Top 10 reasons to read Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
#1 Kaz’ first time
“You were first arrested at ten,” he said scanning the pages.
“Everybody remembers their first time.”
#2 Inej’s deepest desires
Inej crossed her arms. One minute he made her blush and the next he made her want to commit murder.
#3 Jesper being reassuring
“Just stay behind me and try not to get killed. Ready?”
Wylan shook his head.
“Then forget that I asked.”
“It’s just so much easier to kill people than take care of them.”
#5 Ladies discussing their suitors with upmost esteem
“He was afraid for you.”
“Kaz isn’t afraid of anything.”
“You should have seen his face when he brought you to me.”
“I’m a very valuable investment.”
Nina’s jaw dropped. “Tell me he didn’t say that.”
“Of course he did. Well, not the valuable part.”
“Also an idiot.”
#6 Kaz being the bastard of the Barrel, the demon full of tricks, the mad man everyone feared a 17 year old with a crush
“You know i can do it, Kaz, and you know I’m not going to refuse. So why ask?”
Because i’ve been looking for an excuse to talk to you for two days.
He needed to know that she believed in him.
#7 Girl power
“It’s not natural for women to fight.” (Nina)
“It’s not natural for someone to be as stupid as he is tall, and yet there you stand.” (Matthias)
#8 Power of seductress
“Oh, I see. I’m the wicked Grisha seductress. I have beguiled you with my Grisha wiles!” She(Nina) poked him(Matthias) in the chest.
“No. I’m beguiling you.”
She danced around him in the snow, poking his chest, his stomach, his side. “Goodness! You’re very solid. This is strenuous work.” He started to laugh. “It’s working! The beguiling has begun. The Fjerdan has fallen. You are powerless to resist me.”
#9 Heartbreaking, emotional and painful love declarations
“Maybe I liked your stupid face.”
#10 101 Swearing with Prof. Jesper Fahey
“Prepared to hear the sound of certain doom?” he asked.
“You’ve never heard my father mad.”
“That sense of humor is getting progressively more Barrel-appropriate. If we survive, I’ll teach you how to swear.”
“I’ve just been, uh…thinking…a lot lately.” “About what?” “I don’t know…everything. Can I tell you something?” “Shoot.” “I like guys, and I like girls. Pretty much anyone in between. That’s probably not news to you. But you wanna know how I first found that out?” “I dunno, do I?” “It was my parents’ fault. Well…mostly my dad’s. He was always too hard on me. They sent me to bootcamp when I was 13. To discipline the bad out of me. My first kiss was with a boy there…Charlie. He was the only thing that made that place tolerable…he made it worse, too, though. Not him, but…the bullying, getting beat up for it…getting called every possible slur, every dehumanizing thing you can imagine. I called home most nights crying…cried myself to sleep. Always crying.” “Santi…” “Sometimes I still think that was the worst time in my life…but then…” “What?” “Hey, uh…where’s Fiona? Is she here?” “No, she spends the weekends at my mother’s…why?” “You wanna take a drive? Let’s go somewhere. Anywhere.”

Okay but am I the only one who feels like Skam is building up a w/w storyline for Vilde? And am I the only one who is high key excited and praying that it’s going to happen?
I don’t know about you but the screenshots above really look like a timeline of someone having feelings that they are in denial about and refuse to accept. And it really seems like every time Vilde does express interest in boys, it is to prove something either to herself or to others. I don’t mean to taint the beauty that is Magnus and Vilde, but we did see Chris telling Vilde that she was jealous of her cos she doesn’t get any dick, and Vilde walking away with something to prove, declaring that she gets lots of dick.
But who knows maybe Skam won’t go there, but it would be such a shame to not take up an opportunity like this. I would die to see Skam portray what it is really like for girls dealing with internalised homophobia and coming out. What it’s like to like girls in a ‘dick centric’ society that builds it into our heads that women need men and the affection of boys to be considered truly feminine and beautiful (which is bullshit on it’s own) I honestly don’t know if i’m making any sense but I just feel like there are many issues in the w/w part of the LGBTQI community that I feel like has never been addressed before, But Skam would do it flawlessly.
I have faith in Bumbleby, and now that they’ve blatantly shown that Blake and Yang both took the SAME ship which is named “Pride”, I’m going to be confident in keeping that faith.
Because they didn’t have to send Yang over to Mistral on the SAME ship; nor did they have to have a deliberate scene where Yang is holding a picture that shows it’s called “Pride”; they could have just left all that out.
We all know foreshadowing is a big thing in RWBY. I’m just hoping THIS is what we have been waiting for, because it sure as hell seems like it.
