Please watch in HD!

This was made for The Battles Contest Round 1 which was all about Character Studies. I had to make a Male Character Study :) I knew I wanted to vid Pacey but oh my god I didn't think it'd be this difficult. I'm not going to lie I absolutely hate this, I can't even describe how much I do, but I cannot make this any better and so I'm giving up and uploading it anyway. I'm probably going to regret that tomorrow when I see it and realise how horrible it is, or maybe I just won't watch it. I never want to see it again haha! This has taken me forever, and yes it doesn't look like it haha but I struggled so much. I had also originally chosen a different song which would have fit perfectly for what I wanted to do but nope I couldn't vid it. I had to give up and so switched to an instrumental and just well this happened. Not so good really.

But let me explain why I've done what I've done. I know this doesn't show the entire of Pacey's character, but hopefully that doesn't mean I'm immediately kicked out of this contest! But I think that for Pacey his underlying trait is his insecurities. He doesn't think he's good enough to achieve anything because of what people tell him, and this follows him right the way through to the series finale. It's always there and so that's what I wanted to show at the beginning, how all these people telling him that he's worthless, a failure, a loser, make him actually believe that's true. Then with the second half I wanted to show how despite all of that, despite how he feels inside, he always tries his best to make sure the people around him feel good, that they achieve their full potential. The second half is even worse than the first somehow but I didn't really know what I was doing! I had to include that scene with that teacher though at the end telling him he's not an idiot, or a punch line because I think it's a beautiful scene. Finally, someone is telling him the words he's always wanted and needed to hear so yeah I just had to include it. Oh and I chose compassion at the end because I think that sums up who Pacey truly is quite well :D

Honestly I think Pacey is one of the best written characters because they don't exaggerate too much how everyone seems to expect the worst of him, and yet it's always there building up until those moments where he can't take it, like with the Prom scene between him and Joey. I don't know I just think he's written really well, I love him! Plus I mean just going through all those quotes about people telling him he's a failure, just shows how strong his character is. Despite it all, he never ever gave up. I think that's a very good reason to love a character! Which is another reason why I wish this video was better. Someone please make an amazing Pacey tribute so I can watch it!!

This is dedicated to Karolina! :D

This was always meant to be your birthday present which is now very very very late! And you deserve so much better, I'm sorry! If I can make a better video for you hun I will I promise. But since I still hadn't dedicated anything to you for your birthday and as this was originally going to be it I thought I'd dedicate it to you anyway :D I know you like character studies and you like Dawson's Creek so that's why I went with this idea :D You are an amazing friend hun, I'm so happy that I met you on here, it's always so lovely to talk with you. And of course you are crazy talented, I love everything you edit!! :D Thank you for being such an amazing person hun!

If you aren't subscribed to Karolina already please do so. She's amazing!!

This description is getting very long, sorry! I'm a rambler oopsie! I don't actually expect anyone to like this so I don't really know what to write here except that hopefully if i'm lucky I might actually get my inspiration back soon and make something better. I seriously can't vid right now, the last video I made that I liked was gosh over a month ago now probably. Vidding why are you so difficult? :(

In other news, I am shockingly still writing my first ever wattpad story thing whatever you call them! It's really bad, just like this video but if you want to read something bad and tell me if you like it or not then here's the link :D

Oh and I'll be making a tagged video soon as I've now been tagged twice. How exciting, yay for excited face!

Love you guys!
