Dilemma

Do you ever get the feeling that you know something from somewhere but you don't know what it is?

Wow, I'm articulate. NOT.

It's kind of like when you're watching a movie and you see an actor and you're like "Oh, what movie do I know him from?" That sort of thing happens to me a lot (and I've gotten really good at the name-another-character-played-by-that-actor-whose-name-I-don't-know game). Today for example.

We just got in a copy of The Fetch by.... *lacks Aella's uncanny ability to name the author of any book she's ever read* .... you know, the one that wrote A Certain Slant of Light... ugh. Fine. *Googles* Laura Whitcomb, that's it. And I know I've read a book which mentions fetches before. I've been google-ing and wikipedia-ing for about an hour now, trying to find out what it is.

I think it could be from:

- one of the Wheel of Time books by Robert Jordan (but not really, I'm pretty sure those are Fades....)
- Foundling by... that guy... who draws and writes.... *sighs and googles* D. M. Cornish. But it's probably just one of those technical terms that abound in that book and isn't really what I'm talking about at all.


So if anyone knows of any books with Fetches in them, I'd greatly appreciate it if you'd share. And also, I'll probably read The Fetch and review it because it looks interesting. I hope it's not like a Certain Slant of Light which I liked in the beginning but then didn't at the end.

ALL THE TIME.

Especially when I have a piece of music in my head, and can't figure out what it's from.

Yeah, I'm always drawing connections between things I watch and read. Like, Sam/Dean from Supernatural, who used to be on Gilmore Girls.
