Etymology: Adora
As I’m sure you’ve gathered, the vast majority of names in She-Ra are like, 80s toy names. However, as you may have gathered, I am a huge nerd that loves etymology, and so I’m going to subject you all to my notes. I imagine most of these will be in batches, but Adora is… a special case, in that her name is kind of complicated and I maybe went a little overboard.

And Anakin smiles. Not a smile like the Emperor’s. Or a crazed grin like Darth Maul’s. Not even a smirk like Anakin might have shown Ahsoka back in his Jedi days.
But a real smile. The smile that only Padmé ever saw.

"How do you call among you the little mouse, the mouse that jumps?" Paul asked, remembering the pop-hop of motion at Tuono Basin. He illustrated with one hand. A chuckle sounded through the troop. "We call that one Muad'Dib," Stilgar said.

Anna Campbell, After Anne Carson, After Sappho, 2015
This pick – or plectrum, which the lyric poet Sappho is credited with inventing – is foil-stamped with a fragment of Anne Carson’s translation of Sappho’s Fragment 31, also known as the Poem of Jealousy, sourced from If Not Winter: Fragments of Sappho (Vintage, 2003).  Each pick is set into a laser-cut mount that still bears the tendriled smoke patterns of its production, pointing back to the burning energy that fueled the poem.

“She climbed into my bed. I let her sleep hot and damp against my spine. All night she rocked, she turned, she poked her spastic elbows into my calves and slurred her broken noises in the dark. All the old fans went round in clicks those summer nights—and she rolled in bed and kicked me in the head and I was happy. No words, no tricks, I just didn’t love my loneliness. My mind felt cooler with her there.”
— Mary Szybist, from Incarnadine: Poems
