I want us to sin so I may survive this, so I may hold onto my bandage of self if I can if I need.

Eimear Mcbride got compared to Joyce and Woolf, and normally I don't like when authors get compared like that, but I think in this case there is some truth to it.
A Girl is A Half-formed Thing is told in this staccato, stream of consciousness style, but it's also poetic. A lot of people may find this challenging to understand, and it does take a little bit of brain work. It's like poetry in that way. She mostly doesn't say things flat-out, she gives you an impression of what is going on. I like this style. It's urgently told, and if it were written in a traditional way it wouldn't have the same impact.
The book is about a young girl whose brother is very ill with a brain tumor. All characters in this book are nameless, but you still get wrapped up, you feel for this girl. She starts using sex as a way to cope with things. Her mother is very religious and they butt heads. She's not exactly close with her brother as they age, but she loves him very much. She has a rough go at life, it's very sad to be honest, and major content warning for rape.
But if you think you can get through the violence she faces, and you're not afraid of a challenging read, I would say go for it.

Dividing from the sweet of mother flesh that could not take me in again. I curled there learning limb from limb. Curdled under hot lamps. Sorrow lapped. I’m so glad your brother’s lived. That he’ll see you.

Eimear McBride - A Girl Is A Half Formed Thing.   Arriving home after a long day to find a parcel on the door step that has travelled across the Tasman to provide much needed cheer. Feeling grateful for the books, tea, stationery and other goodies from lovely Bek! Very unexpected and very kind.

Thinking I think of you and me. Our empty spaces where fathers should be. Whenabouts we might find them and what we’d do to fill them up.

These little style homages have been going around so I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon, there’s so many great artists in this fandom it’s overwhelming! I singled some out and attempted to draw my Silmarillion character designs in their unique styles:
@busymagpie @celebrimbot @felixwhetsel @arlenianchronicles @cy-lindric @astronymus @mandhos @tar-miki
I had a lot of fun doing these and it really made me appreciate their artwork in such a deeper way,,, we are truly blessed to have each and everyone of them in this little corner of tumblr 💛
#I was gonna draw each of your character concepts too#but alas my style changes with every drawing and it wasn’t consistent at all :(#anywho let me tell you nice things about each artist in the comments :#busymagpie: friend your blending and coloring are next level! I couldn’t even come close to your technique! & I’m in love with your ears???#bless you#celebrimbot: master of anatomically correct posing and sephiroth bangs! your able to capture expressions so flawlessly it’s insane!#thank you for celeborn in new balance tennis shoes#I owe you my life#felixwhetsel: okay first off your style is adorable. the way you draw noses is precious and I’m a huge fan#secondly you’re amazing at simplifying and stylizing your characters forms! so much is portrayed through so little#masterful technique friend!#arlenianchronicles: um girl you’re kindness personified so jot that down real fast#and yeah??? your characters are all so consistent and beautiful and emotional??? I mean how do you do that so well??? teach me your ways#thank you for your wonderful contributions to this corner of the Internet 💛💛💛#cy-lindric: okay so you’re one of my major artistic inspirations! your drawings radiate this elegant playfulness and I’m absolutely in awe#the way you add highlights to hair and clothing and jewelry is just *chef’s kiss*#you are truly a master *not worthy* thank you for existing and blessing us with your beautiful artworks and animations!#astronymus: my rockin rolkien tolkien friend your Maedhros and Roberto drawings are my all time favorite things#your traditional pencil work is so confident and delicate at the same time it blows my mind#I wish I had half of your talent! thank you for the inspiration <3#mandhos: okay um... who gave you permission to color like that?? save some of that creativity for the rest of us friend!#you make highlight and shadow choices that I would never think to make and I’m so jealous of that!!!#all of your pieces are conceptual masterpieces and I didn’t even come close to replicating it! you’re incredible!!!#tar-miki: thank you for stopping on this planet while you traverse the galaxy bestowing wonderful art#your style is so unique and I had such a fun time trying to replicate it!#your loving attention to eyes is marvelous! there’s so much emotion packed in them it really just takes your drawings to the next level!#Omf and don’t get me started on your clothing and coloring choices??? perfection??? God bless you!#again theres so many more artists I wanted to include! maybe next time??? if I can make myself do it???#thank you for your contributions to the Tolkien community everybody 💛💛💛#silmart

crazy how much better other family members parents are than mine
#tiny talking#like my cousins son (lives with his mom. not my cousin) has gotten so many cool things fr9m his parents#like he got the switch as it came out. oculus quest whennit came out. just got a 400 somehting dolalr lightsaber#and so much more and his mom and step dad dont really make too much money. like theyre still living a house too small for the members that#live there. my other (girl) cousins son (hes 7 and they both still live with my aunt) and my actual cousin who is 10 that all luve in the s#same hosue get sucb cool shit too. leo (7 year old) just got an electric scotter after bwgging for it. got 2 hoverboards over the yeras#has a mini dirt bike. has a 4 wheeler and so much other shit that is expenaive and he never uses#and all that menawhile i myself have only gotten a ds for christmas when i wa slike 10#the switcj i have i had to buy with cgristmas miney which i had to pay half of and my brother paid the other half#laptop i had to save up myself and buy#and hell my dad even owes me over 1000 dollars#like even when i was young my dad was constantly working and my mon was off doing who knows what#my brother and i we were all with our grandparents because god damn how much worse we couldve had it#and im grateful but like my mom also died when i was 11 and then my dad had us move to another city#and then he was once again constanly working trying to provide for way more people with my 'step mom'not doing shit#and not making money or anything. so i guess we just felt bad and didnt ask for expesive stuff#like when my younger brother asked for an xbox one for christmas. he got it form our grandparents but as a joint present#it was his and my older brothers present all together.#and again i know hwo privileged this is. god it couldve been so much worse but still#im so very jealous because no one in my dads sude of rhe family is well off with money#but my dad has it worst and i guess#i mena now we are all back living wirh our grandparents#(my dad and all three of my brother and me) so like that move didnt work out#but fuck man. i wish i was able to ask for expensive things as a kid. i yhink i knew even then that it was yoo much so i just didnt#and he loves us and same with our mom but man i wish we had money#kids are coming to school with brand new cars cuase they just got tgeir drivers license#and im lucky enough that my dad know peopel so he got some cars for a cheap monthy payment and my great aunt cant drive anymore#so i help her out and in return i drive and take care of her car so like others have it way worse and our family is pretty mid with the#stuff we have but still#idk where this was going but it started off as my cousins son (the firat one) coming over and showing off his expensive lightsaber he got
