caught between Baroque and a hard place
Alek Wek & Lily Cole at Christian Dior HC Fall 2005
The old woman had only pretended to be so kind; she was in reality a wicked witch, who lay in wait for children, and had only built the little house of bread in order to entice them there. When a child fell into her power, she killed it, cooked and ate it, and that was a feast day with her. Witches have red eyes, and cannot see far, but they have a keen scent like the beasts, and are aware when human beings draw near. When Hansel and Gretel came into her neighborhood, she laughed with malice, and said mockingly: ‘I have them, they shall not escape me again!’”
— excerpt from “Hansel and Gretel” by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm

#i love how this makes it seem as if they are all shooting the same movie#emma is the girl looking for a challenge in life when she meets tom and rupert#rupert is a runaway who recently dropped off the army #and tom is a very intelligent computer hacker #they rob banks and other high security stuff and she joins them #that’s when we meet dan’s character who is the youngest bank president ever #and who’s about to lose a few billion pounds #except he and tom’s char are bffs from childhood #and meanwhile emma is torn between her partners in crime#except she totes ends up with rupert #cool stuff that will never happen
It’s been over two weeks since mankind failed to vote for “Persephone” as a name for one of Pluto’s moons - my way of coping with the disappointment was drawing Hades’ reaction, obviously.
THIS IS ACTUALLY VERY UPSETTING

yes but why can’t i find cute frilly nightgowns that aren’t stupidly expensive
Tell me about it.
Why can’t I find any nightgowns at all? Like I get that styles have changed, but I will never accept that over-sized t-shirts count as gowns :|
