2009 Understanding Meta Vids (I C WHUT I DID THAR)

Vids that exist on a meta level, working in more ways than one, often suggesting a basis beyond the individual fandoms of the source and more about a larger concept and/or fandom itself. Vids that go beyond the narrative of their source, commenting on the nature of that narrative, connecting with outside meanings, or placing the story in a larger cultural context. Paired with panel. VJs: kiki_miserychic & nightchik
