@ blusongz : YES! I loved auctioneer!Parker and how Nate kept having to remind her to focus on the con rather than the 16 angry henchmen who chased her through the Palace of Versailles :p I can’t decide what was my favorite part: Parker’s color commentary? the various reactions of the fancy people in the crowd? her long-suffering and occasionally baffled assistant? or Pink Shirt, who was so awestruck by her he almost ruined the con?
“Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN.” x
