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.

Oh, it was a compliment ;)

Don't think I spent the whole 1+ years actually editing it. The way I work is: start a video, add some clips, bang my head against a wall, put the video aside and swear to never work on it again, start a new video and repeat the process. It's rare that I will begin a vid and finish it within the month...it takes a strong bit of inspiration, which is why only a handful of vids can makes that claim :p

*blushes* You and your flattery! (although I do appreciate it ;))

Well *cough* you're SUPPOSED to buy it (and it's pricey) but I got it a few years back through...other means ;)
