YES YES YES
Hey everyone! I’m looking to trade again, but first -
I’ve got over 15 Jungle Vivillons up for trade to whoever wants them. I’m gonna get some Archipelagos tonight, and then maybe tomorrow, maybe Wednesday will reset my Y version to get Icy Snows. Speaking of which.
I want to apologize to Charmed7293 and babarsk13188 - I know I arranged to trade you guys Icy Snows a few months ago. I haven’t forgotten about you, I swear. School just got in the way and I wasn’t able to find the time to reset the game and get them to you. If you still need them, they’re yours, just let me know if you see this. And again, I’m very, very sorry.
Now on to my other reason for this post.
This goes out to anyone with HeartGold (or Soul Silver, I guess).
I’m looking for 1 Ho-oh [trade pending] and 1 Kyogre [still looking].
I’m offering in exchange 1 shiny Entei [available] and 1 shiny Suicune [Suicune currently on reserve].
For Gen V (B/W/B2/W2), I would be willing to offer a Dialga/Palkia/Giratina (all shiny) for a Rayquaza and/or Groudon.
Anyone interested? Shoot me a message and we can arrange something. =)
UPDATE (Jan 27, 2014): Ho-oh for Suicune trade is pending, so now I’m looking for someone to trade a Kyogre for my shiny Entei. Anyone?
Thought I’d add this on and update the list, for anyone wanting the Vivillons -
Some ‘mons I’d love to have if at all possible?
- Litleo (male named Fasa?)
- Shiny male Umbreon named Duncan (This is just wishful thinking! Umbreon is my favorite of the Eevee evos, and I love the blue/black pairing. I don’t actually expect anyone to offer me a shiny Umbreon, don’t worry. Side note though: If you do [and are serious] you will have my undying love until the end of time!)
- …cute little shiny Litwick? (Again, just wishful thinking. I don’t actually expect an offer for this, just throwing it out there.)
I don’t need anymore Vivillons, but it doesn’t really matter. I’m not going to be real picky about this, I do just want to help people out with their collections, since I got so much help with mine. So that’s just a general wishlist, you don’t have to have one of those mons for me to trade with you! Feel free to surprise me with an offer! =)
Hey everyone! So, first things first- big shoutout to ignarant! Thanks for trading me Kyogre and Ho-oh, you are beyond amazing!
I’m still looking for Groudon and Rayquaza. I’m offering a shiny Dialga/shiny Palkia/shiny Giratina in exchange. I have these three shinies in Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, and would prefer to trade within that gen (gen IV), but I can transfer them to B/W/B2/W2/X/Y if need be.
These are the two I’m having the hardest time getting. Anyone willing to help?
If so, send me a message and we can work something out! I’m looking to make the trade before May, since online functions for Gen IV & V games goes offline around May 20.
And btw, I still have Jungle/Archipelago Vivillons up for grabs if anyone wants them.
take a shot for every lone hero who would be able to solve it if 75,000 people just stopped and let him do it for a second

WHEN THE WRITERS OF “DOCTOR WHO” FOUND OUT THAT DAVID TENNANT HAD TROUBLE SAYING WORDS ENDING WITH -OON WITHOUT REVERTING BACK TO HIS NATURAL SCOTTISH ACCENT, THEY WROTE AN ENTIRE EPISODE AND INVENTED A NEW TYPE OF ALIEN JUST SO THEY COULD MAKE HIM SAY “A JUDOON PLATOON UPON THE MOON.”

What You Don’t Know About Beauty and the Beast:
Some backstory: due to this little discussion, I was considering writing a continuation/expansion of Beauty and the Beast. I read up on it and found out everything I thought I knew about it was wrong.
-It was created by one, singular, female author in 1740: Madame Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve
-It is not a retelling of a pervasive folklore like Perrault’s Cinderella, for example. It was influenced by folklore but is an original story and is very “post” the fairy tales you might be familiar with. The story is also influenced by women who gathered together and told each other revisions of fairy tales in Parisian salons.
-It’s over 100 pages long
-Though written simply and in a straightforward manner, the characters have personalities and are much more complex in their emotions than a normal folkloric tale. They behave in a diverse and fairly realistic manner to their situations. The Beast’s mother in particular is a complex woman, protective of her son and a capable military leader but not progressive in her attitude towards marrying below your station.
-Women are overwhelmingly the masters of the plot and outnumber the men in number and priority.
Female players include:
A nice Fairy
A jerk Fairy (called Mother of the Seasons)
The Queen of the Fairies
A Fairy-who-is-a-Queen (these are different)
A Queen/the Beast’s mother
Belle’s shallow (though fairly realistically so) sisters who are treated as a collective
-It contains considerable world-building. Fairy language, Fairy law, Fairy influence over monarchies, Fairy hierarchy, Fairy magic are all things she depicts. (eat your heart out, Tolkien fans).
-The curse is broken halfway through the book. The rest is devoted to comments on class, monarchy, marrying for love vs. status, appropriate conditions for love, and marrying below your station among other things.
-The Beast is cursed to punish his mother.
-The book’s plot turns out to be entirely due to the machinations of The Mother of the Seasons and the long-game trap/revenge story orchestrated by the Nice Fairy to defeat The Mother of the Seasons Fairy.
-The book takes place in a specific time period rather than in a nebulous “before-time”, somewhere, as I figure, between 1669 to the early 1700s. It might even be contemporaneous to when it was published. It references the age piracy, revolutions, the merchant class, the presence of slavery, Belle watching comedies, operas, and plays the Fair of St. Germain, and a Janissary battle.
-The Beast’s Queen mother led troops into battle for several years, put down a revolt and defeated an encroaching enemy monarch.
And this is only a partial list.
If you’d like to read the original version by Madame de Villeneuve, it’s collected in a book by J. R. Blanche.
It’s available for free:
Archive.org (they don’t mention her name in the author list but it’s there)
I’ve uploaded a PDF of the Beauty and the Beast part on Google Drive.
I never understood why a good fairy would punish an 11 year old. This makes more sense! (also I am totally reading this)
loisfreakinglane for you!
I feel like this would be of great interest to anybody interested in faeries

THIS DESERVES THE BIGGEST Z-SNAP.
If Lily and James were still around, can you imagine the howlers Harry would get if he got into trouble? Like, there would be Lily being the stern parent and reprimanding Harry, while James would fail miserably as he would try to be stern but would just end up laughing hysterically.
