Re: On the Outside

I finished a book this afternoon called The Girl Who Fell from Earth by Sofia Al-Maria. It's about a girl who is half American and half Bedouin. She struggles with figuring out who she is in the world between her two families, the one in the US and the one in Qatar. The cultures are very different a...

Re: Dementors

I also love list making! I make priority lists of what needs to be done and what can stay more optional. I balance HOL and RL this way. RL stuff always comes first of course, but a lot of my HOL duties are very important to me. Point opportunities, RQT and anything in house (Go Bronze Nest!) keep up...

Re: Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery – A New Mobile Game!

I just saw. The game releases on April 25th this year! That's in less than two weeks? Are you all ready to play it? I know I am! The footage of it that I saw looks so cool and apparently they have the actors from the movie voicing their respective roles in the game as well! How exciting is this? I'm...

Re: HP - Told from a Different Point of View

I definitely agree with your assumptions on the length of the books/book in the case of Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley. I think I would really like to see the story told from Professor Snape's point of view. He became one of my favorite characters in Deathly Hallows, but I had always been interest...

My parents are gone working in the camps, and I'm left here holding onto Benny, the only thing I have left of you from before we left. I wonder what you are studying now at school? Have they moved on to algebra yet? You always loved ...

Our story begins on a dark stormy night as our travelers depart for a land far away, a land made up of stories from nightmares. The carriage picked up speed as the horses stumbled down the path.

Re: February Prompt: Spectacular Speeches

It was the end of the last day before the warlords took over our land. I stood in silent wait wondering how and what I would say to my people who hoped, prayed desperately for some sort of answer than the one I was about to give them. But what could I tell them except the truth? We had no way to def...

Re: Similarities Between Stories

I decided to go ahead and read Coraline next so I could understand the similarities others were seeing with it and Alice in Wonderland . Truthfully, I only saw mild similarities in comparison with when I read The Spindlers . While Coraline does involve this "other" world where we see a tal...
