    Summary

    “Think about it. What if you get everything you want? What if this works? What if, in pain and in the fear of pain, I yield to your will? Where you once had a friend, you will now have a cringing slave. Then, Annatar, and only then, will we both be lost beyond recall.”

    Summary

    Why do people go to class reunions? In our current world of Facebook, Linked In, Twitter and every other permutation from e-mail to iPad, it's possible to stay in touch with people we knew in high school-- and completely avoid those we never wanted to see again. But maybe some memories can only be faced down in person. Frederick I. Iverson explores this in his article on the reunion of the Sunnydale Class of '99. The date is July 26, 2014: This is Talk of the Nation, for NPR.

    On the 20th Anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, there is something incredibly satisfying about finding this. Irreverent, utterly real, and an absolute pleasure to read.

    (Okay, technically the Anniversary was a few days ago but whatever. I found it then. Kek.)

    10/10 would recommend. Super, super well thought out and awesome. Cannot even begin to use words although this is all the best words put together to form one of the best series I've ever read.

    Was this the face that launch'd a thousand ships,
    And burnt the topless towers of Ilium?
    Sweet Helen, make me immortal with a kiss.

    Or, Roboute Guilliman is informed sex is a good icebreaker and sets out to test that theory.

    Disney princesses being awesome at uni. Mulan is the only one with a sane and stable family background. People secure their independence and the avatar of rape culture gets his balls crushed and arrested.
