Vividcon premiere: Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me  

Title: Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
Fandom: Smallville, Oliver Queen (Green Arrow)
Artist: U2
Spoilers: to mid season 9
Access vid: via direct download (90MB) or streaming at YouTube, vidders.net (once cleared) or Blip
Credits: With heartfelt thanks to supacat, who has wanted an Oliver vid to this song for years: I finally made it for her. She also betaed it more times than I can remember, so it's kind of her baby as much as mine. I'd also like to thank the Vividcon audience for being so receptive to the vid and to clarify that Oliver is BOTH the guy with the dark, angsty redemption plot and the guy who can't find his pants. And therein lies his appeal! *nod nod* talitha78 gets a special mention for being the only person to mention Batman to me so far.
You don't know how you took it
You just know what you got
Oh Lordy you've been stealing from the thieves
And you got caught in the headlights of a stretch car
You're a star

Dressing like your sister
Living like a tart
They don't know what you're doing
Babe, it must be art!
You're a headache in a suitcase
You're a star

Oh no, don't be shy
You don't have to go blind
Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me

You don't know how you got here
You just know you want out
Believing in yourself almost as much as you doubt
You're a big smash
You wear it like a rash...star

Oh no, don't be shy
It takes a crowd to cry
Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me

They want you to be Jesus
They'll go down on one knee
But they'll want their money back if you're alive at 33
And you're turning tricks with your crucifix
You're a star (Oh child)

Of course you're not shy
You don't have to deny love
Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me
(orgasms to fade)

HEE! I've heard a lot of buzz about this vid and I'm so happy to see it up! :D YAYYY!! I had to watch it quick before I run off to bed, but I'm sure I'll re-visit it often. ;)

It's just awesome and fantastic and sexy hot and Guh. Perfect song and your editing is just so sharp and fun. And YAY for Ollie love. Hee!! The boy just seems to lose his shirt so often, and you played with that fact beautifully. ;)

(and heh, he is SOOOO Smallville's Dark Knight, or Batman-lite as I like to call him. And as a diehard Bruce/Lois shipper that takes a lot for me to say. ;)) But he is a fun and very welcome addition to the cast in my book, and his chemistry with Erica is off the charts!

But back to your vid, AWESOME job. Thanks so much for sharing it! ;) And welcome home! :D

Thank you SO MUCH for the generous feedback! He's definitely Batman-lite and I appreciate you saying so because I know how much Bruce means to you. I'm sure if they had actually been able to have Batman on the show it would have been a whole other amazing layer of awesome, but I do appreciate that they can play around with some similar themes with Ollie. Plus Justin just puts so much into his work and I really appreciate it. Watching him and Erica together is always spectacular because they're both so classy and high calibre actors and steamy as hell, oh yes!

OMG I LOVE THIS VID *flaaaaaaaaaillllllllllll*

Thanks, sweetie! I'm still surprised people got into it--Smallville felt like such a hard sell before the con (though it seemed to make a big splash AT the con!).

That was FANTASTIC! I love that song and I love Ollie! I'm still like a season and a half behind in Smallville, but I enjoyed the hell out of this. Great job!!!

Thank you so much! I'm so glad you like it. And YAY another Oliver fan. You have GREAT taste! (I've seen a high correlation between BSG fans and Oliver fans ... I've no idea why but I'm not going to question it!!) And dude, there is SO MUCH good Oliver material in Season 9. There's some stuff that annoyed the hell out of me (there always is in SV) but if you sift it for the bits you like, it's a world of awesome. Plus they actually increase the amount of time he spends with his shirt off. DID YOU KNOW THAT WAS POSSIBLE?

Mmmm. Ollie! He's certainly become my favorite character on the show! This vid was fantastic, showing him in all his delectable, tortured glory. Love it!

YAY! Glad you liked it! I am sorry I couldn't go there with the Chloe/Oliver (just not my thing) but I'm glad you at least connected with the Oliver I showed in this vid. Who can pass up a hot, emotionally tortured, antihero billionaire?! I MEAN REALLY.
mahaliemmahaliem on August 23rd, 2010 04:51 am (UTC)
This was marvelous! I'm going to need to rewatch this several more times because so far my mind just goes mmmm...Oliver.

In prep for Vividcon I mostly thought 'what do I most want to watch myself on a big screen?' and clearly the answer was THIS.

Yeah, I have to say I've been really frustrated with Oliver's plot when watching Smallville week by week, but when I rewatched it in isolation (skipping the A and B plots of each episode most of the time!) there actually was a LOT more subtelty and continuity in there than I'd remembered, and I really feel like they had some great content there that was well worth teasing out and showcasing. Sometimes Smallville just flails around and doesn't know what it's doing with its cast: who it is focusing on when.

his pretentious little plans and attempts to make his intentions mysterious and everything
HAHAHAHA that's such a good way of putting it. *hearts his pretentious little plans so much* I can see why people find him annoyingly arrogant but I think there's such humility underneath that I always just find it endearing (largely thanks to Justin's capacity to play for comedy as well as emotional poignancy).
Cris: SV - Green Arrowduskwillow on August 23rd, 2010 09:07 am (UTC)
Eeee! This was brilliant!! \o/
So fun, and fast and entertaining. ♥

I'm not really a fan of what they've been doing with Ollie for the last...season and a half, so thanks for reminding me why and how much I love him. :D
And damn, this really makes me hope we'll get more Ollie/Tess scenes, they're hot together!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Batmanbop_radar on August 24th, 2010 04:55 am (UTC)
Oh god, yes, Oliver and Tess are STEAMY. I always wanted more of them. It's weird, normally I would absolutely hate Oliver's multipartnering (is he canonically in love with four women? I THINK SO, YES), but from him/Justin it just comes across so incredibly sincerely that I really ship him with everyone (or just about). And yes, I know, there have been a lot of problems with Oliver's plot (I was livid when they had him explode Lex with the monkey bomb, even if I *do* reclaim it here) but as with all things Smallville, if you sift through the shit for the vein of gold it pays off!

Glad you enjoyed, hon!

I loved that! Great job! :D

Doesn't matter what universe it is, Ollie will always loose his pants. :)

It's a fantastic vid, I especially love the rising tension to that final shot! I haven't even watched the show up to where he's introduced! :D
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Oliverbop_radar on August 24th, 2010 05:04 am (UTC)
LOL LOL LOL. Best comment/icon response!

I'm glad you enjoyed it despite not seeing his arc yet. It kind of gets buried beneath a lot of Smallville craziness (as you can imagine) but I was determined to make him the centre character in a story somewhere!

I love this!! Brilliant editing, and it's an awesome concept. :)

Also, who knew Oliver spent that much time with his shirt on?!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Bop_radar TWbop_radar on August 24th, 2010 05:36 am (UTC)
EXACTLY! I had to work hard to find those shirted shots. *nods*

Thank you so much! Feedback from you always makes me squeeeeeeeee.

Yay, you posted!!!

Also, so glad you made it home safe and sound. You have had some adventures, have you not? *hugs hugs*

I really did. Phew. *wipes brow* Home is all welcoming and restful though I'm fighting KILLER jetlag still. *hugs heaps* I got packages from you! And owe you stuff!! Expect long rambly email shortly... I just have so much love for you and Jessica for putting me up after Vividcon--that was one of the highlights of my trip, even if we did spend much of the time dozing on the sofa and staring blankly into space and (me at least) thinking 'did that really happen?!'

This was super hot and thrilling and just all around entertaining...and I've never been much of a Ollie fan so that reaction is 100% credit to your awesome vidding talent. Great job!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Bop_radar TWbop_radar on August 24th, 2010 05:08 am (UTC)
Thank you so much!! I totally understood when I undertook it that many people are not Oliver fans and it would be a hard sell to many. I respect that, I do, even if he hits all the right notes for me (despite craptastic Smallville writing around him, as it is with all characters on that show).

Well, I'm downloading this, but I'm worried about the lack of pants...

Dude, I edited AROUND the nekkid most of the time, I SWEAR. In this vid he is mainly clothed. Far, FAR more clothed than in the actual show.
