Writers Block, What a Drag!

Yep, just as the title says, I've got Writer's Block! That means that I cant continue on my novel. ^_^;

My Cousins, Keys and May were with me when we visited our new school and we get NETBOOKS! :D YES!

But Keys and I were chatting and suddenly the idea for a story popped up! Yes, one door closed (for my novel) and another opened! The concept is rather interesting and I'd like to write this one full out when I finish the first draft of my novel. But be warned, the prologue is rather confusing! I'm also kinda confused, but I'm working on it in my head! Here you go, introducing...


Author Note:  This is a work of fiction taking place in a fictional fantasy world parallel to our own. The story takes place at a private school where students are being used as experiments and are deciding to defend themselves and free themselves from a corrupted school environment and future life of becoming human weapons.  It's about the triumph of free will and the right to choose your own path in life.  Please do not take this work of fiction seriously.  I actually like school and this is not intended as a diatribe directed towards education or any schools, administrators or students in particular.  Phew!  With that said, let's continue, shall we?

Prologue
The Prophecy

I never imagined that the world could grow so cold. That it could all go horribly wrong. I guess Jim was right.
Never trust them. He had said, before they took him away. I can still remember his cool look as he was called to the Office.
He told me to never give up. Never stop resisting, to earn the right to my name, to keep the others from falling down. I can still see Joe's look when he heard that his brother had been taken. That look of horrified determination, it was then that I realized he had a stout heart. We all did.
Maybe that's why the universe decided to play pin-the-most-troubles-on-the-kids-who-lady-luck-went-hooky-on. Maybe that's why I'm going through with such an idiotic idea. By the elements this is such a horrible idea. Maybe it's so mad that it'll actually work.
As I walked down the halls, memories flash before my eyes. Lilly – my dear flower- laughing at some dumb joke Jay had said one time in the dorm, of Jim and Joe bent over the computer we had salvaged, making plans, Ichigo – the lazy strawberry – munching on some pretzel sticks dipped in pink strawberry flavored yogurt, reading a comic book about a girl who learned Magic while catching sentient cards that she had let loose on accident by stumbling upon her teacher, a stuffed bear and his Book of Magic.
All these memories and more flew past my eyes as I pushed open the doors to the Office.
The Principal spun around his chair to see who had entered and smirked as he saw me. “Ah, so the Sword is ready to lay down the arms and give up?”
I said nothing, but inwardly I was seething. How dare this man speak to me so calmly when he had wrecked our lives, had torn families apart! Eventually I spoke, my voice laced with ice. “I hate you.”
The Principal smiled. “Hate is such a strong word, Ken.”
Gritting my teeth I closed my eyes, then snapped them open in a blank stare that caused the Principal to freeze. “The Blackbirds will flock from their nest to defeat the ones who stole their Hearts, with the new Raven at the lead, leading the way to Tao, the way of Change and War. The elements that they will become. Sun and Moon, Dawn and Dusk, Day and Night. And all that go under them; Fire, Ice, Wind, Steel, Water, Light, Darkness, Lightning, Earth, Wood, Destiny and Time. Take heed and listen to this cry, woe to them who steel the Blackbird's Hearts, for it will end in destruction for all who defile their purity.”
The Principal laughed waving the warning away like it was an annoying gnat. “Do you really think that a little fib will stop the Operation?” he leveled a glare at me, eyes narrowed, “Don't waste your breath. Take him away, I have heard enough of this.”
When it starts coming true it won't just be a fib, Principal. Just wait.” I said calmly as the secretaries led me away into the unknown.
But I didn't fear the unknown for I had just delivered the two sided blade that could aid to either the Raven or the Crows. For me, I was on the top of the world. I knew that Joe had heard every word and had written it all down. It was a morsel of hope in the starvation of despair and that bit of hope tasted great.



That's the first chapter, and it leaves alot of questions unawnsered! (like it's supposed to!) Now I've got a Writing Prompt for ya all: What is the Operation and what could it mean, write what you think!

Take me to...

Okay, over the weekend me and my family went to visit Grandma Rock. My Grandma is really fun. But that's not what I wanna talk about!

On the car ride up my little bro was watching Rio, one of the more cuter movies I've seen. Though I really don't like the mean cockatoo (or his song). Some of my favorite songs are:

Hot Wings (I Wanna Party)




Real in Rio




and Fly Love.




But what I really like is all of the Brazilian beats.

My Mama and Poppa met in Brazil. It's really romantic because my Mama was about to be kicked out (she got the date on her pasport thingy wrong ^_^; oopsie!) and Poppa convinced them to let her stay some how. I could say that the rest was history. Though they didn't start dating 'till they got back to the states.

And now, we wanna go back! Yep that's right, we wanna make it come full circle. But notice the WANT. We don't know if we even can right now! But my Poppa just got a new job and it's a huge step towards our goal.

Thanks to you Rio I really don't mind if I leave to Brazil! After all I've heard about Brazil I'm ready to pack up and leave! ....Though I would miss my friends at home here in the States...That's what video chat thingies were made for! and emails too! It'll at least be an adventure if it happens. ^_^

M.S.

Writing Prompt: You are stranded on a desert island, write how you would get off or even how you'd stay alive while waiting on rescue!

Harry Potter: End of the Saga


~ Mama Stone here:  The year Mira was turning 11, she was convinced an owl would bring her her letter of acceptance into Hogwarts.  Months ahead of time we tried to tell her that it might not happen because her parents are Muggles after all.  Still, she kept hoping.   And her birthday came.   And went.  Without her letter.  Now we think the reason her letter didn't come can be found within this song :




Did you catch the reason?   


Mira: Woah! It's turning out my blog is a co-production with Mama!

Well anyways, I used to be really obsessed with Harry Potter. And I will admit, I still kinda am. But not as much as I was when I was eleven. That was crazy. It's kinda sad that Harry Potter has ended officially. They need to make a movie where it focuses on the Next Generation, that'd be nice! But I've seen alot of fanfics of Harry Potter and I really enjoy those so, oh well, I'll just read someone else's version of what will happen until then! =^_^=

The last movie was really great, especially the special effects. They made it feel like you were actually there, my recommendation, GO SEE IT! But in conjuction w/ the first Deathly Hallows movie.



Writing prompt:  You find yourself getting a letter on your birthday, but here is the exception:  You are there from a separate dimension to protect Harry Potter by request from Dumbledore, your tale must take place during Order of the Phoenix.

Have fun!

An Introduction Of Sorts

Hi there! My name is Mira Stone and this is my blog.

I'm interested in a lot of things, anime, manga, books, and writing to name a few. But you'll find my interest on a certain one thing will wax and wane depending on my mood. But those that I named are more of my consistent interests especially writing.

I'm a teen who could possibly be classified as a “nerd” as I'm not really that much of a jock. I really don't like playing sports and I'm rather forgetful. I swear, I can't remember what I did yesterday! ^_^;.

I'm the oldest kid in my family and my little bro is about nine years younger than me. I remember freaking out when he was born, running to one side of the room to the other yelling, “He's born! He's born! I'm a big sister!” I was an only child for a LONG time obviously.

I'm also kinda random, get really hyper and squeal like the stereotype fan girl that I am. You'll find that I act a lot like the fan girls in manga and anime though I don't really chase after guys like a maniac. I just tend to get really hyper and fidgety when I get a new manga. ...it's weird. And I will shriek “Kawaii!” when no one's around and it's a really cute scene. And I'll randomly spout out Japanese words that make no sense to the situation, much to the irritation of my friends.

I love drawing anime/manga though I'm best at the face and not the rest of the body. -_-; 

Soo, that's me as I see myself as of now! You never know when your perception of you will change! 

Ja Ne!
