so Charlotte Bronte read Emma by Jane Austen and was really interested in this minor character named Jane Fairfax who was poor and would have been a governess had she not married well and then Bronte wrote her own novel exploring the plight of the poor governess who married this guy named Edward Fairfax Rochester in a novel called Jane Eyre and my point is don’t let anyone tell you shit about fanfiction.
SC’s reading 1q84 by Murukami and she sent this to me last night:
Aomame said, ‘The world is full of mistakes’ then the other person replied, ‘The world can be that way but I have my own way of doing things.’
Also ‘With facts what’s important is their weight and accuracy. Warmth is secondary.’
Then she goes, “Thats you.”
I’m not sure how I feel about this assessment. On one hand it’s true and I’m gratified she sees me as I am but on the other hand it doesn’t paint a very comforting picture, does it?
He loved her, of course, but better than that, he chose her, day after day. Choice: that was the thing.

I know there’s still massive flooding in parts of the metro and I should be thinking about the greater good but DAMMIT we were supposed to go away this weekend. I mean I bought a see through corset like lingerie thing and packed a blindfold to use on SC.
