10000 books

7

I made an X-Files picture book to give myself closure after watching the show for the first time.  Then they officially announced the revival. I should have known there would be no escape from all the feelings.

10,000

Husband on phone with his dad: Hey Dear, do you want some romance books? 

Me: Like what kind?

Husband: Harlequin or something.

Me: I mean…sometimes I like to read a trashy romance novel. How many?

Husband to his dad: She wants to know how many? Oh. He says about 10,000. 

Me: Is he shitting me?

Husband: Neighbor is trying to spring clean or something.

Me: I mean…not that many. Holy balls!

Husband to his dad: She says not that many. I don’t know maybe like…a couple of boxes. Yeah. Whatever they can jam into the car when they visit. 

Me: I was thinking more like one box, but okay, several boxes it is. 

Brother in law and sister in law are visiting in March…I can’t wait to see what these boxes hold.

I've been following you for a good long while but I had to unfollow because your love for a series about a white slave master/POC slave and their Love Affair is quite frankly fucking disgusting and you should be ashamed.

hello! I’ve gotten a couple of messages like this recently, so I thought it was time to stop thinking my reply in my head then deleting the message and actually respond.

on the surface, to someone who isn’t familiar with the books (or perhaps gave up somewhere during the first one), it does look like a white slave master/POC slave and their Love Affair, but that’s not what it is. Captive Prince is an escapist fantasy written by a member of a specific ethnic minority about a character who is a member of that specific ethnic minority. it’s incredibly nuanced – a lot more nuanced that the blurb makes it seem. I’m gonna quickly run through a couple of things people who haven’t read all the books can’t know.

you don’t have to agree with me, you don’t have to like the series, you don’t have to like me for liking the series – you don’t even have to read this if you don’t want to, but I’m writing it. sorry in advance, probably. 

Keep reading

one thing i love about the septimus heap books is that if you pay attention to details you realize that all the minor characters are related or connected in some way. like, remember linda lane? yeah marrissa the witch is her daughter lmao. and that lady with the spiky hair who led the ratstranglers is the hunter’s sister.

Once you get this, you have to say five things you like about yourself, publicly. Then you have to send this to ten of your favorite followers (non-negotiable, positivity is cool~)!

Aww, thank you! :3
1. My chest. What? It’s big, soft, and makes an excellent pillow ^w^;; (I’m not ashamed to say I’m a 40DD and probably still going.) :)
2. My eyes. When sunlight hits them it reminds me of root beer~ my favorite drink!
3. My reading ability. I’m a fast reader, I can tear through a 10000+ page book within an hour if I’m left alone, and still know what the books contents are about :)
4. My hair, on occasion. It’s a mix of waves and curls, actually. Sometimes I appreciate it, other times I wish it was easier to handle. Plus I think the natural color is a bit ugly….
5. My writing ability. I don’t have a lot of confidence in it, which is why I value every little nice comment or like on the fics I make and post :) sometimes i find myself rereading anything I’ve already made, which is enjoyable :3

Hey Bitch, JKR the CREATOR of HP said Whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.” so you can shut your trap about 'movie fans are losers the books are the only thing that counts' Bullshit. if JKR doesn't have a problem with the hp movies, leave us movie fans alone and get off your fucking high horse because you're not better than anyone bitch

I have to be honest I didn’t even know how to response to this at first other than to giggle in shock and delight (seriously I was speechless! That doesn’t happen to me very often!) because I couldn’t even think what I’d said recently that could have possibly inspired this level of vitriol. And I certainly never said what you quoted up there. But I think I figured it out. It was my tags on this post, wasn’t it?

For direct reference: #(also the thing about the basilisk venom in stone – that’s frustrating too) #(seriously folks did you even READ the books?)

Well, if it was, then I’m actually just going to continue to be snarky, sorry! Because you know what? I am sick of people who haven’t read the books whinging and carping and carrying-on when they don’t understand things that were explicitly covered in the books. It’s like when you do a book report in school and get a failing grade because you only watched the movie adaptation instead of reading the actual book, and so you couldn’t answer half the questions right. Because it gets really tiring having to explain things like “a Horcrux isn’t destroyed by instant contact with basilisk venom, it’s just that basilisk venom is one of the few things that can damage something beyond the point where it could be magically repaired which is how you destroy a Horcrux, but because Fawkes saved Harry before he actually died, the Horcrux inside him wasn’t hurt” over and over and over again to whingy little brats who think they’re pointing out a massive plot hole and are just sooooo proud of themselves when really they…just don’t understand how a Horcrux works?

And J.K. Rowling seems to be tired of it too. Hence her weary #pleaseneveraskmethatoneagain hashtag on that twitter post. Because guess what? If you’re only going to watch an adaptation of something? Well, then you’re not going to understand everything that is going on, because obviously lots of parts have been excised and altered. That’s kind of how the “adaptation” process works. So if you aren’t familiar with the original, you probably shouldn’t swan around acting like some great fancy big shot who’s found an INCREDIBLE MASSIVE PLOTHOLE OMG that NOBODY ELSE NOTICED EVER!!!! aren’t you special!!! when…you didn’t. You just don’t know what you’re talking about.

It’s kind of like how I don’t go around ranting about errors in mathematical equations, or making statements about the thematic elements of tv shows I never watched, or why I don’t correct other people when they quote sections of the bible or…basically, if I don’t know what I’m talking about and I know I don’t know what I’m talking about, then I don’t act like I’ve got an informed opinion on the subject. I mean, you don’t see MCU fans running around acting like they know the comic book continuity just because they’ve seen the movies, do you? No! Nor the other way around! They’re separate fandoms, and being familiar with one of them doesn’t mean you automatically know all the facts of the other. And if you aren’t familiar with the source material, then you aren’t informed on the subject. Whatever the subject in question may be. In this case, it’s the canon of the Harry Potter story, because if you haven’t read the books then all you’ve done is watched some really high-budget fanfiction.

So while you can go ahead and enjoy the movies, and even consider yourself a fan of Harry Potter without reading the books (although why wouldn’t you???), you don’t count as being informed on the subject, because you’re unfamiliar with the source material. Because those movies? Filled with errors and omissions. Filled with them. And it’s pretty frustrating when folk who’ve only watched the movies but not read the books go around talking about the “plot holes in the story” or complaining about character actions that “don’t make sense” and so-forth. Because nine times out of ten, they’re things that are thoroughly addressed in the books and only lack sense in the movies. And those of us who have read the books tend to get tired of the story and the writing and the character development and the world building being maligned when actually that isn’t the problem the movies just got it wrong okay???

There are a lot of genuine criticisms that can be made about these books. But those tend to get overshadowed by things that aren’t legitimate criticisms because they’re problems that only exist in the movie adaptations, not in the source. And a lot of time and energy gets wasted explaining the same things over and over again to people who can’t seem to wrap their heads around the fact that if you’ve only watched the movies, you don’t know all the material. Which is fine, there’s nothing wrong with being a casual fan of something – but if you’re only a casual fan, don’t act like you know canonical minutia okay? (You don’t see me writing a lot of meta about Green Lantern, do you?) And at the least, maybe stop to think, “hey I wonder if this is a thing that is addressed in the books, maybe I can google it?” or even pop over to the Lexicon for some fact-checking and exposition before you go shooting your mouth off like you’re Fandom Moses coming down the mountain with the Big Tablets of Fictional Revelation to share with everybody. And definitely don’t keep pestering the poor author about it when she didn’t have a damn bit of control over how the movies turned out so why is she being held responsible for explaining away “plot holes” that don’t actually exist? As frustrating as this is for us, it’s got to be a hundred times worse for her. Imagine how you’d feel if you were an author and people kept whinging about “the big plot-hole in your series climax” and maligning your ability to write, especially when you’d obviously been so careful to plan and arrange everything so that it did all work, and you had devoted all sorts of exposition to it so everybody could understand it and…instead you’re constantly bombarded by people whinging about what you did wrong because they’re only familiar with the adaptation that didn’t explain it properly. I expect I’d be considerably frustrated, personally, and I would have a very hard time resisting the urge to just say, “It makes sense if you read the fucking books, so go read the actual fucking books before you bitch to me okay?!”

Because the books are the only things that count. If by “count” you mean “count as canon.” The movies aren’t canon. They’re adaptations. They’re big, fancy, high-budget fanfiction filmed with great actors and excellent effects. But they’re also full of errors and omissions because that’s how adaptation works. And I can’t imagine why you’re being this defensive over a mild complaint that someone on tumblr put in the tags of a post unless in your heart of hearts, you already know all of this. You’re not angry at me; you’re angry at you. For not knowing things like how Horcruxes work, and why the basilisk venom-infused sword could destroy them in Deathly Hallows even though Harry remained a Horcrux after being stabbed by a basilisk’s fang. For not reading the books.

But you know what? There’s an easy cure to that. It’s called a library.

And if you just don’t want to read the books? Fine! Then don’t! But learn to be content with your ignorance on the subject. Those are really the only two choices you’ve got. Either educate yourself or don’t, but don’t bitch at me when you don’t know something just because you can’t be arsed to learn it.

{26/06/16} - a new addition to my bujo pages! i did this yesterday to calm me down and also warm up for the study session ahead and i forgot to post it rip..,, anyway, the titles that are in all caps and the books that i LOVE sm and would totally reread 10000 times. the two books in the picture are the raven king by maggie stiefvater and a court of mist and fury by sarah j. maas. (they have one thing in common: both killed me and brought me back to life) ((that’s how good they are ok))
