Nightrunner ruined the fantasy genre for me because I haven’t been able to find anything as good as it is. I used to devour fantasy books, but ever since reading Nightrunner, it’s been hard to get through anything fantasy because nothing compares. D:

:( I’m sorry to hear that. I know it’s really difficult that when you really love a series not to compare everything to it, but that’s usually a big mistake. Not only might you miss out on some really great books, it’s also not really fair either to the books nor to the authors. Still, I do understand you. See, for me it was actually rather the other way around. I’ve always loved fantasy, but where I am living, it’s very, very difficult to get good fantasy (well, it’s gotten better in the last years, but back then…. horrible). So I basically checked the “read also” lists on amazon and sometimes I found something that I liked and so I checked the “also read” lists for this book and so on. Or e.g. the books I’ve suggested yesterday - well, I read them because Lynn Flewelling said they were one of the inspirations for Nightrunner. 

The thing is, nothing will ever be exactly the same nor should it! (because that, kids, is called plagiarism) Perhaps you might give one or the other book another try? And if not, I can tell you Nightrunner not only lead me to other fantasy books, so there might be some other genre for you to check out. How about mystery for example? Just keep in mind that only Nightrunner is Nightrunner, and not even whatever LF is going to write next will be like it. Books are individuals, just like their readers, though some have certain things in common, others nothing at all, again. Epic fantasy is by and large all inspired and influenced by LotR, but that doesn’t mean it is just like Tolkien’s work. That’s the art of it. Nothing original is without influence and inspiration. 

Okay, I have to seriously stop myself now. I just hope you yet find a book or two that you like - and perhaps they even are fantasy ^^

//i wrote a thing for our ship don;t judge me//

It started with the posture.

Nothing big or glaring, although the professor could see that the kitten was making an effort to hold himself correctly, chest out with shoulders back and head held high and proud. Letting it slide might have been Layton’s first mistake, but he was looking so confident and pleased with himself that the top-hatted gentleman couldn’t bring himself to point it out.

Next to change was the clothing, and this was where Layton ought to have stepped in. Under the pretence of simply needing to change his appearance to evade Volgin, the ex-soldier took to sharp suits, could be seen studying the various types of collar, tie, shoes and how they all matched or didn’t match. It wasn’t that Ocelot became unrecognisable after that, but he seemed less and less like the headstrong youth he had met on his travels, and more like a constructed archetype.

It didn’t worry him nearly as much as walking in on the cat practising his vowels, trying to enunciate in the same way that Layton would.

Finally, the professor could stay silent no longer.

Finding the boy researching hats, he rolled his eyes. “Adam?”  The kitten looked up at him expectantly, blue eyes aglow with attention. “We need to talk. I can see what you’re doing.”

“What I’m doing?”  The kitten tried to feign ignorance, his ‘a’ sound too long, too deliberate. The professor simply raised a brow, and it was enough. The Russian looked down, face red.

“I just…” He sighed, folding his arms. “I want you to be proud one day.”

And the professor chuckled, making Ocelot’s blush that much darker. A gentle hand squeezed the boy’s shoulder. Blue eyes looked into warm browns.

“Adam, listen to me,” he murmured, smiling softly. “You do not need to choose the path of a gentleman for me to be proud of you. You seek to better yourself. You are trying. I am proud of you as you are.”

After their discussion, the professor had never been so relieved to hear the younger speaking normally, though he still retained that proud stance, head held high.


[AWWWWWWWWWW THAT WAS THE CUTEST THING EVERRRRRRRRRRRRRR THANK YOU reasonablylogical]

Attention everyone!!

Sorry if I offended some of you about the photos I post here that doesn’t have a source on it. I don’t know the real artist and the real source of it since the person who post it before me, there’s no source on it. It might be because I’m too careless to check or too oblivious to notice but forgive my little mistakes on it. It might be little but it’s big, right? So pardon my mistakes. If ever you know the real artist of the photos I post here, please don’t hesitate to send me a message so I can put the source on the photos. Thank you. 

valhallanbadger replied to your post: anonymous asked:Microaggressions….

I think the issue is microaggressions quite often are rarely intended to be malicious and people think they’re being nice without realizing how passively cruddy the comments can be, you know?

Exactly!!! 

I think another issue is people don’t understand how sensitive people who are a part of oppressed communities can be to microaggressions. 

Like she may have seen her posting that comment as just a simple mistake. She might be quite surprised if she actually knew how upset I was about it last night because to her it might not seem like a big deal. 

But as a trans person I’m extremely sensitive to comments about my presentation or my gender identity or anything like that. I constantly feel very defensive. So even if she made that comment not intending to be malicious or anything like that which is probably what happened it still made me go on the defensive and get upset. I hope that makes sense haha. 

YO I GOTTA SPEAK.

I’m seeing more and more “don’t vote for hillary” posts so let me state my opinion rn. Hillary Clinton is not a very good politician. She’s done some good things and some bad, but ya’ll need to keep in mind that she’s super pro corporate and has made huge mistakes as secretary of state.

HOWEVER, it’s april 2015 guys. There’s not much time left for other democratic candidates to hop on the elections bandwagon. The republicans have big names like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul running. There’s even talks that Marco Rubio and Jeff Bush might run. 

I think at this point in time, Hillary is by far the “strongest” candidate the democrats have as of now. While I definitely expect others to be part of the competition, I doubt that any other democratic candidates will be as popular as Clinton.

You guys are can vote however u want. Like many others, I myself will look into the republican candidates and see if any of them have something good to offer. But at the end of the day, there’s still a possibility that I will vote for her. Not because I’m fond of her, but because having her as president might be the best political option for me for the next presidential term.

would anyone wanna beta a hq fanfic for me later? i’m trying to get back into the groove of writing a bit again and feel like it might be a good idea to get my stuff read over once for mistakes or awkward wordings before i go and post it.

Haven’t really been posting on here too often, mostly because I’ve been trying to build good things for myself in “real life”. I’m enrolled in a course that might be a big mistake but I’m trying to take the positive from it and stay open minded for now. I missed out on tickets to see Haruki Murakami speak at the writers festival but I was proud of myself just for considering going alone, something I would never have done last year. After putting it off for well over a year I’m finally going to see someone about my anxiety. I’m meeting lots of interesting and sometimes challenging people

Hi , sorry for my inactivity , I’ve been sick all days after my test. I may start cosplay weapons tomorrow and maybe try my oral in English , I might post a video where I’m talking in English so you’ll may be helpful for me if you tell me I have a good/bad accent haha. And after that I think I’ll start my homework. Even if it’s holidays right now , I can’t lay in my bed without doing nothing , it’d be a big mistake for me haha. I have many things to do so as I said I’ll be some times absent so sorry if I’m not nany times here as before. You can understand me after all haha (schools) 😆👋💗
