🚨 As a notice: 🚨

If you want to join Standard Mastodon (instead of a fork) on a quiet instance (I'm by far the most active member 🤣 ) please DM me for an invite to Booktoot dot club, an instance for discussing books and other stuff (it is not a crime to discuss podcasts or riverdale or videogames or whatever lol).

I love this instance, and I would love to have more book-buddies! 🥰

Okay since no one nominated anything this week, energy seems kinda low so I'm just nominating / mandating Aristotle & Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz for October. I normally wouldn't, but it was such a close poll last time that I feel like I'd be doing it a disservice to not have the club read it.

25+ person (they/them please)
This is my book, podcast, and TV account. Riverdale tooting is supposed to happen on this account, but it usually can't be contained!

Fave books: The Book of Lies Trilogy (Agota Kristof),
Song of Achilles (Madeline Miller)
Wayward Children Series (Seanan McGuire)

I run which I hope to resurrect this year if there's interest.

Storygraph is in the profile, I'm also on if you happen to be!

I hold the distinction of being one of two people (at least in the Western World) that have read both Brave Story and the Book of Heroes, both by Miyuki Miyabe.

When reading a new book, do you...? #books

Tsundoku boosted

It's a bit embarrassing, but I keep forgetting I have a book I'm supposed to be marketing.

Yeah, so...

Reimund thinks he has it made. Mildthryth isn't having any of it.

Bound by His Oath is a gender-flipped take on historical romance, now available for pre-order on Amazon and other etailers.

Make sure your library has this book and check it out. It looks SO good. It was published in 2010 originally, but it has been updated with new information since.

Didn't Disney also want to make its own version of Simon Vs the Homo Sapiens agenda? If this is the way they're treating a spinoff, it does *not* bode well for that movie

Give me the Regency romances about the lower-class peoples! About gay maids getting together!!!

Come on, NoveList, give me an option for this, I'm sure I'll be flooded with books that do this

(no I won't lol)

I'm true to my word and I'm conversing with tech support.

Show thread

okay it's not still on my wishlist, maybe I need to tell tech support.

by the way, how to be an anti-racist is on sale on kobo (And presumably elsewhere) for 5 dollars if you haven't already picked it up.

If one of y'all buys it, that makes it worth it in my opinion lol

Show thread

I bought How to Be an Anti Racist when it was on sale (on kobo) like several weeks ago.

For some reason, it STILL informs me whenever it's on sale.

And then informs me I already own it.

Like, I bought it from the kobo site. Wouldn't it know?

I'm gonna see if there's some weird issue with my wishlist. maybe it's time to purge a bunch of stuff

ewww Novelist STILL uses the term "Ability Diverse" . One of these days I'm going to do some digging to find out who to talk to (preferably via email) and ask them to change it to "Disabled"

Show thread

Though I DID have the idea to open up NoveList and see if maybe I can find Romances that meet my scrutiny (nah I'm just picky lol) and see if the library has them

Show thread

If this WERE the sort of Social Media Webbed Site with brands, I'd block all of them except whoever runs the Libby App's social media, and then yell at them as if they are personally responsible for the fact I can't sort romance books by Tropes like Enemies to Lovers or Fake Dating

#introduction #introductions Hello, my name is Star, I'm a 34 year old polyam, autistic, plural system (name of Circ), Here to connect with people, and talk about art, gaming/dev, disability, and queer stuff.

I stream gamedev and gameplay. I'm always looking for new friends to play games with or just chill and talk to. I'm @jessmahler 's partner #gaming #art #polyam #disability #autistic #plural

Wait The Hate U Give just got to paperback? I don't want to check, but I'm wondering if it's off the NYT Bestseller list "finally" (after how many years) or if it's just about accessible demand. (personally I only buy a book in hardcover 95% of the time once I've read it and want it on my shelf, otherwise if I buy it, it's paperback. Which is... weirdly reverse of the publishing industry)

SO hey, @WanderingBeekeeper is moving and is looking to sell off the remainder of his maille jewlery stock (presumably because they're a pig to pack up). Katie bought a couple of his pieces and they're some of her favorite wearable things.

There's earrings, necklaces, chokers, and bracelets in some very nice colorways, including a bunch of pride colors!

Cask of Amontillado Lemon 

One Thousand Heartbreaks
By
:lapis:

A / N : Montresor and Fortunato and Amontillado belong to Edgar Allen Poe! I DO NOT OWN THESE CHARACTERS!!!!!! Pls no sue T_T. Sowwy if they're a bit OOC (that means out-of-character you bakas!) Anyway pls review! _^

Ps: thanks to my beta kit who had gr8 suggestions!

《《《》》》
"Nemo me impune lacessit." A foot crushes the biting snake. And Montresor was fortunate, despite his misfortunes, to have a large trouser snake ( XDDDDD).
His dick hardened everytime he saw Fortunado gulp down the wine. To have that mouth, that throat around his dick! It would be divine! But there was the matter of revenge. The 1000 injuries.
If he could kis--no. kill Fortunato, Montessori would live a wonderful life. Alone.
Fortunado had that BICTH Lady Fortunato, but Montresor had no one.

No one had seen him through the ups and downs of his life as much as his enemy, Fortornado.

Fortunately the sexy fool took another swig (don't drink if ur underage!!!!) And swayed.

"Here let me chain you up so you don't fall down," Montresor found himself saying.

Fortunato took another sip and raised an eyebrow. "Tis a bit kinky is it not?"

Montresor blushed. Fortunato was always getting the better of him. No more. "Shut up," he cooly said as he started binding him.

"We haven't done anything like this since our school days." As he swayed he began, "Monty do you...? No. It's nothing. It's stupid."

"What is it?"

Fortunato wouldn't meet his eyes. "Do you... Do you have the Amontillado bottle?"

Of course. It was about the damn alcohol.

This was the 1001th Heartbreak he'd endured at the hands of Fortunado, and he knew Fortunado could really use those hands. He was tired of this. Better to be alone then to be amongus bakas.

Montresor gave him a bottle of Cider, in the hopes of sobering him up since he was already tied up.
"Try this. It's even better than Amontillado."

The smile on Fortunato's face was kirei (that means beautiful!!!!!!). "Thank you, Montessori." He chugged the cider, but did not burp because that's gross.

"It was nothing, you baka. It's not like I like you or anything!!!!" Montresor puffed up like a cat.

"What happened to us, Montresor? We used to..."

"You said that was just stuff friends did. Besides..."

"Besides?"

"What about your wife?"

"HA! She's a golddigging bitch. Eff her. "

Montresor blushed. "Anyway, don't you want the Amontillado?"

Fortunado stood up, the chains catching him. "FOR THE LOVE OF GOD MONTRESOR. FUCK ME."

Montresor didn't need to be told twice, and they did IT against the wall Montresor had built. "

The end.

Tip for the #AmWriting Crowd:

Make your villain hot.
Why?
Not just because associating evil with being physically ugly is a problem, but because people are more willing to listen to hot people, and argue their way is the right way. You want people to argue about your 3-dimensional Villain, right? And how they were justified, right?

MAKE 'EM HOT
