have you ever had a dream of someone you haven’t seen or talked to in years and wonder if anyone ever randomly dreams about you too.
…. I created a demon representing seasickness, hence her name, Nauseo, which i believe is “sea sick” in latin. Her hair is made of souls that she collects by using the amulet on her chest, making the souls take shape of fishes. When she died and became attached to a Host, she lost all of her hair, becoming bald, embarassed and enraged….
Congrats to im-bravo our winner!!!
I thought this siren-esque creation was stunning. The design is really well thought out, really menacing and alien-like. The host and their portal are adorable and really fit the Ava’s Demon world. I also thought the shark shirt and fish bones were a charming touch and the overall artistic execution was utterly spectacular!! Congrats!!!
Both of these were absolutely gorgeous works of art and writing and I felt I should mention them specially for their creativity. It was a really tough decision and in the end I had to choose one among the three!
Thanks again to everyone who participated!! Choosing was really really tough, I had to narrow it down to one out of over 150 applicants. You all made some stunning pieces and not one went under appreciated!! This is a hugely talented, creative fandom and I hope you’re all looking forward to the next contest!!
we’re going in.
And sometimes you just need to have it all.
My mother once told me that trauma is like Lord of the Rings. You go through this crazy, life-altering thing that almost kills you (like say having to drop the one ring into Mount Doom), and that thing by definition cannot possibly be understood by someone who hasn’t gone through it. They can sympathize sure, but they’ll never really know, and more than likely they’ll expect you to move on from the thing fairly quickly. And they can’t be blamed, people are just like that, but that’s not how it works.
Some lucky people are like Sam. They can go straight home, get married, have a whole bunch of curly headed Hobbit babies and pick up their gardening right where they left off, content to forget the whole thing and live out their days in peace. Lots of people however, are like Frodo, and they don’t come home the same person they were when they left, and everything is more horrible and more hard then it ever was before. The old wounds sting and the ghost of the weight of the one ring still weighs heavy on their minds, and they don’t fit in at home anymore, so they get on boats go sailing away to the Undying West to look for the sort of peace that can only come from within. Frodos can’t cope, and most of us are Frodos when we start out.
But if we move past the urge to hide or lash out, my mother always told me, we can become Pippin and Merry. They never ignored what had happened to them, but they were malleable and receptive to change. They became civic leaders and great storytellers; they we able to turn all that fear and anger and grief into narratives that others could delight in and learn from, and they used the skills they had learned in battle to protect their homeland. They were fortified by what had happened to them, they wore it like armor and used it to their advantage.
It is our trauma that turns us into guardians, my mother told me, it is suffering that strengthens our skin and softens our hearts, and if we learn to live with the ghosts of what had been done to us, we just may be able to save others from the same fate."
Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
