OK I HAVE WATCHED IT NOW

It's BEAUTIFUL

NO REALLY

I kind of can't do anything but scream with delight at its existence though, can I try again tomorrow?!

I do have a lot of feelings about the way you've used such a ...cutesy? song and then it's all about how they throw buildings and wrestle lightning to alleviate their feelings.

Also of course it's Diana's POV and it's LOVELY.

Ughhhh.

Sorry.

More later.

But it's really great.

(Tomorrow I might be embarrassed I hit send on this comment.)

I'M SORRY I ALSO TOOK SO LONG TO REPLY BUT I HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER NOW <3!!

I'm SO GLAD you did do that! I DEFINITELY love the song. I think of it as the OT3 song so I'm glad the Trinity get to have it too. <3

And YES, agree, I love that triads get to have a sweet, honest love song, because that type of song is overwhelmingly reserved for monogamy, when the sentiment is universal.

But yes, EXACTLY!!

Seriously, I love this OT3 SO MUCH and I'm so glad you and chaila have this problem cuz it produces stuff like this!!

(I do, I DO like it so much. I'm SO GLAD it exists. :D :D <3)

chaila: Diana SWORDFIGHTING in a BALLGOWN. (wonder woman - trinity)
From: [personal profile] chaila
I am now devoid of all self-respect, but in exchange I am full of feelings and joy, so I consider it a more than fair exchange. <3

LOOK I DID WHOLE SENTENCE WITHOUT CAPSLOCK.

I am so glad you emailed me this already, so I could do all my embarrassing freaking out to you in private. I LOVE IT ALL. I love that it's all about the big, amazing things they do, and little things like Kal's capacity for showing actual affection to his adopted baby heroes, and Diana loving EVERYONE , and Batman riding a motorcycle away from his feelings, and respect and admiration and looooonging. Superheroes in love, I ACCEPT IT.

Parts I am never over:

THE EDGE IN YOUR AFFECTION BROKE MY SKIN, Diana totally picking up Kal while he holds up a plane (I FEEL YOU, DIANA), sad Batman in the water when Diana and Kal's boots land behind him THAT IS ALL MY TRINITY FEELINGS IN ONE CLIP, Kal's hero shot at 1:58 BLESS HIM; lulz Batman's apply candy is BROODING AT A WINDOW ilu, allll the swordfighting Diana and being a badass and wiping away blood, and alllll the flying syncing up. Also everything else, for it is a perfectly sincere and PAINFULLY ACCURATE meditation on my OT3 problem and it is just what I would have wanted, had I ever even dared to hope for such a thing. :D

THANK YOU YOU'RE THE BEST WORST BEST. I am now going to go watch it so many more times that all my friends will be even more ashamed of me than they are already. <33333

I don't even know why this OT3 means I can handle Batman but it does and that more than anything else convinces me it's too powerful to fight.

ATHENA HELP ME I HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT THIS.

I think this is probably super obvious and only retreading what you already know, but I think the reason I usually hate Batman isn't actually because he's all manpainy and falsely noble in ways that I think are actually selfish, it's because the narratives he's usually in AGREE WITH HIM that those traits are strengths of the character, instead of kind of sad character flaws resulting from trauma and the way he chooses to respond to situations. Like I wouldn't actually hate most of these manpainy dudes that are everywhere, if they weren't the main hero of every story, if we didn't have to spend time in a narrative that props them up and praises them more than it should. So I haaaaaaate Batman in his own comic, or Batman with the Batfamily, when he's the central hero, and the writers are a little too in love with him and think the sad things about him are a strength. HIS PARENTS ARE DEEEEAD, so he has to be ALOOOONE and the NIIIIIIGHT because of his great strength and resolve and commitment, isn't he self-sacrificing and heroic. Ugh. [Which isn't to say there aren't Batman stories that complicate him, I'm sure there are! But the sort of synthesized cultural understanding of him is one I find deeply obnoxious and selfish]

Whereas with the Trinity, he's necessarily among equals. In the good stories, Batman reacts like Batman, Superman reacts like Superman, and Wonder Woman reacts like Wonder Woman, and the result is an interesting tension among their world views and perspectives and characters, and the narrative doesn't constantly privilege any over the others. When he's with Kal and Diana, who can do all the things he can do and MORE, his Darkness and coldness don't get held up as a superhero strength or necessity or nobility; it's just Bruce, unable to be anything but Bruce. When he rides a motorcycle away from his feelings, I can smile affectionately, because the existence of Kal and Diana show he doesn't have to be that way to be heroic, he's just that way because of himself and his experiences. So when he's playing the third point on this triad, with conflicts and comparisons, pushing and pulling back and forth with both of them, who are more than equal to pushing and pulling back, the things that result can be actual interesting character studies and emotional depths, and FEEEEEEEELINGS, instead of me having to constantly be angry at the lack of critique of Batman the Noble.

tl;dr I still hate Batman when the narrative privileges his POV and character traits and constantly props him up, but when he's among equals, apparently I can find him to be an interesting character, at least in connection to other characters I like more.

Aw, I don't know this ship much, but this was so wonderfully earnestly shippy and sincere and awesome. I really enjoyed it!

From: [personal profile] garrideb
I love OT3 vids, and I love Wonder Woman and Superman (and okay, Batman's pretty cool too) so this was really awesome even though I'd not considered them as an OT3 before. I was surprised to recognize some of the clips in the vid from a comic book I read ten years ago called Batman/Superman: Supergirl, so I guess they made an animated version of it?!? I'll have to look into that!

I loved your song and clip choice! The beginning with the origin stories worked really well, and I love the bit where WW and Supes descend into the frame where Batman is standing by his lonesome. I imagine that sums up the OT3 pretty well.

YOU WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO GIVE ME OT3 FEELS. what the fuck. ok FIRST -- FIRST: THEY ARE ALL BABIES. AND THEN I HAD FEELS ABOUT THEM BEING BABIES ALONE IN THE WORLD. AND THEN THEY HAD EACH OTHER...i never had a chance...BECAUSE THEY WERE ALL LIKE, BABIES AND NEW AND ALONE AND CONFUSED AND STUFF. BUT NOW THEY AREN'T! BECAUSE THEY ALL LOVE EACH OTHER AND FEEL UNDERSTOOD AND LOVED. *sigh*

Seriously though, this vid is not only an OT3 pimp vid, but it's like a pimp vid wrapped in a giant shippy snuggle because it's also just so sweeeeeeet. The complicated logic that sometimes accompanies ship vids (which I regularly enjoy) just doesn't exist here because you make it so plain and simple. It's like you just strip it so bare and make it so obvious that of course they're an OT3 and of course they're each others most important people. Of course their quiet vulnerable selves feel at home together and not just because of all of the saving the world stuff but because of all of their origin feelings and tbh, the constant queerness of being special and different.

I *adore* that this is in Diana's POV. TBH I've always felt like the OT3 hinges on Bruce, but this vid really highlights what Diana and Kal get in it. I mean, Diana and Kal are functional enough people to have a healthy relationship with several dozen people *pauses to think of all of those delightful ships*... but, Bruce is the guy who responds to his parents murders with *dressing up like a bat and being broody and alone in the world and pretending to be a functional adult* and his whole ego sort of depends on this idea of his necessary emotional isolation. And in this way, I sort of felt like he needed Diana and Kal more than they ever needed him?

But THIS VID! I love how you highlight Diana's delight in connecting with people. It makes it ring that much truer that she would be attracted to someone who struggles to connect or share emotional intimacy -- not in that fucked up because he's unavailable way -- but because Diana is always so generous of herself and curious and compassionate and just like pure love and she can *see him* in a way that most other people can't.

Anyhow, I feel like this vid really answers a lot of my lingering questions on the how-does-this-OT3-really-work sorta stuff and also just IT'S A GIANT SNUGGLE OF FEELINGS.

I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO MENTION THAT I FOREVER ENJOY FURTHER INSTALLMENTS IN ONE OF MY FAVE RPF FRIENDSHIPS: BECCATORIA & CHAILA. <3 <3 <#
