POSSIBLY THE BEST CROSSOVER I’VE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE
BECAUSE ELIZABETH WOULD BE SO NOT INTO IT AND RELUCTANT TO TRY AND DRIFT WITH DARCY BECAUSE HE’S SUCH AN ASS HE’S SO HAUGHTY HE’S SUCH A FUCKING SNOB AND SHE HEARD HIM SAY THAT SHE’D BE AN INTOLERABLE DRIFT PARTNER SO FUCK HIM
BUT THEY SPARRED (DANCED OHMYGOD) AND THEY MOVED TOGETHER SO FLUIDLY AND SHE DID FEEL IT BUT SHE DOESN’T LIKE HIM!!! SHE CAN’T SHARE HER HEAD WITH A DUDE THAT MAKES HER SO FURIOUS
BUT HE TRAILS AFTER HER LIKE A FUCKIN PUPPY AND IS SUDDENLY ALL NICE AND TRIES TO DEFEND HIMSELF LIKE “I FIND IT HARD TO ATTEMPT LOOKING FOR DRIFT COMPATIBILITY IN OTHERS” AND ELIZABETH’S LIKE “WELL YOU SHOULD FUCKIN PRACTICE”
GIVE IT TO ME
#it is a truth universally acknowledge that a single man in possession of a good jaeger must be in want of a co-pilot #you were the last man in the world who i could ever be prevailed upon to drift with #and when she sees him in his element at pemberley she realizes how drift compatible they are #HE WAS EXACTLY THE MAN WHO IN DISPOSITION AND TALENTS WOULD MOST SUIT HER #as a co-pilot #His understanding and temper though unlike her own would have answered all her wishes #in terms of drift compatibility #It was a union that must have been to the advantage of both #while in the drift #by her ease and liveliness his mind might have been softened his manners improved #and from his judgement information and knowledge of the world she must have received benefit of greater importance #but then lady catherine is all YOU ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO DRIFT WITH A DARCY #ARE THE SHADES OF OUR JAEGER TO BE THUS POLLUTED #and elizabeth’s all HE IS A RANGER I AM A RANGER’S DAUGHTER THUS FAR WE ARE EQUAL #and darcy’s all if your feelings about drifting with me are what they were last april tell me so at once #my thoughts and wishes have not changed #and lizzy’s all MY FEELINGS? #and then they become co-pilots #and makeout on a raft #ahahaha ahahahaha #you follow this blog #i’ll show myself out (via waltzingdead)

Hey there, paranormal and urban fantasy. Why are you hiding?
No, really, why are you hiding? I rarely see this question developed in any serious way, but I quite often see it get skipped over entirely. I have, on many occasions, read books that merely said “I can’t tell anyone” and left the matter at that.
Too often the answer is one of mere genre convention. The characters in this book can’t tell because the characters other books haven’t told, so that’s simply the standard. But it so rarely makes sense.
- In the TMI books, why can’t the Shadowhunters come out of hiding?
- In Amanda Hocking’s Lullaby series, why can’t Gemma tell her family she’s a mermaid?
- In The Darkest Powers, why can Chloe not tell people she talks to ghosts?
- In Percy Jackson, why do the gods stay in hiding?
- In the Iron Fey, why are the fairies not frolicking around in front of everyone?
The most common excuse tends to be “no one would believe us,” but I would like to stand up right now and call bullshit.
Ten questions to ask a friend who just read your novel
Found this article. Found it incredibly helpful. Be sure to go read the full story, but these are the ten questions the author (Lydia Netzer) covers in it:
1. At what point did you feel like “Ah, now the story has really begun!”
2. What were the points where you found yourself skimming?
3. Which setting in the book was clearest to you as you were reading it? Which do you remember the best?
4. Which character would you most like to meet and get to know?
5. What was the most suspenseful moment in the book?
6. If you had to pick one character to get rid of, who would you axe?
7. Was there a situation in the novel that reminded you of something in your own life?
8. Where did you stop reading, the first time you cracked open the manuscript? (Can show you where your first dull part is, and help you fix your pacing.)
9. What was the last book you read, before this? And what did you think of it? (This can put their comments in context in surprising ways, when you find out what their general interests are. It might surprise you.)
10. Finish this sentence: “I kept reading because…”
They did it, they fucking did it.
can someone explain this to me
Thirty years ago a legendary ET game came to fruition, so awful that as the tale told, all unsold copies of it were buried in a pit in New Mexico. A documentary film crew has just unearthed the stash, proving the legend true.
OMG Rofl! I remember this game! The badness…it’s like suddenly remembering you’re the victim of an alien abduction. AND ALL THAT THAT IMPLIES.
