I’m Sensing a Theme…

Music & More challenge

29.) a role that makes you frown

could you be more specific? there are so many!



I frowned when Lucas was rejected by Elizabeta and then  jumped off a building.



I frowned when Guy was played by Marian and then stabbed by his conniving sister.

The Gisbornes: they take sibling rivalry to a whole other level
The Gisbornes: they take sibling rivalry to a whole other level


I frowned when Porter’s wife said they were all better off without him and then his head got chopped off.

she's all heart
she’s all heart

I’m sensing a theme here…


I frowned when Standring gave his all to Carol, without concrete results.



I frowned when Thornton proposed to Margaret, with chastisement as his reward.



& I will frown all over the place when I see Thorin next!


music question: a song that makes you sad

Traveling Soldier by the Dixie Chicks

This song is romantic, yet heartbreaking. A young man preparing to go to war, spends a few chaste hours with a sweet teenage waitress. He writes her letters from Vietnam, sharing all his hopes and fears. But then one night at the school football game she hears his name read off the list of local soldiers who wouldn’t be coming home.


Crying all alone under the stands
Was a piccolo player in the marching band
And one name read but nobody really cared
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair


stupid depressing questions…

Fanvid Friday: Lullaby

Lullaby, created by Delicate Blossom and sung by the Dixie Chicks is a nice, soothing multi-character fanvid that I turn to often when I need a smile.

Having Harry and John Standring together in the same video is a treat for me, as you can imagine, but to then add in John Thornton, Monet, Paul Andrews, and Guy, etc. makes this vid really enjoyable! The melody of the song is really nice and when you add in the lyrics, there is a relevance there for a lot of RA fans.

I especially like how the line “life began when I saw your face, and I hear your laugh like a serenade” is illustrated by glimpses of Harry and John Standring. Even though I prefer pre-haircut Standring, that smile goes straight to the heart!

At around the :50 mark though, that soft look of John Thornton’s gives it a run for it’s money! As with all of the fanvids that I like, I enjoy the scenes that are chosen to accompany the lyrics in certain spots. For example:

“How long do you want to be loved? is forever enough, is forever enough?”

first with Harry and Geraldine holding hands on their walk, and then later on when we see Guy kneeling down to propose to Marian.

I appreciate the bedroom scenes chosen too. The ones with Paul convey the closeness and safety between a couple, even when they’re having problems. And Monet is playful, smiling that sweet smile of new love.

This video makes me feel all sappy and happy! I’m going to go watch it again…

and again…and again.

“cause I’m never, never giving you up”
