I just want to point out one thing here: When was the last time the girl kissed the boy in a teen romance? Ever? Has it happened ever? I seriously think it might not have happened ever.

Andie initiates a kiss between her and Blane in Pretty in Pink, but thats the only example I’ve got.

Protip: This is a really bad question to ask when visiting the National Mall. We have 8 buildings surrounding the Mall, and a total of 19 museums, 9 research centers and a National Zoo. A S.H.I.E.L.D agent should know better! 

(We think she means the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in this case.)  

More like sass-sthonian if you ask me.

Amanda, our Adult Services Manager, is Kvothe, from Patrick Rothfuss’s Name of the Wind. So, basically, she’s all the things.
Donna, our Reference Librarian, is Sebastian St. Cyr, from C.S. Harris’s Why Kings Confess. So, basically, she’s a Regency-era aristocrat who solves crime in her spare time.
Who are you?

Oooh yes, this makes me Tallula from Glen Duncan’s elitist-yet-amusing By Blood We Live. She’s a voracious, highly literate, sharply sarcastic werewolf mom so I could do a lot worse.

I’m Toronto’s train wreck of a mayor, Rob Ford. Hooray for me!

→ I. Uh. Fillmore Press, formerly known as the psychotic mass murderer, Madder Red, but currently a police consultant and all-around do-gooder. Completely reformed and rehabilitated. A-yup. (From Nick Spencer and Ryan Browne’s Bedlam, vol. 2.)
