McHanzo Week 2016, Day 3 - Alternate Universe Who doesn’t love the good old Hogwarts AU? Today there’s a bonus one because I really love this AU <:3c tbh I made the second one like a month ago but shh ((ALSO THEY SWAP SCARVES ISNT’T IT CUTE i mean can they do it if they’re in other houses? eh ¯\_(ツ)_/¯))
Can you do a got7 reaction to you forcing them to go shopping with you (you being gf) love your blog
JB: He honestly would have rather spent the time at home but he’s not going to voice his opinion aloud. He might be a little less enthusiastic about going shopping but that’s only because he’d be pushing himself hard at work and while he loves spending time with you he could use some leisure time. He’ll go but he’ll eventually want to go home after a while.
Aetherborn spontaneously came into being on Kaladesh as a byproduct of the aether refinement process. Their bodies are in constant flux, as the aether residue they’re made of gradually dissolves and is reclaimed by the aethersphere. Thus, their lives are short. But rather than despair, they savor each fleeting moment, squeezing out every last drop of enjoyment.
Some Aetherborn, referred to as the “gifted”, can draw life essence from other beings into themselves to prolong their own existence.

*Me starting to write this post*: Oh my god this book is literally so amazing where do I even begin???
Basically Buffy the
Vampire Slayer if Buffy was a Chinese-American millennial trying to get
into an Ivy League school.
Genie Lo is just chilling at school (and when I say ‘chilling’
I mean hyperventilating over college and essay crisising like any standard high
school overachiever) when attractive asshole new kid Quentin Song barrels into
her life, claiming that his true identity is the Monkey King Sun Wukong, and
that she is destined to help him battle demons that have escaped from hell and
are now besieging her home town.
Takes the standard formula of a paranormal high school YA, but rejuvenates it with a fuck tonne of Chinese mythology and #ownvoices
rep, along with a serious dose of humour that had me actually laughing out loud
on the bus to work.
A full Chinese/Chinese American cast.
Accurate Chinese mythology used to interesting ends!
A strong, multi-faceted female lead who is both badass and
angry but also awkward and uncertain in an honest and relatable way.
Some seriously awesome romance – really, he may have a monkey
tail, but you’ve just got to go with it.
Body-positivity!! I loved the chapter which involved a
discussion of beauty standards, and how Genie’s insecurities become a source of
A unique, light hearted and effortlessly funny writing
style. So much sarcasm. So many jokes. I laughed aloud so many times. It’s such
a fun read!
Just a really good book that literally exemplifies everything
that is good and pure and awesome about YA.
