DW - Blank Space - purplefringe & such heights by such-heights

Nice to meet you, where you been?
I could show you incredible things
Magic, madness, heaven, sin
Saw you there and I thought
Oh my God, look at that face
You look like my next mistake
Love's a game, wanna play?

New money, suit and tie
I can read you like a magazine
Ain't it funny, rumors fly
And I know you heard about me
So hey, let's be friends
I'm dying to see how this one ends
Grab your passport and my hand
I can make the bad guys good for a weekend

So it's gonna be forever
Or it's gonna go down in flames
You can tell me when it's over
If the high was worth the pain
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane
'Cause you know I love the players
And you love the game

'Cause we're young and we're reckless
We'll take this way too far
It'll leave you breathless
Or with a nasty scar
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane
But I've got a blank space, baby
And I'll write your name

Cherry lips, crystal skies
I could show you incredible things
Stolen kisses, pretty lies
You're the King, baby, I'm your Queen
Find out what you want
Be that girl for a month
Wait, the worst is yet to come, oh no

Screaming, crying, perfect storms
I can make all the tables turn
Rose garden filled with thorns
Keep you second guessing like
"Oh my God, who is she?"
I get drunk on jealousy
But you'll come back each time you leave
'Cause, darling, I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream

So it's gonna be forever
Or it's gonna go down in flames
You can tell me when it's over
If the high was worth the pain
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane
'Cause you know I love the players
And you love the game

'Cause we're young and we're reckless
We'll take this way too far
It'll leave you breathless
Or with a nasty scar
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane
But I've got a blank space, baby
And I'll write your name

Boys only want love if it's torture
Don't say I didn't say, I didn't warn ya
Boys only want love if it's torture
Don't say I didn't say, I didn't warn ya

So it's gonna be forever
Or it's gonna go down in flames
You can tell me when it's over
If the high was worth the pain
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane
'Cause you know I love the players
And you love the game

'Cause we're young and we're reckless
We'll take this way too far
It'll leave you breathless
Or with a nasty scar
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane
But I've got a blank space, baby
And I'll write your name

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. Ten saying "wife" on the "rumours fly" line! SWORDFIGHT MONTAGE. The entire Missy section, but especially "perfect storm". POSING MONTAGE! Nine's perfectly timed eyeroll! :DDDD

Ah, this is brilliant, and the timing is fantastic. It's so great to see all the Masters used like this, and the little moments you've used to highlight the continuity between them (and the Doctors' shared reactions of distaste/horror/dismay). Wonderful!

I"m here via a vid rec from [personal profile] selenak, and, wow, this is just perfect. I've been looking for good Doctor/Master vids lately, and not finding as many as I'd like, and this absolutely hit the spot. I particularly love how all-inclusive it is. That's a long, long relationship with a lot of history, and I love to see that fact captured in a vid.

I haven't even made it this far in S8 yet, but I love the use of the song. Perfection.

AMAZING. Brilliant job of combining all that footage to create more of a coherent narrative than all those different show runners across 45 years ever intended! Loved all the parallels you found. And Missy's section was just perfect, could have been made for her - I think 'nightmare dressed like a day dream' was my favourite bit but it's all fabulous.

That is fantastic and it managed to do what the show itself hasn't managed: made me interested in actually watching s8. I love the fun song used, the upbeat energy of it, and how nicely the older and newer clips mirror each other in gestures and movement.

Simm is still my favourite Master (I loved the "new money, suit and tie" and the "wife/rumours" clips), but no matter the incarnation, the Master comes across as dramatic and a little mad, fascinating and over-grand, and such a great villian and opposite point to the Doctor.

I think I'll be watching this on repeat for a little while. *g*

OMG I love this SO MUCH. The cuts are so crisp (even with the older footage, which is lovely) and the motion is so fabulous and I laughed aloud so many times and it is just -- awesome.

ETA: also, I want to rewatch and streaming is being annoying so I am downloading, which I almost never do anymore, but this is just too fabulous not to d/l and watch a zillion times. <3

This is amaaaaaazing omg! I keep getting this song stuck in my head and then I think of this vid and then I go watch it again and again and again! I love that you used Classic Who as well as New Who -- it really rounds out the vid. And I also really like the torture section. <3333333

BTW, do you recall which episode the clip at 0:57 is from? That's really cool continuity. :)

This was amazing and epic. I'm going to go watch it again immediately. :D I especially love the cuts from the Ten/Simm don't-you-die-on-me intensity and Three being revived to the Twelve/Gomez kiss (it absolutely is a continuation of all the rest!) and all the bits that show how much of a dramatic ham the Master is. And the tussling to the floor, and the "let me save you!" in multiple incarnations!

Oh, and all the bondage themes, lol. What I'm getting from this is that these two are codependent kinksters with no sense of personal space, going back as far as the Keller Machine. And sometimes they turn into cheetahs. There are a lot of clips in here (especially the stuff with Four and Seven) that I hadn't seen before and I'm completely delighted that they're not just shippy in the scenes I have seen.

Although the clips of Nine and War rolling their eyes might just top the cake. :D :D OMG.

Love it. :D

This is PERFECTION. I am so impressed by the way you worked in classic footage -- you made it move!

Ideal song choice, and the mix of eroticism, snark, and humor is just great.

Ahhhhhhhhhh omg I finally watched it and it's amaziiiiing :D :D :D As you know bob I don't do many boyships but no one can deny doctor/master. This is delightful, such a great way to kick off the album too! :D :D :D <3

(I may go watch it a few more times now. ;D)

I FINALLY watched this, and it is SO GREAT. Lovely cuts and parallels and a lovely bit of literalism with the "boys only want love if it's torture".

If I might criticise, there was a fair bit of talky face at the beginning? It overcame that really well, and I know it's just one of the limitations of Classic Who, but it was distracting. (Note: it's possible I am abnormally opposed to talky face, IDK.)

This is just such a fantastic vid. I've watched it many times now. I've also made subs, so my wife can watch it.

If you're interested. They're a little rough.

FINALLY listened to 1989, so I finally watched this, and it is GLORIOUS. If ever a song was truly perfect for a pairing, this is it :D God, I just love how hilarious it is while also being TOTALLY EARNEST about how fucked up they are for each other. Like, it's ridiculous! But also, daaaaang.

I want you both to know that this vid single-handedly convinced me to watch "Dark Water"/"Death in Heaven", after being hugely disappointed by Moffat's entire tenure on the show, and now I'm happily back in Whofandom. Gomez!Master is DELIGHTFUL, and this entire vid is so perfect. All the lyric matches! Gomez's perfect little twirl on "dressed like a daydream". Man, I forgot how Simm and Tennant were all up in each other (I never forgot how Ainley prowled around each Doctor, and how beautifully sneery Delgado was).

Finally watched this, as someone who hasn't actually seen ANY of the Master episodes of Who (except the one with Derek Jacobi), and even I can tell that the song choice is perfect!

oh man, out of all of this I'm only familiar with Simm!Master, and have stopped watching Doctor Who before the current incarnation, but despite not knowing much of the history, I completely adore this vid. Their dynamic over the years! SO PERFECT. Thank you both so much for making this!

Omg so perfect
