Cryptocracy is the best scifi action-comedy about gay space pirates battling both Earth Fascism and Space Fascism you’ll read all week!! You can trust me on that, I wrote the damn thing!!
Whether you’re reading for the first time or engaging in a long overdue reread, I decided it would be to everyone’s benefit to have a one-stop shop for all chapters of the book!! This is the entire book, and as always, it is provided for free at no cost to you!! Please read this book, and don’t forget to share this post with your friends!!
Honestly, I love Warbreaker so damned much probably because I adore that trope where one person is like “I have to find a way to rescue my loved one who is probably being tortured and in so much pain right now!”
and then you cut to the person they are trying to rescue and they’re having a Fantastic time and living it up
The first words that rise above your cloudy thoughts find their answer immediately, eyes slowly opening as they grow accustomed to the colors, too bright, too vibrant. Almost resonating in your ears, the images twirl in seamless waves, gradually forming shapes and lines as you blink repeatedly.
The world unveils right in front of you, and even though the scenery feels familiar, there’s something outlandish about it, about the way the people walk and speak and laugh, as if the world that you used to hold between your fingers was snatched right out of your hands. You feel like an intruder, like a watcher of the humans that walk past you without giving you a second glance.
You suppose that in some way, you are a watcher. The memories you hold of the afterlife are faint and blurry, as if coming back to the human world made them break into tiny pieces, glimpses of unearthly shapes and colors. You still managed to hold onto some small remnants of the other world, words and fuzzy reflections forming in your mind as you try to recall the conversations you had with the ethereal beings, whose faces you’re unable to remember.
So I’m rereading The Stone Rose before I write my next installment of Through Time and Space, and while I’ve read it before, it’s been a while, and it’s reminding me just how much they cut out of the audio version, which I’ve listened to several times.
THEY ARE IDIOTS AND NEED TO JUST GET A ROOM ALREADY.
Growing up in a small town in Kansas, Dean learned from a young age that there was only one rule that couldn’t be broken, one place he couldn’t go - through the forest, to the long-abandoned Angel’s Hollow. But when Sam disappears, Dean’s left with no choice but to follow his brother’s tracks through the dangers of the wood; little does he know that the most dangerous creature of all lurks not among the trees, but in the Hollow itself. Dean sets Sam free, at the cost of his own liberty - and, bound by magic, resigns himself to living out the rest of his days in the Hollow, at the mercy of the being within. The angel of Angel’s Hollow, however, has a story - is a prisoner, too, as much as Dean is. Only one thing can free them both - but it is impossible. For, after all: who could ever learn to love a beast?
Request: I would love a Bucky smut where he and reader have to go undercover as a married couple.
Summary: You were supposed to go on an undercover mission with Steve, not the man you despised- James Buchanan Barnes.
Warnings: smut, slight angst
A/N: This was the first attempt for an old request that I ended up writing a whole different story for and I reread what I had written and decided I didn’t actually hate it. So, I finished it and thought I’d post it. Here you go! Also, it’s 5:09 in the morning, I haven’t gone to bed yet, and I just finished writing this so I do apologize if anything is incoherent. Enjoy!
“You’ve got to be shitting me, Steve! I am not going on the mission with him.” You pointed at Bucky, dropping your bag to the ground.
“Nat needs me on a mission with her, (Y/N), you two will get along fine.” He smiled and rested his hands on your shoulders. “I swear, it’ll be a painless mission. Just pretend you’re a married couple attending the wedding, alright?”
“I can’t pretend to be married to him! He’s an ass!” You backed out of Steve’s grasp, frustrated that you knew there was no other option. “Damn it, Steve.” You sighed.
“Please, (Y/N).” He shot you his famous puppy dog eyes and pouted his lip.
“Fine, but you fucking owe me one.” You picked up your bag and pushed passed him, avoiding eye contact with Bucky as you approached the Quinjet.
“I thought Steve was going on the mission with you…” Clint spun around in the pilot’s seat, looking worryingly between the two of you.
“Steve’s out helping Nat with a mission, he asked me to take his place.” Bucky flashed a smile at Clint.
“Fair enough.” Clint turned, starting the engine.
You were fuming. You hated Barnes; the two of you couldn’t be in the same room together for more than five minutes without chewing each other out. Barnes was just going to complicate things, he was going to ruin the mission.
“Be safe you guys!” Clint called to the two of you as you stepped out of the jet, and started walking into the airport terminal. You thanked Clint for having an inside friend at the airport, allowing him to land there and not in some random field.
most of these have already been recommended here, but never emphasized, and probably hard to navigate in that huge masterpost so i decided to make a post about them (tho mostly cuz i reread most of them recently and i was not disappointed) for all your quick death note cravings:
ONE SHOTS focusing on Light Yagami as an individual, his FAMILY and CHILDHOOD (NOT LAWLIGHT):
Whoever wants to be tagged in my Dating Peter Parker, like and or reblog now.
After an anon had requested a Dating Peter Parker (I actually already had it written up, was just waiting in the queue for next week) I went back to proof read because I reread over and over again. And then I decided to add a fuckton of stuff. It’s gonna be great, perhaps one of the better things I’ve done.
SO, wanna be notified? Press that heart or arrow or even write a comment.
I’ve been a bookworm for a good part of my life. And for most of my childhood, when my parents took me to the store with them, If I found a book I was interested in, they would buy it for me.
Now, one day back when I was 12, I was looking through the book section of a grocery store, and I come across a certain book. This book to be exact…
I read the description on the back, and it sounded intriguing enough, so I asked my mom to buy it for me. She did, and I started reading it a few days later.
There were parts in there that were shocking to 12 year old me (I’m talking rape, incest, and murder, on top of the obvious child abuse) and it made me very uncomfortable. I did not read the rest of the series.
My copy had been sitting in my room for a while now, and I recently decided to reread it. Having read it before, combined with the fact that I’m now a 19 year old horror fan, it did not have the same effect that it did on me back then. But I did have one thought.
“Mom would have freaked if she knew what I was reading.”
I ended up bringing this up to her while we were talking on a road trip over the summer, and ended up getting a surprise.
She knew exactly what was in the book, due to the controversy that had surrounded it back in the 80′s (and for obvious reasons, still does today, just to a lesser extent)
I asked her why she let me read it knowing about the content, and she told me
“Because I knew if I said no, you’d probably find a way to read it anyways.”
And really, she was right. I probably would have gotten a library copy and read it at night when I wouldn’t get caught.
I think that this is something that a lot of people don’t get. Telling someone “Don’t read/watch that because it’s bad” isn’t really going to stop anyone.
If anything, It’s only going to make the person more curious.
So if you truly dislike something, the best thing to do is ignore it, or use it as an opportunity for conversation, rather than just shouting people down for the media they choose to consume.
