Probably the least harsh thing I’ve said all day

It’s taking all my power not to troll the person who called my response to the question “why do people think cis gender is a slur solely based on its existence?” harsh and who told me “stereotyping people is not the way to go here.”

My response was “because cis people have never had to qualify their gender before the way trans* people have. It’s all about privilege and not recognizing you have it”

Sabriel by Margot Wood

In the early 1990s, Garth Nix went to a flea market in Sydney, Australia and looked through a box of old, early 1900s photographs that were being sold for a dollar a piece. As he flipped through the photos he came across a photograph of a young woman in a military style coat wearing a belt made out of bells and holding a sword. He studied the photo, wondering who this mysterious woman was. He purchased the photo, took it home and promptly wrote the draft for his young adult high-fantasy novel, Sabriel. THIS DID NOT ACTUALLY HAPPEN. But what if it did? And that, my beautiful friends, is the idea behind this fauxto. I wanted to do something different for my Young Adults fauxto series. I’ve recently been doing character portraits and knew I wanted to do one for Sabriel, but to give it a twist, I wanted to take a fauxto of a real person that would serve as the inspiration for the fictional character. Does that make any sense? Basically, in my imagination, Garth Nix based Sabriel off a real person and I wanted to explore what that woman would look like and voila, you have the image before you.

My friend Margot (The Real Fauxtographer) has an amazing series where she interprets YA novels into these wonderful, wonderful photos (see also, her Code Name Verity photo, and her photo for Shadow and Bone - amazing).
I had the privilege of sitting for her on her Sabriel photo. Personal bias aside, this is a pretty special photo to me because Sabriel is one of my absolute favorite books ever, and she’s a heroine near and dear to my heart.
When Margot first approached me about this portrait, I shared with her that a lot of readers may disagree with her interpretation because Sabriel is interpreted as white (I mean, it’s pretty canon). Her response -  “you’re pale, you have dark hair, you’re Sabriel” - while simple, is gratifying and validating to me. Not a lot of people would be flexible to the idea of having a POC pose as a traditionally white heroine, making this doubly special, and even more awesome.
View the rest of Margot’s wonderful fauxtos here, and give her a shout on Twitter, will you? She’s pretty funny.

i saw this and thought “omg that looks JUST LIKE reelbs” and then i saw this post and i’m so thrilled it really is you because this series kicks so much ass and this is a really really great interpretation

SABRIEL!

Oh wow, what a cool idea
