So I went to go check on HamletMachine's amazing dA, and she drew fanart for fishbones
and the author, the amazing jisuk...and I discovered a great mafia fic.
I LOVE MAFIA FICS. I HAVE READ SO MANY YAKUZA MANGA AND
REALIZE I NEED MORE MAFIA BOOKS. But not only was it a mafia fic, it was also in HIGH SCHOOL, told from a non-mafia perspective, and had a GAY MAFIA DON(in training). HIGHSCHOOL AND MAFIA?!?!?!? SNARKY MAIN CHARACTER WHO IS STUDIOUS
AND LOYAL. So I love mafia/yakuza/mob stuff because -loyalty, violence, macabre themes, lots of potential for angst. And more. Suits...the charisma you need to lead a mob...the way they are so contrary. It almost broke my heart after 82 chapters, and in the last chapter IT MADE IT ALL BETTER. There is no sexing, so from the inception fics it was a big break. I like my porn, guys, but I like regular stuff just as well. I listened to Far East Movement's Fighting for Air THE WHOLE TIME. idek, really? And it was on youtube; I don't even have the mp3! @__@
Now onto reading Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss...which is one huge ass book
. 386,470 words. Well, I read like 100k + today for that story...
My brother sent it to me with my cousin and a Juxebox the Ghost
shirt for a birthday gift. :) its too big but WHATEVER. My cousin also took me to Quickly's for some milk tea and popcorn chicken as well as stationary shopping. My obsession for stationary is something totally, quintessentially azn about me. I can gush about stationary and stay in a stationary shop for HOURS. If I am in Hong Kong or something I CAN LIVE IN BOOKSTORES debating on what to get. But I basically got people birthday presents. :) I LOVE GIVING GIFTS. And all the cashiers spoke Mandarin and I got all nostalgic.
Ermm... I will get to my fanart of Rule 10, and maybe fishbones. I seriously have a sketch for Rule 10 just...SITTING there. *stares guiltily*
:) I will ignore hw, and have a fun weekend, as you will, also, I hope.
