yeah, it's so cool, yeah, it's totally awesome(NaNoWriMo update)

Hey everybody! Thanks for the awesome comments on my earlier post.



NaNoWriMo has been good to me. I can't believe it's almost over! So far, I've never been ahead, but yesterday I managed to catch up at 36,755 words.


As for plot and stuff, it's good! I'm afraid my novel might not flow as well as I like, but I haven't got that "AUGH EVERYTHING I WRITE IS CRAP" feeling yet.



In other news, LEIA AND JC WHERE ARE YOU??? We need to plan the you-know-what!!!!! >.>

Thanksgiving's tomorrow! I have not had any pumpkin pie yet and I hope not to be disappointed.

I might do yet another Hunger Games post, basically on the series as a whole. I'm still excited for the movie. Hopefully I may get one of my friends to come and see it with me.

Also, I might do a Star Wars post. Hey, did you know this was originally a Star Wars blog? Yeah, crazy, right? But I've gotten back into it over the last couple days.

Oh, and seriously, when are they going to make an Artemis Fowl movie? They've said they'll start "next year" for the last like, four years!!!!!!!! The series is ten years old!!!

I spent an hour I should have spent writing yesterday looking up Artemis Fowl fanart.(Oh, and hey, my blog initials are the same as Artemis Fowl's. My life is fulfilled.)

I love this one, especially Juliet and Holly. Artemis's vest has got to be the nerdiest thing I've ever seen. And if you magnify it they screwed up the tagline. It's "Fowl by name, foul by nature"  not (squints) whatever she put.

This next one's later in the series.

  1. I wouldn't mind another Hunger Games post. I haven't read the books--nor do I plan too--but I sure love to read reviews, :)

    Best wishes with Nano!

  2. I'm glad NaNo's been treating you okay! ;) I caught up on my word count yesterday, as you saw on my blog...so glad about it, too. :) I've had some "AUGH MY NOVEL IS SO BOOOORRIING!" thoughts, but I refuse to give up. I plan to win my first NaNo, haha! ;)

    I am SO excited for the Hunger Games movie! Aaah! It's going to be SO AMAZING.
    Peeta or Gale, who do you like more? (Or is it neither? Maybe...Finnick instead? ;)

    I hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving! Enjoy that pumpkin pie! <3

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…
