Vid: Cut

Yes, for the first time in YEARS, I have successfully committed vid. \o/

Song: Cut
Artist: Plumb
Fandom: Being Human
Summary: The undeath of Lauren Drake. (Spoilers through 1x05)

(Using BAM for the moment because YouTube's automatic copyright recognition thingie muted my audio. Will be putting a QuickTime version on my webspace soon so's I can stream a less teeny version.)

Very nice! Liked it a lot - Lauren was one of my favourite characters in S1, and her story arc was a close contender with Annie's for my overall favourite.

Particularly I liked how your vid really seemed to capture the opposite extremes of Lauren's 'new' personality - her exacerbated, hedonistic, blood-driven and amoral side was portrayed just as well as the tired, strung-out 'blood addicted' kid who just wanted to 'be human', as it were. I think overall this creates a balanced feel (which of course is difficult with such extremes!) that S1 also creates over time - you can never hate Lauren, but it's difficult to love her sometimes, too.

If only I could favourite it on YouTube! I'm getting sick of the damn 'copyright infringement' messages on fanvids where there's clearly no infringement intended. *sigh*

Thank you!! *beam* I loved Lauren's arc so much. As I was telling someone the other day, I can't remember exactly when I decided for sure that she was genuinely trying, and not just playing him. But then I looked back at the earlier stuff in that light, and it just broke my heart, and I hung on every moment she was on screen from there on in.

Herrick never had any genuine interest in her well-being as one of his people blahblahfishcakes, only in using her as a pawn to regain control of Mitchell. Lauren herself figured that out relatively early on, but the damage was already done -- Mitchell couldn't trust her, Herrick terrified her, and she had no remotely secure way to navigate between them. ~wibble~

I'm in the process of solving the YouTube problem. I'll keep you posted.

This vid is so beautiful, from start to finish. Poor Lauren. The song is just perfect for her and I love the way you go back and forth between scenes that flow and the ones intercut with black. Brava.

Thankyouthankyou!!! *bounce* I'm so, so pleased with how it ended up. And so glad it looks to other people the way it looked in my head!
