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! 😮
The inimitable Kaz Brekker! (I'm sending the print copy of this to my boyfriend for his birthday so don't show it to him plz kthx :p)
And, of course, Inej Ghafa, Kaz's right-hand Wraith. (She's the best ^^)
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
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.
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

How do y’all feel about the A Series of Unfortunate Events netflix series? I love it so much
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.
(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.)
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
