Men & fairy tales.

You think fairy tales are only for girls? Here’s a hint – ask yourself who wrote them. I assure you, it wasn’t just the women. It’s the great male fantasy – all it takes is one dance to know that she’s the one. All it takes is the sound of her song from the tower, or a look at her sleeping face. And right away you know – this is the girl in your head, sleeping or dancing or singing in front of you. Yes, girls want their princes, but boys want their princesses just as much. And they don’t want a very long courtship. They want to know immediately.

                       – David Levithan and Rachel Cohn.

This is what HE said. Makes a lot of sense, but in real life, I still don’t get the whirlwind princess-prince romance. Getting married after a day? Pshaw.


HP Lego minifig: Snape!


I don’t think I’ve posted this one here yet. So, to forget that I’ve been drooling over the Lord of the Rings Lego complete fellowship gang set in the previous entry, here’s my Snape magnet/minifigure which was a gift for me from France! The Lego Harry Potter magnet toys come as a trio in a pack: Harry, Snape, and Malfoy. I picked Snape because even if Harry is the most popular icon, he’s also the most common. In the end, Snape’s role in the whole saga had the most important role (he kicked some serious a**).

By the way, Snape went face-to-face with my other iconic Lego minifigure and also one of the most popular villains of all time, Darth Vader.

The two greatest villains of all time!

Sorry for the digression. Star Wars doesn’t seem have any literary history to be included in this blog. I mean, it’s a movie before it became books, right? Anyways, just sharing.
