On The Outskirts: Pictures, etc.

If you donated to Fandom Fights Tsunami and got the compilation AND you read the first chapter of my new story On the Outskirts, this post is for you. I used a ton of visuals while writing that chapter, and I wanted to share them. So here ya go! Look for the rest of the story to start posting in July.

Thanks for reading and thanks for donating!


Here are some pictures of The Casino. It was a very real place. Unfortunately it's no longer standing, but anyone who grew up in Northeastern NC during the middle part of the 20th century can tell you LOTS of stories about it.

This picture of Jack Kerouac really, really makes me think of Edward. I mean, obviously Edward is way hotter, but that's not really the point. ;)

Riptide. This is a real Banker Pony from Ocracoke island. Exactly what I imagine him to look like.

Just to give you an idea of where Edward lives. This is a modern photo, but those houses have been there since the early 1900s. People used to take a ferry down to the Banks and stay for the summer. They would bring everyone in their household and even chickens and cows. There's a few houses like this left down here and they're commonly referred to as The Unpainted Aristocracy.

That's it for now. I may add more as I write more. Again, thanks for reading!

Leave me some love. Validation. Reason for living. Confirmation that I am not, in fact, a lunatic. Ok, that might be stretching it.
