Changeling: Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars
"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
― Oscar Wilde
The glitz, the glamour, Hollywood has always held an allure few could resist. People dream of making it bit or making it all, tossing their whole lives to that chance at fame and fortune. To live forever on the big screen, a living legend, to have a star emblazoned with their name in brass and charcoal-colored terrazzo on the Walk of Fame. It's not just a dream, it's the dream for many.
But this isn't Hollywood as it was. No, despite the way we like to think of it Hollywood's Golden Age was decades ago, more dream now than it ever way before. Modern Hollywood swallows up wide-eyed optimists and hopeful stars and shits them out to flow down into the gutter with everything else. People get used and abused by this city and burn out or worse.
But halfway between the gutter and the stars there is so much inspiration, creativity, fear, excitement, wonder and despair and it is intoxicating to drink in. This is a land of powerful emotions and the fae flock to it like moths to a flame; or maybe more aptly butterflies as the case may be. How much can they take in before they get burned?
