I’m watching Generation Kill again, even though it depresses the shit out of me, because it’s a much better film/series than Stop Loss, which I sat through the other night to grab screencaps and clips of JGL in uniform for Superception purposes (he’s a glorious woobie, but otherwise it had more gratuitous melodrama than a Lifetime movie).
… anyway, because it’s on my mind, when the Godfather stated during the briefing that, “Maintaining grooming standards is mission-critical,” all I could think of was, “That’s the best title for an Arthur fic ever, either that or a line he snarks back at Eames about twenty times a job.”
Sooooo… oddly enough this story starts with Cally. Who showed me an awesome vid about BoyKing Sam set to a song sung by Maynard James Keenan. Now, either of these things can obliterate my ovaries independently — in concert, it just plain wasn’t fair. Ovaries splattered against my kidneys, I have reverted to pre-pubescent Veruca Salt state and decided “I want one.”
But of course, my story is the Superception Sam-Arthur thing and even though I know a LOT of music, it took me awhile to find one that works with them. I found it eventually, of course, because I’m obsessive, but the great joy was that Seu Jorge had found it first. I am speaking of David Bowie’s Life on Mars which Seu Jorge transformed into a beautiful song about roughly the same emotions using the same chords, notes, and rhythms, but completely different Brazilian Portuguese lyrics. Which, along with the acoustic guitar and the general feel, fit the Sam/Arthur at Stanford, Arthur POV better than Mr. Bowie’s original, absolutely no insult intended to either version intended.
Of course, I don’t speak Portuguese, much less any of the Brazilian dialects, but I looked at the literal translations and a few idomatic translation attempts on the internet (is it the future or the subjunctive, is he doing a Hamlet “to be or not to be” third person abstract that’s actually first person personal or does he just hate conjugating verbs?) before deciding to meld them around Arthur’s character and take a little poetic license in my translation back into English. After all, I’m taking my example from Senhor Jorge himself - translating Bowie straight into Portuguese just wasn’t going to work. I ran my telephone-lyric-poem past Lass, who has much more translation experience than I do, and came up with a set of subtitles I rather like. (I think we’re already up to three derivative works and I haven’t even touched a frame of video yet).
I’ve now gone through the song and matched my subtitles up to the time (by millisecond) of the Portuguese lines in my copy of the song (the Amazon mp3download). Now, this being my very firstest ever attempt at vidding, ever, I think I’ve done sufficient due diligence to put out my first cries for “HAAAALLLPPP! I’ve bitten off more than I can chew, but I’ve got a pretty poem/song thing for people to help show me how to pick out video bits (mostly from “The Lookout” and “Stop Loss” for Arthur, for Sam, anything where he’s young, crying, and or creepy shit is going on - a lot of season one and any of the Colin flashbacks) and then throw subtitles on top, and then overlay the song for the audio.
So, if there’s anyone feeling game, let me know.
Seriously unfortunate considering you basically made Sam/Arthur my Sam crossover-OTP. (I would volunteer, but alas, I don’t have photoshop.)
Awww… thanks. But I love knowing (even though I retain my admiralship in the Eames/Arthur fleet) that somebody out there is shipping Sam and Arthur as hard as I do sometimes. They just give me such emooooooceans, and then I try to write Stanford-era fluff with them and somehow there winds up being tentacles. I blame Cally.

Summary: Everyone needs their secrets, Arthur knows that, but there’s something huge he’s missing here and without it, Sam’s a puzzle he can’t quite solve.
