This was beautiful!!! I loved the slow build-up, all those gorgeous memories that Cara has, and then the ending was just superbly edited together. These two! *flails happily*

Thanks :) I tried for a bit to edit a kiss together for the ending, but they move too damn much in all the kissing scenes, lol.

Me too, so much undeveloped potential *sigh* (and so many scenes to use in videos that we'll never get!)

Oh this is awesome but so sad & angsty! I love the way you have cut to make the sex scene.

Your vids always rock! : D

*applause!!!* I had to close my eys for part of it though - the one part where Cara screams in that episode broke my heart into a thousand little pieces. And yeah, the ending is VERY well edited!!!

Wow this was really good.

Technically, the timing was spot on the entire time.
Many videos try to have a story and then just add some accompanying music that generally fits the mood of the narrative.
but I thought your vid was in sync with every freaking word as well as the music's crescendos. and again with the timing. and the crafty editing.
yes, very well done.

Thanks - it's nice when someone notices the effort that goes into it :) As you say some videos just seem to be some scenes slapped on top of someone's favourite song, but I like to make mine actually go with what they're singing and how the music flows too :)

So, I think you may have potentially broken my brain with the last part of that. Love how you cut up the fight-scenes, that was... well... epic.

Thanks :) It was certainly a much better ending than the original stupid powerful-magic-reset-button one (and I'm not just saying that because of the rabid C/K gayness of it, lol - any ending would have been better than the "let's wipe out Dahlia" one)
