I made a Pushing Daisies vid! It premiered this evening at Vidukon! Everyone was incredibly delightful about it and I was, as ever, super awkward.

fandom: Pushing Daisies
characters: Ensemble! Ned, Chuck, Emerson, Olive, Lilly, Vivian, Simone, Randy, Digby, Pigby and one or two others
music: Ne Me Quitte Pas by Regina Spektor
summary: The truth is that there are a lot of people like you, us, with strange hobbies or talents or gifts and we try to hide it because we’re afraid that it makes us seem weird or turn people off, but that’s a mistake. What makes me unique has bought every person I love into my life.

Oh, this show. <333 It brings such joy to my life! I am absolutely and completely in love with Ned the Piemaker. It is MOST inconvenient that he happens to be fictional. Chuck, meanwhile, nestles in the deepest part of my soul reserved for adorable, weird, optimistic social misfits, who love reading and dreaming and making the world a better place.* Emerson is simply GLORIOUS, and I enjoy his personal brand of long-suffering sarcasm immensely ('Now where did I put that rat's ass I could give?') And tiny, spiky, big-hearted Olive, who deserves so much happiness. As do Lilly and Vivian and all the rest of this ridiculous cast of characters.

There are not many Pushing Daisies vids out there, alas - my favourites are Le Manege, Modern Nature, Angel With An Attitude and, of course, Can't Touch This. Let me know if you know of others! But all of these focus primarily on the adorableness of Ned-and-Chuck. The show would not be what it is without Emerson, Olive, the Aunts, even Digby, so I thought they deserved a vid too - and the first time I heard this song, it just sounded like Pushing Daisies.

Like so many of my favourite stories, Pushing Daisies a tale about the families we create for ourselves, about overcoming personal barriers to help your friends, and about learning to accept - and even embrace - each others weirdnesses. What a good show. <333

*See also: Willow, Kaylee, Luna, Rapunzel, Amelie...and others. There is a a vid that exists in my head for these girls, and one day I shall make it. But it is the vid of my heart and soul, and I'm scared it will never be as good as I need it to be.

Lyrics

Down on Bowery they lose their
Ball-eyes and their lip-mouths in the night
And stumbling through the streets they say
Sir, do you got a light?
And if you do then you're my friend
And if you don't then you're my foe
And if you are a deity of any sort
Then please don't go

Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ah ah ah ah Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas

And down on Lexington they're wearing
New shoes stuck to aging feet
And close their eyes and open
And they'll recognize the aging street
And think about how things were right
When they were young and veins were tight
And if you are the ghost of Christmas Past
Then won't you stay the night?

Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ah ah ah ah Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas

Down in Bronxy-Bronx the kids go
Sledding down snow-covered slopes
And frozen noses, frozen toes
The frozen city starts to glow
And yes, they know that it'll melt
And yes, the know New York will thaw
But if you are a friend of any sort
Then play along and catch a cold!

Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ah ah ah ah Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas

I love Paris in the rain
I love Paris in the rain
I love, I love, in the rain

I love Paris in the rain
I love Paris in the rain
I love, I love, in the rain

Oh I love, I love, in the rain
Oh I love, I love, in the rain
Oh I love, I love, in the rain
