@agreenballoon Thank you thank you thank you, one million times. Also: OK!


I knew there was a reason I love Ursula LeGuin so much.


Mmm... I think you're underselling first-wave feminism here. Louisa May Alcott basically admitted she only married off a lot of her characters because her fans demanded love stories-- she didn't write husband-hunting heroines, she wrote stories about ambitious young girls and sometimes sequels in which they got married to their childhood friends or their cousins, but still had careers.

@bluewindgirl You're absolutely right. Luckily, she also didn't write "Friday."


Ursula LeGuin punchline is killer


I laughed out loud at Jane Austen. So perfect! I also love her bonnet.
