RH-themed video links
ETA: I have the SOPA-wielding fuckers to thank for the tragic death of Megaupload and the fact that the links below do not work. Should there be any improvement, I'll happily delete this notice.
Links to everything I compiled and uploaded on the subject, for the patient, curious, and bandwidth-unchallenged among you:
- a long 'movie' of Guy & Marian using most of their s1-2 scenes, with a tweaked happy ending
- a full clip of Guy and Meg scenes
- a simple musical clip, again of Guy and Meg (Kiss from a Rose)
- and a season 3 fake movie about Guy and... every other guy ;) that I just had to call Farewell My Concubine
Be warned, these suckers are big.
Disclaimer: I do not own any part of the show or the characters, I only borrowed it so I could drool over Sir Guy.
1. Guy and Marian: 4-hour ‘movie’
The streaming files open with RealPlayer as they are; the DVD-version parts, once downloaded, need to be joined together into the two mpeg movie halves using hjsplit (http://hjsplit.en.softonic.com/) and can then be burned on two disks– if you like it in the first place.
Streaming-quality RealMedia version (two complete files)
RealPlayer Guy and Marian Part 1: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=TH0QZIY3
RealPlayer Guy and Marian Part 2: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=BL79XSZ3
DVD-quality mpeg version (13 parts for 1st half, 14 parts for 2nd)
Note: I ended up tweaking ‘Guy and Marian’ Part I since I uploaded it way back in Feb, and the new RealPlayer part I version is the ‘tweaked’ one, but the mpeg fullscreen version of Part I is the original one. Sorry about that, cannot reload all 13 mpeg segments so this was the best I could do (anyway, FYI the biggest change I made was to add Guy and Vasey’s discussion in 113 where Guy learns about the royal impostor and gets mad – do not know how I managed to miss that one originally.) FWIW; will try to keep an eye on the Megaupload account in the future to see that the links are still live.
2. Guy and Meg: a 18-minute clip from 309 that has only the story in question plus a bit of Isabella vs Thornton (the weird ‘beginning’ name comes from the way it ties into my Guy/Meg fic). No fancy editing here, just a compilation of the ‘relevant’ parts.

3. a clip set to Kiss from a Rose, and featuring, once more, Guy and Meg, ‘my’ canon couple. It is heavily denial-fuelled insomuch as I refuse to admit that Meg is anything but alive. It is also very simple, as I never made one of these before (so no comparing me with the masters among us!) My only real excuse is that my subjects have all of 8 ½ minutes together in the series (not counting the scene on the scaffold before they try to escape), with 90% of that time spent (a) in jail and (b) seated, and a good deal of the time spent bickering, so finding good snippets for a romantic song was tricky. Have done my best…

4. Farewell My Concubine: a 1.5-hour canon-bashing tricked-out edit of 301-302 + 305-308 + 310-311, complete with fake plot and dripping with slash, that I compiled as a way to counteract season 3’s gloom and doom. The title gives you an idea of how serious and profound it is ;) Suffice it to say that that of the four male contenders for the ‘concubine’ role, Vasey is arguably the only one I did not portray as flagrantly bisexual. You have been warned.
