Yes, I vidded a song to Enya.  I think that's one of those unspoken 'Don't's' in vidding but I knew this song was perfect for my interpretation of Mal and Inara's relationship.  She wants to be with him, yet she continually exiles herself, including the flat-out "I'm leaving" at the end of 'Heart of Gold.'  This song brought together both that desire and that melancholy nicely.  This show was my first online fandom and I am beyond thrilled to finally be vidding in it.
 
Jen, you not only made this vid better this time around, you made me better.  Cat - this vid wouldn't exist without your support.  Thank you both.

Cold as the northern winds
in December mornings
Cold is the cry that rings
from this far distant shore
 
Winter has come too late
too close beside me
How can I chase away
all these fears deep inside?
 
I'll wait the signs to come
I'll find a way
I will wait the time to come
I'll find a way home
 
My light shall be the moon
and my path - the ocean
My guide the morning star
as I sail home to you
 
I'll wait the signs to come
I'll find a way
I will wait the time to come
I'll find a way home
 
Who then can warm my soul?
Who can quell my passion?
Out of these dreams - a boat
I will said home to you
