Introducing….. the Brilliant Natasha Noël Flemming!

Hi there! I’m Natasha…. and I’ve hacked Chloë’s computer, because she doesn’t give us characters in her novels freedom, and I have taken matters into my own, totally capable, hands!

Natasha, I don’t think this is wise.

Oh, shush, Alex. She’ll never know!

*shakes head*

Anyways, I’m Natasha, I’m seventeen, and I’ll give you my autograph if you want it. And that other person is Alex. Actually, his full name is Alexander, but that’s way too long to say. I mean, who wants to go shouting ALEXANDER all the time?

Not me.

Natasha, really. Chloë isn’t going to like this….

As I said, she will never know, okay?

*sigh*

Now, what should we talk about? Oh, I’ve got it! How about ranting about how evil authors are to their characters? Yes! Perfect!

Tasha, you know that Chloë is nice to us! Well, most of the time.

Don’t call me Tasha! If she’s nice to us, then why did she do what she did to Captive?

NATASHA, NO SPOILERS!

Sheesh, okay, okay.

Find a different subject.

What? No! That idea is genius!

Natasha. Find a different subject.

Ughhhhhh…. okay, fine. Wait a minute! What if I host a Q and A? Yes! That’s even better, because, you know, everyone has so many questions to ask me.

Okay, loyal fans, comment away with any and all questions you have for me!

Natasha! *groans*

Alex, come on! You’re so boring.

I am responsible.

Responsibility is over rated.

As I said, comment away!

TASHA!

What?!

Chloë’s coming!

What? Uh oh, that’s my cue! Comment away, as I said, any and all questions you have!

Natasha, let’s go!

Okay, come on!

Golden Feathers, Silver Clouds

Hey, it’s Chloë. Sorry about that, my characters…. are kinda mad at me for what I did to them.

However, if you would like to have a Q and A with Natasha, let me know!

Shall we(1)

Writers, are you evil to your characters? What did you think of this post? Would you like to have a Q and A with Natasha?

Tolkien Tag 2017

(Sorry, PicMonkey is still not working for me…… anyone know of any other places to make featured images?)

Hey, there! Today, I’m doing the Tolkien Tag 2017, part of the Hobbit Week blog party hosted by Hamlette! I’m a little late, but…. I just had to do it!

Golden Feathers, Silver Clouds

1. How long have you been a Tolkien fan?

It actually hasn’t been that long, let me think. I read the Hobbit for school last year, but as it was for school, I didn’t think much of it. I also started trying to read the Lord of the Rings, but I got a copy with very small print and I got bored of it.

And THEN, I watched the movies. And I loved them, and started getting my hands on everything Tolkien. I’ve officially read every one of Tolkien’s stories that my library has…. except the Sillmarilion… that…. was rather boring, but I’m going to try again soon!

2. Has your love of Middle-earth affected your life?

Oh, definitely! It really inspired me, in many ways.

3. If you had to take the One Ring to Mordor, which character would you choose for your sole companion?

Oooh, that’s a hard one…. I guess either Aragorn or Legolas…. let’s say Legolas, then.

4. Which is scarier, Shelob or the Balrog?

Shelob, most certainly Shelob. SHELOB IS A BIG SPIDER I DO NOT LIKE SPIDERS HALP.

5. Which two towers do you think Tolkien was referring to in the title The Two Towers?  (i.e. Orthanc, Barad-dûr, Cirith Ungol, Minas Morgul, or Minas Tirith)

I think either Orthanc or Barad-dûr, nut I’m not sure.

6. Whose wardrobe would you like to have?

Oooh….. Arwen’s! Or….. maybe Tauriel’s? Or Eowyn’s? Galadriel’s?…….. Hm. Give me a second to ponder this……

AIHSDJHKASDH CAN I HAVE THEM ALL?

I guess I’ll say Arwen’s for the Lord of the Rings, and Tauriel’s for the Hobbit because that means at least two…. XD

7. What do you think an Ent Draught would taste like?

Slightly earthy and rather flavorless, truthfully. Maybe it might be a little gritty, like dirt?

8. Where in Middle-earth would you like to live?

Rivendell! I would LOVE to live in Rivendell!

9. Do you have any Tolkien-related opinions that surprise other people?

Hmmm… I’m not really sure about that.

10. List up to ten of your favorite lines/quotations from the books or movies.

Okay, here goes!

“Not all those who wander are lost.”

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.”

” May it be a light for you in dark places, when all other lights go out.”

“Moonlight drowns out all but the brightest stars.”

“White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.”

(Isn’t that description just beautiful?)

“Someone else always has to carry on the story.”

I can’t think of anymore right now, but there are a TON more.

Well, that’s that! I am off to a Wildlife Exposition right now, so, adieu!

Shall we(1)

What did you think of this post? Are you a Tolkien fan? What are your favorite Tolkien quotes?

Arrrrrr!- A Post Designed To Educate You On A Day That Should Be More Well Known

(Please forgive the fact that this post has no featured image, Picmonkey decided that it didn’t like me, and Canva did the same. I’m working on it, though!)

Do any of you know what yesterday was? No? It was International Talk Like A Pirate Day, of course!

What? None of you know what that is? *gasp* Clearly making this post was a good idea.

International Talk Like A Pirate Day is what it sounds like: a day that you talk like a pirate on. And it is sadly not very well known. Or if it is, then not many people participate in it.

So, I’m going to give you five reasons why you should celebrate Talk Like A Pirate Day! (Expect Jack Sparrow memes, a lot of them. Actually, this needs a warning.)

WARNING! IN THE FOLLOWING REASONS, THERE WILL BE AT LEAST ONE MEME PER REASON. BEWARE!

Golden Feathers, Silver Clouds

 

Reason Number One

It’s so much fun! I mean, who wouldn’t want to go around talking like a pirate all day? Especially Pirates of the Caribbean fans! And it’s even more fun when you dress up like a pirate, too! Think about it, you walk into the store, and people who don’t know it’s Talk Like A Pirate Day stare.

And for non shy people, or people like me, who are shy but like *cough cough* showing off their cosplays, this is a perfect time to do that.

And for your entertainment, here is a Jack Sparrow meme for bookworms. And PotC fans.

I actually said that to a guy who said I was crazy and he walked away thinking I was "crazy"

That’s me. XD

Golden Feathers, Silver Clouds

 

Reason Number Two

 

You get to wear a pirate hat! And that is a great honor.

Did you know that pirate hats are very particular about whom (who?) they let wear them?

Well, yes, they are. The wand chooses the wizard, the hat chooses the pirate. So there.

You need your key to get into your Gringotts vault.

Golden Feathers, Silver Clouds

Reason Number Three

Free stuff!

What do I mean by free stuff? Well, some places give away free things when you talk or dress like a pirate on Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Krispy Kreme used to give away free doughnuts to those who talked like a pirate, but I think they didn’t do that this year.

However, I think some other places did, and who knows what next year will bring, anyways?

LOOK! IT’S THE FAMOUS I’VE GOT A JAR OF DIRT GIF!

I love the expressions on Will and Elizabeth’s faces. XDD

Fact time! Did you know that that scene was unscripted? Yes, the look on the actors faces are real, they did not know what was happening.

 

Golden Feathers, Silver Clouds

Reason Number Four

Pirates of the Caribbean fans get a chance to cosplay as their favorite PotC character!

AND, as an added bonus, they get a great excuse to rewatch all the PotC movies!

That awkward moment when you don't know if a car is going let you cross. I'm usually like:

Look! Another GIF! That’s a record for me!

Golden Feathers, Silver Clouds

 

Reason Number Five

You get to call yourself Captain, of course!

For instance, you could introduce yourself like this: “Hi, I’m Captain *name*!”

And that is very cool.

And that concludes my post!

What did you think of this post? Was it too Jack Sparrowish? Will you be celebrating the next Talk Like a Pirate Day? Did you celebrate it yesterday?
