Update

Finished Kieli vol 5, just have 4 left! Bought Another the hard cover edition (I'm such a shallow shallow girl), and plan to by Index and that dungeon light novel Yen On will release when Amazon lets me preorder them.

So yeah.

Goth

Just read the light novel Goth by Otsuichi. It was an enjoyable read, especially the last story. Reading the author's note really explained things, I love understanding how a person creates a story, sometimes that's more fascinating than the story itself. But I could've done without all the mentions of how light novels are viewed as inferior, I get it they get no respect, move on.

I really want to finish reading Kieli already, but I have a 14 day book loan that came in for me and I need to read that already because there is a long hold list and I feel like if I don't read it I never will or something. Anyway I miss Kieli, miss it, which is weird since I struggle to read it, but whatever right.

Light novels

Lately I've made it my mission to read mostly light novels (preferably published by YenPress because I love them and they do a really good job).

Some series I bought:

BOOK GIRL series by Mizuki Nomura:

  1. BOOK GIRL AND THE SUICIDAL MIME

  2. BOOK GIRL AND THE FAMISHED SPIRIT

  3. BOOK GIRL AND THE CAPTIVE FOOL

  4. BOOK GIRL AND THE CORRUPTED ANGEL

  5. BOOK GIRL AND THE WAYFARER’S LAMENTATION

  6. BOOK GIRL AND THE UNDINE WHO BORE A MOONFLOWER

  7. BOOK GIRL AND THE SCRIBE WHO FACED GOD (Part 1)

  8. BOOK GIRL AND THE SCRIBE WHO FACED GOD (Part 2)

Good series but slightly confusing. I read up to book 4 and plan to reread from the start after I finish the other series I own. Learn about famous novels.

SWORD ART ONLINE series by Reki Kawahara:

  1. Sword Art Online 1: Aincrad

  2. Sword Art Online 2: Aincrad

I own the first vol but won't read it until vol 2 comes out since the that storyline is two vols long. The series has 13+ vols and seems to be about a virtual reality fantasy world. So excited.

I also have Goth by

I feel like I'm transitionaling from manga to light novels (much like I transitioned from anime to manga), it's a complicated feeling.

m/m love

Right now I'm really enjoying Mary Calmes, her chartacters tend to be Mary Sueish and everyone kind of loves/obsesses about them but somehow it still works. I don't really get it, but I always feel happy after reading her books (minus 3-4 titles) so I figured I'd post her here.

Books by Mary Calmes:

saw this somewhere

Copy this sentence into your livejournal if you're in a heterosexual marriage/relationship (or if you think you might be someday), and you don't want it "protected" by the bigots who think that gay marriage hurts it somehow.

Okay people, lets discuss this like rational adults.  Completely removing the issue of religion (Because quite frankly it shouldn't be an issue at all if we're discussing laws and government regulations, that's part and parcel of the seperation of church and state) why shouldn't homosexuals be allowed to marry?

Because marriage is a sacred bond between a man and a woman?  Not legally it isn't.  It's an institution like any other, which is why common-law marriages are possible.  Those two people didn't make any oaths under God, why should they be allowed to be 'married' if two men or women who have the exact same type of relationship for the exact same amount of time aren't?

Alright then.  Because marriage is intended to produce and support children, providing them with a stable and loving home?  Well let's handle the 'producing' part of that first shall we?  If you go by this logic everyone should have a fertility test done before they are married.  If one of the two aren't able to have children, they cannot marry.  This includes homosexuals, but also women who have had hysterectomies or gotten their tubes tied, elderly couples who have passed child rearing age, men who have had vasictomies, men with overly low sperm counts, women who take birth control pills or employ other contraceptives, people with medical conditions that make them unable to have children, or hell, just people who don't want children.  Okay, so now we've decided who can't get married and who can.  What if a couple gets married and decides afterward that they don't want kids?  Are they legally divorced?  After all, they aren't intending to produce children and that's the point of marriage...  Now lets say that they do have kids, raising and supporting them together.  When Mommy cheats on Daddy or Daddy starts beating on Mommy, normally divorce would be an option, but then they wouldn't be giving their kids a stable and loving home would they?  So do they have to stay married?

I know it sounds ridiculous to look at it that way, but that's exactly what it means to ban homosexual marriage.  You can't exclude one group of people with that kind of justification without it starting to apply to EVERYONE, because that's the way laws evolve. 

Religion isn't the point.  

Protecting the institution of marriage isn't the point. 

Making sure that every US citizen has the same rights IS.
