I wanted to draw an ecstatic Velvy being snuggled by Cindy in this one but she really wanted to capture his ick bubbles. Oh well. At least a little cute version of real-rabbit-Velvy is at the bottom.
My husband and I discussed it and he wanted to make sure people understood that Velvy cannot control his ick. At least, not on a conscious level. This short journal was meant to cement that theory:)
And thus it happened.
Note: For those not familiar with the Velveteen Rabbit’s story, “Blue Fairy” is who turned him into a real rabbit at the end of the tale. The Blue Fairy also appears in “Pinocchio” as the savior/wish granter. Funny, that coincidence, huh? :) Also, recall that to various Shards characters, “Blue Fairy” looks like some key characters from their own stores — the one who comes and lends a helping hand. This is important and will be made more clear in Chapter 4: Black and White. But first, let’s get on with these journals!
They kinda have his back, too.
Story Note: In “A Christmas Carol”, there appears for a very short section two not-exactly-children when the Ghost of Christmas Present takes Scrooge around. He said they were children of men’s making and are Want and Ignorance. I always liked their mention. Here is how they’re described: “They were a boy and girl. Yellow, meager, ragged, scowling, wolfish; but prostrate, too, in their humility. …. stale and shriveled… pinched and twisted…”. David recognizes them because he sees these as minor sins and he’s always on the lookout for those.
This particular Shards Journal storyline is taking a bit longer than the prior one but I hope you are enjoying it so far. We’ve still got two ghosts and more mysteries to solve! Boy, that sounds like Scooby Doo! Jinkies!
