[livejournal.com profile] aberranteyes left something out of today's essay on London Fog. For one, he didn't mention her support of the Queer Nova Alliance. (Then again, this is understandable, in that he hasn't previously mentioned the QNA, and in that her support was quiet, so as not to make a publick example of the reasons for that support.)

He left something else out, but as he never spoke to her face-to-face, that's not something for which I can blame him. I'm reminded of it because he has a song by Garbage as the soundtrack for the post in question, and it's a song by Garbage that Elizabeth once mentioned to me — the title track from their fourth album, Bleed Like Me, which they released last year in my universe as well as in this one. Specifically, the second verse (or, perhaps, the second half of the first verse):

Chrissie's all dressed up and acting coy
Painted like a brand new Christmas toy
He's
[sic] trying to figure out if he's a girl or he's a boy, he says
Hey baby, can you bleed like me?
C'mon baby, can you bleed like me?


That spoke to Elizabeth because, before her eruption, she'd been there. Trying to figure out why (as Austin puts it) the body didn't match the soul. Trying to make the Emories comprehend what they never could. (And, of course, the final chorus of "You should see my scars" got to her the same way it got to Butch Vig.)

Patience, Doc. I'll have a post up in September that'll have Andy Vance in it; I can cover his backstory, and the QNA, then.

And why the Primoris icon? This is spinning off an entry about something that's happening "now", after all.

Thanks. And yeah, that makes sense. It's great when characters make decisions, and tell you things about their world, that surprise you. Like this whole post.

((Don't mind the OOC post here... but I'm guessing from Michael's interaction with Alec the dating thing has gone well?))

((Never a problem for him or me. And yeah, I'm playing it as if either it has, or he's feeling bad about not making the time.))

((I rather like idea that it has... Alec does need a boyfriend rather badly. It makes him more stable, mentally. How far a long shall they have gotten?))

((I honestly don't have an opinion, and the Michael who lives in my head just smiles teasingly when I ask him to tell me.))

((I hate it when they refuse to talk. Alec's just sort of shruggy about it. And he changes the subject.))
