thanks to the person who wanted me to write a “dear ex-boyfriend” for the ask meme I reblogged earlier, completely assuming that 1. I’m straight and 2. I’ve been in a relationship before. neither of which are true, :-)
Surprise! :D Here’a late Christmas/early New Year treat from us to you: An illustrated comic fic (in the form of a mini-zine)!
It was initially a collaboration between @sarahcada and I on Christmas night that escalate from a series of simple sketches and 200-word drabble to an almost fully-colored comic and almost 1K-long fic (in one night too). @kwamikwami and @portentous-offerings also contributed with their input later on ;)
The person you can call at 2 a.m. and, no matter what, you can count on them. Even if they’re asleep or it’s cold or you need to be bailed out of jail…they’ll come for you. It’s, like, the highest level of friendship.
I"m tired of feeling like I’m too much. Like I care too much. Like I drink too much. Like I love too much. Like I’m sad too much. Like I break too much. Like I push people away too much. Like I question everything too much. Like I fuck up too much. Like I fall in love too much. Like I blame myself too much. Like I eat too much. Like I feel alone too much. I just want someone to tell me, “You’re not too much for me to handle. You’re not too little. You’re perfect for me.” I wanna stop overflowing, I wanna just be. I want to feel wanted. I want to stop choosing people that try to fill their holes with pieces of me, because I’ll never fit right. I want someone who just wants me to be me.
In your entire life, you can probably count your true friends on one hand. Maybe even on one finger. Those are the friends you need to cherish, and I wouldn’t trade one of them for a hundred of the other kind. I’d rather be completely alone than with a bunch of people who aren’t real. People who are just passing time.
I first did one of these for the Harry Potter characters, and almost immediately after that post’s inception, I thought of this. So now, without further or any ado, here is a comprehensive look at how necessary the deaths in Poe Party were.
Let’s get right to it!
Eddie Dantes: Firstly, he is too pretty to stay I mean look at this man. Nextly, gotta have some kind of plot what with the neck touch murder plan in motion. Thirdly, to hell with this guy in general for being terrible. And furtherly also stop Oscar Wilde from repeating history. 10/10 necessary.
Louisa May Alcott: stop the coughing. stop it at all costs (at all coughs? i’m sorry) and also we can’t have her going to the police because that is just it makes too much sense. 6/10 necessary.
Mary Shelley: Can’t have too many fabulous queens in the vicinity. Somebody had to go and it couldn’t be Lenore. Gotta say though, her death came as a bit of a shock if you catch me, drift-wise. 5/10 necessary.
Fyodor Dostoevsky: This poor cinnamon roll has had a horrible life let him live also that accent is so on point and I have never gotten over Clayton Synder being in this can’t i have nice things please ugh His death was only good for showing how freakin terrible Charlotte Bronte is and sowing doubt about her innocence. Petty. 4/10 necessary.
George Eliot: Literally wasn’t even supposed to happen. Just a glitch in the weird neck touchy murder plan. Think of the puns about sports and masculinity we’ve missed out on. I named my car Karen in her honor. 2/10 necessary.
Krishanti: Had to die, cause she knew about the murderer. Not sure why she didn’t just tell everybody who the murderer was, but we never said she was bright. Just that she could speak to dead people. Weird but cool flower power lady. 8/10 necessary.
Emily Dickinson: Who is this? Was this the cat? 0/10 necessary if it did indeed happen.
H.G. Wells: HOW DARE YOU.LITERALLY WHY. i mean i get why cause of the camera but also I AM SO UPSET WITH THIS IN GENERAL i mean i’m happy he and lenore are time traveling ghosts together that’s cute but I WAS SAD FOR DAYS THIS CINNAMON ROLL SUNSHINE INCARNATE IS HUMAN JOY HOW DARE YOU. -100/10 necessary.
no joke i have no fewer than 20 gifs of HG Wells on my laptop
Constables: aw COME ON seriously?? Right after HG??? Low blow. Cheap trick. Also I need more Jim O’Heir in my life immediately. 0/10 necessary
Annabel Lee: Literal Spanish sunset incarnate beautiful and innocent angel let me just ask you this, why can’t Edgar Allen Poe have one nice thing????? ONE NICE THING I ASK YOU. Okay sure like Annabel kinda knew about Eddie but how could she have known?? She was betrayed! Reminds me of Snape, which makes me sad as heckle. 0/10 necessary.
Lenore the Lady Ghost: Only the good die young. 10/10 necessary to meet HG and fall in ghosty time traveling pure sunshine love
