I breathe deeply, in and out. I am not just a girl—no woman is. And if Heaven has deposited me at this time and place, then I am meant to deal with these problems, no matter their scale or consequence.

“My father was one of the best swordsmen south of the Yangtze River. I am his heir. Do you think any Rouran soldier can stand in my path?” Are elderly women easier to fool than seven-year-olds? Which one wants more desperately to believe that a loved one will return against all odds? Auntie Xia looks at me, half in astonishment, half in wonder—and I have my answer. Even more than Murong, she needs to believe I will come back safe and whole.

Marnie: Gloria needs our help! I know she pushed you guys, and she always gets in over her head. She can be so stupid, which I love, I MEAN HATE! In any case, she needs you right now, which is sweet, I mean, I hate it, and it's dumb!
Sonia: (glares skeptically)
Hop: ...You lost me.

What does Magnolia do once Sonia becomes Galar’s professor and hands over her research? From what I’ve seen of her, she doesn’t seem like the person who likes to be idle. But she barely appears post main-game.
I think the garden and the various plants at her house are hers. She’d have a separate greenhouse where she raises and nurtures plants as well as some crops. It’s her own little haven where she can retreat, for time on her own and / or to give Sonia space in the office. I like to think she realized that she was stiffling Sonia and that it’s okay that her grand-daughter is doing her own thing.
She likes to meet up with MC’s mom for tea and to talk about botany and raising plants. Now that Magnolia has much more free time, she also travels around Galar. One of her favorite places is Balloonlea for its cozy atmosphere, the fascinating mushrooms, and Opal. (I might be shipping these two a bit.)
Now that I think about it, it’s very likely that Opal was already a gym leader when Magnolia became Professor.
Addendum: Magnolia also likes Balloonlea for another reason. Most of the streets and paths aren’t paved, which makes them easier for her joints to walk on. This deep in the Glimwood Tangle, the trees’ foliage is so thick that it’s rare that rain or snow will make the streets muddy.

FIRST OF ALL: SONIA HAS A GRAMP!?!? DIDN'T KNOW THAT
SECONDLY: IF THAT QUOTE THAT HE SAID ISN'T FORESHADOWING I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS
AND FINALLY: I SEE A TROPHY. I DON'T KNOW WHO IT. BELONGS TO AND WHAT FOR BUT I'M GONNA SAY THAT IT BELONGS TO PROFESSOR MAGNOLIA AND THAT SHE USED TO BE THE G. IF NOT HER THE SONIA.

My opponent salutes me with proper decorum and respect. I return the gesture. Those of us trained in the way of martial arts like to cloak our violence with as much ceremony as possible.

But in truth I don’t mind observing the rules for men. They get to concern themselves with how things should be done, while women must comply with everything that isn’t allowed.

At deception, he means. Perhaps I am better than some, but every woman has a great deal of experience presenting herself as someone other than who she is, since no girl is ever everything the world wants her to be.

At Red Cliffs, two hundred and fifty years ago, Cao Cao had four times as many soldiers as his opponents did, yet they defeated him, killing a hundred thousand of his men in a single decisive battle. What if I were one of the hundred thousand caught in that turning tide? To have no room to maneuver, all escape routes cut off, and only a sword against a forest of spears? I have promised everyone at home that I will return safe and sound. How do I do that? How do I take charge of my fate when all around me, men have submitted to theirs?

I straightened my room, cleaned the living room, did laundry, listened to so many podcasts, and got some schoolwork done, but I’m still bored and I found myself thinking in circles about different ways to hang shelves
And we didn’t even get any snow. We just got a bit of slush, for which I’d like to lodge a formal complaint

“Pink”ing of You
Whether or not you have someone to cuddle up with this Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate love! Romance is not something I read a lot of because in my opinion a lot of it tends to be trite or overdone, these titles are not like that! I have read all of these except Honey Girl by Morgan Rogers (because it’s not out yet). Personally I found all of these to be representations of non-dopey love. Not that dopey romances are bad but they just aren’t for me!
     A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow by Laura Taylor Namey
     The Magnolia Sword by Sherry Thomas
     Giant Days Volume 4 by John Allison
     Something New by Lucy Knisley
     The Surprising Power of a Good Dumpling by Wai Chim
     Honey Girl by Morgan Rogers
Roses are red, These books are too, Here’s Some Novels that had me thinking of you…
     Tiny Imperfections by Alli Frank
     Fangs by Sarah Anderson
     Pride. Prejudice, and Other Flavors by Sonali Dev
What are you all reading this Valentine’s Day? Is anyone reading an anti-romance right now? Share some titles!
