That was very confusing - then again, so was Lost xD The editing was great. The colour was a tad too orange-y/sauturated for my taste - but it's really just that. Taste. You did a great job =)

I'm hoping those who are familiar with Charlie's story arc in season three will get it, but I was a little worried about it, so I will be happy to explain if anyone else is confused Thanks for watching

I understood this vid perfectly and OMG this vid was perfection. The coloring, the edits, the layering was awesome always but that theory... You just blew my mind with your theory. I never thought of it the way you explained it and it makes such perfect sense. Your theory is so interesting and you gave perfect examples to back up your idea. I just can't get over how amazing this vid was. I love how you included the entire speech given by Malkin. And the whole thing about Jack and Kate. With him saying there's a couple in Los Angeles who aren't strangers...everything about this vid just makes perfect sense. Great job and good luck on the contest.

Yay!!! I'm so glad you understood it, Brooke! Thank you so much for the lovely comment! I'm so happy you liked the theory too! I'm not too sure where it came from. I was thinking of explaining why it was important for Aaron to be raised by Claire, but settled on this instead. I'm sooo glad you liked it! Thank you

What a cool answer! I never would have equated the island trying to kill Charlie over and over to Aaron's future and who he was to be raised by. It was very unexpected, but it worked brilliantly. Loved the music, it really added to the suspense. I liked the editing, the way you built the mystery. I liked the way the answer built through the vid, it made it feel like watching a mini-mystery. At first I thought Charlie was bad for Aaron, then I started to see Claire wasn't meant for him either. I liked that there were layers to the answer.
You brought so many of my Lost theories to life in your vid and I absolutely loved seeing it!
I had noticed since the Pilot when the wing almost fell on Charlie that the island seemed to have it out on him. It was great to see a vid giving an answer as to why. 2:14 was my favorite. I have had the theory that Malkin was talking about Jack and Kate as the "couple in Los Angelas" for so long. It was awesome to see that play out. Christian's line at 2:45, that Aaron was where he was meant to be, I loved that you used that. I always thought that line was important since Sawyer had the baby taking him to Kate in the series when Christian said that. I really liked the way you used that line with Kate having Aaron when she left as O6. The manip of Charlie and Aaron in the Oceanic 6 was really cool.The ending was so sad and beautiful. It made me quite happy to see Kate and Jack get to raise Aaron in this version, but it was also heartbreaking that Claire and Charlie weren't meant to raise him. I loved the visual of the "happy family" over the ocean. This was a fantastic vid, Jemma!

I'm so happy you enjoyed it, Macaila! I'm glad you liked the layers to the theory and you totally got what I was going for! Yeah the Malkin speech was perfect for Jack/Kate! I have no idea if that's what he really meant, but it made so much sense especially when he says they're not strangers! I'm glad you liked that, I knew it was a favourite theory of yours I wasn't going to include it at first but then I thought it just made sense to include it. Thanks so much again for the lovely comment <3

WOW. What a creative idea, and so beautifully done...the music was interesting w/o distracting from the voiceovers, and the transitions were beautiful. The ending was especially powerful, and I got chills when you showed clips of Charlie "raising" Aaron with the psychic's VO. I never even thought of that, that Charlie had to die because he wasn't supposed to raise Aaron. Very creative and just a beautiful vid. As a bonus, I loved the Jate.

Honestly I had never even though about Jate being "the couple in LA" until Macaela mentioned it here on LVI a few months ago. But it makes sense and you showed that really well.

Great vid!! Excellent storytelling.

I was so excited to watch this Jem!! Such a great idea, and such a clever idea weaving Claire's psychic thing into it, with Charlie parenting the child being a "danger" so he had to die because he wasn't supposed to raise Aaron.. And his thing about the couple who Aaron would be safe with being Jate, I'd always thought that, too! I had it in a vid awhile back, I agree about th e"not strangers" thing being the clue Excellent job!
