Books Everyone Should Read: The Modern Faery Tales Series
"Maybe no one gave me a name. Maybe I’m supposed to name myself."
"They say that nameless things change constantly—that names fix them in place like pins. But without a name, a thing isn’t quite real either. Maybe you’re not a real thing."
"I’m real," Kaye said.
— Holly Black
This is so gorgeous. Love the coffee and the rat!!!
Decided to compile some redesigned book covers I did over the past few years. I’ve been so busy lately that I forgot how much I enjoy doing these things. I hope I can take a break from everything for a while and get back on designing things just for the enjoyment of it!
if you don’t know this is from a game, don’t reblog it.
Because you’re not allowed to enjoy creative, smooth animation. How dare you reblog a thing.
You know what would be a thousand times more helpful than being a game snob?

Hugging people and getting picked up by them
Not having people to hug
Giving a hug that comes off as weird
This post describes me in every way

Clever people aren’t popular, by and large. They arouse suspicion. They don’t fit in. They can be useful, as I proved on a number of occasions, but among the general population there’s always a sense of vague mistrust, as if the very qualities that make them indispensable also make them dangerous.
The Gospel of Loki, by Joanne M. Harris
Wise words spoken by Loki. This book is so quotable. I love it.
Punishment is futile, of course. It does not stop crime, or undo the past, or make the culprit sorry. In fact, all it does is waste time and cause unnecessary suffering. Perhaps that’s why it’s the basis of so many world religions.
