[meta - Little Women]
I think that all four girls are in a double bind. They are raised to be 'not like other girls', but the very same people who raised them expect them to function socially like other girls. The result is that they variously fall too much to one side or the other and suffer for it. The happy ending for Meg, Jo, and Amy is when they learn to walk the tightrope in the middle.

[fic - Dragaera] Aerich Makes a Suggestion by penny_riled
A missing scene set sometime during _The Phoenix Guards_, but originally inspired by a single line in _Sethra Lavode_. It didn't look like anyone else was going to write it, so I decided to do it myself.

Idra's face was a picture of proud delight as he crouched besides Maia. 'This one, cousin,' he started, pointing at one of the water-weeds, pausing to make sure Maia knew which he meant. 'That's Ulva, the first thing I introduced, oh, five months ago. And this one is Dasya–'

[fic - Bomb Girls] If I should learn, in some quite casual way
Kate buys a house.

It seems so simple, put like that. Four words that don’t account for the great and heavy weight of countless hours on the factory floor and still more spent singing in nightclubs, the pennies saved, the heart-rending clarity in that moment she decided she would, when Gladys had said, “A house. Betts was saving up for a house. Remember?”

[meta - Jane Austen] Rediscovering Mansfield Park
However, I read it mostly to adequately argue (if only in my head) with the people who insist that it’s the anti-Pride and Prejudice. The idea is that Austen was somehow frightened or appalled or disturbed by what she’d created in Pride and Prejudice, so she went about undoing it, creating an anti-Elizabeth and anti-Darcy as heroine and hero, chastising high feminine spirits via Mary Crawford, and abandoning the possibility of change in a powerful man via Henry Crawford. Well, that has always seemed to be overlooking a few salient details, but still, I wanted to take a nice close look at it.

Who are some female inventors, scientists, athletes, artists, soldiers, etc. who deserve more recognition? Can be modern or historical.

Unfortunately for him, Artemis has other ideas. Even more unfortunately, Athena's roped in a stranger to help him solve it.

As they pull the threads, a sordid history begins to unravel...
