It's been about three years that I last made a vid for a challenge, never had the time, the motivation, the right idea...well, you know how things are sometimes... but then I stumbled over ETV's July 'One-Line Vidlet' challenge and actually had an idea right away...YEAH! :D
So, here it is... hope you like it. :o)

But hey, about 2 1/2 weeks ago, she popped in again, more fiercely than ever...she wouldn't leave me be, she wouldn't even let me sleep! I could do nothing but to comply (sleep is overrated anyway, isn't it? ^^). So, and this is it...my latest Merlin vid...hope you like it. :o)
( No more pretending, no more lies...this night is going to change everything, but will Arthur understand? )
A few days ago I watched valika56 ' s "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Trailer in SGA style" for the umpteenth time (it's just fab!), when I got hit on the idea to do the same with Merlin, and valika56 kindly allowed me to
So, and this is the outcome...have fun! :D
( I will not be held responsible for any loss of brain cells... )
Believe me, this one hasn't been easy, neither technically nor emotionally, but I just had to make it. I'm not sure if it turned out the way I wanted to, but see for yourself, and I'd really appreciate it if you could let me know, what you think...
Title: The Darkness Within

Summary: When Merlin looked into the Crystal of Neahtid the destruction of Camelot wasn't everything he saw...there's been something else...darkness...trying to consume him. He knows he needs to hold on to the memories of his friends and family, of everything they've been through together to not lose himself. But will it be enough when the darkness inside him is growing stronger and stronger? Will they still love him when he's gone?
( Love me when I'm gone... )
When I heard that song a few days ago on the radio, I already had to laugh how fitting it was for Merlin, so, I pulled myself together and made quite an effort to bring this vid on the way... ;o)
Hope you like it... :o)

Actually, I wanted to make this vid since I watched that ep for the first time (I absolutely loved the story about Merlin and Freya - very sad and touching, yet so beautiful), but it took me over a week to find the right music (and then almost another week to finish it *g*). And I really hope this tune indeed suits their story. :o)

I'll also try to include streaming versions for as many vids as possible, at least for the newer ones. ^^
Oh, and by the way, if you feel the urge to comment any of my vids ^^, I'll keep collecting them in the main post.
Basically, it's just a good mood vid about the 10th Doctor, you might say it's kind of a tribute, too. I tried to picture as many as possible of his heroic, goofy and just fluffy moments. And I don't know if I even should say this, but I kinda avoided all the kisses ... don't ask me why ... not a clue ... I just did. *lol*
Anyway, I hope you like it ...
( This way... )
Basically, I made it for the special theme round at DPTM this month. When I read the theme for the challenge, there was already an idea in my head, which I simply couldn't get rid off! *lol*
( So, and here it is ... )
But I just have to mention that I had the pleasure and the honor to make a vid for her story. So, and here it is:
Length: 1:48 min
Size: 35,3 MB (wmv, zipped)
And I'm really, really sorry for everyone who doesn't understand german, because sinaida's fic is just brilliant, but anyway, for watching the vid and looking at the wonderful cover which was made by lorien_79 you don't need to. ^^
And here you can find the fic and the cover. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! :o)
..., dass ich schon wieder mal viel zu lange mein LJ nicht geupdated habe!!! ;o)
Und ich werde auch heute nicht viel schreiben, da ich mitten im Umzug stecke und ausserdem einer gewissen Dame versprochen habe, noch ein wenig an meiner Geschichte weiterzuschreiben!! *gg*
Also gibt es ganz kurz und ohne Umschweife ein kleines, aber hoffentlich feines Video von mir.
Dies ist mehr oder weniger der erste Versuch, einen Episoden-Trailer zu machen.
Und welche Folge wuerde sich da besser anbieten als "First Strike"!
Wer sich allerdings nicht spoilern lassen will, sollte sich dieses Vid wohl besser nicht runterladen...
alle anderen duerfen dann gerne mal in mein Vid Archive gucken!
Bin gespannt, was Ihr sagt...
Trailer zu First Strike
