Valkyrie, please.

So I saw The Fault in Our Stars today. Not a perfect movie, or book, or author (which is an entirely different can of worms than what we’re discussing today.) But i was surprised by how much it hit home. I had read the book back in February 2012, and at the time, i didn’t relate to anything in it, really.

But today, seeing someone disappointed in the actions of their favorite author and dealing with that felt close to home. Especially the scene where she (spoilers!) takes the book off her shelf, removes a bookmark, and throws the novel onto her bed. The camera lingers on the book for a moment, and she moves on.

An author can ruin a book. Even though there are people who could have walked away from that experience and cheerfully kept on reading, Hazel didn’t. Because she is someone with her own feelings and experiences.

Okay, with that preface out of the way: obviously Derek Landy did not mock the cancer I don’t have. I am not saying in any way his actions were anywhere near as bad as Van Houten’s. But he is not who i thought he was. Should I care? Maybe not. But his actions are not things I condone with anyone. They are not things I personally am comfortable with. In a lot of cases, this doesn’t actually matter much, seeing as i don’t know the creator in question. 

But I did know Derek.

roarhaven:

Consider this my official withdrawal from the Skulduggery Pleasant fandom.

The past three years have been wonderful, with great experiences and some of the best friends I’ve ever met, but due to recent discoveries I don’t believe I can support and enjoy the books anymore. I can not provide any more details than that, as it’s not my place to tell.

My personal blog is here.

My fanfiction, posts, and art will remain untouched.

Thank you,

Moonie

"Well now," said a voice in the steam, "don’t I feel stupid?"
Steam billowed and Valkyrie could see Tanith Low leaning against a streetlight, both hands pressing into the lower half of her torso, which was a mess of blood and ruined flesh. Ghastly rushed over to her, eyes wide. 
Steam hissed as Ghastly and Tanith talked, but their words were snatched away until Ghastly grabbed her and Tanith cried out.
"Bloody hell, that hurts!"
"I don’t care," said Ghastly, and he pulled her into him and they kissed, long and hard…

Can we just stop for a moment and talk about the book dedications in skulduggery pleasant? Derek Landy is just awesome okay
I’m looking through my series (that I had to dig out from themselves—funny how that works) because I’m lending the books to a friend and YOU ALL NEED TO READ SP RIGHT NOW
That’s it. My role on earth is accomplished.

sometimes i just remember

"Do you have anyone who’d be willing to give up the rest of their life to spend with her?”

“I would,” Skulduggery said.

Valkyrie looked away.
