This is a personal blog. I'm a fan of Whedon, the Kripkeeper, RTD, and Gaiman. I'm a would-be librarian who watches too much tv and loves music. Ask me anything.

I walked 500 miles on October 30, 2011

"I was walking to get pizza and a chasm opened up in the earth and I fell in and now I am at the bottom of this hole, screaming for help. And along comes you. Now, maybe you just keep walking. You know, there’s a strange guy screaming from the centre of the earth, it’s perhaps best to ignore him. But let’s say that you don’t. Let’s say that you stop. The sensible thing to do in this situation is to call down to me and say, ‘I am going to look for a ladder. I will be right back.’ But you don’t do that. Instead you sit down at the edge of this abyss and then you push yourself forward and jump. And when you land at the bottom of the hole and dust yourself off, I’m like, ‘What the hell are you doing? Now there are two of us in this hole?’ And you look at me and say, ‘Well, yeah, but now I’m highly motivated to get you out.’
This is what I love about novels - both reading them and writing them. They jump into the abyss, to be with you where you are."  - John Green,¬†An Evening of Awesome at Carnegie Hall Jan 15,2013
