(And have wonderful moments of dissonance playing British Actor Bingo cross-referencing BBC period drama and Dr. Who; it's the most awesome thing in the world.)
Then there's the--other ones. That I love like stupid and everything, and objectively I know maybe they aren't magical but then there's a three second clip of Richard Armitage brooding in a window wearing a cravat and come the fuck on; I'm so in.
I'm super stupid for these.
Period Romance Montage to Run, performed by Leona Lewis (also includes the Titanic and Anne of Green Gables. Seriously!) I may have bought this song just now.
How Six Period Drama Collides, music performed by Norwegian Recycling, I think?
Period Romance Drama to Life After You, performed by Daughtry (I love this one like you have no idea; I sing along to this one while sniffling. That bit with Thornton staring broodingly out of the window; my God. And Edmund running after Fanny!)
You Wait for Rain - period drama all in the rain. *hands* Seriously. It's All Wet, All Rain, All Period, All the Time. Hello, welcome to my kinks. This one has a theme.
All the Right Moves - period drama dancing! This is the porn of period drama--oh, don't look at me like that. Obviously you haven't seen Pride and Prejudice. Or Emma. Or--well, what did you think the dancing was supposed to symbolize?
Hungry Eyes - ..okay, this is the porn of the period drama. Yeah. Go now. I mean, right now.
Note on this one: find this vidder, someone. This one could be kind of amazing; watch her scene choice and her cuts. I need to look at the rest of her stuff.
One day, I am going to buy a vidder at VVC, hand them a pile of BBC period drama, all the music I don't admit I own, and look really hopeful. Sure, they might kill me later, but oh my God. So worth it.
I have very specialized vid shame. It involves cravats, petticoats, and, um, running in the rain. Bring your judgment. (Or possibly, bring me your recs; going through youtube like this is killing brain cells that could be used admiring men in cravats.)
Here With Me, The Young Victoria, performed by Sarah Brightman - just, IDK, the music and the effects seriously work for me. And the speed. I like things with fast cuts.
Tanglewood Tree from Fingersmith, performed by Chris and Meredith Thompson - I wrote a lot of fic after watching this vid. This makes me want to read the book. A lot.
mardia recs I've Been to a Marvelous Party here. Also located at youtube here
meretricula recs Just a Girl from Much to Do About Nothing here.
serrico recs Lacrymosa, period and not period, here - I just watched this one and it is utterly, utterly gorgeous.
