fic fodder

Fantastic, personal little article in Salon that I hadn't seen before--Like a Virgin, by a woman who suffered a traumatic head injury and amnesia and had to relearn her life, and whose boyfriend behaved with the classic sweetness and sensitivity of the hurt/comfort lover familiar to us from fan-fiction. Ha! This lends the prop of plausibility, at last, to all those h/c lovefests and amnesia fics I've wallowed in over the years.

Article tag: "Having sex for the first time after amnesia was like the real first time, but without Journey playing in the background."

Worth getting a Salon day-pass for. Also, if I haven't mentioned it before: Salon is an ass-kicking media resource, worth paying for. I recommend subscribing. You can always halve or, uh, trilve the cost by going in on a shared subscription with friends.
