In the last weeks of her life, she never looked more exquisitely, ethereally beautiful- almost other-worldly, as if the transition from life had subtly begun. The contours of her face were delicately honed, her body slim and lean in a last-stand contradiction of nature. … Photographs of her in 1962 were shot in colour but she is shades of pale, her skin like ivory satin, as if her life blood were slowly drying up, leaving behind an eggshell façade doomed to crack -Jeannie Sakol
Cinna was his best chess opponent aboard the
Victory Tour train but the stylist was nowhere near good enough for Haymitch to
engage his whole attention in the game. It was a welcomed distraction though.
With each new District they hit, the atmosphere on the train only grew heavier.
They wouldn’t reach Three until the following
evening, which meant they would enjoy a whole day and two nights of rest.
Haymitch was relieved by the respite. The speeches had already been reviewed,
he and Effie had gone over the schedules so many times he probably could have
droned them out in his sleep and they
were as ready as they could be.
The kids now…
“Your turn.” Cinna said. Haymitch glanced at
the chessboard, saw that the stylist had moved his knight exactly as he had expected
him to, and simply advanced his piece without much thought. Cinna made a face.
it’s @ajax-daughter-of-telamon‘s wonderful bez!! she was a blast to draw, a nice change of pace from all the angular dude sameface most of my humanoid chars seem to have~ experimented and learnt quite a bit from this piece, so hopefully i won’t forget it all before my next doodle!!
(i’ve thrown a couple of progress pics beneath the cut b/c i liked the sketch for this piece~)
“how are all these rookie groups skipping their what-were-their-stylists-even-thinking phases” buddy u know what it is. it’s them nct boys, absorbing every possible embarrassing look with every comeback and unit debut they have like sponges of suffering. all the grease-dreads and tin foil monkey suits the other rookies should’ve had to experience? nct really took that bullet for your faves. nct, kings of taking one for the team,, kings of making everyone else look good
