Summary: Peggy finds her people, and her place in the world. Agent Carter team vid.
(This vid contains a couple of talking clips in the middle, in case that's something that bothers you.)

Review: This video manages to be a nice look at all the relationships we see Peggy form on screen over the two seasons of the show. sholio’s summary makes it very clear that it’s about Peggy finding her own place and building a family, but watching it I found that for me that even more it was about Peggy touching the lives of the people she works with and I found it very fitting that it starts with Steve and ends with her and Sousa. But this is very much not a romance vid. This is about Peggy and all the friends and connections she makes.

The song is very snappy and upbeat and I thought that made it even better for all these moments of characters connecting with each other, because the show emphasized the drama and sadness sometimes to the point where it is nice to be reminded that there is a cheerful side to all the memories and relationships that should never be forgotten. The moments that keep the lines from the show are very powerful and touched me very much and I knew immediately that I wanted to share it.
