why everyone should read 'rivers of london'/'the peter grant series' by ben aaronovitch

• it has been described as “harry potter for adults” but only if harry potter had actual, decent diversity
• if you like the works of terry pratchett or neil gaiman, you’ll love it
• the main character is peter grant, a biracial london police officer who one day accidentally interrogates a ghost and things just kinda go a bit wild from here
• the goddesses of the rivers of london are p much all badass black women (these characters also inspired one of my favourite songs)
• sahra “muslim ninja” guleed, the woman who joined the police on a dare, is the best thing to ever happen to me
• lgbtq+ characters are never used for shock value or tokenised and are treated the same as the cis, straight characters
• there’s a muslim trans woman of colour who can fly!!!
• it’s told from peter’s pov and he constantly calls white people out on their shit i love him
• deals with themes of ethics and immortality
• it’s genuinely entertaining and the suspense is great and i love it
AND FINALLY
• harry potter would have been much better if, on his first day at hogwarts, harry said “fuck me, i can do magic”

When you think of purity, do not cast around for inspiration, but look within.

Happy birthday to my wonderful wifey Elly aka @stardustsam who is the most precious, pure existence in the world.

If you wait around in Valentine’s detective agency without speaking to Ellie, she’ll mention that she has photographs of Nick, and that “He never did photograph well”. 

Which gave me the idea for this picture - Don’t worry Ellie, Nick’ll be home soon!


I don’t usually work monochrome, but when I’d finished the shading I liked the atmosphere so much that I wanted to keep it black and white - its a bit different to my usual style but I hope you like it! It was a cool practice!

(If you can, please open in a new tab and enlarge, there are a lot of little details!)
