Alexander Skarsgård Makes GQ Hot!!

Alexander Skarsgård is the June GQ Cover, looking at pictures of him makes me feel like a giggly high school girl all over again. He’s just beautiful.

Yeah, you’re welcome and he’s mine.  Now of course I have to run out and get a copy of GQ.

Screw Bella

They really are so much better off with each other. Bella is one of the most annoying protagonists in the entire genre.  I have never been able to figure out what either Jacob or Edward see in her unless having no real personality truly is a turn on.

Ok, y’know what I find REALLY funny? When straight people joke about the weddings gay people can’t actually have! It’s really HYSTERICALLY funny. Really I can’t wait for Isabelle’s encore – hate crimes, how to giggle at them!

Of course we don’t know whether Shadowhunter society would ever accept such a wedding – because though it is so grossly homophobic that Alec lives in terror of being found out, that’s only actually the case when it’s a plot device for Cassandra Clare. Otherwise it can go away. So maybe Isabelle can find the homophobia off-switch for her society – depending on whether it’s useful for the plot or not. Hmmm homophobia or no homophobia, what would be more interesting?
