I know I haven’t spoken much and there are questions for me, but I’m not quite sure whether I’m ready to fully return. I’d to have a talk just between the two of us, and explain.
First of all, did I leave? Not entirely. I still conversed with Spirit, while contemplating what to decide, and read the comments on mine, yours, and…[Read more]
So as you read this post, I have one request: please don’t tell the Army about that I said anything. I’d like everyone to know when I’m ready because there’s a chance I might not come back.
I chose to write my goodbye that way as an alternative to the other idea I had, which I’m not sure I could find the words for, nor would the tone be right, with this essentially being an experiment. Or if I asked what the Army thinks of me, there was no way to know if their responses were honest.
There’s many times where I have almost ended up leaving for good, but I just kept trying to stay, and that helped form the question.
The wait was fine, don’t worry about it. I wish I could describe you, I don’t know what to say.
At school, I often come off as anti-social, I don’t mean to. I just haven’t had very many friends for a long time, and I’m an introvert. However, when the classmates that sit next to me saw sketches I had drawn, they were certainly surprised by my…[Read more]
One boy in third-grade thought I was “unfriendly, creepy, and weird-because only boys are supposed to like ninjas”
Is it strange that, although I have only had crushes on boys, I’m more likely to call a girl beautiful than a boy handsome?
Well, as you likely already know, there’s definitely a difference between aesthetic attraction and romantic attraction. Do you admire someone but not imagine going out with them? That’s aesthetic (this and *** attraction aren’t necessarily the same). Or do you want to go out with someone but not do ****** things with them? That’s romantic.
In my art class, we were assigned to replicate a picture in oil pastels. Unknowingly, two other students had chosen the same image. Both of theirs looks fairly the same, dark purple lavender with light and dark brown trees. the trees in mine were black with silver bark detailing and the lavender was various shades of purple, green, and blue. Both…[Read more]
In the charcoal portrait I drew, the girl doesn’t look perfect. Although she has scars on her face, her hair is slightly messy, and her lips look a little dry, her eyes are amazing. Unlike the other portraits, they’re filled with life and are so expressive. She’s not pure innocence, but the warmth remains.
The general outline, to get the proportions right, was based from a picture, but the scars addition and lips and eyes changes were my own idea.
The changes seem to actually enhance her beauty, rather than take away from it.
I’ve been sketching aliens. The character designs are simple, just a few lines, but the range of emotions from every one is stunning. In the past week, I’ve drawn countless.
First I start with one character. Then I explore just how many different expressions I can imagine for them, using different angles, afterwards capturing the small variances and in-betweens. I might draw around twenty for one creature
I’ve drawn ‘edgy’ ones, with short, choppy dark hair sometimes masking their eyes
It was sort of light-hearted, but this the same person who, on a day I had hardly slept, said, ‘You look mentally unstable’.
Sometimes when I’m really tired I sometimes space out for moments here and there, and the dry humor comes out
An exchange between my tablemates one day:
‘Can I borrow a pen?’
[Pen is passed across the table]
‘Does this have ink in it?’
Me: ‘No, because he replaced the ink with prune juice when nobody was looking.’
[A moment of silence before the three of them begin to laugh]
It seems cruel for one’s eyes to be so beautiful if they can hardly see with them
Sometimes my eyes are grayish blue, other times blue mixed with green, or I might see an amber ring around the pupil
My eyelashes are long and black, but I’ve had bluish shadows around my eyes since I was eight.
I don’t have freckles. Though I have been complimented on my pale skin and the rosiness in my cheeks, I’m covered in scars (though for the last part I’ve only myself to blame).
“..You’d actually be quite pretty if it weren’t for those scratches…” “…. You’ve ruined your beautiful face with the scarring…” At times remarks like that still sting.
Think of Harry Potter! He had a scar on his forehead because he survived a killing curse from Voldemort.
*Darkfire and Kittywolf stare at me*
*i look at my feet*
Uh, sorry. Ha ha. I wasn’t supposed to **** in, was I? Um, am I allowed to join? I can leave if you guys want…
But I gave myself those scars. I had to wash blood off my hands. I had to bear the pain again and again. What good came out of it?
Once I intentionally pricked my fingers on thorns from roses…. don’t ask why
One time I discovered my wrist was bleeding and I didn’t know it was or felt anything. His exact words were, ‘Who would slit their wrists for fun?’
Like I made myself bleed almost every day for the fun of it- right.
That’s why people endure all the schist they have to go through-it’s fun!
Or where a anti- women’s healthcare person isn’t put in charge of women’s healthcare? That’s a shock…
Word of advice: Even if you get in trouble for it, throwing things at people you hate more than anything feels a jillion billion times better than trying to ignore them and get your anger out by cutting paper.
That’s happened to me before.
I have a confession to make. Sometimes I still scratch myself. Although I know what I said, it’s difficult to not every now and then claw my skin to ****** shreds
They’re not infected. Of course the obvious answer is, ‘Here’s something new to try: HOW ABOUT YOU QUIT DOING IT.’
‘You’ve come past it now, you’re a stronger person for it now.’
The truth is a little messier than that…
If it’s too much, let me know. I simply want the truth. That’s very caring of you; I just needed someone to talk to who’d understand.
Either I’m only repeatedly told to stop, and people imply that my scars are ****, or is simply brushed over: ‘Don’t worry, we all go through that phase.’
Once when I was five or six, instead of playing with the four other kids at the playdate I spent hours alone in the bathroom, chatting with my reflection.
In role playing, I’d be the second-in-command, who could stand in for the captain
Star Trek, pirates, ninjas… If there was a leader, I’d rank just below them
I’ll be extremely lucky if I ever end up with a boyfriend. Not only will he go through my thorough interrogation process, but also my family’s
2? No they’d have to go through several *separate* interrogations
This is what our conversation reminded me of:
I don’t have a first love or ex, but I have turned many down.
People at school kept trying to ship me, even though I’m clearly not interested.
Three classmates had a friend battle as to which is worthy to partner with me for archery:
1: [sticks out a hand for me to shake]: ‘Come on. We work so great together.’
2: [tries putting an arm around my shoulders]: ‘But I was her first friend.’
3: [quietly]: ‘The two of us talk almost every day. I’m pretty sure we know each other better than you two do.’
1. 2 I felt like was trying to say she owned me, and I wanted to give 1 a chance.
3 is the one that I’ve talked with the most, but we only do so or partner a couple times a week, giving each other space (does that make sense?)
A) I’ve never talked with myself in the mirror, but I talk with Berry a lot–sometimes telepathically, sometimes out loud. We especially like talking out loud. Berry likes the acknowledgement of being talked to out loud just like a non-imaginary person, and I can’t help finding delight in people staring at me like I’m crazy. I’m not sure why that…[Read more]
Not only are kids wanting to help build the Lego guillotine, some want to test it, as in see if it works. On them.
At a Legoland Discovery, there’s a 4D theater. When there’s water onscreen you feel the droplets
If you’re watching ***** Wonka and the Chocolate Factory you might smell the candy. 4D and 5D, as I’ve noticed, are used interchangeably for motion (involving the seats) and sensory effects. 6D and 7D might just be marketing gimmicks.

A circular one had you in vibrating seats, blood splattered on you, and the warm breaths of the creature you could not see
A warning outside the attraction’s entrance alerted guests that it was intense and not intended for children under the age of 12, despite however its height requirement is 48″ designed for guests.
It opened briefly for previews on December 16, 1994, on the site of the former Mission to Mars attraction, but was ordered closed on January 12, 1995 for retooling by then-Disney CEO Michael Eisner who deemed it was not intense enough. It opened officially on June 20, 1995 as part of the Magic Kingdom’s New Tomorrowland.
*If that’s ancient, then what do you call things far older*
Sorry about that. Tone and the way words would be said is a bit hard to read
For example, in The Real Ghostbusters, depending on the delivery Peter Venkman’s lines can actually be funny and clever quips, but said another way he doesn’t seem to understand his jokes
Some do a serviceable job but they just don’t sound much like how we’d imagine the character would. Garfield’s an example here.
That, too. Sometimes they have the right person, but they don’t use the character in the right places or actually give them good lines to say
Somehow the Cat in the Hat became what you don’t want to see in the mirror in the middle of the night

What do you hope the results of this might be?
*Somewhere on a list of side effects*
‘If you suffer from these symptoms, contact your doctor.’
Are they accustomed to beyond the grave communication?
Perhaps after one has crossed over their former ailment isn’t nearly as concerning
I haven’t seen the movie of the Cat in the Hat. I’m thinking I really shouldn’t, huh?
I do love Seussical the Musical, though.
I reeeeally wish me and the rest of the cast from camp this past summer could perform it one more time…even if it wasn’t very fun rehearsing, it was LOTS of fun actually doing it…

Not unless you want to see a version that shouldn’t be associated with the book in any way
That version could venture into the horror genre if he wanted to
*looks at the book*
“Wait, why does he look like a cat?”
Because he’s a cat.
“No, that’s not what he looks like. He’s supposed to be scary, and weird, and constantly out of breath.”
“And why is it all in rhyme?”
Because it’s Dr. Seuss; everything he does is in rhyme.
“No, he’s only supposed to rhyme once in awhile. And where’s all the…[Read more]

At some point this past Tuesday, two people were talking near me and they ended up on the topic of certain foods and whether or not they were good. I forget exactly what foods they were talking about, but in the end I blurted out, ‘I do not like green eggs and ham myself.’
Would you eat them with a box?
Would you eat them in a fox?
Would you like them
In a mouse?
Would you like them
With a house?
Hmm, where to reboot the conversation, where to reboot…
“Oh, another reboot? You know, even though they say third time’s the charm, it’s always the third that starts to go downhill.”

As for the scratching, sometimes I still feel tempted to but actually end up doing it only every once in a while and far less severely
If I start doing it absentmindedly usually I’m able to recognize what’s happening and stop
Thank you for listening. As for your last sentence, I wish the same to you.
It seems that all my posts from within the last almost two years vanished. Have you seen this happen with other activities?
None since Open Chat was removed. The once moving sadness in my poems became lackluster. There was neither intrigue nor depth in wallowing in self-pity to the point of redundancy. Anyone can recycle glorified whining.
Maybe I’ve been taking it too seriously. Not every set of verses needs to make a statement. A poem could be a candle, paint splatters, sand, handwriting, curtains, coins or cracks in the ground
Is the candle slender and new, or melted wax that will vanish soon?
A steadfast companion by your side through the night or a sprite whose burns hurt like bites?
Is it small, giving heat and light or a devouring beast it takes a squadron to fight?
For the flame flickering on a candle could grow to be more than you alone can handle
The candle wasn’t supposed to be dark.
It’s hard to spread hope. Do we feel happy or temporarily distracted in escapism?
What could be gleaned from the candle?
You can’t control people? Despite your good intentions, their reactions are their own? Pushing them too much under your thumb either extinguishes or builds resentment?
For protection, one confines the flame and puts it out to prevent it from burnout or becoming too powerful. The wax selflessly gives itself away with no thanks in return. A thought that has been proven true is, “If you push someone too far, they will eventually push back.” The flame’s burn reflects this.
Sometimes, in a crisis there’s nothing you can do. You desperately try to solve it to keep away helplessness but your efforts aren’t enough. What good are tears? What good is the inability to fight it? What good is being forced to just wait and hope? The past is permanent, the present is a hurricane and the future is nebulous. Just because you can…[Read more]
While we look to the future, the past and present may still hurt. We have to acknowledge and work with them to build a future. Progress isn’t always linear- it has its ups and downs.
I tended to bottle up my hurt. Tension built inside before eventually boiling over in anger concealing worry and sadness. To avoid “throwing a tantrum,” I would try…[Read more]
Though talking with a nonjudgmental trusted adult helped get it off my chest, I still bottle up to a degree. Like my scratching compulsion, coping habits don’t just disappear.
How did Beatrix become an Ever? How is she that Good? What are her redeeming moments? She’s arrogant, and somewhat of an airhead. She’s human, but seems a lot like a Never, despite her high rankings.
Isn’t that kind of what Sophie did at the start of book 1?
I think we saw one side of her, the side that she wants to be loved, and so she felt Sophie and Agatha as a threat, so she bullied them. I think there is a nice side of Beatrix somewhere, like she saved Aggie in book 1 from the rats, IDK maybe it’s just me! 😉
I don’t want to sound mean, but, WHY ARE PEOPLE QUESTIONING CHARACTERS PLACEMENTS!!! ESPECIALLY WITH TEDROS! I totes agree that Beatrix can be very very mean but Soman put all of the characters in their schools for a reason right?
At the very beginning of book one, she was really nice to Agatha.
Beatrix might have been mean..and rude..and fake..and annoying..and–THE POINT IS she might have been all those things, but she wasn’t EVIL. She didn’t turn into a witch like Sophie, and when it came down to it, Beatrix fought for Good. As mean as she was, I do not think that she belongs in the School for Evil at all. She is Good – she just has a…[Read more]
She expected to go to the school for good and have a great time learning how to be a princess, but instead, she fought in two wars. At the beginning of book one, she was nice to Agatha, so maybe being at the school for good changed her. She still is pure good, no matter how bad things got for her.
Even though the Entrance exam says I’m an Ever (76.6% Good), I feel like I’d be a Never. Just curious, anyone else feel like this?
Was ‘feel and kinda act like an never even though I’m and an never’ to be ironic and on purpose?
Actually, it’s supposed to be a Never instead of ‘an never’.
Well did you take the exam honestly? If you did, then what you got is correct.
I took it twice honestly. And I know the answer is correct. Sometimes it just doesn’t feel like it is.
yeah and I know but I sometimes do IDK why I just do feel like that
It might just be guilt, it may just be denial, but at times I really feel like I’m more of a Never than an Ever.
Even if I was proven innocent I may still feel guilty.
The court of life.
Even you were proven imnocent and you still feel guilty that means your a Ever, because you feel bad for someone else. If your a Never you would’nt even care.
There’s more than one scenario:
I might be a little nervous, but convince myself that I have solid evidence and that that judge and jury will make the right verdict.
The opposition makes a good case and I’m trying to keep it together.
I get called to speak in my defense. I civilly present my case and state the facts and use evidence to back it up.…[Read more]
Yes lying isn’t good, but in the end you finally noticed what you did wrong and felt bad about it, and wanted a second chance to changed your bad deed.
So if you got wrongly charged and did not commit the crime, your innocent. If you were a eyewitness and got frame you should have told what really happen. And when you found out that you did commit the crime but didn’t know it(hows that even possible, did you hit your head and forgot) then go back and tell them the truth. All you have to do is…[Read more]
I almost knew I would be Evil. Then I got Good and was really surprised. Although I am about 60/40, and whenever I take the test it changes a bit.

Forgiving mean being a doormat?) and once I actually let…[Read more]

i dont like being a damsle-in-distress ethier i despise pink every one says all girls are girly well i am not i dont like romance books and i took a test on what carector i am, and it says that i am 95% agatha and 5% hester but i feel like if my freind took it she would be 99% hester and 1% sopie
@kittywolf424 I’m not exactly pleased about getting 52% to 60% Good. I was surprised I wasn’t 50-50, really. I mean, I know I’m not Evil. I don’t care in the least about power, and my conscience would not let me kill somebody I was angry at. But I definitely would kick them. Or possibly use my hair on them. And I’ve broken hundreds of rules in my…[Read more]
Fairytopia and its two sequels…Barbie In A Mermaid Tail, 1 and 2…that one with the princess school, I forget what it’s called…
If they did it would be cool. But there was that time in Toy Story 3 when she got Ken to reveal critical information by ripping up all his clothes. It was great!
If Hansel,and Gretel are old, then how is Hester young? She had to have been born before the witch died, which was when Hansel and Gretel were teenagers or whatever.
Yeah I noticed that too! Hester can remember when her mother died. It wasn’t that long ago, but Hester’s only aged a few years, but hansel and gretel are old! It’s crazy!
I mean, unless Hansel and Gretel did some weird time thing that caused both of them to rapidly age or they discovered a wormhole that allowed them to go to some other world or somewhere and spent decades there. When they came back to their place and time, it looked like only a few years had passed. Wait, I think we have a theory!
Or maybe Hester only looks, thinks, and remembers a few years, SHE’S secretly old! Dun Dun DUN!
Maybe the witch never died when they threw her in the oven. She maybe survived and died latter another way.
Like in ever after high, when they thought Raven Queens mother died but she was still alive.
Or before the witch died she made a spell to create Hester in the future. Maybe……. I dunno
:0 All of these comments have left me speechless
Also, women cannot have children after forty-five, and the witch is old when she is killed by Hansel and Gretel. Recent surveys say that most people classify old as 68 or older. So by the time Hansel and Gretel killed the old witch, Hester should have been 23 at LEAST. Weird.
What if Hort dated Sophie while at the same time hanging at with Dot? Not that he would be a cheating piece of ****, but he would tell Sophie and Dot each that he sees and has a relationship with other girls . Would it be okay with you readers?
Haha XD that would be hilarious tho I’m not in a great mood because of, you know, the election. Can’t celebrate and be cheerful. *sighs* I’m gonna stop mentioning politics and ruining everyone’s day. 🙂
That would be sinning. I would NOT be okay with that.
That he’s friends with other girls and is honest about it?
NUH UH Hort! U ether go with Dot (coz I ship them) Or yourself, ***!
Of course it would be okay with me! 🙂 Now Sophie has another reason to zap him! I’d just have to sit back, read, nd “watch” while Hort turns into what his name really means. A frog with warts:)
Sophie: Hort, sweetie, I’d just love to kiss you back into a human, but no way am ever kissing those slimy lips of yours.
Hort: *sighs* And why not?
Sophie: Well I might get warts, and my lips would be all slimy, and whatever skin diseases I’d have and there’s all these problems with frog skin…………
Anything new here?
Do you think Hot (Hort and Dot) will happen?
That’s what I thought at first but now I kinda think Sophie and Hort.
If the fingerglow color mean anything, think about it.
Tedros and Agatha’s glows are both gold. They are a couple in the books. Sophie’s is hot pink.
Rafal’s was black.
Raphie wasn’t meant to be.
Hort’s fingerglow is blue.
Dot’s is also blue
I have a theory that Hot will be exist.
Plus I think that they deserve each other.
*cough* I mean…[Read more]
Welp, in book three, Hort was thinking about how he couldn’t talk to Dot because she was kinda his fellow loser. So, he might be a tiny bit interested in her…
Yeah, hort likes sophie.
There were a couple hints in the handbook at a hophie ship in book 4 so i don’t think hot is that likely
I think HORT and Dot will make a good couple but I also like HORT and Sophie. I’m so torn

The School for Good and Evil and The Land of Stories are AMAZING books. Does everyone agree with me?
Yes the SGE is amazing but I haven’t read The Land Of Story’s so I can’t comment on that book.
Yes! I love them both soooo MUCH! I like SGE beter tho.
