I, as many people in the world, love the UK show, Skins.
But unlike many people, I really don’t know much about the fandom and ships aside from small bits i’ve accidentally gleamed while drudging through music videos.
Effy Stonem and James Cook, however, seem to be a major if not controversial ship amongst many fans. Now as someone who has more or less pulled themselves out of fandom, I will say that, as a viewer, I really enjoy them as a couple because they embody a lot of the dark and twisted, taboo nature of seeking solace in someone just as broken, if not more broken, than yourself.
But this isn’t about my thoughts on their relationships, this is about a video that I think stands a level above the rest. Paired up with one of my favorite songs, dazzleme7 has done an impeccable job at editing in a style that feels both gritty yet well thought out.
Enjoy and make sure to check out Skins if you haven’t!
