Vid Title: Love is the Plan the Plan is Death (Sons and Daughters)
Vidder: [personal profile] futuransky
Fandom: Battlestar Galactica
Summary: A downloadable history.
Reccer's Comments: Battlestar Galactica at its best often dealt with the question of blurring lines between human and Cylon, but this vid reminds us that Cylons are not human, they are something different, and they are coming to swallow humanity. As [personal profile] futuransky says in her essay about this vid and why she hearts the Cylons: "Violence is what the Cylon collective does. If the plan is love it is always also death." This vid, especially given the perfect song choice, portrays the Cylons as a young race, trying and erring, even sweetly optimistic about their plans to lovingly, violently make your children obsolete (irony!). This is their history, their perspective, and the vid skillfully merges their naive, even innocent, optimism with the horrific parts of their plan and the horrifying things done to them in turn, to create this sweet, creepy, tragic, horrifying story about their growing pains.
