This shall be the year of the vid for me, I can already tell.

SO. Every now and then, I make something that is sort of someone else's fault. Sometimes they are well aware of this ([livejournal.com profile] tricksterquinn), sometimes it is completely unintentional and they don't realize it at all. This one is partly Quinn's fault, because she came out of Inception basically going OMG ARIADNE SQUEE. But it is also partly [livejournal.com profile] newredshoes's fault, though she doesn't know it, because guys, I don't listen to Tori Amos. Nothing wrong with her music at all, it's just not my usual. There is only one Tori Amos song on my iTunes, and it is this one, and I only have it because lo these many years ago, Esther put it on a mix CD for a college show we both worked on.

I'm glad she did.

LYRICS:

Met 'em in a Hotel
Met 'em in a Hotel
Beneath ground
Tell me that he's missing
Tell me this is one for
Lollipop Gestapo

You were wild
Where are you now
You were wild
Where are you now

Give me more
Give me more
Give me more

I have to learn to let you crash down
I have to learn to let you crash

Met 'em in a Hotel
Met 'em in a Hotel
You say he's the biggest thing
There'll be this year
I guess that what I'm seeking
I guess that what I'm seeking isn't here

Met him in a Hotel
Met him in a guess world
Guessed anyone but you

You were wild
Where are you now
You were wild
Where are you now

Give me more
Give me more
Give me more

I have to learn to let you crash down
I have to learn to let you crash

Where are the velvets
Where are the velvets
When you're coming down

You were wild
Where are you now
You were wild
Where are you now

King Solomon's Mines
Exit 75
I'm still alive
I'm still alive
I'm still alive

Lovely collection of Ariadne moments! I love that girl.
And neat great juxtaposition of scenes. They all correspond amazingly well!

Oh wow. Wow wow, YES. This song is a perfect fit for the canon. One might even say I incepted it? Er.

In conclusion: awesome. And I love how you clearly make Ariadne the star of the show. Great structure, great timing (a hallmark of your vids, I think), wonderful imagery. I'm glad to inadvertently be at fault! You've made a really great thing.

I'm so glad you liked it! And of course Ariadne is the star, psh.

That was really cool! The strange and rather epic feel of the song works very well for the material.

God, that was just perfect. I'm always after a good Ariadne story in this fandom, and this vid tells an excellent one. The song and the material are a great match -- I get a sense of cerebral, constrained wildness throughout, and so even though I knew exactly how the narrative was going to go, I was pretty frantic to see where you would take us next. I particularly love the section at about one minute in, where you pair the slow-motion explosions with the huge, slow vastness of the beat.

Thank you so much! There should definitely be more Ariadne in this fandom. I'm so glad this all worked for you!

This is gorgeous and the breakdown starting at 2:20 is fucking FIERCE. Also, I loved the subtle Ariadne/Arthur and Ariadne/Cobb (1:55 to 1:59 unnnnngh) throughout. Thanks for this totally amazing picture of Ariadne. Well done, you!

Ooooo love the song choice, so Inception and great for Ariadne. I love the juxtaposing of the totems and with the 'want to learn' line. And, ooohhhh, when the music gets more intense and the amping it up to in the dream job and then aligning Ariadne and Mal in limbo. SO lovely! And the ending with the 'I'm still alive' and all the waking up, perfect!

Thank you so much! The song was just begging to be made into an Ariadne vid, really. I'm very glad it all worked for you!

Funnily enough I hadn't heard this Tori song before (I don't listen to Tori much anymore either) so thanks for that as well, it's wonderful!

Wow. This blew me away.

I have no idea if this was your intent, but I thought the way that you shifted the perspectives so that Arthur, Cobb and Mal became the symbols in Ariadne's story (instead of everyone serving as hollow symbols to Cobb's was lovely). I also loved the sense that she was caught between Arthur's sturdiness and safety and the manic danger of Cobb. It was as though they were two different paths dream sharing could take her down- and the path of Cobb leads to becoming Mal,the dark potential inside of Ariadne. (Like the bit where Cobb's dream collapsing and his projections attacking is cut with her waking up to Arthur trying to comfort her).

There was just so much I read into everything and I adored that this was something that could lead to that. If that makes sense...

Thank you so much! It was fascinating to explore that world through Ariadne's lens -- and the parallels between her and Mal -- so I'm particularly glad that worked for you.
