Fan made music video for 'The Girl That Love Made Blind' - an unreleased demo by Blue Oyster Cult from the 1988 Imaginos album.

I admit the video is a little weird, but the song is a tad weird too so in a way I think it's rather fitting. It doesn't feature the band because I was trying to go for a similar approach to the official 'Astronomy' video - clips that seem a bit disconnected but show different parts of the story. I was thinking I might do a video for either Les Invisibles or the Siege And Investiture... that features more of the band.

The song's a waltz, so I tried to get lots of waltzing in there. It also has some rather heavy parts, so I tried to get some darker, heavier clips in for that amazing guitar part towards the end of the video.

I have a sort of ongoing challenge with myself to get David Tennant into every music video I make, no matter how seemingly irrelevant it may be, so he's in this (and waltzing, so actually it's not too irrelevant).

Also, I quite liked the feel of some Within Temptation videos to go with this song, so they're in this too. Sharon den Adel is supposed to be the girl in the Baron's castle. The ship at the end is supposed to be the Plutonia and the dancers are supposed to be guests at the party of astrologers. As to the rest of it, I don't really know. It's just a rather surreal video to go with a rather surreal song.

Ah, I'm now remembering what inspired me to write that fic. It was the song "Acoustic Song" by Bruce Dickinson, and this piece of fanart by MegSuccubusFilth (click on the picture to see some more of her work):

I took the song lyrics out when I entered it for the writing competition, but it was originally a songfic. Even if the writing itself is only at the standard of a fourteen year old and needs a lot of work, it still brings back memories of a beautiful song and I think I did manage to capture the feeling of the song and the painting when I wrote it. That's why, despite its flaws, I'm proud of it.

Even though I posted the non-songfic version, I wanted to show how it worked with the lyrics, so here's the original.

When You Awake (Songfic Version) )

I've been going through some of my completed drabbles and ficlets on FictionPress, and despite how nervous I was about sharing this one at first I'm now quite proud of it. This is an original ficlet I wrote quite a while ago - when I was fourteen I think, and compared to the other stuff I was writing and that age this one is rather good. Initially, I was a bit shy about sharing it with everyone because I thought it might be a bit too 'smushy', but last year I got up the courage to enter it into Take A Break magazine's Young Fiction Writer of the Year Contest. It didn't win, but it got credited for a special mention, and since I'm quite pleased with it I thought I'd archive it here.

Title: When You Awake
Genre: Fantasy/Romance
