I Just Want More Fic Without Having to Write It Myself
Tadaaaaaa~ first character !
Ok, so she’s named Ditzah, wich is an hebrew name (meaning “joy”). And she is a Gorgon ! She is 16 and scales have started to take a good part of her body (she has a lot on her legs).
Growing scales doesn’t hurt that much because it’s a very slow process, but god it scratches ! The areas of her skin wich are slowly turning into scales tend to be red due to the scratching but also the fact that it’s growing.
Her little snakes tend to have their own mind at the beginning, it takes a lot of pratice to have control of them (wich is why she goes to a support group for gorgons, with yoga and a lot of relaxation) but in the end they’ll be a complete part of herself ! They to bite off her hair, making it shorter and shorter and slowly making place for her coming snakes. But with no control over them, they tend to also bite things that are near, like her friends and people on the bus. Awkward yea. They also sotimes keep her awake at night, poking her face tehehe
She has that kind of very peppy perosnnality, always up for everything, jogging on saturday mornings, excited about a new chapter in science !
I hope you like her. :3 ♥
(The first time I drew her I had these beautifules ladies in mind and decided to found that photo again while drawing this !)
She is just too cute, oh my gods! And I love the way the snakes are biting her hair to make room for other snakes. <3

I love this post so much…I’m actually crying a little bit. This is literally the very first time I am seeing women who look like me in art I *wish* I could have studied in art school. I am currently in debt from pursuing a degree that is largely indifferent to the history of my people, especially our women. Instead of memorizing and writing essays discussing the same images of the same white people over and over again why couldn’t we have learned about these beautiful renderings? I feel largely betrayed but inspired.
I am so excited to research these works independently and share what I learn with other POCs of all ages. Especially the young ones. I may start teaching again because of this post. This very well may have been just the spark I need to start some bitchin’ fires.
