[Fiction] The making of an Abraham Lincoln movie:

“‘Lincoln has a lot on his plate here. There’s the war, obviously. His son just died, his wife is a compulsive shopper with deep ties to the South—I mean that doesn’t look good for him—and to boot, he’s found himself unable to get his mind off this man. Amid all this chaos and horseshit, there’s a pony. And that pony is love.’

“Pony=Love, Mel scribbled.

“‘And, you know, your postures should change more when you’re together, should melt a little.” He stopped and looked at Miles. ‘Think about how your body responds when you’re with the people you love.’”
