    So, now that season 6 has aired, Race to the Edge is finished! I'm so sad that it's come to an end but the final season was amazing and full of so many good things!!! So much tied into the second movie too, which was really satisfying. I won't talk about much more because spoilers, but if you've seen it, feel free to jump in and discuss! I'll just be here, waiting patiently...

  12. Last week
  13. The 100

    I'm super excited for the release date actually because it means I'll be done with school (almost) so I can actually watch it when it airs!!! But here's my thoughts and ~predictions for season 5: So yeah woot here comes season 5!! I've been super into fic lately, and a lot of the ones I've been reading are season 5 speculation and they're honestly pretty good so I'm hoping the actual stuff is even better!
  14. Make-up

    Idk if i'm vain but since I was seventeen I've really struggled with confidence and people seeing my face, so makeup really helps! It also mixes in with my love for history, because i get to try looks from the 20s or 60s! I'm not very good, and my eyebrows are too light and sparse to look good - but i enjoy doing it. My favourite part is eyeshadow - especially when I do it dramatic....which is most of the time. I don't really do a natural look...the most natural I go is when I don't contour, or if my highlight is minimal (i love highlight...i have powder, cream, and liquid versions - it all depends on what mood im in when i use them) But yeah, im all about pigmented pallettes, and kylie LIP KITS!!! Sometimes I wish I could go into public more without makeup on buuuut makeup's too much fun!
  15. just.a.willow.tree's reviews

    @Tecla Sunrise I'll definitely be on this as soon as I can, but just know that due to all the Secret Cupid things going on, I might take a while.

    Reviewed Untrue, untrue (loved it!)
  18. Music

    music is everything!! Honestly when I was a kid I used to love 60s and 80s music, everyone always says the first album they bought is one of an artist from their childhood....NOT ME. At eight I bought an album called "Leaders of the Pack: The Very Best of the 60s Girls" - it has The Shangri-Las, Aretha Franklin, Petula Clark and loads more that I grew up with. I still have it today, though it skips the last 3 songs....it's old and scratched, but I'm sentimental! My favourites were/are Walking Back To Happiness, Shout, Downtown, Bobbi's Girl, and My Boy Lollipop - my sister hates when I play it in the car. Right now I'm really loving Janis Joplin, her lyrics are so passionate- and when she talks in them too, she really shows the power of words. I write best to her, and to Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks, Carole King, and a lot of 60s/70s music. My favourite artist ofc is Judy Garland, but I get too distracted Jazz also helps me write angst or heartbreak - especially Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis Jr are a few that I really love. I like musical theatre soundtracks too (like Dreamgirls, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Cabaret, Gypsy, and Flora the Red Menace are my faves) but they're just more for me - and not for inspiration...unless there's a character I'm working on that likes MT or is similar to one of the characters.
  19. Rare Pairs

    Dropping off a gift from Wanheda, one of the Secret Cupids! Title: Maybe This Time Author: dreamgazer220Link(s): HPFTLength / Completed: 2016 words/CompletedPairing: Roxanne Weasley/Scorpius MalfoyGenre(s): Angst, RomanceSummary: Reasons for recommending: For all of the Next Gen I have read, I never really considered this pairing, but Jill makes it so believable. The chemistry between the two is crazy evident and as much as you don't really want Scorpius to be leaving Rose, you can't help but root for Roxanne and Scorpius to end up together.
  20. Sirius Black/Marlene McKinnon

    Just dropping a gift from Blue, one of the Secret Cupids, in here! Title: Cruel Inheritance Author: MuggleMaybe Link: Click (m) Length / Completed: 1773 / Yes Era: Marauders Genre(s): Angst Character(s): Sirius Black, Marlene McKinnon Additional Pairings: Summary: Sirius Black has betrayed a friend, endangered an enemy, angered the girl he fancies and, most terrible of all, lived up to his name. Reason for Recommendation: Renee beautifully tells the aftermath of Remus/Snape Werewolf incident through Sirius' eyes. This piece wonderfully captures his emotions in a raw way while exploring the impact on his relationship with Marlene. It's so well written and the last line delivers such an emotional punch too!

  28. StarFeather's OF Review

    I'm happy to see you again, Kat. Welcome back. Two slots are open.
  29. Snamione (Severus/Hermione)

    Oh, you not even start to write there if you are not ready for annoying, angsty, slow-slow-slow burn. Or if you go deep into the future where he went through some healing and personality change (which would be writing Snape as ooc - at least on some level). I tried that, it works but not to my absolute satisfaction. With them... I see Hermione as assertive one - so it is basically game of wearing his stubbornness down. The story I'm writing now 150+K words, 76 chapters and they are still rationalising every speck of attraction, if they (especially him) get even a whiff of it - it is running in opposite direction kicking and screaming. I do have to admit that in this story romance is in the background.
