i loved the last chapter. i know you had difficulty writing it and were a little worried, so i just want to say that it was really QUITE good. i love the rest of the work and i'm sure this has happened before throughout the course of reading it, but my heart was POUNDING!

Glad you enjoyed it! Really relieved to hear that the battle scene in particular came off well, because by the time I put it up, I’d been over it so many times that I felt nothing while reading it, and then worried that would transfer to readers.

One of the hardest things to learn as a writer in general has been that sometimes the things you feel are the most disconnected and fractured and fragmented are actually going to read okay (or well even), and it’s hard to predict. Like, if you don’t feel good about a chapter, it doesn’t mean other people aren’t going to feel good about it?

It’s a weird thing. (It’s the same with art though, sometimes you draw something and you’re like ‘ehhhh’ and everyone else is like ‘YESSSSSS’ and then sometimes you draw something and you’re like ‘YESSSSS’ and everyone else is like *cricket sounds*)

Ok so I've been emailing this guy back and forth for about a week now and he's so nice and he sent me a selfie of him and he's so cute omgggg. Anyways. I want to know if he's Christian but I'm not sure how to bring it up.. do you have any advice? 💜

Hi! Aww this is cute! Hmmm let me see, I’m kinda one of those people who will straight up ask lol…I’d just be like “I am just curious to know if you are a Christian?”

I don’t really know what advice to give actually…maybe you could just ask Him if He beieves in God and go from there? Sorry I am not sure really what advice to give… maybe followers can help! Guys do you have any advice to offer?? Sorry I can’t help much :/ I hope things go well. God Bless you!

Hey guys!! Some updates with those cards that I made, cause a loooot of people were interested in them.

I completely ran out of them at the con! Literally I put them down on a table and they were gone within 3 minutes. I was just barely able to get some to the panel actors before they ran out LOL

So, those of you who on here who were asking about getting some, I cpuld take orders of them, if you guys want! Now that I have time and can also finish making the rest of the nations I didnt get to make (nordics, tomato family, germanics, Ukraine and Belarus) So if you guys are still interested in getting some cards, I could make an order sheet? It’s up to you guys!

A quick MITAM review for you from me.

1.) Hey Angel - What a way to kick off this album…! A tall and dominant song. That beat is like a train coming at you, and I liked this from the first listen. I looove the “Bittersweet Symphony” resemblance it has, I also hear some Oasis in this tune. Love the anthemic vocals. The way Harry sings “Hey angel, tell me do you ever try to come to the other siiiIIIIIIde?” like, dammmmmm. I love how rocky he can get his voice to sound.. Flawless delivery. Fantastic tune. 

(I’ve given my opinion on the next three songs many a time, but some quick thoughts again.)

2.) Drag Me Down - Still a JAM, still a favorite of mine. This a song that takes a stand, this is the song you take with you to war. It pulses. Love the slick groove, the brash guitar riffs, and the powerful lyrics. Harry’s high notes… 10 stars in the book for him. And his little laugh at the end.. pls. 

3.) Perfect - I actually find myself loving this more and more. It’s like the perfect pop song. It follows the pop-song-recipe to the dot though, but it’s still a little cheeky, which I like. The way Harry sings the word “rendezvous” is enough reason to love this song. 

4.) Infinity - The last minute of this song with the crescendo is the best part for me. I think the choruses and verses before that are okay, but I love waiting and getting that build up.. and the there’s just fireworks everywhere. Absolutely love the Coldplay-esque ending with Harry’s high notes backing it. 

5.) End of the day - I was so hopeful when I heard Harry’s first verse. Love the lyrics in that first verse. “I told her that I loved her, was not sure if she knew. The roof was pretty windy and she didn’t say a word.” Suuuuuch charm over those lyrics. I love the piano trotting along to Harry’s vocals, it’s a light, airy start, but it falls through on the choruses for me. I don’t love them, they’re too jarringly out of place. I appreciate them taking the risque, but no :p But then we come to Liam’s verse, and he sounds so good. A very cool high-note from Louis in this, and the high-notes from Harry towards the end are fantastic. (Can honestly say that Zayn didn’t strike my mind not even once whilst listening to this album the first time. Didn’t miss his high-notes or vocals at all, the other boys, (mainly Harry as he has most of them,) are nailing the high-notes like it’s nothing. 

6.) If I Could Fly - Love how they stripped it down, and that we get to hear the strings and the piano so clearly. The vocal delivery from the boys is again, so damn good. It feels like they’re standing in your living room singing to right to you, it’s so intimate-sounding. So believable. The way Harry sings “I hope that you don’t run from me,” breaks my heart. The way he pronounces the word ‘me’ especially. His voice slightly breaks on that word, and it just feels like longing. Gorgeous. “I’m missing half of me,” again, amazing. His voice is so layered, and in this song he evokes emotion. It’s warm, and he brings that air of desperation that you want to hear in a song like this. At least I do. And the way Harry goes up in falsetto at the end there, and his voice backing the other boys towards the ends… Regardless of what’s inside of you, forget it … tears. 

7.) Long Way Down - So serene and organic. Def brought me back to “Drops of Jupiter” by Train, and I get a slight John Mayer feel from the guitars on this, and that’s a huge compliment. Gorgeous guitar tone, love the hooks. Love how Niall sounds on the first verse, and Louis on his verse. I’m not a massive fan of his voice, so I prefer it when he leans back with his vocals like he does on this tune. Lovely. And again, Harry… Fucking brings IT. This song feels like a warm Summer’s day. It feels like a light breeze. Like the first sip of coffee in the morning. Like a warm hug. I love it.

8.) Never Enough - When I first heard this song, I was so puzzled and surprised lol. It gives me a Jungle Book feeling or The Lion King vibe or something, haha. But I absolutely dig it. It’s unstoppable. The ‘HOAH’s’ are wicked. Such a catchy song. “Lips so good I forget my name.” Yes, niiiice one. “Come Owwwn!” AH! I’m also so madly in LOVE with the sax on this!! So funky and cool. Again, Harry drives the chorus in a superb way. Love when Liam is riffing and backing Harry in the background towards the end, so slick and effortless from Liam. You can tell that they had a lot of fun with song, it’s like the no-holds-barred song on the album. FUN, FUN, FUN song. 

9.) Olivia - Beatles vibe allllll the way, and what’s not to love about that. I love how they’re not afraid of trying new things and exploring new landscapes. Love the strings and the horns. Love this; “This isn’t the stain of a red wine, I’m bleeding love.” Also the lyric “Don’t let me go”, a nice little throwback to Harry’s song titled the same..<3 And the bridge is sooooo pretty, oh my gosh. The way harry sings, When you go, and I’m alone, you live in my imagination. The summertime and butterflies, all belong to your creation.” so lovely, love those lyrics too. The way in which he alters his voice to fit each song on this record blows me away. This song requires the sweet in his voice, and you get exactly that. Everything in this song is so delicately arranged. “”Olivia” was Harry’s genius.” - Bunetta. TRUTH. 

10.) What A Feeling I got emotional listening to this song, it was love at first listen. They’ve used the 70′s and 80′s influences in a fantastic way with this song. I feel like I’m listening to a concoction of the best parts in songs from bands like Bee Gees and Fleetwood Mac. They’ve gone old-school, but they sound CURRENT. It’s still highly original. Swaying, sexy beat, KILLER chorus, great lyrics, fantastic instrumentation, the bridge, vocals, every piece of the puzzle fits. I want to go road-tripping with this song, windows rolled down, wind blowing in my hair, total bliss. Or go roller-skating with my friends and get drinks afterwards. California-vibing. “What a feeling to be a king beside you somehow.” Always down for guys who address women as queens. (We need more of that in music today.) When the instrumentation stills and you hear their harmonies.. wow, and then the beat kicks in again, and you get those soaring harmonies in the background over the lyrics “I wish I could be there now.” I could cry, it’s so beautiful and impactful. This song is a scintillating collection of beautiful melodies and sky-scraping harmonies, and this is now one of my favorite songs.. ever. 

11.) Love You Goodbye - Another full-volume tune… The intro has a short haunting feel to it, which I love. "If tomorrow you won’t be mine, won’t you give it to me one last time.“ Uh, YEAH! So hot. When the music stills and you just get Harry singing “Oh why you wearing that to walk out of my life,” beautiful. Love the guitars near the end in this song too. Good stuff. 

12.) I Want to Write You a Song - Oh, be still my heart. With minimal guitar strumming and vocals, this is simplicity at its finest. It doesn’t bite at you with a complicated melody or a lot of production, it kinda just nudges you on the shoulder and invites you in. I love that you can hear someone writing softly under this song, a very clever detail. This song is a treasure. The melodies, the harmonies…The way they go up in falsettos, just exquisite vocals. But Harry’s verse after the bridge.. It makes me weep. The way he sings “Everything I need I get from you, and giving back is all I wanna do,” God, those lyrics and his earnest delivery hits me right in the heart. I couldn’t be more in love with this song. <3

13.) History - First thought; the perfect camp fire, sing-a-long tune. Very catchy, sweet lyrics, homely vibe. A flavored, rootsy and wooden tune. Not a fave, but I love the sentiment. I love what they wanted to get across with this song. And it’ll probably grow on me.. :)

14.) Temporary Fix - Would’ve loved to see this in the original edition! Kinda has that The Kinks, The Strokes vibe to it, which I dig. And again, color me impressed! Harry’s deep timbre, his almost growling vocals on this dirty little number crawls up my thighs. Again, he alters his voice to fit the sentiment and the mood of the song.. He’s incredible okay. “Your body is saying everything, I don’t have to read your mind. Feel you on my neck while I’m calling a taxi. Climbing over me while I climb in the backseat.” What a lovely imagery… And Harry’s scream… Yes. I’m about this life. I love this song. 

5.) Walking in the Wind - Again, would’ve loved to see this one on the main edition, it’s too good for it not to be, imo. This track is right up my alley, and I feel like it has Harry written all over it. They’ve drawn all the right influences from Paul Simon on this, from the drumming beat to the vocal delivery, it’s all very Paul Simon-y, in the best way. The first verse is one of my favorite lyrical parts on the album. Excerpt from it; “If you’re lost, just look for me. You’ll find me in the region of the summer stars.” Ahh.. beautiful. Love the vocals from all of the boys on this so much. The chorus is amazing, and Harry killsss the bridge too. Towards the end, Harry is driving the chorus, but he’s also the one doing backing vocals and the high notes, and Harry on top of Harry is gold in my ears, haha :)  A deeply warm, spellbinding, tasteful song. 

16.) Wolves - Love the chorus, love the “Ooh-ooh-ooh’ hook. Again, Harry is sounding fantastic. “When the wolves come out, headed straight for your heart, like a bullet in the dark.” Love that line. I get a little early Coldplay/Bruce Springsteen feel on this tune, and I love that. Cool number. 

7.) A.M. - Such a delightful and sweet closing number. I love the message this one has, it’s so relatable. A total chill, unpretentious song. It feels like we’re there with them, talking, drinking, hanging out as friends. It’s so conversational. “We’re just swimming around in our glasses. And talking out of our asses.” I adore this song, and I want to hug it. 

This is a strong, melodic, coherent and absolutely charming album that veers from moments of absolute greatness to moments of touching simplicity. It’s a very well-crafted and detailed album, yet they have left room for some rough edges. It’s artistic and exploratory. It’s got so much HEART. And they’ve never sounded better. Individually and together. I’m so incredibly proud of them, and seeing them love this record as much as I do, absolutely warms my heart. I’m so fucking proud of what they’ve created whilst touring and living hectic lives. And if you keep in mind what happened prior to this album, it’s even more impressive. I love these boys, and I hope they get a ton of praise and critical and public acclaim for this album. They deserve all of it and more. *pops the champagne*
