‘Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people.’ - madlori
Inspired by (x) (x) and (x). Original idea and first eight GIFs made by Tanzila. Last eight GIFs made by yours truly. These awesome people helped to decide which characters would go where: Erin, Rachel, Bethany, Rowen.
Instead of working on a piece for an actual real life art show, I went ahead and inked (with a Windsor Newton paint brush and Dr. Ph. Martin India Ink) and colored (in Photoshop) this thing. Erica, I’m not trying to kill you; I swear.
I decided to go ahead and see what Darcy looked liked in glasses (referenced from Ames by Warby Parker).
I can’t decide which is better. What do y'all think?
“You are too generous to trifle with me. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes are unchanged; but one word from you will silence me on this subject for ever.”
