Day 70 of #The100DayProject (and if you thought *I* was going to consistently post every day of this, that’s a *you* problem) • #Stardust and #Neverwhere and #AmericanGods by #NeilGaiman • It’s been quite a few years since I’ve read these books, but I had to get my hands on the lovely new covers that have been released this year. And since I still have a few of his books to get to, I’m hoping my desire to have a matching set will facilitate that this year. But Stardust was my intro to Gaiman, Neverwhere was my favorite, and I just felt very accomplished for finishing American Gods. • #bookstagram #fantasy @neilhimself (at Somerville, Massachusetts) https://www.instagram.com/p/CNglLBQn4Gf/?igshid=1m6u65ipmyx5o

Neverwhere - Neil Gaiman
Synopsis:
Under the streets of London there's a place most people could never even dream of. A city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, knights in armour and pale girls in black velvet. This is the city of the people who have fallen between the cracks. Richard Mayhew, a young businessman, is going to find out more than enough about this other London. A single act of kindness catapults him out of his workday existence and into a world that is at once eerily familiar and utterly bizarre. And a strange destiny awaits him down here, beneath his native city: Neverwhere.

I decided I wanted to try a book photo challenge this month since I've been in a bit of a book slump and I really enjoyed doing a studyblr challenge on my other blog in March, but of course I'm already five days late for April. Here are the first five days in one photo :)
1. April Goals: I want to get further in A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness 2. Currently Reading: The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers and A Discovery of Witches (I almost always read multiple books at once) 3. Up in the Clouds: Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld was one of my early teen favorites and the clouds made me think of their airship. 4. Books and Chocolate: Sorcery and Cecelia or the Enchanted Chocolate Pot by Wrede and Stevermer 5. Cured a Book Hangover: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman I read after finishing A Wise Man's Fears (and began the long wait for more).
Drink of the day: vanilla chai

hualian service (yes please) and/or wrightworth (love them) snippets for the fic meme :)
Ok, so the wrightworth fic is legit the oldest thing on this list.  I wrote it back in like 2015 before I ever returned to writing fanfic for real.  It’s honestly a fucking MESS and there’s not that much of it.  But I will tell you about it because it’s you and you would appreciate it. 
I wanted to write it because all the fic I found that had any d/s elements had Edgeworth as the dom and that just did not feel right to me (nearly wrote wright there lol).  So this is Edgeworth who can only let go in a sub context.  That’s the idea, basically. 
Went looking for a snippet for you and something disasterous happened.  I discovered it’s...not...bad...
When they had both relaxed back into their chairs Miles continued, “It's just slightly. . . unusual for a man your age to remain unattached.”
Wright shot him another annoyed look.  “YOU'RE a man my age, too, you know,” he challenged, the courtroom tone slipping into his voice.  
Miles huffed a surprised laugh.  “I'm different, Wright.”  He shook his head in dismissal.
“Well maybe I'm different too,” Wright threw back, stubbornly.  Miles' breath caught for a moment.  He doesn't mean what you THINK he means, idiot, he chastised himself.  Miles took a hasty gulp of his wine to cover his sudden silence.   He struggled furiously to get his thoughts back on track, to stop wondering what he might potentially have in common with Wright romantically, to stop imagining implications in Wright's words that were hardly there.  He was immensely grateful when Wright spoke up again, saving him from formulating a response.
“Seriously, I never expected to get a lecture on this from YOU of all people.”
“I'm not lecturing,” Miles said.  “I was just sharing what Miss Fey said for your amusement.”
“Objection!” Wright burst out, even pointing his finger at Miles half-heartedly. Miles snickered and Wright blushed slightly, his expression admitting the absurdity of his gesture.  “You WEREN'T just repeating Maya's words, YOU said I was abnormal!”
“No, Wright!  I said it was UNUSUAL for you to be unattached, not abnormal.”
“AHA! So you admit it!” Their was humor in his face, but Wright's face showed triumph all the same.  “And I submit that if it is unusual for me not to have a sex life then it is also unusual for YOU, seeing as we're both single men of the same age.  So, basically, you have no leg to stand on.  Admit it, Edgeworth!”
Edgeworth smiled at Wright's display, but quickly smoothed his face into a professional courtroom mask.  “But Mr. Wright,” he began, “you seem not to possess all the facts. You're making assumptions without evidence.  And in this case, your assumptions are false.”  Wright straightened his posture and raised his brows, ready to meet the challenge.  “The truth is,” and here Miles paused, before throwing his better judgment to the wind, “I DO in fact have a sex life.”  He maintained the pretense of his courtroom persona, raising one eyebrow at his opponent.
Wright on the other hand, had dropped his professional demeanor, and his mouth had dropped open.  After a moment he snapped it shut and flushed red, “Oh! I'm...of course, I didn't mean...err, umm, well, sure you do....right.”  By this time Wright was looking into the distance again and rubbing the back of his neck awkwardly.  Miles was already regretting his words and felt his own face heating.  But Wright wouldn't just shut up, “You have every right to...no reason not to...you're over here and I haven't seen you...” He seemed to realize he was babbling and trailed off.
Miles heaved a sigh and let his head fall to his palm.  
The knowledge that 6000 words of this is just sitting here is now haunting me.  I always meant to go back to it, but it’s been so very long.

For my first book review, I wanted to do Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman! I read this book recently and truly was not expecting as great of a story as I got.
(There will be spoilers!)
The story reminded me of this dark and twisted version of Neil Gaiman’s other story Coraline along with a sense of Alice In Wonderland as well. The book started off with a character who I admittedly didn’t like at first, Richard Mayhew. Richard finds a woman on the streets of London while with his (horrendous) fiancé to meet her boss. He leaves his fiancé to help this young women and takes her back to his apartment. From this point on, Richard has no idea how drastic things where about to change for him. Two men come to his apartment later to try to take back the young women he found. After they leave and the young women named Door leaves, Richard finds his life completely turned upside down. No one remembers who he is, he no longer exist in the above ground London world. As the story progresses he goes to find Lady Door back in the underground London world to try to get his life back. From that point on, he embarks on a wild and hectic journey of trying to get his life back, trying to avenge Lady Door’s parents’ murder, while also running from Mr. Croup and Mr Vandemar (the two men who came to Richard’s apartment looking for Lady Door). Along the way, they meet multiple friends, foes, and alies (the hilarious Marquis de Carabas). Lady Door and her family have special powers that allow them to open up any doors. (Thought this was very ironic as he eventually went on to write the infamous Coraline which starts with the little door). As the story progresses, they have to find a key for the Lord Islington, the highest of angels. Now the plot twist is it turns out Lord Islington is evil! Mr. Croup and Mr. Vandamar are working for him! Eventually, the good guys win in the end and Richard gets his life back and Lady Door avenges her parents death. At this point in the story, it seems as if Richard is going to leave Lady Door, Marquis, and the whole underworld of London to go back to a very basic life of an office job and a broken relationship with a women who was once his fiancé. ( I was devastated at this point because I really wanted Richard to stay with his newfound friends). As his life goes back to normal, he realizes that he is truly not meant for above ground London and desperately pleads to go back to his friends underground. (The last scene of the book is both hilarious and quite special). He is saying his whole story of traveling in the underground to a homeless women (who definitely thinks Richard is wacky) and he goes and draws a Door on the side of a building and bangs on it. As he does, a tired Marquis comes out and takes him back to the underground.
Overall, I really was pleasantly surprised and really adored this story. It was quite a quick read and once it got started, it was hard to put down! For my rating, I want to rate it a 8/10 due to the awesome environment, characters, and plot twist!
(PS: The summary provided is a very rough summary and leaves out a large chunk of the story!)
(There is also a show of this I found out that I am planning to watch eventually!)

Y'ALL.
I just binge-watched Neverwhere, a 6-episode miniseries that aired in the UK during the mid-90s. Written by Neil Gaiman, which he later turned into a novel.
It is, without any doubt, the weirdest, creepiest, most ridiculous show I have ever seen.
...
I LOVED IT!!!

Trevor Peacock passes away aged 89 years old
Trevor Peacock passes away aged 89 years old
It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to announce that Trevor Peacock has passed away at the age of 89 years old. Sadly he was diagnosed with vascular dementia in 2009 and in 2013 was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. His family announced the sad news in a statement: “Trevor Peacock, actor, writer and song-writer, died aged 89 on the morning of March 8th from a dementia-related illness.” Peacock was…

I have been soaking in the world of Dellecher, Shakespeare and Oliver Marks. @m-l-rio has given me and the world a beautiful, painful, compelling story. I read it then started it again a couple days later. Thrillers rarely capture my interest. The back of If We Were Villains calls it a literary thriller. It's a fucking brilliant story. Written so well I wish it had been mine. As a writer I am still in primary school in comparison. This doesn't bother me. I love her. I love her book.
The last time this happened was 15 years ago. My now husband and I were heading to California to visit my family for Christmas. We headed to a bookstore to prepare for the flight. A few weeks prior my coworker was astounded I had never read The Sandman. I mentioned this to one of my best friends and he had the same reaction.
You've never read the Sandman?! He then insisted that I read it but first I had to read Neverwhere so we could watch the show later. I was assured I would like it. So, curious I dutifully bought the book.
I started reading Neverwhere in the airport. By the time the plane was taking off I wasn't sure I was going to like the it. By the time I got off the plane Neverwhere was my favourite book and @neil-gaiman had become my favourite author.
For me, every word in that book was perfectly placed. His word choice, the way he layered them, the punctuation, the silences between the words astounded me. I wished I had written it. Looming above the glorious words was the permission he gave me. I've been in Neil's signing lines many times since and never had the composure to say it.
Thank you @neil-gaiman. Thank you for giving me permission to be myself. As I read Neverwhere a breeze blew the dust and cobwebs from my brain. It oiled creaking creative joints. You showed me that I didn't have to choose. I could be macabre, dark, sinister, a wee bit gruesome and still be whimsical, lyrical, bright, a wee bit innocent. You were the first author that made all my parts acceptable to myself. Choosing was no longer an issue. I didn't have to deny my more twisted creative impulses.
I read Neverwhere twice in a row as well (though it was in bursts the second time). I've read it many times since. If We Were Villains is likely to be regularly in my rotation as well. I was around 12/13 when my Grandma let me have a book of Shakespeare's plays that had survived a fire that had started in the building where her shop was. It probably still smells like smoke. Some of my favourite high school memories involve Shakespeare in my English classes. Yet I was never brave enough to stand on a stage and perform the words.
There is no point to this post. I am grateful people like ML Rio and Neil Gaiman make up stories and write them down. I'm grateful there are people out there that printed them. Mostly I am inspired, humbled and in awe.
Ps. Oliver and James. That is all.

"Then, with a paper plate heaped high with chicken legs, melon slices, mushroom vol-au-vents, caviar puffs, and small venison sausages, she began to circle the room, staring intently at each and every angelic artefact."
Yesterday's dinner was very loosely inspired by @neil-gaiman's "Neverwhere". Whenever I read delicious food descriptions in books I'm like "I want to eat this, too".
