The Winchesters - Brotherly Bonds and Sibling Rivalries 

As we are now staring down the barrel at the end of Season 6, I think we are all getting more nervous at what is waiting for us in the last few. I am pretty sure that none of the remaining episodes are going to be easy to watch and that this team we love so much is going to once again take great pleasure in not only ripping out our hearts, but then jumping up and down on them too. Especially as the mad evil genius wrote the last one himself.

Thinking about this, I decided to put together a collection of clips dedicated to celebrating our much loved brothers and their wonderful, loving, troubled relationship. There are clips here showing all aspects of this, even how bad it can get! But I have tried to concentrate on the positive ones, as I am guessing that`s what we will need at the moment. 
 
The first clip uses a lot of images from Swan Song but flashes back to all 5 seasons. I think the editing on this is really stunning and I find it really moving. The vidder is kpassion04 and they use the Ryan Star song `Losing Your Memory` 


 
After that I need to be cheered up. This is an old one but one of my favourites, as it induces the most amazing warm fuzzy feelings! It celebrates The Winchester Family and it has the most beautiful images combined with the beautiful voice of Alison Krauss. The song is from the film  `Dumbo`, it is made by J2thepowerOf3, this is `Baby Mine` 


 
This video also uses clips from all seasons and shows just about every aspect of the Winchesters relationship, the good times and the bad. The vidder is GinevraGemini she has used a great track by The Fray called `Never Say Never' but the video is very aptly entitled `Don`t let me go` 


 
This is the one that for me has to be here. The vidder is NascentProselyte, I love the description given `The bond that Sam and Dean have has been forged over a lifetime of pain. The bond has been repeatedly tested but never broken.`  This song is now on practically every compilation CD I have, and, as I am so obsessed and such a wuss, I could not hear it for a few weeks after swan Song without becoming all teary. The song is by Westlife- `No More Heroes`


 
We can go for a paddle in the shallow end here,  this video is called `Sometimes They Smile`,  living  up to its name, it features lots of smiling Winchesters. I think we need this video as these smiles can sometimes be rarer than hen`s teeth. It was made by lewiskate using Colbie Caillat`s song `Bubbly` 


 
To be honest the quality of the images in this video by Bravery is not brilliant, but I really wanted to include it because the song is so perfect. I am sure when you watch it, you will understand why.  It is by Missy Higgins and is called `The Special Two` 


 
The editing on this video by The Horizon26 is fantastic. They have used a track which has been utilised on some other clips, `Keep Breathing` and let`s face it, this is what they somehow manage to do. It`s by Ingrid Michaelson, I first heard her music on another Supernatural You Tube clip and was so impressed it lead me to  investigate her work further. (Check out her song `Morning Lullabies, It`s beautiful). 


 
There is a LOT of angst in this clip, but it`s very beautiful! By Winchesterinmysoul it features a really different version of the Coldplay track `The Scientist` by All Angels


 
I don`t think anyone will be able to stop themselves from smiling at this one. It`s another warm and fuzzy one, and so Damn Cute! Made by Chucklovaaa with the Bruno Mars track, this is `Count on me`


 
I think this video is a great example of the brotherly bond, it uses clips mostly from `Hunted`, it is by MadMidgetTwins02 and features a song which seems to sum everything up perfectly, `Everything` by Lifehouse  


 
This is another video from ash4897, once again the editing is fantastic and the choice of song perfect. This is definitely a positive, happy one, and it demonstrates wonderfully what I maintain again is the heart of the show for me. It`s ABC and `The Look Of Love`
 

 
Here we come to the `Cheese` portion. They don`t come much cheesier, but I don`t care! There are again loads of clips using this song.  It is `Because You Loved Me` but, it is NOT Celine Dion, since, as we know, because it has been well established around here, She Sucks! This video uses a version by Michael Ball, It was made by Amtrakblue


 
I really like this character study of both brothers, and I can`t resist any song which references Spinal Tap. The vidder is felixfelicius using `Strip Me` by Natasha Bedingfield 


 
I know I said I was going to concentrate on the positives here and try to feature cheerful videos but I just had to put this one in! It`s one of my favourites, it uses clips solely from Swan Song and a wonderful song called `Fall Into you` by David Hodges featuring Amy Lee, the vidder  is OTHsmallvillefan  


 
This last one is a new find from this week. It made me laugh and demonstrates our boys resilience so well, made by eyestoowide it uses `Tubthumping`  by Chumbawamba and is called `Never gonna keep me down`


 
I have tried to keep these positive, the really sad ones can wait for another collection when we are all feeling stronger! Hope there`s some here that you enjoyed.  I would love to see anyone else`s recommendations. 

Just as a little extra, here is a vidlet from ash, it was made as a celebration of 100 episodes, but guess we can celebrate Season 7 with it too.  Plus it is just what we need at the end of a season.

Julie, if you were here I’d hug and kiss you. But you’re not, so I won’t!

I will thank you most sincerely though cos there are awesome (and there are so many of them!)

Ooooh, the bookmark button is getting a good workout tonight!

Hi Tim,
No I am not there, but I am like my boy I do `Wuv Hugz` so I will accept a virtual one :-)
Glad you enjoyed these! Ju

What a wonderful collection you have here.
I loved them all!
The Sad ones... :cry:
The Funny ones... :D
The Cheesy ones... :oops: :-*
Thanks so much for putting this together.
Cheers! :lol:

Thanks for the comment Karen,
I did try to not put too many sad ones here at the moment! But some were just tempting Ju

Oh, Julie, this is great! I can't go into these videos this morning (need to eat breakfast and then rush to work),but I already know some of the vids, and - yes - they are deep, sad, funny... you name it.

I'm looking forward to going through them all as soon as possible.

Thank you ever so much for putting this together! Blessed be, sweet girl! Love, Jas
Julie
# Julie 2011-05-12 11:35
Jas , I guess there are quite a few here that you may recognise as you have been bombarded with most of them at some point. Hope you make time to sit and indulge fully soon.
Wallow and enjoy Love Ju

Well that was a nice lunch break. I could only watch 7 of them and they were verry good. Thank you for putting them together
Julie

Thank you for your comment Junkerin,
I must admit that would be my idea of a nice lunch break too. :-)
I hope you also enjoy the rest of them ! Ju

Thanks, Julie! I love looking at fan videos. I have two all-time favorites that I never tire of: "With What We Had (promise) by Egg0721 and "go.back.to.sle ep" by TikiTyler9. The first is all about Sam and Dean's relationship; while the other is just scary as hell. The editing and music for both are just perfection.
Julie
# Julie 2011-05-13 06:25
Hello Kayo,
Thanks for your comment, you have picked 2 great videos there. Did you know both are already on the site? `With what we had` was recommended By karen brandy after my first collection, `A Picturesque wander through You Tube` if you check it out you`ll find it in the comments. The TikiTyler9 one is in the video gallery, you are right it is a very disturbing one. That song, in different forms has been used a few times on videos it lends itself to being used here. This is another version by Sunnseanicarts using images from LFTH, the vidder says it`s their first attempt at an SPN video, one hell of a debut!

Thanks again Ju

Love Egg's video as well. Been waiting to see if they would do another one. I'm also fond of some of Loki's work, especially her Dean POV vid "We Carry No Arms" and her brother's vid "Upward Over the Mountain."

# Kayo 2011-05-15 23:21
I didn't know that, thanks! I tend to use WFB for news/spoilers; I should look around more. :-)

There are too many videos about their brotherly bond, and they are often so beautiful and moving.

But for the sake of the Disney SPN video collection, I'll suggest this one:

youtu.be/Vgq438nb-h0(How can I embed the videos in my messages?)

It's only from Dean's POV, but I think it sums up very well what Dean feels.

BTW, theres a Springsteen song, "Blood Brothers", that I don't understand why none ever thought to make a SPN video on...
Julie
# Julie 2011-05-16 06:17
Bryhild!
This is driving me insane, I can`t access it!
I have a list of Disney ones ready to compile a collection and wonder if this is on there? I have checked a few but they don`t seem to have the same code. What is the clip called? I will put it on for you. If you look at the relpy to Dany above that`s how you put the clips here.
You are right about the Springsteen song. How many songs do you hear and think `That would make a great clip`? I must admit I got one of my long held wishes last week, another Disney one for Dean, actually a certain Peggy Lee song , can you guess which one? ;-)
Thanks Ju
Brynhild
# Brynhild 2011-05-16 08:17
Very strange, I can watch it. Maybe it's blocked in USA? In fact, I can't even embed the video, either by the video code, nor by the "youtube" tool here. :-?

Anyway, the video is called "You'll Be In My Heart" (from "Tarzan") and the vidder is Kiraynn (but there are quite a lot of SPN videos on this song).
Julie
# Julie 2011-05-16 08:36
You are correct Brynhild, there are so many clips using this song but this one is lovey

I am in the Uk, it seems to work fine here!
Thanks again Ju

I found this one recently and loved it. The song is actually from a Christian band. It's well done:

Linda, thank you, this video is just stunning. Maybe I am hypersenstive this week in the final countdown, but it reduced me to tears, it was so beautiful, I was not familiar with the song either but that was perfect too.
You mentioned in your earlier comment Lokis videos, I really think I could assemble a whole collection just of her work, you mention `We carry no arms`, if you check out the first collection I put together, that was the very first one I included, I just love it, your other recommendation was really good too. She uploaded a new clip last week which is so beautiful. It`s a `Sam` clip but as I am in the throes of putting together a collection of Sam clips I amd saving it for this!
Thanks so much, got any more like this?

Hi Julie! The other one I like is actually by the same vidder. It's really beautiful, Matt Kearney song, of course.
[youtube][/youtube]

And I tried to embed again, but if it doesn't work, here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/user/xEternallyDazzled#p/u/16/_NJkN_w8Z9Y.

I am addicted to fan vids. I'm actually putting together a course for the spring which uses fan vids, fan fiction, and fan art as ways of creating texts. It's a digital media course. I'll be using SPN, Buffy, X-Files, Doctor Who, etc. as my baseline texts.
Julie
# Julie 2011-05-18 07:29
You`re right Linda, that one`s very good too!
I have seen this song used a few times for SPN clips and it works very well. I wasn`t familiar with Matt Kearney until I heard `All I need` on a really moving SPN clip which unfortunately is no longer on You Tube. There are more clips use his tracks that are also well worth checking out.
That course sounds really interesting! Hope it`s a great success.
I don`t think there is anything wrong with being addicted to fan vids. My iPod is full of them ;-) Ju

Actually I think we should be thanking you for putting together such a beautiful video :-)
I just love it! Ju
