Once, I had a dream about magic card swindlers. They were pretty classy. But not very nice.
Most kids have an after-school job at a burger chain, or do chores for spare change. But Rupert and his mothers Joanna and Emily run a shady family business from out of their “tour bus” unlike any other- what from the outside looks like a simple roving candle shop, is actually a supply store of the occult. Rupert has to deal with the pressures of their constant on-the-road lifestyle, but also cater to an unusual clientele; warlocks, witches, vampire hunters are a daily thing. Anti-ghost potions and luck bringing amulets are only impulse-buy items. But their best seller is found nowhere else in the world… Sigil Cards, a old family secret, are a type of magical item somewhere between a tarot card and Japanese ofuda, created with a dowsing board passed down through generations of his family. No two are the same, and anything from good luck, money and fame to strife, disease and disaster could befall you. It’s a gamble many of the magically-inclined travel far to take. However, there is one catch- once you use a Sigil Card, it’s effects will never wear off, but are never guaranteed, and what you want may not be what you need… and what you need may not be what you want. If Rupert is to continue his family’s business, he’ll have to learn to become as shrewd a businesswoman as his mothers are, and how to deal with less than satisfied customers.

The Amazing Underwater Forest of Lake Kaindy
What makes Lake Kaindy truly remarkable is that it contains an underwater forest. Visible on the lakes surface are the tall, dried-out tops of submerged Spruce trees that rise above the water’s surface like the masts of sunken ships. They are the only sign of the amazing frozen forest below the water’s surface.
The water is so cold (even in summer the temperature does not exceed 6 degrees) that the pine needles remain on the trees, even after a hundred years of being submerged. During the winter, the lake freezes and becomes a popular spot for ice diving.
The lake is 400 meters long and is located in Kazakhstan’s portion of the Tian Shan Mountains, about 129 km from the city of Almaty. The lake was created after an earthquake in 1911 triggered a large landslide blocking the gorge and forming a natural dam.
The Girl Who Flew Away
I’m so happy to have started this thing. This is the “intro,” I guess you could say. As I might’ve mentioned before, this will be it for a little while until I have a buffer and then I’ll make a beautiful site and will post more pages and everything.
Anyway, my ask box is open if you have any questions and thanks for reading!
Aaaa this looks so lovely / ~~ \!! I can’t wait to read more..

For those of you who missed it: Test Number One.
This right here.
It’s been less than two months short of a year since I posted a polka-bluegrass cover of Taio Cruz’ hit song, Dynamite. Since then, I’ve been wondering how I’d ever manage to top it. Only time will really tell if I’ve managed to pull it off with this cover of Love In This Club, originally performed by Usher and Young Jeezy. I’m sorry it took me so damn long. I’m not actually sorry. I am. No. I’m not. I’m sorry.
If you happened to dig this track and, for reasons beyond my personal understanding, would like to be able to listen to it at your leisure on your own personal music players, you can grab a download of it here. And if lossless versions are your thing, here’s a zip of some of those too.
Happy listening! I guess!
