  • Anime:
  • Comments: WARNING: This video contains one Yaoi scene of two guys kissing. If you can't watch that 1-second scene and keep a rational, adult mind, don't download this video.

    This video is based on a fanfic I've been working on for a few years now, specifically the latest arc. If you've read the fic, skip down to the Story section.

    I think this vid works best as an advertisement, like a movie promo except it's for a story instead. There are scenes here the average amv-watcher won't understand, just like you don't know why they show a person screaming "I'm burning up" in the Volcano promo unless you know something about the movie. In that context, you don't need to know the fic, or the anime, no more than you do for any promo.

    Additional Anime Used:
    There are more anime used in this than just GW and YYH, but they weren't enough to really list.
    Magic Knight Rayearth 1&2 - brief partial cameo of the 3 girls
    Saiyuki - a hand and a background shot
    Sailor Moon R movie - background and character positioning
    Rurouni Kenshin ova - background and character positioning
    Card Captor Sakura - character positioning

    Still Pics:
    I used a couple official art pics from GW and YYH (most scanned by me from my books), as well as two doujinshi covers from GW.

    Effects:
    There is one transition and a 'fuz' effect native to WMM2 used in this vid. Everything else is frame edits done in Photo Impression. I've left the 'effects' option open, so if you want to yell at me about the 'fuzz,' feel free. I don't think anyone counts frame edits as effects these days.

    Pairings:
    As with the story, some of these are not established and should be taken as 'close friends' only. For the uninformed, a '+' sign means friendship/liking and a 'x' sign means romantic feelings.

    GW - 1x2, 3x4, 6+5, Une + Treize
    YYH - Kurama + Hiei, Kuwabara + Yukina, Jin x Touya
    GW/YYH - Relena + Yukina, Yusuke + 5

    The Story:
    If you've read, are reading, or plan to read the fic this vid is based on, expect some...teasers. I've been promising new characters and a change in pace, that happens in parts 30-40, an arc I've dubbed 'Awakening' - for reasons that will become obvious in a few more parts. This vid will give you an idea of what's coming up, without enough detail to spoil the action. I've also given background information for the first 30 parts (including the scene of Zechs and Yukina in the moonlight, since I'm not much for fanart ^.~ ), and a bonus for the 1x2 fans (since Heero plays such a small role in this part of the fic). I had a lot of fun creating scenes to reflect the story, so I'll be putting pics up once I update my site. Until then, you can find the up-to-date version of this fic on ffnet. I'll put the new url up here after I'm finished.

    The Song:
    Used a lot, including at least once with YYH. I don't care. I can personally guarantee it has never been used for this particular crossover. ;p

    Lyrics:

    "How You Remind Me"

    Never made it as a wise man
    I couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing
    Tired of living like a blind man
    I'm sick of sight without a sense of feeling
    And this is how you remind me
    This is how you remind me
    This is how you remind me
    Of what I really am
    This is how you remind me
    Of what I really am

    It's not like you to say sorry
    I was waiting on a different story
    This time I'm mistaken
    for handing you a heart worth breaking
    and I've been wrong, i've been down,
    been to the bottom of every bottle
    these five words in my head
    scream "are we having fun yet?"

    yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no
    yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no

    it's not like you didn't know that
    I said I love you and I swear I still do
    And it must have been so bad
    Cause living with me must have damn near killed you

    And this is how, you remind me
    Of what I really am
    This is how, you remind me
    Of what I really am

    It's not like you to say sorry
    I was waiting on a different story
    This time I'm mistaken
    for handing you a heart worth breaking
    and I've been wrong, i've been down,
    been to the bottom of every bottle
    these five words in my head
    scream "are we having fun yet?"

    yet, yet, yet, no, no
    yet, yet, yet, no, no
    yet, yet, yet, no, no
    yet, yet, yet, no, no

    Never made it as a wise man
    I couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing
    And this is how you remind me
    This is how you remind me
    This is how you remind me
    Of what i really am
    This is how you remind me
    Of what i really am

    It's not like you to say sorry
    I was waiting on a different story
    This time I'm mistaken
    for handing you a heart worth breaking
    and I've been wrong, i've been down,
    been to the bottom of every bottle
    these five words in my head
    scream "are we having fun yet?"
    yet, yet
    are we having fun yet?
