An Ever-Fixed Mark - Chapter 1 - AMarguerite - Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen [Archive of Our Own]
One would think that having the name of one's soulmate appear on one's wrist on one's sixteenth birthday would make matrimony much less complicated. It mostly does not. And not at all for Miss Elizabeth Bennet of Longbourne.

>> LOVE THIS! Lots of interesting concepts, excellent charactisation, basically I think I'll be re-reading this for years.
(A deconstruction of the "soulmate identifying mark" trope, using "Pride and Prejudice." Trigger warnings in the tags.)

New Sentences: From ‘Winners Take All,’ by Anand Giridharadas
Anand Giridharadas points to one of America’s central mythologies: We are often encouraged to see business as a kind of master key to the universe. Its tools and skills, we are led to believe, are magically transferable to every other arena of life. We allow business leaders to make or influence our most crucial public decisions: transit, taxation, education, immigration, health care, public safety, city planning and on and on. And we are expected to listen, with a straight face, when candidates proclaim that government itself should be run like a business.Business is as specialized as any other discipline: Its logic and tools are specific to its own needs, just like the logic and tools of library science, pottery, molecular biology, surfing and forestry. Success in one field does not equate to success in any other. Our elevation of business over all other disciplines is pure American hoodoo — a bubbling witches’ brew of bootstraps and sparrows and rags and riches and invisible-finger bones.

She's not buying a doll, she's adopting a space baby — and choosing the store over the internet - Los Angeles Times
She's not buying a doll, she's adopting a space baby — and choosing the store over the internet
Donald D. White. Los Angeles Times. December 1, 2018

. . . . .

As Claire Talerico videotaped her daughter Mia finalizing baby adoption paperwork with a nurse, two things stood out.

For one thing, Mia is just 10 years old. For another, Mia’s baby resembled a pink lacrosse ball with a tiny body attached.

This wasn’t a real adoption. The fictional nurse was an employee of Distroller World, a boutique Mexican toy chain that is about to open its third U.S. store, in Glendale.

“There are no other toys like them,” Mia said of the 12 Distroller babies she has adopted. “At home, we made them a nursery, then I built a little school for them. We even make up voices for them.”

Distroller World is an elaborate example of experience-based retail — where shoppers get to do something rather than just buy something. It’s a style that merchants increasingly are trying out to recapture business lost to the internet.
. . . . .

But experience retail can have drawbacks. It may involve more training — and possibly bigger paychecks — for employees who must then act out the roles they play well enough for an enjoyable consumer experience.

Recruiting, training and retaining employees who can fulfill this kind of role-playing “within the razor-thin margins of retailing will be difficult,” said Denise Lee Yohn, a branding expert and author of “Fusion: How Integrating Brand and Culture Powers the World's Greatest Companies.”

And it isn’t just one story that has to be mastered and presented; if the experience doesn’t evolve with new elements and events, it will quickly grow stale and lose its appeal, experts said.

“You have to constantly freshen things up,” Silver said. “It can’t be the same old, same old, or a child will go two or three times and get bored.”
