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.

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!

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.
