WHAT ABOUT THE FOUNTAINHEAD.
YOUR NAME IS AN ETERNAL MONUMENT TO ELLSWORTH'S PARENTS' PECULIAR TASTE IN NOMENCLATURE.

OH.

...FUCK.

IF IT'S ANY CONSOLATION, I CONSIDERED PUTTING "HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY" AS A FANDOM, BUT DECIDED IT WAS TOO PRETENTIOUS AND WOULDN'T WIN ME ANY LOVE. THAT'S EXACTLY THE KIND OF THING DAGNY TAGGART AND HOWARD ROARK WOULDN'T DO.

REALLY, NOW.
"ELLSWORTH" IS A VERY PRETENTIOUS NAME.
PRETENTIOUSNESS RUNS THROUGH THINE VEINS, AND IF YOU WANT TO BE EXACTLY LIKE HIM, YOU'LL HAVE TO BE AS PRETENTIOUS AS POSSIBLE.

YES. REALLY.
THAT'S TRUE, BUT I DOUBT ANYONE ELSE WOULD HAVE FIGURED IT OUT.
OHOHO, "THINE"? NOTHING IS MORE PRETENTIOUS THAN SHAKESPEARE, YOU KNOW. VERY WELL. I SHALL ACCEPT MY DESTINY AND BECOME THE PRETENTIOUS BASTARD I WAS MEANT TO BE. ART THOU SATISFIED NOW, FA?

ARE YOU KIDDING. BEFORE I EVEN READ THE FOUNTAINHEAD, I ALREADY KNEW THAT WHICHEVER CHARACTER YOU NAMED YOURSELF AFTER WAS SOME PRETENTIOUS BASTARD.
SHAKESPEARE? I KNOWETH NOT WHAT THOUST SPEAKTEH OF. VERILY, I ART PLEASED. THERE SHALT BE NO THUNDERTHIGHS.

OH THOU~
BE BOTH. YOU KIND OF ARE. 8| FACE IT, RAND SURE COMES UP WITH ECCENTRIC NAMES THAT JUST SCREAM OF "NOT REAL".
WE DOTH NOT HATH A CONTRACT. THOU DOST NOT USETH THE MEDIEVAL LANGUAGE PROPERLY. HATH, NOT "HAVE".

CONSIDER IT DONE. PFFT. NO KIDDING. DAGNY TAGGART? HANK REARDEN? ELLSWORTH MONKTON TOOHEY? GAIL WYNAND? THE GOOD WOMAN, FASCINATING GENIUS THOUGH SHE WAS, WAS CLEARLY OUT OF HER MIND. :|
VERILY, I'M TOO MUCH OF A RENAISSANCE MAN TO USE SUCH VULGARITIES. OR SOMETHING.

VERILY, IT DOTH.
Don't worry. It will make you a little more ambigious. DON'T FORGET THE MASOCHISTIC SEXUAL RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THESE PEOPLE WITH THE STRANGE NAMES. I SWEAR, MY MIND PRETTY MUCH LEFT ME WHEN I SAW "ELLSWORTH MONKTON TOOHEY" AND "LANCELOT CLOKEY". JOHN GALT HAS GOT TO BE THE MOST NORMAL NAME SHE'S EVER CREATED. EVEN MIKE'S REAL NAME WAS LIKE, JONATHAN XAVIER DONNIGAN.
"RENAISSANCE MAN"? PFFFT. STOPETH KIDDING THYSELF, ELLSWORTH. IT PROVETH TOO AMUSING.

COOL BEANS.
Good! I could really use it. WITH NAMES LIKE THAT, I STILL CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHY I TAKE MS. RAND SO SERIOUSLY. WAIT. THAT'S A LIE: I DON'T TAKE HER SERIOUSLY AT ALL.
SAY WHAT THY WILL, FA, BUT THOU KNOWEST IT TO BE TRUE.

Y U TAKE DAT FROM ME.
Of course, you'll never be too ambigious for me. OH, DON'T FORGET FRANCISCO D'ANCONIA OR ELLIS WYATT. GEORGIA HAD A GOVERNOR NAMED ELLIS... BACK IN 1930. AND EVEN THEN, HE WAS ABOUT 80 YEARS OLD OR SOMETHING.
YEAH, I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M GETTING OUT OF THESE BOOKS EITHER. IT'S PROBABLY MAKING ME MORE OF A PRETENTIOUS INDIVIDUAL THAT REFUSES TO ACKNOWLEDGE POPULAR TRENDS.

I KNOWETH MANY THINGS, ELLSWORTH, AND THOUST NOT BEING A RENAISSANCE MAN IS ONETH OF THEM.

THOU MUST SPEAK PROPERLY IF THOU WISHETH ME TO UNDERSTAND.
But that's just because we're united in our bastardry. UGH, DON'T REMIND ME. TO BE FAIR, "AYN RAND" ITSELF IS A PRETTY MADE-UP NAME.
THE FOUNTAINHEAD HAD A PRETTY HUGE INFLUENCE ON MY IDEOLOGY LAST YEAR, BUT ONLY BECAUSE I DISAGREED WITH ALMOST EVERYTHING ROARK STOOD FOR. YOU'D THINK I'D HAVE NO MOTIVATION TO READ ATLAS SHRUGGED, IF ONLY BECAUSE I DISAGREED WITH RAND ON SO MUCH. OH WELL!

THOU LIETH. I DOTH BE AS MUCH A RENAISSANCE MAN AS A BASTARD. I THINK. BUT WHAT OF THOU, FA? THOU DOTH BE NOTHING~

SHUT THINE FOCKING MOUTH OR REMOVE THYSELF.
United? HAHAHA. Isn't she Russian or something, though? THERE'S A RUSSIAN GUY IN MY CLASS AND HIS NAME IS OR. NO, REALLY.
BUT THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE LIKE TOOHEY IN ATLAS SHRUGGED. EXCEPT THEY'RE NOT AS CLEVER AS HIM. I'M PRETTY MUCH IN BETWEEN INDIVIDUALISM AND COLLECTIVISM. THOUGH THAT'S ONLY BECAUSE I ATTACK ANYONE WHO TRIES TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO. /smacked

"THOU DOTH BE NOTHING"? THAT MAKETH NO SENSE. AND VERILY, I ART MANY THINGS, BUT MY LIST IS QUITETH LONG. TOO LONG FOR THIS THREADETH.

THOU HAST QUITE THE TEMPER. THOU SHOULDST WATCH THY TONGUE.
Well, at least we're open about it. MAYBE? STILL, THAT'S NO EXCUSE FOR MAKING RIDICULOUS NAMES.
I KNOW, RIGHT? TOOHEY ACTUALLY KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING, AND THAT'S WHY I LOVE HIM~ I'VE BEEN BECOMING LESS OF A RADICAL COLLECTIVIST AS OF LATE, BUT THAT'S MOSTLY BECAUSE PEOPLE WOULD BE COMPLETELY UNMOTIVATED IN A PURELY-COLLECTIVIST WORLD. THE KEY IS TO PUT THE INDIVIDUALS IN THE UNWITTING SERVICE OF THE COLLECTIVE. AM I ELLSWORTH TOOHEY YET?

'TIS BETTER TO BE A RENAISSANCE MAN THAN NOTHING AT ALL. VERILY, THOU ART DELUSIONAL. ...I DOTH NOT KNOW WHERE I DOTH BE GOING WITH THIS. THOU MAY DECIPHER IT FOR THYSELF. /SMACKETH

United. PFFFT. BEING GIVEN A RIDICULOUS NAME COULD POSSIBLY INFLUENCE GIVING FICTIONAL CHARACTERS RIDICULOUS NAMES.
NO, THOU ART NOT. TRIETH HARDER.

I ART NOT "NOTHING AT ALL". I HATH MANY TITLES. VERILY, THOUST DOST NOT KNOWETH WHERE THOUST IS GOING WITH THINE MEDIEVAL TONGUE... SO THOUST MUST READETH MORE.

VERILY, THY WIT IS AS SHARP AS AS A PIN-CUSHION.
I stand corrected! Sheesh. I GUESS IT DID IN THIS CASE. ...UNFORTUNATELY, HER CRAZY NAME DOESN'T EXPLAIN WHY SHE PROJECTED HER OWN MASOCHISM ONTO ALL OF HER FEMALE CHARACTERS.
SOMEDAY. SOMEDAY!

TITLES? HA! FORGIVETH ME, BUT I DOTH FIND YOUR PRETENTIOUSNESS LAUGHABLE. APPARENTLY SO: MY RENAISSANCE ATTITUDE IS UNACCUSTOMED TO USING SUCH ARCHAIC SPEECH. I AM SURE THOU SHALT FORGIVE ME, ANCIENT BASTARD THOUGH THOU ART.

UNTIL THEN, YOU'RE ELSIE.

I INQUIRETH WHAT THOUST FINDETH SO AMUSING. "ARCHAIC"?! THOUST ART AN OFFENDING, VILE CREATURE! NEVERTHELESS, I SHALT VERILY FORGIVE THEE. I PITY THINE PATHETIC NAME.

That's ELLSWORTH, you devious bastard! TRUE SAY, TRUE SAY. LET'S JUST PRETEND WE NEVER NOTICED THAT SHE WAS A MASOCHIST TO BEGIN WITH.
IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE I COME UP WITH A HUMILIATING NICKNAME FOR YOU. THE TABLES SHALL BE TURNED!

NOT A ONE WOULD BELIEVE THAT THOU VERILY POSSESSED TITLES HIGH AND VARIED. THOU ART ARCHAIC! THOU TAKETH A DEGREE OF PRIDE FROM IT. STILL, I SHALT ACCEPT THY PITY, IF IT STAVES OFF THE ELIMINATION OF OUR TRUCE.

I HATH MANY INSULTING METAPHORS. DON'T TRIETH ME.
Yeah, right, Elsie. I DON'T THINK YOU CAN. MY FRIEND SAW ONE PARAGRAPH AND SHE'S LIKE, "IS THIS AUTHOR A MASOCHIST?"
HOW CAN YOU MAKE A SHORTER NICKNAME FROM "FA"? IT'S ONLY TWO LETTERS. AND IF YOU MAKE A LONGER NICKNAME, I SHALL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO LAUGH AT YOU.

I NEVER PROCLAIMED THATETH I POSSESSED TITLES OF PRESTIGE. VARIED, AYE, BUT NOT HIGH. TRUE, I ART ARCHAIC. BUT NOT ANCIENT.
HM, OUR TRUCETH? AYE, I WAS CONTEMPLATING THINE ABSOLUTE HORROR... LADY [livejournal.com profile] mulspar HATH VERILY PREPARED AN ICON POST OF THUNDERTHIGHS FOR ME. THE URGE TO USETH THUNDERTHIGHS GROWETH WITH EVERY PASSING DAY.

Tsk. Some people never learn. THAT MAKES ME RIDICULOUSLY SAD. I GUESS THERE'S NO WAY AROUND IT. OH, THE TRAUMA.
I'LL FIGURE SOMETHING OUT. JUST WATCH ME. OH, AND ON AN UNRELATED NOTE, I'M STARTING TO THINK THAT YOU ARE MY ARCH-RIVAL AS WELL AS MY BOT3FF. WHAT SAY YOU?

'TWAS IMPLICIT IN THY STATEMENT. THOU ART AS ANCIENT AS THOU ART ARCHAIC.
BUT WHAT OF THE ICONS OF GREAT SEXINESS? VERILY, THOU CANST NOT PRETEND THEY DOTH NOT EXIST! REMEMBER IF YOU WILL THE WONDERS OF CECILE/SCHNEIZEL/KANON. NO MORTAL COULD RESIST SUCH ALLURE.

BRINGETH IT ON, THOU CAN.
I'm one of them. Haha! IT'S EVEN MORE OBVIOUS THAN THE LENGTHS OF HER BOOKS.
I SAY THAT THIS IS BECOMING A MASOCHISTIC RANDIAN RELATIONSHIP AND THAT I THINK WE SHOULD TAKE DRASTIC MEASURES BEFORE WE BECOME THE EMBODIMENT OF HER HOPES AND DREAMS.

ART THOU FAMILIAR WITH PHAROAH TUTENKAHMEN? VERILY, HE WAS A POOR RULER.
TRUE, NO MORTAL CAN RESIST SUCH ALLURE. BUT WHEN THUNDERTHIGHS ENTERS THINE LIFE, THINGS CHANGETH. THE URGE TO TERRIFY THINE MASSES GROWS. THE GRATIFICATION IS GREATER THAN THINE'S SEXY ICONS. SURELY THOUST CAN UNDERSTAND.

Faaaa. Faaaaaaa. FAAAAAAAAA. You're doing just what Ayn Rand wants you to do! You're playing into her hands! AND THAT IS SAYING SOMETHING. IT'S ALSO ABSURDLY SAD.
OH SWEET MOTHER OF SCHNEIZEL, YOU'RE RIGHT. WHAT CAN WE DO TO STOP IT?

VERILY. PRAY TELL, WHAT WAS THY RELATIONSHIP TO THE PHARAOH?
SO THOU DOTH BE TEMPTED TO ABANDON THE GLORY AND THE DREAM OF SEXY ICONS FOR THE SHORT-TERM THRILL OF POWER. VERILY, THOU ART BECOMING MORE OF AYN RAND'S HERO WITH EVERY PASSING DAY.

FOR ONE AS DULL AS PETER KEATING, THOU ART RATHER AMUSING I DARESAY.
But I don't think of you. IF IT'S ENOUGH FOR THE IDIOTS AT MY SCHOOL TO RECOGNIZE, THEN IT'S PRETTY DAMN OBVIOUS.
WE EITHER STOP BEING BOT3FF'S OR BE NICE TO EACH OTHER. IT'S HORRIFYING EITHER WAY, REALLY.

ADVISOR. I ADVISED HE BUILDETH A PYRAMID FOR IT WOULD BRINGETH HIM FAME. IT WAS A JOKE, UNTIL MY PREDICTIONS BECAMETH TRUE.
THE TERROR OF THUNDERTHIGHS IS NO SHORT-TERM THRILL, ELSIE. CONTRARIWISE, TO THOUST IT ART LONG-TERM.

THOU THINKEST I DOTH BE LESS DULL THAN TOOHEY, THEN?
Oh, ouch. Words hurt, Fa. NO KIDDING. I ALWAYS KNEW RAND FAILED AT SUBTLETY, BUT THIS IS A NEW LOW.
IF WE WERE NICE TO EACH OTHER, WE'D STOP BEING BASTARDS; IF WE CEASED TO BE BOT3FFS, WE'D NEVER HAVE FUN AGAIN. I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M SAYING THIS, BUT I THINK OUR ONLY CHOICE IS TO BE DRAGGED, KICKING AND SCREAMING, INTO AYN RAND'S VISION OF THE FUTURE.

HOW SNEAKY OF THOU. VERILY, THOU WERT A BASTARD EVEN IN THE AGE OF THE PHARAOHS.
AND YET, IT CANNOT HOLD A CANDLE TO THE MIGHT OF SEXY ICONS. TO PARAPHRASE THE GREAT BASTARD AND RENAISSANCE MAN NICCOLO MACHIAVELLI, 'TIS SAFEST TO BE FEARED AND LOVED IN EQUAL MEASURE.

DAMN HER. WHY DID SHE HAVE TO MAKE HER VISION OF THE FUTURE SO ENTERTAINING.

MY ROOTS GROWETH DEEP. I PLACED AN ASP INTO CLEOPATRA'S HANDS.
BUT YOU'LL ALWAYS LOVE ME IN YOUR OWN, MASOCHISTIC WAY. AND YOU'LL ALWAYS FEAR ME FOR THUNDERTHIGHS. GOD DAMN IT, MACHIAVELLI WAS A RANDIST TOO. WE'VE BEEN HAD!
