Can't Think Of A Title For This Post

It's getting harder and harder to find the time to watch movies these days, so you'd think my criteria for the films I DO get to watch would improve, right? Like, I should probably make the decision to ONLY watch movies that have a chance of being actually good, and to stay away from films I've heard are terrible. Right? Right.

But where's the fun in that?

Besides, adopting such a sensible attitude to movie-watching would have robbed me of the delight of realising that two films I expected to be absolute rubbish turned out to be surprisingly good fun. Let's take the first one— a sequel to one of the worst films I've seen in the last few years.

GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra was an awful film. I mean, it was just dreadful. It was so bad that I felt compelled to talk about it on this very Blog, way back in 2009. Here is what I said about it:

"I now hate this movie, for it is awful. It is worse than X-Men 3. It is even worse than Transformers 2. I have not hated a film so much since I saw Van Helsing. Van Helsing was directed by the same man. There are lessons in life I should learn, and yet learn them I do not."

Ah, good times. This was back when I was writing Dark Days. What a fantastic book that was.

Sorry, where was I? Oh yes.

The first GI Joe was horrible. It had a stupid story and stupid action and stupid characters and everything was stupid. It had the worst CGI I'd seen in a long time and they'd taken a monumentally dumb approach to the whole thing. They gave the Joes super robot suits, for god's sake.

So naturally, knowing how much I hated the first one, I went ahead and watched the sequel. And maybe it's because I expected it to be every bit as bad— but it was actually pretty cool.

The story was still dumb. COBRA'S ultimate plan was just daft. But there were so many cool bits in it. The ninjas on the mountain. Adrianne Palicki jogging. Cobra Commander's AWESOME outfit. Adrianne Palicki in the red dress. Bruce Willis and his house of guns. Adrianne Palicki doing stuff.

And the two best scenes were between the Rock and Channing Tatum. The video game and the sharpshooting. Funny writing, funny performances- if every scene was as good as these two, it would have been an amazing movie. As it was, it was fun, action-packed, quite stupid, but there is NOTHING about it you'd hate after watching it.

Oh, but there is ONE moment I should mention. To show how high tech the Joes are, they're given all these cool gadgets at the start. One of these gadgets is a pair of gloves that MELTS THROUGH a chainlink fence. Melts THROUGH it! How awesome is that?? No more waiting around for the extra few seconds while they cut through the fence with stupid, old-fashioned fence cutters! No way! Now they save VITAL SECONDS by using these gloves! And the best thing? THEY GLOW BRIGHT ORANGE! So instead of dumb soldiers cutting through a fence with stupid fence cutters in the dark, being all sneaky and stuff, now the Joes can cut through the fence and alert any enemy within a five mile radius to their presence at the same time! Yippee!

(But apart from this moment of dumbness, it's not a bad movie. I swear.)

And the other film I thought would be awful was Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.

I heard this was diabolical. It's not. There are parts of this that are SO COOL. The witches are the best witches ever in the world EVER. They're evil and hideous but no two are alike. The make-up is brilliant. Famke Janssen is the head witch, and it takes guts to turn one of the most beautiful women in the world into a hideous monster, but they do it, and she's utterly brilliant.

It's a lovely idea at its core— what would Hansel and Gretel be like when they grew up?— and while it's set in a vague time, hundreds of years ago, the language and the music are modern day, which adds to the anarchic quality of it all.  That said, the American accents sported by Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton are a tad distracting, especially seeing as how everyone else has a thick European accent. But come on... Renner's cool and Gemma Arterton is Gemma Arterton. Mmmm Gemma Arterton...

Word of warning, though. This looks like a family film, like a slightly dark fairytale, but it's not. It revels in bad language and gore. There are exploding heads a-plenty. So naturally I loved it.


I don't know if I'd ever watch either of these movies for a second time, but they were pretty damn good the first time out. Which was a really nice surprise.

Camp Half-blood would be better, I think, because we wouldn't be supposed to kill each other.

Either could be fun, though.

@Adra: I like how it's all white. Sometimes, when the windows aren't absolutely covered in snowdrifts, I stare at the snowflakes and think they're like people. We're born up in the sky, and we fall down the route of life, and some of us are travelled far by the breeze, and some of us go mostly in a straight line, and we pass by many of otehr snowflakes. Some snowflakes we stay near for a while, but eventually all of them blow away from us. And we're all different unique patterns. And we all think we're getting somewhere. And then we hit the ground and die.
And some of us melt or get squished still in the air, they die young, before their time.
And we're utterlu beautiful, our lievs, but we're also cold and have hearts of ice and can freeze people to death.
And there are so many of us.
And one day, the planet will be too warm for any of us to survive, and bye-bye.
And also . . . no matter how different our patterns are, no matter how far apart we are, no matter how different our journeys to the ground - we're all white, we're all snowflakes, and we all hit the ground and die.

Ez stays that technically snowflakes usually stick around for a bit after they reach the ground and that they don't die until they melt, and she's right, but I like to think of us suddenly hitting the floor and POOF.
And some of us are looking down, seeing it coming.
But some of us are occupied with other things, and it is a shock.

Fabi, when will you remember to watch the comment count?

#ChaseForBook9

That's an...interesting analogy. [considers]

#ChaseForBook9

Hunter said...

Thanks . . .

Snow inspires good analogies.

I like snow.

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Oh good, I got my own rant.

A deep rant. I approve. And here is where my beliefs come in. After the snow melts it is absorbed until evaporated, and then it falls again. *shrugs* energy circles

And good job, Fabi

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

On Sports Day, me and my friend spent an hour and a half lying on our backs staring up at this tree talking.

Well, I was also drawing the tree, but that's irrelevant.

And she said that trees were like life, and that every leaf symbolised the death of a person. Some people died near the trunk, and they'd never got very far in life, but then some people got further and died along one of the thicker branches, and some people had died right at the top of the thin branches and they'd got very far.

. . . It's kind of chilling, to stare at a tree and look at each leaf as the death of a person.
And it's really sad to see how near the trunk people have died, sad that they never got further . . .

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Everything ends

Hunter said...

@Adra: Reincarnation. *smiles slightly*

But you'll never get exactly the same snowflake again.

And this is why we should live life whilst we have it, coz we're never having it again, and we could hit the ground (or a passing aeroplane) any day. We can't think of stuff we will do, because we might never get there. We have to do stuff today.

. . .
Radioactive milkshakes excepted.

#ChaseForBookNine

Hunter said...

@Adra: But to end, something must first begin.

Where there is a negative, there is a positive.

You believe in balance, correct?

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Please don't say Yolo.

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*grins* it's much more deeper than you I ow. I've explained it in a Nameless post that I'll publish later but I am curious to hear what you think it is

Fabi~ said...

I dedicate this page to uniqueness and being yourself.

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*raises glass* I concur

Hunter said...

YOLO. *grins*

You should have told me TO say it. *laughs*

Mmh. But your power-of-the-earth whatsit . . . I'm not entirely sure your earth power and my ether stuff aren't one and the same.

Except we're using it in differnet ways.

But I don't know. You could be solely relying on power from this dimension, whereas I have a theory where the ether is dimensional fabric.

. . . I don't really know, and I don't have enough time to find out.

#ChaseForBookNine

Hunter said...

. . . Excelllant ded, Fabi.

An original is always worth more than a copy.

Hmm. Not quite sure how I got in this mood.

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Which mood?

September Sorbet said...

IS NOT HERE

Did ☂nyone see F☂bi's shunting blog? ☂nd F☂bi, if you're there, I put ☂ not-to-be-published post on there with ☂ question for you.

Fabi~ said...

Thanks...

Okay, Ember, I'll look at it. Nice name. See you. [hugs]

#ChaseForBook9

Hunter said...

The meaningful one.

Ones where I ponder the meaning of life and that are scary, because they're close to depression. Mad reckless moods are closer to mania, and they're better, beacuse I don't want to commit suicide when I'm manic.

Hey Ember. :)

As long as you don't suddenly snap, we're cool.

How long does the universe go on for?
How long is forever?
Where do black holes go to

*waves* hey. *takes another sip* I learned those from Hawking, Hunter.

Time is pear shaped. Universe in a nutshell

Hello Trip

Wbd, being important.

Actually not, but it sounds cooler than what I'm actually doing.

#ChaseForBook9

No where. Black holes supposedly rip the very atoms of those who go inside them apart.

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Hypothetically, but what we have are readings that have been interpreted a certain way.

September Sorbet said...

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Thank you Ember, that was deep.

But just imagine in your mind's eye- imagine the universe going on forever

sherlock pingu, dalek overlord of antarctia said...

stephen hawking has also proven that it is a possibility that black holes are like wormholes and actually lead to another layer of dimension such as aprrallel

Fabi~ said...

Replied to the reply, Ember. And I'll keep checking the post, most likely, so you don't have to comment it here.

#ChaseForBook9

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Im here so i can eat lunch

Hunter said...

@Adra:

How long does the universe go on for?
How long do you go on for? How long do I go on for? We never know exactly how long we'll exist. When we've found out how to tell when we'll die whilst we're still leaving - I mean, a method that can work for anyone everywhere, not just "I'll kill you tonight so you'll live till then" - maybe we can use it on the universe.
How long is forever?
Forever doesn't exist. Everything changes over time. It's nice to imagine things will last forever, though. However - how long is forever? You might as well ask how high a pencil can jump without assistance. The answer is, no amount.
Where do black holes go to
Black holes are portals to noexistance, I sometimes think. When we go through them, we won't exist, and so maybe I'll see all my imaginary friends on the same side of the glass wall. :)

I find that we always exist in one form or another, conscious or not. We are one. All is one and one is all

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*stands up* I'm going to Camp Half Blood. *begins to draw a portal*

If anyone would like to come

Hunter said...

Hey Flora. :)

@Adra: They're relative terms. My imaginary friends exist as much as I do, just I'm existant and they're nonexistant. Like, people discuss the differences between humans and animals, and yet humans are animals really.

#ChaseForBookNine

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits said...

Sounds more fun than sitting in silence, I'm coming too! *jumps through portal*

. . . Okay. *zooms over to Adra*

Good thing I'm not imaginary.

*lands in the middle of the court yard* we need to go to Midgar as well.

I think... I don't know what house I'd be jn

Thank you for not messing with my portal... We should assign houses to each other

I'm a complete Percy Jackson noob, I have the loosest understanding of it possible. You might need to guide me through it a bit.

#ChaseForBook9

Ill go i guess

Hunter said...

@Adra: How do you know? We could all be imaginings of some higher being.

But I'll attempt to stop pondering the world now . . .

I have to go for lunch, back in a bit.

The spider moved and I don't know where it is now! D:

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Bye Fabi! Bye Zaf?

*gasp* TRIP! HOW DARE YOU.

*frowns* I have a feeling... That you. Would be.

Hmmmm

I dunno. Zeus, Hades, Poseideon, Ares, Athena, Ceres, Haphaestus, Aphrodite, Bacchus, Hermes, um. Apollo and Diana

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Hunter, I feel like you would be Vulcan.

sherlock pingu, dalek overlord of antarctia said...

ill be hades

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

No im omint with! You! *goes by Adra* Hades for me

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits said...

Holy shit that's a lot of houses.

I have the whole boxed set, just haven't gotten around to reading them yet.

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*Haphaestus.

Trip? Hmmmm. I'm feeling Poseideon, but maybe Bacchus, just because of the wine.

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Dionysus is his name

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits said...

Yeah, I was about to suggest that, being a bartender and all.

ANYWAY, hello again! :) I'm back now, more prominently than before, though I'm still a bit msd

#chaseforbook9

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits said...

Do the houses pride any kind of beliefs or moral systems different to the others?

#ChaseForBook9

Fabi~ said...

Wait, are we at the Greek camp or the Roman one?

[confused]

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Okay Flora! We're at Camp Half blood if you want to join!

And I know. I use their roman names most of the time anyway...

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

The Greek one

Hunter said...

. . . Me and Ez discussed this before, except we never decided what I was in because we got sidetracked plotting Camp Half-Blood-domination.

#ChaseForBookNine

Fabi~ said...

Also, I'm back.

#ChaseForBook9

sherlock pingu, dalek overlord of antarctia said...

soo, do we find a quest?

Hunter said...

The Roman camp has a different name, plus it's on the other side of America.

(See, I've read these books.)

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*shrugs* or we can just hang out.

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

I'm from Hades cabin because I'm a Necromancer

Fabi~ said...

I've read the books as well, I was just confused by the use of the Roman names. Sorry.

#ChaseForBook9

sherlock pingu, dalek overlord of antarctia said...

im hades as well

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits said...

I'll go for Bacchus, because it seems like it would be fun to get the blessing of the god of wine and parties.

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Veni vidi Vici..

Also, I still don't know which house I'd be in....

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Sorry, Fabi! I'm a Latin nut

Fabi~ said...

S'okay, it's cleared up now.

Moi non plus...

Adra...maybe Apollo? I don't know, though.

#ChaseForBook9

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Adra? Zeus.

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*frowns* damn.

Hunter said...

. . .

I'll think about it.

I'm not really a huge believer in this-person-is-the-child-of-who. Someone is family if you love them.

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*nods*

...I'll just stick with Apollo, then.

*runs up to the rock climbing wall*

WOOOOO

*is quietly watching and does the archery*

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits said...

That's a nice sentiment Hunter...

(sorry I disappeared again - had to rant at someone on twitter because they were just so very very wrong)

. . . I don't think you're very Apollo-like, Adra.

No offense.

Elder Zafira Kerias said...

Bloody hell

I think Fabi might be a Hephaestus/Vulcan, since she likes making things and building things and stuff...

I can think of good reasons for almost any cabin, though, so... [shrugs]

#ChaseForBook9

Probably Athena, actually. *nods* okay. Athena then

*another sprout of lava explodes next to her, and she pulls her head away*

ARGH THIS IS SO DIFFICULT

*wonders whether or not I'll survive if I jump in the lava*

Not 100% sure, Adra. There are so many aspects to people. They don't just fall in one category.

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Okay, screw this... *valts her self upward with an almighty push, away from the wall*
*screams, her foot hitting another hold, just barely holding on to the next*

AAAAAAH. I'm going to die.
Right. Last words.
I seek the great Perhaps.

Niccolò Croatoan said...

Aretha would like me to mention that she finds it terribly amusing when grown men walk past her with slightly longer hair than she has.

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

It's a rock climbing wall that shoots out lava, actually...

Hunter said...

@Niccolo: ANd once again, you are correct.

Um.

*jumps in lava* *teleports out* Okay, not safe. *starts haling self* It doesn't hurt all that much, though. Burns your nerve endings off.

. . . This is a rather big healing job. Might exhaust me even with my extra energy supplies.

#ChaseForBookNine

Niccolò Croatoan said...

Oh, alright then. My only knowledge of Camp Half-Blood comes, once again, from Aretha, and she cannot tell me everything at once.

#ChaseForBook9

Niccolò Croatoan said...

Perhaps I could help you with that, then, Hunter?

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*Looks down, far below*
Ah.
I don't think I should have done that.
*reaches again, but the next step breaks off, lava oozing from it*
For Chrissakes.
*jumps sideways, catching a different path*

Hunter said...

@Niccolo: Sorry, but can I decline that offer? When I heal myself, I regrow my scars, and I like keeping them . . .

Of course. It was merely an offer- not a demand or even a request.

Right. Scars are fun.
*jumps again, reaching the top*
HELL YES-
*the top explodes, throwing her off , and she raises a rock from the ground to catch her as she falls*
*rolls off as the lava begins raining down, landing next to the two boys, raising a large cover of rock above them*
*sticks her face in the grass*

Hunter said...

I would come and rescue you, Adra, but I'm busy.

The lava keeps melting everything that I heal . . .

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*murmurs from the grass*
I don't need rescuing

sherlock pingu, dalek overlord of antarctia said...

* waves hand and freezes a dome for the lava * what next?

Hunter said...

@Adra: Yes, but precautions must be taken for radioactive milkshakes.

*tries to quickly almost-heal everything* Oh, that worked a bit.

*is healing my clothes at the same time, btw*

*no, I can't heal every object*

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Obsidian.

*pushes herself from the grass, retracting the rock cover above them*
*lightly touches the lava with the palm of her hand*

Holy Hera...

Hunter said...

. . . I WAS on fire.

When I'm on fire, I convert all the oxygen in the air and it goes out.

But I was still MELTING. Grr.

#ChaseForBookNine

Hunter said...

*in the air around me

And then I converted the heat energy, after I'd thought to do that, whihc wasn't for a bit, because I'm stupid..

So I actually had quite a lot of energy, because I could keep the heat energy.

Uh, anything in square brackets is written by me, Star, btw.]

*kicks the black Pegasus in its belly and it begins a nice canter, then jumps into the air*

Dynasty Maguire (Brad Wood) said...

Sent you and trip a invite.

I think

@Star/Hunter KK.

Hunter said...

. . . Pegasi don't really make sense. All other flying animals have bodies that are suited for flying. Light bones, streamlined feathers, shapes to slice neaty through the wind.

Pegasi are showing that awesomeness can conquer evolution and be random and nonsensical. I like them.

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*nods* I'll check it out later.

*the Pegasus circles around the air, it's broad wings flapping, strong*
*screams in delight*
If anyone else wants to ride...

Dynasty Maguire (Brad Wood) said...

Everyone had went a bit distant.

I love the word "poofed"

Totes Amazeballs in my opinion!

:)

I didn't know him well I only chatted to him once but he deserves to be in book 9 and 8.

#ChaseForBook9

Dedication Done!

Hunter said...

*neatly

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*raises glass* hear hear

Come on up, Hunter!

Dynasty Maguire (Brad Wood) said...

*has

you know what I'm gonna try doing #ChaseForbook9

I'll probably forget most of the time but i'll try!

#chaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

For me, Em just knows. It's implied for me. Providing thr I talk to her literally every day

Dynasty Maguire (Brad Wood) said...

WBD.

Trip Castalan, Lord of the Hobbits said...

*re-emerges from shadows* Sorry for disappearing, the grey settlers of Catan needed me to put those pesky red barbarians in their place.

I want a ride! I want a ride!

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*nods* well , *swoops down* either this one, or get your own.

Dynasty Maguire (Brad Wood) said...

Trip I've sent you an invite

(I think)

Hunter said...

Excellant ded, Dynasty. :)

Oh, hello again, Trip.

Look! *points to Adra* I haven't attempted to kill her!

Do I get a medal or something? No? Okay, then can I get an imaginary medal? Even if you don't give me an imaginary medal, can I give myself one? Although I'm not too sure of the point in that. I mean, I won't end up with any more imaginary medals if I'm taking it from myself to give to myself. Do you think I should start collecting imaginary medals? If I decided to sell my collection, ow much do you think it would be worth? It wouldn't be worth much to existing people, but do you think it would be worth anything to nonexistant people? Do you think the would trade with me, seeing as how I exist? Do you think maybe I should just collect real live medals? Is there actually any point in collecting medals? Is there actually any point in collectung anything? Do you actually care? Are you actually reading this? I'm not too sure if you're reading this. Hey, if you're not reading this . . . I could just insult you now, and you'd never know even though it'd be right there in front of you. But on the other hadn, you could be reading this, in which case it's a bad idea. If you're reading this, why are you reading this? More to the point, why am I writing this? Why AM I writing this? I don't actually know. Is there any point in me writing it when I don't know why I'm writing this? SHould I stop writing this? Maybe I should stop writing this.

#ChaseFOrBookNine

Dynasty Maguire (Brad Wood) said...

Thanks! :)

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*nods* I'm glad you've stopped writing.

But why would Trip care??

Hunter said...

Because Trip is a caring person? I don't know why he would care, that's why I asked. IT IS A MISTAKE TO THEORISE WITHOUT ALL THE FACTS.

#ChaseForbookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

DON'T JUST ASSUME THINGS, HUNTER. *lands next to trip*

I think he's afk

Hunter said...

@Adra: ISN'T THAT WHAT I JUST SAID???

"It is a mistake to theorise without all the facts" is Sherlock's way of saying "Don't just assume things, Hunter." That's Sherlock Holmes, not Sherlock Pingu. Yes, I watched that as well. Mwahaha.

#ChaseForBookNine

sherlock pingu, dalek overlord of antarctia said...

im like sherlock holmes so either

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

YOU WANNA GO, HUNTER???

Dynasty Maguire (Brad Wood) said...

Come on now ladies...

Hunter said...

I was QUOTING Sherlock Holmes . . . *sighs*

Never mind.

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

That wasn't an insult, I'M A GIRL

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Of course. *sighs* well, Trip's gone again... *the Pegasus jumps up again and flies around*


sherlock pingu, dalek overlord of antarctia said...

i know you were quoting holmes but i use those phrases too

Hunter said...

@Sherlock: Well then, you're awesome.

@Adra: You know, it's kind of boring when I'm not killing you.

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

... I know.

... Wanna give it a go?

Hunter said...

I just CANNOT win with you, can I? First you're moaning because I'm killing you, the next you're moaning because I'm not killing you.

. . . Well, the thing is, I realised that I actually didn't want you to die, so trying to kill you would be kind of pointless, but I'll have a go anyway if you want.

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*shrugs* you tried to kill me when I was already down. That was low.


How about we just spar

Hunter said...

. . . The thing is, when it's a battle of life and death, you take every opportunity you have. I don't care if it's 'low'. I am low. I am the lowest of the low. I may as well be low. If ice cream tries to be warm, it melts, so it may as well try and be cold, yeah?

We can spar if you want. To be honest, I'm pretty indifferent.

#ChaseForBookNine

Hunter said...

People can always change, but if I don't want to change, I do not see the point in trying to change. I like being ice cream.

#ChaseForBookNine

Hunter said...

Msd, btw.

#ChaseForBookNine

sherlock pingu, dalek overlord of antarctia said...

ICE CREAM

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

... *pivks up her fun, shooting thrice at Hunter*

I hate you

sherlock pingu, dalek overlord of antarctia said...

gotta go

#chaseforbook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Bye Sherlock!!!

Hunter said...

See you later, Sherlock! :(

Many do, Adra. *ducks bullets at superspeed*

*fires lasers back*

I have a really good idea of how to end this.

#ChaseForBookNine

sherlock pingu, dalek overlord of antarctia said...

see ya

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Really? Good for you!

*jumps. Dodging the laser, shooting rocks at him* do tell

Hunter said...

If I told you, it would ruin the surprise. *smiles*

*blasts rocks to pieves with lasers* *frowns as the shards sting my ungloved hands (I didn't regrow the gloves after the lava)*

You're getting predictable, Adraaaaa . . .

So am I, actually . . . *frowns*

*teleports just above Adra and falls on her* *electrocutes her*

#ChaseForBookNine

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*grits her teeth, growling at him, and slamming her forehead into his*
*picks up a rock, smelling it into the side of his face again and again*

Maralie Lily Charm said...

I THINK I SAW DEREK IN A BURGER PLACE, OMFGG

/crying

#ChaseForBook9

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

OMG Mara :D

Hunter said...

*teleports helmet on* *wraps hands around Adra's throat and tightens them*

#ChaseForBookNine

Niccolò Croatoan said...

My. I disappear for a mere hour and a half and the two of you are already at each other's throats. Not as though my presence has any impact on whether or not the two of you fight- that was merely an observation. I had thought the two of you determined it was best to avoid killing each other. And I understand the two of you are sparring, but is that not just as dangerous to Adra's health?

#ChaseForBook9

Niccolò Croatoan said...

Hello, Maralie. That is certainly interesting.

#ChaseForBook9

Fabi~ said...

#ChaseForBook9

Maralie Lily Charm said...
