Them Horrors be Everywhere: For the love of Anjali

This tale is inspired by the 1999 film: Dreaming of Joseph Lees, and the singer-songwriter-model: Veronika Modesta. Both of them kept me in awe for days and weeks and years after I’ve chanced upon them. This is my strange homage to the beautiful inspiration they bestowed upon me that sparked my imagination.

It’s about asking the ultimate question of what we would do for love and how far we would go to prove it to the one we desire. One of the best TV series that presents this well is Star Trek Voyager S05E17: The Disease. As Seven of Nine says: Physiologically, it bears a striking similarity to disease. A series of biochemical responses that trigger an emotional cascade, impairing normal functioning.

Two things I learned from writing this story, which I never knew had names for them, were Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID) and acrotomophilia. And they are far from being fictitious.
