“Frank and I also share the same off-the-wall sense of humor. Once we walked into a party where clothing was unwelcome. However, after Frank and I got comfortable amid the sea of legs and breasts, I felt a little silly so I began to do Batman. Somewhere across the room, Frank became the Riddler, and it was so ridiculous in that setting that we couldn’t stop laughing. We had the distinction of being thrown out of our first and only Hollywood orgy.”

Many thanks to the amazing @maia-saura, who kept sending me wip snippets that left me blubbering and shoving more art in her direction. :)

a must read!

All right guys! I know some of you have read either The Foxhole Court and/or The Raven Cycle. Some of you may or may not also have read Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe? Yeah? Right?

I’ve got something for you: Silent by Sara Alva

It’s a must read I accidentally stumbled upon yesterday. It’s this absolutely beautiful, yet heart wrenching and unique novel about a gay kid, Alex, that gets thrown into the foster care system where he meets this other guy, Sebastian, who’s mute. It’s about dark pasts, survival, love and coming out.

After I finished it I looked it up here on tumblr and could hardly find anything. NOTHING. And it actually broke my heart a little since it’s such a beautiful story and truly deserves more attention. SO READ IT. It’s not even 4 USD on smashwords. And it’s so so so worth it!

And after you’ve read it? TALK TO ME <3

”Alex’s life as a teenager in South Central LA is far from perfect, but it’s his life, and he knows how to live it. He knows what role to play and what things to keep to himself. He’s got it all under control, until one lousy pair of shoes kicks him out of his world and lands him in a foster care group home. Surrounded by strangers and trapped in a life where he could never belong, Alex turns to the only person lower on the social ladder than he is: a “special” mute boy. In Sebastian, Alex finds a safe place to store his secrets—those that sent him to foster care, and the deeper one that sets him apart from the other teenagers he knows. But Sebastian has secrets of his own, and when tragedy rips the two boys apart, Alex will stop at nothing to find the answers—even if it means dragging them both through a past full of wounds best left buried. It might just be worth it, for the slim chance at love.” [goodreads link

My family is going to be moving houses at the end of June, and since I’ve started packing away my books, I thought I might as well share some of my books with y’all and give some book recs while I’m at it!

First up is the LGBTQ+ books I own. Unfortunately, I don’t have very many given it’s kinda difficult to find ones with plots that I like. (I contemplated whether or not to include the wtnv novel in this one, but seeing as it’s not centered around Cecil and Carlos, I decided to leave it out for now).

But anyways, here they are:

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz - A coming-of-age story about two young Mexican boys, Aristotle “Ari” Mendoza and Dante Quintana, who are as different as can be, but who somehow manage to forge an unbreakable connection that spans from childhood to adolescence, and beyond. Ari is angry and confused and from a broken family. Dante is gentle, and emotional, and is “crazy about his parents”. Dante knows he’s gay. And Ari has no idea what to make of his relationship with his best friend.

This one is super sweet and isn’t in the picture because it’s with Natsu at the moment. But it’s really thoughtful and adorable, and I just love Ari and Dante to bits and pieces. Definitely a must-read, guys!

Beautiful Music For Ugly Children by Kirstin Cronn-Mills -  About a young trans teen named Gabe who recently came out to his best friend and parents. The book is about him trying to make peace with who he is. Mostly, he does this through his love of music, and his bond with his next door neighbour, an old man who helps him get his first radio show, where he quickly develops a following of fans who fall for his unique taste in music and his quirky personality. 

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell - A Harry Potter-inspired fantasy book with an absolutely fascinating magic system. We follow an orphaned chosen one who’s just trying to get through the his last school year at his magic boarding school, the Watford School of Magicks, while the entire magical community somehow expects him to save them from the villain who’s been stealing their magic. And not to mention having to deal with his archnemesis vampire roommate who has probably been trying to kill him since the moment they met in first year. But after being broken up with by his girlfriend, and invited to his aforementioned archnemesis’ house over Christmas break, needless to say nothing is going as he would have expected. This entire book reads like some kind of strange, drarry roommates au fanfiction, and it’s absolutely GLORIOUS.

every day by David Levithan -  “A” doesn’t have a body of their own. For every single morning of their life, they’ve woken up in a different person’s body, with no friends or family or life to call their own. And it’s all fine. A’s gotten used to it, made peace with their fate. They’ve learned not to get too attached to anyone, learned not to attract too much attention or interfere too much with the life of the body they wake up in. That is, until they somehow find themselves falling in love with the girlfriend of one of the guys whose body they’re borrowing one day. I actually had to consider for a while whether or not to include this book, because a lot of the most important bodies A inhabits throughout this book are male bodies, and the main female lead is straight. But A themself is nonbinary and pan. They identify as whatever gender the body they’re in is, and are attracted to people regardless of their gender. Loved this book to bits and pieces, really bittersweet. It has a sequel called “Another Day” which is focused mainly on the Rhiannon, the female love interest, but I haven’t read that one yet since I’m not terribly interested in her.

Fan Art by Sarah Tregay - This one is….very juvenile. And by that, I mean it’s one of those idyllic, clichéd ya romances that we all like to pretend we don’t like, but that has all the tropes that we just adore in fanfiction and that we inevitably end up finishing in one sitting. It’s about a high schooler named Jamie who’s recently realized he’s head over heels for his (seemingly) straight best friend, Mason. Cue teen drama and angst and mutual pining. A really cute, light read with an adorable little comic near the beginning.

More Than This by Patrick Ness - Seth attempts suicide by trying to drown himself, and is pretty sure he succeeded. He felt his skull bash against the rocks after all. Only…he wakes up, naked, thirsty, starving, and utterly alone. He has absolutely no clue where he is, but the abandoned, crumbling, overgrown streets seem somehow vaguely familiar to him.

A suspenseful, thrilling, heartbreaking post-apocalypse with a gay protag that absolutely definitely has room for a sequel, though I don’t think the author has any plans to write one.

Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg - Rafe Goldberg is openly gay, and has a pretty good life. His parents are super supportive, he’s popular at school and has lots of friends, and no one really cares that he’s gay. But he’s getting tired of always being labelled as “the gay friend”. He just wants to be a “regular guy” and not “the gay guy.” So when he transfers to an all-boys’ boarding school, he decides to become “openly straight” instead. But just when everything was going perfectly for him, it all starts unravelling when he finds himself falling for one of his new friends.

I have mixed feelings about this one. I enjoyed it quite a bit while I was reading it, but the ending left me quite unsatisfied, and after having some time away to think about it, I’m not entirely sure I like the main character very much. He’s kinda really manipulative. Read at your own risk.

Proxy by Alex London - Sydney “Syd” Carton is a proxy. Rescued from the wastelands as an infant, his debt to the city was bought by a huge corporation that sells the lives of orphans like him to various rich and powerful people, who buy them as scapegoats for their own children. Syd’s patron, Knox Brindle, is exactly the rebellious, asshole bad boy that every proxy dreads. When Knox breaks an expensive vase, Syd is beaten. When Knox crashes a car, Syd is forced to donate a dangerous amount of blood to keep him alive. When a girl dies because of Knox’s aforementioned car crash…Syd gets the death penalty. His mad attempt to flee his fate leads to the accidental kidnapping of his patron and has the two of them branded as terrorists, leading to a crazy, cross-country chase that will change their entire world as they know it.

This book. Is literally one of my favourite books in the entire fucking world. Hands down the best dystopia book I’ve ever read. The characters are absolutely fantastic, the character development is fucking amazing (Knox somehow ended up becoming my fav character???), the world is rich and vibrant, and the book is beautiful and thrilling and utterly heartbreaking. If you read just one book from this entire list, let it be this one. It also has a sequel, for those of you interested, though I haven’t read it (and don’t plan on it either), so I can’t really vouch for it.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan - When two boys from completely different social circles and personalities somehow stumble across each other on one mutually crappy night, their shared name brings both their lives careening together in a strange, complicated, and downright frustrating way.

This one….was kinda dark. It was funny, because one of the Will Graysons is an edgy lil emo kid who thinks strictly in lowercase and writes angsty poetry and he’s absolutely adorable. But it also addresses some very real hardships and struggles that both gay and straight teens have to face.

Hi there! I know I'm tardy to the party, apparently, but I just saw your Kyungsoo art that you tagged as inspired by The Boy With The Blues. I'm actually the author to that! Your piece is really amazing! I'm so surprised that people are still reading that story years after I wrote it. I'm just... really floored. It means so much to me that people still think it's good.

omg HEY! I loved so much that fanfic, one one my favs u.u
Thanks for write such an inspiring work T^T

Hello! Can I request the 1p axis taking care of a sick crush? Thank you ^^

Yep! 

Germany:

-You are confined to bed rest until you get better. Germany is a diligent caregiver, and seems to know what you need before you do. He stresses how important it is for you to stay hydrated, so he makes sure you drink plenty of fluids and take all the right medicines. He’ll stay with you the whole time.

Italy:

-He’s an excellent chef, and makes some of the best soup for you. He also tries to cuddle with you to make you feel better, even if you insist that he’ll get sick too. He’s determined to help you get better, no matter what.

Japan:

-The very first thing he does is make okayu, rice porridge, for you to eat. He also has you drink lots of tea, and will quietly stay by your side for the duration of your illness. If you feel up to it, he’ll take you outside for a bit of fresh air and sunshine, which he thinks will make you feel better. He’s great at reminding you to take medicine.

Done! Okayu is the Japanese equivalent to chicken noodle soup, and it’s really good when served with pickled plum.

“Oh my God,” she says. “We killed her. We killed an old woman because we were having sex. I think that’s a crime. I knew this would turn into ‘Thelma and Louise’. I’m not ready to drive off a cliff into the Grand Canyon.”

I usually skip major character death, but you tempted me bro...

SNDSJFHBN ALL I CAN THINK OF IS THIS MEME:

You: “Remember that time you dared me to lick the swing set read the fic?”

Me: “No, I said, “Don’t lick the swing set read the fic,” and you said, “Don’t tell me what to do, Kat,” and then you licked the swing set read the fic.”

anonymous asked:

How would Jakson be when jealous and fighting/arguing with his partner? Btw I really like the way you write so I hope it doesn't bother you to answer this 😊😊...

Hey, anon! Jackson can get quite jealous since his Venus is in Aries (possessive af sign) but at the same time his Moon is in Libra… Which is not a jealous sign at all. And they’re placed in “intellectual” houses, the 3rd and the 9th, which makes him more controlled since his emotions are placed in houses that force him to think about them instead of just acting on it. But his mind, Mercury, being in the 2nd kinda messes this up in a bad way since it’s a malefic house that talks about doing things that are bad for the person. Meaning he’ll overreact now and then simply because his mind can be out of control with feelings (Pisces stands for them, and having it ruling the mind makes one quite confused as to when to think and when to feel). All this mixed up means he’ll be jealous but not in a dangerous or unhealthy way, it won’t be serious but at the same time will be a constant thing in his life.

He can get possessive but not in an exaggerated way. Basically he’ll react without thinking but later on will regret it and spoil the person as so a way of asking for forgiveness. lol Also remember his Mercury is in Pisces, quite a dramatic sign, so while he does get possessive now and then because of his Venus, he won’t yell or make a scene - he’ll be dramatic af™. So I’m guessing here that he might react too quickly to things that might bother him like WHY DID YOU TALK TO THAT GUY HOW DARE YOU I THOUGHT I WAS YOUR ONLY ONE and then like 5 minutes later he’ll be all I’M SORRY I OVERREACTED BABE IT’S JUST THAT I LIKE YOU TOO MUCH. And be all cute about it because he knows he overdid it. I don’t think he likes admitting that he’s wrong, though… It’ll depend on how jealous he’ll act. A walking emotional rollearcoaster, really.
