Gothic Short Story – The Phantom Hitch-hiker

Something a bit different than what I usually write, but I thought I’d share. Enjoy 🙂

Pixie Hollow - Our Biggest Secret

Hi everyone,

So I’m finally on holidays again, which means that I get to spend the next two weeks reading, writing and watching YouTube!  😛

Today I thought I’d share a short story I write for my English class. We were studying the Gothic Genre last term, so in one of our last lessons, we were given a short scenario and asked to write write a short story about it and what happened next, including certain words. Well, we never went back to the task after that lesson, but I ended up finishing it and I wanted to share it.

This is the Gothic first story I’ve ever written, so I hope you enjoy it.  😉

– Rose  ❤

The Phantom Hitch-hiker

The meeting had gone longer than he had intended it to.

Brendan Woods sat in the front seat of his car, blinking wearily. The road ahead was long and…

PHF Forum Bomb!

Remember Pixie Hollow

phf-forum-bomb-bannerThe people in the PEF have decided to do a forum bomb thing. It is like the blog bombs that Marigold Sunjewel has been doing, but it is for Pixie Hollow Forums. If you want to do this and do not have a PHF account, you can sign up, but it will take a while for your posts to no longer be moderated. The forum bomb will be in approximately two weeks, as that will give people time to sign up. pixiehollowforums.com is the link, for those unfamiliar to PHF.

Decisions

Please help me pick what I should post next! 🙂

Pixie Hollow - Our Biggest Secret

Hey everyone!

Guess what? I’m (finally) on holidays again!  😀

As usual, this means I get to spend two weeks doing nothing very productive and speaking more to you guys than to my irl friends… I have a sad life  😛

On an up note, I’m not as sick as I was when I last posted, and I’m on the mend  😛

So I was wondering what you’d like me to focus on posting these holidays, so I made up a poll with a few ideas I had:

I’ll check the answers in a couple of days and aim to post at least the top three over the next two weeks in order of popularity.  😉

See you around,

Sneak Peeks – Part 2

Fly with you all,

So, I realised I’ve sort of been neglecting posting on all the blogs I guest author on.

A lot.

It’s been something like six months since I last posted on any of them!  D:

To pick up the slack, I’ve decided to release a sneak peek from five all-new stories that I’ve never mentioned before, and post one up on each of the blogs I guest author on.

I’ve already posted Part 1 on Raindrop’s Blog. This post will be Part 2 of 5.

The following Sneak Peek comes from a story currently called ‘The Return’, set not long after Christmas Chaos, the co-story Raven and I wrote at the end of last year.

Enjoy.  🙂

The Return – Sneak Peek

I sit in the reception room, waiting for my name to be called. As much as I protested, Izzy refused to let me wear my usual purple top and pants. Instead, I wear a black shoulderless sleeve top, with a deep pink miniskirt, black tights and matching boots. It’s nice, but the boots have heels, and I’ve never gone well in heels. Unfortunately, a lot of outfits in the Hollow have heels. Someone really needs to write a letter to the Never Council and complain.

“Rose MorningMist?”

I look up. The receptionist regards me without expression. “The Queen will see you now.”

~~

“Ah, Rose, just in time! Please, join us.”

The Queen smiles warmly. She wears a simple gown today, similar to the one she usually wears. This one is also golden, with intricate swirling patterns on the skirt.

Another fairy is with her – she has tanned skin, long black hair and bears the outfit of a scout fairy. She stares at me, and I have a feeling she’s sizing me up, assessing the best way to take me down in a fight. I swallow.

“Rose, this is Nyx. She’s one of my most trusted scouts. We have experienced a problem that may need your expertise.”

She gestures to Nyx, who nods.

“We found something early this morning in Summer Glade that can’t be explained. A whole patch of the place has been iced over completely – ground, plants, everything. Do you know of anyone who has this kind of magic?”

I frown. “No, I’m afraid not. Is it possible a winter fairy could have done it?”

Nyx shakes her head. “A winter fairy would never be able to get that far, not even with a snow maker to keep them cool. Their wings would break.”

“Are there any signs of melting?” I ask.

“No, it’s still as solid as we found it. It’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.”

The furrow in my brow deepens.

“Is there a chance I could take a look?”

So what do you think? Please let me know in the comments. I love hearing from you.  😉

Sincerely,

Ask Rose

Pixie Hollow - Our Biggest Secret

Hi everyone,

So, some of you may have visited my page, Ask Rose. Basically it’s a Q&A Page. You also may have noticed it’s a little… well… empty. 😛

So, I’m asking you guys for some help to fill it up.

If you have any questions for me about my stories, Worlize, the PEF, my time in the Hollow, PH, my blog – Anything really, please don’t be afraid to shoot me an email at rosemorningmist@gmail.com, or leave a comment under this post or on my Ask Rose page with your screen name (or fairy name) and question. There’s no limit to how many you ask – I’ll do my best to answer them all, so long as they’re not about personal information, of course.

‘Til next time,

– Rose  ❤

Descendants – Coincidence or Not?

Hey everyone,

So you may have noticed Minerva’s review on the Descendants game. After reading her post (and finally watching the movie), I downloaded the game to see what it was like first-hand.

Yep, that’s right. Rose is now attending Auradon Prep 😛

It’s actually a pretty good game, but waiting for energy can take forever. O_O

One thing that got my attention in particular was this outfit, custom made by Evie:

DCoN

Is it just me, or does it remind you of this particular PH top?

Seriously. Sometimes I wonder if they just recycle all their old outfits, because honestly, this is way too similar to just be a coincidence.

What do you think? Could this just be a coincidence? Have you ever found any Disney clothing that looks like something from PH? Tell me in the comments. 🙂

‘Till next time,

Sincerely,

– Rose ❤

That Future Post

Hiya pixies,

So, you know how I said I’d do a post on editing, like, a month ago?

Well, here it is – sorry for the SUPER long wait guys… -_-

Ok:

So for these edits I’ve been using Pixlr, ’cause I don’t have Photoshop at home.

For those who haven’t used Pixlr before, don’t stress, it isn’t too hard 😉

To create pictures like these –

Forgotten tales

The Lost Stories - Ruby

 

-You’re going to need a silhouetted picture of a person (just type silhouette photography into your search bar; it should come up with loads). I’m going to use this one:

sg1

To start, open pixlr and click on ‘open image from computer’.

Select your image and it should come up like this:

p2

Enlarge the window with your picture, and make sure you unlock the picture by double-clicking the padlock in the ‘layers’ box (you may need to drag the boxes out to see the padlock).

p3

Now you’re going to need some wings. I like to use the wings off of these pictures:

editing practice2

 

ep

They’ve got transparent backgrounds, which makes my life (and yours) a whole lot easier 😛

For this one, I’m going to use Tinkerbell’s wings:

tink1

Insert the fairy as a layer by going into Layer – Open image as layer. The fairy should come up like this:

p6

Ok, so obviously Tink is waaaaay too big for my edit. So before I do anything else, I’m going to use Edit – Free Transform to make her smaller, like this:

p7 p8

If you do resize the wings, make sure they’re not cut off by the edge of the picture when you confirm the transform, otherwise, you’ll lose half of it! 😛

p9

Much better 😉

Rub out all of Tink, except for her wings.

p10

Now, move the wings to where you want them and rub out what you don’t need. You can use free transform again to rotate the wings however you see fit:

p11 p12

For this particular picture, I’m going to repeat the previous steps for the wings to get the second wing.

p13

If you want, you can play around with contrast and add text if you want, and then:

DONE

TA – DA! 😀

I have to admit, this isn’t one of my best edits, but I’m still pretty proud of myself, seeing as I could barely edit anything this time last year 😛

So what do you think, pixies? Did you find this useful? Let me know what you think in the comments.

‘Till next time,

Sincerely, Rose ❤
