“She really likes–oh my god I mean he, I’m so sorry, I just don’t have it down yet, you need to give me time, I mean, I’m getting it, I promise, it’s just so hard sometimes, and I don’t even know where that came from, and I’m so sorry, I really didn’t mean to, you just have to go easy on me, I’ve never done this before, it’s just, I’m getting it, it won’t happen again, it’s just hard, you get it, right?”

Listen, mermaids are not usually my thing. I am pretty indifferent towards them in general, but I see a lot of you in my dash posting about mermaids, so I saw this novel and even though I have just started it and I can’t tell you if it’s going to be good or not, I feel it is my civic duty to tell you it exists. Ready?
Ice Massacre, by Tiana Warner.
A book about a little island at war with a growing colony of mermaids living in the waters around them. So they send warriors to fight them, but historically men don’t do very good against that mermaid lure magic thing they do, so they decide to send a ship full of highly trained girl warriors, and the protagonist is the one Useless Lesbian™
of the ship (who, by the way, also happens to be a lady of color, like most people in the island).
Like I said, mermaids are not my thing and I have only read a few chapters, but so far it is fast-paced and action-y, with a touch of fantasy. The kind of entertaining book you read fast and easy.
Sounds good? Happy to hear it. The paperback is fifteen dollars, but it’s literally less than a fucking dollar for Kindle right now and until July the 31st, because a sequel is coming out in two days and they are having a special offer.
Edit: I finished the novel and it was great fun, I basically demolished it in two days. Mostly lots of action (and it gets way more graphic than I expected it to) with a touch of reimagined folklore-ish fantasy. It’s the kind of lovely book you can just keep reading if you want to, and devour it in one go. If you are into fantasy YA, badass lady protagonists and mermaids, give it a go, I know many people around here will enjoy this a lot!
With Lotor... Okay, but our taste in fashion just rhymes so much and I bought everyone stuff. I even got you a shir-

“I guess, if I had to say a country star then…maybe Keith Urban? I don’t mean that in a flirtatious way. Keith’s just so talented and so good with a guitar. [He is] so in love with his wife, and well, that’s sexy.” - Carrie Underwood on who she thinks is the hottest county music star.
I have this random headcanon about the Captain Swan wedding, ok.
So Emma and Killian make up yadda yadda, the engagement is back on, and he has a long lovely talk with Charming to make amends and all is right in the Charming-Jones world.
They get married and everyone (read: me) cries and it’s beautiful and wonderful and True Love Forever.
But then it’s the wedding reception. And while Killian and Emma and her family are all fine, whispers still persist following the drama that happened around the engagement and Killian’s disappearance. Gossip quietly tinges the party with the “well I heard he left her” and “no no no she kicked him out” and “well he killed her grandfather, I can’t believe David and Snow allowed this to happen” etc etc etc.
And it’s probably someone like fucking Grumpy running his dumb mouth after too many beers when all of the sudden
A fork jabs down, perfectly in between his fingers that rest on top of the table.
Based on @ikkakujuu‘s analysis and @yoonicidal‘s analysis on KS’s colour meanings I’d like to say a little thing. Going to do it under the cut in case you haven’t read the new chapter. I read them on Lezhin
R u kidding me. Riley…. How do I even begin to explain Riley. Riley is flawless. He has two weed stashes and a hydrogenerator. I hear his hair’s insured for $10,000. I hear he does car commercials…On the Ground. One time he met Clarke in Farm Station…And she told him he was pretty. One time he punched me in the face. It was awesome.
So I’ve been thinking, and we all know how most of the demigods don’t have a good parental figure in their life
And then there’s Sally Jackson, who, let’s be real, is the kind of person to look after all of them
Just imagine Annabeth being all nervous on her first dinner there as Percy’s girlfriend because Sally isn’t just her friend’s mom, it’s her boyfriend’s mom now
But of course Sally makes her feel at ease straight away by joking around with her and taking sides with her against Percy playfully
And pretty much from then on Sally is the mother she never had, because Annabeth loves Sally, and they spend days together doing the kind of things neither of them would ever do with Percy like going shopping
Just imagine Jason coming over for dinner sometimes and Sally hugging him hello and goodbye, and Jason has never, ever been given a hug by someone so comforting, and he can close his eyes and pretend he has a mother
And think about Sally helping Piper out with the cooking because they both love creating new dishes and just having so much fun
And Piper’s never got much affection or just been able to spend a normal day with her father, the best she got is Jane taking her to McDonald’s to buy her lunch, and she just cannot stop smiling
And Hazel, oh my gods, Hazel is so confused about modern life at first (of course) and sometimes she can’t help but feel out of place
But Sally just understands, she gently helps Hazel get used to everything, because I think sometimes we forget Hazel is thirteen and has never had a proper parental figure, and Sally gives her that
Imagine Sally reminding Leo of his own mom
Like obviously not the building things or anything, but just the way Sally goes the extra mile to make people feel better, or by just always smiling at people, and referring to them affectionately
Leo pretends like he doesn’t really care that much, but deep down he loves it
At first Frank is really shy around Sally, especially the first time when Percy invites him over
And obviously Sally can tell, so she doesn’t push it or anything
Slowly Frank gets more and more comfortable around her, especially after that time Sally helped him plan a date with Hazel and it’s pretty much the best date either of them go on
And eventually it comes to the point where if any of them have a problem or they are just feeling down, it doesn’t even matter if Percy’s there or not, they can just go talk to Sally, and she is always willing to help
Just generally imagine all the demigods loving Sally and she is able to give them what so many of them have never had
And just think of Percy seeing all of this and being so happy because he knew it all along: he has the best mother in the whole entire world
