cannot handle this book

still hoping for the best

Other blogs: we’ve never seen how SJM ends a series so ACOTAR is the first series she’s finishing which means she could very well just leave Feyre and Rhysand apart, wreck all the OTPs, kill everyone we love and destroy the whole of Velaris and we’ll have to accept that My blog:

Then Obi-Wan reached out his hand and pressed his palm briefly to Anakin’s cheek. Ahsoka saw his lips move. Saw him say: Well done.
And the look on Anakin’s face, at those two small words, brought her treacherously close to tears.

“You will see that ‘Villette’ touches on no matter of public interest. I cannot write books handling the topics of the day—it is of no use trying. Nor can I write a book for its moral.”
–Charlotte Brontë, in a letter to George Smith

Prompt with Fred and George: "I swear...I cannot handle another class with 'Dumbridge'. *Buries face into book/muffled* That pink crypt keeper is gonna be the death of us."

You were sat in class, Umbridge had finally left the room to talk to another teacher and you were about to commit murder. “I swear…I cannot handle another class with ‘Dumbridge’.” You buried your face into your book, your words and your frustrated screaming muffled by the pages. “That pink crypt keeper is gonna be the death of us.”  

A hand patted you on the back and you slowly lifted your head up to look at George to your right, “For once I actually agree with you, Y/N…” Fred to your left nodded in agreement. All three of you looked like you were about to die from a mixture of boredom, hatred, and frustration. You hated Umbridge, you hoped she got eaten by a troll or a giant. 

If you cannot read all your books, at any rate handle, or as it were, fondle them – peer into them, let them fall open where they will, read from the first sentence that arrests the eye, set them back on the shelves with your own hands, arrange them on your own plan so that if you do not know what is in them, you at least know where they are. Let them be your friends; let them at any rate be your acquaintances. If they cannot enter the circle of your life, do not deny them at least a nod of recognition.

  • so this afternoon my father called me ‘a baby’ for being unable to do homework in the atmosphere of my grandparents’ house and for being unable to conceive of alternative solutions, i.e., going to the library in their town to work
  • (I am generally unable to imagine or create options that are not presented to me, or to conceive of something I want unless it is already on a list of options; it would be like dividing by zero)
  • (I was like 'if I couldn’t walk or hear, we wouldn’t be having this conversation’ and my parents were like 'blather about physical impairments being visible’ and apparently my father systematically does not take statements of 'I can’t’ at face value, because in his experience usually people just think they can’t do things and can actually do them by sheer force of willpower!! they just don’t ~believe in themselves!!)
  • literally got through this afternoon by channeling Clarice Starling
  • and then failing to channel Clarice Starling (tears may have been shed lol)
  • it’s fine now though! my parents mostly-apologized but seem quite bewildered by the idea that I have limitations at all (is this what I get for my high-school A+’s)
  • and I bookmarked some posts on ~uneven skills~ for them to read
  • oh dear

Have you ever read a book that actually causes you physical pain? I cannot handle the book that I am reading, my heart hurts from this book, oh my goodness gracious.

I haven’t picked it up since December, but The Perks of Being a Wallflower hurt to read, and I was only half way through it.

Sorry to hear that, anon! And yes, yes, it very much is, especially if you are hyperempathic and have suffered a lot of personal embarrassment.
