I have been told this before.

The wondrous Miss csecooney reminded me of this!

Two days ago. I am on the bus. I am reading Charles de Lint's Muse and Reverie. I am wearing my fabulous charcoal-and-black coat that looks like I am hiding in a beautiful sofa (also it has a black fake-fur collar and a big purple flower pin on the lapel). I am wearing a fake-flower clip in my hair that is additionally festooned with a feather, a bit of tulle, and old jewelry bits. My hair is loose, besides that.

I notice someone Watching Me.

I look up.

The woman smiles, nods, points at the book, and says "You look like one of his characters."

I say "Thank you!!", and she smiles again and gets off the bus.

Ah, I miss all my fictional Newford friends! (And all my further-away yet rather more substantial friends, too, who are LIKE my fictional Newford friends).

And here I've been pining for something new to read. Better to go back to the old friends, sez I.

Although I should check out this Seanan McGuire lady, since everyone's talking about her.

I am decidedly meh if not feh on her, which makes me a heretic in this crowd. But.

Definitely CdL, and definitely Widdershins if you've not yet read it!

Really? Meh? SPEAK! For I have only heard the OTHER side of things, which always makes me a leeeeetle dubious. For which I feel the WEIGHT of GUILT of course. Naturally. But DO send me an email or post about it or something?

Sweet moment. I love his characters...

You know, I've never thought of it that way, but it's completely true. :)

I see it in you. It doesn't show as much for me. :(

Based on that description, I would have to agree!
