Army of Revolt by Xamag Army of Revolt by Xamag
"May I ask your name?"
"I am General Jinjur," was the brief reply.
"Oh!" said the boy surprised. "What sort of a General?"
"I command the Army of Revolt in this war," answered the General, with unnecessary sharpness.
"Oh!" he again exclaimed. "I didn't know there was a war."
"You were not supposed to know it," she returned, "for we have kept it a secret; and considering that our army is composed entirely of girls," she added, with some pride, "it is surely a remarkable thing that our Revolt is not yet discovered."


Jinjur will never stop being hilarious :heart: One of my favourite Baum's characters

Jinjur was definitely one of my favorites, too. She is so crazy :XD: I love how these girls took down all of the Emerald City with just knitting needles. :P

Nice! :D I love Jinjur, too - a strong-willed woman, which is cool for a turn of the century children's book. She looks so young, though, compared with the John R. Neill illustrations! Which isn't necessarily bad. Love how it looks like an old photo! And the army in the background ;)

I especially love how he pictured feminists in the modern popular meaning of this word, it's so funny to know that some of my friends easily could be in that army even a century later :D Just to clarify, this is my OC that's only loosely based on book's characters, but I adore Neil's Jinjur <3
