Picture books!

Post  Amanda Cozens on Wed Sep 14, 2011 5:48 pm

Amanda stepped into the library cautiously, just to be sure she wasn't disturbing anybody. She walked over to one of the shelves and started looking through the books. Picking up the colourful ones only to find there were no pictures. Not that she had trouble reading, just didn't have the patience to deal with words. After a while she sighed and took a blue and pink book from a shelf and sat down, opened it to a random page and stared at the page, blissfully unaware the book was upside down.

Amanda sighed from the boredom yet didn't take her eyes of the page, almost as though there was something of grave important on that page that needed to be uncovered. However there wasn't...It was a book with a colourful cover Amanda didn't even know the title of.

Raye sauntered through the library doors yaoi manga in hand, intent on sitting and reading in peace.

What she wasn't expecting was to walk in on a girl - Amanda, if her memory served her correctly - reading a book...upside down. Huh, normal...

"Hi. Interesting book?" she called to the girl sarcastically.

Amanda thought that the voice was directed at someone else for a moment. She looked up just to check and then realized the question had been for her. Amanda gave a quiet squeak and hid her face behind the book again for a moment before re-emerging.

"H-hello...The book is rather...Interesting. I-it's about art" Amanda murmured quietly before closing the book and realizing that it was on in fact about homosexuality. She blushed and ran to put the book back, not wanting to give Raye the wrong idea. She tripped over on air and just about managed to stop herself from falling face first into the bookshelf. She hastily put the book in a random place and walked back to Raye, still blushing.

"W-well I was about finished with it anyway." She laughed awkwardly "S-so, what is your book about, anything interesting?" She asked trying to change the subject.

Raye gave a booming laugh when she caught sight of the title of the book and the big fuss Amanda made when she realised what the book was about.

"Oh, it's quite similar to your art," she replied with a twinkle in her eyes.

Amanda tilted her head to see the cover of Raye's book. It took a moment for her to figure out what she was seeing.

"Those two boys. They're not wearing any-" 'Surprised' as Amanda was to see this but then remembered Rayes comment "Wait you have it all wrong! I wasn't, I mean to say I'm not, I-I-I" Amanda burst out in a frustrated jumble, blushing even harder. She took a deep breath "I'm sorry" she muttered, not entirely sure what she was apologizing for. "It's just...I can't focus on words I prefer pictures...But I couldn't find any books with pictures..."

Raye laughed, enjoying the girls squirming. "I'm inclined to agree. I prefer my comic books to novels. Novels can get so boring."

Amanda wasn't really sure what the laughing was about, but chose to not join in.

"Really? Do you have any interesting comics?" Amanda asked forgetting entirely about the yaoi in Rayes hand

Amanda's face lit up as she took the book offered to her.

"T-thank you very much" Amanda said excitedly and opened the book and began to read. "This seems interesting already!" Amanda commented.

A few pages later her face began to drop

"W-what are they doing?" She asked pointing at the two boys kissing.

She turned the page before waiting for an answer, after seeing the contents of the pages following she began to let out a quiet scream then stopped herself and pushed the book away blushing furiously.

"O-o-on second thought I don't think I like this style of drawing." Amanda muttered, scarred by what she had just seen.

The girl before her seemed to be dying from the laughter. Apparently she knew Amanda would act this way.

"S-s-so y-you read this type of thing...Much?" Amanda asked slightly scared

She was sober now... to some extent. She was able to stand back to full height but she was grinning like she was mad and the occasional chuckle escaped her lips. "I wouldn't read it if I didn't enjoy it."

"That's nice" Amanda replied deciding she'd not let it show that it bugged her when a thought occurred "Y-your not thinking of doing something like that with anyone here?" Her eyes widened once more in fear for herself.

Post  Hryshen on Sun Sep 25, 2011 3:04 pm

Hryshen felt like going to the library again. It had been awhile and the last time she was there she hadn't finished reading the books she had picked out. She strode inside with a light mood. She looked around and noticed two girls conversing. She didn't recognize either, having never met them nor have them in her class. She thought of confronting them but wasn't sure if they'd want to be interrupted so she went to a bookcase near them and skimmed the titles of books there.

I hope you don't mind my joining. I thought it'd be nice to meet Raye and Amanda sometime and it seemed like a nice topic to join. If you do mind I can always delete this

Amanda noticed the new person walk in, she ran to her, she looked...Safer than Raye.

"Hi, n-nice to m-meet you. My name's A-amanda" She murmured slightly louder than normal.

Raye strolled behind Amanda casually, slipping her yaoi book in her overlarge jacket pocket. She gave the newcomer a casual wave of her hand. "Hey. I'm Raye-Majick."

The Jinn was curious about the newcomer. She had met quite a few interesting people here at AALC and she was more than willing to meet more.

((Hakuna matata. Join the party~ I love meeting new people here - thye're all so interesting))

Hryshen blinked then smiled, she was somewhat surprised by the blonde girl's sudden rush to her. "Why hello. Amanda? That's a nice name." She waited a moment as the other girl introduced herself. "Very nice to meet you both. I'm Hryshen." She bowed slightly. "What might you two be here for?" She asked the question more for what type of books, she hoped they didn't retort that they were here for something other than books. She knew that 'joke' to well, and found it unamusing by now. She looked over the books she had been skimming over, her finger resting on a leather-bound book about contraptions made in the 1600s to 1800s.

"It's nice to meet you too!" Amanda smiled Someone less scary. "I was just in here looking for a book with lot's of pictures...Then Raye came in and introduced me to a new kind of...Art." Amanda blushed "A-anyway, how about you? What bring you to the library?"

"I came in here for some quiet so I could read my...art." Her lip twitched as she said it.

She leaned against the bookcase directly to her right with her hip, crossing her arms over her chest. With a slight yawn, her ears, tail and red eyes appeared. They usually did when she was tired. And reliving the death of people close to her almost every night didnt allow for much restful sleep.

The tail swayed behind her slowly and her one ear perked up, the other drooping close to her blue hair.

"But I found Amanda and thought it the best time to introduce her to some good manga." A roguish grin overtook her features. "Ne, Manda-chan~?"

"Art?" Hryshen's face lit up at the word. "I always did love art. Which artist are you looking into? Pablo Picasso? Or could it be Rembrandt? I'm partial to Greek art myself. I even love their statues...though I focus most on the faces than anything else..." Hryshen smiled, at the two girls, excited to hear what artist they liked.

She blinked at Amanda's question. "O...Oh yeah." She slid the book her fingers had kept watch over. "I came to look at the inventions of the past...I'm horrible with machines and so I thought I'd read up on it.... I bet...if you'd like to read it too, there are quite a few pictures of the older machines.. Like sketchs from Da Vinci's notebooks or the Wright Brother's original plane design."

Hryshen looked at Raye. The ears and tail didn't surprise her, having been used to the strange fish of the deep. She had even comforted a dying two-headed fish. Just goes to show, radiation does kill. She raised her eyebrow. "Manga? What kind of book is that?"

Amanda looked down in slight guilt of calling it 'art' and pulling Hryshen into it. "Uhm, well...It's all so pretty I can't pick a favourite artist or style, all of it is just so magical and inspiring you know?" Amanda smiled

"Oh that sounds really really interesting!" Amanda's face lit up, no idea what it was about, but hey it sounded interesting.

Amanda went silent as Hryshen mentioned Raye's manga.
