IN CASTLE CALADAN BORN AND RAISED

ON ARRAKIS IS WHERE I SPENT MOST OF MY DAYS

TRAINING IN COMBAT AND PRESCIENT ALL COOL

MY MOM WAS A GRAD OF THE BENE G SCHOOL

THEN A COUPLE OF HARKONNENS THEY WERE UP TO NO GOOD

STARTED MAKIN TROUBLE IN MY DAD’S NEW HOOD

I STARTED ONE LITTLE JIHAD AND MY MOM GOT SCARED

BUT NOW I’M THE EMPEROR OF THE UNIVERSE, SO THERE.


From here
goddamnemperor: (No guilt or innocence in you)
All of these are in the .epub format.

Dune - Everyone plots, people die, Paul wants to be in a different story.
Dune Messiah - People still plot and die, Paul is in raburabu with Chani forever and ever.
Children of Dune - People still plot and die, Leto decides he's gonna fix the human race if it's the last thing he does (it is)
God Emperor of Dune - Less plotting, less death! Leto is the Emperor and everyone hates him. 
Heretics of Dune - Somethingsomething years after Leto's death, the Empire is in chaos and everyone gets sexy.
Chapterhouse Dune - The Clone Wars.

To quote a pimp post on tumblr: "You’ve got politics, religion, warfare, messiah figures, culture clashes, giant sandworms, drugs, crazy ninja shit IN THE DESERT, ecology, environmentalism, empires, you name it, it’s there." I would totally recommend the first three books. Dune is the least craziest one and God Emperor of Dune is great, but you should have a lot of tissues. Heretic of Dune + Chapterhouse Dune have new characters, but they are AWESOME characters (LIKE THE MOTHERFUCKING MILES TEG), so I would say read those too.

I hear the wind blowing across the desert and I see the moons of a winter night rising like great ships in the void. To them I make my vow: I will be resolute and make an art of government; I will balance my inherited past and become a perfect storehouse of my relic memories. And I will be known for kindliness more than for knowledge. My face will shine down the corridors of time for as long as humans exist.

[ in an empty cabin, the god emperor meditates ]
goddamnemperor: (Al hudad alman dali)
Jessica: And what are you Leto?
Leto: Why don't you tell me? That's why you're here isn't it?
Jessica:  ... You remind me of your father.
Leto: And my grandfather. My namesake. Your beloved Duke. Such admission would be complicated. We may have to enter a realm of intimacies that would leave us both ... uncomfortable.

AKA GRANDMOTHER IF YOU ADMIT I'M LIKE MY GRANDFATHER WE MAY HAVE TO HAVE SEX AND WOULDN'T THAT BE WEIRD.

s-sob I play the smartest dumbest person ever.
