Quote of the Week

Hurray For Grey Day.



Whatever. Not that you care. I know I don't. Anyways, I'm a grey girl Kougra. I'm not really sure what we're learning here, honestly. Every day, even Grey Day, is boring and drab for me. But nobody gives a rat's hat, so it doesn't matter. Anyways, let's just get this over with. Alright, now I'm going to teach you—wait—how to have f-fff-uunnn -shiver- on Grey Day? -Mumbles- I don't see how that's possible, but I'll give it a shot.

A Happy Neobuddy



Now I look back and ask myself, how many times have I, selfishly, asked for McGee's help? And how many times was he not there when I needed him? The answer to the first question is "many," and to the second is "none." I feel ashamed of exploiting my poor red eyed friend; how cruel I am.

"Twilight: A Faerie's Fall" by rainbow_daydreamer
Though she was only a few weeks old, Lumina loved to watch the stars at twilight. Like most of her kind, the little Faerie had come into being at the centre of Faerieland, on a beautiful summer's night.
