it is honestly hilarious reading reviews of american gods written by people who clearly have not read the book cos they’re all like “WHAT THE FJKNH THIS IS SO RANDOM WHOM IS EVEN HAPPENING??!!! not true television!! i am going to tell my father about this!!!” and then there are the reviews written by people who’ve read the book that are basically just like “bOI!!! u jUST WAIT!!” it is just so much more exciting to watch when you’ve read the book just cos you get to appreciate the aesthetics of the interpretation more when you aren’t distracted trying to connect the dots

This is my (very very very overdue) gift for the lovely and amazing @longstoryshortikilledhim as part of the @verymerrykylux gift exchange. Thank you so much for your patience with me! They asked for a scene from one of their fics, and I picked this beautiful scene from chapter 2 of their a m a z i n g fic, Psychomania. I highly recommend this fic if you haven’t already read it. It’s a beautifully written piece, and I can only hope I managed to do it justice.
It’s the holidays and during the holidays you express your thanks and love for things that are important so
here’s a list of bug fics that make me physically stressed with their greatness, and to which I would like to say thank you.
It’s Miraculous Ladybug, just to clear any confusion.
This fandom is the first to drive me to actually read fanfic and B O I let me tell you, I have had a fantastic time. Anyway have a list of fics that I love very, very much, so much that I scream at my friends when they update and sometimes stop reading in the middle of chapters because I don’t want them to end.
the premise is a bit hard to understand at first but then it’s explained and you’re whisked away to a wonderful fluffy awkward married acquaintances to friends to feelings to lovers and I just
I love it
seven chapters, ongoing
Wow this post is much, much longer than I expected it to be but that’s okay I really needed to say thank you to these amazing writers for these fics. They’re all so fantastic.
May everyone have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!
Please bear in mind that I have literally 40+ tabs open on my phone of unread fics, as well as a bunch of bookmarks, many of which include The Big Ones so if there’re some missing that you think should be on here, that’s the dealio.
As the Spring Day teaser was released today I thought I’d
create a study for you guys putting forward my observations as a Creative Writing
and literature graduate, please enjoy… *puts smart hat on*
A plotless work by Ursula K. Le Guin based solely on
description and allowing the reader his own interpretation of morality and philosophy.
The only chronological event in the piece is the first day of summer in a
euphoric utopian city named Omelas, an extended metaphor for youth, with a
vibrant festival atmosphere which we see in the teaser within the Omelas motel
in bright rich colours as they all live communally just like the people within
The reader is intended to remain unsure about the reasoning
behind this ambiguous world which is left completely up to interpretation,
confirmed by the writer in their own words: “Omelas sounds in my words like a
city in a fairytale, long ago and far away. Perhaps it would be best if you
imagined as your own fancy bids.”
The central point which makes the story real is its single
atrocity, the suffering of one child in filth, darkness, and perpetual misery.
Once old enough to know the weight of this suffering, a
group of young and old individuals walk away silently seen in one of the scenes
as each member walks together into a new environment, evident due to the
drained hue of the cinematography as it becomes more wintery, seen too in the opening shot in which the members have frosty blue tinged lips juxtaposing the background of bright childhood sights like the merry go round reading “you never walk alone” as well as the beach which show a stylized divide between them and their surroundings.
Jimin’s scenes are most notable with the most enduring being his connection to the sea, a theme which sets forth a contradictory metaphor as old as classical literature itself, of the ocean as a serene, beautiful yet dangerous and hostile environment. This idea is supported by Jimin holding another persons shoes in his hands, typically the first thing to wash up after a death by drowning at sea.
It is arguable that Jimin later walking alone in an apparent wilderness is symbolic of the book endings
ambiguity and potential as a blank canvas on which the personal meaning from
the readers imagination can be applied. Once again the writer confirms this: “The
place they go is even less imaginable to us than the city of happiness. It is
possible it does not exist.”
This could hint that the characters have
no further plot line, they are without a continuing story arc, supported by the
imagery within the teaser of each member repeating his own theme as oppose to
The notion of the scapegoat is central to the understanding
of the text, the writer being heavily influenced by psychomyths alluded to by
Dostoyevsky and William James. In a nutshell that no matter the happiness we
felt in a society that hinged on the suffering of one, our happiness would be
so monstrous to us that we would be forced to leave it by our own conscience.
About 7 friends on a road trip staying at a motel,
encountering a seemingly helpful group and being trapped, waking up to a
gruesome and bloody terror they must work together to escape and survive.
There is a huge possibility that the other group is a mirror
image of the 7 friends whose own actions put them in danger, causing them to
have to work together to overcome the consequences, it can also be used to
explain some of the dark and bloody themes seen in Wings, Epilogue and I Need U
A supernatural fantasy written by Alan Garner set in modern
Wales and based on a mythical Welsh woman named Blodeuwedd who was created by
flowers for a man cursed to take no human wife. She betrays the husband for
another man and is turned into an owl as punishment, a future theme eerily
hinted at in the sign at the bus shelter (which oddly has no exit roads) at the
destination aptly named ‘Affair’.
In Garners tale 3 teenagers find themselves re-enacting this
story, whose bird imagery relates directly to Taehyung’s portrayal in Wings and
the mythology and classical themes set forth in the previous era.
It is imperative we ask ourselves the forbidden question,
what if none of this is real? What if what we are seeing is just a narrative
device created to obscure the real story? What facts would this leave us with?
The central fact is the reflected suffering of a young person –
escaping into his books and movies to distract himself from the truth, a truth so all-encompassing that it bleeds through into every single thing he reads and watches. An
individual who was well versed in classicism and philosophy, of high intelligence
to keep noticing these themes and applying parts of his own life to generate meaning.
The ‘hyung’ Tae calls
for yet never gets through to after the fact, doomed to repeat and suffer that
which he cannot change, the events of his youth refracted in what he reads, so
many variations of books and films all mixed together and all in English, overlapping and still somehow
alien from each other, yet in each he sees his friends as well as himself as
the protagonists, that child would be the central theme, the scapegoat, the
utopia, the one individual which knits it all together.
The view of this one
man would perceive all the events, know the suffering of each character as only
an omniscient narrator would, how else would he know both the suffering and the
joy simultaneously unless the characters were all a part of him, each one a
strength and a weakness.
With this view, only the events during I Need U could have
been real, the rest simply memories, reflections and glimpses into his
imagination as he goes about his life, revisiting a now distant, traumatic yet halcyon
Who do you think he is? I hope you enjoyed my mini case
study of the new teaser! If you would like any more theories I
