rereadings

“to see you do that laugh behind your hand that you do, like you think you shouldn’t be smiling”

Yeah. More SLGN inspired shit. Get used to it I duckin love this fic and I love these boys ugh

a little bit of poetry reading tonight from one of my all time favorite poets.

what are your thoughts on this poem? how do you interpret it?

the first time i read through the book, I didn’t mark this page but recently I’ve been thinking a lot about this specific piece and I decided to reread it tonight. Definitely a new favorite

Don’t Feed the Trollocs

The Trollocs armies are easily fed, feasting on their own dead. It seems like there should be a way to sabotage this food source. Poison it? Set it on fire? Or would that just be - ugh - cooking their food for them?

Speaking of Trollocs, with the exception of a brief confrontation between Rand and some Dreadlords, so far the battles of AMOL has just involved fighting them.

And I’ve realised that this is not what I expect from WOT. Yes, there have been a few battles with Trollocs here and there - and Trollocs vs The Two Rivers back in TSR was a notably prolonged one. But the most significant battles have involved conflict with other humans, like the Shaido, the Seanchan, Slayer, the Black Ajah, Darkfriends and/or the Forsaken.

All this fighting Trollocs reminds me of The Lord of the Rings and fighting Orcs. It’s really not very often that WOT feels reminiscent of LOTR in this way.

(So in WOT, archers are ordered to “Loose”. It’s a logical term that nevertheless doesn’t have the same oomph as Aragorn shouting “Fire!” in the The Two Towers (a line memorable mainly because the trailer came out in the days of dial-up, and if my siblings and I went to the effort of downloading something, then we were going to watch it repeatedly until we’d memorised it).)

I know this is only Tarmon Gai’don so far. There are another ~620 pages to go, and they involve conflicts much more personal than butchering. (Perrin, for instance, has just set off on his quest to face his nemesis. The plot, it is a-going places.)

But because those later conflicts were so much more memorable, I’d forgotten about these opening moves against Trollocs…

And a part of me wishes there was less military strategy against such an uninspiring enemy (they’re like pawns in chess, only less aesthetically pleasing) and more reunions. Or farewells. But it is what it is. Back to the book I go!

Fic post here!!


Review - 10 out of 10 Larry Thumbs!!!

Wow. 

This fic is completely, stunningly, overwhelmingly beautiful. I cannot believe how many times I reread paragraphs because I was amazed by every element of the writing. From word choice to sentence structure - the writing took my breath away. 

It’s an addicting read, too. I couldn’t put it down, and eventually I found myself in the best kind of emotional haze. Which, speaking of emotions - oh wow. Everything Louis and Harry experience is conveyed so well you almost feel like part of the story. It’s just so beautiful.

If you’re looking for a poetic, angsty, intimate fic - here you go. Read this right now, you won’t be disappointed.

{Trich anon} think tumblr ate my ask?? ((Or if you just haven't gotten around to it yet just ignore this one)) But thank you for thinking of me. I'm sorry I haven't been writing in as much but life's been crazy and I think tumblr ate my last couple asks. I have been rereading your fics though (especially the one you wrote for me a few months ago) to help me get through my relapse, so thank you so much. ((Again if you got the other one sorry just ignore this sorry))

Please don’t worry about not writing in! I know everyone is busy with school! I’m so glad that my fics have been helpful to you, bby. I’m sorry you had a relapse, tho :( I think the stress of school can bring those on bc the same usually happens to me.

Me and the fam are here to support you, kiddo! I’m sending healing vibes your way, bby <333

remember when everyone was reading the hunger games and one of the major themes was how the media toned down all the horrible things that were happening to focus on the bullshit love story
and then the books got made into movies and the real life media toned down the horrible things that were happening to focus on the bullshit love story
because I still think about that sometimes
