[vid] don't lose yourself - inception - ariadne  
WisCon premiere
Inception. Ariadne character study, gen.
Staring at the entrance to the mine, I prayed for your wounds to close. Ariadne is the heart of the team. Song by Laura Veirs.

note: this is a slightly cleaned up version from what played at the con. I've tightened up a few clips, but nothing that should detract from the main narrative. Embed and download under cut.

Lyrics:
I felt my vocal chords weakening
I felt my concave thoughts
I felt my voluntary blindness
for staring straight into the sun
the romantic air of your eye patch
called me across the room
I clung there and danced with your silent
admired your divine tattoos

we slept in the shadow of a cedar tree
we made love on the rolling tide
we smelled the perfume of the waxing moon
we dreamt of all friendships kind
we touched the blood of the black cat
we pet the mammoth dog of tears
in the flickering light we were laughing:
"necessity conquers fear!"

don't lose yourself
don't let yourself be lost...

dreaming we were stones in black stillness
dreaming of the death of the sun
waking to a world of white blindness
painted eyes of the holy one
the death of the world was upon us
and the discipline of the wind
we see less and less all the time, dear
just look at this mess we are in

don't lose yourself,
don't let yourself be lost!...

staring at the entrance to the mine
I prayed for your wounds to close
tiger ointment and a cosmic collision
and the crucifixion of the rose
don't lose yourself, don't lose yourself...

don't lose yourself,
don't let yourself be lost...


Also, this is my second vid, and my first vid after falling out of vidding and fandom for a few years, so any comments and concrit are hugely appreciated!

Thank you so much, I'm glad it worked for you! The movie itself is very pretty, and definitely deserves watching.

Really fantastic song choice! I loved the clip choices for the 'don't lose yourself' lyrics - the crumbling dreamscape in particular - but the song felt optimistic enough to match Ariadne's personality. She really was my favorite character in Inception, so it's great to see a vid focusing on her role.

Thank you! Ariadne is quickly becoming my favourite character from everything ever, and her compassion, level-headedness and optimism is what drew me.

She's my favorite character too. :) I love her to death and I probably love her more than I ever loved Harry Potter. Haha.
