Secret’s Out

A/N: What’s that? I have an essay due tomorrow and I shouldn’t be wasting my time writing fics about children from a horror movie? Pfft idk what you’re talking about.

Syn: Richie seems to do a lot of things that end up with him getting wrecked. You’d think he’d learn after it happening so many times, unless….

Word count: 930

It was the little things that made Eddie wonder if Richie wasn’t telling him something. The way he’d always put his hands behind his head and didn’t lower them no matter how many times you poked his sides. How he’d put his feet in your lap and keep them still even if you’d drag your fingers over his soles. Or how he’d tickle you, remove his glasses, and “accidentally” leave himself as vulnerable as possible. All things you’d probably want to avoid doing if you don’t want the snot tickled out of you, unless…

pretty sure by now that fics ruined published novels for me. not because they’re bad, but rather because the quality of some of them is so damn astounding that actual published authors just wind up letting me down

baby, there’s a shark in the water pt. 3 (final)

note: i want to thank everyone who has left comments and supported this mini series. this was intially suppose to be a one-shot but you guys kept me motivated and also inspired me to make it longer. sadly this is the finale and I hope you guys will still enjoy this last piece, happy reading!

It was like he vanished into thin air. No one knew where Brian Kang had disappeared to, not even the teachers. There were rumors of him being expelled and harsh words that he might have been locked up. All which made you worry like crazy, it hurt your heart knowing that you were the last person to see him. 

Keep reading

Like to have seen expanded: I've never understood why in the books especially (since the show hasn't gotten this far yet), why since Claire's only reminder of Jamie is Bree, why their relationship is so fractured? I mean as an avid reader, I was really expecting their growth together to be a super bond that was akin to being able to read each other's thoughts and finish each other's sentences. But, I was sadly disappointed. I just didn't expect their bond to be so taken for granted.

I’m definitely looking forward to see Claire and Bree together too, especially once Bree accepts the truth of what Claire was telling her in the season two finale and they can finally be like truly open and honest. And all the feels around them thinking they only have that brief time together in their new state of being because when Claire leaves, they both think they’ll never see each other again. *grabby hands*

But like, I can kind of see why Claire was a little distant while Bree was growing up? (I’m not making excuses for her, just trying to understand where she was coming from.) Like Bree reminded her of Jamie but Claire couldn’t tell her that because of her promise to Frank, and keeping all those feelings and memories and all the stuff she wishes she could tell her daughter all bottled up and shoved deep down so they don’t consume her would probs result in her being a bit distant. Plus the added angst of the flip side of things, that Jamie couldn’t know his daughter or help raise her. Like, I can definitely see how Claire would be or would be perceived to be distant. But even if that’s the case, I don’t doubt for a second that Claire loves Bree. It’s complicated and messy. *grabby hands*

I was really glad to hear in one of the SDCC interviews that they changed the letter Claire left for Bree before she goes back through the stones to an actual conversation between the two of them. I’m *really* looking forward to seeing that. *grabby hands*

hey erin :) you probably got asked this question a million times, but what is your favorite Clexa fanfic??? (or favoritessss) i want to read one :) i dc if it is a au or not, i just want a well written, interesting and good fanfic :D I LOVE your blog btw ! i've been following you since 2 years ago :) much love

Wow! thank you for following me for so long and the kind words about my blog!! And I honestly have the memory of a gnat when it comes to fanfic/books. lol. My brain just can’t really retain written stories well – where i’m only reading words. I’m very much a visual learner/rememberer.  

The ones that stand out to me as some of the ones that I remember I really liked were: Our Hearts (Have Minds Of Their Own)this heart, fossilized and silent (once was tender and once was violent), Waiting for Love to Strikemy worst enemy, my sweetest addictionWithin Me An Invincible SummerBare My Soul  

basically, if you sort via “kudos” in Ao3 you’ll find good fics to start reading.

Where did you read about Pucas?? I've only ever heard it before once in a book called War for the Oaks (I think?) and I'm always looking for more book recs!

the Spiderwick Chronicles had one!! I don’t remember which book but ya that’s where I first heart of em and fell in love

Since we are on the subject of Astral lives, have you ever gotten warnings from those that apply to physical life? I've had several and I'm curious if you or anyone else has as well. Also, if you do write a book about Astral lives I'd be excited to read it. I love the subject.

i wouldnt say i’ve gotten warnings per se, connections between the astral and the physical realm on any level have been fairly rare for me. 

the only instance i can think of  is once i slept with a tarot deck under my pillow and upon dreaming, i found myself in a curious old mansion that led down into an antique store, and i could feel the deck’s presence?manifestation?personality as the spirit of the house. there was a cabinet and i opened it up, and there was a real fancy tarot deck inside. though there was no one there, in the dream i was under the impression that they used to belong to someone, and that their spirit was present, and almost encouraging me to take them. everything was alright when i did, but then i tried to take the pouch which was for holding them, and it got angry. but then i asked and it let me take it. it was kind of a short interaction but it’s set how i interact with that particular deck. 

besides that i dont know if i have enough to write about when it comes to astral lives, especially since so much of what you find in it is moulded by one’s personal experiences. i can’t even imagine how to explain the way things were constructed to people who knew the places that were sort of blended together, or the new meaning they took on.

I'm so fucking sad and aggravated with my life I feel like i can't get out of this. I need to get a job I'm going to be 20 this year and I'm in college but my fucking depression won't leave me alone long enough. I haven't left my house or seen the only friend I ended high school with for a week and it's driving me insane and I've looked up medication for this but everything has bad side effects and heaven knows I can't deal with bad weight gain anyway sorry I just needed to rant

The thing is everyone struggles with something in silence.
Therefore you are not alone. It’s okay to let it out once in a while.
Try to take baby steps.
Depression is hard to fight but there are ways to improve your mood.
When was the last time you read a book that you loved? What’s your favourite band/artist?
Try and take a hot bath. Add cute flavours to it (it seems cheesy but it calms you down)
If you want you can drink plant tea or take some plant extract pills. Those are better.
If you’re in college I guess it’s time for you to try and make new friends. Connections are hard to build but sometimes having positive people around that support you helps. Hugs are great. You deserve to be loved.
I hope you’ll find the strength within yourself to get better.

Have you actually read Dungeon Meshi? it's really really good, i'd highly recommend it.

I almost bought it at a book store in Burbank, but didn’t once my buddy and I figured their “buy two manga get the third free” sale only applied to one publisher. Funny enough it was the Dungeon Meshi publisher. I’ll probably get around to it one day since graphiteknight will probably never make another Dragon’s Crown fan comic. It fills in the void quite well, but remember kids. I also have a title to uphold.

“What do you want me to say? Anyone who doesn’t want you to be happy with who you are is an asshole. Fuck pleasing everyone else. You only live once. Who are you gonna do it for?”

ahh please help me! i've fallen headfirst into les mis fanfiction and i haven't even seen the movie and i only read the book once but the fic for this fandom is SO GOOD and theres SO MUCH and i really love your fics and was hoping you could direct me to some of your favorites/fandom staples? i noticed enjolras/grantaire seems to be the most popular pairing and i like them a lot but i am slowly disintegrating over courfeyrac/combeferre, i am a shivering heap on the floor, i do not know what to DO

Friend, I am sorry this took so long, I have been busy trying to save my academic career. 

Basically read everything theladyragnell, samyazaz, idiopath-fic-smile (especially In Defiance of Geometry if you have even the slightest interest in Combeferre/Enjolras/Grantaire, TRUST ME ON THIS)

For fandom classics, uh:

How the Future’s Done - Enjolras accidentally adopts a cat and falls in love with Grantaire.

Gnomon - Enjolras is a terrorist (of sorts) and Grantaire is his shadow/partner. 

Let Me Count The Ways - 10 Things I Hate About You AU.

the quiet truth - E/R fake boyfriends. 

NSFW - Enjolras is a pornstar.

Hacker AU - casual sex turns into feelings everywhere. I just reread this the other day and ugh ugh ugh so good still.

Here are some other fics I also enjoy a lot: 

dust off your highest hopes - Theatre AU where Enjolras is the artistic director of the ABC Theatre Collective and Grantaire is a theatre marketing genius who helps them to stage sell-out shows. 

secret agent man - undercover fake husbands oh god.

After the End - dystopian AU which I have been rec'ing left, right and centre these few days.

Good Intentions - 95K of A+++ HP AU.

The Five Year Plan - Enjolras loses his memory of the past five years and doesn’t remember that Grantaire is his boyfriend, among other things.

casual affair - Enjolras and Grantaire are strangers who have casual sex. A lot. With feelings, even. 

anonymous asked:

You know what I realized? In all the PJO and HoO books, there's at least one scene in each where some character, major or minor, is falling. I mean, shouldn't we have realized that in MoA that Percabeth would fall? The only book I can't remember any falling scenes in would be HoH, but that might be because I've only read it once (stupid grounding and school work got in the way). But seriously, how did we not see this coming?!

I believe in HoH, they fell in the House of Night? But not positive. Good observation!

My Favorite Book Is:

dancing-with-anonymity said:

There’s this amazing book series called The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon, it consists of only two books so far with a third written but yet to be published. This book simultaneously ruined and made my life, it’s set a few decades into the future and focuses on London and the secret gangs of clairvoyants (as it’s illegal), the story follows a girl called Paige and I can’t even describe the book anymore without spoiling it. Words can’t even describe how much I love it. It’s hard to get into the story but once you do you can’t put it down.

Andrew being -A would break the unspoken rule of thriller/horror/mystery themed shows. Andrew’s character should only be used as a distraction to the viewers with a little involvement to the overall plot. Being an accomplice is one thing but the mastermind? No. He was just Spencer’s drug dealer/tutor/decathlon member who would make weird faces at Mona in the background who we would be maybe once or twice in the last few seasons.

"I once loved someone, you could say her lips were paper I've been meaning to write on. So like all love stories, it begins with a kiss." Yes, you should write a book. I would read it a hundred times, especially if it started with that poem, my favorite poem by you. I'd tell all my friends about it. I know I'm not the only one ;)

Holy shit, you remember that line?

anonymous asked:

So I finally got around to reading the original 5 PJ books. But like, it took me a while because I had a hard time getting into them. I thought maybe once I started the next series it would get better, but so far I've tried to read TLH three times, but quit about halfway through. I know you and a lot of people like them, so I feel like I'm missing something. Should I push myself through to the next books (I do know some spoilers already thanks to Tumblr) or is PJ just not for me?

My favorite thing about the books is honestly the character interaction between the Seven, which only really starts paying off in Mark of Athena/House of Hades (so there’s a lot of character introduction to get through in the first 2 books in the series - which I don’t mind, but some people do). I had a hard time getting through the original 5 PJO books as well because the style was so cheesy, haha. It could just not be for you, and there’s no sense in forcing yourself to like something, but maybe give the later HOO books a try before giving up altogether?
