Summary: He couldn't say exactly when it was when he crossed the soft line in the earth, in his life.

This is one of those exquisitely written pieces that's going in a folder on my hard drive.... I'd read it just for the prose style if there wasn't anything else to recommend it. But there is, man - they're in character, their voices are perfect, the atmosphere has that Lynchean dream/nightmare vibe, which, combined with the miasma of want and guilt, is irresistible. In my experience, this ship has a lot of difficult hurdles to get past to maintain character, especially with Coop, but Gabihime manages it. Boy does she ever.

Summary: Audrey wrote him brief notes all that next year. Today I went to the waterfall pool. It's really too early to swim but I went in anyway. There was no one else around, and I couldn't hear myself breathe or think, the water was so loud. I had to get out too soon because I was cold. Are you ever lonely?

I haven't been successful in finding much really excellent Twin Peaks fic out there. The fandom's pretty small, and I think there are many more fanartists than fic authors around -- I'll have to post links to a few of my favorite cross-stitch pieces at some point. But this was a really good piece, a suggestion of closure that might fit.

Doing a rewatch of Twin Peaks. Wanting to surround myself with this show, just immerse myself in it completely. There's a redness to its palate that shadows even the mist-draped blues and greens of the mountainous, wooded Pacific northwest. I want to wrap myself in chevrons. I want to take my coffee black. (I never take my coffee black.) I wish I could forget everything so I could watch it for the first time again.

Trying to get back into fandom after a too-long hiatus. Reinventing myself somewhat (?) in the ether. I seem to recall it being easier than this - I had much more confidence when I was a child.

I'm a fan of genius, filmic poetry, rich colors that hide many secrets. I'm an academic. I'm not a fan of blogging. I need to write more. I consume too much. I want to dip my toes in someone else's world!

My fandoms are legion: dystopian literature, post-apocalyptia, thin white dukes, alienation, the eyes behind the mask, nostalgia for other people's pasts, strangers' souls. (I'll show you mine if you show me yours.)

More to come...?
