it’s summer and i am dangerously excited || wherein you encounter my plans of world domination

sometimes you spend all your days waiting for summer breaks and the rest of the year is basically just the time when you plan out aforementioned summer and create tbrs and other plans and GET EXCITED OVER STUFF.

this is also what i usually do (i’m unoriginal like that) BECAUSE SUMMER IS THE ACTUAL PART OF LIFE, OKAY?!! the rest of the time is just, like, a break from summer BECAUSE THE EXCITEMENT WOULD VANISH IF WE HAD THE GOOD STUFF ALL THE TIME. rules of the universe, I DISAGREE OF COURSE. summer is amazing and we MUST have it all the time WHO EVEN MAKES THESE RULES DARNIT!

but anyway. thing is. IT’S SUMMER!!!!! aka the most awaited time of year, WHEN WE DEVOUR ALL THE BOOKS AND SWIM IN THE WATER (this is more like ‘common misconception’ actually. I CAN’T SWIM) and EAT ALL THE ICE CREAM OF EVER and take over the world. THE GOOD STUFF.

why you need to read ‘i kissed shara wheeler’ RIGHT NOW (i’m bribing you with chocolate so it’s not really much of a choice, OKAY??) + how it stole my life and also my entire existence (it’s because i’m kind) || featuring screams and certain book recs for the desperate souls

sometimes you read a book and you wish you could frame all of these sentences and words and jumbles of letters so you could stare at them all day and not feel like they deserve a life of their own and you’re the VILLAIN-FULL-OF-EVILNESS for not being able to give it to them.

sometimes you also wish thoughts could be more coherent things instead of jumbled messes of screeching obsessions that are famous for not making any sense.

but life is disappointing in some ways.

those aforementioned two come under the unfortunate category.

it’s a well-known fact that books rule the word and take over lives when they feel like it. it’s also a well-known fact that such books are my one and only weakness.

secret revelations of the olivish being (which is ME)|| remember that one time 8737636 years back when i asked you for questions?? well, i return to provide answers AND ALSO MORE CHOCOLATES (plus some secrets) || part 1

remember that one time we talked about living in fantasy worlds and chasing dragons and finally accomplishing our life-long dreams of world domination?

and then we celebrated the 100 fantasy-like followers with chocolates and promises of secrets. wherein i demanded questions and you all provided, like the good little olives that you are.

after that i proved my loyalty to the olive race by never providing those aforementioned secrets (it was the exams, people, BLAME THE EXAMS) and silently disappearing for a bit (i was drowning under books okay??). however, i have returned with all the secrets in tow (AREN’T YOU PROUD), so everybody SCREAM!!

also apparently you guys are nosy little beans (DON’T WORRY, I STILL LOVE YOU) and thus dumped me with a ton of question (BUT ALSO, i really appreciate it!! because i need all the loyalty from you, the olives, obviously) so its not exactly my fault if this post is L O N G, okay?? no, i don’t mean the usual oops-i-am-obsessed-with-words-and-wrote-2000-words-of-nonsense. It’s more like oh-my-gosh-i-am-in-love-with-words-and-wish-to-drown-under-them-for-the-rest-of-ever kind.

Pretty Deadly Words #2 || I scream about waffles and darkness and words AND MY NEW WIP

Words are fun sometimes.

Mostly because they have letters and you can spell ‘d r a g o n’ with them.

So I write words sometimes. Which you’d probably know because that’s kind of what’s going on now? Not to mention I LOVE DRAGONS. So I need words obviously. THEY’RE CRUCIAL. Or my dragons would die.

Except I have been too busy lately, narrating the many ways shakespeare is overhyped to my aforementioned precious dragons and eating all the olives and waffles and chocolates and also devouring all the words. I’VE BEEN BUSY, ALRIGHT? WORLD DOMINATION TAKES TIME AND INSANELY HUGE AMOUNTS OF PLANNING, HUMANS! The words got a little abandoned. Which was sad, but I’M WORKING ON IT, OKAY?

How Miss Peregrine’s home for peculiar children became the first-ever fantasy I hated enough to throw out the window and cackle evilly while it bled into non-existence

One of the worst things that can ever happen to a smol and dedicated bookworm is when a book off their ‘most-excited-to-read-because-its-assumed-perfection-might-lead-to-brain-combustion-abd-maybe-I-love-that’ shelf ends up being A. MAJOR. DISAPPOINTENT.

And then the bookworm in question softly sobs into their pillow instead of all the gushing and talking-people’s-ears-off-so-as-to-torture-them-into-reading-said-book they’d assumed they would be doing. IT’S SAD, honestly. Because the world has ended like that. In a way. ITS SAD OK?? It can also be the #1 reason why aforementioned bookworm might choose the evil path and become the villain of their story. (10000/10 recommend this existential crisis if you’re trying to become a villain, by the way)

Pretty Deadly Words #1 || Look!! I write words sometimes!!

Writers are weird creatures.

Commonly known for their coffee-and-word addiction, they have been rumoured to spend their days in dark caves, coming out only on the night of the full moon, to drink the blood of their enemies and battle amongst themselves over the possession of the world.

That image, incidentally, is also delusional.
Because I don’t live in a cave (although I imagine it would provide much bookshelf-space) and maybe there’s a few people I could name with a passion for world-theft, but also, NO. AND WHY DO WRITERS NEED TO BE COFFEE-OBSESSED???

April Inked on Paper || Wherein dragons scream, I devour words and slowly reclaim my title as bookworm extraordinaire (i’ve been living in heaven basically. DON’T SCREAM)

“Sometimes if you tell yourself enough times that something the world believes to be a lie, IS ACTUALLY THE TRUTH, then perhaps you shall end up believing it. But you must remind yourself enough times obviously. THAT IS KEY.”

At least, that’s what they say. And I kind of hate them (better known as ‘people with weird sayings that are obviously lies because they also contradict other people with weird sayings, which is MAYBE the way this world works? BUT YOU CANNOT FOOL ME OKAY #genius) so today we shall try out aforementioned saying that is staring you down at this very second in HUGE BLACK LETTERS DEMANING ATTENTION (look above, folks)

Pretty Deadly Words: A Deadly Introduction || Where you shall encounter daggers, stories and the like || ALSO HI I’M BACK

One of the worst moments in a supossedly mortal* human’s life is when said human has to answer to why they’ve been ignoring everything and they find out that they haven’t yet been kidnapped by a volcra SO THEY MUST ACTUALLY THINK UP EXCUSES FOR SAID DISAPPEARANCE. (#1 way to lose your faith in the volcra race by the way)

So in a painful turn of events, I currently happen to be that fortunate human who just lost faith in the volcra and thefore have to think up excuses that do not involve me being busy, because honestly speaking, i wasn’t. At least not in the normal, buried-under-my-science-assignments kind of way. More like the I-was-busy-being-queen-and-therefore-magnificent kind of way. Which is perhaps the best excuse I can give at the moment. Apart from me drowning under words and taking over the world and silently convincing ash to read the raven boys. The normal stuff.

Hiii the olive queen’s still alive and hasn’t been kidnapped by a volcra, contrary to popular belief || Why you thought the volcra kidnapped me + Life Updates + I’M GOING TO INDIA WHICH IS HIGHLY EXCITING

One of the most amazing creatures in all the world, apart from dragons obviously (WHICH ARE THE SUPERIOR-EST because umm, FLYING??? FIRE-BREATHING??? KILLING PEOPLE??? CONQUERING THE WORLD??? BEING AMAZING ALL THE TIME??? DID I MENTION FLYING??? SEE? Superior!) are VOLCRA.

I have reasons prepared. Because we’re high on tyranny here and therefore convincing people to accept the queen’s opinions is NECESSARY. The reasons go along the lines of such:
