Vid: As Time Goes By (Hello Stranger)
Creator: Double Dutchess
Setting: Comic seasons 8-11
Rating: other (a couple of sexy images, but nothing explicit)
Comics art: Georges Jeanty, Cliff Richards, Megan Levens, Rebekah Isaacs

So, my offering for this round is a vid. Not a regular one, but a comics based one. Technically, it is a slide show, but I tried to turn it into something more than that. And for those of you who haven’t kept up with the comics: yes, when Spike shows up in S8 he has a space ship…

If you’re in one of the 4 countries where the video is blocked, you can also watch it on Vimeo (hopefully it isn’t blocked there).

Note on the song: only after I got the idea of using “Hello Stranger” by Barbara Lewis, I found out that this song has recently become popular (again) because apparently it has been used in the film Moonlight, which I haven’t seen. I still decided to stick with it because I couldn’t think of any better song for my vid. If it doesn’t seem like a very original choice, that’s just too bad.

Note on the comics art: besides removing the text balloons, I made additional edits to some of the images, specifically those of Megan Levens. I just don’t like how she draws Spike most of the time. (Her Buffy is OK though.)

Extra credits:
I stole the helicopter sound from Goodnight Saigon.
The comic scans I used came from buffythecomicslayer and Buffyverse Brasil.
