Much paranoia and even more technological failure later (and really kind of slightly late now S2 has just started, but oh well) - a Sleepy Hollow vid! Mostly finished just last week, this only contains clips from S1.

Cold War
edited by [personal profile] purplefringe
fandom: Sleepy Hollow
characters: Jenny (& Abbie)
music: Cold War by Janelle Monáe
summary: Do you know what you're fighting for?
notes: Spoilers for all of S1
warnings: Some fast, stuttery cuts, some depictions of violence

HUGE thanks to [personal profile] shinyjenni and [personal profile] beccatoria for wonderfully insightful and articulate beta-ing via email! <3 <3 <3 And also, as always, to [personal profile] such_heights who watched this particular vid on her holiday, and then numerous times since :-)

pointless ramblings:
I loved Jenny whilst watching the show over the last few weeks. I loved her complexity, her personal cocktail of brittleness and anger and unexpected humour. I loved her even more in the context of her relationship with Abbie, which is one of the most beautiful, intense depictions of a pair of sisters that I've ever seen. They gave me so many Feelings, omg. (sidenote: someone should vid the pair of them alongside Buffy and Dawn, and maybe Anna and Elsa, and other amazing sisters who fight and hug and save each other and prevent the apocalypse. Please.) BUT. Jenny was never my favourite! Abbie and Ichabod have my heart and soul, and I thought if I were to vid any relationship in the show, it would be theirs. Maybe I will in the future…I do have a seriously cracky Ichabod vid brewing.

Anyway, the realisation that Cold War needed to be a Jenny vid hit me very suddenly in the middle of the night, about two hours after watching the S1 finale, and about twelve hours after declaring dramatically to [personal profile] such_heights that I *really wanted* to make a vid but COULD NOT BE BOTHERED TO MAKE ANY CLIPS UGHHHH so might have to work on one of the dormant projects pre-clipped and half-finished on my hard drive.

Ha. Hahahahaha. NOPE. Vid Farr set in suddenly, and, er, this happened. I have Thoughts about what I set out to vid (surprise surprise), about Jenny's arc and about my interpretation of the song lyrics...but have learned from extensive email correspondence with my lovely betas that actually other people can explain the jumbled mess inside my head waaaaay more coherently than I can, so I should just leave you all to it.


Lyrics

So you think I'm alone?
But being alone's the only way to be
When you step outside
You spend life fighting for your sanity

This is a cold war
You better know what you're fighting for
This is a cold war
Do you know what you're fighting for?

If you want to be free
Below the ground is the only place to be
'Cause in this life
You spend time running from depravity

This is a cold war
Do you know what you're fighting for?
This is a cold war
You better know what you're fighting for
This is a cold war
You better know what you're fighting for
This is a cold war
Do you know what you're fighting for?

Bring wings to the weak and bring grace to the strong
May all evil stumble as it flies in the world
All the tribes comes and the mighty will crumble
We must brave this night and have faith in love

I'm trying to find my peace
I was made to believe there's something wrong with me
And it hurts my heart
Lord have mercy, ain't it plain to see?

That this is a cold war
Do you know what you're fighting for?
This is a cold war
You better know what you're fighting for

This is a cold, cold war
You better know what you're fighting for

Do you know? It's a cold...
Do you?
Do you?

It's a cold ...
You better know what you're fighting for
bye bye bye bye, don't you cry when I say goodbye...
bye bye bye bye, don't you cry when I say goodbye...)
