*BANGS ON TABLE* GENTLEMEN BASTARDS. I’ve bee lurking on your blog for like two years now and I cannot even tell you how pleased I am that someone I admire so much likes these books that I adore and feel are so underrated.
SHRIEK omg!!!! this is so nice and I saw this reply… literally 3 days ago I think but then forgot to reply immediately and then I went back into my activity to find it thinking NO I MUST RESPOND ABOUT BOOK!!
The books are amazing! While I do read a lot, I hardly ever have patience for any book over 300 pages and Lynch gets me through literal doorstoppers. Each book also has a really satisfying end plotline and there’s enough subplots to keep me going through the middle. Red Seas, Red Skies wasn’t my fave because I’m not into naval plots, but I loved the characters/writing enough that I still liked it. I hope that the series eventually goes back to Camorr, though! YASS FANTASY VENICE
I will confess that I am absolutely 100% invested in Locke and Jean making out. And the book’s general pattern of Locke getting into utter distress and then Jean saves him.
so those are my thoughts on the gentlemen bastard series aka that ongoing fantasy series i’m dreadfully into although i generally loathe the format
Translated from the official Tokyo Ghoul movie twitter (x):
Attendees who watch the Tokyo Ghoul movie in the first 3 weeks can receive a coaster drawn by Ishida Sui specifically for this occasion as a present. And in the first week, the ban on the full cast illustrations will be lifted! 6 different illustrations are available for Kaneki, Amon, Rize, Hide, Nishiki and Yomo!!
Robbie being unintentionally good at dealing with the children’s flaws.
Stingy claims everything as his? Robbie figures he’d never had something that was truly his and helps him make his own clothes. That are his only, have only ever been his and were made specifically for him.
Trixie causes trouble left and right? She needs attention, she is bored. So he entertains her and puts her in charge of something so she can feel important.
Ziggy is obsessed with sweets? Let him eat all the candy he wants. After a day of stomach pain and nausea he’ll never want so much candy again. Some things you have to experience to know they’re not good for you.
Pixel doesn’t like social interactions and sometimes spends hours playing video games right until the next morning? Robbie teaches him ways how to cope with being an introvert and feeling overwhelmed by sensations and explains things to the other children so they can be considerate. As for the gaming, the power goes out suspiciously often lately…
And what about Stephanie? Well, sometimes she can be a bit forceful and stubborn and can’t see other people’s side of the argument. So Robbie, simply by telling her no and annoyedly pointing out the things she missed/ignored, helps her be less narrow-minded.
And he does all of that unintentionally. He just does it without second thought, as if that’s normal and obvious while Sportacus stands flabbergasted and very much in love.
Jon, sweetie. We know that part of the reason you volunteered to LEAD the expedition was jealousy.
1. When they asked how they were meant to get a Wight to King’s Landing, you shook your head and avoided eye contact. You may as well have just shrugged your shoulders and moonwalked out of the scene.
2. Then Jorah pipes up volunteering to go do it and prove he’s still a contender. But you couldn’t have that now, could you? Your eyes anxiously dart between Dany and Jorah straight after he offers his service to his Queen. Doesn’t look like you’re too keen on how Dany is concerned for another man.
3. And then finally, you maintain full eye contact with Daenerys after announcing your intention to head the mission. (I mean, seriously. What was the point of this if not to convey some emotion like, *I’ll go for you too babe*?! Including while Ser Davos is talking to you). You didn’t volunteer to lead until AFTER Jorah played his hero card.
