whenever I feel bad about having a weird name I remind myself that C.S. Lewis’ middle name was Staples
When I was a kid, one of my family members quoted the first line of Dawn Treader—"There was a boy named Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it"—and I said, "Brave words from a man whose name was Clive Staples Lewis," and my mom lost it.
Coraline is a masterfully made film, an amazing piece of art that i would never ever ever show to a child oh my god are you kidding me
Nothing wrong with a good dose of sheer terror at a young age
"It was a story, I learned when people began to read it, that children experienced as an adventure, but which gave adults nightmares. It’s the strangest book I’ve written"
-Neil Gaiman on Coraline
That sums it up. Reading it as a kid it was a fun, slightly creepy story. Reading it as an adult was terrifying.
