YA Meme | 5/8 OTPs ● Kami and Jared, The Lynburn Legacy by Sarah Rees Brennan
Aw. Lovely image, with Jared acting as Kami’s reflection, below her, which fits, and also Jared in his brown leather jacket.
(Since I was just talking about Ash wearing his black leather jacket and the confusion that arose from it yesterday, and today I was talking about layers in story, here’s one:
Out-of-story, Ash is wearing a leather jacket because it will cause Kami to be confused at a crucial point between him and Jared, allowing for mistaken-identity hijinks [hey, blame it on the Bard, I didn’t write Twelfth Night] and also more exploration of identity, who we know, how much we know them, how much they’re like us, how we learn the differences between people by comparing them, as also played with as regards Lillian and Rosalind [identical twins], Angela and Rusty [siblings who look alike but are of different genders], and Kami and Jared [mirror and reflection, or they used to be, but not quite].
But in-story, why is Ash wearing a leather jacket, which isn’t buttoned-up-and-down Ash’s usual style? No reason but that he’s going to see his brother, for the first time since his brother abruptly left home and left him: he’s consciously or unconsciously playing up a resemblance, a potential link between them: consciously or unconsciously, reaching out.)
1. sun — two door cinema club // 2. between two points — the glitch mob ft. swan // 3. only if for a night — florence + the machine // 4. the enemy — andrew belle // 5. love natural — crystal fighters // 6.pompeii — bastille // 7. just one yesterday — fall out boy ft. foxes // 8. voyager — fur trade // 9. can’t keep your mind off — data romance // 10.litost — x ambassadors // 11. nothing left to say/rocks — imagine dragons // 12. don’t say a word — ellie goulding // 13. no light, no light — florence + the machine // 14. let her go — passenger // 15. without your love — ellie goulding
__________ a million thanks to the absolutely amazing alison for creating the cover art and helping me out with song choices! this would’ve taken way longer without her help <3
I love a mix, and I especially like the nod to Kami’s purple tights. ;) Fashion, baby.
BUT GUYS HAS ANYONE FANCAST BILL SKARSGÅRD AS JARED LYNBURN YET?!?!
I have not seen that fancast before but I am open to it. I have watched Hemlock Grove and was like ‘Eric from True Blood’s little brother is a vampire! My first clue was that he was Eric from True Blood’s little brother, and my second clue was how much he liked blood.’
… Maureen Johnson has penned several fine songs about Hemlock Grove. If any of you ever meet her, you should ask her to sing them.
Well, these are amazing! I love them all… Ash’s fancy gates, and Holly’s indicating she’s smart, too. Which she is—but often pretty girls are told they’re not smart, and also not having a specialty often makes people feel like, okay, they might be okay at SCHOOL, but they’re not really TALENTED. And I think Holly gets both, coming and going.
Plus Rusty’s sandwich! So appropriate for Untold. So many sandwiches! And Kami’s spyglass. BASICALLY, ONE HUNDRED PER CENT LOVE, WOULD REBLOG AGAIN.
I’M JUST GOING TO STOP YOU REAL QUICK AND WRITE THE BAND AU FANFICTION OF MY OWN NOVEL THAT I GUESS WE ALWAYS KNEW WAS COMING?
"As your singer-slash-band-manager and thus obvious leader," said Kami, "I’d like to hear a little bit less lip about the posters and the costumes being quote-unquote unbelievably shameful and embarrassing. It hurts my feelings."
"I didn’t question anything," said Holly. She had her tongue sticking out as she carefully bedazzled her guitar.
"That’s because you’re the best band member," said Kami, and Holly beamed.
"I wouldn’t question the costume if I’d got one," said Ash.
"Do you want to sell tickets?" Kami asked. "Have you seen Magic Mike? Because let me tell you who did: everybody."
"One Direction always wears shirts," Ash muttered.
"Not always," said Holly, and when Ash shot her a look of deep betrayal she smiled sweetly back.
"Thank you for being the only one besides me who ever provides valuable input, Holly," said Kami.
"I’m willing to compromise on fishnet," Ash suggested desperately.
"You don’t expect me to ask Angela or Holly to wear clothes that they might feel uncomfortable in, thus tacitly supporting centuries of women’s bodies being commodified and put on display, do you?" Kami said severely. "I couldn’t do it. That would be very wrong. Somebody has to take the bullet, and it’s going to be you guys. This isn’t a bandemocracy, Ash. This is a bandictatorship."
"You could ask, but you would be very disappointed by the answer," Angela said darkly. She appeared to be napping on a drum.
Kami looked at Ash’s horrified face and relented.
"I don’t wish to be a cruel bandictator," she said. "One of you can wear this waistcoat. Please note: I would strongly prefer if you did not button it up, and I have ways of making you sorry."
She laid a black silk waistcoat down on the floor. Ash met Jared’s eyes. Ash looked away from Jared’s eyes because they were terrifying.
"How do we decide who gets the waistcoat?" he said.
"I don’t know," said Kami. "I can’t be expected to decide every little thing, I have a band to run! Fight for it or something."
Jared put down his tambourine. The tinkle as it hit the tabletop was, against all odds, slightly menacing.
