“Hey, I thought I would share this TCM headcanon with you. Remember that scene when Zeynel is getting ready to show carpets to the 2 French nobles and you show Ayse in the mirror instead of Zeynel’s reflection? I like to imagine that he can somehow summon an image of her in mirrors at will. That way he can be encouraged by seeing her.”

Aww that headcanon is so sweet!! Lmao, it’s not related to the mirror thing specifically but I have a sadder headcanon (?author’s canon?) re: Zeynel remembering her face. Anyone who has lost somebody after so many years and not have photographs of them will know what this headcanon might be.
Reimena Yee is a graphic novelist, artist and flamingo enthusiast.
She writes and illustrates quite a few webcomics and graphic novels. When not making books, she lulls away her time with essays on craft, life and experiences in the publishing industry. Some of her thoughts of art and life are rather unstructured and will evolve over time as this blog matures, as they should be.
