Quills + daggers

My Jane Austen action figure comes with a quill. But check out her shadowy side:

Is it me, or does that shadow look… malevolent? More dagger than writing utensil?

Or both tools at once?

Slay your inner demons, your metaphoric beasts, your Angel in the House; slash through the jungle of despair and uncertainty; sever yourself from the world of distractions; slice those words and sentences with surgical precision; hold the blade to someone’s throat, maybe even your own.

Leave some blood on the floor.
