Arrogance appeals to me. What can I say?

FanVid | In Your Eyes (Peter Gabriel)

Luke and Reid – In Your Eyes (a LuRe ATWT Fanvid) from LoveLure on Vimeo.

For those of you wondering what I’ve been up to, I’ve had a few things stuck in my fangurling queue that I’m finally finishing up. Top priority has been to make good on my promise to Marsabi to deliver on a LiveJournal (noah_who) auction for Japan video. And here it is! Finally!

For those of you paying attention, you’ll find that this is my first foray into Vimeo. As it turns out, the audio track was blocked by YouTube in the US, making it somewhat less than useful! I even tried downloading the track from a pre-existing YouTube video and tweaking the speed, but it was still rejected.

So, the good news is, Vimeo seems to offer superior picture quality. The bad news is that it seems to be really slow to buffer in HD, so I’d suggest watching with HD turned off, or waiting until the buffer is full before trying to play (click the Play triangle, and immediately push Pause and wait for the gray bar to fill up the screen before playing the video all the way through).

I’ve adored this song since I watched John Cusack’s aspiring kickboxer serenade his sweetheart-wannabe with his boombox, and with my never-ending fascination with everything Luke and Reid, it was one that definitely reminded me of them.

Hope you enjoy it! Comments welcome (and let me know how you get on with Vimeo!).

    Oh LL, this was simply beautiful. You’re right. This song is perfect for them. You captured the ‘specialness’ that only LuRe had. The challenging nature, the true acceptance, the love. They spoke more with their eyes than most characters would with a full page of dialogue. Thank you for letting me fall back in love with them all over again. <3

      Thanks, for the kind words, as always, SnapeGirl! I’ve only had time in awhile to watch anything but an episode clip here and there so I had to really hunt to remember which clip was in what episode. The side benefit was catching some clips I wouldn’t have ordinarily included. One of my favorite “rediscoveries” was the one scene Luke tells Reid “that’s bull!” and Reid doesn’t even try to protest. I initially dropped it in as “filler” until I could find a better clip, but it was so carefree and unsassuming (with so much laughter in both their eyes) that it ended up being one of my favorite clips in the final cut as well. Thanks for watching!
