Welcome to the mouse pile! We have a lovely selection of furry mice to cuddle with and they each come with a helping of feels. Please excuse any and all screaming about NO. 6 which is THE ULTIMATE WEAKNESS, NICO DI ANGELO who must be PROTECTED AT ALL COSTS, HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON, MY PERSONAL SHENANIGANS and ANY OTHER FICTIONAL WORKS, as the dork feeding the mice can be a bit eccentric.
CREATIVE JUICES ARE FLOWING //YODELS [Spoilers for Destiny Rising under the cut!!! Yeah, that’s what you get for following the personal shit blog of a novelist. Deal with it,]
There is so much foreshadowing in this chapter and only someone who either knows what happens or is good at making connections between books will be able to spot it and it’s great //flops onto belly making happy noises// you don’t understand foreshadowing is my favourite literary technique to use
but I don’t plan write so I literally only know what’ll happen when I get to that part, but in Destiny Rising I’ve already planned and written out seven books so the work is literally halfway done already and I know what happens so I get to just go wild and when people will look back at the passages it’ll hit them like the author was warning me from the very beginning that this was what was going to happen what the fuck //flops onto back making more happy noises// also tian is getting a much bigger role in the entire thing have i mentioned that because it’s literally my favourite part and i’m using hope’s schizophrenia to explain why he can hear virgo and capricorn but it’s so much bigger than that and i love it i love everything about this //flops around making really happy noises//
THERE IS SO MUCH FORESHADOWING IN CORRUPTED //YODELS
OH SHIT BACKSTORY TIME MAN
Corrupted, Chapter III
“Lethe is cruel,” Lia says calmly, the fire spitting its embers up to the stars; I tear my eyes away from the celestials so I can look to the peculiar woman. She doesn’t look at either of us. “She does what she wants and says what she wills, and she doesn’t care if you get hurt. You’re a means to an end, and liable. She’s a liar.”
Zeph shifts a bit behind me, getting a bit more comfortable, and my hands press casually against his on my stomach as we both keep our gaze riveted to the woman a bit. She glances at him, and an unspoken question seems to go through them; he shakes his head, and she frowns.
Even though I’m curious, I don’t pry; he’s allowed to have his secrets. Instead, I look back to the flames and lean against him.
“She knew how much Ai means to me,” Lia continues, looking back to the flames as her voice drops from its heated hatred it spiked up to briefly. “She’s my only family; I even got to name her, because gods know if Lethe had had it her way she would’ve left her nameless.”
“What does it mean?” Zeph asks quietly, his voice almost a whisper in the silence of the evening. The moonlight dares not penetrate through the foliage above us, yet somehow that’s just fine. “I presume it has some sort of meaning, anyways – I could be wrong.”
“Love,” she supplies after a moment, and I notice she looks down towards her little sister. “You name a child after what you want them to become when they’re older – a prime example is you, Hope, or yours, Zephyr. My mother named me Cordelia before giving me to Lethe, in the hopes that perhaps I would one day learn to follow my heart in a world that has forgotten how.”
For a moment she pauses, her face showing nothing of her emotions as her eyes look at her sister’s face lit by the firelight.
“My mother never named my sister, and by doing so gave her the absence of a destiny. A mistake, she called her, a child she did not want and could not possibly ever want; I guess that only makes it fitting that she named her nothing.”
i feel like the weirdest thing in the whole world is that purses are considered to be like, for girls„„ in society……. i mean like……….. everybody has objects that need to be carried. why would that be a girl thing? carrying objects? a girl only thing?
