@arian2 So, I’m working on Edward’s bio, but I’m having a bit of trouble wading through all the Alexandrite/Cheshire/Edward world-building you’ve written. Would it be okay if you wrote a brief overview of what your current plan for Edward’s life is? Also, here’s the doc where I’m writing it:…[Read more]
Well, basically, as the youngest Alexanrine child, he was still under the protection of the Citadel. This meant that Astrid was able to freeze him in an enchantment that would preserve him for centuries, after which the enchantment would be partially broken. Edward would then re-enter reality, and live to the age of sixteen, before the second half…[Read more]
If you’ll remember
At the end of my last POV I left it hanging with Selene and Alex just spotting the Malachite army in the distance, right after the angsty drama with the monster. What I think should happen is that Selene and Alex hide from them in the shrubs (this can lead to angst as they watch the army pass) and…[Read more]
Ok, cool. And maybe Selene and Alexander could head to Rosemarie’s aunt’s house afterwards? She’s heading there anyway, and she wouldn’t be able to just let two fashion emergencies wander off into the woods unmakovered.
Okay but like think this whole think through in all its angsty glory
Essie Rosie would be really fun and lighthearted for Selene and she’d really like Rosemarie’s perspective on everything
But Alexander would be the only person who like really understands Selene’s ptsd
@JoAnn: okay, so I have a request. Would it be possible to mention the fact that we RP in a group somewhere in the RP Level 2 forum description? It’s just that (due partially to the fact that levels 0 and 1 RP individually with limited rules) there are many people who come onto the forum and start posting their own stories without posting a bio or…[Read more]
…Yeah. Someone misinterpreted your information, and she called you something rude…
Yeah, I agree. It would definitely help us out a lot and save any misunderstandings!
That’s okay! The new description is great, thank you so much for updating it, I think it will really help!
I’m just going to rant in somewhat incoherent bullet points
– I WILL NEVER, EVER, EVER BE OVER HASTRA
– OR CALLA
– And that scene with Maxim and Emira and Rhy :””'(
– those Holland flashbacks AGH
– With Talya and with his brother they were so depressing :”'(
– I was really happy with the ending for Holland tho it was perfect
– And…[Read more]
I’m really sad but like really happy??? the ending was so satisfying but hOLLAND NOOOOOOOO HIS REDEMPTION ARC WAS 11/11 I JUST ARGH I AM NOW A MEMBER OF THE VOSJIK PROTECTION SKWAA 2K17
Also, Rhy my poor daling argh the character development was amazing but it had me really depressed and aLUCARD YES MAY THEY BE…[Read more]
I’m so glad I can talk to you about SoM. No one I know in real-life has read the series. :/
A bunch of my friends like it, but only because I made them read it ha
SoM isn’t a popular series in the Philippines, and though I’ve been trying to get my friends to read it, they’ve resisted my efforts. Hmph.
@JoAnn Aah, sorry if we accidentally spoiled something!! ADSOM is so good though, it’s one of my favourite series.
I’ll keep that in mind next time about swear words — I figured it would be okay because I wasn’t actually posting on a forum and I censored it, but I understand.
hey hey hey so you know how we were talking about the alexander-stabbing-selene plan (they become friends and romantically involved, then alex gets possessed, the spirit tries to kill selene and alex manages to overpower it but can’t stop it from severely wounding her)
well what if
after selene is infuriated (she thinks he has been…[Read more]
I thought of it on the way home and figured you would enjoy it 🙂
(but we can’t do this until you POV…. and we build their relationship… and more time passes in-world….)
UGHH I’LL DO IT LATER
I actually have swim practice in like fifteen minutes 🙁 I hate swim practice ugh
If you want, you can go ahead and POV because I have a serious case of writer’s block and I can’t for the life of me figure out what to write.
I won’t be able to POV until Thursday or Friday (I have an English assignment due tomorrow and a science test on Thursday) so if you still haven’t POVed by the time that I have motivation/time to POV, I will.
(To be honest, though, I /would/ rather you POV before I write another one; I’m not very good at POVing twice in a row. What exactly are you…[Read more]
So, Alexander and Selene are about to go to the Groom Rooms, and Selene told him she would explain the ~suspicious revelation~ she learned about Edward Gavaldon while they walked there. On the way there, they can run into some other student/s (that Selene knows? It depends which characters are available) and, though Selene and Alex are…[Read more]
WHAT DID YOU THINK OF CROOKED KINGDOM
have your opinions on any characters/ships changed
did you sob at matthias’ death
wasn’t the wesper kiss amazing
I THOUGHT IT WAS GOOD
I STILL DON’T REALLY LIKE KAZ OR WHATEVER THE SHIP NAME IS FOR KAZ AND INEJ
NINA IS STILL MY FAVE BECAUSE SHE LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE ME
WESPER IS 10/10
I DIDN’T CRY WHEN MATTIAS DIED BECAUSE I DIDN’T REALLY CARE ABOUT HIM WHOOPS
Clare read CK before me, and was like “should I tell you who dies?” and I was like “NO” but the whole book I was like “someone’s gonna die. someone’s gonna die.” so I wasn’t that upset when Matthias died because I was mostly like “thank god it wasn’t Wylan”. What really made me sad was not Matthias, but Nina, because she was so sad…[Read more]
WAIT THAT WAS YOU WHO WROTE THAT?? I WAS SCROLLING THROUGH THE TAG AND I SAW IT BUT IT DIDN’T REGISTER THAT IT WAS YOU WHO WROTE IT
YES WYLAN IS A RAY OF SUNSHINE I LOVE HIM
ALSO I TOOK YOUR LOCKWOOD & CO QUIZ AND GOT LUCY
RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU’RE SURPRISED
*NOBODY RAISES THEIR HAND*
I WROTE IT AND LEIGH REBLOGGED IT AND IT GOT A TON OF NOTES AND IT’S KIND OF OVERWHELMING TBH
ALSO HAVE YOU NOTICED A PATTERN
I RECOMMEND SOMETHING TO YOU, YOU DO ONE BACK
IT’S MY TURN HERE I RECOMMEND HEATHERS YOU SHOULD WATCH IT HERE YOU GO
I KEEP /WANTING/ TO WATCH IT BECAUSE THERE’S A LOT ON MY DASH ON TUMBLR
BUT THEN I FORGET
AND I’M LIKE ‘2 HOURS OF SPARE TIME? I’LL JUST BINGE-WATCH BUZZFEED VIDEOS INSTEAD’
BUT I HAVE NEXT WEEK OFF FOR CHRISTMAS BREAK AS WELL SO I’LL TRY MY BEST TO WATCH IT
*whispers* now go POV for Selene

I finished it last night! I SWEAR TO GOD IF LOCKLYLE DOESN’T HAPPEN BY THE END OF THE SERIES…
I actually found this book to be not as good as the other ones. I felt as if it were mainly filler, answering questions about the last book and setting up things for the next. Jonathan Stroud mainly used this one to develop relationships in…[Read more]
a) Really? It’s definitely my favourite so far. I didn’t find that it was filler, though I agree that a lot of it was set up for the last one. The thing is, I think the others were each focused on one individual piece of information that (eventually) will lead to the Problem being solved. For example, the Whispering Skull had a bunch of…[Read more]
That definitely surprises me. This one was easily my least favorite of the bunch (I still loved it, but not quite as much as the rest). It was great to reunite with all the characters again, and Lucy is MY SOUL.
TCS definitely had a different feel to it. It was a lot darker, and you could tell that Stroud was setting things up for the big finale.…[Read more]
That is kind of true… TCS was kind of like the glue that linked the previous three together, to set it up for the big finale.
THE LOCKLYLE THOUGH.
“Then I realized he was still holding my hand.”
“‘I think you keep me safe, if anything.’ Right then, the cape wasn’t the only thing that kept me warm.”
“Then Lockwood was beside me, pulling me to…[Read more]
IT’S EVEN BETTER IF YOU IMAGINE LUCY WEARING THE NECKLACE LOCKWOOD GAVE HER
S A M E T H O U G H
I feel like he’ll kiss Lucy and Locklyle will become canon, then he’ll sacrifice himself in some way and the Problem will end. And I will die
Also; “Oh, Lockwood, Shmockwood. He’s more drawn to death than the rest of us. You know that. He won’t be lasting long.” – The skull in TCS
I mean, if you’ve read the Bartimaeus Trilogy, you’ll know that Stroud’s definitely more than capable of killing Lockwood… *cries*
I haven’t read Bartemaeus, but I’VE HEARD THINGS 🙁
part of me is like “maybe he’s just faking us all out and he isn’t gonna kill locky…?”
but the other part of me’s like “DEATH DEATH ANGST KILL HIM KILL THEM ALL ANNNNGGGSSSSTTT”
to be fair, I was SOBBING VIOLENTLY AT 1AM when I read Hollow Boy and it makes you think he had died
🙁 🙁 🙁
My soul will literally be crushed if Lockwood dies, tbh.
You should read Bartimaeus!! It’s really good, though the ending is… bittersweet.
If Lockwood doesn’t die, though, I think Kipps is gonna die.
so I found this really good bencutio playlist on 8tracks (it’s here if you want to listen to it: http://8tracks.com/carsondances/if-love-be-rough-with-you)
for example, one of the songs it includes is ‘far too young to die’ (which is actually PERFECT if you think about it)
and even though I’ve acted out Mercutio’s death scene 500 times…[Read more]
So, to determine what will happen next with Thanatos and Catherine, I think we need to determine how Thanatos will react to Catherine’s “I-need-you-to-leave-the-bandits-with-me” thing. And, Thanatos being Thanatos, what we need to determine to figure that out is what Catherine has that he could want. All I can think of is ‘her’ bow and…[Read more]
I already know how he’ll react, and he’s already agreed to help. I just don’t know where to go from there. Thanatos isn’t very into blantent betrayed, and he doesn’t put much value into physical items…
Okay. Um, Catherine could try and take their “friendship” further, and Thanatos, sensing that this was escalating towards him putting too much effort into trying to stay on her good side and “help” her, could break it off? (this could involve lots of pain, physically or emotionally, for Catherine. Yay)
Maybe the whole escape thing could come to and end when the Leader gets an anonymous tip that Catherine is trying to leave?
