“He couldn’t tell if he was letting himself idolize this place or Ronan, and he wasn’t sure there was a difference. When he opened his eyes, he saw that Ronan was looking at him, as he had been looking at him for months. Adam looked back, as he had been looking back for months.”

so I’ve played a lot of fallout 4 this month and I love listening to the radio in fallout games but after a while the songs started to get tedious cuz it was just the same ones over and over again so I made a playlist that’s like, 400 fifties jams of various genres and listened to that, but THEN I started to miss Travis on Diamond City Radio (I mean I did the quest to make him awesome I should reap the benefits!) so what I did was go on YouTube and find a video of just all his voice clips and I segmented them into separate MP3 files so once in a while when I play on shuffle he’ll cut in and do his DJ thing and then back to Billie holiday. and I’ll literally add new ones to the playlist when I finish their corresponding quests and shit. anyways.

Please, leave my character alone and let me play them. I suppose you are
trying to be nice and supportive, but. Stop. Don’t send me YOUR
faceclaims for them. Don’t send me the playlists you made for them, of
music I have time and again told you I don’t like and listen to. Don’t
make aesthetic posts for them, ignoring any physical description I have
ever given. Don’t send me random posts that are “lol so them”. They are
not. Please, stop
I made a playlist for Lucifer Morningstar/John Constantine. Because trapping them in a car won’t end in someone dying while the blues play ominously on a half-broken car radio.

As part of my mission to learn how to use tumblr and use it more, I’ve decided to dedicate some posts to writing about the works of art that have inspired me most throughout my life. It’s sort of a tribute. Sort of an opportunity to reminisce. And sort of a way to be personal on a social media platform, without being TOO personal. So here goes. My first post on this subject is the book, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” by Stephen Chbosky.
This book saved my life when I was a teenager. I read this book before I was diagnosed with certain mental health disorders, and it spoke volumes to me even before I fully understood why. To this day, the quote, “And in that moment, I swear we were infinite” is my email footer. I would read the suicide note/poem over and over again. I made mixed CDs for myself of the playlists in the book (back in the days of Napster when downloading music was free and easy). I even wrote a letter to Mr. Chbosky (see attached) asking his permission to adapt his book into a screenplay. Granted, I was like 15 years old, and I had written maybe one, maybe none screenplays in my life. He was kind enough to respond, explaining that he was already in the process of writing a screenplay adaptation and that he intended to direct the movie himself. That was maybe a decade prior to the movie being released.
That letter from Mr. Chbosky sits on my desk. I’m looking at it now. The last line reads, “Considering how lovely you seem in your letter, I think your movies would be very special.” And I’ll admit, I read the letter when I’m lacking motivation or purpose or inspiration. And the teenager still inside of me wants to write good stories and make good movies partly so I don’t let him down. So someday, maybe he’ll see one of my movies and he’ll tell me it was “very special” and I can be like, “You’ve told me that before.”
Anyway, this is my favorite book of all time. I’m not here to write a synopsis or a review of it. I’m just emoting and reminiscing. And I think that’s all I’ve got to say about it now.
