Lyrics
I am nothing without pretend

I know my thoughts

Can't live with them

I am nothing without a man

I know my faults

But I can't hide them



I still keep my baby teeth

In a bedside table with my jewelry

You still sleep in the bed with me

My jewelry and my baby teeth



I don't need another friend

When most of them I can barely keep up with them

Perfectly able to hold my own hand

But I still can't kiss my own neck



I wanted to give you everything

But I still stand in awe of superficial things

I wanted to love you like my mother's mother's mother did



Civilian

Oh god, this is heartwrenching and beautiful. I love your focus on the color blue, and everything it means.

I was ultimately so underwhelmed by the series even though I loved the imagery and the acting and at heart even the story...your vid brings forth all the great stuff without whatever slowed everything down so much. Wonderful! Thank you so much!!!

From: [personal profile] no_detective
THIS. I just spent 5 minutes trying to figure out why I didn't remember the show itself as being this sweepingly, powerfully engaging.... and it's because it wasn't, somehow, despite all there was to love about it.

Oh my god, your editing is INCREDIBLE. Just, the sequence with things breaking - wow. I feel like I need to catch my breath after watching this (and then watch it again immediately).

I wanted to enjoy this miniseries more than I actually did, though I stuck with it. As I suspected, your vid is much more engaging and captures all the best things in it. This is wonderfully edited and very striking, and gives much more movement to what was a often seemed like a still life of a story.

This really distills down and concentrates all the emotion and mystery and grief and connection. The editing is tight and the pacing is so good. The frantic nature of the music gets reflected in the narrative and clip choices so wonderfully at 2:35 in such an fantastic way, wow.

Oh, wow. This is beautiful. It's so intense and raw and powerful - as other people have said, it's the distilled version of what I really wanted the show to be. I love the focus on all the touching - the hugs and hands and everything - which crystallised the theme of searching for a connection. A human connection, or a clue, or a purpose in an increasingly frightening world. And I loved the way you built it up to a crescendo around 2:40, on that guitar solo, when everything came crashing down.

People have said this before me, but you made a vid of what I wanted this show to be. Thank you so much for distilling it out of the source, I've watched it several times already and it moves me and gives me goosebumps every time. You did a wonderful job capturing the suspense and the grief and desperation. And the pacing is just perfect.

That I didn't know the source made no difference, because you communicated a mini-series worth of plot in less than four minutes.

I really like the build in this, the way it escalates so perfectly in sync with the music and uses the imagery (and prettiness) of the source. Especially the step up in 1:18, the little breather with Scottie later ("I wanted to give you everything"), and the whole final part from 2:34 on.

Wow this is exceptionally beautiful and well done! Even without knowing the source, you pulled me into the story and sucked me into the emotion of the relationship. I really loved how you used imagery and how you built up the vid with the music change that brought so much more energy and tension to the vid. Definitely one of my favorite festivids this year, I love it!
