Angel (John)

Video: Mystic (John/Aeryn Shippy)

I heard this song for the first time a few months ago while the show Judging Amy was playing in the background, and immediately fell in love with it and wrote down a line of the lyrics and went hunting for it. I was actually surprised to find out who sung it, and that it was an older song.

I completed a fair bit of it in a couple days, but there were a few sequences for the chorus that hung me up. Not that I didn't know what to do with it, but because I wanted it to fit what was in my head. Then there was the fact I wanted it 'misty' looking. :p There were several things I tried, but never could get it juuust right.

tinyelviss had been able to get the look I wanted in a few of his videos, but I was kind of embarrassed to ask how he did it. Finally I said screw it and asked. hehe When he told me, I went back into my plug-ins since Vegas has something similar, but that was one of the things I'd tried previously and it didn't work right. Though, I think that was because...hell, I don't know why it didn't work before. But now it did and that's all that mattered. hehe

It's not often that I find a romantic song that I truly love, and this one just clicked with John and Aeryn, and so here is one of my rare shippy videos. Thank yous should go to thehallway who let me know I'd hit the right tone, and for sabaceanbabe for the beta help for a section of this.

Music is Into the Mystic by Van Morrison. There are spoilers for the entire series/PKwars.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.


ETA: Just fixed the link if you'd tried and got another vid. Ooops!
