I'm wondering, is there anything resembling Magical Girls in old Fairy/Folk Tales? I'm writing a book that's basically Fairy Tales with Magical Girls, and Magical Girl shows always seem to have a thing for Fairy Tales. Aside from some early examples trying to capitalise on the popularity of Bewitched, It seems like the whole magical girl thing is very influenced by fairy tales, with the whole magical transformation trope etc. and examples of magic wielding princesses being common throughout the likes of 1001 Nights. It doesn't have to be a direct proxy but... anything from Folktales or Literary Fairytales that involves magical female warriors that pref. transform somehow... are there any examples of this?

Why does life shame you by giving you the desire for love and affection of others ? It would be a evolutionary trait to have the motion of not feeling for another and keeping to the self for as much as you prolonged to

If somebody writes fiction that is not accessible to the common person or average reader, then that writing is inferior. Tell me why I'm wrong?

We should create a huge /lit/core chart, the current chart is way too small. We could go through some of the existing sub charts and lists, pick out the best books and someone could make a massive fucking chart with all of the /lit/core books. What books shall go on said chart?

How famous this guy actually is ? As a non American guy it's pretty difficult to understand if he is actually a thing in the US or if he's just some random author /lit/ decided to make fun of.

A slight dumb-dumb? 4 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So I've just finished Gardens of the Moon: Malazan Book of the Fallen, book 1. And right before finishing it, I bought volume 2. Now that I've started Volume 2, it seems as though it starts with a bit out in book 1. So my question is this: Did I just do a dumb-dumb, and fail to understand that Book 1 covers both Vol.1 and Vol.2?

Just finished reading Lolita, and I'm still not sure what to think of it. I did not expect that ending at all, not in a million years, instead I had thought H would kill Lol in some dramatic fashion. So considering that though, the book is meant to be a testament to the power of language, right? I'm not a particularly insightful reader, but the ending did seem as if it were written ironically, considering the way H lulls the reader in with his elegant wordplay, Quilty uses it to his own ends by distracting H and also luring Lolita. Apparently there was also meant to be a theme of the clash between American and European culture, and whilst that was pretty obvious in Part 1, if it was still carrying on in P2 it went completely over my head. Really enjoyed Lolita though and I'm planning on reading Pale Fire next, and possibly some more Nabokov books. Pic vaguely related

Hello /lit/ I happen to have a lot of spare time on my hands and i decided id try creative writing again. Please let me know what you think of these two paragraphs i just wrote which took roughly an hour and half. Side note, im pretty high "Other than the popping and crackling sounds of the cedar logs burning in the campfire, the woods remained eerily silent. The full moon shone bright in the clear night sky, yet where the campfire's light faded an impenetrable blackness remained, inching closer and closer. Two stood around the fire, waiting, both well aware of their queer surroundings, yet unaware of the fog that began to creep through the trees. Ser Tikes, a renowned young man of the house Wulford and widely believed to be the most auspicious knight of his generation, attempted to break the silence. “I can't believe we're here, and... and this is actually happening. Feels quite like a dream.” The constable did not break his trance-like stare into the flames, for the time would soon come and the only thing Gaerold was focused on was being vigilant. Still he felt he needed to respond to Tikes, it was afterall his doing that they had come this far in a quest that would certainly result had the wrong people found out of what the entailments of this quest were."

I've read most of the sticky's Depressing Literature Guide and now I'm sick of desperate and weak characters. I want a good book with a strong character, someone who keeps his mind in the right place. I'm not after an action book, I just want a strong character with a sense of purpose for a change.

The introduction of the MC of a space opera I've been writing while completely stoned. What do you think? (Pitch:Star Trek The Original Series if Kirk was a complete sciopath) The UES Warship Ver 9 Distant. It's the ninth incarnation of the Ver class warships, the first military vessels used by mankind outside of the earths atmosphere. The Original captain of the Distant, Johnathan. T Copernicus, was actually the first human being to make contact with a sentiant alien race. Unfortunately no one exactly knows what mankinds first words to the Mylamars were, as Captain Copernicus was quickly killed by alien microbes unfamilar to earth constitution. “But Captain Raul, isn't that complete bullshit.” Well it would be, unfortuantely, and I'm talking to you christains reading this, the human race was not created by god almighty, at least not directly. An ancient race, many scholars belive to be the grey's from old earth folklore, seeded all sorts of little experiments all over the galaxy. Every species we've found on every planet has shared a genetic link to some species we've found on eath. This unfortuantely causes our immune systems to be very comporable, causing pathogens to be easily carried between planets. And remember that because that's going to be very important later. Fortunately this has also caused, most, of the dominite races on any planets we've found to be compadable in...other ways. That's right, I'm talking about fucking. Imagine Shore leave, but you're in a boat that can be literally anywhere in the speed of light. Imagine getting some dangerous unprotected strange, and bouncing 2 lightyears out of town, with acesses to medical technology so good that it could probably let us live forever, if we really wanted to. I know, it's a bit of a cliché isn't it, the daring, dashing, just damn handsome space captian seducing green women and teaching them the ways of love. Well it's nothing like that, my color dujor has always been red. Telina, I picked her up at a slave bazaar on Io. She was so beautifle, and such a good deal. Yeah I bought her, so what. If you saw those hips you'd make the same decision. I Graduated the academy thanks to dedication, hard work, my excellent right corner in spaceball, and I was a legacy. Both from the first Hispanic president of the unated states of america, for which I'm named, first at least, and my father, The United Eath's current Chairmen of the Joint Cheifs Jarvier Denton. Oh, and I was also the Valedictorian. I actually minored in old earth history, and I always had an interest in the “meta-movement” that happened in literature in the early seconod millenium. Wink.
