kaydeefalls: raven smiles brilliantly (raven hearts you)
[personal profile] kaydeefalls
Vidding is easier than writing. Fuck writing.

Also, while DoFP was pretty much the anti-plotbunny for me (it's hard for me to explain why, exactly, but seriously), it did give me all the Raven feels. And this song has been bouncing around in my head as a theoretical Avengers vid for many months now, but it definitely suits the X-Men universe better than the MCU.

I feel confident that this will be the least popular fanwork I post this year, because most of fandom seems to either actively dislike or feel entirely indifferent towards Raven. Whatever, I DO WHAT I WANT.

Human
fandom: X-Men (FC + DoFP)
characters: Raven + Charles, Erik, Hank
music: "Human", by the Killers
summary: Are we human or are we dancer? A Mystique vid.

I did my best to notice
When the call came down the line
Up to the platform of surrender
I was brought but I was kind

And sometimes I get nervous
When I see an open door
Close your eyes, clear your heart
Cut the cord

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

Pay my respects to grace and virtue
Send my condolences to good
Hear my regards to soul and romance
They always did the best they could

And so long to devotion
You taught me everything I know
Wave goodbye, wish me well
You've gotta let me go

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

Will your system be alright
When you dream of home tonight
There is no message we're receiving
Let me know, is your heart still beating?

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
You've gotta let me know

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

Are we human or are we dancer?
Are we human or are we dancer?

RAVEN.

That was great. I especially liked the intercutting in the first part, and the way you contrasted Erik and Charles' initial attitudes to her true form. And also how you made DoFP center on her. Eeeee.

This was wonderful. Even without any solid knowledge of X-Men movie verses or Raven, I got a lot of feels.

Raven! What a great portrait. I love that the new movies actually give her a storyline and development, and your vid crystallizes this beautifully.

I love this! It had never occurred to me to think of this as an X-Men song, but you really made it fit Raven perfectly. I especially loved the part where Raven is saying so long to devotion.

Raven was my favourite part about DOFP. I just did not like that movie, I don't know why but she was AWESOME. This vid is a beautiful illustration of her journey. <3<3<3<3<3

FOr me, Raven is the heart and soul of the reboooted movies, even if they don't always remember that. This was just a great look at her, at what she's been through and felt, and I liked the sense of culmination to this.
