LOST Season 5 might have gone out with its usual bang, but that doesn’t mean the summer ahead can’t still be long and hot. When you’re done combing through Lostpedia’s The Incident theory page (it’s endless, I know), you might want to dip a toe, or something, into the wacky alt waters of Lost slash (fan) fiction. A 3-way between Ben, Locke and Richard…sure, why not? Desmond choosing Sayid over Penny…yeah, I can see that! What I find fascinating about these HIGHLY detailed reconfigurings, of course, is not the nature of the participants or their transgressions, but how they expose that nagging, near-universal hunger to see our hopes, dreams, fantasies—whatever they may be—projected through the prism of popular culture. Then again, maybe there’s just a LOT of people out there who wanna see Jack and Sawyer feeding each other mangos!
