'Right. I look fine. Except I don’t,’ said Zora, tugging sadly at her man’s nightshirt. This was why Kiki had dreaded having girls: she knew she wouldn’t be able to protect them from self-disgust. To that end she had tried banning television in the early years, and never had a lipstick or a woman’s magazine crossed the threshold of the Belsey home to Kiki’s knowledge, but these and other precautionary measures had made no difference. It was in the air, or so it seemed to Kiki, this hatred of women and their bodies— it seeped in with every draught in the house; people brought it home on their shoes, they breathed it in off their newspapers. There was no way to control it.

Just tried Turkish Delight for the first time. 

It was good, but not “Sell out my family to the White Queen” good.

An anon requested I draw characters from my favorite contemporary novel, but I draw Eleanor and Park all the time. Instead, I drew Cather and Levi from Fangirl by rainbowrowell. They’re very adorable.

Whenever Andiree draws my characters, I sigh so loud, people can hear me in Wyoming.

Fangirling by me on dA

My friend Bethany showed me this while I was driving tonight, and I started shouting, “Oh my God!”
OH MY GOD.
This is phenomenal! THIS LEVI. THIS REAGAN. CATH’S HIPS.
So, so good.

Killing a man should be harder than waving a length of pipe in their direction. It should take long enough for one’s conscience to get in the way. — Hugh Howey, The Unraveling  (via quoted-books)
