@royalfudge @msgranger @catsforlife @uraza169 @thecoven4ever
I hope that’s all the staff
I’m just tagging you because I’ve a few questions about being a teacher.
1) Do teachers not rank other teachers even if they’re in their class?
2) Does there have to be a set schedule for posting classes?
3) We’re all using the same ranking system, right?
None of us gave you the link. Have the link to the teacher doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1aayIJhynEddkDFeppTfXe-xwWJ1It4a7CH8qfFna8Cs/edit?usp=sharing
Sorry to keep bugging you with questions, but you know when you edit a doc or are on one, does your full name of your Google account come up, cuz I may have found a way to finally edit docs
Sometimes all the years just blur together into collection of moments, most forgotten, some treasured and some haunting.
Is it possible to forget anything or are most moments just never brought to mind again? I don’t claim to know anything about how memory works though, maybe I should look into it
What spurred me to make this post was a post of…[Read more]
I felt the exact same way a few years back. when I first joined, I was guided by @Jessicaerin, @Kitkat66, @Impossiblegirl, @Pinkeleora08 and many others. Later, @Prstncharlie, @Thecoven4ever and you were added to the mix. No one I talked to understood how much I grew under their wings. When my friends began to leave, I began to feel the chilling…[Read more]
<3 I'm so glad you did identify with it and that you wrote that comment, it's so lovely and inspiring 😊. Together we'll face the wind and the sun. Thank you for both taking the time to read my ramblings and for telling me about your experience, it's nice to know that I was less alone than I thought
It’s no problem @Darkfire2010, I’m so glad I’ve found someone who feels the same way. 😊
Reading this… the metaphorical picture it gave me was so vivid, painful in a beautiful way. Orla, your words are words that many of the site have thought before, but you are one of the first I’ve seen to truly put it into words so well.
I joined in the middle of what some would call the dark ages. The people around me, the ones who were left a…[Read more]
I understand. Thank you for everything you’ve said.
I understand what it’s like to join and see a faded wonderland. That was me too, right when I first joined, there was a poet generation before me and there were people who were left over. You were kinder than me and I respect you a lot for reaching out to older users because I was scared to when…[Read more]
Oh that actually makes a lot of sense. It’s funny, I’ve never thought of you older users as being… younger users once. It’s kinda funny to consider that, but it absolutely makes sense. I was very intimidated to talk to all of you at first haha, still am sometimes if I’m being honest. I think most people are intimidated by these people…[Read more]
Oh my goodness, this makes me want to cry.
This is beautiful. Filled with a disproportionate amount of beauty and pain. It feels so strange to hear those memories, most of which you’ve just hinted at to me, spoken aloud.
I joined in a weird time, the middle of the Golden Age, though I’ll never really know how strange it was to see me become more…[Read more]
That’s one of my faults in afraid, I hint at everything rather than just saying it outright. Do it all the time
Beauty and pain are often interwoven I find. Change is painful sometimes, but it can also be beautiful. Same goes for being lost. Strangely, I find myself in my memories, when I remember I feel less lost. They give me purpose, to try and…[Read more]
I FINISHED IT!!!!!
I loved it!!! There was so many funny bits, it’s fast paced and I definitely didn’t see any of the twists coming! Also, you’ve got a very unique writing style
There was a few things I think you could do to improve it, I recognise that you’re still working on the story tho, but here’s what I thought you could do to make it even better
1) work on…[Read more]
@Darkfire2010, I’ve been working on everything you have mentioned, and am currently working on chapter two of draft 10. You haven’t disheartened me in the slightest. I will most certainly update you on further drafts and publishing (?) news. 😁
Thank you!! I’m actually so excited to read the next version haha
If you need anything else from me like typo checks or something ask away! 🙂 🙂
Do you have any publishing news btw?
You’re welcome, @Darkfire2010! I don’t have any publishing news as of yet, but I’m aiming to only send my manuscript to publishers within my country to support them. As soon as I finish draft 10 I’ll be sure to let you know. Is there a preferred way to contact you? 😊
I don’t know a lot about it, but I read a book about an author getting published and I think, based off that book, there’s a whole editing process even after you sign a deal with them
That’s a good idea 🙂
Honestly the site is the best way to contact me, so just tag me
Can and will spam you with inspirational writing quotes/ memes if needed, just so you know
Just one for now
I hope that works it’s been a really long time since I’ve posted a picture on here
To post a photo, paste the entire thing into a word document, and it’ll become a link. Select the entire thing as before and paste it into the text box.
Cuz I’m on a tablet I don’t have access to word and that’s my excuse, but thank you for explaining anyway
I’ll have to adjust my statement *send you the links to memes…[Read more]
I haven’t given up
@Darkfire2010, did you copy the address of the site itself or the image address? It won’t work if you copy the link to the entire page. Also, it doesn’t have to be word. Any document app should work. ❤️
Hahaha I know I’m meant to be concentrating here but the memes are good
The image address, I honestly don’t know what keeps going wrong, are you using the img src thing?
Okay here we go again, by the way thank you for explaining this to me, I appreciate it even if I don’t manage it…[Read more]
I’m writing so. Much. Bonus. Content. Literally, who asked for the scene where Lilith fences for the first time, where she meets Quillian and Caranina, or when Caranina and Samuel meet? No one. 😂
@Darkfire2010, you’re assuming I’ll be able to pull it off. 😂
I don’t think there should be so much pressure on the site being perfect and everyone getting along. As long as I’ve been here there’s been fights and disagreements, people who don’t get on, drama – it’s always been here. But it’s not what we remember. People don’t have to be perfect but just civil if they can help it
*nods in agreement*
I remember the bad and the good, but the good stands out more.
I actually have some more possibly controversial opinions on what we should do if we ever get open chat back. I’ve been thinking a lot about it since reading Cove’s post. I don’t want anyone to ever feel cyber bullied or like it’s a popularity content on here again. May not be realistic but I can try my best to at least attempt to prevent it and…[Read more]
I’m not saying whether or not I agree with some of those as I don’t know, but I do agree with most. We need to be better at seeing both sides, instead of just one. And better yet, learning to be diplomatic. A skill which everyone has to learn at one point or another.
Here’s the thing about the SM and deans and all that… No matter what, the…[Read more]
I agree with some. It’s important that we continue work on being more impartial in arguments, and even though the SM and deans have an important job, but I can see how popularity plays out in that. When open chat comes back, we could have a team of people who works events and various things, but all on the same level? Hope we can figure out a good…[Read more]
Hmm I like that idea Lady (btw I just realised I don’t know what to call you besides tagging you, is there a nickname for you I can use?)
Okay back on topic
I appreciate you guys all telling me your opinions on this cuz I know this is something That’s important to all of us on here. If we get open chat back in sure we’ll get a good system in place…[Read more]
Mabye. This site was created for the book series, and mabye all of the off topic stuff could be too much to handle. Orla, your point does make sense and if open chat doesn’t come back, I think we can figure out a system for everyone to stay in touch or something. And yep, you can address me as Lady 🙂

Ten facts about me:
1. My name is Orla, which is an Irish name that means golden princess. I kid you not. It’s because I have blonde hair
2. I study four subjects at AS level; maths, physics, biology and chemistry. I’m widely regarded as crazy for that particular choice of subject…[Read more]
And I didn’t know some of these… Especially what your name means XDXD
I know you love it.
I love it too.
So now I can say I know you know I know you love it.
Ahh oh no @ladyofthebooksge you know that makes more sense than what I thought it was, I hope she still sees it
I know I never tell anyone what it means but I thought what the hey. Let us not forget the original spelling Órfhlaith
And can now say I know that you know that i know that you love it and that I know you know that I know that you know…[Read more]
The original spelling is a mess. A fantastic mess. I am awed.
It took a while for that to process XD
Enjoy your tea 🙂
You just summarised the Irish language lol. Ór is gold and fhlaith is Prince in irish, don’t ask how it’s a girls name then cuz honestly idek
Hahaha I’m so glad, I tried to make it confusing XD
Thank you, I did
Thx for tagging me!
YOU READ PERCY JACKSON? IT’S SO GOOOD
*cue fangirls noises*
It’s always gonna be special to me, even though I might not be as obsessed as it later.
It’s ok! And I think it would be Athena , because I love reading and making art. I always felt really connected with her and I think I might have some qualities of her children. Or Mabye Nike, since I get overcompetitive about some things. Or I could be a legacy, or from the egyptian or Norse pantheons! How about you?
Ooh intersting! Hecate is cool, I agree. I loved the Hecate scenes in the Heroes of Olympus. And somehow my favorite character from the Egyptian pantheon is Khufu the baboon.
Also, MCGA is so good… the big banana
Yess same! Hahaha I agree he is awesome, did you read the Egyptian/Greek mini series? I’m sad there’s no more of those, I absolutely love Sadie, still laughing at the whole jelly babies thing
The big banana. The sheer amount of gems from that series, if Alex Fierro ain’t one of my favourite characters of all time I’m a big banana
Ikr? And yeah, the crossover series are epic! Wish they met more often since Sadie and Percy are pretty close, just around the New York City area. And gosh the jelly baby thing…. And I agree, Alex is awesome! Especially in a wedding dress
Yeeesss! And the reasons I want to go to New York are:
1. PERCY JACKSON
And yes, I’m reading ToA and I like it so far. The first book was kinda meh, but the books get better as the series progresses! Can’t wait for the 5th one.. And I think ToA will be one of my favorites since I love how Lester develops.
And Magnus beinh confused…[Read more]
Otis the best boiiiii
And yeah, sometimes the 7 perspective thing confused me a little, even though I really liked how Rick did Heroes of Olympus. And for Hamilton, I love the soundtrack but haven’t watched the musical. Somehow, the only song still stuck in my head is the opening song. I really do want to watch Hamilton and Wicked…. And the PJO…[Read more]
Hey, I just tagged you about the favourite memories thing, honestly I forgot about it, I did talk about some old users in pinker’s activity though
I’ll write about my favourite memories on this post, can’t do it right now but I will later, hopefully tonight
Might as well write this now
Been almost two weeks but I swear it only feels like a night since I posted this
Actually, it’s super easy for me to pick my favourite site memory, don’t get me wrong I have so many good memories, have had so many important moments, so many conversations I cherish. However, one stands out to me
It was back when i…[Read more]
I remember that post. Spirit was amazing with all those pictures. In fact, that’s what spawned the animal challenge. I’m so glad it makes you smile, as it makes me smile remembering it as well. <3
@salty12 are you there??
I thought she might be despise she favourites council posts every few months
I wish she was here.
I miss her.
She’s always been something special, though I don’t know what she’d think of where we are now.
The last time she came on was 1 month and 1 week ago.. Wow.. Maybe she does come on rarely.. 💖
I haven’t talked to her in so so long
I think she came on a few months after she left because she commented on a tribute we made to her
I haven’t seen her since then though, aside from occasional favourites. I thought if she saw this she might respond
But she might not see it
Maybe every month or so we should mention her on a post like this so it…[Read more]
Yes, we should. And just tell her little going-ons, things that we’ve seen or done. Just in case..
Remember when her mom made her leave the site (hmm sounds familiar)? We’d had that doc (before I made a new one) and I was confused….. she deleted it. She deleted after I emailed her telling her I missed her and accidentally mentioned the doc, but that was ages ago. Like 2 years ago.
Sometimes I hate myself. Sometimes we all do. That’s what it is to be human I guess
I think at times life is ****-like, where I walk though nightmares daily. Old, close friends turn their backs on me and I become nothing to them and nothing to me. But I’m lucky. This is ordinary, I don’t think I’ve ever felt something extraordinary, anything…[Read more]
I meander through the site, jumping from activity to activity, I find suffering. A lot of pain. A lot of menories, a lot of loneliness. I wish I could fix it. I wish I could bring people together
I wish I could too. But we can’t. Not really. Pain comes in too many different forms, different fights for us to beat. There’s so much of it on here. We’re young, we feel things. We know more then people expect. And that’s why we aren’t able to fight. We aren’t able to stand together, as one. No. Not at all. People underestimate the pain, or…[Read more]
sometimes the bright side is closer than we think
I wish I could fix everything, stop all the suffering, the sadness, the betrayal. I try to tell myself I can’t fix everything but my heart doesn’t listen. I’m sure that’s what’s happening with you too, so let me tell you: you don’t have to fix everything. just help where you can and bring the b…[Read more]
You guys are right
I know it too, no one can fix pain or take it away, a world without pain is a world where happiness doesn’t exist, because we wouldn’t know that pain existed if we didn’t know happiness does. If that makes sense? In the same way there s no light without darkness
This is strange but the last sentence you said Blondie reminds me…[Read more]
I can’t wait to read it if you share it
“When you need a reason to fight on, all you need to is look up” – Rough quote from Tailte from a conversation we had about the state
I asked everyone what they thought of the stars and some people said gems stitched into the deep velvety blue tapestry of the night sky, others said hot ***** of gas, some…[Read more]
I’ve been working on it a lot, I’ll share the latest draft after I finish writing this. That’s a lovely quote… I’m going to keep it close, for more than one reason. That really is a good memory. It’s funny how we view such simple things- in this case, words- so differently. If you asked me, I’d probably say stories as well. Everything is made up…[Read more]
I CAN’T FORMULATE THE WORDS TO EXPRESS WHY THAT RESONATES SO MUCH WITH ME
Its so hopeful
But so definitely not naively so, hopeful in a way that takes strength
I absolutely love this poem
I… wow, thank you. I wrote it to give hope. Hope is something we lack a lot of the time.
oh orla… *hugs* try and look up, eh? like what Tailte said… I think I’ve moved on. Kinda. High school and the crazy sh*tstorm of 2019 has taught me a lot of things that I most likely won’t forget. One of them is that you need to move on. That doesn’t mean that you should forget what already happened, ofc, but it’s just about finding acceptance…[Read more]
And there is a way. I don’t believe that way exists either sometimes, but hope exists for a reason, right? Ignore the people that ignore you. It is not worth it when they don’t give you the respect that you would’ve given them. I’m sure of it, because that is exactly what I have done to the people who’ve been acting rude to me in the past.
I cut…[Read more]
Omg Lynn!!! I haven’t seen you in so long! 😀
*hugs you back*
You’re right and.. that’s what I did. At the time.
It feels like an eternity since I wrote this but it was only three weeks. I broke down one night because I couldn’t take it anymore, and that’s when I decided it was time to move on. So I sat with new people and was polite to…[Read more]
I just realised you might not even know who the she I’m referring to is, I never even specified in this post.
I was gonna go reply to a bunch of other stuff tonight but after unloading that I honestly can’t face it. So I’m gonna have to talk to you tomorrow hopefully 🙁
It’s night here so I bid you good night 💛
And thank you
Life does keep you guessing- things tend to change in the blink of an eye.
You gotta always at least try to smile
There’s no point in misery forever
Is the logic
Undoubtedly it does, it always does somehow when you least expect it to
Nothing is permanent but change
Not all change is good but not all is bad either
yo that was some deep **** that made me think really hard about life
Do you ever just super randomly have a memory flung in your face?
Hey now if anyone ever asks you that again you can say yes, both literally and figuratively
Fair enough. I have to give it to you, though I doubt anyone will ever ask if I’ve literally had a memory flung in my face.
*literally flings a memory at your face*
Hahaha you never know! Now we’re both covered in that unlikely event
If someone irl asked me that I have no idea how I’d even attempt to explain to them how I’ve literally had a memory flung in my face
Hello person in my activity
Nice to see you, have a biscuit, and please sit.
So, I have a question for you
I want to ask you to describe my personality.
Basically, I don’t know who I am. My personality is a bunch of question marks to me and a whole lot of contradictions. I’ve had a lot of negative descriptions and a lot of positive des…[Read more]
Aha Orla I’m not the best person to judge someone but I’ll do my best to describe Orla as Orla 🙂
You are Irish
Lost (well you said so sooo)
A lovely person to talk to
Bibliophile (not all genres like the *mature* ones)
Loved (by us… ALWAYS)
Prokaryote? Idk my science terms I’m so sry
I don’t know why I feel so emotional reading this, I don’t know. I guess I just feel loved
It is strange trying to see yourself through another set of eyes so thank you for helping meloved
Love you Lynn
Couldn’t find where you mentioned me and ended up here, and I feel like a horrible person for correcting you, evilerruler, in the fact that you just called Orla here a bacterium. It’s Eukaryote. Sorry again. Insufferable know it all speech ended. I do it a lot, sorry. Now for the question.
So… your personality?
You make sense. That sounds lik…[Read more]
@ms-granger totally fine!! science was and will NEVER be my strong subject. i’d be even more embarrassed if nobody told me my mistake. goodness gracious, i’d feel so ashamed i don’t even wanna imagine… >.<
Hahahahaha thanks. The only reason I remember it is that EUkaryote means YEU or you. Glad I didn’t kill the mood too miserably.
If I do an awful job please don’t kill me *hides*
Strong (Don’t you dare refute this statement, I have my reasons)
Fellow Hamilton Lover

I might do a very bad job so be warned XD
Santa but in the kindest way possible
Woohoo I’m Dumbledore and Santa 🎅 😀 😀 😀
You’re so kind Blondie, thank you so much ❤
I am not the person to respond to this, but I will anyways.
To me, you are…
You have a bit of a temper, but you’re good at controlling it
Creator (you create a lot with your words)
Silent until needed
Still somehow a big sister to me
And to go way back to that challenge.
If you were a book,…[Read more]
Thank you to all of you for taking the time to read this and to write about how you see me and taking the time to think about it too, and you were all so nice my ego will need deflating
I’m really lucky to know you guys
I’m soo gonna come and read the stuff you guys said whenever I’m having a bad day, it’ll never fail to make me smile
Always, Orla. I’m so glad to help 😊😊 Especially because every word of what I said was true. ❤️ Love you, my nocturnal buddy
I'm so lucky to know you. Thank you Orla, for everything.
Happy birthday Adelle/ Mae Spiritguard/ Spirit!!!!!
*confetti explodes everywhere* *fireworks light up the sky*
Hope you have a great day 🙂
and that I got the right one
Thank you for being you
Awwww thank you! This really made my day (:
And yes, you got it right.
