GONERIL: okay well! if you’re going to go you should probably start going can’t get to France if you never leave REGAN: you know I can’t curtsy because of that hip thing from last week but I can lift my skirts a little GONERIL: and I would lift my skirts a little in a gesture of fond farewell
Oh nice... I am now in an alternate dimension where The Toast still exists! Please continue this simulation, thank you.
Okay brilliant of course but is there a textual basis for everyone deciding Goneril is a brunette and Regan is a redhead? I agree it FEELS correct.
I cannot. I CANNOT get enough of you writing catty bitchiness. When it's historically beloved literature that's great, you're basically doing what those "Shakespeare in SMS Teenz language" people only wish they could do, but I'll take it in any context. The Dante's Inferno stuff over at The Stopgap dabbles here too from time to time -- my partner died laughing in Canto I when Virgil verbally put Dante in the garbage.
It's so much fun to read, please make as many excuses as you want to in order to write more of it.
