My Favorite Literary Graduation Speech: What Is A Gallagher Girl?

*NOTE! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR THE SERIES!!! PROCEED WITH CAUTION!*




 
"What is a Gallagher Girl?
When I was eleven I thought I knew the answer to that question. That was when the recruiters came to see me. They showed me brochures and told me they were impressed by my test scores and asked if I was ready to be challenged. And I said yes. Because that was what a Gallagher Girl was to me then, a student at the toughest school in the world.

What is a Gallagher Girl?
When I was thirteen I thought I knew the answer to that question. That was when Dr. Fibs allowed me to start doing my own experiments in the lab. I could go anywhere—make anything. Do anything my mind could dream up. Because I was a Gallagher Girl. And, to me, that meant I was the future.

What is a Gallagher Girl?
When I was seventeen I stood on a dark street in Washington, D.C., and watched one Gallagher Girl literally jump in front of a bullet to save the life of another. I saw a group of women gather around a girl whom they had never met, telling the world that if any harm was to come to their sister, it had to go through them first.

What is a Gallagher Girl?
I’m eighteen now, and if I’ve learned anything, it’s that I don’t really know the answer to that question. Maybe she is destined to be our first international graduate and take her rightful place among Her Majesty’s Secret Service with MI6. Maybe she is someone who chooses to give back, to serve her life protecting others just as someone once protected her. Who knows? Maybe she’s an undercover journalist. An FBI agent. A code breaker. A queen. Maybe she’s even a college student. Or maybe she’s so much more.

You know, there was a time when I thought that the Gallagher Academy was made of stone and wood, Grand Halls and high-tech labs. When I thought it was bulletproof, hack-proof, and yes, fireproof. And I stand before you today happy for the reminder that none of those things are true. Yes, I really am. Because I know now that a Gallagher Girl is not someone who draws her power from that building. I know now with scientific certainty that it is the other way around.


What is a Gallagher Girl? She’s a genius, a scientist, a heroine, a spy. And now we are at the end of our time at school, and the one thing I know for certain is this: A Gallagher Girl is whatever she wants to be.
And, most of all, she is my sister."


 -From United We Spy by Ally Carter, book six in the Gallagher Girl series.

Write What You Know: River Travel

So last week, I asked you what you wanted to see as my next Write What You Know Post...

The results:

River Travel: 50%
Archery II: 31%
Horses III (Medieval fantasy horse tips): 18%
Wilderness Survival II: 37%
Farming and Rual Life: 18%

I will probably do all of these at some point... probably

...

My family kayaks and canoes a lot...The river near us is pretty boring, though there are some teeny tiny rapids and I once went over a micro waterfall (1-2 feet?) and it was pretty fun.

When we go kayaking, we normally just go out for the day...we have yet to kayak somewhere overnight and probably never will. Kayaking trips with my family are crazy and involve people sprinting ahead to lay in wait around corners and attack, flipping each other's kayaks.



Anyway:

  •  Kayaks are normally for one person and canoes are normally able to seat more people...but! There are two (and probably more) person kayaks and a lot of people take canoe's out by themselves...The main way to tell them apart is the paddling. When you canoe, you have a paddle with a single blade on it and you alternate sides. Kayaks have a paddle with a paddle blade on both ends.
     
  • Kayaks and canoes are used in different parts of the world...for example. Kayaks are used and possible originated in Greenland where it is colder. Canoes are used in other parts of the world.
     
  • They also come in different styles based on where they're from. A canoe in the pacific is going to be different from one in New England. 
       
  • People who have never been kayaking/canoeing before will probably accidentally splash people. (Because they're not digging their paddles in deep enough or they're putting them in two deep...)
     
  • They will probably be really sore in their shoulders and possibly lower back. And they won't want to pick up things or do basically anything with their hands or wrists.
     
  • It sounds like it could be nice and cool but HUMIDITY. WHY.
     
  • BOATS. ROCK. If you have someone stand up, they will probably fall in unless they're extremely balanced or have spent a lot of time on the water.
     
  • Even if you're not splashing each other (accidentally or deliberately) you'll be damp from all the spray when you get out. Yay! Dampness.
     
  • It is pretty easy to go over small waterfalls in a kayak. In fact, its FUN! But not so in a canoe...They kayaks have a lighter front. The tip actually goes under water and them pops back up...the canoe just fills with water and you sink. (It is also hard to keep straight when it's heading TOWARD the water fall and that causes it to go over sideways)
  • Of course there are A LOT of other water crafts...some small sail boats can sail up rivers. And then there are houseboats, rafts, inflatable rafts...the list goes on and on.
     
  • Each regions rivers and waterways have different dangers. In American swampland? Alligators and cotton mouth snacks and maybe a matinee if you're close enough to the coast. (I would not suggest swimming.) In the Amazon? *laughs* The Amazon will kill you...there are so many crazy things in there...(also alligators.) And Africa! A mixture of hippos and crocodiles! WHICH I, for one, WOULD NOT LIKE TO MEET. OR HOW ABOUT POLAR BEARS COMING AT YOU FROM THE BANKS IN ALASKA? OR HOW ABOUT NO?

    I HAPPEN TO LIKE MY LIFE, THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND WOULD LIKE TO KEEP IT.
     
  • Make up stuff too! It's YOUR story. Put cold-weather hippos in! Put some flesh eating fish in! Make an aquatic dragon...it can be nice or not...



    Just....don't get eaten by a hippo, 'k?

    -MK

    Hey! I managed to get a post up today!

Makeup Book Tag Take 2//In Which I Don't Answer SOC for Every Question



1. Primer: A book that left a lasting impression on you
Code Name Verity by Elizibeth Wein. I'm still shakin'


2. Foundation: A favorite first book in a series
 The Kill Artist by Daniel Silva.

I honestly hated this book. The books later in the series are SO amazing and this one is just...stereotypical "describe women by having themselves look in the mirror" male authored book.

3. Concealer: Pick some characters you wish didn't exist
 There actually is no one I can think of that I would take out of a book. There are people who annoyed me, but were crucial to the plot.

If I had to pick one, I'd pick Leo from The Tales of Goldstone Wood. Granted I've only read the first one, but he annoyed the everlasting heck out of me.

Could you be any less of a cowardly, spineless toad, mate?

4. Powder: Pick your favorite book from the end of a series
Winter from the end of The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. She did such a great job wrapping everything up AND THE SHIPS!!!


5. Eyebrows: Pick a book you think everyone should read
 As I said in the last version (which you can find here) I don't think there ever is a book that I would 100% suggest to EVERYONE and honestly think they would enjoy. 

6. Eyeshadow: Pick a book with your favorite colors on the front
 You know, as someone with photographic memory, you'd think I'd actually be able to remember what cover's look like. 


7. Eyeliner: Pick a dark and mysterious book
 Entwined by Heather Dixon. That book was freaky.


8. Mascara: Pick a long book
 Churchill's Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare: The Mavericks Who Plotted Hilter's Defeat by Giles Milton


9. Blush: Pick a book with swoony romance
 Gemina, Bk. 2 of the Illuminae Files

10. Highlighter: Pick a book that brightens your day



11. Lipstick: Your favorite book kiss

Twelve Golden Windows and Capes, Coffee Shops & Cake: Opening Scenes


 Capes, Coffee Shops & Cake is dual narrated. And the story alternates between Kace's story and Lily's (though they both appear in the others...) Kace's POV begins the story in Capes, Coffee Shops & Cake and Lily's ends it. In the sequel, Lily begins and it's during Kace's POV that the story wraps up. 










I peered over the side of the rooftop and down at the streets. Nothing. The whole city was bathed in shadows and the streets of New York were dark and grey, coupled with the wet snowy weather added to the overall gloominess of the evening. The tall black lamp posts lined the streets like silent sentinels, illuminating small circles on the ground. Snow flakes danced through the light beam and disappeared as they moved back into the darkness.

The roads were covered in the odd discolored slush of old snow and too many cars and the wind was biting through my coat and making the skin along my spine tingle.
Still nothing.

Thanks to the weather everyone was bundled up inside. Occasionally a car would zip by, carrying someone to a late New Year’s party. But now the street and sidewalks below were empty. Everyone and everything was sleeping.

Which makes sense, considering it was three in the morning of the day winter break ended and we were all forced to return to school. But the criminals are normally out every night, selling drugs and mugging people. It seemed that the cold had made even them crawl back into their holes.

Babies.

I pulled my phone out and cradled it in my hands. My fingerless gloves were made for gripping and climbing, so technically there was no reason to scoot back from the edge. But the last thing I wanted was to drop my phone several stories down and onto the pavement. Again.

Still. Nothing. 




Twelve Golden Windows is ALSO dual narrated (which is kind of odd...most of my stories are told through single narration. No wait. That USED to be it...now it's about 50/50...or maybe 40/60)



There was once a girl. She lived in the great marble city with her beloved parents, the kind Sultan and the wise Princess. But a sickness swept through the land the royal couple was counted among the dead and the whole city mourned.  Once the morning period had ended, it was their young daughter who was given the throne. Everyone said she would make a good ruler, for she was just as wise as her mother and kind of his father.
But she was young and scared.


Once there was a girl who became a sultana.
 Once there was a sultana who was cursed.















Of course, this is just the beginning of my second draft work and as you may be able to see from, you know, basically every post I've ever written, I don't edit things the first time I write them...Or the second apparently.


The first one is a little longer because it's actually the beginning of a chapter and the second is more of a cute little insert before chapter one...


Which one did you like better?

Makeup Book Tag //I Regret Nothing



I stole this tag from Adrianna @For The Love Of Books!

...

I literally saw her blog for the first time and then stole a tag from her.

Who is this person I've become?



1. Primer: A book that left a lasting impression on you

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I normally don't have "the emotions" long after I finish a book...Not so with SOC. And I loved the characters and they things they fought in the duology.

(Not as in impossible odds and corrupt merchants. I mean the side fight.)

2. Foundation: A favorite first book in a series

Six of Crows...

3. Concealer: Pick some characters you wish didn't exist

 I haven't read a book in a while were I actually wished the author hadn't added in a character...Some of them I hate, but they are important to the story.

4. Powder: Pick your favorite book from the end of a series

Crooked Kingdom? *docks the rock you threw at my head* 

5. Eyebrows: Pick a book you think everyone should read

Well, I'm not stopping now! SOC


Actually, no. You probably shouldn't. It has a lot a pretty serious content and has things that could trigger some people...

There's a lot of bad things that have happened to the characters and it just isn't meant for everyone...

In fact, I don't think there is a book that I would recommend to anyone. 


6. Eyeshadow: Pick a book with your favorite colors on the front

Ok, I actually was already going to answer this one with SOC and CK, so hush




7. Eyeliner: Pick a dark and mysterious book

...

SOC

8. Mascara: Pick a long book

Crooked Kingdom


9. Blush: Pick a book with swoon worthy romance

SIX OF CROWS AND CROOKED KINGDOM! INEJ AND KAZ

10. Highlighter: Pick a book that brightens your day

Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom

11. Lipstick: Your favorite book kiss

It actually wasn't even a kiss... but *spoilers* Kaz and Inej

Writing Drama and Second Drafts!

I almost went on a hiatus for the rest of May...

I haven't read anything in awhile (so no book reviews) and I've hit a writing slump with Twelve Golden Windows (so not writing updates and no snippets.)

WHICH MEANS I HAD NOTHING TO POST

But fear not! All is saved.

As most of you already know, I recently started the second draft of Twelve Golden Windows, my fairy tale retelling of The Starfish.

And about Chapter Three I hit the end of my creative rope. I'm trying to work on the story's conflict and the tension between characters in this next round, but IT'S. JUST. NOT. HAPPENING.

Which is rather problematic. If I was writing the first draft, I'd just step around the problem and keep writing. There will be time for that in the second draft....but that won't work now. THIS IS THE SECOND DRAFT.


...

Capes, Coffee Shops & Cake on the other hand...it's also a finished first draft.

And since I've been plotting the remaining two books of the trilogy, I've been inspired to work on it.
(Because you only want to work on the books that you aren't working on.)


But I don't want to abandon Twelve Golden Windows either...

My grand plan?

WORK ON BOTH!

Since they're not in the first draft stage I don't feel like I have to lock myself in each ones special little world...

So I can hop back and forth between them as the motivation comes without ditching either one...So I'll always have a project. But I'll be able to work on projects based on how I feel that day.

And maybe one will inspire the other?

So basically: 

1. I will be working on the second draft of both Twelve Golden Windows and Capes, Coffee Shops & Cake
 (I will not be working on In A Dream, even though it is also in the second draft stage because I'm not that crazy)

2. I won't be going on hiatus. 
You're stuck with me.
Sorry

Awkward and Awesome #3




-The Awkwards-

  • When you accidentally send some semi-stranger an email because you're a weirdo who memorizes things...like their email address you saw ONE TIME. And so when  you have an empty message open, you wonder to your stupid little self..."Hey. I wonder if I still remember it." So you type it in. And then you're so used to emailing notes to yourself (all the time) that instead of deleting the email, your muscles betray you and you hit send.
      
  • And then your friends laugh at you
       
  • I lovingly punched my friend while we were out with people and another girl (who I don't know as well) said,
    "Wow. I thought you were really nice."
    And I just stood there and blinked and then one of my other friends started laughing so hard she couldn't breath. And then they said something about "Don't let her elegant* act fool you." And I just...I am wounded.

     (*I'm paraphrasing. I have no idea what she said...and she doesn't remember either.)
     
  • Again with the laughing friends.
     
  • I wrote something on my foot (because I didn't have a sticky note) in red ink (because that's the color of pen I had) and I keep scaring myself because I think its blood.
     
  • I'm actually not that awkward of a person...It's only awkward if you let it get awkward. And I don't.
     
  • Summer is here. We were driving down a back road near my house and I saw a lady with a pixie cut on a mower in the front yard so I waved. And then they looked up and waved back.

    IT WAS NOT A LADY. I REPEAT! IT WAS NOT A LADY! IT WAS A TEENAGE BOY. I FRIENDLY-WAVED AT A TEENAGE BOY WHO SEMI-LIVES NEAR MY HOUSE.
  • Pours water on my friends head. Friend proceeds to chase me. I run through a doorway and almost take out two people.
     
  • When the hairdresser does a really bad job with your hair and you are forced to remember it forever and since he told you his name, you bring it up all the time.
    Problem? Nobody else remembers his name, so they're constantly asking me, "Wait? Whose Jake?"
  • Pro Tip: Don't give people your name if your going to destroy their lovingly grown hair


-The Awesomes-

     
  • You guys don't ACTUALLY want to hear about the good things. You want drama. DRAMA!

My Past Comes Back To Bite Me//The Lilah's Musical Challenge


...

So for those of you that have been following my blog awhile, you know about the drama surrounding Lilah's AMA (Ask Me Anything) Post last month to celebrate her blogoversary.

For any newcomers, you can gather the full story by reading the posts linked below (make sure to read the comment section too!)

If you're too lazy/busy to do that: The basics

  • Lilah had her blogoversary.
  • I asked her 11 questions
  • She thought that was a lot and said as much (in am email to me)
  • I added another twelve
  • And then she publicly challenged me to keep asking all the questions I could
  • And she ended up publishing two posts answering questions. Why two? Because she had to write an extra one for my 115 questions. I'm pretty sure it's the longest post she's ever published...


115 sounds like a lot of questions, but I totally could have kept going. The reason it was so short. Because I was only asking music related questions. And I don't really like music.



Fast forward a few weeks. I made a tag! Because I'm evil (apparently) and tagged a couple of people...(Mainly the ones who thought all the questions were so funny)


Unfortunately, dear dear twisted Ivie tagged me.

Dangit.

Fortunately, I was kind enough to wean the questions down to a measly 65 questions...

So here it is. A music based tag from someone who doesn't like music!




Rules for this Tag:

There are none, since I know the majority of you won't follow them anyways.
But for you pirates, here are some guidelines.

1. Link back to me, because
I am queen of all(And I am)
2. Or Link back to Lia's post, because it amuses me
(*evil laugh*)
3. Come and comment that you've done the tag so I can read it and laugh all over again
(How about no?)
4. Answer the questions
(Possibly)
5. Tag your friends so that they hate you
(*narrows eyes*)


  

1. One song on the radio that annoys you?So I actually really like this song "Ask Me How I Know" by Garth Brooks...and there is this other song that has almost the exact same intro...so every time I hear it I get my hopes up. So I hate it.
