Now, of course, I am singing a song by Heart...

Are there any scenes in television shows/movies/books&stories/fanfic/fanart/fanvids that haunt you even in mere suggestion?

F'rinstance, I only need to read some words once said by a character in Serenity and I find I want to curl up into a ball and cry. I'm always gutted.

I can't listen to the gorgeous Israel Kamakawiwoʻole version of 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow', or, no joke, I actually do cry. Tears! In a similar vein, I now have a weirdly huge kink for characters saying thank you to each other and always smile when they do so earnestly. It generally doesn't matter which characters, anymore.

Whenever I listen to 'Alone' by Heart, my face splits into the widest grin because of one outstanding Merlin vid.

Have certain scenes or moments stuck with you throughout the years? What do you think it is in particular about them that stayed with you?

The 'Brothers in Arms' sequence in The West Wing episode 'Two Cathedrals'. Some rumpled old journalist has been primed to ask the President an innocuous question but he gets passed over before he can even open his mouth, and he just stands there looking all solemn and dignified while mayhem reigns around him. The message is that he's made his contribution, small and insignificant though it may be, and that for a moment makes him one of the 'brothers in arms'.

There are some episodes of The West Wing where I'm in tears nearly the whole time, actually ...

You know what, I have only seen episodes of The West Wing here and there? It may just be the show I need to mainstream.

That's a very good way of watching it, although there are about 10-12 episodes I try to leave out whenever I do that. OTOH, I can't imagine where you'd ever find the time!!!
