NaNoWriMo #6


For her final wish, Emily switched off irony, and thereby kicked away the social crutches from four million hipsters.

Unable to claim they liked things ironically, they were forced to admit that when they bounced around to Taylor Swift, it was due to a passionate love of girlie pop, not a comment on society’s overt commercialism.

And now they could be honest with each other about their feelings on the zeitgeist, they became happier than any generation has ever been.

Emily was somewhat dismayed, since she’d been hoping to troll an entire subculture.

“The irony,” she growled, “is not lost.”
