Boys_you're real


Vidder: Loki
Title: I Promise
Song: Lost Song
Artist: Olafur Arnalds
Warnings: none
Category: character study
Characters/Pairings: Sam
Summary: Here's to the boy, who saved the world he never felt a part of.
Length: 3:26
File Size: 77 MB
Links: YouTube | Download 77 MB
A/N: So, this is my shallow pure self-indulgent way of procrastinating. Recently I realized that it'd been a week since Sam's birthday and I kind of wanted to do something. Right at the same time I found this</a> beautiful in its simplicity art which just ARGH. wnchstr makes amazing art with quotes and I feel like a can make a video for each and single one of them ♥

Anyway. The summary says pretty much all about the video. I wanted to show that Sam has always struggled in the world, like, the world didn't accept him and neither did Sam himself. He wanted to save the world despite the fact that something dark was inside of him, and I think this is one of those things that fascinates me about this character. He tried to let everyone go, to push them away just because he didn't feel like they were safe with him, and at the same time he wanted so badly someone to watch over him. He believed in higher power, in God himself I guess, and he was so full oh belief and hope that, even when he realized that he was the one ho could destroy all the world, he still believed that he also was the one who could save it. This contradiction is what moves him ahead I think.

Oh, Sam. This breaks my heart, especially the last line 'maybe there is no escape. How can you run from what is inside you?" :( Nice image with the wall at the end!

Wow. That's GORGEOUS. All the imagery of Sam's bound wrists, tied to his fate, his mission, his misery. So well done!! <3

This is so, so powerful, such an intriguing portrait of Sam.

Sometimes I get annoyed by his "why me?"-attitude in the show, especially when he manages to combine it with "only me" about five minutes later. But your vid really spoke to me about Sam's struggles and his suffering and his fight against what is inside of him - and I truly felt for him. He always wanted to be good, even when he wasn't a part of what was considered "normal". Even at the times when Dean told him he was gone so far from normal, Sam wanted to be good. He was sometimes mistaken in the judgment of his own powers, always expecting more of himself (either good or bad, Sam is an overachiever), but his intentions were good.

And the breaking of wall at the end had me in shivers. I fear for Sam ...

You know what? ONLY AFTER YOUR COMMENT did I realize that this breaking the wall could be easily paralled with this Wall Of Sam coming down oO I actually never thought of it while making the video! So, thanks for such amazing comment ♥

Wow, that's completely stunning. First of all, I completely agree with what you said about Sam in the A/N. Although he has changed a lot in those years (and his voice, too o.O), there's still this essential part of him that won't ever change and which is all about redemption, guilt, saving the world and dealing with his darker side.

Every time I think I couldn't possibly love this character more, you upload a new vid and prove me wrong.
I really liked the calm feeling of the vid, I loved the lines you used as voice overs and the overall choice of scenes and close-ups. And the end? Oh boys...
14th-May-2011 01:32 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much for watching! I'm glad yu liked this one, because it seems I'll never get tired of making Sam videos haha

One day you'll kill me. And I will be glad. Once again you made me cry. This is said in a good way. You are an amazing artist. Wish you'll get someday a panel at a SPN-Con! I'm sure you'll be one of our SPN-Star! I'll certainly think about you next week @AECon2. Many of us (SPN-Addicted)are so addicted to your Vids. ;)
