Oooh FUN!



My editor has read the first (rough) draft of Book 9, and he loves it. I'm on the home stretch now — the end is in sight (in more ways than one). Over the next two or three weeks my head is going to be down and I'm going to working hard to fill in those gaps, to link up those scenes, to write those missing chapters. Right now I'm at 100,000 words. The end result will PROBABLY be about 120,000 words — maybe just slightly shorter than KOTW. Of course, in order to finish the book, I'll need to pick a winner of the Who Gets to Die competition we ran ages ago, and then that lucky reader will get to meet their grisly end...

And because I, and therefore WE, are on the home stretch, this blog is going to be choc-a-block with announcements and reveals over the next few weeks. By the end of THIS week, for example, we'll be revealing the cover for the Armageddon-Outta-Here short story collection. Next week, we'll reveal the full, WRAPAROUND cover for the collection (it's awesome). And the week after that? We'll be revealing the title for the ninth, and last, Skulduggery Pleasant book.

Oh! I can't wait!

Amethyst Temerity said...

I WANT TO SEE THE NEW COVER!!! I WANT TO KNOW THE TITLE! So much anticipation...

Snoogy said...

New books - Yay!
Last books - NONONONONO

Amethyst Temerity said...

Hello Snoogy!

Star Inkbright said...

ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! D:

NO, DEREK!
STOP BRINGING THE END NEARER TO US!

*hides under a table somewhere*
*notices it has a chartreuse tablecloth* *shrieks and goes to hide under a rock instead*

Snoogy said...

Hi :) It's been ages since I was this near to the top of the comments (well done on being first :D)

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

HI

STOP IT DEREK I HATE YOU

Amethyst Temerity said...

...everyone is now shouting at Derek...

Silente Tempest said...

NO DEREK! STOP WITH THE TEASING AND THE SUSPENSE

*joins star under the rock *

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

DEREK COME ON

(Even though I know it's not going to happen, we can hope, right?)

Emerald Melody said...

Hey Derek,

if you see this, can I ask if Chase has been put into book 9?

Its just his daughter was asking me today and I wasn't sure how to answer her.

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

WOW.

*squiggles helplessly*

#ChaseForBook9

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Hi, Em!

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright said...

@Silente: Yay! :)
Welcome to my rock. :)

@Amethyst: WHY WOULD WE NOT. D:

I've never been first on a post before, haha.
. . .
I've been commenting regulary for over two years.
I come on nearly every day.
I've came on nearly every day for two years.
I . . .
Grr. :P
*shakes head*

#ChaseForBookNine

Ieni Lorarté-Strider said...

Oh no

Star Inkbright said...

IENIIIIIIIIIIII. :)

#ChaseForBookNine

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

*seconds Em's asking* ^^

*pokes Derek*

#ChaseForBook9

Amethyst Temerity said...

Hello Star, Silente, Snoogy, Kestrel, Taia, Emerald, and anyone else!
How are you all doing?

Silente Tempest said...

I'm torn! I want another sp book to read but I don't want to finish the sp series! I want to know the title and see the cover but I don't want the end to draw closer! The suspense and the fear and the dread are killing me!

Emerald Melody said...

hi everyone.

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Star, that makes me feel better about never having gotten it either :)


IENI! *tacklehugs* I don't think I've seen you since I came back!:)

Silente Tempest said...

I'm fine thanks amethyst

@star this is a nice rock. Very cosy :-)

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Silente, I think that's what all of are feeling :)

*thirds Em's asking*

Silente Tempest said...

Hey Emerald. Hey Ieni. Hey star. Hey Taia. Hey Amethyst. Hey Snoogy. Hey Kestrel. Hey anyone I accidently missed. How are y'all_

Amethyst Temerity said...

I'm fine...except I'm worried about the last Skulduggery ending...

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Silente and Amethyst, I'm good, thanks. You?

Silente Tempest said...

*fourths ems asking*

I hate the feeling. Its horrible. And you just know Derek doing an evil laugh back at his house.
*shakes fist at Derek*

Silente Tempest said...

I'm torn but other than that fine thanks Kes!

Ieni Lorarté-Strider said...

Hey Kes, nice to see you again!!:):) I hope you are well! *ninjaeroplanetacklehugs*

Hey Starry-Eyed!! Did you get my last email or have I not replied to one?

Not staying long, sorry!:/

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Silente(do you mind being called Storm? As a nickname for Tempest?), when I saw the Who's Gonna Die competition, I thought he meant for characters and who he was going to kill off, and I'm just like O.O

Star Inkbright said...

@Silente: I think it's Eve's cousin. :)

I don't want to read Book Nine if it means the series ending.
The desire for it not to end overrules the desire to read another SP book.
That said, I'll read it anyway, and I'll love it, right left diagonal up until the ending - at which point, it'll end. D:
I hate this.

@Kes: Really? Oh, good. :)
Well, not good for you, but . . .:P

#ChaseForBookNine

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

Hey! I want a rock, too! :P

I said if I was smart that I would
Save up for a piece of sting
And a rock to wind the string around
because
Everybody wants a rock to
Wiiiiind a piece of string around...


@Star&Kes: Neither have I, and I'm up to three years, now.
BUT I repeat my point about how the number of posts in the future hopefully greatly outnumber those that you've been around for in the past. Which is to say that if you hang around, then by a fractional kind of a standpoint, the probability of getting first kind of becomes more? Kind of?

#ChaseForbook9

Amethyst Temerity said...

Hello Ieni!

Silente Tempest said...

*shrugs* sure you can call me Storm. I like it. Its creative. *nods* when I saw the competition I immediately signed myself up. Then signed my friend up.

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Star, yeah. Although part of it probably has to do with how I was gone for 8 months...

And of course it's Eve's cousin! Obviously... XD

Taia, 3 years? Wow. And, logically, that'd work, except for the fact that I used to come on way more often, so my chances are actually /de/creasing.

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

Also

Hey Amethyst! :)

IENI IENI IENI HI.

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright said...

@Taia: They are awesome lyrics, though. :)

@Ieni: I got it! I haven't replied, because I only remember when I check my emails, and when I am, I'm usually procrastinating, so I don't really have time to answer it because I should be doing homework, so all I have to do now is remember to remember . . . :P

#ChaseForBookNine

Star Inkbright said...

@Taia: Yeah. :) :)
*waits happily for the years of the future to bring more posts to me*

#ChaseForBookNine

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Storm, I signed up too, but I used my taken name and my OC's info and then I found out that you were supposed to use your given name and stuffs, and I was just :3

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

... I didn't even know there WAS a Who's Gonna Die? competition. o0 ^^

@Kes: *nods* Maybe.
Good luck, anyway. I hope you get there someday. :) ^^

#ChaseForBook9

Silente Tempest said...

If I remember rightly I did it twice. Once with my given name and once with my taken name...not sure why..

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Speaking of years of the future, the blog's not going to die after Skulduggery ends, right? Because that would be bad.

Star Inkbright said...

I didn't do it. *whistles innocently*

(Because I'd rather one of you got in than me got in, yeah?
Which is less to do with actual being-nice-ness than wanting-to-feel-like-I'm-being-nice-ness, really.)

#ChaseForBookNine

Silente Tempest said...

It shouldn't do I mean..the blog is for Derek not Skulduggery so in theory it should continue after Skulduggery...you know...ends.

Star Inkbright said...

@Kes: IT IS NOT. *glares at anyone who dares oppose me*

The only thing that will really kill the blog would be the making of a successful SP movie.

. . .

#ChaseForBookNine

Amethyst Temerity said...

The blog won't die... because Derek can post other stuff too, not related to Skulduggery.

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Star, we all appreciate your sacrifice. :) *bows*

Although I don't understand why you weren't in LSoDM, since he basically put every single other regular in.

Valkyrie V. Cain - Ivy the Fangirl said...

Derek, I'm going to die because of this freaking series

Amethyst Temerity said...

Hello Valkyrie/Ivy.

Star Inkbright said...

I would have definitely done it with my taken name, though.
I generally do everything with my taken name, unless I have to do it with my given name. :P

#ChaseForBookNine

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

And Star, why would a movie kill it?

Duck said...

MY HEAD CAN"T WORK WITH THIS MUCH AWESOME COMING!!!!!!!!!!

Amethyst Temerity said...

Hello Duck.

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

HI VAL *tacklehugs*


Hi Duck!


So many people!

Silente Tempest said...

HELLO DUCK AND VALKYRIE! HOW ARE YOU?

Star Inkbright said...

@Kes: I didn't ask to be. XD The others did.

. . .
Yeah. :P

Plus at the time it felt a bit pester-y.
I will live without my name in a book. *nods sacrificially*

Thanks. :)

Hey Ivy! :)
I'm a bubble, so I'm not really alive, so I can't really die, but I would metaphorically die if I wasn't already broken. :)

#ChaseForBookNine

Mistical Future said...

Sounds AMAZING!!!
YAY AWESOME AND EXITING ANNOUNCEMENTS!!!!!!!!!!!! XD

Amethyst Temerity said...

Hello Mistical.

Star Inkbright said...

@Kes: Because loads of movie people would come here and invade. :(
I wouldn't like that.
Blogland is special.

#ChaseForBookNine

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

@Star: Thanks. *agrees* :)
And- :):)

@Kes: Derek's still an existing guy when he's not writing SP, right? He'll be a guy writing other things. Who has and/or keeps many things. Including a blog. This blog. *nods*

Hi Val/Ivy! :):)

#ChaseForBook9

Amethyst Temerity said...

There's so many people I don't know coming on! :)

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Star, ah. Understandable.
-ish.

Silente Tempest said...

I'm probably going to cry at the end. Even if its not sad (which, knowing Derek, it will be) I'll cry. And shout. And scream. And then get shouted at by my family. Then I'll rant for days on end.

Star Inkbright said...

@Amethyst: I KNOW THEM ALL MWAHAHAHAHAHA don't worry they're nice
ish
*frowns*
Well, slightly nice.
If you stretch your imagination.

#ChaseForBookNine

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Taia, indeed. And I'm sure he'll keep posting. By the blog dying I meant the Blogland part of it, which had better not, because, as you said, Derek still exists.

Amethyst, they're all awesome :)

Amethyst Temerity said...

...how much of my imagination do I have to stretch???

Duck said...

I'm good, quite great.
I'll be leaving for school soon so MSD

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Star, I don't think any stretch of the imagination can make Val qualify as "nice." :P

Star Inkbright said...

I probably won't cry. It doesn't seem like the kind of thing I'd cry at.

I'll sit there
staring at the ceiling
feeling numb
and broken
and then I will distract myself
and then I will remember and I will moan at you all and you'll be sick of me
oh wait you're already sick of me. :)

#ChaseForBookNine

Silente Tempest said...

@star ISH? That's comforting. Well either way.. HELLO ANYBODY I MAY NOT HAVE MET BEFORE! I COME IN PEACE. UNLESS YOU ATTACK ME. THEN I MIGHT NOT BE SO PEACEFUL!

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Star, yeah, that'll be me. And we could never be sick of you :)

Wait, Duck, are you an Aussie?

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

Hey Duck! Hi Mistical! :) :)

It always feels weird being this close to the end of SP, because in my mind, I'm nowhere NEAr the end. I still have KOTW and LSODM to gain and consume, first, y'know?
It's like knowing an apocalypse is coming, but not being alive yet, so the end of the world & of life means nothing, because you don't yet know the world and life, y'know? It's odd.

#ChaseForBook9

Silente Tempest said...

We're not sick of you Star! I enjoy your crazy rambling. Its one of the highlights of my day.

Star Inkbright said...

@Amethyst: *looks at her solemnly* A great deal of it.
It would be recommended that you update your imagination with a rubber extension for the task. It wouldn't do for it to break, would it?

@Kes: No, but 'veryslightlynice'?
At a big stretch?

#ChaseForBookNine

Duck said...

Why, yes. I do live in Australia!

Mistical Future said...

Sorry everyone I can't stay on I have to go to school!

Have a good day/night!

Amethyst Temerity said...

Bye Mistical!

Valkyrie V. Cain - Ivy the Fangirl said...

Hello, friends who I haven't spoken to in months.

Silente Tempest said...

Bye Mistical! Good morning Duck!

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Taia, you haven't read KotW and LSoDM yet? I am sorry for your loss.

Star, maybe. I think "a bit" needs to be added, so it's "veryslightlyniceabit", and then it is, just barely, conceivable. -ish.

Duck said...

I have to go now as well.

BYE EVERYONE!!!

Star Inkbright said...

@Silente: REALLY???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? :) :) :)

*writes '*screams*' in Slipknot font, because it looks like a wide demented smiley face*
*by that, I mean I'm smiling muchly :) :) *
Thanks, Silente. :)

Thanks, Kes. :) :) :)

You shouldn't encourage me, though, guys. XD

@Taia: *nods* :/ I know what you mean.

#ChaseForBookNine

Amethyst Temerity said...

Hello Valkyrie/Ivy! I haven't met you yet! I'm Amethyst!

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

@Kes: Ah. Well, then, we'll all still exist, won't we? Unless the end of Book 9 is really too much, of course. :P

@Star: *quietly refuses to ever be sick of you*
*EVER*

#ChaseForBook9

Amethyst Temerity said...

Bye Duck!

Star Inkbright said...

Fours, Misti, Duck! :(

@Kes: *nods* :)

#ChaseForBookNine

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Bye, Miss Tickle!

Val, I think in my case it's been over a year. Which I'm going to blame you for even though it's mostly my fault.

Star Inkbright said...

*smiles at Taia as well* :)
Thanks!

#ChaseForBookNine

Valkyrie V. Cain - Ivy the Fangirl said...

Hi Amethyst! I used to be here all the time. It kind of strange to see so many new people here..,

Silente Tempest said...

Bye duck!

Yes star. Your ramblings lighten my mood. And I'll never be sick of you! OF ANY OF YOU! Your my super crazy mega awesome second family :-)
*hugs all*
*which is really rare*
*Cuz I don't do hugs*
*like ever*

Valkyrie V. Cain - Ivy the Fangirl said...

Well, either way, Kestrel, its good to see you here.

(Is the my fault thing a joke, or did I do something that I'm unaware of, or...?

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

*hugs Storm back*

Val, there are so many of them. And they're weird.

@At all the people I'm talking about- yes, I'm joking.

Val, no I'm not...

Amethyst Temerity said...

By the way, should I call you Valkyrie or Ivy or Valkyrie/Ivy or what?

Valkyrie V. Cain - Ivy the Fangirl said...

I usually go by Val, but anything works.

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

Bye Duck! *waves* Have a good day!
Bye Mistical! *waveS* Also have a good day!


@Kessie: It's not a loss. It's just not yet a gain, either. :) (... I think.)

*throws a smile in Val's direction* :)

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright said...

@Ivy: Joke. :)

@Silente: *points to profile picture*
Imagine that's a massive smiley face. :)
Thanks. :) :) :)

@Ivy: Yeah . . . XD
We've been through whole generations since you leftish. XD

#ChaseForBookNine

Amethyst Temerity said...

Okay :) I'll call you Val.

Silente Tempest said...

*looks slightly offended at kes's comment*
*remembers she likes being weird*
*stops being offended*
*tries to remember if she's met val before*

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Val, yeah, a joke.

Taia, I was more sharing condolences in advance for what you'll feel when you /do/ read them.

Gtg, brb

Valkyrie V. Cain - Ivy the Fangirl said...

I feel like I've missed so much.

Silente Tempest said...

That's a cool smily face

Star Inkbright said...

@Kes: Ah, your profile picture! XD

@Ivy: Well, yes, you have, but you also missed some bad stuff so it's all cool. :)

#ChaseForBookNine

Star Inkbright said...

@Silente: I KNOW RIGHT LEFT DIAGONAL

#ChaseFOrBookNien

Star Inkbright said...

WHEN PEOPLE CALL ME WEIRD IT ACTUALLY FEELS LIKE A COMPLIMENT NOW EVEN IF THEY MEAN IT IN A BAD WAY
I JUST FEEL PLEASED TO BE CLASSIFIED AS IT. :P

#ChaseForBookNine

Valkyrie V. Cain - Ivy the Fangirl said...

I'm pretty sure the main reason I didn't go on much was all the role playing, but last time I really remember being here was last summer when Adra was at my house.

Silente Tempest said...

Val, have we met before? I can't remember which is probably really bad but is at the same time the truth...

Valkyrie V. Cain - Ivy the Fangirl said...

Being weird is awesome so never take it in a bad way ever.

That's, like, a life rule.

Star Inkbright said...

@Ivy: Yeah.
We've gone back to blogfighting, recently . . . O_O
Although I've come to ADORE the roleplaying. It's just . . . stories. :)

#ChaseForBookNine

Star Inkbright said...

*nods at Ivy firmly*
Yeah.

#ChaseForBookNine

Valkyrie V. Cain - Ivy the Fangirl said...

Silente, unless you used to have a different name on here, I don't think we've ever met. In either case, hello!

Amethyst Temerity said...

I have to go now, but I'll be back in about thirty minutes!
See you guys later!
*waves to everyone*

Silente Tempest said...

The blog fighting hasn't been happening QUITE as much... its been cutting down from when I first joined...

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

@Silente: *hugs back* You rock. *nods* :)

@Star: WOW.
I want a smile like THAT.
Screams as smiles... That's such a crazy thing. idk. Awesome.

@Kes: Oh. Sorry.
Correction retracted, then.
And I am now frightened.
Thank you for the sympathy.
:P

*agrees, on the note of weird=awesome*

#ChaseForBook9

Valkyrie V. Cain - Ivy the Fangirl said...

Bye Amethyst!

Star Inkbright said...

Silente arrived on the same day as Annika, back in September . . .

I like September.
It's when my birthday is.
Does anyone know when Hunter's birthday is?
Because I don't.
It irritates me. :P
(Then again, he doesn't really care about birthdays. It's not like he ever remembers how old he is. :P)

#ChaseForBookNine

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Back!

Star, we've gone back to blogfighting? Really? How have I not noticed this? I /love/ blogfighting!

Star Inkbright said...

Fours, Taia! :(

@Silente: Yeah, but when you don't see it for a year and then it's suddenly here . . . XD
Blogfighting was The Thing when I was new. Nice to see it again. :)

(Crap I feel so old)

@Taia: I didn't think of it like that. O_O
(That's what I'm gonna be drawing in lessons tomorrow, haha. XD Screaming as smiling.)

#ChaseForBookNine

Silente Tempest said...

Bye amethyst!

In which case val..
*clears throat*
Why hello new person. Nice to meet you. I am Silente Tempest also known as Sil, Si, Miss Tempest and most recently Storm. I feel I should ask first off all are you like the Valkyrie in the book by which I mean hate vampires?

Valkyrie V. Cain - Ivy the Fangirl said...

(Speaking of birthdays, I don't know how many of you remember Amanda but hers was yesterday)

Star Inkbright said...

@Kes: *laughs* XD

Yeah. Mostly, uh . . . Chi and Silente and Blake?

#ChaseForBookNine

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

See you, Amethyst! *waves*

@Star: Maybe Hunter's birthday is every day.
And that's why he doesn't care.
Because if every day was your birthday, you'd probably lose interest quite quickly. :P

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright said...

@Ivy: I remember her!
And ooh. O_O

#ChaseForBookNine

Silente Tempest said...

Yey Taia said I rock!
*does a happy dance*

@kes yeah blog land exploded into blog fighting about when me and chio clashed...

Star Inkbright said...

@Taia: *laughs* :) :) :)
Thank you. :)
I love that explanation. :) :)

#ChaseForBookNine

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Val, happy birthday Amanda!
Mine's coming up soon as well. Well, by soon, I mena in approximately a month, but whatever.

Star, excellent. *rubs hands together*

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Taia, that is a pretty great explanation :)
It would also explain why he doesn't know how old he is.

Star Inkbright said...

(In reality, though, he had to be born at SOME time. :P)

#ChaseForBookNine

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Star, why?

Star Inkbright said...

Why did he have to be born at some time?

BECAUSE HOW ELSE DOES HE EXIST?

(I mean, he could have been grown in a test tube or summat, but he wasn't.)

#ChaseForBookNine

Star Inkbright said...

Things are so much easier when you're a bubble and reproduce asexually. *sighs*

#ChaseForBookNine

Valkyrie V. Cain - Ivy the Fangirl said...

Hi Silente. Not gonna lie, I'm not exactly the biggest fan of vampires, but I could make an exception if you're one (which seemed to be what you were suggesting).

Star Inkbright said...

(Silente is a vampire, yeah, and so is Kes these day. :O)

#ChaseForBookNine

Silente Tempest said...

@star well if you think of dimentions and how there would be an infinite amount of dimentions this means there is and infinite amount of possibilities meaning that technically you would be constantly given birth to in one dimention or another. Following that logic technically you could claim that everyday is your birthday as in one dimention at least it is :-)

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Star, stop using logic. It's offputting.

Star, I would like to point out that it was not my decision to become a vampire. It was Mist's fault.

Star Inkbright said...

*days

*facepalm*
I was getting my maths wrong today because my brain was transposing words - or, in this case, numbers.
Ugh.
This is a hindrance. :P

#ChaseForBookNine

Silente Tempest said...

Yes I am a vamp val. Although I'm usually under control...usually....

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

@Val: I do! And- Awesome! Happy post-birthday to her! C:

@Silente: C:

@Star: :) :)

@Kess: Thank you. And, true! Hoorah!

Star, maybe he was born in, like, a time warp of sorts, so he really was born on every day? :P

#ChaseForBook9

Star Inkbright said...

@Silente: *nods*
You couldn't prove it, though, not knowing how the layers of reality have warped you.
And fairy nuff, but in my story, which is only ONE dimension (well, multiple ones that repeatedly overlap and confuzzle me, but), he needs to have ONE birthday. :P
I'm fine him not having one, though. :P

"Star, stop using logic. It's offputting."
That should go on Snow's quote blog. XD

#ChaseForBookNine

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Star, that's better than what I do, which is multiply addition problems instead of adding them. :3

I like Storm's explanation :)

Star Inkbright said...

@Taia: Maybe he was
but he can't, strangely enough, remember being born, so he wouldn't know about it, and his birth certificate must have said SOMETHING when he had one. :P

#ChaseForBookNine

Star Inkbright said...

@Kes: :P
Storm's explanation is good. :)

All these explanations are good. Natural arguing urges making me disagree, sorry. :P

#ChaseForBookNine

Silente Tempest said...

Yey. Technically you could also apply that to any situation too...christmas, Easter, new years, Halloween, other important days...

*wonders where the smartness came from*

Star Inkbright said...

Msd.

#ChaseForBookNine

S.E. Berrow said...

So exciting! And mildly terrifying!! x

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Star, why, thank you. I've never been recommended for inclusion on a quote blog before :)

BIRTH CERTIFICATES ARE FOR THE WEAK!

Star Inkbright said...

@Silente: I don't know where the smartness came from, either. *frowns*
It looks a bit out of place on you.
(Joking. XD)

#ChaseForBookNine

Star Inkbright said...

@Kes: WELL THAT'S WHY HE DOESN'T HAVE ONE NOW!
(Plus he is weak, I'm sorry. XD)

#ChaseForBookNine

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Hello, S.E. Barrow! I'm Kestrel LeStarre, nice to meet you. *shakes hand* :)

Silente Tempest said...

(Your right anyway...only school me tends to be smart..)
*stops wondering where smart thoughts came from*
Hello S.E.Berrow!

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Star, so for all you know, he could have been born every day!

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

@Silente: Wow. That theory is both amazing and terrifying. O.o

@Star: Transposing numbers in maths is THE WORST. My friend always turns around and points out that my answers are wrongggg and I go back through them pointing out that I didn't make a mathematical error, I just forgot the 1 from a 15, wrote a fractional index upside-down, and mis-copied the original question with an addition that should've been a subtraction. :P

#ChaseForBook9

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

I has to gooo, bye!

Possible bbs

Silente Tempest said...

Why thank you Taia!

I hate when you copy down questions wrong. Cause then you solve them, check the answers and get all confused about where you went wrong.

Star Inkbright said...

@Taia: D: D:
Yeah.

@Kes: He's inside my head. Unless he's lying to me, he wasn't born every day. And even if he was, then he'd think that was quite cool but would insist that he still had to have a birthday because of cake.
I'm not sure he even likes cake. :P

@Star: THEN HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE WOULD SAY HE WAS BORN ON EVERYDAY, OFC. :P

And @Star: Y'know, I thought the very same thing about the quote blog, there. xD

I hate it when my maths teacher WALKS IN FRONT OF THE BOARD SO I CAN'T SEE WHAT I'M MEANT TO BE DOING AND I'M JUST SITTING THERE TRYING NOT TO SCREAM WITH FRUSTRATION


#ChaseForBookNine

Silente Tempest said...

Why wouldn't he like cake? Cake is amazing and stuff and...

*looks at the time*

Oh. I was meant to have gone by now..

SORRY GUYS GTG NOW C Y'ALL TOMOROW I HOPE! :P

Star Inkbright said...

@Taia: NORMAL BIRTH CERTIFICATES DO NOT SAY THAT
and he was FAIRLY normal when he was a baby, you know. :P

I added it to the quote blog, btw . . . :P

#ChaseForBookNine

Star Inkbright said...

@Silente: Why would you LIKE it?

Fours, Silente! :(

Emerald Melody said...

I'm thinking of doing a Dublin Daes family tree.

The fucking effort of it!
I hate my brain.

Star Inkbright said...

yeah I should go now

Fours. :(

#ChaseForBookNine

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

@Tempest: Yes. *agrees* That happens far too often for me, too. :P


@Star: But how could he be lying to you if he doesn't remember being born, so he doesn't know when he was born? For all HE knows, he could've been born every day. :P

...He could have ACCESS to cake every day, as he chooses?

Aw, bye Kestrel! See oyu soon, hopefully! *waves*

Silente Tempest said...

*pops back on for one comment*
YOU WOULD LIKE CAKE BECAUSE AKE HAS SUGAR IN IT. IT ALSO HAS ICING WHICH IS REALLY TASTY. YOU CAN GET A VARIETY OF CAKES (MMM CHOCOLATE) AND THEY COME IN DIFFRENT SHAPES AND SIZES AMD SUIT EVERY OCCASION AND ARE GENERALLY AMAZING AND IM ACTUALLY GOING TO LEAVE NOW BYE!

Star Inkbright said...

Before I go -
He has access to cake every day anyway.
I'm sure he can portal to a place with cake.
Multiple places with cake.
There are a lot of portals in the world.
Or will be.
*scowls at tenses*
But if he doesn't KNOW he was born every day, then all I need to know is what day he THINKS his birthday is. :)
What day he was ACTUALLY born is irrelevant. :P

#ChaseForBookNine

Star Inkbright said...

@Silente: CHOCOLATE IS A DRUG!

(They can still eat chocolate. But it's not the same. :/)
(Because the more mild the drug is, the lesser the effect, yeah?)

And - SUGAR ALSO HAS SUGAR IN IT.
WHY WOULD YOU NOT JUST EAT SUGAR?

#ChaseForBookNine

Star Inkbright said...

*really going now*

(Although, Hunter does like baking cakes, if anyone's interested. :P)

#ChaseForBookNine

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

@Star: I sympathise. :(

@Star: YES BUT MOST PEOPLE AREn'T BORN EVERY DAY.
IF YOU WERE BORN ON EVERY DAY, THEN THAT'S WHAT YER BIRTH CERTIFICATE WOULD SAY. :P
And, since when does Hunter need 'normal', anyway? :P

@Em: If it helps with the writing/figuring/whatnot... idk. It sounds like maybe that could be useful.
If you don't want to, then I'd suggest don't, because why would you if it's just a burden?
BUT if you think it'd be handy to have, for whatever reason, or if you just feel like doing it, then do? :)
(And- your brain is great. Naturally. :])

#ChaseForBook9

Taia DeMars, Proud Princess of Flowers, Inesculent Bean and Dinosaur Enthusiast said...

Ah!
I've also gotta go.

*hugs Em, and anybody else who might still be around(?)*

Bye!

Amethyst Temerity said...

Hello! Is anyone on anymore?

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Yes!

Although I doubt you still are :)

Amethyst Temerity said...

I still am! Hello Kestrel!

Moss L. Cryptic / Fabi V. Snakespeare said...

I CANT WAIT

ONLY I CAN

I JUST DONT WANT TO

BUT I DONT WANT IT TO BE OVER EITHER

AND BASICALLY WHAT EVERYONE ELSE HAS BEEN SAYING, ONLY COOLER BECAUSE I HAVE SUNGLASSES.

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Hi! *waves*
How do you feel about going swimming? *grins not-quite-evilly*

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

HI FABI! *waves*

But I have a fedora!

Amethyst Temerity said...

...swimming? why swimming?

Hello Moss/Fabi.

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

...No reason...

*pushes into lake*

Amethyst Temerity said...

...
*brings a wave of water crashing down on Kestrel*

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

*claps hands together above head to form an energy shield right before water hits*

Are you an elemental?

Amethyst Temerity said...

Yup!

*makes water surround Kestrel and sweep her into the lake*

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

*collapses shield and swims away from Amethyst*

*dives under and pulls Amethyst down*

Moss Cryptic / Fabi Snakespeare said...

Well, I have a top hat.

And I'm not here, sorry.

I probably could be, but I really don't want to risk more conflict by staying...

[Leaves cookies]

[Waves]

[Disappears]

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Bye, Fabi :( *hugs*

*looks mournfully at cookies but is currently underwater*

Amethyst Temerity said...

*uses water to propel herself beck on land and away from Kestrel*

Amethyst Temerity said...

Bye Moss/Fabi!

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

*swears*

*swims out*

*taps symbol on knee and is dried*

Can we either truce for cookies or pause a bit for me to get my swords?

Amethyst Temerity said...

COOKIES! yes!

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Okay...

*steals all the cookies and runs into the forest, grabbing my swords as I go*

Amethyst Temerity said...

Hey! Wait up!
*runs into forest, following Kestrel*

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

*eats all the cookies but one*

Fine. *hands Amethyst the one cookie*

(You can call me Kes or Kessie if you want)

Amethyst Temerity said...

(Okay!)

*takes cookie*
*nibbles on it*

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

I would eat that faster if I were you. I'm liable to steal it.

Can I call you Amy, or do you have another nickname that you prefer?


Amethyst Temerity said...

You can call me whatever you want! I don't really have a nickname...

MINE! *hurriedly finishes eating cookie*

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

Thank you, Gladys :)

Non-sequitur: Do you listen to Welcome to Night Vale?

Amethyst Temerity said...

Yes! But I started recently so I'm only on episode 21...

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

You are a wonderful person.

25 will change your life.

Amethyst Temerity said...

Really? How so?

Kestrel LeStarre/ Delila Arratay said...

It is beautiful.

Unless you don't ship Cecilos. In which case, I will find you, and I will skiiiin you.

Amethyst Temerity said...

I do! Don't skin me!
