kid lit is just infinitely better than young adult and adult literature

like literally, all the series i read as a kid, like Percy Jackson, and CHERUB, and Harry Potter, and Series of Unfortunate Events, and Dragonkeeper, and His Dark Materials, and so many more, are just so much better than a bunch of teen- and adult- novels

paranormal/fantasy fiction for older audiences are just utter trash. they either drag on for ever and ever with wanky prose that feels like the author hit ‘find synonyms for…’, and chose the longest one they could find, or they just have a terrible romantic plot that’s the focus of the novel, with no real adventure other than ‘we need something for the characters to do when they’re not kissing!’

idk i just miss the joy and the heart that came from my books as a kid. i don’t get that same joy with lit aimed towards my age. too much kissing, not enough fighting hydras and going on adventures.

so the person who took wolfchasing was actually me

i don’t remember making an origin account? like, ever????

what the fuck

someone’s registered ‘wolfchasing’ on origin already, and it sure as shit wasn’t me

what the fuck, i am offended

Eyyy I just became a Rooster Teeth sponsor! Very spur of the moment, and very glad I did it.

mikey omg it was awful, it had to be permanently struck from the record.

(god i’m gonna embarrass myself something fierce, but basically, the plot was the Doctor is constipated, and we’re gonna fuckign stop right there before i embarrass myself further.)

If Hugh Jackman can deadlift 405 pounds, he shouldn’t have settled merely for Marius. He could’ve picked up Enjolras as well. You know what, add Eponine. Street gamines can’t possibly weigh that much. Man let’s just add the whole of Les Amis (including Gavroche). It’s Hugh Jackman. He can take it.
