Re: Rumplestiltskin - Creative Task

Ever since we both found out, that we are expecting our son, we spent many an hour, thinking about names a ton. Maybe Nicholas for his granddad, or Henry after his mother’s cousin, but that would make the others mad that we’d pick one name from suggestions dozen. After lot of opinions and much discu...

Re: The Frog Prince - Creative Task

I imagine that the prince would be stereotypically handsome, like with strong face features and chiseled jawline. His hair would be brown, slightly curly, but he would wear it slicked back, like we often see in old fairy tales. I think the prince’s eyes would also be brown and kind to match his pers...

Re: Similar Characters/Scenes in books and plays/screenplays

I am a big fan of Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. So much so that I rarely pick any other large detective book collections, but prefer to stick to single book novels. However, after I watched the movie (and started on the TV show), I decided to venture into Agatha Christie’s Hercu...

Background Noise

I find that I dislike being in the quiet, especially if I am home alone. I much prefer if there is something in the background that is giving off some noise, either music or most of the time in my case, TV shows. When I am busy doing something, either that is household chores, cooking, or even doing...

Re: Film/TV Adaptations

Since I am a big fan of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, I decided to check out some other books by Douglas Adams. First one of these has been Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. The biggest reason to start with it has been that, in 2016, the first of two seasons of its TV adaptation has come ...

Re: Little Red Riding Hood - Creative Task

Apple strudel. All of the apple strudels. My SO’s grandmother makes a sinfully good one and ever since I expressed my love of it, I always get extra at family gatherings, extra to send home and sometimes, she makes it just because and visits so she can give it to me. Then, chocolate. Specifically, c...

Re: Goldilocks and the Three Bears - Creative Task

It was not a big spot of trouble or tragedy that hit the bears, they simply forgot about the time! The little bear wanted to go for a swim in the nearby river, because it was such a nice day out, so they decided to go and do that. They spent several hours frolicking about the river banks, splashing ...

Re: Sleeping Beauty - Creative Task

As some had already written, I also have trouble recollecting the dreams unless they are tied to specific memories. However, I do faintly recall a dream that happened a week or so ago. I was in a classroom, which I later found out was Languages 101, one I am also taking this term. There were other s...

Re: Rapunzel - Creative Task

My favorite thing ever is what we, in my family, call Sorrow Sundae. Whenever my cousin or I were sad or sick, our mothers made us this dessert. Nowadays, I also make it whenever it is too hot out and I need to cool down, but the name stuck. Ingredients are pretty straightforward. Your favorite ice-...

Re: Cinderella - Creative Task

The fish looks similarly to a Siamese fighting fish, with long flowing fins. It is enormous, the size of a ten-year-old child, its fins dragging several feet behind it. Just one color cannot describe it as the scales are ever changing in the spectrum of a rainbow. The fins are decorated with the flo...

Re: Snow White - Creative Task

The band of the magic ring is rather simple, a thick dark silver band with pale silver lines weaving throughout it. It has etchings inside the band, which represent runes of the area in which it was made. Together, the runes represent a ritual, or rather a spell that binds the ring to the person wea...

April – The Quibbler

The Quibbler is published and edited by Xenophilius Lovegood and is marketed as The Wizarding World’s Alternative Voice. It is not your usual newspaper or magazine, as it mainly focuses on conspiracy theories and imaginary creatures, which is why it is considered quite rubbish. However, The Quibble...
