the mother & the father

Tastemaker gold badge
created by: Max Sturtevant
A dark tea that suggests a dark presentation and a dark past. Assam, Irish Breakfast & Chestnut (and no frills!) for a strong tea that might just soften up a little if you add some cream.

The Corps is the Mother, the Corps is the father. I started with Bester because he always stands out in my mind - he's that character that you love to hate, that does everything he can to seem like so much worse than he actually is... but in the end it turns out he might even be helping someone other than himself.
