31 Flavors: Justified vid

Wow, three days have got away from me like whoa, so I'm way behind on my 31 Flavors recs, but I'm going to try to catch up over the next few days. Today's rec was a bitch to track down, but I really wanted to rec this vid from Vividcon a couple years ago because it's stuck with me.

Girl in the War
Source: Justified
Artist: Josh Ritter
by amnisias

This vid just really hit me in the gut, just the way I like it. It's a really powerful look at Loretta and her relationship to Raylan (and to the people in Harlan who have affected her), and what happened to her during season 2. The girl in the war metaphor works surprisingly well here, and the song is already quite haunting, but amnisias has worked real magic in the clip choices here to make it hit even harder. I looooove Loretta and this vid was just a perfect examination of what has made her who she is.

Thanks so much for the rec, that's very flattering. There's just not much that compares to waking up to unexpected positive feedback on a Friday morning! I feel like it's week-end already... :)

You are quite welcome, and thank you for making it! Hey, I had to go back through your LJ to around the time of VVC two years ago, and so I linked to that post, but I couldn't find the vid anywhere else. Is there a better link you'd prefer me to use? I wasn't sure what your pref was in this situation.

I admit I'm kinda sad, in a way, about them turning Loretta into a criminal mastermind. I wanted only hearts and flowers for her for the future, and a warm relationship with Raylan, I don't know, I'm being really sappy about it, but goddamn I love them both and I just see pain and misery headed her way this way. Plus I want her and Raylan to be BFFs 4eva. But at least in this vid I can pretend that. ;-)
