so i am pretty excited( rambly post)

the legit trailer for THG is out...I know what I said about the books and I still stand to what I said but the movie still looks like it will be pretty good. I know it will turn more people to the books, and that's good because the first book at least carries extremely important messages about violence, poverty, and wealth. but it's also bad because those messages are wrapped up in a disturbing and slightly freakish package that's not for young eyes, and the risks might be more than the rewards.


(get off your soapbox amaranthine. You're being a hypocrite, telling people that they shouldn't read them when you're being excited about them and promoting them yourself.)

I know what it looks like, but those people who read THG and feel the same way i did about them are still a little excited for the movie, and those who really liked it are pretty much in a frenzy about it.

also the movie will probably be not as bad as the books, because the reason the books were so disturbing is not because they were violent. There is actually not that much depicted violence in the book. The reason the books are disturbing are because SC is an extreemmmellly talented and fantastic writer and she has a way of making EVERYTHING(not just deaths) freakish and disturbing when she wants it to be. But this is a movie, so a lot of that will probably not be translated.


ok ok, what I'm trying to say is that I don't want to be one one of those who are really excited and happy and squealy for the movie because they LOVE The Hunger Games and who think that the books are just extremely awesome books and the movie will be an extremely awesome movie just like any other movie. Because it won't be. I've never read any books like it.

I like to liken THG to like a brain sucking parasite that latches on to your brain for like a week after you read it. For that week you are depressed, full of morbid thought, can't sleep, and just cannot. stop. thinking. about THG, you replay the worst scenes in your head over and over.

And then, it just sort of dissolves. You are free from the effects. All of a sudden, The Hunger Games doesn't seem that bad and you find yourself actually excited for the movie and looking up tumblrs and posters and THG trailers, when back when you read it, just the reminder of THG made you fearful and depressed.

I'll be sure to read christian reviews before I go see it, just sayin.

  2. Chibi will be making me go see this. Or have my dad take her to go see it, since I am slightly afraid to look it up. XDD She gave me an overview of the books though, and they seem disturbing but very good at the same time! XDD

  3. That's EXACTLY how it is. :D It's kind of sad, actually, but it's true. And I am so excited I want to pee myself. Is that bad? XD

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.

eeeeeeeeeeeeee
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
Similarities:
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…
