what disturbs me the most is the defiant stare... as if it's saying "that's right, im shoulder fucking this kid with my hand and you cant do a damn thing about it"
You said that so much more articulately than I thought it.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
