"Are you sure that’s a real spell?" said the girl. "Well, it’s not very good, is it? I’ve tried a few simple spells just for practice and it’s all worked for me. Nobody in my family’s magic at all, it was ever such a surprise when I got my letter, but I was ever so pleased, of course, I mean, it’s the very best school of witchcraft there is, I’ve heard—I’ve learned all our course books by heart, of course, I just hope it will be enough—I’m Hermione Granger, by the way, who are you?”

having grown up with the HP series, i have said on multiple occasions that i am hermione granger. it’s no coincidence that we’ve never been in the same room, and i too am a magical bossy know-it-all with big hair who’s smart in school.

but now…now it’s OFFICIAL. and here are the pics to prove it~

On the other hand when I mentioned anthropology he promptly named its place in the Dewey Decimal system.  My brother comes home so tired he forgets what plates are, but he can tell you exactly where books about plates would be.

This is actually untrue, I pulled to the 900’s when I should have pulled to the 300’s, and I stewed about that for a while before realizing that archaeology is in the 900’s.  In any case, the conversation turned into this:

Megan: Where could I find a book on cats?
Me: 636
Megan: Where could I find a book on dogs?
Me: 636
Megan: Where could I find a book on bunnies?
Me: 636
Megan: Where could I find a happy book about bunnies that go to the moon?

Me: EFic

I literally follow my brother around the house asking where random topics are in the library and he never fails.  Not even on stuff like “butts.”

queer authors: make all your characters queer. every single one of them. leave no room for alternate cishet interpretations. make straight people uncomfortable. let them cry about how unrealistic it is that no one is cishet. bottle their tears and pour them over your morning pancakes. savor the taste of their discomfort.

Prince of Darkness by Barbara Michaels

I feel an overwhelming compulsion to find a copy of this book. My fondness for ridiculous gothic romances and “occult” thrillers with lurid cover art is NO BIG DEAL, STUNTHUSBAND, STOP GIVING ME THAT LOOK.

A few of the covers to some of the novels in the “Frankenstein Horror Series”.  I’m not sure how much this series had to do with Frankenstein or his monster other than a few books focusing on them.  Instead, the rest seem to be tales of mad science, the living dead and evil curses.

eatingsoapboxes said: how is this? i like the author, his zombie books are delightfully bleak

So far not a lot of action and kind of trying to emulate Stephen King’s “reminiscing old codger” style a bit much, but I’m only a couple dozen pages in.  I’m assuming he’ll hit his stride once the giant killer worms show up;
