I've been working on this vid see? for a while now....
And I've been so nervous to post it in it's completion because of the message I DON'T WANT PEOPLE TO GET FROM IT!
THIS IS NOT AN ANGEL HATE VID, THIS ISN'T EVEN A BANGEL HATE VID. THIS IS PURELY MY TAKE ON LETTING YOUR ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN YOUR WORDS!
I LOVE ANGEL I SERIOUSLY DO!
However!! I'm doing a rewatch of all 7 seasons of Buffy and 5 seasons of Angel with my boyfriend who has never seen either show. We just completed season 3, and the whole Buffy/Angel thing really bothers me. I don't want to start a shipper war. That is not my intention with this vid, but while watching season 3 B/A moments all these meta-y thoughts kept entering my brain and since I'm no good at writing logical sense making type things, I figured I'd express my feelings through fanvid, and I'm pretty sure I did it alright.
To be specific there were three moments that I just couldn't grasp B/A, the first being in 'Lovers Walk' when Buffy has this huge epiphany and leaves Angel because 'what she wants from him she can never have' the next being in 'Amends' when the most logical thing Angel can do after being rejected by Buffy and reminded of his past, is to threaten to kill himself. And the final pivitol moment is when Angel finally breaks up with her claiming he can never give her what she wants (ugh, we already knew that from Buffy) and Buffy claiming that stuff no longer matters to her....HELLO?! As a final word from me, when Buffy and Angel are around each other pre-during-post relationship they act like immature poop heads, And that's all I gotta say about that...
Thanks to the LOVELY angearia for beta-ing this and giving me the enthusiasm and encouragment I needed in order to finish this video.
<EDIT> click here to download the video (it's much better quality)
Also, I would like to know if anyone would be willing to fill in a little vid beta-ing while my lovely full time beta, Jamie is extremely busy?
This would entail:
*watching my vids/parts of vids and giving me constructive critisism as well as ideas you have to make it better
*being bugged by me constantly
*and occasionally wanting to hit me over the head with heavy objects
If interested let me know :)
