(The picture is actually of my eyes so I guess that belongs to me :))

Words: 767

Pairing: Steve Rogers x Female Reader

Warnings: Fluff, Dancing, Reader wearing only Steve’s shirt and Steve checking her out, Also I think there’s like one swear word

Summary: You’ve always had mixed feelings about your eye color. But Steve loves you, his one and only Brown Eyed Girl.

A/N: So I was inspired by Van Morrison’s song, “Brown Eyed Girl”, and also seeing my eyes in the sunlight. The reader’s feelings towards her eye color are based on how I feel/felt about my eyes. This one’s for all my brown eyed beauties out there! (For those of you who don’t have brown eyes, your eyes are beautiful too!!). I hope you guys enjoy!


Brown Eyes.

Some people love ‘em.

Others hate 'em.

You had a memory of telling your parents that you wished you had blue or green eyes. You had said that yours were too boring. You remembered how they laughed and said to be happy with your eyes. That there were some people who couldn’t even see the color of their eyes because theirs didn’t work the way they were supposed to.

So you just stopped mentioning it.

Through your teenage years you slowly began to think that they might be pretty, but maybe it was just the eye makeup talking.

You still felt insecure.

But then you met Steve.

La Da Dee: The Lost Pop-Up Book

La Da Dee (PMV) was always planned to be a full, three+ minute video. But, once the shorter version was released, I knew the full version would need to be worth it. It really needed to be an upgrade, rather than just more of the same.

I figured that would be satisfied by two things: An emotional climax earned and built up to by the rest of the video, and a visual climax that did something way beyond what had been done already. The emotional climax would be the reveal of Shining Oaks, and that would mostly be sold by Heir’s wonderful teary Twilights. The visual climax, however, would be my job. There were certainly times I questioned if I was contributing my fair share to this project, so I wanted an awe-inspiring contraption that made people go ‘Whoa’ as it opened up.

I envisioned a pop-up book. Everything to that point was ponies on strings against backgrounds. The moment the 3D plane really opened up, with elements popping up in the foreground and dwarfing the ponies… that was what I wanted to capture. The moment it became more than strings and paper.

But…

It wasn’t working out. It still felt pretty much as flat as everything that came before it. I imagined towering foreground elements creating a crazy sense of scale, but two lightposts didn’t much accomplish that…

Also, I thought I would just sort of… figure out how pop-up books worked, I guess?? I didn’t. When it came time for the page to turn to the Everfree scene, I couldn’t manage to get all the trees in I wanted. Turns out you need lots of space, for one, and with those ponies hanging there…

As one of the prologue animations implies, I lost the whole pop-up book when my hard drive crashed, so I just did something totally new. Keeping the 3D plane idea but losing the page-flipping aspect, I was left with a diorama. Pulling the camera out into the scene, rather than the scene simply being revealed via what was essentially a curtain going up, helped it feel much more 3D. The taxi ponies also helped created more depth, even if they did end up being yet another “one more thing…” for poor Heir.

Ultimately, I think the Shining Oaks scene ended up being both the emotional and visual climax, which is how things should be, really. But at least the final diorama scene ended up much closer to the ‘Whoa’ effect I was going for than the pop-up book was shaping up to be.

Tonight in Sam Plays The Ukulele

There is nothing in my musical experience that has ever been more satisfying than nailing every sha la la la in Brown Eyed Girl. 

SHA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA DEE DAH! 

Although I will say being able to play and sing the entire Road To Morrow from memory is pretty close second. 

Someday I hope to top both of these by learning to transition into and out of the B major chord flawlessly. It’s gonna take a while.
