My first completed BSG vid! (hopefully, first of many.) Also my first vid in about 3 years. Whew.

Vid Title: Home to You
Artist: Avenged Sevenfold
Song: Gunslinger
Pairing: A/R
About: A New Caprica centric vid. Bill and Laura each went through a lot on their own, but finally know that they're going home to each other.

Also, I had a bitch of a time bringing this thing to life. Never mind DLing and clipping the relevant eps (WMM made this far more difficult than it should be) and just remembering how to USE WMM. When it was finally done, YouTube and DailyMotion BOTH muted audio on it as soon as it was uploaded. I don't know if it'll last on the current host, since the site is gamer-centric and this is decidedly not. We'll see. I'm kinda bummed about it all, because the only people who'll see it are those who watch in the next few days after this is posted. No one's gonna randomly find it on FF like they might on YouTube. I'm reasonably pleased with it too, especially for how long it's been, so this all puts a bit of a damper on it. Ah well... maybe I'll have better luck next time.

Duuude, I only have a min but I'm sorry for being such a bad lj friend. Lol this video is fabulous! Great song too, surprisingly fitting, especially because there's a lot of prayer talk in the lyrics. Very neat. Amazing job, A/R win!!! :)

Oh, that's a perfect song for them! \o/ They were always my most favorite couple on BSG and you really showed all of the trials and hardships they endured and it's SO true, it was coming back to each other that got them through. May this be the first of many, many more vids in your future! :D

About the incredibly annoying muting thing... >:[ BAMvidvault ( is a vid-friendly streaming place you can try. At least it's more geared towards vids and you might get a few more views than you would at a gaming site. Also, you can embed it on your LJ then make up a trailer of sorts for your vid with a link either to view it elsewhere, like zshare ( (that does both streaming and download links) or if you're comfortable with linking back to your LJ or over to some place like BAM, you can do that.

Here's what I did for my Doctor Who vid that immediately was blocked in many countries (, just to give you an idea of what you can do. I figured it would at least have the same keywords and such that my proper vid had so hopefully if somebody was searching for a Ten/Donna vid, this still might show up for them and at least point them towards a way to see it. I still didn't get many views on the original vid because so few people could even watch it, but it did well at my LJ where I had the BAM version embedded. So a trailer to sort of advertise your vid might be a solution you could try if you want. :D

Anyway, back on point, I really enjoyed that, it reminded me again why I thought they were so perfect together. Great work! :D ♥!

I'm not sure I even knew you were a BSG fan. =-O Doesn't surprise me, though. Nor the fact that you ship the best couple EVAR.

Thank you SO MUCH for yet again being my Vid Hero!! I'm uploading to BAM now, and then I think I'll just re-up the vid to YT, let them mute it again, and put the BAM link up there. You are awesome and full of wisdom. :-D (And you could totally use that as a Blog Testimonial, cause people would read that and be like 'damn, I need more wisdom AND more awesome in my life. I should read this LJ!')


Thanks for the ideas, and thank you for watching and commenting! <3
