The most curiosity-piquing response to Kitty’s sudden stardom, though, came from beloved Internet denizen and wildly talented YA novelist John Green, a patron saint to hundreds of thousands of smart teens, who tweeted that he was “in love with” Pryde and Tumbld his comparison to, of all people, MC Paul Barman. One of the central tenets of Green’s fiction, which is full of fully realized teenagers who I don’t find all that different from myself and my friends, is that youth should be underestimated only at the estimator’s peril. Kitty Pryde may be one hell of a test case for that hypothesis.
I’ve already posted the Kitty Pryde thing I wrote
once, but I wanted to have this portion here.
