Once Upon a Time is an American fairy tale drama series that takes place
in the fictional seaside town of Storybrooke, Maine, in which its
residents are actually characters from various fairy tales that were
transported to the “real world" town and robbed of their real memories
by a powerful curse. Episodes typically feature a primary storyline in
Storybrooke, as well as a secondary storyline usually from another point
in a character’s life before the curse was enacted
from sketch to finish! these sketches are incredibly fun to transform. sculpting sketches like this is something that my brain can translate so fluidly into motion, and makes comic pieces that much more enjoyable to do–and it doesn’t take long, either! next to having these in the new book, i’ll probably put them up as standalone prints in my s6 soon ♥♥♥
“Just the simple flutter of a butterfly can change the world”. In short, this is the principle of the Butterfly Effect, the principal element of the chaos theory. A small change, a little effect can cause bigger consequences. A big and important repercussion. Can, simply, change the world.
And that’s all about, after all, change the world. Remake the way that the ghouls are view for the human beings. Be able to change the paradigm that they don’t feel, they can’t love.
They cannot live, because they are wrong creatures.
The balance of the world is based in that. That the people continue believing that the ghouls are monsters, and the CCG keep doing their work, erasing them. That’s the status quo. And that is the same balance that Eto is trying to break. That’s same balance that is locking them, like a cage.
That is the cage that doesn’t let them live peacefully. That forced them to live hidden, alone and with a latent fear of being murdered in pro of “a better world”. Be a martyr of the cleaning of “this wrong world” because they are the ones that are corrupting it in the first place.
That’s what Eto is trying to end. With her revelation, with she being the public figure of the known and loved Takatsuki Sen. She, like the famous autor with thousands of fans and millions of selled books. She is who revels her true nature to the press, no just for the cameras but in front of the whole world that’s watching her, astonished. Humans, maybe fearful, other curious. Ghouls maybe also fearful but hopeful. Because Eto is now the visible face of a silent and invisible population, she’s the icon of a possible transformation. She, with her book, will the fruit of a possible and amazing revolution. The books are more than words printed in paper. Are ideas, values, thoughts that move masses and they’re the fulcrum which, like Archimedes say, moves the world. There are books that, really, have changed the way that society moves, from the Bible, the Koran or the Torah to books like “ On the Origin of Species “ by Darwin or “The Communist Manifesto“ by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.
This are the books that leave a mark in a person, this are the ones that changes you, the ones that make you reconsider everything you knew and you took like the truth. This is what Eto is doing with her writting. She, with her dark words and corrupted characters, reveals a grim realities and the true nature of the human being. This is why, a book from her, a text written with the point of view from the ghouls, is so important. Because i doubt that this was made before, because i really doubt that, beside from the books like Ogura’s, there’re others written about them. But about them, not “what they are”, but rather about them. What they feel, what they live. The things that many time had been denied, so many times questioned and labeled like something imposibble, there, printed in paper and written by the best contemporary autor in Tokyo.
We know that Eto was working in her books since years.
And, it’s very likely, that her idea of revolution had started since the moment that she read Ukina’s notes, and her desire of a different world was born inside of her. A world where her “fellow comrades ghouls” didn’t have to live terrified. And this is the perfect way to start a revolt.
“Just the simple flutter of a butterfly can change the world” The simple fact that she confesses in front of a million of people, in front on her fans, in front of people that loves her is the tiny flutter which will start to form big storms and maybe an hurricane. And the CCG, little or nothing can do. Because it’s public, because Takatsuki Sen is a public figure and they cannot make her disappear (Well, they can but i don’t think that move will end well) Because she just confess, and more than one will want an interview, more than one will want to read her book. Even if the CCG wants to forbid that, they won’t be able to do it, because the power of the masses is too big. The containment that they will do or attempt to give to a theme like this, will put in testing all we know about the power of the CCG. And not only them, but V too. Because the balance between ghouls and humans maybe will break because of what Eto did. With a confession like this, more than one will change their vision about ghouls. More than one, at the moment to read Eto’s words, will see from a different perspective, from a point of view that they never were able to think it was possible. After all, this is the gift that biggest authors have.
And without doubt, Eto is one of them.
The wings of the butterfly has begun to shake, and the winds are changing. Whatever happens from now on, will change the world. And nothing will ever be the same.
