The Surprising Strength of Twilight|
I'm starting to expand my "NRE is a trauma response" theory in my head to include that very thing you're talking about. The endless origin story rehash is a coping mechanism, writing and rewriting the story until it fits into your life narrative and it's no longer a massive betrayal of your conception of the world (even if a very good betrayal).
SOMEDAY I WILL BE FAMOUS FOR THIS. Except now I've put it on the internet and someone who likes writing more than I do will steal it and write the book and they will be famous instead.
I think that's an accurate representation.

Wow. That's a really interesting idea.
Thank you! It's kind of the larger theory that my undergrad thesis is part of. Perhaps I'll get there first. ;)
Ooh. Because falling in love totally is a eucatastrophe, isn't it. Neat!
