The Dresden Files is unreadable because of how women are described

I got through 3 of the Dresden Files books before I had to put them down. The author just cannot keep from commenting on how sexy every single female character is and how chivalrous and misogynistic Harry is. An example from the book: "She pushed back her asphalt-colored hair with one hand and gave me a look of pure calculation. Then she simply crossed her legs, so that the cut of her dress left one pale leg bare to midthigh. A subtle motion of her back thrust out her young, firm breasts, so that their tips pressed visibly against the fabric. “Of course, Mr. Dresden. I’m sure we can do business.” The look she gave me was direct, sensual, and willing."

Every single woman is portrayed exactly like this and I think it represents the worst in Urban Fantasy.

Edit: For all the people saying she's a a supernatural fae or something this is Lydia from Grave Peril. She's a seer who gets possessed by the end of the book but during this she's a human.

LPT don't go for a 20 mile walk without prior experience....

So here it goes.

Me, F 19 UK. Started growing wisdom teeth and since I couldn't handle the pain anymore I asked the nhs to give me an appointment with a dentist since all in my area are booked.

And the appointment I got was 20 miles away from where I lived. In a different town.

So, genius me comes up with the idea to walk the 20 miles since Google said its only 6 hours and 20 minutes. First bad idea. Should've just taken the train.

So the day of the appointment (a couple of weeks ago), I wake up at 1am and prepare some food and drink for the walk. I head out at 2am and my appointment is at 10:10.

I told myself that 8 hours is more than enough (since I'm reletively fit. So it's pitch black and I head outside without my glasses. Second bad idea since I can't see anything without them, but I'm too lazy to go up and get em.

As I start its reletively OK, I'm walking through my town. It's quiet and dark. As I head outside the city area, it's just fields upon fields of crops. Beautiful night lights of the city and I took some pictures. Now as I walk further out, . On the third mistake, google in all its wisdom, tells me to walk alongside the highway....

So I'm walking 5/6 miles in 4/5am and the road is empty and I'm listening to contrapoints videos that I downloaded earlier. Good Times.

And as I approach my 10th mile 6am, I can feel the pain in my foot getting worse and walking on the grass on the side of the road is very much harder than walking on the road. And since cars started using the road I had to move to the grass. OOF!

So now I have a very sore foot and all the water I drank earlier is starting to signal its release.....try and hold it in but I fixed the problem later in my own way that I'm not gonna say on reddit.

Now on the 13th mile around 7am ish. Pain is spreading to the hips and I need some more snacks. And thankfully there's a beautiful village ahead and a corner shop/grocery shop that I spot from afar. I take some pics of the village and I go into the shop and I buy chocolates (good) and soda (4th mistake). So on my next break (I had been taking regular 5min breaks) I decided to have some soda, on an empty stomach ........oh, the pain in my tummy!!!! Despite that, I get up and walk since in this remote part of the country, I can't just call an uber and give up....I can only do that in the final town.

Around 15/16th mile and 8am ish, shit gets real! My whole body is aching and I'm starting to approach the outskirts of the other town and finally there are some proper side walks to walk on. But guess what, google fucks me again (5th fuck up) and this town has some of the longest and steepest hills ever. Like 2 miles long and all incline. My foot is giving up and I'm just pushing myself to get in town so I can call an uber.

So, it's the last two miles and its already 9:30 am. So I know I'm not gonna get my appointment. Sidenote: my phone is at 15%, down all the way from 100 at start. I'm just inching ahead at this point, and this is the 2mile incline hill. Life just fucks me harder and I need to pee again! (I blame the soda!) So now I'm getting into the main town and walking like a zombie....

So now I make a smart move and decide to go to the big morrisons (similar to walmart) at the end of this long and shitty Road. I only have to go straight, so no need for shitty google and I turn my phone off as well. (Another smart move)

Now (around 10am) as I inch closer to my prize, (the toilet) I can stand anymore cause of the pain. But thank god I find some benches along the road to rest and massage my legs.

Finally around 11am after 20 miles of walking, I see the morrisons logo!

YES!

The final few steps through the parking lot were the hardest! And I storm in and find the closest bathroom nearby. Sweet relief!

After that, I finally noticed that I'm getting very hungry! So I buy all the cake I want. (And a spoon). I start to devour the cake as I realise, One: this cake tastes amaizing! And 2: I didn't call an uber yet! (Very close major fuck up)

So I open my phone and 5%left......I quickly enter my home address into the app and get confirmation that the driver arrives in 8 min. But phone turns off as I almost read the name of the car and driver. I only managed to see the grey colour of the car....and now begins the most stressful 8 mins of my life as I wait in front of morrisons for a grey car with an uber logo......my phone is dead and if I miss this uber I'm very fucked! In a new town, can't walk at all and with no access to my phone for help, I'm done for!

Finally the car arrives! (it stopped in front of me) and I get in and relax. And on the way back, we travel the same route that I took and I get a second reminder of every single one of my fuckups. But hey, I atleast can brag that I once walked 20 miles at once!

When I got home, I took off everything and showered first. And enjoyed the rest of the cake ( this is a cake for 16 people!) and went to sleep. I couldn't walk properly for a few days and I had a mild fever. And the pain in the joints and muscles lasted for about a week. And the tooth pain went away anyways.....

Thanks for reading this despite my horrible storytelling.

TLDR: I overestimated my walking capability, got cocky (pun intended) and tried to walk 20 miles in 6 hours.....got fucked by google maps directions.... ended up spending ~9 hours and almost got stuck in a different town with no phone and no ability to move.

Walking 20 miles at once is a 0/10, wouldn't recommend.

Edit: this is what rip inbox feels like....I'm sorry but I don't think I can answer everyone's comments...

Edit 2: for the people asking why I didn't take my glasses, I should've clarified that I can still function fine without them. But its just nice to have them. And also I didn't want to wake up my roommate by constantly going in and out.

Edit 3: American English helps everyone understand what I'm talking about. And also I lived in America for a while so some of the words are still stuck in my head. And for anyone with doubt of my britishness u can go sod off.

How do you feel about ’how would you feel?’ posts being banned?

We’ve gotten a lot of feedback on this one. A lot of feedback. We’ve all seen the “how would you feel about ____” in which the OP is just posting what is considered a "shower thought" which is aimed to ask users to support a largely popular concept in a way that fits AskReddit’s rules. Interesting and engaging titles are always great but these posts don’t have much discussion value, which is the purpose of this sub. Because of this, and due to the feedback we’ve received, we’ve decided to remove these posts moving forward.

We do understand that there’s some nuance to this. Some posts are shower thoughts/ideas, and others are actual discussion questions.

For example:

  • “How would you feel about a ’if you accidentally scroll to the top, you can go back to where you were,’ button for Reddit?” is really just a feature suggestion.

  • “How would you feel about dating someone that makes a lot more money than you?” is a discussion question.

Our philosophy in AskReddit is to keep rules as objective as possible because it helps ensure fairness and consistency in moderation without allowing for a moderator's personal discretion to interfere in the practice of removing or approving content. However, we also recognize that blanket bans on the phrasing of a question does not always accurately work to meet the spirit of the rules. If you feel your ”How would you feel” post promotes elaborate discussion and is not a rhetorical idea or limiting question, feel free to modmail us a link and we’ll be happy to manually review.

Thank you to the users who modmailed us feedback asking for this policy. We always appreciate constructive feedback and we do take every bit of feedback into consideration. If you or anyone you know has been diagnosed with mesoth...sorry, wrong script...if you have feedback for us, we always appreciate it as we want to give people the best experience in AskReddit.

With love,

The Ass Credit Mods
