Vidder Notes: I love Wash but I guess I'm not alone in that sentiment.  Make a Wash vid I thought - it'll be  fun. And then you recall that he spends a lot of screen time in what little source we have from the few episodes and one film either sitting at the controls of Serenity, spouting witty dialogue or being tortured/dead (spoiler alert) Well seeing as he so much a part of Serenity, I have included gratutious flying scenes because, it's so pretty and in a sense that's Wash you see there - not just the ship.  The rest of the time features one of the best relationships in the whole whedonverse, Zoe & Wash.  Loved the song and it's been on the 'list' for years. I didn't realise there was a well known cover until after I had finished the vid but I am glad I went with the original.  Anyway please enjoy this very simple vid.

That is so much fun to watch! I love the 'bookends' you chose - from 'this land' to 'leaf on the wind' - perfect. Beautifully made -Thank you for sharing this.

Thank you! Wash is such an endearing character but with limited source to be able to show it. So I am glad you enjoyed the vid.

I thought the 'bookends' illustrated both aspects of his character plus it's his first and (almost) last words.

Aww, it's amazing Wash tribute! And you found an amazing balance between Wash/Serenity and Wash/Zoe.

Thanks hon. Wash is kind of inseparable from them both, the loves of his life.

I liked how the music and vid just kicked off like that. I hadn't heard the song before so I wouldn't have recognized the cover any better ;)

Sweet way to have it end -- really it was bracketed by his two most memorable phrases.

Thank you. There's nothing worse than discovering a different cover of a song you have just vidded - for fear that it's a more appropriate version! This time it wasn't.

I don't like to put in lots of audio overlay in a vid but this time it felt so right to let Wash have the first and last word.

How much flying is a part of Wash absolutely came through in this vid. I enjoyed this a lot.

Thanks. His love of flying made him very much a part of the ship.
