“John Lennon & Yoko Ono come out of 5 year’s seclusion to promote their new album ‘Double Fantasy’. They walked around Central Park, posed in front of the Dakota apartment house, and worked in Studio One, Yoko’s office.”
John and Yoko photographed on 21st November, 1980.
Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people. Lori
The Sakaki children made their way down the stairs. Slowly, as if they were weighted down by heavy chains. Once downstairs Sakaki Yuya and Sakaki Yuto took a seat on the couch with their father. Edo saw Yuya’s hand reach out for Yuto’s and Yuto take it and give it a reassuring squeeze. Sakaki Yugo chose to sit on a beat-up sofa chair instead. He may have sat down but his legs were restless, bouncing up and down with nervous energy. He looked ready to bolt at any second. Sakaki Yuri, meanwhile, sat in a stiff-looking armchair off in the corner, legs and arms crossed, body leaning back. It was meant to make him seem relaxed and unconcerned but it simply came off as forced. It was obvious the Sakaki children were uncomfortable in his presence. If their hearts were still beating Edo suspected they would be going a mile a minute.
Well, Edo supposed it was a natural reaction to a seeing a Volturi guard at your doorstep. Certainly a more appropriate one than to offer them milk and cookies, which they’d eventually have to purge from their systems anyway.
I’m glad Arc-V has so many interesting female characters. I wish we could see more of them, but I’m happy they are there. We have mom’s actually exist and do stuff, the female duelists all actually duel and are known to duel, and we have several female characters who are integral to the plot. So many good things!
