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.

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. :)

I know what you mean, it takes a rare song to not hate it after listening to it the thousand and one times you need to for vidding. I think 'Roller' is the only one of mine I can still listen to willingly on its own. I can totally see how this song would be one of them.

Okay, granted, it took me a whole week to get back to finally watch this.

But OH MY GOD, ASH. YOU JUST SINGLE-HANDEDLY JUST SOLIDIFIED MY LOVE FOR S6. Like, all those parts, all my favorites and I’ve been trying to fit them together for a Dean vid for months now, and I kept failing miserably, mostly because I wasn’t sure I was feeling the season enough to work on it. OBVIOUSLY I SHOULD HAVE GIVEN UP SOONER! YOU CREATED EXACTLY THE S6 DEAN VID I WANTED TO SEE. UGH, you don’t even understand I’m like in ECSTATICS that you’ve done this. And with this SONG!! The best part, I’ve been listening to it for at least two years, it’s been an instant favorite since the moment I heard it and never once thought Dean, which is stupid because it was PERFECT for this. But mostly I loved how you fit the haunting yet nostalgic dream-like quality of it to match Dean’s whole out-of-his-element but still moving forward S6 so well. UGH and whatever, I’m not going to be able to contain my hysterics enough for a coherent comment, but you had my heartstrings tugged from the first chords and impala leaves and the “thought of you, the way you gone, and how the world spins madly on” on all of the 6.01 montage clips which is just SO ON THE NOSE. UGH. And then the second one Sam coming back, but feeling wrong, with that perfectly placed off-kilter Dean hallucination. The “wished that I was dead” on 6.05, and AKLJAJAJJA SAMS SOUL BEING GONE ON “NIGHT IS HERE THE DAY IS GONE” AHHHHHHH!!!

Also @1:16 HOLY LIPQUIVER BATMAN I NEVER NOTICED THAT. And @2:20, Dean’s smile on that moment, I LOVE THAT YOU GOT THAT, it might just be my favorite 10 second moment of the whole season (apart from the obvious epic hug that is!). AND BY THE DOUBLE SAMNDEAN DOOR SMASH IM SUDDENLY BAWLLLING!!! AND THEN YOU FOLLOW IT WITH THE BOYS AND THE MINI!WINCHESTERS, UGHHHH. SO AMAZINGLY EFFECTIVE.

I have loved A LOT of your vids. And I am always in ridiculous admiration for your level of output. But this, I think this one’s my favorite ever. I WANT TO SMISH IT AND CALL IT GEORGE!!! I’VE WATCHED IT FIVE TIMES ALREADY NOW AND I CAN’T STOP MYSELF FROM HITTING THE PLAY BUTTON!

Oh wow! Wow. You have no idea how thrilled I am by your response. It has seriously made day. (I read it this morning before work and it kept me on a high all day. *g*)

Thank you. Thank you. :D

It's funny because when I first heard the song S6 Dean didn't instantly come to mind. I knew I wanted to vid the song but it wasn't until I started it that it made so much sense for Dean. I had no idea how I was going to fit everything I wanted to in it, but once I got a couple of key moments it started to come together.

I am SO happy all those moments worked for you. I'm thrilled "night is here and the day is gone" came across. I knew I wanted a moment of realisation that Sam was without his soul and that seemed the best lyric to match it to.

I cannot thank you enough for this feedback and response. I will treasure it for always. It will be a place I'll come back to whenever I'm going through those frustrating vidding moments. <333333333
