I went with your song suggestion because I love Sarah McLachlan and the song really fits in my opinion. I really hope you enjoy this.
Vid request:
Three songs that have always said Laura/Lee to me: Here's the thing, I'd love to see more L/L vids, but I can't think of a song that screams Them to me. I've been listening to Sarah McLachlan quite a lot recently and I think the sentiments, feelings, and moods she expresses fit them quite nicely. The song 'Push' is a favorite and though I originally envisioned it as a Archie/Horatio song, I think it fits L/L nicely too. Also Sarah's song 'I Love You', though I think it would produce a more bittersweet vid.
Generally, the type of music I'd like is: No rap, dance, hard rock, or country. Alternative, acoustic, pop, standards ('Someone to Watch Over Me' is one of my all time favorite songs) are all good.
Other things (a mood, a plotline or ep focus, a favourite scene) that would be awesome: A relatively upbeat mood would be good. I love their interaction in the mini (see my icon for one of my favorite scenes), 'Resistance' (the physical closeness between them in the brig), and the bit in 'Home Pt2' where he's looking at her, smiling, and clapping - I'd love it if that was included. :)


Lyrics

Every time I look at you the world just melts away
All my troubles all my fears dissolve in your affections
You've seen me at my weakest but you take me as I am
And when I fall you offer me a softer place to land

You stay the course you hold the line you keep it all together
You're the one true thing I know I can believe in
You're all the things that I desire, you save me, you complete me
You're the one true thing I know I can believe

I get mad so easy but you give me room to breathe
No matter what I say or do 'cause you're to good to fight about it
Even when I have to push just to see how far you'll go
You wont stoop down to battle but you never turn to go

You stay the course you hold the line you keep it all together
You're the one true thing I know I can believe in
You're all the things that I desire, you save me, you complete me
You're the one true thing I know I can believe

Your love is just the antidote when nothing else will cure me
There are times I cant decide when I cant tell up from down
You make me feel less crazy when otherwise I'd drown
But you pick me up and brush me off and tell me I'm OK
Sometimes thats just what we need to get us through the day

You stay the course you hold the line you keep it all together
You're the one true thing I know I can believe in
You're all the things that I desire, you save me, you complete me
You're the one true thing I know I can believe
You're all the things that I desire, you save me, you complete me
You're the one true thing I know I can believe

You have made me sooooo happy! =) I love it! And you'd probably appreciate more detailed feed back, but I was actually on my way to bed and thought I'd do a quick check for updates and now I have such pleasent images to go to sleep on. ;-) I will say I thought you put the footage of the two over Elosha's body and the stand off on Colonial One in KLG to excellent use. They were already striking images, but they work extremely well with the lyrics here. And you used the clapping! I am such a sucker for that shot of Lee. Thank you so much for this. Hopefully, I'll have more coherent things to say later. :)

Oh my word, that was so lovely. The song fits it beautifully (Im a big McLachlan fan), expressing a mood it's rare to find twinned with L/L. Wonderful work, and I like that the lyrics can be seen from both the Laura and Lee perspectives. *sigh* It's put a big smile on my face.

would it be possible for you to upload this again? the YSI link has expired, and i've been trying all day today to download it, but megaupload hates romania and i can't download anything from there.

thanx... :D

I'm finally getting a chance to see the other Fixathon entries and I loved your vid! You did a great job with the song (kudos to asta on picking it); you illustrated the companionship and bond between them very well. I just love how gentle it is, yet still true to them.
