Apart of fanfic, what books or authors you prefer ?

Oooh, thanks for this question. This is for everyone:

I read a lot of genres, to be honest. But because of the style I use and type of fanfics I write, I find it especially helpful to read a lot of “juvenile” fiction. This kind of books is usually frowned upon since critics (and people that like to think of themselves as superior to everyone else) believe that they have nothing good to offer. And while I won’t deny that a big part of this genre’s too basic and in some cases, it’s even badly-written, I think there are tons of incredible novels out there.

So, my first big series was Harry Potter. I started reading it on my own when I was 6, and I read every book as it got out. So, even though in time I’ve come to realize that there are so many things Rowling did wrong (I think of her as a 6/10 author, honestly; I don’t think she’s particularly good at her job), this entire saga is one of my favorites. I read them all in order once a year during my winter break, and it never disappoints me.

I have The Complete Series edition in my bookcase, in English, and with all that fantastic art by Kazu Kibuishi. I just love it.

A couple of years ago I was going on a 20 hours road trip in a car, and I wanted to have something to read during those boring hours, so I went to a bookstore near my house and started looking for something interesting to read. I decided to buy “The Lightning Thief” by Rick Riordan, and HOLY SHIT.

The first thing I did when I got to the new town (I kid you not), was going to the closest bookstore and buy the other 4 books of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians saga. I devoured them in a week or two. Since then I’ve bought the other 5 books of the Heroes of Olympus saga, the trilogy of The Kane Chronicles, the first book of Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard and the first book of The Trials of Apollo, all of them by Rick Riordan and all part of his amazing universe. So I have 15 books from good ol’ Rick.

Well, that’s because Rick Riordan is my favorite author of all time, and I try my hardest to imitate his style, even though I add some of my personal touches. Too bad they fucked up the movies (TOTALLY NOT HIS FAULT, HE HATES THEM TOO), if they did justice to them they could have a Cinematic Universe that would give Marvel a run for their money.

IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE PERCY JACKSON SAGA BUY IT AND DO IT NOW.

(also, @viria , one of my favorite artist out there, is doing the official art for Riordan’s page, which is awesome)

But my ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOK SAGA is…

Memorias de Idhún, by Laura Gallego García.

I don’t know if there’s an English version of them. I suppose there is, and I hope there is since this 6 book saga is the best thing I’ve ever read in my life. So many plot lines without feeling confusing, so many interesting twists, so much romance (the love triangle here is like nothing you’ve ever seen, I bet you $500 you’ve never read anything like it), SO MUCH FRICKING AWESOME ACTION. It has magic, it has Gods, it has new races, it has dragons, it has a wonderful world, it has prophecies, it has… IT HAS EVERYTHING!

Look it up and read it, if you can. You won’t be disappointed.

(this is an image of the comic, but check out the novels)

Guess who just finished her favorite book saga and is going to flood your timeline with posts and fan art from it? Yeah me

So be prepared for me posting dragons and talking about magic and elves cause the Inheritance Cycle is the best saga ever but not a lot of people know it.

Sorry in advance if you don’t like fantasy😅

Their greatest comfort was a simple one:
they were no longer alone. To know that you were with one who cared for you, and who understood
every fiber of your being, and who would not abandon you in even the most desperate of circumstances,
that was the most precious relationship a person could have […].

It literally just occurred to me how Halo 5′s original announcement trailer and the ending of Heaven Sent are basically the same thing :’)

area man winds up in desert feeling very grumpy after the loss of loved one

carrying a symbolic token of their loss and emotional/physical trauma

while facing down the immensity of what lies ahead

NEW FRIEND UNLOCKED! "COUNTRY NAME" HAS GAINED NEW FRIEND: BABY OWL! How would the allies react to these words appearing sparkling over their head as an announcer voice says the words? I hope this make sense, like in a video game when you get an ally or new item. This would be after the baby owl bringing in a flower ask.

And the owl saga continues! -Admins Sarah and Jay


America: “HECKS YEAH LEVEL UP DUDE! I GOT A FOLLOWER!
Alfred would be beyond stoked. Having the large letters appear above his head would send him into a fit of giggles as he smiles brightly at the owl. He would excitedly help the owl put together a little nest by his bed as he introduces him to all of his other friends. Though once everything calms down he would sit across from the owl and fix his glasses as he goes through a list of sidekick names. All based off of heroes and comic books, of course. In the end he would be so happy to have a little bird companion. 

England: “Y-You came back?…and to stay?”
Arthur would be so happy to have something come back to him and want to stay. He would be blushing, but as soon as the letters appeared he would jump and glance around to see if Alfred was pranking him. Though once the letters faded and the owl was still there, and there was no loud American screaming “Got ya!” he would relax and smile as he shows the little owl to its nest that was never touched or moved. (He was hoping the owl would come back…) As the night goes on, he would sit by the owl’s nest and read with a cup of tea as he crumbles up some biscuits for the owl to snack on.

France: “W-What?…Oh. It’s you..!”
Francis would be confused, especially since he doesn’t often play any sort of video games, so as soon as he saw glittery words over his head he’d get ready to either 1. Blame Arthur, or 2. Ask Arthur what was happening. As soon as he saw the little owl he would calm down, before blinking a few times as his brain tries to understand what just happened. He’d eventually just pick up his new friend and carry it around on his shoulder. Time to brag to Gilbert that his bird is prettier than Gilbird.

Canada: “Oh!..Hey there little guy..!”
Matthew wouldn’t be bothered much by the large letters, but be very excited when he saw his little owl friend again. “You mean I can keep you?!…” He’d be happy to have another friend. Maybe his little owl would get along with Kumajro! Matthew doesn’t have many friends, so he takes pleasure in having pets to talk too, or play with, so having another pet of his own would make him super happy. Especially one so cute!

Russia: “You are coming back to me?…To stay?…”
Ivan would be..shocked, at first. He wouldn’t expect to see this owl again, yet alone keep him…or have the owl pick him. He’s used to people, and most animals, being scared of him, or not liking him, so the fact that an animal, especially one so small and sweet would pick him, would make Ivan want to cry a little bit.

China: “Oh! You’re staying? I still have your nest!”
Yao would be so happy to have the little owl back. While the owl was gone, he would have made a lot of little toys and decorations for its nest in hopes it would return. Though as the letters pop up, he would jump and look around before smiling as he gently pets the owl. He would be too happy to care about the voice or the letters, because he would have company again. And cute company on top of that.
