A comic I made to remind myself why I do what I do, hopefully it will help you too!
See if you can spot the fictional characters used and name them ;3
Did you REALLY faced something like this or straightly this in your life? I've never faced or even heard about such situation....
or even about my take on Pokemon when I tell to someone in reality(in Poland Pokemon fans are the hell rare and almost everyone knows only a childish stereotype
of them)- then I see on people faces that they MIGHT feel in such way, but they never said it for real.
Anyway, like many people said it well and better than I would be able to, you made great work here and I agree with you!
Actually...THIS right here is the whole reason I started writing in the first place. I remember getting lost in the story, feeling a "rush" for characters and events, and I really wanted to recreate that for others. So thanks, Mae, for reminding me of my purpose! :3
Stories are important because they help us make sense of life, which can be filled with confusion. I just finished The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, a powerful recount of a cancer patient whose cells formed the backbone of medical research worldwide over the past century, yet whose family or descendants never went to college (a trend which is happily changing). A multi-layered investigation from the ivory towers of John Hopkins to the gritty street life of the Lackses, on how respect in research - or the lack of it - can impact families and societies, I got the sense of the deep despair the family faced, yet their solemn optimism for the vast scientific contributions of their ancestor's cells, and am very glad for the years put into weaving the story together from all the scattered emotions, memories and records.
If I head down the path of research, I'll hang this story ahead of me as guidance: rigginsroom.weebly.com/uploads…
Then I read a book. A very special book.
It was the story of a girl who never felt she belonged. So much so, she even considered death. But someone told her to hang on. So she lived. She became a librarian. Then she became a sister. Then an aunt. A Remembrancer. An Abhorsen. And finally, a hero. And all because she did not give up. Because she found people who believed in her. Because she found a family.
That girl's name is Lirael. She inspired me to become a hero myself. And I would have been lost without her.
I spy McSparklepants in there XDDD
As well as the Joker, Elsa from Frozen (I STILL have to see that! We have the DVD and everything...), AND the infamous flying car from Harry Potter.
And do I spy Elsa and Jean Valjean? >w>
Storytelling is one of the best things there are.~ ^^
There needs to be some sort of quality assurance in anything targeted towards kids...
