though it's really just musings

“A Coy Smile” - Digital Oil Painting

I imagine Rumple taking Belle somewhere sunny on their honeymoon, or just a random trip for fun, and at one point, she takes off her sunglasses and gives him this smile.

“Rumple, I think I’m getting a bit too much sun. Shall we go back up?”

And he takes great pleasure in making sure the sun doesn’t come close to touching his wife’s skin for the rest of the weekend as they hole up in their fancy hotel room.

Eventually, he comes to realize what this smile means all on its own, without her hints. It becomes one of his very favorite smiles. Of course.

This is NOT a Photoshop filter, every stroke is painted by me.

So, uh, I’m going to be the copy editor on an awesome feminist literary magazine, and I get to have my own column in it too, and I’m having such a Classic Alice moment. …I’m a writer. I really am.

And an editor, and this is going to be so cool, and I’m a little terrified, in the best way. Oh my God. This is a thing that’s actually happening. Yes!!!!

I sometimes wonder if I should make myself a personal blog.

Its not often, but sometimes I post something really personal that I don’t really want people to spread and it does and it makes me uncomfortable.
