Sophie+Howl*ehem*Twinkle doodles by vanipy05 Sophie+Howl*ehem*Twinkle doodles by vanipy05
I have this super strong love for the book of Howl's moving castle. I even like it better than the movie, although i'm not saying that the book is better, because both the movie and the book are wonderful in its own way. but i just like the book much more.

After rereading the book twice in two weeks, i decided to pick up on one of its sequels, House of many ways.
I loved the parts where the old characters show up, srsly. and Howl never fails to make me laugh. He turned himself into this little adorable boy with a lisp and named himself Twinkle (for some reason) because he wanted to help sophie and have his second childhood.

And sophie is just really annoyed at Howl the whole time :XD:

So anyways, this is how I imagine Twinkle to look like, according to the description. (and also influenced by the anime movie of the book *HMC*. I saw the movie first, so i can't imagine howl looking like anyone else but the anime one. it's fine though.)
And Sophie. Ive seen a lot of interpretations of how Sophie looks like. Most of them has Sophie with super duper long hair and awesome bangs. well, personally, I don't really think Sophie would look like that. She's the eldest of three and in the land they're in...i don't think so. or atleast I do. eh.

bottom line. I love these characters.

calcifer too.

oh yeah, to those who have read all three Howl books, should I read Castle in the air too? Is it worth buying? (I like reading books than in the internet) :|
is it too aladdin-y? or is that good? ugh.

comments are appreciated! :heart:

OH MAN this is a reply two years after you made this - but if you HAVEN'T yet, then yes, PLEASE do read Castle in the Air. The Sophie and Howl moments in that one are sooooo nice ;u;

But yes oh gosh. I LOVE how much anger and bickering was between them in the house of many ways... :XD: Sophie is so fed up with you, Howl.

Also your twinkle is pretty much exactly what I imagined too ^_^

Castle is just as good, or perhaps even slightly better than Howl's. House is by far the weakest and rather disappointed me.

I agree. I completely do.

Howl and Sophie were the only ones who kept me reading honestly. Charmaine was perhaps a little annoying as a character. I think the reason for that probably is the large gap between castle. Dianna Wynne Jones probably lost the true feel of the book after not writing one after years.
