    Summary

    A re-post of a bit of meta I wrote on Tumblr about whether Simon is stupid (he isn't) or a himbo (debatable! I sort of wish I'd used another term for the title. But - this is what the post was called.)

    I've included links to responses other people wrote off the back of my piece at the end, including several discussions about how Simon being lower-class affects the way people view him.

    Please let me know if you'd like the link removed.

    Summary

    I had no other choice.

    Simon and Basil have been at each other’s throats since they were eleven years old and, frankly, it’s completely childish.

    I understand that they’ve both been conditioned for this behavior, what with the impending War talk and all. But honestly, the hostility is tiring. Simon’s obsession with Basil is exhausting. I’ve had to give him a limit to how much he can bring him — and he never follows it! I don’t mind Simon griping to me, but if I have to hear his list of signs that Basil’s a vampire one more time I might turn myself over to the vampires.

    Summary

    Simon Snow is laying on the floor of an apple orchard.

    This was Bunce’s latest idea to get us all out of the flat. We’ve both been trying to pull Snow out as much as we can. After dropping out of his courses he spent the entire summer on the couch with a hard cider in hand. He’s been so…

    Well, it’s not as if I could blame him. His final year at Watford and he lost his mentor, his magic, and his sense of purpose in one fell swoop. He was doing alright for a bit, after. When he was seeing someone; a lovely woman, according to him, that let him talk and talk about everything he’d tried to not think about. She must not have been too lovely, he stopped going to his appointments after a while. He never told me why.

    He hardly tells me anything.

    We’re still together. He’s not broken up with me, at least, and sometimes he’ll hold my hand when we’re in line at the market. I think he finds a sense of comfort from it, needs something to ground him when we’re around all those people. All those Normals. I don’t know what’s going on in his head, but it can’t be easy to cope with.
