Twits...?

Wayyyyyyy too busy to write a proper Blog thingy- you'll be happy to know that I am 13,320 words into Book 8- but can I just ask why I have so many Twitter followers?

I DON'T TWEET ANYTHING. 


I don't even know how to re-tweet. Or do anything.

I also only follow two people- Gina Carano, who rarely tweets, and Ronda Rousey, who only stops tweeting when she's asleep.

In fact, on the run-up to her UFC debut in February, Ronda and her mum have organised this cool "feed the hungry" competition. Basically, you log on, answer some questions, and for every answer you get right, the advertisers on the site donate 10 grains of rice to the World Food Program. It's free, it's fun, you're helping people AND you're proving how much smarter you are than your fellow Minions.

How could you resist?

Go to Ronda's mum's blog (her mum is a Judo blackbelt... how cool is that?), follow the link and try your luck.

http://drannmaria.blogspot.com

Also, for all you Twitter people, could you take a picture of the Ronda Rousey mention in chapter 52 of KOTW and send it to her? I would, but I haven't a clue how. My genius lies in other areas. Like cookies.



And on an unrelated note...

Big congratulations to Em and Chase.

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

The Sigil student thing doesn't require a lot of work it could be like 'Oh, there's NJ Maverick, you know she was one of China's Students. She was one of the ones that put the protective sigils around Haggard when Crux went after you.' BAM DONE!

Zafira Kerias said...

Derek you promise to at least try to look? I think he was a Necromancer i swear he had to have been....I'm asking a six year old this is not something you ask six year olds the result ends imaginative

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

Derek... ahem...


Name: Ivy Animosity
Magic: Adept, mind reading, shooting epic blue lasers out of her hands (and she can teleport in my thing, but...)
Appearance: REALLY pale, black hair, indigo eyes. Wears all black; combat boots, coat, and usually a black shirt. And she's kind of short. But she HATES when someone brings it up, so she will glare at them until they run away.
Other stuff: She's a 13-year-old psychopathic murderer, who is working on being nicer. She's failing at it. Also, she's insane, because she's me. Yeah. And she's a real pessimist about everything. And she likes making fun of people. And making comments about world domination and evil unicorns.
Worst fear: Zombie toddlers. She doesn't like zombie or toddlers. They're evil.

Thrust Ominous said...

Just want to let y'all know I've been stalking you up until now.

Nixion Strange said...

Name: Nixion Strange

Age: 15

Magic: Adept

Adept Ability/s: Bone Breaking – Tesseract

Gender: Male

Appearance: Nixion is thin, just taller than the average 14 year old with brown eyes that carry a dark look in them. He wears a protective jacket on special occasions, but most of the time, Nixion just wears black leather jacket, black jeans and a t- shirt. Black boots cover his feet and he carries a machete with him at all times.

Personality: Nixion Strange is very prone to mood swings, but he is rarely happy and most of his moods are dark and violent. He hates almost everything and everyone, and enjoys killing.

History: At the age of ten, Nixion was kidnapped by a Sorcerer criminal and was forcibly taught the Bone Breaking Adept discipline. This was done with an insane combination of brainwashing and extreme torture upon Nixion which eventually changed something in his mind, thus creating his sudden mood swings. Finally, at 11, Nixion was abruptly released with no warning whatsoever. To this day Nixion attempts to fight the brainwashing done on him which also explains his over-the-top violence at times. Nixion, now driven insane through all the torture he experienced, became a brutal for of personified evil and spent the next three years murdering people. It was a messy and blood-drenched life which soon led back to Australia where he attacked the Australian Sanctuary. After almost killing the Grand Mage, Zathract Mist and a few other people stopped Nixion and arrested him where before standing trial. Nixion was kept in prison for a year before having his hearing and, amazingly, he managed to regain most of his sanity in that time. A year passed and Nixion found Zathract Mist arguing against having Nixion prosecuted. In the end, he was released into the open again under the statement that he was insane at the time of his crimes. A year after he was released, Nixion Strange was saved by Zathract Mist from a horde of zombies and the two kind of latched on to each other afterwards. It isn’t safe to say they are friends at all, but they are allies but also seem to be arguing constantly over almost everything.
Nixion Strange lives in Australia and helps Zathract Mist on cases for the Australian Sanctuary.

Best night ever!!!!

Zathract Mist said...

Name: Zathract Mist
Age: 15
Magic: Elemental + Adept (Not yet reached The Surge)
Adept Power: Necromancy
Gender: Male

Personality: Zathract is relatively cheerful, though is very determined when it comes to a case. He generally despises anyone with evil or intentionally harmful intentions and sees himself as one of the people to stop them. He feels the need to stop these people due to multiple people he had known in the past being murdered in front of him.
Zathract will tell an occasional joke but mostly sticks to whatever topic he and whoever else are discussing.

Appearance: Zathract has long black hair that covers the back of his head and falls over his ears, blocking them from view. His eyes are emerald green and will stare into your soul, should he deem it necessary. His clothes consist of a black jacket, black pants and a black shirt, all made by Kassd None who is one of the best tailors in Australia.
He carries around expensive sunglasses at all times, though does not usually wear them, and his boots are also made by Kassd (Zathract has a natural liking for black).
Zathract's gloves channel his Necromancy Magic.

Nixion Strange said...

Hey Derek, I've got a question as well
Me and a few people on the forums had a disagreement about it, so I was wondering
Would a Necromancer have power without their object? They say power, but just wild and hard to direct power, and I say little to no power

Thrust Ominous said...

Ohh.., we're all asking for name uses? I feel like crying when I realize mine isn't worthy. But maybe it is. If all the character does is tell people to stop making fun of him.. Hmm... Derek...?

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

Mist accidentally spelled "lose" wrong. Instead he said "loose". So I freaked out at his spelling error. And "loose" rhymes with "moose". So Mist is a moose.

But I'm the only one allowed to call him that, because he'll try to kill anyone else who does.


(Actually, he did try to kill me, but I'm just too awesome.)

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

About where I can Get Posters and Postcards :(
I don't just want them, I NEED them!!

Georgina Howlett said...

@Nixion - It's said in the books that Necromancers choose to channel their power into objects so its easier for them to control, so logic suggests that without their object (eg when Wreath's cane got snapped) their power flows back into them (as shown in the books) and it may become harder to focus.

Name: Kestrel LeStarre

Age: 17

Magic: Adept-Sigilist

Recent History: She was China's student until Death Bringer. She was doing something in the UK for China when Eliza Scorn attacked, so she wasn't there. When she got back, it was just a huge explosion site, and she didn't know anything about what happened until she found Skulduggery's hat. She went to America in order to gather enough power to fight him, and because of her friendship with Zafira Kerias, the Grand Mage, she became Administrator.

Best Friend: Maralie Charm

Weapons: Twin katanas ehich she wears in sheathes on her back, with black blades. They have the ability to take souls with a touch(she can deactivate that if she wants to) and were found in the same cave as Lord Vile's armour in Playing With Fire. Also, two throwing knives, also with black blades, which she keeps in boot sheathes.

Appearance: My old profile picture: http://www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl=en&client=firefox-a&sa=N&tbo=d&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&biw=1366&bih=531&tbm=isch&tbnid=sKwlC6ouT-JxaM:&imgrefurl=http://dereklandy.blogspot.com/2012/10/frankenkids.html&docid=RfoX2lWkEdQXUM&imgurl=http://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-fYQZ1S9Kgak/AAAAAAAAAAI/AAAAAAAAAIU/mdIToKwM8wY/s512-c/photo.jpg&w=512&h=512&ei=07XXUPSVHIiQ9QTOyYGgAg&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=424&vpy=122&dur=893&hovh=145&hovw Approximately 5' 6"

I'm not going to ask to be in one of your books, Derek. I don't like other people controlling my destiny. Also, it would be weird to have other people read about me. Also, everyone else is asking, and i NEVER do what everyone else does. Also, there are so many requests you probably wouldn't listen to mine if I submitted one. Also, you haven't said anything in 10 minutes, and probably aren't on anymore. Would be cool to see names I recognize from the blog though! I'm not sure why I gave this speech, except why not?

hey he talked to us so i can hardly complain i just gotta get my Blogspeaks together once i know he's offline

NJ: Unfortunately they're not publicly available, but what you COULD do is ask HarperCollins or Derek's publicist Mary for some- Mary is on twitter (@marysbookstuff) so you could try that or send HC an email?

Another good place to get posters is Waterstones etc. if you tell them you want the posters after they take them down, they might save you them and give you them. That's how Becky got some of hers!

Nixion Strange said...

Ah, but Georgina, it's said often in the books Necromancers can't use that power without an object

nights.raven said...

lol it is late there, so i wouldnt be surprised :P

Thrust Ominous said...

He left right after I came so...

Zafira Kerias said...

Kessie and i are from the USA so we cant go to Waterstones and if i ask the HC lady really nicely she might? I really want a poster i have only the books and the card from Derek other than that nothing of mine is sp related at all

Georgina Howlett said...

@Nixion: I've never read that anywhere. Their power doesn't need to be channeled to be used as far as I know... Any quotes?

Eve the ROCK said...

Sorry, guys. I, er.... I knocked Derek unconscious with a live chicken....

Nixion Strange said...

Skulduggery himself says in Death Bringer (page 163 my copy)

"That's the problem with Necromancy. It's a powerful magic, absolutely it is, but it's no unstable it needs to be housed in something to make sure it can be controlled."

Hi Derek. I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas.

I don't know if you are still around or not. I hope so. I sure could use a bit of Christmas cheer and you always bring a smile to my face.

Oh yes one of the most interesting things about ny character.
Collects necromancer weapons from necromancers he's killed forcing them to give him their powers.
Collection includes, guitar pick, unicorn horn, gloves and his favourite a gold encrusted sabre initialled ET

Georgina Howlett said...

@Zafira: That sucks about Waterstones! I'm sure Mary would consider it, yes, so it's worth a shot! I remember one of my friends asked whom attended the focus group in 2010 and he got some sent to him.

Hi Kallie!

Georgina Howlett said...

@Nixion: Well then you have your answer. "make sure it can be controlled" - controlled, not used. It can be utilised but not controlled as well without an object.

@Kestrel: Ooh. Well maybe that means also that the energy can be released but not focused at all then- still can be used, but not focused!

Eden Threatening said...

Georgina, I don't think that's the exact quote; it's when Melancholia is attacking val on the pier.
