Just keep writing, just keep writing, just keep writing, writing writing.

Fast approaching the publication date of Perihelid, October 17! My betas have been sooooooo hard at work! Two are nearly finished, and the most are right on track! I have some great reactions from them I’ll be posting closer to release day.

In a couple weeks I’ll be in Oregon watching the solar eclipse! Then I’m moving down to Savannah, Georgia a few days later! August will be a busy month for by all the prep for publication, and I’m sooo excited :D it’s so surreal that I’m publishing the next book soon. Can you believe it’s already been two years? Only four more books to go in the series….

the raven cycle + poetry → adam parrish // the stars glitter, glitter…

Last night I dreamed that Arjun Gupta was talking about being a vampire and he was like “I’m a good vampire though, like a Cullen. A vegetarian vampire.” Then he laughed and said “Nah, I’m just kidding. I’ve killed a shit load of people.”

Then there was a lot of panic over Stella because, apparently, Stella just seems like someone who would get bit by a vampire. Like, someone said that people named Stella always got bit by vampires.

Then it just went back to the reoccurring dream I have where Arjun and I have to fight neo-nazis

“I’m not sure,” she whispered, looking down to the ground, “I’m not even sure if I do miss him. I miss the memories, and I miss talking to him and the way he made me feel. But I still don’t know if miss him, you know?“

I'm terrified about trc tv show

So I thought I’d make a list of shit that I couldn’t cope with it not having:
-Blue and Ronan are played by Amandla Stenburg and Reece King
-Noah needs to be a faded glittery ghost child, he needs the glitter that’s the most important part
-the “murdered murdered remembered” scene
-everything needs to be aesthetic and pretty
-Cabeswater needs to look pretty not some ugly cgi shit
-the pig
-the iffy maybe slightly problematic stuff that ronan said would preferably be excluded
-the wardrobe needs to be good, the boat shoes cannot be excluded
-THE MURDER SQUASH SONG
-300 Fox Way has to be so busy and cosy and psychic-y
-I want Ronans love affair with his car to be captured in excruciating detail I fucking love Ronan and his car
-pynch
-it needs to be shown that Ronan is completely and utterly in love with Adam but shown in a soft light and pretty and also Fire and sex and just you know
-Ronan and Noah’s friendship
-When Gansey and Blue kiss but don’t kiss on the mountains I loved that scene so much
-“I’m always straight” “oh man that’s the biggest lie you’ve ever told”

we also need to talk about what magnus’ spellbook implies which is that he’s singlehandedly created hundreds if not thousands of spells and that these are spells unique to him. meaning he’s the only one who can both cast and undo them, except for what he may have chosen to share to a select few. and that these are likely the spells warding the Institute, but not only that, the Clave is probably relying on many other spells he’s created.

basically what i’m saying is magnus bane has the greatest insurance policy ever because if he goes, all of his spells go with him.
