As soon as I watched @tilly-and-her-books recent book haul~ I went and bought this stunner. Howard is one of my favourite authors and I greatly enjoyed her retelling of Alice in Wonderland (and Morpheus lol).
I’m in love with this cover, it’s darkly beautiful~ I hope the story inside is just the same!
Derek finally opened his eyes when he heard a terrible crashing sound
below. He had kept them closed and tried to go back to sleep as everyone
else in the Hale house woke up and went downstairs for breakfast.
Except that apparently, everyone in the Hale house had a strange
aversion to being quiet and Derek winced at every footstep on the stairs
and the shuffling of feet, chairs, and people down below. Werewolves are supposed to be stealthy
he thought to himself and rolled over because he knew that his family
was a great many things, but stealthy was not one of them.
He’s carefully balancing the sandwiches and the two
biggest tupperware containers he could find that both had functioning
lids when the front door opens and he almost drops everything right
there in front of the stupid fountain.
If that’s Derek Hale, he’s definitely not a mountain man.
A left, another left, a right, and then a left. Or was it
left, right, left, left?
Jungkook doesn’t have time to worry about that as he races
down the hall, each tick of the clocks in the hospital, each quickening beat of
his heart feeling like it might be the last. Like it might be too late.
Room two twenty-four,
two twenty-five… screw it.
Jungkook bursts through the door a millisecond before he
could process that it was indeed the correct number, but is given confirmation
by the figure seemingly drowning beneath the white sheets.
He was pale. An IV drip attached to one arm. There were a few
patches of faint yellow from the bruising. But amidst the faint beeping in the
background and the smell of disinfectants much too strong, he was still the
same Jimin that Jungkook had always known.
“Jimin—” Jungkook cuts himself off, part of him
afraid that he’d regret whatever tumbled out of his mouth in such a distraught
state, and the other part of him not even knowing what to say.
Jimin, I’m so
sorry…please don’t hate me.
Jungkook keeps his head bowed, avoiding the look of hatred
that he expected from his husband.
But as he looks up and sees that strangely empty look in
Jimin’s eyes, he knows that something isn’t quite right.
“Jimin? Are you okay?”
“Yeah, I’m fine.” A pause that feels much too
long. “Sorry, um, could you tell me who you are?” he asks, eyebrows
furrowed and lips curling down into a frown. “Were you someone important
We all need to remember that Bakura is a nerd and likes playing DND and roleplaying games. But he’s the kind to be the dungeon master and kill everyone like a sadist and collect all the souls in the end… Yup.
I love thinking that Bakura and Ryou are DND nerds.

the air is cool & a
slight breeze blows against the flames of their campfire where they sit on logs
set up up in a ‘u’ shape. it’s only been
an hour but taemin’s already screamed three times, mistaking bits of ash for
bugs, his body folded in half with his bottle in one hand & the other on
jinki’s arm, head on his shoulder.
jonghyun sits next to jinki on a log shared with kibum & minho has
his own perch directly across from taemin.
the group began drinking
long before they sat down, a day at the beach spent in the sun, sand, &
surf culminating with everyone a little drunk around a roaring fire. jonghyun is the most plastered & jinki
the least, everyone else falling somewhere in-between.
“truth or dare.” jonghyun’s the one who asks, his words a
little slurred & his eyes blinking sleepily. taemin snorts & jinki rolls his eyes, kibum
ignores the group & minho sits up a little straighter.
“what’s your favorite
“pairing. fandom pairing. us.”
jonghyun gestures at the others with a finger pointed to the sky,
looping around three times before it falls limply against his thigh.
minho takes a sip from his
log, the one closest to the campfire.
the stick in his hand, meant for stoking the flames, pushes against the
dirt as he thinks.
“i like all my ships. i love all of you. i love shinee.”
