Okay, why are there no good like platonic terms of endearment for women?? Like I need a girl equivalent of affectionately calling a male friend “dude” and I just can’t find it. There is this one moment in a short story where Lucas & EBW are having a moment of friendly…
You said EBW spent some time in Baltimore? We just say “hon”*; it’s gender-neutral when we use it, but since it’s a derivative of “honey,” you could argue that it’s maybe slightly more feminine than other alternatives.
*”Hon” is probably used all throughout the South, including southern Maryland; however, its frequency of deployment in conversation increases a gazillionfold approaching Highlandtown…

"Alfons Maria Mucha (Ivančice, 24 July 1860 – Prague, 14 July 1939), often known in English and French as Alphonse Mucha, was a Czech Art Nouveau painter and decorative artist, known best for his distinct style. He produced many paintings, illustrations, advertisements, postcards, and designs."
Art Fucking Nouveau. I will always have a space on my blog for that. Always.
Fun fact about Alphonse Mucha!
He spent every last cent of his money on live models because all he ever wanted to do was draw. He and a few other artists pitched together their money to pay for their life drawing models and they would each share one loaf of bread to share as their food for the week.
he almost went completely bankrupt hiring life models.

Aiya Van Kooten everyone
This is the best story of my life
“Although she was the only one home, Van Kooten said she had no regard for her safety - instead, she said she was just overwhelmed with “rage“….. ummmmm Hero!!!
Haha, badass Muslim woman. Love it!!!
This lady is so awesome. She lives with her grandma and was studying and had a towel on her head and no shoes but she chased them out of her garden, kicked one up the arse as he climbed a fence, they dropped a camera and laptop, she flagged down a passing driver to help her continue the pursuit, and they finally caught one of them in a park and pinned him as the police arrived. Now she’s going to visit the burglar in prison for the next few months to help with his rehabilitation.
So in summary:
This lady doesn’t just defend her home and loved ones, she will hunt you down, team up with other skilled individuals, get you put away, and then teach you the consequences of your actions until you’re a valuable member of society once more.
Seriously she’s a frigging superhero.

"John Galliano struck out on his own into the frozen wastes of Russian-Balkan folklore for Fall. A micro-bubble snowstorm was falling on the runway, and a trick of laser lighting created a magical illusion that the models were walking in some fairy-tale tunnel far, far removed from the brutish realities of humankind’s current worries. It was theater, escapism—the creation of a parallel fantasy world upon which the concerns of "fashion" barely impinged. Toward the end, the show moved into more traditional Galliano territory with a sequence of spun-silver bias-cut dresses that had all the delicate romance his fans adore.” - Sarah Mower.
John Galliano f/w 2009.
