In 1978, Harper Lee started taking notes for a true-crime book about the trial of Robert Burns, who was accused of shooting the Rev. Willie Maxwell to death in a crowded funeral home -- after the funeral of Maxwell’s third wife’s adopted daughter, whom he was widely believed to have killed (along with several other people) for insurance money. But the book was never written -- or if it was, Lee hid the manuscript so well it’s never turned up. New Yorker writer Casey Cep tells the whole tangled story in Furious Hours -- and you can find our critic Ilana Masad’s review here.

SUMMER READING SUGGESTIONS
Love Harper Lee? Author Casey Cep’s well researched book FURIOUS HOURS is a fascinating combination of true crime, Southern courtroom drama and an neat overview of Lee’s life. You may want to read IN COLD BLOOD and Harper Lee’s novels afterward for total immersion.

June was a month that was full of reading and blogging so I’m a happy blogger right now! I read 30 books. I was hoping to try and blog every day in June, which I didn’t manage but, having said that, I blogged 31 times over the month (a couple of days I had more than one post) so I’m really pleased with that.
Otherwise my highlight for June came on the penultimate day of the month when we finally got to pick up our new car! It’s highly unlikely that I’ll ever be able to drive again but our new car gives me and my husband more freedom as it has a hoist in the boot to life my mobility scooter/wheelchair. Also, because it’s an SUV the seats are higher and the doors open wider so it’s easier for me to get in and out of the car.
  Here are the books I read in June:
I Know Who You Are by Alice Feeney
This thriller was really enjoyable but the final 20% or so just didn’t work for me. I do love Alice Feeney’s writing though so will be looking out for her other books in the future.
The Space Between Time by Charlie Laidlaw
This book was such a beautiful read. It got to me in a way that I wasn’t expecting and I loved that about it.
I Heart Hawaii by Lindsey Kelk
This was a wonderful ending to a fab series, it really did tie everything up in such a gorgeous way and I loved it!
The Sea Refuses No River by Bethany Rivers
This is a stunning poetry collection that explores grief after the death of a parent. I really connected to this one and recommend it.
Horizontal Collaboration by Navie and Carole Maurel
This graphic novel was such an interesting and engaging book, it really got under my skin in ways I didn’t expect it to so I really recommend it.
The Friend Who Lied by Rachel Amphlett
This was my first novel by this author and it definitely won’t be the last because I very much enjoyed it.
Girl in Snow by Danya Kukafka
I’d had an ARC of this on my TBR for over a year so I was glad to finally pick it up.  It was a really gripping read so I’m really glad I read it.
Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer
I listened to the audio book on Scribd* and found it really interesting but the way the book was written wasn’t quite as engaging as I hoped it would be.
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
I finally read this book this month and I’m so happy that I did because I loved it! I’ve had the hardback of this on my TBR ever since it was first published but somehow hadn’t read it yet. It was my priority book from my 20 Books of Summer challenge and I loved every single second that I spent reading this one!
Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I had an ARC of this but I decided to buy the audiobook as I’d heard it was good and I’m so glad I did. I completely and utterly adored this book, I think it’s going to be one of my favourite reads of the year. I highly recommend it, especially the audio!
Every Mother’s Nightmare by Mark Thomas
I knew this would be a difficult read because of the subject matter but in the end it was the endless grammar, punctuation and formatting errors that almost made me give up on this. I did finish it but I wouldn’t recommend it.
What Red Was by Rosie Price
This was an okay read for me. I enjoyed the first half but then it just started to drag a little. The writing is really good but there were too many storylines for the length of the novel. I would look out for more books by this author in the future though.
The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna by Juliet Grames
This was my second book for the 20 Books of Summer challenge and I adored it! It’s such a stunning novel and one that I keep finding myself thinking about.
The Lost Properties of Love by Sophie Ratcliffe
This book is part-fiction and part-memoir and I loved it. It’s such a beautiful novel and one that really made me think over things in my own life from a new perspective. I already know that I want to re-read this.
Nutshell by Ian McEwan
I really enjoyed this short novel about an unborn baby listening in to his mother and her boyfriend plotting the murder of his father! It’s reminded me how much I enjoy Ian McEwan’s writing.
An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
I had an ARC of this but decided to listen to the audio and I’m so glad I did. I think the audio really added to this book and kept me engaged in the story all the way through.
After the End by Clare Mackintosh
This book is stunning! It’s such a heartbreaking read but it will also make you think. I loved this one and highly recommend it.
She’s Not There by Joy Fielding
I bought this book a while ago and have been so keen to read it so I’m glad to have got to it in June. It’s not a book that will really stay with me but I did really enjoy the time that I spent reading it.
The Swap by Fiona Mitchell
I enjoyed this book but it was lacking something for me. I think I just wanted a little bit more depth but that’s not to say that it wasn’t an enjoyable read.
Keep You Close by Karen Cleveland
I really enjoyed this spy thriller and pretty much read it in one sitting. It’s a great premise and it’s such a gripping story so I recommend it.
Last Seen Alive by Claire Douglas
I’ve had this book on my TBR ever since it was published so when I spotted the audio on my library BorrowBox app I decided to part-listen and part-read this book. I really did enjoy this book and now I’m even more excited to read the author’s new book!
Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss
I really enjoyed this book, I read it all in one sitting as it’s a short book and it had more of an impact on me than I was expecting.
The Perfect Betrayal by Lauren North
This is such a brilliant psychological thriller; it’s one of very, very few novels where I just didn’t work out what was going to happen. It’s a flawless thriller and I loved it. I highly recommend this one!
The Trouble With Goats and Sheep by Joanna Cannon
This is another book from my 20 Books of Summer challenge and I fell in love with this one. It’s such a gorgeous book and it’s one I’ll never forget! I did part-read and part-listen to this one (I listened on *Scribd) and the narrator, Paula Wilcox, is so perfect for this book.
Dead Mountain by Donnie Eichar
This is such a fascinating and intriguing book. I enjoyed seeing the process of how the author believes he may have solved the mystery of what happened to the hikers. I still feel like there’s something more to the story though so if anyone has any recommendations I’d love to hear them.
Furious Hours by Casey Cep
I found this book so interesting, it was such a good read. I was intrigued by the case that this book focuses on and also to learn more about Harper Lee. I will try and review this one soon but in the meantime I definitely recommend it.
Something To Tell You by Lucy Diamond
This is another book where I had a NetGalley copy but listened to it on audio. It’s such an engaging story that ends up being a really heart-warming read.
Hard Pushed by Leah Hazard
I found this book so interesting, it’s really eye-opening to read about what life is like for midwives. I’ll be reviewing this one soon.
Something to Live For by Richard Roper
I loved this novel! It’s such a moving and heart-warming book and it was such a tonic on a couple of days when I was feeling a bit low and unwell. I’ll be reviewing this one next week for the blog tour.
Me and the Table by Stephen Hendry
I downloaded the audio of this on a whim when I saw it in the BorrowBox app, and I’m so glad I did because it was a really enjoyable memoir.
  *I’m a paid member of Scribd (as mentioned above) and they have given me a code that will allow you to sign up and get two months free (and I would get one month free). If you’d like to try them out here is the link. I love Scribd and highly recommend them.
June Blog Posts & Reviews:
I started off June by Wrapping-Up May! May was a great reading month so June had a lot to live up to, and as you can see from this post it managed it! My first review of June was Dead Inside by Noelle Holten, a brilliant new crime novel by a fab blogger and author! I then continued on with my occasional Mini review series with my thoughts on Ordinary People by Diana Evans, Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward, The Furies by Katie Lowe, and Entanglement by Katy Mahood. I read the final book in the I Heart series I Heart Hawaii by Lindsey Kelk  and managed to review it straight away for once! It was then time for This Week in Books 5 June . My next review was of an incredible novel that I read in one sitting The Flight of Cornelia Blackwood by Susan Elliot Wright. It was then my turn on the blog tour for We Never Said Goodbye by Helene Fermont and I shared my review. It was then time for my first Book Haul  of the month!
In the second week of June I posted another selection of Mini reviews of Girl in Snow by Danya Kukafka, I Know Who You Are by Alice Feeney, The Golden Child by Wendy James, and Need to Know by Karen Cleveland. It was then time for my stop on the blog tour for A Modern Family by Helga Flatland, a book that left its mark on me and I’m sure it’ll be one of my books of the year! I also took part in the blog tour for The Space Between Time by Charlie Laidlaw, another fab book! I then decided to go back to WWW Wednesdays  and shared my current and recent reads plus what I hoped to read next! My next review was of another incredible novel The Van Apfel Girls Are Gone by Felicity McLean, which I’m still finding myself thinking about weeks after reading it! Then it was time for another Book Haul!
In the third week of June I shared my review of The Friend Who Lied by Rachel Amphlett as part of the blog tour. It was my first book by the author and it definitely won’t be the last as I really enjoyed it. My next review was of the brilliant Sister of Mine by Laurie Petrou. Then it was time for my next WWW Wednesdays post! It was then my turn to share my review of the beautiful debut novel Death and Other Happy Endings by Melanie Cantor. My final review of this week was of the moving poetry collection The Sea Refuses No River by Bethany Rivers. Then it was time for another Book Haul (eek!).
In the last week of June I started by sharing another selection of Mini reviews of An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, The Neighbour by Fiona Cummins, What Red Rose by Rosie Price, and Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter. I then got to share my review of the stunning graphic novel Horizontal Collaboration by Navie and Carole Maurel. It was my turn on the blog tour for The Perfect Betrayal by Lauren North, this was one of the best psychological thrillers I’ve read in a long time as it completely blindsided me! I also shared my latest WWW Wednesdays  post. I was delighted to share my thoughts on a gorgeous book that was part novel and part memoir The Lost Properties of Love by Sophie Ratcliffe. Up next came my review of spy thriller Keep You Close by Karen Cleveland and that was followed by my thoughts on the incredible After the End by Clare Mackintosh! I then shared another book haul and that was followed with the audio book tag!
  The state of my TBR:
So I think I’m going to give up on tracking my TBR for the moment as it’s just completely out of control! I need to go through my books and have a sort out so once I’ve managed to get that done I may start tracking it again. I will be doing my mid-year book stats post later this week so my TBR will feature in that post. Eeeek!!
    How was June for you? I hope you all had a good month and that you read lots of good books. Did you read many books? What was your favourite book of the month? Please tell me in the comments, I’d love to know. Also, if you have a blog please feel free to leave a link to your month’s wrap-up post and I’ll be sure to read and comment back. 🙂
  That Was The Month That Was… June 2019! June was a month that was full of reading and blogging so I'm a happy blogger right now!

Give me plus size women in main character roles where the story does not revolve around them being plus sized in the slightest—
Show me post-apocalyptic plus size women with nail studded baseball bats and hand guns and the ability to use both and use them effectively—
Show me a rebel plus size woman screaming for the freedom of her people with a bow and arrow strapped to her back and her fist raised and winning—
Show me a plus size woman who is desired— who is falling in love without thinking twice and fighting for that love and then show me that love withstanding every trial that’s thrown it’s way—
Show me a plus size vampire who is the epitome of desire and sex and lust and beauty and grace and everything so fucking delicious and wanted—
Show me the queen of dragons with thighs that her knight would cave for— beg for— and show me her burning cities to the ground and not regretting a single damn second of it—
Show me something that rivals The Maze Runner, The Notebook, The Hunger Games, Game of Thrones, The Vampire Diaries and give me plus size women in the same roles as Teresa, Allie, Katniss, Daenerys, Elena and make it about the adventures and not about how they’re afraid to look in the mirror—
Show me fearless, loving, loved plus size women on the big screen slaying dragons and slaying men and, yeah I’ll say it, fucking men too—
And women—
Show me plus size women who don’t hate themselves— who have thick arms and thick tummies and— god— thick thighs and love themselves—
Show me plus size women loving themselves and show me them now

You guys know that capitalism doesn’t mean “involves money”, right? It is legitimately important that you all know that the problem with capitalism is not “uses currency”.
Capitalism is bad because it exploits people and puts profit over human life and dignity. It’s not bad or morally wrong for people to have lots of money, it’s wrong for them to make that money by exploiting workers. It’s not wrong to sell products and labor for money, it’s wrong to run everyone else out of business so you can form a monopoly and jack up prices once people have no choice but to buy from you.
It’s really starting to piss me off, the frequency with which I’m seeing people call others “capitalist scum” and “bootlickers” for things like “charging money for products and services”, “suggesting that laborers should be paid fairly”, and the classic “having more money than me”. Capitalism is a huge problem, but when you don’t understand what the problem actually is and just start assuming that any transaction involving money is “capitalism”, you are diluting and weakening the cause you claim to be fighting for.
The problem with capitalism is the exploitation of labor, not the existence of money.

Apparently Lil Nas X tweeted that he liked dick (I think the context was that somebody was like “lol what if he’s pretending to be gay for clout” and he was like “nope I just like dick it’s not that deep”).
This shouldn’t surprise anybody, as he’s an openly gay man.
Except people are now calling him transphobic.
He said nothing about trans people. He did not mention anything except for liking dick.
We are at a point where gay people just stating an obvious fact about their own sexuality is considered transphobic. Are you fucking kidding me? Homosexuals should be allowed to talk about obvious parts of homosexuality without people jumping on them to tell them how wrong they are.
I don’t want to see any of you idiots celebrating Nas for being openly gay if you’re going to turn around and belittle him for saying he likes dick.

would you ever do a hunger games au? like anakin and obi-wan in the arena and doing a katniss and peeta thing where they both survive? anakin maybe killing the competitors so obi-wan wouldn't have to? (just thinking that child killing is in character for him) anyway no pressure or anything I just haven't stopped thinking about a hunger games au of obikin and. I thought maybe you could do something with it!
i need you to know i shamefully snorted at the child murder thing i'm sorry and i'm also sorry this took so long and it's a bit all over the place and doesn't actually get into the Games at all (+ it's been years since I read the books so all inaccuracies should be tastefully ignored pls) this may not be what you asked for tbh but here you go!!
(content warnings: hunger games typical discussion of child murder, but nothing graphic)
(1.7k)
Anakin’s first emotion after his name is called is a strange sense of relief.
Good, he thinks. I’ll get to go with Obi-Wan. He won’t be alone.
He dutifully steps forward out of the crowd towards the stage, where the announcer is waiting next to Obi-Wan.
Obi-Wan who is looking at him with an expression of naked devastation.
Anakin tries to convey that it’ll be alright, that it’s fine, that they knew this was a possibility. Sure, it’s Anakin’s last year eligible to be in the Games. Sure his nineteenth birthday is in two weeks, at which point he would become too old to qualify as a child to the Capitol, but what’s done is done.
Obi-Wan will be his mentor, because Obi-Wan has been the mentor for District Four ever since he won his own Games seven years ago when he was sixteen and Anakin was twelve.
That year’s known unofficially as the most boring Games in Panem history, but the Capitol loves how handsome Obi-Wan’s grown to be. So what if he didn’t kill his competitors messily or with a bloodthirsty joy? He’s so polite in his interviews all these years later, and look at those dimples!
It makes Anakin sick, every time Obi-Wan has to leave District Four and travel to the Capitol to be fawned over and stroked and used. His nightmares are always worse the weeks after he gets back, and he never lets Anakin hold him during them.
And it’s even worse during the actual Games, when Obi-Wan is put in charge of two children’s lives only to see them brutally murdered on screen a week later. The cameras always show his reaction when the competitors from District Four die. They must think he cries pretty or something.
Anakin hates the Capitol. He hates them for what they’ve done to Obi-Wan. What they’ve made him into
As he gets close enough to the stage, he notices that Obi-Wan’s hands are shaking slightly.
He doesn’t even listen to the name of the girl being called. She’s not important. She’ll be dead in a few days time. What’s important is Obi-Wan. What’s important is comforting him, is reassuring him. Is coming back to him.
This is the moment when Anakin resolves that these Games will become known as the quickest in history.
---
The girl is understandably sullen and upset on the train. “I should get a different mentor!” she demands. “It’s obvious you’re going to play favorites with him.”
Anakin doesn’t snap back because she’ll be dead in a few days. Though she really shouldn’t use that tone with Obi-Wan.
“I’m not playing favorites,” Obi-Wan insists. “I don’t have favorites.”
“You literally just wiped sauce off his mouth with your finger,” the girl points out. “And then he licked it!”
Anakin smirks at her. Of course Obi-Wan has favorites. Of course Anakin is Obi-Wan’s favorite. It took him years to wear down Obi-Wan until he allowed him this close, and years after that until he finally got to kiss him for the first time, just a few months ago.
If she thinks he’s going to give up any of his Obi-Wan time so she can get her hopes up about not dying in a few days, she’s got another thing coming.
But Obi-Wan shifts away from him and he looks guilty.
If Anakin could get away with killing the other person from his district, he would. But it’d probably make Obi-Wan sad.
“Is whining part of your strategy?” he asks waspishly instead. “I don’t think it’ll make you many allies.”
She has the nerve to look offended.
“Anakin,” Obi-Wan chides. Underneath the table, he squeezes his knee.
“Everyone in the district knows about you two,” she glares at him. “You haven’t exactly kept it a secret.”
Anakin hasn’t exactly tried to keep it a secret. The first night Obi-Wan had kissed him, he went straight home and told his mother, his neighbor, his schoolmates, his cat, and his ex-girlfriend.
(No one had been surprised, except maybe the cat.)
“It’s not fair,” she cries. “Who can I talk to to get a different mentor for me?”
“The ethics board,” Anakin smiles, all teeth, settling back into his seat and slinging an arm around Obi-Wan’s shoulders.
“Anakin,” Obi-Wan says again, this time more exasperatedly. “Robin, I promise I will be the best mentor you can ask for. It is my wish to see you survive as long as possible in the next few weeks.”
The girl jumps to her feet in outrage. “You can’t even say you want me to win!” she yells. There are tears at the corners of her eyes. If she were a little less annoying, Anakin would feel quite bad for her. Obviously Obi-Wan doesn’t want her to win. Anakin’s right here.
She storms out of the train compartment, her face in her hands. Anakin barely waits for the door to close before he’s slipping into Obi-Wan’s lap and throwing his arms around his neck with a groan. “God, I thought she’d never leave.”
He isn’t pushed away. Obi-Wan must realize they only have a handful of days left to be together before he goes into the arena.
“Anakin,” Obi-Wan says wearily, even as his arms encircle his waist.
Anakin presses a kiss to his nose and then another to his cheek. “It’s alright to have favorites, Obi-Wan,” he murmurs. “And she should know there’s no way she’s winning anything. Don’t waste your time.”
“I will do everything I can to make sure she survives as long as possible,” Obi-Wan repeats. “I don’t think I can survive anything else.”
Obi-Wan’s voice sounds shaky, so Anakin presses their lips together. Best not to talk for awhile.
------
“We should discuss strategy,” Obi-Wan says later that night through frantic kisses. “Sponsors, story, training--”
“I have a strategy,” Anakin murmurs back as he moves further down the bed, rucking up his partner’s shirt. “Win.”
----
“You look absolutely radiant,” Anakin tells the girl in an undertone while they’re in line for their interviews. She turns around to glare at him. The designer for their district has gone for the typical fish designs that people always associate with District Four, and they’ve dressed her up in a shimmering iridescent gown that flares at the ends like a fish’s tail.
Anakin’s own outfit is mostly a fishing net draped over one shoulder and a pair of tight pants. The designer, much to Obi-Wan’s embarrassment and Anakin’s satisfaction, had taken one look at his shirtless chest and decided to dress him in as little clothes as possible.
“Weird braid,” is all she says.
Obi-Wan had done it late last night when both of them had tired each other out and Anakin had curled up on his chest. After his Games, Obi-Wan’s hands like to do something. The repetitive motion of braiding and unbraiding Anakin’s hair soothes his demons.
It’s one of the reasons Anakin’s grown it out to his shoulders, much longer than is practical for his district.
Obi-Wan had gone to unbraid it, and Anakin had stopped him. He wanted to keep it. To wear it into the Games.
“Thank you,” he says generously. “I saw your score. 7’s not too bad.”
She sneers at him. “Did you celebrate your 11 with your boyfriend?”
“Oh sorry,” he winces. “Did you hear us? I’m just so bad at biting my tongue when he does this thing with his.”
She scoffs in disgust and turns back around. “I hope he has to watch you die.”
Anakin glares at her back. He knows he can’t kill her himself. But there has to be a way to hurt her and her chances and still have plausible deniability.
When it’s her turn for an interview, she’s vapid and pretty. She laughs and touches the interviewer’s arm.
“I’ve never spent much time in District Four,” the interviewer says jovially. “But tell me, really. Is everyone there as beautiful as the people you keep sending us? I mean. Obi-Wan Kenobi, ladies and gentlemen, am I right?” The audience laughs and hollers. Anakin hates them all. “And now you, Robin, and Anakin Skywalker. Damn!”
Robin--Anakin needs to stop forgetting her name--giggles high in her throat. “It was a very, very enjoyable train ride up,” she says with a stupid wiggle of her eyebrows. “Just this side of too long.”
The audience loses it.
Anakin loses it.
He can’t believe she’s sitting there publicly suggesting that Anakin shares Obi-Wan with anyone. With her. The nerve.
The camera pans to Obi-Wan in the crowd, who looks shocked, embarrassed, and deeply troubled.
Anakin won’t let this stand. He just hopes Obi-Wan forgives him.
The interviewer greets him excitedly when he walks out, and Anakin gives him a sheepish sort of smile.
“Lady killer Skywalker!” the interviewer says. Anakin laughs along with him. “All the girls back home must have been heartbroken to see you leave.”
“But I’ve heard they love watching me go,” he jokes with a charming smile. If that girl--Robin--can do it, he can do it much better. “There’s really only one person for me though,” he murmurs, letting his smile die.
“Oh?” The interviewer asks, leaning forward with interest.
“But sometimes I wonder if they’re only using me for my body,” he says, casting his eyes down. “I love them. Heart and soul, everything I am. But when I told them, they just laughed.”
This is technically true. The first time Anakin had told Obi-Wan that he was in love with him, the older boy had laughed his confession off, saying he was too young to know what he wanted.
“Oh, to be young and in love,” the interviewer sighs theatrically. “So your plan is to win the Games and then win her heart when you get back home?”
Anakin makes himself look sad. Tragically sad. Like he can’t bear to go on.
“They came with me,” he says.
If the audience’s reaction to Robin’s fake confession was huge, its reaction to Anakin’s words is even bigger. Of course they think he’s talking about the girl. That’s exactly what Anakin had wanted. Now he’s the broken-hearted boy and she’s the vapid, self-absorbed bitch. She'll have a hard time finding sponsors now.
It’s very, very hard to hide his smile, a task made exponentially more hard when he sees Obi-Wan bury his face in his hands.
“It’s alright,” Anakin tells the interviewer, without taking his eyes off of Obi-Wan. “I’ll survive.”

something about the scene where camila begs luz to never go back to the boiling isles if/when she gets home sits...very wrong with me. and I know camila was stressed and confused and having a Moment there, so she probably didn’t think about what she was asking luz to do nor did she have the emotional capacity to seriously consider luz’s perspective. plus there was a bit of a time crunch with the portal closing so there wasn’t time for either of them to seriously talk.
and yet. 
most children don’t leave their parents to move to demon realms with no reliable portal access, this is true. and most don’t leave the house at fourteen, also true. but children do move away. they do find family outside their parents. they do and they should. luz wasn’t happy in the human world, not because of camila but because she didn’t fit in there, she didn’t have friends, she wasn’t flourishing. and she is in the boiling isles, and even though camila could to some extent see that, it never dawned on her that luz might be happier there. 
I have to hope that, if camila does see eventually how much happier luz is with the owl house family, she’ll change her mind and support whatever decision luz makes. but I really, really hope this doesn’t lead to an arc with camila trying to guilt luz into coming back to the human world. that would...be disappointing.

how i desperately wish it had gone: hajime freezes in the door way and he turns around, "hold on a second... do you... are you saying you want me to stay..?" nagito shake his head no, in his head he's thinking 'please understand please understand please understand' hajime thinks for a second then says "i guess i can stay a while" he knows hes not mistaken when he sees nagito's smile. I also like the idea that since nagito is sick, he makes requests that are a little selfish and he hints how he feels abt hajime, that's why he asked him to stay.
-🌺anon
sobs.........🎶 we could have had it aaaaallllllllll.......🎶
chunsoft i’m begging you to make hajime use the common sense that i know he has in situations outside of the trial room. pretty please with a cherry on top? this is painful

I am so tired of people treating kirumi like she only exists for the purpose of caring for others. Yes she may believe that is their only purpose but it isn’t. She’s so so much for then how the fandom sees them. She’s not a mom. She’s so so much more then a maid.
Treat kirumi like their own character. She doesn’t just exist for others. She has interesting morals and personality traits. She’s not there to be kokichi and gonta’s mother.
