you: asks me a specific, direct question me: mind instantly goes blank
haha uhhh god. i’m going to play fast and loose with “fantasy/scifi” genre labels, so don’t discourse at me about the technicalities. also my tastes were always pretty pedestrian, so don’t be surprised if you’ve already read everything on this list haha, but here’s a brief list of books that fall under “titles i have reread multiple times”:
The Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud
The Circle of Magic quartet and The Circle Opens quartet by Tamora Pierce (see also: The Will of the Empress, Melting Stones, and Battle Magic)
His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Discworld Series by Terry Pratchett (will readily admit i haven’t read All of these, but read quite a bit of the ones involving Rincewind and Death)
The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien (forwards and backwards and weirdly out of order……)
The Raven Cycle Series by Maggie Stiefvater
Fire Bringer by David Clement-Davies
The Sight by David Clement-Davies (see also: Fell)
Animorphs by KA Applegate (lmao)
I’m definitely forgetting some because my actual collection still lives at my parents’ house so i can’t go stare at it to jog more nostalgic memories
Well, actually, you can create a baby without...you know.Remember the baby we saw in the jar at the ministry Harry? It's a complex spell. They use it on couples who have trouble getting pregnant. I'm sure Voldemort was capable of doing that spell.
so he didn't...didn't
No. Probably not. Yeesh.
Everyone lets out a relieved laugh
wow that God for that.
that was a terrifying few minutes
I am relived
Great. Right, let's go and get Albus and Scorpius back, take down delphi and make it back in time for tea and Bake Off.
Okay so you know that trope in fics where after Harry comes out, Ron asks him if he ever looked at him that way? Usually his response is relief but like, what if it wasn’t? What if it went like…
Ron: What do you mean you’ve never?
Harry: Well, you’re like my brother. It would be too weird.
Ron: Not even once?
Ron: But you’ve thought about Malfoy?
Harry: Um, recently, yeah.
Ron: I’m gonna need a 20 inch essay on what Malfoy has that i don’t.
Harry: It’s not like that! Hermione, help me out here.
Ron: Is it the hair?
Hermione: I doubt that’s it, he used to like Ginny. Maybe it’s more about posture.
Harry: *hitting his head to the desk and groaning*
Ron: I’m taller than he is Harry and he’s a bit skinny to be honest. I have more bulk, you know? Wait, where are you going? I’m a bloody catch, come back!
Hermione, snickering: There there, Ronald. I know you are.
