I had nightmares every night for over a year and found this while cleaning out the attic. I immediately claimed it and set it on the dresser across from my bed. That night when I slept I dreamt I woke up and she was sitting on the end of my bed facing out at the room, hands in her lap. She told me she was keeping watch and I wouldn’t have any nightmares with her there, and I didn’t for a long time! So she watches over me now
The Old Boy, which I came across by accident on eBay while looking for mementos mori and couldn’t stop thinking about for months until I finally had to purchase him. Why the grin? Why sic transit Gloria mundi on the circus ball?! My brother is convinced he’s deeply cursed and is the proof that my role in a horror movie would be bringing some messed up little object home and unleashing doom but look at him, he makes me so happy
@checkervest that's the practice level gom jabbar box. you just stick one finger in to see if you can take it
@Blakely I love this, trial-sized gom jabbar. bene gesserit can have a little tiny pain to see if they're human, as a treat
@monsoonrains me too! it's a little piece of them in my life. I had to keep this doll locked in a drawer ever since they died because it is so associated with them, seeing it in their house, seeing the clothes it wears that my grandmother made, knowing it's their hair. but I think I'm finally at a point with grief where I can appreciate it as a kind reminder of them
@hex I've got a built in bookshelf in the little office room with a middle display section and you'd better believe at the very least The Old Boy will be there in pride of place
@beckett it sure isn't! he graduated law school when I was in kindergarten and then quit being a lawyer when I was in second grade
