THINGS I’VE LEARNED FROM TUMBLR ABOUT YA BOOKS I HAVEN’T ACTUALLY READ

Disclaimer: There might be spoilers but also all of this could be wrong.

Shadowhunters: Teenagers covered in tattoos fight evil ninjas. The TV show is apparently better than the books and the author is an asshole. Everyone ships the blond guy and the redheaded girl even though they seem to be siblings, and a dark-haired guy called Alec at some point made out with a glittery Asian DJ?

Divergent: Teenagers also covered in tattoos fight mysterious dystopian government which sorts them into sci-fi versions of the Hogwarts Houses and apparently has sumptuary laws about not wearing anything that isn’t black. At some point you jump off a building in a very extreme game of parachute. Somebody dies at the end and nobody talks about it.

Eleanor & Park: Chubby freckled redhead and skinny Korean boy meet on a bus and probably fall in love? Earbuds.

Percy Jackson: Summer camp for bastard offspring of various Greek deities. Chapter titles look like Fall Out Boy songs. The movie was terrible. Rick Riordan is milking this for all it is worth.

Grisha Trilogy: Everyone is Russian and into BDSM. Also, antlers.

Throne of Glass: Girl assassin is supposed to protect somebody from something and has sex in a closet with somebody named Chaol?

The Selection: Fairy tale version of The Bachelor with a really annoying protagonist.

The Maze Runner: Hunger Games/Lord of the Flies slashfic sausagefest.  

Vampire Academy: Vampire royalty need personal bodyguards at their fancy prep school for some reason. People fight with sticks. Stakes? I don’t know they just look like sticks.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe: Gay boys indistinguishable in fan art from the gay boys in Song of Achilles go on a road trip and wear Chuck Taylors. One of them is Latino? I think there’s a pool involved.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone: I thought this was part of the Grisha trilogy and now I know it isn’t but that’s all I know about it.

Lunar Chronicles: Cinderella is a mechanic and everyone really hated the cover art with the apple.

The Raven Cycle: Asian girl named Blue babysits a group of gay boys in a weird Southern town called Cabswater or Carpswater or something. One of them dies but doesn’t seem to actually go away? Someone turns into a tree.

The Fault in Our Stars: Kids with cancer fall in love, one of them dies, and they tell each other stuff’s okay even though it’s pretty obviously not okay. Everybody forgets about the blind friend. The cigarette is a metaphor but I’m pretty sure John Green doesn’t actually know what a metaphor is.

Stephanie Perkins’ books: Cutesey heterosexual rom-coms which take place in Romantic with a capital R European cities and one of the boys is named after a bug.

Okay how did I do?

Requested by: @we-are-but-stardust

Request: Can you do a scenario where “y/n” and t.o.p have had so much sexual tension and have had to keep it on lockdown and hide it from the rest of the group. But finally get a moment to unleash all the sex and aggression?
A/N: Idk if this is the longest smut ever, but this is pretty damn long. I always imagined, and honestly believe, that TOP himself is aggressive or can be in the bedroom. He has attributes that he’s either said or I’ve noticed that lead me to believe that, so that’s how I’ve written him here. He’s aggressive and takes charge, and rips panties off with a look. Also, if you don’t need a metaphorical cigarette after reading this, I must have done something wrong. ENJOY!!
Warnings: This is the smuttiest thing I’ve ever written. SMUT!SMUT!SMUT! So much smut. There is also some BDSM, Dominant and Submissive play hinted in here. So please, be careful while reading.

i dont know how to write without cliches;
black coffee and bitter hearts
cigarettes that aren’t just metaphors
fiery eyes, chapped lips, broken girl weeping in her bedroom

everything’s been tried once or twice or a thousand times
even the poems that swear they won’t be like others
diverge from one box of thought directly into the next circle of conformity

broken faith
weeping angels
“i don’t believe in god anymore”

sacrilege is mainstream
is a poem a poem without nihilism?
if there isn’t a dash of existentialism
will anyone even read it?

bloody lips
broken home
abused girl finally finds love

why is everything so damned broken?
why doesn’t anybody write a poem that fixes something?
read their pain so you don’t have to focus on your own.

“music is all i have”
“i wanted to be pretty so i stopped eating”
“i drank a little too much last night”

suffering is beautiful if you put it into a few stanzas
isn’t it?


this poem isn’t a revolution
and neither was yours

Sunday Symbolism: the Symbolism of Cigarettes

This week I thought it a good idea to look a bit more into the symbolism of cigarettes in relation with the Turners. After all, one of their initial bonding moments was sharing a cigarette after a difficult birth, and the cigarettes kept a strong presence throughout the third, fourth and fifth season after that. I’ll do this in a chronological order, because I think these little stubs of tobacco actually reflect the relationship between Shelagh and Patrick very well. Let’s start!
