Welcome to our new series: Fan Video Friday! Because what fangirl hasn’t spent hours upon hours falling down the YouTube Rabbit Hole of Fandom Videos? Plus…it’s Friday and you don’t feel like working today, do you?
This week we spotlight David Tennant’s second favorite song (after “(I’m Gonna Be) 500 Miles” that is), “Fix You” by Coldplay. “Fix You” is the anthem for every angsty OTP . Video requirements include longing looks, tears, running montages, grabby and desperate kisses, and hospital bed vigils. These are typically the couples of your hour long dramas. The couples that have seasons upon seasons of UST before FINALLY getting together. The couples that give you ALL the feels. I’ve pulled a sampling of the best “Fix You” videos for your pleasure and tears. Watch them all or watch the ones specific to your interests. Enjoy!
Meredith and Derek – Grey’s Anatomy
For many many seasons, these two were the DEFINITION of angst. They may be happily married NOW (but according to last night’s finale, we’ve got some rocky waters ahead)…but there will always be natural disasters and rogue gunmen to cause these two some drama. Bonus points for the PERFECT use of the house of candles at the end of this video.
The Tenth Doctor – Doctor Who
Sure we could have used a Ten and Rose video, but when David Tennant’s Doctor is the KING of angst, why not do a tribute to his entire era? Bonus points to the RUDE use of TenToo on “Get what you want but not what you need”.
Booth and Brennan – Bones
Hart Hanson kept these soulmates apart for SIX SEASONS you guys. Angsty McAngesterson. Yes, it took longer for Mulder and Scully to get together, but these two were professing their feelings openly long before they did, so really it was just torture/fear of ruining the show dynamic that kept them apart. And that bitch Hannah.
Mulder and Scully – The X-Files
Ultimate angsty UST-y OTP is ultimate. Quoth Kelly, who is about to start the series, when I showed her this video: “I see I am in for a LOT of Hospital Bedsides.”
Sydney and Vaughn – Alias
These two though.
(You all) Everybody – Lost
I will make Sage watch this show if it is the last thing I do.
The Crawley Clan – Downton Abbey
They are British so they enjoy being miserable and full of angst.
Beth and Daryl – The Walking Dead
Dillon, Texas – Friday Night Lights
It’s made by Jason Katims, so you know there will be tears.
Sherlock and Molly – Sherlock
Short and sweet, but it has that kiss, so.
Sherlock and John – Sherlock
You think I would really do this post without JohnLock?
The Clones – Orphan Black
I really need to catch up on this show.
And that’s it for this week! Join us next Friday for tributes to “Ships in the Night” where we’ll be able to show videos from many of our comedy OTPs!
