New Vid: Doctor Who - Matches to Paper Dolls  

Song: Matches to Paper Dolls - Dessa
Fandom: Doctor Who
Spoilers: All seasons to date, mostly just the River Song episodes.
Length: 3:36
Summary: Our book won't close River Song and the Doctor is like playing with fire, she destroyed time just to keep him alive.
Links: avi | youtube | mediafire

Notes: Thank you astartexx my dear for the song, who knew there would be strong crossover music for Doctor Who and the X-Files. What would I do without you? Even though you have no idea what this vid was about except for my rambling about the plot during our chats.
Emotion? Me?: bitchybitchy

Well, the vid certainly looked beautiful and I only started to get confused once you tried to explain everything about River Song and the Doctor. So I hold on to my initial sentiment: Time travel - it fucks up your life. Heh.

Thanks for watching though. It will just take me a minute to see if there is something wrong with the zip file.

The vid is super awesome! Wow. The pacing, the song, the clips, the River/Doctor dynamic you've captured so beautifully - very, very well done!!

I've had this post open in a tab for... weeks, I think, trying to work out something intelligent to say, but I'm not sure I can manage it. I've lost count of how often I've rewatched this vid, and I only keep loving it more... The song is beautifully perfect (although possibly a touch to fatalistic - yet they're undoubtedly helpless when it comes to each other. Neither would ever take the safe option), and oh, your editing is amazing.

Especially love this part:

We've been lovers and strangers and friends who get angry
Made mistakes and amends and brief moments of magic
We forgive and forget and give in to attraction
This whole thing depends on amnesia and madness

The clips are just so perfect that I'm reduced to helpless flailing.

Oh and the juxtaposition in 0:34 of the Doctor inside the Tessalecta and the Doctor against the doors in AGMGTW? Ridiculously brilliant.

Don't worry, I'm usually just happy to get:I like it. Thought getting something longer always makes me even happier. So thank you.

LOL. fatalistic... It went against the show in that way but the clips kept telling me it would work.

You know that was the lyric set that made me want to do the vid. Amnesia and Madness I thought was totally them.

I think i was making fun of the show a bit on that one.

"I still get chills..." That's how I feel about this vid. It is awesome.
