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?

My favourite vid of all time was a Farscape video to Let Me Entertain You - now, I already loved the song but now every time I hear it it's forever connected to Farscape. Epic joys.

This is kinda tangentially linked - but the moon landing fucking kills me these days. I never used to go to pieces over it but now I just...start weeping. It's embarrassing. (Brought to you by the fact that we rewatched The Dish on Saturday for the first time in years and couldn't stop leaking out of my eyes at the end.)

A good fic+vid combo is Freedom Is Just Another Word For Nothing Left To Lose - I watched the vid, then read the fic, and then watched the vid again and there's a line Lim picked out "and each year another flower grows" and within context I just. Wept.

I'm trying to think of some happy associations. Um - the old Thames TV theme instantly makes me think excellent cartoons are coming my way, thus joy. Also! I discovered on Saturday night that I've retained a lot more of Footrot Flats: A Dog's Tail Tale - and the sheer simple joy that I get from Slice of Heaven ties into that.

I'm sure there's more I'm not remembering.

Me too. And now I have that song stuck in my head. So happy. :D

♥ Since you must hear that song a lot (it plays frequently here, still), you must have lovely Farscape thoughts a lot too. I am currently rewatching Farscape. No Braca yet, but looking forward to him.

I get weirdly weepy over all kinds of historical events. Totally out of the blue, too. It's a bit of a problem.

I don't think I knew there was a Freedom vid?
