Lady of Shalott by Coriander Shea

Lady of Shalott
by Coriander Shea

Prompt: lady of shallot
prompted by: hexyr, during Sketch Fest #34 (March, 2013)

...When Her resources were ripped from Her, She sought solace in the tower, far away from the claws of those that would take what She did not have to give. They were blind and greedy, like viruses in their mad consumption. She stole sticks and dirt, She made what She could...but it was never enough to sate their lusts, and they ripped into Her when She let them come too close. They blamed Her for Her shortcomings, and after awhile...She began to believe them...for what is a maker without Her resources?...


hexyr says: I always try to comment right away sorry I didn't. This is a different take on her weaving. It is amazing. Her dress needs some dark vibrant colors could really show the folds in the fabric ~ Reply?

     Coriander Shea replied to this: Oh, this is such a wonderful thing to wake up to- thank you so very very much! Wow, you really made my day!

hexyr says: I realized why I never commented I used my reg com. when I saw this and that comp and this site don't mesh. Your email comment was longer. A deep royal blue with deep crimson trim (combine the ideas) could look amazing ~ Reply?

     Coriander Shea replied to this: Oh don't worry about it! I'm just grateful for what I have. :) Yeah, the comment did get cut off because of the heart symbol, it makes it hiccup lol. What browser do you use with the site? I use Firefox on my laptop which has always worked well and Safari on my iPad which works.....passably, but it throws fits sometimes. ;)
