…oh god do not watch this video unless you are prepared to get three branches in your eye and have it rain all over your face because of how much you love Kurt Hummel and his amazing identity and his gender and his beauty and his embodiment of so much strength and vulnerability at the same time…

Lolachrome also put it up at her LJ, if you feel moved to comment.

My thanks once again to Dr. M. for drowning me in feels.

Title: Games

Vidder: lolachrome

Rating: Unrated

Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson (gen)

Summary: At the heart of it, I was trying to get at the way John is drawn to dangerous games–to playing with the line between life and death, and to the place underneath logic where the irrational and death break through–and that all of this comes to him through Sherlock. And of course Sherlock too is drawn to dangerous games, perhaps even more so, with similar impetuses, and thus they’re drawn inexorably to each other.

Rec: This is a sharply put together exploration of John’s attraction to danger. The quick edits and remixed music give a sense of how John is always just on the edge of things, trying desperately to hang on and keep up with Sherlock, and how he lives from moment to moment, always chasing the next rush. The video is incredibly cohesive despite the fast-paced switches from scene to scene, all suffused with a sense of unreality and dread beneath the excitement. And it’s a really cool remix of the song, too.
