Hey Tom! :D In the beginning, you receive a logic puzzle you need to solve. The 5 main clues are hidden in squares throughout the grid, and you find them by either stumbling upon them, or by answering trivia questions and being given the location to the next clue. As for the grid, you need to have o...

I'd LOVE it if they became movies, or even a tv series. I think that could work brilliantly, with the proper casting. I can't definitively say that I have a favourite part - I did enjoy the shocking reveal at the end of Gone, regarding Little Pete and the FAYZ (of which I will not elaborate on, so a...

I voted Beauty and the Beast, but it's not necessarily the greatest. >> It was just the very first movie I saw in the cinema. I was...five years old, I think. Anyway, I honestly could not say which Disney animated film is the best. But IMO, their early works were the true masterpieces. BatB, The Lit...

I picked up the first two books (Gone & Hunger) and read them both in one night. Without giving the plot away, it's probably what the plot of Lord of the Flies would have been if the kids had had X-Men like abilites. Although it's shelved under YA lit, it's not for the sensitive reader. Very dark an...

Ugh, I have been wanting to do NaNoWriMo for years! D: I just never seem to have the time. Maybe I'll attempt this year. It depends on how packed my schedule becomes. I think it's interesting so many write original works for it. Just my opinion, but I wouldn't ever put something original online that...

Jacob, hmm. I liked him best in the first and last book. The first because we saw so little of him and didn't have to dwell on his whingy side :lol: , the last because he was finally starting to act mature. Now, I get that people find Jakey more believable because he "acts his age", but for me, boys...

I agree with Chloe - Renesmee and Hermione are not even up for comparison; Hermione, although difficult to carry and pronounce, is a legitimate name. It was in The Winter's Tale , a Shakespeare play, which was written more than 300 years ago! Hermione was also the name of the daughter of Menelaus an...

Oh, what a clever idea! I'd always told my friends to read some books up to a certain point, but it never occurred to me to name the concept.

Well, I've pretty much vented my spleen about BD in IRC with Zenix, so I'll just say this: RENESMEE? NESSIE ?! Use your brain, Bella dear: Name smushes and made-up names are NOT yewneek or cute, they're hideous. They're not real names. Naming a child "Apple" doesn't make it a name - legit names have...

Glad for this topic, as mine's a bit of a trick.

Selwyn is simple: SEHL-win.

Megaera is more difficult: mah-GEHR-ah.

If someone can't pronounce Meg, my nickname, I'll throw my grammar books down the toilet, á la Ginny Weasley. ;)

Megaera is, of course, one of the Furies (Erinyes) of Greek mythology. I chose it because there is a character in the HP books called Alecto and she is another of the Furies. Megaera also sounds like a good, pureblooded name, which is what my HOL character is supposed to be. ;) Selwyn is from the H...

My story is relatively straightforward. When I was 11, I was desperate for well-written, engaging and challenging books to read; unfortunately, at the time, most books with those specifications were for adults and it bothered my dad to see me reading "grown-up" books.
