L'heure bleue by Eric Penet
Via Flickr:

‘’One night, when they were fifteen, they were both in New York City, and they went out for a  dinner. Plimpton ordered soft-shell crabs. A horrified River abruptly left the restaurant. When Plimpton followed him, she found him walking down Park Avenue, crying.

‘’I love you so much – why?’’ he wept. He was devastated that she was eating animals, but even more, he was deeply wounded that he hadn’t been able to convince her that veganism was the better, more moral path.

‘’I love him for that’’, Plimpton said. ‘’For his dramatic desire that we share every belief, that I be with him all the way.’’

Choices Stories Poorly Summarized

The Freshman: Yay college! Yay college stereotypes like the gaming nerd, mean sorority girl, hot jock, and Mom Friend™. Also you write a novel for your grumpy professor.

The Sophomore: It’s the Freshman but you’re a year older and more boring. Did we really need another book idk man it just seems like a lot but whatever.

The Crown and the Flame: damn, there’s dragons, there’s war, there’s magic, you have a dizzying amount of love interests and let’s be real Kenna is the baddest bitch alive.


Most Wanted: Wow such a book. You’re going to ship Sam and Dave but spoiler alert they don’t kiss the don’t get together and there is no happy ending also not to be shady but wtf pixelberry where is Book two- we’ve gotten rules of engagement book fifty but no most wanted wtffff

Endless Summer: your whole world is falling apart literally. All your friends are dying and you can’t make everyone like you and there’s wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff

The Royal Romance: how you would you like to marry a rich prince from a nonexistent European country? It sounds great, but woah, his friends are cute, like really cute, suddenly you’re part of a love triangle, murder king is real, you wear the same clothes all the time because you’re poor

rules of engagement: so you’ve got commitment issues, okay. To get over yourself, how about you make the commitment of a GODDAMN MARRIAGE to a man you met three months ago so you can be a millionaire! What a fantastic idea!

Hero: a rock falls on you, you have superpowers, your two best friends are in love and you meet other hot superheroes while you’re saving the city. Also you’re an alien because why not.

It Lives in the Woods: there is some creepy shit going down, this is some Stranger Things shit right here, also you adopt like six animals because your parents are away and what they don’t know won’t hurt them, right? Also your friends are all going to die.

LoveHacks: you work at Buzzfeed and all you and your millennial friends seem to do is hang out in bars. There’s a lot of people hitting on you and you’re just busy setting up your friends with people because you’re a “romance expert” (I love this book so much it’s so funny pls come back)

High school story: the classic game you know and love but everyone is upgraded and the drama is times ten. Completely unrealistic portrayal of high school includes a dictator principal, all of your friends being into you, and a suspiciously light amount of school work.

The Haunting of braidwood manor: Ghosts! Ghost girls! Wow what a pretty ghost girl! Mc likes the ghost girl! Mc is gay for ghost girl! Gay power resurrects ghost girl! Mc rejects victor, the best “friend” who wants to be more than friend because she is queer and she ain’t here for that! (Good for Mc, go marry your ghost girlfriend)

Wow this is a lot longer than I had intended but here it is

WE DID IT! You fought with me like a true Warriors and I WIN! I worked so hard for this to happened, there were days I went to sleep at 6-5-2-3am and days without night of sleep because I was preparing this huge “VOTING” campaign. One thing I didn’t expect was the size of your support. LIKE 🙌LITERALLY you were giving me so much energy that I was able to fight for this like a lion! This is your VICTORY same as mine. Thank you! Also I will be replying to all of your messages during today:) Everyone who got involved will get their rewards, I’ll make sure of this!
⚔️What did I win? Enough money to equip my studio with technology that will boost my painting process. And! I will be able to visit Armenia and Georgia and document ancient areas which my Kingdom of Yberia was originally inspired by. To document it’s architecture, culture, armory, nature and therefore give my book more authenticity.
