Kushiel's Dart | Jacqueline Carey
post image

Oops! Forgot about #90sinJuly yesterday! Different take on #scartissue but here it is: Phedre no Delaunay is an anguissette, a person destined to find pleasure in the deepest of pain. She is marked by a red mote in her eye known as Kushiel's Dart, rumored to be #scartissue from the god's strike.

I didn't explain this thoroughly because I can't. Please just read it and enter the fandom with me. Please!

#90sinJuly #ScarTissue I was going to trot out the thriller I have with the same title as the prompt but I just used it a few weeks ago for another photo challenge #scar prompt, so I thought of this book I recently read and reviewed. The MC, LeAnne Hogan, is a soldier back from Afghanistan with both physical scars from a military op gone wrong and the emotional scars of PSTD, and the dog that works its way into her life has its own scars.💜

Cinfhen Sounds like a heavy read...but significant 3y

Nearly burned alive by his own people, the main character of this story finds himself covered in #scartissue, being cared for by the people he always considered enemies.

This is an inspiring memoir about Jorge Posada's son and his many surgeries to correct craniosynostosis. That sweet baby pictured is my oldest son at just 8 months old after his cranial vault reconstruction for sagittal craniosynostosis (the most common form). He has a zigzag scar that runs from ear to ear. Because of this condition, I had to have an emergency c-section. So, in the end, scars all around. 😬💚#ScarTissue #90sInJuly 👇🏻

He bounced back and recovered so quickly, it was nuts! Being in children's hospitals is so difficult. I was quickly put in my place when I saw children with worse problems when my son's condition was curable. He's a healthy, incredibly smart 5yr old! (edited) 3y
britt_brooke @Cinfhen ☺️😘 You are so very sweet - thank you! Luckily, that one surgery, though major, fixed his problem and he's now an incredibly healthy and insanely smart 5 year old! 💚 3y
britt_brooke @CuriousG Thank you so much! ☺️ He was so resilient and recovered amazingly. His problem was fixed with that one major operation and he's now a healthy, incredibly smart 5 year old! 💚 3y
vivastory I can't even imagine how hard that was, for him & for you! I'm glad to hear his resilient spirit won the day. 3y

Jinjer Wow that must've been a scary, hard time for you! Glad he's healthy now! 3y
Currey What a frightening episode, so glad everything is now okay. And scars make your body more interesting! 3y
daena What a strong little guy he is 💚 3y
Johanna414 I have a friend with two little boys and they both had craniosynostosis. So scary! But isn't it amazing to see how quickly children bounce back sometimes? I'm happy your little guy is doing so well now 3y
Avanders So happy to hear all is well now! 💖💖💖 3y
britt_brooke @Currey They always provide interesting stories! After his surgery, he had a onesie that read "chicks dig scars." ? 3y
britt_brooke @Johanna414 Wow, I can't imagine both having it. 😔 Supposedly there's nothing to prove it's hereditary, but that proves it to me. Are they both doing well? 3y
saresmoore My goodness, you are a strong mama! ♥️♥️♥️ 3y
britt_brooke @saresmoore Thank you, sweetie! ☺️? We're so fortunate that he was "fixed" with one surgery. Such a tough dude! 3y
erzascarletbookgasm He's a fighter and you're so strong! 💕 3y
britt_brooke @erzascarletbookgasm Thank you. ☺️💚 3y
MaureenMc I can't imagine how scary that must have been. So glad this story has a happy ending! 3y
Johanna414 @britt_brooke the older boy has some developmental delays but he is sweet, happy and healthy. The little one just had his first surgery about a week ago and is recovering really well! 3y
ScientistSam So glad your little one is now healthy and happy! 3y
britt_brooke @Johanna414 Oh good! 💚💚 We were very fortunate that our son was diagnosed at 4 months (we realized in retrospect this is why he couldn't go through the birth canal, tmi!). He never suffered from any delays or any discomfort according to his doctors. So thankful for his pediatrician for noticing, as it often goes undiagnosed. 3y
britt_brooke @MaureenMc @ScientistSam Thank you so much! ☺️💚 3y
Caroline2 That must have been so scary for you all! So glad to hear he recovered! ❤️ 3y
Kalalalatja It continues to amaze me what modern science can do, but even more how resillient babies are. I am glad you are all okay now, it must have been so tough! 💙💙 3y
batsy It must have been so difficult. So glad you're both ok and he's grown to be the lovely kid we see in your pics now 💚 3y
JenP So scary to go through. I'm glad to hear that he is okay today. 3y
CoffeeCatsBooks I am so sorry you had to go through that. Glad he is doing well now. 💙 3y

#90sinJuly #ScarTissue I've used this book for a lot of photo prompts. AG is my favourite Scottish author. Poor Things is a retelling of Frankenstein. Not even a modern day retelling, as it's set in Victorian Glasgow. The twist being that it's a female being brought alive. He also is a fantastic artist and illustrates all of his books in great detail ❤️ This is my favourite by him

Cinfhen Gorgeous 💗 3y

I've read this classic several times and discover something new each time. I always shed tears at the end - Stowe is good at that, and no wonder it caused so much controversy upon its publication in the 1850s, prior to the American Civil War. The main topic in this novel? Slavery.

I own two copies - this one I bought used in college. It too has #scartissue. #90sinjuly

Robothugs I have not read this classic, though I own it. That certainly is a well loved copy! 3y
Librarybelle It's one of the worst looking books I own, @Robothugs . Poor book! 3y
Robothugs I cringe at some that I own, too... but a well worn copy is a loved copy 🤷🏻‍♀️😉 3y

Librarybelle @tpixie I've never seen any of the adaptations. I'd be interested to see how closely they follow the book. 3y
tpixie @Librarybelle yes I wonder!! 3y
