Thanks for taking care of that rude user. I hope they can someday learn how to follow the Golden Rule. ;)
I hope you're doing well. Sorry about my long span of inactivity. I've been busy of late, needless to say. My brother's wedding is tomorrow, and its advent has found my family and I scrambling in preparation for that event. I've also been working on preparing for my driving test, which I took on Tuesday. Anyway, thanks for managing things on your own during my absence. :)
By the way, sorry for not reading Celta on Sunday. I'll have to get to it again next Sunday.
I am doing well, thank you. :) No worries! Things have been pretty quiet anyway. Oh, congratulations on your brother! That must be quite exciting. I’m the oldest in my family, so our first wedding will likely be my own, and that won’t be for a while. xD And good luck on the driving test as well!
Oh, no, don’t worry about it! Take your time. I appreciate your reading it in the first place. :)
ACK YES IT WAS AMAZING. I TOTALLY RECOMMEND IT. THE MUSIC AND THE ANIMATION! IT WAS ALL SO GOOD! (But then again, you know I’m a TLK fan, so I may be biased. xD)
That's wonderful to know! And thanks for the well wishes regarding my driver's test. I took it on Tuesday and passed by five points, so I'm excited! All we have to do know, I suppose, is purchase the license itself.
I'll be sure to pass your congratulation on to my brother today. I am rather excited. :)
Wow, I didn't expect your reception of the film to be so positive. XD In fact, I thought as a TLK fan you might not like it that much, as they probably changed a few things. (I know that's how I feel about The Hobbit films, which are good but not great, in my opinion.) I'm glad you liked it so much, though! I'll be sure to watch it at my first opportunity! Do you like it better than the original, or is it a tie? ;)
Oh, whoops! I guess I missed the part where you said you already took the test. xD I'm glad it went well!
Yeah, well, there were some things I didn't like about the film (e.g. some scenes seemed cut short; Rafiki in general was "eh"), but overall I really did like it. Mostly I'm just glad they decided to make some new TLK content, even if it was pretty much just a CGI remake of the original film. Yes, definitely watch it when you can! It's well worth one's time. ;)
Oof, that's tough. Honestly, I probably like the original better, but it's a close call. xD
Hi, Peony! I just wanted to thank you for subscribing to my personal blog! I just found out about it, as I haven't written any posts since last year. (Something which I'd like to get back to in the near future.) Anyway, thank you! ;)
What do you think of adding a "role" label to the character infobox? I was also thinking it might be nice to have some labels for some major social media sites, like Instagram, Facebook and Twitter on the person infobox.
Ooh, also would you please add "preceded by" and "followed by" labels to the score infobox? I figure it might prove to be helpful.
By the way, I've added Mr. Smith's signature to the article, but was unable to find a decent representation of Mr. Franzen's. I have also uploaded several PNG images from The Green Ember and Ember Falls for article purposes. Besides this, I've managed to find Melodies for the Mended Wood on YouTube, and have proceeded to add those videos to their article counterparts. :)
I know I am not active much. But I wanted to say that the wiki is looking great! I also realize this is kinda random but I kinda just wanted to tell you that. So keep up the good work, I know owning a wiki can be a lot of work and it takes time to keep doing a good job and I hope others will join as well
Aww, thank you so much! It really means a lot that you would take the time to say that! *hugs*
The wiki is doing fantastic thanks to our dedicated editors, you included! We’re also trying to reach out to other wikis right now to affiliate in the hopes of increasing traffic. Hopefully it’ll get busier! And don’t worry about your activity —- we’re just happy to have you here. :)
I could if you'd like spread the word. I would like to try and help as much as possible but frankly, I have never been good at that kinda stuff so... I might in the possible future but as for the summer, I might not be on due to personal issues. But I bid you good luck!
Hi, Peony: please tell me what you think of the image which I used to replace the double diamond edit thingy. I also have another image in mind, and if the torch image proves to be unsatisfactory, we'll try that one. :)
No kidding; there’s enough unexplained or unexplored topics in the series that I could probably come up with 20 questions or more. He did say he might expand to more than one, and of course we’ll hopefully get answers from future books.
Hello Kilmarnock, Peony. Sorry for not making a single appearance last week... life has inconveniently conspired against me to do everything within its power to mess up my normal schedule, so it's been rather hectic over here. Thanks for taking care of things while I've been gone!
By the way, Peony, Gan and Shambler was exactly what I was going to ask him about! ;)
Well, finally got the first set of responses to S.D. Smith's "Ask Sam"; sadly, nothing about Gann and Shambler and nothing new lore wise:
Where do you gather your inspiration to write such amazing tales that propel the reader on an emotional rollercoaster that is beyond compare? My place beside you, my blood for yours, Brandon
Thanks for that understated question, Brandon. ;) I love what Jack London said about inspiration. “You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club.” I just write. I write whether I feel like it or not (when I’m bravest). I can’t always trace the sources of my inspiration with much accuracy. I don’t think about it that much. Tolkien talked about tales bubbling up “from the leaf mold of the mind.” They grow from places we wouldn’t have expected, and we can’t control it. I think the best thing we can do is read good books, "living" in truthful books full of light and beauty, and write the best, most honest stories we can.
My question is this: What happened on Golden Coast? We've gotten vague references throughout the series' but nothing definite. From Catie
Great question. Wouldn’t it be cool if that were a book series someday? ;)
Here's my question: Which of your Green Ember characters do you find most interesting? What about most amusing? Most annoying? Alayna
Thank you, Alayna! Most interesting? I think Helmer is interesting, because I’m never quite sure what he’s going to do. Most amusing? Probably Doctor Zeiger, or Eefaw Potter. Both goofy, lovable fellows. Most annoying? Well, Picket in book one is annoying, and Tameth Seer is no picnic. I’m not sure. I don’t usually feel annoyed by them. I feel strong anger towards Garten, Falcowit, Daggler, Vitton, and Morbin, of course. Great question!
Yes, very annoying indeed. But that's the great thing about book 1; Picket goes from being an annoying little snot to one of the most heroic characters in the series, though admittedly he's still got some issues in book 2.
Hmm... I'm not sure. Now that I've tried it, I'm thinking that green may not go well with our Whitson graphic. Perhaps instead of changing our colors with the seasons we should change our colors to correspond with the main coloring of the newest book?
I could honestly do whatever. We could leave the colors as they are for a few more weeks, maybe, just for the book's release's sake, or we could go ahead and just change everything back, including the header. *shrug* Either one is fine with me.
Lol, I just remembered that I'd forgotten to reply to your answer! I did find the code in MediaWiki:ImportJS, but I found that I couldn't alter the feature in any way since JS is utterly foreign to me. XD
Also, I found that no "firefly effect" with which I can replace the snow effect exists. Unfortunately.
