The L Word : Behind the Scenes

The L Word Bette Porter Tina Kennard

Tomb Raider – Bette Porter Tina Kennard

10 Comments

“I can’t believe she’s gone, Bette.” Tina says so sadly. I put my arm around her, and after a moment she leans against me. I feel her arm around my waist. I kiss the top of her head and feel miserable. Dana had finally found herself. So fucking cruel to lose her so young.

“Whatever you do please don’t burn me up and put me in a jar.”

“Okay.” Tina laughs at me a little. “But what makes you think I’ll decide that.”

“Because. . .” I turn her toward me. “Because I’m asking you to.”

“That wasn’t fair of me, I’m sorry.”  Then, she opens her purse and checks her phone for the text coming in.

“Let’s not snap at each other. It’s a fucking awful enough day without it. But like it or not, stand next to me and pretend like you’re praying – and reading a text – if you have to.”

“Helena wants to know what we want to put back in there? They’ve emptied the ashes into the cup.”

“God, what a good question.” I bow my head in prayer. “I never thought I’d say this to you, but could you try to fake it a bit more?”

Tina nods her head half paying attention to me, but steps closer as we bow our heads to cover our crimes. I look over Tina’s shoulder.

    Well my friend, you worked that one out quite well. So proud of you and your writings similar to spider webs, so precise yet riveting in beauty and flow. I laughed my butt off picturing in my mind that scene in the church playing out with the ashes and the kiss. It was an ending fit for the beauty of Dana and who she had become.
    Ahhh, a turn toward home….
    I like how you introduced the letter and conversation with Tina as a point in her life that I think Bette deserves an explanation for. The history between them warrants it. Hendick is still too fresh.
    I’m beaming for the journey. Your voice and style are incredibly right on with this story writing.
    Thank you for your gifts to us!

    Bette kissing Helena and Tina walking on them. Hilarious! I pay good money to see that! I am so glad that Tina is going to talk to Bette about what happened to Lucy and her. Thanks for making Henry not there during the talk.

    Another home run! So funny,witty but macabre and sad. Although, I wouldn’t like it if someone stole my loved one’s ashes but the scene was still freakin’ funny.
