Arthur Conan Doyle: Trying to see how little fucks he can give about a series of books before people start to notice.
If I was a famous author I would publish a book with ten different endings which all went to print with varying degrees of rarity, but not tell the fans about it so that I could watch their confusion as they disagree over how the story ended. Then when they figured it out I would ‘come clean’, telling them that I had released eleven alternate endings and watch them panic again as they all try to find the last ending.
This is perfect.

CRIES ABOUT THIS FOR ALL ETERNITY
I finished reading The Great Gatsby this morning and I really enjoyed it. But it made me think about how if I had read it in high school and been forced to tear the symbolism to pieces, I would probably hate it right now.
So, thank you, all of my high school English teachers, for never making me read basically any classic literature. You have freed me to enjoy it as an adult, rather than hate it as a youth.2 notes
