kaydeefalls: erik turns the warheads around, "peace was never an option" (never an option)

In case you hadn't noticed, I ♥ X-Men these days. Which kind of makes this the longest I've ever been actively involved in one fandom, since I got hooked on X2 when it came out eight years ago. Um, unless you count the bit after X3 where my interest DIED because X3 sucked so much and there were only so many desperate post-X3 sort-of-fix-it fics I could write. (Three, to be specific.)

That's the only excuse I can give for this vid, really. I just love this universe SO MUCH, except for the parts I pretend didn't happen. Like the beach divorce. Or X-Men 3. Or the boring bits of Wolverine. BUT THE CHARACTERS ARE ALL STILL AWESOME OKAY.

And this may be a very busy night of posting for me...

LYRICS:
It was a slow day
And the sun was beating
On the soldiers by the side of the road
There was a bright light
A shattering of shop windows
The bomb in the baby carriage
Was wired to the radio
These are the days of miracle and wonder
This is the long distance call
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
The way we look to us all
The way we look to a distant constellation
That's dying in a corner of the sky
These are the days of miracle and wonder
And don't cry baby, don't cry
Don't cry

It's a turn-around jump shot
It's everybody jump start
It's every generation throws a hero up the pop charts
Medicine is magical and magical is art
Think of the boy in the bubble
And the baby with the baboon heart

And I believe
These are the days of lasers in the jungle
Lasers in the jungle somewhere
Staccato signals of constant information
A loose affiliation of millionaires
And billionaires and baby
These are the days of miracle and wonder
This is the long distance call
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
The way we look to us all
The way we look to a distant constellation
That's dying in a corner of the sky
These are the days of miracle and wonder
And don't cry baby, don't cry
Don't cry

Feelings, I have them. That was so excellent, I love the way you managed to take everyone as they are, good and bad together.

I have watched this vid SO MANY TIMES. :D It just takes me back to all my love and nostalgia for the characters, not to mention the amazing experience of seeing the first movie for the first time and having them all come to life in a superhero movie that was actually ... good! Thank you so much for making this!

this was wonderful. terrific song choice--I was not familiar with it but I love the tone it sets for the vid.

So many interesting connections because of the lyrics and the similar movements, elements in chatacters' mutations or similar mood. I love that you brought in pretty much ALL OF THEM, because that expansiveness is one of the things that makes the X-Men verses so special.
