Evil People Really Need To Take Better Care Of Their Stuff

Because this is what I found today.

EVIL MAG

Some poor evil…being…must have dropped it. It stinks for them, but t’s really quite good for me because it’s actually really interesting  It’s like ‘People’ for evil people. It’s the underworld’s gossip magazine.

Gollum’s new movie sounds interesting. I’d go watch it, but the closest location it’ll be shown is at Malfoy Manor, I think, and I really am not going to go all the way to England to watch one movie.

It was also really interesting that they mentioned the GSA. I don’t think they did a very good job describing it though. Look:

The GSA, also known as the Good-Sinful Alliance, is a cooperation started by one blogger who wanted to foster good-evil connections. We’re not entirely sure if it’s working or not, because we’ve been asking around for information and nobody’s responding.

Actually, Severus Snape, a confirmed member, threatened to hex us to the moon and back if we ‘asked him one more dumb question about the GSA’. 

We’ve only gotten one person to sit down with us and discuss their experience with the GSA, whose identity we’re trying to protect. We’re using her real name, because everybody  will think it’s fake, so they won’t actually go looking for her–ANYWAY: Her name is Aunty Sponge. 

Evil Magazine: Hello, how are you? We’d like to talk to you about your experiences with the Good-Sinful Alliance. 

Aunty Sponge: Okay. 

EM: So I’ve heard you attended the GSA’s annual conference a few months ago. How was it?

Sponge: Good. These cookies are fantastic. 

EM: Um, thanks. I also heard the Miraz answered your advice question at the conference. Were you glad your question was answered?

Sponge: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO NEVERRRRRRRRRR!

Unfortuntaly, Aunty Sponge had a total mental breakdown and was unable to complete the interview. Also, she was sent to a psychiatric hospital.

Um. Well. They really could use some writing skills. It’s hard to read. It’s like they just recorded it and stuck it on paper. Well, actually, they probably did.

I also learned a lot. Apparently, Rosaline is the name of the witch in Hansel and Gretel, and she became a millionaire after she sold her life story to the Grimm Brothers. She’s also a witch, which is how she survived the fire that Gretel threw her into. Apparently a basic Flame-Freezing charm did the trick.

Bellatrix’s article is quite interesting as well. She’s a very dramatic person. Apparently, she got a divorce to her husband Rodolphus Lestrange. And then ran off with his brother Rabastan. Or maybe it was the other way around. I can’t tell the two apart. It has the Wizarding World in quite an uproar, the magazine said.

It said on the cover that it was my trial issue. The people at Evil Magazine seem to be harboring under the delusion that I’m evil. Well, sometimes I am, but I’m not really evil like Sauron or Voldemort or the White Witch or anyone.

I signed up to get it anyways. Told them to take the gold from my Gringotts vault. I picked a random number  for my vault. I just hope it’s the Malfoys….

Why Did You Have To Die?

I’ve read a lot of books. I’ve read the words that make characters die. (That sounds awkward….) But really, I didn’t want them to die and I was always really depressed when that happened. So here’s a list of why I didn’t want them to die.

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!

voldemort

You-Know-Who (Aka Voldemort)

Okay, this is an odd one to have first, but I was kind of sad when he died, because I knew it meant the end of the books and the movies. I wouldn’t have wanted him to keep living, though. He’s had too much world-domination already and he’d just be more bad news for the world. Although, I did like Ralph Fiennes playing him. That man is really scary. And he was a pretty good villain, as far as villains go.

rue

Rue (the district 11 tribute)

I liked Rue, and since she was really young, it just made the Capitol’s Hunger Games seem so unjust and unfair. I cried when I went to see the movie and she died. (Don’t look at me funny, it was a really sad scene.)

(The one with the red hair is Alcie.)

Alcie from the Pandora Gets… series.

A lot of you don’t know about this series, but it’s a good book series about Greek myths.  The only reason I was sad Alcie died is because she wasn’t even supposed to, and because I liked her the best. Plus, she was cool. I was happy when they sent her back from the underworld, seeing as she wasn’t supposed to be dead and all that.

prim

Prim (from the Hunger Games)

This is just brutal. This was at the very end of Mockingjay, so after Finnick, Boggs, and the other people died, your heart was already crushed. Now your heart is shattered into a million pieces. Depressing….

Padfoot (Aka Sirius from Harry Potter)

This is Harry’s only family, and then he gets killed. And he was so cool too!

Finnick Odair (Hunger Games)

There aren’t any good pictures of Finnick yet, so he doesn’t get a picture, unfortunately. According to the book, he has bronze hair and sea-green eyes. I was sad when he died, because I liked him just as much as Peeta.

dobby

Dobby (Harry Potter)

House-elf who saves Harry & Co. Then gets killed. Sad.

snape

Severus Snape (Harry Potter)

Not going to say anything. This is just the saddest thing!

I think I need to stop now. After all, I could go on and on. Plus, this post is kind of sad.

Any comments?

TCWT, Writing, And A Funny Picture

 

First, that was found randomly on the internet by yours truly and was laughed at, then posted onto the next post for you all to see. Even if you haven’r read Harry Potter, it’s a bit of ironic humor that can be gotten by most people.

So, you may be wondering about the title of this post, and let me tell you why.

Recently, I have been thinking about TCWT a lot, probably due to the fact that the September blog chain topic was just announced. (And no, I haven’t signed up yet, I’m still thinking about it.) Anyways, I’ve been thinking about how most of these prompts are about, um, writing.

Well, that’s to be expected, but to be honest, I am not your average TCWT’er. (Sorry to stereotype, but it’s the only way I can explain this.) The average TCWT’er is actually writing a novel. I write more comics, short stories, and blog posts. Currently, I have two short stories that I’m working on, the first one is called “Brains vs. Evil Ones: Book 1. Playing Tag with Evil Ones and Other Fun Stuff. You can access the first chapter of it here.

To really understand it, you will have to click around the site a little, but hopefully you’ll get the gist of it.

The other one is a remake of The Hunger Games, which is based off of what you saw/clicked/read at the site linked above. It’s going to be interesting.

But anyways. I just don’t get it. I seem to be cursed with the ability to think of a great idea for a story, then miserably fail at actually write it.

Example-So I was thinking about something where this girl goes into a alternate world, then have to save the world or something. Of course, then I read Coraline, and dropped the idea because they were so identically close. Sigh.

Another example-When I was younger, I wrote a five-page “journal” about this girl. It was so incredibly lame and stupid. Here’s some exerpts, so we can all laugh at it.

I am so excited! My birthday is tomorrow! I must go plan the small bits that are left! I will fill you in on my party tomorrow, dear Journal. By the way, Brenda’s horrible cold has gone so we will be having my party at the park.

Tomorrow Grandpapa arrives from Mankatoe, a city not far from here. Grandpapa will be oh so proud because Brenda just lost her first tooth. Aunt Henna will be escorting Grandpapa to our home, because he is old and frail and we do not want him to die on his way here.

So, now that you know what sort of a young writer I was, we can dig on this deeper.

I just don’t get it.

My brain is creative.

My brain is working.

I like to write.

I like to write fiction/science fiction stories.

So why can’t I write a novel? I think I just don’t have enough stamina. I write for ages, and ages, then I’m on Chapter…..2. And I still have who knows how many chapters left to write?

For this reason alone, I have a lot of respect for authors whose books are really big, because, just think if what they went through for just that one book. I mean, I could never, ever, do that, never in a million years.

Also, I think another one of the reasons is that a lot of the ideas I think of are pretty much cheap copies of another book. Like, for instance, I wanted to write lots of books about wizardry after I finished the Harry Potter series. Or creepy dystopian novels after I finished the Hunger Games.

*shrugs* Oh, well. At least this blog I am able to rant to all of you about why I will never write a book over 200 pages long, why I have a creative mind, and why fate keeps getting in the way of all the other stuff.

This has been a semi-literate post about my novel-writing.

 

Edit: Because the picture is apparently being irritating and not showing up, click here to see it.

Late Book-covers…

Okay. First. Yes, I’ve been gone for a while. Second. Yes, I missed my day(thanks to end-of-the-year school projects) And I’m really sorry about it. Really, really sorry. Let’s just forgive and forget.

So, this month’s TCWT post was What are some book-covers that grab you? Why? or something like that.

The first one is the Harry Potter covers. I love looking at these, and since I’m a HP fan, I have all of them. You find a lot of really big things in the book illustrated on the cover.

 

 

Another book cover is the Pandora… series. These covers are also interesting and mostly, colorful. You might have gathered I like a colorful cover.

Yet another cover I like is………the Mockingjay book’s cover. Ya know, the third book in the Hunger Games trilogy? I really like this one. It’s so simple, yet so perfect for the book. No, I don’t know how they do it.

 

And the last one. Marley and Me. I’m not wild about the book, I don’t think it’s amazing or anything, but the DOG on the cover is just so cute, I had to put him on here.

So, there are four purely awesome book covers I like. What do you think? Let’s chat in the comments.

Oh, and by the way, you should see if any of these other fellow bloggers like any of the books I liked! (Or, rather, covers.)

January TCWT Blog Chain!!

I feel so proud to have this on my blog! I don't know why, but I am.

Here starts January’s TCWT Blog Chain!!!!

This month’s topic–What are examples of books you’ve thrown across the room with force? Why did you throw them?

Okay. I honestly have never thrown a book across the room, partly because I read a lot at school and I would most likely get in trouble, and partly because they weren’t awful enough. However, I have come close!!

Here’s my first example—The Giver. (I wrote about this on my book blog. See the review here It’s a little embarrassing, I wrote it when I was an uneducated blogger.) So, at first, I was like, Oh, this is a good book, blah blah blah. Then I got to the middle and I started disliking it. Then I got to the end and yes, I was ready to throw it across the room. But I didn’t.

2—-The Postcard. This one was lame. It was supposed to be a mystery. But it stank. You could totally tell they were copying someone’s idea. It sounded like 1,000 other mysteries I have read. I wasn’t ready to throw this one across the room, but I was really dissappointed. After all, I did pay 10.00 for it. What a rip off, and what’s worse was, the time I finished reading it the book fair was gone!!! (I got it at the book fair.) So let this be a lesson to you, never buy anything from book fairs unless you are completely, entirely sure you want it.

3—–The Yearling. I soooo do totally not like this book!!! It’s sooo sad!!! The mom kills the poor, defenseless, little, darling deer!!! I was depressed after I read this. I think it was a present. Anyways, it’s also still on my book shelf waiting for me to stop being so pathetic so I can finish it (No, I didn’t finish it.) Okay. Enough said.

So……those are my takes on 3, in my opinion really bad books.

Like what you see? It might be the prompt. Or it might be me. You pick.
