I've been wanting to vid Sam's speech from Houses of the Holy for ages. It breaks me every time - looking back and knowing how much Sam suffered, even though he was saved from his so called destiny. For me this vid is about being able to use images to express what I think of when I now hear that speech. I could write an essay about all this - why I chose each image, the connections etc. so if something doesn't make sense feel free to ask...;)

ETA: The "essay" mentioned above. The whys and wherefores of my clips choices etc.

No money made but comments are gratefully and warmly accepted. <33

I hope I've already told you what this means to me, so I'll just sit here in the corner with this vid and my box of tissues and not come out for a while.

Bravo hon - THIS is what show means to me and always will. Thank you.

P.S, I love your banner, it looks lovely.

*hugs*... you know...:) <3

I'm glad you think the banner is ok. I'm such a fraud when it comes to graphics, but I like to play...;D

Oh, my God. Oh, my God. This is PERFECT. Every pairing of image and dialogue, every dissolve. One of your best works ever -- and considering your works, that's saying a lot. I don't have any questions right now, but I'd surely love to read an essay on how/why you made this.

BRB, gone off to cry.

Wow...thanks so much hun. <3 That's lovely feedback.

hee.. I'm sure an essay would be very boring. Though I've always wanted to wax lyrical about the process of putting a vid together..

But...OMG...where the hell is that pick of Jared from? Is that a manip? *hearts* it.

I love that dialogue from Houses of the Holy, so damn much! You really did it justice here. (The selection of the amulet scenes in particular resonated with me.)

Now I want you to write the essay!
31st-May-2012 02:09 pm (UTC)
That dialogue is just perfect isn't it? Sam's fears...Dean's reassurances, their connection.

The amulet represents so much. I used it here because of it's connection to God in canon, but also the connection between the brothers.

Eek..essay. I always have the urge to dissect a vid and explain each and every clip choice etc, but I'm sure it would be pretty boring to everyone else....(though I might just do it one day...).

Thanks for watching hun.

Saaaaaaam... ;__;

I have nothing coherent, sorry. Too busy weeping, here.
31st-May-2012 03:28 pm (UTC)
*meep* I know...Sam makes my heart ache...He suffers and suffers and soldiers on.

31st-May-2012 12:42 pm (UTC)
A tissue would be handy right about now.

31st-May-2012 03:39 pm (UTC)
*hands tissue*

Sorry hun, but also... thanks! So glad you watched. <33

Umm... so I decided I couldn't leave this alone and recc'd the vid at ohsam. Hope you don't mind. :)

OMG! Are you kidding?! Thank you! That blows me away. *hugs*

yessum... you really love, LOVE, Sam, eh?

That particular speech devastated me, (one of Padalecki's finest moments, and a hint of what he is capable of portraying) and it used to haunt me for a number of reasons. Thought I'd got it out of my head, but ......ummm....!thanks :(

*sniff* Dammit Ash - ALLLLLLLL the feelings. It strikes me here - each of their (Sam and Dean) inner struggles so vastly different from each other and yet still resonate with the echoes of the same yearnings. Sam to be saved, Dean to feel loved and worthy. There's this ceaseless desire in each of them which is heartbreaking and conversely is also the mettle and the steel strengthens their resolve to never ever give up or give in.

And yes yes. It's their struggles that makes (and has made) them so strong. It's interesting that this season we had Dean plastering on a smile to hid his inner turmoil and Sam just trying to keep his head in the game. By the end they seemed to have succeeded - only to have it all ripped from under them at the very end.

(Hope we have some yummy angst coming up next season...)

See you Sunday!
