Just found out Vir's actor has passed. As if I didn't have all the B5 feels already lately! Dammit dammit dammit! :( Too many beyond the rim. Too sharding many.

*repeats to self* The actor may be dead, but the character's not. The actor may be dead, but the character's not...

I would do well to remember this.

My favourite Vir bit... which, come to think of it, shows just how much fire he'd gotten years before; he didn't just improv telling You-Know-Who off, he'd *thought about it*...

is this. Vir Gets What He Wants.

And then there is this. To absent friends, in memory still bright.

You'll need kleenex.

I never saw much of the show past the first season, but that scene... close to Kleenex.

If you ever get round to it... you can kinda cherrypick Season 2, watch *all* of Season 3, most of season 4 (which includes Stephen Furst's directoral debuts), and of Season 5, ONLY watch:

The Very Long Night of Londo Mollari
Day of the Dead (written by Neil Gaiman)
and the last four:
Wheel of Fire
Objects in Motion
Objects at Rest
Sleeping in Light

The rest of it? Out the airlock, really.

*bow, flourish*

I just figured S5 was so *bad* in certain spots that a warning was in order... but it's not *completely* trash either; the ones I pointed out actually have some impact.

*goes to find fanfic*

And, oh, yeah. Talia. Talk about a raw deal. At least Lyta got a decent one. I think of all the characters who wandered through B5, she and G'Kar got the best outcomes. Well, and Garibaldi.

Susan? *sigh* Poor dear.

But then, except for Garibaldi, JMS never let *anyone* keep who they wanted to.

I'm sorry. The loss of a creative person whose work mattered personally is a strange kind of grief.
