SERIAL UPDATES: THE HAREM MASTER, ANASTASIA, THE HEART OF THE KINGDOM

This week’s serial updates feature new chapters from:

Megan Derr’s The Harem Master updates with Chapter 2

Lord Demir has spent his life trying to appease a brutal, selfish king, and keep the concubines under his care alive—and now he is on the verge of losing everything. The council wants to abolish the harems, there are no heirs to the throne, and the foreigners control the Steward. One wrong move will tip tensions into civil war.

Crown Prince Ihsan returns to find his home in turmoil, and the royal court so full of vipers it’s impossible to say which of them will strike first. Removing his father from the throne, one way or another, should be a simple matter. Staying alive and proving himself a worthy king, however, will be far more difficult.

Crown Princess Euren has spent the last five years in hiding so that she could not be used against her father or Ihsan. But she is the daughter of a soldier, never meant to wear a crown, never trained to fight battles where words are the weapon of choice. If she hopes to keep herself and her loves ones alive, she’ll have to learn fast.

Note: This story contains polyamory.

Emma Taylor’s Anastasia updates with Chapter 3

When the farm where she lives begins to die, Anastasia’s father casts out her mother and sister in order to save it. In revenge, her mother takes Anastasia as well. The three of them move to a strange town where the streets never stay still, and only the rats know way.

They are saved from a squalid life when her mother unexpectedly remarries, but Anastasia does not know quite what to make of her new stepsister, and before she can truly settle into yet another life her mother begins to act strangely and her sister grows deathly ill …

Sasha L. Miller’s The Heart of the Kingdom updates with Chapter 15

All Cenric wanted was a necklace to gift to his lady love, in the hopes it might persuade her to actually become his lady love. Instead of love, however, Cenric is informed of her engagement to someone else, wakes up to find his house burning down around him, and is dragged away by a man who might have saved him, but won’t say much about why one necklace has Cenric running away from someone willing to kill to get it back.

Of course, if you are not in the US, you might have to persuade it that you are by, for example, giving it a US zipcode. Did I say that out loud?

Which sword is best in a one-on-one duel?

… Longsword? Rapier? Sabre? Backsword?

Assuming the fight is strictly one-on-one, no armour of any kind, only one sword-like weapon of medium length allowed.

Instead of calling it the natural and organic community let’s call it the anti-science panic merchant community.

Natural =/= safe and good, synthetic =/= dangerous and bad.

'Chemical free' is a fictional state.

Oxygen is carcinogenic.

Preview: The Witch and the Egg

amvi1323:

Title: The Witch and the Egg

Description: Decades ago, in a moment of despair, he summoned a witch. Offered a choice, the witch presented a gift for him in the form of an egg. He could either accept the witch’s offer or suffer. But Ide refused the witch’s gift and was cursed, fleeing to Castle Gantor, home to the Kingdom of Balen’s misfits. There he lived in seclusion and worked to hide his identity from those closest to him. But after a trade mission from the North returns, bearing with it rumors of witch haunting the Hydlevale, Ide’s life begins to unravel as the curse comes to fulfillment.

Author’s Note: This a preview, so it will be replaced with the full story in the future and is subject to change.

This is my shout out for a beta. I know I’ve got slash lovers in my follows, so. It’s m/m dark fantasy (with happy ending). I wanted ask peeps I knew before contacting a random person. Also, if you don’t know (because I didn’t) a beta reader is someone who reads over the story and tells the author what works or what doesn’t, and tries to help improve. Not quite like an editor (I guess?), yeah.

Also, suggestions for a better summary are always appreciated. I don’t fee like it captures the story, so I’m actually going to work on that more today.

If someone reads fewer books than you do, it does not make them less intelligent than you. It does not even make them a worse reader. If someone reads different types of books than you do, it doesn’t make them a bad reader, either. It just means they are a different human being than you.

Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel 

Speaking their lines vs the final product

Why is Vin Diesel looking down? Is he worried he’s gonna forget his line?

Vin Diesel asked the director his inspiration for every line he did and did multiple takes until he was satisfied. He also recorded the line over 1,000 times and also recorded his lines in Mandarin, Portuguese, French, and Spanish so they could use his real voice in those versions. He’s looking at his lines because Vin Diesel is a  dedicated  motherfucking professional

And then he showed up at the LA premiere like this: 

Vin Diesel in an I AM GROOT shirt, on stilts, because he is awesome and magical

Stilts, people!

Vin Diesel is so fantastic every time I hear people mock him I just want to be like “excuse you, do you know of any other multi-racial actor in Hollywood who’s fronted a blockbuster franchise featuring an unashamedly multi-cultural cast full of primarily non-white actors, and who has done it unapologetically over and over again for *seven* installments? NO, YOU DON’T, SIT THE FUCK DOWN.”

<3 <3 <3

Vin Diesel makes goofy movies like The Pacifier so he can keep making Riddick movies. He even went so far as to found Tigon Studios to make sure the Riddick video game was good (it was awesome).

I love Vin Diesel!

In high school and college, when Vin Diesel really rose to box office prominence, I used to hate Vin Diesel because he seemed like the kind of dumb macho guy that A. made fun of me a lot and B., well, A’s enough, isn’t it? 

And then he went on “The Tonight Show” and talked in depth about his high school life as a hardcore D&D player. So. I’m on board with Vin Diesel now. And also, like, don’t judge people by how they look

i don’t even care about the gifs. reblogging for the comments and cause Vin is my boy.
