Always Music in the Air by Bossy Marmalade

'Thinking is something he has to struggle to do here; it doesn't slide easily along the patterns of black and white, it doesn't adhere easily to curtains and sheets of red.' A surreal interlude that captures Lynch's brand of weirdness in a way that most fanfiction for this series just misses

[Added 04/08/2009; Drama; 1000-2500; Twin Peaks; Characters: Dale Cooper, dwarf from Black Lodge, Chet Desmond]

The Tender Boughs of Innocence by Amatara

'This corpse was in worse shape than the first, but the connection was unmistakable: those same tight, intricate shapes, chiseled in bloody streaks across the torso. Albert was reminded, suddenly and vividly, of the spirograph he'd owned as a kid.' A suitably spooky casefic, with perfect characterisation for the younger Albert as he investigates his first Blue Rose case. The cameos from Fire Walk With Me & the series are a bonus

[Added 04/10/2013; Drama; 2500-6000; Twin Peaks; Characters: Albert Rosenfield, Chet Desmond, Denise Bryson, Gordon Cole, Dale Cooper]
