infodumping about the ocean

You know, reading @whitefire321′s post gave me another opportunity to draw background Camilla and here she is

the signs as people from my university
  • Aries: That girl who loves partying and socializing with people, she's a fangirl of so many buffed-up singers and she's so pretty. She's kinda judgmental and she's homophobic but she follows so many gay people and likes their posts and nobody in my generation really understands why. She can be really impulsive sometimes and she hates classes but she's a good friend and a funny person
  • Taurus: That girl who is always late, she has social anxiety and she's silent af. Grades are not her forte'. She tries to socialize very hard and everyone is annoyed by the fact that she tries to discuss things that she really doesn't know shit about. She is afraid of some professors, she is christian af and she is kinda lost, but she's a good girl who believes in the supernatural and she always invites us to coffee at her place
  • Gemini: The girl who loves spending time with people, she always loves to discuss about every topic, she knows so much about many things, she's doing great with her grades and she's among the top 5 students in the entire generation. Also, she has PERFECT, sonorous American accent and everybody loves it. She always initiates coffee gatherings but nobody really comes because she's not that much of a leader and her voice is so soft so nobody could really hear when she's talking. She's also a passionate gamer AND in the same time she finds time to maintain her grades and social life
  • Cancer: That (jock) guy who's the tallest one, he's blonde, buffed-up and he's the definition of a straight white boy. He's childish as fuck and he can become very boring sometimes. Once, my colleagues have shooed him out of the cafeteria because he was bothering them. He also tells so many stupid dad-jokes and laughs at his own jokes, flirts with some professors, has been single since forever (not that he's ugly - he's average looking but he's so much boring sometimes because he doesn't have any real friends and he gets excited about people so he doesn't know WHEN to stop). He literally flirts with every single female human being that he can find and he pushes them all away because he's pushy af. He's also introverted and doesn't really know his way with girls
  • Leo: That girl who's one of the top students in the generation. She's always smiling, she has the best grades, she always tries to present this "perfect" image of herself. She is very intelligent and she loves reading, she gets drunk like every second day but that doesn't stop her from maintaining her perfect grades. She's very successful and she's a good leader, she knows all the fresh gossip and she always sits in the first row with her best university friend. In fact, she and her best uni friend are hated by everyone because they're just so successful and everyone's jealous of them. She also secretly hates everybody and gossips with her best uni friend. She and her friend have tons of screenshots ready to blackmail people if anyone says anything against them lmao. But everyone (every zodiac sign) in this generation pretends we like each other so...
  • Virgo: That professor who's VERY detail-oriented and she's a big perfectionist but she can't fix her awful handwriting. She's very successful and she has TONS of potential, she literally KNOWS EVERYTHING about her subjects but sometimes she can really drain us physically and emotionally. She gives us tons of assignments and homework and she always gives us lectures on the most difficult courses. Jfc she behaves like we study in Cambridge / Oxford. But don't get me wrong, she's NOT a bad person. She's actually a VERY good person and at the end of each semester she buys us coffee and tea, she talks with us about our experience with the course and she just wants us to learn some things that we should learn, that's why we perceive her as "difficult" and "problematic"
  • Libra: That girl who loves hugging, has great communication skills and is a social justice warrior. She thinks that she's everyone's friend and she always tries to criticize everyone's opinion, thinking that she'll seem and sound more intelligent. She also listens to rock and metal, she loves children and she smokes a lot, she's very sensitive and she's very friendly. Once, on the Facebook group of the university, she tried to accuse Pisces of something he didn't do and he literally ruined her in front of all those people, that was one of her biggest mistakes she's ever done in uni because she didn't know that that guy can be pretty evil when someone tries to insult/hurt him. The next day in uni she was on the verge of a mental breakdown because that guy really hurt her with his words, making her look stupid and pretentious, and everybody stopped talking to that guy for like, a month or two
  • Scorpio: That girl who's late in class 90% of the time, and those 10% she's not present in class. She is very quiet and she doesn't show particular interest in anything. She doesn't have a taste in fashion and style, unlike most Scorpios that I know. She just wants to go home all the time and nobody knows what she's doing in her life, she's so mysterious and she's not a good teamworker because she doesn't really care about her grades
  • Sagittarius: That girl who can't stop talking and she's always arguing with someone but we all love her. She's very communicative but she's insecure at the same time. She has tons of likes on Facebook and Instagram. She's a VERY open-minded girl, she hates racism, homophobes, nazi scum and racists. She's a really good friend with Leo and Pisces but Capricorn is her bff and her roommate. She has an excellent taste in fashion, style and music and she has S_L_A_Y_I_N_G eyebrows. I think that she's bi/lesbian but maybe she's closeted. She always hugs Capricorn and gets beaten by Capricorn because Capricorn can't stand people touching her
  • Capricorn: That girl who loves vintage notebooks, loves taking studyblr photos and uploads them on tubmlr and Instagram, she loves journeys and we haven't heard her talking for THREE GODDAMN YEARS. She is very antisocial and introverted but she has excellent taste for art, film, music and she's like 24/7 on her phone because it's obvious that she can't stand most of us but she's always sweet and supportive when someone approaches her. Sometimes she doesn't want to talk and she just smiles as a response. She's Sagittarius' best friend and roommate and they've became really close friends. She also loves journeys and she's a daydreamer but she's very intelligent. Her grades are not that good, she's not an attention whore and she tries to be "invisible" but she simply can't
  • Aquarius: That guy with his cockney accent who has insane memory and loves football. He's actually a loner, he's a bit creepy and weird, le loves britpop and indie nd he was one of the best students in the first two years of uni but his grades dropped. He's like, very secretive and he can be pretty arrogant and you just can't sit next to him because he's telling jokes all the time which takes your attention away. He is a loner and once he publicly told us that he used to have cyber sex with his girlfriend because she lived in another country and they've never met in real life (I mean, who tells such things omg Aqua get your shit together). He tries to insult people and he tries to be sarcastic but he can only be sarcastic with the stupid ones. He also thinks that he's a know-it-all and that he's the most intelligent person in the world. He can be really judgmental sometimes and he pushes people away with that
  • Pisces: That guy who always sits in the first row with his best university friend and is one of the top students in the generation. He's also a model, nerd, gamer, works out and whatnot. He is sweet to everyone and talks to everyone but he can be very sassy at times. He was the one who had a verbal fight with Libra because Libra triggered him and he destroyed her verbally. He's really skinny and dreamy and he has a very deep voice and an excellent taste in fashion and style. His style is kinda dark and he's so aesthetic. He listens to some music that no other people in the world listen to but he also listens to some mainstream music. In fact, he listens to whatever he wants and he doesn't really think about what other people think about him. He tends to roll his eyes a lot and he cares about his physical beauty more than he cares about his love life. He's too egotistic and self-centered and he's extremely picky, which makes him single most of the time.
Leliana's Development & Why It Is Natural (DA:I spoilers)

Alright, fandom, we need to get square on the character development of Leliana, because an astounding amount seem shocked at how she is presented in Inquisition, when in fact hers is one of the most genuien and smoothest transformations I have seen in any character.

Now the most common reactions I see to Sister Nightingale are;

  • “What happened to Leliana?! She was so sweet and innocent!”
  • “That’s the real Leliana! Badass and ruthless, she was just acting before!”

So neither of these are entirely wrong, but neither do her character justice.

I feel like I have to begin from scratch, meaning Leliana’s Song and up Inquisition for this to be conveyed understandably. So head’s up for spoilers on both (and Origins).

First and foremost; what we see in Leliana’s Song is the start. She is not innocent from the start (, in fact she’s never truly that)What you see in Origins is a result of everything that happened in Leliana’s Song, which although released after Origins was already a part of her character through an edited version of the events told by Leliana herself.

The ‘everything’ is important here, because Leliana’s lessons from LS was not only that the Grand Game is dangerous and hurts people (which notably was something she had carelessly ignored because she had fun tricking and killing people) and that Andraste will guide her. The probably most defining change in her character is from when she trusts Marjolaine to remove the incriminating documents that would pin them both as traitors to Orlais and potentially start a war, to Marjolaine instead stabbing her in the guts and leaving her and her friends to take the blame and (unecessary and excessive) punishment.
Leliana has lived a careless life of adopted nobility most of her life up until now, and when the Game suddenly isn’t as fun as its name makes it out to be Leliana is shocked. She now realises she had been blindly trusting,putting not only her own life but also her friends’ lives and the stability of two nations in danger. The fact that this realisation shakes her is what splits her and Marjolaine apart in personalities. (In the last paragraph you will see how she learnt from this and does not trust blindly in even the Chantry’s teachings.)

Now after Dorothea gives Leliana the key to escape (which in Inquisition Leliana phrases something like 'she showed me that I could save myself’) we see a beaten and apathic Leliana. She’s lost, she doesn’t have a purpose, she doesn’t even want vengeance on Marjolaine because she doesn’t know who she is anymore. A recurring theme for Leliana is doubting her identity. When she was young she sought fun and danger, now she feels guilty for ever having wanted that because the idols she had were people like Marjolaine who are ultimately egoistic and unsympathetic.

Leliana stubbornly refuses any similarities with Marjolaine, and leaves her for the new guidance of the Chantry. When Leliana is lost she goes from one guide to another, to reveal but not create her core. This is later seen as the Warden and Inquisitor can influence how she acts upon her morals.
Back on topic, however; Leliana refuses Marjolaine’s comparison of them because they do not share the same purpose. Leliana’s Song concludes with Leliana reflecting how her finding purpose is the heart of her story. She has found what she truly wants to dedicate her life to – the greater good, not the Game’s egoistic agenda, showing a great divide between Leliana and Marjolaine’s otherwise similar characters.

(A fun addition to this is the psychologist Søren Kirkegaard’s interpretation of mental development, in which a human goes from being satisfied by a life of aesthetics to a life dedicated to (religious) purpose and service.)

She now spends the next five years being taught how to be idealistically good. Desperately, we see her cling to this ideal way to be when she joins the Warden. She acts overwhelmingly innocent despite her natural contradictions because she needs to convince both those around her and herself that she canBut what gives her away is when her grey morals show, as in a few out of many examples here;

  • She happily accepts Zevran, an assassin of an organisation with legendary loose morals (to put it mildly) and deadly efficiency, in joining their quest as he will be a tool to help the greater good.
  • In conversation with Alistair, we also hear her saying that she does not fully regret leaving the people in Lothering to die at the hands of darkspawn as their effort overall will be worth more than she could do there.

Both in Origins and Inquisition we see her willing to be merciless if it benefits a greater cause. This is also why I believe that some/most of her positive attitude in Origins is genuine; she is happy that she can lead a life of both elements of what has defined her so far, and she belives she is utilizing that for everyone’s best. Leliana has both idealistic and pragmatic sides to her. (This is likely why your Warden will get negative reaction from her when they can be helpful, and why she didn’t react as strongly to choices in Redcliffe as Alistair did among other reasons).

What Origins and Inquisition does, however, is show the doubt even now (yes, with a ten years gap and further adjustment of her character to the dark side of good). As stated earlier we are able to guide Leliana in both games because she lives a life of such conflicting morals, and the fact that this is believable is what makes her a well-written and strong character. The fact that she is doubting herself is why the Warden and Inquisitor can influence her – and fear not, dear gamers! Both unhardening and hardening Leliana is true to her character;

  • Hardening Leliana makes her embrace her more morally grey side, that she can act bad on behalf of good and that does not automatically make her an evil person. Hardening her does not rob her of her faith in the Maker and that she is doing His work.
  • Unhardening Leliana as well makes her content that she is doing what she does for others’ sake, that the Maker approves, convincing her that she is therefore not like Marjolaine (in Origins, in Inquisition this doesn’t bother her because she has matured). Unhardening her does not rob her of her willingness to kill and cheat.

Either path shows that ultimately, Leliana does not only believe in the Maker no matter what but also in herself, which convictions are now so intertwined it is hard to say where one begins and the other ends.

This is why she does not hesitate to become the Left Hand of the Divine, knowing what shady work it entails but also that she is doing it for the people of Thedas.

This is why she is shaken seemingly out of her faith after the Conclave, but bounces back soon after.

This is why, when she realises her socially-imposed ignorance towards the oppression of elves and mages, that she takes a stand for them because she believes without being told so that it is right.

This is why her goal as Divine, no matter what, will be for the betterment of the oppressed and the inclusion of the excluded.

Even in Origins you hear her contradicting the Chantry with her own interpretations of what is important, and as Left Hand and Divine she continues on this path by working towards conversion. No matter what paths she takes, she stays true to herself.

Leliana’s strength lies in her faith and doubt in herself, in others, in the Maker and everything. With both factors the writer has made a balanced, believable and still surprising character, who can genuinely be both merciful and merciless.

“Sometimes it takes another to show us the truths we hide from ourselves.”
                                  - Leliana, Dragon Age: Origins.

I realize now that I never posted the finished version of this.
Well
Here it is.

“You know, you’d think they’d stop trying after the fifth knock out,” Donnie comments idly.

“I know, right?” April replies. “Oh- on your left.”

Donnie ducks dutifully, and dodges the large fist aimed for his skull. He remains crouched, and April uses him as a spring board to kick the alien clean in the face. The alien falls, all six of their eyes rolling back, and thus adds a sixth knock out to April’s tally.

April’s right side is open to attack, and Donnie helpfully electrocutes the alien that tries to take advantage of that. As he does, April spins around and uses him as cover to shoot three unsuspecting aliens in the vulnerable spots. The smell of burnt things fills the air, as well as screaming in various languages.

“I hope that thing is worth this,” April remarks, eyeing the object Donnie stole, and thus started the whole mid-market brawl for. Less than legal markets are their preferred spots to visit, since, inevitably, their visits always end like this. Fewer chances that law enforcement will get on their tail, even if everyone else does instead.

“Oh it will, I promise,” Donnie says. And it definitely will be, since you can do so many things with an energy converter; especially one that’s a couple thousand years ahead of earth tech, and opens so many new invention options if he can just tweak it to suit whichever machine he hooks it up to-

April sweeps his legs out from under him, catching him with her psychic powers, and blasts a sneak-attacking alien clean in the face. She shoots him a mildly annoyed look, while the corpse flops onto the dirt ground.

Donnie’s face gets a little hot. April always looks lovely when she’s in the heat of battle. In general, really.

“Don’t space out on me,” She says, flicking a finger and hauling him back to his feet. “You’re cuter with fewer holes in your head.”

Donnie makes something between an agreeing noise and a nervous giggle, and swings his staff around to break someone’s outstretched hand.

She later gives him a kiss on the cheek, and a gentle reprimand for getting them into yet another market brawl. However, she seems quite pleased with how much violence they’ve been through that afternoon, and Donnie got a kiss and a converter out of the debacle, so he counts it as a successful shopping trip all around.

Hades kids are collectors

Let’s be real with ourselves: Hades is a huge nerd. I bet he has a coin collection from the first coin ever made. He has an entire grand room for his collection of the skulls of conquerors through out history that he keeps in glass cases which are in chronological order. He has a library dedicated to poetry from the Romantic Era ordered by author and genre. He is a nerd I tell ya, and his kids are no different

Lets start off with Nico

  • We all know he was a huge dork as a kid; he was obsessed with Mythomagic, he even memorized the cards attack points. Bianca even said that there was only one figurine that he didn’t have
  •  Given how the card game must have been (and still is) and how many gods and monsters there are, I bet that would be a lot of figurines (where would he have kept all of them?)
  • Nico was the kind of kid who would wait outside a comic book store in a long line at midnight just to try and get a limited edition gold card set. I bet he still would as a teenager
    • “Nico, can you tell me again why we are standing in this long ass line? it’s dark and cold…”
      “Because, Will, mythomagic came out with a new art style for the nine muses cards and if we don’t get them tonight there won’t be anymore”
  • He eventually gets back in to mythomagic after he hears Will say he’s never really played before. He teaches him everything he knows, which is a lot
  • He attends small tournaments between the camps. It’s very popular, he tells Will
  • He’s won first place three years winning and shows no plan on stopping
    • the prize is a handbook with exclusive chapters
  • He builds his card collection up, and he is so proud of it
  • He has a big card holder (those books with sleeves you put your cards in, I don’t really know what they’re called) and it has every card
  • He treats it like its his baby
  • When he’s older and lives in an apartment (with Will) he’ll try and show off his collection to his friends anytime they come over. Hazel thinks it’s cute and will politely sit on the couch and listen to her big brother while Will brings her sweet iced tea
  • He buys all the premium figurines, too. He lines them up on the book case and once a week he will dust them. Will complains that it’s the only cleaning he ever does which Nico replies by tickling his boyfriends nose with the duster. All good fun

Now Hazel, this sweet, sweet girl:

  • She has a rock collection to the surprise of no one
  • After her curse is lifted, and all the gems she pulls out of the earth won’t cause any misfortune to those who take them, she becomes really fascinated by them
  • She learns about how they are formed and what minerals components they are made out of. She especially likes learning about the effects of impurities and off coloring they can get from it. She says those are the most valuable ones 
  • Her collection starts when Percy and Frank got her a small schist rock for her birthday as a gag gift
    • the running jokes legacy lives on, and it makes everyone laugh
  • She keeps it on the living room coffee table for all to see its glory
  • Annabeth, Piper, and Reyna take her out to the city to window shop. They pass a store that has geodes on display. They all go in, and Hazel comes out with seven different geodes in each color of the rainbow
  • They are also displayed on the coffee table along with her schist
  • The eight rocks on her table look so lonely and out of place; they would look much better if they had their own special display
  • So she asks Leo if he can help her
  • He makes her a cabinet/shelf that mounts to her living room wall 
  • It looks so lovely, but a little empty… 
  • Hazel continues to add on to her collection over the years
  • She travels to the places where certain gems and rocks are most common and begins sorting through them to find the right ones
  • She never takes too much from the earth, she makes sure of that
  • She has them in color order– for the aesthetic
  • It grows so big that she can’t fit them all in her apartment and it’s becoming a hazard
  • But the lovely Reyna has a solution
  • Hazel Levesque’s Crystal Emporium!
  • A very spacious building in downtown New Rome where Hazel can store her rock collection and allow any curious soul to admire it all
  • Hazel cries during the grand opening
  • She’s so happy to see how many people want to see her rock babies
  • There’s even a little gift shop that Leo and Nico set up
    • There are geode key change
    • customization bracelets that you can pick what rocks to use for different meanings 
    • and a fact book about rocks!
  • It’s so popular that demigods around the world visit it
  • There is a wall of celebrity demigods and in the center is Hazel and all her friends

Hades’ children are nerds and love to collect just like their dad, and that’s pretty much it

block b baking
  • Jiho: Doubles the ovens temperature to "minimize baking time", because that seems way more efficient. Everything is burned yet raw and he doesn't understand.
  • Kyung: says he "doesn't need measurements", just eyeballs everything. turns out he really, really, really needs measurements
  • Taeil: experimental baker. Would chili paste taste good in lemon cake? Taeil gotta find out. Makes the rest eat his creations later and smiles a little too much while they gag.
  • Jihoon: licks the bowl clean and wants to put sprinkles on the cake. Writes "I love Taeil" in pink icing. he's so cute.
  • Jaehyo: Was ridiculously exact with measurements, temperature and time, yet somehow manages to burn all his cookies. He tried though, he really did.
  • Yukwon: Calls Sunhye every 5 minutes for advice, because "she makes the best cakes like, ever", ends up having a 2 hour phone call with her next door.
  • Minhyuk: takes pictures, makes comments from the side, doesn't actually join the baking. He can't get flour on his YSL Blazer, duh.

About a year ago i had a rlly bizarre dream (for the au) where Dan and Ross fused into this massive leviathan-esque creature?? It had like 6-8 pairs of long spindly arms and large decorative rings and halos rotating around the length of its body. I talked about it briefly when i had the dream but since then ive been a Weeb™ and expanded on the idea of hybrid fusions. Which is NOT canon to the au but its a nice thing to think about when im bored at work lmao

Anyway, in the dream, I was an old man in a rickety old fishing boat (bc im hardly ever myself in any dream i can remember) with two old dogs and another that was apparently thrown overboard by these destructive waves crashing down on us. In a fit of blind panic, i lunge after the dog, causing myself to get pulled out of the boat. I manage to grab the dog and pull him towards me but the waves prevent me from actually getting us back on the boat. So dream me assumes that this is it, that I fucked up and lost two dogs to the sea, that I tried to save my third one and doomed both of us to die.

But in the distance, I notice the water clearing up; the waves calming down as if the eye of a storm was approaching me. It takes a minute or so to reach me but when it does, it seems almost anticlimatic. Theres no part in the sky, no light shining through or what have u; just still water. But it enables me to swim with my dog all the way back to my tiny fishing boat. I immediately try to direct us back to shore before the waves pic up again, but they never do. The break in the storm stays with me for hours until im able to get back to shore and when i do, the waters beside the boat instantly turn wild again.

The old man is stupefied but not ungrateful, ushering his dogs back to his house. But i can clearly see this monstrous looking, white serpent swimming back towards the middle of the ocean. Its the very first design of any fusion like being in the au but its still my favorite. Im probably gonna draw it just bc i was super fond of it. Yall gonna have to see the product of my nerd ass making aus of aus lmfao

If yall are interested tho, i can draw up the other designs i had too. Like I said, they arent canon to the au but the idea is still rlly cute :0 and i promise u, if you think of a pairing, ive already thought of a design for them lol

Changes In The Works

Hey, Shapeshifters!

Exciting things are happening over here in our little corner of New England, we know we’ve said that recently, but they’re coming closer and closer to fulfillment!

Life has been pretty rad here at Shapeshifters for a long time and you guys are a big part of that – we never would have taken off like we did if it hadn’t been for all of the word of mouth you guys have given us. But just in these past few weeks we’ve reached a tipping point!

You know, back when we first started selling binders, back when “custom binder” was a single listing on an Etsy store we shared with our two then-roommates, our biggest high-falutin’ dream was maybe making some extra cash to supplement our day jobs. Now, just three years later, we find ourselves working on this full time, living in a place we love, going out to events, and realizing that we’ve not only outgrown two webhosts, but also our current setup. We’ve hit a plateau and the only way to meet our growing demand is to become more than just two rainbow-flavored nerds working out of our dining room.

So here are the big important things that are happening – some of them are more relevant to you guys than others:

  • We’re moving out of our dining room! We’re leasing a unit in a local industrial space where we’ll have our own studio with plenty of space, some new equipment, and a business address not attached to our home address. For most of you this just means that wait times are going to go down as we’ll have more space to do multiple steps of the process at once; for those of you who are local, it means we’ll have a space you can come into to fondle fabrics, get measured, and even try on a binder or two. This is hopefully going to happen early next month and we’ll make an announcement when we officially make the move.
  • We’re starting a newsletter! We’ve gotten a ton of new followers since we were featured on Buzzfeed and with them has come a lot of questions about sales and giveaways. There’s only so much we can do to keep people informed through Tumblr, so it’s time to create a mailing list. Newsletters will go out monthly in general with supplemental emails going out as needed; they’ll include information about what’s going on at the store that month (sales, giveaways, conventions, personal updates), thoughts we might want to share about things going on in the world or the various rainbow communities, and links the FAQ and our various social media accounts. If you’ve placed an order with us in the past, check your emails for the sign up link; but don’t worry if you haven’t gotten one, we’ll also post the link up around our social media sites and the store itself shortly.
  • We’re finally going to get around to that Youtube channel. We’ll be posting video tutorials on how to measure yourself, how to put on your binder, comparisons between different binder fits/customizations, comparisons of our different fabrics, walkthroughs of our workspace, and other things that will help you guys get the most of your binders and understand us and the work we’re doing. If you have any other things you’d like us to make videos about, feel free to email us at info@shapeshifters.co!This won’t be until after we’ve moved into the new space, but hopefully by the end of the year!
  • A podcast?! Maybe! We’re throwing out the possibility of a podcast where we chat about rainbow issues, binding tips, real talk about bodies and how they work and how the fashion industry screws us over, and answering some of your questions! We’d actually really love some feedback about this – what kinds of things you’d like us to talk about, questions you’d like us to answer, if you’d even be interested in such a thing! Again, please email info@shapeshifters.co! We don’t have a timeline for when this might happen, but we’ll let you know if and when we decide to set it up!

That’s just about it for now!

Change is scary! But it’s also exciting and we’re looking forward to transitioning (ha!) into this new chapter of our business. We’ll continue to keep you guys updated as things progress!

You know , I never considered how much of Dorian’s content revolves around reading. First scene in Skyhold? Picking through books. Then the next cutscene starts with him reading a letter from Felix. Then he reads the letter from his father (*cough* provided the Inquisitor isn’t an ass). If you romance him you have to read a note to find out about his gift. He’s trying to find a book after Adamant and then has a War Table mission to obtain said book. He’s reading at the start of his talk after the Temple of Mythal. Oh! And he’s one of the people who commonly chimes in during Cass’ reading scene. There are definitely more scenes that involve reading somehow than not.

I mean, I know he hangs in the library but dang.
