poor booking

I saw @propshophannah‘s post about Manon in a crown and attempted to sketch it because I was already looking for a reason to procrastinate

Lame adaptations and sequels are always like, “how can Mina go back to her stifling Victorian marriage after her experience with the dark, seductive Dracula??”

Meanwhile, Mina marries her best friend, who she’s known since they were children, who she share common interests with, they build a home together, work as partners, make immense sacrifices for each other, support each other through their traumas.

Guys, a marriage isn’t stifling and restrictive just because two people… get along, I guess?

  • rip pages out

  • DO LITERALLY EVERYTHING WITH YOUR BOOK BECAUSE IT IS YOURS AND YOURS ALONE

and everyone else should keep their mouth shut and stop with the “how could you do this to your book?”/”the poor book”/”oh my god your such a bad person for doing this” WHAT THE FUCK come on guys, do with your book what you think is right and let other people do with theirs what they think is right.

‘This is instructive. I’ve seen you put half a dozen men in the dirt without breaking a sweat.’

'Not right now, I couldn’t.’

'I can see that. You’re relieved of your regular duties in the morning.’

'That’s nice of you. I can’t get up. I’ll just lie here. Or did you need something?’

'Oh, how did you know?’ said Laurent. 'Take me to bed.’
