So my professor today said the sentence “The red blood cell should have never died like that, it should have died in the arms of a white blood cell”. Which prompted me to write the intro to the epic romance novel about the love of the red blood cell Rudigore and white blood cell Wesley. And then my amazing awesome friend Meghan (boredom-fix on tumblr) illustrated it for me.
Without further adieu I give you the epic tale of Rudigore and Wesley.
As Rudigore, the red blood cell, laid there on the cold hard ground he thought to himself, “This isnt how I was supposed to go out”. As his world faded to black his life began to replay in a series of clips. The most predominant figure in all of these clips was Wesley, the white blood cell. Rudigore died with Wesleys name on his lips. “I should have died in your arms Wesley, I shouldnt have gone out like this” …what went wrong?
Hope you all enjoyed that.
Ruby Rhod is one of my favorite characters in sci-fi ever because he is Luc Besson’s vision of the hetero sex symbol of the future: a flamboyant, emotionally labile man who wears skin-tight leopard print or decks himself in roses, a man who accessorizes with big jewelry and dabbles in cosmetics. And the ladies love him. Everything about him screams “gay” according to our stereotypes, but he’s portrayed as a 100% straight sexual dynamo.
Besson is one of the few directors I’ve seen who actually recognizes that our ideas of sexuality and gender performance might have changed drastically in the future.
Or, you know, Prince.
Celestarium is a knitted shawl written by Audry Nicklin that is an accurate representation of the night sky from the North Pole. Knitted in the round, with eyelets and beads used to represent the stars.
While I don’t think I’ll add the beads, I am very tempted to make this.
