Tikkun Olam

“”I can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and I can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and I can do you all three concurrent or consecutive, but I can’t do you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory — they’re all blood, you see.”"In other words, this is the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern one.Summary: “”Deaths and disclosures, universal and particular, denouements both unexpected and inexorable, transvestite melodrama on all levels including the suggestive. We transport you into a world of intrigue and illusion … clowns, if you like, murderers — we can do you ghosts and battles, on the skirmish level, heroes, villains, tormented lovers — set pieces in the poetic vein; we can do you rapiers or rape or both, by all means, faithless wives and ravished virgins — flagrante delicto at a price, but that comes under realism for which there are special terms.”"Ah, our poor unloved baby. I still like it, though.Rating: NC-17. (Guildenstern: Is that what people want? Player: It’s what we do.) Warning! Characters die. Is it anyone you care about? That would be telling.

The Presence of Fire

The war Lex won, the war he lost, and the war he didn’t know he was fighting.Notes: When you come into the presence of a leader of men, you know you have come into the presence of fire; that it is best not incautiously to touch that man; that there is something that makes it dangerous to cross him. — Woodrow WilsonSoundtrack: Gavin Friday, You and me and World War III. The mood of Lex’s part is also heavily inspired by Louise Gluck’s Gretel in Darkness, though I’m not sure anybody but me will see the connection.

While the Tempest Hurled

No pair of kings our mothers bore.

Notes: Thanks to my kind beta readers, Farouche, Jaydn Michelle, and especially to Mary Ellen, Doctor Science, for saying ever-so-gently “I’m not sure what you’re trying to do here, Rivka,” when what she really meant was “I don’t know who sold you what you were smoking the day you wrote this, but I can guarantee you it was a bad batch.”
