Once upon a time, creator Daniel Errico had a vision of a new animated cartoon that would follow the story of a young woman as she navigates the trials and tribulations of her magical land on the way to meet her sweetheart — who also happens to be a woman.

In a video called, appropriately enough, "Subway Reading: The Sequel," Rogowsky and fellow comedian Akilah Hughes once again introduce riders to timeless classics.

But don’t thank me — as I’m sure you were about to, my friends — but rather the #RemoveALetterSpoilABook hashtag trending on Twitter.
