After spending the better part of yesterday's evening browsing through the various fandom related icon communities of Livejournal.com I felt like the proverbial kid in the candy store. Lots of sweets, lots of pretties, but nothing seemed right...

So I finally retreated to the more familiar drawers of my own hard disc (which, apart from approximately five zillions of Ewan McGregor pics also contains various fannish stuff *g*) and came up with this one. Coop. Everybody's favourite mystery-obsessed FBI Agent before the day that other guy entered the screen...

Though I was practically born into fandom (my Dad is an even bigger genre fan than me) and enjoyed many a series, ranging from classic Star Trek to Quantum Leap, Twin Peaks was the first one I ever loved with all my heart for all its eccentricity and its dark, surrealistic beauty. The shocking perfection of its ending.

Despite the wavering quality of its second season, Twin Peaks seems one those few shows which have managed to come full circle. Besides the bitter irony, there is also a certain tragic quality about Cooper's fate. He sets out as boyscout traveling the netherworld, interested in darkness but yet incorrupted, and falls not because of the temptations of evil but because of his pure, innocent love for a woman.

May your soul find peace, Coop. Wherever you are.
