Rotting of Girlhood: A Brief Introduction

We sprout, we blossom, we ripen, we rot. In a world that three feminine beings were forced into, they are taught to desert the flowers they have grown and watch them wilt, trading their blossoms for apples, and allowing them to decay by bacteria and fungi (which may ruin them).

IVY

(She/Her)

PETAL

(She/Her)

Played by: Sarah Allen

A feminine being, the epitome of her name: soft, graceful, kind, gentle, her playlists consist of Joni Mitchell and Dolly Parton, will kick your ass like Miss Piggy, definitely a Taurus rising.

FIG

(They/Them)

Played by: Zoe Magirias

A feminine being (realizes they are that and more later in life), selfless, bursting with wisdom and knowledge like Owl from Winnie the Pooh or Sandy Cheeks from Spongebob Squarepants.

LION

A boy, radiates sunshine, empathetic, golden retriever, orders frappucinos at Starbucks, stopped listening to Drake after the diss track, did some self-reflection after he watched the Barbie movie.
