So now that THAT'S over...

Tamiki: yaY! chARaCtEr COnvO!
Crystal: Yes, wonderful use of the caps key. 
Tamiki: Just what I do.
Akov: Along with many other things...
Crystal: Oh? Like what?
Tamiki: Like this! *throws pie at Icewolf, who is just coming in*
Icewolf: *dodges and throws a hammer back* Hello to you too. Have you guys seen Inny?
Akov: I think he's observing your little brother.
Icewolf: You mean X-filer? Why-
Akov: No freaking idea.
Crystal: They were trying to 're-bond' after X-filer got over his jealousy. 
Tamiki: Jealousy? *snicker*
Icewolf: Yeah, apparently X-filer was-
Inora: Jealous of my awesomeness! 
Icewolf: I'm sure he was. No, he just didn't like the fact that I came up with someone more epic than he is. 
Tamiki: But he gets points for being a realworld being. 
Inora: And we don't get points for being blogworld beings?
Crystal: Not really, no. 
Inora: Well we should! 
Tamiki: If we did you'd get -50. 
Inora: And you'd get -700
Akov: Well, anyhow- 
X-filer: Yellow. What's the conversation?
Inora: We are discussing what blogworld being points we get vs realworld being points.
Icewolf: Sorry, you wouldn't understand. Just say something that totally drives this conversation into a ditch like you always do.
X-filer: ChEEse iTS. 
Crystal: Lovely. 
Tamiki: *om nom nom*
X-filer: Oh, so we have a little ms. proper there!
Crystal: Excuse me, I was designed to destroy any form of organization. I HATE organization. 
X-filer: I WOVE YEW! 
Crystal: I'm also trained in the ninja arts, I'm a mutant with wings, and can change my appearance at will, and kick your butt if you try to come NEAR me. 
X-filer: BIRDDDDS! (gak, typo)
Crystal: Icewolf, can I go back into the recesses of your mind?
Icewolf: Erm, no.
Crystal: Mrph. 
Inora: YO! Wazup brotha?
X-filer: INNNEH! *voice crack*
Inora: Oh great. You call me those horrid names too?
Icewolf: Why not? It's sooo KEWT! *heheh...inneh...*
Inny: HEY! Don't type my name like that!
X-filer: Heheheeee.
Icewolf: GET OWF MUH KEYBOARD! *shoves him away*
Inora: You did that?! Fiend.
X-filer: I didn't!
Icewolf: *evil grin* Muh keyboard.
Tamiki: Gar you. 
X-filer: Who are you?
Icewolf: He's magical.
X-filer: MaGICaL?! Like...HARRY pOttER MaGIcAl or...MAGicAL magICal?
Tamiki: Like this kinda magic *shut X up*
Akov: Nice one.

Tips on clay

I decided to just give some tips about clay. Just in case any of you wanted to know. ;) I'm no expert on it, but I hope to take a class in it next year!

1.) The most important thing to know is that clay is a very temperamental element. Do one thing wrong and everything can blow up in your face. That's why each of these tips are VERY important.

2.) The first thing you need to do with your clay is what is called 'wedging'. You take the amount of clay you want to use, and throw it (not too hard or it will get cracks) on a surface into a cube shape repeatedly. This gets rid of any air bubbles. I recommend doing this for at least 5- maybe not even 10 minutes. But if you feel like there are still air bubbles in the clay, keep wedging. If there is even the smallest air bubble in the clay, it will explode when it is firing.

3.) Scoring and slipping. If you have two pieces you want to attach (ex. Girnio's tail to his body) then you do what is called scoring and slipping. Scoring means you take a sharp tool and slash small lines on the areas you are going to connect. Slipping is the 'glue'. Basically it is liquid clay - clay mixed with a lot of water. You dab your finger in the slip and apply it to the scored areas, then attach them. This is to ensure that they will stick together. Then take a flat-edged tool and smooth the attached pieces to make it look like it's one thing.

4.) Usually you'll need to hollow out your sculpture. Once you are done, take your piece and hollow out the bottom. I really don't know why, but it is essential! All of my pieces (spare Ginny and Girnio's book, because they're small enough to get away with) are hollowed out on the bottom.

And that's about all I remember. If you ever want to do this at home, find somebody with some knowledge close to you.

Alright, I want to bring up a safety issue. Scezzle, this is for you. I don't want to mom anyone, but this is a really serious topic to me.

Never, under any circumstance, not even if you have been blogging for YEARS, give any personal information about yourself. It's very dangerous. You know why? You never really know the true face behind someone's profile. Now, I'm not saying I don't trust any of you! No, I really do, and that's why I'm still blogging. But I am not comfortable handing out my personal information because in the wrong hands my life as it is would be risked. I won't go into details about it, but some creepers take advantage of the blogging world. Just please, don't go sharing any personal information. I don't need it, and bad people do.

Scezzle, as of now I don't think giving your age would harm you, but just be warned that giving information about yourself is as dangerous as playing with a forest fire.

Thanks for reading,

Girnio's story

So one day, I was sitting in my normal art class seat, and I turn my head to watch one of my friends open a cupboard. Now in that particular cupboard was where my dragons are kept until I glaze them or something like that, but I didn't really process that. I saw two beautiful dark dragon wings in the shadows of the cupboard before she shut the door. I thought to myself, "Oh, someone else made a dragon too. They must've made a better one than I did." But the next day, I open it to see the dragon that was better than mine when I let out a gasp.

It was Girnio, glazed and boasting a proud look on his muzzle. He had flaws, yes, but they were beautiful flaws.

I glanced around, looking for the other dragon that I thought would be the better one. But Girnio was sitting in the exact spot that I had seen those two wonderful wings.

Girino: Hrrr!

And that is his story! I was so surprised and laughed at the irony. Ah well.

Dragon Update:
GIRNIO IS OUT! He's glazed and everything and he is fabulous! As promised, here he is...

The others are not yet glazed, but Girnio is right now here with me.

Okay, so I wanted to do a little devotional. I know some of you skip this (I am MAGIC like that), but don't for this, for it does apply to everyday life of the average teen.

Psalm 42: 1-4
(1) As the deer longs for streams of water
so I long for you, O God
(2) I thirst for God, the living God.
When can I go and stand before him?
(3) Day and night I only have tears for food,
While my enemies continually taunt me, saying
"Where is this God of yours?"
(4) My heart is breaking
as I remember how it used to be.
I walked among the crowds of worshipers,
leading a great procession to the house of God.
Singing for joy and giving thanks
amids the sound of a great celebration

Doing my nightly devotions, this jumped out at me as a teen. Especially the last line of verse 3 "Where is this God of yours?" You could almost hear the scorn and the pain David bore. I was moved by these words, connecting on a whole new level. This isn't only in my life, but in every Christian's life. But when I read God's word, I feel safe again. I long for God to reach for me and touch my life, and He does! He's there for me and I know I love Him. If we go farther down Psalm 42 to verse 8 it says this:

(8) But each day the Lord pours his
unfailing love upon me,
and through each night I sing his songs,
praying to God who gives me life.

Each day. Unfailing. Not just for one day until you slip up, for forever.

~love, Icewolf

So I wrote a short story (arg, JK just pissed me off again!) and I'm wondering whether to enter it to a short story contest or not. So here, enjoy and tell me what you think!


A long serpentine body sliced through the water. She was like no other sea creature, for she had a certain kind of grace and beauty to her. To people she looked like a sea monster from all their stories, but to the fish in the sea she looked to them the sea goddess of their own stories. She had a long thin body that ended in an oar-like and slightly transparent fin. Her scales were a blue-green and her eyes shone a mysterious blue. A crown-like fin donned her head, and had only two forelegs that she usually kept to her sides as to not hinder her flight in the water.
            Another creature descended the sky above her watery kingdom. He was as black as the night sky, with the starlight captured in his own eyes. His preferred the air to the sea, and kept aloft on large wings. He had a shorter body than the sea goddess, and unlike her he only had two hind legs. A long curling tail steered him through the sky over the waters, and his wedge-like head looked deep into its depths. He located the sea goddess and let out a long, pleading screech.
            The sea goddess flicked her back fin to halt, and she turned to the surface. The voice she had just heard was a divine one, one of authority. Cautiously she poked her head out of the water. She trilled an inquiring note, asking this creature what he had come to her for. In reply the creature gave an answering low note, and knowledge flooded the sea goddess.
            He was a darkling, a servant of the being called Darkness and his mate Nightmare. Darkness wished to make a pact with the sea, to have a friendship. The darkling suggested to please Darkness and accept the pact the sea goddess should offer it a rare gift that only the sea could yield. The sea goddess chirped in understanding, and plunged back into the sea to find one of her most valuable possessions, a magical dark pearl.
            The darkling waited patiently, hovering over the water. He never tired, but being in daylight did seem to make him drowsy. He didn’t particularly like going out in the daytime, but this pact was of the utmost urgency. Darkness was fascinated by the mysteries of the sea and wanted to learn more about it through the sea goddess. But even though it didn’t seem that important to the darkling himself, if it was pleasing to his master it would be pleasing to him as well. But did he have to go by day, was his only question. All the way here he had been hunted by men out of their fear of the unknown. The darkling kept glancing at the shore nearby, hoping they hadn’t followed him.
            Upon his fifth glance, a speck in the distance grew to more specks. Soon, around fifty specks were in the sight of the darkling. They came closer to reveal human men, screaming with what they thought was bravery – to kill a new beast instead of trying to learn from it.
            The darkling panicked. He couldn’t leave for risking the confusion and anger of the sea goddess, but neither could he stay for he was in firing range of their strange weapons. In his indecision he let out a terrified howl. He was certainly going to die if the sea goddess didn’t come soon.
            The sea goddess, on her way to the surface, heard the cry of the darkling and realized something was amiss. The darkling was in danger that much she knew, so she clutched the dark pearl close, momentarily forgetting its magical abilities and propelled herself faster. She threw herself from the water and collided with the darkling.
            The dark pearl’s magic activated. A dark flash consumed the two creatures, and the men on the shore halted, witnessing the result of two entities and one pure dark pearl. The creature of darkness and air combined with the creature of water and light.
            Then, hovering above the water was the ultimate servant of Darkness. It had long black wings that seemed to swallow the sky, a huge slender body, and a long tail that whipped the sea into waves that crashed into the men. A diamond-shaped head opened its jaws and roared in its newfound power and majesty. Far above the earth, Darkness smiled, for he had foreseen this and that is why he had sent the darkling on his mission with the wrong reason. The combination of a dark pearl and two creatures resulted in something far more valuable to him.
            The first dragon. 

And yush, I did change the background. Isn't it neat? I was trying to look for something Christmas-y, but alas, none worked. 

Dragon update:
None really. I can't glaze Ginny until after my Thanksgiving break, and Girnio is waiting to be fired, and Gareth is still waiting for when our class get around to glazing. :P 

Anyhow, see you for now blogworld!

More Inny, and more confusion

The top one is for ICF, which is coming in April 2011! Be excited people! And the bottom one was the finished one that my friend did for me (I wish I had that kind of skill).

Inora: *blushing fiercely* *silent*
Icewolf: Hm? Are you okay?
Tamiki: *laughs, walking in* I bet he is.
Inora: You don't know me!
Tamiki: The harmonic werewolf speaks.
Icewolf: Speaking of, where is Kovvie? I miss him, and he hasn't shown himself for the last few posts.
Crystal: *enters* Beats me. He's sulking somewhere I guess.
Icewolf: *suddenly pulls away from characters*

I can't talk with them anymore. I'm too pissed. JKshooterman (I hate his screen name with a passion) thinks that he can just boot me off cause I am on at this time every night. This is the ONLY time I have, every minute that goes by, I can't save or take back - it's GONE. La di da if he wants to make a stupid video. La di freaking da if he thinks he's better than me because I refused him rights to the computer. *starts fuming* At least X-filer understands to the very slightest degree.

This is MY time.

Arg. I'm too angry now. Sorry, blogworld. Sorry characters.
Inora: *softly* It's okay.
Tamiki: Yeah, really. Just go blow off some steam before you really do some damage
Crystal: Can I be in charge while you're gone?
Icewolf: *sigh* whatever. If you see Kovvie tell him to quit sulking.

Signed with barely controlled anger,

Dragon Update:
Girnio- Man, I have to get used to typing his name, I keep wanting to write it 'Grinio', but is a totally different sense from Girnio. Anyway, he's glazed and I'm not sure if he's in the kiln yet, but I can't wait to finally see him!

Gareth- Now his name I can type easy, due to reading it a lot in Time Cat! It was such a great name and it fits him. I need to come up with his personality, and I have a feel for it, but I'm not quiet sure. He isn't glazed, but he's fired up so he's ready to get glazed. Since I have three dragons and my classmates only have one animal, I'm doing the two that were on my free time on my own time and doing him (which was my school project, thus he's bigger) when everyone else is glazing theirs.

Ginny- She made it out okay! The exploding clay didn't touch her, and I feel really bad for the person whose project was destroyed. I know that if mine had, I would be crushed, but maybe that's because I worked hard and put a bit of me into my dragons. I haven't glazed her, and she's the smallest yet, so she should be easy. I think I'm going to glaze her Tuesday after school.

Alright, I mentioned 'sense' up in Girnio's update. I guess I better explain it better, huh? Well, sometimes I just sort of feel or (my word for it) sense things. Not much else I can describe it as. Like, have you ever just simply known something, or felt like something was simply right? It's what it's like. I call it my sense. Like the sense of Girnio is playful and helpful. Gareth's sense is...wavy, but that's probably because I can't quiet place him yet until it feels right to set his personality in clay. Ginny's sense is bright and shining. Sometimes I sense colors of something, like 'Inora' is a grey-red-blue-green-purple. There's always a mix, and never a solid color.

Weird, huh? Confusing, right? Well, don't worry. Now that you sorta know, you won't be too lost.

*tilts head back and forth* I don't know what else....OH! Okay, so my friend offered to draw Inny for me, and she did AMAZING! I picniked it a little, and it turned out AWESOME.

Didn't she do a FANTASTIC job?
Inora: Yeah, I look great. As always.
Icewolf: *giggles* Don't forget this was a trail run for her, so she's doing a final EPIC copy.
Inora: I know, I'm excited.
Icewolf: I don't know how she could do better than this!

Anyhow, I have been drawing him lately as well. I drew a Christmas one, and one of him and my brother. Yeah...X-filer is a bit jealous of Inora cause I might like Inny better...heh heh....

Okay, I went to see Harry Potter.

Epic. Hilarious. Not much of a plot, but it was made up for in slight comedy. The whole theater was giggling. I won't ruin it for you in any detail, in case you're going to go see it, but I will say that my favorite lines were this:

Hermione: Take it off, Harry!
Harry: *pauses, glaring*
Hermione: Take it off now!
Harry: *grumbles, takes of Horcrux*

*laughs* At first everyone was thinking, "Whoa, Hermione, aren't you going with Ron?" That's what I was thinking the whole movie! Are they trying to get it to look like Harry is going to be with Hermione? Cause let me tell you, there were a few times I was wondering what the movie people are thinking.

Alright. See you late blogworld!

Still wobbling and no fall pictures

I know, bummer, huh? My mom thinks I'm going on withdraw from frappichinoes. And I think, 'well, if I'm going to have a withdraw on anything, it better be frappes huh?' I miss the wonderful sweet coffee.

Anyhow, let me ask you, what is great about the number 12? Nice even number. Zwolf (German for 12, only it has the two little dots on top of the 'o').

I now have twelve Yu-Gi-Oh books. ~yay!~ And this has more of the Pharaoh so ~double yay!~

And I sorta logged on late (due to my brother I might add),s so I gots to go. :(

Wobbling on my feet and fall pictures

All day my head has been very light and pounding. You know the feeling when you stand up and all the blood rushes to your head and you feel dizzy? I feel like that...every TIME I do something fast. Bleh.

And lately I've been taking  some pictures of my fall scenery, and here's what I've come up with! Mostly of my tree in the front yard...

The top on is my favorite. :D

Dragon update:
Girnio is glazed! He need to be fired once more, and then he's done! He is officially my decision/mood/thought dragon. He basically puts things into words. Give him your mind, he'll help you write it. Gareth (my black dragon) I have no idea what kind of dragon he is, but I know it has something to do with the ankh shape on his forehead. Gareth is done firing, and yet needs to be glazed. My last dragon, Ginny, is firing right now, and I'm worried because my art teacher said she heard something explode (air bubbles, and if you don't know anything about clay, ask me in comments, otherwise, I'm not going to go into it) while it was drying in the kiln, and I dearly hope my Ginny wasn't mauled and/or the one that exploded.

Oh, and the reason I'm posting longer is ~ta da~ due to my obeying to the law I asked for an extension of 8-9pm! I now have an hour of free time! ~WIN~

So from now on, Icewolf is fully back! Well, if I'm not here at 8-9 that sucks for me...cause I don't get that time back. Once it's gone, it is GONE.

Anyway, I have a question, what is this NaNo that I keep hearing about?

That's all for now!

Now back in the blogworld,
Icewolf and characters

Inora: Oh, now you mention us at the end!
Icewolf: Look at the last two lines! It is a sign of me going OFF.
Inora: So-

*scream* *wither*

*bows in shame* *again*

I was busy all week with theater...I was doing mics for my little brother's play, and also was trying out for the next play in my school...and I'm excited...wait...*checks website*

I got a small part. Slight bummer, but hey, at least I got a part.

So I've been going crazy all week with all my characters bottled up in my mind *glares at Inora especially*

Inora: Hey, spare me. I act on impulse.
Icewolf: As I've seen...
Crystal: May I bomb something now?
Akov: I'll join you!
Icewolf: No! Bombing is not a normal pass-time.
Tamiki: *wanders in, noming a cookie* Since when have we been defined as normal
Icewolf: Heh...*glances at blog title* That's funny.
Tamiki: What was?
Icewolf: Nothing

Anyhow...update on my clay dragons (which are a major part of my brain process right now ((that and a certain person, that I shall not name))):
Two are in the kiln, probably done firing right now and cooling off. The third was created this week.
The first one I made I plan to make him blue with yellow eyes, naming him Girnio.
The second it HUGE, and he is Gareth, black with an ankh shape on his forehead.
The third is a small dragon, green, violet eyes (though closed), named Ginny.

I'm excited for them. Well, I'm back blogworld! Missed you!

Drying Knives

Scares me. Especially our butcher knife. I'm freaked out whenever it's my turn to dry.

Anyhow, just wanted to say this:

Sunday morning I lug myself out of bed.
I throw on clothes and go to church.
And this is what hit me:

"More people are coming out of the closet than trying to clean it."

Amen, I thought, thinking of my daily surroundings at school. Gays and Lesbians pop up everywhere, leaving me little room to say right out that I'm straight. It's become a trend in America to like the same *shudder* gender as yourself. Gross. Ew.

We need God in America.
