I love how she almost drops it until she smells it and that flashbulb memory hits.
“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real … Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
Notice she says “who” it was and not “what” it was.

I’ve heard a great deal about you, Fa Mulan. You stole your father’s armor, ran away from home, impersonated a soldier, deceived your commanding officer, dishonored the Chinese Army, destroyed my palace, and… you have saved us all.
Hello guys! I’m here to make you a little proposal :>
Actually, I’m still not sure if I’m going ahead with this idea because I haven’t proposed it to my teacher yet, but I’m going to do that tomorrow~
SO, I might need a little intervention from you guys in a project for my Design class. I have an idea that involves taking photographs from several spots in the city which have a lot of advertising and then edit those pictures.
But then I got thinking, what if I had photographs from other cities? Other cities in other countries even? That’s where I would require your help. If you’d be willing to, I’d like you to take one or two photographs from a spot in your city that you feel to be clattered with any and all kinds of advertising (signs, posters, billboards, bus ads and the like). I don’t want to seem picky, but if it’s a relatively large city it would also be great! :D
I’d need your authorization to use and edit the photograph in my project, as well as the location (something like “city name, country name”) and your name/nickname so I can credit you. This is all in an academic environment, and I won’t be making profit out of your photographs.
Again, I’m still not sure if I’m going to go ahead with this, but I’d like to have an idea of who would be willing to help me out with this :D
EDIT: I’ll be using this email to manage any incoming photographs: firstname.lastname@example.org
I should also mention that one of the guidelines for the project is to save as many resources as possible. So don’t go too much out of your way specifically for a photograph or two; make it sort of a thing you’d take on your way to do something else (eg. on your way to/from work or school, something like that. Unless you’re a tourist yourself in that city haha)
I’ve spoken with my teacher and he has approved of my idea! He said it would be interesting to have a sort of crowd-sourced intervention. ^^ However, he’s given me some guidelines that I should give you guys upon taking these pictures.
- I need to tell you exactly what I’m going to do with your pictures. What I’m planning on doing is edit ALL of the advertising/lettering out of the pictures. I want to try and see exactly how much of a visual impact does advertising have in the urban landscape
- He recommended pictures of the highest quality possible. Not only in terms of file quality (the bigger the better, this is meant to go on a mini-magazine which is going to be printed out); but also be mindful of blurry pictures and things like that.
- He said to fully credit every picture: each picture will have to be accompanied by your name, full location of the picture (city name + country name) and date on which it was taken
- I want to start working on this as soon as possible, and as for a preliminary deadline let’s say Saturday, October 4th. If you think you have any pictures right now that fit these guidelines, send them right away to email@example.com. I’ll be waiting for them! (∴´ ⌣ `∴ ʃƪ)
For reference, I’m planning on editing the photographs in the style of these montages by Robin Collyer:
As you can see, all sorts of typography/advertising were erased from these pictures, and that’s what I was looking forward to do with the photographs you send me. So I’m adding these now so you can have an idea of what I’d like your pictures to look like. ^^ (I’m only adding this bit of info now because only now is when my teacher remembered the name of this photographer)
Once again I fully appreciate your help/support/signal boosting!

I knew [In The Flesh] was a beautiful, beautiful, original script. Beautifully written and it was very original and different from anything else., I knew that. But I didn’t quite expect the following it would gain around the world and stuff. That’s totally mad and really exciting.

This sums up my life pretty well
Well, I recommend it being the best possible you have. Like, I don’t mind you sending me iPhone pictures and the like, but my teacher said that if you have a nice enough camera, it would be best to use it. But if you think your pictures have good quality, even if they were taken with a phone/smartphone, please send them in! :D
