See the vid here.

She says I smell like safety and home

I named both of her eyes 'Forever' and 'Please don’t go'

I could be a morning sunrise all the time, all the time yeah

This could be good, this could be good

And I can’t change, even if I tried

Even if I wanted to

And I can’t change, even if I tried

Even if I wanted to

My love, my love, my love, my love

She keeps me warm, she keeps me warm

I’m not crying on Sundays, I’m not crying on Sundays

My love, my love, my love, my love

She keeps me warm, she keeps me warm

Aw! They're so sweet together! [personal profile] grrlpup watched it with me and she was sniffling by the end. (Me, I had a great big smile on my face.)

Such beautiful use of those looks they're forever giving each other -- Wil's great big eyes! Vivian's cat-with-the-canary smiles! -- and I loved that you included the thumbs-up from the mothers. (And I'm just as happy you skipped over the sourpusses at the final dance: this is a video to keep one warm!)

And I adore that you took this lesbian anthem and repurposed the line "I can't change even if I tried," away from an external protest about society's homophobia, and instead reworked it to be an internal, intimate plea between them, about all the everything of what it takes to negotiate a relationship. Wil spends so much of the movie stuck, unable or unwilling to be more available to Vivian, but also desperately wanting to rise to what Vivian requires, and the tension you created between "unable to change, even if I tried" and "(but) she keeps me warm" draws that out beautifully. The intricacies of negotiating a relationship is so much more compelling to me than the grind of dealing with homophobia, and I'm so pleased you took it in this direction, rather than the other.

I keep going back and rewatching it in the hopes of being able to say more cogent things, but I keep getting to the end and finding that once again I have drifted off into a happy smush of awwww. Which is a very fine place to be. :-)

Thank you so much, anonymous vidder! This was a lovely present to wake up to!

OMG AWWWWWWW!!!! THIS IS SO CUTE THAT I AM REDUCED TO TALKING IN ALL CAPS ABOUT MY FEELINGS! Okay, I'm good. I've never seen it but you totally won me over and I absolutely love how you framed it with the dancefloor scene and then made it so meaningful when they came together. I loved their loved ones giving them thumbs up too! Perfect use of song and this vid just makes me really happy :D

AW VIVIAN AND WIL. I love this whole thing, but my favorite moment may be the use of the thumbs-up at the end.

I love this, I love how sweet it is without being overly sentimental--it captures the feeling of their struggle, but it's unapologetically happy. AND THE MOMS :DDD

This is stunning, Saving Face is one of my favorite movies and I had never thought that it would be popular enough to get a fanvid. I teared up by how beautiful this was (the thumbs up!).

I don't know the source, but this vid got to me immediately. To borrow from the lyrics, warm and patient are the exact right words to describe it. Really lovely.
