i wanna do more stuff like this

anonymous asked:

If you have the time and if you don't mind, what are some books you really recommend? Doesn't have to be all time faves, but anything that pops into mind that you want more ppl to read and love, Extra points if lgbt+ , i got the whole summer with little to do and i wanna spend it reading some good quality writing and honestly so far your recs have introduced me to so many faves its unbelievable

[blushes profusely] oh wow, thank you!!!  i’m so glad you’ve trusted me enough to check out some of the stuff i reblog; that is like the ultimate compliment, i can’t even???  i don’t mind at all(!), fair warning though: i only started recording what i read partway through last year and my mind is like a sieve so i’ll do my absolute best to remember what’s sang to me in the recent past.  warning number two: i’m in an open relationship with absolutely every genre out there so i’ll try to note which belongs where so you can avoid those that hold no interest for you.

LGBT+

  • i’ll give you the sun.  i loved this book, the writing is fucking transformative and all the characters are so damn likable, while still being realistically flawed human beings.
  • the raven cycle (tetralogy).  definitely my favorite series since harry potter.  the writing, the world-building, the characters, it’s all on top-form.  i wrote a little, mini non-spoilery review of it: here, back when i was better (worse?) wordly-wise and my feels were brand new.
  • more happy than not.  i’m still not sure how i feel about this book.  it was hard, but it felt very true to the characters and the lingo and style matched the ages of the players and i have a lot of respect for that.
  • the watchmaker of filigree street.  woooow i loved this book.  i admit ‘historical fiction’ kind of makes me cringe.  it never precludes me from reading a book but it does knock it down the list by a book or five because they’re often very dense and very clunky and end up taking me ages to get through.  but this one was gorgeous.  i loved the plot, the attention lovingly placed on every character and the historical elements.  the surprise gay in an already brilliant book felt like winning the lottery honestly.
  • captive prince (trilogy).  okay, truthfully, i’m only putting this on here because the second book is such a high point for me.  it was never bad at any point but it had unfortunately been hyped far too much for it to live up to my, admittedly, very high expectations.  hopefully it’ll fare better with you?
  • everything i never told you.  i go back and forth on this one.  i like the writing a lot, i like the LGBT aspect a lot, and i like the mystery aspect a lot but there are definitely characters i would cut out entirely for sheer predictability if i could and that killed a lot of my enjoyment at the time (but i think much more highly of it in retrospect?).  so, take that as you like.
  • aristotle and dante discover the secrets of the universe.  if there’s a book that handles its characters with more care or respect or consideration then i haven’t run into it.  i love the way this is written and the people it’s populated with.
  • flying lessons & other stories.  a bunch of uber talented authors writing a bunch of uber diverse and LGBT-focused stories and, yes, that is exactly as awesome as it sounds.
  • the song of achilles.  it is utterly heart-breaking but so rich, honestly.

FANTASY

  • the diviners.  (also has a minor LGBT character, who may play a bigger role in the sequel?)  fair warning, i have not read the sequel, lair of dreams, because it is somehow still not out in paperback (yes, i read physical books, yes, i pretty exclusively read paperbacks so i can lug them everywhere with me, YES, I PRE-ORDERED THIS ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO AND IT’S STILL NOT OUT, NOT THAT I’M BITTER ABOUT THAT OR ANYTHING) so i can’t speak to that one finishing on a high note as i don’t know.  but this was the first historical novel i managed to like in a long while.  it does such a good job of fusing in 1920s lingo and dress and aspects that i couldn’t help but love it.  add in the fantasy elements and i can admit i’m the perfect sucker for it.
  • the scorpio races.  i’m not sure why but it took me a long-ass time to get into this book, i wasn’t flipping pages with gusto until well towards the end but - especially as i was reading so much YA at the time - i really appreciated coming across a romance that lets both people come into it as themselves and stay themselves, neither puck nor sean were ever smashed or crumpled or shaved away to fit into their relationship, which was so refreshing.  plus the water horses were fucking cool.
  • the night circus.  the writing, the atmosphere, the circus.  just… it is all very whoa.
  • all the birds in the sky.  i loved this writing style and these characters and the magical elements.

CONTEMPORARY

  • i’ll meet you there.  there was something about this and i just… ended up liking it way more than i expected to.  i might’ve just read it at exactly the right time, i’m not sure, but i really enjoyed it.
  • the invoice.  this is honestly just hella cute and so freaking surreal.  swedes, man.

NON-FICTION

  • why not me?  i like mindy kaling a lot.  i make no apologies for that.  plus you can read both her books in about five seconds, haha.

SCIENCE FICTION

  • station eleven.  i loved this book.  the way the narrative is woven is so refreshing and i wish the comic book miranda was writing in this book was a real thing more than anything else in the woooorld.
  • illuminae.  hot DAMN this book was cool.  the plot was rock solid, the characters were hilarious and badass and the graphics made out of text and spiraling words and just the way this thing is put together?  shit, it’s worth your money and then some.
  • a robot in the garden.  okay this is just cute as hell.  i can’t even with tang, he’s the most adorable robot to ever adorable.
  • annihilation (southern reach trilogy).  (LGBT minor characters.)  okay, honestly?  i don’t know.  this was freaking zany but i was invested as fuck in all the kookiness for reasons i can’t articulately elaborate on.
  • the martian.  hilarious, engaging, SPACE.  what more do you want?

HORROR

  • things we lost in the fire.  this is more atmospheric than anything but, damn, could this get me wishing i wasn’t reading this in the dark or looking over my shoulder to make absolutely sure no one was standing behind me.  it’s a book of short stories (by the way, i love books of short stories and i definitely realize that is not true for everyone) and each one is so well-delivered and stylized.  i really enjoyed reading this.
  • let the right one in.  okay, this is legit horror so definitely stay away if you’re easily squicked out but it is harrrrrd to find good horror (at least in my opinion) and this definitely, definitely qualifies.
  • horrorstör.  i honestly had such low expectations for this, a horror story set in a wannabe-ikea, but it ended up being so ridiculous and strange and funny that i was won over by the finish.
  • the girl with all the gifts.  holy unique and well-executed zombie idea, batman!

SHORT STORIES

  • the bigness of the world.  there were definitely ones here that hit better than others but the ones i liked, i really liked!

GRAPHIC NOVELS (i read a lot of these so, um, prepare yourself)

  • saga.  (LGBT minor characters as well.)  this is world-building to a degree that i’m convinced did not exist before.  just, i can’t say enough amazing things about this series and the staggering amount of imagination that regularly goes into it.
  • ms. marvel.  heart-warming as fuck.  it’s definitely really easy to lose faith in the world these days, luckily kamala is there to remind you that people are primarily and genuinely good.
  • black science.  this is another one that took just an insane amount of imagination to cook up.  i got off to kind of a rocky start with this one but the gray-ness of all the characters really speaks to me, and that doesn’t really blossom until later in the series.
  • spider-man/deadpool.  this was very satisfying for my super duper spideypool-shipping mind.  joe and ed did us so good, and joe basically said in his sign-off: i made it absolutely as gay as they would let me, haha.
  • the wicked + the divine.  (LGBT minor characters that you’re going to get way too attached to, and retroactively.  it’s awful [sobs].)  the concept for this, gods reincarnating into teenagers before they burn up their hosts after a predetermined set of time, is so fucking cool.  the humor and the characters and the plot is all just aces.
  • iceman (LGBT MAIN CHARACTER).  okay, so this just started.  like issue #2 was only released days ago but 1) i am liking it so far and 2) marvel did it so dirty and barely advertised bobby - an openly homosexual superhero - was getting his own series, like, i found out about it the day before it went on sale and i keep my ear fairly close to the ground (not as close as some BY A LOT, but closer than the lay person i’d say) so if you can support it, please do!  pre-orders mean a lot in terms of numbers. :))))
  • descender.  admittedly, this starts out rooough.  because the main character, TIM-21 (and his little dog too), are annoying as hell.  he’s an android so there’s no dimension to him so he’s booooring as all get out but i am so glad i stuck with it through to the next trade because, probably picking up on the unsustainability of him as a main character, he gets shuffled off and the side characters get the stage and they rock so hard.
  • paper girls. (LGBT main characters.)  i’m kind of just convinced that brian k. vaughan can do no wrong at this point.  his plots are so tight and mind-blowing and badass.
  • monstress.  here’s a little tid-bit about me: female comic book writers are 100% more likely to get my money and my time because they are so damn rare and this series is unique, badass, and eye-opening.
  • black monday murders.  i’m a little premature with this since there’s only one volume and i usually try to wait until there are at least two but i check up on a volume two a lot so that definitely means something intrigued me!
  • nailbiter.  okay, i haven’t read the final volume yet ‘cause i’m reluctant to let it go but, so far, a series about multiple serial killers all being from the same town has me VERY HOOKED.

i wish i could remember more but this is honestly way better than i expected to do, haha.  they’re definitely not all my all-time faves but they’re ones that have stuck with me for one reason or another and that i didn’t feel i wasted my time on, so that’s something, right?  i hope this helps get you started and that you don’t think too awfully of me when you inevitably run across ones that aren’t your cup of tea!

omg you guys my likes section is almost EXCLUSIVELY mad sweeney

i………………………………love him so much and AG was so satisfying BUT IT TOO IS OVER

that being said, i’m still going to spend most of the summer doing American Gods work, because it was so refreshing. after the wringer spn put me through, i really was trying to make mountains out of molehills. i do have a few spn comic ideas to get to, tho!

SO IN REGARDS TO SPN CONS I’M WORKING! my plans for the rest of the year (which are subject to change, but this is the basic overview!) are:

  • CHICAGO, IL JULY 14-16
  • MINNEAPOLIS, MN AUG. 25-27
  • PITTSBURGH, PA SEPT. 8-10
  • NEW ORLEANS, LA OCT. 27-29
  • WASHINGTON, DC NOV. 10-12

sanfran might still be on the table, but it’s a bit too far off to tell right now. i love seeing everyone’s faces with my traveling comic show HOWEVER i might need a month to get my bearings at some point :’)

anyway here’s that gif of me with my cat band again

yall ok listen

i wanna write this fic called 100 things to do after you die and its either gonna be
a. a rewrite of the show thats better written and has better character development and a thicker plot and stuff
b. a collection of sorta oneshots thats just little things like ,,,, danny talking to citizens and just being a smoll lil ghost

i wont be writing this for a lil bit bc im still working on ffak ((for those of u that may be wondering where the heCk that went, my ocd kicked in and im currently rewriting it with more detail and trying to slow down the plot n stuff)) so honestly i just need some feedback on what yall want bc i wouldnt mind writing either but like the a option would have to be thought out and updated regularly whereas the b option would be updated more sporadically u know

feedback ! would ! be ! so ! nice !! thank u for reading this god bless u

Yo while I really appreciate all the new followers I’ve gotten recently, I wanna just say thank you to everyone who decided to stick with me through all these years. I see you there, guys, thanks for still caring for my shitty art ♥ Fucking love you a lot right now ngl, I managed to get really emotional looking through some old stuff.

I feel like people used to message me a lot and I’d do silly sketches and fun stuff and now I have zero interaction with people and it brings me down a little, number of my followers might have gone up but people never approach me anymore ;_;

I guess I just wanna say I want to be a bit more social here, and that I’m not particularly scary, so if anyone ever wants to hit me up for some chatting or any questions, please please do!

New Event Announcement

Yo what’s up it’s your home boy, Romeo, coming at you with news and bad humor

I regret that intro

Anyway:

There is not enough love for my husband. At all. There will be more. I will make more.

Now you may say “Romeo how are we gonna do that?”

If you have to ask who my husband is (coughitsaphscotlandcough) you must have like, just followed my blog

Anyway, mate, I have a Plan™

I wanna be that fun and cool blog, but guess what? I’m not fun. Or cool. So I’m gonna make it cool, and fun.

Every Wednesday, starting this Wednesday, 28, June, 2017 (time stamp for when this becomes historically documented), will be dedicated to My Boy™ Alistair (yes thats still aphscotland) and every Wednesday after

“What are you gonna call it, Romeo?”

No idea. I’m only witty at roasts and sometimes blog names. For now I’ll call it ’#aph scotland day’ in the tags

“Why Wednesday?”

Because it’s the middle of the week and I feel like that’s when people need Relief™

“Whoa Romeo that’s pretty ballsy, what if no one participates?”

Listen, son, there are 1,007 of you. Someone better participate or what’s the point in following me? At least three people are gonna say something (idk about the other 1,004). Plus I have inside sources >:)

“What are gonna expect us to do, Romeo Senpai uwu”

Don’t ask about the senpai bit. This may or may not be a draft from 2 am.

• Send me requests

• Send me headcanons

• Give me feels

• Donate your first born to me

• Share your emotions

• Send. Me. Requests.

• Submit posts! Art, links, whatever

• sEnD mE sTuFf

“What are you gonna do?”

I’ll reblog stuff and write stuff. I really need you guys to send stuff though I mean that’s how a blog works, babes.

“Are there rules for sending?”

HAHAH heCK YEah there are:

• NO N/SFW FFS

• I accept s/o asks now but if I get none then idk if I’ll keep accepting them. I know how popular demand works AND YOU GUYS HAVE NO DEMAND FOR SOME REASON

• Angst is allowed. Torture me. Make me cry. I love crying.

• Have 👏🏻 fun 👏🏻 doing 👏🏻 it 👏🏻

I think that’s it? If anyone has any questions please send me an ask. ASKS. My PM notifs are broken so your question may not be answered til it’s too late.

-Romeo x

Mod Ying wanna do some Ying x Maeve headcanons for mod Monday? :3

Y E S. I’ve gotten like 2 asks for this but I was lazy. This isn’t really Mod Monday stuff, though!

- They’re super cuddly! Maeve kind of just lounges on Ying, using her as a human pillow. 

- Picture this: Ying see’s Maeve stealing something and begins scolding her while Maeve laughs. 

- Ying can talk freely to Maeve! Ying rants to her all the time and knows Maeve will never tell anyone her secrets. 

- Whenever Maeve hears about someone bothering Ying, she will full on stalk and scare that person. If you catcall Ying on the street, be prepared to die. 

- Super clingy! Maeve gets lonely very fast and Ying does too, so they’re almost never apart.

- Ying goes crazy when Maeve is hurt and works day and night to heal her. Maeve is her priority!

Hints, hints! More hints! eXCITE! Drew these two together this time! I also put some green lights in there this time but I reaaaally gotta work on my shading with em! >:0

Also, I really wanna give Anti/ Jack a cool yet very shitty wardrobe in this comic! Hit me with funny ‘n’ offensive quotes y’all! This fictional character man dude bro needs ugly ass shirts! 

Also, listening to Imagine Dragons while drawing was a good idea! :D

Anyway, hope you like it! C:

Pls do not do the reposty stuff, thankers!

like I have such big dreams and I wanna do so much with my life??? sometimes I forget about that and day to day life has me being lazy and most of them time I’m trying to just watch Netflix but y'all…I have such big dreams and I wanna do so much?? I have just woken up!! no more slacking. I’m back and I’m going to do something w/ my life. no more of this should have stuff. I’m here to live and live and live and love.

they just remind me of Spongebob and Patrick, it suits pretty well

Ink by @comyet

Error by @loverofpiggies

(i guess idea might be a little inspired by @puffrisk (??))

fighting fish

i hadnt drawn these 3 together so i had to change that !!

More fan art! This is my fan art blog (mostly) after all… Well, have you seen Villainous? What do you think? I’m pretty proud it’s Mexican (I’m not Mexican btw I’m Latinoamerican - Chile if you wanna be specific) and I hope it will become more popular when it airs on Cartoon Network LA.

So, Dr Flug! I think it’s my favourite character so far. I like shy cuties and masked people plus he has to be smart to create that stuff so he’s pretty much perfect. I dressed him as Black Hat because I like his outfit haha. Pretty sure BH is gonna be angry about it.

I have an excuse to write in Spanish as well! He says: do you think I look good? Yes, yes, of course.

Anyways thanks for the support people! Soon I will install a Ko-fi button!
