I discovered this triangular pencil amongst my other pencils. It is an oddity, and I have no idea whence it came. The word “hardware” is written on one side), KINGDONS on a second, and Andover 65005 (an old form of telephone number if it’s a UK one) on the third.

So, it appears to advertise a hardware shop called Kingdons, located in Andover, Hampshire. The shop name is not coming up on a Google search, which suggests that it closed down or was taken over years ago.

I have no idea how this pencil came to be in my house! I have only been to Hampshire once within the last 40 years, and I would not have picked up this pencil there. Nobody who has visited my house in the past 30 years has spent time in Hampshire, as far as I know. All I know is that it must date from the 1970s at latest to have the telephone number written like that.

Or, maybe there’s a pencil fairy…

The T-Rex paddock was not sound proof, it could hear the I-Rex just outside. T was not thinking about eating Claire, she was thinking about establishing her dominance with I as the apex predator. Claire simply assisted her. ~glides away~

I agree! The T-Rex paddock and the T-Rex kingdon attraction were very close to Main Street. It’s pretty much impossible that good old Rexy could not hear the Indominus and Raptors fighting outside.

《 Kingdon AU》

Orb-blood was now crowned as King of the Trizone Kingdom. He was having conflict lately, he didn’t want to be wed with any stranger. He was just eating his chocolate cheesecake until his butler came in, making him drop his cake. “Hey what the fuck dude?!– Oh my apologies it’s just you Henry. Please knock next time.” He grumbled, cleaning after his messes as the butler sighed.

“Sire, my apologies but the woman from certain Kingdoms had arrived to be analyzed. You have to least try to like one of them.” He mumbled, Orb-blood groaned he was never interested much in woman. He cared about personality. He remember back in the days as a kid, he really used to like this student in 2nd grade and they would house during free time.

He kept a picture of them since then, always keeping it on his night stand. He sighed and got dressed for the people waiting for him.

Vanya was the guest as he walked up to the double doors. He knocked in a gentle manner waiting for the kings to answer.

after going through some tags and stocking up my queue with Old Kingdom posts, here is a small PSA for you all: if you haven’t read Garth Nix’s Old Kingdon series, you should really check it out

here are our three main protagonists, all teenage girls


  • a high school honor student whose best subjects include magic and fencing
  • in her spare time she learns how to enter death and banish zombies
  • when her father disappears, she goes alone to a magical country that she hasn’t visited since she was a child to try and rescue him 
  • becomes a full-fledged Abhorsen (basically a reverse necromancer who fights actual necromancers and occasionally super-powerful demonic entities) at the age of 18


  • lives in a community of (mostly female) seers, but who feels isolated from the others because she never develops prophetic abilities
  • when she gets really lonely she tries to create a dog sending for herself (basically a non-sentient magical construct who will do what it’s enchanted to do, kind of like building herself a robot dog) and instead ends up summoning an actual talking dog with her own set of mysterious powers
  • works in the most dangerous library in the world (there are malicious magical creatures imprisoned in the lower levels, and the librarians carry around swords and whistles in case they get into trouble)  
  • can easily be read as somewhere on the aromantic and asexual spectrums


  • a CANONICALLY aromantic and asexual character who spells out her feelings about sex and romance several times in the text
  • really outdoorsy and good at hunting and just wants to be able to go live out in the forest and become a ranger 
  • she’s stubborn, speaks her mind, and doesn’t care what others think of her, and is also really endearing and tries hard to do the right thing
  • a talented fighter who has berserker abilities that she must learn to control 
  • her story also involves a revenge quest and controlling demons through sheer strength of will
