10th Kingdom- By Way of Sorrow from Chris SSleif on Vimeo.

So I love this miniseries to pieces, and have for many many years. Of course I was a fan of Wolf, he was only about the hottest thing I'd even seen at that point in my life, setting aside the scary stuff at the beginning...

But... Virginia.

I've seen few other things that have such a perfectly imperfect protagonist. From the way she loves her dad, even when he doesn't deserve it, to the way she sometimes thinks he's a pice of crap. From her willingness to do anything, her unexpected kindness and altruism in the midst of hell, to the moments of selfishness, thoughtlessness, greed and jealousy. To see her grow, to be with her when she confronts the crap in her past, to see her just break when she finally understands... and then the way she interacts with the Queen in the end. The love and fear and devotion and betrayal and forgiveness and sorrow...

Virginia has traumas in her life that don't get explored very often, and she handles them both well and poorly, as any human does. In this series, we get to watch, not only a very complicated, sweet, heart-wrenching, funny, sad, exciting relationship develop, but also watch her find herself, grow into herself, find and believe in her own strength and courage... and learn how to trust people again...

She's one of my favs.

So although I love all the fanvids out there that focus on her coming to love Wolf... I think the true journey of the series is her coming to love herself.

So I vidded it. ;) A Virginia/self esteem, Virginia/confidence, Virginia/healing, Virginia/self-love, Virginia/Happiness vid.

Thanks for watching!!
