trc parallels

Aren’t you reminded sometimes of how Gansey was afraid “someone would fall on Ronan and cut themselves” in TRB but then the second he finds out that that someone is Adam he’s all like “don’t break him, Adam”, like he knows Adam Parrish is the only person in the world who could break Ronan’s heart? And whenever you’re reminded of it, don’t you feel compelled to post it publicly so that other people may suffer as much as you’re doing?

My favorite thing about the Raven Cycle is that it’s basically Marauders alternate universe fanfiction.

tbh Maggie makes such a point to talk about the music that influences her writing she really doesn’t have the right to criticize people who see the parallels between trc and badlands. she has every right to be angry about the inappropriate asks but she picked a fight purposely with Halsey blaming her for the inappropriate asks as if Halsey said “everyone go leave innuendo asks in Maggie’s inbox!” drive is so clearly not about sex and Maggie blew it up and picked a fight with her and blamed her for something she didn’t do. it was just an irrational argument and what took it over the edge was Maggie tweeting her fans making fun of Halsey and her popularity. that was a low blow to bring Halsey down and I am not here for it

same flame, yet divided {adam parrish/ richard campbell gansey iii: a mix for blind brothers longing for each other’s crowns}

“Adam, is this what you want? This?” He made an elegant, dismissive gesture toward the lower floor, pushing it all away from himself. Adam said, “I want to get out of Henrietta.” He knew it was cruel to say, even if it was the truth. Because of course Gansey would say — “I don’t.” “I know you don’t. Look, it’s not like I’m trying to …” He was going to say leave you behind, but that was too much, even with the champagne lapping shores. Gansey laughed terribly. “I’m a fish who’s forgotten how to breathe in water.” But Adam was thinking about the suppressed truth: The two of them were on perpendicular paths, not parallel ones, and eventually, they’d have to go different ways.”

Do you ever think about the similarities between the marauders + lily and the raven boys + blue because I’m

Seriously though.
James = Gansey. Both are a certified Rich Bitch and the Mom Friend™ as well as absolute sweethearts

Sirius = Ronan. Family problems + Badass vibes and a general lack of interest in staying within guidelines (bonus obsession with cool vehicles)

Remus = Adam. The quiet, calculating, scientist mind dealing with massive insecurities and having to manage something far bigger than them.

Peter = Noah. This is the only one that doesn’t really fit because Noah is my fave child who I adore and Peter is a snot rag coward sorry Peter fans I just Will Not

Lily = Blue. Both late additions into the group, both fabulous independent women who add a whole new dynamic aspect to the group and hold the respect of every member.

Just a thought.

Are we gonna talk about that time Gansey found the wasp on the window at Monmouth

And the scene was already heartbreaking enough

But now, we know that Gansey knew he was gonna die, wondering if this was it, thinking maybe it should be

And then Noah tells him, “Don’t throw it away,” which is sad anyways but then you realize those are also the last words Noah ever says before slipping out of time

flowerparrish  asked:

I've been poking the idea of a TRC au for the fox babies with a stick and then running away because like no, too much??? I love them all too much too many??? YOU CAN HAVE THAT ONE TOO IF YOU WANT IDK

HOW DID I GET TWO REQUESTS FOR RAVEN CYCLE AU GODDAMMIT JENNY okay give me a minute it’s been a while since i’ve read the books and my that i mean like 5 months here we go

THE CAST:

  • KEVIN this dumbass history nerd is obviously Gansey. He probably would be Gansey if he’d never gone into Exy. 
  • Aaron was a possible candidate for Gansey but now Ronan has a twin brother sorry Ronan 
  • And by Ronan I mean Andrew
  • ((Yall saw it coming))
  • NEIL IS ADAM what is this perfect or what
  • Nicky is basically Declan in terms of position
  • If Renee Walker isn’t Noah Czerny I will eat my own hand
  • Who is Blue??? ROBIN instead of a romance everyone just adopts her in consequence I can’t bring out any awkward flirting scenes anymore sobs i’ll fix this)
  • Dan, Allison, and Katelyn are Robin’s scary aunts. Dan is Calla, Allison is Orla, and Katelyn is Persephone (hEE H A w im sorry that just sort of happened)
  • This means Matt’s the Grey Man
  • Jeremy is Henry Cheng except everyone loves him because he’s legitimately cool
  • WYMACK IS PROFESSOR MALLORY Kevin’s pigeon-loving professor of Dad
  • I’m gonna do it I’m gonna do it Jean Valbean is Helen, Riko is another Gansey but Tetsuji is DADSEY

AND ALSO:

  • ANDREW THREW RENEE OUT THE WINDOW i’m sorry i just had to get that out of the way
  • It turns out Andrew dreamed Aaron up oops and Nicky is there trying to protect him
  • Imagine Neil going from looking at Andrew “wow this asshole i can’t stand him” Minyard to looking at Andrew “you are an actual God” MinyaOH WAIT THAT’S ALREADY CANON
  • Thea is there because she refuses to leave and drops in to beat up Kevin every once in a while and correct people on their history mistakes because people aren’t nerding about exy here they’re nerding about HI S T O R Y
  • Instead of Neil hitting on Robin he continuously keeps trying to help her and check if she’s okay because he saw her at Nino’s and was like ‘wow i see myself in her’ but she keeps misunderstanding him and continuously runs away and Neil’s just like “?????? WHY DO I FEEL LIKE THE BAD GUY”
  • Neil’s home life :’(
  • THE ENTIRE TEAM BEING DRIVEN AROUND BY ANDREW WHILE THE MURDER SQUASH SONG PLAYS
  • Kevin finding Andrew drunk off his ass in the church and babbling to baby birds 
  • Can you imagine Aaron reacting to be a literal figment of Andrew’s imagination like the lOOK on his FACE i mean year that would suck immensely but LATER, WHEN THINGS ARE OKAY,
  • Robin like questioning Kevin about the old man he talks to on the phone. “Is that your dad?” and Kevin just scoffs, “No my actual dad is horrible” except proFESSOR WYMACK IS ACTUALLY HIS DAD
  • JEAN RIDING AROUND IN A HELICOPTER AND PICKING KEVIN UP FROM HIS GROUP DATES
  • God Drake must be Kavinsky but that also mean Kevin fucking Day crashed his party and started blowing shit up just to rescue Andrew 
  • NEIL AND ANDREW IN THE BARN. HANGING WITH THE COWS. GAZING INTO EACH OTHER’S EYES. (Andrew: [leering] 94%, Neil: (wha t the fuc ckk when did he get so attractive wha thr eufc k wha))
  • ANDREW DREAMS UP MANIBUS. FOR NEIL’S HANDS.
  • It’s because Neil is self-conscious about the scars his father left on them
  • Instead of Andrew always trying to physically fight Nicky he’s just always trying to avoid Nicky trying to bring him to social events and the only time he’ll accept it is if it’s an ice cream social
  • Renee and the snow globe. What a doll.
  • MATT COMES OVER TO FIGHT THE LADIES OF 300 FOX WAY AND DAN FUCKING PUTS HIM IN HIS PLACE. Matt would be like the worst assassin though can you imagine that boy is so pure
  • ROBIN AND HER NEW FOUND FAM
[theory] Syaoran is the cloaked figure

I’d like to propose the most twisted reveal they could do for this series, given that it’s CLAMP we’re talking about. Musings and ramblings under cut.
Spoilers for TRC mention.

exquistes  asked:

Hi Maggie! Sooo the parallels between trc and the wizard of oz. Am I making that up?

Dear exquistes,

You did make that up! What else have you made up? Here is a thing I made up: the word “prossibly.”

Man, we’re creative forces, you and I. I’m proud of us.

urs,
