Apology + Fairy Tail Chapter 488 Discussion

Hi, Lynette here! So firstly, I missed Thursday Quotables, and I haven’t managed to find any good quotes either recently. Sorry about that.

And next comes my Fairy Tail Chapter 488 Discussion.


SPOILERS!!
So first, Gajeel and Levy became officially canon I guess?

And secondly *screams* MY PREVIOUS PREDICTION WAS RIGHT?! GAJEEL DIED RIGHT AFTER THE SHIP BECOMING CANON JUST LIKE ZERVIS AGGHHH

But I’ve thought about it more now and I actually think that Gajeel will most likely come back. After all, everyone thought Gray died that time during the Grand Magic Games Arc right, but then Ultear reversed time. Same with Lucy and probably a few others (but I’ve forgotten now). Mashima doesn’t really kill many characters, with Simon as one of the only people actually dying.

That being said, Fairy Tail is probably drawing to its end, which means deaths can be likely to happen. I’ve never read or watched Rave Master before but I think I’ve heard that it ends sadly, (I may be wrong though) so Mashima wanted to make Fairy Tail a happy series? Well I hope he sticks to that.

And secondly, darn it, Mest! It was meant to be just a negotiation but now look what you’ve done! I never really liked Mest to be honest, and I could never see him as a Fairy Tail member and I still probably won’t be able to.

Also I know it’s a bit late now, considering the fact that she’s already made quite a few appearances in the other chapters, but I love Eileen’s design! She’s probably the most well designed character in the whole series. Oh, I also wonder what relationship she has with Erza. She seems a bit too young to be her mother so maybe they’re sisters? Oh well I hope we can find out soon.

I also want to state that I really want to know what’s going to happen with Zervis (as its my OTP I can’t help but be excited). Cana is currently trying to break Mavis’ body out but what is Mavis actually going to do afterwards? Is she going to fight him or what?

(a bit of self-promo here) check out my wattpad @kiwikoneko if you want to read any fanfictions about Fairy Tail or One Piece!

Okay I’m not sure what else to say now, but I’m excited for the next chapter of FT coming out on Monday! If anyone has any thoughts, please comment!

Death Note

Death Note follows the story of a highly intelligent teenage boy called Light Yagami, who finds a notebook one day which allows him to kill anyone just by writing their name down. Excited by this idea of being able to become the God of a new world in which no criminals live in, Light starts to kill criminals using just the notebook. He soon becomes known to the world as Kira, and slowly becomes insane with this idea of a world without crime ruled by him. 

However, L, who is an extremely clever and talented detective decides to start a case on finding and defeating Kira, giving Light a difficult obstacle to overcome. 

This anime may sound like any ordinary detective or crime series, but is amazing and very unique, standing out from all other detective and crime anime, or stories in general. I highly recommend Death Note, particularly for those who like thrillers, but it is still an incredible anime for everyone, hooking me on very quick, and I’m not someone who particularly likes crime stories.

Daily Lives of High School Boys

This anime series is exactly what the title says. It’s about the daily lives of typical high school boys. It mainly follows the story of Tadakuni, Yoshitake and Hidenori, who are some boys that love roleplays on the way to school, like telling ‘ghost stories’ which all turn out be extremely lame, like getting up to mischief such as wearing girls’ underwear and clothes, or just fooling around in general. It also shows some other boys from their school (such as those in the student council) and what sort of things they get up to. 

This anime is hilarious and is certain to crack you up at some point. I would definitely recommend if you want a laugh, or just something to cheer you up!

TMI vs. TID Tag

Hey guys! Today I’m gonna do a tag I saw on Clockwork Bibliophile‘s blog, called the TMI/TID tag. If you haven’t yet taken a look at Clockwork Bibliophile’s blog, you should – it’s amazing!

The TMI/TID tag was originally created by Samantha’s Books. It’s basically a tag comparing The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices. I love Cassie Clare, she’s one of my favourite authors, and personally, I think that TID is by far the best of her novels, so I’ll probably be a little bit biased in my choices…Anyways, let’s get on with the tag!

Oh, and spoilers for The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices ahead!


Questions

Favourite main character: Clary or Tessa?

Definitely Tessa! Tessa was by far better than Clary, I absolutely loved her character! Not sure about you, but I got the feeling that Clary was slightly arrogant and self-centered (which I guess is alright seeing as she did pretty much save the world) but I never got that from Tessa. Plus Tessa is a badass shapeshifting warlock so…

Favourite Herondale: Jace or Will?

This is a super easy question. I might have mentioned it before, I’m not sure, but I HATE Jace. He is just so, so annoying! I genuinely cannot fathom why everybody is obsessed with him…like why!! People want to meet Jace because they’re in love with him. I wanna meet Jace so I can punch him in the face. Okay, I’m not that violent but come on. Anyone else hate Jace? Or is it just me?

Plus Will is awesome, almost as awesome as Jem. He is sassy and sarcastic and just…well, plain amazing. Mia and Lynette have heard me say this lots, but come on, who DOESN’T love Will Herondale? You can’t read The Infernal Devices and not love Will!

Favourite love triangle: Clary/Simon/Jace or Will/Jem/Tessa?

Easy. Looks like TID scores once again – Herongraystairs it is! Will, Jem and Tessa are the cutest and they actually all accept each other loving Tessa (and one another) whereas with Simon, Jace and Clary it was initially just a jealousy war. Will doesn’t mind Jem loving Tessa (well he did, but he was understanding enough) and Jem doesn’t mind Will loving Tessa.

On the topic of ships, shoutout to Malec, the cutest couple in all of Cassie Clare’s books! Malec are OTP goals.

Better villain: Sebastian or the Magister?

At last! Finally something which I can say The Mortal Instruments is better at! Sebastian was so much more evil that the Magister could ever be – the way he planned all his attacks were so, so clever! I mean, you’d’ve have never suspected that Sebastian was initially working for Valentine, what with him loving Clary and living in Idris all his life.

Better army: The Dark Army or the Clockwork Army?

I’m gonna have to say the Dark Army for this one. Both the armies were equally as strong and powerful as the other, but I think the Dark Army were just a little bit more painful to defeat, seeing as they were humans, people’s loved ones converted into dark, morbid creatures by Sebastian. It would’ve been a little more hard for Clary to kill them knowing they didn’t mean to murder, knowing the pain she would cause to their loved ones.

Best first book: City of Bones or Clockwork Angel?

Clockwork Angel without doubt. I finished the book in less then a day, along with the rest of the Infernal Devices series. I remember my mum judging me for reading the book pretty much every second I was free. I liked the City of Bones too, I just think Clockwork Angel had more going on from Book 1, you fell in love with it quicker.

Best female sidekick: Cecily Herondale or Isabelle Lightwood?

I’m going to say Izzy for this one, mainly because we didn’t get to see Cecily all that much, so I don’t know how good a sidekick she’d be. However, if she was in the books more, than I have a feeling I’d pick her over Izzy.

Best setting: The New York Institute or the London Institute?

Well it depends, really. If you mean the book New York Institute, old and classic, then I’d go there, but if you mean the New York Institute we saw in the TV Series, Shadowhunters, modern and hi-tech, then I’d have to say the London Institute. But I hope it doesn’t rain as much in the Victorian times as it does in 2016 London.

Best last book: City of Heavenly Fire or Clockwork Princess?

Clockwork Princess definitely. Like Clockwork Angel I COULD NOT put this book down. I literally sped through it and gahh the epilogue. Don’t even get me started on the pain that epilogue inflicted on me. CoHF was good too, I just think I’m Team TID more than I am Team TMI. 🙂

Better final epilogue: City of Heavenly Fire or Clockwork Princess?

Oh look there’s a whole question dedicated to the epilogue! I didn’t even realise. Well, you know my answer already, the ending of Clockwork Princess was AMAZING. Which means it was the most beautiful part of The Infernal Devices, yet the tears, ugh the tears. Cassandra Clare is one cruel author. Even if Will did die of old age. It was still painful.

I can see Clockwork Princess right next to me on my bookshelf and I’m really tempted to reread the epilogue but I’m not sure if should..it’s just too sad!


Results

Okay so the final results are:

6.5 – 3.5

Looks like TID wins by 2.5 points! Just like I predicted. Like Shannon @ Clockwork Bibliophile said in her post, TID is definitely the superior series. It just had that much more feels in it, you know? But by the angel, I loved doing that tag! It was super fun! ➰


I’m not going to tag anyone specific seeing as I’m not sure who has read Cassie’s books and who hasn’t, so if you want to do this tag please feel free to do so! Just put your link down in the comments, as I’d love to read your post!!

10 Facts About Harry Potter #5

I think it’s about time that I did another 10 Facts About Harry Potter – don’t you? It’s been a while since I last did one, which is a pity as I really enjoy HP Trivia. I have written four other Ten Facts About HP, which you can read over here

This Ten Facts is pretty exciting, as it will total my facts to 50 overall, counting all 5 of my posts. However, having already written 40 facts, I have to really dig further through the hidden depths of the Potterverse to find some more trivia. 

Therefore, I’d love to hear any facts about Harry Potter that YOU have. It could be something you read about online, a fact you found out in Warner Bros Studio/Universal, or just some really interesting trivia you know! Just drop a comment below, and I’ll feature some of the facts that appear in the comments in my next post! Thanks, and I hope you enjoy Ten Facts About Harry Potter #5!

  1. Ron’s Patronus is a Jack Russel Terrier. Pretty cool, seeing as Jack Russel Terriers have a reputation for chasing otters…which as you may or may not know is Hermione’s Patronus. I’m not a Ronmione shipper, but you have to admit that this is pretty cute.
  2. J.K Rowling herself was actually sorted into Hufflepuff, on her Pottermore quiz. 
  3. When the Death Eaters originally formed, they were actually called the Knights of Walpurgis. Ehh…I’m not sure, I think Death Eaters has a better ring to it, don’t you?
  4. (This isn’t really a fact, more of a theory-kinda thing, but it was soo interesting I just HAD to feature it here!) Evans, as in Lily Evans, is almost Snape backwards, right? The only real thing preventing it from being Snape backwards is the letter ‘P’ or the ‘V’. And if you remember, the only people keeping Snape from being with Lily was Voldemort – ‘V’ for Voldemort – and James Potter – ‘P’ for Potter. Pretty cool, huh?
  5. J.K. didn’t just choose Kings Cross as the Hogwarts station for any old reason. Kings Cross has a special meaning to her, it was the place where her mother and her father first met, aged 18. To her, Kings Cross is one of the most magical, romantic places.
  6. As a child, J.K Rowling was good friends with the children of a family with the surname Potter. She’d always loved the surname Potter. She often got teased for the surname Rowling and people would call her nicknames – such as ‘rolling pin’, and she’d preferred the name Potter much more than Rowling.
  7. Throughout the films, three different owls played the role of Hedwig – Gizmo, Ook and Sprout. 
  8. In the movie of the Philosopher’s Stone, Harry loses a chocolate frog, because it jumps out of the window. In the epilogue of the Deathly Hallows, a chocolate frog is seen climbing through a window.
  9. At the end of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, after the credits roll out, you can see a little disclaimer saying – ‘No dragons were harmed in the making of this movie’.
  10. JKR was originally planning to kill off Ron, but she decided to let him live, as a reward for Harry.

Hope you enjoyed my fifth Ten Facts About Harry Potter!

Bet You Didn’t Notice – 5. My Fan Theories about Wren from Lady Midnight

So, when I was flicking through Lady Midnight looking for quotes, I came across this one, which made me stop in my tracks.

“Kit noticed an odd drawing on the back of her hand, a symbol like lines of water running underneath a flame”
Lady Midnight, Cassandra Clare

This I found odd. Lines of water running underneath a flame……. It sounds a bit like the poem. “First the flame and then the flood”. I think there might be something dodgy about Wren. She played too big a part in the intro not to re-appear. And those doodles on her hand make me suspect she’s not as pleasant as she seems.

I mean, the way she ran away when the Shadowhunters arrives was rather suspicious. And no one knows her real name.

I think maybe she’s gonna come back as someone dodgy, and when she does, I think they’ll be a big betrayal for Kit.

I have literally this second had a thought. Wren is a normal mundane who has been taught magic by an unnamed warlock. What if the unnamed warlock was Malcom????? Then maybe Wren would have some sort of allegiance to him, except now he’s dead, to Annabel Lee????????

I think I’m on to something.

What do you think?

Do you think Wren will re-appear?

Do you think Wren is evil?

Do you think the warlock was Malcom?

And do you think Wren will help Annabel Lee?

I think I may have just cracked something. Cassie- we’re onto you!

Bet You Didn’t Notice – 4. Harry Potter Films Voldemort Nose

We all know that Voldie has no nose in the films. Rose took his nose I suppose. (Gettit? Rose was Harry’s dad, but the random crank in The Maze Runner had his nose taken by someone called Rose).

However not many people notice that Voldemort had a nose in the first movie.

According to my friend Tabby, perhaps Voldemort’s soul has a nose, despite the fact his real self doesn’t.

But I think Warner Bros just decided that that Voldemort wasn’t scary enough and he’d be scarier blue and with no nose. Personally I don’t find smurfs that scary, but Warner Bros obviously had a thing against them.

Also, may I say that in the books, Voldemort had scarlet (aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa fangirling attack fangirling attack. My iPad just autocorrected scarlet to the name Scarlet (with a capital S) just like Scarlet from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. Now boy is that a good book. You can check out our review for it here (Cinder is the first book by the way) and I seriously recommend reading it as it is amazing) eyes. Where did they go? That could have taken him to a whole new level of scary.
