I talk to them, work out our differences and eventually befriend them. Our bond of friendship and love grows deeper than we thought possible. We spend years together, it’s almost like we know each other better than ourselves.
Then I begin to destroy their life slowly. They trust me so much, I know everything about them. Everything. Knowledge is power and I can use it to ruin every moment of their life and the best part of it all? I’m the very last person they’d expect (and that makes the betrayal oh so much sweeter)
The finale of my whole scheme is when they are utterly broken and they turn to the one person left in their life, me. I will reveal my diabolical scheme to them, laughing as I stroke their cat that loves me now, wearing the lucky shirt they thought they lost and high fiving the family and friends who disowned them. Then it begins to rain and they are the only one without an umbrella. I go get ice cream without them and they are left sobbing in the street, soaked. It is their birthday.
Robin Williams dying is a really, really sad thing. I don’t think I’ve ever been as sad about a celebrity’s death before and learning how he died is all the more heartbreaking.
Following the news of his death there were a lot of posts with ‘Genie, you’re free’ (the first was the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ twitter I think). The first time I saw it it made me cringe. Though well intended, it’s a horrible choice of words, not to mention a potentially dangerous one.
Yesterday this letter was posted through our door.
Let’s ignore the font, the spelling error and the fact I’m not sure how flowers makes a place better for children (flowers are pretty but I’ve found most children are only interested in them if they can pick them/give them to parents/rip them apart)….
So I went outside to see what was happening. There were about 5 people huddled around planting the flowers, I left quickly (to avoid conversations). I checked today and this is it.
Yep. there it is.
In all its glory. It’s not even attached to my yard, it’s about three houses away. Did everyone get one of these letters? Surely that’s too much watering.
I’m not accusing you of not really trying Roy Davies but I don’t think you did. I don’t think you tried at all.
Mostly cartoons, lots and lots of cartoons (basically all of the stuff on Cartoon Network in the 90’s - you know, the really good stuff. Also Invader Zim). Anime (pokemon/digimon mainly), video games. I drew a lot of neopets too. Here’s a thing I drew when I was … 15?
(Is this even relevant to the question? I’m showing it anyway)
Do you ever just stop and wonder? Also, being an ANON IS FOR BABIES I COME RIGHT OUT AND ASK AND I DONT KNOW WHATS HAPPENING ohgodpleasemakethemadness stop do you like puppies or kittens or both who is your favorite author and book and have you read the Lies of Locke Lamora its a pretty sweet book do you like boardgames i like boardgames whats your favorite one ever thought about making one this is one massive sentence oh god running out of space space gotta get to space SPACCCCEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Stop and wonder? About what? That question is too open for me, it makes me think about things … big things. I’m scared. Both puppies and kittens, I don’t know if I have a favourite author, even though I read a ton - I like Jim Butcher, I’ve never heard of Lies of Locke Lamora, I don’t have enough attention span for boardgames - I do like mouse trap though.
How long have you been drawing? I only started taking my drawing seriously a couple of years ago, and I don't know if I'll ever catch up. Also, did you take any lessons or art classes, or are you self-taught?
Umnmm, I’m not sure, I’ve always liked drawing, even as a wee young one (I once took paints to the last day of primary school where they let us bring in toys from home to play with, they wouldn’t let me paint though). Don’t worry about catching up to anyone else, just enjoy doing what you’re doing and keep working at it. Art is fun :-)
I have a degree in fine art ‘3’ I left school with no real idea of what I wanted to do and liked art so I went with that (don’t take career advice from me, I am just winging life, what am I even doing? Look at all that debt).
