[As Hannah S. The morning after Boise, from the hotel bathtub.]

[Group: Mars, Si, Jamie, David, Hugh, Marta, Caspar.]
Hi. Sorry. I don't know what happened, but I'm okay now.

[Caspar A]
I'll still pay, so that you won't tell your dad. Okay?

"I was wrong to tell you that this is a story about the failures of love. No, it is about real love, true love. Imperfect, wretched, weak love. No fairy tales, no poetry. It is about the negotiations we undertake with ourselves in the name of love. Every day we struggle with what to give away and what to keep, but every day we make that calculation and we live with the results. This then is the true lesson: there is nothing romantic about love. Only the most naïve believe it will save them. Only the hardiest of us will survive it."*

[Public, as Amy M.]

[Public, after visiting the rec center.]

I was curious and curious and curious about why people never said things the clear way. Why not say what you feel? Why not just be honest? Why lies and secrets and pretty dances? And I've realized that it's just that no one wants to be disliked, and so they twist and turn and tie themselves in knots saying things they think are the right thing, instead of saying the things that are true. But, why? Why, why, why, when then people get to know someone who isn't you at all? Why offer flawless when you're not, or do you believe you are? And I think that too now. That some people can convince themselves, and the truth is you'll never, ever know anyone else unless you know their truth, and you'll never know their truth if you don't stop and listen and stop wording your defenses before they're even done telling you how they feel.

And, another thing, tarnish is beautiful. Shadows are beautiful. Divots and cracks and shattered things are beautiful. No one really wants the perfect thing. Perfect things are like dull surfaces and not real at all. Real is always better.

The end.

I saw you talk to an ox at a party. Hello, hello.

Mar. 6th, 2019


[Carnival: Mars, Jamie, Si, David, Hannah]

Who: The Mayer Family (yes, David, that includes you.)
What: An attempt at interaction
Where: The Carnival
When: Nowish
Warnings/Rating: Maybe A for anger. Maybe G for ghosts. Possibly K for kidneys. And C for clowns.

It would be an understatement to say Hannah was dressed somberly. Black, black, black, and it kind of fit her mood. She was a mess of emotions in a morass of unknown matter. She had no idea what CARNEM had in store, and she was a whirl-twirl-spin of confusion about who she was. Jamie had said she wasn't herself, and she'd almost called her dad to talk to him. Amy had talked to him a lot, even when the others had stopped, and Hannah thought it couldn't really do any harm, could it? So he'd think Amy was alive, so what?, and maybe it would make him happy. Because her memories of him weren't completely terrible. They weren't, and she didn't hate him, and maybe she just wanted one tiny moment of being who she'd been.

But she didn't call. She dressed in black, black, black, and she took the bus back to town, just like she did every day. And right now, she was just answering phones. "Hi, you've reached the Albin Dream Clinic, how can I direct your call?" But that was temporary, and she was glad to be back in her little trailer once the day was done. At least she wasn't expected to stay in the Capital every night. Here, weird and strange and in pieces, it was home now. Home, home, home, and she thought the word as she stepped, stepped, stepped beneath the Carnival arch.

It was dark, and the Carnival was mostly empty and mostly cold, but the lights on the rights were neon beckons, and Hannah walked toward the carousel and waited for her siblings to arrive as she thought about life's tendency to spin in technicolor circles.

Hey so I think we need some like, actual family time. Is everyone in for the Carnival on the outside of town?

[news: a recent homicide]

[It's a scoop on the local paper, and certainly it wasn't intended to get out, but the death of Stewart Brown has now been linked by DNA to the unsolved murder of Molly Mayer in the Capital in 2016. After word of the connection hits the papers, anyone with information about either death is encouraged by the authorities to come forward.]
