The whole mashup is a beautiful gut punch.
There are three sacred texts of the last year: Greta Gerwig's Little Women (which, despite technically coming out Christmas Day of 2019, really got us through 2020), Taylor Swift's folklore, and Taylor Swift's evermore. Twitter user @emamma_mia edited Little Women and evermore together with an alchemy that's got us "In (our) feelings more than Drake, so yeah."
In the short clip, @emamma_mia edits scenes of Jo and Laurie to a snippet of Taylor Swift's hit song "champagne problems" off the evermore album.
"One for the money, two for the show/ I never was ready, so I watch you go," Swift sings. As Laurie achingly proposes to Jo on an autumnal hill, the song marches on. "Sometimes you just don't know the answer/ 'Til someone's on their knees and asks you." Jo refuses him, and worries if she's done the right thing—as she cries in the movie, "I'm so sick of people saying that love is just all a woman is fit for, I'm so sick of it—but I'm so lonely."
Swift sings along, "She would've made such a lovely bride/ What a shame she's f*cked in the head," they said." @emamma_mia places the next lines over cuts of Laurie and Amy getting together, and Jo's reconciliation and resignment. "But you'll find the real thing instead/ She'll patch up your tapestry that I shred."

The whole thing's a beautiful little gut punch. Praise be to @emamma_mia for making a "sister edit" to the tune of "gold rush," also off of evermore. The Amy and Laurie edit is a cheerful, sweet ode to their relationship, and it's a very welcome tonic after the weepy "champagne problems" edit.
