So I had the idea to do a Karmy vid to this song after watching S1 of Faking It but I had another vidsong I wanted to do more so I made that instead. I saved this song just in case I ever wanted to vid Faking It again and when I went through a similar experience last year, all the emotions of the song came back to me. When I watched Supergirl, I strongly connected to the Sanvers plot because of it and it gave me the idea to make a vid to this song connecting the two falling for your friend plots. It was an emotional vid to make but also cathartic and it came together fairly easily in terms of making the two shows work together since I could see the patterns in both sources. It was a bit of a struggle trying to visually show the layered lyrics at the end but fun to work with opacity and color a bit. I wanted to show the happiness and agony of this common queer girl experience and how TV shows can help us relate to and process our own life experiences.

I haven't seen S2 of Supergirl or any of Faking It, but I watched this because I have definitely lived (aspects of) the experience of the tag line! And I loved it. <3<3<3
