    So hey, have some virtual paper with scribbles on it! :-,
    Oh, warning for those who don’t like to see pictures of the characters in a book before they read it so they have time to formulate their own mental images. I did Six of Crows fanart. ^<^"

    Sophia from Fire Emblem: Heroes, plus scenery with shading! 😮

      So apparently you have to add .jpg on the end of each so they’ll work, but if I do that, the images themselves end up embedded in the post and I didn’t want that. Bluh. >_>

    So! I have a post prompt that I thought of finally!

    Prompt 2/18/17: When was the last time you wrote? Creatively, I mean, not for school or a rant (because goodness knows at least I write out my existential crises and analytical angst way more than I should).

    I actually got writing last week, on a project that had been sitting untouched for… at least a year now, only because I happened to open Google Docs to work on an essay and there it was, still waiting for me. I was eager enough to procrastinate and inspired enough by the reading I’d been doing to motivate me to first write a pre-bio (it’s complicated) for one of the characters, and then to add a little bit onto the project. By now, I’ve gotten a whopping page and a half done. :p (Really I just want this fight scene to be done so I can get the plot moving again. x_x) But at least I’m writing again! Ooh, and drawing! I’ll post some of my art in a minute in case you all want to see. :3

      i write creatively pretty much every night before i go to sleep, either fanfic (i’m EMBARRASSING) or about my own original characters who i’ve been writing about for like three years now just placing them in different universes and seeing how they cope
      these writings live primarily on the Notes app in my phone in a folder in locked notes because god forbid anyone i know in real life finds and read them and it’s kind of gotten to the point where i can’t get to sleep if i don’t write a good amount and if (as is happening a bit these days) my phone is charging outside my bedroom for whatever reason, i lie in bed thinking about it until i fall asleep
      this system or whatever it is is pretty good, i’ve written quite a few 10 to 15 thousand word things which is satisfying. what ISN’T fun is accidentally deleting them then permanently deleting them from recently deleted instead of restoring them. which happened to one of my favourites 😥

        What fanfics do you write? Do you ever publish them?
        Anyway, that sounds cool.
        And aww that’s so annoying!! Did you re write it?

          band rpf and yeah they’re on archiveofourown but i won’t link them because people i know know i use this site and i don’t want them to read them lol sorry
          i didn’t because it’s not actually of any importance/for anything significant – i write purely for pleasure, so i thought it best just to move on with it and write something new. i honestly don’t mind that much anymore not like anyone was gonna read them but me haha

    • Lily 7:20 am on February 20, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      Well I honestly don’t remember the last time i wrote creatively :-/
      BUT i did recently write a poem for school and i was so nervous because we had to read it out but i did it and it was fine! So i’m really relieved.

  • lem 9:09 pm on February 1, 2017 Permalink | Reply  

    So, I’ve been thinking. As a fan site, we obviously started out with a focus on the secret series. But other series were always there from the beginning, and mostly shared among all members. And almost all of them had a common genre- middle grade/YA relating to secret organizations. (Typing this I can think of a few other fandoms we shared, like Doctor Who and Nerdfighteria, but I’m referring to The Mysterious Benedict Society, ASOUE, HP, etc) So, a few questions for y’all as a post prompt: What do you think makes stories about secret organizations so great? Has growing up turned out to be more or less like the books we loved than you expected? And also, just, generally, does anybody have any recs for books of that genre meant for adults? Because I’d love you forever.

    • Agent Snowbell 9:52 pm on February 18, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      Still haven’t found any secret organizations IRL… or have I? ;D

      Wellllll, I’m just gonna plug Six of Crows again because everyone needs Six of Crows. `,` I mean, it’s *kind* of a secret organization… it’s a gang of thieves but they’re super cool relatable thieves and they’re great

      but mostly I’m just obsessed with the book and want to shove it in other people’s faces. ^^”

      I’m not gonna go into a ton of psychological analysis, but everyone wants to be in on something special that ties them to other people like that. By including a secret organization in a book, authors are creating a framework not only for a suspenseful plot (because what if they get CAUGHT? :O), but a framework for the fans to be joined not only by a common interest, but by a certain knowledge that they all share. :-,

      i’ve been meaning to respond to this but i’ve had exams for the last three weeks and i didn’t wanna make something random up/respond for the sake of responding.
      i actually have two exams tomorrow but no one cares about geography what even is a geography. i don’t know her
      i just realised that i, have no idea what i’m talking about i just typed out a really long thing and reread it and realised it made no sense hahah anyway let’s try again
      so i guess i think that with secret organisation in terms of fandom it kind of makes readers feel like they’re all in it together and if you adopt the type of thing we did in like a role-playing kind of like “ooh the midnight sun is real! i saw someone wearing gloves the other day!” then it adds a whole extra sense of fun and makes you feel special like having an inside joke i guess? also especially in the mind of a child – it’s a /secret/ organisation, and so maybe, just maybe, it could be real, and nobody /knows about it/ except you /do/ and it adds so much excitement.
      in terms of growing up i won’t say anything because i am very aware that i am basically still a child
      & i don’t read books intended for adults so sorry i’m no help!

    an update on lily’s life 

    hiyaa I thought i should write this so you guys know what’s going on with me because I feel like I haven’t done this in a while. Also it’s nice to write something for fun instead of  for school

    sooo college/sixth form:

    -is a lot lot better than years 7-11

    -quite stressful but not as much as i thought it would be

    -if i ranked my subjects from best to worst it would probably go english, psychology and then history

    -in english i studied a streetcar named desire and i really liked it

    -i’ve made so many new friends and i’m honestly so happy.especially because i was so unhappy at the start of the year

    -BUT they are starting to talk a lot about universities now and i’m still confused on the degree i want to take.

    me in general:

    -this is random but my make up skills have definitely improved so im glad

    -the last film i watched was gone girl and the series im currently watching is how to get away with murder. And both of them are amazing.

    -i haven’t read any books recently. has anyone have any suggestions??

    -ive been listening to the spice girls recently?? idk

    -also ive been meaning to cut my hair for sooo long. i think i might just go for it lol.

    AND BEYONCE IS PREGNANT WITH TWINS YALL

    alright that’s it bye xx

      Anyway. *cough*
      What do you think of Psych? I took it in 11th grade and loved it. The fact that you like it more than history and less than English doesn't tell me much, heheh (I've actually met two history majors who are in my D&D group and I don't know how they do it o-o).

      • Lily 7:26 am on February 20, 2017 Permalink | Reply

        True lol, I guess I was comparing it to the other subjects I take, idk
        Mostly i enjoy it!! I genuinely find it interesting which is pretty rare. Though there are downsides like having to prepare exam technique etc. Plus my teacher is a rambler so she talks continuously without much outcome.

    • paperclip123 6:17 am on February 20, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      please oh my god i’m looking forward to sixth form so much i can’t wait to drop all my useless subjects and wear a blue shirt (the rest of the people wear white shirts)
      i’m really glad you’re happy 🙂 but yikes university
      i love makeup on other people, like so so much, and i love watching makeup videos but i don’t like it on myself? it feels weird. i love how it looks when my mum manages to sit me down and stick some makeup on my face but i can’t be asked to do it frequently enough to get good at it
      last year i cut thirteen inches off my hair and it was so scary and fun and liberating and my head felt so light it was amazing hair grows back cut it if you want
      however cutting a lot off in one go didn’t work out amazingly for me because it took a while for it to get back to its original health, my mum won’t let me cut it again unless i trim it periodically inch by inch RIP

      • Lily 7:28 am on February 20, 2017 Permalink | Reply

        True!! Like i got to drop maths which was like the biggest relief
        I actually did cut it! Lol i completely forgot i mentioned it in this post. My mum is super annoyed at me now though. But i love it, I think it looks cute haha

    Post Prompt 31/1/17: Are you an organised person? How do you organise your time?

    I’m… not organised at all, actually, which is why I’m asking! I have no idea how to properly manage my time. I make timetables for things like revision but struggle so hard to follow them. My sister bought me this gorgeous, gorgeous diary (by this place: https://www.joules.com/Home-and-Garden/Stationery) and now I’m super motivated and want to keep track of my time. It is a January – December diary, and I know February starts tomorrow, but it’s fine. I did only get it through a lot of complaining, so I really hope I don’t waste her money and abandon it two days in.

    Mare xx

    (On a side note, it’s kind of strange for me to go by paperclip, I don’t mind if you do call me it, it just feels weird. My name is Maryam but I go by Mare online and my friends call me Mare. So yeah. I’ll keep the username cause Nostalgia but yeah.)

      I’m pretty organized. I have to be when my life is so chaotic, because if I didn’t have every hour planned out I would fail all my classes. At least, that’s what I have to tell myself in order to keep studying like a crazy person.

      The best thing to do, I think, is to really prioritize the things you need to do! If you keep getting stuff done in the order they need to get done then everything gets done in a comfortable time. It seems pretty straightforward, but it’s actually really helpful to visualize a list of things you need to do in order of importance. Try not to get overwhelmed, just focus on the most important thing and go down the list.

      No I’m not really organised but sometimes I get really motivated and organise everything at once
      I was actually thinking of making a timetable to manage my time. I made one for my GCSE’s last year and it helped a bit.
      Mare is so cute I love it. I wish my name was a bit longer so I had a cute nickname

      Oh, okiedoke! Mare it is. :-,

      I’m aight. When I was in high school I would keep a sheet clipped into the front of my binder and write down each assignment (or basically anything I had to do work-wise) and when it was due, and then cross it off when I finished. I find that with only three classes, though, I can just keep everything in my head.

      I still end up procrastinating at *least* until a week before even for major projects though. .-.

        As far as organizing stuff, it gets way easier when you move into a single-room apartment, or at least it did for me. I take time every week or so to tidy up my desk and remake my bed, and once a quarter to reorganize my drawers and closet, and that’s about all I need. :-,

    Post Prompt 1/29/17: What’s the scariest thing that’s happened to you, that you can remember?

    oh wait that means i have to answer it shoot

    Wellllll, last summer I was on a plane to my university for a 2-day registration/introduction program, annnd the plane lost pressure. I was 55% certain that I was going to die.

    By the way, those masks are horrid. Not being able to breathe is worse, of course, but it just felt so *wrong…* Every time you breathe in, there’s this awful sound and it takes forever to fill up your lungs, and you realize just how close you are to not being able to breathe at all… The pilot was trying to keep the air pressure to a maximum, too, so it looked like we were barely missing all these mountaintops…

    I’m afraid of flying on planes now. ._. I still do it, but the first time I flew back home for Christmas I started sobbing. The way back here was less bad, but I still felt like I was going to have a heart attack. :T

      Oh my god that’s actually terrifying.
      I don’t actually think I’ve ever been in a situation where my life has been in actual danger. The scariest thing I can think of is when a giant spider was in our suitcase and it was on our clothes and the lights were flickering and I screamed. I do have a phobia of spiders which is quite severe (I burst into tears when one showed up in a video we were watching in geography it was slightly embarrassing) so that might have exaggerated the fear I felt.
      When my mum injured her back, I was ten, and I was really scared then, just because I felt like my life had been flipped over because my mum was such an active person (still is now!) and she was on bedrest for ages and for a small child that’s pretty terrifying.
      Nothing as scary as your story though!

        Don’t worry, you’re not alone. There was this girl in my music ensemble one year who had serious arachnophobia and this one day there was a spider and this other guy (who was either clueless or a jerk, probably bit of both) *said* that he’d put it on her back and she *freaked* and was both terrified and embarrassed (this was in front of twenty people, mind you) and yeah that was not great. ‘- ‘ I don’t know if he actually had; probably not. He was still a jerk though.

      That’s so scary omg. i love planes and the worst that’s happened to me is just a bit of turbulence.
      I don’t think I can think of a particularly scary moment?? I still get scared of talking/presenting things in class which i really need to get over.
      ALTHOUGH I am really mindless when crossing roads and I’ve nearly been run over a few times

    School… again.

    How is everyone’s week going?

      Pretty okay, it felt like such a long week, though…
      My English teacher is in the UK for the week and we have a supply teacher (who happens to have been our actual teacher in year seven) and I feel like we’ve done more work this week than we have in the past year and a half lol. But she did talk about our teacher and say he has a way of teaching that gets you to learn without you feeling like he’s teaching you, but it’s still more than a little worrying when all the other classes have written multiple essays and you’ve done 1 (one) practice question.
      Also, my Design & Technology manufacturing deadline is on the eighth of February so I’ve been staying late after school every day and probably will continue to do so until the deadline. I’m making a collapsible cutlery holder which is pretty cool.
      We have Sunday off so it’s a long weekend!! Whoo! Revision!! (Weekends here are Friday/Saturday, in case you forgot) Seriously, though, I need the extra time to revise for mocks. And to write my French controlled assessment.

      How about you?

        A supply teacher? I guess that’s what we call a substitute teacher?
        Also, a collapsible cutlery holder! O.o What’s it made out of?

          I do call them substitute teachers sometimes but I think supply teacher is British.
          It’s birch plywood and acrylic!

          okay, research says that a supply teacher is there for a longer stretch of time and a substitute teacher just covers the one lesson!

            Oh, okay! Although in seventh grade we once had a perma-sub for four months (I’m nearly convinced my class made our first teacher quit – yes it was that bad), and then in 9th my English teacher was on maternity leave for most of the year so we had another one. We just still call them subs. \(‘-‘)/

      Pretty okay. I’ve got a midterm essay to work on that’s due Friday, and I’m trying to spread out working on it, but I also have tons of other stuff to do, and buses are awfully inconvenient sometimes…

      But hey, new RWBY episodes make every Sunday better. :-,
