you know, call me crazy, call me biased af, but i just think it’s bullshit that we get all these sappy, ridiculous climon scenes and malec can’t even finish a goddamn conversation without someone walking in…and demanding, once again, that magnus fix their problems.
your mc is your mc. you can make them whoever you want to; they can be who you are physically or the opposite, they can be straight, they can be gay, they can be mean, they can be helpful, they can have your name, they can have the name of your best friend, they can date interracially, they can decide not to date at all, they can date four people at once, they just cannot have sex for any less than 30 diamonds
…I hate myself. I feel like an idiot saying it because, blah, blah, teen angst, boo hoo, but I do. I hate myself. Almost all the time. I try not to tell anyone because I don’t want to burden them, but I feel like I’m falling farther and farther away from them.

Not everyone has to be the Chosen One. Not everyone has to be the guy who saves the world. Most people just have to live their lives the best they can, doing things that are great for them, having great friends, trying to make their lives better, loving people properly. All the while knowing that the world makes no sense but trying to find a way to be happy anyway.
“Here’s what I think,” Regine says, lighting a cigarette. “I think I’m the only real thing I’ve got, except maybe Tommy. Even here, in this place, because who’s to say this isn’t some simulation, too, some other level we’ll wake up from. But wherever I am, whatever this world is, I’ve just got to be sure I’m me and that’s what’s real.” She blows out a cloud of smoke. “Know yourself and go in swinging. If it hurts when you hit it, it might be real, too.”

the fandom: well yeah okay that’s great but how about most wanted 2? a TC&TF sequel? hero 2?? historical fiction/sci fi??? more fantasy, horror and mystery in general because not everyone likes romance all that much and the only mystery/horror books we have are probs ending soon?????
