Update: Friday Posts

So you may have noticed that I haven't been posting on Fridays every week. The thing about Friday posts is that I want to write reviews of books, movies or fanfics. So, of course, I don't have something to review every week.
I'm really sorry I don't post every week on Fridays, but please understand that I don't always have something to write about.

Hope you have an amazing day/evening/night,

After Ever After by Paint

 After Ever After is a song by Jon Cozart (Paint) on Youtube.
The song starts off with "If you've ever wondered why Disney tales all end in lies, here's what happened after all their dreams came true." He sings from the princesses points of view, singing about what happened after the movies ended.
He's made two of these songs (After Ever After and After Ever After 2). In the first song, he sang about Ariel (The Little Mermaid), Jasmine (Aladdin), Belle (Beauty and the Beast) and Pocahontas (Pocahontas)
It was posted on March 12 2013, and has more than 56 million views. 

I love this song so much! I know all the lyrics, and constantly sing it at school (my friends hate me so much). It's so creative and fun to listen to.
Be warned though: if you listen to the lyrics, this song can ruin your childhood. Especially the Elsa part in After Ever After 2.
It is a really good song though, and Paint is pretty awesome in general. If you didn't know, he's also the guy who sang Harry Potter In 99 Seconds.

Have you listened to After Ever After? Did you like it? Let me know in the comments! Personally, I want him to make a 3rd one, but about the princes instead.

I hope you have an amazing day/evening/night,

Straightest Person



(Minor Spoilers For House Of Hades and Blood of Olympus)

I find that Percy and Jason talk like this a lot, and it's actually really funny to read. 
For the record though, Jason looks amazing with glasses. I'm mean really.
...
...
...
*awkward silence* (It's only awkward if you make it awkward)
Right, moving on.

I personally don't like to put people in stereotypes, so I obviously don't think Percy and Jason are 'acting gay' or anything. I just find that their bromance is so funny. If anyone who didn't know a thing about the books read this conversation, they might take it a bit differently than people who are hardcore shippers of Percabeth and Jasper.
SIDE NOTE: Do you guys say Jiper or Jasper? There doesn't seem to be one way that's agreed upon.
What do you guys think about Nico being gay? I personally think it was a good idea. I'm a huge supporter of LGBTQ+ Rights, and I think this was a good idea. It also helps explain why Nico was so obsessed with Percy, and why people thought he had a crush on Annabeth. I never really picked up on that throughout the books, but a lot of people did. I like that Rick made it so that he didn't have a crush on her, he was jealous of her.
I just thought it was a good idea.

What do you think of this post? Do you agree with what I said? Let me know in the comments! (The comments are looking a bit empty...) 
I hope you have a lovely day/evening/night,

Cinderella (2015 Version)

Cinderella: The story follows the fortunes of young Ella whose merchant father remarries following the tragic death of her mother. Keen to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother Lady Tremaine and her daughters Anastasia and Drizella into the family home. But when Ella's father suddenly and unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother's dying words and to "have courage and be kind." And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an employee at the palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul.

I can easily say the 2015 version of Cinderella is one of my favourite movies of all time. It came on Netflix a couple weeks ago, so naturally I've watched it at least 10 times.
I was never a big fan of the fairytale, but this movie blew me away. It's hard to explain why. I just love the way they portrayed Ella. Sometimes when I don't have enough time to watch the full movie, I'll watch the trailers, because even they just give you the good feels. 
This story is just so happy and cute. But it also reveals what happens behind-the-scenes of the fairytale. The way the stepmother manipulates people, the prince being torn between love and duty.
It's simply amazing.

Have you seen the movie? Did you like it? Let me know in the comments! I would love to hear your thoughts :)

I hope you have an enchanting day/evening/night

P.S. Always remember: "Where there is kindness, there is goodness. And where there is goodness, there is magic."

She Just Fell Off That Cliff?


This is true. Very true. 

This doesn't just apply to the PJO fandom either. Honestly, no matter what fandom you're in, this post applies to you. Whenever someone tells you that they hate whatever you like, you want to push them off a cliff (or is that just me...?)
I like the paramedic in this: so she just fell off that cliff? Please, it is never that simple when a fangirl is involved. People say fangirls are maniacs. I say we're just very passionate about what we like. And sure we're a bit crazy... but isn't everyone?
I actually remember my friend once posted a picture that said "I mentally murder the people I don't like"

 









and she tagged me in the middle of it. Not because she wants to murder me (as my other friend thought), but because she knew I did that all the time.


Do you mentally murder the people you don't like? Let me know in the comments! (Seriously guys, the comment section is a bit empty)

I hope you have an amazing day/evening/night,

Family Luke... You Promised


Oh, don't mind me. I'm just bawling my eyes out in the corner.
This is one of the saddest posts I have ever seen in my life. Like, why did someone make this? Did they want to torture us?
Honestly, I never really liked Luke when I was reading the books. I mean, I guess I thought he was okay in the first book, but then he, you know, became Kronos and my opinion of him kind of went downhill. 
But after finishing the series, I'm starting to realize he was actually a really good character. And after what happened in The Last Olympian... Well I guess Luke was a better guy than I gave him credit for.
He really was a good brother to Annabeth. She was just 7 years old when he and Thalia found her, but instead of just leaving her on the streets like they could have done, they took her with them. They protected her (and in some cases, she protected them). The thing I resent the most about Luke isn't that he went evil. It's that he left Annabeth behind. I mean, I know he still cared about her, but I wish he stayed. I wish he put her as more of a priority.
I didn't realize how many people liked Luke, until people started commenting on my fanfic, asking me to bring him in. Saying that he was their favourite character. It's funny that someone so horrible could be loved by so many. I wonder if that many people cared about him before he died, or if it was his sacrifice that won them over.

What do you guys think? Did you cry at this post? Do you like Luke? Let me know in the comments! (Literally no one comments, and it makes me so sad).
I hope you have a extraordinary day/evening/night,

What Disney Lied About

This is so true! I wish animals were willing to clean my house. That would be so much fun :)
Can you imagine forest creatures helping you clean your house? My house would be so clean, all the time.
I don't need a prince. I just need forest creatures to spend time with.
Wow that makes my life sound sad...

P.S. I'm sorry this is a couple hours late and really short. I had a lot of schoolwork+NaNoWriMo started today. Again, I'm really sorry!
