Ça Plane Pour Moi

summary: This is Lt Col John Sheppard. He is your commanding officer. Trust him!
notes: There are many, MANY fabulous vids out there about John, but almost all of them focus on the guilt and darkness in his character - so I thought it was high time that someone made a vid about the other side of Lt Col John Sheppard, and showed him up as the ridiculous dorkface he really is. I mean, seriously, look at the guy - how is he the head of military operations in a secret base in another galaxy? How? This is the guy who climbs the tower because 'Batman did it all the time', who frequently quotes from geeky movies, and whose summary of his job is 'I fought a scary monster. It's what I do best.' I have a personal crack theory that John wanted to be an action hero starring in Hollywood blockbusters, before joining the airforce in a fit of pique after being continually cast as the wacky sidekick. But that's a story for another day. Warning: contains high doses of JOHN'S FACE.

The song is in French, and consists entirely of slang and silly phrases. 'Ça Plane Pour Moi' roughly translates as 'that works for me'. The original lyrics and a pretty good translation can be found here, if you're interested, but I have mostly ignored them, apart from when really obvious words stood out.

Thank you to [personal profile] such_heights for the beta and for appreciating John's face with me!

summary: Why do I do the dumbest things for you?
notes: I made a vid! On my own! But it would never have happened had I not seen [personal profile] settiai's absolutely amazing and adorable Amy/Rory vid You Told The Drunks I Knew Karate (go watch it!....I apologise for stealing the song). It would also never have happened if the lovely [livejournal.com profile] 1ightning had not introduced me to this wonderful fandom way back in October, and squee'd with me week after week until I was hooked. And finally, it would never have happened if [personal profile] such_heights, who is a truly marvellous human being, did not have the patience of a SAINT, and not only taught me from scratch how to vid, but dealt calmly with each and every one of my technical problems, beta'd the vid, and listened ENDLESSLY to my flailings. So thank you all of you! ♥

Lyrics

I am drunk and on a ladder
Not the smartest way to start my night
You said I'd conquer my vertigo
That was a lie, that was a lie, that was a lie

And when we got up to the roof
You opened a little flask of gin
Like idiots we both fell asleep there
Until the sun came up again

I do the dumbest things for you
Why do I do the dumbest things for you?
I almost broke my collar bone
I didn't care, you were the most exciting thing I'd ever known

We both went out to the party
Down a long, great western road
You told the drunks I knew karate
That was a lie, that was a lie, that was a lie

They chased us through the city center
They chased us out to the east end
We had to hide behind the supermarket
Until the sun came up again

I do the dumbest things for you
Why do I do the dumbest things for you?
I would be safer on my own
I didn't care, you were the most exciting thing I'd ever known

And we just missed the last bus home
So we walked it fueled by adrenaline
And when I said I could do it all again
That was a lie, that was a lie, that was a lie

Your plans to make it bigger and conquer
Would put Napoleon to shame
I'm in a coma on the sofa
Until the sun goes down again

I do the dumbest things for you
Why do I do the dumbest things for you?
I would be safer on my own
I didn't care, you were the most exciting thing I'd ever known

I do the dumbest things for you
Why do I do the dumbest things for you?
I would be safer on my own
I didn't care, you were the most exciting thing I'd ever known
