eruthros: Delenn from Babylon 5 with a startled expression and the text "omg!" (B5 - Delenn OMG)
I'm going to give the context at the end of the post; wait for it.

[livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings and I were watching different tv for the yuletide vid. I watched Jeremiah because I'm a B5 fan and thus pretty good at figuring out tropes in jms source, but I was having trouble finding anything we could use -- I sent a lot of hopeful email about plot developments that surely, any day now, would lead to hugging. And then! Success! About halfway through, I sent her this email:

Also, I have attached a touching scene, from when Jeremiah is captured by one of the remnants of the US government, who are like "we will take back this country from anarchy by violence! and killing people with the virus as a scare tactic!" And Devon knows how the virus works, so the evil President and General torture Jeremiah so's Devon will give in, and then Devon is like "I can't hold out! I've lost everything else!" and Jeremiah is all "we can save the world just by saying no." Also he is topless. Then they cuddle.

Here's a little clip from that scene. Watch it first.

watched it? click here, unless you're planning to watch Jeremiah later, in which case this is a huge spoiler )

I found a new fandom when I was watching yuletide stuff. Well, I found a lot of new fandoms, but this one is important and I must share it with you.

Below, you will find a song from the movie Sholay. The song features Jai and Veeru, two thieves who love each other and run around stealing things for fun. The song is just -- so perfect, it cheers me up when I am sad. I can watch it over and over and over.

lyrics below the cut )

Jai and Veeru love each other! They ride through the countryside together! They are best friends forever! THEY ARE NOT TWO! I love them so much.

I may have *cough* clipped the whole scene to high-quality avi because it makes me so happy, so if you'd also like to have something to cheer you up when you're down, drop me a line at eruthros at livejournal dot com.

PS: the movie has a sad ending. If you're bad at sad endings, and thinking of watching the movie, let me know and I'll spoil you.

PPS: the only thing that made me sad about putting Sholay in the vid was that The Motorcycle Diaries isn't a yuletide fandom, because Sholay and the Motorcycle Diaries would have looked so pretty together.
