Rubies for a King | COMPLETED

Jimin/Jungkook

Genre: college/supernatural AU, slow burn, coming of age, eventual smut/romance
Rated: NC17
Summary:

In return for Jimin’s life, his health, in return for an heir to the company throne, Jimin’s father had made a deal with a dragon.

A dragon.

Jimin blinks, tired of waiting, tired from his anger. He blinks, and almost misses the way the overhead lights flicker; not even during monsoon season have his lights ever flickered. He watches, wondering if he’d imagined it, but just before he dismisses the notion, it happens again. He hears a whoosh, a thump, and the electricity stabilizes

Jimin is suddenly terrified, afraid to look. He hears the balcony doors slide open, then shut. He hears a sigh, the creak of a floorboard.

“Am I really so late that you fell asleep waiting?”

J. J. Abrams/Stephen King’s  “CASTLE ROCK”

An ANTHOLOGY (yes!) series based on King’s short stories that use the Castle Rock location - Salem’s Lot, Needful Things, Shawshank, Annie Wilkes, Pennywise, Danny Torrance

According to “The Hollywood Reporter,”  the series “will weave together characters and themes from those novels that use the Castle Rock location.”

Subsequent seasons would then follow a different set of characters and storylines, but would also link back to seasons that came before.

Finally, an ANTHOLOGY format, THE PERFECT (& ONLY) format that works for the horror/supernatural/paranormal genre on TV! Thank you, J. J., for recognising that!

The teaser doesn’t reveal anything about its plotlines but just seeing those classic King titles pop up, being weaved like neurotransmitters travelling in the CNS, convening in the Brain aka Castle Rock, excites the hell out of me! BRING. IT. ON.

I. AM. SO. THERE.

  • Loser : ballad, slow-tempo melancholy hip-hop track.
  • Bae Bae : mid-tempo, soothing rhythm, soft-trap snares and melodic piano.
  • Bang Bang Bang : EDM, bouncy, electro-pop, siren-like, trap-laden breakdown.
  • We Like 2 Party : pop, mid-tempo, soft-hip-hop feel-good track.
  • Sober : spunky delivery and high-energy rock sound,lush guitars mixed with pounding percussion
  • If You : soft ballad, sparse guitar strums, impassioned belts and haunting croons.
  • Me : thank u :')
REVIEW | EUPHORIA

This is a book by Lily King.

Genre: fiction, historial
Setting: New Guinea, 1930s
# of Pages: 259
Rating: 4.5/5

The skinny: Lily King has done something tremendous here. I read constantly, but rarely do I sit down to read a book and look up 90 minutes later thinking only a few minutes have gone by..

The fat:  Euphoria is, above all, evocative–of a time in history and a place in the world and a fledgling scientific discipline. King handles this trifecta with remarkable finesse: her story is at once steeped in history and a culture foreign to most readers, but at the same time it feels undeniably modern, immediate, and universal. King’s portrait of three very different anthropologists and the people they are attempting to understand speaks volumes about the human condition. But more compelling than this, even, is her innate understanding of how consuming an academic passion can be. For someone who has spent most of her life in classrooms, having spirited debates about the provenance of words and art and poetry and what it all means, the image of three people closeted together in the far reaches of the ‘civilized’ world, euphoric and drunk on their own discovery, is a powerful one.

Highly recommended, for readers of the inherently academic to the purely passionate.
