Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 Epilogue – Here, where all things come to the close...

Though here at journey's end I lie, in darkness buried deep,
beyond all towers strong and high, beyond all mountains steep,
above all shadows rides the Sun, and Stars for ever dwell:
I will not say the Day is done, nor bid the Stars farewell.’ - J.R.R. Tolkien
****NEW PIECE, even though short****

2 Act 1 – Curtain call

No, I think about him every day. Last thought before I fall asleep and first thought when I wake up. I talk to myself all day about him, even when I'm talking to somebody else, even when I'm talking to you now, I'm talking to myself about him…”

6 Act 5 - The ways the world stops turning

“Anything that happens, happens. Anything that, in happening, causes something else to happen, causes something else to happen. Anything that, in happening, causes itself to happen again, happens again. It doesn't necessarily do it in chronological order, though.” - The hitchhikers guide to the galaxy

7 Act 6 - Brothers

"Our siblings. They resemble just enough to make all the differences confusing, and no matter what we choose to make of this, we are cast in relation to them our whole lives long." Susan Merrell

8 Act 7 - Prelude to shellshock

We dancers are very lonely people. We work together but we are very much self-made, self-centred individuals. -Anonymous-
Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment; most people are even incapable of forming such opinions. -Albert Einstein

9 Act 8 - The secondary effects of shockwaves (part 1)

To love is to destroy and to be loved is to be the one destroyed. – City of Bones

10 Act 8 - The secondary effects of shockwaves (part 2)

Fear is a wonderous thing. It makes you coil into yourself, it makes you whimper. It makes all the worst parts of you shine into the light of day. It brings you forth until you see yourself in your black mirror

- I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart.  I am.  I am.  I am. ~ Sylvia Plath

- A person not only ticks, he also chimes and strikes the hour, falls and breaks and has to be put together again, and sometimes stops like an electric clock in a thunderstorm. ~ James Thurber

Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here? / The Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to / Alice: I don't much care where. / The Cat: Then it doesn't much matter which way you go. - ‘Alice in wonderland’

13 Act 11 – … We are destiny

"Destiny is real and she's not mild-mannered. She will come around and hit you in the face and knock you over and before you know what hit you, you're naked - stripped of everything you thought you knew and everything you thought you didn't know - and there you are: A bloody nose, bruises all over you, and naked. And it's the most beautiful thing" C. JoyBell

14 Act 12 - Adagio

Fear is only an illusion. It is the illusion that creates the feeling of separateness, the false sense of isolation that exists only in your imagination – and which will shake to its foundations by one single helping hand. (adapted)
