You know how you get those posts with Americans and Brits bickering over freedom and tea and scones and spelling. And the rest of us who aren’t from either country are just looking on like oh just kiss already
if i was famous i’d just tour around the country without telling anyone and go to random college campuses late at night, and i’d wait until i saw one person walking by themselves and i’d walk behind them and put my hands over their eyes and say guess who and when they turned around it’d be me and they’d be like o and then i’d say “no one will ever believe you” and i’d just sprint off into the moonlight
LAST GUARDIAN SPOILERS. BEST BITS I CAN REMEMBER LATE AT NIGHT.
-Mulch riding in on the troll. THE IMAGE WAS TOO. GOOD. I HAD TO STOP AND LAUGH AND GIVE COLFER A BIT OF MENTAL APPLAUSE.
-Artemis and Holly relationship growing/resolving/whatever. As I said before this bit he got spot on.
-Nopal. I just… liked her? Pitied her? She added a mature-ness to the series.
-One liners. Eoin Colfer’s trademark and they didn’t disappoint. They were a bit thinner on the ground but it was understandable and the punny names made up for it.
-His ‘death’. HE GOT ME. I THOUGHT HE MIGHT ACTUALLY GO THROUGH WITH IT SNEAKY IRISHMAN. I imagined him sitting writing on his computer thinking ‘THIS IS THE END. I’M GOING TO MAKE SURE HE NEVER COMES BACK.’ *cackle*
-The gnommish writing at the bottom. Thanks again to The Huntress for translating it but I think it’s my favourite one in a depressed kind of way.
-Foaly and Caballine. D’awww. Specifically their meeting (and Foaly being badass was pretty cool too)
-Character interactions. They made the book for me.
Artemis:[Earth's] gravity prevents us from flying off into space and freezing, before thawing out again and being crisped by the sun, none of which really matters, as we would have long since asphyxiated.
*pause for laughter; none arrives*
Artemis:That was a little joke. I read in a presentation manual that a joke often serves to break the ice. And I actually worked icebreaking into the joke, so there were layers to my humor.
