Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.

Is Bathsheba the original incarnation of the Mary Sue? I mean this only slightly jokingly, since she seems to be perfection herself. All the men are in love with her. Her skin is luminous, her hair is bouncy, glossy and luxurious. Her face is as perfect as the summer dawn, her figure nearly as pleasing as her bank account.
