This is a nonlinear narrative mashup of 4 previously unrelated series, which has elements of horror, nightmares and broken romance.
I have a favorite word, “fugaz,”fleeting, which for 40 years has helped me explain to myself my perception of the world as layers of reality that are always happening at once even though we’re not conscious of them, don’t know about all of them, have forgotten some of them, or just don’t want to think about some of them.
Fugaz, which I have corrupted into a noun, is also my moments of sudden extreme anxiety or memento mori when I feel like I should be worried about something but I can’t remember what it is.
