A historian takes their love of their subject a little too far.

The Bad Historian

Imagine a home that looks just like

Dragonstone from Game of Thrones.

All around are viscous seals that will chase you up

the slippery stone stairs to the front door.

It never stops storming there.

This is where we held our interview, back in 1942.

Here is the recording:

The Historian: "I am an expert in her poetry

and I have read every line a

million and a half times."

Interviewer:

"And you wrote the biography?"

H: "I wrote two."

Int: "You changed your handwriting to be like hers."

H: "Better to read her love letters

for research."

Int: "And you wrote letters

pretending to be her

writing to you..."

H: "It was research."

Int: "You talk about her to your friends

as if she was alive..."

H: "They know it is research."

Int: "You wrote two self insert romance novels

where you both run off

to an inaccurately idealized American South and you

self-published it."

H: "I needed money for research."

Int: "You burned her incriminating documents and

you sent hate mail to her other fans."

H: "They were going to steal

my research."

Int: "You talk to her when you think you're alone

and you smile so brightly."

H: "I just really

truly

deeply

love

my research."
