additional notes:

[personal profile] purplefringe: So, this vid kind of came into existence as a result of [personal profile] such_heights' Feelings about the Ponds and how awesome they are, and my Thoughts, which mostly went along the lines of "omg so much meta!!" Inspired by some particularly beautiful and insightful essays by [livejournal.com profile] elisi and [livejournal.com profile] goldenmoonrose, we decided to join forces to make a vid about the fairytale adventure that is Doctor Who, a journey of self-discovery down the rabbit hole, through the looking glass, into the wardrobe - a quest for identity throughout all of time and space. We also wanted to incorporate some of the most interesting symbolism from the show. And their faces. All their faces.

Wow. This is just one big, bold, beautiful build to an amazing crescendo with an ending that's filled with stars. Shivery good. And it left me with such a sense of wonder. \o/

Thank you. ♥

Thank you :-) As [personal profile] such_heights said, the sense of wonder was more or less our ultimate aim. I'm so glad you got it.
