Topic: Be Grateful
Please remember: These our merely opinions, and opinions are always different. We are sharing our thoughts, we are not trying to normalize or force these upon you or into your minds.
Ship: Hophie (Hort and Sophie)
Sophie and Hort. Hm. Well, I’m a Hophie shipper, duh, but sometimes you have to ask yourself, “What’s so special about this ship?” I think it’s how much they love each other, and also the lack of gender stereotypes. Sophie’s strong, and brushes off Hort’s pleadings. Hort’s soft, and shows emotions. He can be super kind and gentle, or he can be a bundle of anger and energy. Them together is a break from the normal “strong boy emotional girl” thing that people seem to always use.
I personally love Hophie. It’s very sweet and Sophie was finally able to realize that she didn’t need a prince to make her happy, she just needed Hort. This ship is also significant because it shows that Evil can love, just as much as Good.
Hophie is a beautiful ship between a wickedly good witch, and an adorable weasel-y Never, who would do anything for love
I love Hophie. Hort loved Sophie from the beginning and nothing changed his mind about her. No matter what Sophie did, he still loved her. Sophie on the other hand, finally realized that Hort cares about her and that she loves him too and I think it’s so sweet. They both understand each other and I’m absolutely sure they can be happy together.
I absolutely love Hort and sophie, they are my OTP. I just think they are perfect together. Hort balances out Sophie in so many ways, and (OTK spoilers) he legit died for her! That’s just true love right there. And, their relationship is developed so perfectly. First hatred, then frenemies, the friends, and finally true loves! Hort and sophie is the perfect Evil couple, they were MADE for each other!
I think Hophie is a great ship. It shows that two Nevers can love, and that Sophie doesn’t need a prince to be happy. Hort loves her from the start, but it takes Sophie almost losing him to realize she loves him…that’s really sweet. Their love and this ship is adorable and the two really balance each other out.

WEEKLY SHORT STORY
The Thankfulness Show
—With Evers and Nevers—
Castor and Pollux sit at a recording table. Castor looks as mean as ever while Pollux smiles creepily at the crowd in a way he thinks is pleasing but really isn’t. As the cerberus are together, their heads are joined. In the background there is a discarded turkey carcass Pollux must have used to arrive.
TV Announcer: Hello and welcome to…the Thankfulness Show! I’m your host, Pollux.
Other TV Announcer: AND I’M YOUR CO-HOST CASTOR. *to Pollux* WHY AM I ALWAYS CO-SOMETHING WHY AM I NEVER IN CHARGE? YOU WERE KICKED OUT OF THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND CAMELOT LIKE THREE TIMES.
Pollux: *somehow holds bridge of nose even though he doesn’t really have one as he’s a dog but oh well* This is going to be an awful–long, I mean long–show.
Castor: NO IT WON’T I NEED TO GET HOME IN TIME TO EAT MY THANKSGIVING BACON!!
Pollux: *sighs* Well if you would stick to the script and not interrupt me, it would take the scheduled time of an hour…which is less than the time I pursue we’ll be spending now…
Castor: *grumble grumble* FINE.
Pollux: *clears throat* Our first participant is Dean Emma Anemone of The School for Good!
*Audience applauds, claps, and whistles*
Dean Anemone steps onto the stage and waves to the crowd. She is dressed in an extra-seasonal autumn leaf dress and her blonde hair is styled with complementary pinecones and pumpkin barrets.
Castor: OKAY EVERYONE BE QUIET.
Castor: *growls* WHAT’RE YOU THANKFUL FOR, EVER.
Dean Anemone: Well I’m thankful for many things. Of course, the color pink, ever since that awful Sader woman removed all traces of it from the castle I’ve made sure to have pink everywhere on me! *outfit loses seasonal touch as she turns it pink*
Pollux: Anything else?
Dean Anemone: Ooh, I am also grateful for being Dean of The School for Good. Being able to corrupt influence students into being Good and liking pink is my greatest joy!
Pollux: *nods* Thank you.
Castor: NOW GET OFF THE STAGE SO WE CAN GET HOME SOONER
Dean Anemone exits the stage and Dean Manley enters dressed in black robes. He doesn’t bother waving to the crowd, just takes a seat in a lumpy looking chair and glares at Pollux.
Pollux: And now we have Dean Manley or The School for Evil! What are you grateful for?
Dean Manley: My job at the school.
Dean Manley: That’s it.
Pollux: …well, um, okay–
Castor: GET OUT OF HERE NOW! NEXT PERSON GET YOUR BU.TT ON THE STAGE!
Manley stalks off and Kiko, Beatrix and Reena skip on. They’re in matching fall patterned overall dresses and rain boots. All three smile and link arms.
Castor: WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL FOR. GO NOW.
Kiko: Well I’m grateful that I’m here with my best friends, Bea and Reena! Oh, and also my family of course, and the adorable little kitty I found yesterday! And tulips, yes!
Beatrix: I’m thankful that we get to go sail uncharted realms as soon as this TV show is over because somehow we got back just in time to attend and then we go right back to our near-death experiences. Oh, and that there are no Woods-wide villains trying to take over the Woods and Woods Beyond.
Reena: I’m grateful for my parents and Kiko and Bea. And Jeevan and all his charming dates. And delicious food!
Pollux: Thank you, ladies! That was lovely–
Castor: NOW SCRAM
Kiko, Reena, and Beatrix flee the stage and Tedros and Agatha walk on. The two are hand-in-hand and in their regular royal/dark colored clothes. Tedros beams at the crowd an Agatha slinks more to the back.
Pollux: Sorry about Castor. He’s in bad sorts today. What are you two, King Tedros and Queen Agatha, grateful for this year?
Tedros: I’m grateful that Japeth, Rhian, Rafal, Evelyn Sader, and every other villain are vanquished and in their rightful graves. Also that Agatha, my True Love, and I are finally married and I am now recognized as the rightful King of Camelot. And our kids, too!
Agatha: Aw, thanks. I’m thankful for Tedros, our family, and the safety of our world now. Many of those who have died will be missed, but they’re with their friends and family, so I’m grateful that they aren’t all alone…even the villains.
Sophie from backstage: Only someone Good would say that.
Sophie twirls onstage wearing a sparkly orange and red sequin dress with magenta heels, pink eyeshadow, and lipstick. Her hair is curled perfectly and woven with holly leaves and sprinkled with glitter.
Pollux: Um, it’s not your turn yet–
Sophie: Flah-sé-dah, darlings. It is my turn now, as I am on the stage! *turns to the crowd and tosses hair* I am thankful that I am alive and not murdered by my ex-boyfriends! Oh, and that I am still the most fashionable person in the whole Woods AND Woods Beyond! AND cucumbers, of course! How would I live without cucumbers?
Agatha: You’re not thankful for, you know…your friends and family?
Sophie: Well I am, but myself is a much more glamorous thing to be thankful for, don’t you think? Besides, you’re practically pure Good, Aggie, you have to say those things!
Hort runs onstage in a rumpled red blazer and knotted tie. He glances around the stage, freaked out by everyone watching.
Hort: Oh there you are Sophie! It’s not your turn yet!
Pollux: *mutters* Well THIS is going haywire…
Castor: HURRY UP AND SAY IT WEASEL BOY AND THEN WE CAN GET OUTTA HERE!
Hort: Well, um, I’m thankful for, um, Sophie. And our kids. And that the Woods are finally safe, and all our friends, Good or Evil.
Sophie: *smiles fondly* Fine, I guess that one Never acts like an Ever at times.
Castor: OKAY EVERYONE THE SHOW’S DONE!!
Pollux: No–we have to bow–say our closure–
Evers and Nevers(students) file onto the stage in loud clusters. They walk up to Castor and Pollux and yell that they want to be on the show as well, and that they’re been waiting for hours to be featured and now it’s over.
Pollux: Sorry, sorry, but SOMEONE kept interrupting and is now wrecking the set and we need to stop filming!
Neverboy: But I wanna be on TV!
Evergirl: I told my mother all about it and she was so proud!
Pollux: *growing overwhelmed* Children, we need to turn off the cameras, we’re going overtime–
Students: *swarm around him* Please? Please? We want to be on it! Zoo in on us! Please–
Castor: *roars* BE QUIET!! LEAVE NOW!! EVERYONE!!
Everyone flees, terrified.
Castor: Your show is ruined.
Pollux: …it’s alright. We can just edit that part out.
Castor: You know…I’m grateful for you, Pollux.
Pollux: Me too.
Castor: AND WE WILL NEVER SPEAK OF THIS AGAIN, AGREED?

The Greatest Showman
This movie and its songs are a great example of showing us to be grateful for what we have. Personally i feel like all of these songs have some element of gratefulness.

INTERESTING NEWS FROM THE WORLD
This Friday, November 20th, was President of the United States, Joe Biden’s birthday. He turned 76, but will be the 46th come January (see what I😉 did there?)
Shawn Mendes and Justin Beiber are about to drop a new single so be in the lookout for that!
Fan of Charli D’Amelio? She just hit 100 million followers on Tiktok. First person since Tiktok started to do that! Congrats to her!
What was the color(s) of the boys’ uniforms during the second year?
There is always something to be grateful for. If you try to be thankful, you look for the good things inside everything and it helps you to be positive. That’s why the ones who are grateful for what they have and who they are, see the world beautifully and get what they want in a much easier way. So always try to be thankful; for who you are, what you have, the lessons you have learned from the last, your friends, etc. It helps you to feel better about the world you live in. It helps you to stand up again when you need it. Being grateful has lots of good effects so it’s really important. Do your best to be thankful cause you won’t regret it
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
“The more grateful I am, the more beauty I see.” – Mary Davis
Gratefulness. Appreciation. Whatever you want to call it. Thankfulness. Do you say things you’re thankful for on Thanksgiving? That’s gratefulness. Now you just have to continue doing that every day of the year . . . just kidding. You don’t have to do that. Maybe that can be your New Year’s Resolution, even. Nobody ever keeps their New Year’s Resolutions, so you won’t be as pressured to actually do it. Or maybe you actually want to do it.
Start today. Think, right now, what am I thankful for in my life? You don’t have to answer it. You don’t have to think about it. Just . . . let it sit. Go.
Okay, you’re back now. I don’t know if you left for a minute, two minutes, zero seconds . . . but I honestly don’t care. If you care, I hope you did it. You also might want to do it at some point, but you don’t have the energy to do it right now.
Three things I’m grateful for in my life:
No matter who you are, if you’re reading this, you’re an amazing person and I’m so glad you’re alive with me. *hugs*
Now. You do it. Or don’t. First read the rest of this newsletter, because it’s really good and I don’t want you to miss out.
