The recent Harsh Light of Day review at [livejournal.com profile] fantas_magoria (yes, it has started up again, yay!) sparked a good discussion in the comments about Spike and Harmony's relationship and how nasty Spike was to Harmony.

This reminded me of the first fanvid I ever made: a Spike/Harmony vid, set to Shut Up by (of course) The Stranglers. It premiered on BuffyTube on 17 August 2010, in other words, exactly 6 years ago. So I thought I'd repost it here on LJ today, by way of anniversary celebration. Enjoy!

That was your first fanvid ever? Wow, you really started with a bang!

It's a great vid that went straight to my faves. I loved especially the Harmony blabbing to the guitar (how does one call these brief guitar things??? No idea, not even in German right now...) and the ending. The scenes are spot on to the music (yay, The Stranglers :) )

Love it!

I would've never believed that it's your first vid ever, it's so well-done! And a perfect song choice for Spike, as always.

I had never seen that vid before, but I really like it! I have really mixed feelings about Spike and Harmony's relationship, and this perfectly encapsulated it.

So much fun! True, she was annoying and he was mean to her, but she deserved most of it. I feel slightly bad for her getting her feelings hurt, but hello, vampire! She can take it.

Thanks for sharing it again.

How interesting (in a good way) that your first vid was focused on Spike and Harmony! It's really well done, and the end is perfect. Happy anniversary!

Congrats on the anniversary!

I like the video a lot, and also wouldn't believe it was your first. Also, yay for the music!

And wow, I never thought about it, but considering Harmony was kind of a stand in for Buffy, for Spike, his treatment of her looks much more disturbing. Also, for how that's how he treats women he doesn't respect. It suddenly puts his 'hearts and flowers' persona into serious question.

I always loved the line they gave her in Angel - that basically it was wrong for Spike to use her for sex, make him feel like she was his, when he knew she wasn't.

Cheers for making me think :-)

You're right. And it's sad that he treated a robot better than her. But then, his fantasy was that is was Buffy, I suppose.

I liked her, too. Especially on Angel. And yeah, becoming a vampire did improve her, lol.

Spike really didn't show his best side in that relationship. :c It's kinda painful to watch. I love how you've fit clips to the instrumental parts!

Still loving this - liked seeing it again. She annoyed him but he wasn't above using her sexually. It could not end well, as he was the only vampire capable of love, and not for her.

I try to picture her with a soul, and go Nahhhh.
