I've lately been singing this to myself a lot...

:O I love singing this one, but it does tend to make me cry. I think it was the first song I ever performed in front of people (outside of school, anyway) too. I was about 7 :')

Don't worry, we're very relaxed about necroposting :)

The last book I read was Zen Cho's Sorceror to the Crown, which is a sort of Victoriana-themed magicians-and-faery book. It was well written, though it sort of threw me that there was a pseudo-Victoriana in the writing style itself - it was kept extremely verbose throughout, which I assume was to keep it in-theme, though the plot was so thoroughly un-Victorian (and in a good way) that it jarred a little. I think Zen Cho actually lives in London, but it nonetheless felt like a slightly international view of how England is (which is to say, divided between "London" and "The Countryside Which Has Funny Named Places In It") - so there were a couple of things like that which made me feel a bit like I was in a rather "thin" sort of Victoriana setting, which was a pity in some ways as the faery stuff was really nicely done and she's clearly got a great talent for world-building, so adding depth to the human world would've been nice. It was a very neat plot, anyhow, and tied together very nicely, and it dealt with societies and the importance (or not) of The Rules and of bureaucracy-politics in a way which appealed to me. It examined the differences between human and faery moralities in an interesting way, too, which I liked. Would recommend, anyway, if sorcerors with complex relations with their familiars and victorian gentlemen having to seek audiences with fairy kings and so on is up your alley.

SotK bought me that one for Christmas, yet to read it though :)

...I guess everyone else will have to get llamas instead.

Do I get to be represented, and can it be by ducklings and/or soup dragons?  :P

I'm currently in a constant Lana Del Rey kinda mood.

Depends on how much of a Labyrinth (as in, the 1986 film) fan you are, but I read Wintersong last year, and got the sequel Shadowsong just after it came out a few months ago. I absolutely loved Wintersong, haven't read Shadowsong yet because oh my goodness did I ever experience such emotional turmoil at the hands of a novel. xD

Hahaha, I enjoy this :D

I enjoyed it, but I wouldn’t rush to see it again. I don’t think I’d’ve liked it much if it wasn’t for the music and choreography.

Thank you :)

We saw The Greatest Showman on Tuesday. I’m thinking of covering ‘Never Enough’ from that next maybe :)

Ooh, I like these, especially The Wolf. :)

I've seen this on Facebook as the 7/7 challenge - I was actually tagged and partaking was actually rather anxiety inducing.

You post the first 7 lines of a work in progress and tag 7 others to do the same. I figured I'd start a thread and then anyone can partake. :)

Here is what I posted - I have no idea where this piece is going to be honest - I might post some more excerpts of it in another thread (you know, the bits that I don't read back and cringe at myself :P)

‘Come now, you’re never too old for games.’
Lisette stared, unable to form words in her mouth.
He simply smirked, eyes menacing. Lisette dropped her gaze, took a deep breath, and forced her eyes to meet his once more.
‘Who are you? Wh-‘
His eyes seemed to flash and she felt her cheeks flush.
‘Oh Lisette, you know very well who I am.’

I thought I'd post this here in a new thread seeing as I really hope to do more covers in the future :)

I uploaded a cover of Life on Mars the other day (done in one take, so my voice does crack a few times and there's also the sound of a nightingale at the end of the second verse - I really liked that though so that definitely contributed to the single take. That and the fact it was 10pm. :P)

The picture is one of our wedding photos - it's my bridal bouquet. :)
