Apparently people have tumblr families. 

I would like one. 

I think Sarah is probably my big sister in this family because she’s always either trolling me or telling me to go to bed. 

And Charis and Rae and Chloe will have to be a part of this family too, in some capacity. 

And if you want to be a part of my tumblr family, message me and tell me who you are. 

I think I could use a couple of crazy aunts and uncles and maybe some cousins and a few more siblings and a dad and a mom and maybe even a child of my own and possibly a bodyguard.

(Obviously Bridget is already my twin and Rachel is my lover or possibly my archenemy.)

Yessss I like this experiment.

Yay! Thankies. x]

1) If you could travel to one place you’ve read about in a book, what place would you visit and what book was it from?

Hmm, hard question – well, maybe not so very hard. Narnia, preferably during the Golden Age, or else during the reign of Caspian X.

4) If you could marry a fictional character, which would it be?

Ahahaha. Welp. This one is a bit more difficult than the last, as I’m really not the sort who daydreams about or idealizes fictional men. (I mean really – Darcy? Perfect romantic interest? Pfffft. I mean honestly – besides being full of himself, the guy’s got no sense of humor. None.)

But I’d say probably…either Frederick Wentworth from Persuasion, or Khan Tegus from Shannon Hale’s Book of a Thousand Days.

5) If you could take out a character from a book, who would you want to get rid of? Keep in mind getting rid of a character could change the story completely.

Ooo, good one. Hmm. OH. I know. Mrs. Norris, the spiteful hobgoblin of Mansfield Park. The way it would change to story would be that Maria and Julia wouldn’t be half so spoiled, nor Fanny so miserable. The story probably wouldn’t be so interesting, but I DON’T CARE. Fanny’d be happier.

9) Who would you cast as the main characters of a movie adaptation of your favourite book?

Um. Favorite book? Favorite book? Favorite book?

Error - 404 File Not Found

But I do think it’s a shame that Justine Waddell and Emmy Rossum are too old to play Ella in an accurate version of Ella Enchanted and Addie in Two Princesses of Bamarre, respectively. (I least I think Emmy Rossum is too old – don’t actually know her age.)

20) Can you name 5 characters whose names start with the letter H off the top of your head? If so, prove it.

Haymitch (Abernathy), Hwin, Harry (Potter), Hercule (Poirot), and Hugo (Cabret)

 Nailed it. Well, almost nailed it. Definitely didn’t blow it.

 (Cookies for you if you understand that reference.)

You shall be Emma Watson. Your love will be Lee Pace, and your best friend will be Ruth Wilson.

TWO VOTES FOR EMMA WATSON AS ME. It’s canon. I also may have actually met my love interest, so that’s a plus (I’m not totally sure, but it’s really possible that he was one of the Twilight cast members I met at SDCC).

I like being back in Seattle. 

T&C this morning was like a big family reunion, Sarah glomped me, Sarah had cool hair, I had lunch with Rachel and Charis and now I’m sitting here planning out my research paper on Globalization and Fandom Culture. 

Today is awesome. 

BRING ON THE AWESOME.

I always love talking to you Nellie Da! :)

Here I am!

GUYS I LOVE YOU

Let me tell you a story: 

Once upon a time I was sitting on tumblr and asked people to talk to me. 

At this very moment, The Roommate appeared from the dark recesses of our bedroom. 

The conversation went as follows: 

Roommate: Have you bought food for your sister yet? (my sister eats special food)

Me: No, I’ll have to take the bus tomorrow or something. 

Roommate: If you buy some sour cream for me I’ll drive you, right now. 

Me: …but I’m not wearing pants

Roommate: Put on pants now I am driving you. 

Me: …fine I’ll put on some pants.

AND THEN I GOT BACK AND THERE WERE SEVEN MESSAGES WAITING FOR ME FROM LOVELY PEOPLE AND THAT IS THE END OF THE STORY.

So, after turning in that infamous paper, I took a two-hour nap starting at 3:30pm. 
Now, like all mid-day naps, I had a strange dream. You were there. 
We walked into this party with several other nameless/faceless girls, and who did we find there but Benedict, James McAvoy, David Tennant, Jensen Ackles, and several others…I can’t remember them all. Anyways, though…you went crazy and started running around an hugging everybody. I got a picture with David Tennant, and Benedict ran around hugging everybody too. 
I distinctly remember thinking, “Wow, I’m meeting so many famous people. How did Chloe not know about this? She’s going to be so angry that she wasn’t here”
Then I woke up, and I realized there was no cause for jealousy from anyone. 
I hope you appreciate this. I sometimes wonder at the weird dreams I have. -ephemeraldelights

OH MY HOLY GOODNESS CHARIS I CAN’T EVEN

why is your dream the best thing that could ever possibly happen

why is it not real

that is EXACTLY how I would act if it were real though

and your thought about Chloe omg accurate

I WENT CRAZY AND BENNY AND I WERE HUGGING EVERYBODY 

ephemeraldelights replied to your post: Okay I don’t want to flood people’s dashes with…

Hi, my name is Charis. I’m from Ohio, and I’m really looking forward to buying your first book and reading your second. This, of course, means that you must finish your second one :)

Charis you’re not even really from Ohio stop lying

I don’t even believe your name is Charis

I have on good authority that your real name is Chairs

(good job with the guilt-tripping by the way)

Chloe and Charis and I need nicknames. That’s what we decided yesterday while walking to Fremont for bubble tea.

Charis is called Chairs but would prefer to be something else.

I do not know what to call Chloe.

And neither of them seem to like my old nicknames from highschool, everyone used to call me Danny or Dan…

In short, you should provide us with ridiculous nicknames ready go.

Omg guys Rae is reading my book and telling me all these lovely things about how she likes my characters.

I’m kind of flailing and the face I’m making is ridiculous. 

GUYS WHAT IF SOMEDAY PEOPLE I DON’T KNOW SAY THESE KINDS OF THINGS TO ME BECAUSE THEY JUST HAPPENED TO READ MY BOOK AND LIKED IT. 

Holy Tolkien, I won’t know what to do with myself.

I’ve read everything that you’ve put up. I love it. Just sayin’. The only problem is, that I keep imagining these small children with the heads of Mark Gatiss and Benedict Cumberbatch….slightly disturbing…haha

Yay! You read it! 

Haha, oh my goodness though, that WOULD be disturbing… I haven’t been imagining that… I imagine little Sherlock to look a bit like the Mordred kid (why does his name always escape me… it has the word butter in it…). 

I don’t know how I imagine little Mycroft to look… I guess since he’s my POV character and I’m looking through his eyes, I don’t bother to imagine what he looks like…

ephemeraldelights replied to your postActually I would be really curious to know your head canons for what Sarah and I do all day in England ;)

And Charis… -Has five classes per week with three professors of the female sex. One is French, the other two are of unknown origin…I can’t pinpoint their accents. -Eating out too much, probably…but more in tea shops than pubs.

That’s right, and Charis! The one person I haven’t gotten to skype with individually yet. I just have no idea what you’re even up to, you sneaky little person.
