Anonymous asked: what is this thing you are reading about a girl in Leningrad? I read your answer to another question and I was very interested in it
oh sorry it’s the book Deathless by Catherynne M. Valente
whenever I feel sad I remind myself that the Once Upon A Time fandom took it upon themselves to vote Robert Carlyle the hottest guy on the show when the poll description had a little side note like ‘hey this dude exists’ and I laugh for roughly a hundred years

It stayed within her as it had always been, the architecture of her girlhood. The wood held the oils of her skin deep in its grain; the windows still bore the imprint - long gone, invisible - of her tiny nose. A ghost of the Marya without magic, the little girl who was not broken, not a soldier, not a wife. But Leningrad, Leningrad was a stranger. It did not even share a name with the city where she had been born.
"Ivanushka," she asked one night as the jingling street sounds played below the window. "Would you perform tasks for me, if I asked?"
"What do you mean?"
"Would you… get me a firebird’s feather, or fetch a ring from the bottom of the sea, or steal gold from a dragon?"
Ivan pursed his lips. “Those sorts of things are so old-fashioned, Masha. They are part of your old life, and the old life of Russia, too. We have no need of them now. The Revolution swept all the dark corners of the world away. Yes, remnants still lurk in the hinterlands - Koschei, a Gamayun or two. But they are irrelevant. The old world left its dirty, broken toys lying about. But soon enough we’ll have everything tidy. Besides, there are no firebirds in Leningrad.”
I highly recommend giving up music snobbery. It makes life 1000% more fun.
