recipe for me [sanders sides animatic]


There are shouters and murmurers
Loan sharks and burglars Who’s good or bad, who’s to say?
Some are lost, some are searchers Some are givers, some are earners
But why did they all end up that way? Is it nature at play or is it nurture?
Is the teacher to blame or is the learner? I’m all at sea, I’m no authority on anything
but me I couldn’t tell you why I am who I’ve become
But I can tell you the parts that make me up And you can calculate the sum I’ll impart to you what I believe would be the
recipe for me Water
First things first You need a great deal of water to make me
Sixty liters is roughly what you need It accounts for sixty-five percent of my being
And cells My body’s composed of trillions and trillions
of cells Performing an assortment of missions
And it’s important to mention that they house my DNA
Which makes me myself There’s an ebb and a flow
I grow then I see changes There are rewrites, losses, gains and rearrangements
It’s all much more uncertain than I thought it would be
Who knew there’d be so many ways to be me Stories, audience or presenter
And scores of stories over a time A slew of silly videos I shared online
And journals full of narratives I wrote at age nine
And still I continue to write because I have more dreams to fulfill
Tales I hoped to tell when I was younger Ideas that I haven’t made yet but I will
I’ll find my way with my will There’s an ebb and a flow
I grow then I make changes There are rewrites, losses, gains and rearrangements
I’m so much more uncertain than I thought I would be
Who knew there’d be so many ways to be me Eggs
You may laugh and that’s great Your smiles are what make my day
My self-worth’s fragile like an egg When it breaks it’s tough to put together
again And salt
A pinch of salt in my wounds When my friends have had enough of me It doesn’t help that I’m lacking subtlety
When I drop hints that I crave their company Alone it’s hard to console myself
When I feel so alone I feel like I disappear
If I don’t shout “I’m here!” If I don’t make my presence known
And if people see me here And find my face unclear
Can I help them to see me better? I know I can’t foresee the weather
So will they accept me now or ever? Who knows
I hope so But I’m good enough
Whatever I face I can rest assured that better days await
The path to happiness isn’t a race I’ll let my heart beat at its own pace
Sunshine Happy and bright
It nurtures the earth with its light Its beaming smile helps buds to flower
I’ll take a dash of that for when friends feel sour
And rainbows A light shines through
And every hue is on display Save a pinch of that for a rainy day
And use it when the storm clouds go away There’s an ebb and a flow
I grow so I make changes There are rewrites, losses, gains and rearrangements
I’m so much more uncertain than I thought I would be
But I can see there’s no wrong way to be me Now I see there’s no wrong way to be me
And I know putting this recipe to paper is unwise
All of the ingredients are changing all the time
I know putting this recipe to paper is unwise All of the ingredients are changing all the
time Changing all the time, they’re changing all
the time Changing all the time, I’m changing all the
time

    I love this and it's incredible, thank you so much for making it!
    This isn't to say it's bad, but I WISH Remus was next to Roman and Deceit next to Logan instead in that one part.

    Anyways, the last drawings made me giggle out loud and I'm having a really crappy couple of days lately so it was really good for my soul. Thank you. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’šโค๏ธ๐Ÿ–ค

  3. That one emotional wreck in the room

    I love this like the way youโ€™ve paired the lyrics with the sides and your art style and your animation and itโ€™s just so amazing!!! I especially love the chorus like I would never have thought of all these and just well done!!

  4. RatchetsApprentice

    This is so stunningly amazing I can think of no other words but those to describe it. I loved every second thank you for the work you put into this!!!

  5. Alia Baxter

    Can I just say thank you? I had a hard time sitting through the original Recipe For Me music video, but somehow your animatic is so much easier to finish. Iโ€™m not sure Iโ€™d ever have managed to listen to the entire song without it. I love this SO MUCH, holy crap. Thank you so much for creating! โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’—

  6. Isabel Gee

    This is amazing, I didn't even relies there were any mistakes until I read the comments. The timing was perfect and each scene was beautifully drawn.

  7. Lyric Smith

    That's what's good about having six different characters have almost the same voice, for a song like this you can't really tell if it's that character or not, I like it.

  8. ThatNonBinaryAlien

    I literally can't put into words how much I live this! The only thing I can say that slightly grasps my complete and utter love for this is that this is ART! Like.. Put this in a Museum or something! It's just so beautiful! ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Bubble Pop

    you've woven your art to fit they lyrics of this song so well! I loved every second of this, the rainbow colours you use are just so pretty!

  10. Kammy Anne

    this is so well done! i loved every second of it! the way the characters match the lines so perfectly, your artwork is absolutely wonderful. loved this so much.

  11. Kenny-Never-Doll

    This was so so so good! I love how much detail you put in and it must've taken so much time and effort but it's so good so thank you!

  12. DarkAngel 1204

    That must've taken so long, you did an absolutely awesome job
    This was extremely heart warming, thank you for doing this! I love it <3

  13. Katie May

    I love Patton just taking the "recipe" literally, and that you showed at the beginning, as well as the end! This whole animatic is absolutely amazing, words can't describe how much I love it!

  14. Danithetree 23

    Parts of the video that made me scream
    -Logan as Sherlock
    -Virgil and Patton hugging
    -Patton getting stuff to bake
    -Logan looking proud at Thomas about the DNA part
    -Thomas running with a rainbow
    -the little montage of the things that happened to the sides
    -the sides logos
    -The sides being Sad boys
    -Patton looking at Roman and Virgil and making them happy
    -the anime moment with Logan and Patton
    -all the sides together with Thomas in the back
    -Thomas running as the montage is rolling like in Steven universe

    In the end I cried because it was a good video

  15. Mallowfly !

    This is just as beautiful as the original.
    Just as b e a u t i f u l
    Amazing amazing amazing

    Something i just noticed is that you know how all the sides have a color (Roman-Red Virgal-Purple)
    If we get one more sign and they are orange than we will have the R A I N B O W

  17. kokocat101

    oh my gOOoOoOOoOOodD!
    This is absolutely amazing! It's like, as good as the music video!! I experienced all the feels I did from watching the music video the first time, it was g r e a t
    I loved the "Rewrites, losses, gains and rearrangements" part the most, but it all was super good!
    Also the flow of the rainbow bits, I thought those were cool as hecc!
    And the little outro bit with Logan and Patton was a nice little touch!

  18. Isabella Gonzalez

    This legitimately made me laugh and cry and smile so big. I'm not one who has huge reactions to things, but this made me so happy that I genuinely could not stop the smile from coming on my face. This was such a wonderful interpretation in so many aspects, everything just flowed and worked so well together. I am in awe and I shall watch this at least another 3 times.

  19. Amanda Prosek

    Forget the (extremely minor) mistakes, this is a masterpiece! Someone share this with Thomas stat! He needs to see this! Oh my God!

    Okay, fangirl mode, lowering a few notches.

    Honestly, forget the "lone/loan sharks" mix-up; I think it works better for the video to interpret it as "lone sharks" because it works so well for Logan. You fooled me into believing THAT was the intended spelling for the lyric rather than what I initially believed, and the storm-cloud misspelling is so unimportant.

    That was MOVING. I just…I couldn't stop gushing the whole way through. That was so endearing. LIKE!

  20. Joseph Martรญnez

    I love it ๐Ÿ˜ป, such a masterpiece I must say, definitely love that each side is a color of the rainbow like wow ๐Ÿคฉ you really dis great

  21. Nicole R
