I went to the 1994 and 1995 Center for Talented Youth camps run by the Johns Hopkins University. There's a crazy little youth culture that springs up out of CTY with heavy traditions and music and cult happenings taking off like wildfire. "Bizarre Love Triangle" is one of the canon songs, the music that always has to happen and stays the same from year to year, site to site. I don't remember it from then, but I was collecting the canon songs in late 2000 and early 2001. This song was new to me when I was first falling in love with Darkside. This song was new to me when my heartsister and I both fell in love with Darkside at the same time. The title of the song spoke to me, and brought back memories of all the bizarre love triangles I've ever been in, starting with pyrogenic and boojum and the Lady E.

This song follows me everywhere. It's one of my desert island songs. A lot of canon songs are desert island songs for me. They stick with you.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?

-- "The Question Song", Anne McCaffrey
