Moonlight Vid: You Spin Me

Fandom, Character: Moonlight, Mick St. John and Beth
Summary: Mick has his little infatuation with Beth completely under control.
Song: "You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)", by the Dope
Length: 2:49
Rated: R for blatant heterosexuality and canonical creepy vampire pedophiliac stalkeriness.
The Show: Did anyone even see 'Moonlight' before it was cancelled? Mick St. John is a vampire living as a PI in LA. (Déjà vu, anyone?) He has a Thing for Beth, and has since he rescued her from another vampire at the tender age of five. I'm serious. And this was on network TV. Apparently, Beth's into that kind of thing, and just wants him to get over his commitment issues.
Vidder's Notes: Thanks to my beta, jarrow, who showed me how to make this vid pop. If being called 'baby' at the start pisses you off, you're in the right mood to watch this vid.
Released: In the 2009 Vividcon "Club Vivid" dance party.
Feedback: I'd love some, including concrit. If public concrit makes you uncomfortable, email me at keerawa@yahoo.com.

Download the 19 MB DivX avi from my website or watch the streaming version.

Happy birthday, keerawa!

As your wish is my command, let me tell you this: Your vid intrigued me so much, I finally gave up resistance and bought the DVDs.

You summarized their twisted and complicated relationship perfectly. I especially like, how you pointed out the pedophiliac undertones("... I set my sights on you, And no one else will do..."), his inability to let her go ("...I don't wanna be your friend now baby, but I wanna move in just a little bit closer...") as well as her not just being a damsel in distress.

What makes me smile every time is the parallel you draw to Angel at the beginning. All this lurking in the dark, very macho/emo.

Oh, that's delightful feedback, thank you, podfic_lover! 'Moonlight' was flawed, but I really did enjoy it. Their relationship is ... pretty twisted, actually. But Beth is a strong enough character for it not to bother me.

Gosh, you see a parallel to Angel here, when a vampire with a conscience works as PI in LA? *scratches head*
