- you sitting beside his sarcophagus, waiting for him to awake from his slumber
- “good morning, ahky..”
- “good evening, my princess”
- him taking off his golden headpiece, placing it on top of your head, helping you balance to the weight of it
- listening to the stories he’s experienced in ancient egypt
- “what happens if i see you next and you’re gone?”
- “i swear to the name in ra, i will never leave you.”
- you begging to know actual age
- him retelling the story of how you met, you thinking he was an actor at the night exhibits
- “goodnight, ahkmenrah..”
- “good morning, y/n..”
You know when you are just casually scrolling down Archive of Our Own, looking for a longer fic and you see one with 100-250k words and your like “yes finally some good, light reading!”
Let me just help you understand something (Using HP as a reference as thats my fave books):
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone - 76,944 words Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - 85,141 words Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - 107,253 words Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - 190,637 words Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 257,045 words Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - 168,923 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Approximately 198,227,
SO DON’T FOR A SECOND BELIEVE THAT FANFICTION WRITERS AREN’T REAL AUTHORS BECAUSE THEY ARE LITERALLY WRITING BOOKS AS LONG (and longer) AS THE BIGGEST HARRY POTTER BOOK ( which btw has over 800 pages!) WHICH IS THE DEFINITION OF AN AUTHOR!
Also if you thought you didn’t like to read but started to read fanfiction because they were “shorter” and now realize that you have been reading more than you thought then haha jokes on you!

I feel like Escapade is quickly becoming a new Larry Classic, falling in with fics like Fading, Wear It Like A Crown, Things Have Gotten Closer To The Sun, etc. Those fics everyone is recommended over and over and over again, fics that the majority of Larries have read. I think that’s fabulous.
