Oh my god this is such a terrible show /o\ Awesome Flatmate K and I started watching it last year, because of (a) Peter Capaldi being a moustache-twirling, cape-swirling villain, and (b) the extreme hotness of the entire cast. Seriously, all 4 Musketeers and all 3 leading ladies are RIDICULOUSLY HOT and it's not fair that they're all in such an awful show. In our defence, at least Season 1 fell squarely into the category of 'wacky fun' (with obligatory angst and an actual literal Bucket o'Manpain, but still). Season 2 decided that it needed to be Dark and Gritty and basically more Adult, and correspondingly lost a lot of its charm. But like FOOLS we kept watching, despite the abysmal dialogue, the plots which somehow managed to be simultaneously completely predictable and utterly incoherent, and the increasingly skeevy violence. BECAUSE EVERYONE WAS REALLY HOT, OK.

....and then we found we'd watched all of Season 2. And then Flatmate K was listening to this song (inexplicably, on an Agent Carter fanmix) and I realised it needed to be an Athos/Milady vid. I DIDN'T WANT TO BE THE ONE TO MAKE IT. But I trawled youtube and youtube did not provide so...suddenly I found myself making this, with the maliciously gleeful encouragement of Flatmate K, who I very much blame for everything. In my defence, it has proved to be a nice break from the Twelve And Clara Vid Of My Heart which I've been "making" (read: adding about one clip per week to the timeline) for at least 2 months now. But actually that's not really a defence, because I've spent an entire week on this piece of ridiculousness and I still have a Vidukon auction vid to make and a premiere to finish and a vidshow to put together and oh no this was a terrible idea what have I done /o\




Lyrics

I was five, and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black, and I wore white
He would always win the fight

Bang bang. He shot me down
Bang bang. I hit the ground
Bang bang. That awful sound
Bang bang. My baby shot me down

Seasons came, and changed the time
When I grew up I called him mine
He would always laugh and say:
Remember when we used to play

Bang bang. I shot you down
Bang bang. You hit the ground
Bang bang. That awful sound
Bang bang. I used to shoot you down

Music played, and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang

Now he's gone, I don't know why
Until this day sometimes I cry
He didn't even say Goodbye
He didn't take the time to lie

Bang bang. He shot me down
Bang bang. I hit the ground

Bang bang. He shot me down
Bang bang. I hit the ground
Bang bang. That awful sound
Bang bang. My baby shot me down

Bang bang. He shot me down
Bang bang. I hit the ground
Bang bang. That awful sound
Bang bang. My baby shot me down

Bang Bang

Great to see this -- I like the way you used all the flower references to thread their story together. This ship ought to have a ton of fanworks for it given the angsty enemy pairing it is.

I feel for you when it comes to watching series two. (What happened, show of my heart? What. Happened.) But I am SUPER DELIGHTED YOU GAVE IN AND MADE THE VID. *excited dolphin noises*

LOVE the song choice. It's great for their often violent, often chaotic, often extremely ill advised relationship, which you've portrayed so excellently in your editing.

And on top of all the damsel in distressing, they made both Aramis and d'Artagnan (that one was from left field) suuuuuuper dicks. I'll just be over here, forever bitter. But Athos really grew on me out of nowhere in S2 and so did Milady, and Porthos and Constance were still their lovely charming selves for the most part. So anyway, tl;dr, come on S3, pull it together.

*watches your vid 10 more times*

Aww, it's a perfect Athos/Milady vid! (and now with all the feels I suddenly want to give another try to this ridiculous show))
