“My son pored over those pages as if they were holy writ. He must have read through them a thousand times, questioning every word. […]”

anonymous asked:

Dad's reacting to someone who is obessed with books. Like there are piles of books everywhere. Constantly is reading and tends to make a obscure reference to a book no one knows about.

Joseph: He’s a bit troubled by the sheer number of books stacked everywhere around the house, but he’s glad MC has found a wholesome pastime. He loves listening to MC’s excited rants about whatever book he’s reading at that time, the light in his eyes and the bright smile on his face just too adorable. He sometimes picks up one of the books, just so that he can make sense of all the random quotes MC throws his way.

Craig: surprisingly, he wants to start reading too. Books had had next to no appeal to him before, but seeing the light in his bro’s eyes as he goes on and on about his favorites gets him curious. He and MC start something like a two-man book club, reading together and discussing the book as they go along.

Brian: Cannot see the appeal of having so many books, but is supportive. This is the one thing MC can truly beat him at, spouting quotes and trivia that Brian can never understand. He definitely tries, and sometimes pretends he’s read the book already, citing not wanting to spoil it for MC as his reason for not discussing it. MC saw through his charade since day one, but thinks it’s cute that he tries.  

Mat: honestly? He doesn’t see anything strange about it. He has stacks and stacks of records in his own house, what’s the difference? He does like it when MC recites poetry or poetic literature, because he can hear a subtle music behind it. Sometimes he tries to put them to songs, which MC finds both hilarious and adorable, neither of which he’ll admit aloud.

Hugo: he loves to just watch MC read. He thinks it is adorable how intently his boyfriend stares at the pages, how fully engrossed he is with the story. Sometimes he purposefully snuggles with him and pretend to read along, when he’s really watching MC’s face as he reads. He makes it a point to listen to his explanations on whatever obscure quotes he makes.

Damian: he’s overjoyed when he sees Victorian literature amongst the piles of books in MC’s home; Sherlock Holmes, Dracula, etc. He’s already read them a thousand times over, and eagerly engages in firing off quotes from all of them. MC takes him to the graveyard sometimes specifically to read by candlelight, and Damian thinks it is the single most romantic thing anyone has ever done for him.

Robert: he’s actually an avid reader as well, he just hides it better. He prefers ebooks, because he can read them right from his phone whenever he wants, and avoid unnecessary clutter. As you would expect, he’s into horror and sci-fi novels, and often makes direct quotes during his explanations of cryptids to see if anyone can call him out on it. MC does— Robert will never admit how much he loves it.

Not A College Gothic

•The house is bitter cold, even in the late spring, and though you’ve never quite adjusted to it, the frigid air feels more welcoming than the suffocating humidity that most low-grade apartment space heaters provide. It keeps you alert, and awake, and appreciative of your charcoal knit sweaters.

•The dorm kitchen is not a place where most chefs would feel at home, or even mildly comfortable.

•There are no appliances other than a rusted stovetop nestled under a thick layer of dust, and your tea kettle, which is often the only reason you enter the kitchen.

•Beside the kettle sits a plastic skeleton bottle holder; a gift from your mother. The skeleton is in a sort of seductive repose, holding the same bottle of red that it was when it was given to you. You’re not a drinker. You stumble enough when you’re sober.

•The only plant in sight is a dead fern; a gift from a high school friend who you hadn’t thought of since graduation and will likely never think about again. It droops melancholily in its flowerpot and will soon be no more than a sad pile of compost; clearly you don’t think much of the plant either.

•The cupboards are barren, save for a few biscuits and earl grey teabags scattered haphazardly around the empty shelves.

•The fridge is in a similar state; There is a glass bottle of ketchup at the far inner corner that expired in 2012. The bottom drawer is occupied by a head of wilted lettuce and three rotting tomatoes; or perhaps it was four. It’s hard to tell now.

•There is no source of protein to be found, save for a sizeable colony of silverfish living between the cracks in the walls.

•You don’t entertain much, but perhaps that was obvious.

strange/norrell fic is over 8000 words now. do i know what’s going on? do i know whether i will finish it? do i have a proper outline?  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Not one to usually give reviews but cause of all the hype I heard about how much better this one was than the first one, I kinda feel the need to offer up my opinion (spoiler free!) ⭐️⭐️⭐️ it was ok, enjoyable, it took until about halfway through for things to really get interesting and I still don’t reaaaaally feel any strong connection to any of the character but if you liked the first one, you’ll definitely like this one as well! Those of you who’ve read it, what did you think of it?

pure ™ things

- a friend being excited to spend time with you!

- people who put their old books outside their house for anyone to take home!

- singing and talking to cats like they’re your baby!

- when you accidentally bump into a stranger and you say “sorry” and they say “no worries!”

- when someone rests their head on your shoulder!
