Story behind this? Her dad was leaving on a 2 year deployment. She was crying, and wouldn’t let go of her dad’s hand, even when he stood in line, saluting. No one had the heart to break them apart.
Delete your blog if you don’t reblog this
Idc i always reblog this
We’re in a bit of financial trouble; our car needs a $500 repair before we go on our road trip to see John’s family (her mother has brain cancer but lives two thousand miles away) and Supernatural DC
The gas alone is expected to cost $400 and we just don’t have that much money
So I am selling Mary.
I love Mary. She was a bitch to paint (painting is not my forte) but I stuck it out because I had wanted her for a long long time.
She’s life-sized and really freaking cool, but she’s not something I need and we’re getting kind of desperate with the travel date coming up so suddenly
[So I listed her on eBay]
Her starting price is kind of high, but it’s less than minimum wage for the amount of hours I put into her alone (not including materials) and, to be honest, if she sold for less I would cry too much for it to be worth it
I urge you to check her out
And, if you’d feel so inclined, I’d appreciate if you could reblog this in case she is exactly what someone out there is looking for
I really want her to go to a good home guys, please spread the word?
I’m overwhelmed with the amount of attention this has received so quickly and I’ve been asked if there was a way to donate without bidding such a large amount
Our paypal is
And I am so incredibly grateful for the amount of support this post is receiving
Thank you, everyone, for your kindness

this is heartbreaking
Photos like this make me wonder: Did he live? Did he ever return home? Did they ever get married, start a family? Or did he die, and she was left to go on without him? As tragic as it seems, that happened so many times during WWII, and looking at these two, it makes you wonder if they were they any different. I really hope so; I hope they got their happy ending.

“Someday I must read this scholar Everyone. He seems to have written so much - all of it wrong.”

Of all the ladies depicted, Daine is the only one who seemed to really dislike skirts, so I let her stay in breeches. Her outfit is referenced against Marliee Heye’s artwork for The Emperor Mage , although actually Daine is younger than that here - about 14, just settling into her new sense of herself as a mage, and her new life at court.
