BSG - Default

RIP Lorena Gale, Farah Fawcett and Michael Jackson

I'm almost afraid to ask who's going to shuffle off this mortal coil next! Callous perhaps, but this is a one-two-three punch that's left me quite shocked. I was sad enough about Lorena Gale, who of course played Elosha on BSG, that Farah barely registered. And unfortunately, she in turn will be overshadowed many, many times over by Jackson's death. Talk about a punch to the gut.

All the retrospectives they're now doing on TV are making me feel old. Holy crap. He was certainly a character, but I did like some of his songs - "Thriller" and "Billie Jean" in particular. The minute it came on the news Andrew and I started talking about how this would probably be comparable to when Elvis died, which neither of us were alive for but which we've heard about many times. And then a newsreader said the exact same thing.

I just ... yeah, it feels really unbelievable right now. So much death for one day (though I do know that Gale actually passed on Saturday). May all three of them rest in peace. :(

Author's Notes: See icon. "Love hurts" is essentially (and unfortunately) kind of the theme for this chapter, and it refers to both physical and emotional hurt. We're nearing the end of Season 1 here, folks, and while I'm rather nervous about plunging into the S2 plotline, I am nonetheless prepared to jump in with both feet. Thanks for all your lovely reviews on the last chapters! :D
