Welcome back to Fan Video Friday, where we seek to fulfill all your procrastination needs for the last day of the work (and at the same time destroy you with feels/make you never want to hear certain songs again). We made our case for the validity of Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years” when we guested on the Crash Chords Podcast earlier this spring. Yes, this sweeping ballad was originally Edward and Bella’s wedding song…but aside from giving Anna Kendrick more exposure, it’s the one good thing to come out of the Twilight saga. This song means so much more than Edward and Bella and here are some fan videos to prove it.
Amy and Rory – Doctor Who
Because there is no better song for The Last Centurion and the Girl Who Waited. He LITERALLY waited 2000 years for her.
“Together…or not at all.”
Josh and Donna – The West Wing
Because it FELT like a thousand years before these two crazy kids got their shit together and admitted they were madly in love.
Eric and Sookie – True Blood
Because if this song is going to be about Vampires, I’ll take Alexander Skarsgard over RPatz any day. And really the only reason I even WATCH True Blood is that Eric is often naked.
Shout out to our buddy Mindy who requested this pairing and found this video!
Maks and Meryl – Dancing With The Stars
Yes, they are real people. No, I don’t care.
As this season of Dancing With The Stars progressed more and more of my Twitter timeline was drawn into the #ChmerkovskiySpiral as we watched The Big Bad Grumpy Russian and the Ice Princess fall madly in love. It started out innocently enough but by the finale Maks and Meryl had whipped us into the kind of fangirl frenzy that is usually only reserved for the likes of Tom Hiddleston or David Tennant. The way they would dance together, the way they LOOKED at each other, the blatant displays of affection…DWTS has had its share of showmances in the past, but M&M took it to a whole new level. You can’t TELL me they aren’t in love (to the point I started screaming “STOP YOU’LL SCARE THEM” anytime a nosy reporter asked if they were dating). If they are not, someone go ahead and give them Academy Awards right now.
And just taking this opportunity to remind you about this:
Buffy and Angel – Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Basically this song is a prerequisite for any OTP with an otherworldly kind of spin.
Snow White and Prince Charming – Once Upon a Time
Yes, the Charmings are a bit insufferable (I blame it on Goodwin and Dallas ACTUALLY dating for some reason). But their mantra of “I will always find you” is essentially spelled out in the song.
Robbie and Cecilia – Atonement
Because Sage needs her weekly dose of James McAvoy. Sorry for the obnoxious logo in the corner!
Abbie and Ichabod – Sleepy Hollow
I have tried SO HARD not to ship these two. I really have. But I am powerless when it comes to Tom Mison and his rude rude face.
Rose and The Doctor- Doctor Who
Because every song applies to them. We have a 763 song playlist that SAYS SO.
Are you dead from feels? Fear not, dear readers, next week we return to a happy song with Imagine Dragons’ “It’s Time”. Expect lots of ensemble OTP videos! Till next week!
