I wanted my last post for the Lovely Blog Party to be something fun and lighthearted, so I thought I should share some romantic fanvids that give me all the gooey feelings. It was only after I began searching out and looking through said fanvids that I realized that "fun and lighthearted" might not apply to all of them. :-P A lot of them are nothing if not uber-dramatic and angsty and Very Adolescent Fangirl, if you know what I mean, their great quality notwithstanding.
But I still love them, so I'm still gonna do it. Because I think you'll like some of them too. And because I am a fangirl, after all. :-P
I decided that for this post, I was going to limit myself to one music video per couple, and that I was only going to share videos I hadn't used in a previous post. So, these should all be new. Naturally, there will be spoilers in basically all of these, and there's minor swearing in a few. Watch at your own risk, and all that. :)
Hope you enjoy!
(As an aside, how talented are these YouTubers?! Like, skillz.)

Hardison & Parker - Leverage || "At Last"
Though Parker and Hardison aren't necessarily one of my favorite couples--and I completely understand and respect preferring Eliot and Parker--I do love them, both individually and together; and I was happy to find this video. It's nice and slow-moving and old-timey and highlights the quirkiness and sweetness of their relationship.
Emma & Killian - Once Upon a Time || "Evermore"
Captain Swan set to "Evermore"?!?! Yes, please!!
I really like how this one is done. I don't always love fanvids set to songs from other movies, but this is an example of how it can be executed really well. ;)
Aragorn & Arwen - The Lord of the Rings || "Siuil A Run"
The editor of this one did a great job of matching the highs and lows of the song with clips from the movies. It conveys both the emotion of the song itself and the sweep of the movie really well.
Padme & Anakin - Star Wars || "Rolling in the Deep"
Excessively--one might even say unnecessarily or unhealthily ;)--angsty and negative. But quite well-done, notwithstanding, and satisfactorily pathos-filled for SW fans. :-P
Henry & Danielle - Ever After || "Ships in the Night"
Who doesn't love these two? ;) This song is used in a lot of fanvids, but it does lend itself towards various fandoms. :-P This video will deliver a nice, romantic little bit of nostalgia to your day!
Hook & Tiger Lily - Pan || "Stitches"
I've only watched this movie once, and, while I liked it, it didn't become a favorite or anything. But I really like this music video. These two were really cute, a nice twist on the original story. :)
Han & Leia - Star Wars || "Young and Beautiful"
The lyrics to this one are kind of "eh"--may not all be entirely edifying, what--but the song also works really well for this couple, and the editing is awesome.
Luke & Lorelai - Gilmore Girls || "Piece by Piece"
Awwwwwwww. <3 For all the mistakes these two make, and for all the messed-up relationships they get themselves into, Luke is definitely the one for Lorelai, and their friendship-to-romance arc is really good and sweet (fraught with complications though it later becomes).
Robin & Marian - Robin Hood || "Rewrite the Stars"
THESE TWO. <3 Loves them. This video has grown on me; for some reason, I didn't love it when I first watched it. *snorts at silly self* It's kind of wonderful. You should watch it. :-P

Well, the Lovely Blog Party is over. I really enjoyed making all these posts, but at least you'll (hopefully) get a reprieve from so much romantic nonsense. ;-P Thanks for the fun party, Cordy!
