ATTEMPTING TO POST MORE. UHH

So I've been really grossly sick the past couple days, which sucks because finals are coming up, ugh. BUT NOW, i am well! And it is time for the second week of school HOORAY.

In much more exciting news, I AM DOING A NUZLOCKE CHALLENGE. For those who don't know, a Nuzlocke challenge is like... using self inflicted rules to make your game of Pokemon harder. There are only two definite rules you must use (If a Pokemon faints, it is considered dead and you either must release it or put it into the PC Box FOREVER, and you may only catch the first pokemon encountered in an area) I AM PLAYING DIAMOND.

The other rules I'm using:
No healing items period. So no using potions, antidotes, etc, in or out of battle.
All healing items will be sold to avoid temptation.
All pokemon will be nicknamed after Harry Potter characters.
Every trainer must be fought at least once.

I am playing as Lucas (only player character I've never used, lol) and I named him Pix. His rival is Dev! I LOVE NAMING CHARACTERS OKAY.

So freaking excited for BW.

Uhh I'm also writing some fic because I was bullied into it, THANKS GUYS. Also i need to work on my pokemon fic because people are guilting me about it. Why are fanfic readers so pushy? 

AND AND uhhh I'm FINALLY reading Artemis Fowl. This is all i knew about the series: There is a kid named Artemis and a girl named Holly. YEAH. REALLY. I'm barely into to it (NO SPOILERS, I WILL CUT YOU) but I swear Artemis is a mafia boss. Like, before we even know anything about his family I was like THIS KID ACTS LIKE HE'S IN THE MAFIA. SEARCH YOUR FEELINGS, YOU KNOW IT TO BE TRUE. Holly's awesome as well. I HAD NO IDEA SHE WAS A FAIRY AND I WAS LIKE "WHAAATT??"
So that's, y'know, coming along.

Guh, I'm so boring.


Questions of the day!
WHAT ARE YOU READING? Have you read Artemis Fowl? NO SPOILERS. If so, ARTEMIS IS A MAFIA BOSS Y/Y.

Have you ever done a Nuzlocke challenge? Are you ~*excited*~ for Black and White, or are you

YAAAAHHH

EXCITED!?!?!?!?!?

(so the second one for me)

I tried reading the beginning of an Artemis Fowl and couldn't do it. Then, I listened to another book by the same author and couldn't do it even though it was being read by Jack Davenport.

The last book I finished was The Search for WondLa. It was AWESOME!

Also, I want a Hugo Cabret trailer...NOW.

The Search for WondLa? It was a couple of weeks ago, I've been busy with work.

Have you read Hugo Cabret?

Oh, it's awesome. Technically, it's The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick.It's about this boy who lives by himself in a Paris train station until he's drawn into the life of this old man who runs a booth selling toys there. It's "historical fiction" so it delves into cinema history especially Georges Méliès and the early attempts at robots. I didn't know this before reading it. The unique quality that made me want to read it so much is that it's 533 pages and has 284 drawings/photos. Some of which are full page so it's like a hybrid novel/graphic novel.

You can see the beginning of the book here:

I'm also excited that they're doing a movie. Normally, this would bring a foreboding, worried feeling that they would inevitably screw it up. However, it's being directed by Martin freaking Scorsese and Hugo will be played by Asa Butterfield aka Mordred. The rest of the cast includes Ben Kingsley, Chloë Moretz, Jude Law, Ray Winstone, Christopher Lee, Helen McCrory, Frances de la Tour, Richard Griffiths and Angus Barnett.
