This began with a text message. The morning after Dark Water aired and the whole world knew Missy's identity, I was listening to Taylor Swift's new album on the bus and sent a text to[personal profile] such_heights: "How long till someone makes a multi-era Doctor/Master vid to Blank Space?"

Cut to several hours later, I'm home again and we're dancing to the song on repeat in the kitchen, giggling maniacally, and storyboarding out loud. Yeah.

There followed a couple of weeks of, erm, "acquiring" LITERALLY EVERY EPISODE THE MASTER HAS EVER BEEN IN EVER and clipping All The Things. Clipping is boring, but naming clips is really fun. Here, have some examples which I feel sum up this whole vid quite nicely:

"But WHY won't you rule the universe with me Doctor?!?!"
"I made you a shiny thing!"
"Surprise! It's me!"
"Take my haaaaaaaaaand!!!11!1!"
"Dun dun DUNNNNNN dramatic intercutting of ANGST"
"Dies. (spoiler: does not die)"
"Various nefarious doings"
"Cat Master Serious Flirting"
"Master is the prima-est of all the donnas"
"SAY MY NAME"
"THE FUCK ARE YOUUUUUU Pt 1"
"THE FUCK ARE YOUUUUU Pt2"
"Bondage and Scenery Chewing"

(Er, yeah. Sometimes it was hard to find the actual moment we wanted. "Various nefarious doings" does not exactly narrow things down. But it was really fun looking. And other times it was really easy. "SAY MY NAME" :-D)

Then we MADE A VID, and guys guys guys let me tell you how much FUN it is making a vid with [personal profile] such_heights. It's ALL OF THE FUN. We had a full timeline so quickly because she is talented and amazing and I want her to make *all* my vids with me, even the ones that I make in secret because they are for her. Ok, maybe not those. But all the others. If I was making this on my own, I'd be about 30 painful seconds into my timeline by now. Anyway her lovely fiancée [personal profile] happydork and our other Awesome Flatmate K were very tolerant of us spending hours on the sofa playing tiny fragments of the song over and over, whilst shrieking about how EPIC and BEAUTIFUL the Doctor and the Master's love is. And about how Missy is the natural continuation of the Master's character development so far. (Seriously - everything about her feels perfectly right. She has Simm!Master's madness and Jacobie!Master's ruthlessness and Roberts!Master's melodramatic tendencies and Delgado!Master's suave humour and Ainley!Master's flamboyance. And, of course, she has characteristics all of her own. I WILL FIGHT anyone who is grumpy that she only kissed the Doctor once she is a woman because (a) theirs is the queerest relationship ever, and (b) making this vid has made me see just how flirty their relationship has always been. Simm!Master took it up a notch, but it didn't come out of nowhere.)

Seriously though, it's so epic. And there's so much bondage. And so much scenery chewing. And so much needless clutching. It's amazing. I had no idea I had all these feels.



Lyrics

Nice to meet you
Where you been?
I could show you incredible things
Magic, madness, heaven, sin
Saw you there and I thought oh my god
Look at that face, you look like my next mistake
Love's a game, wanna play…?

New money, suit and tie
I can read you like a magazine
Ain't it funny rumors fly
And I know you heard about me
So hey, let's be friends
I'm dying to see how this one ends
Grab your passport and my hand
I could make the bad guys good for a weekend

So it's gonna be forever
Or it's gonna go down in flames
You can tell me when it's over
If the high was worth the pain
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane
Cause you know I love the players
And you love the game

Cause we're young and we're reckless
We'll take this way too far
It'll leave you breathless
Or with a nasty scar
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane
But I got a blank space baby
And I'll write your name

Cherry lips
Crystal skies
I could show you incredible things
Stolen kisses, pretty lies
You're the king baby I'm your queen
Find out what you want
Be that girl for a month
But the worst is yet to come
Oh no

Screaming, crying, perfect storms
I could make all the tables turn
Rose garden filled with thorns
Keep you second guessing like oh my god
Who is she? I get drunk on jealousy
But you'll come back each time you leave
Cause darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream

So it's gonna be forever
Or it's gonna go down in flames
You can tell me when it's over
If the high was worth the pain
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane
Cause you know I love the players
And you love the game

Cause we're young and we're reckless
We'll take this way too far and leave you breathless
Or with a nasty scar
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane
But I got a blank space baby
And I'll write your name

Boys only want love if it's torture
Don't say I didn't say I didn't warn you
Boys only want love if it's torture
Don't say I didn't say I didn't warn you

So it's gonna be forever
Or it's gonna go down in flames
You can tell me when it's over
If the high was worth the pain
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane
Cause you know I love the players
And you love the game

Cause we're young and we're reckless
We'll take this way too far and leave you breathless
Or with a nasty scar
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane
But I got a blank space baby
And I'll write your name
