…we entered a round chamber at the top of a tower. A circular table of black stone occupied the center, while the largest stretch of interrupted gray stone wall was covered in a massive map of our world.

wlw book recs

hey I decided to make this post because I’m always looking for more wlw books to read and thought it might help some people out. All books have links to their goodreads pages (some books have adult content etc)

I rated all of these books 4 or 5 stars, I will hopefully be able to update this post regularly

“’When everything was quiet, I went up to the corridor and the curtain in the living room was open just a crack… I could see outside. I watched, only for a few seconds.’ He had not seen the outside world for twentytwo month. […] Max lifted his head, with great sorrow and great astonishment. ‘There were stars,’ He said. ‘They burned my eyes.’. From a Himmel street window, he wrote, the stars set fire to my eyes.”

Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

“Not everyone has to be the Chosen One. Not everyone has to be the guy who saves the world. Most people just have to live their lives the best they can, doing things that are great for them, having great friends, trying to make their lives better, loving people properly. All the while knowing that the world makes no sense but trying to find a way to be happy anyway.”

― Patrick Ness, The Rest of Us Just Live Here

part 1 here  

after weeks of platonic bed-sharing, lines start getting blurred: 

-sometimes shiro crawls into bed shirtless after training and showering, and allura gets extra snuggly when he does 

-allura likes to trace his scars when shes fidgety while a half-asleep shiro traces the markings along her arms 

-“hey that tickles" "get used to it shiro. girls like scars, dont you know that?“ "oh yeah? let’s see if you like getting tickled then" and giggly chaos ensues 

-eventually shiro just starts walking around shirtless as they get ready for bed because he knows she’s used to seeing his scars and he likes watching allura blush 

-sometimes shiro will roll over and give allura a groggy "good morning” peck without thinking, but then scrambles into the bathroom after he realizes what he’s done 

-sometimes allura hooks her leg over his hips and deepens the kiss, but one of them always pulls away and escapes before things go any further 

-neither of them ever bring up these occurrences after they happen, they never kiss outside of these incidents, and they both dread the imminent “what are we now” conversation 

-by this time coran and the paladins have all caught them in compromising positions and refuse to believe that they still haven’t had sex 

-keith constantly teases shiro about it and lance jokingly laments losing his shot at the princess

-then one night, when they’re both wide awake and unable to blame the flirting on drowsiness, shiro comes in shirtless from the shower and teases allura about how clothed she is in comparison…so she takes off her shirt too…and things just go from there

I fell for her in summer, my lovely summer girl,
From summer she is made, my lovely summer girl,
I’d love to spend a winter with my lovely summer girl,
But I’m never warm enough for my lovely summer girl
