London in 1927.
Early colour film, and I watch this as if I’ve been given a window back into time. The women wear hats. Everyone wears hats. The police. The busses. The skyline…
The little girl feeding the sparrows is in her 90s now, if she is still alive. The little girl beside the statue of Peter Pan is in her late 80s (I hope).
Oh, London, I miss you. See you in a couple days. Neil is awesome for finding this and sharing this. Time machines exist: we call them movies.
I wanted to draw an elf with amazing curly hair, so I did that.
All I am trying to say is that Far Beyond The Stars is pretty much the best episode of Star Trek ever.
I will back this up 100%. Just thinking about that episode puts a lump in my throat.

A w.i.p. by Brian Stelfreeze, Clint Eastwood
I asked my husband to rub my feeties (mutual feetie rubs actually) and tell me a story so I could blissfully fall asleep. He proceeded to tell me what happens to everyone and everything after the events of Werewolf: The Apocalypse, the rest, etc. for White Wolf’s Old World of Darkness universe. I have never been so depressed, my feet have never felt so good.
That’s me, depressing, yet unusually gifted with my hands. Yeah, that’s me all over.
We [Fraction and his wife, Kelly Sue DeConnick] were pregnant at the time, and while I was out there I started to realize that if I had a daughter, there would come a day when I would have to apologize to her for my profession. I would have to apologize for the way it treats and speaks to women readers, and the way it treats its female characters.
I knew that if we had a daughter, because I know my wife and I know the kind of girl she wants to raise and I know the kind of girl I want to raise, she was going to look at what I did for a living and want to know how the fuck I could stomach it. How could I sell her out like that?” Fraction continued. “That conversation is still coming, and I’m bracing for it in the way that some dads brace for their daughter’s first date or boyfriend. I became acutely aware that I had sort of done that thing that lots of privileged hetero cisgendered white dudes do. ‘I’m cool with women, and that’s enough.’ It’s not enough. It’s embarrassing to say, because we somehow have attached shame to learning and evolving our opinions, culturally, but I became aware that there was a deficiency of and to women in my work, and all I could do at that moment was take care of my side of the street.
