This is the first thing I've written in the CS-verse in... well, a long time. This particular piece has been several years in the brewing (okay, I got distracted by other things). It was first plotted in October 2006 over various alcoholic beverages in Athens, a city whose history was really the starting point. I'm not sure where this is going but I do know I am stubborn enough to finish it once it takes hold in my imagination. I'm currently in the throes of reading all of the John Le Carré so the temptation to make Rosemary's father a George Smiley-esque spymaster was quite high, but I resisted.
Essentially, I think we can just say that I'm fascinated by EBD's 'minor mistresses', the ones who just get casual mentions in passing, and always want to flesh them out a bit. Any inconsistencies with EBD are my own because they suit my plot better... ;) Also, mostly I'm going to use chapter titles from lyrics of Laura Pausini songs - the title is also a song by Laura with Andrea Bocelli.
Roughly translated the chapter title means 'the solitude between us', from the Laura Pausini song 'La Solitudine'. I'm still working on a vague timeline...
Thank you for the reviews - they are most cheering to my face :)
As a note to this chapter my Italian is... limited, rusty, largely non est. I learned a little at university and I think the few words thrown in here are probably the extent of what knowledge I acquired!
Merci for reading and reviewing :)
Chapter title means literally 'from the labyrinth of nostalgia' a line from the Laura Pausini song 'Strani Amori'.
The chapter title translates as 'if I could forget you' (Laura Pausini, Incancellabile).
I think, somehow, I'm finally getting there (wherever there is) with what I want from this. We'll see.
So I went on holiday and this suddenly jumped forward ten years. These things happen...
Chapter title means 'it is impossible to live without the past'.
Thank you for reading and reviewing <3
Chapter title translation: to everything else that will come.
Mille grazie for reading and reviewing :)
Thank you for reading and reviewing :)
Merci for reading and reviewing <3
Merci for sticking with me :)
loose translation: I wonder if you think of me.
I am completely hopeless at (a) writing this and (b) remembering to update when I do at the moment. Lalala. We'll get there, don't worry.
Also, I can't think of a chapter title. In any language of my acquaintance.
