Howl from such heights on Vimeo.



If you could only see the beast you've made of me
I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free
Screaming in the dark, I howl when we're apart
Drag my teeth across your chest to taste your beating heart

My fingers claw your skin, try to tear my way in
You are the moon that breaks the night for which I have to howl
My fingers claw your skin, try to tear my way in
You are the moon that breaks the night for which I have to

Howl, howl
Howl, howl

Now there's no holding back, I'm making to attack
My blood is singing with your voice, I want to pour it out
The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallowed ground

Like some child possessed, the beast howls in my veins
I want to find you, tear out all of your tenderness

And howl, howl
Howl, howl

Be careful of the curse that falls on young lovers
Starts so soft and sweet and turns them to hunters

Hunters, hunters, hunters
Hunters, hunters, hunters

The fabric of your flesh, pure as a wedding dress
Until I wrap myself inside your arms I cannot rest
The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallowed ground

And howl

Be careful of the curse that falls on young lovers
Starts so soft and sweet and turns them to hunters

A man who's pure of heart and says his prayers by night
May still become a wolf when the autumn moon is bright

If you could only see the beast you've made of me
I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free
The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallowed ground

Oh, my goodness, that is fierce, and raw, and a bit heartbreaking.

Ack. That hurt a lot (River holding Amy back, like a mother, oh gosh). It hurts even more once the point is made, of how they have all suffered consequences. *rewatches*

That is completely amazing. Talk about recontextualizing! So much shifts with the end of "A Good Man," and this is such a gorgeous way to show the changes by rearranging things -- yet it's still tied together; nothing's changed, everything's changed.

Loved bits with River and Amy with guns (and Rory with swords)... River's always been the sharp scary one, but you've drawn out how they've all been forged by their association with the Doctor, they all have that same fierceness at their cores.

Gorgeous, and dear god how did you get this together so FAST? (Must watch again....!)

... On rewatching, right at the beginning, with the closing Tardis doors and then Amy opening her suitcase; was that deliberately meant to evoke opening Pandora's box?

And the structure is even more striking on rewatching. Loved that the "young lovers' curse" line applies to both Amy/Rory and River/the Doctor. (Seriously, that bit just made me wibble, because River/the Doctor is such a tragic relationship...)

Also, d'you mind if I rec this? It's utterly fantastic.

Awesome, awesome, awesome! I mean, the reveal on 6.07 was of a kind to make one revisit the entire season, and this is a brilliant revision. I want them to triumph so badly, and this vid is like a war chant: PONDS!!!!

This is such a beautiful vid! I'm still a few eps behind but I don't care, I wanted to see what you'd done here. The cutting in this is graceful, you bring out so much beauty and emotion between teh clips and the song. My heart feels both twisted and full of love for them, so I think you've done well indeed!

Brilliant! I particularly like the 3-way gun-toting BAMFness at the end.

I tried to go to streaming with subtitles and the site gave me an error saying I needed permission to see the vid. :(

Wow. Great song, clips, editing, the works. Y'all did an excellent job!

Uhm. Wow. This is so. good. I wasn't expecting for this vid to be everything I wanted to say about these characters and their journeys. Seriously. It was just amazing.

First of all, Florence is so well-suited for this epic-heartbreak kind of stories so fabulous choice of song! Secondly, dude, I just. The structure of it is brilliant. I love the clip choice in the beginning, it's so great how you guys use the clips people don't usually use from that scene and cast the Doctor in this weird, even slightly menacing light. And then how you begin and end with Amy is my favourite thing. Rory's section is fabulous too, especially the "tear out all your tenderness" verse where you show all the awful stuff and then end with him not looking at the explosion (he was gonna be cool!)

Then, dude, River! ♥ I love how her section begins slowly and mysteriously, just like how the Melody/River thing was told slowly on the show. The "fabric of your flesh" part is really creepy and awesome and fitting. I also think the two most powerful matching-the-editing-to-the-music moments are in her section (the regeneration shot and especially her death, it was matched so perfectly to what the song does musically in those points (does that make sense? I'm not sure. ;p)) and don't even get me started on the River-and-Amy-through-the-episodes section. Feelings, all of the.

Okay so, I think this is long enough! ;p Basically, what I mean to say is that it was awesome, it had great editing and there's already a friend of mine who wants to watch the show because of it!

(Obviously, I downloaded to keep!)

A friend linked me to this video the other day and I want you to know that I have watched it at least 3 times in rapid succession. I think you did a really lovely job with this--I was on the fence with the whole River backstory reveal, but this vid actually makes me excited for what's to come.

(FYI, I especially love how you decided to have the shot of the wee little girl regenerating followed by a shot of grown up River kicking ass. Well played, madame. Well played.)

Oh, this just works SO well. I had goosebumps by the time it got to River's part. D/L so I can watch a gazillion times, thank you!

You knocked my socks so far off my feet that I can't find where they went to hide. This is the kind of vid that makes me want to take up vidding--thank you so much for sharing it!

(PONDS!)

I think I've already reviewed this before. But I was sent over here again by a rec from Elisi to watch it post the finale and I'm glad I did. It really is one of those fanvids that just holds up so well to rewatching. And watching it with the new canon in my head was great! The Ponds just rock so hard.

OMG, this is spectacular. This blows me away. The way you encapsulate and evoke the epic quality of each of these relationships! And of course the clip choice and the editing are both top-notch, but that's honestly transparent for me -- mostly what hit me was the emotional impact of the vid. Holy wow.
