I get the impression that every woman who’s into women has stories like the one that plays out in Got A Light? I know I do. Dark nights outside parties; strangled conversations about feelings; the creeping, confusing anxieties of identity and relationships.
A real moment
Got A Light? captures all of these in a short but engrossing Twine. The writing feels natural, evoking both the discomfort and the closeness of its central characters with ease. Every so often, one will take a drag on their cigarette, or otherwise pause, and the text itself pauses. The tension is palpable.
This forced start and stop imitates the juddering flow of a complex conversation, achieving an achingly real crystallisation of a familiar moment.
