Spike and Angel (comics / vid)

Last month's Buffy comic (S10 issue #15) ended like this:

As a result of this phone call, Angel will be coming to visit the Scoobies in San Francisco. We will see what happens in tomorrow's issue. Buffy and Spike are openly in a relationship now, so awkwardness is guaranteed.

But this is not really a comics post. I'm just using the comics as an excuse to post an old Spike/Angel vid of mine, "I Hate You", which I was reminded of by those final panels of #15. It's also an anniversary of sorts: it's almost exactly a year ago that I first posted "I Hate You" on YouTube. (Sadly, it's also my most recent vid. Work on my current vid project has been on hold since the end of last year due to lack of time. I hope I'll be able to pick it up again in the summer.)

Anyway, on to the vid:

Aww, thanks for reminding how much I love this vid =)

Thanks! It's still one of my favourites among my own vids.

Hahahaha! I don't remember seeing this before, but it's awesome. Poor Angel.

You did a really nice job intercutting the fight scenes, and I like how you solved the aspect-ratio problem by using a border. Very clever.

Thank you! I'm really happy to hear you liked it.

Normally I would use cropping to deal with the different aspect ratios, but in this case I wanted to use the border with the logos to express the rivalry between the two and give it a touch of a western.

This is so excellent!

Thank you so much! (And LOL at your icon!)

That was brilliant!
Jun. 17th, 2015 10:20 am (UTC)
Thanks, glad you like it! I had a lot of fun making this one.

Love it! Great song and brilliant clips. Love Angel has the last word. So him! Aww, they love to hurt each other. :D

Thank you, glad you enjoyed it! I had to give Angel the last word after all he suffered :-)

Also many thanks for reccing the vid on your LJ, that's really nice of you!

Ha, so you take delight in seeing Angel bludgeoned, stabbed, tortured and humiliated, huh? Tsk :-)

But seriously, thanks! Glad you enjoyed it.

Really? To be honest, I was only joking and had no idea whether you in fact liked Angel or not. So it turns out my little joke had more truth in it than I thought!

I like Angel well enough myself (not counting stupid S8 Angel that is), but still I had fun letting Spike bash him in this vid!

This was so wonderful!!!

Thank you very much, I'm happy to hear you enjoyed it!

Oh man, what a freaking great vid! The song is so perfect (and I am now looking up other music by the Stranglers, haha) and everything fits just perfectly.

I've been spending lots of time reading in the side of fandom where Spike can sometimes get a bit woobie-fied, so it's nice to be reminded of all the times he comes out on top :P

Thank you, you're making me blush! And you'll find that I Hate You is not exactly a typical Stranglers song. They have a pretty varied repertoire, but it's pretty much all great (in my modest opinion as a big Stranglers fan). Also, lots of their songs fit very well with the Buffyverse. In fact, half of my vids to date are set to Stranglers songs, and I have plans for loads more :-)

Ooooh that was DELIGHTFUL! <3 <3 <3
Jun. 21st, 2015 11:03 pm (UTC)
Thank you, I am delighted by your comment! All the more because I love your fics. I haven't read all of them yet, but I really liked My Immortal and your Cavemen series, as well as Captain Spike (just to name a few). I probably never told you that, because I was still a lurker at LJ when I read them and very bad at commenting. I hope this makes up for it just a little bit!
Jun. 22nd, 2015 06:19 pm (UTC)
OMG! Thank you so much!

I always love it when lurkers delurk, it's like surprise Christmas presents. <3

(Friended you back - couldn't resist the banner! I should warn you though that I'm useless at commenting on people's posts, but if you're on my flist, I will read you.)

Thanks, glad you like the banner -- I like your icon too!

And don't worry about not commenting; having been a lurker for years, I totally understand :-)

Ha, that was brilliant!
Jun. 30th, 2015 08:43 pm (UTC)
Thank you!! I had lots of fun making it, and I guess it shows!

I hate you
Glad you reposted as I missed it the first time -- and yes, perfect tie in from the comics! Good luck with getting the newest vid on track.

Re: I hate you
Thank you! This was the vid's debut on my LJ; I had originally posted it only on YouTube and BuffyTube. Sadly my vidding activities are still on hold; at the moment I'm using my rare spare time making icons for summer_of_giles. So I'm going to be stuck with posting old vids for a while yet!

God, I love this! The glee on Spike's face! I've watched it already 5 times since last night (or more?)! One of the best vids I've seen so far. Brilliant!
Plus - you made me dust off my old Stranglers cd's, which I haven't listened to in ages!
Mar. 30th, 2016 06:20 pm (UTC)
Oh, thank you, thank you! So glad to hear you like it. Spike's joy at beating (on) Angel is rather contagious, isn't it :D

As for brushing off your Stranglers cd's, yay! Big added bonus! I'm a big Stranglers fan myself (as will be obvious to anyone who has watched even only a few of my vids) and I'm always happy to meet people who like them too.
