Supergirl - Start As You Mean To Go On from shinyjenni on Vimeo.



(password: namingnames)

We're gonna start by aiming higher
We're gonna start by naming names
We're gonna start some rumours, start some fires, then start to fan the flames
Well that storm up there's been twisting
That cloud looks set to break
And when trouble comes we'll start the drums
And leave it in our wake

We're gonna start the camera rolling
We're gonna start to write the song
I've got these two good reasons here why I can't get it wrong

We're gonna set this record straight
Gonna do what must be done
Start as we mean to go on
Well we came to the party late
But we're staying here to see the sun
Start as we mean to go on

There's changes in the air right now
There's panic at the scene of the crime
They were sharpening claws behind closed doors and then they heard us calling time
So we'll start the meter running
We're gonna start to count the cost
See what we're becoming and not what has been lost

We're gonna set this record straight
Gonna do what must be done
Start as we mean to go on
Well we came to the party late
But we're staying here to see the sun
Start as we mean to go on

We've got to take the trouble, take up space
Take that smile off his face
Talk the game, talk in tongues
Take the bullet from the gun
Come on, start the band, start back where we began

Well we came to the party late
But we're staying here to see the sun
Start as we mean to go on

We're gonna set this record straight
Gonna do what must be done
Start as we mean to go on
Well we came to the party late
But we're staying here to see the sun
Start as we mean to go on
Start as we mean to go on

So, I'm aware that I already commented on this on its Festivids post, but having watched it a bunch more times now, I wanted to add some more squee. ;D

So, first off, THE SONG. I CAN'T GET OVER HOW MUCH THIS IS THE PERFECT SONG CHOICE. YOU ARE A GENIUS.

The vid is just so hopeful and delightful and determined and so perfectly captures everything I love about Kara and the show and how it's basically an amazing ball of superhero love and sunshine and asskicking and finding oneself. <3<3<3

Just, the moment it begins, with her flying, and how you've caught all the beats and "start"s so well, and it just makes me want to explode with joy and go save the world. Yes. ;D
And, as well as how much I love the punching montage, I also love how you've used so many moments where she really thumps into things and it's clear she's so powerful and so strong.
Aaaah, and I love what you've done with "we came to the party late" and "start back where we began"! And all the smiling and hugs at the end! :D
AND I really love all the stuff you've got in there about all the people around her, and how very not alone she is.

Wheeeeeeeeeeee! :D
