Frederik Peeters: Pilules bleues



His eyes are huge Tremendous balls of a beautiful fury of ife Vibrant with hope and wonder completely without guile They are set in his face The Pursuits of Lord Kit Cavanaugh (The Cavanaughs like saucers from space Only identifiable at all because they hover so serenely with no intentions toward darting or flight Heooks into you And about you And through you He is amazing And you have romanticized every bit of him Even though his eyes while Fix Her Up (Hot Hammered lovely are really just normalovely child eyes You have turned him into a unicorn a rarity a celestial gift Because he s dying Or if not dying then at Grounding Grounded Theory least close to it Or if not close then ateast he is in some sort of danger He ives under threat And I mean as do we all right But maybe he s at risk than you or anyone else you know Probably Maybe And your heart breaksIt was 1983 when I first heard about AIDS I was in fourth grade It would be another couple years before I realized it was an actual thing and not just a playground game the children played to ostracize their fellows according to the arbitrary rules of the schoolyard a kind of cooties for the Reagan era It had something to do with being gay or being a homo whatever that was But by the sixth grade I knew everything that anyone knew about AIDS and HIV I knew it several times over and so did my classmates We had the privilege of a handful of mandatory school assemblies devoted to the subject I only actually remember two assemblies through junior high the drug one and the AIDS one And we had those two assemblies at east five times each Probably actually I was a sixth grader who had never seen real drugs in real The Four Asian Tigers life and had no idea how one could obtain them but I knew all about pot andudes and angel dust and coke and heroin and acid and how basically if I took any one of them I d probably be swallowing a mug of Drain O within three months I also knew about condoms and monkeys and sailors and homosexuals and dentists and needles and toilet seats and oral sex even though it would be a millennia until I would see a real girl in real Baabwaa and Wooliam life for real naked It was a weird and awkward time AIDS and drugs were all anyone ever talked about for a while The Russians too I guess And then eventually the LA gangs and their inevitable spread south But for a while it was AIDS and drugs Then I was in high school and nobody talked about drugs any Mostly because they were all procuring and consuming drugs probably I still had no idea how one could obtain drugs1 And then I was in high school and Magic Johnson happened and suddenly no one cared about AIDS any either I m sure it was still a thing It had to be I just hadn t heard about it in forever No matter I knew everything about it After all I was in junior high onceThe fact is I don t believe I ve ever known anyone with HIV I ve known people who ve died sure Old age cancers hiking accidents suicides ODs even spontaneous exsanguination Nobody AIDS though And Magic Johnson is still alive so maybe it s not hard to stay alive with HIV But he s rich And who knows Maybe that matters And of course it s possible that they just haven t told me they ve got it Not for fear of judgmentikely but maybe just for whatever the reason is that people don t talk about the very serious things that exert a kind of rule over their Historias de Inmigracion lives Awhile back I was afraid I was going toose a nut or two I didn t really talk about it If you re reading this it s Alabanza likely the first time you ve heard of it Even if we re best friends And man as I write this it s becoming increasingly clear that I really don t know anything about HIV And of course this is all a put on I was well aware exactly how much orittle I know about HIV before sitting down to write But there s still a scent of honesty here because it s the book we re talking about that alerted me to my deficiency on the subject Blue Pills even apart from and above being a fantastic comic dropped hammers into the ceiling of the greenhouse in which I kept and cultivated the entire treasure of my AIDS and HIV knowledgeI didn t know that Blue Pills was autobiographical when I began it And now I ve ruined you for having the same experience as me I didn t realize.

It until maybe two thirds through Then it clicked and the whole thing became amazing That Frederik Peeters was writing this story and writing this story about himself and those he held dear staggered meBacking up slightlyFred meets Cati a few times over the years that comprise their young twenties He s a sometimes shy sometimes exuberant sometimes moody guy try Fantastic autobiographical comic about author Frederik Peeters and his relationship with his HIV positive girlfriend and her son Very moving intense and an over all wonderful comic about the La mythologie selon Game of Thrones lengths one will endure forove The graphics were neat and Craig Thompson esue I especially Golf by the Numbers loved the mammoth near the endwhen iook backward i have the impression of happiness and of a diffuse and permanent pleasure but i know that it s because of movement of the close connection between heavy and ight moments i know that if this realtionship has compared to previous ones it s that it ives that it carries us that it imposes on us its unpredictable rhythm without running out of steam pg 130don t ask for things to happen the way you want be happy with wanting them as they happen Blue Pills was an escape from my busy ife to a ife where someone is suffering from HIV The story was about a man and his girlfriend who Liberty Arrives! live together but the woman has HIV She takes pills that are blue to help her disease They have a child together and the child is HIV positive Throughout the novel the man explains the everyday troubles they go through because of her HIV I felt bad for the child when he wasittle because he had to take medicine that wasn t pleasant He didn t understand why he had to take it The man also went into explain how hard it was for him to play the father figure The girlfriend and he were not married and he wasn t the father type I thought he did a good job I would recommend this to anyone I think people should read this book because people every day suffer from HIV I have pretty mixed feelings about this book I know that some of it stems from having higher expectations than what I actually got It wasn t strictly bad but I don t know that I enjoyed it that muchFirst off I didn t Mary Elizabeth Garrett like the art and found it very off putting from page one It really just didn t do aot for me visually which can make it pretty hard to enjoy a graphic novel Then there s the issue of emotion Given that this book is a real How to Know the Ducks, Geese, and Swans of North America lifeove story of a couple where one party has been diagnosed HIV positive I was expecting this book to make me feel something It was nearly two hundred pages and I think maybe five of those pages gave me those feelings I wanted this book to make me feel something and it didn t and that just may be an issue of my own expectations Of course it may also have been a result of not really Rebellion in Black and White liking the author Not the writing but as an actual person within the context of his story He came off very pretentiousike the kind of person I would be annoyed to spend time with in real Dwarfism life My final issue rests with either the translation or the writing It s hard to tell which when the work was not originally in English The actualanguage used wasn t enjoyable to read and the punctuation was annoying after a few pagesNow for what I actually enjoyed It was nice to see that despite the subject matter that the author was able to avoid doom and gloom was able to make it a truly positive ove story Actually this book is a subject overall that I wish was dealt with both in fiction and non fiction I would ove to see autobiographies and novels both that deal with relationships in the context of HIV I m glad that the author was able to present his own story of something so personal especially when it never once felt to me Polar Bears like he was being disrespectful to Cati s own story He never gave us a why and I am glad for itOverall while I didn t reallyove this book it wasn t strictly a bad book It just wasn t for me I probably wouldn t recommend this to someone but I also would not dissuade someone from reading it Frederik Peeters tells the story of his relationship with his wife Cati and her 3 year old son both of whom are HIV positive He me.
