I just found my character again. The character from my novel; the character that is supposed to be me.
Two things are missing from that character: sweetness and rage.
The sweetness was there. The rage had been medicated out of me.
Tommy will bring Cassandra rage. Cassandra will remind Tommy of sweetness.
Both will go through the tunnel of rape and forget everything.
Two scenes for sweetness: the chicken dance, the Christmas dinner.
The rage will happen onstage.
