New Vid: ST:DS9 - Into the Fire  

Artist/Song Title: Thirteen Senses - Into the Fire
Vidder: Xandra
Fandom: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Character Study
Spoilers everything (but seriously it's been over for 10+ years)
Sisko's journey into the fire.
Notes: I've been working on this vid for a long time. I was focused on the song for a long time and paired with the show and Sisko's journey really felt like the way to go. I wished the song was longer. I had to make a difficult cut of Sisko's first meeting with Picard, if only i had one more verse.

I have no idea what the video is about, but it looks beautiful and very deep. And I can't believe it took you years to finish, that's so unYOU.
xandra_ptvxandra_ptv on August 19th, 2011 06:19 am (UTC)
well even though it took me a few years to actually finish it, I never spent a lot of time working on it. That first season I finished in about 4 hours before i got stuck.

But thank you love.

That was beautiful. And the ending broke my heart.

Thank you, glad you liked it. My mother, my beta on this, started tearing up when i showed it to her.

Oh, that was awesome.

Well, now I want to do my second DS9 rewatch in as many years, so there's that.

Ben Sisko is one of my favorite characters in the extended Trek universe, and this vid does an excellent job of illustrating some of the ways in which he and his story are both fantastic.

Thank you. <3

My parents just started re-watching them again, and I got reinspired. I grew up in a star trek watching family and DS9 was my favorite. Most people forget about it because it had a slow start (that is until you rewatch it).

Thanks for watching, glad you liked it.

I enjoyed this look at the captain. There aren't enough DS9 vids out there.
xandra_ptvxandra_ptv on August 21st, 2011 04:18 am (UTC)
thank you, it's my favorite, if I get inspired again I'll vid more.

very neatly done. It's been a while since I watched DS9, so I know I'm missing pieces of the puzzle in my dim dark memory, but you really tied up Sisko's struggles very neatly and with one of my favourite pieces of music too. :D
Thanks for sharing!
xandra_ptvxandra_ptv on August 21st, 2011 04:19 am (UTC)
Thank you. I love the song, I've wanted to use it since I heard it years ago on the 4400.

Oh, I used to love DS9 so much, and this is a wonderful tribute to a great character. Well done you.
xandra_ptvxandra_ptv on August 21st, 2011 04:20 am (UTC)
thank you.

This had me reaching for the tissues pretty early on. I love the story you told with this. Trek vids are very hard for me to watch because the song choice usually never works for me. I can honestly say that this vid does it all for me. Great job!
xandra_ptv: vidderxandra_ptv on August 21st, 2011 04:20 am (UTC)
I think it's all about the song, it's just so powerful. Thanks for watching.

I'd forgotten just how much I loved DS9 and Sisko. Thanks for reminding me with this brilliant vid.
xandra_ptvxandra_ptv on August 21st, 2011 04:21 am (UTC)
Your welcome. lol. Glad you liked it.

Sisko... Be still my heart!

I really enjoyed this, even though I don't know the show. The character's majesty came through loud and clear.
endeni on August 24th, 2011 09:29 am (UTC)
Oh, Sisko... ♥ That was really epic!
Loved the baseball ball sequences. (Of course, we know the show is really all a big baseball metaphor... :D)
xandra_ptvxandra_ptv on September 8th, 2011 06:20 am (UTC)
thank you! I know, baseball, how can anyone have a DS9 vid, especially a Sisko vid without it.

This was wonderful. It's been a long time since I've seen the show, but this made me want to go back and watch it all over again.
xandra_ptvxandra_ptv on September 8th, 2011 06:22 am (UTC)
Thanks. Me too.
