Lullaby for a Stormy Night from kaydee falls on Vimeo.

It took me a long time to settle on a song for this vid. I had really wanted to find a quiet arrangement of "Bye Bye Blackbird", actually, like the version sung in the film History Boys, but hours and hours of hunting provided me with nothing that felt right (every cover I could find was either way too jazzy or way too slow). So I trawled through my iTunes library for something else, and, well, I do tend to default to Vienna Teng. I've seen a couple of vids to this song before -- [personal profile] such_heights did a fabulous Amy Pond vid to it, and it turned up on Festivids a few years back as well -- which made me wary, because I don't like retreading ground others have covered better. But it just WORKED so well for Ofelia, with Mercedes' lullaby, and brought out the darker undertones of the song in ways that kind of gave me chills just imagining it. (The wind makes creatures of our trees / and the branches to hands / they're not real, understand, except, of course, for Ofelia, they ARE real, UGH MY HEART.) So, yes. I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out, in the end.

And Quinn was SUPER HELPFUL listening to me blather about it and pointing out things that weren't quite clear or working in the first draft, so thank you, again!
