Hanna you crap thing it is past your bedtime and you’re not supposed to be on tumblr and you know this behavior is bad for you and julie would be so disappointed and so would your parents. just go the fuck to sleep and stop moping.
But being able to discuss and learn is wonderful. And not agreeing doesn’t make people less like friends necessarily. It depends on what and how the disagreeing happens, I suppose. But maybe you can even learn about your own beliefs through others’?
Yeah, I’m not worried about getting in arguments with people, I’m just scared of the distance that it creates when we lack something really important in common.

Lake Geneva Slumber Party: FRANKENSTEIN READALONG
Also, getting its own PSA:
I’m going to start reading/posting about Frankenstein (ETA: the edited version from 1831!) in September! Specifically, Monday, September 1st. Since this is a shorter book with longer chapters than those in past groupreads ( and SO MUCH to discuss!), I’m going to be covering just 2 chapters a week, with discussion open for the week’s chapters running from that Monday to that Sunday. I know a lot of people who said they want to participate have school starting soon, so that’ll hopefully give everyone enough time to post!
Otherwise, it’ll run like the other readalongs we’ve had- post your comments about the week’s reading, reply to other people, and use the tag— in this case, it’s “Lake Geneva Slumber Party”, as I try to get us a unique tag apart from other potential readalong groups, but I’ll also be tracking the tag “Frankenstein Readalong” for a while!
Current schedule for September is:
Sept 1-7: Letters (the letters are LONG, okay)
Sept 8-14: Ch. 1&2Sept 15-21: Ch 3&4
Sept 22-28: Ch. 5&6
and then we’ll see how it’s going, but I’m hoping this schedule works!
Text online all OVER the place, but here’s good ol’ Gutenberg
There is SO MUCH to talk about with this book, I’m incredibly excited and I’m going to be nerding out SO MUCH. See everyone then!
AHHHHHHHHHHHH I AM SO EXCITED TO HEAR WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS.
And I apologize in advance for my lack of contribution. THANK YOU FOR PUTTING ALL THIS TOGETHER. AND FOR DOING YOUR HOMEWORK AND HAVING SMART THOUGHTS TO SHARE BECAUSE I LOVE READING YOUR SMART THOUGHTS.
