An anonymous fear submitted to Deep Dark Fears - thanks! I’m just finishing up my new Deep Dark Fears book - and I’ll be posting the cover tomorrow night!

 “Aamito Lagum, Achok Majak, Ajak Deng, Ajuma Nasenyana, Alek Wek, Angok Mayen, Grace Bol, Mari Agory and Nykhor Paul. You never see them at Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Saint Laurent, Valentino, Versace, etc.. Like Nykhor Paul said “…people need to expand their idea of what black models can do. Black beauty can be Chanel, black beauty can be Dior.” This needs to change. Black models with darker skin should/also deserve to be casted by bigger names/brands.”   - @amen69fashion

“None of them have any Vogue covers and are rarely used on any of the big campaigns. They don’t even book them for covers for smaller fashion mags or use them in editorials they way they use their lighter counterparts” - @fuckrashida

iceland and hong kong both occupy the same role in their respective circles (aka being smothered and loved by norway and china). “take away my sun, and i’ll take away your universe” is definitely a quote spoken about each by their guardian

norway did a good job of buffering iceland from the grime and soot of his world but at the cost of a terminal ambivalence – “my own view of myself was that i was small and innocuous, a marshmallow compared to the others. i was a poor shot with a 22, for instance, and not very good with an ax. it took me a long time to figure out that the youngest in a family of dragons is still a dragon from the point of view of those who find dragons alarming”

meanwhile, hong kong was raised to be chinas heir – alas! hong kong! a borrowed place on borrowed time; some attempt at “a triumphant second chance, but the story it tells is of a botched reenactment, rooted in a doomed yet irresistible urge to rewrite the past”

they also had to share a cell together for 5 hours after a clusterfuck of an arrest ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
