Happily Ever After
My favorite genre of all time is fantasy/adventure fiction. I am, unfortunately, a big fan of spoilers. Before I read a book or watch a movie, I'll always go online and look it up and read the summary. If it's not available, I'll bug other people who I know have read the book before. (This really annoys the heck out of my cousin. "Here, Amaranthine, read this book." "How is it?" "READ IT!")

When I bug people, I normally ask these questions. "Does [Main Character] survive? Does she? Does she? Does her mom/dad/sibling/cat die? Are they all happy at the end of the book? Basically, does this book have a happy ending? I mean, that's the main question!
 If they say, "Yes, it does," then somehow it makes what happens to the characters in the meantime more bearable to read.

Even in the books, it helps. Like if some one important, like Thomas Edison, is in prison for refusing to bow to a idol(I don't know!) and some kids time travel from the present and assure him that everything's going to be all right, it gives him hope. Right?

Well, we're the main characters in our own story right now. And sometimes it seems like the trials the characters in books go through can't compare to what we're facing right know.  Like, what's a charging rhino against a bratty sister? ???????( I don't have a sister, just an example.) Or having to survive a night in the desert versus having to survive the death of someone close to you?

Well let me say this: Our story has a happy ending. And knowing that should make today more bearable.

Go get your bible and read Mark chapter 13. It is filled with many horrible prophecies that could be right out of a Suzanne Collins novel. But I think it is one of the most hopeful chapters in the bible.  

"Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches bud and the leaves begin to sprout, you know that summer is near. In the same way, when you see these things taking place, you can know that his return is very near, right at the door." "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never disappear."*

And we all live happily ever after.

*Mark 13:28, 29, 31.
However, as it is written:
   "No eye has seen,
      no ear has heard,
   no mind has conceived
   what God has prepared for those who love him" 1 Corinthians 2:9

(fangirl flapping of arms and running around in circles) (eee) (ignore this)(spoilers for Son of Neptune)

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO

love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.

Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.

I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
