  • lauryn on December 4th, 2009 - 6:10pm


    Odyssey has the best shows & videos. Beside a show was talking about a boy that was deaf & people where he usually live teased. I was so sad.

  • celeste on March 17th, 2010 - 12:18am


    Mcgee and me were horible i hated them they were bad animation boring and not a lot of fun on the other hand the last change detectives were great i wacthed them over and over and listened to them i loved them no matter how scary keep up the good work

  • AIO lover on May 5th, 2010 - 3:30pm


    I have five aio videos and 1 or 2 McGee and Me. My 15 year old brother and 7 year old brother love watching them. They are very fun and me and my 7 year old brother get up every Saturday at 7:00am to watch.

  • odysseyfan#1 on June 1st, 2010 - 5:26pm


    I don’t like the odyssey videos very much… I know they tried to put in a lot of effort to make good videos, but You can’t quite beat the audio series.

    I wish we could talk more about Jules like trivia questions but it is hard when she was only in one episode

  • Stormshadow on October 19th, 2013 - 8:33am


    @flyingrider I know that’s why it’s hard to have a Shona fan club and nobody’s answered the questions I posted so I might just disband it!

  • Flyingrider on October 21st, 2013 - 9:38am


    @STORMSHADOW i liked shonas acting i dont know if the judging was fair because no one i voted for won I really liked the get in the show theme song i think shona should come back i dont remember her video it has been a while

    that we are a part of the food chain and its leigh

  • Flyingrider on October 28th, 2013 - 1:31pm


    STORMSHADOW another spelling checker

  • stormshadow on October 28th, 2013 - 2:09pm


    what do you mean another spelling checker?

  • Naomi on October 29th, 2013 - 1:11am


    Hey everybody! Can I join the club??? 😀
    I’ve been talking about the fair judging of the Get in the Show contest with my brother and we both agree the judging wasn’t exactly fair.
    We listened to the on stage performance over and over and decided, as far as natural acting goes, Annaliese’s was best. (cont.)

  • Naomi on October 29th, 2013 - 1:14am


    (cont.) When they performed in alphabetical order, I think the first time through, people only listened for the episode.
    The second time through they noticed Anya’s “fairy tale story acting” ( 😀 sorry to any Anya-lovers out there)
    and when Shona’s came on, they noticed she was a better actor than Anya. Also she really punched an attitude… (cont.)

  • Naomi on October 29th, 2013 - 1:20am


    (cont.) and gave her character fire. The audience was perhaps a bit more roused by this and noticed her lively acting. When the time came to vote, the last impression of the contest was Shona and… she won!
    However, I believe if Annaliese had performed AFTER Shona, she could have won.
    The judging shouldn’t have been then, actually. 😛 It should have been later when they could really study who did the better job, over and over till they came to a fair conclusion… (cont.)

  • Flyingrider on October 29th, 2013 - 8:56am


    I didnt really pay attention to the acting but it really doesnt matter know. Shona does a goood job acting and God caused her to win so it was his plan. it was a big blessing to shona also! No offence.

    STORMSHADOW Whenever someone spells something on the main page that is wrong someone always checks it.

  • naomi on October 29th, 2013 - 10:59am


    (cont.) But Shona did have alot of stage presence unlike Annaliese who was a bit nervous and that also swayed the crowd’s decision.
    Im not complaining. Odyssey does the best they can. But i like acting and me and my brother make ameteur movies and audio drama for fun so i jitters me up when fairness in judging is questioned. 🙂

  • Flyingrider on October 29th, 2013 - 3:06pm


    this is the shona club!

  • stormshadow on October 29th, 2013 - 3:44pm


    NAOMI yeah maybe! i still think shona was the best what type of movies do you make?

  • naomi on October 30th, 2013 - 3:53am


    Flyingrider, yeah, you’ve got a good point. I thought about that too (that it was ultimately God’s plan)
    Shona seemed really thankful to God that she won and you could tell she would use her talents for Him. 🙂
    As to the ‘no offense,’ none taken. 😀
    Can we be posting pals?

  • naomi on October 30th, 2013 - 8:39am


    @Stormshadow, we make our own movies about about two kids and their goofy friend Barney. It’s mostly home life comedy and action. The last one was about a kidnapping with 6 characters and only 2 actors. (me and my brother played 3 people each 🙂 )
    We were really bad at first but i think we’ve gotten better over the years. We do some audio drama too from scripts in school. 😀

  • Flyingrider on October 30th, 2013 - 10:47am



  • stormshadow on October 30th, 2013 - 12:36pm


    naomi wow thats cool my brother and i tried but it did not work that well

  • naomi on October 31st, 2013 - 9:26am


    Well, you should have seen the first videos we made. They were ludicrous! :mrgreen: I was embarrassed to show them to my parents because the acting and plotlines were so phony.
    And could we be posting buddies? 🙂
    It looks like it’s only us 3 that are on here anyway. 😀

  • Flyingrider on October 31st, 2013 - 9:43am


    What was everyones favorite Jules scene?

  • naomi on November 2nd, 2013 - 2:03am


    @Flyingrider, We live in Norway as in Europe. 🙂
    I like horses too! Ive ridden them only once though. Do you have horses?

  • Flyingrider on November 4th, 2013 - 12:00pm


    NAOMI I cant believe that you can post from Norway! I mean that is sooo cool. I dont have horses but want one.

  • naomi on November 4th, 2013 - 2:45pm


    Have you ever been to Europe or Asia? Our odd little family is everywhere. Japan, Philippines, Norway, Spain, Canada, U.S., etc. We travel a lot. The funny thing is, we speak English as our first language! XD

  • naomi on November 4th, 2013 - 2:47pm


    Did you notice that Stormshadow left? I didn’t even get a chance to know her! (It was a ‘her’ right?)

  • Flyingrider on November 4th, 2013 - 4:06pm


    NAOMI i have never been out of country (usa) except canada. Why do you end your comments with XD and what does it stand 4? Oh stormshadow was a boy. He also said that he had an imposter too. So maybe????????????

  • stormshadow on November 4th, 2013 - 9:19pm


    umm I’m a BOY!!! thats cool that you have been to all those countrys i have not been ou of the U.S.A I’m staying i changed my mind.

  • naomi on November 5th, 2013 - 1:40pm


    Oh ‘XD’ is an emoticon. 😀 It’s a face with scrunched up eyes smiling big. What are your 3 favorite episodes in Odyssey?

  • stomrshadow on November 5th, 2013 - 2:05pm


    naomi flyingrider i am staying on here just so you know p.s XD is a face the D is the mouth and the X is the eyes 🙂

  • naomi on November 6th, 2013 - 12:55am


    @Stormshadow, sorry i didn’t mean to offend! 🙂
    I like doing this board thingy because it deosn’t take as much time when we’re posting only 3 of us together.

  • Flyingrider on November 6th, 2013 - 12:56pm



  • stormrshadow on November 6th, 2013 - 4:33pm

  • Flyingrider on November 8th, 2013 - 12:44pm


    STORMSHADOW have you ever heard of matt maher the music artist because one of his songs says ” i will be my brothers keeper so the whole world will know that your God alone”.

  • stormshadow on November 9th, 2013 - 9:42pm


    Don` t recognise the artist but I’ve heard the song

  • Flyingrider on November 11th, 2013 - 2:17pm

  • naomi on November 15th, 2013 - 5:37am


    @Stormshadow, I didn’t know how to delete anything. Like, right click and punch “delete”? ;D We had a clumpy Windows 98.

  • Flyingrider on November 16th, 2013 - 1:34pm


    NAOMI You can make up the clues but it would be hard for me to help. Can you type or do you just hit the keys?

  • naomi 98 on November 16th, 2013 - 2:12pm

  • stormshadow on November 26th, 2013 - 8:48am


    Flyingrider has been posting that she won’t be on for a while soo she probably won’t answer you so what do you do in Norway for thanksgiving???

  • Flyingrider on November 26th, 2013 - 9:45am

  • naomi 98 on November 27th, 2013 - 7:11am


    Yeah, alot of people haven’t been on lately cuz of Thanksgiving and all. Stormshadow, Norway doesn’t have TG as a national holiday, but we celebrate it the way Americans do anyway. Turkey!! 😀
    Did you guys hear that Prof. Miller was Kevin McCreary from the Ceiling Fan podcast? So cool cuz I’ve been working with him on a script for his podcast. 😀

  • naomi 98 on November 27th, 2013 - 8:34am

    Yeah, i can hardly believe it myself! We’re doing a Christmas Special so you might want to hear it if you’re allowed. I think I’ll be playing a part in it too! 😀

  • stormshadow on November 29th, 2013 - 9:03am

  • Naomi 98 on December 3rd, 2013 - 1:37pm


    Yeah, we can just talk on there, if you want. The Phil back story? I just go to the top right corner and click on “join the community.” Anywho, we’ll figure it out. 😀

  • stormshadow on May 13th, 2014 - 1:13pm


    Wow, 😯
    This was a long time ago.
    Just wow,
    I sure changed a lot since those days.
    Aaand I’m talking to myself.


  • odyssey on June 13th, 2014 - 12:46pm


    I have watched only the video Someone to Watch Over Me.

  • stormshadow on July 7th, 2014 - 7:21am


    So you were gonna check this right. I’ll be on TCF my parents said it was okay. ;P

  • Beak on July 11th, 2014 - 9:42am


    Hey! Yeah saw that. Where did you learn about Jonathan Park by the way?

  • stormshadow on July 11th, 2014 - 1:02pm


    Uh, I think I was fooling around looking for a new drama to listen to and I found it. My dad liked it, so we own all the albums, but I think they shut down vision forum be cuz… Well…
    But yeah, it’s pretty cool, I liked the ones with the FBI people the most. They were the most interesting, science and storywise.

  • stormshadow on July 11th, 2014 - 1:02pm



  • Beak on July 13th, 2014 - 10:53am


    Ah, I see. Too bad they shut down. We heard a Jonathan Park episode every weekend from an American online broadcast. They used to air Adventures in Odyssey too but quit it later.

  • Beak on July 13th, 2014 - 10:54am


    Hey you read Kevin’s post about us fans supporting the show?

  • stormshadow on July 15th, 2014 - 5:12pm


    Yeah… I really don’t think I have the money to do it. 🙁

    Yeah, I think it’s starting out with a new actor etc. Not sure. 😕

    -Stormy 😎

  • Beak on July 22nd, 2014 - 5:22am


    I wasn’t trying to say “You should donate!! They do so much for us!! Ahh!!!” or something haha
    Just wondering what you thought of it. I don’t have the money to donate to em either. 😛 But i figured i could ‘donate scripts’ at least. That makes some sense right? 😀

  • stormshadow on July 24th, 2014 - 6:22pm


    Lol. 😀
    Yeah, I think it’s good that they have a way to actually make money, with all the time they put into it, and such. I just don’t have the money. I’m saving for college. 😀 Yeah, It does make sense. 😀

    -Stormy 😎

  • Beak on July 28th, 2014 - 8:12am


    Wow, you saving for college already? What were ya, 12? That’s pretty early! Wish I could have started that early, but in our neighborhood it wasn’t common to have odd jobs and there really was no other way except working different things for Mom and Dad. Which college you thinking of? (optional haha)
    So like do you have a “job” of some kind?

  • Anonymous on August 19th, 2014 - 4:32am


    What does IBC stand for?

    And here was my guess: is it Dr. Blackgaard?!

  • Beak on August 19th, 2014 - 4:33am


    Ah yes that was my comment. Forgot the username. -Beak

  • stormshadow on August 19th, 2014 - 7:54am


    Indiana Bible College. Annd No. I was hoping so, but there really isn;t any old nemises. I would tell you more, but I dont wanna spoil anything.

  • Beak on August 19th, 2014 - 9:18am


    Okay super! I want to keep it a surprise too. 🙂 But i just HAD to know if it was Dr. Blackgaard come alive again– which would be absolutely cray cray. **pant**

  • stormshadow on August 20th, 2014 - 10:06am


    Ik. My theory before I heard the whole thing was wierd and crazy. And it had to do with Dr. Blackgaard. The Chairman, and a mysterious dude in a black hoodie. SO yeah. The albums great!

  • Beak on October 21st, 2014 - 7:48am


    Okay yeah, haha I’ve found out. This is pretty exciting actually!
    If you ever even see this Stormshadow…
    It’s been a while since I was on.

  • stormshadow on December 10th, 2014 - 12:15pm


    BEAK!!! You actually live!. Yeah. Whatsup? How’ve ya been. I’m kinda on the TCF message boards.

  • Anonymous on January 7th, 2015 - 9:01am


    Lo and behold! You remembered this page!! hahaha Heya! Yeah I’ve seen you on the boards. 🙂 Not too much going on. TCF is continuing and there’s lots of work to get done.
    Have you heard the latest episodes? or no?

  • stormshadow on February 10th, 2015 - 9:36am


    Ofc! I couldn’t forget it!!
    Sry for the late response btw. Yeah, I’m not on their mych anymore. I’m keeping up with TCF continuom tho. I’ve heard them up to date yea. I thought you did great on the Home Alone for Christmas thing. Didn’t you play Ethans mom, as well as write it?

  • Beak on July 16th, 2015 - 10:30am


    Dude…like do you still check back here? haha
    Sorry I left a comment here a few months ago.
    Looks like it didn’t come through. :S

  • Beak on July 16th, 2015 - 10:31am


    Yes I did! (write and play the role of Mrs. Daniel’s)
    😀 I was grateful for the opporunity!!

  • beak on August 11th, 2015 - 9:54am


    Wasn’t that fan-recreated scene in the latest podcast really cool? It was by Tracy Lyn Holland! 😀

  • beak on August 11th, 2015 - 9:55am


    She plays Rebecca Wesly in TCF :DDDDDDD

  • beak on August 11th, 2015 - 9:55am



  • stormshadow on August 13th, 2015 - 10:53am


    Sup hows life? Man this brings back memories.

  • Beak on August 14th, 2015 - 10:13am


    Indeed it does! There’s like a whole conversation there between me, you, and Flying Rider. Do you know where she is these days?

  • Beak on August 14th, 2015 - 10:17am


    Wow…how’s life? Toughy. I know this is a lame answer, but it’s been going fine! 😀 :S
    How’ve you been? Do you still actively follow the blog and comment on all the latest official podcasts? I’ve been out of the loop for a while.
    I don’t recognize any old “posting buddies.” (If they still do those (?)

  • Stormshadow on August 17th, 2015 - 10:51am


    Oh man. This was the Shona club… Man I was crushing on her back then… Lol. I was so young. And now I feel old.

    Yeah We still talk, I can get her back on here if you want!
    Just fine? Lol. Yeahz same old. Waiting for Kevin to make new episodes.. Etc. Not really as much as I used to. Everyones moved on with there life. :/ Theres like no one I knew back in the “Golden Days” That I know. *sigh* Its all newbies that dont stay on for very long. In the oldies its just You, Me, FlyGal, Destiny14,

  • Stormshadow on August 17th, 2015 - 10:51am


    Regollin, Darth Vader, and Dr. Dene

  • Stormshadow on August 17th, 2015 - 5:22pm


    Oh and you say Posting Buddies on the main page and ppl react like you used slang from the fifties. So i geuss whitsends outgrew posting buddies. 🙁

  • Beak on August 18th, 2015 - 10:58am


    Ah, I see. There’s a new generation, hey? 🙂
    Welp..dude I just realized we’ve been posting on this page for nearly two years! Wow. We’re old. haha

  • Beak on August 18th, 2015 - 11:02am


    Hey..pardon my insensitivity, but I can’t help noticing a difference in your writing style from back when we first were posting buddies, and now. Did something make you want to change?

  • Flyingrider on August 19th, 2015 - 8:07am


    I’m here!!! Wow I saw where I said I’d be back and uh I never came back. Lol what’s up? How’s life? I missed you podcast pals!

  • beak on August 19th, 2015 - 8:45am


    Sheltered isn’t so bad. As long as we’re aware that we are. hahaha
    Avoiding subtle bad influences isn’t the same as naivity, if you get what I mean. 🙂

    No no, I like you just as you are.
    I guess I was thinking back to a phase when I would feel like using street phrases and shortcuts were…idk would somehow communicate that I was sorta..”cool”? 😛 lol
    Nothing wrong with writing that way though. I still do occasionally, for the fun of it. But I used to go too far, sometimes sacrificing my…

  • beak on August 19th, 2015 - 8:55am


    (cont.) …real opinion and personality for the sake of standing out. heh 😛
    But foreal, proceed however you wish. 🙂 It would be stupid of me to think any worse of people for how they present themselves.

  • beak on August 19th, 2015 - 9:01am


    Long time no see! 🙂 How’ve you been?

    Hey btw, are either of you in the OAC???
    Have you heard album 59?

  • beak on August 19th, 2015 - 11:27am


    (cont.) …*sacrificing my real opinion and personality for the sake of standing out. heh 😛
    (I’m not saying that’s what you were doing. Not at all!)
    It makes no difference to me whatever style of writing you do. 😀 *high five*

  • stormshadow on August 19th, 2015 - 12:20pm


    Beak Yeah definetly wanna make sure I dont do that, like I said I’m fairly cynical and sarcastic, so my use of street slang, is more of a making fun type thing.

  • stormshadow on August 19th, 2015 - 12:21pm


    Okay maybe not so much cynical… I should look up the meaning of words before I say them… 😛

  • Beak on August 19th, 2015 - 1:50pm


    Oops posted it twice. XD I thought they hadn’t approved of the first continued comment.

    Hahaha dude I do the exact same thing- use a word and then look up the meaning afterwards only to find it isn’t what I meant at all! 😛
    Good for you! Yeah I get what you mean about being sorta sarcastic or poking fun at it that way. I tend to do the same, when I’m with people who understand anyways, so it doesn’t come off as mean or ‘cynical.’ lol

  • stormshadow on August 24th, 2015 - 6:30am


    Hey yeah, Sheltered is a good thing. 😀 as long as you know it exactly! 😛
    Yes I get exactly what you mean! I should boycott Disney! Jk. (But not really) XD

  • Flyingrider on August 25th, 2015 - 6:07am


    I’m pretty good Naomi! Life’s just been busy since I’ve been working 3 different jobs that are partime so yeah. Life’s been busy and actually I should be getting ready to go to one right now so I’ll write a long post later ok’s?

  • Flyingrider on August 25th, 2015 - 6:08am


    Hahah Stormshadow I noticed a difference as well. But it just shows you’re growing up and *starts crying*. Almost a teen… I can’t believe it…

  • Beak on September 7th, 2015 - 6:10am


    @Flyingrider wow 3 part-time jobs? What kind of jobs?

    @Stormshadow lol boycott Disney 😛 And HEY have you heard the new Tim and Steven ep? 😉

    Have either of you been in the OAC yet? 😀

  • Stormshadow on September 8th, 2015 - 7:39am



  • Beak on September 8th, 2015 - 8:58am


    I’ve posted comments here that don’t show up. Hmm…I’ve forgotten how it works/how long it takes for comments to be approved…
    Oh well, let’s hope it isn’t too difficult to endure a few double comments! 😀

  • stormsHADOW on September 9th, 2015 - 6:52am


    Yep. Pretty much. Lol. Yeah Im in OAC

  • stormshadow on September 15th, 2015 - 2:28pm


    Yeah boycott disney! I mean Star Wars Episode 7? Cause 6 wasn’t enough. And Mary Poppins 2??? WHAT ARE THEY THINKING!!

    But in the end… I could never boycott disney, even with all the subliminal, and y’know the monstrosity that mankind calls Frozen, Because I couldn’t mess they’re super hero movies which are epic!

  • Flyingrider on September 18th, 2015 - 5:53am


    @Beak- Whelp I have a job at a daycare which is now only if she needs me and then I help at my neighbors house and clean AND THEN I have to do some cleaning at a little shop next to Us. Along with like 8 hours of high school ( procrastination in between) I’ve been busy.

    @Shadow Boy DONT YOU DARE MESS WITH MY FROZEN! Ok sorry had to yell. We are watching the old version of Star Wars for my first time and it is ok I mean I’ll have to watch it again to get the picture of it. ( continued)

  • Flyingrider on September 18th, 2015 - 5:56am


    A guy I know wanted to go to 6 or 7 this December and since I said I’d never seen it he said he was making me come with him and another guy from our church. Antwo I haven’t consented yet enough to ask my parents and probably never wil lol

  • Stormshadow on September 18th, 2015 - 8:37am


    Ooooooooooohh. Laini’s going on a date! Haha!! 😀

    Yeah its 7 thats coming out.

  • Stormshadow on September 18th, 2015 - 8:40am

  • beak on September 19th, 2015 - 10:41am


    Haaha “date” 😀 So you name’s LAINI!!!?

    I’m glad you came back too Flyingrider!
    Er excuse me for my forgetfulness, but how old are you? (If you don’t mind saying, that is)

  • beak on September 19th, 2015 - 10:54am


    Oh and you guys we’re flying to visit my sister’s family in Canada. (Probably will already be there by the time this gets posted) So I probs won’t be posting for a while.
    But who knows, there might be wifi in Walmart or something haha.
    In case though, ta-ta for now! 😀

  • flyingrider on September 20th, 2015 - 2:24pm


    STORMSHADOWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why dont we forget that little bit of information i just gave you? Havent told anyone yet and then i had made a joke that he had to ask my dad cause i wasnt about to and then the conversation stopped lol. Oh whelp. Ok i thought t was 6 but homestly i had no idea! LOL

  • stormshadow on September 21st, 2015 - 3:01pm

  • thaboiproper on September 22nd, 2015 - 7:41am


    ooooh So close to the US of A! Niiice doh. And we’re going on a vaca so I won’t be on, Unless of course ‘There’s wifi in Walmart or something’

  • stormshadow on September 22nd, 2015 - 8:54am


    ThaBoiProper was me.
    Don’t ask.

  • Beak on November 7th, 2015 - 10:24am

    Haven’t been back in a while. What’s up with you guys??? 😀

    Hey Beak! #latestofthelateresponses

  • Beak on February 14th, 2016 - 11:20am


    Hey Stormshadow! #LatestOfTheLatestLaterResponses
    How are y’all? lol The three of us just come back every few months with “hey I haven’t been on in a while!”

  • flyingrider on February 22nd, 2016 - 9:13am


    Hhahhahahah ikr. How’s life? Mines been good. My mommy sortve grounded me though.. :,'(

  • stormshadow on February 23rd, 2016 - 10:03am


    Haha. Yeah. If our posts would get on. LOL.
    How’ve ya been? I’ve been pretty good.

  • Beak on March 29th, 2016 - 3:18am


    I’ve been doing pretty good too! 🙂 Hope yall had a great Easter!
    Maybe we should ask some questions to keep the ball rolling? 😀
    Each time you answer a question or two, you have to ask one to the rest. Should we see how that goes?

    Here’s mine: What foreign language do you speak, or would want to learn monst?
    Mine’s probably Spanish, since it’s easy and very like English in some ways. But I like accents too, like Australian and British. 😀

  • stormshadow on April 1st, 2016 - 9:11am


    Heyyyyyyyyy!!!! :DDDD

    Lol, It was aight. We had all our “weird” family over. xD (A HUGE animal rights activist etc.) But it was, Imean I’m not a big fan of holidays, things seem to crowded and us “kids” seem to be left in the background. 😉 Alright. I can get Laini(Flyingrider -seems so weird to say that name- can get back on here.) if you want. Alright, sooo um Probably Latin, the language of the smart people or whatever it is… xD) Yeah. Alright so my question: What’s your favorite

  • stormshadow on April 1st, 2016 - 9:15am


    (And I’m actually proud of myself- Only a two day gap between responses! Lets GO! lol.)

  • stormshadow on April 1st, 2016 - 12:53pm


    (Don’t know if the second half will get on but it was: What’s your favorite MovieNight? Also do you guys have April Fools in Australia? I haaattte it. Mainly because 1. I can never think of anything thats not weak. and 2. Everyone be lying and you don’t know whats true or not. xD)

  • Beak on April 3rd, 2016 - 1:13pm


    ^Maybe we can just number our comments

  • Beak on April 3rd, 2016 - 1:24pm


    when we need to, so we know if there’s part of it missing.
    So, your Q: I don’t know that i have a favorite. I like them all, especially if I’ve seen the movie.
    April’s Fools in Australia? Idk (I’m not from there, in case you somehow thought that. haha) But I don’t like all the lying and lame pranks either.
    So, my Q: Your hobbies?

  • Beak on April 3rd, 2016 - 1:32pm


    Oh and if you can get Flyingrider on, that’d be great!

    Btw, I read your comment on the other podcast page. I know it was a long time ago, but it wasn’t so bad. Although there were possibly other ways to address it, it was good that you spoke up about something that was bothering you. I don’t know that I would have done as much; it was admirable.

    Anyway, 😀 enough of that, it’s fun that we still comment here after all these years. (Coming up on three years! *gasp*)

  • stormshadow on April 4th, 2016 - 10:38am


    (2) Yeah, some of the stuff can be kinda funny, Like Why Gods Not Dead 2 is a cinematic masterpiece. That was pretty good. Lol. I know right… It’s like it’s so obviously obvious. xD Idk, I don’t think the way they referenced it was very bad… but Idk. Lol Haven’t thought about it in a while. I know tho.. It’s been almost four for me (this fall) It’s kinda crazy… Now I shy away from the main threads… The commenting sure has changed lol. Don’t get this obsession with 1,000

  • stormshadow on April 4th, 2016 - 10:43am


    (3) I just don’t get all the one word comments to try to reach that magical plateau of 1K I liked it more when we had 1000 comments with conversations not spam. But nuff said. lol.

    Ohboy… Hobbies… Well I enjoy playing some Video games, reading. (once I pay off my library fines *cringe*) Football(Playing and Watching) uuuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhh, hmmm Hanging with friends etc. Basically normal things for teens my age… lol.

  • stormshadow on April 4th, 2016 - 10:45am


    (4)Oh, and my question: What are YOUR hobbies? (Plaigarism at it’s finest) And what’s your favorite bands and groups (Doesn’t have to be specifically christian)

  • Beak on April 5th, 2016 - 4:33am


    K, right now I don’t see your 1rst comment. 😛

    I have yet to see the God’s Not Dead 2 review, but from the premise of the film, I don’t like the idea that we can prove God’s existence in a court or with man’s arguments. God is so big, and our understanding is so small that I find it demeaning to pretend we can prove His existence with human eloquence.
    Anyway, but that’s another topic, and something I still want to think and pray over.

  • Beak on April 5th, 2016 - 4:38am


    I hadn’t heard about this 1K comment rush. I’m not actively on any of the WhitsEnd comment sections right now, haven’t been in a while. Lots of new posters I’ll bet 😮

    You mentioned reading; what do you like to read?

  • Beak on April 5th, 2016 - 4:47am


    My hobbies are mostly art-related (but aren’t everybody’s in some way? lol)
    I write a little, draw a little, make sketch comedy videos with my brother, and do some voice acting (from a homemade “recording booth” in my closet. ha *facepalm*).
    Not too into sports or video games unless it’s for fun with a group of friends.
    I don’t listen to a lot of contemporary music though, so I don’t know what to answer there.
    My Q:(bonus q, what do you like to read?)& what do you want to be when u “grow up”?

  • stormshadow on April 6th, 2016 - 9:21am


    Yeah, I geuss it didn’t get posted. Yeah I agree, God’s way too big to be able to “prove” his existence in a court, you “prove” his existence when you go to church and see, and feel him. Yeah, I check up just to make sure none of my old friends don’t come back and I don’t realise it. I hardly post at all tho. Yehp, it’s all new posters, I don’t think I’ve seen a new face in over a yr.

    Yeahp. I used to draw more, but I don’t do much anymore, I’m alright for not practicing, like EVER.

  • stormshadow on April 6th, 2016 - 9:24am


    Lol, haha, well it’s better than I do, xD Do you still do work on the CelingFan? Yeah, a game thats really fun with a big group is GaGa Ball, you have a big octagon (we made it out of tables) and than you have a kickball, and the goal is to get everyone out without it touching below your waist, and if it goes below your waist your out, and have to wait for next game. It’s really fun espec when it’s super crowded.

    Ah. I get you.

    Um well pretty much anything I can get my hands on. Recently I

  • stormshadow on April 6th, 2016 - 9:26am


    Read the Maze Runner Trilogy but that’s about the peak of violence in books I’ll read.

    (O just realised i forgot to number my comments this is 3)

    And now I’m reading the prequel to those books. I enjoy the story of it, and really want to watch the movies, I kinda wanted to watch Divergent, but Kevin ruined it for me. xD

    But I like more Action, Adventure stuff, some Dystopian things like that. One of my favorite series’s is The Rule of Thre3 it’s a really well done trilogy and I’m enjoying it

  • stormshadow on April 8th, 2016 - 9:16am


    Forgot to ask a question… (I return the questions you asked me) aand, what is your dream job?

  • Beak on April 8th, 2016 - 10:40am


    No I don’t work on the ceiling fan anymore. 😛

    Hm, never heard of the Maze Runner Trilogy, but I might check it out if you recommend them. I typically read the classics, writings of Austen, Brontë, Alcott, O. Henry, Hawthorne, things like that.
    ..which may sound boring and dull, haha, but it’s what I can get my hands on most easily.

    Lol CEO of Apple, yeah perfect. 😀

  • Beak on April 8th, 2016 - 10:53am


    My dream job…well, definitely something in media production. I currently have a part-time job doing some voice over/audiobook narrating, but I would love having it as a *full-time* job.
    So, not as fancy as running Apple, but fitting for a kid like me nonetheless. haha

    And my Qs:
    1, what kind of job are you getting next winter?
    2, what is something you’re talented in doing? (can be anything, or multiple things)

  • Beak on April 8th, 2016 - 10:54am


    Also, yay that Flyingrider is coming back! 😀

  • stormshadow on April 8th, 2016 - 11:36am


    Ah. It’s pretty good there can be some more violent scenes in it, but overall it’s pretty good- the second book has a bit of a love triangle, and the ending of the last book made me come close to crying. Haha. I really enjoyed it. Another trilogy thats good is the Mortality Doctrine series, it’s a little bit less violent but also made me want to cry by the time I was done. xD Ahh. Yeahh I don’t know who any of those people are, wait Jane Austen? and I’ve heard the name Hawthorne. Lol.

  • stormshadow on April 8th, 2016 - 11:40am


    (1)Yeah, Media Production is something most of my friends like, but it’s not something that really strikes me as something I’d enjoy doing for the rest of my life. I really enjoy writing stories and such, and have a ton of ideas but realistically only a few writers really make back their investment, so I’d have to have some sort of job on the side. I honestly don’t know… Haha. I do have a little bit of time tho.

    Erm I don’t know I’ve been looking around but there’s like ten options rn.

  • stormshadow on April 8th, 2016 - 11:47am


    We live in a pretty tiny town- my options straight up when I turn 14 are , Burger King, McDonalds, Culvers, Target, Walmart(That’s a joke, I;m not working at walmart. xD), Dairy Queen, Kesslers, (A local grocery store) and that’s about it… 🙂 So yeah. I don’t know yet.

    Um as I said last post I’ve been told I’m really creative with writing, and such; I don’t really think so but I don’t know.

  • flyingrider on April 10th, 2016 - 12:35pm


    Hey guys! Well umm since I cant answer all these questions rn, Imma just go with the last few. *cant find last few* OH WELL IM STARTING OVER NOW
    17)What is your favorite junk food
    23)Reason you like homeschooling/public schooling?

  • Beak on April 11th, 2016 - 9:20am


    Yep, Jane Austen. Who wrote the famed Pride & Prejudice.
    I’m sure you’re familiar with the *works* of most of those authors, though their names may be forgotten. 😀
    You’ve probably heard of “Little Women” or “The Gift of the Magi” (aka “Gifts for Madge and Guy” – AIO’s adaption)? Written by Louisa May Alcott and O. Henry, respectively.

    Anyway, sometimes those old dusty tomes require patience to get through a reading — which is why I like listening audiobooks instead! 🙂

  • Beak on April 11th, 2016 - 9:23am


    You write? That’s cool, I really wish I was good at writing but good ideas come on and off, which is frustrating sometimes.
    Please tell me you get writer’s block too!!!!!???

    So right now I see only three comments from you and I don’t know if a comment with your question got dropped off or if you forgot to ask one (and no worries if that’s the case 😀 ) but I suppose I shall have to ask myself a question for you!

  • Beak on April 11th, 2016 - 9:30am


    Stormshadow-“So, Beak–nice username, btw–do you prefer coffee or tea?”

    Beak-“TEA of course. Coffee’s gross.”

    Stormshadow-“I disagree. What is your favorite animal?”

    Beak-“Cats because they’re cute, fluffy, and you don’t need to walk them like dogs.”

    Stormshadow-“So cats are for lazy people. Would you rather go skiing or swimming?”

    Beak-“Toughy. I’ve gone skiing enough in my life to wish I lived somewhere where I could swim. I can’t swim very well though.

    Thank you for the questions!;D

  • stormshadow on April 11th, 2016 - 4:34pm


    I actually read like that whole book! Woe is me for I am unclean. CD not exactly normal reading material for ppl of my gender and age. I rue the dat I found out about Homeschool book reports… Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Sense and sensibility, little men, little women, five little peppers series later…. yep. My childhood was lovely. Haha.Tis what happens when your a sheltered seven year old who loves to read. You get the classics or you get nothing.. so I know quite a lot more about classical

    Writing than you may have thought! I’ve read almost at least one book from all the classical authors out there! #CLASSICALSECTIONATTHELIBRARY Lol. I don’t regret it Thom especially for an aspiring writer its great to read a broad range and see those who jave done it before you and had major success. 🙂 yea they do. Really prepares you to read the King James Version of the bible. Lol. Have you read the Lord of the Rings, the Hobbits, and the Narnia series (s?) They’re by J.R.R Tolkien and C. S.

  • stormshadow on April 11th, 2016 - 4:41pm


    Lewis respectively (I’m gonna be using that word a lot. It makes you sound like a genius) :D) as I’m sure you already know. XD. A bit. A while back I wrote a 300 word chapter for something I was starting but than life got in the way. (Life = Writers Block which = bingeing video games cuz your going crazy just sitting there at your computer which = getting nothing done) there ya go. A complex equation by yours truly. Rn im really itching to start writing about but trying to figure out that one

  • stormshadow on April 11th, 2016 - 4:48pm


    Perfect topic that’s never been done. Spoiler Alert: Its pretty hard. Meanwhile im juggling learning guitar, struggling with math and science, and general life. Gotta love getting older. -_- yes yes I do. Haha. As far as I know if you DON’T get writers block your not writing hard enuff.

    Mann I always forget. Lol. Not used to this kinda format for chatting. I really like it tho. Keeps our threads goin.

    Yehp. Label me dead. Of laughter. Is that what I sound like? XD you got me down tho! 🙂

    HI FLYINGRIDER! Welcome back 😀
    Idk if you wanna do the same, but we’re numbering our comments so the others know if any are missing. 🙂
    So to answer your Q’s…
    Fav junk food: pizza and french fries
    Great question about public/home schooling!
    I like homeschooling because it’s flexibly and you can tailor your education to fit you personally.
    On the other hand, public/private schoolers get built-in social experience; which some homeschoolers (myself included lol) would benefit from.

  • stormshadow on April 12th, 2016 - 8:20am


    Alright, so in answer to (“My Own”) your questions, I’d much rather have coffee unless we are talking sweet tea, I’d probably rather have a dog, they’re more playful and fun,and walking them would be good exercise, and I’ve never been waterskiing so I don’t know.

    FlyingRider: Haha that’s fine. Wait what do the 17 and 23 mean? In answer: Ermm Mountain Dew Dewshine at this point in time. And for your second I don’t especially like either, I’ve never been public schooled, tho there have been

  • stormshadow on April 12th, 2016 - 8:21am


    Times I have BADLY wanted to be public schooled, but I don’t really anymore since it seems like Public Schools nowadays are just pushing an Antichristian beliefs, and I don’t wanna be a part of that. 🙂 Also Common Core Math. No thank you!

    My questions:

    What is your favorite Audio Drama/Audio book you’ve ever heard?

    What is your favorite time of the year?

  • stormshadow on April 12th, 2016 - 8:23am


    Oh btw, in a month or so if you guys are interested
    I may have like my first chapter of a new story I’ll try to post it on here if the Blog Moderators let it get on. It will be called “Freedom” and be like a Historical Fic, Sci Fi, Action & Adventure type thing. I need to do a lot of research on it so it may take me a while

  • stormshadow on April 12th, 2016 - 9:16pm


    Wow I talk too much. Lol.

  • Beak on April 14th, 2016 - 12:12pm


    Oh you’re gonna wish you hadn’t read (or mentioned) Pride and Prejudice! (Or as the fandom likes to call it, P&P) IT’S MY FAVORITE BOOK.
    Right now at least, two years running. I’ll probably talk your ear off about it.
    First of all, it’s not a romance. “Oh, shocking! Fetch the smelling salts!” (A little Mrs. Bennet for ya)
    In my opinion, it’s a book about *relationships* (not romance. big difference) and human character. GAHH there’s just so much in it when you’ve thoroughly understood it all!

  • Beak on April 14th, 2016 - 12:18pm


    And it IS rather idealistic (good characters end up happy, bad characters get what they deserve), as well as problematic in some ways, I’ll admit. (Mrs. Bennet and Lydia are never ‘redeemed’ as characters. Lizzie and Darcy never come to good terms with them. They just stay away from them and, it seems, never face the issues.)
    But just look at that brilliant piece of art! Austen draws in the audience so much that you’re actually on Lizzie’s side, even when she’s wrong!

  • Beak on April 14th, 2016 - 12:26pm


    Now THAT’S good storytelling, when your audience is fully on the protagonists side, no matter what, from when they make a mistake to when they learn from it.
    Also, I love Austen’s use of satire.
    And Darcy isn’t what most people think. At the beginning he’s described as a stuck-up, disagreeable man; but most people forget, it’s the NARRATOR that saying all this. The narrator in this case isn’t omnipresent; in other words, when it says Mr. Darcy is rude and distant, (con.t)

  • Beak on April 14th, 2016 - 12:28pm


    the narrator is reflecting what the people think of him, not what he actually, truly is. See, cause then the narrator basically tricks the reader into seeing things exactly from the perspective of people in the book.

  • Beak on April 14th, 2016 - 12:39pm


    In fact, I’ve been writing a book – Darcy’s Diary – which explains things from his perspective.
    And no, it’s not filled with gushing about Elizabeth. That’s the last thing I’d want to put in there.
    He’s a smart guy, reads a lot, follows reason. And everybody writing fan fiction about him tries to pretend it was love at first sight, which is absolutely the most proposterous idea ever.
    Like EVER.
    Austen would curl up and hide under a stone just hearing the misconstruction people have (cont.)

  • Beak on April 14th, 2016 - 12:46pm


    dared devise with her beloved characters.

    Anyway, I’m glad you’ve read P&P. It’s not so much of a girl book as one might think. Maybe not as popular among teenage guys, but adults of either gender can appreciate Austen’s works for their true-to-life interactions and legitimate character motivation.

    I’ve read the Narnia books; not LOTR or the Hobbits though. I like Narnia, but some people are uncomfortable with C.S. Lewis’s works because he apparently believed some things (cont.)

  • Beak on April 14th, 2016 - 12:49pm


    like purgatory? So idk. They’re interesting though!

    Haha I wasn’t trying to imitate you too hard there; it was just supposed to be funny, but I thought you were likely a coffee & dog person instead of cat & tea. XD

  • Beak on April 14th, 2016 - 1:28pm


    It’d be cool to read the first chapter of your story!

    To answer your Q’s,
    Favorite audio show…um, well there’ this thing called Adventures in Odyssey — ok ok corny I know. haha 😀
    There’s a fun show called Alex & Borble which is pretty funny, and it’s clean & family friendly and everything.
    Audiobook? Besides P&P, probably…um. (Well, audiobooks aren’t really like audio SHOWS to me. They’re basically books, so…maybe podcasts is a better category there.)

    Fav season – spring. (cont.)

  • Beak on April 14th, 2016 - 1:29pm


    Because everything is fresh and cold and taking life.

    Aaand I’ve officially written more comments that you did. So, to quote my record-breaking predecessor:
    Wow I talk too much. Lol.

  • stormshadow on April 15th, 2016 - 12:08pm


    Lol- I am? *Reads down all nine comments* I am. xD Oh, wow there’s a fandom? wow. The secret world of Pride and Prejudice(ers?) Lol, my favorite book never lasts more than a few months. Tho my current favorite book, has been four months because, *coughs* I may have a 17$ library fine… So yeah. My card is “blocked”. :-/ Ummm Yeah. I don’t remember who Mrs Bennet is… I read it when I was seven which was 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, years ago. So it’s almost been half my life span since I read it. Cut me

  • stormshadow on April 15th, 2016 - 12:09pm


    some slack. xD Ahh. I didn’t know people read this deep into novels. I just read them. Lol. Well, I mean how is it not a romance? It’s kinda both imo. But remember I WAS SEVEN. Haha. Was Lydia the one who like ran away with the dude, because she was being blackmailed… (I was seven Lol) Lizzie is the one that’s in a “relationship” as you call it with Darcy amirite? Well yeah I can agree with you on that – Austen was a great writer, just so called “chick flicks” aren’t my thing (I know it

  • stormshadow on April 15th, 2016 - 12:10pm


    it apply’s more to movies and you probably don’t think it is a “chick flick” but I was seven. So it’s how I remember it. Lol.) She was probably one of the greatest of her time, and I would do quite a bit to be able to be as good a writer as she was, I just don’t enjoy romance/relationship stuff like that. Idk.
    Oh btw, I was against Lizzie all the way – Lol I never liked her. Only character I halfway liked was Darcy.

  • stormshadow on April 15th, 2016 - 12:10pm


    Lol, yeah I get it, the narrator wants you to dislike Darcy and than learn later that he’s a good guy- but I geuss I’m weird, cause through the whole book I always liked Darcy. I don’t know why. xD

  • stormshadow on April 15th, 2016 - 12:11pm


    That sounds cool – How far a long with it are you? I’m hoping to start my new thing Monday but we will see how it goes. 🙂 Ah I’ve read all of those – really enjoyed Lotr in fact I could talk your ear off about that but anyway- The Hobbit was probably my favorite book of all time though. Really enjoyed what Tolkien did in that book, he was and is my favorite author of all time. I really like his stuff, and his ethics etc. (I don’t necesarily believe all of the stuff he believes to be clear-

  • stormshadow on April 15th, 2016 - 12:13pm


    Don’t know if this posted or naw–
    as I haven’t done a lot of research on it) But I read something that when he wrote them if he messed up in the storytelling, or anything, he would start all the way over, so everything went consistently and there weren’t any continuity problems with his writing. I thought that was really cool, since when he wrote it, it was much harder to just wipe everything out and start anew. He didn’t have a nice computer with word on it to work from. Now I’m rambling tho

  • stormshadow on April 15th, 2016 - 12:14pm


    He believed in Purgatory? I hadn’t heard that, to me it’s not a huge deal if he believes it as long as he’s not preaching it in his books, I mean I’ve read authors that aren’t even Christian, just because I don’t agree with their worldview doesn’t mean I can’t read there books. 🙂

    Btw you didn’t break it- You had nine, I had nine. 🙂

  • Beak on April 20th, 2016 - 8:32am


    Wow um, big fine? O.o How much do you read?!
    Lol you never liked Lizzie as a character? I guess I can see that happening. I wasn’t particularly for or against her, but as she’s the main character, and a girl, supposedly more sensible and sassy than the others, I was fine with her.

    Yeah, I get the Austen-is-just-romance perspective. I mean, hey it’s like,

  • Beak on April 20th, 2016 - 8:42am


    Yeah well, I don’t usually read that deep into books, but I heard some pretty deep and interesting stuff in a Pride & Prejudice seminar podcast I listened to. (nerdy, I know. Pretty big fan over here, if you haven’t noticed yet. lol)

    I’ve written only about 3000-4000 words on “Darcy’s Diary” and that’s only 1/6 of the way through P&P. 😛 It’s been fun to try to write like Austen does; her wording and sentence structure are so different from colloquial speech.

  • Beak on April 20th, 2016 - 8:47am


    It’s very succinct and the thought comes at the end of the sentence so it’s almost backwards.

    Tolkien sounds like a cool writer! I’ll check it out if I get a chance.

    True what you say, just because you don’t agree with an author doesn’t mean you can’t read their books.
    It reminds me of that verse

  • Beak on April 20th, 2016 - 8:50am


    “Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

    Most of what we’ve talked about has been books. It would almost be cool to find a book that both of us would read and then discuss it here or whatever as we go through it. How does that sound to you? That is, IF we find a

  • Beak on April 20th, 2016 - 8:52am


    book of a genre that we both like.

    And back to our regular format, here’s a Q:
    I don’t remember if you’ve mentioned, but do you play any instruments?

  • flyingrider on April 21st, 2016 - 4:59pm


    Ok I havent got on in like 10 days and cant read through everything… So where are we? Someone please update me haahah

  • stormshadow on April 22nd, 2016 - 9:49am


    Yeah well um I read maybe six normal sized books on average every two weeks- well one of the two week cycle I forgot to take them back, than forgot altogether and well three weeks later… Nope. Darcy was my homeboy. xD Yehp reading the book I was pretty indifferent just like oh wow Lizzie likes Darcy… Here comes some drama… than they get married etc. I geuss I’m kinda jaded to romance stuff since it all seems the same, one of them likes the other, the other doesn’t like the one of them, there’s

  • stormshadow on April 22nd, 2016 - 9:51am


    some drama maybe even involving a third person, than they make things right and get together. lol.

    Yehp! True that. 🙂 and it was one of those things where you knew they were gonna get together I mean it’s Jane Austen. xD Lol, nah there’s nothing wrong with it. I mean I’ve listened/watched a lot of LotR stuff over the years. Even the Special Features which I make fun of my bro for wanting to watch the spec features on every movie. xD I can be a little bit of a nerd when it comes to stuff I’m

  • stormshadow on April 22nd, 2016 - 9:51am


    crazy into, tho I don’t consider myself a nerd, I’m not unnaturally smart, I’m not like crazy into a lot of “nerdy stuff” etc. I mean yall can be the judge of whether I am or naw. xD niiice!!!! That’s quite a bit I don’t think I’ve ever written that much. Congrats! Yeah, that kinda “colloquial” writing I’m not a huge fan of, but I think if you can do it correctly like Tolkien or Austen than it’s really good, for me I do normal like YA stuff so it’s modern writing, but I try to be as descriptive

  • stormshadow on April 22nd, 2016 - 9:52am


    as descriptive as Tolkien was in his using modern language. (Tolkien was VERY descriptive)! Yehp. good verse! 🙂 Um well *ahem* I may not be able to get a book from the library or something so yeah. I do own the Lotrs and Hobbit, so if ya wanted to do one of those idk. It’s a good idea but my library fine kinda hampers it. Lol. I don’t have a library of books at all. What are all the genres you like? As of right now no I don’t but I’m learning guitar which is sooo hard. Lol.

    StormShadow out!

  • stormshadow on April 22nd, 2016 - 12:00pm


    Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm, well basically just been talking about some different books/style of writing rn.

  • Beak on April 28th, 2016 - 12:33pm


    Man, you’re bummed out about having a library FINE — I wish I had a LIBRARY! (I mean they do have libraries here, but not much in English) lol
    Ummmm, well I like mystery novels/adventurous stories just because they keep you guessing — or they should (Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew are predictable, lame, things are solved too neatly). I don’t usually choose books according to genre; if there is something that catches my interest, I pick it up – and those usually happen to be mystery,

  • Beak on April 28th, 2016 - 12:43pm


    classic literature, stories with realistic, natural dialogue, and conflict between people…
    And this has now totally digressed from genres… lol
    I think some people would consider the books I like as “cheesy” daily-life-issues sort of material (like Little Women or something). Which is true, although I don’t know what genre that is.
    Ah! I’ve been learning guitar too! Just chords though, none of that magical finger playing characteristic of seasoned guitarists.

  • Beak on April 28th, 2016 - 12:56pm


    It’s waaay easier to master, at some level, than piano.

    By the way, it was nearly a week since I last commented because we’ve been on the road, so sometimes it might be a while before I reply, but I still check back pretty regularly.

    Three q’s:
    What genres of books do you read?
    When do you get summer break? (Or don’t you? I don’t officially have break, but we take breaks throughout the year which makes up for it. lol we homeschoolers are pathetically scheduled sometimes)
    Um, any pets? 😀

  • stormshadow on May 3rd, 2016 - 9:59am


    Sorry- I haven’t checked up on this in a while. I promise I’ll respond before tomorrow. 🙂

    Haiiiii to you too, Flyingrider! 😀
    How goes it?

  • stormshadow on May 31st, 2016 - 12:32pm


    I posted on this a while back geuss it didn’t go through.. *sighs*

  • beak on June 1st, 2016 - 1:51pm


    Question for you guys: Where (if you have) have you flown before on a trip? 🙂

    I’m going to Canada to visit family in a short while and am getting all excited about flying again.

  • stormshadow on June 6th, 2016 - 7:56am


    Hey so first off- So so so SO sorry for not responding sooner, I posted like a five comment response but I geuss they never got on, and I’ve been putting off writing another one in case it doesn’t go through and it’s just a waste of time- but annnnnnnnnnywayy.
    1. Heyy good news on the fine front, I’m now deebbbtt freeee. Got it paid off, can finally read again! 😀 Oh snap- that stinks you don’t have a English library- ours is pretty small and has pretty little for a library but I haven’t

  • stormshadow on June 6th, 2016 - 7:57am


    exhausted all the books I wanna read in it. Lol. So how do you read? Just buy the books online? True- Oh I thought you were gonna say you liked Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew we might have had a problem… xD Yeah they’re way too predictable. Halfway through the book you can predict the end. Yeah usually I just look around in the teen section of our library online, and find something to read- Right now I’m reading “Gone” which is a really good book so far, that I’m really enjoying, I’m also gonna start-

  • stormshadow on June 6th, 2016 - 7:58am


    – 3. (I forgot to put a number on the last one it’s 2. )once I finish gone – the last book in the Rule of Thre3 trilogy which is amazing. I usually pick up stuff with a lot of action suspense, I don’t usually read a ton of just mystery, but a good suspense thriller book, will have mysteries so I like it that way- Pretty much whatever I see and think, that looks like a cool book lets try it, and if I read a few chapters in there’s not swearing, and it’s not romance driven like most YA books,

  • stormshadow on June 6th, 2016 - 7:59am


    , 4. I’ll read it. Yeah I haven’t read classics in a while just cuz I’ve read like every possible one at our library Lol. I remember one time when I was 9 I got a big stack of like 20 of them and took them home and just read them all in two weeks. (It was summer so no school) Good times… Lol.

  • Beak on February 20th, 2017 - 2:55am


    Woah..how did I not respond to you since June O.o So sorry!

    I hope you see this message Stormshadow! Not sure if you’re on here much anymore.

  • stormshadow on April 26th, 2017 - 7:50am


    I’ve tried to respond three times nowww. -_-

  • Beak on May 15th, 2017 - 11:20pm


    Well! Hi Stormshadow!
