|"Real isn't how you are made. It's a thing that happens to you. It doesn't happen all at once. You become. It takes a long time. |
Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby.
But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you cannot be ugly, except to people who don't understand."
