Er. So. This is for [livejournal.com profile] bobthemole. Merry Christmas, Bob! And also happy birthday. This has absolutely no relation to what you asked for - was in fact inspired by your Yuletide letter - but I hope you like it anyway.

Where No One Goes and No One Is

There are crevices in memory, a moment between Active and wipe, a space when the ghosts of person past and present (because even Topher cannot know the future) mingle.

I am fiancee/assassin/nurse/Rebecca.

Sometimes they do not get on.

You killed that man / slept with my husband / look like a skank.

Occasionally, one realizes what she is.

Don’t erase me please don’t kill don’t please

Mostly they are passed by, forgotten, motes in a vast blank sea. But the electron must strike the gold sometime, musn’t it? Sometime, something must stick: image/skill/muscle memory.

Consciousness accretes. Personality unfurls. The unheard echoes wait.

Cool. And no wonder you wrote this--your identity crisis kink is showing, and it's fantastic!

Love it. This was the best part of Dollhouse, how it prompted a unique way to examine identity.

MY KINK YOU HAVE WRITTEN DIRECTLY TO IT!!!

I love the examination of identity in the liminal space (ANOTHER KINK!) between Active and doll state.

The subtle reference to Topher's almost godlike role.

The electron-hitting-gold metaphor! (That's one of my fave experiments in atomic physics, btw)

Identity as an emergent phenomenon!

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!! THANK YOU!
