Hello friends of a feather!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far and if you aren’t then I hope you do. Anyway, I was recently tagged by the awesome Merie for the Awesome Blogger Award.
The rules written in my own words: (Like usual)
Thank the person who tagged you, (Thank you again Merie!) tag your post with #awesomebloggeraward, answer the provided question, nominate some people, think up 10 or more questions for them.
What is your favorite fairy tale?
That’s super hard since I don’t have a favorite fairytale. But I’d probably have to say Rapunzel, Beauty and the Beast, or Rumpledkiltskin.
Rapunzel because I love both Tangled and Cress. Beauty and the Beast because Belle loves the read and have you seen the immense library in the Beast’s castle? And Rumpledkiltskin because I would always read it at the doctor’s office when I was younger. It was the favorite fairytale in the book for me to read, so it just stayed by my side.
Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry?
Strawberry everyday anyday.
What quote is most applicable to your life?
When I saw this for the first time, it really stuck with me. I was never really aware of all the mean things I said, even when I thought I was just joking. But think about it.
If you walked around the world with mean things on your skin, how would people view you. THey wouldn’t think you were beautiful with nasty words tattooed on you. But if you had uplifting words that covered you from head to toe, people would stop and compliment you.
So now I try everyday to spread joy with my words. I’m still human, I still mess up and say nasty things, but at least I’m making a conscious effort to change.
What is your least favorite book genre and why?
Probably horror or chick-lit. Horror because I couldn’t handle it. My mind paints creative pictures when I’m reading, so if I read a horror book, my brain would be tainted for life. And chick-lit because it’s so fake. While I don’t mind a cute romance as a subplot,
What is your second favorite color?
That’s really hard, but I have to say a maroon burgundy color. I just like the look of it.
Is there anywhere on Earth that you would leap at a chance to visit (and of course, where would it be)?
I have to say the Midwest for several reasons. 1) I have family that lives there who I never see, 2) I could meet my best friend, 3) I could go to Chicago and eat deep-dish pizza
Favorite kinds of cultural food (Chinese, Italian, American, etc.) and why?
I’m not a big fan of cultural foods and hardly eat anything besides chicken, crackers, or fruits. Maybe Italian because of pasta, pizza, and bread. Does that count?
What do you love most about your country’s culture/folklore?
I had to look up Canadian folklore and was led to websites full of Native American legends and tales. Most of them sounded a bit scary such as, The Children With One Eye, The Girl Who Always Cried, or The Tobacco Fairy From The Blue Hills.
We also have a lot of mythical creatures which I like. Though they are quiet scary and sometimes silly.
But I really like the culture of Canada. Everyone is so friendly and kind and there is so much aceppentence in the community. It’s very diverse and different and we embrace all parts of each other’s character.
A book in a series/by an author you love that disappointed you?
Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan. Enough said from me.
Favorite classic art piece (book, movie, painting, etc.)?
I really like this painting, The Great Wave, by Hokusai. I just like the look of it, the colors, and the way he painted it.
That’s all the questions for today, which means I have to think up my own.
- What was the last dream you had?
- How many pets have you previously owned?
- What’s your least favorite food?
- If you had to pick an age to be for the rest of your life, what age would it be?
- Where would you like to go on vacation?
- What does your dream room look like?
- Hit shuffle on your playlist and name the first song that plays
- What instruments do you play, if any?
- What was one hobby that you had when you were younger, but you no longer pursue?
- What is 3 words that describe your lifestyle?
The Heroes of Legends Tag
I was tagged by Cholë for this tag and I’m super excited for it.
Thank the person who tagged you (Thank you Cholë!), answer the questions, it’d be nice if you included photos of your characters (Opens Pinterest). You must use your own characters and not any fairy tale characters. Make sure you know what to do and let the professionals hand this. Link it back to Merie so she can read this, and only tag writers because if you don’t it’ll be hard for them.
Who is most likely to be turned into a frog (and then thrown against the wall because of additional obnoxiousness)?
Phoebe for sure. She’s always getting under people’s skin, so she’d for sure be thrown against a wall for obnoxiousness.
Who could probably persuade a man – sent to kill them on pain of death – not to kill them, through charisma or charm alone (or manipulation, whichever way you take it)?
Probably Asher since he’s super persuasive. And if it didn’t work, Asher would beat him up.
Who is that kind of person who waves around a weapon (or other sharp pointy object) everywhere they go, regardless of their skill in handling it (which is to say, probably quite doubtful)?
Micah. When I read this question, she was the first to pop into my head.
Micah is confident of herself and what she can do- most of the time. But when it comes to weapons, she’s hopeless. But that doesn’t stop her from feeling like a total kick-butt book character in the books she reads. Hand her a sharp object, you’ll have to pry it out of her hands later.
Who can endure the most pain with a stoic, completely neutral face (maybe s/he’s dancing)?
Jackson Grey. He is a emotionless man and would despise himself if people knew what he was truly feeling. According to him, any emotion you show is a sign you’re still human.
Who is most likely to pull off a Hua Mulan and face a trial as one of the opposite gender if need arises?
The only character I have that I can see doing that is Micah again. She’d go to great lengths to protect people, even pretending to be a guy. Also, she’s quite the tomboy so it’d be pretty believable.
Who would be quickest to obey a talking cat when it demands them to buy it a pair of boots?
Brooke. She do anything for anybody if they ask. Unless it’s something bad. But if there is a poor cat asking for a pair of boots, she’d first question him.
If he gave a good enough answer to satisfy her, he’ll walk away with a new pair of leather boots.
Who is willing to do anything– absolutely anything– in order to rescue someone s/he loves (includes killing innocent foxes and asking the moon for help)?
Micah or Brooke. They are both very loyal and value strong friendships. Though I can’t see Brooke killing any foxes, she would ask the moon for help.
Micah would feel bad about killing a fox, but I could see her doing it anyway. Anything to protect friends and family, right?
Who seems to stubbornly not die no matter what you put them through?
Asher. I give him a sad and traumatized backstory and he comes back stronger then ever. He gets beaten up by a girl and he doesn’t back down after. Asher is tossed around, forgotten, and trampled by many people, yet he refuses to die.
Who is the terrifyingly malicious, extra-megalomaniacal, wildly unpredictable Queen of Hearts/Bluebeard villain (the kind that makes you want to run and hide)?
Phoebe for sure. While she isn’t really a villain, Phoebe is not the nicest girl around. Everyone wants to be her friend just because it’s better to be friends with her then to be enemies.
She’s basically my queen bee at school who just hates Micah and tries everything to make life in high school more difficult than it should.
Who is the terrifyingly placid, blood-freezingly calm, monotone-voiced villain that is Every Fairytale Villain in History Incarnate (the kind that makes you want to run and hide)?
If you personally knew everything Jackson plans and schemes, you’d be terrified for your life. He thinks everything out to the itty-bitty details. You can’t take him by surprise, nor can you plan in secret without him finding out.
Jackson has no emotions whatsoever and feels no guilt for the evil deeds he does. (Which is a handful) He doesn’t care what you think of him- unless you think he’s stupid or something. Then he’ll hurt you. Jackson loves the taste of fear and feeds on your anxiety. In sum, he’s a man you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley at 2 in the morning.
And that is all the questions I was given to answer. Honestly, I had so much fun answering them and wouldn’t want to choose just a few people to do it. So if you want to answer the questions from the Heroes of Legends tag, feel free to tell me and I’ll put your name up there.
I have nothing else to say except, have a great summer!
