A big thank you to Charvi @Not Just Fiction for this idea! 

Exhibit A

Literally Anyone: Oh my gosh! Look how green the grass is.

Me: Mm-hmm. So green. Beautiful isn’t it?

LA: So beautiful. Nature is ju—

Me: You know what else is beautiful and green?

LA: Ohhh, what?

Me:  (Book Boyfriend)’s eyes are so beautifully green.

LA: Who’s that?

Me: OH MY GOSH! I’M SO GLAD YOU ASKED. SO THERE’S THIS BOOK…

And then the wolves came.

 

Exhibit B

No one ever:…….

Me: What’s that?

NoE: I didn’t say anything.

Me: I’m sure I heard you say (book that I want to talk about’s name).

NoE: I don’t even know what that means.

Me: *gasps* Oh my God, are you serious? How can you not know?

NoE: Why, what is it?

Me: Oh my God. Let me tell you I’m about to change your life forever.

And then there was light.

 

Exhibit C

Poor Innocent Victim: I’m hungry.

Me: I’m always hungry.

PIV: Ugh, I know right? Why does this always happen?

Me: Ugh. I know right.

*Four seconds of silence.*

Me: You know what else always happens?

PIV: What?

Me: Cliffhangers.

PIV: What?

Me: Let me explain.

And the rest was history.

Me: I LOVE TO READ.

Anybody: Oh. Okay, I—

Me: Guess what my favourite read of the year is!

Anybody: Um, Ahana, that’s ou—

Me: Buh-buh! Wrong guess! My favourite read is (favourite read’s name)!

Anybody: Oh that’s so—

Me: Ask me why it’s my favourite read!

Anybody: AHANA WE’VE MISSED OUR—

Me: It’s because the plot, character arc, the—

Anybody: —STOP.

Me: —ideology behind what the author is trying to convey is hidden so beautifully within the layers of the writing even though technically it’s fantasy…

And so on and so forth.
