Disease from sweetestdrain on Vimeo.





Notes: I sort of made this vid on a dare. But I really do love Bill Compton. So there you go. Warning for, well, Bill Compton and all that entails. Spoilers through 3x07 only. I have been sitting on this vid for a while. Thanks to pipsqueaky for all the encouragement and to sisabet for loving Bill as much as I do.

(Oh and, when I showed it to my friends, this vid proved endlessly mashup-able, so stay tuned for variations set to "No Scrubs," "Hungry Like the Wolf," and many more -- most of which are actually BETTER than the original vid. I am not even kidding.) EDIT: You can find the mashups here.

All comments and feedback appreciated!


Feels like you made a mistake
You made somebody's heart break
But now I have to let you go
I have to let you go

You left a stain
On every one of my good days
But I am stronger than you know
I have to let you go

No one's ever turned you over
No one's tried
To ever let you down,
Beautiful girl
Bless your heart

I got a disease
Deep inside me
Makes me feel uneasy baby
I can't live without you
Tell me what I am supposed to do about it
Keep your distance from it
Don't pay no attention to me
I got a disease

Feels like you're making a mess
You're hell on wheels in a black dress
You drove me to the fire
And left me there to burn

Every little thing you do is tragic
All my life, oh was magic
Beautiful girl
I can't breathe

I got a disease
Deep inside me
Makes me feel uneasy baby
I can't live without you
Tell me what I am supposed to do about it
Keep your distance from it
Don't pay no attention to me
I got a disease
I think that I'm sick
But leave me be while my world is coming down on me
You taste like honey, honey
Tell me can I be your honey
Be, be strong
Keep telling myself it that won't take long till
I'm free of my disease

Yeah well free of my disease
Free of my disease

I think that I'm sick
But leave me be while my world is coming down on me
You taste like honey, honey
Tell me can I be your honey
Be, be strong
Keep telling myself it that won't take long till
I'm free of my disease
Yeah well free of my disease
Free of my disease

Did I tell you I haven't even seen True Blood and I still loved this vid? And every mashed up version of it I saw?

Hee! I'm glad you liked it! I ... a lot of people hate Bill Compton. I kind of do too, but I love him. So this is that vid. It actually probably gives you a pretty good idea of what the show is like, except there are characters that are all the way awesome, too. (See icon for Lafayette Reynolds.) You should watch it!

OMG, toooooooo happy to have a Bill vid, and love that you really went there with his Billness. :D :D :D

YAY! I tried to cram in as much Billness as I possibly could, hee. I'm so glad you liked it!

(You're not alone! There are at least three of us counting sisabet!)

I keep changing my mind about what my favorite part is. I think? I think it is when he screams no in fang face.

No. It is the werewolf hand dangling...

NO! I DO NOT KNOW WHAT MY FAVORITE PART IS BUT THERE IS DISMEMBERMENT AND THAT MAKES ME SO PROUD OF YOU!!!!

I think you are far in the lead on dismemberment points. I need to catch up! But YAY, have I mentioned I am really glad you like this vid? You were an inspiration.

I don't like Bill in the least, but I really enjoyed this vid. Was waiting for Lorena to explode on the beat at the end, lol.

Hee! I am glad my vid appeals to even those who dislike Bill. I kinda feel like I disliked him so much in the first couple seasons it came right around to like again? And he was so fucked up in season three that it made me love him just on general principle. But, yeah. I hear ya.

Thanks so much for commenting! (And I will raise you your Lafayette icon with another Lafayette icon! How so awesome, Lafayette.)

Excellent vid! I've been hunting for True Blood vids the past few days and this is definitely my favorite so far! Good work!
