Running Up That Hill - John/Elizabeth  

Click the image or go here to see it on Youtube.

General Notes/Comments:

If anyone would like a download link, please let me know. I was having issues uploading a link, but if it's wanted I'd be more than happy to whip my editing program into shape and get a .avi available.

This is my first video on my new youtube channel, under this username. My new channel is here. My old channel is here. I will no longer be using the old channel.

Video Notes/Comments:

This is my first time working with Atlantis, it was a lot of fun. This is also probably the most depressing video I've done. I'm pretty proud of it. I basically just wanted to capture the dynamic of John/Elizabeth. Not necessarily in a shippy way, although I do ship them, but just... their relationship in canon, up to the dreaded Adrift/Lifeline.

I snuck in some clips from This Mortal Coil, but left Ghost in the Machine alone because personally I found the episode incredibly out of character for Elizabeth. I could write a rant on that, but anyway, I just covered their relationship up to her being sacrificed to the Replicators.

My clips from season 4 are a different size than my seasons 1-3 clips. I could have edited this, and did when I snuck in the clone!Weir clips, but I actually found it pretty appropriate since the other season 4 clips were all of Adrift/Lifeline, which the video focuses around. It's almost a past/present thing, if that makes sense. Anyway, it made sense to me so I left it as it was.

Let me know what you think! :)

That was beautiful. And sad. And I cried. You know, I don't cry while watching sad movies or tv shows. There's only one show that makes me cry - sga. While watching Adrift and Lifeline, I always cry. No matter how many times I've watched it before. So yeah, I cried. I really don't see how they could do this to her. She would be the only reason to watch the show at the end. At least for me.
And I have to agree - Ghost in the Machine is out of her character. The acteress wasn't that good, but the main problem was the writing. It was terrible. I'm so glad Torri didn't come back just for that.

Oh my god. Oh Aly. Oh Aly.
This must be the single most amazing video I've ever seen. You know, up until now, I liked them, adored them, even, but it wasn't the love I felt for Roslin&Adama or Sam&Jack. This has just changed everything. I... don't even know what to say. This is bloody brilliant.

Oh! That's such a huge compliment. ♥♥♥!

And you know, John and Elizabeth were that way for me too. The first time I watched through the show a year or two ago I loved Elizabeth and I liked John/Elizabeth but then when I got back into it and started reading fanfiction and watching videos they absolutely became an OTP.

(Also, if you want recs, my favorite (and what I think is the single saddest,) John/Elizabeth video is this one. It's by the same girl who did that trailer I showed you, and she also has one adorably sweet one you may want to watch after if you watch that because... yeah. Depressing.

And there's this video that has some of the best editing I've ever seen. It's AU J/E as sadistic drug addicts. And is awesome.)

But.. yeah. Best compliment ever? And I LOVE YOUR COMMENTS. I feel like I'm not adequately replying to them, but I love love love them and appreciate them a lot. ♥!
