this is pretty much where i finished up last night

finished the thing from last night.  I ended up not sleeping very much at all and still felt pretty meh, but finishing this up helped.

Region, though, is pretty pissed at something.  Angry enough that he’s spitting literal magma out of his jaws.  He may be a fire-type dragon but he doesn’t breath the stuff often- instead he uses molten lava as his “breathe weapon”.  His internal temperature heats up to the point where he’s glowing from the inside yet it doesn’t affect him much at all. 

I struggled coming up with a color for the inside of his mouth, and since he’s got a few blue markings, why not blue?  …ilovehisteethtoo

Flatmates - The Christmas Tree

You share a flat with 4/4 of 5sos at university.

It was nearly Christmas, you were looking forward to going home to spend time with your family, but you still had a couple of weeks until uni finished for the year and you got a well deserved break. 

With Christmas on the horizon the talk of the flat had turned to Christmas decorations. You decided not to decorate your room as you would be going home and didn’t really see the point. That and you didn’t want to waste the money you had on Christmas decorations you wouldn’t be around to see. 

Your flatmates however had other ideas.

“We should decorate the kitchen” Luke says randomly. You were in the middle of making dinner, Luke was leaning on the counter next to you.

You simply rolled your eyes in response to his suggestion.

“We could put tinsel up and get a little christmas tree for the windowsill” he continues excitedly.

“Or we could not” you respond.

“Oh come on it’s Christmas lighten up” he says nudging your shoulder.

“I’m sorry but I don’t want to have to battle my way through a sea of tinsel before I can get to my food.”

You turn around when you hear the door to the kitchen open, Calum walks in. “What’s going on?” he asks as he leans on the counter behind you.

“Y/N doesn’t want to decorate the kitchen” Luke states.

Calum lets out a fake gasp of surprise.

You sigh.

“Come on Y/N why do you hate christmas?” Calum pouts.

You sigh again, “I don’t hate christmas I just don’t want loads of Christmassy shit in the kitchen” you state.

They gave up after that knowing that they wouldn’t be able to convince you. Your food was ready so you took it the the table to eat.

Calum and Luke left after a while to meet up with some of their friends, they were going out, they had invited you but you had declined. It was a guys night and although their friends were nice to you and you didn’t mind spending time with them, they were a pain in the ass when they were drunk and you couldn’t be bothered to deal with that today. So instead you opted to to stay in and watch Netflix all evening.

-

You woke up the next morning, it was nearing the afternoon but you didn’t have anything to do so you didn’t bother getting out of bed at a reasonable time. You shuffled to the kitchen, finding it impossible to move normally when you were still half asleep.

You pushed through the door, walking inside. You weren’t looking where you were going. Suddenly your body collided with something, causing you to trip forward and fall on the floor. You yelp in surprise and groan as you hit the cold hard floor. 

You stand up and look over to the object, your eyes widening in shock and annoyance. In front of you stood a christmas tree, not a small one like Luke had suggested either. It was an artificial tree that came up to your chest. It wasn’t there when you had gone to bed and now it was obnoxiously stood in the doorway to the kitchen.

The door opened behind you, Calum walking in. “I heard you yelp are you okay?” he asks, his face full of concern which you thought was cute.

You just stare at him, not saying anything, then you shift your gaze to the tree, and then back to him, raising your eyebrows in want of an explanation.

The concern washes from Calum’s face, a smirk taking its place. “I see you’ve found the tree” he smiles.

“Yes, i tripped over it on the way in, why would you put it in the doorway?” you groan.

Calum just shrugs. Calum moves towards the tree, picking it up and moving it the corner of the room where it could no longer surprise attack anyone.

“Also,” you begin calmly “why the fuck is there a massive christmas tree in the kitchen?” you finish a little less calmly.

Calum shrugs again, “Dunno, we found it on the way home last night and carried it with us, I thought it would look nice in our kitchen” he smiles innocently.

“So you got drunk and stole a christmas tree, then carried it up two flights of stairs and left it in our kitchen?”

“Pretty much” he says with a wide smile.

“Unbelievable” you shake your head in disbelief.

Masterlist

Tokyo Ghoul - 9, 10, 11, 12 [End]

242nd Completed Anime - Tokyo Ghoul - 7/10, even though the last episodes were quite enjoyable. 7 isn’t a bad rating, really, but it’s usually the lowest I give a show that I actually enjoyed. Anything 6 or lower generally means I didn’t like the show. 7 liked, 8 liked a lot, 9 loved, 10 my lover. lol. 

Also, according to ANN, the second season has been announced for January, so yay for that. I look forward to seeing where it goes. 

Since I wanted to finish this before getting spoiled, I watched the last four episodes last night so this is a really long write up, even though somewhere towards the end I stopped writing because I wanted to continue watching and then just wrote about the actual finale later on.

Spoilers all over the place.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: ★★★★☆

Synopsis

Simon Snow is the worst chosen one who’s ever been chosen.

That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.

Half the time, Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he sets something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here—it’s their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up.

Thoughts

I’ve been waiting to read this book ever since I finished Fangirl in the spring of 2014, and it was everything I hoped for. Adventurous, magical, romantic, dark, and hilarious. It was the best of two worlds for me, as a complete potterhead and a big fan of Rainbow Rowell and her snarky writing. Just close your eyes and imagine the world of Harry Potter, but tweaked in the important places (the nature of the magic, the main villain, the relationships, the magical world). Now, add a main character who in many ways resemble a lost puppy (totally adorable but completely clueless) and a sarcastic would-be-nemesis with deep personal problems. Now make them fall in love (honestly, they sort of reminded me of Juliette and Warner from the Shatter Me series. It’s the tale of cinnamon-bun-boy and the problematic fave). Top it all off with a heap of snarky and sarcastic humour, and you’ve pretty much ended up with Carry On. It has all the complex and humanly flawed characters that is the mark of Rainbow Rowell, and an adorable gay love story to boot.

The start of the novel really pulled you in, but I felt like it started in the middle of a series, like I’d missed a big chunk of what came before. It might be because it was a so long since I finished Fangirl (where you get a bit of backstory), but I found this a bit annoying. I only finished Carry On last night (technically this early morning), and my mind is still in a mess over it. Some of the revelations in the end were pretty predictable, but some of them were completely shocking. Since it is very inspired by Harry Potter, I kind of expected it to move in the same direction, but that’s where I was wrong. Carry On truly is its own story. But whose story is it? Initially I thought it was the fanfiction of Cath from Fangirl, then I wondered whether it was supposed to be the original that Cath reads, but it’s really neither. In the author’s note, Rainbow Rowell says that this stoy is what she imagined for the characters, that she wanted to give them more story than they got in Fangirl. So, basically, it’s Rainbow Rowells fanfiction of her own novel about fanfiction which is based on fanfiction of Harry Potter. Wait, what? Anna confused. To me though, it was like a blend of Rainbow Rowell and Cath writing the story. There were some things that really made me think of Cath, especially toward the end, where one of the characters has a drink from Starbucks that they invented themselves and which tastes like a candy bar. Does this sound familiar to you? *Cough, Levi, cough, cough*. Whatever it is, it’s awesome. It made me laugh out loud on numerous occasions, made me gasp with surprise and made me feel all gooey and melty inside. You should definitely pick it up if you enjoy Harry Potter, Fangirl, or love stories.
