A poor copy [of Robert],” Renly said with a shrug.
“Though much better dressed,” Littlefinger quipped. “Lord Renly spends more on clothing than half the ladies of the court.”
It was true enough. Lord Renly was in dark green velvet, with a dozen golden stags embroidered on his doublet. A cloth-of-gold half cape was draped casually across one shoulder, fastened with an emerald brooch. “There are worse crimes,” Renly said with a laugh. “The way you dress, for one.
Sometimes when I’m bored I make Gems in The Sims 4 (I have some weird CC for the purpose). Here’s Holly Blue Agate - I think I actually got pretty close, allowing for the fact that the nearest match for her funky mini-cape I had was a sailor collar accessory.
I never noticed this before! In “QPid,” the silly Robin Hood adventure episode of TNG, the hair and make-up people didn’t just give Data a friar’s tonsure, they actually incorporated the access flaps in his head in the design. What attention to detail! How simultaneously charming and creepy!
proposed meme: artfully filtered screencaps of Navy Ruby with portentous Shakespeare quotes like “One may smile, and smile, and be a villain (Hamlet, Act 1 Scene 5)” and “Look like th’ innocent flower, But be the serpent under ’t (Macbeth, Act 1 Scene 5).”
I mean, look at this chap on the right. He’d need to touch that up every couple of days and he couldn’t do the sides and back himself so either there’s a clone barber he visits a lot or he has friends who help him with it. There must be so much social grooming amongst clones.

Minor headcanon: Holly has a NO RUNNING rule on the Zoo station not only because it’s rowdy and undignified and disorderly and leads to accidents at blind corners, but because she herself absolutely hates to run. Holly trying to run is the jiggliest goddamn thing you ever saw. Everything shakes. It is exhausting just to look at. Even with a Jasper-strength sports bra, she feels ridiculous.
On the other hand she has no difficulty running in heels; Holly can do absolutely anything in heels, it’s uncanny.
