So, I woke up early (well okay, 10:30 is barely early, but it's early for a Saturday morning!) and came online, did all the mandatory stuff, mail-checking, etc.
Guess what I found in my inbox?

Dang. That was one of my favourite videos. And well, they might as well remove all my other videos, if that's the case. What about all the other fan-videos out there? I'm not talking about TVB fanvids, but what about other the other fandoms? I see tons of Grey's Anatomy MerDer vids, lots of One Tree Hill vids, Heroes, whatever.
Oh well. 56,599 views and 93 comments later, I guess it's okay in the end, knowing that people did kinda like it for the time that it was around.
