amberfocus: (Eureka--Jo Lupo--Beautiful)
I went down the rabbit hole. The Labyrinth Jareth/Sarah fanvid rabbit hole. Lost about 6 hours to it over two days. I forgot there is a reason why I don't watch Labyrinth fanvids. They are such a time suck. But this one was so good, I had to put it here so I can find it again.



And this one:

amberfocus: (Drop Dead Diva--Jane)
2 swear words if you watch it in front of kids.

amberfocus: (Believe--Hands)
A very interesting musical story thing. I really love this sort of alternative to live TV. It deals with depression, bullying, mental health, parental death, and parental abandonment. But it is really good. My favorite part is when all 5 kids are sitting around the table having dinner and singing about how hard it all is to have been abandoned by their dad after their mom died. Especially the youngest.

amberfocus: (Sad Ten)
Oh, look, it is actually Tuesday and I am posting this on the proper day. Go me. This is more of a general Doctor vid, Nine, Ten, and Eleven, with all of the companions. It basically is one of the saddest things I've seen though. It just makes me want to hug the poor man. He really has had some horrible things happen to him. Of course half of them are brought on by his own poor choices. The vid is by Liisakee.

amberfocus: (Ten and Rose Cartoon Hug)
Yes, I know it is Thursday, but I found this vid by xMemoryLanex3 several weeks ago and I keep forgetting to actually post it on a Tuesday. This one really reminds me of how bittersweet the relationship was between the Doctor and Rose, both with Nine and Ten. This one doesn't just make me sad, it has moments of light as well, but predominantly it makes me weepy, so it qualifies. And I really, really love this song.

amberfocus: (Rose and Ten2--Blue suit Black dress)
So I was just saying how songs don't really inspire me when it comes to writing, but once in a rare while a song will just grab me and make me think it would be so perfect for a fic. This one makes me think of a slightly angsty Ten2 and Rose. And I can see them both frequenting bars, trying to ease the pain of so many lost things with alcohol.



I particularly like these lines for them:

The potential you'll be,
That you'll never see (Rose thinking it about Ten2, how he'll never see that he is and could be as great as he once was as a full Time Lord, maybe even better)

And I'll make you okay
And Drive the away
The images stuck in your head (And doesn't that just seem like Rose, that she would try to do this for him?)

Then this:

Of people that you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
They push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still (Because of course he has been many different people, many different versions of him, some of whom he really seemed to hate, and she could help him still those thoughts)

And this:

And I'll make you mine, keep you apart
Deep in my heart, separate from the rest
Where I like you the best (Because she'd have to, wouldn't she? She'd have to separate him from Nine and Ten a bit to deal with the situation and deal with the fact that he's the only one who never left her, so she could convince him of this and convince herself).

I'd sure like it if a fic could come out of this. Maybe on the drive down to Portland this weekend I'll give it a go. I need to get my Doctor/Rose mojo back. This song would just make a great vid for them, too, wouldn't it?
amberfocus: (Rose--Big Bad Wolf)
Okay, it's a little after midnight and it's not technically Tuesday anymore, but so what. I found a good one.

I should be back posting again tomorrow. I had a bad week. Patricia died. Then Sweetie Belle died. Hence the trolling of youtube for tearjerker Doctor/Rose vids to make me feel...better. Yeah, I'm like that.

Today's vid rec is by xMemoryLanex and is a lovely AU vid of Ten/Rose with cameos by Eleven and the War!Doctor.

amberfocus: (Cartoon Rory and Amy)
This vid really reminded me of the tragedy in the love story of Amy and Rory. It's beautifully put together. Makes me tear up every time I watch it.

amberfocus: (Rose Find Me)
The song is Shattered by Trading Yesterday. I think it was overused quite a bit back in the day, but this particular vid is one of the best of them, and it tears my heart out every time. Vid is by analeian.

amberfocus: (Nine and Rose--BW Embrace)
It's been a while since I've hit on a vid that felt poignant enough to do a Tuesday Tears rec. This one is short but it definitely tugs on the heart strings. The melody is haunting and Eleven's angst is always nice to see. I love it when he is so clearly missing Rose on the show, but it's rare. Fortunately it is less rare in vids.

amberfocus: (CE Birthday Present Icon--Do Not Take)
...but I have a feeling it's going to be a really great year. Yep, it's my birthday today and as such there will be no Tuesday Tears vid, because who wants an angst fest on their birthday? But I do have a vid for you to share. May TROCK never die.

Also, in case you missed it, [livejournal.com profile] then_theres_us is back up and running. My fic Blonde is here: http://then-theres-us.livejournal.com/331309.html

I also recommend you take a gander at the fic Impossible if you want a little choking up (well, it should be Tuesday Tears, right?): http://then-theres-us.livejournal.com/331216.html

Actually go read them all. They're very good.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes and Dev, thanks for the v-gift. You couldn't know it, but every election Chris and I do this thing: Cthulu for President: Why Vote for the Lesser of Two Evils. Saw it on a bumper sticker years ago. It's still funny.

Now without further ado--TROCK vid Sonic Screwdriver. (I tried to make the ad go away).
