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, the FEELINGS here! The wonder and joy and love, the closeness of family-you-made and family-by-blood and the weirdness when they intersect, the courage it takes to step out into the unknown and the relief when you come back home.

The music is beyond perfect for this; it just keeps building and building. I felt like I couldn't breathe until the end, there was so much beauty to absorb.

This is amazing. I have happy tears in my eyes from watching this.
