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.

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. ♥♥♥

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
