Spider Queen

The Spider-Queen was based on my mom who early on in her life had a great fear of spiders and later on a great love of them. Like a totem animal. She got the fear from the time she was washing dishes in her home as a teenager, and when she pulled her hand out of the soapy water there was a spider as big as her hand wrapped around it, leges between her fingers. Super gross. Then she realized that they were good for the environment, not very dangerous, great at building things and sometimes the world builder in some culture’s creation stories.

    She had small hands.

    Except black widows. Those things are scary.

    But other spiders are nifty. I watched one building its web a couple weeks ago, it was cool to watch.

    Well the one princess might have changed if she had used a chrysalis not a cocoon. Only, moths use cocoons. If she was on Babylon 5 and had super advance technology then she could change her DNA because humans are not that far removed from insects.
