aorin: (Basch/Ashe: Reunion)
[personal profile] aorin
Rabid rats and fats cats in a bag!! I've never encountered so many errors and horrors from youtube before. Seriously, youtube have something against me today, and it took me practically forever (or at least, it feels that long) to post this video. I actually wanted to broadcast this video on Christmas day itself, but well, didn't manage to make it X3

That, and originally, I wanted to create a Basch/Ashe Christmas Special Video (well, something along those lines), but sadly, I couldn't complete it in time, and now, I'm not sure if I should continue with the project, erm, unless someone is interested... XP And the fics, well, I'll have something up by New Year... hopefully :D

Also, though, this might be a little late, I'd still like to wish everyone Merry Christmas ;)

Title: Forget About Love
Fandom: Final Fantasy XII
Character(s): Balthier, Basch/Ashe
Song: "Forget About Love" from Aladdin: The Return of Jafar
Rating: G
Summary: Sneaky Balthier is up to one of his mischieves (again!). As he tries to 'convince and advise' Ashe to forget about her love for Basch, by singing about his distaste for love and romance. His plans in separating (or uniting?) Ashe and Basch obviously backfired (or worked?) when the couple finally realises the feelings they share deep down and that they just can't 'Forget About Love' ♥

That was such a nice thing to watch! Filled to the brim with 'awwwwwww' material! You have such a way with this kind of stuff, it's so great!

Merry Christmas to you too! I hope you had a good day! :)

Hehe, thank you for watching, and glad you enjoyed it XD

The Basch/Ashe moments does make you feel all fuzzy inside, not? ;) And Balthier is such an amusing man with his ideas on love and romance XD

It's too late to wish you Merry Christmas again, so I'll just go with Happy New Year, and all the best for the coming year :D

Yes, they really do ♥ You seem to have a thing with putting Basch/Ashe into Disney songs such as this (and other songs, come to think of it) and making them awesome! :)

Happy New Year to you too! Hope it's great for you! :D

I have a tendency to put Basch/Ashe in everything, but yes, I'm more geared towards Disney and musical crossovers because 1) It's more humourous and silly; 2) Disney songs top my playlist XD

Apart from my stomach that seems to have something against me this morning. My first day of the year have been smooth sailing XD I hope it the same for you :D

I just died a bit inside, but it was death by awesome, so that's okay. xD Hilarious and WAFF. I thought nothing could be better than Balthier as Iago, but Basch with Aladdin's voice? Jeeze. Priceless. So very priceless. Not to mention a really great job syncing! Heading to YouTube to add it to my favorites. (:

This video wasn't made to hurt anyone, I swear!!! XD ok, maybe it was made to hit some of the funny bones in you, but by no means it was meant to cause any form of bodily harm or rip the soul from your body!! XD

Seriously, I don't know which is better, Balthier with a screeching bird-like voice or Basch hitting a teenage high pitch tone XD I've got something worse for them up my sleeves, but that's reserve for the New Year ;)

Also, thanks for watching and putting it in your favourites XD *hugs and cuddles*

Oh My God, that was just pure awesome! Girl you are so the best for making it! I especially loved Balthier part in this, his synced with Iagos, man I could stop laughing! xD It was great. And very fitting for Basch and Ashe. I couldnt stop going awwww when they were singing. Of course I started laughing again at Iago's last line xDD

Great job aorin! This was definitley worht the wait.

Definitley going into my favorites!

Eck!! Darn, I just realise that I haven't reply to this comment :O *headdesks*

Thanks for watching and I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed it. And seriously, getting a comment and approval from you is just so gratifying XD

To be honest, I've always wanted to create a video with Basch and Ashe performing a duet. But sadly, to this date, I've to come across an appropriate song =.=||| For now, this is the closest to that dream and I just couldn't give up the chance to tease Balthier (I normally don't shed much light over to him) XP Still, the Basch/Ashe moments does gives off a fuzzy feeling, ne? ;D

Hehe, once again, thanks for watching and putting it into your favourites ^o^ *hugs*

Allow me to join you in headdesk-ing for replying so late *headdesks*

Right, now that we got that out of the way xD

Well you're very welcome. I was watching it again. It is so sweet. The Lip sycning between Basch and Ashe, it's all just so...swweeeeeet, get all warm and fuzzy inside x33

I actually wanna trying the same for Balthier and Fran but I don't have an appropriate song at the moment.

Balthier, the leading parrot-er whatever xD

Once again, you're welcome ^.^ *huggles*

Hmm... I do have a couple of romantic duets :) Maybe you can consider some of it, it's mostly musicals though ;) (Nowadays, you only hear duets in musicals, nobody sings it anymore :/)

Jordan Hill and Billy Porter - Destiny
Collin Raye and Susan Ashton - The Gift
Shanice and Jon Secada - If I Never Knew You (Pocahontas)
Lea Salonga and Simon Bowman - Sun and Moon (Miss Saigon)
Elton John and Leann Rymes - Written in the Stars (Aida)
Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor - Come What May (Moulin Rouge)
Anne Hathaway and Jesse McCartney - Don't Go Breaking My Heart (Ella Enchanted) (What a wonderous crack video this would be if I lip synch Basch and Ashe with it. Jesse's unbelievably high-pitched voice on Basch's lips XDDD)

Er, I realise that most of these are really ancient songs, but I really couldn't think of any at the moment XP But, well, it would be nice if you'll take some into consideration ;) I'll try to come up with more if you want :)

PS: Balthier, the leading parrot-er whatever xD LOL! XD

Oh thanks! I'll definitley be sure to check out all those songs. Oh that's ok, I like old songs ^^ especially old disney classics. Heh, I was actually thinkin about using Once Upon A Dream from Sleeping Beauty, the idea came to me when I read the fic Sleeping Bunny, the ffxii parody of it xD

But thanks so much for those songs! Its off to youtube now.

Once Upon a Dream!! XD Oh my god, I'll never consider that song, first, I'll tear of my hair trying to lip-synch and if that's not bad enough, I shall continue to tear off my head and start eating it. That song is lovely, but I'd probably destroy the song in the process of making that video XP

You are welcome :) If those above are not enough, I can suggest more. Hmm... I've been listening to this old love song called Sometimes When We Touch by Dan Hills and Rique Franks, and I'm imagining how well-suited it would be for Balthier/Fran, maybe you can consider it too XD Also, if you need the songs that I've mentioned, just drop me a message, I can send it to you ;)

Lol! I might give it a chance, just for fun, but it'll probably be a tough one to tackle. I don't wanna eat my head xD

Aw thanks! You're such a sweetheart for sharing these songs for me. Oh that's okay, I was able to download all those other songs, they're all really sweet.This song, Sometimes When We Touch, now that was a really good song, I could already invision the scenes in my head. I don't usually work with slow songs but ones like these could work. Man when you have so many wonderful songs at your disposal, it's always so hard to decide xP

From: [identity profile]
I'm so fickle in choosing songs, and I try to relate all the songs in any possible way with my OTPs ;) So, I end up with tons of song on my to-do-list, it's easier to just simply combine scenes, but you know, sometimes, you just want to try something new ;) And that's the tough part :3

I think a Bal/Fran video with Sometimes When We Touch would be very romantic ;) So what if it's an oldies, it was re-recorded into so many covers, and there must be a reason for its continuous popularity XD

Oh my God, I've got so many song choices now, I'm going mad! I might as well just make a musical! xD ...actually thats not such a bad idea...but still, so many awesome songs! O.o

Sometimes When We Touch is a really sweet song that could work really well with Balthier and Fran, but I've never really worked with slow songs before, so it'll take a lot of planning. Hehe, yes, and I could just give it another reason for its continuous popularity xD

Make a medley ;) It's easier, I heard, but since I hate editting the audio tracks, I prefer not to. But, it'll be nice, and a good solution if you have too many songs :3

I really like to see you attempt slow songs, it'll be quite a challenge for a change ;) And I honestly feel that SWWT can depict their relationship quite well, there's a lot of nice lines suitable for them, and the lyric is romantic too :)

I'm good with editing audio, I do a lil digital music composing. But it'll be quite a challenge. I already have so many MV ideas which I wanna do, I dunno which one to do first! xD And suddenly out of nowhere this new idea came into my head a while agp, one that I did not go through any planning with and before I knew it, I opened up Vegas and already began working on it and it's already 30% complete xD

I hate it when you just get sudden ideas that came in the way of all of your other ideas. But oh well, it's a nice idea. And it's a slow song. And it really is a challenge.

Some parts are easy while some other drive me crazy. Since I'm such a prefectionist, each lil part takes me forever to do cuz I just cant get it right. There was one part that totally drove me crazy and I was ready to smash my fist on the wall O.o

Lol, after this mv, I'm gonna give myself a good fast song to work with xD

I'm definitley am to do a Medley, its going on my List of MVs To do. But when am I gonna do idea xP

Heh, that's great to hear, at least, you have the ability to edit the music and voice tracks. For me, urgh, let's just say that my music talent genes only take like 0.00001% of my body mass :P But yeah, when you have toooooooo many ideas, you don't know which one to go after first and when you get extremely greedy, you jsut want to try out every single one of them XD

Still, it's great when inspiration strikes, right? I haven't open my Vegas for ages, but surprisingly, I just did last night since I couldn't get the idea out of my head XD And you know what's the funniest thing, it WASN'T even an FFXII video. Oh well, better than nothing, it's been a while since I was actually inspired so I'll take whatever that comes. I tried out a few new tricks and I just realise how darn rusty I am right now T__T Nevertheless, I'm still in the mood to create that video and it's going to be a long project anyway, since:

(1) Compile all the necessary clips for the pairing (83 episodes, 25 minutes each. Whoo-hoo! ;D I'm so dead OTL)
(2) Install more RAM into my current pc (Lagging~~ :3)
(3) Install Sony Vegas 7.0 (or 8.0, cause 4.0 is sooo outdated!! It's great for straightforward videos, but try effects and the whole thing crashes)
(4) Try, learn and apply masking and other effects ;P (I know some basics, but any tips? Oh great and talented Lady Crazy18gurl XD)
(5) Make the darn video!! :3

O__O Oh dear... I feel your pain, really. As mentioned about that video above, I toiled over the smallest details (not that I want to but the song demand for it). Half the time, you literally just want to rip out the video and give it a good strangling :P

Oh btw, I'm currently working on two videos (three actually, but let's not go there) for D.Gray-Man (Pairing: Lavi/Lenalee). You are probably not familiar with them but I just want to tell you that I'm using the two songs: "Do You Know" and "Into the Night" because both songs are quite well-suited (especially Into the Night) for this pairing (what with them literally dancing/fighting in the night sky).

So, er, I hope you don't mind that I'm using the same songs as you did (you choose the best songs, damn it!!) X3 But one thing is for sure, I'll definitely add in the description that you've inspired me with your video because that's true ;)

0.00001%? Well...that's not sooo bad xD

Heh, I know. There are times I go too crazy over the matter, I just end up dumping the idea. But I haven't done that for this Musical Medley idea...yet at least, lol.

Totally is, to be able to just get back at something you love doing. While I got the inspiration for music videos, I would really like some inspiration for my gfx to kick in, cuz I havent done any graphics in a while. And I have to get some sites up soon o.o;;

Seriously? Not an FFXII vid? That Basch/ making a music video...but its not Basch/Ashe...*looks around eerily* Is it Judgement Day already? xD

Lol, well that's actually. Nice to take a turn from thing sometimes. I did for lil while myself recently. Didnt contribute anythin for the fandom, just went a lil fangirl-ish over it before returning to go mad for the coupling of humans and bunny women.

Well you definitley got a plan set out.

(1) Ah that sometimes takes quite some time.
(2) Yay for Ram! How much RAM do you currently have?
(3) You've been using Vegas 4 all this time??...heh, cool xD
(4) Sure thing! I'll help you out with whatever you need. Just let me know exactly what ya need help with.
(5) YAY!

Heh. At least now it's going good. Hopefully will be done soon.
Lavi/Lenalee? Of course I'm familiart with them!.....ok I'm not xD

Hey that's totally alright. Go ahead, you can use them =]

D'AAAAAAAAAAAW~~~ <3 ♥ So adorably cute. Iago!Balthier FTW totally. And...basch's voice surprised me, I forgot that Aladin had such a high voice. XD I laughed at first, but it was so amazing~ Can't wait for more! ^_^

Dang, why didn't see these posts earlier =.=|||

A super late reply, but I'd still like to thank you for watching the video and taking time to leave me a comment. I'm so glad that there are people that actually share the humour (I've got people complaining to me that I made a mistake in assigning characters, and getting all riled up because of Iago!Balthier. Sheessh... can't they take a joke XP)

Also, wanna be friends? XD

That was hilarious. Simply genius. Listening to Balthier sing so awfully is just priceless--and then---Basch sneaks in with a very high-pitched number! Oh my! Too chuckle worthy not to watch. XD

Delightful. You have such a great humour.

Aww... I just recall that I owe you a few replies here and there and all over the place :P Including the long post that you've sent me. It's insanely late, but if you don't mind, I'd like continue the discussion (honestly, you are always so nice to put up with my ramblings on ffxii, and I pray that I'm not a bother to you X3)

Also, thanks for watching the video. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed it because I've been getting some less than flattering comments on youtube for turning Balthier into Iago. Apparently, some people are offended and think I'm mocking Balthier, and they are even more peeved that Basch is Ashe's love interest. Don't they have a sense of humour? T__T And besides, they always make fun of Basch, and there's more than enough Bal/Ashe videos out there, so why take it on me X3

Oh well, drama happens everywhere, and I just don't want to deal with it. Bad enough that it happens in RL and now, it seeps into fandom as well. *sigh*

Also, again, apologies for all the late replies, will get back to each one of them ASAP. But you don't have to reply if you don't want to :D

I love Balthier's role in this; the 'anti-mush' seems [to me] very typical of him XD. Basch with Al's voice was awesome.

How was your Christmas, btw?

LOL!! I'm so happy that someone actually reads the summary, and understand that I'm not bullying Balthier and the intention of this video is not to show Balthier being jealous and trying to tear them apart. Neither is this a video to instigate the wrath of Bal/Ashe fans.

Like you said, Balthier is just being practical about his idea's on love, and the whole anti-mush, anti-love thing. I don't understand why some of the people on youtube think I'm doing this to mock Balthier (because I'm a Basch/Ashe fan, and all the things that I do is bleeding notorious, and out to insult them... Gah, get real people, what makes them think I want billions of fans coming after my skin =.=).

Er, this reply is dreadfully late, and Christmas is long over, but thank you for asking :) It wasn't so bad that day, but my family don't really celebrate it :D How bout yours and how are you recently? Haven't seen you in quite a while :3

Though, Chinese New Year is a different story XP

From: [identity profile]
Hehehe... I think it's certainly worth the hassle ;) Though, I'm quite unnerved by the response that I get from some fanbrats, but I don't care anymore. I specifically mentioned in the summary that Balthier was just being the typical anti-mush guy and stating his worldly views about romance. It's not even about him being jealous or whatsoever, but most of them probably don't even read it and make their own ass-umptions X3

Besides, can't they take a joke? :P

I believe the terrible connection and the errors that day has something to do with Christmas. Probably less staff from the Youtube team is working that day, and there's no one to maintain the traffic X3 Learnt my lesson though XD

I was laughing at first, because of Balthier having Iago's voice. And then I heard Basch with Aladdin's voice and I couldn't stop smiling. OMG, it's filled with aww moments. Great job!

I've got a feeling Balthier is going to hate me for this, but I just couldn't resist XD And Basch is probably going to bury his head in embarassment X3

I'm glad to hear that you've enjoyed this :)I do have a couple of FFXII/Disney parodies on youtube. But sadly, the best ones have been removed due to some copyright issues and I really don't know what to do at this point. Still, thanks for commenting and hope to see you around ;) It's been a while since I've met a new Basch/Ashe fan :)
