be_themoon: I want a better world. By me. (Narnia: Susan: fire at will)
[personal profile] be_themoon
Title: In Some Dreaming State
Vidder:[personal profile] be_themoon
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia (
Music: "Blinding" by Florence + The Machine
Spoilers: For both movies.
Summary: No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love with the wrong world. Susan, and the wrongs done to her.
Streaming/Download: Streaming at Vimeo and download at FileFront.
Notes: I'm annoyed at some timing issues that won't go right, and definitely annoyed that I wasn't able to get copies of the movies that were both full-screen or wide-screen, rather than one of each. But in the end, this is the Susan vid that I really wanted to make. I wish I could do a full-length version of the song - maybe someday I'll be able to, if I use outside sources as well. In short - oh, Susan. This is my version of meta on the many, many ways she got screwed over by the narrative.

In Some Dreaming State from Elisabeth B. on Vimeo.


Seems that I have been held, in some dreaming state
A tourist in the waking world, never quite awake
No kiss, no gentle word could wake me from this slumber
Until I realise that it was you who held me under

Felt it in my fists, in my feet, in the hollows of my eyelids
Shaking through my skull, through my spine and down through my ribs

No more dreaming of the dead as if death itself was undone
No more calling like a crow for a boy, for a body in the garden
No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love
No more dreaming like a girl so in love with the wrong world

Susan! Also, I am glad that you chose this song. I think it's one of my favorites from her album. It really reminds me of Siouxsie and the Banshees.

Susannnnnn. Will I ever get over my love for this vid? Probably not. You are delightful, as is Susan, as is this song.

Man, I think I've watched that three times already; it was so good. I love what fandom does with Susan so much.

OMG SUSAN. You chose excellent footage. I don't know if it's the scenes you chose, or the drama you built with your sequencing, probably both AND MORE, but the centrality and heart of Susan in this vid strikes deep. Her facial expressions so suit their place in the song, and it really is the perfect song for her. I like when she's parting the clothes in the wardrobe, I LOVE WHEN SHE IS DRAWING HER BOW, the way that fit. And oh i see you wut u did thar, with the "no kiss" line and then "no more crawling for a boy" ;D.

Oh I didn't know you had done this! I've seen this song done for other characters, but wow it really fits Susan. I love the edge of anger and lack of repentance in the song and the clips you chose.

This is really amazing. Such a fitting song, and the editing was fabulous.
