VID: Suzanne (Doctor Who, Doctor/TARDIS)

Suzanne
edited by [personal profile] such_heights
fandom: Doctor Who (multi-era)
ship: Doctor/TARDIS
music: Suzanne - Leonard Cohen
content notes: none
summary: "It's always you and her, isn't it? Long after the rest of us have gone. The boy and his box, off to see the universe."
notes: Spoilers through 6x04. I said I'd make [livejournal.com profile] purplefringe a vid for her birthday, and this is the song and idea she gave me. This one took a village! Thanks to everyone who suggested Classic Who clips, and particular thanks to [personal profile] fizzyblogic, [personal profile] kaydeefalls, [personal profile] lizbee, [personal profile] pocketmouse and [personal profile] rhivolution for their feedback.

lyrics:

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by and you can spend the night beside her
And you know that she's half crazy
But that's why you want to be there
And she feeds you tea and oranges
That come all the way from China

And just when you mean to tell her
That you have no love to give her
Then she gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer
That you've always been her lover

And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind.

And Jesus was a sailor
When he walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching
From his lonely wooden tower
And when he knew for certain
Only drowning men could see him
He said "All men will be sailors then
Until the sea shall free them"

But he himself was broken
Long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human
He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone

And you want to travel with him
And you want to travel blind
And you think maybe you'll trust him
For he's touched your perfect body with his mind.

Now Suzanne takes your hand
And she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags and feathers
From Salvation Army counters
And the sun pours down like honey
On our lady of the harbour
And she shows you where to look
Among the garbage and the flowers

There are heroes in the seaweed
There are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love
And they will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror

And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that you can trust her
For she's touched your perfect body with her mind.

OH AMY.

Absolutely beautiful. I've just watched the mid-season finale, and this feels like the perfect tribute, just as The Doctor's Wife was a gorgeous tribute. Thank you. ♥

You keep making these wonderful, wonderful vids which always, always explain to me how much I love this show about a madman with a box. Or is it now canonically a box with a madman. Oh, Suzanne.

I love the scenes of Eleven dancing round the TARDIS, his excitement at seeing her new incarnation, and the ripples of light flowing so beautifully round the TARDIS towards the end.

It's sad but also very, very happy-making.

Thank you.

I'm so watched this out of order, but I like to think I got more out of it after knowing what was being flailed about being the scenes. :)

I love how it's such an epic romance between the two of them. It spans so much time, literally and in a fictional sense that it's just beautiful. There is a great deal of very artistic twirling and many many moments where yes, you just have to look at his face.

I have always loved this song, and always felt like I never *quite* understood it...

Now I understand it.

Thank you.
