Nadine McGowan has been snatched out of her life twice. The first time: dancing at a Bowie concert miles from the farming town where she grew up, caught by a modeling scout and spirited away to the runway, the casting couch, heroin, and New York City. The second time: she was turned into a monster, and then acted like one.
Years later, she has blood on her hands and her lips, and no matter how hard she tries, she can’t make herself forget it’s there. All she wants is to cling to the wall of her pit and finally climb, instead of falling endlessly. But goodness is a very distant light, and Nadine can’t entirely convince herself that it hasn’t already winked out.
Hey since Hiveswap is bringing in a lot of new Homestucks, let me welcome you! I know our fandom gets a bad rep but honestly most of it is good, just a few bad eggs spoil the bunch, ya know? But if any of you have any questions or comments or want to share the amazing journey of Homestuck, you’re welcome to talk to me about it or ask me questions! (A lot of parts were confusing at first.) The first Act will be boring, but if you can get through that you’ll be good. God help you all who are gonna read it, it’s a long ride.
I think that one of my favorite things as a kid was right after a powwow my ma and I decided to go with her then fiance to an ice cream shop with some of our regalia and leathers still on. Out of nowhere a little girl comes out, points and yells:
“LOOK MOMMY! INDIANS!”
My ma without missing a beat turned around, pointed at her and screamed, “LOOK JEFF! A WHITE GIRL!”
had Aunt Lysa send a letter to our parents telling them it was the
Lannisters who murdered Jon Arryn when, really, it was you. The
conflict between the Starks and the Lannisters, it was you who
started it. Do you deny it?”
