• i begin typing on an old typewriter, "a werewolf is
steering a submarine" but then stop. i crunch up the
paper and throw it in the fire. the world isn't ready yet
for Captain Harry McHowls, the submarine pilot who is
secretly a werewolf hiding from the moon

The world would be so much better if people
would just unironically write stuff like this. I'm
tired of books that Take Themselves Seriously

    • The best books are the ones that start off silly and make it all serious in the end. Red Vs Blue is an example of that kind of story, or HLVRAI. They're not books, but great examples of that type of story

    • Okay, setting world war 2 the captain of a sub is a wear wolf hiding from the moon while still serving his country. But when the sub is running on the surface using it engines to recharge the batteries it gets hit and the abandon ship order is given. Most men make it out but not all.

    • For me a book is all about immersing yourself, that's why fanfiction sucks, it doesn't build an atmosphere, it just tells you only exactly what you need to know in a story and there isn't a bunch of small details that you get to imagine what is happening, if an author doesn't take his book 1/2

    • Bullshit. All books like this would bomb, because all you fucks who say you would like these books never even leave home enough to know about them. There are books just as rediculous as this out right now. But instead of looking for them you are on the internet making up bullshit and complaining
