*evil laughter*

I've been saying for awhile now that there's going to be a heavy cost to a major character in this story.

Now I know what it is. I've even set it up, all unaware of what I was doing at the time.

Poor, poor, poor not!Harry. Honey, you should know better than to say "I'm going to ask her to marry me" in a story like this.

My brain is a strange and scary place.

In vidding news, I got my clips captured in a proper format last night before bed. Now that I know what I'm doing, it takes a lot less time--at least, to find the clips I want. Actually saving them in a format with actual data takes a little longer. So today I'm going to play with them in WMM and see if I can't turn this thing into something coherent.

It's been raining pretty non-stop since last night. We've had hail, twice. Whee?

Scale is back to being my bitch. 124.4 this morning. Going to be a salad day today--let's see if I can break below the magic 123.6 tomorrow...

OMG. Poor Harry. This is...really getting to me. The vid is coming together really well, but day-um.

Also, I realize I'm brand new to this, but even I can tell how much Windows Movie Maker sucks. It hasn't crashed on me (yet--I understand it has a tendency to do that), but having to go back to the beginning Every. Single. Time because it won't synch is time-consuming and awkward.

I'm also finding out how much sheer and utter chance has to do with how the shots line up with the music. Because I've had some stuff come out perfect through no effort of my own. Which is very very cool.

But poor Harry. Gaaaaaah. I may have to take a break from this for a little while, because, yeah.

I shall blame my wonky hormones for the incipient tears. *nods firmly*

Vid is done!


Now I need to snuggle poor Harry like whoa. I'm uploading it to YouTube, but the file turned out huge, so it's talking awhile.

I have no idea how to compress it and still keep in in .avi format. Anyone? Because, seriously, a four-minute songvid shouldn't be 789 megs. Yes, you read that right.

Okay. Now I need to ruin not!Harry's day. Yeah, he's having a bad one too. But at least he didn't wake up dead, which he fully expected to do.
