I am the Duke of Bookingham.
I am a writer, reader and self-confessed book snob.
Here is where I discuss my fiction addiction.
Welcome, peasants.

Ginny Weasley & Tom Riddle

I thought it was really cool and kinda cute until I realized it was Ginny and Tom, then it became horrific. I love it.

This is BY FAR the best fan art I have ever seen. You don’t realise what it is until you properly look at it.

Dear Tom by chicxulub

This is so fucked up and so amazing. People forget too easily that an 11-year-old girl spent the better part of a year with basically Satan living in her brain.

WHEN CUSTOMERS TRY TO TALK TO ME ON MY LUNCH BREAK

I’m like:

WEIRD CONVERSATIONS WITH CUSTOMERS
Customer: Do you have the first Harry Potter in hardback?
Me: Actually, no, someone just bought the last one. I can check another store.
Customer: That'd be great. My daughter's eight and she's read her copy so many times it's literally disintegrated.
Me: You have officially won fatherhood.
I can’t believe this happened, my mom use to let me read anything I wanted because she trusted me and I think that’s how u should raise your children, put your trust in them.
I KNOW! I mean, I understand not letting your twelve-year-old read American Psycho (like yes, have sense) but this is just ass-backwards and messed up. You should not be less bothered by the idea of rape than by the idea of your daughter learning about normal, healthy sex.

ARIEL: Who does a lot of crud for Prospero. What is the most important thing you’ve ever done for a friend? What is the most important thing a friend did for you? | I wouldn’t have thought of this as super important until the person I did it for told me how important it was. I had a really close friend who was a one-year exchange student at my university and when he was ready to head back to the UK we threw him a little going away party. In the few days beforehand I spent like six hours sorting through every photo of him on Facebook to find the really good ones from his year hear and then got them all professionally printed and put in a photo album (which apparently nobody does anymore). He was so pleased with it he actually teared up and told me it was the nicest thing anyone had ever done for him. It’s amazing what little things make a huge difference. And now going really dark, I had an incident in a show I was in where one of the actors was harassing me on a pretty regular basis and that harassment eventually escalated to assault. I’m a scrapper and I got away before anything really bad could happen, but I was still a little shaken. Two of the other guys in the cast came and found me and told me that if he laid another finger on me they’d break every bone in his body. It made me feel a hell of a lot safer and I will be forever grateful to them for having my back. 

ZEBASTIAN (Yes I know it’s spelled with an S be quiet I tried ok): What is the craziest thing you and your sibling ever did? | My dad has a really bad back and for his 50th birthday our whole extended family teamed up to buy him a massage chair. During the party, my brother and I snuck back home and went to get the chair out of a neighbor’s garage, but the box weighed (literally) 300 pounds. So we manhandled onto a wagon, heaved all the way around the house in the dark and then my brother almost crushed me shoving it off the wagon and through the back door. We’d just gotten the damn thing inside when my mom called and said, “We’re going to be home in five minutes!” So my brother and I hauled ass to get the whole thing assembled by the time they walked in the door, without reading any of the instructions, and flung all the trash out of sight in a closet. When my parents came in we were sweaty and bruised and angry and my dad was so drunk he could barely figure out it was a chair. 

PUCK: Best prank you ever played on someone? | I’ve actually already done this one! Find that here.

SHYLOCK: Do you tend to hold grudges? | And I’ve done this as well! Find it here.

Thanks for the ask!
