Did you know that the skaters on the cover of My True Love Gave to Me are our actual characters? So cute!
Every author had to turn in a description of their characters EARLY in the process—before we’d even written our stories! This explains why Laini’s rather complicated characters (if you’ve read her story, you know what I’m talking about) are the only ones that didn’t make it in time.

some kid in my class wrote an essay about how it never explicitly says Beowulf isn’t a robot

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Trailer – “The Mockingjay Lives”

delladilly:

here is some stuff i am tired of in my young adult lit:

  • our heroine tires of silly useless femme girls 
  • also those girls are probably bitches
  • thoughtful/taciturn fathers and emotional/babbling mother
  • everyone is an only child unless they have an annoying little brother
  • protagonists with no interests, passions, or strong opinions
  • (he was a demon/angel/vampire/werewolf/boggart/gremlin who cared about literally nothing until he met me and now we care about literally nothing but each other)
  • condescension is sexy
  • lol what are other women how do you friendship them
  • this love triangle: popular or dangerous guy + heroine + her male best friend
  • "well then maybe i don’t want to be a princess!!!" (feminine royalty as a gilded cage that you run away from in boots to join the joyously penniless)
  • first person snark
  • that was the summer my parents got divorced and my brother died and i moved across the country to live with my aunt who was friggin weird oh hey a cute boy
  • as a girl you’re not liberated or powerful until you have a sword
  • conversely as a girl don’t even worry your boyf has this under control
  • our heroine needs to learn to lighten up and go with the flow
  • why would he like me
  • greyscale covers of kids in flowing garments outside during a storm getting pneumonia

Just look at the effect Katniss had running around in that Mockingjay suit. Turned the whole rebellion around. Plutarch Heavesnbee, p. 257

thereforebucket asked:
