maat_seshat: Honor with a sword, standing in front of a burning protective dome (Honor Harrington)

Memory is a creepy, creepy thing.

I don't know if you've ever seen the Ballad of Mulan (this page includes an English translation), but one of the things I find most fascinating about it is the emphasis on domestic activities. When Mulan is a daughter, she weaves and sighs. When she leaves, she "doesn't hear" her parents calling and "crosses passes and mountains like flying". When she returns, she fixes her hair and puts on yellow flower powder. The focus on how she signifies what she is, as it were, is pretty strong.
