Victoria Dark

Dan Curtis first dreamed of a dark-haired girl riding a train to an estate, which was the inspiration for Dark Shadows. In Shadows on the Wall, the series' bible, Victoria was initially called Sheila March until the name was changed to suggest a more regal, older time. Her search for answers to her mysterious past, which was the driving force behind her accepting the governess position at Collinwood, would have originally led to the revelation that Victoria was the product of an affair between Paul Stoddard and an unknown woman. Elizabeth was to have discovered Victoria's existence the night she thought she had killed Paul, and her guilt over his death prompted her to send money to the Foundling Home. However, these plans were eventually scrapped when the Dark Shadows production team decided that Victoria would be Elizabeth's illegitimate daughter instead. This was due, in part, to Alexandra Moltke's close resemblance to Joan Bennett. In 1987, Bennett recorded a special video for fans in which, in character as Elizabeth, revealed that Victoria was her daughter.[3]

I am one of those who views the Burton film as having done something marvelous and compelling with the whole idea of Victoria Winters, diving if anything deeper into the whole character concept than ever before. She was always a mystery, always someone who felt out of touch with the world. "Victoria Winters" itself is such an obvious alias, chosen because of the face she was found abandoned in wintertime. Without a past, searching for an anchor, finding it in Barnabas.On the other hand, one of the things I adored about the original series was that Vicki was *never* Josette reincarnated. She was herself, and in his attraction to her--the real person rather than the recreation of a long-gone Josette--that Barnabas began finding his humanity once more. That is what seems missing in all the other, later versions of DS (of which I count ten so far--original series, Gold Key comics, Ross novels, first two movies, 91 revival, Innovation Comics, Off Off Broadway play, Big Finish, WB Pilot and now the 2012 flick).Seems to me several options await. One is to give Victoria a specific past and her own story, intertwining that with the other characters. Another is to make her far more ambiguous, so that everything about her seems a mystery wrapped up in an enigma. Still another is to make her in some sense the villain of the piece, or at least to contain a darkness that threatens as well as attracts.

If Max managed to warn Victoria about Nathan and the dark room, she will approach Jefferson for help, which ends her up in the dark room, drugged and tied up next to Max. She pleads for Max to help her but is later murdered by Jefferson.

If dark matter (DM) particles are lighter than a few MeV/c^2 and can scatter off electrons, their interaction within the solar interior results in a considerable hardening of the spectrum of galactic dark matter received on Earth. For a large range of the mass versus cross section parameter space, m_e,σ_e, the "reflected" component of the DM flux is far more energetic than the end point of the ambient galactic DM energy distribution, making it detectable with existing DM detectors sensitive to an energy deposition of 10-10^3 eV. After numerically simulating the small reflected component of the DM flux, we calculate its subsequent signal due to scattering on detector electrons, deriving new constraints on σ_e in the MeV and sub-MeV range using existing data from the XENON10/100, LUX, PandaX-II, and XENON1T experiments, as well as making projections for future low threshold direct detection experiments. 041b061a72
