The Beautiful & the Extraordinary: ribbon & Lace

Ask us anything!   ribbon's Tumblr   ribbon's Twitter   Splooga Tumblr   LACE's Twitter   

ribbon: I'm Lace's irreplaceable other half. I'm a writer, and I roleplay, read comic books and novels , and try to make friends on the internet. My favorite animals are owls, hedgehogs, and bears. I eat too many sweet things, play too many video games, and sometimes drool when I sleep.
Lace: I'm the beautiful accountant, and contrary to what my name might portray, I'm a strong, masculine man (who was lucky enough to find ribbon :3). People call me the cat's pajamas. Which is silly 'cause cats are naked and certainly shouldn't be partaking in any sort of capitalistic ideals like purchasing a consumer good. Silly cat.

This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those “Adopt a Soldier” programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a little beanie baby gold fish and a hand written note from a 7 year old girl that said  “Dear Soldier, (I wasn’t even mad) I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry you have to miss thanksgiving with your family. This is my friend Chester. He keeps me safe from monsters, but I think you need him more than I do. I hope he keeps you safe from the monsters you’re fighting. Take good care of him for me”.
You bet your ass that little fish was in my pocket every time I went on patrol.
