sometimes I realize there are people on my dash heavily burdened with horrible things

bad relationships

mental illnesses

dangerous situations

and I just desperately hope that you’ll be okay, you’ll find the strength to continue and do the right thing for yourself, you’ll make it through and be happy

all of you

Yes, all of this.

Enchanted forest

Part of the reason I’m so fascinated by the dark mori / black forest mori style is that it’s so quintessentially fairy tale witch. Yes, follow me into the forest, of course you can trust me, here, have a cookie and some tea. Why do I have a person-sized birdcage in the corner of the room? No reason. Nothing for you to worry about. More tea?

'Interview With The Vampire: Claudia's Story' (graphic novel)

'A richly-illustrated adaptation of Anne Rice's novel, told through the eyes of the vampire Claudia, who was just a little girl when she was turned by the vampire Lestat. Though she spends many years of happiness with her two vampire fathers, she gradually grows discontent with their insistence upon treating her like a little girl, even though she has lived as long as any mortal and her lust to kill is certainly no less than theirs…'

I’ve only just discovered this, and despite this story being oh-so-many years old, I’d still like to read it. I must admit that I’ve never been a huge fan of manga artwork, but this is something quite beautiful. The illustrations are so lush and full of detail and the decision to present everything in sepia tone (with red as a spot colour for blood) is genius. Heck, I might have to buy it just for the portrayal of moody Louis. He always was my favourite of Rice’s vampires (sorry Lestat, you’re too arrogant).

I own this manga, and it is gorgeous

I really want to put a holiday tree up this year. We’ve not done so for two years, because Kittens of Chaos. The RealHusband has doubts about the safety of a tree this year, what with Vlad’s favorite game being "stalk, ambush, and wrestle the kitchen chairs into submission".

no matter how old I get

I will always be at least slightly convinced that I’m capable of hurting a stuffed animal’s feelings

Toy Story mentally fucked a generation of kids.

You can’t blame Toy Story for it; some of us were doing this for decades before that movie existed. Maybe we should blame The Velveteen Rabbit?

(Every night, I say goodnight to all my fuzzy critters, and discuss who is going to be the bedtime bear or bunny. I have been known to bring four bears (in addition to Clovis and Prudence) into the bedroom, much to the amusement of the RealHusband. But if the Fuzzy Cabal can’t agree on who’s turn it is for nightmare protection duty, I’m not going to just arbitrarily make a decision among them! What if I make the wrong decision?!)

(Hi, I’m your Auntie Jilli, I’m 45, have a wonderful husband, and sleep with stuffed animals. BECAUSE SOME THINGS ARE IMPORTANT THROUGHOUT YOUR ENTIRE LIFE.)
