Yeah, surprise, surprise, another Rise of the Guardian fic from me. Will this stop anytime soon? Probably not! XD

Title: The Whole Story
Rating: G
Summary: When visiting North's workshop, Jack ends up telling North the whole story of his encounter with Pitch and the offer he made. The reaction was not what Jack expected.

Jack looked around his room, HIS room )

This fic ended up a lot longer than intended.  It just grew a mind of it's own.


Title: The Escape Attempts of Jack Frost
Rating: G
Summary: Jack is sick and he knows that he should stay in bed. However, he can't resist attempting to get outside. Too bad the other guardians don't agree with him on the idea.
Author's Note: Big thanks to Icka for helping with beta read this.

I found out about this yesterday and I have to spread the word of this. William Joyce, the creator of The Rise of the Guardians/Guardians of Childhood is running a kick starter to help his studio fund a video game. What's the game about? The Golem of Prague.



This looks TOTALLY awesome. I've always loved the story of the Golem of Prague. The kickstarter for it is HERE for those who are interested. ^_~

It's been awhile since I've done a proper post, January ended up being busies than I expected.

First off did some ROTG fanart on Jack Frost.

Read more... )

Funny story for this, I was looking up Valentine's Day on wiki because I was feeling bored when I stumbled upon this bit of info:
In Norfolk, a character called ‘Jack’ Valentine knocks on the rear door of houses leaving sweets and presents for children. Although he was leaving treats, many children were scared of this mystical person.

Course, I HAD to draw Jack Frost as a "Jack Valentine." How could I not? Stu got me a tablet for Christmas, and this was the first drawing I properly used it both for colour and digital inking. I know I need more practice, but he turned out really cute.

Also, this summer I'm going to try selling some of my felt crafts and clay jewelery locally. I was telling one of my co-workers how I tried to sell some crafts on esty, but I didn't sell a lot because there's A LOT of stiff competition. She then suggested to me about selling my crafts locally, and told me about how her and some of my co-workers sell their crafts at a craft event held by the the ovarian cancer society every summer.

The crafters buy a table and the money goes to the charity, but the crafters get to keep the profits they sell from their crafts. The main point of the even is to raise awareness. I have thought about selling my stuff at cons, but wasn't sure how much I would enjoy it. However, I figured this would be a good experience for me and it's for a good cause. Worse case, if I don't sell anything I will have some Christmas gifts ready for next year.

Thankfully, it's not until the summer so I got plenty of time to work away and make some stuff before then to sell.

And here's another ROTG drabble. Big shock I'm sure. One of my New Year Resolutions is to read the Guardians of Childhood novel. Might even make reviews of them as I go.

Anyway, here's another drabble, for New Years.

Title: New Family, New Memories
Series: Rise of the Guardians
Rating: G
Summary: It's New Years Eve, and Jack takes the group out skating.

It was late and every single star twinkled in the sky and the moon was bright and full )

Many of you have probably noticed how much I've been fangirling over Rise of the Guardians. Yes, it's not a 100 percent movie, but it's an awesome movie and it has such potential for a lot of great sequels and future stories.

However, it's not doing so great in the box office (because the distributors were dumb enough to release it the same weekend Twilight was coming out and what is apparently the lowest number people go to the movies. *grumble*). Why is this important? Because, even if it does sell well on DVD and itunes, if they don't do well in the box office it's unlikely Dreamworks will make more in the franchise. (Megamind is sadly a good example of this happening.)

So, if you're able go see and tag a few people along that think you'll enjoy it with you. This movie needs as much support as it can get. I hate to see this franchise end before it even had a chance to start. (Plus, instead of getting more movies like this, Dreamworks will keep making cheap silly movies like Madagascar 3 because they'll think those are the only things that sell.)

With that said, people should totally check out Rufftoon's DA gallery She's worked on the movie and has been making some great comics based off it.

Yeah, I wrote another drabble and I invited a character for this, but technically it's not a original character. The witch Befana and she actually is a story from Italy. If you google "La Befana" you can get more details, but basically on the eve of Janurary 5th it's said she rides her broom stick and delivers presents to good children. Sound familiar? She's basically a female witch version of Santa and I've always love this story and I think she would fit perfectly in the Rise of the Guardian universe.

So, yeah, I invented a Rise of the Guardian version for her and in my head she's has a "close" relationship with North. XD

Title: The Witch of the Season
Series: The Rise of the Guardians
Rating: PG
Characters: Jack Frost, North, and Bunny.
Summary: The guardians are asked to help at North’s shop the last month before Christmas and Jack ends up meeting a “friend” of North’s.
Note: I blame [livejournal.com profile] dqbunny for the "sweetie" reference. XD

Jack grumbled as he climbed to the top shelf in the closet. )

Had to get a fic out of my system since I saw Rise of the Guardians.

Daddy! Daddy! Jamie yawned and sipped his coffee )

Saw Rise of the Guardians last night with Stu and it was as awesome as I hoped it would be.

I've seen people just calling it "Avengers for kids" and it's a pretty accurate description. Yeah, the story is simple, but it was fun to watch The Easter Bunny, Santa, Tooth Fairy, Sandman and Jack Frost all interact with each other.

Also, I love the design of the different worlds for each character. William Joyce (the writer of the Guardians of Childhood books and a major producer on this movie) wanted to try to answer every single question a kid would have about these characters? How does the Bunny make all the eggs, how does Santa go around the world in one night, etc.

I also thought the mythology of the world and would love to see it more explored in future films. Granted, not sure if they would just reuse Pitch or try to create another villain, but not sure what the next villain would be. With that said, makes me wonder if other characters would pop up. Like Cupid for Valentine's day, maybe father time, mother nature, etc

My only complaint is that I would like to see more female guardians, but the writers had to play on classic childhood characters and most of them due tend to be guys. (I had thought a female cupid would be awesome. Another badass girl character with arrows that could join Merida and Katniss in movies. XP)

Anyway, I would say this movie is just as good as Wreck-it Ralph, but I honestly can't say one is better than the other. It would be like comparing apples and oranges really. All in all, it's a movie worth seeing, I think the fantastic animation/designs make it worth it alone.

I also have a theory on Jack Frost.

Jack Frost spoiler ahead )
