I just finished the fifth book in the Land of Stories series and once again I am in awe. Chris Colfer is a fantastic writer! Each of the characters is so well developed. Like it would have been really easy to make Red a bitchy brat, but you can see under her shallow exterior she does have a good heart. The books are marketed towards kids but, going into college as an English major, I am in awe. These books start off so simple and grow on each other. The characters grow. The themes develop at a rate that makes sense. Nothing is ever forced. The fighting is always in the right place, Conner’s off handed references and often dumb comments are almost always perfectly placed, the romance is always good without being overwhelming.
Something I need to gush about is the fabulousness that is Jack and Goldilocks. It is fucking canon that they have had sex, not something you’d see in a children’s series. But more than that they love each other. Not the idea of each other or the idea of the future they can have. No. Jack is completely and utterly smitten with his now wife. He proposed while they were in the middle of battle because he knew she’d think it would be romantic. They talk to each other. Not just flirt like other characters, they actually communicate what they’re thinking. Jack knows she has walls and knows she has secrets. That doesn’t piss him off, it infatuates him. Goldilocks is literally the epitome of femenism. She can kick ass, she can save the day, she can be the girlfriend for Red, she can be a wife to Jack (SPOILER) and mother to her son, she can lead by example and follow those who she thinks are worth following. Plus how often does a couple like this:
A. Get together
B. Stay together/ get married
C. Have a kid
Especially in a genre that’s becoming more and more about unattainable love this is a rare and much needed win. (I need more fan art of them stat)
More than that both the main characters, Alex and Conner, are evolving. They were passable in The Wishing Spell but in the books since they’ve both grown away from their tropes as the studious one and the slacking joker (seriously does every set of twins have to be like that). Alex has gone through very relatable issues. She’s grown up different, very studious and therefore mocked by her classmates. Once she’s in the fairy tale world, you’d think that suddenly everything is good and grand. But it’s not. She is walking a very thin line between good and evil since book three. When she loses her temper, she loses her motherfucking temper. She’s gone from a nobody to the fairy godmother. She’s also an emotional teenage girl. As much as I hate saying this, hormones make you do stupid shit. (I’m a teenage female going off my own experience). But she’s also facing the most frustrating thing ever- adults that won’t listen to her. Yes there are more frustrating things, but the entire first part of the fourth book is no one believing her about the Masked Man. She wants to help people but to help them she has to make questionable decisions. Decisions that other people- Ezmia, the evil queen- have made and suffered for.
Then you have Conner. Conner Jonathan Bailey is my son I swear to god. He is awkward and clumsy and wants the world to make sense. He cracks jokes at inappropriate times, often getting his foot in his mouth, but his writing. The fifth book is exploring his writing. It was all so interesting. As a writer myself, I love how he viewed his worlds. With pride and awe. There are times that writing a story doesn’t seem that exciting, especially when you’re writing fiction. Because a writer’s job is to create worlds and people and events that paint your mind with black words on white paper. That’s mind boggling and it’s my job. Conner goes from a little boy to a far more mature young man. He has a passion for writing. He was inspired by people in his home world and in the Land of Stories. He took personalities and altered them for the setting. He has a lot of doubts about himself which is what any artist has. But my god, his imagination is spectacular (also there was a great part where Alex asks Conner what he would do if a guy showed up and said he was the author of their story. A+ self insertion joke, Mr. Colfer). Conner still uses humor as a coping mechanism, but he is also more courageous. He’s willing to run into a fight even if he’s terrifed.
Plus the themes that Colfer explores are done so beautifully. Everything is just so beautiful. The characters that are in love are genuinely in love. The characters that are just best friends act like best friends. The women are beautifully written and the men just as well. But more than that, this is the kind of book series you could read as a kid and as an adult.
Overall, this series is (as much as I don’t want to say it) just as good as Harry Potter. If not better. Harry Potter is obviously amazing and got me into reading and writing, but this series explores stories not just magic. People are beginning to understand how important stories are. Anyone can be a hero or a villain, depending on whose telling the story. The Land of Stories explores both sides. Perfect princesses are violent and short tempered. Dashing princes and knights can be afraid, cower, and sew. People that achieved something in their childhood don’t always grow up to get what they want. And best of all, ANYONE CAN BE A HERO! I work with kids a lot, so when they tell me they aren’t good enough or that they can’t do something because someone can do it better, I want to cry. I once had a 6 year old boy tell me there was no such thing as magic. This series shows that you can do so much to help peopl even if you don’t have powers. You can do things that scare you and that counts as being brave. IT TEACHES YOUNG GIRLS TO LOOK UP TO THEMSELVES AND FIND THEIR CALLING AND TO BASICALLY TELL ANYONE WHO SAYS THEY CAN’T DO SOMETHING TO GO FUCK THEMSELVES! YOUNG BOYS ARE ALLOWED TO CRY AND BE SCARED AND BE HUMAN AND STILL BE BRAVE!!!
If you haven’t read the story, please do. You will not regret it.
It wasn’t really fussing, Owen realised, as he opened the
doors of the ambulance. It sounded more like loud, painful groans. The first
thing he saw when the doors opened was the windshield wiper lodged dangerously
close to her sternum. He stood frozen in his spot as the paramedics took her
out and gave him the usual bullet points.
“34 year old female, passenger to exploding ambulance. Large
head lac which might also be a serious head trauma, can’t find the source of
blood. Shoulder dislocated and lac bad but managed. Stomach wound…” the
paramedic drilled. Owen heard the words coming out of the paramedic’s mouth,
but he didn’t listen. All he could hear was the sounds of her groaning and
moaning as she fought against the grip of the gurney. Her blue eyes were wide with
fear and her breathing was laboured, fogging up the gas mask that covered her
Don’t move, she told
herself, you’ll only make things worse. Just keep calm. Let them do their job.
“Doctor?” the paramedic called, pulling Owen out of his
trance. They were in a trauma room, now, with Jackson, April, Bailey, Jo and
Stephanie. He didn’t even realised they’d moved from outside to here.
“Sorry,” Owen said, blinking a few times, “have you given
her any pain meds? She seems to be in a lot of pain.”
No pain meds. I’m
“She’s refusing anything except tramadol,” the paramedic
said, “She’s tachycardic and tachypnoeic.” He nodded at Owen and left the room.
As a form of comfort, Owen held onto the hand that was unharmed, her left hand,
and smiled at Amelia with glistened eyes.
I wish you didn’t have
to see me like this. You look so, so sad.
The next ten minutes was absolute chaos. Doctors were
arguing, handing instruments, IV bags and other objects to one another as they
worked to save one of their own. There was blood all over her face and hair, a
peculiar contrast to her bright blue eyes. Around her, Amelia could see the
doctors yelling, her painful headache distracting her and preventing her from
hearing much. Stephanie shone her penlight in both Amelia’s eyes and prodded
around her head, saying something incomprehensible to Owen after she did her check-up.
Amelia noticed there was a worried look on her face as she analysed the source
of all the blood on her head. She winced and groaned at one point when
Stephanie touched a certain part of head, and the resident glanced Owen’s way.
“Shoulder with the glass is dislocated,” Jo said, “I need you
guys to hold her down so I can pop it back in before it becomes a problem.”
Hearing Jo say the words dislocated and
pop was enough to spike Amelia’s
heartrate, and everyone saw it on the monitor.
Maybe some drugs wouldn’t
be so bad.
“Okay guys, stop,” Jackson interrupted. They all looked up at
him, each pausing what they were doing, “She’s a doctor, she can understand
what we’re saying. Try to keep the medical jargon to a minimum. High blood
pressure is not a very good combination with these wounds.” They all nodded and
resumed their tasks. Jo agonisingly removed the glass in her shoulder without any
excessive bleeding, much to Amelia’s displeasure.
Fucking hell, Wilson.
If I survive this, you’re getting scut for the rest of your life.
Owen could only
imagine how much pain she was going through, being on such a weak, non-opioid,
pain med like tramadol. The pain would only get worse from here. He admired her
strength, but this was a suicide mission that she was on and it would only make
things harder and more painful.
“Dr. Avery, hold her legs,” Jo instructed, “Dr. Kepner, keep
her torso steady. Stephanie, keep her head stable. Dr. Hunt, hold her other
shoulder.” All the doctors moved into position and Jo closed her eyes momentarily.
“I’m so sorry, Dr.
Shepherd,” she whispered to Amelia. Jo rested one hand on Amelia’s shoulder and
the other held onto her arm. She held on tight and pulled like Callie had
taught her to, relieved when she heard the cracking sound of Amelia’s shoulder being
put back in place. Amelia, however, was not relieved. She had a death grip on
Owen’s hand as she felt the intense, piercing pain shoot right up her neck,
stiffening the muscles in her jaw as she tried to stifle her incessant
screaming. The world seemed in hyper drive as adrenaline pulsated through her
veins with loud booms, every sound magnified to the point where her head hurt.
Amidst the pain, she’d somehow managed to slip loose of Jackson’s grip and kick
him in the face.
Oops, sorry Avery.
“I’m okay,” Jackson alerted everyone although no one asked. His
eye was already beginning to swell.
Oh, that’s a nasty
The vitals monitor had begun to beat erratically as her
blood pressure skyrocketed. There were dark dots flashing in her vision as the
pain made her gasp and stagger for breaths she couldn’t catch. Owen saw it
before anyone else and looked up to April for help.
“Crap,” April hissed as she noticed Amelia’s lips turning
blue, “I think she has a tension pneumothorax.” Before April could grab a chest
tube, Bailey beat her to it, cutting away Amelia’s navy blue scrub top and
making an incision above her second rib. She stuck the chest tube in and waited
for the air to be released, but nothing happened. Bailey stuck her finger in
the incision and tried to feel what was wrong, but was distracted by April
stabbing a tension relieving needle into Amelia’s stomach.
“What the hell are you doing, Kepner?” Bailey yelled at the
“Hoping,” she responded as she eyed Amelia’s torso
“You have got to be out of your damn…” Bailey began, but was
cut off by the sound of Amelia exhaling.
“Tension gastrothorax,” April said, answering Bailey’s gaze at
her and silence, “the windshield wiper must have cut her diaphragm. Saw it in
my most recent tour a few months ago.”
“April you could’ve killed her,” Jackson berated angrily, “you
don’t eyeball those kinds of things.”
“She would’ve died anyways, Jackson,” she countered, “What
else was I supposed to do?”
“Not that!” he scolded, “This is so typical of-“
“Alright, enough,” Bailey shouted, “Now if you haven’t
noticed, somebody is stretched out on this table here, fighting for her life.
There is no time for the two of you to be having a marriage counselling session.”
Amelia blinked her eyes wearily as she watched the doctors around her squabble
like a bunch of high schoolers on a group project.
I can’t believe they’re
having a counselling session while I’m here dying on a table.
She felt Owen suddenly let go of her hand and, in the corner
of her eye, leave the room.
“Pulse ox is low,” Stephanie said abruptly, trying to stray
away from the topic of April and Jackson’s doomed marriage, “we need to get a
CT and intubate her.”
Finally, someone with
their head on. This is why you’re my favourite.
“Jo, book an OR,” Bailey instructed. Jo ran out of the room to
dial the number for the OR floor.
“We need to get a CT,” Stephanie insisted once again.
“We don’t have time for that,” Jackson thoughtfully answered.
My head is bleeding
like a waterfall, how could we not have time for that?
“Jackson is right,” April agreed, “The needle I stuck in her
stomach isn’t going to relieve the pressure forever and the object impaling her
is of more concern than a supposed severe concussion.”
“A supposed severe concussion?” Stephanie accused angrily, “How could this ever be considered just a concussion?!”
“Edwards, how sure are you that she needs this CT?” Bailey
asked. She believed that Stephanie knew what she was talking about, considering
the fact that she’d been basically breathing the oxygen, that came out of Amelia’s
lungs, for over a year. Sometimes residents picked up on things that attendings
were usually too busy or stressed about other parts of the body to notice.
90% sure. I could have
a subdural hematoma.
“I’m 90% sure that she needs the CT.”
Just go in blind; you’ve
done it before with me.
“ Considering all
the bleeding coming from her head,” Stephanie continued, “ and the fact that
her pupils aren’t equally responsive, ranging from dilated to contracted very
quickly, I’m almost certain she has a subdural he-“
Amelia’s eyes rolled back in her head and her body arched
upwards and stiffened at the same time the vitals monitor began beeping again.
“Think she just has a concussion now?” Stephanie sarcastically
said. All the doctors held Amelia’s body
down and worked to control the seizure and avoid brain damage.
“OR 1 is free and booked,” Jo said as she came back,
horrified by the image in front of her. She tried her best to hide it though,
despite the sickness she felt coming.
“Push 1 gram of phenytoin,” April instructed, “there’s definitely
no time for a CT, Edwards. Page Nelson, tell him to meet us there.”
“Nelson left for the day,” Bailey recalled, “Shepherd was
covering his shift for him.” The
monitors became regular with their noises again as Amelia came down from her
“I’ll do it,” Stephanie said as she drew her penlight from
her lab coat to check Amelia’s eyes, “I’ll go in blind.” Her blue irises
glistened breathtakingly against the light. “Her left pupil is blown. I’m 95%
sure it’s an acute subdural hematoma. If we don’t move now…” Stephanie was cut
off by the monitors beeping again, this time notifying the doctors that Amelia’s
heart had gone into ventricular fibrillation.
“Damn it,” April cursed under her breath, “can’t we just get
a break for once?”
From the other side of the window, Owen watched with bloodshot
eyes as they filled Amelia to the brim with drugs and epi, charging the paddles
and shocking her. He exhaled a breath he didn’t know he was holding and watched
as they basically ran out of the doors and through the ER with her body.
“Wilson,” Owen called hoarsely when she came through the
doors, “what’s going on? Where are they taking her?”
“OR 1,” Jo responded as she followed the gurney. Her heart
went out to Owen. She could only imagine how much of a mess she’d be in if Alex
ever got seriously injured like Amelia had. “They’re going to operate,
simultaneously, on her brain and abdomen.”
“Has she been to CT?” Owen asked as he followed Jo, ensuring
that Amelia was getting efficient care, “and they should get an MRI too so they
“No time for that,” Jo responded, “Dr. Edwards is going in
blind. She’s suffering from a tension gastrothorax and an impaled abdomen, on
top of a head trauma which may or may not be a subdural hematoma. She’s already
had one seizure and coded, if we take her for a CT and an MRI, she’ll die.” It
was good that Edwards was operating, he thought. It was almost the same as
having Amelia there herself. The going in blind part was what worried Owen.
“Okay,” he said. Wilson was right, he knew it. He was too
worried to think properly and was glad Jo had taken the time to explain to him,
like a patient’s family member, what was going on with his loved one. When they
got to the elevator, he watched all of them squeeze into it, with Amelia’s
gurney in the middle of them. Just as the elevator doors were about to close,
the monitor went off again, signalling another v-fib. The last thing he saw was
April straddling Amelia and commencing CPR.
When he came to the realisation that what he’d seen just now
might’ve been the last thing he’d remember about her, Owen went outside of the
hospital and threw up in a nearby grassy area.
My boyfriend test fired my Bailey’s red glaze in an electric kiln a few days ago and the result was pretty sweet. The glaze turned out great, except it ran and sealed my mugs to the kiln shelves. In the process of chipping them off, all the mugs cracked.
What amazes me is that the glaze looks totally different than the firings in our gas kiln, but it is the same glaze. I guess the ability to control the cooling rate with an electric kiln affects the outcome a lot. You can’t really see it in the pictures, but in the photo of the mug, the background color is a translucent brown with bright red crystals growing. In the teapot photo, the background color is opaque poopy brown with red blotches (don’t really look like crystals).
All these were fired to cone 9 and have the same glaze.
Tony came down stairs with Bailey and Logan in each arm. Baileys red hair tied back in two as Logan’s head rested on his shoulder. “Hey look there’s mommy and Ruby” he came down softly putting Bailey on the floor to crawl over to her sister and play as Logan refused to get down and cling on to tony. “You want cuddles now buddy” he grinned toothlessly in his blue onesie. Tony kissed his head. Ruby crawled over to pepper and started mumbling. “Mm” she kept repeating. “Are you trying to say mama sweetie?” He smiled looking at pepper.
Cotton’s alternate palettes! These didn’t turn out as well as Zephy’s but translating other people’s outfits onto Cotton’s is a lot harder than I thought it’d be, he doesn’t have much room to add onto.
