Funny, I'm re-reading "No One Here Gets Out Alive", and I'm just around the part where Jim and Ray meet up. Ray is a grad student in film/cinematography, and he makes a film featuring his girlfriend, Dorothy. And now, I go on LJ and she is as beautiful as the book's authors said she was.

That's adorable, and I am almost certainly jealous. It's not many couples who last that long.

A true romance.

She was so supportive of him in the early days when he was broke and always believed in him <3
