Skullcrusher Mountain - a Ben/Juliet music video
Was this ever fun!

I've been hoping to get the chance at some point to collaborate with [ profile] katernater on a video project. We've talked about it in the past but we just never had the time to get together on it, but over the past few weeks time treated us differently, and this is the amazing, wonderful result. Kate never hesitates to send me songs that she finds fitting for one of our pairings of kids (we're up to four now!) and now that we've adopted Ben and Juliet (sorry, Kendra, you'll have to forgive me - I'm just drawn to it!) she's sent me a couple that are insanely perfect. But this song in particular got the wheels turning, especially when Kate told me she thought it would make a perfect video.

To make a long story short, one day I had some time before work and put together the beginning part (up through the first chorus or so), sent it to Kate, and was rewarded with a prompt, giggly phone call of approval. I asked her to let me know what she thought the rest of it should be like, and she sent me her notes and thoughts which I in turn made happen. It had to sit for a little while because I needed some time to sort through things, but I finished it up last night and now that it's met her seal of approval, we think it's time to share it with the world!

My gratitude goes (of course!) to my dear [ profile] katernater for not only coaxing me further into LOST but for being there to encourage me when things are down, and to [ profile] cryptictac and [ profile] effulgent_girl for feeding my obsession with the island and all of its inhabitants. I promise that soon, I will finish season five!

Comments are welcome - we would love them! - and we hope you enjoy it!

Bwuhaha, oh this song is so very perfect for them isn't it? Ah Ben, and his wonderfully warped mind; certainly my favourite aspect of LOST. The ending was sweet :3

They have a sweetness about them, don't you think? :)

In the strangest way possible, they do. I wish we'd had some proper scenes between Juliet and young Ben, how interesting would that of been?

Wait a second, you haven't finished season 5? IGNORE MY FIRST COMMENT.

I've never heard that song before but I LOVE IT. <33
It fit so very well with the whole ship as well; it was awesome! *APPLAUDS*
I think you made the clips work brilliantly with the song and it was a funny and really memorable vid!
Thanks so much for making it and sharing it too! :DD
PS: I'm going to download it if that's all right! :D

Awesome. I'd never heard that song before. Who sings it? Is it from something specific?

It's a fellow by the name of Jonathan Coulton. He does a lot of fantastic, kitschy songs, typically in the "nerd" category.

I guess it's alright;) You totally need to finish season 5 because your mind will be blown, in the best possible of ways. And there might be new shipping.
I might be able to download this next Friday, if I can get over to the school lab before I have to pick up the brother. I just realized I have very little Lost vids in my collection. I suppose a Juliet/Ben one will have to nudge in there along with the Sawyer/Juliet, Jack/Kate and Charlie/Claire ones. It will be the lonely vid of shipness;)

<3! It's a fun angle, I think you might laugh and find it amusing. Kate's mind is brilliant, I am so floored by the fun things she comes up with in her amazingness.

I do plan to finish season five soon! Maybe in the next few days! I've been in a little bit of a work-crazed place but they're finally letting up, thank goodness, so that means more time for fun things!
