"que + subjunctive" at beginning of sentance

votes

Holaaa, I was wondering what it meant when a sentance STARTS with subjunctive or starts with "que + subjunctive"

for example, a friend of mine wrote on my facebook

"que sepas que I thought of you during my party the other night" (I forget the exact wording of the second part of the sentance, but that was it in English)

or there's a movie titled, "Que parezca un accidente"

I'm wondering what that's supposed to imply... like, "(I want) you to know I thought of you during my party'"

"(I hope/ maybe) it seems like an accident'"

I'm hoping for a general answered more than just what those exact examples are saying... I don't think Im asking this question very well...

Thanks so much!

This link shows one use of Que+subjunctive at the beginning of the sentence. Lazarus wrote an interesting post about this abbreviation of sentences when we discussed que+subjunctive for forming **Let's **sentences. I'll see if I can find it.
