Reactions and Reviews
This SND zine has a familiar premise—amnesiac Catherine sequestered for years after the events of 3rd season; Diana keeping silent in doubt that Catherine will ever recover, not wanting to get Vincent’s hopes up; Vincent in a downward spiral of loss and grief—but you’ve never seen it better or more thoughtfully done. The anonymous author writes with pro confidence and authority to produce a multi-layered, perceptive rendition of many fans’ fondest dream—Catherine’s restoration to Vincent. Diana gets compassionate, perceptive Michael (remember Michael?) as a consolation prize. Vincent here does little but suffer, but he does so persuasively; Diana is well characterized. Catherine’s heart is wiser than her memory-deprived mind, and it takes her some time to fully believe in what she feels—that she and this strange...person have an abiding connection that nothing can alter.
