R.I.P. Miss Jones. Oh, but she was amazing. She was dyslexic.
Diana Wynne Jones passed away today after battling with illness for a very long time. I am unreasonably sad about this. Or maybe not so unreasonably. The woman was a genius and touched so many people in twelve different worlds. So, for everyone, my favorite sentence from Howl's Moving Castle, which makes me laugh like I'm 8 all over again, and which I like to pretend shows exactly what kind of woman she was:

 "But finally he discovered the stairs, all except the bottom one, and fell up them on his face."
