Lions, Aliens & Lambs, Oh My! - Roswell/Twilight (Vid_the_grid #10)  

Music: Bella's Lullaby Remix by Carter Burwell
January 2010
This was an idea that I had when first reading the Twilight books - I kept seeing Roswell! Bedroom windows, I love you but we can't be together, damsel in distress rescues, Isabel changes her name to Rosalie, Romeo and Juliet, scifi bonding situations, etc. So, here's my vid showing some of the ways the two bleed together. ^_^
Voice-over: Are you afraid? Five days ago I died, but then the really amazing thing happened - I came to life. Are you afraid. I'm only afraid of loosing you. I would do anything if it means being with you. This isn't real. This kinds of stuff just doesn't exist. It does in my world. This can never be normal Max. What's so great about normal? What if I'm not the hero? What if I'm the bad guy? You're not. I know what you are. Say it. Say it out loud. You're not... an... alien, I mean... You don't know how long I've waited for you. Are you afriad? No. Who else knows this? No one. So when you healed me you risked all of this getting out, didn't you? Yeah. Why? It was you. I'm only afraid of loosing you - loosing you - loosing you. Whether I die tomorrow or five years from now my destiny is the same - it's you. You are my life now. Say it. Say it out loud - loud - loud. I love you. I love you. Say it. Say it out loud - loud - loud - loud - loud. Say it out loud - loud - loud - loud - loud- loud - loud. Vampire. Wow that's weird to actually say.

That is fantastic. I love the voice overs mixed in with the music. :)

First, thanks so much for recommending me Roswell!! Once I started watching I couldn't stop - I saw 3 seasons in less than 10 days and finished last night! Great show (and it actually has a descent ending - I was afraid of some cliffhanger at the end)!
It has so many similarities to Twilight and you made a good parallel with this vid. Love your choice of scenes from Roswell, and even though I just finished watching I couldn't tell from what ep, or even what season most of them were ;)
Nice job with editing - you did wonders with colours, masks and with joining similar scenes from both stories (the dance, snow...etc)

Hehe - yeah, another Roswell convert :P
I'm so glad you enjoyed it!!! Though I love it myself so much that I can't imagine anyone not loving it once they give it a chance ;) As for the ending, I totally agree. If I remember right though, I think they knew that they were being canceled so they wanted to give an ending they knew the fans would love (thus the 'get up bitch' moment and a wedding ^_^)
I'm so glad you thought the vid turned out ok. It was another one of those vids that I'd been working on so long I felt like I lost track of what I meant to do in it.
