poetic memory

"i am not sure that i exist, actually. i am all the writers that i have read, all the people that i have met, all the women that i have loved; all the cities that i have visited, all my ancestors... perhaps i would have liked to be my father, who wrote and had the decency of not publishing. nothing, nothing, my friend; what have i told you: i am not sure of anything, i know nothing... can you imagine that i not even know the date of my death?"

This is my sister, Marilyn Marie Fenwick. She is MISSING in South Korea.

I don’t know all the details of the circumstances of her disappearance, but I’ll give you everything I do know. First some physical description.

She is 24 years old. She occasionally presents herself as male. She is approximately 5’2” or around 160cm tall. She weighs under 100 pounds and has a very slim build. She is flat chested but sometimes wears push up bras. Her skin is a light olive tone. She has colored black hair of uneven length and she also wears extensions occasionally. Her eyes are hazel but she sometimes wears colored circle lenses. She is from Amarillo, Texas, but she may also say she’s from the Dallas-Fort Worth area. She is very skinny and unlikely to be able to defend herself. The photos above show what she looked like the day she left the US.

Now for some details on her disappearance.

On April 15th, 2014, she left the Rick Husband Airport in Amarillo, Texas. She had one stop in Houston and a layover in San Francisco from where her plane departed for Seoul, South Korea around 10-11am PST. THIS IS THE LAST TIME ANYONE HEARD FROM HER. She went to visit a friend or boyfriend in Pohang, South Korea. His name is Jin and he allegedly works in construction and does cosmetics on the side. The US embassy informed us that cosmetics are a common ploy for human trafficking in South Korea.. We are assuming she made it to Seoul because she last texted me right before take off but we have no idea if she made it to Pohang or not. The US Embassy has been contacted and I believe the FBI may be getting involved. There is reasonable cause for concern that she is in danger as she has made no attempts to contact anyone.

The following is contact information Marilyn sent us about Jin. We attempted to call the phone number but a female voiced answer machine was all we could reach. If you know anything about this phone number or address, please contact the authorities and tell me if at all possible. I will relay any information to my father and he will send it through the necessary channels.

Elysian 307, Cheolgang-ro 713-12, ocheon-eup, nam-bu, pohang-si, gyeongsangbuk-do, south korea.

Marilyn has a twitter account which she was supposed to use to contact us but she has not used it since jokingly replying to me when she created it. The account is @explodingwolves she also has a phone number +14692697692 but she disconnected before leaving because it was a US locked phone.

Please help get the information out. Reblog, cross post, translate, tell your cat, ANYTHING to get the word out. She and I have our differences, but I want her to be safe. We’ve even gotten our estranged mother involved because in the end, none of our differences matter. Again, let me or the authorities know if you have any information. I appreciate your time.

Bronies already made NSFW pictures of Stellar Eclipse, even though Sylvain Portelance, the OC’s creator and VA who has spinal muscular atrophy, and his mother asked people not to do so.

Also, apparently putting that OC on the show, even though it was a simple request from the Make-A-Wish Foundation, is “political bullshit” and has no place in MLP.

I know I usually don’t post such negative stuff on this blog, but holy shit.

i went to four barnes & noble stores in two states looking for the opposite of loneliness by marina keegan. none of them had it, nor were there employees that looked like they had any idea what i was talking about. “do you want it for a school project or something?”

the first independent bookstore i called today — a downright lovely place called “changing hands;” it has a coffee shop attached to it — said “oh, i’m almost certain we have that. come on by, i’ll put a copy on hold for you.” 10 minutes later, i had it in my hands, & got this bookmark too.

that, my friends, sums up the book business.
