8.) Our first date, where did it take place and what did we do?
we were on opposing teams of a Paintball war. I get a little crazed playing wargames. I like to taunt my victims, I mean opponents, before shooting them. you said you liked the wild look in my eyes, it intrigued you. well, first it terrified you, then it intrigued you. we started dating a week later, after you recovered.
9.) If we hadn’t met, where would you be right now?

big words for someone who was cowering at my feet. so cute!!
I haven’t done a Fanvid Friday in awhile but thanks to a retweet of this video that I saw on Twitter, I couldn’t resist!
See What I’ve Become by MsEleanorShelby
This video is superbly done, I have to say that first and foremost! it’s almost like a show-reel of some of Richard’s most dramatic performances but put together in such a way that it becomes it’s own performance.
The opening scene sets the mood: Thorin opens the door to Erebor, bathed in dusty light with blackness all around. a simple low-key piano rhythm keeps time with the flash of several different character faces. (the voice over is part of the original song here) then a black screen with the words “see what I’ve become”. and the ride begins!
String instruments speed up the music. lightening type effects match drum beats. and we start to hear sound bites from our favorite characters to go along with the poignant scenes chosen.
Guy: you do not speak to me!
Lucas: You destroyed me and then you chose to let me live!
I owe you nothing!
We follow Robin’s arrow as we hear him scream, “Gisborne!” and now everything is stepped up into a climatic frenzy! several recognizable scenes flash before us: Thorin blocking Bilbo’s way with his sword, Lucas breaking down a door, Thornton facing an angry mob, Porter punching Collinson… then the eyes. Thornton’s eyes. Lucas’ eyes. Thorin’s eyes. Guy’s eyes. and as we come back down, we follow the image of footsteps down the hallway.
LOVE-LOVE-LOVE this fanvid!
please hop on over to youtube and give it a “thumbs up”! and be sure to check out her other Richard Armitage fanvid as well, it’s full of Richard’s smiles. it will make you smile, I guarantee it!
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
Porter’s cauterized scar? My dad has a similar one in the exact same spot. My father was drafted into the Vietnam war when he was young. His scar was the result of shrapnel from a landmine. Slivers of metal still work their way through his system now and then, coming up through the skin on various parts of his body; weird.
Dad also likes to kick things when he gets frustrated. Most of the time he just throws things. I share this trait with him myself, sorry to say. We also have the annoying habit of tightening things until they break, and burning food because we want to make sure that it’s done 🙄
Although my parents never separated within their marriage, they did go through a rough spot when I was around Lexi’s age. My Dad’s place of employment shut down and he was without a job for awhile. The stress kicked his binge drinking/PTSD into high gear, which was difficult for me to understand at that age.
I think that adolescent part of me sees the similarities and lives through Lexi a bit, because her Dad was more affectionate than mine was at the time. Luckily time healed our wounds and we have a much better Father-Daughter relationship as adults.
When I hear this song I think of going to the lake with my grandmother and my mother’s younger siblings. sitting on a blanket with my aunt, watching my uncle wrestle with my brother in the water, while drinking Mellow Yellowsoda. though in our neck of the woods, we called it “pop” 😉
this time featuring John Porter and the Song Free by Vast.
I really like the gritty song choice for this one, it goes along perfectly with John’s rebel nature and creates a kick-ass vibe to parallel all the fight scenes. The lyrics emphasize the point that Porter is done following the rules and being kept in his place, and so a lot of the scenes featured are of his no-nonsense actions as he gets the job done.
I like when Porter and Masuku are being thrown through the air in slow-motion and how that instigates the music change. There are then overlapping images of Porter’s face on top of scenes illustrating that John has had a purpose in what he’s doing: Katie’s rescue, being reunited with his family, and what he’s had to endure in the process.
And then we end with the iconic image of Porter driving off into the sunset as a picture taken from the very beginning during the Bratton Extraction, where it all went wrong, is shown alongside.
John is free, he’s redeemed himself and cleared his name.
