My Dearest Accident
I reach for you; I’m almost there,
Hunting with the moon.
I cursed my fate. Did I come too late?
Or did you leave too soon?
Did I save you or you save me?
No paths to where we are.
One moves toward love or moves away.
While wishing on a star.
We face our fears and move through those
And gather up the years,
And cast away our life’s sorrows.
In a well too deep for tears.
It’s all true then; it’s all true now,
Thirty years and gone.
You’re still my dearest accident,
The star I’m wishing on.
And a beautifully poetic Drabble/Tidbit

Fan Fiction Redux
There are 30 years worth of stories floating around the internet. Classic, Season 3, SND, Crossover, Alternate Universe, First time, STEAM, to name a few. Zines have been around just as long.
We celebrate the authors who have given us these riches. As long as we believe, these stories will never die. They will continue to inspire new ones and revive old favorites.
Joan Stephens, Trisha Kehoe, Nan Dibble, Barbara Hill, led the charge, and countless others will be remembered by the reader's curiosity for Catherine and her Vincent.
They will live on in cyberspace and in the written word.
30 Years Gone - But Not Forgotten
The tears have all been shed now
We've said our last goodbyes
The show's been blessed and laid to rest
And now we feel alone.
So we gather every year, sharing memories
Stories, art, crafts and more
They are more than just our comrades
Fellow fans, many best friends
They'll still be heard in the videos we share,
The stories we write, pictures we draw
When we review them on our own
We never will forget them
For they made us who we are
Actors, Writers, artists, poets
Fans forever, friends for life
Beauty and the Beast, 30 years 2017
Artists abound in the Beauty and the Beast universe. Beth Blighton, Rita Terrell, Barbara Gipson, Rosemarie Hauer, Anna Deavers Kelley, and many others have adorned pages in zines and sites all over the internet.
30 years we've seen them draw our Tunnel family in happiness and tears. They continue to inspire new artists and authors with their creativity.
We've had our share of poets too. Peggy Garvin, Lynette Combs, Jody Boyle, Nancy.
We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams. The poets help us Keep The Dream Alive. Poets and artists keep Catherine and Vincent real.
The Magic Lives
My hands weave pictures, rugs and tales
My friends encourage, oft regale
My computer tells me what to do
On days where other jobs I rue
I adore the face, that one so rare
I love the tales that make me care
The scripts and sets, the people sooth
And lend a universal truth
I watch with joy and heartfelt pain
Each ep a voyage loved again
They're memories that never pale
Bright moments on a New York scale
And always, always, I'm aware
This 30th Anniversary shared
Is monumental like the show
Lit candles flicker - but always glow
"Almost With You."
Lee Holdridge, who composed the music for Beauty and the Beast, also composed many other wonderful works, including a collaboration with Carol Connors (who wrote the lyrics).
It resonates with anyone who loved the story behind our series.
