    Summary

    If you’re old enough to remember being a child, sitting cross-legged on a hardwood floor and opening a hollow plastic vhs case, you will understand the horror of being the tape. You will understand the sudden shock of your thin, clear plastic window being smashed open on the cold, hard ground. You will understand the weakness, the fear, of feeling something so much larger and more powerful reach into your broken-open mind and grab hold of your very being. You will understand the helpless, weeping horror of feeling your thoughts being pulled from your skull, unreeling like ribbon on a rack, feeling your soul being ripped away from its home. You will understand the abject wrongness of your memories unspooling, being tugged like magnetic filament tape from the well-loved places they rest only to pool messily on the floor.

    You will understand the distress and terror of being Wilbur Cross in Wiggly’s green, grinning hands.

    (or, alternately, Wilbur Cross and his fiancee- before, during, and after Black Friday)

    Summary

    It starts like this: with Enjolras's father, drunk and desperate that his only daughter marry before she becomes a spinster, accosting a wealthy-looking stranger at the market and directing his attention to her.

    With a thoughtless boast, her father crying, "Look at her there in the sunlight, look at her hair, see how she turns straw into gold? Isn't she beautiful?", too loud and too bold for the crowded marketplace.

    With a knock at the door, some days later, and a man in the king's livery standing at attention on the other side, reading a decree, and the sudden sense that the world has dropped out from under Enjolras's feet.
