In my second year of graduate school, I took a creative nonfiction class.  Our final assignment was to choose something of importance to us and society and write a paper covering it.  Obviously, I chose unicorns.


Please enjoy this tongue-in-cheek “scholarly” paper on the magical beasts (one of the many euphemisms for unicorns you’ll find within).  Names are abbreviated to protect the people who gave me these ridiculous quotes.


You’re welcome, academia.

Alluring, yes?
