I'm not taking no fuckin' responsibility for cats I don't know, man.
@Oliver St. John Mollusc I'm actually a Smolderhalder fangirl from way back, but I find Damon mostly pretty boring. That said, I'm sorta Team Damon because I want Stefan and Katherine to be the endgame. (Or Stefan and Klaus. TVD never embraces homoeroticism like it ought.)
@Oliver St. John Mollusc Man, I think Paul Wesley is the hottest dude* on that show (since Michael Trevino is so scarce lately). Especially when he's playing Evil or Fun-Loving or Evil Fun-Loving Stefan, which he is great at.
* Nina Dobrev is obviously the hottest person.
Nathan Stewart-Jarrett's hotness does not get mentioned nearly enough.
@Lucienne That's interesting! I found Nellie's stories about working in a factory extremely traumatic.
The stuff about race slipped by me though - I only remembered it about fifteen minutes ago when I started clicking around on the American Girls Wiki.
@HereKitty The second one is quite Wooster-ish, isn't it?
I really loved this - of course I did.
But I also found it interesting because, well, I had a Samantha. And I guess I am kind of a Samantha, if only because I also spent my childhood cocooned in privilege.
But what sticks with me about Samantha is not the fur muff (although my Molly grandmother also made my Samantha doll a muff - AND an opera coat, among other ridiculous costumes) but rather that her books were my introduction to class consciousness, privilege, and feminism. Without Samantha, would I have been prepped for the Mitfords? (Probably, yes, because I read a lot. But those books were certainly my earliest exposure.)
@j-i-a I really miss 2009, turns out.
@Angry Panda Since, like, Nehru, right?
Yes! So excited this showed up here. :)
