Oh, hell yes River Song gets a James Bond music vid! and what a perfect choice! I really enjoyed this, especially the chase scene at the end - very meta, as we're all, and the Doctor too, chasing after River and trying to find out more about her!

Cheers! Yeah, I like how she spends the whole story escaping. Like Houdini only hot. Interdimensional woman of mystery.

Always distant. Always silent.

River/Alex is such a Bond girl XD

She goes around in a ball gown lasering messages into metal surfaces. It had to be done.

HELL YEAHHHH. ;D Being up at 3 precludes a more sensible comment but, :DDDDDD.

River Song is an inherent challenge (to us, to the Doctor, to the world) wrapped up in a BAMF. Which is why we love her.

And the only problem with doing a River vid is you keep remembering BAMF moments that are missing from it. Is it even possible to contain her BAMF in a finite time-span?

This is AWESOME. Utterly perfect for River, omg. A bad ass song for the most bad ass woman of win ever. I LOVE THIS. So much win.

Thanks! She is even more badass than Shirley Manson. Shirley Manson has a better name though.

I love this! River is so Bond. ;)
big_n_happy at 2010-07-13 04:51 (UTC) (Link)
She is like if Bond was not a tool of imperialism and could travel in time. So better, basically.

Gorgeous! The song is perfect for River's larger-than-life personality, and you illustrate it beautifully.
big_n_happy at 2010-07-13 04:49 (UTC) (Link)
Cheers. She is so epically epic.

I liked her before, but over editing this vid I came to love her with a fiery passion.

That was pretty darn awesome.
big_n_happy at 2010-07-13 04:47 (UTC) (Link)
Cheers! Is that icon gankable? My current River icons are not hardcore enough.
jonesandashes at 2010-07-13 03:40 (UTC) (Link)
This is fantastic! I love the song choice. And I also loved the way you weaved in clips from our first encounter with River - it's our past and her future and the complicated AWESOME of that really came through here. <333
big_n_happy at 2010-07-13 04:47 (UTC) (Link)
Yeah I started it as just a S4 vid then got halfway through and was like, "this story is incomplete." I also love the similar imagery for Eleven & River's self-sacrifice.

That was absolutely stunning. I am nominating you to direct the River Song spinoff series that had better be announced next year. :D

Lol, I'd be happy to edit it.
*hint hint, TPTB, I'd even pay for tickets*

The world is not enough
But it is such a perfect place to start... My Love

The perfection of this song for River (and River/Doctor) is nothing short of astonishing. I love how she dances ahead of him, teasing, inviting, and how they compliment each other - both in deviousness and in strength (love/sacrifice).

The Dreamlord reflection at 'If we can't have it all, then nobody will' was just chilling, and so - in its own way - was 'Together we can take the world apart... My Love' with the angels, and Donna...

Brilliant use of dream states/hallucinations/virtual realities btw, particularly in the light of how this season has played with the concepts of reality/stories.

So yeah, I loved it! Also I am thrilled to have the perfect icon... :)

Cheers for the meta! Feel obliged to respond in kind.

I love how she dances ahead of him, teasing, inviting, and how they compliment each other

Yeah, watching all her stories together it's so much fun that she's always one step ahead, even when she's actually behind in the timeline. I kind of want to see their first encounter for River, because that's probably the only point where she'd know less than the audience, but it's so much fun having someone around who knows more about the situation than the Doctor. And I love the sheer pleasure they take in that fact at the conclusion of Flesh and Stone.

The Dreamlord reflection at 'If we can't have it all, then nobody will' was just chilling, and so - in its own way - was 'Together we can take the world apart... My Love' with the angels, and Donna...

Yeah, it's probably my friendliest & most romantic Whovid but even then I couldn't resist a bit of lefty meta. For me that starts with people like us over shots of monarchs and Tories. I love the line together we can take the world apart, for a lot of reasons.

And yeah, I'm quite proud of the climactic fantasy sequence on the grass. River's rejection of the world as it is, and her drive to construct something anew. She rules basically, that's where the meta always ends up at this point...

I've gotta admit: when I saw the title of the song, my immediate thoughts were of Bond and it wasn't helped when I saw the clips from the Weeping Angels episodes!
big_n_happy at 2010-07-14 01:21 (UTC) (Link)
Totally. The opening of The Time of Angels is so Bond.

That is SO AWESOME. I have such love for the original song, and it's splendidly applicable. <3

eta: also, I have a craving for River and Nasreen meeting and saving the world. Possibly Liz X is along for the ride.

Cheers, yeah Garbage is love & Bond themes in general are pretty epic.

S5 did pretty well with the hardcore women. I want to meet Liz X post-abdication.
