A Birthday Party Around The World

A little post here, just to share the oddness that is my life.

Everyone has birthdays. These birthdays are celebrated. Sometimes there are parties. These things happen. These things are normal.

Some other people have birthdays that are celebrated in their absence, halfway around the world, by people they have never actually met. These things are definitely not normal. But these things happen to me.

My Minions, for your amusement, I provide for you a select few photos taken at the party organised by regular Minion commenter and general online-stalker, Valkyrie V Cain.


Billy-Ray Sanguine (in a lovely checked shirt tied off at the midriff... um...) and a seriously disturbed looking Tanith.


Melancholia, looking AWESOME.


Solomon Wreath, being his/her generally aloof self.


Kitana, kicking the hell out of poor Valkyrie...


... and looking pretty smug about it, too.


Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you one Nefarian Serpine, he/she of the red right hand...


... and poor China Sorrows, who has no idea what is about to happen.


Argeddion. Looking VERY pleased with himself.


You may be forgiven for wondering who is this long-haired person who is trying to woo Valkyrie, but then you will realise- it's Caelan. OBVIOUSLY.


A wonderful time had by all...


... and even I attended! (Sort of.)


And two photos to end things off. One... just because I think her facial expression is hilarious...


And the final photo of Valkyrie V Cain herself. All these photos have made me grin so much I think I've broken my face. Thank you Valkyrie, and thanks to all your (admittedly insane) friends...!

Ah! So close to the top!!!!

Hi all!

Derek, if you re still on, I have a question.

Did Skulduggery have a taken name before he became a skeleton? Because some people-like Fletcher when they first met- seem to take it as a reference to his skeleton-ness.

*you're

That was so crazy...

Star Inkbright said...

Heylo once again, Star! :)

Ariana Shade said...

Yes, the party.

Derek are you going to come to the party next year?! If you came there would probably be less playing with knives! *cough* *cough* China Sorrows *cough*

Anonymous said...

China played with knives? What?

Derek, you should go to her party next year! And then go on a tour while you're here....

Ariana Shade said...

Yes China was playing with knives. Thank God someone took it away from her... I wasn't going to get anywhere near her with a knife.

Anonymous said...

Like, a real actual knife that could kill someone?

Awesome!

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

OH MY GOSH DEREK THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!











I ACTUALLY JUST SCREAMED! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!


YOU ARE SO AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ariana Shade said...

Yes, it was later used for cutting the cake. To bad you can't see Caelan's face better. It was hilariously terrible xD

Bye guys, gtg!

Ariana Shade said...

Oh good Val, you're here. I was debating whether to call you but I didn't want to wake you up.

Ariana Shade said...

Happy Birthday Derek! It was my birthday toooo!!!!! WOOOO :)

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

Hahahahaha! I had to read over the post about seven times to catch everything it said, but I loved this "...at the party organized by regular Minion commenter and general online-stalker, Valkyrie V Cain".

Charisma Thorne said...

Hello Derek! That looks awesome! I've got a question to ask! Have you got any tips on how to keep writing? I'm doing National Novel Writing Month, and I'm trying to write a 50,000 word novel, and I wondered if you had any tips! Thank you! You're awesome!

Unknown said...

Happy Birthday Derek!

Exeenera Dawn said...

Aww.....
That looked FUN.

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

Derek, you DO realise that I will never get over how awesome this is, right? BECAUSE IT'S TOO AWESOME FOR THAT.

Ariana Shade said...

Much to AweSOmE. I have been officially classified as insane by thy Golden God.

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

Hey Derek, did you notice my Necromancer ring? You can see it in some of the pictures!

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

And Sanguine had a straight razor, but she took the actual blade out because she thought it would a bad idea to have around some people *cough me and Amanda cough*

Oh! Derek! I remembered something! Did you watch any of the videos?

*doesn't know what I'd do if he actually saw the KOTW one*

Flame Phoenix said...

Please go to the link above and READ and COMMENT. PLEASE:D

Unknown said...

this is amazing!!!! i wish all my friends were fans :'(

Unknown said...

I wish that I knew anybody outside of my family who will read these books. My friend started yesterday, but she was distracted by Maximum Ride :(

Ariana Shade said...

I'm forcing everyone I know to read them :)

Star Inkbright said...

My sister has read Skulduggery Pleasant and Percy Jackson and Artemis Fowl. And she likes them all. Which means she is Offically Awesome.

Unknown said...

My mom started yesterday too, and she really likes it so far!

Star Inkbright said...

Wbd.

Unknown said...

I LOVE Artemis Fowl

Ariana Shade said...

Hi Ink!

Star Inkbright said...

I am the supply which my sister gets nearly all her books from . . .

Unknown said...

I got SP from my brother's shelf, but he hadn't read it

Star Inkbright said...

REALLY???

ARTEMIS FOWL IS AMAZING. :)

I just read the short story in the back of The Time Paradox today. Never read it before coz I never had access to a new edition of the book it before.

Oh, Short story. Lol. XD

Unknown said...

What short story?

Star Inkbright said...

My mum got me Artemis Fowl book one, then I got all the rest from the library. My sister just got all the Artemis Fowl books for her birthday and she actually WANTS to keep them in my room because I take pride in the way my bookshelf looks . . .

Me: *over the moon*

Star Inkbright said...

LEPRecon.

About how Holly got moved from Traffic into Recon.

Unknown said...

I have way too many bookshelves to keep them organized. I tried to alphabetize them once and gave up halfway through A.

Unknown said...

We were learning about Logos, Ethos, and Pathos in class and we had these little cards with L, E, and P on them.

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

My bookshelf is running out of space, because of all my Skulduggery books...

Star Inkbright said...

I didn't know it existed till today. O_O

I just thought Time Paradox was a longer book than the rest, but no - the short story (Short story) takes up 60 pages at the back. :)

Star Inkbright said...

AWESOME.

My favourite books are Skulduggery Pleasant, Artemis Fowl, Gone and Cassandra Clare's books (The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices).

Star Inkbright said...

Argh. Brb.

Ariana Shade said...

I'm getting a TARDIS bookcase built for me for Christmas!

Unknown said...

Hey! You've read Gone?

Taia, Raisin, A Good Bear (actually undead) :) said...

*laughs*
Awesome!
Insane, quite possibly, but then, most awesome things are.

Val and friends, Well done. Clearly, Derek enjoyed his birthday party. I'd like to think that you did, too. ^-^

*Slips away into the not-very-darkness*

Star Inkbright said...

BACK.

Unknown said...

My favorite books are Skulduggery Pleasant (duh), Howl's Moving Castle, The Enemy books, books by Tamora Pierce, and lots of other books.

Stella Hazel Book said...

That sounds like an AWESOME party. Seriously insane, but awesome.
*disappears with a poof*

Ariana Shade said...

Tomorrow I'd like to spend my entire day preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse.

Star Inkbright said...

GONE IS AMAZING. :)

If you look back through all the comments I've ever posted (would NOT recommend doing it, btw) you will see certain periods of time where I won't stop talking about Artemis Fowl (NOW) and periods where I won't stop talking about Gone and periods where I wouldn't stop talking about The Mortal Instruments. If I'm obsessed with something, I do it properly. :)

Unknown said...

Have you read the other Gone books?

Star Inkbright said...

*files those titles away in my mind* Awesome.

Taia, Raisin, A Good Bear (actually undead) :) said...

Oh, and because I saw the phrase 'favourite books' I'd like to contribute the Chaos Walking series.
They're great books, I promise. Almost had me in tears, which no other book or film has managed before.

(That, Sir Derek is what I call a challenge for you. Can YOU write to the point of near Taia-tears? Try, I dare you.)

Unknown said...

Has anyone here read Pandora Hearts?

Star Inkbright said...

Yup. Gone Hunger Lies Fear Plague. Before my SP books arrived in September (I only read them from the library before that) and my sister's AF books came in October, my Gone books were revered upon my shelf. Now they have RIVALS. Rivals which surpass them because my Gone books have the occasional rip or bend along the bottom . . . 'TWASN'T ME, ',TWAS THE PREVIOUS OWNER.

Ariana Shade said...

I've got to go now! Bye everyone!

Unknown said...

Oh, and I love the Discworld books!

Unknown said...

Bye Ariana Shade

Star Inkbright said...

No, Magpie. :(

Taia: I haven't read Chaos Walking, but they were already on my To Read List before you mentioned them. :)

Just in case you were wondering, I do have an actual To Read List. I should probably take AF6 off it now, because I've just read it . . .

Unknown said...

Anyone here watch Sherlock?

Taia, Raisin, A Good Bear (actually undead) :) said...

Oh, Awesome Star. They should be moved to the top of your list. *gestures dramatically*

I have a book of Books To Read. It's a large scale list, basically. Unfortunately, when it's book-buying time, I can never find it. :P

*laughs oddly and slinks back into the not-very-darkness*

Star Inkbright said...

FOURS ARIANA! :(

I read one Discworld book and couldn't get into it. :(

I've no idea why. I think it was too unrealistic. I know I love fantasy, but I like my books to be how real life would be if the things in the books existed. I love Gone for its realism. It's exactly how real life would be if the FAYZ and the gaiaphage and magic powers existed.

Unknown said...

I have to start a To Read list, I usually just pull books off of the library shelf

Unknown said...

Who's your favorite character in Gone?

Star Inkbright said...

My list doesn't have an order. The things at the top of my list are there because I wrote them before anything else.

Unknown said...

Okay I'm starting my To Read list, any ideas?

Star Inkbright said...

Hmm. Difficult question. But I have thought about it before. Probably Dekka. Why? Because there isn't anything I especially DON'T like about her. :P

Michael Grant makes his characters realistic, which means because of the circumstances all of them are messed up. Yay.

Caine is cool, though. Sam and Astrid are too messed up. Brianna can be increfibly stupid. Drake is horrible. Looking at his name actually scares me. Brittney is just sad. Sanjeet I like because he's cheerful and hasn't been broken yet. In contrast, Lana has been broken to extremes.

Gtg. :( Bbl.

Unknown said...

Goodbye

Taia, Raisin, A Good Bear (actually undead) :) said...

I've still not read Gone. But it sits with patience in the Book of Books.

My book/list works in the same way, Star. If something's particularly important, I just circle it a bunch of times, or write 'particularly awesome' next to it. :P

Books to add to your list? The Chaos Walking books, if you didn't add those already... Divergent, and The Hunger Games, if you haven't already read those. :3
Aside from that, well, my Library's temporarily shut down, so I've been too short for reading material, recently. 'Tis a mighty shame, 'tis.:C

Anonymous said...

Hi guys! *is drooling at Amazon*

Unknown said...

I read Divergent for my summer reading group for school, and I read Hunger Games so I could understand what everyone was babbling on about

Unknown said...

Hey Kessie

Taia, Raisin, A Good Bear (actually undead) :) said...

Lol, Ah. Well, If you enjoyed Divergent, there's the second in the series, Insurgent. :3

Hi, Kestrel~

Yeah, I read that too. I read A LOT

I'm starting the Impossible Astronaut.

Which one are you watching?

Taia, Raisin, A Good Bear (actually undead) :) said...

Ah, Usually, I'd have the ability to claim that I read a lot, too, but my library's closed and I need what money I have left from buying a bunch of music last month to replace my broken headphones, so none to buy more books...
The last thing I read was the short 'prequel e-book' addition to Chaos Walking. And that was, what, two months ago? :(

Unknown said...

I'm just finishing the Doctor's Daughter

I can't imagine not getting any new books for 2 months

Aw! Kes! I just got here!! Bye :(

Taia, Raisin, A Good Bear (actually undead) :) said...

Doctor Who is awesome. Or, I daresay, it was...
I'm still trying to decide whether I like Matt Smith as the Doctor or not.
I don't think he's a bad actor, but, for me, He's not Doctor material.
I miss my David...

As much as I hate to admit it, I didn't really notice not having anything to read, much. My free time drains away with homework, music, and artwork...
And waiting for WHSmiths' to get KOTW in stock. *glares*

Bye, Kestrel!

Unknown said...

I just order from Amazon UK. And it takes way too long to come

Ariana Shade said...

I miss David too but I love Matt Smith. Not as much of course, but close.

Taia, Raisin, A Good Bear (actually undead) :) said...

I would order from Amazon, but books smell so much nicer if they've been sat in a bookshop for a while, first. Amazon books don't smell as good. :C

Also, my post tends to arrive late. I ordered The End Of The World TWICE, and still waited well over a month for it to arrive. Never got the first order, either...

Unknown said...

I haven't gotten to Matt Smith yet

Taia, Raisin, A Good Bear (actually undead) :) said...

Ah, I love David Tennant.
I can get pretty obsessive over things, and I managed about a year's worth of David Tennant fan-art sketches in a month. :3

David Tennant has the second largest folder of fanart, following the folder of obsessive MCS sketches...

Unknown said...

I can't draw. AT ALL. I'm making a picture book in french class, and my main character's head is twice as large as everyone else's

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

Matt Smith is my favourite. He was the first Doctor I watched, so...

Ariana Shade said...

Same here. My drawing's crap.

Unknown said...

Christopher Eccleston was my first, and I thought David Tennant couldn't be better. I changed my mind pretty quickly

Unknown said...

I got out of writing dialogue for my french story by making all my characters mimes and dogs

Luciana said...

FORTY ONE BOOKSSSSSSSSSSSS.

OMFGG, IT'S SO SEXY THOUGH.

I CAN'T WAIT FOR MY BIRTHDAY, NOW. THE USA EDITIONS OF THE BOOKS ARE SO NICE. OMG, I MIGHT ORDER THE HARDBACKS OMFGG. TOO EXCITED. ASDFGHJKL;

Taia, Raisin, A Good Bear (actually undead) :) said...

*laughs*
I have friends who say the very same. As it turns out, they can draw rather well.
And I do draw an awful lot. Probably why I don't get enough homework done on time...

The first Doctor I watched was one of the REALLY old ones. I watched most of the Chris Eccleston ones, but David Tennant was when I really got into DW. I go back to watch David Tennant's series now, and I have to clench my jaw and squish my hands to the point of pain to keep from squeeing and flailing my arms about like an idiot. :3

Ariana Shade said...

The first episode I watched was one of Matt's Christmas specials.

Unknown said...

you haven't seen my drawings. My STICK FIGURES look deformed

Ariana Shade said...

The only time I draw is during math...

Hi again, Kestrel!

Ah, when I have free time, I'll be drawing, looking for paper, listening to music, Or any given combination of the three. :P

And, for the mention of maths - I have to go.

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

No, but I want one!

Star Inkbright said...

Me and my brother had a poke war, and then it turned into a swordfight . . . Him with his wooden sword that Dad made for him, me with his plastic lightsabre. Then we both got identical plastic swords that we bought for his Merlin party to make it an equal battle. It was a funny match. I've actually been doing proper fencing for a few weeks, whereas he had tons of energy but was wasting it all on hitting my weapon in a showy but ineffective way . . . Mostly I just stood there and let him bash my sword. :)

I want to do fencing, but I'm kind of too lazy

I've given up on homework for tonight. I'm too busy mentally crying about River in Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead.
My room isn't big enough to walk round in circles really. I might be about to do 1 or 2 steps up and down, but that's about it, so meh.

Star Inkbright said...

My room is big enough to walk round in circles only when it's tidy. :)

Which it is atm. Yay. Usually I place my chair in the centre of the room where I can walk around it, coz otherwise it gets in the way. *looks* My room looks enourmas to me atm. Always looks huge when it's tidy. It would be a lot smaller if it wasn't for my loft bed . . . My bookcase and my mini-sofa (put in my room when we moved house coz there's no space for it anywhere else) are under my bed, plus unless I got rid of the chair I wouldn't be able to walk around my room in circles with an ordinary bed.

*remembers* Oh yes I could. I have that big empty space by the door where this wooden chest was until a few days ago. Forgot. Would be pretty small circles, but still.

Niamhy Jay said...

OMG I AM PSYCHIC
I SAID ON VAL V'S BLOG TO BE PREPARED FOR THIS!! :P

I am still so jealous she has enough friends that are also fans of the books to do this.

In my group there is me, MK and Skye :P
We are the only real fans of the books.
I have 3 SP books on the way to my house!!

OMG MY FRIEND JUST TWEETED SAYING HER MUM IS READING THE SKULDUGGERY PLEASANT BOOK I LENT HER AND IS LOVING IT :'D
