VVC vid content notes

[Post-con edit: This is the post linked from the master list, since it was the only one available, but I know not everyone is going to want to read the content notes. New post with the vid embedded is here.]




I have one vid showing in Nearly New. Since it's not premiering, you are welcome to have someone preview it for you on YouTube.

Suggestions and/or requests for clarification are welcome in comments (anonymous is an option), by private message, or by emailing valerie at wiliqueen dot com. Thank you to were_duck for maintaining a list of links to voluntary vid warnings, and to the many people contributing to the conversation figuring out just how to go about this.

Title: Cut
Fandom: Being Human
Spoilers: Through 1x05
Visual/Cognitive: Sections of one-second clips alternating with one-second black frames. One rotating overhead crane shot, in closing moment of vid.
Potentially triggering for: Sexualized violence, onscreen death, blood, physical and emotional abuse, self-injury, suicide. Please scroll down for details.

  • A woman is bitten and killed by a vampire during otherwise consensual sex. (The fact that consent is not informed -- i.e. she believes her partner to be human -- is implied.) Seen both during and after, with her body on the bed (eyes open).
  • Shot of another woman bleeding with a slashed throat. (Non-sexualized but graphic.)
  • Close shot of character opening his wrist with a pin.
  • A woman is assaulted (pulled by the wrist, grabbed by the arm and shaken) and threatened by male authority figure. Witnessed by another woman who is visibly disturbed.
  • Mutual feeding between vampires during consensual sex, with graphic bites/cuts and substantial blood.
  • Two vampire stakings with moderate blood. One is overtly an assisted suicide.
  • Lyrics of song deal overtly with self-injury from first-person POV.

Hi there. This was one of my favorite vids from Nearly New--you did such a fantastic job; I especially liked the clips of the three different repetitions of the lyric about "I do not want to be afraid" and how they showed three very different aspects/stages of her arc.

Thank you so much!! Lauren absolutely broke my heart, pretty much from the point where I realized "Oh, crap, she's not just playing him, she's actually trying, and she's just a baby and there's no way she can be strong enough without WAY more effective support than Mitchell knows how to give," and there are so many amazing little details in Annabel's performance and... ~meep~

Anyway, I'm just all kinds of happy that it's coming across in the vid. Thank you so, so much for letting me know!

I think this is one of the best minor character vids I've seen. I don't really find Lauren a particularly sympathetic character; she was vile in season one, and though she had reason to be, I really wanted to see her dispatched. *g* What your vid accomplished for me was to make her sympathetic, to show me her entire arc, and to make me feel sad for her. I really loved the care and attention to fleshing her out. Thank you for this.

(Also, I tried to hail you at the con today to tell you this in person, but I don't do a very good job of giving people the high sign, I guess. But the thought was there!)

Thank you so, so much! It's one of those situations where I went "You mean everyone didn't see her that way??" And then of course had to set out to see if I could fix that. *g* So it's amazingly gratifying that it works for people in that way.

I'm sorry I missed you! I rather suspect the breakdown was more in reception than in transmission. I never quite felt like my brain fully engaged today, and my available capacity for noticing what was going on around me seems to have been used up by mic running. %-}

Thank you!!
