New vid - Veronica Mars

A brand new vid, hot off the... er, computer. It's a Veronica/Weevil vid, because I am just that kind of a girl. I think they were meant for each other and should get married and somehow his criminal past will be magically erased and she will become a famous FBI agent and he will be her kept husband who tinkers with cars and motorcycles and they go off on his bike and have crime-fighting hot weekends together.

Anyway.

27 Jennifers
Artist: Mark Doughty
Fandom: Veronica Mars
File: Divx 26.4 MB
Streaming here
And then there was her...

Please let me know if you have trouble DLing or watching the file (especially if VLC doesn't work on it). I've had a lot of problems getting web files after all the upgrades necessary for Leopard, and not everything is working right, and this is the first file I've had with that .divx extension. My site's no longer password protected, in case you didn't know.

This one's for you, kassrachel. I hope it's not too crappy because there is nothing worse than a crappy dedication. And it's 96% violence-free! Squee, crit, links or recs, and pimpage are all more than welcome.



I think I just wanted to make a really light, fluffy, happy vid for a change because of the usual depresso-rama after VVC that I get into. I wanted to try to make myself happy. trelkez's Veronica Mars lunch at the con really made me nostalgic for that wonderful show, and especially for my beloved Weevil. Sadly, the best we ever got on the show was a hug, and what I wouldn't have given for even a peck on the cheek, but maybe someday I'll get someone to make a photo manip of them or something.

The song has been a vid for me for years, but it wasn't till VM came on the air that I thought it could really be a vid with an actual fandom. I have a Lord King Bad Vid idea for the two, already, but I wanted to make something light and cheery. And I just had to RUSH -- I mean, I don't usually make vids this fast or give urgent requests for songs and what have you. Unfortunately I also wasted hours and hours trying to make a cute title card, but with my inability to do anything Photoshopish, I failed miserably and had to resort to plain ol' credits.

To me, the school is filled with "Jennifers" -- all the bubble-heads and vicious bitches and whiners, but Veronica never fit in with that group, even when she was in it, so she's the "her" Doughty sings of, the one who stands out from the crowd. And of course, Eli knows that so very well.

I didn't get this beta'd so it might suck, but I was happy with it, I guess, and didn't really feel like getting my glow tarnished by anything critical -- which isn't to say that if you have something critical, you can't say it, because you can, now that it's done and out there. I believe anything that's out there is fair game for comments of any kind. I hope you have as much fun watching as I did making.

Lyrics for 27 Jennifers
I went to school with 27 Jennifers
16 Jenns, 10 Jennies, and then there was her

It’s the sweet shine of,
Yeah, force of divine love
The blessed arrival of you

You might be the one that I’ve been seeking for
You might be the strange delightful
You might be the girly who shall end all girls
You might be the sweet unspiteful

I rode the bus with 27 Jennifers
15 Jenns, 10 Jennies disapproved of her

Yeah, get from my sight, man,
Gladness is a blight, and
Happiness stinks up the room

OH MY GOD eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

You can't see me but I'm jumping up and down with glee.

My train of thought went like this:

Hey, new vid from Gwyn, awesome.
Hey, it's VM, that's even more awesome.
OMG IT'S FOR ME!!!!!!!

::clutching vid to my heart::

Okay, hang on, I'll be back in a second and maybe even coherent by then.

It has always been so nice to have a fellow Weevil lover out there, knowing I wasn't as crazy as I thought. Another show and pairing that is gone but not forgetten! Also, you deserve lots of vids. Cuz you're you.

Oh, Gwyn, this is adorable! The song is awesomely disenchanted high school and fits VMars perfectly, and I love what you did with the rectangular and square frames and also with the jail lineup.

Sorry it took me so long to reply -- thank you! I love that phrase "awesomely disenchanted high school." That's such a perfect assessment.

Oh my god, AWESOME. This makes me grin and at the same time (and actually, for the first time in a while) miss VM. I love what you did with the cropped frames, or whatever you would call that effect -- it works really nicely with the song's quirky tone and emphasizes the pile-up of all those useless Jennifers. Useless except the one that Weevil's been seeking for, of course. (And yes, he and Veronica were totally MFEO. I am with you.)

So much love for this vid!

(Also, how much do I adore that you vidded a Mike Doughty song? EEE. He is totally my wisecracking songwriter crush.)

I am so glad you liked it!!! Coming from the only person I know who's used a Soul Coughing/Doughty song, that is exceptional news. He has such a great voice, especially for this kind of theme, and it sounds like nothing else out there, which adds to the whole feel (because Veronica and Weevil are like nothing else out there!).

Thank you so much! I have been sitting on this for a couple of *years*, and I don't know why it took me so long!

This is so totally adorable, and it made me so very happy, and cheered me no end! I wasn't particularly a Veronica/Weevil girl, but in retrospect he's just about the only guy that I think could keep up with her, and he's definitely the only one that was really always there for her.

Love. It.

Sorry it took me so long to reply -- life gets in the way! I'm so glad it made you happy (you probably need a lot of that after the con is over). He really is the only one who could ever seem to keep up with her or keep her on her toes. I loved the way he always rescued her, and she him -- I don't know of any other relationship quite like that on TV, and I did totally love the friendship angle (but I'm such a smooshie hearted girl that I couldn't help wishing for other things).

LOVE LOVE LOVE! Awwwwww. I love Weevil and Veronica together, they are so cute and devious and HOT and YAYAYAYAYAY!

They are!! They are devious and HOT! What a fantastic word to describe them. I am so glad you liked it!

I'm sorry, I automatically thought VM and Torchwood Veevils - hmmm.... if anyone could do it it'd be Gwyn...

but yes to this vid! What i liked the most was the 27 jennifers on the third iteration turning into VM - brilliant!

I don't watch VM (or didn't? has it ended?) but I thought this was very cute.

Thank you! Yes, it ended, unfortunately, after the third season, I guess it would be 2007. It was never really supported when the WB and UPN merged, and things kind of went downhill, but the potential for S4 looked really good, so it is such a crying shame.

I know, right? Veronica and Weevil were totally made for each other! Thank you so much, I'm glad you liked it.

This is so much fun! :) I was also always a fan of the V/W vibe, so it was especially nice to see this show up. Also, is it too early to get in line for the LKBV? ;}

Sep. 6th, 2008 08:45 pm (UTC)
Hey, that is big praise, coming from the person who made my favorite Weevil vid, Cool Rider (OK, Logan's in there too, of course!). I really am missing this show now, unfortunately -- the side effect of vidding something gone too early.

The LKBV will be EPIC, I tell you. EPIC.

(I posted a comment 2 days ago where did it goooo. Woe.)

This was really sweet! Excellent song choice. I was really fond of Weevil and the snarky banter he and V had going. He had that right combo of not putting up with her shit but also being loyal.

I'm so glad you liked it! Yes, he totally didn't put up with her, except when he so obviously wanted to -- and I loved how they were always helping each other out, no matter what else was going on or even if they didn't want to. He was one of the few guys on that show besides Wallace who could be her equal.

Thank you so much! I'm so glad there are other folks out there who don't think I'm entirely crazy about this relationship. ;-)
