Rules: In a text post, list ten books (but I guess manga and comics are good as well) that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag [ten] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.

har du någonsin funderat på att flytta till manchester?
aahhh man HAVE I EVER, but the reason why i haven’t yet is like the longest poor excuses 101 list ever. the least poor being that you can’t actually outrun yourself by running across the sea, though, which is why when it happens (because it will), there needs to be more than just that reason for it to happen.
OH JEEZ gotta love airline problems, always fucking shit up… I hope things go well tomorrow with the work mess and THE FLIGHT IS GOOD AND GETS YOU HOME SAFE. Expensive ass chocolate + HaruRin porn WONDERFUL YES (also I’m sending that thing on Mon!)

IT’S A MEME YO ok finally I had the time to get around to finishing this sooooo
Rule 1: Post the rules. Rule 2: Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post then make 11 new ones. Rule 3: Tag 11 people and link them to your post. Rule 4: Let them know you’ve tagged them.
Ahahah I knew someone was gonna pick up on that, but I can explain! I don’t actively hate on Sasuke, but in the context of the manga he’s my least favourite character because he basically gets the short end of the narrative stick – an antagonist whose reasons for being antagonistic are repeatedly made obsolete, yet Kishimoto needs him in that position of rivalry/antagonism through any means possible. What this means is that Sasuke’s character ultimately turns into the worst possible example of a martyr complex, unable to move on or grow up in ways other people (whose lives have been equally, if not even more, filled with traumatic incidents and injustice) have. The reasons I love Gaara are the same reasons I dislike Sasuke, because one has realized his own role in perpetuating his own mistreatment, whereas the other desperately clings to the past as justification for wanting to see the world burn.
Granted, I haven’t read the very recent chapters (which make it sound like Sasuke’s kicking the bucket only to make a dramatic comeback through some means or other), but basically I kept wanting to throw things at Sasuke every time he supposedly found his answers, only to blame his need for revenge on a completely new thing instead. Like I said, this is partially because of his role in the story (i.e. the narrative fucks him over by refusing him the chance of getting over and growing the fuck up), so I’m not completely without sympathy; still, Sasuke ticks all the boxes on the list of character tropes that I cannot ultimately stand, i.e. byronic martyr complex with no pulling-my-head-out-of-my-ass in sight while he continues to complicate other people’s lives while assuming the world revolves around him. So yeah, not currently a huge fan of his character.
Rule 2 - Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then make 11 new ones.
Rule 3 - Tag 11 people and link them to your post.
Rule 4 - Let them know you’ve tagged them.
I tag: jaana, popculturesyndrome, drugsforaddicts, pararin, cinnamonhusky, viciousviivi, stewardoftheaeroplane, buttminus, spaceboy-dream, monrepos, seashellsongs, lagiovanettadeiboschi and anyone who just wants to do this because I realized 11 people is not enough to list everyone.
he looks like he’s wearing a pair of black skinnies and an overlarge gray-white shirt? …also, a jacket-thing. (looking forward to le cosplay, senpai!)
Is it a jacket or a cardigan? Is the shirt v-necked? He seems to have got something around his neck, like the thread of a necklace, but what’s at the end of it? THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS ARGH (ahaha thank you! I hope I don’t completely butcher him…)
Yeah travelling alone is one of the things I love doing the most because you’re left alone with your thoughts and forced to get along with yourself. Plus it makes you more confident about doing stuff because you have to get by with what you know. And man I used to have so many point cards (like to Waterstone’s) but they all expire before I can make use of them sob
Yeeesss my trips to England are always full of exciting adventures and long rambley shit hahah (I just realized I’ve been to the UK six times within the past 2 years??? ok)
