Video: Fringe Exchange Holiday Gift

I took part in a 'Fringe' holiday gift swap - it was fun to fall back in love with that show again! :). But the fandom is tiny, so I thought I'd share it here. The song I chose played in the background one episode. I remember, because that scene - it was so simple, but something about the music and the mood and the characters made me say out loud 'God I love this show...'

That's when I know I'm hooked, 'cause there aren't that many shows that get that reaction out of me. Mostly just LOST, Fringe, Northern Exposure 20 years ago and Trek in all its forms,  I guess.

What I loved about Fringe is that it was so full of heart, but in a very restrained and non-formulaic way. I also loved that in earning his redemption Walter becomes the father none of the Olivias ever had, and saved his son from a cold life of cynicism over his childhood circumstances. This video celebrates a bunch of the chief 'Fringe' ships (romantic, platonic and familial), but that relationship between Peter, Olivia and Walter is absolutely my favorite of them.

I miss them- more than I even thought I would...
