So I visited my old elementary school and the park right next to it tonight to see what shots I could get. It was so nostalgic. I spent so long living in my memories, I almost forgot to get pictures. lol. I visited at the prime time, about an hour before dark, so I didn't leave myself much time. Here's a few things I learned from this experience:
1. Playground equipment doesn't hold up for 15+ years if it's not taken care of.
2. Scout the site before you go to take pictures if possible, that way you can get right to work when the time comes.
3. iPhones can NOT take pictures in the dark. (I already knew this, but it got reinforced)
4. Taking pictures of something you have a personal connection to makes it more worthwhile.
5. Going back to revisit your old school is a really awesome experience. Unless it's your Jr. High, which is torn down and is now an empty field, then it just makes you feel empty inside. :(

So, Look for me to upload a few from this. I'll even share a night pic or 2, though those definitely won't be "featured." (Well...none of them are amazing shots, but w/e)
EDIT: Looking back, they all turned out fairly poorly. I'm gonna have to go back one of these evenings and try again.

Q and A Answers!

Tue Jun 30, 2015, 1:21 PM
Thanks to all of you who asked questions! Here's the answers:

Tom Hiddleston or Benedict Cumberbatch? Oh, I see that we're starting with the hard questions. Honestly, I have no idea! Well, Benedict rides a motorcycle, but on the other hand, there's this: [link] So I honestly don't know what to think. Ben? Or Tom? **** IT. I DON'T KNOW.

Adventure Time, Gravity Falls, or Regular Show? Adventure Time.

Do you watch Criminal Minds? If so who's your favorite character? And would you ever do a fanfiction for it? I've never watched Criminal Minds, but I've heard it's a good show. If I start watching it, I'll probably write a fanfiction for it :)

Would you prefer to be Sherlock's wife or daughter? Do you like to ask all the hard questions? Lol, just kidding. I would like to say wife, but that's really weird considering that I'm old enough to be his actual daughter... so I'll go with daughter. Then I can have the smart genes and solve crimes!

Marvel or DC? NOW YOU'VE GONE TO FAR. I can't choose between the Avengers and Batman!

Would you ever write any anime fanfiction? In the future, I probably would. I'm catching up on two anime shows right now - Black Butler and Ouran High School Host Club. (Those are very very different shows. I know.)

What is your favorite chatroom series to write? I love all of them, but I would have to go with the Avengers. There's so many characters I get to write, and Tony and Clint are REALLY fun to write.

Number one favorite superhero? Villain? Favorite villain: Loki. I'll agree that he's been in a lot, and I'd like to see other villains, but this: [link]was absolutely hilarious. Favorite superhero? Black Widow. I mean, have you seen Scarlett Johansson? Hehehe. And I know it's not in the question, but I'll mention my favorite antihero, too. Constantine.

Favorite cold beverage? Apple juice. Either that, or Jones soda. It's really hard to find, but it's the best soda I've ever had. 

Favorite pokemon? Mudkip!

So thanks for all the questions! You guys are awesome!



Finally I graduate from my elementary school P.S 153 and travel to another school. My experience in P.S 153 has been amazing, minus the bad times, and I am ready to go into a new school to continue my adventure! pinky pie party canon emoticon pinky pie party canon emoticon pinky pie party canon emoticon pinky pie party canon emoticon Pinkie Pie Haters gonna hate Pinkie Jump Pinkie pie (derping) plz Pinkie pie (i win) plz Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie Andrea Libman icon Crazy seizurish Twilight

  • No tagbacks.
  • Tag at least 10 people. (haha I'm a rulebreaker)
  • State 10 facts about yourself.
  • Answer the questions asked by the person who tagged you.
  • Ask 10 questions for the people you tag.
Okay, let's do this!

  • I'm (not-so-secretly) a nerd at heart. I have more comic books than actual novels, and I may or may not have a Pop! Vinyl figure collection.
  • I hope to become an author or a screenwriter one day. Not sure if that will ever happen, but I'll do my best. :)
  • I have never been in a relationship. *bursts into tears* Just kidding. But in all honesty, I've never been in one. I'm not afraid of commitment or anything, I just haven't met anyone who's worth dating.
  • One of my friends has given me the nickname of "Cas" (from the Supernatural character) (I'm looking at you, cielphantomhive9299)
  • I have watched many horror movies, but none have actually scared me. Tell me in the comments if there's any I should watch. (And yes, I have played Slenderman.)
  • I have the widest taste of music. I will listen to nearly anything. Rock, pop, punk rock, alternative... I also may have a secret love for jazz. Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin are fantastic. *Oh god! What am I saying? No one is supposed to know that!*
  • I was on the tennis team for my school for a few months, but I forfeited because of my right wrist. I think it's because I write too much. Seriously. I'm probably gonna get carpal tunnel when I'm 20 or something.
  • I know how to crack a bullwhip. (Indiana Jones style!)
  • I'm short. As in really short. When people complain about being 5'6? I'M 5'1. *bursts into tears again*
  • I'm a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes. I've watched the show and read all the books.
  • What is your favorite historical period, and why? (any time before you were born) Oh, so I can't say 2937? Just kidding. If I had to choose, it would be the 1940s. But sometime after the war - 1946, maybe. I love the music *cough* jazz *cough* and the clothing they were back then was awesome. If you don't believe me, watch ABC's Agent Carter. It's fantastic.
  • If you could be the personal assistant/protege to any writer, who would it be? Well, it would be really cool to work with John Green. He makes me laugh and cry, but his writing is brilliant. Either that or Mark Gattis/Steven Moffat. Then I could have BBC's Sherlock air before 2017. (I'm not making that up. They delayed it. Again.)
  • If you could have any extant animal as your sentient and telepathic familiar/sidekick/best friend, what would it be? A fox. Cause foxes are cute. Or maybe a panda bear...
  • You are a prison inmate, and you've been sent to solitary confinement for 12 weeks... who is your imaginary friend? The guy who escaped from Alcatraz. He can give me tips on how to escape. I ain't spending 12 weeks in prison! Hell no!
  • What is your favorite cold beverage? Apple juice.
  • Favorite myth, fable, fairy tale, or religious story? Well, I find paranormal stories really interesting. I'm not sure if they're real or not, but they're definitely intriguing, so something along those lines, probably.
  • In what manner did the first main character you've ever killed off die? Well, I've never actually killed off one of my characters. *John Green bursts into tears* Yet. It's okay, John. Don't worry. It will happen soon. (John: *phew* I was worried for a second.) The closest I've gotten was shooting my main detective, Hailey. She's in a coma, but wakes up about two weeks later.
  • Which fictional villain (none of your own originals) do you think is (most) justified in doing the evil things that they do? I want to say Moriarty, but I can't because he's clinically insane. I would go with Khan from Star Trek. At the beginning of Star Trek: Into Darkness, I actually felt a little bad for the guy. I mean, he lost all his friends and family. If we were in his position, we would want to get our loved ones back as well. But then he snapped a guy's neck and I lost all sympathy.
  • How did you pick your DA username? From the Sherlock fandom, of course. When Sherlock is solving a case, and when something is really easy or simple, he calls it 'elementary'. In short, my username means 'simply simple'.
  • If you could master any accent (not the language, just the accent), which would it be? British. Always British. But if I could learn the language, I would go with French. I'm taking a French class when school starts again, and that would make the class so much easier.
  • cielphantomhive9299
  • AdorableEvil29
10 people? Hahaha nope.

  • What is the craziest thing you've ever done?
  • If you could live in any foreign county, where would you live and why?
  • What is your guilty pleasure TV show?
  • What is a pet peeve of yours? A habit that some people have that's just freaking annoying?
  • Dream car?
  • How would you spend one million dollars?
  • What's the weirdest message someone has ever sent you on DA?
  • Speaking of DA, how did you come across it in the first place? Why did you decide to join?
  • What's a TV show that you haven't watched, but would like to try out?
  • If you could be anyone's intern, who would you want your boss to be?

Hey guys!

So, 100 followers is coming up pretty soon. I want to thank you all so much for that! I never expected to get to that number.

Granted, I'm not at that number yet, but I'd like to celebrate it by having a Q and A.

So, ask anything in the comments and I'll do my best to answer it!

I'll be posting the answers in about two weeks.

She goes by Ciel, and writes a bunch of really great fanfiction for Supernatural, Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, and lots more. She also has some fanart and the beginning of an original story that you have to read!

Au Revoir,
