This is my birthday cake.  Yes, it’s cake!!  I made it for my girlfriend and my birthdays (our birthdays are a day apart!). 

Black skirt and bodice has a brain motif, the red skirt has a bone/spine motif, and the corset has a rib cage and spine theme.  Her gloves are actually icing as well, and the roses are fondant. 

We lit candles and sang Happy Birthday but I couldn’t bear to cut it and so we left it as it was (we had other cakes to serve the guests too!).  I’m not sure how long it will keep for but I want to keep it for as long as possible.

During a very important varden meeting everyone agreed to lock out Bravys and nothing was really done because they all sat and listened to him banging at the door for five hours. They may not agree on shipping rights, the looming food crisis, how to handle dissidents, or even on freedom of speech... but they can all agree on one thing. Fuck Bravys.

:3c

Just saw your post and wanted to know when you started reading Eragon and what you thought of the movie. Also, how long have you run this blog thingy? Also also, how do you come up with your daily posts? I look forward to seeing your stuff because it's usually really funny and relatable. Thanks!

I started reading eragon when I was I. Elementary school (probably like 4th grade).

I thought the movie was terrible compared to the books. It sucks because:
1. Arya is human in the movie
2. Their sole purpose is traveling to the varden in the movie even though in the books Brom doesn’t want eragon to go to the Varden.
3. Saphira becomes an adult in like an instant when she flies away and magically becomes like 100 times bigger. In the book she actually grew over the course of months
4. There are no elves or dwarves in the movie at all
5. Arya is kind of a baby in the movie. She is supposed to be this badass character but they make her just seem like a love interest.
6. Angela. That is all I am going to say. Angela had a terribly represented character. The movie portrayed her very badly.
7. There are probably tons of reasons why the movie sucks more but I can’t list them all

I would probably say that my blog is 99% reblogs and 1% drawings that I do. So I don’t really come up with my posts I just reblog a lot of stuff. My drawings however are usually inspired by fandoms or stuff people ask me to draw.

//I’ve been thinking, and I made another OC, an Eragon OC. He’s a dragon, and the main line of his backstory is, he is the dragon of an elf, and he was loyal and faithful to her for around 20-30 years, then she goes into Galbatorix’s service, going against the eleven race and the Varden, however, her dragon is horrified that something like this could happen to his beloved rider and refuses to go with her. He stays allied with the elves and Varden, while his rider becomes a Shade. Although the elf can summon a black dragon (a dragon conjured into existence that is pure dark magic), since she is alive, so is her dragon, and they are still tied together. However, her dragon has yet to be defeated. And the dragon has learned to control himself whenever the elf tries to use the spell, skulblakas ven, so she hasn’t learned much about the Varden or the elves’ location (once you become a Shade, your memory becomes completely wiped up to when you become a Shade). Soooo, I guess, like this if you want to see a few of my sketches of him. HAIL HYDRANOID!!! Why? Because Marvel and Bakugan at the same time.

So in summary, Eragon the movie ignores the plot of the book, ignores any characterization or character development the book did and removes all of the awesome cultures in favour of flat female characters, ignoring how awesome dragons are, a tacky score, turning angela into a fetishized mystic who refers to herself in the thrid person and for some reason put Galbatorix in as a bald big baddie.

It also removed anything interesting about eragon, brom, saphira, murtagh, ajihad, arya, nasuada, dwarves, urgals, werecats, magic, elves and everything else in Alagaesia. and for some reason the Varden were covered in bling and gold? despite the fact that they have basically no money? Are they trying to out-fashion the Empire?

Very poorly done. 0/10. My eleven year old self was completely right to be filled with righteous anger at that movie. It is a amalgamation of every shitty fantasy trope and poor casting choices. My friend Shannon is wrong that the guy is it not hot. He is ok at best. Screw you Shannon.

Everything that made the books awesome is desperately lacking from the movie. An amazingly bad fuck up one everyone involved’s part. It does not deserve anything other than to be destroyed by the maggoty mummy-ninjas it calls ra’zac. Actually they wouldn’t be abel to destroy it it since they are so useless. It should be destroyed by book Saphira melting all existing copies of it into a pool of plastic and then should be recycled into dildos so someone can actually enjoy it.

The book was written by a sixteen year old kid but it is the movie that feels childish.

Comparison of Main Character

The main character of my book, Brisingr, by Christopher Paolini, is named Eragon. Eragon is a sixteen year old boy who lives in a medival world ruled by a powerful, magical, dictator who finds a dragon egg in the forest. He is trained by the secret rebel group called, “The Varden,” who are leaning on him to defeat their evil ruler. He is also trained by the elves and had a great piece of magic worked on him to heal a scar on his back, turning him into a sort of half-elf half-human with pointed ears, a hairless body, and advanced physical and metal reflexes. Eragon is described as having brown hair and brown eyes. He is compassionate, strong, and magically powerful. Brisingr is the third book in the series, called the Inheritance Cycle. Eragon and I share many similarities and differences.

We’re similar in the aspect that we’ll both do anything to protect our family and friends. We’re also similar in the regards of the fact that sometimes we speak hastily, thinking that we’re right when we could be wrong. Eragon and I both also tend to be a little naïve and trusting of people when they could potentially be enemies. We both are compassionate and can’t stand to see people get hurt. Eragon and I share a hatred for injustice and willingness to fight against injustice, even if it seems like a lost cause.

There also some differences between me and Eragon. He does things hastily and without thought, whereas I tend to think actions over before committing to something. He also puts himself into danger to help enemies and people he doesn’t even like, and causes himself and others great stress doing something. I tend to not help my enemies when later they will be trying to kill me, thank you very much. He also immediately grows suspicious if someone reveals something g to him that’s not even their fault, such as haven’t someone terrible for a father. I would watch them and be cautious for attacks, but if someone I knew and was close friends with revealed that their father was someone evil, I wouldn’t be ready to kick them out or fight them once they told me.
