    Fantastic vid, Karolina! I wasn't familiar with this couple but their story is really interesting. The song worked so well for their storyline. I loved the way you did the "explosions" part. I thought this was a really unique story and you did a wonderful job telling it.

    Thank you so much, Jemma, Julia and Emma!!! ♥♥♥

    Jemma, I was re-watching BSG over the last few weeks - and Boomer/Chief broke my heart all over again

    Heartbreaking! I wasn't sure about this song for this couple, but you really made it work! I think the latter half is my favourite where the music really builds up and the pace increases, it really got my emotions running! Made me remember what an epic, heartbreaking journey they went through. I think everybody was amazed to find out that in the end, they were both cylons!!! A bit like my BSG OTP, Boomer and Chief lol. I really liked your voiceovers too. Wonderful job, Karolina

    Would you ever consider vidding Baltar/Six?


    Actually, yes, I totally would! I must admit that I didn't like both much first time around - but they both (and especially Caprica) grew a lot on me on my second watch. I can't think of a song atm - but yes, I'd definitely love to give it a try someday

    Heather: Thanks so much!! Their story is difficult to tell, especially to somebody who doesn't know the show, so I'm happy to hear that the vid does make sense

    That was great, Karolina! The storyline was so well done.

    I didn't ship the Tighs until New Caprica where they completely broke my heart. But yes, they were my fave BSG ship not counting my obvious fave Baltar/Gaeta. *sniff* I loved Boomer/Chief too. Would you ever consider vidding Baltar/Six?

    Thank you, cappy!!
    I had no idea you shipped the Tighs, eee!! I must admit that - while both characters grew on me a lot while watching BSG for the first time - I was probably too busy shipping Adama/Roslin and Boomer/Chief to really notice the beauty of the Tigh lovestory.
    I completely fell for them as a couple on my second watch. What a frakked up but truly epic ship indeed!

    Thank you for commenting!! <3<3<3

    Gaaaah!! This is frakking gorgeous, Kaja! My favorite BSG ship and you captured it more perfectly than I could have imagined. I especially loved all the moments of Saul being haunted by visions of Ellen and the placing of the moment when Saul realizes that Ellen is the Fifth out in the water. Love the song choice too. What a wonderful epic frakked up couple the Tighs were. Now I want to do a rewatch!
