So, to keep my journal active, I decided to post one of my drabbles here along with on a03.
Welcome to Hell
“So, what are you in for?”
Dean couldn’t believe it. Here he was, sitting in the middle of a freaking cell in Hell and some punk decided to ask him a question like that. Of course, he had never expected Hell to be like jail, with cells and bright orange coveralls and nasty food. Really, where was the torture and fire and brimstone? The demons and horror he had been told to expect? Of course, maybe his cellmate was meant to be his torture. He turned his head to blast the idiot and stopped when he saw who the voice belonged to.
A kid. Couldn’t have been more than eighteen or nineteen, with long, shaggy black hair that hung over one eye and a goofy grin that reminded him of Sammy. Sitting cross-legged on the bunk, behind where Dean had materialized into the cell, the boy looked at him with a goofy, welcoming, expression.
“I’d say ‘Welcome to Hell,’ but somehow that seems to be so wrong. Name’s Xander.” The kid didn’t bother to stand up or offer to shake hands, but Dean didn’t let that bother him. He couldn’t have moved if he had wanted to.
Your result for The Remarkably Thorough Harry Potter Character Test...
“It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.”
You are Albus Dumbledore, the Headmaster of Hogwarts and one of the most powerful sorcerers of all time. Dumbledore is coy, a little odd, and very friendly. Although he has a benevolent and peaceful disposition, he is assumed to be dangerous because of his intelligence. The ones who fear him are the ones who misunderstand him, much like Cornelius Fudge and Dolores Umbridge. He could be compared to people like Mahatma Gandhi or Martin Luther King, Jr.; while most honor and respect him, everyone else hates and ostracizes him. You are like Dumbledore in the sense that both of you are caring, open-minded, and always trying to put others before yourself. Dumbledore has his bad side, of course, what with his entanglement with Grindelwald, and so do you. You are not perfect, although you strive to be. You have a certain air of dignity about you, but you are not conceited or judgmental. Everyone seems to be drawn to your charm and whimsy, even if they’ve already decided that they dislike you. Keep doing what you're doing. It's working!
Between school and real ;ife, it has taken me forever to finish my first book. I really enjoyed the obsure bits of history behind the designs on each of the 50 state quarters. If you like history and trivia, this is a fun book.
I just joined the 50 books in a year challange and decided "Doc" will be my first book of the year. Written by Mary Doria Russell, it is a great book about Doc Holliday. I have read it before but decided to start the year off re-reading an old friend. That way, I can jump start my list with a book I already like.
Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you all are having a great day. I woke up to crying kids, a sick dog and sick husband. But I also woke up to a new chapter of SEAL Universe over at Mincka83 journal. That made my day!
