Vid Title: There There
Vidder: Luminosity
Fandom: Angel the Series
Summary: Illyria totally disrupted Wesley.
Reccer's Comments: Okay, so I am reccing a vid that is over a decade old at this point. I recently reheard the song There There (The Boney King of Nowhere) by Radiohead, and remembered this vid and how amazing it is.

I wasn't even particularly invested in Angel the series at this point, and especially not Wesley or Fred, but this video gave me many feelings I didn't even know I had. Lum does a great juxtaposition of Wesley, struggling to deal with the spectre of Fred and the horror of her body being inhabited by someone else with Illyria, god-like but lost and trying to find her way in the new world she's found herself into. The song is haunting and dreamy, and Lum's subtle effects and cuts underscore the melancholy well. Years on, Luminosity is still just one of my favorite vidders ever.
