Heroes FanVid - "Goodbye, my Brother"

Grave Lying


Okay so if you're just a curious nut who had to click the link (just when ppl tell you NOT to push the shiny red button) congratulations, you clicked. Now if you really haven't seen Powerless, you better start running because I will not be held responsible for what you see below.

... still here? ....


... are you sure you've seen it? ....


Okay then. For all who are still with us, this video is in tribute to Nathan Petrelli. I'm not saying he's dead - in fact I believe quite the opposite to be true. But there's plenty of fangirls out there panicking and starting "Save Nathan" campaigns so I'll contribute this vid to that if it will help Adrian's cause any.

The vid itself looks as the sibling love between Nathan and Peter Petrelli. The inspiration for this dropped on me like an anvil after seeing the finale and made sure it wormed it's way to the front of the queue as the most important thing that needed to be done. In this vid you'll see the relationship and close bond between the brothers - how so many times Nathan has lost Peter and had to deal with it, only now to have the coin flipped where this time Peter has lost Nathan and must learn to cope. But essentially this vid is about Nathan, how his brother changed his views on the world, and basically it's giving his younger brother a message of love and reassurance just as he did when he was alive and he still is alive, I'm not living in denial... seriously LOL.

OH MY GOD.

I just, just, JUST finished watching the episodes and this is what I see on my flist. *tries to hide bucketful of tears while clicking link*

I NEED SOME SOLACE ;_____________________________;

OH #@&$(#@) THAT WAS FREAKY!!! LMAO I went to offer you hugz and stuff and then suddenly Nathan started talking out of my computer :| I dunno what happened, but my vid opened up in another tab and I couldn't find where it was. Freaaaaaakkkkkkkkkyyyyyyyyy.

And yes it was so surprising and just very, very sad :( He's gotta stay. And they only said he was "shot" not "dead" so I'm sure he's coming back, plsu he was the most loved character this season, but *sniffles* it's still kinda sad. And they're so keeping with the whole presidents theme still of having someone try to assasinate him!!

*SQUISHES YOU* Meh you get a hug from the boss too *reuses brand new icon*

Haha maybe this is some sort of message - maybe none of us need consolation because Nathan is not gone!! Micah must have sent that message to yout computer!!

I honestly did not expect that! When he started out with "I have the..." and looked at Peter and Matt I thought they were about to demonstrate something spectacular or something and then just so out of the blue the shots rang and for about two whole minutes I was literally sitting there with my mouth hanging open.

Yeah its not like they shot him in the head or anything right? RIGHT? I know, I know just how many people can you heal with Claire's blood before it all gets too gimicky and anticlimatic but this time I RLY RLY RLY don't care! Both her dads desreve to be revived! If HRG came back then so should Nathan dammit!

Awww *pulls you in for a group hug*

Well he's not gone, I'm quite adamanant over that. What I find hilarious though is that it's this year there's such a huge uproar about it, wheras last year where he was supposed to be a sacrifice and totally dead - not a peep. It was all in the wording I tell you ;) Though Milo is a total bastard saying he doesn't know whether Adrian's staying or not LOL but he's in full support for keeping him on the show because it'll be a tragedy if he goes (and c'mon Petrelli love IS the spark that keeps this show rolling). I think they've totally just done that cause Nathan was the most popular character this season - how else do you get ppl talking about the show and bringing ppl back? Cliffhanger killing everyone's favourite character who doesn't have the ability to come back from the dead (but has immortal blood in him and a regenerative daughter who's suddenly the "cure" to everything... gotta be in his DNA somewhere y/y?)

I'm so glad I avoided spoilers though cause I totally didn't see that one coming. I can't even remember what my reaction was, but I knew I wasn't expecting that. I kinda went "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" *pout* Though I do remember him being one of the 4 faces in the preview leading up to that saying "one of these Heroes will die" and I was all "they better not get rid of Nathan or I'll kill them" ... being as we all know the track record I have of my favourites being killed or "disappearing" (though I'm getting good at a few of them coming back from the dead *cough* Peter *cough* Bryce *cough*)

This video ...was absolutely the most perfect way to end this volume of Heroes for me. I'm kinda so anguished and angsty right now but:

- that silent bit in the middle and you using the scene from s1 where Nathan and Peter are flying together was so so heartwrenching for me, I don't know why. It seemed so right to put that scene there.

- And during the "I'm so hollow" bits all the Nathan scenes you used - him punching the glass, him coming up to Peter's house to tell him their dad is dead...I love the way you use the context of the scenes in the actual episodes to give even more weight to the lyrics.

You have been the one
They really have been the one for each other. Between parents who appear to be even more and more deranged in their thoughts with each past generation revelation, between all the times they have almost lost each other but found their way back they have been eah other's support system. Just the thought of one without the other is so unbearable!

The way you bookended the video was perfect. It was as if between the shots were fired and Nathan falls unconscious "dies" both of them are having these vivid flashbacks of their lives y'know? And that last scene seemed so ethereal because of the lighting...like here's one last hug before goodbye.

Loved that quote at the end ♥

LOL mine is so ongoing. I got that down. Got a Nathan fic I just finished which I'll put up as well once I finish going through comments and stuff :D My muse is doing well in my time off *cheers*

- that silent bit in the middle and you using the scene from s1 where Nathan and Peter are flying together was so so heartwrenching for me, I don't know why. It seemed so right to put that scene there.

Yeah, a lot of things were fabulous lead-ups to scenes or lead-ins to certain lyrics. It's like my only job was to make sure I put things in the right meaningful order, and some things I kinda discovered just by accident (I so wanted to use the Adrian Pasdar flying thing where he looks like he's doing the chicken dance but alas there was no room for such humour). And I loved how I could switch from one Nathan hand-grabby scene to another one that leads into Peter's grabby hands (and it was all kind of like "Peter's dreaming of trying to get Nathan back even though those scenes were of Nathan losing hold of someone he loves")

- And during the "I'm so hollow" bits all the Nathan scenes you used

I loved working on that bit, because it was like showcasing all Nathan's lowest points. The moments he feels like he has nothing left. ZOMG the song just came on again (but only the song, not my vid. This is too damn freaky LMAO)

between all the times they have almost lost each other but found their way back

♥ Absolutely perfect the way you phrased that.

It was as if between the shots were fired and Nathan falls unconscious "dies" both of them are having these vivid flashbacks of their lives y'know?

Aww *wholeheartedly agrees* It's everything they (and we) don't want to lose, right?

And that last scene seemed so ethereal because of the lighting...like here's one last hug before goodbye.

Beautiful, you got it. I completely upped the brightness and contrast on that one to give it that otherworldy view. *HUGZ* Man I'm gonna get all weepy again. *misses liek woah*

Jules!!! That was absolutely amazing, I am totally in awe. Ypu always do amazing vids, but this was the perfect match up of lyrics and the scenes.

I got a bit of a shock to be honest, I did heed your warnings, even though I haven't watched the last Heroes eppys yet, but I was curious since the FList (heroes ones) were all weeping over Nathan, so I'd got the gist anyway. Still, this was sooo beautifully done, and I canot stand a lot of James Blunt's stuff, as well!!!

You really are so talented at this, I wish you could fully throw yourself into a media related job (creative one of course), you'd be so good at it.I was just browsing now over your posts and have seen you have done tons more vids, I will have to check them out when I get a chance, but I really really love this one. Well done!!
12th-Dec-2007 10:57 am (UTC)
Hi Sam! What a surprise!! And now I feel guilty for not writing back b4 :$ I'm glad you liked this. I didn't know whereabouts you were up to on the eps. And yes the flist is totally evil because they couldn't keep quiet about it (fortunately I had just finished watching before the first obviously spoilery post went up) and everyone's embarking on a "Save Nathan" campaign, which is kinda funny considering that neither Petrelli had such a huge campaign behind them last year when they were making it blatantly obvious they were going to die (which they didn't because Petrelli is LOVE).

I'm really glad you liked it. And hey, while I'm off on Workers Comp, I am getting paid to stay home and do this (I hope...) LOL So all is good.
12th-Dec-2007 11:46 am (UTC)
fjkhAHLKFH. Oh, my heart! *clutches at it* This is amazing! (Thank you Universe for helping this along! LOL. Err, how's your ankle? :$ )
12th-Dec-2007 11:54 am (UTC)
LOL this song &/or vid keeps randomly starting up on my computer. What is the universe trying to tell me? Honestly? Cause I'm not gonna listen if they tell me he's speaking beyond the grave!!

But back to you *HUGGLES* I'm glad you liked it and that you support the universe tripping me up so that I could stay home & complete it. I thought this would be a good way to get over the grief of what could potentially happen, but damn it's really just making me hungry for more Petrelli. There really was not enough in season 2. :(

Oh yes, my ankle (always the afterthought)... well it's better than yesterday, but my leg is SUPER sore from having to keep holding it up. It's just all achy and I have to remind myself not to put too much weight on it because there's no striking pain to remind me that it's not 100% (except, u know, when I step too hard on it and get a nice reminder)
14th-Dec-2007 05:28 am (UTC)
Oh Jules, that was beautiful! Made me cry, so sad but so sweet, it's perfect! *hugs*
14th-Dec-2007 08:11 am (UTC)
Aww!!!!!!! *HUGZ* Thanks so much. I'm so glad you felt moved by it. My job here is done :D

But as I said... he's not dead (that's my disclaimer, and I'll keep believing that til I see otherwise)
14th-Dec-2007 03:45 pm (UTC)
That was very beautiful. I pray we don't really have to say goodbye. Peter needs his big brother. They've just found each other again.
15th-Dec-2007 05:55 am (UTC)
Thank you :) I'm right there with you, I don't want to be saying goodbye to him. And Peter does need Nathan. We had so few Petrelli brothers scenes this season that I'm just aching for me. It was so touching to see them find each other again that I couldn't bear for it to all go wrong :(
