Hello all my #dirkgently friends! We have been blown away by all the #fanart of Bentley as Rapunzel on the Show, we thought it would be great to post EVERYTHING related to Bentley on Facebook, so we have almost 200 pieces on display on Bentleys page… as well, we have made a hall of Honour for all the artwork that has been produced… here are pics of about 60% of what we have framed and put up… stay tuned for more as we keep adding this week
Thank you to all you amazing Artists for taking the time and effort to immortalize Bentley in this fashion! We are inspired and moved by this honour!
Her hands were always covered; from her wrists and across the back of her palms were bands of a dark fabric, cut neatly and fastened expertly into position through a woven grasp. And he had never questioned it, assuming it to be a practical comfort against the harsh days of war and wilderness. But the truth, as he had discovered years later, was far more culturally significant. The old world had branded her with a year of birth, and this number was imprinted on the back of her hand in a pale scar. In a society where immortal lives were strictly controlled, as not to overpopulate or dominate the cosmos, the mortal population were adamant that all should be accountable for their age. It meant that an eternal life could never falsify their records to live amidst mortal society, or to procreate, or show signs of everlasting power. Over time, this intimate number was seen as a deeply personal trait. And in the only freedom they had left, they had covered up their ancient years – unwilling to divulge their age with every movement of their hands. It was only in her dark bands that there was further significance, they used the shades of their birth century to show a small amount of status within their sanctuaries. And her dark, ever winding bands were half a millennia old.
