Vid recs: BSG, Kara vids and Kara/Lee vids

I've been planning to make a BSG vid recs post for weeks. I have a ridiculous number of vids to rec, so consequently, I've decided to split them into several posts. This first set are all Kara/Lee vids, though some of them are more 'shippy' than others.

Kara/Lee vids
jessicaj703 has five vids which are all great. I particularly like the Kara-centric 'Breathe me' for its tenderness and for the insight into Kara's world--it touches on all her relationships, not just her relationship with Lee. 'Chocolate' is also a very strong vid, and one I think most Kara/Lee fans would enjoy. The other one I personally really enjoyed was the Lee-centric 'Finish Line'. The quality of the vid is gorgeous and it successfully puts us in Lee's perspective for his near-death experience. (Not as bleak as it sounds--just thoughtful, introspective and gently moving.) Jessica excels at using 'little' character moments (as well as the powerful iconic moments) in her vids, and her vids consequently feel very fresh and original. I must thank daybreak777 for reccing her to me: I'm so glad she did.

Hazyshade's Set the fire to the third bar blew me away. It's now officially my Kara/Lee/Destiny OT3 vid of choice! ;-) It's absolutely gorgeous: beautifully edited, and completely mesmerising. It integrates intensely intimate moments between Kara and Lee with the big epic moments connected with the fleet's search for Earth in a way that feels intensely natural. And it's both moving and hope-inspiring. It will soothe my jitters in the long hiatus!

Before I discovered this vid, I was already intending to rec Hazyshade's Addicted, a Kara/Lee vid which explores the nature of the attraction between them. For those of you who don't have as heavy a destiny kink as I do, this vid concentrates on the masochistic, addictive quality of their love, making great use of the boxing footage.

Kara vids
bananainpyjamas A place inside is a very dark vid. It's not light escapist viewing, but it is very powerful, and takes an honest look at the darkness of Kara's journey from mid season 2 until the end of season 3. It features Lee, Sam and Leoben, drawing parallels between those relationships. Very original, very strong.

charmax's Mainstream makes you feel as if the song was made for Kara. It's a fast-paced, edgy, tension-filled, exhilerating ride, that takes you through some of the biggest moments in Kara's journey so far. Spectacular shots, brilliant editing. It's a must see!

J-dos's She's a rebel is a fast-paced, fun, Kara anthem vid. If all the shippy angst or destiny stuff is too much for you, I highly recommend this piece of escapism! Kara as rebel = love.

Lee vids



Do you see this space? Yes, I see it too. And I am NOT HAPPY about it! Seriously, people, do I need to remind you how interesting a character Lee is?! AGAIN?! I'm sure nobody wants that... *threatens with Leemo* Will someone pleeeease rec me some Lee character vids? Please? *puppy eyes* Gah! (Psst! grapefruitzzz! Hurry up and learn to vid already, yo!)

I have Roslin vids, full cast vids, Cylon vids, etc to rec at some stage too. But my Friday Night Lights download is nearly finished and is calling to me...
