texting peeves

It annoys me so much when I find an Arthurian book with beautiful classical style illustrations and then I look closer and realize they have given all of the knights mustaches.

No beards. A mustache accompanied by a beard would be perfectly acceptable. But no. There are no beards. Just mustaches.

Bushy mustaches.

And I try to pretend the mustaches do not exist as I read, but every time I come to an illustration I am abruptly reminded of their unfortunate presence. Soon I find myself mentally preparing for the mustaches as I turn the pages, bracing myself against the sheer force of their ugliness.

Eventually I give up. I close the book. I do not finish reading. I am half way through Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. They have given Gawain a mustache. I am angry.  I am broken.

The mustaches have won.

#STOP TREATING THE HARRY POTTER FILMS AS CANON 2K15

I’M SICK OF PEOPLE COMPLAINING ABOUT SNAPE COMING INTO THE POTTER’S HOUSE WHEN HE WAS NEVER FUCKING THERE

I’M SICK OF PEOPLE BEING SAD ABOUT LAVENDER WHEN SHE DIDN’T FUCKING DIE

I’M SICK OF PEOPLE MOURNING GOYLE AND NOT CRABBE

I’M SICK OF PEOPLE NOT KNOWING ABOUT WINKY OR PEEVES

I’M SICK OF PEOPLE BEING ANGRY AT DUMBLEDORE WHEN HE HAD NO FUCKING CHOICE

Edit: If you do not wish to or are not able to read the books, have you not heard of audiobooks? J.K. has written these books so very thoroughly, with every detail, even the smallest ones, interconnecting with each other and the larger ones, meaning most of the small details are very significant! J.K. has written these books with such detail the likes of which I have never seen before! The films are complete fuckups and do not do the books justice at all, they have changed, removed, and added details that cannot be changed and do not belong, meaning the films do not make sense! If you actually read/listen to the books, perhaps more than once, and I mean properly pay attention, you will have your proof and answers! And before you message me telling me I need to calm the fuck down, these books and their author are deserving of highest respect due to her skill and their quality that the films do not fulfil in the slightest, for reasons I have mentioned above! Now please, stop badgering me!

One pet peeve regarding fanfiction I have:

when they get all mushy and start regarding each other by their full name

“Catherine Annabeth Marie Josephine Walker, what would I do without you?”

“Oh, I don’t know, August Walkerson.”

Seriously?

I cringe and close the fic immediately.

Unless it’s OTH and you’re saying Brooke Davis, it’s not normal. People don’t use their last names in dialogue.

When someone makes one of those funny “TV show + text posts” thingy and the text posts are super small but you still wanna know what the joke is
