@flowurdust LOOK ITS LIKE THE ONES AT SOCK QUEEN AHHH
kill the idea that openly caring characters are boring
set on fire the line of thought that dictates that altruism is a bad thing and that selfishness/sassiness is an inherently more appealing and ‘~intricate~’ quality than an affectionate nature
smash and bury the concept of the false equivalency between angst and complexity
kindness and empathy are not synonyms for “blandness” and “lack of personality”
Some of the books that had belonged to Louis XVI in his library at Versailles.
