    Aha! My creative juice fountain is flowing again! I have material!

    Amberley’s PoV

    I stared curiously at the three new girls. The first one, Mercedes, was about fifteen, with long golden-blonde hair, and deep blue eyes. Gabi was was about eighteen, with auburn hair, Lia about a year younger, with blue eyes and blond hair. All three had weapons, like everyone else except me and Emberyn, I noted wryly.

    “So what do the grown-ups think we should do?” asked Hermione.

    “Well,” Rupert began, but he was cut off by a song: Reel Around the Sun. My cousin Aisling’s ringtone.

    I stared at Emberyn incredulously.

    “How is Aisling calling me? I thought we couldn’t contact anyone outside of the Castle?”

    Emberyn shook his head and shrugged. “Dunno, but you better answer her.”

    I pulled my phone out from my pocket and hit the answer button. Aisling’s face appeared on my screen. She was sitting on her beanbag chair, and from the sounds in the background, the gang was over. She grinned at me, blue-green eyes sparkling.

    “Hi Am! How’re you–whoa, where are you??? Is that a tapestry behind you? And stone? Are you in some sort of medieval castle?!”

    I sighed, and proceeded to explain everything to her. When I reached Macha, Aisling gasped and went pale, and I heard clattering in the background, followed by someone cursing in Gaelic. “You’re kidding me.”

    “I wish I was.”

    “So, where are all these people?”

    I turned the phone towards everybody and introduced them. When I turned the phone back to myself, several more people had appeared on the screen: mischievous Ruse, straight-laced Teaghan, shy Daisy, and bookish Shaye.

    “So, what’s your plan of attack?” asked Teaghan.

    “Some of us are going to try and find Macha’s lair. The others are going to infiltrate the library, and steal a book with information on Macha.”

    Aisling raised an eyebrow. “Well, I guess we can save you part of the trouble and tell you about Macha ourselves, including her weaknesses.”

    Silence covered the room as everyone turned to stare at the phone.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Aisling is my main character. That’s who my profile pic is. Just so y’all know, I haven’t gotten very far in my book yet, so I will just be using ideas for what happened in the book, not whatever is actually gonna happen. Aisling is a selkie, so she knows her myths, which is probably how Amberley knows so much about Celtic legends… Hopefully this gets the story rolling again.

    *Creeps into room* *sits down on beanbag* *a cloud of dust billows up* *coughs* *stares at abandoned room covered in dusty pages* *walks over and leaves a note on the table*

    Friends,

    When you get back from… Wherever you are (I myself have been adventuring in Natalia recently), please come here! We can not let this forum fall into the pit of abandoned forums!

    *facepalmfacepalmfacepalm*

    SO sorry!!! No one was posting, so I kind of. . . *ahem* forgot. *embarrassed grin*

    Oooh, I LOVE Natalia!! Heather and Picket are so fun. And Smalls. And Fleck Blackstar. And Massie Burnson. (assuming we’re both talking about The Green Ember Series XD)

    I’ve just discovered how amazing of an author Brandon Sanderson is (well. . . I’ve only read Skyward and Starsight so far, but STILL), and I need to check the review for his other books on PluggedIn to make sure that they’re the kind of thing that I’d be allowed to read.

    And I was doing Crazy Writing Week for the first time. And. . . I just realized that I don’t know if my team won yet. *shrugs* I’ll go check after I post this XD

     

    😱😱😱 *GASPPPPPP*  NO, WE CANNOT LET THIS THING DIE!!!! Hmmmmmmm

    *snaps fingers* We need to have a Macha attack. That’ll get this thing moving again.

    Now I just need to prep my brain to write for Rupert Greeves again XD

    Sorry I’ve been inactive! I was at camp, and then on vacation, and then I was sick, and then I was back at camp, and now we have my siblings’ birthday parties coming up so I’ve been a bit preoccupied.

    Anyways, I started reading the Wingfeather Saga, and you know near the beginning of the first book (spoiler?) where Leeli is singing to the sea dragons at the edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness? (spoiler? over) I got selkie vibes. I just imagined her singing voice similar to Saoirse’s from Song of the Sea. So I just thought that was kind of cool because our story includes selkie stuff.

    So is our Macha from Song of the Sea or is she the more hardcore pureblood Irish myth Macha/ Rupert’s Macha?

    Ahh!!!!!!!!!! Another TGE fan!

    *ahem*

    Sorry, but I really love The Green Ember series. A lot. And I love the characters a lot too (except Morbin *hisssss*). *thinks about Helmer* *sobs* And I haven’t read the books with Fleck Blackstar or Massie Burnson, or the ones focusing on Jo yet, but I plan to!

    And I think a Macha attack would be great! I mean, not for the characters. But plot wise…


    @winter_rose

    That’s so great that you started reading the Saga! And I totally agree about that scene giving off selkie vibes! And I think we’re using the Macha from Song of the Sea, right? *looks around room questioningly*
