The story behind the video is that these girls are fae, and each pretends to be mortal to the other so they can live and love normally together. It poses the idea that if you knew a relationship could be infinite, the relationship would lose meaning. It’s important to recognise with the times changing so quickly and social media bringing about a new age of relationships that feel no sense of duty to last; this being a lesbian relationship adds another dimension to the persecution of it. A doomed relationship is still one worth pursuing, however, for the short term good of the people involved. In the long term, these fae will be driven apart, but they will have the experience and the memories, and that is what matters.
