Vid rec: Smallville Lana vid  
So, SV peeps: have you all seen darlulu's Sugar? Because it is the most brilliant Lana vid I've ever seen. I've been reccing it to people individually since I saw it, but I've been all tongue-tied publically by its brilliance until now. It's one of those vids that worked for me instinctively on first viewing but which gets better and better on rewatch. I'm in awe of her shot choices--they're all so tonally perfect. It's possible that this vid says everything about Lana that I've been struggling to articulate since I first started meta-ing SV. And while it did make my conversion to Lana-affection all the more complete, I don't think you need to be a Lana fan to enjoy it; it's a very subtle piece. I want to make a vid like that when I grow up!

I checked it out despite my complete infancy in SV fandom and I was very impressed. You could almost see a young woman trying to grow up. It was a powerful vid. The editing and fast paced was extremely well done. Thanks for reccing it!!

Oh, cool! For the first few seasons I really didn't get into Lana's character at all, but the last couple have seen her mature so much and I now see that where I thought she was content to be the princessy beloved, she actually always felt restricted by that role. It's not an easy thing to condense 6 seasons of a show for any character... so yeah, I was really impressed.
