Hey I just wanted to ask if you're still alive D: You haven't posted anything since February it feels like. (Also I got my book in the mail (finally) it looks AMAZING thank yooou!)

oh……………… uh, I guess I’ve been in this sad-hole for awhile now, whoops. I lose track of time down here sometimes. 

I’m ok, tho, thanks for checking in. 

(PS if you were waiting for something from me, those have all been sent, sorry for the delay.)

Brianna was coming down the stairs as he pulled the door of the study closed, moving with exaggerated caution. She arched a brow in question and he lifted the folder, smiling.

“Got him,” he whispered.

She didn’t speak, but an answering smile spread across her face, bright as the rising sun outside.

Voyager by Diana Gabaldon

When it comes to the discovery of Jamie in the records of Ardsmuir prison, I feel like this little detail gets overlooked. Jamie is often associated with imagery of the sun in the book. Is this Brianna being associated with the sun in a way that creates yet another thing she’s inherited from Jamie? Or is the sun that is associated with Jamie shining on her because the record of him has been found and it brings her one step closer to him personally?

I saw you said Greg is 6'5 and I dropped my phone and buried my face in my hands,,,,, that is such an excessive height but also somehow makes him more attractive wtf

The only thing Greg didn’t disappoint his father in is the fact that his appearance is so impressive. His face is busted up from football but he still somehow cute. He looks like he crawled out of a Stiefvater book.
Gregory Hawkins. Tall, dark bags under his eyes, anxious around Noah and afraid of birds.

Hi! I remember some time ago, you posted a list of lgbt+ books you'd read and liked, and I went looking for it the other day and have apparently lost the bookmark. Do you happen to have the link on hand, or remember your recs? Thanks so much!

hmm, I’ve had a dig around – this post is about half lgbt+ literary fiction and half not, and this one is purely m/m fiction recs. 

(I might as well get a forehead tattoo that says EVERYONE READ REGENERATION.)

if you’re looking for that kind of list, though, low-key patron saint of book recs @lotstradamus has about seventy of them, GO FORTH AND BE AMAZED.

I will say that as of the present moment, both lottie & myself would 100% add sebastian barry’s days without end to that list–which I know because she shouted at me until I read it–and I would reiterate my rec of austin chant’s peter darling, which is a trans gay romance.

I feel bad that I have to identify myself as Mexican before I start this off... But why do people throw a lot of hate at Sarah for not having diversity? She isn't the only one who writes like this. Yes, she has the platform to speak about diversity... but she doesn't have

[2] to. Her job is to write enjoyable books. And TBH, I don’t actually look for the color of people’s skin or hair when I’m reading. & when it’s a same sex couple of course I cheer, but it’s not something I look out for first. What I’m trying to say is that you can’t hate Sarah for [3] The way she does. If you don’t like, don’t read. But also don’t put down others because they like something. Or put downs someone’s ship Bc it isn’t fem/fem or Male/fem. it’s promoting the same hate we are trying to stop. Also, I said “Mexican” Bc I feel like when [4] you try to defend something like this, you usually get backlash Bc people think you are defending white society or whatever

I agree with you 100%. You’re preaching to the choir. Idk if this is your first time at my blog, but I am an ardent defender of Sarah J Maas. I make the arguments you’re making right now all the time. 

We can’t expect Maas to be a chair, if she’s always been a table. That’s not fair of us to ask of her. We can’t change other people, but we can change ourselves. I’m not sure if you’re implying that I was putting down people for reading her books (cuz never have I ever) or if you’re just saying that in general…? (or if this is just a rant cuz you know my blog is a rant safe space. LOL)

I’m not sure, but all I’m saying is that if I, personally, am not getting what I want from Maas in the next few books, then I have to change my behavior. And that means I have to stop reading her books.

I am in no way shape or form telling other people not to like her (again: never have I ever). And I agree with you about ships. I helped invent Elriel and that got (and gets) so much hate. It’s like, “why do you care?” But people spend energy on all kinds of stuff. It’s one thing to have dialogues and debates with people about ships and evidence and all that, but when people make posts about “crackships” and how people are just desperate and bored it’s just rude. I agree. But I’m also not policing the internet. People can do and say what they want. I always just try to remember that “when they go low, you go high.”

Aaaand that’s all I got!

im tired anyway here’s some more time travel fic

Everything goes the way it does in the books, except that occasionally someone looks up and Neil isn’t there and the air smells a bit like burning, but then they blink and he’s right back in front of them. The Ravens switch divisions. Neil and the monsters go to Eden’s Twilight. Neil pays someone to knock him out. He hitchhikes back to Palmetto. He tells Andrew his half-truths and whole lies. They go on Kathy Ferdinand’s show. He fights Riko. Andrew offers Neil his protection.

It goes the same. Sometimes Neil travels in time and space, sometimes only in time. Usually to somewhere around Andrew, except he hates Andrew, so for the most part, Neil stays away, even when Andrew is an angry-looking kid, even when Andrew is a calm-looking adult.

Until one day, when he gets whisked into a bedroom in the middle of the night and the figure on the bed stirs.

Keep reading

Any suggestions on good books on Witchcraft, I am somewhat out of practice these days due primarily to lack of space and overabundance of work. I am not a Wiccan but I have been an avid occultist for many years now but I am looking for some new reading material.

I really like @breelandwalker‘s books! I have Grovedaughter Witchery and The Sisters Grimmorire, and found them both very clear and entertaining. This site has all the appropriate clicky-links to get them:

“Dami ..I can’t find my reading glasses have you seen them ?” Asking as you walked into the living room of the manor.

Damian looked up at you from a book “I have not”

“Shit, that’s the third pair this week” you muttered, plopping down next to him.

“[L/n] you are not much older than I, how is it your sight is so poor?”

“Genetics my dear Dami, genetics”

“Sounds rough” He looked over as you nodded.

“I wonder if I could talk Bruce into LASIK?” Mumbling to yourself.

“Tt, good luck with that” Damian said turning back to his book. “I wouldn’t let someone near my eyes with a laser.”

You shrugged, “I mean it’s a trained professional. Not like it’s Dick or someone” You both laughed.

–In The Batcave–

“What’s wrong Dick?” Tim looked at the now tense older male.

“I don’t know, but it feels like I was just insulted” Tim just looked at him before shaking his head and turned back to his computer.

‘Leave the first sentence of a fic in my askbox and i will write the next lines (incase I want to do more than five)’
