let's try this again

Teen Wolf Fandom:

Hey fandom - we know you’re busy losing your minds (lolololol) over our new promos, but take a break for a minute so we can ask for your help. We’re in the process of developing ideas for our online after shows, and we’re trying to theme each one differently. They can be anything you want - we’ll be talking with cast and crew about whatever topics you’d like to see them discuss, and it can be anything and everything (from “Latin American Werewolf Mythology” to “bacon”). So think about it and tell us - what are some themes you’d like to see?

“I am a romantic. I’ve had great nights before where just some wonderfully romantic night happens spontaneously, unpredictably. And the next day you try to tell your friends and it just doesn’t cut it. I hope everyone has those experiences where — whether it’s a date that lasted all night or a date that lasted 5 seconds at a train station — moments that were so personal and so special, it was hard to explain to somebody else.”

(EDIT: Now on vimeo. :) Sorry again for the poor video quality!)

So, when I found out Blaine was singing this, I pretty much jumped for joy. I thought it was finally addressing Sadie Hawkins, or his relationship with his dad, or, you know, any of the millions of opportunities for character development they’ve ignored for Blaine this season.

Of course, it wasn’t. Because they didn’t acknowledge any of that.

So, I did it for them. Darren sang this song really wonderfully, and there’s quite a lot that seems to be going through his head in this video. I tried to supplement it as much as I could (the bullying scenes are mainly from Queer as Folk and A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints), but ultimately this is supposed to be a “re-imagining” of the performance. So it’s mostly built around the performance (plus a section I added in that I felt was integral to understanding why he’s singing the song).

I kept in the cheesy beginning, because I don’t care, I love the cheesy beginning. Also, this is the first time I’ve ever edited anything. So, apologies if it sucks. Let me know what you think!
