for my friend

This is a rather personal vid for me. redteekal was lucky enough to attend Nerd HQ recently and she and her partner took some absolutely gorgeous pictures of Jared. In a recent post redteekal related a story by Jared told about Gen and Thomas and mentioned a song Jared relates to his experience of fatherhood. I thought it might be nice to put the pics together with that song.

I then watched all the Nerd HQ and couldn't helped adding a couple of extra bits. ;)

It's really just a way to try and capture some moments from the event and put the pictures in a video. It also meant I could stare at those gorgeous pics as often as I want *g*.

(And I've earmarked this song for a SamnDean vid. Just saying).

I think this may be my favourite of all your vids. Brilliant use of clips and timing them with the song lyrics.

How does Jared just get more and more beautiful with every passing year???? I mean I've always found him to be extremely attractive and a lot of that is because of what's on the inside and his personality. But fatherhood seems to have brought out something extra that is really hard to define. He positively glows when ever he mentions Gen or Thomas and that only multiplies his attractiveness to me.

Wow! Thanks!

And yeah.... there's just something about him recently. It's interesting to compare this Nerd HQ to last years. He's much calmer and seems more relaxed. Or maybe he's just had less to drink or something...;))

thanks so much for your lovely comment. <333

Wow. First I was going, 'oh, the FEELS!' with the Thomas talk. And then came the GORGEOUSness. And I was like.....GUH.

I have a meet & greet with Jensen at Vancon and all I could think about as I watched this is, "man, I wish I had sprung for a Jared M&G too!" (maybe next time.)

Hee.... he brings the feels and all the *GUH* that boy!

And yay M&G with Jensen! That should be awesome. (wanna hear all about it...;D)

Most excellent!!!

Thank you! <3

OMG. I was all awww, cry cry *happy tears*, then when "Groove is in the Heart" came on I laughed my face off, and when Vidal Sassoon started playing I did victory arms. LOL! This vid reminds me of Show in that there's a bit of funny, cheeky, and love all wrapped up in one, and the funny jumps in at just the right time, preventing too much melodrama. Brilliant!

Thank you so much. That's so wonderful to hear. <3

Initially I had planned to just use the one song and the pics and then when I watched the whole HQ thing I wanted to capture a little more of its essence. Jared seems to embody sincerity and levity in equal portions...:)

Thank you again. <3

HA!! Yes! babies! How dare he be so damn cute with a baby! (and who would have thought I'd be so "awwwwww" about that!)

And that song....

hee... but NO breaking up!

Awww hun THANKYOU so much, you have no idea how much this means to me, it's the very best present fandom has given me EVER! I love every single second of this vid and the commenter above is so right in that it's reflective of SHOW but it is also totally the embodiment of Jared too...he's such a deep feeling, sensitive soul who is also has that streak of utter goofiness and uninhibited ability to have a laugh at himself that makes an entire room full of people just break out into grins and giggles and laughing out loud moments. You have combined those two aspects seamlessly somehow and I just adore it. (((((HUGS))))

Off to pimp and rec everywhere!!

PS Meant to say also how much it also makes me feel a little pleased with myself (and Mr tim too!) for managing to take these photos - they are kinda gorgeous aren't they? *vbg* ;-)

I am so thrilled you like it. I really enjoyed making it because it felt personal and I like adding that quality to vidding. :) It was also fun actually watching all of Nerd HA (though I have to admit I skipped past the bit when the girl brought out the artwork... I just...nope. Couldn't watch that bit. /o\). Jared seemed a lot calmer than the last HQ, but still genuine and full of life.

And you and Mr Tim did an EXCELLENT job capturing Jared! \o/

Thanks for the wonderful feedback sweetie and for letting me use the pics! :DD

JARED!!! *_*

How can he possibly be this beautiful?? (Excuse me while I go watch this 80 more times.)

You are THE BEST (right after JP, that is). <3333
16th-Aug-2012 11:31 am (UTC)
How?! How is it even possible?! *head shake*

Hee! And if I'm second to Jared... I TAKE THAT! *HUGS*

I've been so behind on LJ that I hadn't seen the panel or any of this. This vid is just absolutely beautiful. Can this man get anymore adorable? I tell you, I've been married a very long time and have teenage and twenty-something kids, and the last several years I've been in NO hurry for grandchildren, definitely glad I don't have babies of my own. But this gorgeous kid (Jared's a kid to me)...he just blows me away. Makes me look forward to my kids bringing home partners and having babies with them, just to see this kind of love and awe again.

Thank you!

And I am so with you here! I've been going through this strange period of thinking - that, when the time comes, I can see the joy of be a grandparent (god! I never thought I'd hear myself say that!). It's kinda lovely seeing Jared discovering that joy and knowing what he's going through. I do get the sense, when I listen to him, that it hasn't all been smooth sailing - because having a child isn't smooth. It's hard work.

I'm so glad you liked the vid hun. <3

You're truly AMAZING! this is soo gorgeous! I really really love it and Jared Padalecki! ♥
16th-Aug-2012 01:20 pm (UTC)
Oh hey! Thank you SO much! So glad you like it (and of course Jared is just infectious! *g*)

That first bit took me by surprise with how emotional I got. It's Jared so that's bound to be awesome but having it pulled together with the pictures of their grand day out and the song and it felt so much bigger. It's awwwww and being happy for them but also so much about how it feels to be a parent, especially with a real little one. It's watching my husband and our kid and maybe even a bit about my own Dad. Time goes so friggin' fast.

And then, because it's Jared after all, the mood jumps entirely to something totally light-hearted and goofy. It's like the Swan Song fight scene and the gag reel. It's all good. And then, because it's Jared, there is hair.

Lovely job.

Hee! What an awesome response! He is ALL those things...!


Thank you so much honey. <333
