Stratford Picture House

You may have noticed me being pretty quiet over the last week or so, and for this I have a very good reason. I am writing a book. I'm over 115,000 words in but DEAR LORD I'm at that stage when I don't know if it'll EVER be finished. I'm supposed to be filling in the blanks right now- linking up scenes and sequences and getting the chapters in order and writing any little bits that I've left empty. But I'm still no closer to the end. How can this BE?

But before I get back to work, I have been asked to remind you all that my event at the Stratford Picture House on April 5th is the only public event I'll be doing for The Maleficent Seven. For those of you who don't know what a public event IS, it's basically me on stage yapping and answering questions for an hour, and then we go on to have a signing. All other appearances for TMS are just signings.

I've been asked to remind you about this because apparently there are lots of tickets available. Well, I'm ASSUMING there are lots of tickets available. The words used were "it's been slow to book", which means roughly the same thing. Maybe it's because it's the Easter holidays or it's the start of a weekend, but usually events pretty much sell out in a very short space of time. So Harper Collins publicity people are all going "uhhh... what's happening?"

Oh, and for those of you who have already booked tickets, don't you fret. If it IS a smaller crowd than usual, it just means the event will be more of a casual chat between all of us. And also you won't have to wait in line for hours.

But, uh, for all you others... book a ticket. Or something.

I'm getting back to work now. But before I do, two pictures of cats.

One cute.


One scary.

Yay new post

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

Why do you say Dear Lord when you are THE Golden God?

Melica Frost said...

Im just gonna do this collectively...
HEY GUYS!

Anonymous said...

Hey! Not really here now, though.

Bye, all!

Aisling Dubh said...

Only two more days until TMS I think I can last that long.

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

Hey, Mel and whoever else is here! I'm on my kindle so msd and wbd. Also, I'm going to investigate food in a few minutes:)

Derek, I hope you're not relinquishing your place in this world as The Golden God :O

Aisling Dubh said...

You got your kindle back then Ieni? It WAS you who's kindle was confiscated right?

Star Inkbright said...

Gah. After I got told by my good friend Melica that there was a new post, I had to spend ages trying to load the page . . .

I hate it when it won't load. D: Derek's blog often does that.

BUT ANYWAYS. HI!!!!

Shanna said...

Hey! :D PS. DON'T KILL TANITH!!! EVER!

Aisling Dubh said...

Thanks for telling us that there was a new post Mel :)

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

Hi,Star!
Yes, Aisling:) My dad pointed out where my mum had put it. It was embarrassingly obvious , but my mum still wants me to keep it downstairs. Obviously, I'm not going to let that happen...

Aisling Dubh said...

Well at least you got it back Ieni :)

Danie Coombs said...

omg u r the most amazing author ever.i have all skull books and the 8th comes out a week b4 my bday cant wait!

Melica Frost said...

No prob :)
Dont worry Shanna she doesnt die...

Aisling Dubh said...

Mel no telling us ANYTHING about TMS. I know that's not really something but please be careful. I don't want the story ruined.

Star Inkbright said...

*facepalm* And of course, after I finally got here, I copied the URL of the comment box to paste on the page with Derek's blog on (because I like to be able to make the comment window the size I like), only I COPIED the URL for Derek's blog instead of pasting it . . . So it went and started loading Derek's blog istead of the comments section. So I had to spend ANOTHER age getting Derek's blog to respond so I could get back here. Nice one, Star. Real smart. XD

Melica Frost said...

Ohh no I wont, I would much rather that you cryed/was happy/punched a tree because of the book and not me :)

Aisling Dubh said...

Now I'm really worried is it that bad Mel? Not the book. The book will obviously be excellent. I mean does something shocking happen. If it does don't say what it is just if something shocking yes or no. If you want to say yes or no that is.

Aisling Dubh said...

Did you punch a tree after reading it?

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

But, Mel, if I punched a tree, it might be you, especially if it looks stalkery;)
OMG, fromage fraud are so nice asdfghjkl. Is it possible to fangirl about a food? But also Doctor Who and TMS in the same week asdfghjkl!

Melica Frost said...

Well...yes...I did...but thats not the point, it really depends on what characters you like, what ones you dont and how you view all the things that happen...so I cant really say :)

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

*frais. Yes, autocorrect, I'm aware it's not English.

Aisling Dubh said...

Ok that's makes sense Mel. Is your hand alright? I'd say punching a tree hurt.

Melica Frost said...

Ohh I may have punched one of our kind Ieni...NOOO! But ohh well :)
My hands fine now :) but I think the tree is pretty broken...

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

You do realise that it was me who you punched...? ;)

Luciana said...

THAT CAT IS SO CUTE

Aisling Dubh said...

Gtg I have football training. It's soo cold. It's been snowing on of all day. Well it was icy snow that didn't stick but it's still snow.

Bye

Melica Frost said...

Well...sorry..? But when you read it you will understand...I hope... ;)

Star Inkbright said...

*laughs*

Ah, everything becomes more complicated when you're trees. :)

At the end of Christmas, we always chop up and burn our Christmas trees. *grins at thought of burning Melica and Ieni's relatives*

And people chop down trees ALL THE TIME . . . :)

FOURS AIS! :(
HI SCÁTH! :)

Georgina Howlett said...

oh Derek

You do make me laugh

Melica Frost said...

Hey Luce :)
WHAT DO YOU MEAN? BURNING MY TREE FAMILY? AND IENI'S TOO?

Luciana said...

i can't believe Cassidy is sending me a poster, omg

i love her so much

Star Inkbright said...

*shifty eyes*

Er.

Um.

*giggles*

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

Bye Aisling, Hi Clover!

Georgina - The S.P News thing you do is amazing/epic/awesome!

NOOO! We have an artificial tree or something, so we always reuse it:) MY RELATIVES! *breaks down and sobs* That's a breech of Tree Rights! Tree Cruelty!

That's so awesome, Clover! What's the poster of? Because I know you were looking for a Tanith one.

Star Inkbright said...

We have an artificial tree, but we get a real live one every year as well.

It's The Ritual Burning of the Christmas Tree and not doing it is against the laws and traditionsof the Taylor family! :)

Luciana said...

JUST A SKULDUGGERY POSTER C:

TANITH POSTERS DON'T EXIST

YET

BUT TOM WANTS TO MAKE THEM C:

Melica Frost said...

Aww ok, its fine Im pretty sure my family arent in the christmas tree business...

Star Inkbright said...

Bbs! :(

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

Nooo! But isn't it dead by the time you get it?

Uh, that's a strange ritual...

It's still awesome, though!:)

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

Byebye, Star!:(

Yay, me and Mel can just run around and then stalk Derek unsuspectingly by being trees. Nobody ever suspects trees! (except Narnia)

Melica Frost said...

Yeah! We can follow him about outside and just freeze if he looks at us ! Hmm...but how to get me (who is in scotland) and Ieni (who is in england) to Ireland...

Hello, Star and Kribu!

There's no way my parents would let me go to Norwich or London -_-

They're standing behind you with a bow primed and a scathing eye again, aren't they?

~distracts the "people" by throwing kittens on them... Kitten who have given in to their dark side~
Mwahahahaahaaaa

Also, the book is going to be awesome! YOU CAN DO IT!
But then, the question of capabilities was never a point, was it?
So instead I'll just say: IT HAD BETTER BE READY BEFORE AUGUST!

I think I might be an evil kitten in disguise....

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

Hello, Leni!
Hiya, Bsoithea!

And by the way, I will be distant and might possible disappear unexpectedly never to return... Or at least never to return during the duration of the present conversations which are about to be started.

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

PHOENIIIIIIIIIIIIIXXXXXXXXX! ~hugs~

Dogeared said...

Links might help? I found the Stratford info, but it says on their page that only books bought at the event will be signed.

Is that true?

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

Hiya, Melica!
How're you?

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

@Phoenix

I haven't seen you anywhere!
Well, I have two emails, but I mostly use lollipopskyril@gmail.com in Blogland. 8]

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

@Phoenix
So what's up with you? :D

Melica Frost said...

OMG I LOVE THE PIANO GUYS!

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

Melica Frost said...

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

@Melica
LOL!
That's so awesome!!
My Blogland brother showed me, and I apparently thanked him a thousand times because I utterly adore them!
Don't you just love the Mission Impossible one? And Nearer My God to Thee?? And Over the Rainbow??? And Titanium???? And.... Ok, Basically ALL of them? xD

Luciana said...

THANK GEORGINA

SHE'S WONDERFUL AND SENT ME THEM!

I did find some of them, though...!

Queen Flora Ophelia of the Flowers; Leader of the New Land of Stickers; Prophet of the New Order; General of the Shadow People said...

Greetings to you too, Skyril!
*graciously accepts lollipop*

I have nothing to give in return...uh...ummm....

*awkwardly picks the nearest flower, which is, unfortunately, wilting*

Um...here.

Sorry :/

Melica Frost said...

Yes, I love them all SO MUCH! I was just watching titanium!

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

@Flora
:D
It's beautiful! Thank you! :]
~puts flower in my hair~

How're you doing?

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

@Melica
GAH! This is so cool >.<
It's about TIME I found someone who has the same musical tastes as myself :D

Mary Bob Tomkinson said...

In which Ali uses her school blog to comment because she got no sleep... hey y'all It's Kids Konnect's real person account.

Flame Phoenix (Fawkes)~roleplaying said...

Eh, I shall tell you over email.

Drop me one, shall you?

FlamePhoenix25@gmail.com



Hey everyone else! I haven't met any of you, 'cept for Mel and Scath.

Luciana said...

OH

IF YOU GO TO A WHSMITHS ONE YOU NEED TO HAVE BOUGHT TMS FROM WHSMITHS TO GET IN, APPARENTLY

Melica Frost said...

Oohhh yeah...HEY FLAME! Hows it going?!? :D *is very sorry she forgot to say hi earlier*

@Skyril
Theres a couple of people at my school that love them and they kinda introduced me to them aswell XD

Flame Phoenix (Fawkes)~roleplaying said...

Oh and Sky, the reason I don't go on is cos I don't read :/


Hey Flora and Time is an Allusion.


I'm calling you Tiaa.

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

@Time is an Illusion
Hellooo!
I commented at you a little ways back... Now that you changed your account, shall I call you Time? Or Illusion? Orrrr.... TI?

Mary Bob Tomkinson said...

*awkwardly tries to figure out what is going on*
*has never seen a new post early enough to actually be in the area when people are talking*

Flame Phoenix (Fawkes)~roleplaying said...

I is good, Melicia. Why do you have TMS? .-.

Mary Bob Tomkinson said...

@Skyril Oh! Call me Ali!
I think I've seen you on here before...

Star Inkbright said...

But Time is an Allusion, we talk here ALL THE TIME . . . :)

I come here to talk literally every day. :P SOMEONE'LL be talking here at almost any time . . . :)

Luciana said...

How the hell do you get to Guildford from Sheffield!?

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

@Phoenix
Ah, Ok, well email me when you get the chance. :}
lollipopskyril@gmail.com is my email, but for some reason I didn't connect it with my blogger account to my gmail account so I can't actually log in right now... :/

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

Gr!
Brb!

Star Inkbright said...

We have a pretty good community here, if I do say so myself. :)

Yeah, we all need lives. *giggles*

@Falme: Lots of shops have released TMS early . . .

Mary Bob Tomkinson said...

I'm usually kind of scared to talk to you people... you all seem to know each other already.

Star Inkbright said...

*Flame:

Melica Frost said...

Ummm...people keep asking me this and honestly ...Im not too sure? I preordered it, then a week or two ago I got an email saying that it had been dispatched...so then on Saturday I went to Waterstones and picked it up, I read it, put it back on my shelf and went to punch a tree :)

Flame Phoenix (Fawkes)~roleplaying said...

Ali, reason for that is cos we got to know each other :3

Mary Bob Tomkinson said...

I'm getting that impression yes. The internet is pretty scary though, you could all be creepers ;)

Star Inkbright said...

We only know each other coz we come here and see each other. *has been coming here for over a year*
But we most of us live in differet countries and very rarely have any of us met each other, so meh. -_-

Don't be scared of us! We don't bite! Well, we bite food. And I''m sure quite a few of us bite people as well. Wel, most of us probably. But to hold that against us is discrimination. *nods* I think.

Sorry, totally failing to not look scary here . . . :P

But you do find some very awesome nice people here. It's why I'm here. :)

Queen Flora Ophelia of the Flowers; Leader of the New Land of Stickers; Prophet of the New Order; General of the Shadow People said...

@Skyril
*sigh of relief*

Ah, thank goodness you liked the flower!
I'm good, thank you for asking, and yourself? :)

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

@Mel
~is jealous of your school~
NOBODY I know knew about them except Joe, my Blogland brother, and then he only kind of likes them xD

@Ali
Oooh, cool, alright!
And just so you know, there's often people around or nearby in Blogland, if you comment and hang out for a while, generally other people will show up :D
And I haven't been coming on very frequently, but I'm [once again] trying to change that xD
Oh, and I just saw that you said we all seem to know each other already? Not especially. There are a TON of people I don't know, and those of whom I Don't, I greet... Then we know each other. :D
In the beginning everybody was super friendly. Actually, most people [at least of the ones I've met] are still that way :]

Mary Bob Tomkinson said...

I MADE A PROFILE PICTURE!!!

And I'd come here more often if tumblr didn't own my soul.

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

@Ali
By the way, you got the 100th comment!
I always think that's cool. I mean, sure, the 200th and 201st are awesome, but I still like the in-betweens!

Star Inkbright said...

The people that were here when I first came on are mostly different to the ones on now. But the older and newer Bloglands ae equally awesome. :)

Actually, I'm newer than Flame and Skyril . . . -_-

But when I'm here with Fabi and Mara and Ieni and people, I'm the oldest. :)

Flame Phoenix (Fawkes)~roleplaying said...

I'm not going to live after the next two weeks...

;-;

CP2 to finish, and TMS to read ;-;
Feels.

You got a butcher's knife and you,
You cut me in half,
You stole my heart;
And away you laughed.

Mary Bob Tomkinson said...

Ahhh 100th comment never got that before! (i usually show up around 2000) but I g2g, my online class is over. Goodbye strange blog people!
ALI OUT

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

@Ali
That's very true xD
But fortunately, I've only met three or four in the last 3 years, and they weren't stalkers, just annoying/mean/crazy-in-a-bad-way.
Most of us are pretty much awesome 8]

Star Inkbright said...

I don't want to get Facebook or Twitter or Tumblr or anything else, because then I'll want to spend time on them and I want to keep my time . . . D:

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

Farewell, Ali!
See you another time!

Melica Frost said...

Bye Ali! Nice to meet you :)

Star Inkbright said...

:( FOURS TIME!

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

@Bsoithea
I know what you mean xD
I don't have any, and I don't think I want to get them either :P

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

Gr, I've actually got to go too -_-

Skyril A.K.A the Vociferous Chatterer, Loyal Forever and Always, The Ever-Present, the Pluviophile said...

BYE, FOLKS!
Hopefully I'll see y'all again before very much time has elapsed! I'm kinda wonky, so that may, or may not happen O_O
JUST DON'T FORGET ME!
I WILL be back eventually :D
~sets out bowls of purple lollipops and confetti bombs~
Ta-ta!

Melica Frost said...

Weellll I need to go so I hope you all have an awesome day bye! :)

Aisling Dubh said...

Hello I have returned from football training in the snow that refused to stick.

Flame Phoenix (Fawkes)~roleplaying said...

Aww. Bye Sky and Ali!


*hugs both*

Star Inkbright said...

:( FOURS SKYRIL! FOURS MEL! :(

WB ASH! :)

Queen Flora Ophelia of the Flowers; Leader of the New Land of Stickers; Prophet of the New Order; General of the Shadow People said...

Bye Skyril, nice meeting you!

Ah, Star I didn't realise you were here too!

Star Inkbright said...

I'm not here, I'm over there. *points a metre away*

@self: What were you trying to say there?

Self: Um . . . I don't actually know.

@self: *sighs* Then why did you say it?

Self: ?

@self: ?

Self: Meh. All disconnected atm . . .

Flame Phoenix (Fawkes)~roleplaying said...

*waves le garlic baguette around*


Yes I can do this and not get arrested.


I MIGHT BE VAL ON SATURDAY.


She'll be in Ireland on Thursday. God save us..

Flame Phoenix (Fawkes)~roleplaying said...

STAR, remember when there was eight of you?

Aisling Dubh said...

Wbd

Star Inkbright said...

@Flame: Yes, actually. ACHEIVEMENT! *never usually really remembers anything*

Yay for Ivy! :)

Flame Phoenix (Fawkes)~roleplaying said...

Star, do you have FB?

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Guys today we gotta be EXTREMELY careful commenting we need comment space for tomorrow for the TMS Celebration tomorrow at MIDNIGHT Irish time for those in America at 8PM EST TOMORROW

Flame Phoenix (Fawkes)~roleplaying said...

Brb, eating.

Star Inkbright said...

No, sorr, I don't have fb. :(

Aisling Dubh said...

So midnight tomorrow Zaf?

Luciana said...

Star, are you going to Leeds?

Aisling Dubh said...

Maybe the snow will stick tonight and I'll wake up tomorrow morning and there'll be snow everywhere. Hopefully.

Flame Phoenix (Fawkes)~roleplaying said...

Aisling, that's unlikely, though.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Correct see I hate to ask Derek to stop writinf and a post for us and I really rather not so as we have this one we just gotta not spam

Aisling Dubh said...

I know but I can hope.

Actually I don't want it to stick because then I might not be able to get to a bokshop on Thursday to get TMS.

Aisling Dubh said...

How many comment spaces do you think we'll need for the celebration Zaf?

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Eh well if we say reach 400-600 comments before midnight tis ok even on te Requim Ball we managed to have an After Party and the After Party's After Party

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

*hands Derek a cookie*
Progress will come. And so will people, for that matter. :P

*throws cookies at the rest of Blogland*

Howdy.

Aisling Dubh said...

so we have all of tonight and tomorrow (Irish time) to try not get past about 600 comments?

We SHOULD be able to do that. Maybe if everyone comments a bit less than usual until then just in case though.

Maybe Derek will post again before midnight tomorrow though. In case he doesn't we'll just be more careful.

Zaf I hope we can do it.

Aisling Dubh said...

Hi Taia

Aisling Dubh said...

*cookies

I hope he joins in. That would make the whole celebration SOO much better.

Derek please join our TMS celebration. Your presence would improve the celebrations 1000 times.

If you're worried about running out of comment space, we used to have an 'Overflow Blog' to fall back on, when that happened.
Could you go with something like that? If the comment space overflows, somebody could just put up a post on another blog for the party to continue, and post the link at the end of the last page. ^^

Hiya, Aisling. :)

Aisling Dubh said...

Taia that could work too.

But it'd probably be nicer to have the celebration all on Derek's page.

But that's a good thing to know about.

Who decided to have a TMS celebration?

Or is there a celebration for every book?

It's a very good idea.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

I decided actually lol I thought it would be a nice way for long time Bloglandians and new ones to meet and all

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

*nods* That it would. Derek, should make an appearance.
*pokes the Golden God* Please?~ :3

*nods, again*
Just an idea, if you do find yourselves running out of space. :)

I'm not sure.
I think Zaf came up with the idea to hold another Requium Ball, but because it made more sense to hold the Ball on the date(ish) annually, a suggestion for a TMS celebration rose instead. A discussion followed, and thus the Epic TMS Celebration of Epicality was born.

Or something like that. :P

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

*same date(ish), annually,

In any case, it was an awesome idea.

Aisling Dubh said...

Zaf it's an amazing idea.

Does everyone know about it?

Wait if we don't want to waste space here then why don't we just go back to the last post and comment there?

Aisling Dubh said...

Or do we only ever commen on the most recent post?

Alice (Or Tyler to some) said...

I'm so jelly of people who got to meet Roger Allen and Ben >:|

Aisling Dubh said...

*comment

Hi Tyler

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

Hm, I think that's another thing to be done if a blog post runs out of comment space, actually. Forgot about that one. xD

As for going there now, we could do. ^^

Hi, Tyler.

Alice (Or Tyler to some) said...

Hi Aisling and everyone

Alice (Or Tyler to some) said...

If we flare switching blog posts it will take me a while to get there

Alice (Or Tyler to some) said...

Flare?? I mean are

Aisling Dubh said...

So will we or won't we?

If we are we should leave a message here as the last comment telling everyone else to comment on the other blog post until the celebration starts.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

No we'll be fine guys

Aisling Dubh said...

Or at least until tomorrow evening.Or whatever time it is wherever you are at the time it's the evening Irish time.

Aisling Dubh said...

Are you sure Zaf there's 27 hours to go until the celebration starts.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

IF we should get close to 600 then we go

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

*tilts head*
How about, if comment space reduces a little to much in the next 27 hours, commenting could move there THEN.
I think we'll probably be okay for space, though. ^^

Star Inkbright said...

Hi again!

Msd, csgd. :(

Star Inkbright said...

When we fill up posts, we these days move back to the previous post . . .

We decided doing that was better than an overflow blog.

If you look back to whenever it was, we filled up TONS of blog posts and had to go back quite few months and then to the previous YEAR. *laughs*

Aisling Dubh said...

Hi Star

yes IF we need to we will. That's probably the best way to do it.

Aisling Dubh said...

wow that's pretty far back Star.

Star Inkbright said...

What you said about newer minions meeting older ones Zaf . . . I like that. :)

It hurts me that some of the awesome people I know don't know some of the other awesome people I know, because they're all so awesome and should know each other . . .

Star Inkbright said...

Yeah . . . I think we posted a lot of comments in them days and Derek didn't post posts that often. :)

I can't remember when it was, but it can't have been that long away from 2011. We were in 2012 and we went back to 2011, yes. *nods*

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

Oh, look, Zaf got there first. :P

Hiya, Star. :3


On another note, I just feel I should throw this out there:

Aisling Dubh said...

Yes I'd like to meet some older minions.

I've only recently started coming here. I started last month. I've been a SP fan for a good while though.

I'm so glad I came here. I've met loads of amazing wonderful people.

Alice (Or Tyler to some) said...

SO to sum up, We are staying hereof

Star Inkbright said...

Was just watching this cooking show, and whenever they said caster sugar they said it "carster sugar" in a Southern England accent, and I always imitated them. "CARSter sugar." XD

I mean, I say paragrarph and marster and crarft and whatever else coz I used to live down SOuth and it sounds better, but I say grass Northerninly and bath Northernly and most things Northernly, and I don't recall having heard 'caster sugar' i a Southern accent before . . . :P

I generally refer to the South as 'down there' and the North as 'up here.' For example, I often say 'we moved up here' in sentences. :)

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Yup!

Star Inkbright said...

Uh. No offense to anyonewho lives in Southern England. I love Southern accents, anyways. :)

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

I think Brittish people sound the same

Now Em and NJ both are Irish but have completely different accents

Flip and Bibble said...

'Scary' cat picture looks like my cat...

I give up, I have asked my mother to rethink about whether it's possible to get me to that event or not. It kind of starts an hour before her work finishes...so I may have to continue badgering about the signings on the 6th..I NEED TO KNOW DETAILS FOR THAT ONE!!! *breakdown*

*Switches off crazy mode* Okay...hello anyone...can't be bothered to look at previous posts, what's happening here?

Star Inkbright said...

*hugs Ais* And we met an amazing person too - you! :)

I'm glad I came here too. It's improved me as a person, I think. Made me more apprecaitive of people and given me better people skills. :P

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

I've been here for the most part of two years.
But I'm not exactly the most frequent of visitors.

*laughs*
I don't really speak in any specific way. Sometimes I'll say "marster" or "crarft", sometimes not.
Generally, I think I sort of go for something in between. :P

Aisling Dubh said...

Zaf threre are loads of different Irish accents.

There's different Dublin accents even.

Flip and Bibble said...

Brits? Sounding the same? I'd hate to think my poshness sounds like the chavs I sit next to in Maths...

Flip and Bibble said...

Then there are the ones who come from the places that pronounce things the same ways Americans do, just less accenty and I should shut up now, I don't really know what I'm talking about...WAFFLES!

Aisling Dubh said...

*there

Hi BJ

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Lol sorry and uh BJ discussing the TMS Celebration

*crosses fingers*

Oh I hope Derek decides to listen!

Star Inkbright said...

WHAAT??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

*absolute stunnedness*

ZAF, WE BRITIHS ARE ONE OF THE COUNTRIES WITH THEMOST VARIATION I OUR ACCENTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't know many accents, but I know strong Yorkshire accents, posh Southern accnts (generalising a bit there, sorry), sort of know Cockney accents, and know what I would considor normal, which I can't really describe beacuse it's just . . . normal . . . nothing really stands out about it. :P

And most of the above accents are COMPLETELY different from each other.

Comparing a strong Yorkshire accent to a posh Suthern accent islike comparing an American accent to a British one.

You just haven't met enough British people. :P

Ah, I should probably explain my brain. I explode angrily and make huge great speeches without actually being more than a few percent angry then utterly forget about it five minutes later and make few grudges. Just in case you thought I was actually angry at you. :) Which you might have done, now I come to think of it.

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

There are plenty of different British accents.
To be more specific, there are plenty of English accents.
I find it too hard not to laugh when I hear South Wales' accents, though. "Phenomenal" was particularly ridiculous.

I think that's just me, though. :P

Flip and Bibble said...

Ink, I agree. I have an accent in common with one person in my school, and then everyone else is completely different to each other.

The TMS celebration is on a school night...I will have to do some careful sneaking to make it...

Star Inkbright said...

I often want to say 'chavvy accent,' but then I might have to explan it to them foreigners. XD

Apparently I don't have a Northern accent, according to my mum. O_O

I don't know, not really hearing my own voice . . . :)
