breaking through the red thread by ~DarkenedSakura on deviantART
Aka, when your drawing ends up like rainbow vomit, whoops.
Red thread symbolism - Asian legend where two people destined to be together are connected by a red string, usually attached at the pinky. A concept sometimes used by writers as an utter cop-out to writing a plausible romance into the script.
Unfortunately, I don’t believe in fate. So, Happy Valentine’s Day - and if you’re being strangled by the red string, here’s wishing you what it takes to break free! (No, I’m not particularly romantic, why do you ask?)
(and yeah, probably not an ideal gift for V-Day, but you work with what you are, lol.)
Also fun fact - technically I think many schools in Japan ban the kids from bringing sweets (year-round, in middle school), but it's more or less allowed on this day. Got some sweets from some of the female students myself, haha. Oh, these kids.
(also back to being petrified about tomorrow's ep. I call it that Makishima's going to die or otherwise be put out of the picture, though. That or he'll become the scariest antagonist ever in the history of ever. So I'd prefer death.)
