This good bye tastes different
It’s got more of a finality to it-
a subtle hint of everything
that has crashed down around us

There’s no more room
for fighting or crying
No tearing down each other’s walls
or even building them back up again

so this good bye tastes different
in that “I could’ve sworn this was gonna last but we still ended up here” kind of way

this good bye is just
you, me,
and not enough reasons to stay

—  is this what good bye is supposed to sound like

“how’s my land?” she’d ask every day when his father returned from the fields, and later jesper would learn that the farm had been in her name, a wedding gift from his father, who had courted aditi hilli for nearly a year before she’d deigned to give him the time of day. 

“blooming,” he’d say, kissing her cheek.  “just like you, love.”

The Clowns (Pierrot) are a group of ghouls with a mysterious goal or purpose. Its members primarily wear clown-themed masks and state their intentions are to “have the last laugh.” There is no data on their member amount, activity area, nor goals in the CCG database. It is stated that the Clowns do not usually group up, but when they do, they demonstrate exceptional teamwork.

“Pocket of Privacy” Approach - Sorry for my shit graphic, but it was the best I could do to show the non-sequential steps we’ve taken with Elounor in the last several weeks. It’s intentional, and I think they’re doing it for two reasons. 

The first is that it creates these little “pockets of privacy” between reveals that lend “credibility” to the narrative by making articles/anons/stalkers look more “in the know.” The press and stalkers knew Eleanor was in LA, but nobody else did, including her own update accounts, until today. We spent a week arguing she likely wasn’t, because no pictures/tweets/instagrams/snapchats of her were ever posted until today. The blind item and Sony pics explained the “reunion” article that came out this morning, hours before the Jamaica trip was “revealed” via Phoebe. It’s all a careful dance and relay of information meant to construe privacy and secrecy, when that’s not the case at all, because there’s multiple public layers going on to support the narrative at the same time.

The second reason is that I think it requires less participation in the “in between” times. So far. I think they’ll keep this up to make it appear more authentic than in previous times and to keep fans guessing about where/when the next step will be taken. 

Just remember that the order of things matters, and there’s a lot of layers at work here, some of them blatantly public (press articles, likes, follows) and some of them shrouded in fake secrecy and revealed at very intentional, opportunistic times (the Sony pics, the Jamaica trip, the Eleanor LA pics). It’s all still fake as fuck. Just a slightly more nuanced strategy than in previous attempts.
