I am such a dork. While I’m reading Sabriel, this epic tale of magic and inheritance and butt-kicking, what I really am craving more of is the heroine’s adventures when she was a schoolgirl

  • Sabriel and her friends, Ellimere and Sulyn, smuggling in corny or risque romance novels, alternately giggling, blushing, and wondering how much of that shit is accurate
  • Sabriel talking to little first-formers, comforting them as they wake up from nightmares, and telling them there isn’t anything to be scared of at Wyverly
  • Going into town, going to the movies, eyeing cute guys, wondering if guys are that cute on the other side of the Wall
  • Experimental boozing and kissing
  • Quiet corners of the campus that belong to Sulyn, Ellimere, and Sabriel and them alone
  • Thinking about university, about southern Ancelstierre, about the future
  • Those tiny rebellions against uniform regulations, which Sabriel reluctantly abandons once she’s made a Prefect
  • Music lessons, magic lessons, sighing over extremely boring old manuscripts of long lost battles
  • Ellimere and Sulyn meeting Sabriel the morning that she leaves, and all three of them are holding back their tears because they know the odds of Sabriel coming back are slim, and even if she does, she won’t be the same
  • Sulyn wants to give Sabriel something to remember them by, but she won’t (can’t) accept anything, because all that they have is made in factories (even paper and lockets) and it’ll fall apart north of the Wall and Sabriel would rather have nothing but her memories
  • Ellimere straightens her shoulders, and like a true lady of Wyverly, gravely tells Sabriel she’s going to be a fine fighter and she’s going to be all right, and Sabriel just nods, not trusting herself to speak
  • Sulyn runs to her room and brings Sabriel the last of the toffee that they made in the kitchen, wrapped in a napkin and she says “Please just take it”
  • Final, desperate hugs before Sabriel goes downstairs
  • Sabriel remembering as she goes North

all-girl’s school friendship stories are really important to me

One thing that struck me about the Abhorsen series was the sexual freedom and lack of gender roles in Old Kingdom. It’s unique in that, instead of someone having to overcome them, they just aren’t a thing, which I really like. Just casually nobody seems to have to do anything because they are…

The Planned Parenthood tumblr has probably been waiting a very long time to use that gif.
