This week Gunwallace has given us the theme to Molly Lusc: Dark shades of grey, shadows in the night, penumbra, tenebrae, and twilight. We move in the not-quit-night, keeping our actions secret and behind closed doors. No one must know! The dual life and secretive nature of Molly Lusc is well summed up with this creepy noir tune of whispers and shadows.
