“There is no good word for the opposite of lonesome. One might be tempted to suggest togetherness or contentment, but the fact that these two other words bear definitions unrelated to each other perfectly displays why lonesome cannot be properly mirrored. It does not mean solitude, nor alone, nor lonely, although lonesome can contain all of those words in itself. Lonesome means a state of being apart. Of being other. Alone-some.”

it’s been like 3 years since I read TRC and i’m honestly still conflicted about it. dead welsh kings? cool. psychic/paranormal stuff and ghost shit? cool. found family trope? very cool. delicate development of blue and gansey’s relationship? yes nice. original plot which was actually intriguing despite being pretty slow going? also cool. 

but if I try describing this series to anyone it always boils down to “quirky loner girl meets privileged rich boys”

i’m only 140 pages into the raven boys so far, but page 134 is where you find out that adam is abused by his family and, as someone who was abused as a child, that hit me like a truck

i’m a straight white middle class doctor, and my privilege is off the charts i know, but seeing a rare, difficult aspect of my upbringing portrayed in semi-mainstream media gave me the warm fuzzies in a weird kind of way

adam isn’t defined by his abuse and it’s obvious to me already that while you would never, ever wish that on somebody else, he has come out with a distict set of positive personality traits which were influenced by his abuse, and that resonates with me

thank u for the respresentation maggie, i look forward to where this goes ;
