My Vampire Heart - new video 6/21, new download link 8/21

For some reason I'd never even considered making a video for the story In Between .... until one day a few months ago when I stumbled across a stock photo, and realized I'd found my OC Elaine. I'd also been wanting to make a video to "My Vampire Heart" for many years, but could never figure out how to make it work. And suddenly, it seemed that these things were meant to go together.....

(If you haven't read In Between, I think this video would still be enjoyable to watch! And it should be a pretty good preview for the story. I'd only recommend avoiding the video if you want to read In Between someday and don't want any spoilers.)

Thanks Ella! I feel the same way .....and also the same way about making them! It's really hard to put the videos aside to do boring things like house cleaning.

Puzzling progress on the download link. I was actually able to make one, but when I downloaded from it, there were a lot of glitches in the first half of the video. The second half looked perfect though, so maybe I just have to keep trying.

Oh, Shadow, once again you've just blown me away with your creativity. :notworthy: The song is perfect for Mick. Melancholy, wry, self-blaming (oh, Mick... :Mickangel: ), and achingly romantic. And, of course, you chose the perfect scenes. You're so good at mixing clips from different episodes to tell your stories, so that it all feels homogeneous and natural. I absolutely love the images you chose for your OCs, too! And with their faces in my mind, I'm going to find time this summer to reread In Between! :reading: :cloud9:

I so love the way you describe the song, Alle! I'm mystified how it took me so long to think of using the song for an In Between video, especially since all the chapter titles are lyrics from the song. You'd think I would have put that together a long time ago.....
And I'm SO glad you liked the video, and the OCs!
It's marvelous to hear about your reading plans, too! :hearts:

Maggatha!! So great to see you here, little fledgling! So glad you liked this one. It was really fun picking out pictures for the OCs. And so much fun getting back into making videos! It's been a great way to escape the stress and trauma of the last year. (And I've got to make one every so often or I'll end up forgetting how to do it.) Hope you get the chance to come by MLA from time to time, little one!

I figured out how to make this download link a little while ago, but had quite a time testing it! My home internet is so incredibly slow these days that I couldn't get it to download there .... it claimed it would take a couple of hours, and there kept being power failures that interrupted the download. So I finally decided to try downloading it at work, after hours, and ..... :snicker: it took only a couple of minutes to download there. (I knew my home internet was awful, but had not realized quite how awful!)

Anyway, here is a new download link for the video! I'm really excited that I've finally found a way to make download links again!

My home internet sadly has no competition, so improvement isn't on their agenda. (They did raise their fees last month, though!)

Whenever I get a minute ( and before I forget how) I'm hoping to make download links of some more videos. At least now I know I need to test them at work!
