Crack_Van Rec 13: VID REC: NCIS - How To Save A Life

Why this vid kicks ass:

After my shock rec of yesterday, we return to something more 'usual for Nikki' for vid rec day.

Caz is one of the many multi-talented NCIS fen; she writes, makes wallpapers and other graphics and songvids. The quality of this video isn't the best (in Caz's own words ' YouTube has murdered it) and yet actually the 'murdering' rather that detracting from the video has in many ways enhanced the subject matter and adds to the poignancy of it.

Gibbs/Ducky fen are often saying that so much of the relationship we see is shown to us in looks, in the lack of personal space (the beginning of S4 aside), the touches and the overall interaction - but all that can be seen as the deep, close friendship we all (Gibbs/Ducky and non-Gibbs/Ducky fen alike) see and know they have. This video looks at that and how that was threatened at the end of S3 and the beginning of S4.

As with all of Caz's videos the choice of video shot and the lyrics tie in perfectly and captivate from beginning to end. It's moving, poignant and it works so very well.

And even if you aren't a Gibbs/Ducky fan, this video can be enjoyed as a deep, close friendship video - because all it consists of is what we see on the screen week in week out.
