So I originally had another vid planned for Premieres but after making my Club Vivid vid, I needed a break from vidding and after that I realized I wasn't going to have the time to actually make that more time intensive vid. In mid-May, I started catching up on House of Cards S2 and fell hard for this threesome which features one of the most beautiful, intense and nonverbal romantic scenes I've ever seen. As luck would have it, I heard this song in one of Spotify's playlists I was listening to as I fell asleep and I realized it was perfect for them while also having the lyrics to cover some of the political stuff I wanted to include. It was nice to have a less time intensive clipping process and the House of Cards pretty imagery helped make the vidding process mostly painless as I wanted to use the symbols to provide some context and meaning to their relationship together. It turned to be one of those vids that looks very similar to what I saw in my head before I made it which is always wonderful when it occurs.

Having only the vaguest, fandom-adjacent sense of the series, I feel like this could be subtitled "The Macbeths Take a Lover". This vid is so gorgeously gripping! Beautiful match on the music and visuals.

I just showed this to [Unknown site tag] and to my sweetie, and they were both totally blown-away, as was I. 1) We are totally going to watch this show now, and 2) I think this may be my favorite of your vids ever.

I'm coming up as "unknown site tag" -- but yes, this vid was gorgeous and hit me right in the yowza. Nice, nice work!

I'm not sure I will be able to take the show itself, as it will likely be too dark and not escapist enough for me, but now I am certainly curious enough to try it.

That was BEAUTIFUL, oh my goodness! What a marvelous, sexy choice of song that was. I love the swift edits in this vid, and how it catches so many little touches and glances, as well as the way you center their relationship in the increasingly bloody struggle for power. Really marvelous!

I liked this very much. I was somewhat surprised that Meechum didn't figure into the latest season at all but then it was largely about Doug's devotion so the theme was still there.

Really lovely, and I appreciated how you intertwined their sexuality and power.
