Creepypastas are often what many think of when it comes to today’s Internet culture, especially during Halloween time. For those (like two or three of you) who have no idea what a creepypasta is, it’s an Internet urban legend that has been passed through message boards or shared online as stories. They range from photographs with a mysterious backstory, others with detailed lore that continue to be rewritten to this day.
Update: September 9th, 2016.
Yesterday, I spent my time having so much fun at Furry Migration 2016, whose theme was ‘Quest for Shiny’ amid a treasure hunt I sadly didn’t take part in. Although it wasn’t as massive as something like Anthrocon in Pittsburgh, the convention is still a ton of fun. After the Opening Ceremonies and a greeting to the Guests of Honor, the convention began with heavy cheer and barking! Oh, and some fursuits :3
Hello everybody! I just wanted to inform you that today is day one of me visiting Furry Migration 2016, a furry convention held annually at the wonderful Hyatt in Minneapolis. Today, I’ll be visiting fellow furry writers, including the artistic Ursula Vernon, author of the Hugo award-winning “Digger” webcomic, and the talented Kyell Gold, author of “Waterways” and countless other books!. I hope to give you photos, advice for writers and artists, tales of what I’d been up to, etc. I can’t guarantee I’ll give consistent updates, but I do hope to share my experience at my second furry convention!
Have a wonderful day, and I’ll give you updates soon! 🙂

I know that my next review isn’t supposed to be out until next week, but after reading this book I just had to write my opinion on this. This hasn’t been published a whole week and it sounded like a good idea to buy it soon as I could.
Albert Einstein once said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” In some ways, he is correct. It is the imagination of a person that depends on their success in life, and the change they bring to the world. Whether they be an artist, a poet, a tinker, or even your average handsome book critic on the Internet, creativity gives us ambition. Ambition guides us, and ideas drive us to make things.
“An Ember in the Ashes” by Sabaa Tahir. This is a novel that I’ve been waiting an eternity to get to ever since I spotted it on the shelves and read the back cover. If you know me really well, I used to see fantasy as this cookie-cutter genre. I despised reading such novels because I always assumed that all it involved were kings, dwarves, elves, and dragons and such. And…yeah you can argue I wasn’t that far off.
But then last year I reviewed a certain novel that’s become a favorite of mine called “The Young Elites” by Marie Lu. And in case you haven’t read the review (not that you can’t via the link but still), you know how much I love it! 😀
THE FOLLOWING REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS FROM BOTH ‘BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE’ COMIC AND THE FILM I’M REVIEWING TODAY. IF YOU’VE READ THE COMIC BUT HAVE NOT SEEN THE FILM (OR VICE-VERSA), PLEASE GO WATCH IT BEFORE CONTINUING TO READ.
Comic books. They’re a staple of literature and the superhero genre. They are often a kid’s introduction to their favorite superheroes, from DC Comic’s charismatic Superman to Marvel’s popular Avengers, comic books are fantastic gateways of fiction for many fans of superheroes. They don’t just have entertaining heroes and action, but good drama, complex characters, wonderful stories, and dark tones that give way to great stories.
What makes the bond of an owner and a pet so special? What makes that bond so inseparable in someone’s youth and adulthood? These are questions I’ve asked ever since my first dog died over a decade ago, and I’ve learned the answer to as I grew up.
“Pax” is a novel I initially noticed while visiting a local bookstore, and was drawn to how simple yet detailed Jon Klassen’s illustration of the cover showed. Add Sara Pennypacker’s heartwarming and poignantly timeless writing style similar to “Coraline”, and you get s novel that left me yearning for a good ending.
They say books are like mirrors, and that the characters and settings in them are reflections of you and your surroundings. I partially disagree; books are more like cracked mirrors, where the reflections we see are different but similar enough to show the faults in ourselves and the world.
But that’s just my beliefs.
