Cw: chilling adventures of Sabrina comic #9, rape 

Short version: my recommendation is to skip this one, and *maybe* also just drop this series entirely.

Longer version: nothing really happens in it anyway, there's a lot of reminding you what just happened in their universe and then for no reason we're told Edward rapes a demon between panels. If she wasn't in the story literally nothing would change. TBH this kind of bullshit is why I often wonder if we should stop letting men write things.

If anyone wants a handy reminder (though I will probably boost this later lol)

🚨 Print Book Readers: 🚨

You may not know this, but there is a shortage of print books right now due to a variety of factors.

If you want to guarantee you get a print book this fall or winter, for whatever reason, please Pre-Order it, as early as you can.

My (Aura H20) Sleep cover is sort of wearing thing. It still works, but parts of it are falling off. Does anyone have any recommendations for a way to repair it? Or a way to get a cheaper replacement?

I'm not even sure kobo still sells sleep covers for this edition of kobo, but when they did it was forty fucking dollars.

Obviously the magic "go to sleep part" is ideal, but I'm sure I can learn to put the kobo to sleep without closing it if that won't work.

as a reminder, @zephasaurus_hex and I are doing in which we read a metric shit ton of Grishaverse books (starting with Six of Crows). I assume it will take longer than September, despite the ill-thought-out hashtag.

If anyone wants to join us on this joyride, you know what to read (and possibly watch. I can confirm Ben Barnes is dreamy if you didn't already know this)

@lapis lol I'm glad you clarified it "might" take longer than September because I'm pretty sure I can do like 2, *maybe* 3 books max before October but we'll see!

Hm. Or I guess I could just stop limiting myself to only listening every few chapters at a time and just comment about whatever I got through at the end of the day. I just didn't quite realize I was supposed to be going fast.

Six of Crows ch 4-6 

More characters!

I'll withhold judgement on Matthias till at least the next section.

Nina I can't decide if I like or not. She was slightly mean to Inej so I'm mad at her but she seems kind of funny when not distressed so I'll give her time.

Also it seems silly that she wouldn't guess about the fighting arena but then I remember she doesn't have TV and it isn't fair to expect her to know tropes, so that's fine.

Six of Crows ch 1-3, audiobook specifically 

@lapis I looked up pictures and yeah, he definitely looks like Spot.

I was also picturing younger until the guy who kidnapped him reads off his arrest record and makes it sound like the last one at 15 was quite awhile ago. Which makes more sense, when I think about it. I was just picturing Newsies. 😁

Six of Crows ch 1-3, audiobook specifically 

@lapis it is! Unfortunately it's also audible-only. 😦

I try to get most of my books from Kobo and get out of the Amazon habit but they draw me in sometimes.

Six of Crows ch 1-3, audiobook specifically 

One of the readers (Kaz's stuff I think) sounds just like Jason Marsden. It makes me feel like I'm watching one of my comfort shows from the 90s and makes me happy.

Six of Crows ch 1-3 

Apparently I hadn't actually finished chapter 3 yesterday and we *do* hear about the healer again.

Oh no.

Show thread

Six of Crows ch 1-3 

I don't have a lot to say since at this point it's mostly character intros, but here's my impressions of all the characters I remember meeting so far.

Inej - badass knife-lady, 10/10 would read all about her

Kaz - this is basically if Spot from Newsies grew up a lil then went through the plot of The Thief, so I love him

Joost - seems useless and I think he just exists to showcase the healer, who I hope comes back but I forget her name

@lapis I'll try to push myself to comment something like every 2-3 chapters? I'm bad at it, I usually think "oh I should talk about that" when I read but forget to come back and do it, but I'll set myself some calendar reminders and make time to post.

I'm pretty sure at least 30% of my sense of humor, aesthetic, and just general personality is rooted in this film and watching it is such a delight *every. single. time.*

First "Hocus Pocus" watch of the year, woooooooooo.

Which means I'm gonna be chanting a bunch of Sarah's lines a lot for awhile.

calling everyone libs is almost as annoying as having 984953859 qualifiers for what counts as a real leftist instead of just admitting that a lot of leftists suck

Okay As you probably already know: Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron won, though it was VERY close.

So let's all enjoy a sapphic dystopia

american horror stories, not really plot-related thoughts on last ep 

I really like how there's this mom who wants to connect with her kid, whose only personality trait is liking American Horror Story. She spends literally all her money hiring a game designer to make an AHS game rather than just watch it with him. She's not a game designer. We have no clues as to what she does when she's not going in debt making a game no one wanted for a property she doesn't own.

I found my favorite place in FFXIV so far, this magical fairy mushroom cave with adorable animal-like creatures.

So I sat down and ate some food hoping I'll have to stay there forever now. :blobheartcat:
