Fiction Files Friday| Welcome To…The Fiction Files

The News

So, Loretta (@LaughingListener) and I have some exciting news! We created a new brand – The Fiction Files. It all started when we jokingly began sending each other fake profile blurbs for our favorite characters one night and were digitally rolling on the floor laughing together. We had an epiphany moment where we both (on different sides of the country) stared into the darkness and a lightbulb turned on – “what if other people might get a kick out of them too.” Thus, the idea for Fiction Files was born.

If you’re into things like, let’s say, fictional character Tinder accounts, Spotify playlists, and generally anything a character would have or do if they were actually real people (like we just assume they are) come join us! We’ll be on our blogs every Friday with news, but you can follow our pages – links are below.

We hope you have as much fun with our content as we have creating it. We’re obviously too invested in our book boyfriends and it shows, but hey – we’re owning it.giphy

Here are links to all our accounts. Come hang with us – we love making new bookish friends!

And as a sneak peek into what’s to come, here’s our first post – a tribute to everyone’s second favorite (Ronan FTW) Raven Boy!

IF YOU ARE: In need of a rich, adorable cinnamon roll who obsesses over dead kings and spiritually wounded friends. Vintage cars a plus, but not necessary. Glasses are a bonus. Must smell of mint.

How excited are you for more Fiction Files? Any fandoms you want to see us bring to life? Let me know in the comments!

Richard Gansey III | A Raven Cycle Playlist

If you haven’t read The Raven Cycle series you should drop what you’re doing and start now. Maggie Stiefvater shares so many fun, little details about her world and characters and it was so easy to fall head over heels with all the Aglionby Boys and their rich-boy problems. It’s why I had so much fun making playlists for all of them!

Gansey’s was one of the easier ones to make. He’s the leader of the crew, with an old soul, a wandering spirit, and a desire to help his friends. He reminds me of a less intense version of Indiana Jones, who thinks everything belongs in a museum, has trouble sleeping, and enjoys listening to oldies.

“He’d jotted enigmatic notes to himself all along the margin of it. Some of them were coordinates. Some of them were explanations of topography. Some of them were Beatles lyrics.” – Maggie Stiefvater, The Dream Thieves

The Breakdown

Here are a few of my faves and why they made the list.

The Wanderer, Dion

Gansey always talks about never wanting to stay too long in one place. He likes to travel and wander the world looking for hidden things and magical kings.

Notable Lyrics: “They call me the wanderer. Yeah, the wanderer. I roam around, around, around.”

I Want to Hold Your Hand, The Beatles

If this isn’t a Blue & Gansey song, I don’t know what is. She can’t kiss her true love or else he dies…he thinks he’s her true love…she thinks he’s her true love…we all think they’re each other’s true love! Thus, no further explanation is needed.

Notable Lyrics: “I want to hold your hand…”

Stand By Me, Ben E. King

All he wants is for his friends to love him as fiercely as he loves them. To stick around when things get tough and to do things together. Everyone just needs to find themselves a Gansey, boat shoes and all.

Notable Lyrics: “Whenever you’re in trouble won’t you stand by me.”

What did you think of my picks? What songs would you add? Do you have any playlists you’d want me to create?
