So, the “worst book you had to read for school” thread makes me sad, since there’s so many books I love in the list.

So, do people want to play with me and say their favorite book they had to read for school?

Antigone by Jean Annouilh

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.

Henry IV part 1.

Macbeth

Robert Browning, Men and Women

The Tempest.

Hamlet

William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying

I actually really loved Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea

bless me, ultima by rudolfo anaya

Oh my gosh someone else said old man and the seaaaaaaa

The Martian Chronicles, Ray Bradbury

or East of Eden, John Steinbeck, I can’t choose

Life of Pi by Yann Martel

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

Hamlet by William Shakespeare (literally this story is HILARIOUS)

Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko. I had to read that for college. 

A Tale of Two Cities

Jane Eyre

Dang it, I was gonna say A Tale of Two Cities. Umm… well, in that case, I’ll have to go with Sister Outsider.

Really hard to pick but one was Bridge to Terabithia.

I actually liked Catcher in the Rye.

The Devine Comedy

The Crucible

or maybe A Man for All Seasons

and it’s not a book but A Rose For Emily changed my world when i was 12

The Awakening and Great Expectations

Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky and Jane Eyre.

I was a budding nihilist by grade 11.

Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe.

Ugh… There are too many!

Pride and Prejudice and Wuthering Heights

A Tale of Two Cities, obviously. But since that’s been said I’ll go with Death in Venice.

I’m still emotionally wrecked from the first time I read “The Cold Equations.”  But that’s a short story.  Book? To Kill a Mockingbird. 

And Then There Were None

Wuthering Heights and The Outsiders

The Kite Runner and Lord of the Flies

To Kill A Mockingbird and Fahrenheit 451

I am happy to see things like The Outsiders and Bridge to Terabithia. Really surprised I don’t see The Giver on this list though.

The Giver or Alas, Babylon 

Enders game!

1984

Of Human Bondage is high up there….I really should re-read that.

Neuromancer by William Gibson

Life After Life by Kate Atkinson

look you guys. i dunno what the hell kinda history books youve been reading about pre-serum steve, but ‘poor sick’ steve was pretty much the literal devil.

i am not joking. he was pretty much the definition of ‘lead you right into temptation’ if you assume that what youre being tempted to do is get in so many fistfights. 

so. many. i coulda really used a sickass robot arm back in the day, because my goodness did i do a lotta punching.

anyway, sick steve went through four stages, like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, except he turned from a tiny angry man with the ability to breathe into a tiny angry man with the ability to pass out with zero warning. stage one was called ‘Im Not Sick, I Always Breathe Like This,’ and did indeed involve steve wheezing a lot. usually that was the first sign. but tiny steve had asthma, so sometimes he really did just breathe like that. at this stage, steve would insist that he was ‘fine, bucky, honestly stop glaring at my lungs. you cant even see them.’

the second stage was called ‘So Maybe I Might Be Sick But Im Still Fine Though,’ and pretty much came into play when steve stopped being able to get a whole word out without gasping in the middle. fun fact? steve’s eyebrows did not grow when he got the super serum, so if you think his angry face is bad now, just imagine allll that scowl packed into steve’s itty bitty please-punch-me starter face.

stage three was ‘If Im Dying Im Gonna Go Out The Way I Came In, Screaming And Covered In Blood’ which was the stage where steve, despite the fact that he was supposed to be in bed, would try to sneak out and go do things. this wouldnt be so bad if 1. he wasnt prone to just suddenly passing out when he was sick, or 2. had had any control at all over what came out of his mouth. that thing steve does where if youre doing something he objects to morally, he will 100% of the time come over and inform you that you should be expecting a punch in the near future? yeah. tiny steve did that too. luckily his brain-to-mouth filter was improved by the serum, or im pretty sure he’d have started fights with a lot more than 117 countries and literally every nazi ever. Anyways, he’d try and sneak out, and if he succeeded, he would almost always wind up picking a fight with somebody, because having bad luck and terrible impulse control is what steve do.

the final stage was called ‘Bucky I Promise I Wont Do Anything Stupid, Please Stop Sitting On Me,’ and it was the point at which i started ignoring everything he said until he could say a whole sentence in one breath.

21st Century AU fic where the founding fathers write the Declaration of Independence using Google Docs

“You guys! Stop deleting everything I write!”

“Unalienable!”
“Inalienable!”

I’M LAUGHING LIKE A MANIAC

“SO HELP ME I WILL LOCK THIS DOCUMENT IF YOU DON"T STOP CHANGING THE FONT SIZE JOHN HANCOCK!!!”

“STOP HIGHLIGHTING EVERYTHING!”
“WHO DELETED THE ENTIRE FUCKING DOCUMENT!”

“FOR THE LAST TIME, WE ARE NOT DECLARING OUR INDEPENDENCE IN COMIC SANS”

“GOUVERNUER MORRIS WILL YOU PLEASE STOP ADDING ‘IN BED’ AFTER EVERY LINE”

ladyhistory

“why is the red line under Pensylvania”

“bc that’s not how it’s spelled alexander”

“I am like, 100% positive I spelled it right”

“Pennsylvania has two n’s”

“No???”

“Franklin, stop putting in clipart of a Turkey.”
“Jefferson, Hamilton, quit deleting each other’s stuff or so help me I will turn his document around.”
