Jill: What are you reading?
Lill: Dresden Files.
Jill: What’s the wizard up to in this adventure?
Lill: Horror movie convention…bogey-monsters…murder…etc.
Jill: Has he gotten smacked around?
Jill: *sigh* Why is it that female preternatural protagonists seem to have little trouble getting some, while our Harry goes without?
Lill: ‘Cause they’re usually fighters, hunters or something with superpowers; fit; beautiful; clothed in leather and assorted weaponry, and surrounded by men who worship them.
Jill: That and they don’t have to sleep with Harry Dresden.
Lill: Hmph, I’d take the wizard over your Weres and vamps any day.
Jill: *raises eyebrows* What about ‘cowboy Weres’…eh? eh?
Lill: *sigh* Whatever the hell you’re reading these days Jill better be based on a dare…
