Our Four Foundresses


Velma Dinkley, The Questioner


Looking for clues to solve life's mysteries. Never going to give up her glasses.
Rhetorica, The Working Girl

Teaching the principles of sound argument and communication.
Francine Jones, The Mother

So ferociously protective of her own that she might allow herself to be duped by a scheming Time Lord if she believes it will protect her child from unknown alien horrors.
Dr. Girlfriend (aka Lady Au Pair, Queen Etherea, Dr. Mrs. The Monarch), The Lover/Wife

Power behind the throne and all that lot. Stands by her man and settles into one persona after trying several in her quest for wholeness. May have a few henchmen of her own.

There once was was a girl who was great,
Who had clearly studied her Blake,
Skimming through her Nine Nights,
Her wrongs and her rights,
Leaving me awed in her wake.

;)

Welcome to Idol!

LOL--I adore a good limerick! Blake is a fun guy, isn't he? I think of FZ as a text not unlike Joyce's Finnegan's Wake--one of those things that you read because you really want to understand the author. I love Joyce, but haven't attempted much of FW.

And good catch on the nights! ;-)

I always think the brunette in purple is Lois Lane.

You know, in some respect she is the Lois to the Monarch's anti-Superman.

Aren't we all? For a start on the latter, you might read this (http://www.the-spearhead.com/2009/10/09/the-war-on-science-fiction-and-marvin-minsky/) and then the serious pwnage in this response (http://whatever.scalzi.com/2009/10/13/a-boys-own-genre-or-not/).

And I must agree with your icon.

For what its worth, seeing Dr. Mrs. The Monarch as your icon got me totally amped about the season 4 debut this week. Can't. Wait.

Hi there! Awesome intro, I really like it!

I love The Prisoner, too! I have actually gone on a quest to Portmeirion to see the Village. It was awesome!
