Notes: Premiered in the VividCon 2015 Challenge show for the theme of "Memory." I've been wanting to make a vid kind of like this for a while, however, I'm not sure how entirely successful this one is, as during the vidding process it very much turned into part id vid, part ode to Ruth Wilson's face. All interpretations are welcome, but if you want to know what I had in mind, it's that Jane Eyre discovers that she's immortal, lives through centuries of love and loss and is changed by it, becoming the sociopathic (but still adventurous) Alice Morgan from Luther! ...Obviously! She's reflecting on her past memories and how they've informed who she is. During Challenge review, someone mentioned reincarnation, which is one of many other valid readings; I could never find a Ruth Wilson character who wields a sword and there's only one clip of lightning, so immortality may not be the first thing on people's minds. ;) Honestly, though, if even "ode to Ruth Wilson's face" comes through, that's good enough for me.
