Notes: Premiered in the Challenge Amnesty show at VividCon 2013. ("Transformation" and "Fuck You" were the vid's guiding themes.) Thanks to [personal profile] trelkez for beta and for occasionally telling me, "Make it creepier. No, even creepier. Still not creepy enough. Seriously, where are you finding this shortage of creepy? It's Edward Cullen."

Part of me thinks of this vid as the Midnight Sun equivalent to my earlier Twilight vid, Fever. (Although, that means the Bella Swan portion of my vid saga is not yet complete...)

Thanks, and all feedback is welcome!

Someone at the con said this vid was one of the few to critique Twilight while still taking it seriously and I think that's exactly why I responded so well to it. You capture exactly what unsettles me about Bella and Edward and that ending sequence starting at 3:06 is perfection. Awesome work, this was one of my faves from Challenge! :D

Ooh, beautifully complicated - so many problems inherent in the relationship, but not all can be pinned on Edward, and it's clear they're devoted to each other, no matter what their friends/family or we the audience think about whether it's a good idea or not. Will be watching this more, for sure.

I wasn't sure at first if this was a serious look at their relationship or more about how creepy their relationship is and I was very glad it was the latter. This was really beautifully done and I loved all the great symbols throughout. The way you emphasize all the fucked up things is just so perfect especially the stalking shot at the beginning and at 0:31. I particularly love the beginning and ending, really gorgeous imagery and I love the word shots. This vid reeeally needed to be made and I'm so glad you did it justice.
