"Alone" is a The Professionals vid by Mary S Van Deusen and Kandy Fong. It is a slash vid with the pairing of Bodie/Doyle. It was originally made in 1992 and remastered in September, 2005.

It is a constructed reality vid. In other words, the vid tells a story that goes beyond, or is completely separate from, what actually happened in canon.

Some vids straddle the line. The Professionals vids Heartbreaker, by Deejay, and "Alone," by Mary Van Deusen, both show a poor pitiful Bodie brutalized by his cruel womanizing partner Doyle; "Heartbreaker" plays it for laughs, "Alone" tells the same story straight. They include no digital tricks (they're both VCR vids)-- and the story they tell is not that different from other slash vids-- but the way the story is told, and the relationship that is drawn, is just over the top enough that they're usually considered constructed reality as well.

Reactions/Reviews

1995

We also watched a little more of the Virgule 1 tape. MVD has another stunner on there: Alone. Probably the best *serious* 'Bodie wants to tell Doyle he cares, finally chances it, and Doyle is appalled and leaves' vid EVER. I literally had tears in my eyes the first time I saw it. [1]
AMEN! WHile I can't say that I had tears in my eyes when I saw it, it is definitely one of those vids that keeps my eyes glued to the screen no matter how many times I watch it. (Right up there with "Nights in White Satin" and "Orinoco Flow"...some others too, but those come to mind rapidly at Midnight. :) [2]
