In my travails around the world of talking about stuff on the internet, I’ve noticed this song popping up again and again in fanvids. It’s an reasonable choice, as it 1) was written for a movie; b) has nonsense lyrics, which allow a more free-form approach to vidding; and lastly) says “I’m in love” over and over, just to drive your support of this One True Pairing home. Some YouTubers (those kids today) have even pointed out the overuse in their “descriptions”: “Yeah, I know the song is totally overused, but the beat fit so well!

Here are some examples I hand-picked for YOU:

# Legolas/Gimli (LOtR), because if there’s one thing the internet is good at, it’s dwarf!sex;


# Ron/Hermione (Harry Potter), featuring clips from the early movies when they were too young to fall in love accidentally or otherwise;


# Harry/Hermione (Harry Potter), poor misguided kid;


# Jared Padalecki/Jensen Ackles (Supernatural/Real Life), double creepy because a) RPF and b) they play brothers on the show;


# Han/Leia (Star Wars Old Skool), a classic example of the titular phenomenon;


# Mario/Peach (Nintendo), to which I say “must we?”;


# Mohinder/Sylar & Nathan/Peter (Heroes/The Murderer &or Incest Lover Club);
removed from webternets

# Dana/Alice (The L Word), another true Accident;
embedding disabled

# and of course Jim/Pam (The Office US).
