[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 goodness! I'm not even sure I am capable of writing right now...

This vid was like... EVERYTHING.

River as the Storyteller (of course! &hearts), and all the children, and Amy and then just all the metaphors and fairytales, the boxes and the masks and the magical worlds and the love stories and the stars and the magic (and omg my chess pieces in there I nearly fainted!) and... EVERYTHING.

*waves hands helplessly*

I'm just going to go away and re-watch it over and over and over again and drown in the gorgeousness and the beauty of this show. ♥ ♥ ♥

THE CHESS PIECE. As [personal profile] such_heights will tell you, that particular image caused us much angst, trying to get it right. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it, as your writing helped inspire it!
