Re: Wonder: A Tour of the Galaxy (Ch 32) - Partners (Ch 63)

I think Olivia is pretty accurately portrayed as a sibling a fairly lost, sensitive teenage soul. She's a lovely, complex young lady. Her love for her brother is evident through the way she supports him, expresses interest in what's going on with him, and enters his room to try to get information ou...

Re: Names on HP Merch

I think if I were to get HP merchandise in general, I'd want my RL name on it. Most people in my everyday life don't know about HOL and wouldn't understand the HOL name on it. If someone in my HOL community were to gift me something HOL, then I might want my HOL name on it, since there's a direct co...

Re: Wonder: Ordinary (Ch 1) - Names (Ch 31)

I was thinking a lot of the same things Shi already said. Auggie does plenty of things the 'ordinary' kids do, in very similar and also very different ways. Those alternate methods of processing are what I think make him extraordinary. He enjoys Star Wars and Halloween just like many people do, but ...

Re: SQL 2018 - Week 2 - Quidditch Fouls

Thwacking is when a beater intentionally extends his or her bat to try to block or hit an incoming chaser instead of manipulating the bludger for blocking purposes. It is generally only given when the bludger is not in the area and there can be no mistaken intent. https://s15.postimg.cc/bxeye6juj/F...

Re: SQL 2018 - Week 1 - Siggy & Avatar

In trying to come up with something unique for Flanders, I stumbled an artist named Marilyn Flanders who did a piece called "Hearts on Fire". My siggie and avatar are based in pieces of that.

Re: The Most Satisfying Success

I think I'd have to say my most satisfying success (though this year has been huge in a lot of ways) was the time during a Quidditch game I got my first (and only) hit. Quidditch isn't my forte on here by a long shot, and I usually go into games praying I can at least know something, even if I don't...

Re: Howl's Moving Castle, Chapters 16-21

I found myself audibly going "ooh" "what?" "OH!" through the entire last few chapters of the book. Granted, this stretch of the book was probably the longest stretch of continuous reading of the story that I had. I agree with Shiloh here, I'd love to read it over again and read it in larger chunks. ...

I got all the way through Chapter 4 almost forgetting that she was cursed into inhabiting an elderly body. Then reading Chapter 5 last night, I kept thinking wow, did she become a snot who doesn’t listen to or respect anybody quite quickly. But then again, I think she feels like she has the opportun...

Re: Opinion Question #3

I feel like I would love to have Neverland as an escape, but would not like to stay there. Given the high stress of adult life, I think the escapism would be lovely after a bad day. "'Hey, I'm going to take a weekend in Neverland to hang out with the mermaids and pirates" sounds like an AMAZING vaca...
