He was sent to market by his mistress, and the little girl went with him. An ordinary shopping trip, and he heads for home with a full basket. The little girl stops them along the way to pluck a few wildflowers from a meadow just off the worn dirt path. The action brings a smile to his lips, as she is one of only a few things in his life that give him cause to smile. His clothes are unfamiliar to him, his hair is growing, but the sudden warmth of her hand slipping into his own is a constant and a comfort, as is the innocent smile she casts up at him.

His hair has grown even more, and his clothes are even more unfamiliar. But his constant is gone, his comfort is gone. He looks down at her with sadness as she lies, unnaturally still, on an unlit pyre. A few wildflowers are woven in her golden hair, and her mouth is curved ever-so-slightly in the ghost of one last innocent smile. He reaches out and takes her hand, though her warmth is gone too, and the small hand clasped in his own is heavy, pale, and so, so cold
ONE. DAY. MOOOOOORE.
Because I’m an evil human being, I drew this based on how I drew Enjolras on my poster and a still from a clip they showed as part of the 10th Anniversary Concert. Done on 8 1/2 x 11 printer paper in pencil and oil pastel.
Since I’m super excited for the new Les Mis movie, and also for seeing the stage production this coming January, I started drawing an absolute behemoth of a poster. This took me a good six hours. My designs of the characters are musical-based but are also from my imagination.
My sister and I RPing.
- My sister (as Dean Winchester): I rock!
- Me (breaking character): Psst. Dean is full of self-loathing.
- My sister (as Dean Winchester): I suck!
Stop Calling Meeeeee
- Phone: *ring ring*
- Me: Buddy the Elf. What's your favorite color?
- Automated Message: Hi. This is Mitt Romney.
- Me: Go away, asshole!

My Halloween costume for this year/a cosplay I would love to wear to a con someday. The one and only Dr. Jonathan Crane/Scarecrow, as he appeared, portrayed by Cillian Murphy, in Batman Begins.
I got my braces off! I look like this now:
Also, I’m getting ready for Halloween. My costume is NEARLY ready.
I would ask THIS question…
But I haven’t made it yet. I really need to get some burlap…
The many faces of Charlotte La Bouff.
#I think one of my favortie things about charlotte la bouff is the fact she has this fantastically broad array of facial expressions #so often you see females being portrayed with such a limited range #basic happy basic sad basic laughing basic surprise #in order to maintain this natural cool prettiness that women are supposed to have #and charlottes gorgeous but shes also whacky and incredibly animated #shes jam packed with personality and a great supporting character #i typoed favorite in the first tag and dont care
yes, this, good
Lottie is the best
Plus she’s one of the few rich characters I’ve seen who isn’t the villain. She’s spoiled but isn’t spoiled rotten. She’s demanding, superficial, and a bit on the dramatic side, but she’s genuinely a good person who doesn’t give a single fuck that her best friend is a black waitress. Oh, and when she realizes said best friend is in love with the prince she’s been chasing after the entire movie? She doesn’t get angry or petty or jealous. Lottie is genuinely happy for Tiana and does her damnedest to help her and Naveen get their happily ever after, then celebrates the fuck out of Tiana finally reaching her dreams. How often do we get to see a spoiled yet utterly caring girl portrayed on screen? A 1920s Southern debutante with more depth to her character than her appearance? A woman who can be feminine and rich but still bold, brave, hilariously quirky, and ACTUALLY GIVES MORE OF A SHIT ABOUT HER BEST FRIEND THAN THE DAMN PRINCE? A PRINCE SHE THINKS SHE’S BEEN DATING and then it turns out it was all fake scam to get her dad’s money. Does Lottie sit down and weep about it? Plot a scheme to steal him away from her best friend? Nope, just gonna kiss that gross frog and risk warty lips/frog herpes/dude she’s kissing an amphibian all because she loves and cares about Tiana.
ALL IN A CHILDREN’S FILM.
Lottie is one of my favorite Disney girls for always and forever.
LOTTIE I CANT LOTTIE
My mom is an Elementary School Librarian. She was talking to some first graders about the upcoming election, and this happened.
- 6-year-old Boy: *raises hand*
- Mom: Yes?
- 6-year-old Boy: I'm not voting for Romney because he's going to ruin the middle class.
- Mom: You're not quite old enough to vote.
- 6-year-old Boy: Well, I'm not going to vote for him anyway.
