And when you finally find him, dark with cold

from her brutal kisses, he doesn’t even

recognize you. You stop blaming the shard

in his eye; how can you rescue a man

whose heart, transfixed by skeletal crystal,

craves the bruising of frost?

"Fashion is one of the very few forms of expression in which women have more freedom than men. And I don’t think it’s an accident that it’s typically seen as shallow, trivial, and vain. It is the height of irony that women are valued for our looks, encouraged to make ourselves beautiful and ornamental… and are then derided as shallow and vain for doing so. And it’s a subtle but definite form of sexism to take one of the few forms of expression where women have more freedom, and treat it as a form of expression that’s inherently superficial and trivial. Like it or not, fashion and style are primarily a women’s art form. And I think it gets treated as trivial because women get treated as trivial. What’s more, there’s an interestingly sexist assumption that often gets made about female fashion — namely, that it’s primarily intended to get male attention and male approval."

Fan-made cover for SPLINTERED by A.G. Howard! I’m a huge fan of the original cover (ugh, so gorgeous - I wish my digital painting skills were that good) so I wanted to try my hand at something a little different~
Don’t hate it too much! Enjoy &lt;3
