Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] mfirefly10 and [livejournal.com profile] sabaceanbabe for doing beta for me :)
Lyrics can be found in my comment on YouTube.
Please watch in HQ.

I made this vid for "Mourn the Fallen" challenge at Across The Salt.
For those who don't know the challenge was about mourning the ending of BSG and celebrating characters we loved, and love still.
Initially I just wanted to express my sadness over the ending of BSG and pay my tribute to all the characters, but it turned out into something more while I was making it, an overall sadness for all the lives and hopes lost (on both sides) took over and... here it is...
Maybe a summary of this vid would be: "And then, one day, the war was over..."
Hope you'll enjoy watching! :)

Really great vid. I don't know much about vidding, but it seems like this took a lot of work! There is a lot of material in here in just a few short minutes. You make it all work beautifully.

Thanks :) I love those characters and it was hard to vid this knowing that's all we are going to see of them (The Plan would be something else...)

And I have two extra timelines filled with clips I haven't used...lol My greatest problem was to give each character aprox. the same amount of time and make it fit into what I wanted to show.*shrugs* I did my best and I'm aware that I left out a few of them.

I`m a fan of General Videos, and a Gen. BSG Video, in combination with the name [livejournal.com profile] sabaceanbabe ? this I just have to watch.

After watching I did a DL, and be sure I`m gonna keep this vid for a long itme.

This looks just awesome!

I love how you made the clips go together, the combination of related scenes from different episodes.

I am in love esp. with the instrumental bridge. This is so well done.

you have so many different scenes in this, and characters, I`m sure I`ll find something new each time I watch.

THANK YOU for sharing, and thank you for making this awesome vid in the first place.

Thanks so much for your nice comment :)

I just had to vid to this song and after BSG ended it felt perfect to express at least one small part of how I feel.

And ...Sbabe rocks! As a vidder, fiction writer...but most importantly as a friend ;)

Your welcome!

Still think this is brilliant and...it still makes me all weepy.

I really miss this show and these characters:(

I miss them too *hugs* That's why I think I'll never stop making BSG vids.

Great icon!

Hehe. Thanks. I didn't make it, though. Found it on photobucket a LONG time ago. No clue who made it/where it came from.

You make a lot of great visual connections in this and it's a beautiful choice of song. I found myself surprisingly taken with it despite my self-inflicted policy of denying vast tracts of the last half season ever happened. ;)

Thanks :)
I'm having a lot of issues with the last season myself ;)

Trying to express my mixed-up feelings in one vid - that could be a perfect summary for this vid. The war and circle of death and violence is over, they made peace but just remembering what they went trough and how much it all cost them made me feel unbelievably sad and sorry for them all, both cylons and humans. How do people feel when the war is over...heh

This is wonderful.

I was drawn in from the start with all of the isolated shots of them walking away. I found it incredibly sad, even though it featured the people who survived. But you've really done justice to all of them here and I really love the ways you transition between each character and their stories. Perfect song choice.

Thank you for your nice comment :)

I made this vid driven by emotions I couldn't quite understand and put them in words, and I think that only now, while answering the previous comment beccatoria made, I found them.
It's all about how people feel when the war is over... how the survivors feel knowing and remembering what they all went trough...

*sniffles* Uh, my allergies are acting up.

This was fabulous. I had chills up and down my spine... even though I wasn't fond of this particular version of the song, you won me over. It worked so well. Going to download now.

Thanks :D

I'm surprised someone else (but me) heard this version. I found it a while ago and as soon BSG was over I realised it would be perfect to show how I feel. It's incredibly sad but has a positive note in it.

And at the danger of sounding pathetic I must admit that I had tears in my eyes while editing the part where Natalie dies...:D

So beautiful!!! Thank you!!!

I'd love to download the HQ version, but I couldn't make the Rapidshare link to work... Help? please?

Oh boy, never mind... The Rapidshare link works perfectly well! I have a stupid DL accelerator program that messes up with Rapidhare. :-)

This is just stunning. Everything I love about BSG and a perfect song. I've got my mom and sister watching the show now and I can't wait till they are done so I can show this to them.

BSG is an awesome show and I'm recommending it to everyone I know too ;)
