, the only other time I felt like this was when I watched your Castiel vid. It has the same tender touch on emotions that reaches deep into the viewers heart rather than rubbing them in dramatically. As if you found the soul of the emotion.(If that makes sense.)

It's a real gem this vid!! I bow to you deeply. ♥♥♥
8th-Aug-2011 12:33 pm (UTC)
Wow... thank you so much sweetie. This means a lot. I'm so glad this touched you. And to say I found the soul of the emotion is an amazing compliment. The song moved me and I reckon that's always a good starting point with a vid. (though it fought me for quite a while.)

I'm glad the disorientated Dean bit worked - I had to play with that a few times so I'm glad you pointed that bit out.

That section from 1.18 is kinda weird because, other than the drinking clip, that was my first edit and it just felt right. I don't quite know why either.

Thank you SO much for your lovely feedback sweetie. <33333

Utterly beautiful. You had me from the beginning...gorgeous, sad, and wistful. You do a wonderful job giving Dean the credit he is due for the choices and sacrifices he made for his brother.
8th-Aug-2011 12:36 pm (UTC)
yay thank you so much honey. I really wanted to show that some how Dean's sacrifices were worth it. I remember how much happier Dean was once Sam had returned - almost back to the Dean we once knew. It was great to see Sam grateful as well. Awwww these boys.... what they do to us.

Thanks so much for watching and for your lovely comment. <33

That was so beautiful :D
8th-Aug-2011 12:36 pm (UTC)
Thank you! :D

Awwww! Lovely!

Thank you sweetie! :D
