Okay, baby, if it makes you feel better,
you can imagine
your worst case scenario.
You can imagine a monster
but that doesn’t make it
Yena Sharma Purmasir from ‘Dream Deferred’ from her book When I am Not There
(This book honestly is very quickly becoming everything I ever wanted in my father. He isn’t dead. He is very much alive and in good health and comes home every night but he doesn’t rly feel like my father. I am SO thankful Yena wrote this book. I didn’t know I needed it until I had it.)
Dangan Ronpa Fan Month Week 2: Slice of life/High School
Super-duper late doodle for the past Dangan Ronpa Fan Month prompt - my chose was Slice of Life! I imagined a sort of day off from the Foundation for Touko, that she chose to spend with Komaru, as every good BROTP (or sismance? Female brotp?!) would do. <3 Sorry Byakuya-sama, next day off will be for you. The quote Touko is reading is from IT by Stephen King, one of my fav books ever… i have this headcanon that she *loves* King’s books (and Gaiman’s too), and IT would be the perfect book for her since it’s about friendship. And maybe she would like Carrie too (bullied girl, ya know). Also, i suck at calligraphy orz.
Words, I think, are such unpredictable creatures.
No gun, no sword, no army or king will ever be powerful than a sentence. Swords may cut and kill, but words will stab and stay, burying themselves in our bones to become corpses we carry into the future, all the time digging and failing to rip their skeletons from our flesh.
