"you gave me the best of me...
so you'll give you the best of you..."
This amv. Where do I even begin with it. Hmmm. Honestly, this amv is very special to me, because it's something that I've wanted to create for a very long time. When this song came out, it just hit me really bad, and I was honestly in tears after hearing the lyrics the first time. After that, I just knew this song was going to be the one for this amv. And now here we are, after having this idea for almost a year.
If I'm being honest, I wrote this super cheesy description before this one. I basically said everything I wanted to say but it didn't feel like enough. And it made me cringe over myself xDD The description felt too serious and I just wasn't comfortable with it. So I hope this less serious one is okay for you all, I apologise if it ruins the meaning c':
This amv is for you. Yeah, you, sitting there after having watched this amv and wondering what on earth caused me to make such a long and detailed amv, and why the hell I'm saying this is dedicated to you. Like I said, I wrote a whole cheesy paragraph about that before, but I hated it, so here's what I decided to write it as instead.
This amv is dedicated to each and every one of you. I've been in this community long enough to see numerous people put themselves down, stress themselves out and quit because they think they aren't good enough. And I hate it. It frustrates me more than any of you will ever know, believe me. I want to make everyone happy. Which I know sounds hella cheesy as is. But I mean it. Nothing makes me happier, than seeing my friends and those around me happy. It genuinely makes me want to cry when I see you all put yourselves down. Because you are all such amazing people. I don't think any of you could ever understand just how much I truly believe that. But I want you all to be aware of it. So that's why I wanted to make this amv.
Whenever you feel sad, whenever you feel useless, whenever you hate yourself; please remember this amv and this message. You are not worthless. You are an amazingly talented human, and I will fight anyone who says otherwise. I mean it. I didn't just make this amv for fun. The reason I was able to finish it, is because all of you mean so much to me. So I wanted to give something back to you all, to thank you for making my life as bright as it is today. You all support me so much, so I want you all to know that I love you so much. And that I don't ever want you guys to feel terrible about yourselves.
So please, accept this small token of my gratitude to you all, and know that no matter who you are or where you are, that someone loves you for who you are. And you don't have to change for anyone but yourself. Honestly, the lyrics of this song say it all. Ily all ♥️
Dedication to all my studios, because they allowed me to meet so many amazing people, and I can never thank them enough for that :3
Aaand finally, I also decided to enter this into Matsuricon, since I finished it in time to enter ^-^ So wish me luck for that~
