This is a non-tiling Twitter background; set your background color to black. (To see this background live, visit @SideStepsTEST. Note that the background of that account usually changes everyday without notice.)

Ah, Jack and Locke. Cosmic soul-mates to this day, even when one has been taken over by death. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the real relationship on this show. Not the quadrangle, not the countless other pairings. It's a relationship that has always been wrought with intensity and strife. This is where LOST's soul has always lived, and by the looks of it, that's where it will stay.

Huge shout-out to @samprietti for the concept of this background! I like this because in the actual scene, both characters are bathed in darkness, which blurs edges and translates really well in a Twitter background. You get that really nice fade on Locke's face that, when paired with a black background, blends perfectly. 'Twas not without a little tweaking, though, since crisp screencaps are hard to find, especially in night scenes.

Now there's no new episode next week, which may or may not be a good thing. Gives us all time to get back to our real lives, I suppose. :) Personally, I feel the longer we can put off the finale (within reason), the better. 'Ab Aeterno' will be re-running next Tuesday, so we won't go completely without. Namaste, peeps!
