Hey Kitty and Larissa! If you were stranded on Mars and could only have one book to read, what would it be?

LARISSA: The Princess Bride by William Goldman for sheer comfort reading/to maintain my grip on reality.


What's your fandom?

KITTY: This is tricky!

LARISSA: I feel like I don’t have one! Or just one. Hm…

KITTY: Hmmm.

LARISSA: People solving mysteries and getting in wisecracks.

KITTY: Yep, same! And badass children that save the day.

LARISSA: Our fandoms are tropes.

KITTY: I blame Home Alone entirely.

If you were a Quirk book (not your own), which one would you be?

KITTY: Paperback Crush is basically the inside of my brain. 

LARISSA: There’s an old one I read a lot in high school called the Action Heroine’s Handbook that I loved. It had on advice on how to pull quick changes and defeat bad guys, basically a little bit of everything to get by and get shit done!
