SV vid rec  
*squees*

supacat, who I thought had abandoned SV for ever, has made a Clex vid like no other. Basically it's an extended study of the Rift, or, alternatively, the collision course that Clark and Lex have been on since the beginning. It also traces unflinchingly the connection between love and ... er... violence. ;-)

Warning: This is, er, not your typical Clex vid--neither Clark nor Lex is painted in that flattering a light. It's heavy on the enemy!slash and light on the woobieing.

But it's bloody brilliant!

I am restraining myself from writing an essay on its brilliance--I'd love to meta this vid--it's got stacks of stuff that sends my meta brain squeeing: like Lex's use of the upper-arm-grasp, blood symbolism, death/rebirth cycle, and the parallels between the eps Splinter and Shattered--ee! fascinating!

ETA: Good god, K! Don't write recs when you are hungover! Helps if you actually link to the vid. VID: Pretty when you cry GO!

Awwwww!!! *hugs* I'm sorry if this left you with an ouchiness right before bed. It's uh... yeah... kinda full on.
Clareblisstasteful on September 10th, 2006 12:42 am (UTC)
it is indeed, but it's beautiful, in the hurty way that only supes type things can manage.

Is it wrong that I adore tragedy so much?

Yes! They have a special kind of hurt! And I knooooow about the tragedy--I have a MASSIVE tragedy kink. I don't know what it says about me... but GUH! *wallows in the classicly tragic*

I'm so glad you think so!! I kept telling supacat how unique a vid it was, but I don't think she believed me. ;-)

Re: Blown away!
Oh YAY! I'm so glad you liked it. I can't tell you how excited I was when I betaed the draft! And I totally couldn't wait to rec it--it demanded to be shared!

OMG. This is just so moving. Amazing. AndI am SO with you on the tragedy thing. What is it with me and doomed heroes/villains? *weeps*
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Clex bitter endbop_radar on September 10th, 2006 02:24 am (UTC)
I know!! It's so ouchy!good! I'm delighted you enjoyed the vid--because it IS painful--but it traces such a grand tragedy! I reckon most of us in SV fandom have the doomed heroes/villains kink--why else are we here?!
Miche Connormiche_connor on September 10th, 2006 02:27 am (UTC)
Why else? Because we're masochists! LOL!

First Londo, my one true love.

Now, Lex, also my one true love.

Good thing they don't know about each other. *snerks*

Oh noes! Um, it's MP4, so it should play on Quicktime, iTunes or the ever-reliable VLC media player. Ugh! I'd love you to see it...
HeroHunter.  I, Storyteller.: clexbelieveherohunter on September 10th, 2006 10:37 pm (UTC)
