From the author;

1. Fallers - Two people trapped together in one of the twin towers on 9/11

2. Sweet Elizabeth - Elizabeth Bathory and her husband, whose name currently escapes me but who had a monstrous reputation of his own

3. Sopherl - Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie, when they were assassinated

4. Dazzling - Nikola Tesla and the pigeon he fell in love with while he was secluded and living in a hotel room in New York City at the end of his life

There is a story overlaying those initial bases - my relationship with Krystal, in a very broad and conceptual telling, from the start (our relationship began on 9/11/13; Fallers and 9/11 etc.) to the end and after.
