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….

Sometimes My Brain Scares Me….

I was all prepared to write you people a GREAT post today, to celebrate my return to the blogosphere.

Right?

Right.

But then, as if my brain was controlled by the Imperius Curse…..it opened Paint.

And proceeded to make this.

I mean, seriously. I have no idea where on the good green earth this came from.

Sometimes, my brain scares me.

And I think I’ll…erm…go think of some actual post ideas now.

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?

Inside The Junk Drawer’s First Blogoversary! :D

Well, today is Inside The Junk Drawer’s first birthday!

Welcome to the party. We have chocolate cake, fruit punch, and vanilla ice cream.

It seems a lot of the blogs I follow/read/really like have all had blogoversaries lately. (Well, maybe not all of them. But a lot!)

I remember just setting this blog up. I wanted another blog where I could just write about anything. I thought it would be fun! I was right! 😀 I had a hard time finding a good URL, though. I finally settled on weirdalocity.wordpress.com, hoping my readers could spell it. The title, subtitle, and widgets have changed over the one year that I’ve been here. I think the title has gone over seven changes. The theme changes number at least over twenty. I do enjoy playing with those themes. 🙂

Last year, I was an inexperienced blogger, and not officially a “teen” yet. You can tell I had a hard time finding stuff to blog about. Look here and here. You are free to laugh-I did. (Gosh, I was downright terrible!) You can tell that I had no idea what, how, or when, or where to blog. Hopefully, you think I’m better than I was a year ago. I remember writing that second post. It was my first official post, and I really didn’t want to watch the show, so I said to myself, “Oh, I’ll just blog instead!”

I really enjoy hitting the “Publish” button and knowing my work is out soaring through the Internet, reaching the 22 subscribers I have garnered through one year. I know that a few of those readers and subscribers will read it. They will like it. They might comment. I’ve got a goal for Inside The Junk Drawer’s second year in existence. Comment more! I know a few other bloggers have done it, Miriam Joy and nevillegirl for starters. It’s easy and makes me feel happy. So please try. If we all commented more, the blogosphere would be a happy place with lots of comments. The more, the better! 😀

Great Quotes (And Their Explanations)

Recently, I have been super into quotes, you know, like, MUST GET THG/HP/WHATEVER QUOTES…………NOW!

Like that.

I just want to share some of my favorite quotes, so….here goes.

Harry Potter

“After all this time?”……………”Always.” -Dumbledore and Snape

So sweet. This is the best quote of the books, in my opinion.

“Now I’m going to bed, before either one of you get us killed, or worse, expelled.”…………”She needs to sort out her priorities.” -Ron and Hermione

Ehehe! I love this quote, it’s so funny and represents Ron and Hermione so well.

“I touch………….now!” -Voldemort

I don’t like this for the scene it’s in, but for Ralph Fienne’s and Daniel Radcliffe’s acting, and the importance of this scene.

“Moooooorning….” -George

I love it for the awkward sort of humor, and for the fork sticking out of George’s ear as he says this

“Let’s finish this how we started……..together!” -Harry

Just a great quote. No other words for it.

Hunger Games

“Here to finish me off, sweetheart?” -Peeta

Hands down, the best quote, in my opinion. I don’t have a particular reason, I just like it.

“Remember, we’re madly in love, so it’s okay to kiss me whenever you want.” -Peeta again

I don’t know why Peeta has all the great quotes. He’s just cool that way.

“You’ve got as much charm as a dead slug.” -Haymitch

AHAHAHAHA! So funny. But poor Katniss. She is a dead slug.

“No. Now shut up and eat your pears.” -Katniss

This is the funniest line in the arena, so don’t blame me for liking it.

Maximum Ride:

“The Erasers were bad fliers. And in their minds, they weren’t all kill the mutants, like they usually are. They were like, remember to flap!” -Angel

If you don’t get it, go read the books, as they’re pretty good.

 

I really could go on and on forever, an ever, and ever. But I can’t in a blog post.

What do you think of some of my personal favorites? Do you have quotes you like? From different series? Tell me!

I Feel Loved Today

Yesterday, I was graced with a blog award, The Fantastic Blog Award, to be exact.

Ta-da!

Anyway, the rules seem to have been lost somewhere in the blogosphere, but from Shonti’s blog, whom I received this lovely award from, you answer the questions, write some questions, and post your nominees.

So, here are the questions from Shonti:

1. If you can be any animal what would it be? I would so be a dolphin.

2. If you were in the ultimate game of hide and seek and you could hide anywhere in the USA where would it be? Why? (and before you ask how the seeker would find you, you would have a tracking device strapped onto you)In the crowds of DisneyWorld. This is because even with a tracking device, those crowds are HUGE. So it would be quite hard to find me. I think it’s unfair to give the seeker a tracker, though. They ought to give the hiders a tracker instead because then they could know where the tracker was. If we did play it that way, though, I would so not want to play if I was the seeker.

3. If you could pick one person to spend the whole day with, who would it be? What would you do? Hmm…………because a lot of the people I know would drive me crazy if I was forced had to spend a day with them. I’ll guess I could say my old teacher, Mrs. Abbott, because instead of driving me crazy, I’d drive her crazy 😀

4. You are being forced to marry a fictional character, who would it be? WHAT?!?!?! Ohhhkayyyyy…I guess . Oh, jeez, I don’t know. Probably someone from Harry Potter, because Peeta’s probably taken already. Probably the same with Gale.

5. What’s your life saying? I do not have a life saying. However, I can make one up on the spot, which is what I intend to do now. It is…. Unicorns and nerdiness are awesome! So be a nerdy unicorn! 😀 😀 😀 😀

Here are my five questions….

  1. What is the name of your bedroom door? Why does it have that name?
  2. What is the most recent WORST book that you read?
  3. Do you enjoy old-fashioned telephones? Why/why not?
  4. If you could only read one book through the whole year, which one would it be?
  5. What is the best part of your blog/your favorite widget?

Now for the nominees.

Allegra at All I Need Is A Keyboard!

Kirsten at Kirsten Writes!

Aaaannnd….

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.
