A veces, el resentimiento por el abandono y la soledad se hace tan fustigante que odias a diestra y siniestra, odias cualquier emanación viviente.
"Shit, are you bleeding?!" / Sköll & Hati owo
"Found you!" Sköll yelled as he pounced over a bush. The grin on his face was gone almost immediately, though. "Shit, are you bleeding?!"
Hati lifted her gaze from her inner thighs and nodded in silence. Sköll ran like lightning into the house, pulling his sister along. “MOOOOOOOOM! MOOOOOOOOOM! IT’S HAPPENING!”
"What’s happening?" asked Fenrir with a confused look on his face.
"DAD! HATI’S FEMALE VIKING TRAINING! IT’S HAPPENING!" he replied with glee.
Artica came out of the bedroom with a sleepy look. “Why is Sköll yelling?”
"Hati’s female viking training is happening, apparently?"
"Oh!" she said with a smile, carrying the little girl in her arms. "How about that…?"
"…The female viking training is her period?" the God Warrior had to ask, staring at the red blotch on Hati’s pants.
Artica laughed. “Yeah. Sköll was having some trouble understanding the concept so I… got creative.”
"Hati’s female viking training".
Si alguien me lo hubiese explicado así, todo hubiera sido distinto u.ú
Which one of your characters do you most relate to?
This is my moment in history… no one has ever known anything about the Ukraine ( at least no one I’ve known ) until now. As a weird immigrant kid with a weird Ukrainian name, I will always identify with Pygmy. But I have never sodomized anyone in a Wal-Mart bathroom. That part is fiction. ( mostly )
What is your favorite quote (or quotes)?
My favorite quote is from Amy Hemple who wrote: “What dogs want is for no one to ever leave.”
My second favorite quote is from Nora Ephron who wrote: “Sex plus guilt equals good sex.”
Is it weird to see people wearing merch from your books or hear people quote them? (or does this happen?)
It’s the tattoos that impress me. Now, whatever I write I wonder if I’ll eventually see it on someone’s naked body. Not that I mind.
I picked up Pygmy out of the blue a year or two ago, and good lord, I have to know, after writing in that dialect for god knows how long, did you start to talk that way too?
I wrote the ‘Pygmy’ dialect the way I speak German, so it came very easily. Angela Merkle has written, personally asking me to stop butchering their language. Auf Weidersehen.
Send me a pairing and a line of dialogue and I’ll write you something?
- "I just really need to have you here right now."
- "Didn’t you see what I did?!"
- "Oh fuck, oh FUCK."
- "Please come get me."
- "Where are you?!"
- "I’m coming, just sit tight!"
- "Look at me - just breathe, okay?"
- "I can’t breathe!"
- "You don’t have to stay."
- "It’s all my fault."
- "It’s all YOUR fault!"
- "Don’t fucking touch me."
- "Please I just… really need space right now."
- "I’m right here. I’m not going anywhere."
- "I’m gonna be sick."
- "Ever wonder if the world would be better off without you… ?"
- "I’m sick of being USELESS."
- "You’re not useless."
- "Shit, are you bleeding?!"
- "Please, put it DOWN."
- "Shh, c’mere…"
- "It’s okay to cry…"
- "Don’t listen to them. Don’t you EVER listen to them."
- "I’m not cut out for this."
- "Just leave me ALONE."
- "Please listen to me-"
- "You can trust me."
- "Don’t trust me."
- "What happened doesn’t change anything."
