'Walk of Life' Nine/Rose fanvid  
I've been working on this video on and off for about a week now (way too many hours to count) and I'm finally done. Thanks to eolivet and my sister -- who had an decidedly unbiased opinion as she doesn't watch the show -- for helping me out.

This is all Nine/Rose. I didn't cheat and even grab experiences from series two. Everything is from series one, all Nine (okay, okay, one teeny clip from series 3). Anyhoo, first vid in this fandom, first video in a long time. I chose Billie Piper's song "Walk of Life" because it just called to me. I NEVER do (make or watch) videos where the gender doesn't match the point of view, but yet this song -- sung by a female -- is from the Doctor's perspective. So I broke my own rule. Again, the song just called to me and would not let go, and I figured, hey, it can be narration and, and ... it's Billie Piper, for goodness sake, that has to count for something!

Anyhoo, enjoy, I hope anyone who watches it does. You can either download it from mediafire or watch it streaming from youtube.

This is just beautiful! I am impressed that you managed to stay with just clips from Nine/Rose. *extra points for that* ;-) And by staying with totally Nine, you have given me new insight into the finale. LOL So thank you. I am off to ponder. *grin* And maybe watch the vid a few more times. <3

Thank you, I'm glad that you enjoyed it. YAY!

by staying with totally Nine, you have given me new insight into the finale.

Now this intrigues me. How so? I'd love to hear the results of your pondering.

That was GREAT! Awesome. Lovely. Fantastic. I enjoyed it immensely, especially because of all the angsty videos that tend to be done for the Doctor and Rose (Either Nine or Ten or both). This is great. I like to favorite videos like this so when I need a good pick-me-up, I go find them

Well done, good job.

I love the angsty vids, but it's nice to have fun ones and I'm just not an angst person. Not vids, not fic, not anything. I can write angsty fic, but it HAS to have a happy ending. Vids? Too short to be anything but as happy as I can make 'em.

I'm glad you enjoyed this, thanks for commenting. :)

Cute! Now I so want to re-watch Season 1.
Arabian: Dr Who (10) - Kissarabian on August 9th, 2008 11:47 pm (UTC)
You should!! It's been so much fun rewatching it. I'm doing WW3 tomorrow and I'm so excited looking forward to it.

This was really uplifting and had a great sense of wonder for all the amazing experiences they shared. The literal "walking" clips throughout were a nice touch, too!
Arabian: Donna/Rose promoarabian on August 10th, 2008 01:25 am (UTC)
Aww, thank you. I tried to not take it TOO literal (and fear I may have in one section), but I did want to show all the walking togetherness, because I heart those scenes.

I’m sitting here grinning like an idiot. I’d be tempted to love it just because it’s Nine/Rose. *ships them hard* But it’s fantastic.

(There’s a scene about two minutes in that I didn’t recognize, though. Is it from the beginning of “Father’s Day”?)
Arabian: Veronica_Anime-Stylearabian on August 10th, 2008 01:25 am (UTC)
Glad you like it. I do love Ten, but I see so many more vids for Ten/Rose or a mixture that I wanted to do one devoted to JUST Nine/Rose.

There’s a scene about two minutes in that I didn’t recognize, though. Is it from the beginning of “Father’s Day”?

Do you mean the part where he's walking (Don't let me walk alone, that lyric)? If so, yeah, that's from "Father's Day" after he and Rose had their little argument at the flat and he takes off.
Shaela Scanlonmls03j on August 10th, 2008 01:29 am (UTC)
Do you mean the part where he’s walking (Don’t let me walk alone, that lyric)?

No. Sorry, I should’ve been more specific. It’s at 2:03, and he and Rose are standing at the Tardis console. I think the lyrics were something like, “There’ll always be a place for you.”
Arabian: Dr Who (9)arabian on August 10th, 2008 01:33 am (UTC)
Yup, that's from FD too. I wound up using clips from that and "The End of the World" the most, I think.

One awsome vid-story there! Like someone said already- I come in loving it just because it's 9/Rose. But you did a *fantastic* job matching the lyrics with the action...*sigh* just lovely! Happy times!
Arabian: Dr Who (9)arabian on August 10th, 2008 02:12 am (UTC)
Thank you. I tried really hard to match all of the clips not only with the beats of music but with the lyrics playing out. I wanted each one to match the emotion or motive behind the scene. I'm so happy that you saw that in the video. Yay!
Nic: TARDIScytherea999 on August 10th, 2008 02:59 am (UTC)
Wow,
I am a total Rose/Ten Shipper, but I also Love Nine, and that vid was great, almost enough to make me turn!!
Beautiful, thankyou!
Arabian: Dr Who (Rose/10/9)arabian on August 10th, 2008 03:01 am (UTC)
Aww, thank you. That's a fabulous compliment for someone who prefers one over the other. I really appreciate that. Thanks for watching and enjoying (and commenting)!

Excellent work, I love it! I only just recently heard any of Billie Piper's songs, and this is my favorite of them, I was hoping somebody would do a vid for it :D
Arabian: Billie Piper_01arabian on August 10th, 2008 01:27 pm (UTC)
I admit, I LOVE Billie Piper, the pop star. There's a few I'm eh on, but I like most of them and ADORE quite a few. My favorite is actually "Honey to the Bee" -- and it SOOO fits Doctor/Rose.
help, i'm alive ;;odakota_rose on August 10th, 2008 11:03 pm (UTC)
*G*
Same here, and most of them I really like, "Honey to the Bee" is another favorite, are you going to be doing a vid for that one as well?
Arabian: Dr Who (10) - Impossible Planetarabian on August 10th, 2008 11:16 pm (UTC)
I'd love to, but it's too romantic/sexual literally in nature to work with a couple who barely have any physical interaction beyond hugs and hand-holding. The two (three, if you count the Cassandra one) kisses and lingering looks are lovely, but, yeah, that song just drips with sexuality, and the clips aren't just there to truly support the song.

Yeah, true. Hugs and such are good but wouldn't quite work for that song. Oh well ;)
In any case, good job with this vid *g*

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it so much. YAY!

I loved this. I miss Nine and Rose so much, and this was a wonderful celebration of what they were. :}
Arabian: Dr Who (Nine)arabian on August 10th, 2008 01:28 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I miss Nine/Rose too. I do wish that we'd had two series' of Christopher Eccleston, but at least we got this fabulous one.
Absoluteabsolute_tash on August 10th, 2008 09:04 am (UTC)
Oh, Nine and Rose were so much love. I dig Ten, really, he's great, but I LOVE nine and his dynamic with Rose. This was a really sweet video, really clear and well paced. Yay!
Arabian: Dr Whoarabian on August 10th, 2008 01:28 pm (UTC)
Yes, yes, yes!!!

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed the vid.

Aww, thank you. Squee, perfect!

Beautiful. I'm missing Nine/Rose soooo much right now. They're so lovely together :)
Arabian: Dr Who (9) - BTarabian on August 17th, 2008 09:27 pm (UTC)
I missed this comment. Thank you so much. Yeah, rewatching s1, it just reminds me so much of how truly awesome they were. Sigh.
eolivet on August 12th, 2008 05:42 pm (UTC)
Sorry so late in getting to this -- I wanted to make sure I had ample time to enjoy it. :D

This is wonderful. And in context, the fast parts of the chorus aren't too choppy at all -- they work really well (yay for sticking to your guns!!) You captured so many of their best moments, but I will say that you also managed to find moments perfectly timed to the tempo of the music (and that's difficult!!) The lyrics are great, too...very appropos. :)

So, bravo -- this is a phenomenal piece of work!!! :D I LOVE having a Nine/Rose "happy" video -- I've never seen one before. :) Thanks so much for creating and posting!!! :D

No, I slowed them down. There are only two or three per "all you could see" whereas before there were about five or six. So, you helped definitely.

You've never seen happy Nine/Rose happy? Well, check your email, missy!!!! I've got a few I'll send your way.

you also managed to find moments perfectly timed to the tempo of the music (and that's difficult!!) The lyrics are great, too...very appropos. :)

I tried REALLY hard to do that, so thank you!
