Outlander Fan Video The Mystic’s Dream

I’ve been looking or another fan video to post. I rejected quite a few. This one is beautiful, haunting and lyrical. The lyrics are posted below along with the video makers notes. As usual this is NSFW – it’s #Outlander after all…

NOTES: from the video maker (not me).

This is told as a legend, like a ballad, showing Jamie & Claire’s story, their thoughts and feelings, and how their love began and blossomed despite the everpresent danger surrounding them. The stones of Craigh na Dun being what brought her to him, and eventually what she comes to realize too – the clips for the lyrics showing that “there” is where their hearts are, because that is how she came to him.

Loads of other symbolism in effects & clips – here’s some: white glows = hope…pink glows = love…both glows = a hope for love…for the flickers of color at the sides, I used both green and heather (purple) for Scotland, and the white and gold ones symbolize hope. The black and white flickers show emptiness and danger (black and gray), but always with hope though sometimes faint (the white). The emerald green frames and (and the flickers) symbolize remembrance. The blurred purple rings at beginning- to give it a mystical feel, since she traveled through time, also first showing each of them before they met (but both with the sense that their lives would soon change and never be the same again). Story follows lyrics (which are a bit profound and I think can be taken different ways). For my vid, the part that begins with “Deep in the desert twilight”, for this vid, the desert = trouble/danger, and on through the lyrics of “darkness spreads its crimson cloak”- I made all that to show danger, distance, and death, what is always plaguing or pursuing them. Yet showing through all of that, their love only prevailed and grew stronger. The rest of symbolism take as you will- I have no more room to write! lol Sparkle clips credit: Pond and GreenScreen… extras clips credit- Outlander Portugal & Mo Chridhe

Lyrics to “The Mystic’s Dream” performed by Loreena McKennitt

A clouded dream on an earthly night
Hangs upon the crescent moon
A voiceless song in an ageless light
Sings at the coming dawn
Birds in flight are calling there
Where the heart moves the stones
It’s there that my heart is longing for
All for the love of you

A painting hangs on an ivy wall
Nestled in the emerald moss
The eyes declare a truce of trust
And then it draws me far away
Where deep in the desert twilight
Sand melts in pools of the sky
When darkness lays her crimson cloak
Your lamps will call, call me home

And so it’s there my homage’s due
Clutched by the still of the night
And now I feel, feel you move
And every breath is full
So it’s there my homage’s due
Clutched by the still of the night
Even the distance feels so near
All for the love of you.

A clouded dream on an earthly night
Hangs upon the crescent moon
A voiceless song in an ageless light
Sings at the coming dawn
Birds in flight are calling there
Where the heart moves the stones
It’s there that my heart is longing for
All for the love of you.
