I bring you... vid recs! Here are 4 brilliant vids you need to watch - all of them set to RAP. Yes, you heard me, R-A-P.

BtVS/AtS: Origin Stories by [ profile] giandujakiss
Song: "Coffee" by Aesop Rock feat. John Darnielle
Summary: It's Nikki Wood's fucking coat.
Why it's awesome: Because Spike's Nikki Wood's leather coat is really bloody problematic. And yet, I didn't see it until I watched this vid. Because while fangirls always loved Spike in that coat, it really is the ultimate sign of his violent, evil, soulless past. As [ profile] thuviaptarth so eloquently puts it: "And Spike goes out of the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer like he came in: wearing Nikki Wood's fucking coat.
He might as well be wearing her flayed skin."

Supernatural: A Charming Man by [ profile] giandujakiss
Song: The Wondersmith and His Sons by Astronautalis
Summary: Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Castiel, vague Dean/Castiel
Why it's awesome: I am pretty sure this vid is my absolute favourite vid... ever. Ever, ever. Part of it is the pacing, part of it is the absolutely stunning narrative behind the vid, and a whole bunch of it is the brilliant that is [ profile] giandujakiss. And then there is the not-so-subtle Dean/Cas subplot within it - oh, and there's the fact that the song literally describes the Supernatural cast to a T. Friggin' brilliant.

Hawaii Five-0: Are we real? by [ profile] wistful_fever
Song: Are we real? by South Park Mexican
Summary: "I don't want to lose you, like I've lost so many." Steve/Danny
Why it's awesome: Fabella manages to take the hot, gay mess that is Hawaii Five-0 and turn it into deep, meaningful, epically tragic brillaliance. This song makes me want to cry... over Steve, for christ's sake. Oh, and then there is his manly pinning over Danny and Gracie to consider... it's just genius.

Game of Thrones: Mayday by [ profile] meddow
Song: Mayday!!! by Flobots
Summary: The way that it is is not how it's gonna be. (The Starks)
Why it's awesome: First of all, it takes real guts to put epic fantasy to rap music. It really shouldn't work, but my God, does it ever in this vid. Mayday! is the perfect Stark family video. [ profile] meddow manages to convey all that terribly wonderful Stark nobility, along with all the epic angst that comes with it, in just a few short minutes. Very very impressive.
