Gift for Wendelah1

Title: The Air that I Breathe
Format: Video
Warnings: None
Note:  This video starts out with natural sound from the show, which is purposefully low background audio from Walter's turntable. The sound will rise to full at about the 30 second mark, just so you know. :).

First, I love this to pieces. I've already watched it three times and I cried. Every. Single. Time. This vid reminds me of why I loved this show so damn much. It's the characters and their relationships: love and friendship and everything in between. That's what the show was about for me and that's what's illustrated so beautifully here. Olivia and Peter. Olivia and Walter. Astrid and Walter. Walter and Peter. Peter and Astrid. Charlie and Olivia. CHARLIE.

The reunion of Peter with his mother from the Other Side. Redverse Lincoln holding Altlivia as she gives birth to Henry. Nina and Philip. September and Walter.

The song is perfect. "The Air That I Breathe" by the Hollies. Definitive version. It's a Walter song, for sure, it was even on his turntable. As it happens, I was listening to it not long ago myself. LOL. So it's a Wendelah song, too. And yes, it's a Fringe song, because in the end, that what it's about for all of these characters, isn't it? Love. "Love is the answer and you know that for sure." Wrong song, but you know what I mean.

Perfect ending, too. With the bridge closing, and Walter saying that he'll miss them all "more that I imagined." Me, too, Walter. Crying again. I LOVE THIS VID. I love our show.
