National Novel writing Month

This blog is now going to become my headquarters for NaNoWriMo.  I will be posting all kinds of character references, timelines, random info, exerts, and brainstorming here.  So, um, if you are interested in my NaNoWriMo progress, check this blog often.

So, um,

That's all, thank you.

The Island 3

Hey there everyone. The reason that I'm posting this is because I have started working on THE ISLAND: Period 3. This one is going to be the best so far, this time being in 12 Colored Pencil color! I was going to buy a larger package but I spent too much on the fancy paper for the comic, so...

Anyway! This one features a new class and a new teacher, as well as the return of an old one (I'm not telling who, though.) In addition, the fancy paper I mentioned earlier means -yes, that's right - No annoying lines through the comic. Just a white background.

As you can tell, I'm super pumped, and you should be, too. Thanks for reading!

Hobey-Ho,
LeoN

 I think it is awesome that I use LiveJournal.  You know why?

Because according to The Social Network, Mark Zuckerburg used LJ.

Oh yeah.

This is a test.

So this is just a test- I wanted to see if the client that I downloaded for my phone, LJ Beetle, works.

Writer's Block: Homeword bound

How would you describe your perfect home in ten words or less?

Home home home home home home home home home me.
 I wrote this paper for my Hebrew Scriptures class.  It is about Batman and Death Note.  REVEL IN IT!

The desire to decide whether or not another human being lives or dies is something not held by everyone. Many people find it to be too much to handle, something that should not rest on one person alone. Some people do enjoy this power, though, and they may or may not be able to handle this with dignity and sanity. People may call for the legality and opportunity to decide whether people live or die, but when handed the opportunity, they find that the power is harder to handle than they had originally thought.

The unwillingness to take the responsibility and power to choose if someone lives or dies is shown in the 2008 movie The Dark Knight, in which people in two separate boats are told that they each have the detonator to blow up the other boat. If neither of them blows up the other boat, both boats will be blown up. One of these boats is filled with citizens evacuating the city, and the other is filled with convicts. At first it seems to be an easy decision for both boats: blow up the other boat. The decision soon becomes more complicated when the people on each boat realize that they do not want to end the lives of those on the other boat. Finally, the citizens put their decision to a vote. The convicts are sure that they want to blow up the other boat, but no one can come to activate the detonator. One convict takes the detonator, saying, “I’m going to do something that should have been done a long time ago.” He throws the detonator out of the window, relinquishing the power to decide the fate of the people in the other boat. The citizens ended up deciding to blow up the other boat, but no one was able to get the courage to push the button – none of them could come to terms with killing the people on the other boat, even though they were convicts.

The people on both of the boats did not want the power to control whether people lived or died. They knew that it was not right for them to have that power, and that they should not use it. No one used the detonators. They also knew that if they were still arguing about whether or not to blow up the other boat, the other boat had not blown them up yet. They did not want to kill other people because they knew that it was wrong. Even out of desperation, they would not kill.

Sometimes, though, people do want the power to kill. As exhibited in the Japanese comic Death Note, some people do want the power to decide others’ fates. In this comic, a high school student finds a notebook that allows him to kill anyone whose name he knows. He uses this notebook to kill evildoers. This causes the police and investigatory departments of a couple of countries to begin searching for him. Although he is only killing criminals, he is still killing, and he must be brought to justice. Light, the teenager with the Death Note, has no problem with killing people, and he enjoys the power to choose whether people live or die. The power, though, eventually drives him crazy. The power of choosing whether people live or die is something that some people may aspire to have, but of those people, not many can actually handle the responsibility.

If someone has the power to decide whether a person lives or dies, they are put in the position to sin. If they choose to kill others, they are murdering them, which is a horrible sin. In killing others, you are taking the place of God, who should be the only one to decide when someone lives or dies. Referring again to Death Note, when Light begins to kill criminals, he is referred to by the public as “Kira”, and is worshipped as a god. He took the place of God, and the worship of him is there to symbolize that he is taking the place of God when he kills other people.

Taking the place of God was the sin that got Adam and Eve kicked out of the Garden of Eden. They were told by the serpent that if they ate of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, they would “be like gods who know what is good and what is bad” (Genesis 3: 5). Killing someone would be taking the place of God, and in doing this, one would be taking the place of God. Not many people want to take this power, because they are wary of its implications, and of the consequences of trying to be God.

Okay, okay, so tomorrow is the beginning of Script Frenzy. That is pretty freaking amazing. I have never done well at Screnzy, but I hope to change that this year. Last year, I did pretty well in NaNoWriMo, so I think that this Screnzy bodes well for me.

I am going to do my script about a ginger girl who is bullied. She may or may not have mental problems, and slips into delusions often. SO that's going to be fun. It's going to be a dramedy.

That's about all for now. Bye.

Hobey-ho,

Writer's Block: Stories of old

Who is your favorite mythical creature/character, and why?

I would have to say that my favorite mythical creature is...
I don't know.  It is really hard to choose.  I read Percy Jackson, and all of the creatures that they battle and stuff in those books are really cool.  It would be just tough to choose between any of them.

But if I had to, I guess the minotaur would be my favorite.  

Think about it.  It's a freaking cow person.  But they kick butt, and they're TANKS.  They will take you out, not like the satyrs, who will sit there and play the pan flute.  They will charge you and let your guts spill all over the freaking place.  I mean, would you want to be attacked by this freaking thing.

Think of Percy Jackson.  In the first book, he gets attacked by this thing.  You know what he does?  He freaking kills his mom.  (Okay, not really, she was captured by Hades, but whatever...)  The point is, minotaurs are HARDCORE.
