Erica Durance Board 10 Year Anniversary: ♪ Extraordinary magic follows you around ... I see extraordinary magic in you. ♪







Erica About E r i c a
"If there is one thing that is certain, it is that there will always be change.
My mom always told me to be like a Willow tree so that I could bend with the breeze.
As I gaze out at this beautiful and tumultuous Ocean I am contemplating my ability to change, to grow, to learn, to evolve with as much grace as possible."

Ray {dancing in the rain}

Being on FanForum for 10 amazing years feels surreal but at the same time completely normal. Erica is such an amazingly talented, passionate, sweet and fun person,
so coming to this board every day to discuss the different aspects of her career, personality, friendships and online presence
was always super easy and super fun. I've had some amazing times on this board, met wonderful people who've become good friends over years.
Especially thank you to my co-mod Rachel, whom I'll be ever grateful for, for bringing me back into the Smallville fandom so I could find out about Erica and become an ultimate fan. We followed Erica on her journey over the years and loved every moment appreciating everything good about this incredible actress and human being.
Thanks to everyone who's helped us get this far, no matter the size of contribution they had!

Tia {eternalfate}
I am so proud of the Erica Durance board for reaching the incredible milestone of 10 years! I did not post daily but when I posted on the board, it's always been a good time. Erica has been in so many projects over the years, but the one I recognize her in most if her Lois Lane role where she shined right from "Crusade" episode.
Erica was meant to appear in only 4 episodes, but then got extended to 8 episodes and then 13, and ultimately after season 4, she became a series regular for the rest of the series run thus showing how incredible of an actress she is. She showed as Lois Lane that she can shine in the brightest light and that is just like the Erica Durance board. It feels like the board reached 10 years faster than a speeding bullet.

Also, I will like to especially thank the mods Ray and Rachel who has been the soldiers of this board right from the beginning. Those 2 work perfect together as a mod combination, it started with Smallville and than they successfully teamed up again for the ED board. I am happy to have been a little bit a part of the journey for this incredible milestone and anniversary for the beautiful Erica Durance!

Perfect Color: The Erica Durance Board 10 Year Anniversary Soundtrack


It seems like it was just yesterday that we were anxiously campaigning every month and doing our utmost to bring this board into existence and now ten years have flown by in the blink of an eye.
I definitely think this board came into existence at the "right place, right time"
because it served as a safe haven for me and for many other Lois fans when Lois really came into her own in the later seasons of Smallville.
This soundtrack is my love letter to Erica, Lois, and this board and the wonderful people that I've met here over the past ten years.
The first song on this soundtrack is called "Perfect Color" and I think it beautifully describes the way we felt the minute Lois/Erica showed up on SV.
"Yellow nice to meet you, do you know that you just blue my mind?" The second song, "Colour" is also very appropriate because when Erica came to SV it was like a breathe of fresh air and like things popped into technicolour.
Erica is a uniquely gifted, giving, and compassionate individual. I really do see "extraordinary magic" in her
because she gives her all to every role she plays and she handles every challenge that is thrown her way with grace and dignity.

Erica is also completely and unapologetically herself. The song "I Wanna Be Like Me" speaks to that with lyrics like,
"What if I wanna be the one who/ Doesn't need to hide? /What if I wanna be the one who/ Won't apologize? /I'm not the enemy /Unless that's what you choose to see...I was made to be exactly like me."
I love this song as a message for everyone to just be themselves and I love Erica as a role model for this important message about being true to yourself.

Once again, thank you Erica for your unique take on Lois and your complete and utter dedication to that role.
Thank you to my fellow fan forum members for celebrating Erica and her many roles with me.
Thank you to my wonderful co-mod, Rayyan, for everything she does for this board on a daily basis and for being a friend and confidante to me for the past 10+ years.
I would do it all "over and over" again in heartbeat.
I love you all.

Soundtrack Compilation & Write-up
by now.it.all.begins (Rachel)
Soundtrack Art by dancing in the rain (Ray)

1. Perfect Color by SafetySuit
Yellow nice to meet you
Do you know that you just blue my mind?
It was the perfect conversation, I think that I red about one time
And I told a white lie when I told you, I've never been green with envy you
You are the perfect color


2. Color by MNEK ft. Hailee Steinfeld
Before you came into my life
Everything was black and white
Now all I see is colour
Like a rainbow in the sky
So, tell me your love will never fade
That I won't see no clouds of grey
'Cause I don't want another
You bring colour to my life, baby


3. Extraordinary Magic by Ben Rector
You won't believe it and strange as it sounds
Extraordinary magic follows you around
And the camera can't catch it, you won't see it in the mirror
If I say look behind you, you turn around, it disappears

But I see it, I see it, I swear I do
I see extraordinary magic in you


4. Girls Like You by Maroon 5 ft. Cardi B
'Cause girls like you run 'round with guys like me
'Til sundown when I come through

Girls like you love fun, and yeah, me too
What I want when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah


5. I Like Me Better by Lauv

I like me better when I'm with you

Wherever you are know that our love will never die
Wherever you are, wherever you are
Love will never die
Wherever you are, wherever you are

7. I'll Be There by Jess Glynne
When all the tears are rolling down your face
And it feels like yours was the only heart to break
When you come back home and all the lights are out, ooh
And you getting used to no one else being around

Oh, oh, I'll be there
When you need a little love, I got a little love to share
Yeah, I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna come through
You'll never be alone, I'll be there for you


8. Invincible by David Archuleta
Take a breath
Look at how you're tryna to think it to death
If you're in the crossfire, don't forget
That you don't have to be invincible
Take a step
Even if you fall, it ain't over yet
If you're in the crossfire, don't forget
That you don't have to be invincible


9. Beautiful by Virginia to Vegas
You're beautiful right where you are.
You're perfect with all of your scars.
And maybe to them you may not be anyone or anything
But darling you're everything to me


10. Look at Me Now by Keke Palmer
Nothing's impossible
The spark is in you
Light up the whole world
And just look, look, look at me now

Yesterday's gone now
Today's a new day
Tomorrow's my future
And it starts here today
The beauty inside
Is coming alive
I'm so happy it did oh!


11. I Wanna be Like Me by Sara Bareilles
What if I wanna be the one who
Doesn't need to hide?
What if I wanna be the one who
Won't apologize?
I'm not the enemy
Unless that's what you choose to see

What if I wanna be the one who
You never understand?
Do you ever think you'll ever want to still try to hold my hand?
To get through to you I'm still trying to

What if I don't wanna be like you?
Not to make you cry
What if I don't wanna be like you?
Just because I was made to be exactly like me


12. Right Place, Right Time by Olly Murs
We got our eyes wide open, feeling like we are almost there.
Words unspoken disappearing in the air
All I see is you and I
You're the only lifeline that I need tonight
I'm letting go.

So this is what it feels like
Being at the right place the right time
I'm hanging on for dear life
Hoping we can make this a long night
This is why we came yeah
I can feel it in my veins
So this is what it feels like
Right place the right time


13. Now by Colbie Caillat
You gotta live in the now
'Cause you can't go back to yesterday, eh
You gotta live in the now
'Cause tomorrow is too far away, eh eh eh


14. Over and Over by Ben Rector
It's been a while since
We felt the way we did
Back when we were dumb and younger
It's been a while since
I looked into your eyes
And saw starlight, bold bright colors, yeah

When I'm down (You lift me up)
When I'm dry (You fill my cup)
No one else (Could be my love)
(My love)

I would choose you over and over
I would choose you over and over
I would choose you over and over again, again
And after all we've been through
There's no one else for me but you
I would choose you over and over again, again


15. Nostalgic by Kelly Clarkson
Don't be sad that it's over
Just be happy that it happened to us
Don't look back and remember
Drunken tears, oh
Remember the love


16. Looking Up by SafetySuit
Call it a feeling
Call it a premonition
Things are about to go my way
You don't have to see it
Just believe it's coming
Some things are bound to change


17. Finally Free by Niall Horan
When you're right here beside me, there's nothing else I need
Your eyes keep me reminded that nothing's out of reach
When you're with me, it feels like I'm finally free
Feels like I'm finally free


18. Everything Must Go by Kiersey Clemmons ft. Nick Offerman
When I first knew this place
It was a different time
And we were tied to each other
Now we drift at the end of the line

And somewhere in the middle of it
I tried to find you standing there
I know you're far away but
I still feel you here somewhere

But I gotta let it go
Let it slip from the tip of my hands
I'll watch it as it goes
Keep it in my heart no matter where I am
