VID: Open Your Eyes (John/Vala)  
....and now comes an end to one of the longest gestating vids in my vault. I had originally planned on finishing a John/Aeryn (Farscape) video as promised, but this one was weighing on my mind (and I seem to have hit a J/A mental roadblock).

The story to this vid is based mostly from the S3 SGA episode "Common Ground" in which Sheppard is confined to a cell next to a hungry wraith (later named Todd). I thought "why not put Vala in that other cell instead?" and thus this video was born. Ultimately, I kept the 'villain' somewhat ambiguous so that one could either see it as the Genii, the Wraith, or the Ori as they so chose. Hopefully, the unfolding story makes sense! I am no grand SGA expert, so I have to offer a great many thanks to those of you who helped me out with Sheppard clips (or offered help): nodoubtfan92, sezjara , kjcharmed , the good folks at the JF/Sheppard GW thread, and to anyone else I'm forgetting, please feel free to remind me and I'll edit this post with your name!! Also, a super special thanks to my beta milena_d who has been cheering this video on for the better part of a year and a half.

You know, I absolutely love all your vids, even the one of ships I don't know too well, or even ship.

This video? Was absolutely no exception!! :)

I just loved how you pieced it together so seamlessly, and how the story went. Speaking of, I SO hope someone fics this for you (if you allow that), because I SO WANT TO READ IT IF THEY DO! :D :D

Loved loved loved this video! Great job, hon!

Aw, thanks! It's truly a great compliment to have a non-shipper appreciate my shippy vids :p

Seriously, I would LOVE to read a fic like that. John/Vala has always been my guilty pleasure ship. They're not remotely close to being even semi-canon, but imagining the characters together just makes me smile. Now to find a fic-writer!
