This one took a while to complete, mostly because I forbade myself to work on it in the last few weeks of trying to finish the BigBang. Anyway. Look, have a vid.

LYRICS:

I am just a poor boy
Though my story's seldom told
I have squandered my resistance
For a pocket full of mumbles such are promises
All lies and jests
Still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest

When I left my home and my family
I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of the railway station running scared
Laying low
Seeking out the poorer quarters where the ragged people go
Looking for the places only they would know

Asking only workman's wages
I come looking for a job
But I get no offers
Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue
I do declare
There were times when I was so lonesome I took some comfort there

Then I'm laying out my winter clothes
And wishing I was gone
Going home
Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me
Bleeding me
Going home

In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of every glove that laid him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
"I am leaving, I am leaving"
But the fighter still remains

Ohmygoodness, it's done! And it's awesome. I love the -- well, it feels epic and individual at the same time. And you've got this wonderful sense of escalation throughout, and just. Oh, I am handflapping. This vid! ♠

Epic and individual was exactly what I was aiming for, so I'm so very glad it came across all right. :D

Oh, wow! I really enjoyed this - it definitely conveys the feel of the series, the danger and sacrifices, and most importantly the comradeship. I loved the ending!

From: [identity profile] kaydeefalls.livejournal.com
Thank you so much! The comradeship is so crucial to BoB, and how they're all sort of reflections of aspects of each other's personalities, and...yeah.

From: [personal profile] phoenixchilde
YAY. I have been looking forward to this ever since I got that little preview, and it turned out so well. Especially the ending -- like Esther said, that sense of escalation ended up working fantabulously. *draws tiny hearts over you, the vid, and Easy Company all*

From: [identity profile] kaydeefalls.livejournal.com
YAY I'm glad it held up! Especially since you were all like, um, maybe you could cut out some of the refrains? and I was all, no I can make it work really! so I'm glad it did work for you in the end. :D

Hi, I was linked her from delicious and I'm so glad I was!!!!

That was honestly one of the best fanvids I've ever seen. You use the music so well and it just all fits so seamlessly. It just perfectly captures the feeling of BoB for me.

Excellent vid (here through the 'vidding' comm) I love the song choice and the montage at the end was both epic and inspiring.

FUUUUUUUUCK I gasped at the D-Day drop bits and then Malarkey and just wow. Ouch. Boys. Winters.

God, that was very well done and PAINFUL. All the things taken from them which they will never, ever get back. It's somehow more bitter for the happy at the end. Because it's all always there. *handwaves*
