... and affection it is that brings me here, no doubt. Even a frigid, self-sufficing man needs something of this interchange if he is not to die in his unmechanical part: natural philosophy, music, dead men's conversation, is not enough.

(Stephen, in PC)

To say I don't like Stephen as a character would not be true at all, but I recognise too much of myself in him to be in any danger of romanticising him. The reserve, the cold, observant, academic view of life, unless something truly goes against his principles, the awareness of some darkness threatening within; the need for privacy, the dislike to feel himself indebted to anyone... even the tendency to be (*cough*) something less than orderly. Falling - hard - for someone he knows is going to hurt him. Perhaps this is why I, like he, was so instantly drawn to Jack's much more candid, impetuously enthusiastic character...


# Chinese zodiac, gacked from czaria... It doesn't match a hundred percent, and I'm not sure how much probability there can be in assigning a bunch of characteristics to people born within a whole year, but I'm much closer to the Rat than to what the typical Gemini is supposed to be. A streak of the artistic perhaps, but little else fits.
