virtual seduction

lady-gorthaur  asked:

The improvement in your art and related ever-increasing beauty of your Mairon over the course of your comic begins to cause me physical pain, but I gotta ask on behalf of all your followers, are we ever going to see our favourite smith with his hair unbraided? I can only imagine the glory.

Hair is a legitimate plot device and don’t think I won’t prove it

“Is there still an aesthetic illusion? And if not, a path to an ‘aesthetic’ illusion, the radical illusion of secret, seduction and magic? Is there still, on the edges of hypervisibility, of virtuality, room for an image?”
–Jean Baudrillard, The Conspiracy of Art, 2005
