VID: Begin [v 2.0]

(v 2.0)
edited by such_heights
fandom: Doctor Who
music: 'Begin', by Ben Lee
summary: I'm thinking about how I just want to open up and give and give and give.
download: [mediafire] .mp4, 31MB.
stream: below.
spoilers: Through Torchwood 2x08 and Doctor Who 4x13.
notes: This is a (somewhat substantial) reworking of one of the earliest vids I made, and the first I posted publicly. An improvement, I hope, now that I can do things like maintain correct aspect ratios and cut to a different clip every once in a while.

Oh, Martha. ♥

This is just right.
Thanks so much! (eee, Martha!)
Martha! *beams*

:D Thank you! Oh, Martha. *covers in hearts*
Oh. That's so lovely.
Thanks so much! :D
Hee! I love it - I loved the original but this is just beautiful. Particularly loved the early sequence of Martha just looking so joyful at the things she was experiencing - because I think sometimes it's easy for that to get lost amidst how dark Season 3 was.

More generally I also love how you portray the progression of Martha's story. One of the the reasons that Martha is my favourite, is because with the other companions I think the Doctor becomes in one sense a full stop - they experience and learn and develop but once their time with the Doctor is over, that's it - there's nothing else. Which is depressing and heartbreaking. For me Martha breaks that pattern, she continues to grow and move after the Doctor - she's excited for her life after the Doctor, because it's going to be fantastic - and I think you captured that feeling perfectly.

(P.S. I also think that's why there is so much great post-Donna fic - it's not just about fixing her ending, it's about showing that her life can still progress too).

Err... too long - so in short. I LOVE IT!
Yay, I am so glad you enjoyed it, thank you! I completely agree about her overall arc and why I love it so much, even though it is often sad along the way.
This was really great and I loved your vid notes. Made me giggle. :P
Haha, thank you! Truly, I feel I have Grown.
oh martha... *squishes*
such a lovely vid!
I am so pleased you liked it, thank you!
Awww, I love this so much!! I loved the first version too, but this is just so wonderful. ♥
Yay, I'm really glad to hear the updated version worked for you, thank you!

Thank you, I'm glad it worked for you!
I like how this is understated but elegant; very much like Martha herself. Cool vid! :)
Thank you very much!
I don't think Martha gets nearly enough love. She's smart and brave and strong and ultimately a soldier.
In my experience with this fandom, spanning several years and many boxes of tissue, I've noticed a serious lack of yay Martha. Thank you for this gem <3
