So my critique group had a Christmas party over the weekend, and besides the amazing fun we all had rolling dice (in a non-gambling sort of way), we got presents.
So what was their present?
Weeping Angels, from Dr. Who. I would like to say I drew both of these pictures, but that would be a lie. The one ready to jump out of the picture… those ones are real.
So what is a Weeping Angel? It’s something that resembles a stone statue, but it comes alive when you aren’t looking. Even when you blink. And they are fast and deadly — angel assassins.
And as you can see from the terrified expressions, the gift did the job! Rachel is even hiding behind her frame. [Remember, the image of an angel becomes an angel, so now I’ve found the best way to wipe out my writing competition… er… celebrate the Christmas season!] The best part of all is that another girl in the group had the same idea to give out these non-Christmas angels.
Yeah… about that. I think I better decorate the rest. Sad to say the tree has been up for about two weeks now. Go me!!
[disclaimer: It is not my fault if a Weeping Angel appears beside you as a result of the pictures on this blog. My advice is to read it really fast and DON’T BLINK!]
