Vid Title: Hoping Machine
Fandom:Harry Potter
Summary:"To have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever." JKR (Sorcerer's Stone)
Reccer's Comments:Some of my best loved vids took me several listens before I really latched on. The song was written by Woody Guthrie and is sung by Jay Farrar. I think giving it a few listens before watching the vid can help if you're not familiar with it. But, again like my most favorite vids, the song just seems to be written for the images Eunice chose. The phrase "let your plans come out of mistakes, These are the plans and nothing can tear down, Made out of things that have already been torn down" is everything that is tragic and uplifting about Harry Potter, both the character and the story.

Vid Title: Can't Go Back Now
Vidder: such heights
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Summary: But in the end, the only steps that matter are the ones you take all by yourself
Reccer's Comments: This is Willow, her journey, her missteps, her outright dishonorable choices, the wrongs done to her, and her amazing personal strength, resilience, and love. It's how we all move from childhood to adulthood with the added kick of the magnitude of the supernatural power she has. For good or bad, she can't go back.

Vid Title: Shake It Out
Vidder: ntertanedangel
Fandom: Harry Potter
Summary: A tribute/character study of Harry James Potter: The Boy Who Lived
Reccer's Comments: I love Harry and the vidder clearly does, too. After watching it, I wouldn't have believed the song wasn't written for Harry's story which is usually true of my favorite vids. It communicates the inescapable devil inside of him, the tragedy of his struggle and his mistakes, but with a soaring sound and images that make it clear he won't give up.
