Tales of Stars (Part 2)

  Years past, they’d traveled throughout the world. And they had grown to know each other so well that they could communicate even without words, with a single glimpse, they knew. Of course, from the moment they knew the truth in the shadow, they had known they belonged together. But their bound grew tighter while they traveled the world, while every day they lived together.

  The journey had blown the princess’s mind. In her life, she had never left her continent, nor had she imagined a world without flowers and warmth. Together, she and the prince brought sunlight and shadow to the world.

  During the day, she spread the radiant sun all over the place she arrived, and left precious gifts that decorated the world. Where she stepped, spring and summer followed, flourish and vitality remained.

  During the night, the prince and the princess bestrewed both moonlight and starlight onto the sky, lit up the darkness. Where they arrived, stars and moon followed, where they danced, stars and moon twinkled.

  However, like the normal couples, they fought sometime. And with their great, powerful magic…they made unexpected things. Some horrible, and some beautiful.

  Once they traveled to the north, but they had a quarrel. The princess was so angry that she refused to raise the moon that night, and her anger caused the arrival of winter. The continent was filled with snowflakes and eternal ice. In order to light up their pass, the prince could only manage to command the stars onto the sky by himself. But the weather was too cold that he couldn’t stop shaking his hands.

  He lost his controlled on the stars and lit up to many of them on the sky, and to keep themselves warmed up, the stars gathered together and created a shade of stars fall, which created the first aurora.

  They once traveled to the south, yet they had an argument. The price was so furious that he caused the explosion of star. And with the princess’s howling wind, the meteorite hit on the earth and created earthquake, which also lead to the high and low of the earth.

  Such things happened, but in the end, they forgave each other and went on with their journey. Their fights only made them understood each other more and love each other more.

  They were sun.

  They were moon.

  They were stars.

  Together, they created the seasons, and they brighten up the world.

  And they were also called Adam and Iva.

History of Lilliput

History of Lilliput 

  Gather around, brothers and sisters, brothers of my soul, sisters of my blood. Hear the true history of Lilliput.

  Have you ever wonder the truth of Gulliver’s Travel? Let me tell you the truth, for I am the bard of Lilliput, who heard the true history from the old. Now…

  Once upon a time, a cowardly man was saved by the countrymen of Lilliput, who was now called Gulliver. However, there were actually two Gulliver, Gulliver of Lilliput, and Gulliver of England. Although with the same given name, they had an entirely different characteristic. Gulliver of Lilliput was one of the most successful man in the country, loved by all people, the wise adviser of the emperor, not to mention the hero of war. While the guy from England? A coward and a fake, he brought nothing but trouble.

  When Gulliver of England first came to Lilliput, he did cause a huge sensation across the entire country, since he was the largest man we’ve ever seen, as big as the castle itself, as heavy as the greatest mountain. Yet, apparently, height didn’t equal courage and honor.

Tales of Stars (Part 1)

  A tale always hides a tale; a secret always hides a secret.

  It’s said that when the great princess cries, rain drops; when she sobs, winds blow.

  There will always be a moonless night, no stars, no light, only endless darkness.

  Wind blows furiously, rain drop heavily. All animals hide, all trees bow. They hide from the anger of the Mother Earth. While humanity might think all of this a natural phenomenon, there is a tale lies behind.

  A tale of broken heart, a tale of sorrow, a tale of amend.

  And here, was where the story began.

  Once upon a time, a princess and a prince lived happily on the land.

  Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess. Her hair was as dark as the night, her skin as smooth as the water, and the most special of all, was that she had eyes with different colors. One of her eyes was as bright as the sun, while the other silver as the moon. They shone so brightly that you could barely look straight into them. However, the people remembered her not because of her appearance…which was only an extraordinary figure to put inside the folk tales. It was because of her bravery. She was spoken not by her unforgettable beauty, but her fearless behaviors.

  She was the creator.

  She was the sun.

  She was the moon.

  Long in the universe, she lived in the shadow, with only magical creatures as her company. Those magical creatures, her most loyal friend, followed her everywhere, any place. Together, they put the stars high in the sky, they controlled the sun’s pass, and they beheld the raised and fell of moon.

  With them, the earth was always spring, full of flourishing flowers and fruits, and all creatures lived peacefully together.

    She cared for the world, but there was always a hole inside her, for she was the only of her kind in the world. yet far away from where the princess lived, a prince lived in the forest, for he traveled all the world.

  Years past, seasons past, the princess lived alone with her magic creatures.

October + September Book Haul + Pottermore Patronus + New Announcement

October + September Book Haul
Pottermore Patronus
New Announcement 

  I know that’s a lot…but sorry, I forget some other post than reviews are important too!!! I fail my book tag goal terribly these months…such a busy freshman. (Nonsense, I spent most of my time wandering around.) So! Let’s start with Pottermore Patronus!!!

  I was so excited when I heard the announcement and I did the quiz immediately that day, without any hesitation. Really, immediately. And you know what? I love my Patronus!!! I know a lot of people out there hate their Patronus, since it might be a salmon…or something like that. But, there are also extremely wonderful Patronus, such as Griffins, or Phoenix. However, they’re also extremely rare as well. I think I also got a rare Patronus? At least that’s what Pottermore told me, unless it said it to everyone. Still, I wish everyone of you love your Patronus regardless how much you hate the animal, Patronus aren’t always what we think they are.
 Ready to reveal my Patronus? The answer is—Tigress!!!! Yeah!!! I love Tigress, although I original hope that it’ll be a lion or lioness. But, still, they’re all great for me, even they’re just cat. I love cats!!!! And I think Tigress represent me well, though I can hardly tell you why. Instinct. Instinct.

Yellow Brick War
By Danielle Paige

  I’m the other girl from Kansas.
  And I have a job to do.
  JOIN the witches.
  FIGHT for Oz.
  KILL Dorothy.

  Finally, after 365 days…I’m going to write the review, why? Because it’s SO GREAT that I LOVE it and couldn’t say anything until now. Fine…after 365 days is a fake, and I didn’t write the review because I’ve caught a cold recently and after I finished my schoolwork? I’m exhausted.
But you know what? THIS BOOK IS ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT EXPECT THE FACT THAT I NEED TO WAIT FOR The End of Oz UNTIL NEXT YEAR!!!!! I NEED IT, RIGHT NOW!!!!! This series just successfully grabbed me and wouldn’t let me go. And who knows? I’ve also become a slave of Amy Gunn. (Perhaps…also Nox’s?) 
 A bit crazy, am I? NOOO!!!! THAT’S THE MAGIC OF Oz INFECTING YOU!!!!

  Once upon a time, there was a girl from Kansas named Dorothy.

  You might know her as the Girl Who Rode the Cyclone. She ended up in Oz, where she became friends with the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion. But the temptation of magic was too much for her. she let it change her. her friends became twisted of their former selves.

  The magical land of Oz is now a dark and menacing place.

  My name is Amy Gumm. Tornadoes must have a thing about girls from Kansas, because I got swept away on one too. I also landed in Oz, where Good is Wicked, Wicked is Good, and the Wicked Witches clued me in to my true calling.


  The only way to stop Dorothy from destroying Oz—and Kansas—is to kill her. And I’m the only one who can do it.
  But I failed. Others died for my mistake. Because of me, the portal between the worlds has been opened and Kansas and Oz are both in danger. And if I don’t find a way to close it?

  Dorothy will make sure I never get to go home again.
