Hello! I'm like a billion (years old). this is a mish-mash of lots of stuff. I think I'm getting out of fandom, but will probs still reblog some bits when it strikes me. wish me luck!
"what’s a queen without her king?" well, historically, better
also, in the british monarchy, if a queen is on the throne, there isn’t a king. her husband is a prince. BUT if a king is on the throne, his wife is a queen. which truly shows that the country can be ruled without a king but can’t without a queen.
You’re stuck in traffic right now. Your car hasn’t moved. The road is jammed. This traffic- will never cease. You won’t get there, darling. You have to get out of your car and start walking. You must let go of the car. It will be almost impossible to do it, for you have invested so much into it and you’re going to lose it. You’re going to lose all of it, all of her. You’ve lost her. But you really have to build the courage to get out of the car and start walking. You’ll die in that car. The car = her.
There are no Jack Kerouacs or Holden Caulfields for girls. Literary girls don’t take road-trips to find themselves; they take trips to find men.
"Great" books, as defined by the Western canon, didn’t contain female protagonists I could admire. In fact, they barely contained female protagonists at all.
