I hatehatehate mind-numbingly irrational plot developments. 

The Castle premiere is killing me. OF COURSE Castle must be in on the kidnapping. There could be NO OTHER POSSIBLE EXPLANATION. It’s not like blackmail and long-range snipers and a thousand other things could be used to make somebody do something against their will. Nope.

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.

Literary girls don’t take road-trips to find themselves.

Literary girls don’t take road-trips to find themselves.

And so when a real girl decides to do so, men tell her it isn’t safe. Better stay home.

… I was talking about the adult pool wonderland, not the left-behinds, lol. I don’t think it’d turn out too great for us either, people cling to tradition when scared, so I don’t think everyone would take it in stride and behave rationally.

Hahaha, I thought “pooped in the shallow end” was a metaphor lolol.

eytancragg:

sometimes i think about how silverqueen met david suchet once and i get really jealous

she met him through deception and cheatery

so the moral of this story is that you should lie and cheat more


Actually tho I feel like that’s the problem with all the other thought-experiments about civilization collapsing and being rebuilt - zombies, virus, cataclysm, etc. People start killing each other and enslaving each other to survive, they fight over scarce resources, etc.

I feel like maybe, just maybe, if you eliminated the people with the most prejudices, the most ability to fight and use weapons, the most ability to hoard/control resources, and with established families they feel like they have to protect at the cost of everyone else’s life, maybe working together might become easier. All the survivors would be just as bewildered as everybody else, and the necessity of doing something to take care of the swarms of children left without parents might spur people to form communities rather than the kind of every-man-for-himself attitude that pervades most apocalyptic thrillers.

dendensden replied to your post: “Has anyone ever written a book about all the adults disappearing from…”:
Check out “Mecanoscrit del segon origen”/”Mecanoscrito del segundo origen”. It’s a very popular catalan novel from the 70’s where almost everyone dies from an unknown cause, and the efforts of a teenage girl and a young boy in this world.
