“Can we read this one?” Max asks, thrusting the book into Alec’s grip.

“Oh, well.” Alec’s hesitancy is evident in his voice, no matter how he tries to hold it back. “Are you sure you don’t want Hansel and Gretel?”

Max shakes his head.

“What about the Princess and the Pea?”

This only earns him a silent glare.

“Or Beauty and the Beast? I know that’s your favourite.”

Max pouts in an obvious sulk and Alec can sense the beginning of a headache just behind his eyes.

“Why won’t you ever read me this one?” There’s a shimmer of tears in his eyes now. “Everyone else gets to hear it. James says it’s the best one.”

Alec should have known. Max and James had become fast friends over the past few weeks and whatever James does Max will copy, whatever James likes Max now likes too. Sighing he settles down onto the bed beside Max, resting the book on the sheets between them.

“Once upon a time there were hunters blessed by angels that protected the world from monsters.” Alec begins.

Max is terrible listener, but for Alec it’s the best part of telling him a story. He’s always been this way, constantly interrupting and asking questions.

“Like Dad?” He asks when Alec introduces a warlock.

“Why doesn’t he marry the Warlock?” He demands when Alec tells him the Hunter has proposed to the new leader.

“This story is dumb.” He complains, arms crossed in frustration, when Alec begins to describe the wedding ceremony.

“What happened to them?” Max queries, as Alec finishes the last page.

“They lived happily ever after.” A voice from the doorway has both their heads turning, and there stands Magnus, leaning against the doorjamb a wistful look on his face.

“Forever?” Max yawns as Alec shifts off the bed to tuck him.

“Forever and ever.” Alec whispers, smoothing the hair from his forehead and placing a kiss there, he’s asleep before Alec finishes the words.

He walks over to Magnus, into the arm that’s outstretched and waiting for him. With one final glance back at Max he switches the light off.

“That’s my favourite fairy tale.” Magnus tells him.

“Mine too.”

For @asexualalexanderlightwood 

This is going to sound really dumb but Twist and Shout has ruined my life. Like everytime I see edits of it like that one where it has Dean and Cas and Cas is sittin there in the hospital bed and it had the flatline. Then like under it it had the lyrics to his favorite Elvis song. At first when I saw and posted it, I didn’t know what it meant bc I had never read the book at that point. I got a comment that said “Twist and Shout…” and I was like “Ive heard that before, is it a book?” And she was like “Yeah i recommend reading it.” So I did and it ruined my life. Anyway, everytime I see something like that I get real emotional like so emotional that I get close to fuckin balling my eyes out. Im pathetic but yeah I really want a relationship like that, the one in the book, i mean……. So yeah ok bye

Riverdale Origin Story.

Here it is, folks. It wanted by @just-mafe-g @bugheadjones-the-third and @ashsays.

I first saw an ad for Riverdale on the back on an Archie comic and was super excited. I’ve been reading Archie for quite a few years, so I was really excited for a tv adaption. Then I saw a Buzzfeed article comparing the characters to their comic book counterparts, and I saw Ms. Grundy’s and was instantly disgusted. It’s important to note that my mom read the comics as a little girl and I also told her about this article.

I still wasn’t completely not interested in Riverdale, so I started looking at pictures, stills, and gifs for it on Pinterest. And when I saw how much Cole Sprouse nailed Jughead I started watching it on my computer.

But we’re not done yet.

Because I’m anxious to please, and my mom didn’t like the idea of Riverdale, I kept it a secret. I felt like she was going to be mad at me if she knew I watched it. But because I can’t keep a secret and I felt so guilty that I literally dreamed of telling her about it. So I told her, and obviously she wasn’t mad, but she still didn’t like the idea of it. Until one day I was rewatching season one, and she came down and started watching it.

Now we watch it together.

Hi I really like your blog an all your headcanons, they're amazing!! But O was just wondering if Nora ever released Andrew's pov in the Baltimore scene? (or if it even exists, I'm not sure if it's just a rumour) (I very recently read the series)

while she didn’t write anything officially for it, she did answer some asks about it, which you can read here and here and here. (all the extra content for the books can be found here)

if you really want to read the baltimore scene from andrew’s pov please read baltimore blues by spanglebangle. it’s my one of my fav fics and does the scene more than justice! and it’s absolutely AMAZING.

Hi, I really want to learn Korean. I've been playing learning random words and a few sentences. I was wondering what apps or books you use to study it? Thanks :)

ypu prpbably dont want advice from me because im litterally the slowest person on earth but imo It’s really important to learn how to read Korean first because the romanization is absolute crap so I used Hangul by Tengulogi on the play store to learn pronunciation.
Then I had bought TTMIK beginer book. The app I use everyday is Memrise. I know a lot of people don’t like it bc it doesn’t teach grammar but imo the more you learn you just pick up on things naturally.

just followed this really good langblr ( @miharusblog ) for more grammar that I’ve been enjoying latelysomething else that’s been important to me is trying to read the lyrics to my favorite k-songs and watching kdrama with out subs. I hope that helps!


The full story of becoming a Swiftie.

It all started when I was about 9 years old. I was alone and had no friends, the reason why was because I was different than other boys. I did not like sports and my head was always stuck in a book. To be honest I don’t really know why I was bullied growing up, but what I do know is that it hurt a lot. That same year the most unthinkable thing happened… My parents got divorced and I was always a momma’s boy if you can say it like that. I loved her, but as I grew older the reality became shockingly clear that she did not love me the way a mother is supposed to love their child. So with all of the bullying going on and me not having friends and the me that lost my mother, I wanted to find something that made me feel less alone so I went to my sisters room, and there I found Taylor Swifts album Fearless the platinum edition. I went to my room, let it play and I instantly fell in love. Since then I loved her music because it told a story and then when speak now came out the prologue got stuck in my head, but certain pieces stood out for me. Pieces like: “Real life is a funny thing, you know. In real life, saying the right thing at the right moment is beyond crucial. So crucial, in fact, that most of us start to hesitate, for fear of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. But lately what I’ve began to fear more than that is letting the moment pass without saying anything” “There is a time for silence. There is a time waiting your turn. But if you know how you feel, and you so clearly know what you need to say, you’ll know it. I don’t think you should wait. I think you should speak now” And those words helped me through what I see as my toughest part of my life till today. You see all my life I have been bullied. I was called gay and a faggot and the people that said those things did not have the slightest clue that I was struggling with the fact that I am indeed gay. So some afternoons I would be at home, crying, and the I would put in one of Taylors albums and scream the lyrics at the top of my lungs and cry some more. It made me feel better. On the 23rd of August 2016 I came home with tears, because I was trying to accept the person I am. I then put on the song Change and read the prologues of all her albums leaving Speak Now for last and then that was the moment I knew that I needed to speak now and that was when I came out to my parents and the rest of this place. 

Taylor Swift saved me, and I am not over exaggerating.If it wasn’t for her music I would not be here today. I would not be the person I am today. Taylor’s music has helped me through dark times and I cannot thank her enough.

I love you Taylor.



2017 tbr meme

I’m pretending @lizziethereader tagged me because I wanted to do it hahah

So, obviously I’m hoping to finish the books I’m currently reading (Oathbringer, Lady of the Lake and la horde du contrevent) but I’d also like to manage:

  • The Amber spyglass
  • Lyra’s Oxford
  • La belle sauvage
  • Clockwork prince
  • The Lord of the rings trilogy
  • Small Gods
  • Men at arms
  • Name of the wind
  • Maskerade

That’s an ambitious list but I really want to manage it! (Even with that I’ll be a dozen books away from my 2017 new year’s list, whoops)

Some fanart for @ariastory-project to make them feel better for all the crazy things going on.

I’m really excited for this game! I honestly think Aria is going to be the friend that will recommend all her favorite books to Lewin… even though Lewin may not be as interested (I remember the Dev saying that they have different tastes as far as reading).

Thanks for the tag @lonepiper5758 :)

Look, speaking directly, I do not feel good about romantic displays of affection. Well, not while I'm being the target, the practitioner or even just watching some scene. However, I can read a scene like this, I can read it in books (duh) and also in HQs/doujinshis. I just, just wanted​ to know if ... if this is normal

Yeah, that’s totally normal, don’t worry. Sounds like you’re repulsed by romance, which is really common in aro-spec communities especially, but can exist in anyone. Romance repulsion can vary a lot, but being uncomfortable with romance in real life but less or not at all in fiction/books is really common too, because there’s a barrier when it comes to fiction that doesn’t exist in real life.

My own romance repulsion is actually really similar to this.

Just went to a secondhand bookshop near where I live (I could hear the siren call of books) and ended up in there for a couple hours. Belle would LOVE the secondhand bookshop–speaking of which, I came across some books written in Greek and of course all I could think of (and started laughing) was that line the prince says in Beauty and the Beast when Belle asks him if he’s really read every one of these books: “What? Pfft. Not all of them. Some of them are in Greek.” 

(Note, the Ancient Greece related books are in English lol!)

@tinydooms - all I could think of as well was how frustrated/exasperated Lumiere was getting in the bookshop when he, Belle, and Adam were visiting one in your fic. Imagine two hours of me walking around and trying to pick out the ones I wanted most (and keep it at around $100; it ended up $104 which was fine.)
