THIS IS EXCELLENT except I have to disagree with one point: Jane Austen wouldn’t be hella annoying on social media - she’d just be trolling all the time.

Hemingway would also have some major MRA backers probably. He wouldn’t be one (he’d just be a regular misogynistic bastard) but his followers would be harassing anyone who called it out.

Faulkner has no use for twitter and his blog posts are interminable.

Robert Frost’s Instagram tho.

And Poe and Lovecraft trying to outdo each other with Two-Sentence Horror Stories.

And Elizabeth Bishop, Emily Dickinson, and Sylvia Plath deliberately trolling MRAs.

And Polidori would tag “@DevilEnglishman” in every. Single. Post, trying to start a twitter war in the hopes of gaining followers.

Okay okay so one time a few years ago, I read this graphic novel version of Dante’s Inferno online and it was good and all but the best part was that Virgil made the most ridiculous faces. Like, he would freak out every few pages, and we’re not talking minor anger here - I mean he would go full on hulk mode on Dante. So I took some screenshots and they’ve been saved on my computer all these years so I think it’s time

I have them saved in a folder called ‘Virgil freaking out’
