I really need… to find a girl who has read the Dresden Files.
Because I really want to talk to a girl fan about the books and I’ve only ever met boys who have read them and while that’s great and all there are just some things you can’t discuss with a boy. Like Karrin Murphy. Or Queen Mab. And the stuff that happens to these characters, you know? Does anyone get what I’m asking?

Being embarrassed to have such an ugly runt among their alluring ranks. Shunning and ignoring her until she broke down and gave in.
