As long term readers know, from time to time, I take a story I’ve really enjoyed from the latest update from the EMCSA and publicize it on here. Though in some elements this blog has been a bit tamed down from the early days, I still like to go back to the Mind Control stuff roots once in a while, and tonight is one of those.
Only thing is, this bit of publicity is a bit different to the norm. Its not so brilliant a story that its worth lots of hype, its just that, according to the author, this is his last one. To say I know little of Dictionary Rainbow beyond the odd contact on forums, or after reviewing one of his stories would be telling the truth. I know enough to know that he had a child a few years back, and I suspect that is probably one of the main reasons why he is quite literally getting out of the scene. So, if you click the link after the end of May, you probably wont get anything, just warning you!
I know, its long, but I found it worth the read. For those who havent got the time, without giving the outcome away, its about 2 twin sisters who now have nothing in common (including body shape), and a mysterious stranger who tries out something magical to bring them back together again. I will say it works, and leave it at that, because it doesnt work in a gooey, saccharin way, just warning any potential readers!
As someone with no sisters, indeed no family at all, I think I’m safe, lol! At the same time, allowing for the age difference between now, and her, but it would be fun, as a twenty, or thirty something, to be able to swap places, quite literally with my past life self, just for one day. Well, ideally a bit longer (about a week?), so I could get the feel of life working in the movies in the late 20’s, and during the 30’s before coming back to the real world. Thankfully in this story, you get the host bodies talents, so I would get her dancing skills, which might be a blessing! I wonder what Clara would make of a modern office lol? Oh my, that would be fun, and the amusement at actually asking Jean Harlow for her autograph, in real life… 😉
So anyway, Dictionary Rainbow (whatever your real name is), all my best wishes for the future, and thanks for all the memories. Oh, and thanks for one last story, and for letting us know you’re going, so we dont worry about you.
OK, video time. I think I might have given it away. But yes, this is a bit special. Not just Bowie, not just Queen as backing band either (its from the Freddie Mercury memorial concert), but the last (in this life at least) major live performance of Bowie, and Mick Ronson together. Ronson died a year later, at 46, from cancer, far too young.
