Eyes of Statues
While searching for a friend, I stumbled upon a shadowy edifice that seemed immeasurably ancient. Surrounding it was endless forest in possibly the most…[Read more]
So for anyone who’s watched Ouran High School Host Club or just knows what a host club is imagine Aric and Japeth walking in on one that would be insane and if it was Ouran’s host club that would be even funnier it would be complete nonsense most of y’all probably don’t know what a host club is but I mean if you do think about this it’s a…[Read more]
Shannon Messenger: one LGBTQ+ reference, once. (in Neverseen when dex and Keefe had to share a lufterater)
Rick Riordan: token gay couple. (Solangeloooooo)
Soman Chainani: eVeRy OtHeR cHaRaCtEr Is LgBtQ+
Lol I haven’t read all of Riordan’s books but as far as I know this is accurate. Do there wind up being more LGBTQ+ in the Riordanverse???
Yes, but they’re done in an awful way.
I don’t think he really understands the point of representation. Minorities, whether gender or ethnic (saying this from a racial minority standpoint), don’t need proof we exist. We know we exist. All we want are characters that show us in a positive light and share the beauty of our cultures/gender…[Read more]
Everyone’s entitled to their own thoughts. I liked Hestadil bc it showed that even bad a** witches want companionship and someone to really lean on with anything. A reason I like Jaric a lot is that they prove that even psychotic murderers need love and feel lonely. It proves that they really are human, not just stereotypical villains. Wogden…[Read more]
Idk. But there’s already so much romance in the books between villains and no aro characters. I thought both of them were clearly written to be alone and since Hestadil was just half-confirmed I don’t think Soman really wanted to do it.
Yes in his later books like Magnus Chase and Trials of Apollo, there are more LGBTQ+ characters. I think Piper ends up being LGBTQ+ as well.
Huh. I’m only reading Blood of Olympus lol and Ive only heard of Solangelo even though I’m not quite far enough for Solangelo.
Wait what? Did she seriously get into another relationship RIGHT AFTER JASON DIED??? WHO DOES THAT???
I love SGE but the rep isn’t that stellar. Hestadil was barely canon and didn’t even kiss, plus Willam x Bogden was queerbaity, and the whole sisters twist w/ Aggie and Sophie (a lot of people shipped them before TLEA). Plus Jaric is super problematic rep because they’re both villains that everyone hates.
All of Rick’s representation is god awful I can post a link of every mistake he’s ever made if you want, Shannon has absolutely no LGBTQ+ rep and is racist and Soman’s “rep” felt like he kinda realized he needed rep and just shoved them in last minute and I am not a fan of any of it. I still like the series but let’s not pretend like any of them…[Read more]
@Hort , hi! Your one post from five years ago BLEW UP and people are STILL commenting! check it out in his activity if anyone needs it
(I have a tip for you – never say you’re going to do a life story and then tag people asking for bios…………. you will end up with 405 comments 😭)
but wow that post………..

@Thecoven4ever, hi! I realise I haven’t shown you extracts from my book in a while. I would also like to share some fascinating information! Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella musical shares a lot of similarities with my book. I have added so many of the songs to my various book playlists. 😂 Anyway, back to the extract. For some context, in this new…[Read more]
OH MY GOSH LILITH THIS IS SO GOOD I ABSOLUTELY LOVEEEE THE FALLINF ON EACH OTHER TENSION BIT!! Iohann and Lilith are so cute with each other and you write them being playful and flirty sooo well!
Thank you so much! I thought you would. I love writing their friendship. I can’t wait to delve deeper into it. I wanted to leave room for Aspen and Iohann’s narrative, and I didn’t want Lilith to get in the way of that, so I changed how her heart gets broken. It’s so much worse than before. And Aspen has a much bigger role to play than before. 😈
Darkness cloaks the room, window blinds
Filter lemon yellow lantern light into narrow
Slits on the wall and shallow streams
On the blanket between…[Read more]
That’s incredible! You referred to ‘television static’ and I am so very intrigued to see visual snow to be depicted so accurately in a poem. It’s a real struggle for me, so thank you for including that line, even if that wasn’t your intention. ❤️
I dreamed that I was walking down a dim hallway. The visuals were very grainy like old camera footage. I opened a wooden door into a room made of television static that flickered so much it hurt my eyes. I immediately woke up and recorded everything in this poem at 2:13 AM
this has such a feeling of serenity with a threatening undertone… it’s so vivid, you’re really skilled.
Here’s a poem:
Two princes fight for the crown,
One is worthy,
The other is lying,
They both will work hard trying.
The Lion and the Snake fight for Camelot,
A test they will go through,
To raise or rot.
The One True King will be found in the end,
It’s coming near,
They both must fend,
Lion and the Snake,
Camelot to loose or take.
SGE thought so I don’t get reported for being off-topic: I don’t think Hophie is a healthy pairing and Nicola shouldn’t have been “intentionally written to be annoying.”
Since personal activities and Open
Chat are down, here is poem #24 that was written a few hours ago. It reimagines an entry from October 2017 when I pretended to leave the site…[Read more]
Wow. I love this poem it really shows that there is still hope, and there is always hope 💛💛
oooo this is gorgeous
i used to be the biggest hophie stan but now i feel like nicola never really had a chance to grow on us because she was always an obstacle to hophie
I think it’s less of the content and more of the style but this poem reminds me of the last line of the Great Gatsby:
“ Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. . . . And one fine morning…[Read more]
This was the October 2017 “goodbye” poem. Upon rereading it post-2020, I felt that the tone was too commanding and needed a gentler touch.
No matter how gloomy it seems
Don’t give up on your hopes and dreams
The past leaves its shadows and scars
Don’t let that stop you from being who you are
Goodbye may seem like forever,
And farewell…[Read more]
Here’s a poll for yall 🙂
Tagatha or Hophie
Satisfied with ending or Not
Japeth or Rhian
Merlin or Reaper
School Age or Camelot Age
PS: (I wish i could’ve gotten a wedding scene or a epilogue from the book :C )
Hi! I noticed you’re new. Welcome to the site! I’m Lori and if you have any questions feel free to ask 🙂 🙂 🙂
Rhian…how can anyone pick Japeth…
…idk, probably the School Years
Not really, it was nice but it felt fan servicey and there were a lot of loose ends and unresolved plot points
School years, the series should have ended with the handbook
Kind of. Really wanted to see a wedding but I guess not-
Rhian. At least he didn’t kill his brother.
AHHH I love both. Camelot and the sfge is just so fascinating
Ayo guys who were the Ever/Never new-gen couple again? I wanna add them into a fic but I forgot their names 🤣
