  • Alright hello I’m going to tell you about my favorite ghosty, scary-but-not-that-scary, super entertaining book that needs to be more popular: Lockwood & Co.

    I am absolutely not exaggerating when I say that the Lockwood & Co. series is %100 on my top tier, need-to-read book that is absolutely amazing. Not only does it have an amazing author (Jonathan Stroud) who also has lots of other amazing series (Bartimaeus) it also simply has something for everyone; action, adventure, ghosts, a hint of romance, and it’s really funny as well!

    Without spoiling it, here’s a quick overview(minor spoilers ahead- you find it all out pretty quickly though):

    Lucy Carlyle, our main character, lives in a world where ghosts are common entities. Most are Very Evil. There are people who get rid of ghosts by burning their Sources- the object that the host is tied to- but here’s the catch; only children can see ghosts. Once you are an adult, you slowly stop seeing ghosts- so, the ghosts are vanquished by children. Naturally. Not to mention that some children can see ghosts, some can hear them, and come can sense them by feeling their source.

    So, the story follows Lucy, who kills ghosts as her job, her mysterious new boss, and her interesting new colleague. It’s an amazing story with 5.5 books. (Yep, there’s book 1.5. It’s a short story by the same author)

    So, in conclusion, the Lockwood & Co. series is definitely worth reading.

  • Lockwood: I never make the same mistake twice.


    Quill: No. You make the same mistake four or five times, because you don’t learn the first time.

    Lockwood:


    Lockwood: I wish I had a valid counterargument but you’re making some very good points.

  • EDITED. I’ve read the comments and reblogs and re-evaluated the manner in which I wrote parts of this post. Apologies to anyone who was offended; was not my intention in the least. I have edited the post below, and stand by the newly worded version.


    What I don’t ever understand, is why authors in fanfiction completely disregard the actual character when writing about the character. For example, Lucy Carlyle from Lockwood and Co. I’ve read COUNTLESS fics that portray her as “tiny,” “light,” “skinny.” Stroud makes it a point to show that she’s not skinny as a stick. She’s curvier and heavier. Why to you have to wave your generic wand of cliche over her? Stop it.

    Lucy’s body type is very rarely depicted in book, tv shows, movies, ect., at least from what I have read. In fanfictions, even less so. I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve read mention of a heavier girl in a fic. I feel that it removes a key piece of the character’s… characterization. Furthermore, J. Stroud essentially made a whole CROWD of people (including myself, a midsized person, who is heavier around the hips and thighs like Lucy) very happy and appreciated.

    I have absolutely nothing against thinner and lighter people. All I’m saying is that the representation they have is more than plenty. And the physical description of a character, especially when the character differs from the norm that is usually portrayed in media and entertainment, takes away so much from the character and the readers.

    Also, all those nightmare fanfics. Not the ones reflective of the scene in the books. And not the ones that are elegantly crafted to reflect something that Stroud’s characters might actually experience. I’m referring to those that are most often found on the underwritten, under-edited, and under-thought side of Wattpad. The side of Wattpad that has 34 fanfics describing the same scene in different words.

    Of course, I do acknowledge that characters are interpreted by different people in different ways. However, certain aspects of the character shouldn’t be pulled away. For example, Lucy’s hesitance to share. The entire constant enigma surrounding Lockwood. George’s adorable love of the “why?” of it all and the science (and how he knows both Lucy and Lockwood better than they know themselves).

    I personally can’t see Lucy or Lockwood crying to each other in the middle of the night about a bad dream (which in most fics that I’ve ended up reading, is a dream about one losing the other; perhaps I need to dig deeper, but that is all I’ve found on that trope). Discussing? Sure. Sitting together? Sure. Once their relationship progresses, being more vulnerable? Absolutely. But I can never imagine them the way that these pieces do.

    To each their own.

  • Lockwood and Co Revelation (AKA me being an idiot)

    I always thought it was funny that in the Screaming staircase Barnes thought Lockwood and George were corrupting Lucy. If anything they were corrupting each other.

    But then I thought about Jacobs. The supervisor who stood by while Lucy tried to save her team. An event that causes her to doubt the system. Upset her enough to leave her home town and head to London.

    Cue Lockwood and Co. The upstart agency going against the status quo. It’s ingrained that adults are still in charge even when they have no clue what they’re doing. But here is a couple of kids running a business and saving lives with no grown ups in the vicinity.

    So when Lockwood asks during the interview is that going to be a problem, it changes her world view.

    Adults don’t have to be in charge. They can call the shots and since they can actually see or hear ghosts, there is less risk of dying.

    Jacobs was the push Lucy needed to join Lockwood and Co. She was already corrupted. She just needed to find others like her feed up with the system.

    J K Rowling had one good take and it was making the rival character have a crying mental breakdown.
