(Addendum:  All the kudos and death threats are really touching :D , BUT I feel the need to inform you that my only contribution to this masterpiece was to post it on tumblr. A friend sent it directly to me after finding it on another platform, I have no idea who the real author is. If this mad genius comes to tumblr one day, they can make themselve known :-)

Glad to see the fandom's portrayal of Don Quixote seems to be pretty spot-on with canon.

Aromantic and Asexual inspiration from Don Quixote
I never would have thought that I would find inspiration in a character from a book published in 1605. The majority of the book portrays Don Quixote as a satire of the romance-obsessed literature on knights at the time. We all know of the scene of the crazy old man that fights windmills because he thinks they are giants. But chapters 11-14 really show a more serious feminist side of the author, Miguel de Cervantes when a woman is accused of murder because she rejected a man's advances. Here are some quotes from Marcela:
“Heaven made me, as all of you say, so beautiful that you cannot resist my beauty and are compelled to love me, and because of the love you show me, you claim that I am obliged to love you in return. I know, with the natural understanding that God has given me, that everything beautiful is lovable, but I cannot grasp why, simply because it is loved, the thing loved for its beauty is obliged to love the one who loves it. Further, the lover of the beautiful thing might be ugly, and since ugliness is worthy of being avoided, it is absurd for anyone to say: ‘I love you because you are beautiful; you must love me even though I am ugly.’ But in the event the two are equally beautiful, it does not mean that their desires are necessarily equal, for not all beauties fall in love; some are a pleasure to the eye but do not surrender their will, because if all beauties loved and surrendered, there would be a whirl of confused and misled wills not knowing where they should stop, for since beautiful subjects are infinite, desires would have to be infinite, too (p. 98-99).”
“Until now heaven has not ordained that I love, and to think that I shall love of my own accord is to think the impossible. … Let this general discouragement serve for each of those who solicit me for his own advantage; let it be understood from this day forth that if anyone dies because of me, he does not die of jealousy or misfortune, because she who loves no one cannot make anyone jealous, and discouragement should not be taken for disdain (p. 100).”
Immoral Code by Lillian Clark is similarly inspiring. The acearo character Reese was slut shamed for rejecting a date's sexual advances. Despite being angry at the judgment that she experienced for not being attracted to sex and romance, she maintains how important it is to not care about other people's opinions.

books that will actually change your life
Tumblr media
i walk past a lot of 'books that will change your life' when i'm in bookshops, and they're all the same boring definitely-will-not change your life stuff.
how many times do people need to learn the same three things? dump your ego, be kind, and reconcile yourself with the past and your coming death. basic stuff.
so, this is my list of books that will actually change your life, books that provide a deep insight into something greater.
let's begin.
(in no particular order.)
.
.
.
.
'the divine comedy' - how may we be redeemed and what comes?
'don quixote' - what do we do with chivalry in an age past it?
'the canterbury tales' - how are we the same as those before?
'david copperfield' - what may we learn from life?
'barnaby rudge' - what happens when the linchpin loosens?
'crime and punishment' - how can we live if we are not honest?
'the idiot' - how can we be honest if we have not lived?
'the karamazov brothers' - how should we live?
'the count of monte cristo' - what, when father leaves?
'the sun also rises' - where do we go when we have nowhere?
'les miserables' - what do make of redemption?
'ulysses' - what do we not notice?
'moby-dick' - where does the torment of men lead?
i have decided to illustrate the reasons for reading these by the questions they can answer, these are not their only answers but these are what i believe is at the core.
