I like the way my auntie feels, warm like a candle, all over like her cheek, all over like under her chin, all over like the place on her shoulder she holds me to and shh shhs when I used to be scared. 1,891 more words
I'm trying very hard not to let the Cernunnos thing ruin the whole Cousins O'Dwyer Trilogy for me (because I identified with Branna a LOT, and her relationship with Finn had similarities to mine with Odin); still, I loved that trilogy so much up until that point that the identity-reveal of the "demon villain" was a big slap in the face. Even more so, the recent glomming onto Vodou deities as villains--although to be honest, the misrepresentation of Vodou (or demonology/-atry, for that matter is hardly a new thing. Still, why do writers have to go there? Come on, you guys, put your creative caps on and come up with something better--and less racist.
