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.

Okay...wow...how did I miss that you'd made a new vid? Holy crap, I must really be out of it. Anyway, absolutely loved it! I had actually never even considered this pairing...now for the life of me, I don't know why. *sigh* Darn you and your conversions...

even though I know that they were only in a handful of eps together, I wouldn't know that after this vid. Everything is so flawless and perfect there. Not to mention...that's a perfect song. Holy crap, you are awesome!

Have you been slacking off on your f-list again? ;)

Yeah, I think I only considered this pairings thanks to Kisara on YT who has done some great Vala/Shep vids...as well as the behind-the-scenes story about BB/MS being jealous that CB was having Vala flirt with Shep :p Plus, they're pretty together (yeah, I'm shallow).

I wish they were in a handful of episodes together! It would have made my life so much easier :p It's pretty hard to take a couple that shares only one dialogue-less group scene and form a relationship for them, I assure you :p

Thanks for the comments *blushes*
