“Why do I not hear any music?” Riley’s mother called from the other room. With a slight roll of the eye she sits herself at the bench of the piano, allowing her fingers to delicately dance around the ivory keys. She was never one for playing instruments.  

That all started with her mother. She was set on her children having musical knowledge, since she never had the opportunity to take lessons when she was growing up.  

So, when Riley was 6, she started playing violin. However, she spent more time trying to plunk out the violin sheet music on the old piano in their living room than she did actually practicing the violin. Her mother then decided piano would be a more suitable fit for the rambunctious child.  

Riley certainly liked the sound of music, it was the tedious, unimaginative lessons she hated the most. Her instructor would make her play the same melancholy songs over and over again, which by now she was sure she could play those songs in her sleep.  

A half an hour goes by and she reaches the point in her playing where her mother usually tells her to ‘start over’ or to 'play like you love it’ but there’s nothing but silence as the tune comes to an end.  

Curious as to what is going on, the brunette rises from her seat, slowly inching her way out of the room to find an empty kitchen. She walks further in and sees her parents whispering to each other on the other side of the hallway. When her mother notices her hovering by the doorway, she shoots Riley a glare and points in the direction of the piano room, instructing her to leave.

Meet the JSE Community Prompt Fill!

Soooo I decided to fill this community meme out; I’ve thought it was a great idea to get to know people ever since I heard about it and I figured you might as well know about me if you really want to ^^” @no-strings-puppet 

1. Name, Age, Country? (I always like seeing country cus it’s incredible how widespread the community is sometimes)

My name is Rilia, (I’d rather not say my age, if that’s okay), and I live in the USA!

2. Appearance? (For all you artists you can draw some pictures of yourselves!!)

Hey there, it’s me! 5′ 6″, dark hair, dark eyes, glasses, pajamas, slippers (ALWAYS SLIPPERS), etcetera, ectera XD

3. Hobbies?

I love writing, drawing, cosplaying, memorizing movie quotes, and collecting Transformers toys!

4. What is your dream job?

I’m currently working to become an author/editor! It’s what I’ve wanted to do since I was about nine years old!

5. What kind of sh** would we find in your bag?

Really weird, random things! Probably a granola bar and a half-finished water bottle from a month ago, spare change, a package of Kleenex, a notebook, and it may or may not have my wallet, depending on the bag!

6. How would you describe your personality?

I’m definitely an introvert, nervous around new people and kind of introspective, but excitable and occasionally mischievous around people I trust. I’m extremely loyal and I like to think of myself as clever. People have always said I’m older than my years, so take that for what you will. I don’t like to be rushed on anything and I’m pretty relaxed about everything except making decisions, which brings up a crazed beast called “insecurity” >.> But I’ll make those decisions eventually! I take life day by day; I’ve never wished to grow up faster.

7. When did you find Jack’s channel?

I’m actually a very new fan; I only found him approximately three months ago! At the time I only knew and followed Jontron; I’d vaguely heard the name Pewdiepie before, but I hadn’t heard of Jack at all. When I did find him, I wasn’t sure I liked him, so I alternated between him and Pewdiepie. Then I found Markiplier, realized they were all friends, and started watching all three of them! But it was Jack who had piqued my curiosity. <3

8. Put in order your top 3 favourite Egos!


1. If it wasn’t obvious by my username, I’m pretty much in love with Dr. Schneeplestein XD Don’t ask me why, but I always, ALWAYS latch onto characters who aren’t always in the forefront when it comes to popularity. He’s my boy <3

2. I think Jackieboy Man gets second place! He’s the kind of hero I’d like to see protecting my city! I love how open and genuine and brave he is and I have a feeling he would give great hugs! 

3. Errrrrfh, I really can’t choose between Chase and Anti! Chase is my poor, sweet, sad boy who needs to be protected vs. Anti, who always manages to put me in a cold sweat and is an incredible villain! I think they alternate for third place depending on the mood I’m in and what I’ve been watching.

9. Favourite/ most nostalgic video/series of Jack’s to watch? (Multiple answers are fine, I know I’ll find it hard to answer)

I think the oldest videos I’ve watched have been the Evie and Facade videos and they’re absolutely hilarious XD I think Evie was the reason I really started getting into Jack’s community – that and when he played his first fan games! Those were amazing!

10. Would you describe yourself as an active member or a quiet member of the community?

I’d say I’m a pretty active member! I may be a baby fan, but I’m doing my part!

If you’re an active member, what is your favourite part of what you do? Do you write fanfiction? Fanart? Theories? Or do you just enjoy chatting with others?

I do both fanart and fanfiction, though most of my fanfiction is on Archive Of Our Own instead of Tumblr. I haven’t really been reposting it because I don’t know if anyone’s really interested in reading them, haha. 

So there you have it! I hope to see some of your submissions soon and I hope you find mine interesting :D
