These books should not make me as happy as they do. Really, they shouldn't. I'm in my second year of university. My friend and I are renting our own apartment. I'm almost two decades old. And these books still have the power to send me flailing off down the hallway of my house, giggling to myself like a lunatic.

Spoilers for Halt's Peril, the ninth book in the Ranger's Apprentice series )
But aside from that, I am SO, SO EXCITE for the next book, which is scheduled for a North American release in Spring 2011. *commences frothing at the mouth*

*They're not jailbait anymore. SHIPSHIPSHIPSHIPSHIP
First order of business: It's been one month here, and I have so far refrained from killing anyone. Hooray.
THE HAPPY PART (+1 IMAGE) )

THE ANGSTY PART - feel free to tl;dr )

OMG, why do my posts involve so much emotional whiplash?

*The ...what, ninth? Ranger's Apprentice book by John Flanagan. SOMEDAY I WILL STOP OBSESSING OVER CHEESY 12-YEAR OLD BOOKS, I SWEAR.

DEAR FLIST:

ALL OF YOU ARE FUCKING AWESOME. 

THANK YOU FOR EXISTING. :D



YOU DICK ON THE SEX PISTOLS RULE.




~~~~~
back to your regularly scheduled memememememe... )
OH HOLY FUCKING SHITBALLS.

YOU. GUYS. JUST.

I.

Well, I finished Kings of Clonmel last night, and HOLY ;ALSKDJF;ALSDHK;ASKLT;ASDJ;ALTJ;ASLDINA; I DON'T EVEN!!!!!

BEWARE: THE IMAGES ARE FUCKING HUGE BECAUSE I AM A N0OB AND HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO MAKE THEM SMALLER. JSYK.

SPOILERS (WITH VISUALS) FOR KINGS OF CLONMEL (RA SERIES) )

completely unrelated: I want the "France" part of this as my ringtone. HOW AWESOME WOULD THAT BE? Every time a call would come in: "SIDNEY CROSBY!! YYYYYEAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LES CANADIENS!!!!!! QUEL FILS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" (LOL if it went off in the middle of lecture. Oh, man. ;p)

EDIT: OK, I am the luckiest idiot EVER. Wikipedia tells me there are TWO MORE BOOKS scheduled for Flanagan's RA series. TEARS OF HAPPINESS RN.


Err.... another voice post to plague you (because I am somehow infinitely amused by talking at my computer screen). THIS ONE IS ABOUT THE AWESOMENESS OF JOHN FLANAGAN'S SERIES Ranger's Apprentice AND HOW THE EIGHTH BOOK WAS OUT IN CANADA AND I HAD NO IDEA BUT OH MY GOD IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND, LIKE, I'M ONLY DONE THE FIRST CHAPTER BUT IT IS BLOWING MY MIND BECAUSE MY FAVOURITE CHARACTER HAS APPEARED, OH GILAN, AND I LOVE HIM TO BITS AND PIECES EVEN IF HE DOES GET SHAFTED ALL THE TIME. AND THERE IS GOING TO BE AWESOME BANTER AND EPIC BATTLES AND MAYBE EVEN A LOVE INTEREST, AND THESE BOOKS TOTALLY EMBODY EVERYTHING I LOVE ABOUT THE 9 - 12 SECTION OF BOOKSTORES AHHHH!!!!! ♥ ♥

I got cut off at the end, but it was only me signing off anyway, so. (It's mostly just me flailing and sounding hysterical, tbh.)
SONOFAFUCKINGBITCH MY ENTRY JUST DIED!

BUT OK, I JUST FINISHED THE 7TH BOOK OF JOHN FLANAGAN'S RANGER'S APPRENTICE SERIES: ERAK'S RANSOM AND AS;DLFJKAS;LDF YES YES YES! I AM JITTERY LIKE A JUNKIE ATM AND SINCE THERE IS NO ONE IN MY HOUSEHOLD I CAN SHOUT AT, I AM FORCED TO CHANNEL MY FANGIRLING INTO THIS POST AND HOPE THAT LJ DOESN'T EAT IT AGAIN YOU FUCKSHIT DICKWAD.
SPOILERS FOR ERAK'S RANSOM, WHICH IS BOSS. JUST SAYIN' )

AND FINALLY: BUT WHAT DO YOU MEEEEEEEEEEEEEAN I HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE EIGHTH BOOK? WHYYYYYYYYY, FLANAGAN, WHY?
 OKAY OMG I AM SO AWESOME! 
I HAVE THE FOURTH RANGER'S APPRENTICE BOOK! IN MY HANDS! (well, ok, i'm typing right now, but on the table beside me at any rate. Close enough.) I GOT IT TODAY AND I STARTED READING IT ON THE SUBWAY AND OMG IT IS FREAKING HILARIOUS!!!!  (I made myself wait until I got home to actually read it in depth, after I post this)

LIKE, YOU DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND HOW HAPPY I AM TO HAVE THIS BOOK. I WAS SKIPPING - SKIPPING! - ON THE WALK HOME FROM THE STATION. I AM ELATED. 

OTOH, Waaaaaaaayyy long ago (oh god it took my coherency too) after i read the third book, I wanted to write a fic about how Will and Evanlyn would escape their hideout by teh powers of Awesome and they'd meet Halt and Horace and MAJOR BRICK-SHITTING would take place, esp. in Halt's part. 

By the end of the first chapter? JOSSED. ALL JOSSED. I was crushed. Indeed, i think I spent several seconds staring into space on the train while I contemplated this fact, with an expression of the utmost agony and torment on my face. I think I quite unnerved a lady sitting across from me. But anyhow. 
SO GOOD. 

ETA: OMFG THAT WAS THE MOST AMAZING BOOK IN THE WORLD! OK, IT WAS FUCKING HILARIOUS AND ALSO, THERE WAS EMO!HALT AND SASSY!HALT AND I THINK HALT/JARL ERAK IS MY NEW OTP OF MANLOVE AND/OR SNARK BECAUSE HELL YESS! 

complete with cameos of intense!Horace, pissy!Will and manIfeellikeawoman!Evanlyn. Also, her Daddy, which was cute. but omg the Halt!snark was so good. SO GOOD. there was also some kick ass fighting and shit. so yeah. I definitely recommend this book to everyone. 

ooh, and there was foreshadowing and ANGST (well, not as much as book three) and SRS EMOTIONAL DRAMA between our triumvirate of teenaged heroes and I LOVED IT. 

(except, ok, where the fuck was Gilan in this? I mean, logically I know he's in Araluen, but FOR SERIOUS he's like my favourite character after Halt and OK GILAN YOU CAN MAKE AN APPEARANCE NOW!)

I are can has book five now?
