honestly I've never given much thought to the fandom's interpretations of sadie's appearance but it's definitely Weird that most ppl (including me, I'm calling myself out) immediately picture very light skin and straight hair etc. like obviously there are white-passing biracial people but the fact that seems to be the default image for sadie's appearance says loads

it’s particularly peculiar bc, like, okay yah straight hair probably comes from the official art

which isn’t necessarily the best benchmark anyway because rick’s characters are frequently whitewashed…i mean, for comparison, just look how appallingly light carter’s official art is:

but even in the official art, she’s definitely not pale. you probably wouldn’t think she’s black from looking at her, sure, and that’s true to canon, but she’s certainly not pasty white, and her hair is definitely not that super fine platinum blond. anyway, we can assume that if carter is much darker, then so is sadie.

also, this is the book cover rick praised for finally not whitewashing the kanes…sadie is still quite light, but notice that her hair is curly:

anyway, “white passing” is very subjective, and changes tremendously based on lighting, season, who you’re with, and where you are.

did you pick up the new mass effect?!

I HAVE NOT DONE THAT BECAUSE MY CAR IS FAR AWAY AND I HAVE HAD THE FLU AND I DIDNT WANT TO WALK 3 MILES AND I SPENT TOO MUCH MONEY OVER SPRING BREAK SO NO AND I REALLY WANT TO PLAY WITH MY BEAUTIFUL SPACE NERDS AND THEIR WACKY ANIMATIONS

Believe it or not, rum and Dublin Dr Pepper make for a pretty great combination! With just a little bit of lemon juice to balance out the sweetness, the rum really brings out the almond flavor in the Dublin Dr Pepper. Or does the Dublin Dr Pepper bring out the almond in the rum? Either way, Treaty Oak makes a mighty fine platinum rum! @tx-tornado @paintedcowboy @texan-outlaw @momentspause

Yes, I know I have a lot of pens. My EDC in my purse. Which is not a large purse; everything is just neatly and efficiently crammed in it.
