reading alex rider (and subsequently, well written alex rider fanfic) always makes me feel like my life isnt exciting enough
which is hilarious because the whole point of alex rider seems to be DO NOT DO THE SPY THING DO NOT IT IS SAD AND PAINFUL AND MAKES YOU LONELY BECAUSE IF YOURE NOT EVERYONE YOU KNOW AND LOVE WILL FUCKING DIE
DO NOT DO THE FUCKING THING
100% the best thing about them is Alex’s face. The sisters who did the first four books definitely had an interesting way of portraying him
Every single expression can be broken up into these categories-
WTF is happening to your face, kid?
Also, while re-reading the second I came across a panel that I remember being very amused by in the past. So many different things come together to make it look like the most amazingly inappropriate thing ever if you don’t understand what’s actually going on.
I ended up still in that kind of frame of mind when I read Eagle Strike, and oh boy… There’s just soooo many bits that look incredibly and amusingly inappropriate out of context. I ended up laughing out loud at some of them at about 2AM.
If only my phone would connect to my laptop…then I could show what I mean.
SOMEONE PLEASE PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY I’M HAVING FEELINGS HELP I’VE BEEN SUCKER PUNCHED IN THE CHILDHOOD I NEED MORE BOOKS
I HATE HAVING FEELINGS I CAN’T KILL I HAVE NEVER HAD FEELINGS I COULDN’T KILL
I’m literally crying it was so good oh my god that was just amazing
