lyrics:

Take me home, take me home
I know I'm at the place to be
Take me home, take me home
You deserve a girl like me
Come on I know somewhere
You can unwind
We can just disappear
Now's the time
Take me home, take me home
Only fair I get my way
Take me home, take me home
Oh it's going to happen anyway
I know what's good for you
Don't pass me by
I will look after you
You'll be fine
I'm in heaven I'll show you heaven it's so much heaven
Let's make a move
Let's leave this world behind
I know you approve by the look in your eyes
I'm in heaven I'll show you heaven It's so much heaven
Take me home take me home
I will show you where to walk
Take me home take me home
Baby let the people talk
We'll get away from here
I'm reading your mind
We can just disappear
Now's the time
I'm in heaven, I'll show you heaven
Take me home
Oh, take me home
Oh, take me home
In this moment
One night with you
All alone with nothing to lose
Let's make a move
Let's leave this world behind
I know you approve by the look in your eyes
I'm in heaven I'll show you heaven it's so much heaven
Take me home, take me home
Now's the time to follow me
Take me home
Come and live what ought to be
Take me home take me home

Squee! I love the big femmeslash couples in fandom.

I love how you categorized the clips together to show of similar their journeys were and how different.

Oooh, look at all the exciting femslash! ;) This is a really fun and well put-together vid.

Set your femslash goggles to maximum

Not that I ever not want to watch your vids, but if there was any part of any summary that was going to draw me in, this was it!

The vid was utter perfection, and sexy fun. I loved the comparisons between all the pairings, but I particularly loved your inclusion of the Willow/Tara moments, since they guided me to what you were trying to get across with each couple. And this is yet another reason I should watch LotS, so yes! Greatness all around!

Here via sophinisba's rec.

Now, I'm pretty much guaranteed to love most celebratory femslash vids, especially when I'm familiar with most of the source material. But I really wanted to say how much I appreciate this as a multi-fandom vid that focuses on a limited number of stories (6) and lets us keep coming back to them and see the relationships at different moments and with more complexity. A lot of multis have so many sources that the individual clips and sources don't have that much power compared to the overall narrative flow of the vid, but I liked that you did something different here. This is the kind of vid that sends you back to the source (or makes me want to hunt down shows I haven't seen).

I also found this vid made me think a lot about text and subtext and how different sources give the pairings more or less emphatic support in their visuals. Because we are largely trained not to see sexual tension or connections at all between women or to minimize it when we do (in contrast to what fandom trains its members to do with male-male relationships), femslash vids have a different burden on them, and have to guide the viewer toward a shipping interpretation. I think that's what you're doing with Willow and Tara, as the commenter above notes--and it was especially nice to see a canon couple included.

Amy, I'm in love with this. It reminds me that I need to re-watch Firefly wearing my slash goggles, stat. Also, I had no idea that Kara and Kat had that kind of chemistry -- that demands a re-watch, too!
