[vid] "The Storm" (Mad Max Fury Road)

fandom: Mad Max Fury Road
characters: Furiosa, Max, the canon-typical supporting cast
music: Of Monsters & Men, "Thousand Eyes"
content notes: lots of quick cuts towards the latter half of the vid (does that actually need to be noted for a fanvid? :) )
summary: Like two fierce winds they meet, intermingling to form a force stronger than either apart.
notes: Originally, I heard this song and went "that's a Furiosa song", but in the course of grabbing footage I realized it was as much about the two of them coming together like winds or weather fronts, intertwining, pushing together to create such a maelstrom that the world will not be the same in their wake... and then, their energy spent, each goes their own way, leaving so many things which had seemed unbreakable shattered behind them. Thus: The Storm.

Undo this storm
Undo this storm
Undo this storm
And wait

I can't control withering wonders
Flowers that lose their shape

I lie awake and watch it all
It feels like thousand eyes
I lie awake and watch it all
It feels like thousand eyes

I'll be the calm
I will be quiet
Stripped to the bone
I wait

No, I'll be a stone
I'll be the hunter
A tower that casts a shade

I lie awake and watch it all
It feels like thousand eyes
I lie awake and watch it all
It feels like thousand eyes
I lie awake and watch it all
It feels like thousand eyes

I am the storm
I am the storm
I am the storm
So wait
