WEEK 1

1.       At the beginning of the story, the Assorted Zebras are just a garage band, but they are expecting to make it big. Who knows, you just might find yourself at one of their concerts someday. Until then, show me your favorite concert t-shirt. It could be a picture of a concert you actually attended or a pic of a vintage tee of your favorite band. Be sure to tell me the story behind the tee.
 
I went to 3 concerst from that band and I have amazing memories from all of them. I got autographs, pictures, meet awesome people that are now some of my closest friends and the best, I got to see my fav band live.

The McFLY one is actually my brother’s t-shirt. But I went to the concert, and it was amazing. Front row and meet and greet. I was a very happy person!
Sonata’s t-shirt is mine, is old and went with me to both concerts so it had LOTS of sweat in it… but also amazing memories from one of the best shows. But is in the washing machine so no pic :S

2.       Jason’s mom forces him to agree to do some yard work for Mrs. Dullahan, which wouldn’t be so bad if she wasn’t rumored to be a witch. Tell me about the worst chore you were ever forced to do. Who make you do it? Bonus points if you have a picture to share of you doing the dirty work.

Honestly I can’t remember of an ugly chore I had to do… my parents are cool like that :P The worst I had to do was cleaning the cat’s litter box LOL and considering the cat is mine, it was my duty L

3.       Uh oh! There seems to be a jewelry thief in the neighborhood. Have you have had anything stolen from you? Or have you ever lost something precious? Did you ever find it? Make a Reward if Found poster for the stolen or lost item. Convince us to find it for you. Make the reward good!


4.       In Faerie, Jason declares himself as Jason the Guy Who Wants That Necklace Back. Weird, but then again every name has a meaning. What does your name mean? What is the origin? Do you go by any kind of nicknames? How did you get that nickname?

Cynthia is a Greek girl name. The meaning of the name is `moon, Greek god `

The name Cynthia means woman from Kynthos. 

 In Greek 
mythology it was used as an epithet of Artemis, the Greek goddess of the moon and of hunting; she 
was supposed to have been born on Mount Kynthos on the island of Delos in the Aegean Sea. 

Daniela is Hebrew and means “God is my Judge”.

Nicknames: I’ve got lots… Cyny, Cyn, those are pretty common.

Chuchi: Well I was the youngest so my cousins gave me weird names…

Pity: For you English speakers, the girl in The Smurf, in Spanish is called Pitufina, and as the youngest I was the 
shortest in the family… so they shortened it to Pity for me L

5.       When Jason gets home from his all night adventures through Fairy, his parents unfairly ground him for a month! Care to share a time you were grounded by your parents for no good reason?

I’m a good girl, I can say with all honesty that I was never grounded as a child, even when maybe I deserved it. I love my parents :D

Fairy Metal Thunder
Songs of Magic, #1
J.L. Bryan
A rock & roll fairy tale.
Jason plays guitar in a teenage garage band called the Assorted Zebras, but they have no fans, no gigs, and they’re going nowhere. Even worse, Jason has a crush on their lead singer, but she doesn’t seem interested in him at all.
Then Jason steals instruments from the fairy world. Soon the band is enchanting crowds, and Jason is a step closer to the girl of his dreams, but the new gear is brimming with dangerous and destructive magic they can’t control.
Their shortcut to success has cost a troupe of innocent fairies their livelihood and turned Jason and his band into enemies of the powerful Queen Mab, who sends supernatural bounty hunters to track them down, including one of the most dangerous horned creatures in Faerie…a small unicorn named Buttercake.
