Margaret Ghost
Whee, fun! There was a particularly loud electrical noise above our heads, and it was sometimes hard to see through the guy in front of me, but I can complain of nothing else. The fact that desireearmfeldt's part seemed to be largely based on her but turned up to eleven, combined with the guy playing Nathaniel Hawthorne looking to me just like how I imagine him makes, in retrospect, for a somewhat dreamlike scene. "So, I had this dream that I was in the 19th century, and at a salon with Emerson and Hawthorne and people. And Andrea was there too, and she kept arguing with them."

Do you think Haswthorne was that insufferable in Real Life?

I mean, his writing is pretty hard to take, but it turns out Margaret Fuller's writing is in the same irritatingly overblown mid-19th-century style, too. I've concluded I just don't like anyone who wrote in English in that period (on either side of the Atlantic).

Well, supposedly he was pretty catty about Margaret Fuller in his diary after she was dead. (But I haven't read it.)
