would buy this book

anonymous asked:

will looks like such a pretty nerd in that fbi photo like, it's no wonder hannibal fell so hard look at that soft puppy *~*

I read your ask and was smothered with the image of Will Graham being a giant comic book nerd (his dad would buy him comics as a kid because they were cheap and Will liked to read and he could walk into a gas station/grocery store and pick one up/let Will choose whichever one without being worried about the price

Will would grow up and save his money from the odd jobs he takes to buy a ticket to a comic convention and get hit on by literally every single person because he really is the prettiest nerd with those curls and those big glasses he wears to avoid any and all eye contact and those gorgeous eyes that change color depending on the light framed by thick pretty lashes–he’s devastating–and all he wants to do is to buy that damn rare comic he heard was going to be sold here, but the social aspect is killing him, it feels like every five minutes he has to step outside and get some air away from all those emotions and then get hit on again

and then when he finally can order his merch online? And he has a stable job with some spare income? He can’t stop himself from buying that limited edition Captain America

and all this culminates in Will living on the first floor of his two story house, Hannibal asking why he doesn’t use the second floor and Will wondering which would scare Hannibal ‘loves classical music and likes to slip French into every other damn sentence and would probably rather die than eat a Big Mac’ Lecter more, Will secretly liking how he felt when he killed or the fact that the reason he lives on the first floor of his house is because every room of the second story is filled wall to wall with boxes of comics.)

(answer: Hannibal asks to read his favorite comic book–because love–and Will word vomits his nerdiness at him at such a rate Hannibal’s pants are off and Will is showing him his favorite panel of bare chested Captain Rogers.)

Don't take this as anon hate, because it's not. I just realized that I don't share any common interests with you anymore, and that makes me sad cause you were one of the first blogs I followed :(. I do want to buy your books when I get the money, but I think I am going to unfollow you...It makes me really really sad too...

you know, plenty of people have continued following me long after i stopped posting anything relevant to their interests. 

but that’s fine, you know, i don’t mind?

i don’t get why people tell me they’re unfollowing me. 

i don’t take it personally unless you make it personal. 

i don’t KNOW you guys and you don’t really know me. 

unfollowing me isn’t like, not talking to me at school, lmao, a blog is just a blog. 

au revoir, anon, and thanks if you do decide to buy my books. 

if you ever saw art/a tshirt/a book/anything and thought “wow, i would really buy this”, ask yourself why and them immediately use whatever the reason is in your art

anonymous asked:

What kind of book genres would the boys like or prefer? Or any topic certain topics they would like?


He doesn’t buy books. He mostly just reads whatever his mum does; whatever looks new, when he has time, he picks out from the bookshelves at home. There’s so many books but he just doesn’t have any preference when reading. Ushijima says there’s some discipline to not dumping books away after not liking the first few pages.


He doesn’t have much of a preference but he’ll mostly read stuff that’s considered a classic in the West since he feels like they’re a glimpse of history that he won’t really get to look on in class. While Of Mice and Men and Lord of the Flies may just be some class texts in the West, he genuinely enjoys reading them.


He loves to read speculative fiction that forces you to think rather than just taking you on a stroll of a journey. The works of Margaret Atwood and Kazuo Ishiguro are things he finds himself rereading often because he knows you can always find new things. The lack of proper resolution in their books isn’t even bad to him since it means you “make up your own ending” for the characters. 


While he would consider manga for this, upon “real literature” (which he hates people saying) he’d say that horror is his favourite genre. Tendou knows that it’s hard to write good horror, he’s tried himself, but he’s never able to create the intense feelings that his favourite authors like Mariko Koike and Koji Suzuke. He’s used the basis of these works for a fair few pranks.


Fantasy books have this guy’s heart on lock; JK Rowling, Nahako Uehashi and Rick Riordan are just some of his favourites but he could never honestly say that he could pick favourites. (He’s lying; his favourite series is the Percy Jackson series because his big brother introduced him to the books.)


Despite his love for reading, he hasn’t even touched half of the stuff that he’s bought. Half of the time, instead of just saying “hon” (the normal word for books) he’s using the word “tsundoku”, referring to all the materials he’s piled up. It’s actually just all non-fiction, mostly science that he swore he would read for class but never actually bothered about in the end.


Inside his cold ass dead heart… he fucking loves old romance novels. You won’t catch him reading a paperback in public but that’s what his kindle is for; at least nobody’s looking over his shoulder. He likes stuff like Haruki Murakami, Natsume Sōseki and Osamu Dazai. If he isn’t hooked by the first chapter, he’s dumping it.


The thing is… he doesn’t read. He would love to but all he ever has the time for is small articles he can view on his phone on the way to wherever he is. He really likes books with samurai or basically anything set in the past. Yamagata really liked the book Shōgun by James Clavell but he only vaguely remembers reading the others. (Hey, if you barely remember the books, can you even say you enjoyed them Yamagata?)

anonymous asked:

do you ever feel like your fanfics could work as an original novel? i just finished reading ch29 and at the end i was like "...if this was a book i would buy it 200 times and give it to all my friends everywhere"

Nope! My fan fiction formats and original fiction formats are completely different, and all my fics are tailored to fit the fandom I’m writing for. 

Lucky Us would not survive as an original novel.

But I’m glad you like it so much!! :D

All right I got like five requests to tell the story of the Shakespeare Mansplainer, so: 

Today I went to the bookstore to buy the Arden edition of ’Tis Pity She’s a Whore because I need it for one of my term papers. But I looked at my punchcard and realized buying it would get me a free book, and because I’m standing right there in the drama section I start browsing around. Enter the Mansplainer. Now, I can only assume that this guy saw me flip through a few books and put them back and decided I didn’t know what I was doing. Mansplainer to the rescue. Up he swaggers. Now, this guy is average-looking but so am I, so at first when he says, “Oh, are you looking for some Shakespeare?” I’m willing to entertain the possibility that he might be worth flirting with or at least talking to, but he literally doesn’t give me enough time to even answer the question before he says, “You know–” And this is like, the most fatal phrase in a dude’s vocabulary, because as soon as he says it odds are 90 to one he’s about to start telling you what he thinks you don’t know. So I shut my mouth. I shut my mouth and I stand there and smile and nod like I’m in utter awe of all his manly wisdom while he proceeds to tell me every wrong “fact” he learned about Shakespeare in secondary school. For those of you who don’t know me, here’s what makes this hilarious: I’m getting a master’s degree in Shakespeare. I’ve been a Shakespearean actor for ten years. I’ve written a fucking book about Shakespeare. I know more about Shakespeare than this guy knows about breathing.

Anyway, for two, maybe three minutes I let him go on about how the balcony scene in Romeo and Juliet is actually a sonnet and they were both like thirteen because that’s how young people got married in England in the 1700s and so on and so on. (All of this is wrong, by the way.) Towards the end he starts to flounder, because he was clearly expecting me to jump in and start cooing like a fucking pigeon about how romantic it all is or whatever the Great Mansplainer expects a woman to do when he dazzles her with his dizzying intellect. He finally finishes with a showstopping, “So, yeah.” And this is my cue. So I say, “Actually,” and then proceed to correct literally everything he said while I beam at him like the fucking sun because I want to watch his ego shrivel up like a fucking raisin. And it does. By the time I’m done (which only takes half the time because if women take up more than 25% of a conversation men think they’re dominating it and I’m 100% certain his little Mansplainbrain would just explode under the stress) he’s physically taken two steps away from me and is looking toward the door like he’s grappling with some intense fight-or-flight instinct. So I stop and smile again and because I just can’t resist I wave my staff pass and say, “Sorry, I need to go now, I have to be at the Globe in twenty minutes.”

And that is the story of the time a guy tried to mansplain Shakespeare to me and I will cherish the look on his face until the day I die.

Do you think jimin notices when kookie is staring? (i think he does but just pretends he's oblivious, this little sexy mochi shit knows what he's doing omg) Like legit someone else could be talking but then you see kookie turning his head and staring at jimin and when jimin finally looks at back him kookie looks away.

^ Source. That’s the look of a manggae who knows he’s got it all, okay.

Why did no one every tell me that Onew decided one day to sing opera, and SM was like, sure?

And then he decided to choose an incredibly famous piece to do it with?

And then he decided in 2016 to bring it back, because he had something to prove?

Which just so happened to be that his voice has only gotten better after surgery?

Like seriously, watch these two performances. The first is from 2011, and well before he got vocal chord surgery. Then listen to the second, from 2016. Not only did he sound good in the first one, he improved in the second one. By a lot. The comments are full of Italians impressed by his pronunciation. In the first one, you can hear him struggle on the high note just a bit. He doesn’t even waver in the newer one. 

Basically, his vocal coach wasn’t lying when he said Onew got better after surgery.

Now, Pavarotti can never be surpassed, especially on Nessun Dorma. But holy shit can Onew sing. He has a voice that is he decided to sing the phone book, I would buy it so damn fast, it would give me whiplash.

Oh, and for extra emphasis, here he is singing it on a variety show. In case you thought it was a recording or something.

BTS reaction to you learning Korean


Jin would think it’s really cute that you’re trying to learn the language. He would try to help you study and get better at it. He would chuckle when you said something wrong, but he would politely tell you the right way to say or write what you were trying to. “You’re doing great, sweetie! Keep up the good work!”

He would be super supportive and do his all to make sure that you still were enjoying learning the language. He wouldn’t hesitate to correct your wording, either. “No, it’s pronounced like this. Give it another try~.”

He would be more than excited to have you learning his native language. Hobi would buy you some books and DVDs to help you learn quicker, along with him helping you. He would be so impressed with how well you were doing he couldn’t help but get you a surprise. “Baby!! You’ve been doing so well with learning that I just had to get you a new necklace!”

He would teach you in the same way he taught himself English. He would help you study, go over things with you, and be super sweet about the whole thing. Namjoon would help you anytime you asked him and just be proud of you learning so quickly. “You’re doing really well! Let’s review one more time though, babe.”

Originally posted by shinenamjoon


He would be really impressed by all the progress you were making with learning the language. Jimin would laugh when you pronounced something wrong, but only because he thought it was so cute. He wasn’t a very good teacher, but he’d help you study when you had free time. “You’re so amazing, princess! You learn so fast!”

Tae would love to help you study every chance he got. He would try to make up some question or make little sentences for you to translate. Every time you got one right, he would give you a little kiss. “Jagi, you must have been studying since you’re getting all my kisses!”

Originally posted by chimmychimm


Jungkook would think it’s adorable that you’re learning it just for him. He’d ask Namjoon for little tips on how to help you study and learn faster. He would often take you out for diner when you did well on a test in your classes. “If you keep doing so well, my wallet will be empty!”

For my fifty-sixth Evangelion book review, here is Evangelion Shin Gekijouban: Q E-conte Shuu (Evangelion New Theatrical Edition: Q Storyboards Collection), published by Groundworks.  This is a new book that just came out this week, and it is devoted to storyboards for the Evangelion: 3.0 movie.  (If you also want to see storyboards for the Evangelion: 1.0 and 2.0 movies, check out my fifty-fourth and fifty-fifth book reviews.  Or for storyboards from the original Evangelion TV series, take a look at my twenty-seventh review!)

This book is not available in English or French, but there are plenty of pictures.  It also has a removable dust jacket, however there isn’t any alternate cover art hidden underneath.  But that’s okay, because the book has plenty of interesting stuff inside, such as this lovely scene when Shinji sees Kaworu playing the piano:

The column on the left is for dialogue (or other sometimes other audio for the scene), the column in the middle is rough sketches of the visuals for the scene, and the column on the right has additional instructions such as camera directions.  However, as you can see above, sometimes the visuals are just too big to be contained in only one column… the topmost shot of Kaworu at the piano was so large that it extended into the left and right columns!

Keep reading for the rest of the book review, plus a few more pictures!

turncoat: in defense of andromeda tonks nee black

The day after Andromeda’s world ended, she woke to a house full of life.

She rolled out of bed in soft pajamas, bare feet. One pillow was mussed and crumpled. The other was untouched, plumped just the way Ted liked it. She leaned against the headboard, pale fingers gone paler from squeezing the wood.

Her knees were creaking, her joints aching. She was forty three and she felt like she had at least a century brittling her bones. Morning light, grey and dim, dropped through the crack in the curtains, shattered to the floor. There was a sniffle. There was a crescendo of an infant’s cry. Andromeda wrapped an old blanket around her shoulders and went to her grandson.

If she had picked up the newspaper on her front step (she wouldn’t) she would have seen the garbled headlines first trying to make sense of the smoldering remains of the Battle of Hogwarts. THE END OF OUR TERROR? the Prophet screamed.

When Andromeda went out into the rest of the house with Teddy nestled into her shoulder, she had to step cautiously over sleeping bodies. In one corner, a boy with disheveled hair and crooked glasses was passed out on her living room floor, wrapped around a lithe redhead. Harry had insisted on coming to tell her about Nymphadora and Remus in person. The rest of the snorers on her floor had insisted on coming with him. Andromeda had insisted that if they tried to leave again in that state, exhausted and unfed, they’d end up passed out in a ditch somewhere and not just because she’d send a curse after them.

She didn’t know them yet. She didn’t know Harry would spend hours on all fours when Teddy was learning to crawl, demonstrating proper form, while Ginny laughed and cheered them both on with Lee Jordan-style commentary. She didn’t know Molly Weasley would fold herself bossily, comfortably, into Andromeda’s Saturday afternoons with teacakes and preserves, her mending and her sharpest gossip, kindest words.

Andromeda didn’t know that the bushy haired girl curled up on the couch would teach Teddy to read, buy him Muggle science books and help him make a potato battery for a lightbulb, that the lanky redhead bent like a long-limbed question mark at the foot of the couch would become Andromeda’s newest, brightest chess arch nemesis.

Little Teddy on one shoulder, Andromeda went barefoot into the kitchen to get down her daughter’s favorite mug and fill it full of steaming tea. Andromeda let it overbrew, watching sleeping chests, backs, ribs, stomachs rise and fall, breathe, shake. When she finally rolled the bitter liquid over her tongue, she clung to the mug, didn’t let it break the silence.

Launch (Blurb)

One last blurb before we all die. R.I.P us.


You can feel the bed shift with Harry’s weight as the sudden movement jolts you out of sleep. You don’t know what time it is, but it must be the middle of the night because you went to bed just before midnight and feel as though you’ve been asleep for a few hours at least.

The room is dark as you blink your eyes open and turn, only to find your suspicions confirmed and Harry no longer beside you. His half of the blanket is bunched down near the foot of the bed and you just barely see the bedroom door close softly behind him as he leaves the room and heads down the hallway.

You’re still half asleep but the absence of his body next to yours is enough to wake you up a bit. It’s unusual for Harry to get out of bed in the middle of the night, other than when he needs a quick run to the toilet, but the bathroom that is connected to your bedroom is not where he’s gone this time.

You groan and throw the blankets off of your own body, shivering a bit as the cool air hits your bare skin and your toes hit the carpet. You pick up a discarded jumper that Harry threw on the floor the evening before and slip it over your head, crossing your arms and tiptoeing across the room until you reach the door.

Harry has turned the hall light on, causing you to squint at the sudden intrusion of brightness. You follow the hallway until you round the corner into the kitchen. He’s turned a dim light on in there as well and you can see him sitting at the table with an empty mug in front of him; you can hear the tea kettle bubbling on the counter and he doesn’t seem to notice you standing there.

You can tell by the look on his face that something is on his mind. Harry doesn’t get up and get tea in the middle of the night, typically; he’s a pretty solid sleeper once he’s actually down for the count.

“Hey,” you say, breaking the silence.

Harry looks up, the frown lines on his forehead vanishing when he sees you standing there.

“Hi. Sorry, I didn’t mean t’wake you. Was tryin’ to be quiet.”

“It’s okay,” you yawn, stepping further into the kitchen, “I can always use a cup of tea at 3 a.m.”

You wink at him and he smiles, reaching out his arms to pull you into them as you settle on his lap with your hands clasped together behind his neck.

“What’s on your mind, lovebug?” you ask, resting your head on his shoulder, “You should be sleeping; got a busy day coming up.”

“S’what’s on my mind,” he replies, turning his head to nuzzle his nose into you a bit, “Tomorrow…or, I guess, today.”

“You nervous?”

He nods, swallowing a bit as the tea kettle continues to boil behind you.

Y oo what is your fav headcanoons for voltron/pairings?

rubs my grubby fly hands together

  • There are times when Voltron has formed and they’re flying and Lance out of nowhere will scream “EVERYBODY WAS KUNG FU FIGHTING!” and PIdge will shriek “HA! HYUAH!” and judo chop the air as Hunk makes Voltron swing its leg like a madman and it scares the shit out of Shiro and Keith
  • Every night when Keith is asleep, Lance sneaks into his room and cuts off like a millimeter of hair on one side of Keith’s head and its such a small amount that Keith doesn’t notice until a month of this nonsense and suddenly he realizes that he has a lopsided mullet and proceeds to very nearly strangle Lance to death
  • Pidge finds joy in being electrocuted
  • Literally she was the kid who stuck things in outlets to be zapped and one day Shiro walks in on Pidge about to zap two wires together without wearing safety gloves and she stops and stares at Shiro and Shiro stares at her and they both just stare until Pidge slowly lowers the wires to the floor and gets up and walks away
  • Before going into the Garrison, Lance wanted to be an interior designer and had a sketchbook back on Earth where he drew room designs and he had a pile of staging books that his family would buy him on his birthday on his desk and it makes him sad that he can’t move any furniture around in the Castle because it’s all superglued to the damn floor smh
  • Keith understands like zero (0) movie references because he never was big into movies or tv shows so basically everything Lance ever says goes way over his head but this one time, they’re on a planet and a villager says they have to go into this giant dark cave to meet their leader and Keith goes “I’ve got a baaad feeling about this” and Lance literally stops walking and is like “….Did you just make a Star Wars reference, you crazy hermit?” and Keith is like “?? Duh, Star Wars is the greatest franchise in cinematic history” and Lance just throws his hands up in the air and walks away
  • Pidge teaches all of the paladins how to braid hair by using Allura’s as practice bc its so long and pretty and she likes feeling pampered and having her hair played with so they all sit in a circle and chat and take turns while Pidge explains what nail polish is to Coran and its all very cute

Summary: A sweet romance in a quaint bookstore.

A corner or two away, sandwiched between a bakery and a café on a street that led to your house, was a quaint bookstore. The bookstore was the type that had aisles of shelves, lined from roof to floor with the register buried somewhere deep in the back corner, unseen and ignored until the customer actively searched for it once they were ready to check out. The shelves were constantly full as well and the books were slightly worn as it was also a second-hand shop. Though worn, it was still well kept and hidden jewels and brand new books could be found among them.

bowandbat  asked:

If you're giving chapters titles, do you have to do it for all of them? Or can I put titles on just certain chapters?

I’d really suggest being consistent with this sort of thing. If you really want chapter titles for some of them, you’ll probably want to do all of them or it’s going to look very strange. Titling chapters usually serves to tell the reader what the point of the chapter is, it can indicate that each chapter is serving as a kind of ‘episode’ within the larger narrative. On the other hand, plain chapter headings just act as neutral dividers to break up long texts into arcs. 

Let’s take a look at a couple of tables of contents and see what we think of them.

This is a very straightforward table of contents, there are 21 chapters in this book and it’s a fairly standard romance novel plot. There’s no need for chapter titles because chapters just serve to divide the action into coherent chunks. There are a few chapters where the Point of View shifts from one protagonist to the other, but aside from that it’s pretty simple.

Onto our next example:

This second example is slightly different, this episodic series has two main protagonists who often alternate POV, but it also sometimes features a prologue and/or epilogue from a third, antagonistic character. These are the tables of contents from the first two parts of the series. The Prologues and Epilogues featuring the antagonist POV are titled with his name, while the other chapters, switching between the protagonists, are simply numbered chapters.

The most important thing about these is that they are consistent. There are 19 episodes in this series, and every single one of them adheres to these same title conventions for chapters.

Third example:

Each of the chapter titles in Les Miserables is titled, indicating what that chapter is going to be about. Like many novels of its time, Les Miserables was published as a serialised novel, broken up so that it was cheaper to print and so that the public would need to buy multiple books to get the whole story – it was also much cheaper to begin printing a serialised story, because if it doesn’t sell well you haven’t printed the whole 700 page brick, just the few chapters that you’ve put out so far.

But getting away from the old publishing business, each chapter encompasses a different field of interest within the story, the chapters are named for their principal contents. In a lot of old books that were serialised, the chapter name serves as the title for that instalment of the serial.

As a contrast, here’s an example I’ve mocked up for an interesting story where the chapters are inconsistently titled.

I mean I could see something like this working in very specific works, and I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a Douglas Adams book that did something like this, but in the most part it’s confusing and it looks unprofessional.

The important things are that:

  • Your chapter titles are consistent
  • Your chapter titles are fitting for the themes and atmosphere of the story
  • OR that your chapters are numbered simply and unobtrusively
  • Prologues and Epilogues are sometimes titled while the rest of the chapters are simply numbered, or else they are often simply titled ‘Prologue’ or ‘Epilogue’
  • Occasionally with shifting POV you’ll see a format like “Chapter 1: (character A’s name), Chapter 2 (character B’s name)” (similar to chapter 4 in the above mockup) to indicate the POV shifts, again, the key is consistency, if you choose a chapter naming convention, you’ve got to do the same for each chapter
