OMG. OMG. This is SO AMAZING--the song choice is just. INSPIRED. And GORGEOUS. And the vid is so eerie, and elegant, and cold, and scary. How do you keep doing this week after week?? :D

Oooh, wow! I really like this one -- I'm used to a different version of this song (Imitosis, off Armchair Apocrypha), so knowing this dissonance between this version and that one (which is so much more upbeat, and the additional lyrics in that one) gave it an extra bonus layer of creepy.

Oh my god, this is amazing. I also am only familiar with Imitosis, and this version is so dissonant and creepy and perfect -- honestly, I really found this episode lacking, but you've redeemed it and found some truth, which is really all one can ask for. Dang.

Wonderful vid! Thanks so much.
I love the underlying creepy-angst factor in this. :)

HAVE I EVER TOLD YOU


HOW MUCH I LOVE YOUR BRAIN? (A LOT.)

I have all these thoughts about this vid and how it interacts with the ep and the series and about how it stirs up various ideas for me about the Doctor.

Something like:
The Doctor burns cold. He moves through lives like a light, touching everything and nothing, there and gone.

"Not always," he says in stark counterpoint to, "Just this once, everyone lives."

"Do you know what's dangerous about you?" Rory says, and Amy smiles, says, "You really are an alien, aren't you?"

They come back, sometimes: Sarah Jane Smith and her unrelenting curiosity; Rose Tyler ripping through the walls of reality like a kid confronting drywall with a sledgehammer; Jack and his desperation, his fixed point in time (and what, the Doctor wonders in a distant part of himself, would happen if a fixed, immovable fact of the universe like Jack fell through one of the cracks, confronted that initial explosion).

Sometimes.

(Sometimes they're just gone.)

"I am perfectly capable of admitting when I'm wrong," he tells Romana; to Susan, he says, "One day I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back."

("You don't always tell me the truth," Amy says.)

The universe is vast and beautiful; it always surprises him. Time is complicated. Time can be rewritten.

"Maybe when you're older," River says, and, "A very good man. The best I've ever known," and, "Oh, Doctor. Aren't we all?"

(Martha answers, "We could die any minute, but all the same—it's beautiful.")

"Don't you ever change?" Donna asks; says like a plea, "I was going to be with you. Forever."

(Donna Noble is the most important person in all of creation; Martha walks the Earth for a year to save the world; everything, all of time, hinges on Amelia Pond.)

Maybe—maybe his companions, they're the light, candles and fireworks, bright sparks and flashes across the night sky, distant pinpricks of beckoning life in a vast universe. Ace leaves, and Adric dies, and Amy has a white dress she plans to wear tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow. She takes the keys and reaches a frost-covered hand across the frozen Tardis floor to clutch Rory's fingers.

"I grew up," Amy says; the Doctor replies, "Don't worry. I'll soon fix that."

("The life out there, it dazzles," the Doctor explains. "It blinds you to the things that are important.")

The Doctor burns cold, but he doesn't burn alone.

Also, um, I hope you don't mind that I randomly dropped by and remixed your vid in fic form? I only thought about it after I posted to AO3 and everything, at which point I realized not everyone is as ":D!" as I am about that sort of fandom interaction.

From: [personal profile] laurashapiro


That was simply gorgeous. Breathtaking. I adore how you've used the music here -- and the tone of it is perfect for the vid's message. ::shiver::

How do you do it? Each of these is better than the last!

From: [personal profile] regicidaldwarf


AGH this vid leaves me stunned. I've watched it multiple times now and I still think my favorite moment is that first line of "with our machinations and our palindromes" with the shots of the Timelord and the Dreamlord, as their own metaphorical palindrome. Your choice of song each week continues to be inspired, I'm amazed that you manage to pull the perfect choice each week.

I have no idea why I haven't commented on this yet, but I wanted to say I love how fantastically creepy this is. I have no idea how you keep coming up with these awesome vids every week, but I'm mightily impressed!

Eerie, haunting and perfect -- AND ANDREW BIRD. Mind officially blown now.

If you ever vid anything to "Why" (especially one of the live versions), I may explode.

OMG!!!


I love this- so much!!! This vid is just so perfect! I love the song and the creepiness factor! :)

Hey, I forget how I got linked to this video, but I did a while ago, and I keep coming back to it, because it is fantastic! The song isn't one I'd have thought of for this episode, but it makes so much sense with the scenes that you've picked out, and the overall effect is haunting. Definitely one of my favorite fanvids. :)
