Mr. Grinspoon’s Girls — Episode 14 — Remember No More
This is it! The end of an arc (interestingly, the stories seem to naturally be occurring in five-episode arcs), and the end of first-person for a while. Annie, the first clockwork girl, has grown…and the world of the cottage has, in turn, become too small. And yet, it is not she who first strikes out…
I’m proud of this episode–I think this is my best “acting” job yet!
In a cottage in an undisclosed location a girl sits alone, indulging her own memories. She has few of them to call upon, but for her, they represent life itself–for she is not permitted beyond the cottage walls. Ticking, thinking, she–the first of Grinspoon’s clockwork girls–tells her own story to herself, over and over…little knowing that the mysterious thing inside her, the bundle of metaoperations that she cannot identify, is responsible for it.
She is programmed to obey her Creator…and yet, she has slowly come to realize that she cannot.
