Dominique Francon is the heroine of The Fountainhead and seems to be the only woman in the world made for the protagonist and architect Howard Roark. Likewise, he seems to be the only man for her. You know, it’s funny, both Howard and Dominique have this contempt for people around them. They feel like nobody measures up to their own personal standards of design or of life. Yet somehow, they’re both lovable. Dominique is admirable because she realizes that in life she has nobody to answer to but herself and doesn’t have to worry about how others value or judge her. Once she picks that up, she finds total and utter happiness. She’s right you know, who gives a shit?

Do you know before I became the world’s leading rhythmic gymnast, I really wanted to be an architect? The design of buildings always held an interest for me, from historical architecture, to Bauhaus, to post-modern crap. Howard Roark, the protagonist of The Fountainhead and I share this love. Like many people, he suffers for his work. Howard finds it difficult to work after he graduates. He could find easy success at the sacrifice of his own creativity. He knows how good of an architect he is and he spends his early career bouncing around, waiting for somebody to recognize his talent. His work life is plagued by negative press and a relationship with Dominique Francon. Eventually, Roark finds somebody to appreciate his work, but not without exploding some things. Hooray for explosions.
