To those who guessed the character in: New Character Sketch was named 'Rosie'..
Good job! You were right.
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..
if there hands are so big wheres the purple haired ones other hand
only explanation in her vagina lol im sorry
a pocket full of posie
We all fall down...
So innocent back then, now know to be a warning of the Black Plague
Does it only effect their hands and eyes or what
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.
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. (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.)
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.
Are they aware of what they are and how it effects other people?
