Well, it doesn't involve cute little innocent kittens licking themselves and being adorable, let me tell you!

 

I HAVE SEEN THINGS THAT CANNOT BE UNSEEN!

And I even had this whole

Bolton/Frey alliance figured out (though not for the entirely right reasons) way back in Book 2. I knew something like this was coming.

Still not prepared.

 

CATELYN TOO? WHYYYYY?

Charlotte's Web
Charlotte's Web - E.B. White,Garth Williams,Rosemary Wells

I probably had this book on permanent check out from my school's library when I was a kid. I don't even know how many times I read it growing up, feeling awkward and out of place and wanting that one person to think I'm special. I loved Wilbur and Charlotte and their amazing friendship. <3

Still don't like spiders though. ;)

Life imitating fictional virtual pets
The Lifecycle of Software Objects - Ted Chiang

I read this ages ago, but I recall it touching on owners of virtual pets forming groups to try to keep their pets and the environments they live in going after the company that originally created them all folds. Well, I just came across a real-life example of something similar, although from the sounds of things there won't be a happy ending. Details under a spoiler tag, because it's depressing:

Virtual pets that eat DRM-protected food, and a legal battle means their food supply is about to go poof. I've seen people talk about patching the pets so they don't need food, but it sounds like that might not be possible. :-(

 

ETA: The company did at least release items that could make it so the pets don't need food, although it also sterilized them. Better than falling asleep and never waking up, I guess? There's an article here.

(spoiler show)

 

Another thing to add to the "reasons why DRM sucks" list.
