This is funny.
... There's not much of a difference.
There is a significant difference between Thrall and Varian. While Varian's story was veered off in order to more reflect Thrall's and give the Alliance an Anti-Thrall, Varian has since evolved beyond that unflattering role as a foil to the Horde. He's a character who has shown significant growth and a sincere care for the Alliance, and he hasn't done so in a jarring way that shoves him down the Horde's throats either.
Thus far, there hasn't been any sort of attempt to, 'Make the Horde love Varian,' as there has been to, 'Make the Alliance love Thrall.'
Varian is his own character with a very unique history (up until they decided to make him the Anti-Thrall).
