Character Conversations: Queen Kako

Character Conversations

Hello dear bloggers! I am sad to say, but today is my last character conversation for a little while now. *sniff* But don’t worry! I’ll have plenty of other posts and such up. And when I’m ready, I’ll definitely be posting more CC posts again.😉

Queen Kako of Nanova

Sweet

Still beautiful

Is afraid of Snow White

Giving and generous

Can travel through mirrors

~

Me: Hello, your Highness.

Queen Kako: Oh, just call me Kako, please.

M: Alright, Kako, thank you for allowing me to interview you today! To start off, tell me a bit about your family.

K: Well, I live with my Mom and my brother, O, in a giant castle. Mom is nice, she cares for me. Almost to much. She plans everything out for me. She does the same to O…

M: It seems that your mother is a bit…pushy. Bossy? I can’t quite find the right word.

K: *sighs* Yes, she is both pushy and bossy. But I can’t complain. She keeps us safe.

M: I heard from your brother that you enjoy painting. He says you’re up in your room all day. Is that true?

K: Yeah. It’s kind of my escape from all the trauma of the royal life. But sometimes, I’ll spy on people through the mirrors. That way, I know what’s going on without ever having left my room!

M: …Explain?

K: Well, I can travel around through the mirrors and reflections. My Mom has a giant mirror in the throne room and O has one in his room too. Plus there are many more scattered all over the castle.

M: Sounds fascinating. Does that also mean…?

K: Oh yes, I can be in different places at simultaneously. Of course, there needs to be light and reflection around in order to do that.

M: What else do you do around the castle? When you’re not up in your room?

K: We have a big art gallery on the east side. I love wandering around in there. Someday, I hope to have a painting hung in there. Not just a picture of me. *makes a face*

M: *laughs, then pauses* You seem…I don’t know how to put it…lonely?

K: *looks away* I…I try to hide it. I can’t let Mom see or she’ll force me to another party. She knows I don’t like them. It’s a kind of punishment.

M: You have O though, don’t you?

K: He’s been acting strange lately…ever since his journey to Woodcrest Wood. He seems…off.

M: I’m…sorry to hear that. I hope you get that sorted out soon. *mumbles* It may take a while, but…

K: Did you say something?

M: Oh, no, I just talk to myself sometimes is all. So, I’ll leave you with some parting questions. What is your favorite food?

K: Poached quail eggs with red sauce.

M: Sounds…tasty. Do you like music?

K: Yes, I love music. The few times I actually want to go out are when we go to the symphony. So beautiful…

M: Can you sing?

K: *laughs* Only when I want to upset anyone nearby.

M: *smiles* Thank you Kako. It’s been a pleasure.

K: The pleasure is all mine.

There you go! She’s a really sweet character, but terribly shy sometimes… Thank you so much for reading! And if you’ve been following these posts, I thank you too for all your likes and comments! This has been such a fun segment, and I can’t wait to share more characters someday soon!

Until next time!❤

 

Character Conversations: Prince O

Character Conversations

Hello bloggers! Today’s interview is with a very generic character…Or is he?

~

a-wandering-minstrel:    The prince by  Yuze Bai:

The Prince of a Fairytale (take your pick of which one!)

Brave

Handsome

Usually saves the damsel in distress

Sometimes arrogant

Usually boring, if we’re being honest

Prince O:

Prince O of Nanova

Still brave and handsome

Bored of his life

Arrogant and challenging

But deep down, sweet

Anything but boring

~

Me: Welcome, Prince O!

Prince O: Thank you fair lady! I am pleased to meet you. *smiles flashing grin*

M: To get down to business, who exactly are you? And can I call you O?

O: *hesitates* I am crown Prince Olistair Oleander Octavious Oakenragemanrivergaze. The III. And yes, just call me O.

M: *bursts out laughing* I couldn’t quite catch that last name…*pants* Could you repeat it?

O: *rolls eyes* Hilarious. And no. Moving on?

M: *wipes tear* Okay, so. You’re royalty, right? So what’s it like?

O: *sighs* Horrible. Mother makes me wear these ridiculous outfits and pushes me to attend all these balls and parties and…Ugh!

M: Well…you are the most eligible man in all of Paramythi.

O: Oh really! Poppycock. The princes of Nell and Omorfia and Gorgona…All of them are just as fine as me!

M: *shrugs* Well, you kind of are… The prince.

O: Just because I rescued a girl from a poisoned apple doesn’t make me a better hero. And I won’t lie, she was super cute…

M: So if you don’t enjoy all the finery and such, what do you enjoy?

O: I’d much rather go on an adventure with my horse, Haypenny, and meet damsels in distress than attend all those stupid parliamentary meetings and junk. Just the other day, actually, I was thinking about heading over to Prink. I hear Princess Orinthia is more beautiful than they’re letting on…

M: *rolls eyes* You seem kind of…obsessed with all these girls…

O: What’s wrong with a girl or two? It’s not like I’d actually consider marrying them. Mother’s already arranged that.

M: *stares in disgust* Don’t you care?

O: I suppose I care a little…but as long as she’s nice and pretty, I think I’ll manage.

M: *shakes head* Moving on…Do you get along with your family?

O: Oh, well enough I suppose. Kako’s always up in her room, painting away, avoiding everyone. And mother…well…She’s not not unkind.

M: *tries to decipher sentence and gives up* Okay. Do they know of what happened in Woodcrest Wood?

O: *looks choked* Huh?

M: You met a…fairy was it? Of the ruder sort and you with your arrogance somehow made her mad and she cursed you and…

O: Are you trying to make me angry?

M: *eyes widen* No! I was just…saying…

O: No. They don’t. And I don’t plan on telling them. Let’s keep it that way.

M: *gulps* Fine by me. Parting questions now. Can you cook?

O: I’m a prince! I’ve never had the need to learn!

M: *glares* Have you ever been outside of Fanastasia?

O: Not that I remember…the farthest I went was Woodcrest Woods.

M: *looks away* Sorry. Do you dread being first in line for the throne?

O: *shrugs* I’m perfectly fine with it. I don’t look forward to the responsibility, but I’ll be married by then, so I’ll have a wife to help me.

M: Alright, thank you, O, for answering my questions!

O: *smiles* You’re most welcome.

He’s been a really fun character to write! He’s kind of laid-back but still mysterious… What do you think? Thanks for reading! Until next time!❤

Twinepathy // A Review

Books and Such (1)

Hey all! Today, I have a review of Twinepathy by C.B. Cook!🙂

Initial Reaction

.
*flails like a dying seal* I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. But seriously, like, where’s the next book?

“Albany and her twin sister, Brooklyn, have spent years successfully hiding their 26793603telepathic connection. But when a girl falls unconscious at their doorstep, the girls learn that they might not be the only people in the world with extraordinary powers and that a memory thief is on the loose. As the twins try to help the girl find her memories, they discover that the superhero world might be bigger—and more dangerous—than they ever imagined.”

High Lights
– All the action that’s happening! Everything is so well-paced!
– BLAZE. Enough said.
– Denver and Ezra’s relationship. *squeals with delight*
– The suspense! It was killing me the entire. time. *dies*
– Also Maddie’s adorable-ness.❤❤❤
– ANVIL. I NEED MORE OF YOUR BACKSTORY AND STUFF OKAY OKAY.
– The amazing idea! I mean, memory theft? How awesome is that?!
Low Lights
– Virtually none, thought I may be a bit biased…🙂
– Albany did kinda do silly things sometimes, but it all worked out in the end.
– MAKE IT LONGER.😄

Favorite Quotes
“She’s in the middle of something really important. What do I tell her?”
“Tell her she gets to hack into the CIA’s system. She won’t be able to pass that up.”

“I’d prefer silence and random jokes about the passing billboards and scenery, but I know how he likes music. I just hope he doesn’t start singing.”

“Antarctica. You know, that giant continent at the bottom of the earth that’s ruled by penguins and seals.”

“Can you please explain this?”
“That would ruin the suspense.”

Conclusion
C.B. Cook is a really talented author who can really transport you into a story. I actually followed the serial story of Twinepathy on her blog before she was published. I congratulate her on her success of publishing and I can’t wait to read on!

FIVE STARS!

Character Conversations: Fasaria

Character Conversations

Hello all! We’re getting close to the end of my character list for my Imprint series…*sniff* But never fear! I have many more characters from other stories…🙂

~

Aladdin. Jirka Väätäinen Design released this collection of art this morning showing the Disney Princes/Guys in a more real life way.:

Master of the Genie of the Lamp

Kind and generous

Adventurous and brave

Loves the princess

Grants the Genie his freedom

~

Fasaria:

Master of Tizini (or at least used to be…)

Quiet and thoughtful

Accident-prone but can be brave

Doesn’t ‘have time’ to be in love

Lost the genie in a dangerous portal-collapse

~

Me: Hello Fasaria. Would you mind if I interviewed you today?

Fasaria: I suppose not. But it really depends on what kind of questions you’ll be asking.

M: Um…regular ones? What other kind could there be?

F: Deep, intellectual, life-changing questions about the world around us and life in essence. Or small talk.

M: I don’t really know any…life-changing questions…But can I start off by asking you to tell a bit about yourself?

F: I was born in Alldinia as a poor boy. My mom died when I was four and I never knew my father.

M: So…you live alone?

F: I prefer it that way. Alone with my own thoughts and reasoning.

M: …How do you eat? And where do you sleep?

F: *glares* I’m not a punk who wanders the streets begging. I earn my keep by doing odd jobs when they’re asked of me. I can usually find work in the market square, moving crates, displaying fruit or trinkets, and stuff of that sort.

M: Being much of recluse (which I can understand!), how did you stumble upon the lamp?

F: *narrows eyes* How do you know about that?

M: I heard it through the grapevine. So, how?

F: *sighs* I was walking alone down the streets when an old man came up to me and asked if I could help him. I said yes, and he led me to a dark alley that somehow ended up in a cave. It still confuses me…How could I’ve walked right into a cave if I were in the middle of town?

M: Sounds like that man had some form of magic.

F: Ugh, magic…I hate the stuff. Not that it’s above my skill level of understanding. It is after all the most difficult gift to cultivate, and…

M: So how did you find Tizini?

F: In the cave of course. Then the old man trapped me down there with him. But I tricked him and stole the lamp before he could swipe it from me. The barbarian… And that’s when I met Tizini, who is not very nice, if I’m being honest.

M: Oh I know. Trust me. So he must’ve granted your wish, then, right?

F: I’m sitting here aren’t I?

M: You didn’t happen to lose him on purpose…did you?

F: Believe me, I’ve thought about destroying the lamp several times over, just so he would shut up about his ‘horrible circumstances’. But no. Losing him was an accident.

M: Huh…Well, thank you. I’m going to ask a few parting questions now. Do you like cats?

F: What kind of ridiculous question is that? And no, I hate them in fact. They’re always hissing from inside abandoned alleyways, and-

M: Were you born with any type of gift, such as magic?

F: Yes. The one thing I remember my mom telling me was how I had an incredible capacity of intellect.

M: Which is…?

F: *rolls eyes* Worlder…It has to do with the mind. I chose never to develop it very much though, only choosing a few skills to practice.

M: Okay…last question. *smiles* Do you enjoy inventing?

F: Oh, I love it! I’m working on a steam-powered hot-air balloon right now. Well, I’ve written the plans, but I don’t actually have any of the parts to build it yet, but I’m going to-

M: Alright, thank you Fasaria, for answering my questions!

~

Well…he’s quite a talker for a ‘recluse’…😉 I hope you enjoyed! Until next time!❤

Character Conversation: Pyrallis

Character Conversations

Hey all! It’s a little late, but here’s another convo with a very curious character of mine…

~

Robin Hood on a rock photo RobinHoodonarock.jpg:

Robin Hood

Robs from the rich and gives to the poor

Generous and thoughtful

Skilled in archery

Loves Maid Marian

Travels with his Merry Men

~

Pyrallis:

Still gives whatever he can to the poor

Bubbly and outgoing

Skilled in archery as well as hand-to-hand combat

Loves no one (yet🙂 )

More of a loner

~

Me: Hello, Pyrallis!

Pyrallis: Hey! How you doing?

Me: Good, thank you. So, I’m here to interview you today. Tell me a little bit about yourself.

P: Oh, let’s see…hmm…I live alone in the woods. *shrugs* Well, I guess not entirely alone. My mom comes to see me every now and again. Other than that though, I work alone.

M: Sorry to interrupt, but you said you work. I…I know for a fact you’re more into…

P: Stealing? Yeah, well it feels like work, so that’s what I tell people. And I’m pretty sure if I ever told anyone, besides you of course, that I steal for a living, I would get in huge trouble.

M: Yeah…*blushes* Sorry, I…I just can’t stop staring at that bandana. Covering your eyes. Why…why is it…?

P: *smiles* It’s definitely a conversation starter, huh? Keeping you safe is its main purpose.

M: *stares* Keeping me…safe? And how do you…see?

P: *sighs* I don’t. See, that is. I can’t really explain to you why it’s keeping you safe, but it is. Trust me.

M: *mumbles* It’s kinda awkward to have a conversation when you can’t make eye contact…

P: What?

M: Nothing. Anyway, so you steal for yourself, I know. But do you give to others?

P: Oh of course! It’s what keeps me from drowning in guilt. *grins*

M: *crosses arms* Well maybe you shouldn’t do it if it makes you feel guilty.

P: Hey, it’s what keeping me alive. Nobody will hire me because of stupid cross-genre laws-

M: Cross-genre? What’s that?

P: *sighs, evidently annoyed he let that slip* It’s what happens when two people from different realms marry and have…

M: *blushes* Ohhh…*looks away awkwardly* Um…sorry…

P: *sighs again* It’s fine. It was going to come out one way or another.

M: Well, I’ll…I’ll just wrap this up, if that’s okay with you?

P: Sure thing.

M: Where do you live?

P: In the middle of a forest in Kleftis. With lots of animals. Mostly squirrels.

M: Are you musically talented?

P: If you consider whistling musically talented, then yes. I’m practically an expert.

M: *smiles* Are you glad to be in the World now?

P: *considers* It’s an interesting place, a lot like Contemporalis. But I wouldn’t want to live here.

M: Alright, thank you, Pyrallis. *realizes something* Does your name have something to do with…?

P: Would you look at that, I’d better get going. See ya! *races out of the room*

Nice guy, right? Maybe a bit mysterious, but still, nice.🙂 I hope you enjoyed reading! Until next time!❤

By the Book Tag

Hello all! So, you may have noticed I didn’t post a CC on Saturday…I wasn’t feeling well, so I took a small break. But I’m back with a tag! I saw this on Deborah’s book blog a bit ago, so I thought I’d give it a whirl.😉

~~~

What book is on your nightstand right now?

I actually am not currently reading anything right now. Shocking, right?😄

.

What was the last truly great book you read?

I’m going to go with Illusionarium by Heather Dixon…That was like in May, but seriously, IT’S SO GOOD. *hugs book*

22840398

If you could meet any writer – dead or alive – who would it be? And what would you want to know?

Ooh, tough dilemma! I would be really curious to meet Laura Ingalls Wilder, C.S. Lewis, Marissa Meyer, and/or Shannon Hale. I don’t even know what I would ask…I would probably be to busy staring in awe or something like that.😉

i love you

What books might we be surprised to find on your shelves?

Um…*stares at shelves* Contemporary books? I don’t read a whole lot of that…but I do have some favorite contemporary series on my shelves, i.e. Summerhill Secrets by Beverly Lewis and the Real Life series by Nancy Rue.

12585726741865

How do you organize your personal library?

Mostly alphabetical by author’s last name. But the taller books that don’t fit on some of my shelves get organized differently. Plus I have a section for older books that my Mom and Grandmas gave me…

Planning can get so chaotic! When planning an event, booking a venue can be the most stressful... we're here for you.:

What book have you always meant to read and haven’t gotten around to it?

So, so, so, many…too many…I can think of many sitting on my shelves, on my GR tbr-list, at the library…HELP.

Anything you feel embarrassed never to have read?

I wouldn’t say embarrassed, but I feel kind of left out when everyone’s read Harry Potter, Divergent, or The Hunger Games… *shrugs* I can deal with it…

Disappointing, overrated, just not good: what book did you feel you are supposed to like but didn’t?

The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas comes to mind. I really wanted to like them too. But it just didn’t work for me.😦 I found Celaena slightly annoying, and I thought the pacing was a bit strange.

17939545

Do you remember the last book you put down without finishing?

I don’t usually do this very often, but I believe the last one I put down was Dorothy must Die by Danielle Paige. It had an interesting premise, but ultimately, it was to icky for me.

18053060

What kind of stories are you drawn to? Any you stay clear of?

Of course, fantasy is one of my most favorite genres.🙂 But I’ve also found I enjoy retellings, steampunk, and a little sci-fi.

<3 love it:

If you could require the president to read one book, what would it be?

The Bible is always a good place to start.🙂 Also, I agree with Deborah, our Constitution would be a good choice too.😉

What do you plan to read next?

Twinepathy by C.B. Cook is next in line on the tbr-list, and I’m super stoked! ^_^

26793603

~~~

That’s the tag! If you feel so inclined to do this tag, I heartily give you permission.😉 Hope you enjoyed! Until next time!❤

 

Character Conversations: Kokino

Character Conversations

Hello all! Today, I’ll be interviewing that friend of Saymeth’s who was mentioned last week.🙂

~

of Spooky Forest Strolls and Fancy Capes by La-Chapeliere-Folle on DeviantArt:

Little Red Riding Hood

Brings treats to her ailing Grandmother

Wanders through the woods

Is deceived by the wolf

Likes the color red

Loves her Grandmother very much

~

Kokino:

Kokino (Koki) of Koufit

Brings weapons to her conniving Grandmother

Lives deep in the woods, alone

Is in cahoots with the wolf

Still likes the color red🙂

Has a civil hate for her Grandmother

~

Me: Hi Koki.

Koki: *sighs, annoyed* Hey.

M: Look, I know you’re not terribly enthused about this interview, so I’ll try (key word, here) to keep it as short as I can.

K: *shrugs* Whatever.

M: You’re friends with Saymeth, right?

K: Yeah, he’s pretty nice. Naïve, sometimes foolish, but real nice.

M: *winces internally* So…I imagine you get upset with him pretty easily then, huh?

K: *rolls eyes* Yeah, he can be a pain, but I still keep him around. He helps me with my business.

M: Your…business?

K: Yeah. I run a secret weapons operative with my Grandma.

M: …You deal in weapons? What kinds? And what do you use them for? Do you work for someone?

K: Ugh, too many questions! Yes, secret kinds, secret stuff, and…yes.

M: *thinks for a minute* Okay. Forget I asked about it. How’s your family life?

K: What? I don’t have a family. Both my parents are dead.

M: *ouch* I’m so sorry…

K: *shrugs* Eh, I barely knew them. I was only four or so when it happened.

M: *shuffles papers uncomfortably* Um…So, do you like your life, living in the woods by yourself? Or do you live with your Grandma?

K: *snorts* If me and my Grandma lived with each other, we’d both kill each other. And yeah, I do like living in the woods. It’s quiet.

M: I’ve heard you work closely with forest dryads. Is that true?

K: Oh, yeah. We needed more operatives, so Grandma bribed them with arugula.

M: *bites back laughter* Okay… Parting questions. Do you play any instruments?

K: I can’t even play a kazoo.

M: *internally shakes head, distressed* Do you enjoy gardening?

K: *laughs* Are you kidding me? I don’t enjoy it in the least. You don’t usually enjoy something you do to stay alive.

M: *gulps* …Do you have any animals?

K: *grins* I’ve got a wolf hybrid.

M: …Thank you so much for answering my questions. Thus concludes our interview.

K: Great. *shoves chair away and swiftly leaves room*

~

Koki’s an…interesting sort, to say the least.😄 I hope you enjoyed the interview! Until next time!❤

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

Hello all you bloggers! Well, it appears that we’ve come to the mid-year marker already! How even?! But anyway, I was tagged by the lovely Miss Deborah over at The Page Dreamer, so thank you so much! I’m a little late to the party, but oh well. It’s still July, right?

I’ve read 25 books out of my 70 books goal, which I’m pretty okay with…My Goodreads challenge tells me I’m 13 books behind schedule, but I guess I can learn to live with that…

BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2016

How can you ask of me such a question?! I’ve actually loved all the books I’ve read so far, so…I guess I will go with my top 5: Heartless by Anne Elisabeth Stengl, Illusionarium by Heather Dixon, Jackaby by William Ritter, Paper Crowns by Mirriam Neal, and The Prisoner of Cell 25 by Richard Paul Evans. ^_^

The Prisoner of Cell 25 by Richard Paul EvansPaper Crowns by Mirriam NealJackaby by William RitterIllusionarium by Heather DixonHeartless by Anne Elisabeth Stengl

BEST SEQUEL YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2016

The next three books after Heartless, but Moonblood in particular, because LIONHEART MY PRECIOUS. *flails*

Moonblood by Anne Elisabeth Stengl

NEW RELEASE YOU HAVEN’T READ YET BUT WANT TO

Blood Ties by Hazel B. West sounds fabulous, but also Passenger by Alexandra Bracken and Twinepathy by C.B. Cook.

Twinepathy (IDIA #1)Passenger (Passenger, #1)Blood Ties (Modern Tales of Na Fianna #1)

MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE FOR THE SECOND-HALF OF THE YEAR

I’m going to have to go with Deborah and say Crooked Kingdoms. KAZ NEEDS INEJ WHY DOES NOBODY SEE THIS. I’m also super excited for Heartless by Marissa Meyer, which is a kind of Alice in Wonderland retelling so…yes, of course.

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2)Heartless

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT

I would definitely have to say Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. It had a really cool premise. I mean, a book in files, text messages, and documents? Yes please! But, unfortunately, it wasn’t for me. There was a lot of swearing, which I didn’t like, and it was just flat out crazy. Which normally, I like, but…

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman

BIGGEST SURPRISE

I would say The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart. I went into it thinking it would be just another middle-grade book, but I was delightfully surprised. ^_^ I really want to read the next books now!

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart

FAVORITE NEW AUTHOR

Ooh, I’m definitely going with Anne Elisabeth Stengl! Her writing style is so beautiful and easy to read and I can just slip into and not come out for a while.🙂 The Tales of Goldstone Wood are a new favorite!❤

Heartless by Anne Elisabeth StenglVeiled Rose by Anne Elisabeth StenglMoonblood by Anne Elisabeth StenglStarflower by Anne Elisabeth Stengl

NEWEST FICTIONAL CRUSH/SHIP

Tough one…I have a lot! I totally ship Abigail and Charlie from Jackaby. *squirms in delight* Also Hal and Ginny from Paper Crowns, and Lockwood and Anna (EVEN THOUGH IT’S SO SAD😦 )

Jackaby by William RitterPaper Crowns by Mirriam NealIllusionarium by Heather Dixon

As for crushes…well, I think Azrael from Paper Crowns, Jackaby from…Jackaby, Jonathan and Lockwood from Illusionarium, and Lionheart from The Tales of Goldstone Wood are all fabulous.❤ (Oh, and I just put a picture of Heartless down to signify TToGW series. I didn’t particularly like him in Heartless…)

Paper Crowns by Mirriam NealJackaby by William RitterIllusionarium by Heather DixonHeartless by Anne Elisabeth Stengl

NEWEST FAVORITE CHARACTER

SO HARD! I have sooooo many! But, since I don’t want this post to be a mile long list, I’ll settle on saying Jacin (even though we meet him in Cress) and Winter from The Lunar Chronicles. They’re so adorable!! ^_^

Winter by Marissa Meyer

BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY

Hmm…I  don’t cry to easily when I’m reading, even in super intense parts. But…I did come close to crying during Moonblood. ;(

Moonblood by Anne Elisabeth Stengl

BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAPPY

ALL THE BOOKS! But to be more specific…Winter really did make me super happy. Especially the ending…😀

 Winter by Marissa Meyer

FAVORITE BOOK TO FILM ADAPTION YOU SAW THIS YEAR

Gosh, I don’t know if I’ve seen any this year…*wracks brain* Yeah, I got nothing. But I really want to see The BFG, if that counts?

The BFG (2016) Poster

FAVORITE POST YOU HAVE DONE SO FAR THIS YEAR

Ooh, let’s see… Here are a few that I am pretty good with:

MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK YOU’VE BOUGHT SO FAR THIS YEAR

TOO MANY. That’s my answer. I’ll list some: The Word Changers by Ashlee Willis, Storm Siren by Mary Weber, King’s Warrior by Jenelle Schmidt, Twinepathy by C.B. Cook, The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan, Secrets of Valhalla by Jasmine Richards, The Body Electric by Beth Revis, Howl’s Moving Castle and Archer’s Goon by Dianna Wynne Jones, Entwined by Heather Dixon, Dream Treaders by Wayne Thomas Batson, and Five Magic Spindles by various authors. Wow, that’s more than some, plus this is only a small portion of my TBR pile, so…that’s scary…😄

Thanks for reading! Until next time!❤

And the Winner is…

silmarillion-awards-border-gold

silmarillion-awards-border-gold

Welcome to the Most Epic Hero Silmaril presentation! Today, we will be having our very own…

ARAGORN II

Son of Arathorn II, crowned King Tar Elessar Telcontar, 39th Heir of Isildur, 65th in the Numenorian line since Elros, and brother of Elrond.

Lord of the rings, lol he looks so much like my dad.=]:

So without further ado, here he is!

Thank you Madeline, for such a warm introduction. And thank you all for coming to attend the first annual Silmarillion Awards Ceremony!

*cue the round of applause*

I am surprised that you would choose me to present this award. I feel I am not worthy of such an honor, but I will try my best to accept it.  I surely hope presenting this award will be easier than battling in the fields of Pelennor…

*cue laughter*

You’re too kind an audience. *smiles* I would like to expound on the nature of the award being presented. The Most Epic Hero Silmaril will go to the hero who is brave in times of trouble, who goes out of his way to help people, who always tries to do the right thing, even when it may not always seem like it at the time.

The winner of this award certainly deserves this honor. He has proven steadfast and true in his fight to free the people from an oppressive king. He may be a wanted man, but he more then makes up for his supposed crimes by giving his aid to the people of…*pauses* Oh, I probably shouldn’t say from where just yet. *smiles* 

So without further delay, I am most proud to present that the winner for the Most Epic Hero Silmaril is…

ROBIN HOOD!

Character Conversations: Saymeth

Character Conversations

Hello all! Today, I have a very interesting character for you…

~

reposted from Stone Lions -  (stonelions on tumblr) - the words on the original post are mighty as well.:

The Big Bad Wolf

Tricks Little Red Riding Hood

Sneaks into Grandma’s house

Hungry beast

Clever and sly

Tries to kill Little Red, Grandma, and the Huntsman

.:

Saymeth of Koufit

Sweet and honest (which is sometimes not the best thing, given his position)

Would never dream of breaking into someone’s house

Vegetarian

Clever, but not so sly

Is in cahoots with Red Riding Hood

~

Me: Hey there Saymeth!

Saymeth: Oh, hello. Nice to meet you.

M: So, let’s start off, shall we? Tell me about your relationship to Red Riding Hood.

S: Red riding what? Oh, you mean Koki. She does wear a lot of that color, but I wouldn’t call her Red.

M: Do you know her well?

S: Um… yes. I wouldn’t call it a relationship though. Just friends is good. *has a dreamy look on face*

M: You seem to…how shall I put this? Like her.

S: *blushes profusely and turns away* We’re really jumping right into that? I mean, I like her, of course. We’re good friends.

Silence

M: *grins* Alright, then. What kind of work do you do?

S: *relief plainly visible on face* Oh, I work with Koki. We help capture miscreants and bring them to…

M: …?

S: …To our boss. He takes care of them then.

M: So…this boss of yours wouldn’t happen to be the same boss who Celthic and Zyke work for, would it?

S: *eyes widen* How do you know them?

M: We’re tight, trust me. So how exactly do you do your work? You aren’t saying you…

S: Kidnap people? Yes, that’s exactly what I’m saying. Though Koki’s approach is different than mine. I try to be nice and befriend them before swooping in. But she…she just goes for it.

M: You’re a…villain?

S: *shrugs* Villain is a strong word. I just do whatever I’m told.

M: Huh…Okay, well, you must know Celthic pretty well then, right?

S: *stiffens* Not anymore.

M: *raises eyebrow* How so?

S: Never mind how so. He’s disloyal to his friends. *scowls*

M: Okay then…Parting questions. Do you have any special abilities?

S: Well…*looks uneasy* I’m not supposed to tell you, but since it seems pretty open here, why not? I’m a telepathic wolf animorph.

M: A…what now?

S: *looks nervous* Can’t that be enough?

M: *le sigh* Fine. Do you like music?

S: As long as it’s not high pitched…*shudders*

M: *holds back laugh* Do you have any family members?

S: *looks very sad* Not that I remember.

M: *smiles sympathetically* Thank you for answering my questions, Saymeth.

S: Oh, you’re most welcome. *smiles*

There we are! How’d you like him? Doesn’t seem the villainous type to me. What do you think?

Until next time!❤
