A good alien. Very captivating eyes that hold the secrets of the universe. 5/5
Went for a very simplistic approach. Simple is good, but not in this sense. His head is much too rounded. 3/5
Thick lines as always. While the eyes are wonderful, this boy looks very crowded. 3/5
What the fuck is this. Why does he look like he just realized something that’s been haunting him for the entirety of his existence. What is this Photoshop gradient it’s fucking awful. 1/5
Do not let this one near children. He’ll laugh while burning your families bodies at the exact same time. Still better than Samsung, though. 2/5
Incredible. He’s so menacing, but cute at the same time. This is a very good boy. 6/5
Looks quite upset. I’d like to sit down with him and ask about what’s on his mind. It’s alright, little guy. 4/5 5/5 to boost his confidence.
Stop right there. This is too much. His upper face is angry, but lower face seems upset. Make up your mind, messanger. 2/5
Incredible. His face comes to a cone perfectly, and isn’t too overbearing. This is an alien, my friendo. 6/5
While he is still very cute, he looks more like an outlet rather than an alien. Good work, Mozilla. At least you tried. 4/5
Something feels off here. He seems too innocent, and looks more like a pea that belongs in a plush pea pod. 3/5
Who the fuck do you think you are. Do you honestly think you can waltz into my house, eat my food, and leave without another word? You disgust me. Just because you’re different, doesn’t mean you’re special. Get the fuck out of my house. 0/5
a bit of a shitpost but I just wanted to list out some songs that for some reason are acting as my audio fuel for these next few fic chapters of Bandages and Bravado! Until recently I drove a lot for work so, the radio is my friend. I don’t know why but really high pitched playful bashful shit gets me READY TO ROLLLLLLLL
Talk Too Much – Coin (this one is also DEAD RINGER for EraserMic, basically everyone possibly interested in Shouta just needs to stfu and pucker up because these anxietal blond bitches are too chatty god damn)
House on Fire – Sia (did I mention they’re both human dumpster fires so it follows)
Tricky – Fitz and the Tantrums (Shouta in a nutshell, doesn’t matter with whom)
Yellow – Coldplay (stole this one from the Twitter hivemind, breaks the heart it does)
The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
Follow a motley crew on an exciting journey through space—and one adventurous young explorer who discovers the meaning of family in the far reaches of the universe—in this light-hearted debut space opera from a rising sci-fi star.
Length: 467 pages Price: $8 on Kindle, $13 at Barnes&Noble
Do you like space? Casts of quirky characters, who experience love, loss, and culture shock during their intergalactic exploits? Do you like lesbians who don’t die?
Then this might be a book for you! There were a lot of things to like, such as the casual lgbt representation (one of the characters has two dads), and the Found Family dynamic of the crew of the Wayfarer. There was also gratuitous use of the word “fuck,” should that influence your opinion in any way.
Unfortunately, there were also a lot of things i didn’t really like. Space slang can be cool, in moderation, but in excess it just makes the dialogue clunky and awkward in a feeble attempt to emphasize the Futuristic Elements of the universe. And that’s another thing: the book involved EXTENSIVE world-building, which is impressive at any level, but it was incredibly difficult to keep all of the different species straight and most of the world-building was expressed through the main character asking others for explanations, or basically googling different alien cultures.
The plot was essentially the result of the Murphy’s Law of space travel, going off on so many tangents that I legitimately forgot what the final destination and purpose of the journey even were. And at some points, the characters felt a little too much like knock-off Firefly characters (ex. the energetic and carefree engineer named Kizzy, who reads like Kaylee from Firefly, if Kaylee had at least twice the amount of energy and feelings her body could contain.)
Do I regret reading it? No. Would I buy a physical copy? No.
Do you want to fuck a large reptilian alien? So does the main character!
A fugitive falls in love with a pilot, a captain falls in love with a mercenary, and a human falls in love with a space ship. #LoveWins
Capitalism and bureaucracy were the real villains all along.
Do you enjoy spontaneous, pointless redemption arcs? Keep your eye on the species-ist rude man with no redeeming qualities, who likes algae more than people and yells at everyone!
Recommended for: People who enjoyed Star Trek and Firefly but thought “this could be a little gayer.”
Into the Wild by Jon Krakeaur is a book I read for AP language in junior year of high school and when I found this book, I never done so much research. I loved Chris McCandless and I loved how not everyone could understand why he was so great. I’ve always wanted to pack a bag of books and leave across the country but I could never have the guts. Jon Krakeaur wrote such a wonderfully read and painfully sad non-fiction story about a boy who found himself living a life outdoors and on the go. This book makes me think about my life in retrospect SO much, it’s ridiculous. I feel so angsty when I read this book and so ready to leave for the west coast. I am always thinking about this book and I don’t think I’ll forget it.
the Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephan Chbosky 5/5
I read this for the first time in middle school and then re-read it when I became a senior in high school. It’s something that has always stuck with me because of the emotions I feel while reading it. It deals with soo many important things like ptsd, rape, homophobia, depression, etc. This book is the ultimate coming of age novel for me. I love absolutely everything about it.
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger 4/5
This is one of the first classics I ever read and I didn’t get it at all. I closed the book after finishing it the first time I read it freshman year of high school and thought I had only just read a book about a dumb boy roaming New York. As I grew older, I realized Holden Alexander is way too relatable and the entire centering theme of innocence is something I think about a lot. Also, I love coming of age. So good.
the Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini 5/5
Do I really need to explain myself for this one? I can’t say it impacted me personally in ways I still realize today but it made me open my eyes more to situations other people can be in and how you impact someone else’s life. I cried heaps when reading this book.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury 4/5
I read this for school in my junior year of high school and I haven’t let go of it. It really just made me appreciate literature more and become aware of what’s going on in the world around me.

Do you ever look at someone and think, I love you, even thought you shouldn’t?
Byron ran a frustrated hand though his hair, as he stood up. His eyes flickered around the room, and they stopped as soon at they came upon Y/N. She was beautiful. She met his eyes with a small smile, before turning back to Joe. He sighed internally, before walking towards the bathroom. Byron looked at himself, and frowned. Why do I have to be in love with the girl who is obviously dating my best mate? He thought to himself as he fixed his hair in the mirror. How much of an idiot am I? Byron stood their for a while, contemplating what he was going to do. Leave? Or keep sitting on the couch, obviously left out. Leave, he decided. “See ya guys, I’m heading to Jacks house” Byron said, shrugging on a coat and heading towards the door. The two chirped their goodbyes as he bustled out the door. He jumped into his car, and drove to Jack’s apartment a few blocks away.
When he got to the door, Jack opened with surprise. “Byron, man! Come in!” Byron smiled and walked in sheepishly, taking a seat on the couch. “What’s up?” Jack asked, taking a seat next to him.
“Girls. Fucking girls.” Byron huffed, sitting back into the seat. He ran his hands through his hair, as he did once before. Jack laughed slightly, before replying.
“So you’ve come to me, the one you’ve all titled as ‘the Casanova’.” Byron nodded.
“We say that because you’re fucking slick, man. You could literally get any girl you want.” Byron sighed. Jack once again laughed, but after seeing Byron’s expression, his soon changed too. Jack talked to him for probably an hour, giving him tips and motivation to win her over.
It was quiet when Byron returned back home. Joe was in the shower, and Y/N was laying on the couch, in the same spot as she was when he left. “Hey Byron” she smiled as he sat at her feet. He smiled back, anxiety filling in the pit of his stomach.
“Y/N,” He said, turning to face her. She looked up, cocking her head slightly. “Ahh, I shouldn’t be in love with you,” he whispered to himself.”
“What?” She asked.
“I said that I shouldn’t be in love with you. But yet, I am. I was meant to be all smooth and ease into it, yet here I am… blabbering like a dickhead. Look, I’m sorry since you’re like basically dating Joe, but I couldn’t help but just tell you because I just, I fucking love you.” Byron rambled, anxiously rubbing his hands together. A smile came up onto her lips, followed by a giggle.
“You’re so naive,” she giggled, sitting up and putting her forehead onto his, “so naive.”
character you love who is unfairly blamed for things going wrong: summer finn ↳“since the disintegration of her parent’s marriage, she’d only loved two things. the first was her long dark hair. the second was how easily she could cut it off and not feel a thing.”
