Vidder's Summary: "From many, one."

Vid Commentary overview: "This vid is a tribute to characters and a show that I loved, but it's also an exploration of the ways that doing great things can exact great costs, and the bravery of people who are determined enough to push on, despite those costs."[1]

Reactions/Reviews

  • "OMG, what a lovely, quiet yet immensely powerful vid. There are too few WW vids but this one almost makes up for it :) It has all the emotions of the show, the loneliness and the camaraderie, politics and religion, trust and betrayal, loss and gain, love and death, and everything in between. Just beautiful! Thank you!!!"[2]
  • "Wow, I'm often a tough customer with softer vids, but this one brought tears to my eyes. It was just so incredibly touching. You captured them so well."[3]
  • "Yeah, that was my show. Thank you so much." [4]
  • " This was so wonderfully done. The editing was understated but exquisite... it complimented not only the style of the show and the song you chose but the feelings of absolute togetherness and desolation, of triumph and loss. So amazing. So absolutely amazing." [5]
