Rosie and Posie. by Endling Rosie and Posie. by Endling

To those who guessed the character in: New Character Sketch was named 'Rosie'..

Good job! You were right. :D

Twin sisters.. though they look quite young, they have been in the halls of Everafter longer than any of the other inmates..

It's highly recommended you don't try and hold their hand..

WOW! this is absolutely amazing! Funny how rare these ideas can be. I totally get the nursery rhyme idea. Scary. However, I wonder since it was rumoured that posies can stop the black plague, that Posie should be the one looking better? Or is it just that you're implying posies don't in anyway work? ANyway, BRILLIANT!
WillowInTheRain Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2015
If I remember correctly, it was thought that posies would block out the smell of the disease. Back then, disease was believed to be transfer by smell. So, they had posies in their pockets to counter this. (BTW, it didn't work.)

I suppose touching them is not a good idea, lest you contract a certain very nasty sickness?

The Plague tends to kill lots and lots of people....So probably not the brightest idea ever

entiendo la infeccion supongo pero a que se debe el problema de los ojos parece que sus craneos estan huecos
enrique01995 Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2012
rosie is originally a lullaby that also refers to the Black Death, it is assumed that the two sisters were infected and the infection is visible in the arms and eyes, and seems to affect him more posie in the left arm that it was cut off, right?
Omniczar Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Yeah, I agree. It is amazing how many children today sing that song today without realizing it's terrible, terrible origins.
GrimtalesRachel Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2013
what song is that???
Omniczar Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
'Ring Around the Rosie'. It's about the Black Death that killed a quarter of the world population back in the fourteen century.

How does posie see? She has one eye-patch and one (as far as I can tell) empty socket. Can't wait to see them in the story.

lumpley Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2011
Let me guess... "Ring around the rosie, pocket full of posies" and it's references to the Black Death and Great Plague?

Great characters! Scary and cute, deeply disturbing meets sweet and innocent (although there's not much of the latter...)
Rosie is absolutely terrifying, it looks like she's going to give you a hug, which would be nice if not for her, um, condition. I feel sorry for Posie, she looks kind of sad. Both her arms and her eyes, one's gone and the other's diseased... and she, unlike Rosie, seems aware of how bad it is. Poor girl.

This has a real "Silent Hill" feel to it, all though I'm sure I'm not the first to point it out haha.

Ring around the Rosies
Pockets full of Posies
Ashes to ashes
We all fall down!

^Based off a plague (read below)

Actual history: The plague that wiped out a ton of Europe. I don't recall what "Ring around the Rosies" meant, but having pockets full of posies supposedly kept one safe from the plague (it didn't), the "ashes to ashes" was when they burned the bodies carrying the plague to help keep the survivors clean of the disease, and finally "we all fall down!" you died.

True facts. I don't recall the plague; but I want to say it was the Bubonic plague, yet sadly I don't remember.

History does this to you; be careful. :P (Sorry for the sudden attack of comments, but I just stumbled upon your work just now and this one really got me going... sorry! I really love these characters though, and I promise not to hold their hands.)
Bloggg Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011
I always sing "atishoo atishoo, we all fall down..." Funny how things vary from area to area (assuming you don't live in London :P)
It's actually a common misconception that the kids rhyme "ring around the rosies..." etc is about the plague, like that idea that it's physically impossible for bumblebees to fly. It's more likely it's just a nonsense rhyme. They talked about it on QI, so if you can find it I'm sure Mr Stephen Fry can explain it much better than I can. :)
