12. Ronald Weasley / 24. Transfiguration / 42. Parsel tongue

12. Ronald Weasley: Talk about a friend you once/still have. I have this group of friends I met when I moved in 1st grade that I still talk to. One of them became an art teacher, another is on her way to becoming a nun, and the other two just recently got married. I’ve always been on the outskirts of this group, but it was nice to grow up with them and see how they’ve all turned out. The nun bit was a surprise, though.

24. Transfiguration: If you could be an animagus, what form would you take? DEFINITELY some kind of bird. I would absolutely love to fly.

42. Parsel tongue: What language would you love to speak? I think it would be fascinating to learn some kind of Scandinavian language, but also maybe what the Celts used to speak. That’d be awesome.

That’s amazing! I’ve had a few people leave comments like that recently, and I keep thinking “wow, that’s a lot to read in so little time!”
and then I think about the story I’m rereading, which is over 100 chapters long, and I completely understand.

six word poem 7/25/13

atonguewithbutsixwords:

The sky’s the limit?
How claustrophobic.

For the writer's ask meme! #2, 10, and 50, if you please!

Alrighty! I already answered number 2 for royal-keli, so I’ll answer 10 and 50.

10: What’s your biggest writer pet-peeve? One of my biggest pet peeves is when something suddenly comes in to save the day. Example: the end of Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle. The main character is just experiencing tragedy after tragedy, and then suddenly, there’s (spoiler) socialism. And suddenly, this character is okay. It’s like if a character suddenly discovered religion, and he’s immediately changed. I don’t know, it just makes the rest of the story seem pointless. Deus ex machina may seem like a cool thing, but it just seems like a cop-out. I’m not a fan.

50: If you could live in any fictional world, which would it be? Ooooh, that’s a tough one! I might have to go with the Harry Potter world. I have always really liked the idea of magic, and while I am not a fanatic fan of the books, J. K. Rowling creates a captivating world that would be absolutely a joy to live in (but without, you know, all of the Death Eaters and all).

02: What was your favorite book growing up? // 22: Do you start with characters or plot? // 39: What’s the weirdest story idea you’ve ever had?

02. What was your favorite book growing up? I don’t know if I had a particular favorite, but I did rather enjoy almost everything Avi wrote (Poppy, Poppy & Rye, etc). I remember going through the entire selection of books Avi had written in my school library. Great books.

22. Do you start with characters or plot? I’m going to go with my own stories for this, since it’s kind of obvious with fanfiction. I think it differs for each kind of story. I’ll get a general plot line in my head, and then I’ll start coming up with characters. The plot will then shape itself around these characters so I don’t have to adapt the character to the plot.

but I do have a lot of characters that I love very much. I actually started writing a story with three characters I had used in past stories. It was pretty character driven for a while. But I still adore those characters, and will probably hold a very close place to my heart forever.

39. What’s the weirdest story idea you’ve ever had? Hmm…you know, I really don’t know. There is this one idea that I really want to do something with, but I can only picture it as an animation. And considering my animating skills are basically nonexistent, I don’t know if it’ll ever come to light. It was something I came up with a few years ago that has to do with suicide and rebirth, and I really do still want to do something with it.

Chapter 25 is up!

Cecil’s birthmarks changes shape and movement with his emotions - they flare up when he’s flustered or angry, hide under clothing when he’s scared or embarrassed, move rapidly when he’s excited, softer shapes for good feelings and rougher shapes for bad ones etc.

He’s kinda self-conscious about them since it’s like wearing your heart on your sleeve, but Carlos thinks they’re pretty (and also scientifically fascinating).

This is actually a really fantastic take on the three eyes, tattoo Cecil I see all over. I really enjoy it a lot. Because of the motion in the tattoos, I could almost feel his blush heating up. It’s a great image.
