Blue blue caravan
Winding down to the valley of lights
My true love is a man
Who would hold me for ten thousand nights
In the wild wild wailing of wind
He's a house 'neath a soft yellow moon.
So blue blue caravan
Won't you carry me down to him soon

Blue blue caravan
Won't you drive away all of these tears
For my true love is a man
That I haven't seen in years
He said, "Go where you have to
For I belong to you until my dying day."
So like a fool, blue caravan
I believed him and I walked away.

Oh my blue blue caravan
The highway is my great wall
For my true love is a man
Who never existed at all

Oh he was a beautiful fiction
I invented to keep out the cold
But now, my blue blue caravan
I can feel my heart growing old
Oh my blue blue caravan
I can feel my heart growing old

This was stunning -- incredible song choice, and I love the unhurried pace of the editing, the slow build of it. Glad it was well-received!

Ohhh, gorgeous. It really captured the sadness of Amy's solitude and confusion during the series.

I wish I had something more coherent to say than "my heart my creys SO BEAUTIFUL", but that pretty much summarizes it. ♥

Cue the waterworks. This was gorgeous.

The thing about watching this vid with zero knowledge of canon is it really does make me feel for her - I genuinely feel sad about what she's lost, I just have no idea what that is. So keep thinking things like "I can't figure out why that guy (who I assume is Rory) is dressed as a Roman in some clips and in modern clothes in others, but the answer is probably utterly heartbreaking. ;__;"

Which sort of makes me want to know what the actual story is out of self defence, becuase canon can't possibly be as sad as this vid, right? RIGHT? ;__; PLZ TELL ME AMY GETS LOVE AND HUGS AND SUNSHINE AND PUPPIES.

Absolutely gorgeous and heart wrenching!

That was awesome! It had such a lovely, soft feeling to, and it showcased what I love most about Amy, her sense of wonder. :)

Wow, this is stunning. I love Vienna Teng, but it never occurred to me how very very DW-series-5 this song is. And your vid is excellent.

She does! Eventually! And sort of! But yes, Amy gets her fairytale ending.

Wow, that was gorgeous! It's beautifully crafted (that bit with the still of wee Amelia and all the flashback scenes running through her head!) and wonderfully atmospheric.

Oh my word, there may have been tears when I watched this. Amazingly haunting, and very beautiful.

oh my, this vid ! I'm so sorry that I didn't get to properly hug you like crazy after seeing this cause I was so moved and in awe.
This vid is softly brushing over you (if that makes sense) and feels so poetic and just feels so simple and true. I don't even love Amy and I found this to be so perfect. Your song choice is obviously epic win here and how you used it is fabulous, it just feels like everything amy didn't say but felt the entire time, the fragility in her. I love this so much and couldn't wait to watch it again :D
Definitely my favourite vid I saw this week end, thank you for making it, it's superb ! :)

We spoke about this a little at the con, but to reiterate, I was really taken by the way you wove such a disconcerting sense of off-kilter darkness into the vid and into a vid I was expecting to be more...traditionally joy-through-sorrow. Which of course this is but, as you noted, the song is fundamentally unresolved at the end. Anyway, there's a lovely, subtle, eerie, minimalist sense to the editing that really works well with the song and the story.

Oh wow, the song is so perfect. I've listened to it lots of time and yet I never thought of it before, how perfectly it would fit Doctor Who... ♥
Also, I adore the compilation of Companions and Doctors at the beginning! :)

Beautiful vid! Loved that lingering, gorgeous end. :)
