the able baker

Pete has been through some shit in the RP I’m involved in (with honestly the best fucking Lucas I could ask for. Terrifying af. Actually at one point had a nightmare about the scenario, it’s fucking awesome) and UGH I just love making stuff like this to help illustrate it. Makes me remember which eye it is Pete had wiring shoved into and which hand he lost a finger on (thankfully just the one… So far). 

And it’s fun to have a Ship I never would have once even considered xD

Imagine Drew meeting and falling love with another woman, and getting married.  Imagine them having kids.  Imagine all their kids being geniuses, maybe not all top IQ like their half brother Ralph, but all in the top few percent of the population.

Imagine Walter O’Brien trying to process Drew Baker consistently fathering super geniuses.

Imagine Toby Curtis trying to process it.

“Touch Of Grey”

Must be getting early, clocks are running late.
Paint by number morning sky, looks so phony.
Dawn is breaking everywhere, light a candle, curse the glare
Draw the curtains I don’t care ‘cause it’s alright
I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.

I see you’ve got your fists out, say your piece and get out.
Guess I get the gist of it but it’s alright
Sorry that you feel that way.
The only thing there is to say
Every silver lining’s got a touch of grey
I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.

It’s a lesson to me
The Ables and the Bakers and the C’s
The ABC’s we all must face
To try to keep a little grace

It’s a lesson to me
The Deltas and the East and the Freeze
The ABC’s we all think of
To try to give a little love

I know the rent is in arrears, the dog has not been fed in years
It’s even worse than it appears but it’s alright

Cow is given kerosene, kid can’t read at seventeen
The words he knows are all obscene but it’s alright
I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.

It’s a lesson to me
The Deltas and the East and the Freeze
The ABC’s we all think of
To try to keep a little love

The shoe is on the hand it fits, there’s all there really nothing much to it
Whistle through your teeth and spit 'cause it’s alright

Oh, well, a touch of gray, kinda suits you anyway,
That’s was all I had to say but it’s alright
I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.

It’s a lesson to me,
The deltas and the East and the free
The ABC’s we all must face,
Try to save a little grace.

We will get by. We will get by. We will get by. We will survive
We will get by. We will get by. We will get by. We will survive


Kind of a strangely positive day.  Shared for lilrowboat, for me, and anyone else who may be smiling through a slight case of a Touch of Grey.  :)
