top five tropes you'd like to use in a story?

ASKED BY afterlithe

1. outsiders!! i love lonely tortured characters so much
2. homes/backstories - i’m obsessed at looking at where people come from and how they’re raised and that affects them completely once they’ve grown up
3. mothers !!!!!!!!!!!! i love looking at relationships around mothers and children so so much
4. settings? is that a trope? but again i love connecting settings to characters as a really interesting way of defining or contrasting them and using really obscure settings and making it /vital/ if you get me
5. women ruining men!! women who take full control of their sexuality, or lack thereof and own it!!! women!!!!!!

what did you think of the goldfinch?

ASKED BY johnnkeats

i loved loved loved it!!!! it was slow but steady and so heavy with grief but in a beautiful, meaningful way and i thought characters like boris were like a match struck in the darkness. i thought the writing was gorgeous and even though sometimes the plot was sometimes a bit slower, it was so worth the read because it was such a beautiful story about grief and growth and the mourning in the boys lives. so worth the read! i thought it was delicate and clever and emotional which are all my favourite things and it really resonated after.

you know there’s something wrong
with this picture, like the dream we shared
with the eyes blacked out and our song calling
like sunset in the distance, almost
as though it were sorry, almost as though
it were breaking too. there’s nothing
tender here, only your hands
spread in surrender. you say you’re
tired of all of this, say it’s not
our fault, say this could be a
dream, if we wanted it to be.
you’re searching for words like a
wild horse running blind, trying
to find a way back to that desperate
body we called home, trying
to remember if it was breathing
to begin with, or whether we wished
that, and so much else, too.
