Old Music and the Slave Women[edit]

Moved to mainspace by Vanamonde93 (talk). Self-nominated at 06:46, 12 May 2018 (UTC).

Symbol question.svg Interesting story, on good sources, offline sources accepted AGF, no copyvio obvious. Both hooks are sourced, but both seem longish. The topic of slavery is in the title, and doesn't need repetition, no? How about simply "fifth way to forgiveness", + other universe? (... or it may seem like a historic story set in SC). I would name the author, to honour her, therefore strike ALT1. - How do you feel about an infobox (not required, of course)? - No need to reference the plot, but now you did it ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:22, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
@Gerda Arendt: Thanks for the review; I agree it's a bit wordy, but I did feel that the slavery link wasn't obvious; it was the slave plantation that inspired the story, not just the location. What do you think of ALT2 below? I'm not keen on a "fifth way to forgiveness"-based hook, simply because it seems rather dependent on knowledge of Le Guin's work and is also based largely on a quote, which I prefer to avoid.

Symbol voting keep.svg thank you! - I have a FAC open, DYK? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:40, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
Cheers! The FAC looks interesting, but there's a lot of drama going on at the moment...I'll try to get to it. Vanamonde (talk) 08:03, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
