True Irony is Mythical Royalty

Goddammit Arthur Pendragon. Can’t you just have one standard myth to your name, and be done?

You’d really make my life sooo much simpler.

True Irony Is A Literary Rant

Put it like this:

The publication of “Lord of the Rings” was delayed several times, pretty much to the point of desperation.

“Twilight” was sold for an unusually large sum for a first novel.

One is the second best selling novel ever written.

The latter has no depth, no character growth, and has a rather anticlimactic ending.

Tolkien created people, languages, and a world.

Meyer took a terrifying creature and covered it in glitter.

So no, publishers and editors are NOT gods.

I’m just saying.
