Day 15 - Your "comfort" book
Day 16 - Favorite poem or collection of poetry
Day 17 - Favorite story or collection of stories (short stories, novellas, novelettes, etc.)


Skipping these since I don't really do this. Yes I am a pleb. Don't care.

Days 15-17 - A book I should've mentioned because its awesome but I forgot because I am a dunce

Catheryne Valente's The Orphan's Tales series. Its a winding story filled with stories that all interconnect. Painted is a very complex, living world with a variety of characters that seem as if they belong from some fairytale. The writing is pretty too. What you get is a fantasy story that stretches across our world's myths/legends while adding a bit of its own to the mix. Highly recommended if you like retold fairytales, or modern stories (though not a modern setting) with a fairytale vibe.

Day 6 - Most annoying anime character

Soul Eater's BlackStar

I know he's supposed to be a parody. And I admit, he has his moments with Mifune or Tsubaki. However during the comedy bits I hate this guy. I even hate his voice.

Day 7 - Favorite anime couple

These two are in a complex relationship. While it seems perfect to outsiders, its plagued with problems. And the unhealthiness is shown to be bad. Yet at the same time both are sympathetic characters. Both must overcome their internal problems (Mytho is self-sacrificing to a ludicrous degree, while Rue's self esteem is in a blackhole of despair). In the end, they both triumph over themselves and can come together as better, more grown up people. But the changes weren't for each other, but for themselves. IDK, I just found it realistic, especially since they are a young couple.
