About Me(attempt no. 687)

I am posting partly because a bunch of extended family members might possibly be seeing this, and partly to torture the people who vowed to comment on every post they read for the entire month of February. }:) Let's see if they can keep it up.

Hi, and welcome to my blog! If you are here, you are awesome. I post about Star Wars, writing, and other stuff. 

Follow me! (revolutionary chorus plays in the background) A little bit about me:

Amaranthine Scylla Degada is a pianist, dancer, writer, reader, and Killer of Plants who still wishes she had been born a duck. She has very widespread interests and has a tiny smidgen of talent in almost every field except art and gardening. 

As of February Third, 2011 she has written one novel and countless short stories with no plot. She has two pets, ahem, younger brothers.

She lives in a nice big white house surrounded by daisy and rose bushes and scrawny fruit trees which only survive because her grandmother comes every week to take care of them.

She loves Star Wars and has read almost every Star Wars novel published. She is a Christian who believes that life passes way too quickly, which is why she still has trouble writing "2008" on her school assignments.

For more information, read about me on the ongoing, never ending,  sometimes-insensible February "challenge."


  1. *Force-choke*

    I enjoyed learning more about you!

  2. *sigh*
    You're evil.
    What I've been doing is I just don't read the posts I know I won't have anything to say on.

  3. Huh. So.....

    You wish you were born a duck? Hmmmmmm.....

    *Han Solo in background: I can arrange that!!*

    Qui, I've sorta been doing the same thing. I want to comment, but I've been running out of time!!!!

    Jedi~Chick <3

  4. Well, I did take the challenge, so, here goes..

    A duck? I guess that comes with some advantages. :-D

    Life does pass too quickly..

    -Barriss :-D

  5. A duck? I suppose it would be pretty interesting to be a duck. I have a pet (little brother) of my own, and I would be happy to trade for a less annoying one. Jk, right now he's actually being fun.

  6. *grins* I love this post!

    Oh, and yes. I have been keeping it up. ;P

    -Leia <3

  7. The picture of you I think perfectly describes the way I see you. lol

Amaranthine <3's you. Thanks for the comment!

(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…
