CLAAAAAARAFAAAAAAAACE. <3333! I haven't written anything about the S9 finale yet, because it's still processing and percolating through my brain. I have about 1000 words of random (and kind of unintelligible) notes about various meta points and parallels and things I would like to think about further. But really, my main feelings are twofold:

1) That is the BEST COMPANION ENDING EVER, and EVERYTHING I wanted for Clara-My-Clara. She DOES end up on Gallifrey, as I've hoped all along, but she goes there the long way round :-) :-) And she steals a Tardis and runs away with her space girlfriend to have adventures and she is alive and dead at the same time and oh, it's all so perfect my little heart nearly exploded with joy.

2) I AM SO VERY SAD FOR TWELVE. :-( :-( That is what made me make this vid. I needed to do something to process all my sadness for Twelve and everything he doesn't know he's lost, so I can move on and be *properly* happy for Clara. So I made this. This is a song I've wanted to vid for a long time, but have never had a fandom for it until now - and, as with Never Look Away, the more I listened to it, the more apt the lyrics seemed.

I was intending for my third Clara & Doctor vid to continue in the meta-vein of Never Look Away & Pompeii, and I do in fact have a whole list of potential songs for Big Shiny Meta Vid about their whole wonderful arc...but I got distracted by Feels and made a sad S9 vid instead. I'm sorry /o\




Sun sets in an ocean of brown farmland haze
Power lines draped across roads you could drive on for days
Well it's all too perfect
Time to look back at us now

Endless and empty like Kansas
Our cities of clouds
Flat on the table like Kansas

I lay down in sheets suddenly worn threadbare
Every wall I lean on transforms to sliding doors and thin air
Well I hope yours is kinder
Let go of this when you find her

Bury this hard
Down underneath your white canvas
Our houses of cards
Flat on the table like Kansas

It's not regret
Just an unexpected accounting of debts
Only now called
No it's not regret
Just remembrance is all
Of how close we had come
The war almost won
But I sent up our flag and moved on

You and I
Lost to the winter like Kansas
And all my goodbyes
Flat on the table like Kansas
