VID: Shut Up And Dance (Star Wars: The Force Awakens)

Shut Up And Dance
by [personal profile] such_heights
fandom: Star Wars: The Force Awakens
music: Walk The Moon
content notes: none
summary: This woman is my destiny. Rey/Finn/Poe
download: 37MB zipped .avi
notes: Nothing like an imminent festivids deadline to make me procrastinate with other vid projects! Made with cam footage, I'd love to remaster when a DVD is available but no promises. Many thanks to [personal profile] purplefringe and [personal profile] happydork for beta comments. (also on tumblr)



"Oh don't you dare look back.
Just keep your eyes on me."
I said, "You're holding back,"
She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
This woman is my destiny
She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
Shut up and dance with me."

We were victims of the night,
The chemical, physical, kryptonite
Helpless to the bass and the fading light
Oh, we were bound to get together,
Bound to get together.

She took my arm,
I don't know how it happened.
We took the floor and she said,

"Oh, don't you dare look back.
Just keep your eyes on me."
I said, "You're holding back,"
She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
This woman is my destiny
She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
Shut up and dance with me."

A backless dress and some beat up sneaks,
My discothèque, Juliet, teenage dream.
I felt it in my chest as she looked at me.
I knew we were bound to be together,
Bound to be together

She took my arm,
I don't know how it happened.
We took the floor and she said,

"Oh, don't you dare look back.
Just keep your eyes on me."
I said, "You're holding back,"
She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
This woman is my destiny
She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
Shut up and dance with me."

Oh, come on girl!

Deep in her eyes,
I think I see the future.
I realize this is my last chance.

She took my arm,
I don't know how it happened.
We took the floor and she said,

"Oh, don't you dare look back.
Just keep your eyes on me."
I said, "You're holding back,"
She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
This woman is my destiny
She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
Shut up and dance!"

"Don't you dare look back.
Just keep your eyes on me."
I said, "You're holding back, "
She said, "Shut up and dance with me!"
This woman is my destiny
She said, "Ooh-ooh-hoo,
Shut up and dance with me."

Ooh-ooh-hoo, shut up and dance with me

This is the best. I got chills.

"A backless dress and some beat up sneaks," "she took my arm" and its repetitions, and "I think I see the future" -- such wonderful juxtapositions.

I did not cry during the movie, and I teared up at this. And the way you use the 2:19-2:42 bridge? interlude? to tell a story about how Rey got to the point where she could make that Crowning Moment of Awesome happen is breathtaking.

NO TOO MUCH ADORABLE I REFUSE. I'M BROKEN. YOU BROKE ME, IT'S YOUR FAULT.

(also i had been reading some really interesting meta about how characters in this movie fakes it til they make it - and how there's some really interesting commentary about dressing up in the clothes of what you want to be - and then suddenly i was watching this, with baby Finn lighting up his girlfriend's lightsaber, wearing his boyfriend's jacket, trying to face down Kylo, and i felt the feelings. i felt all of them.)

Dying to see this, but it looks like YouTube has blocked or region-locked it; is there another way?
