I was convinced that Caleb was my perfect, other half! Because he was in my dreams, you know! I did everything I could to stay with him! I was even prepared to leave earth… my home… including you, to stay with him! I was ready! But Caleb… He decided that he didn’t want that to happen! And so, he left me. It was sad and unfair. It hurt so much! I thought that after Caleb, there’d be nothing left. But then, I discovered that my heart could still love! And that’s partially thanks to you! That’s how it is. Hearts can heal, Will!
David backstage with Peter Cook & Dudley Moore after a 1973 performance of Behind the Fridge, a Satirical review (followed P.Cook’s Beyond the Fringe run). DB apparently asked Dud (consummate tickler of the ivories) to accompany him on a Hunky Dory album track, but there’s no record of a reply. Would have been pretty good, I wager. (Guardian pictures from Kevin Cann book, Any Day Now)
Pete & Dud also had a great TV series ‘Not Only … But Also’ .
Ps! Peter was also the Eminence Gris behind Private Eye, UK satire fortnightly since 1960, still going strong. PPS! Do not adjust your horizontal or diagonal (?) hold.
sometimes, there’s no star-crossed epic love needed. have some of my favorite canon ship, peter/cornelia! they had a very nice dynamic, especially after the kitschy melodramatic disaster thing cornelia had with caleb. I’m a sucker for healthy and nice relationships that are fun and sweet, with no secret identity troubles and the whole deciding thing. also, peter’s a great character and terribly underused. I have no idea if he ever finds out about the whole guardian thing because I stopped reading after the beginning of the new power arc, so I had to do something with both of them. it may look extremely dramatic, but it’s just that way because I couldn’t decide on facial expressions.
