    “Eurydice sits alone on a red bed. She has flaming red hair, so flaming that you cant see anything else of her, much less anything else around her.
    She takes up too much space. Also shes mad. Which has nothing to do with anything. She lives in her own world because she makes the whole world hers.”
    (Eurydice in the Underworld)
