Notes: It’s only a first part, there are two more, but I don’t have time to read them this week and this one was awesome, so rec it is. Time traveling fic, with a great plot, feels and very interesting new character, Bookworm. It was well written and original and I can’t wait to read the other parts! Also, there is death in this part. Hopefully, it will be fixed in the sequel! - K

She reached up and wiped them from her cheeks with the cuff of her sleeve, not taking the chance of them dropping onto a page and spoiling the book. Derek didn’t know what to make of it. When she reached the bottom of the page, she closed her eyes again and sniffled gently.

“Broken soul,” she whispered. “Poor little broken soul, surrounded by so much blood. He hides it all with smiles and laughter, but he’s surrounded by death and he blames himself. Poor little broken soul.”
She opened her eyes and looked directly at Derek, a fierceness behind the tears.
Some published and unpublished images from my NY Times travel story, Los Angeles, as a Pedestrian. I loved this shoot because I got to roam around LA with my Mamiya 7 for three days. Pretty fun. A few people have emailed me asking if I did in fact shoot this all on film, and the answer is yes.
