Remember when I sent you that picture of me holding my copy of Captain Blood? ^_~

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS I do!!!! This is why I love you so much! People are never disappointed with Captain Blood. It’s just such an entertaining and epic read. It really is. 

It’s why I wrote my English major thesis on it in my senior year at SCU. It’s that good.

And you are THAT cool, my friend. <3

your fics are better than 80% of the books I've bought. if i could pay you for them i would, but not at the same time because it's fan fiction and i don't have to. heehee!

No, but in all honesty…I would never ask for money for my fan fiction. That’s the beauty of it. People writing epic masterful wonderful works of art…not for monetary gain. But to share their stories. To connect within a fandom. Because they’re passionate about a book, show, movie, video game, etc. I stand by my opinion that it’s one of the best things IN THE WORLD. I love fan fiction SO.MUCH. And anybody who tries to get money from it (coughELJamescough) is kind of a bummer. Let’s be real.

honesty hour (am i too late? i'm gonna go for no because tumblr time is different from real time) OKAY so if you could re-read/watch/consume any series or movie or set of stories for the first time, what would you pick? also you can go for "every time you read/watch/etc it is the first time" too idk.

AHHHHH!!! GOOD QUESTION, FRIEND!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hm.

1. CHUCK. Absolutely CHUCK. I’d love to watch it over again. So envious of all the people who are watching on Netflix now for the first time. Agghh!!!

2. The Thin Man series. Hearing those jokes for the first time…I absolutely fell onto the floor I was buzzing so hard from utter adoration. The BANTER!

3. I’d love to read Captain Blood by Rafael Sabatini for the first time again. Also Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. And probably the Harry Potter series as well!!

I’ll stop there even though I’m sure there are A BUUUUNCH more. 

Thanks for asking, mate!! <3

nico-di-angelcake:

making up your own fictional universe

creating an entire history for it

creating characters who have complex back stories

RESEARCHING NAMES WITH MEANINGS THAT CORRESPOND TO THE HISTORY AND UNIVERSE AND BACK STORIES YOU’VE COME UP WITH

then never writing or doing anything with it at all ever

Reblog if you have read fan fiction better than some published books

Unfortunate for the books, but speaks loads about the quality of some fan fics

You have no idea how many

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die - The Thin Man (1934)
    “The chemistry between Myrna Loy and William Powell was so potent in the 1934 film Manhattan Melodrama that its director, W.S. Van Dyke, cast the two again in the same year. As Nick and Nora Charles, they are unique in the history of cinema. The first popular husband-and-wife detective team, they not only love each other, they like each other, too, without being insipid, disrespectful, or dull.    Trying to make sense of the story gets in the way of what is genuinely important—the snappy banter full of covetable lines between the rich, sophisticated Nora and her sharp lush of a husband. Disarming an unwanted guest one night, the incident is reported in the morning news. “I was shot twice in the Tribune,” says Nick. “I read you were shot five times in the tabloids,” says Nora. “It’s not true. He didn’t come anywhere near my tabloids.” Said with cast-off ease, the lines are funny without jumping out as such. Nick may seem like an alcoholic, but he springs back and forth from relaxed giddiness to active sobriety in the wink of an eye. The couple’s prodigious boozing seems to have little effect on their actions; it’s more of an elegant prop—a vital element for a country just coming out of the Great Depression.    Taken from a novel written in the same year by Dashiell Hammett, Nick and Nora were supposedly modeled on Hammett’s relationship with playwright Lillian Hellman. Shot in fourteen days, this sparkling screwball detective story earned over $2 million and was nominated for four Academy Awards. Not surprisingly, popularity spawned four more movies as well as a radio and television series, and was the inspiration behind TV shows such as McMillian &amp; Wife and Hart to Hart.”
