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 [ profile] elisi and [ 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.

Oh, my gosh. My heart. You know, I so often get bogged down under the weight of how this show is executed and written and all that, but this vid is everything I need to keep in mind when I do. It's the look of wonder on everyone's faces and yes yes yes, the fairytale of it at its core that will always keep me coming back.

Thank you so much for making this. I have the feeling I'll be revisiting it frequently.

Oh my, thank *you* for such a lovely comment! The wonder and the fairytale at the core, as [personal profile] such_heights said, is precisely what we were trying to find. This show = <3
