“Being in a band, however, that’s the hard part. Managing personalities, scheduling time, dedicating oneself to one’s craft, pressing on when no one seems to care—that’s hard. Most groups simply dissolve when someone realizes that being in a rock group is a lot tougher than it sounds.” (City States)
City States is a new band that my sister has found on twitter, I think their music is very intresting :) if you wanna know more about them this is their blog: http://www.citystatesmusic.com/home
it’s hard to say anything good about a book that starts in the middle of a gang rape, and at the end, has the character marry one of her rapists…
AND IT WAS SO UNNECESSARY. AND GROSS. All the stuff about Friday being an ‘artificial person’ and not having rights even though she clearly was a sapient creature was good stuff. The US having broken into citystates, good stuff. The technology? Good stuff. You could build a story on all of that easily.
But then she’s all “whatever” about rape and then she becomes a courier for what turns out to be a fetus and keeps it and marries one of her goddamn rapists and the book ends with her 14 year old child getting knocked up by an adult and she’s just like ‘lol I guess we should have taught you about birth control’ and ARRRGH.
Gonna start Storytelling Sundays, in which I post random stories, headcanons, quips, etc. about other League of Legends champions/citystates etc. Occasionally I will post about OC’s as well from the ‘verse.
…It’s basically going to be like Worldbuilder Wednesdays but less about the world and more about individual characters.
