I love the smell of collage in the afternoon

Work in progress.
More Happy Family members keep arriving. The Misfit Sisters, too: Olivia and Hilda.
I don't know if it's a fiction writing baggage, but while I'm making these characters (see? I call them characters already), I cannot help telling their story, where they come from, why they look the way they do, why the hairdo, who buys their clothes for them. Olivia and Hilda, in particular, had me laughing hard a couple of hours ago.
I don't know if you will laugh, though, when you meet them. They look dark and creepy. Maybe too much Joy Division playing in this house. No, wait -there's never too much Joy Division.
Should I start tagging everything with "goth"?
