{boggles} - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
...Oh, my word, and then book 4 does a few more laps around the Uncanny Valley of Skeeve before it takes a running leap straight for the Campy Soap-Opera Crack. (I'm past "demonbabby" and "imprinting" and heading into "making her tell her Dad"...) I mean, even forewarned this is... a... IDEK, man, IJDEK, I'm so confused at this point Idunno what a summation of this Reading Experience is even going to look like or if my brain is going to leak out of my ears if I try to type it up coherently.

And mostly I'm reeeeally wondering right about now what could have happened to the writer that this is how she's processing the experience, because I think it would be harder to write something that screamed somebody has Issues more loudly if you tried...

feeling: horrified fascination

I love the birth scene, myself. To have been a fly on SMeyers' wall when her babies were born! SOMEONE had birth trauma! That was some crazy shit. She won't show us anything remotely resembling sex, no satisfying resolution there, just giant cockblocks... but suddenly there's BLOODY TRAUMATIC CHEW-OUT-THE-BABY SPINE-SNAPPING BIRTH. ohhh my goddddd.

I am so anxious to see that particular book put to film because I just want to see how they handle it. Although I hear they aren't going to make it as graphic. This saddens me greatly.

...It shames me that I did not think of this comparison. :) Although now you mention it, the spine-snapping is kind of a metaphor for an epidural, innit...

Those two GIFs pretty much sum up my feelings on Twilight, heh.

I have not read any of these books myself, and do not intend to. But from hearing ashnistrike about them, the author apparently has a Squid so large it's not in her mouth, she's wearing it as a hat. (My metaphor, not hers.)

I believe that she is in the squid's mouth, yes...

That last book was something special, I tell you.

I've really never seen anything like it, in print or on the internet. And that is Saying Something...
