We are horrible to more fictional people before nine AM than most people are all day.

All right, all right, I'm up, I'm up. And the tea is made, so it is time for Rien to discover that Perceval has a bad fever and won't wake up.

By the way, when I said that dust was nothing by fast-paced fluff, apparently I was lying. The theme showed up yesterday, wearing its little theme hat. It appears to be a book about the ways in which men mythologize women.

[madonna and whore and angel and nurturer]

Pedestals are tricky. Take a header off one, and you're likely to crack you head.

I wonder if it is also a book about the ways women mythologize men. I bet it is. [daddy and big brother and demon, anyone?]

And the ways in which we all mythologize ourselves, also.

(Sometime in late 2008, I will stumble across a review somewhere in which somebody says "In Bear's online journal, she stated that the primary theme of the book was X, and this ruined the work for me, because I kept looking for it." Damned if you do... which, come to think of it, is another one of those over-arching themes....)
