VID: Another Girl, Another Planet (Classic Doctor Who, Ace, for festivids)

[community profile] festivids reveals, whee! Thank you so much to [livejournal.com profile] jackiekjono for my wonderful Bridesmaids vid.

I made a Classic Who vid for [livejournal.com profile] suburbannoir and had the BEST time, omg. AAAACE! I didn't actually offer Classic Who because hello there, big intimidating source I only know patches off, but I couldn't resist the request once I saw it. Ace! <3 I got to go back and watch some serials I hadn't seen before*, which was super fun, and generally had a delightful time squeeing over her face.

*I couldn't make it through The Happiness Patrol, though, I have to admit. I got to the end of the first part and couldn't continue because I was laughing too hard and also feeling really quite traumatised.

Another Girl, Another Planet
fandom: Doctor Who (1963)
character: Ace McShane
music: Another Girl, Another Planet - The Only Ones

lyrics:

I always flirt with death
I could kill, but I don't care about it
I can face your threats and
Stand up straight and tall and shout about it

I think I'm on another world with you, with you
I'm on another planet with you, with you

You get under my skin
I don't find it irritating
You always play to win, but
I don't need rehabilitating

I think I'm on another world with you, with you
I'm on another planet with you, with you

Another girl, another planet
Another girl, another planet

Space travel's in my blood
There ain't nothing I can do about it
Long journeys wear me out
But I know I can't live without it, oh no

I think I'm on another world with you, with you
I'm on another planet with you, with you

Another girl is loving you now
Another planet is holding you down
Another planet

I'm just beginning to delve into Classic Who, so I can't appreciate this vid as properly as someone who knows all of the back canon, but this is totally charming! <3

Awwww, yay for this vid! Um, I just realised that I never commented on it on the FV post? Probably because I was watching so many in a row and lost track of what I'd commented on. But I really love it, all the gosh-darned ACENESS of it, and I'm thrilled to be able to download it and watch it approx. 300 more times. Ace!

Aww I have heard tell of the awesomeness of Ace beating up Daleks with baseball bats and carrying explosives around, but it is pretty adorable to actually see it. :)

(And wait, how did you magically make it appear normally on reading lists?!?! Are you some sort of wizard?)

I missed this somehow, so I am immensely glad to see it now. The ACEness of it all, the worlds, the girls--so many girlfriends!--the nose-poke of affection--I am bouncing in my chair and beaming.

Loved it so much. I'm not sure I posted over there so I shall here. Ace is such a terrific character and she's so expressive and I really enjoyed her relationship with the Doctor and with all her friends. And explosives, right?

Aaaaaaaace! This is all things glorious. I've only dipped my toes into classic Who, but I've seen more than enough to adore Ace and to recognize that this video captures her spirit very well.

[profile] suburbannoir is my housemate, and she came running into my room on Festivid Day saying, "LIZ, I GOT AN ACE VID!"

So it got the House o'Squid thumbs up.

AHAHAHAHA, I recced your own vid to you. That is sort of amazing. Well, it was true anyway, it *was* a good year for Classic Who. Thanks in part to you :D

In conclusion? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE

AHHHH ADORABLE. You are giving me all the Ace feels, and now I really want to watch another serial, which is inconvenient, because I am currently engaged in a truly terrifying week of midterms. This is probably why I should spend my lunch break eating and/or doing math homework rather than interneting, haha....

Oh, well, I can always fangirl Ace next week over Thanksgiving break. :D
