I decided to try something a little different for this Point/Counterpoint rather than spotlighting a direct argument.
Way back in 2003, the Metrokitty had a post about a narrative formula she calls “You Touched My Stuff!
In 2007, livejournalist Kadymae has used Kitty’s concept to examine the first storyarc of American Virgin.
So, I’ve been reading (and enjoying) American Virgin, and while I was making a post to one of STs lists, it dawned on me that the first story arc of the book is “you touched my stuff” if you put “the whole kettle of fish in a nutshell”.But it doesn’t feel like a typical “you touched my stuff” story to me. It’s not making me all eye-rolly and annoyed.
It’s an interesting read.
