Imagine

Ah, Minions... you weirdos...

The event at the Imagine Festival in London went very well, as I thought it would. It was the second time I was on stage talking about the movies that had influenced the books— the first time was last year, at the Mountains to the Sea Festival in Dublin.

The place was packed out and the response was fantastic. Afterwards I signed for about three hours, seeing a lot of familiar (worryingly familiar) faces in the queue... It was all so much fun, and I want to thank everyone who turned up.

For those of you who couldn't make it, here are the trailers we showed... and here are the trailers— because of age restrictions— we COULDN'T show...


Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

The whole Indiana Jones series has been a huge inspiration to me (except perhaps the fourth film.. ahem...) in terms of sheer fun and adventure and character. Jones is a perfect hero because, bizarrely, he rarely succeeds... Look at the first film, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and count how many times he messes up. He loses the idol, he loses Marian, he loses the Ark, he loses Marian (again), his bluff is called, he's captured... The guy never wins. But he NEVER gives up. And that's what makes him a hero.

I said none of this to Steven Spielberg when I met him, of course. I just started grinning.

But for the first book, this is exactly the kind of vibe I was going for. Fun, fantastic, and faintly frightening.

Another film that influenced the first book, and the series as a whole, is this one...


Big Trouble in Little China was a film that confused the hell out of me when I first saw it as a kid. I saw Kurt Russell and thought, okay, here we have the big strong American hero who has all the tough guy lines... and then he proceeds to bumble his way through the entire film. This is a guy who fights the bad guys at the end, totally unaware that he has lipstick smeared over his mouth.

It was only when I saw it again, years later, that I got the joke and I realised just how fantastic this film really is.

Playing With Fire is my monster movie. The Grotesquery, made up of parts of so many other creatures, is my Frankenstein's monster.


Every Saturday night I'd stay up after my folks had gone to bed, and I'd watch the old black and white Universal horrors, all the stuff from RKO... I don't know why I loved horror movies from such a young age, don't know what it was about me that responded so well, but I ABSORBED these things.


The Faceless Ones, I always say, is my whodunnit- it's my mystery book. Batu, after all, is the man behind the scenes, pulling all the strings. But this is also the first time we see the Faceless Ones themselves, which were inspired by the Cthulu stories by HP Lovecraft. The wonderful Hellboy comic is inspired by Lovecraft also, as you can see in the trailer for the movie adaptation...


(Oh, and also? Hellboy 2? They KIND of stole something from Skulduggery. Check out the poster and see if anything seems... familiar...)


(Ahem. Moving on...)

Dark Days is my revenge flick. You can't beat a good revenge flick, you really can't, and I jammed so much into this book. We have Tanith torture, we have Moloch and his vampires, we have Scapegrace becoming a zombie, we have the first real mention of Darquesse (even though she'd been in my plans from the very start) and we have the chapter entitled "Mid-Afternoon of the Dead".

Now, I could show the trailer to Night of the Living Dead, or Dawn of the Dead, or Day of the Dead, or the first two Evil Dead movies... but instead I'll show the trailer to Army of Darkness, the third Evil Dead film by Sam Raimi, and one of my favourite movies of all time...


Mortal Coil is my Invasion of the Bodysnatchers. It's my The Thing. It's the book where the Remnants run wild, and you can't trust the people you know, because they may not be the people you know anymore... Behold the glory of the hairstyles of the 1970s, and one of the most terrifying films I'd ever seen...


The Thing is the second John Carpenter/Kurt Russell film on my list, and it's here because it deserves to be. A masterclass in tension. If you're old enough, watch it... and watch it ALONE.


And in the chapter "By The Sword", we get one of my many nods to wonderful movies such as The Princess Bride. This one is pretty blatant. See if you can spot it in the middle of this, one of the greatest sword fights ever put onto celluloid...


Death Bringer is my superhero story. Between this and KOTW, the whole secret identity thing really starts to become a major issue, and this is the first book where we have a fight between two people who are powerful enough to punch each other through buildings... just like in Superman 2...


And this is also the book where Val gets attacked by that guy in her house. For me, this is the book where I switched from "realistic martial arts" to "realistic fighting", both in my writing and my own training. Take a look at my darling Gina Carano in Haywire...


And now we arrive at Kingdom of the Wicked, my science fiction story, where we have unsuspecting teenagers suddenly gifted with amazing powers, and we watch as it corrupts them. For this, Akira was a huge influence.


And it was also an influence on Chronicle, the trailer we showed at the festival. I THOROUGHLY recommend this movie.


And because it was science fiction, I felt completely justified in slipping in a nod to a certain Doctor...


We ALSO have a werewolf scene, which I did my best to link to the transformation in An American Werewolf in London. I'm not going to show that clip here, because it contains some brief nudity, but if one or two of you were to search for it, you would find that changing into a werewolf is a lot more painful than it appears in Twilight...

And SPEAKING of Twilight, how could I forget the debt I owe it for certain aspects of Death Bringer? So here we are, the trailer. Oh, be warned- one case of swearing at the very beginning.


And to top it all off, a massive influence on my writing...



And now I'm going to watch Ronda Rousey defend her UFC title against Liz Carmouche, in the FIRST women's event the UFC has ever held. In Ronda's own words, it is on like Donkey Kong...

Tom Baker (4ish) Byees!

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

OH GOD, I FORGOT MY PICTURE.


DAMMIT.



Anyway, I laughed at the fact that you put Twilight up there.

DOCTOR WHOOOOOOOO! I LOVE THAT SCENE!



AND BUFFY! Buffy makes me want to write. Really badly. But if I write, I can't watch the screen, so...



ALSO, YOU REALLY NEED TO POST YOUR TOUR DATES AND YOU REALLY NEED TO EMAIL ME.

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

Princess Bride scene is amazing.

Robin Snowscar said...

Hai

Robin Snowscar said...

That honest trailer... I am wetting myself.

NJ Maverick Renn (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

OMG DEREK GET ON HERE!!

THAT IS A LONG POST WITH A LOT OF TRAILERS!!!

NJ Maverick Renn (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

Also,


WHAT IS BOOK 8 CALLED?!?!

YOU SAID YOU WOULD ANNOUNCE IT THIS MONTH!!!

NJ Maverick Renn (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

And lastly,

HI EVERYONE!!

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

Dunno what number I am, but I always read the post before commenting, and I never notice the post first, so this is very high up for me! :)

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

HI NJ!!!!

NJ Maverick Renn (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

Hey Star!!

Been a while! How're you?!

*hugs*

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

Has been a while! :(

I'm . . . *considors* I'm meh, I suppose. :)

NJ Maverick Renn (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

I haven't been on as much,
GCSE's are hard. :/

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

Right then, here's my better pic. It's Fletcherless. YAY.

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

Oh, so Inkyness got twelf comment?

Twelf like an elf.

. . . I'm spelling twelf wrong, aren't I? . . .

I have mind blanks like this sometimes. *shrugs*

MSD!!!!

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

It's twelveth, Star...

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Ivy: *laughs*

NJ: -_- Nearly everyone stops coming on coz school work. I'm dreading the day it's me . . .

Robin Snowscar said...

Gotta go bai

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

No, it's twelth. I think. Yeah, twelth.

When I write the comment it has this odd font, so I can't tell my mistakes as easy. When I posted the comment and looked at it in a better font, I remembered how to spell it and I knew for defin. twelf looked wrong.

However, the remembering how to spell it was probably just a concidence . . .

My brain remembers and forgets the oddest things.

NJ Maverick Renn (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

GCSE's suck.
They make me want to punch a wall until I break my hand so I have a legitimate reason for not being able to do the work... :P

NJ Maverick Renn (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

Bye Robin!!

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

*smiles*

FOURS, ROBIN! :(

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

GCSEs should be eaten by Ieniness . . .

NJ Maverick Renn (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

They bore the hell out of me. I wish I was in primary school again

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

These blogposts are my favourites.

And the way each book has a different... Theme? Oh Golden God, it's genius. It's yet another thing I adore about the Skulduggery books - not one other series is quite this amazing. I love it. :)

NJ Maverick Renn (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

Hey Luce!!
*hugs*
How're you??

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AVhKt4eJUw

It's so sad when the best lyrics vid you can find has terrible sound quality . . .

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

Hey Scathles. :)

Dragonheart said...

A certain Doctor. Definately my favorite on the list. (I can't wait for March 30).
Oh and hey people!

kaleb drew said...

hey

Sophie Perring said...

May I just say, Derek, your taste in movies is G L O R I O U S.
It makes me curious as to what games you like, too. And if you read manga/watch anime... I mean, you mistook my character for L in London, so I guess that means you read/watch Death Note..? :D

NJ Maverick Renn (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

Hey Kaleb!
Nice to meet you :)

*shakes hand*

Sophie Perring said...

Also; HELLO EVERYONE~ *Waves*

Dragonheart said...

So wait, Derek is revealing the title this month, right?

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Hello. :)

I'm in a funny mood... I don't exactly know what mood it is... You?

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

*Scáthles

kaleb drew said...

hey mav also nice to meet you

*returns hand shake*

NJ Maverick Renn (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

Hello Sophie!
Nice to meet you!! :)

*Shakes hand*

@Dragonheart: He said he was... so, hopfully.
And Hi!!
Nice to meet you!! :)

*shakes hand*

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

Hi Kaleb, Sophie, Dragonheart. :)

If you're all stayers.

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

Sophie, are you dressed as Springheeled Jack? It looks a bit like it...

Zafira Kerias said...

No word of Derek? O.O

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Sophiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeee c:

kaleb drew said...

hey star, sophie and val

NJ Maverick Renn (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

HEY ZAF!!
*hugs*
How're you?!

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

I'm stuck wearing a skirt today because my jeans are in the wash, and my mum pointed out the fact that my legs are so pale they're whiter than the carpet. Which is basically white.

AND THUS, MY CHARACTER IVY'S SKIN COLOUR MAKES SENSE.

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

No word of Derek, Zaffles.

Sorry, I'm not being very social and communitive and hyper. I'm all flat. :)

All you new people should meet me on better days. *nods*

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

Every time I refresh the page I start laughing at picture on the top. It's hilarious.

kaleb drew said...

better days?

*tilts heads, looks confused*

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

I don't have skirts, apart from school skirts.

I'm so odd. Out of school, I refuse to wear skirts and just wear trousers. In school, I refuse to wear trousers and just wear skirts. :)

I wouldn't mind making a lyrics playlist for Nine Inch Nails. *frowns thoughtfully*

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

WAIT

DEREK KNOWS WHO L IS

OMG

Derek just got a million times more perfect
If that's even possible

Zafira Kerias said...

*hugs NJ*

It actually took me ovef an hour to load into Bloglad due to Derek so kindly putting WAY too many videos for my ipod to handle

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

*shrugs* Mostly, I'm more happy and insane and ME. I've got better as the conversation has gone on, but I was just being all plain and full-stoppy and I was like, oh dear, not good first impression. XD

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

I hate skirts, but I have them for emergencies. Like when I'm out of trousers.

NJ Maverick Renn (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

Aww Zaffy
*hugs*

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

*laughs*

I may have mentioned this before, but I love Disturbed.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

The tremor in my hand is still here.

They said it would have disappeared by now...

Hmm...

*frowns*

Zafira Kerias said...

Thiugh I hoped to speak to Derek

And NJ i wrote a list of what I want to say in April in case I manage to completely forget what i planned to say

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

:/

What kind of temor, Scáth?

kaleb drew said...

derek join us, join usss

*bows*

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

*wonders whether to change profile pic back or not*

Sophie Perring said...

OOPS, GOT SIDE-TRACKED. But yes, hello everyone! C:

And no, Valkyrie V, not Springheeled Jack XD I'm dressed as Undertaker from the anime/manga 'Black Butler' :D

NJ Maverick Renn (Sigil Student of China Sorrows) said...

Awesome Zaf!!
Zaf, if Derek comes on will you ask him on my behalf that question I have been asking him for ages and he has yet to give me a definitive answer??


I am going to go to bed now. Night guys!!
*hugs*

Zafira Kerias said...

Lol we're meowing at Derek on Twitter

*grins*

Evil genius plan number one in action

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

They thought it was anxiety...

But said it would go soon.

Yet, I'm getting worse.

:/

Brb, going to take some meds.

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

:( FOURS NJ!!!

Zafira Kerias said...

Of course NJ i will gladly

*takes out chainsaw*

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

:/

That's not good. I hope it goes away soon . . .

Zafira Kerias said...

I hope so too Luce!

*sits with chainsaw waiting for Derek*

kaleb drew said...

CHAINSAW WOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!

Sophie Perring said...

Naww, Luciana ;w; *Hugs* I hope you feel better

Zafira Kerias said...

*laughs*

Watch him come on telling me he doesnt trust me with sharp objects

Maybe I'll explode Ronda THAT may get his attention

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

@Zaf: *laughs*

kaleb drew said...

im sure it will

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Back.

I should be a little better in ten/twenty minutes. At least my headache will go away, and possibly the tremor... *decides to eat sugary foods*

Sophie Perring said...

Hey Derek, you still have that picture of Skul in a bikini, right? :D You didn't just burn it as soon as I left, did you? Eheheh

AND OH GOD. IF YOU EVER READ MY BOOK...I MAY JUST DIE OF EMBARRASSMENT *Flails* Don't hate me for how terrible it is ;w;

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cf3qkLVmI1g


It's funnier the more you watch it. I'm practically crying.

Fabienne (Fabi) S. said...

Can't see any of those YouTube videos, but the words on that poster do sound familiar...I wonder why.

Hope you feel better, Lucy.

Zafira Kerias said...

Or it could get me spooned....

Ah well

*explode Ronda*

Did you doubt me?

*hides in a closet*

kaleb drew said...

goodnight my fellow minions

Sophie Perring said...

Toodle pip, Kaleb~ *waves*

Fabienne (Fabi) S. said...

Oh dear. [Officially denies responsibility for Zaf's actions] and hides behind something-or-other.]

Night, Kaleb.

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

*nods* Goodnight, Kaleb. :)

Headaches suck. Hope you get all betterness soon . ..

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

*really hopes Derek is watching*

Zafira Kerias said...

See the funny thing is he'll never know xD

Next signing...

Em; Zaf exploded Ronda

Derek: *flies to America to hunt Zaf down*

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

JUST FOUR MORE DISTURBED SONGS NEXT TO DO.

Dehumanized, 3, Midlife Crisis and Living After Midnight.

Zafira Kerias said...

Uh why is mom watchinf Twilight?

Fabienne (Fabi) S. said...

Haha, you're not finished with your playlist, Star?

[Distant hiding fr--making popcorn. Mmm hmm.]

Fabienne (Fabi) S. said...

Oh, and hi Sophie! I don't believe we've met before, or maybe we have and I just forgot because I do that.

Also hi everyone else!

Zaf, your mom has bad taste in movies, apparently. Twilight is just...eww.

Sophie Perring said...

Hey, Fabi! I don't believe we have met before, but you never know. I also have a short memory span :D I'm terrible with names OTL

Sophie Perring said...

(Also, apologies to everyone if I'm a little inactive. Off to replay Bioshock 2 :D *Skips off merrily* )

Fabienne (Fabi) S. said...

Well, since neither of us remembers meeting, let's assume we haven't.

Hi, I'm Fabi. Adept, specializing in metal, freelance. Nice to meet you! [shakes hand]

Fabienne (Fabi) S. said...

Have fun with that!

Sophie Perring said...

Nice to meet you too, Fabi!

I am Sophie, professional procrastinator, fangirl, nerd and weirdo at your service~ *Bows* :D

( And I shall, thank you! C: )

Zafira Kerias said...

Zafira Kerias! Necromancer American Grand Mage but MAY be an Elder of America in Book 8 DEREK NEVER CONFIRMED THAT BIT

Zafira Kerias said...

Lemme rephrase: He confirmed I am in the book he never confirmed being an Elder

Fabienne (Fabi) S. said...

And toast, Zaf. [Grins]

Sophie Perring said...

That's awesome, Zaf! :D

God forbid Derek ever putting my character, Rapture, in one of the two remaining books. It would be a disaster. Ehehehehe *snort*

Sophie Perring said...

She's like Captain Jack Harkness, but with boobs.

mixs1002 said...

Derek: I'm going to post book eight's title sometime in February............> March arrives, along with the title.

Skyril said...

~hasn't properly read this because this comp doesn't have an earphone jack, and I don't want to miss anything~

But I couldn't resist commenting :]

Glad you had fun, Derek Landy.

Next time, come to America.

Then you can have to new faces and not be so worried ~grins~

Just saying.

...

I was planning on writing more, but I haven't been online for DAYS, and I have THINGS TO DO! AND FRIENDS TO SEE! AND BROTHERS TO BARRAGE! Among other things. :D

So see you later. :3

Becky Allaker said...

Becky Allaker said...

"worryingly familiar"

laughs darkly and returns to the sewers

Becky Allaker said...

Zafira Kerias said...

Oh Becky

Sophie Perring said...

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

Becky Allaker said...

ZAF MY LOVE I DON'T KNOW IF GERO TOLD YOU BUT DEREK SAID THE WAR WITH MEVOLENT ENDED AROUND 90 YEARS AGO

oh and also that Haywire film is so good. That fight scene omg. Mum called me in to watch it, and when i wasn't entirely captivated by how fine Fassbender was, i was paying attention to the fighting. please let the sp movie fight scenes be like that.
/please/

Willow Von Stratton said...

Hello all!

Zafira Kerias said...

Howlett told me but thanks :)

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Sorry I keep disappearing...

I'm sort of writing to get my mind off chest pains. ._.

Beckyangeo Allaker said...

Talking of Howlett, Derek calls her it so much that when I met up with her again, by force of habit, I couldn't stop calling her it. Dammit.
And okay~

Beckyangeo Allaker said...

joRDAN
*hugs face*

Willow Von Stratton said...

That's not normal Luci :/

Fabienne (Fabi) S. said...

Sorry I poofed! It started hail/raining, and I had to go outside and get wet, and laugh at the people who were running to get indoors.

Hi Becky, Willow.

Emerald Melody said...

Michael Fassbender should play Skulduggery Pleasant if there is ever a movie to be made

... Just saying

Sophie Perring said...

The war ended 90 years ago? I thought it would be longer...

Well, that's my long and complicated fanfiction ruined 8D

OTL

Fabienne (Fabi) S. said...

Oh :-( Hope you feel better, Lucy.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Hey Becky.

Willow, it's normal for me. Given the date, and circumstances. It's just really annoying. ._.
My own mind hates me. It's great .-.

Willow Von Stratton said...

hwy fabi, lucky i want it to hail over here.

Well that sucks, hope it feels better soon

Zafira Kerias said...

Aah

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

Nooooooo, David Tennant should play Skulduggery. He's skinny as a skeleton anyway.



And as for Valkyrie... *hint hint*

Elder Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Derek, you just had a pool party, didn't you???

*hugs*

PYRO AND RED GOT MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Willow Von Stratton said...

*nods* it should be David Tennent, and it'd be cook if you did play Valkyrie, Val

Sophie Perring said...

DEREK, IF YOU EVER READ MY BOOK (GOD HELP YOU IF YOU DO), THEN IGNORE THE TIMELINE. I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE WAR ONLY ENDING 90 YEARS AGO *Cries forever*

Fabienne (Fabi) S. said...

90 years ago, more recent than I thought it'd be. Hmm...

Normal for you. That sounds...bad.

Beckyangeo Allaker said...

Noooo, not David ;-; His voice isn't right.

Benedict Cumberbatch has the right type of voice...

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Cumberbatch for skully.
Scott for Serpine.
Hiddles for Ravel.

Ivy for Val. c:

Zafira Kerias said...

Ooh

Willow Von Stratton said...

for skull's voice this singer I listen to has a smooth deep voice

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

L, every time you say that you go to the top of my favourite people list, just saying. :D

Beckyangeo Allaker said...

I was about to say that omfg. Literally Derek has ruined my life along with Andrew Scott. Harmpine why.

Hiddleston is literally the only option for Ravel. There are no other candidates. They are one and the same.

Richard Grant is Shudder too just FYI

Sophie Perring said...

Oh my gOD BECKY. YOUR NAME *Dissolves into peels of laughter*

Zafira Kerias said...

Idk who i want

Beckyangeo Allaker said...

ohohohohohohohohohoho i am a master of all things funny hahasarcasmmyjokessuck

and my mum wants to be beryl so there's that

Willow Von Stratton said...

you really have no idea Zaf?

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Becky is Harmony

Fabienne (Fabi) S. said...

Hmm... Considering as I don't watch many movies, and am bad with names, I don't have any actors to suggest.

Sophie Perring said...

Beryl....Ehehehehehe *snort*

I think I /am/ Elsie, though, tbh.

Beckyangeo Allaker said...

yes i am harmony

do you think the films would still be suitable for kids with m-rated fic worthy harmpine sex scenes or

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Msd. But its more of a hoping I disappear. Because I'm tired, but in too much pain to sleep and I'm hoping my painkillers will kick in...

Beckyangeo Allaker said...

SCREECHING ELSIE IS THE BEST

no but i just thought

if the SP films are made...
does that mean there'll be an online mini series or a TV show for the novellas?

Sophie Perring said...

TOO MUCH PAIN? WHAT IS THIS?! *Smothers Luciana in hugs*

If it's any consolation, I have a whopping head/stomach ache combo right now. It's a pretty normal, every day thing. FML

OTL

Fabienne (Fabi) S. said...

Hmm... I think I'd better go. Mom's freaking out about onions... I have to see if I can help.

Hope you feel better, Lucy.

Willow Von Stratton said...

I hope so Becky!

See the docs Luci! Well you know I was just hella sick, so I'm sure you won't get that bad (I hope)

Willow Von Stratton said...

Bye Fabi

Eden Threatening said...

Hey guys wbd.

Beckyangeo Allaker said...

hdbjydgsvjysgrv jordan sophie stop it come here *hugs you both* sTOP BEING NOT OK

Sophie Perring said...

Bye bye Fabi~ *waves*

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

It's just my chest, Sophie. Probably anxiety, again.

Willow, they keep telling me it's all in my head...

Zafira Kerias said...

None lol

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Bye Fabi

*murders phone because autocorrect*

Willow Von Stratton said...

I'm sure it's not all in your head, and if you have anxiety you're not the only one, I can get it pretty bad

Sophie Perring said...

BECKKKY *Hugs you back* I can't help it. Believe me, I'd like to. The doctor's can't quite figure out what's wrong with me, and I'm too much of a wuss to have another blood test, and all these horrible tests .___. I think a main factor of it is anxiety, but I'm pretty much allergic to every food going, so I can't eat anything without PAAAIIIINNNNNN *Collapses and rolls around on the floor*

Miss Cain said...

MORNING!

Wbd, I've got to get ready for camp...

Willow Von Stratton said...

morning Miss!

Zafira Kerias said...

Morning Aussie

Miss Cain said...

Hi Willow!!
Hi Zaf!!

Nixion Strange said...

Hey

Willow Von Stratton said...

another new post? or are you just stating this new post?

Zafira Kerias said...

I dont see another one

Willow Von Stratton said...

I just realized I've seen the movie Chronile before, and I remember the teddy bear part, lol

Miss Cain said...

HI NIX!!!

Thrust Ominous said...

Your post took a hellova long tinme to load. THank YOu

Miss Cain said...

HI THRUST!

Thrust Ominous said...

HI MISS!

Willow Von Stratton said...

Thrust! We don't really talk, but hi!

Suz Korb said...

The one I remember was when I read what you wrote when he switches hands during sword fighting. I knew that was from The Princess Bride straight away, years ago! I love that film.

Also love Big Trouble in Little China. I remember seeing the trailer for it when I was a kid and I couldn't wait for the film to come out.

You have great taste in movies, Mr Landy.

Thrust Ominous said...

Hi, Willow!
I got the Princess Bride reference but I wasn't exactly sure if it was from Princess Bride, because I only ever saw a few parts of it.
Also because I wasn't sure if you'd reference something with Princess int he beginning, but you would. *slaps own face*

Willow Von Stratton said...

I'm lost at what you're talking about, but then again, i'm doing three things at once :p

Thrust Ominous said...

the second paragraph was addressing the princes bride reference. I wish there was a shorter way of saying that. There is, I just don't remember it. Crediting? All other possible words are mangling in my mind.

Fabienne (Fabi) S. said...

New MC chapter, random plot twist, and weird font/time experiment thingy! Yay!

Willow Von Stratton said...

ohhh, I get you now Thrust

I shall read now!

Miss Cain said...

...My sisters are crazy. *nods*

Fabienne (Fabi) S. said...

Hi Willow, Missy!

My sis is perfectly normal for a martian. 'Cept she likes to be younger than she is. And she is more often then not upside-down.

Thanks, Willow. It turned out different than I was expecting it to, but whatever.
