lyrics:

Today must have been one of the strangest days
Some would say that you won't find love that way
The best days are not planned by common sense, by lack of time
You just happen to be where everything feels fine

It's a new secret I have found

From today, change my priorities around
I'm no longer in command and people say
I'm off solid ground and you're to blame
They don't understand, people never do
It's confusing, I don't expect them to

I'ts a new secret I have found

Joan!! Lovely vid. I really like the softness of the music because it really matches how Joan and Sherlock's growing friendship sneaks up on them slowly, often shown best in these tiny little quiet moments.

Aurgh so lovelyyy!!!! Hah, I like how you included the Irene bust. But I love at ~1:10 how they literally rise with the music, and I like how you segue from people who 'don't understand' to people who do. And yes, good ending!

Yay for Elementary vids!

I love your use of Joan's POV here, and especially your choice for the final scene.

Wonderful! I loved this vid -- you totally made me feel like this song was written for Joan. Your use of everyday moments occasionally punctuated by the Big Moments was perfect for the song, for the slow, careful development of Joan's character, and for the show overall. Intercutting the bust with Moriarty was a stroke of genius.

Beautiful vid -- left my heart soaring.

I love the way their relationship develops in the show, and this vid really captures the slow sweetness of it for me.
