    Beautiful, chilling... "skeleton-peeking-through-skin-afternoons" Is an astonishingly strong, visceral image (I am a huge fan of creating really long nouns from dashes) I also love the way you begin t

Why should Caesar just get to stomp around like a giant while the rest of us try not to get smushed under his big feet? Brutus is just as cute as Caesar, right?

We should totally just stab Caesar!
