Video: Olivia/Kara, "Cold War"  
I made this for fandomverse's crossover video challenge.  I think Starbuck and Olivia are surprisingly similar characters, when you get right down to it.

This is really good! And video making is hard work, UGH. I agree, they are similar characters and you did a good job showing this.

Thank you! Yeah, it's surprising how much time it takes to make something so short, LOL.

Two of my all time favorite characters in a video to a song I love? Well hello awesomeness!

The opening shots of them from behind in ponytails with the music build up is gorgeous.

1:24 brilliant choice of shots to go with the lyrics there

The shots of them both in bath robes dealing with their different shit is really emotional.

And cutting to them both shooting with the music change is excellent, I really like that sequence a lot.
As well as all the ones after it. Actually from there to the end of the video is stellar in my opinion.

Aw, thank you! Yeah, when I read the challenge, I just kind of kept it in mind as I was listening to music one day on a walk, and this song came up, and the lyric of "I was made to believe there's something wrong with me" was like, wow. Totally the both of them. But it was really in putting it together where I realized how very similar they are. Kara tends to lash out and Olivia keeps everything locked down, but other than that, they're pretty much the same. Especially the whole "abused by someone you should be able to trust in order to make you stronger" thing.

Your icon! That's one of my all-time favorite shots. I hate that it's not in the episode itself.
