AHA!

yesssssss! oh hi, this time it's just Mint and Amber posting, Mr. dude is asleep. and if you where wondering, yes, we did hack Evy's computer. if you are currently confused as to what i am talking about, go to Ali's blog and read the post where we did our second ever blog hack. so,now to the point of this post, to tell you that we didn't get any presents, so if you want to send us something then we would gladly accept your gift. so, that is really most of what we have to say right now, we will probably by back later because this is a really short post. but anyway, bye kitties of the internet!
-Amber & Mint (who aren't supposed to be
  on the blog so don't have a signature)

Merry Christmas!

Hello all! This is Gemstone, writing from Ali's account. Don't ask. There is only one person I know regularly reads my blog, but Merry Christmas!!
I know it's Evy's corner not Gemstone's, but technically it is mine. (Insert evil grin here [if dragons can grin evilly])
By far my favorite Christmas gift was my actual bow and arrows, one of which is already lost. I shot it into a clump of grass and now I can't find it. (Insert sad face here)
I also got one of those pattern coloring books and another sketch pad (#4), modeling clay, candy, a plush panda, and a roll of duck tape with owls on it. 
On a less happy note, I am discontinuing Blog Days. We are always too busy to write on Wednesdays, or most any other day. I find it hard to believe that this is only my fourteenth post!!
Well, Merry Christmas everyone, enjoy the rest of your holidays!
Gemstone

The Tiny Kitten Exchange

Hello, it's Evy. Today I plan to tell you about the Tiny Kitten Exchange.
The T.K.E. (Tiny Kitten Exchange) is something I started a few months
ago at my homeschool group. (Yes I am homeschooled and attend a
homeschool group. That tells you basically nothing about my personal life.)
It's really simple, actually. All you have to do is draw a tiny kitten
on a square inch of notebook paper, fold it in half, put a name on it,
and give it to someone. I gave one to all the girls in my class and the
substitute teacher.
Here are some pictures telling you how to draw them. It takes literally
no art skills at all, except maybe for eyes and accessories. Anyway, I
show you how to draw it in great detail.

First, you need notebook paper. Turn it so the lines go towards you.
Now, find four lines where you will draw your kitten. Draw a curve
across two of them.
Repeat below the first curve. It will kind of look like a lemon. This is
your kitten's head.
For the ears, start a tiny bit before the line dividing you kitten's
head in half. Go upwards in a diagonal until you reach the outside line.
Then go down the outside line. Repeat on both sides.
Add dots for the eyes and nose.
Now make an oval(?) for the body. Draw a line across the bottom of the
oval. When you cut out your cat, cut along this line.
Add two dips for legs and one more for a tail. (I messed up with saving the drawings, so just do your best, okay?)
You're done! Add accessories (I did a Santa hat) or color if you want
to. Then cut it out, fold it, and give it to someone.

Happy birthday to me, LIFE UPDATES and commenting

Hi people, it's Evy as usual, and today I have a post that I have been trying to get done for the past two(?) weeks.
On the second I was officially a year older (I would rather not share my age), so yeah.
I have also meant to get pictures of my Webkinz and AG dolls in their Halloween costumes, but we didn't get all the pics taken and so I never got around to it. Maybe at some point I will.
Before I forget, LIFE UPDATE: I have very limited internet use every day, so I may not be posting as much. That is all for my LIFE UPDATE.
So, I really, really like comments on these posts, it gives me the satisfaction that someone has actually taken note of what I'm saying. If you have something to say, or if the post made you smile or something, or you want to say "I like your blog" or even "I don't like your blog", please please please comment! I do understand that you have to use Google accounts to comment, and if your account is under your real name, everyone would be able to see it. I do moderate the comments so I am considering if I should change that. I might get more comments from friends that way. Let me know your opinion in the comments (See what I did there?).
There is also a "like" checkbox down below this post. Scroll down to the end of the post and look near the +1 button. It says "Your Opinion Please!" There are three boxes, labeled "Like," "Dislike," and "Wait What?" If you don't want to comment, just pick one based on your reaction and click it please!
Goodbye until next time,

Blog Days [Week Three]

Hey guys, it's Meredith. I know I haven't done Blog Days for almost a month now. I've been super busy with school and life and stuff. So to make up for it, here's three weeks(?) worth of Blog Days for you!

Soon to be:
So these weeks Evy has posted a new story. (Featuring her) It's called The Final Princess, go check it out. She is currently finishing Chapter Two so that should be up soon as well.

Gemstone's history and why she dislikes the name Gemma in Half The Sparkle. Story is currently in progress in Evy's head so maybe in the next couple of weeks it should be up.

A Shadowed Warrior finally got off the ground, so hooray for that. It's nowhere near being ready to post though, so sorry about that. 

Evy is thinking about Caught Outside (my story) and should be posting that in the next week or so.

Also! My Little Pony: Fanfiction is Magic soon to come! My profile on FIMFiction: AwesomeRaisins

Already Been: 
A Dragon's Lullaby (From Garland to Gemstone)
A sleepover post (Yay)
Foot Problems and Random Questions

I think that might be it. Good morning to all and to all a good night. Wait, what? I need to stop quoting The Night Before Christmas because it's Halloween and I'm getting the words all wrong anyway.
Cya,

The Final Princess [Update 1, chapter 1]

This story does follow The Element Guardians.  Neither are finished, and currently they can stand as independent stories.


I slid from my bed, pulling the comforter around me. I glanced around at my prison of a nursery, in case there were any guards watching. Daddy sometimes did that. No guards. Only my five year old brother, Maein, asleep in his own bed, and our empty shelf. Arabia told me it had once held torture devices. It was true, our room was a converted prison cell. The floor and walls were bare stone, and I shivered. I hated the damp, cold air of underground.
I slipped softly from the room, careful not to let the heavy iron door bang shut. I was only just strong enough to open it. I passed four actual prison cells before reaching the stairs. My bare feet were freezing by this point. I almost turned back to our room, but then remembered my sister Arabia's room. I kept going, up the half mile of staircase. I was remarkably fast, especially for a seven-year-old. It was almost as though I could fly.

Foot Problems and Random Questions

So, as some of you know, depending on who you are and where you know me from, I fell down on Friday.
Okay, full story. I was running in socks on the carpet at a skating rink. I slipped and fell down and banged my toe on the floor. I took my sock off and my toe was bleeding. It didn't really hurt.
On Saturday it hurt to walk on. Mom was a bit worried and so was I. I am a Pointe dancer with practice on Monday nights. I was afraid I might have to join one of my dance friends in the "I Broke My Toe" club, so Mom took me to urgent care and got my toe ex-rayed. I didn't get the ex-ray results until today.
Thank goodness my toe is not broken, but it still hurts to Releve and Mrs. Meredith said not to try Pointe for a while. That makes me sad, but okay. At least Mrs. Summer won't kill me for breaking my toe. Or maybe she wouldn't kill me, just my toe.
But that's the foot problems. Sometimes I wonder if I'm going to kill my feet or if they're going to kill me for standing on them.
So now to the random question!
The Quiz Of The Day!! (Dun dun dunnn)
Who Invented Pavlov's Triangle?
(Now go type your answer in the comments without looking at the words below this)

Did you type it? Good. Now the answer is: Tchaikovsky! (Highlight it)

My sister and I were being weird and I have a science final on Thursday. Sorry, Tuesday. But anyway, I said that Pascal invented Pascal's triangle. Allie was confused and accidentally called him Pavlov. She meant to say Pascal's triangle was invented by Tchaikovsky. She said Pavlov. 
So therefore, Pavlov's triangle was invented by Tchaikovsky. Thank you.

 Until later,

A Dragon's Lullaby

 
The sky is my wings when I have none
That to whom I owe my flight
Forever beneath the silver moon
In the shadow of the night

The light is my fire when I cannot find
Burning into the dark and cold
Shining brighter than the starlight
When I let my wings unfold

The night is my heart that I cannot hold
The place to hide in shadow
Sleep now, under dragon's guard
And I won't let them find you

This song is my wish when together we fall
The sky lifts your wings ever higher
Fly, Gemstone, dragon of mine
The night is yours to wander

This song is my love when you sleep by my side
Long after the day has retired
Fly, Gemstone, far into dreams
The night is your heart but the light is your fire

Gemstone Dragon
Thank you for reading

And Finally!

So finally! I am so excited right now! I am writing this while sitting in my best friends' living room at eleven thirty PM. Take one completely wild guess at what that means?
If you guessed that I'm sleeping over, you are correct! Hooray, you get a gold star! And I'm extra excited because this is the sleepover we've been asking about for FOUR YEARS!
Earlier this evening we played Truth or Dare. EVERYTHING STUPID SILVER SAYS BACKFIRES ON ME! Because Saladbar notices and then pulls me into it. Ughhh.
Striker's downloading something. And he has a blue forehead. So yay! You get commentary on what's happening.
I dyed my hair. It looks awesome. It has black tips and half my bangs are pink. It looks awesome. Everybody but Saladbar and Silver dyed their hair. It wouldn't work on Silver's hair and Saladbar didn't want to.
"I can't dye my hair. I decided to cry like an anime person." -Silver (Blue hair dye down his cheeks)
Allie: Blue tipped curls, blue stripe.
Silver: Pink bits in the front (you have to look hard)
Striker: Blue front (all of it)
Me: Black ends, half pink bangs, and a pink stripe.

We dyed the dog's hair too. It's pink, green and purple. she looks adorable.
Allie is now imitating Aunt Petunia. Staring out the window at the nonexistant neighbors.
If you haven't determined this yet, it's a boy-girl party. And it's awesome.  These are my best friends and I love them all like brothers. Brothers. However, if they actually were my brothers all of us would probably be dead or in mental hospitals by now. So maybe it's good we aren't siblings.
It's eleven forty-five now. I've been writing for 15 minutes. I'm going to have to go soon.
By the way, they aren't sporks they're fpoons. I like them better because fpoon sounds funny and it's hard to say.
I need to go brush my teeth and put my pajamas on, even though I'm sleeping in my clothes.
Until tomorrow.
 {Continued Sunday afternoon}
By dyeing my hair I effectively stuck all the ends of my hair together. I can't brush my hair anymore. Sadly, the black didn't last after I slept on it, but the pink is still there. Allie got an embarrassing picture of her taken by Silver. It was a dare. (In case you're wondering, no, I don't have the picture.) When we play truth or dare everybody ends up singing stupid songs or confessing their love for somebody. And being very inappropriate along the way. But I really had so much fun.
Later awesome people.
(You guys rock)

Blog Days [Week 2]

Happy Tuesday all! Gemstone, your resident dragon, writing.
First off, I would like to thank you for getting me in trouble. But I mean really, Meredith had to call me Gemma. She was asking for it.
But also, welcome to the time loop. You see, it's always Tuesday. The date changes, but the day of the week doesn't. (Don't tell anyone, but I'm behind it.) It's somewhat difficult to comprehend. Stupid human brains. They have no clue about time and dragons and how dragons control time and other things like that.
I guess I should really introduce myself better. I'm Gemstone, Evy's "pet" dragon. I also run things, organize them, and edit this blog. I came up with the idea, yet never get to post anything. Oh well. To the purpose of this post:
This week Evy's been lazy, er, busy, and didn't post anything whatsoever. Hoping next week will be better. However, Evy gets to ramble about her life later today, so hooray for inside jokes and stupidness!
See you some other time, since I'm usually just a blog moderator. Meredith was sick this week and couldn't sit up to type while still being able to read the screen. Sorry, but no sympathy. I get to write Blog Days instead!
Later.

Blog Days [Week 1]

Hey guys! Meredith here, bringing you a post. Gemstone is sassing me in the background because I couldn't figure out which buttons to press.
"I am a mythological creature! You are a teenage girl from the computer age, and I can work Evy's laptop better than you!"
Thanks Gemma. You rock.
 And now my hair is on fire. Somebody doesn't like being called Gemma. I'm used to it though. I'm seriously thinking about shaving my head, that way I don't have to cut my hair two inches shorter every week. Or maybe I'll just borrow one of Evy's enchanted hairnets.
I'm laughing now because Gem is in her cage. Thanks Mint. You rock too. Smell of burning fur. Gem is going to get it so bad when Evy finds out Gem burned her cat.
But anyway, this post wasn't supposed to be about Gemstone's bad behavior. So to the point:
This week (I don't care that it was two, Gemstone) Evy basically just worked on setting stuff up.

1.5 chapters of The Element Guardians published.
One photo shoot
One shoot in progress (Probably Friday)
One massively annoying dragon (I'm talking to you, Gem)
One new follower (Go Birdsong!)

And that's basically it! See you next Wednesday!

The Element Guardians [Update 2, Chapter 1]

Chapter one: Fara
I slid in the back door, closing it loudly behind me.
“Fara! There's graham crackers!” I heard Grace yell from the kitchen. “And Cleo's eating all of them!”
“I don't care,” I replied, already on my way up the stairs. “Get Mom.” Grace was silent. I took off my shoes at the top of the stairs and skated in my socks past three bedrooms: Mom's, Cleo's and Grace's. At the end of the hall was my room. I opened the door and stepped inside, picking my way over piles of laundry, stuffed animals, and school books. Mom was always begging me to clean my room, but in a way I liked it. I pushed aside another pile of animals and sat down on my bed, almost sitting on my cat, Turquoise. I scratched her ears, thinking about my unfinished biology notes and Raina's strange behavior. Then I heard a knock on my door.

The Element Guardians [Update 1, Prolouge]


Prolouge: Raina Davis
She woke in a hard, wooden seat. She had no idea where she was. Oddly, that wasn't the first question to come into her mind.
“Who am I?” She wondered.
A small voice in the back of her head answered. You are Raina Davis.
“I'm not,” She argued. “I'm not Raina.” She had no idea who she was, just that she was not Raina Davis.

Doll Photo Shoot


Today was the first dry day all week, so I decided to take Rileigh, Kylie, Kaya and Disney out for some photos. I tested a new hairstyle for Kaya as well. Her hair looks great in a ponytail as well as the traditional braids.



Kaya started out with some tree climbing. Fitting for such a beautiful day.












However, I think she made Rileigh a little bit nervous. But then, Kaya was always the adventurous one, whereas Rileigh prefers to keep her feet where they won't slip.





Kylie was pretty fast to join her twin in the tree. She still hung upside down even though she was wearing a dress.
Rileigh eventually gave up trying to catch her sisters if they fell and sat down with Disney.
The twins wanted me to get their picture in the tree together. Kaya wrote something on the bottom of her foot again.

From a different angle. I like this one better.













Eventually everyone decided they were just tired and couldn't climb anymore. The moss was so soft.









Which is your favorite picture? Mine is the first one of Kylie and Kaya in the tree.
Thank you so much for reading, it really means a lot to me.

Welcome

Hello, random internet people. This is Evy bringing you her very first post!
There will be some random contributers on this blog. Some of them include dragons, more book characters, cats, and possibly other pets of mine that hijack my computer. Just don't even bother to ask about that one. Mint (my cat) has notoriously taken over my Mincraft account before. (Long story)

All listed below as characters are from my writings.
Intentional contributers will have their own signatures. I will be listing them out below:
  • Evy (that's me): Fairy/shadow; character from The Final Princess
  • Ali: My sister; character from An Abandoned Warrior
  • Joe: Weirdo contributer; shouldn't be on much
  • Gemstone: My pet dragon; Last Dragon Chronicles OC
  • Meredith: Teen girl; character from Caught Outside
  • Mint: My cat; computer hacker
  • Amber: Mint's sister; hopefully not a hacker (we'll find out)
So there you have the cast of this blog. Exciting, right? We'll see.
I will make sure to post about, um, once a week, maybe?  We'll see how that goes too.
See you soon,
