Historical Interviews #1 - J.R.R Tolkien

Hello fellow Lord of the Rings fans! (looking at you Middle Earth Musician :D)

Recently, I came across a special device while clearing out my attic. It looked very much like the one ring. I put it on, and found I had the ability to call upon any deceased person from the past, and speak to them. So naturally (as I was listening to the Fellowship of the Ring audiobook at the time) I decided to call upon J.R.R Tolkien, and interview him. This is what happened.


Me: Hello J.R.R Tolkien!

Tolkien: Hello [Psylova], and please, just call me Tolkien.

Me: Why Tolkien? Wouldn't you rather be called John?

Tolkien: It's only for the purposes of this interview. I'm very proud of my family name! It comes from the German word "tollk├╝hn", which means foolhardy! And calling me John would be boring now, wouldn't it?

Me: Okay then Tolkien! Well, I would first like to talk to you about your early life. What was it like?

Tolkien: Ah, well, my…

Modern Mozart

Hello again everybody! It's me, Psylova!

I'm back to tell you all about a goal I am working towards. You see, I have always had an interest in music. And I don't mean modern songs about how awesome the singer is, but actual, genuine music. Music that tells a story (preferably a story without swear words), and gets your imagination going!

Well, since I was little, I've been coming up with my own little pieces of music and singing them happily. Recently however, my dream of making my own music has become possible.

About a year or so ago, I discovered my favourite music composer. If you were to ask me who my favourite musician was, I wouldn't say Beyonce or Kanye West or Michael Jackson, I would say to you, loud and proud, Antti Martikainen! He's a finnish composer who makes his own epic music and releases them in albums. Along with him, my favourites are Derek and Brandon Fiechter, Brunuhville, Peter Crowley Fantasy Dream and Adrien von Ziegler.

The World of Danu #1: The Inquisitors of Arador

Image
Greetings fellow probably humans!

So, as those of you who have been following my... uh... irregular posts will know, I am currently working on a big project: I am building an epic fantasy world. That's right. WORLD. A full world with inhabitants, lore, kingdoms, culture and everything. So far, I would say it's been a pretty big success, and today I would like to introduce to you a figure from my world.

Please welcome... THE INQUISITOR!!!

So, you may be wondering: What is the Inquisitor?

Well. Allow me to explain.

My world is called Danu, named after the Irish mother goddess and patron of the Aes Sidhe or Irish fairies. Danu is home to over a billion people, and it's vast history extends back over four thousand years to a mythical age known as the Time of Twilight. Much of Danu is uncharted, with only fanciful sailor talk telling of the magical lands to the east. Two rival empires rule over vast portions of the continent, Arador and Ysgaroth.

Arador is the one we will be focusing…

This morning, my sister showed me a post on this blog:

This is what it said:
Dear Writers, (Warning: This is a rant).
  Before we start, I want to say that this started out as a light-hearted rant, and it turned into a full-blown rant, and then it turned very serious. This is something that has been on my heart all week... 


       Have you ever read a book that was good? 

       No, I mean really, really, REALLY good! And while you're reading it, you're think something along the lines of this: This book is SO good, I'm going to recommended it to EVERYONE!
     And then you turn the page and the writer starts dropping f-bombs. And you're just sitting there like, 
     Well, thank you, dear writer, now I won't recommended this book to half of the people I was thinking of! 
        We all have that one book. *Cough, cough* The Fault in Our Stars... 

         And look, I'm not going to tell any of you what's too much and too far in, er…

Another tag post. Great...

So, my little sister Ralraymee has tagged me into another tag. I literally already did this in march THIS YEAR. But hey, whatever. Let's do this!

Rules:

Thank the person who tagged you - Do I have to?Make a picture for the tag post - Here it is:
Tag three people - I'm not gonna do this, simply because everyone I know has been tagged.
Alright. So, now I gotta answer some questions. Here they are:

1. Who's your favourite Author? That's easy - J.K Rowling. I love the Harry Potter series! I listen to them before I go to bed pretty much every night, and I can even quote random things from it... I'm such a nerd...
I also love the writing style of Christopher Paolini, author of Eragon. It's awesome that he was able to write a bestseller at such a young age. He could do it, and so can I!

2. What's your favourite book? (I know I'm mean; I'm only letting you choose one) Is this question really necessary after how I answered question 1?
3. What's your favourit…

Introducing.. Witch's Eyrie!

Image
Hey Guys!

I apologize for not updating my blog in months, but I had nothing to write about. Until now.

Recently, I have been practicing my drawing for an hour per school day. It's a load of fun. My main project is to learn to draw in the anime style, because of a television show I would like to make in the future, which fits perfectly into that style. It's called Witch's Eyrie.

Witch's Eyrie is about a group of troubled youths who are sent to the small, mountain town of Witch's Eyrie. There, they will hopefully learn how to be proper members of society. However, the town and it's school, Eyrie Academy, have a dark secret. More sightings of monsters and aliens have occurred at Witch's Eyrie than any other place on earth, and the town has a supernatural history. Now, a new threat is arising, and it's up to these teenagers to save the world.

INTRODUCING - WITCH'S EYRIE!

Of Rising Authors

For those of you who didn't know, I love building worlds in my head. I love coming up with unique stories and characters to inhabit the whole worlds that I build in my head. I got my inspiration for this from J.R.R.Tolkien, who built an entire history for Middle Earth (or as it is actually named: Arda... I am such a nerd), right back up to the creation of the world! This was further enhanced by George R.R. Martin (apparently you need two R's in your name to write high fantasy) and his world of Westeros (and Essos) in his book series titled A Song of Ice and Fire).

I especially love Martin's idea of the 'Others' (more commonly known as 'White Walkers' in the TV adaptation of his books, Game of Thrones), and how they are kept in a far northern land by a large wall made of ice. This wall is manned by the Night's Watch, a group dedicated to keeping out the White Walkers.

For ages I have been trying to make up worlds and stories at that level. Is it hard? Y…
