aorin: (Basch: OMG!!)
[personal profile] aorin
I had a hard time choosing the suitable icon for this post. The Basch/Vossler icon shows both characters, but it's rather ill-suited for this video. Oh well, it's not that important anyway :3

I dedicated this video to two amazing girls on youtube.com, namely Tanjavasi and Ananda81 (who happens to be twins in real life, btw XD). This wasn't on my to-do list or any list, but inspiration struck hard and I made this with the thought of dedicating the video to these girls, whom to my knowledge, considers Basch and Vossler to be their favourite characters in the game respectively, and share the same fondness in musicals.

Also, Tanja happens to be one of my first few friends within this fandom through forums and later youtube. An incredible fanvid creator whom created the famous Basch video "I'll Make A Man Out of You" and also, the popular and romantic Basch/Ashe video "It Is You (I Have Loved)". While, Ananda, who I end up knowing later, created two lovely Basch/Ashe videos as well (Dear Basch and If You Only Knew)

Otherwise, personally, I always wanted to create a fanvid with Vossler taking the center stage, and I'm glad I have a chance to do so in this video (Next target is Noah, once I find a suitable song for him). But I've currently lost the motivation to do anything, so it might take a while before I upload anything else, whether it is fanfic or fanvid. T___T

Also, a word of thanks to [profile] crazy18gurl, [personal profile] astrangerenters, and [profile] merry_rogue for your comments on youtube. As for the 'At The Beginning', I'm afraid two people have beaten me to it. Neither of them are focused on Basch/Ashe, but still, I'm not sure if I should attempt a third FFXII video with the same song X3

Title: Learn To Do It
Fandom: Final Fantasy XII
Character(s): Vossler, Basch, Ashe
Song: "Learn To Do It" from Anastasia
Rating: G
Summary: Ashe was certainly not famous for being demure, and more of a warrior princess than a meek maiden. If you ever wonder who taught the desert princess proper social graces, chances would be that we might catch a glimpse of two hardworking Dalmascan captains. It's tough being a Captain!

Ah I remember that video. I really really liked it, it was really great. Vossler, Basch and Ashe, it all fitted in perectly with the song and the story to it. You did a real awesome job on it.

Oh and you're very welcome ^_^

Whhaat? Two people have already done an mv with At The Begining and you were plannin on doin on too?? Lol, that was one of my song choices xD and I had planned to use it after completing the one Im currently working on. Oh well...yeah when a trend of using the same song starts, it'll show lack of originality. Sometimes. Still, not the best choice. But I'm the persistent kind so I might just go for it lol xP

I just want to let you know that I truly appreciate your kind comments and feedback on the videos. It brings me joy to find out that you enjoyed it :D

Well, I didn't have any intentions on making "At the Beginning" until [livejournal.com profile] merry_rouge suggested it. And till now, I'm sitting on the fence, and yet to decide if I should go on with the idea. I might, but I still want to finish some of the older videos first.

Aha, it's such a coincidence! I know one of the videos on youtube is a really old video, create back when the game was just released, and the other one was a Rasler/Ashe and Penelo/Vaan centric video. As this song is a really popular duet, I'm sure a lot of people would create a video with it, and also partly because of the theme.

Still, I highly encourage you to go on with the idea. I'd like to see a Balthier/Fran video with this beautiful song. So yeah, persevere, and keep up with it ;)

You're very welcome ^_^ Its true when I say I really enjoy your music videos.

It'd be quite interessting to see a 'At the Begining' music video from you, but hey it's all up to you. I love all youre mvs no matter what the song.

It is quite the coincidence xP The song is quite popular, it is a really sweet song.

Hmm...ya know, I think I'll still go for it =]

Aw thanks ^^ I wish I could get started on it already but I hafta complete the one I'm currently working on before I do. This one will require a lot of effort and I want to go to the next step with my music video skills.

That's quite pleasing to hear XD

I'd probably give up the notion for the time being. With a job interview and an anime convention lined up, I doubt I'll have much time these days, and worst, my computer isn't always at hand (it's in my dad's office).

But I do have other mvs in mind, some are completed and needs to be touch up, others are half complete, and there are a couple more that I've barely started X3

*sigh* I really wish I can be as determine as you in making amvs, but it's just that, if I get too obsessed with one video, it'll take me forever to finish. And it'll always remain incomplete like some of my on-going fics. T____T

Hehe ^-^

A job interview eh? Good luck with that. I recently got a job myself. I really like web designing and I make websites for people for free and just over the summer I finally got my first paying job. This one shall be my second =] Best of luck to you.

Ack, theres a limiting factor xP

Working with music videos, trying to make it perfect, finding the motivation and all, yeah it can be tricky. For me, I've always been about determination and concentration when it comes to doing something I like. I guess thats why its somewhat a bit easier for me. But its not always so easy, there are things that'll limit my time like school and all. I'm just lukcy I got these 3 weeks of winter holiday comin up.

But hey, you just gotta try your very best. Knowing that I always do the best I can satisfies me and I'll know that there shall always be a next time where I can do even better. So it's all up to you, just dont give up.

And I'm sure any amount of time shall be worth the wait for your awesome music videos =D

Argh!! Long story, but basically I got the job but quit within the week. That workplace is horrible, the people are horrible, the travelling distance is killing my fuel and car (I got into an accident after 3 days of work), and seriously, nothing about that place is worth staying... I mean, seriously, 15 minutes of lunch each day, and working over time for 2 hours even after my work is completed!! How preposterous, I can take pressure, but that doesn't mean that they should exploit the workers.

... Sorry for the rant though XP But I'm just glad I end it on good terms with the boss, but I really don't think I ever want to return to that place.

Hehe, it would great if I can leech some of your determination and concentration X3 I enjoy making fanvids and writing fanfic, but it takes too much of my time, and gets in the way of my RL at times, and I end up receiving an earful from my family. And that really kills the mood, otherwise, sometimes, I get really lazy, and that's not good either :3

But I try to improve as times goes, trying on new stuff, and using different methods. While the end product might not be spectacular, it pleases me to know that I've at least tried my best :D

I'll try to upload something before the end of the year, originally I wanted to create a chrismas special or something, but seems unlikely, as I'll be starting on a new job soon, and the year end festivities are clogging my schedule >D

Oh dang, that doesnt sound good O_o.

Extra work hours? An accident?? Now that is just terrible. I say it was best that you quit.

Hey no problem, we all gotta just let out the need to just...choke something...or someone...>.>

Lol anyways, well I guess since doin stuff on my laptop is part of my RL time as I am such computer freak (plan to major in computer sciene or maybe graphic design) I guess that's what really gives me the edge. In my belief its really all up to the person.

No need to ever preasurize or stress yourself out over your vids or fics, I gotta take some time off myself and just relax. You just continue to do your best and dont worry too much about it.

Ah that's great ^_^ But like I said, no need to over preasurize yourself, the wait will always be worth it =]

First, sorry for all the late reply, I've been a bit ghostly on LJ, zooming in and out all the time. That, and I don't know where to begin in clearing out all the back log posts XP

But yeah, well, it's over anyway, and it teaches me a lesson on working life. I mean, I believe that it's not all fun and games when you work, but what I went through back then was pretty ridiculous. Still, glad it's over for good, and I want nothing to do with that place X3

Hehe, I spend an indecent amount of time in front of the pc too, but, I have some unavoidable problems. For one, the pc that I normally work with is at my father's office and I'm sharing a computer with my younger sister. So, it's quite hard for me to work on things in a pace that pleases me. And I kind of have to wrestle with my sister for her pc, since she's also a computer freak and spends more time communicating with the pc than she does with human XP

Thanks for the encouragement :) *hugs* I'll try to balance my time better and produce more videos, nothing spectacular, but minimally decent :3 And fics, I hope that I'll be more discipline in updating next year XD

Hey no prob. I'm terribly sorry for my late reply xD

No, sadly, life aint all fun and games. No matter how bad one wants it to be xD

Aw that sucks =( I use to have to share a pc with my bro but then thankfully I got myself my own laptop, but even before that I'm the one mostly on the pc xP God I'm such a computer freak lol.

Lol, quite the interessting sister.

No prob ^^ Hey I find all your vids totally spectacular ;]

Damn about "At the Beginning," but oh well, I expect you'll come out with much better ones than that anyway. ^_~

Seriously, I wouldn't have expected the "Mob Song" to be a great song choice for an amv, but yours gives me chills.

We'll see how it goes. Right now, I've lost the motivation to create any video, and I'm kind of busy with some issues in RL. You know, same old, same old... (and you would think I'll have more freedom during Christmas T____T). But worry not, I shall complete at least one Basch/Ashe video before the end of the year. No promises, but I'll try!!! X3

Also, thank you for the comment on this video and 'The Mob Song' :D Ever since I started making videos, I have a new appreciation for villain songs, and I'm glad you all enjoy the humour and crossovers, and those little Basch/Ashe hints in them ;)

Hey, life happens. We understand when things get in the way of videos. It's not like you're making money putting them out. ;P

And thanks for making these whenever you can. I personally think you've gotten even better at making videos since I've started watching them.

And Mob Song? It's just too perfect. Not just the set-up, but getting all of the judges synced up and then the Strahl "going into battle"--I'm totally not kidding when I say that I get really excited watching that video over and over again. ^_~

For now, I have a job interview and an anime convention lined up in my schedule, which means, chances of me having the opportunity to be near my pc is almost nil. T____T

Hey, getting comments from you people are one of the main reasons why I haven't given up on making amvs XD It's better than getting paid!! Also, I'm still not happy with the meagre amount of Basch/Ashe videos, there should be MORE!!! So, yeah, until I'm satisfied with the quota of Basch/Ashe videos, you will not see me switch pairings

Hehe, I'm only too happy with the opportunity to use the judges in these videos whenever I can. Because they are seriously under-rated characters :D I'm still looking for song which would suit Noah (kind of found one, but ultimately Basch has more lines than Noah, it'll do for now)

Gosh, again. This is just so cool since this is one of my favorite movies ever. EVER!

OMG!! OMG OMG OMG OMG IDEA!

So you know in Anastasia where Anya accidentally smacks Dmitri and he's all "I think you broke my nose!" and Anya's all "Men are such babies"??? Well uh, I don't know how you'd get the sound for that, but that screams Ashe + Basch + Leviathan + SMACK!!!

Wow, I sound like I'm on drugs.

^__________^

I'd like to have some of those drugs you are taking! PLEASE!!! *lays out a palm*

Yeah, I do remember that scene, and now that you've mention it... O___o It does sound strangely appropriate as parody material! WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO IT!! (I don't have sound clips for that scene, therefore I might have to forego this idea DX)

Dang it, I don't have those clips either. I only have the movie on VHS, hahaha. If they have the clip on Youtube, it's possible to rip the audio though *ponders*

May Vossler achieve some peace in his afterlife!! As for Basch, let's just that hope Ashe present him with some befitting reward for his services XD

I'd love to be in Ashe's shoes though XD
