Dindrane the Grail Heroine
without blood there is no purity
"I have seen the Holy Grail
… Rose-red with beatings in it, as if alive,
Till all the white walls of my cells were dyed
With rosy colors leaping on the wall”
Percivale’s sister passionately pursued a scaldingly pure, ascetic life as a nun. She achieved an unparalleled level of holiness and, after prolonged prayer and fasting, was granted a vision of the Holy Grail. She told the knights of this beatific vision and with them pursued it on the famous crusade, encountering many supernatural adventures. She died before finding the Grail — according to some traditions she was murdered but others say that she sacrificed her own saintly blood to miraculously heal a town of leprosy.

That was supposed to be just a quick and simple mermaid drawing, but then I did a background. What’s gotten into me?!
If you ever feel bad about failing to save your work before your computer crashes, just remember that the Dyad Institute had made one of the greatest accomplishments in genetic history and failed to back up their only copy.
#It’s highly suspicious that that’s actually the case #when had Dyad ever told the trust without telling fifty lies first #and Charlotte is WAY too close for them to not have had the original genome to work with

The Book of Miracles that first surfaced a few years ago and recently made its way into an American private collection is one of the most spectacular new discoveries in the field of Renaissance art. The nearly complete surviving illustrated manuscript, which was created in the Swabian Imperial Free City of Augsburg around 1550, is composed of 169 pages with large-format illustrations in gouache and watercolor depicting wondrous and often eerie celestial phenomena, constellations, conflagrations, and floods as well as other catastrophes and occurrences. It deals with events ranging from the creation of the world and incidents drawn from the Old Testament, ancient tradition, and medieval chronicles to those that took place in the immediate present of the book’s author and, with the illustrations of the visionary Book of Revelation, even includes the future end of the world.
