Fandom: Tess of the d'Urbervilles (2008)
Characters/Pairings: Tess and Alec
Song: Pretty When You Cry
Artist: VAST

I started this last fall, but the music kept glitching on me. So here it is, finally, in its complete glory.

If it seems a little off, it's because WMM refused to export the song without crackling, so I had to save the cut song separately then smack the full video down on top of it. I do believe the singer WMM has killed my lady wife the audio. Some of the beats are off, too, because of the second run-through. It was much nicer before, although the crackly audio was not cool.

If you want to, you can download it here

In short, I really enjoyed this book and this movie, so this was borne of sustained pondering. Symbolism abounds. I chose to juxtapose the source with very modern, synthesized music purposefully, since I know VAST wouldn't be my first thought for ~BBC period drama~. 

Comments and discussion are so appreciated.

Lyrics for your convenience:

you're made of my rib, oh, baby
you're made of my sin
and I can't tell where your lust ends and where your love begins

I didn't wanna hurt you, baby
I didn't wanna hurt you
I didn't wanna hurt you
but you're pretty when you cry

the moon gives me permission
I enter through her eyes
she's losing her virginity
and all her will to compromise


I didn't wanna fuck you, baby,
I didn't wanna fuck you
I didn't wanna fuck you
but you're pretty when you're mine

I didn't really love you, baby,
I didn't really love you
but I'm pretty when I lie

You hurt me, baby,
I hurt you, baby

If you knew how much I love you
you would run away
but when I treat you bad it always makes you wanna stay
