Ice Cream, Murder, and Music.

CUE THE MUSIC KELSEY!

I’m a writer and I’m crazy
Sadly I cannot drink dairy
And violence-wise, my mind is not the cleanest
But despite my talent at procrastination
And my pinterest, and my 7 kittiens
I’ve always yearned to be a published writer!
Can’tcha see my books sold world wide at book stores?
Actually making money off them?
Yep, I’d rather be called deadly
For my killer grammar and spelling!
Thank you!
‘Cause way down deep inside
I’ve got a dream

She’s got a dream!
She’s got a dream!

*Music dies down*

Ahem.

Anyway, I hoped you enjoyed my little musical number. Just pretend that it was the voice of your favorite singers serenading to you.

Lovely right?

Now you may be wondering if I can actually have dairy or not, and the thing is I can have butter, yogurt, and certain cheeses, but I can’t do milk or ice cream. You see the last time I had ice cream I was at Magic Kingdom and it was late at night, I’d say about 12 am (sometimes the parks stays open till 1 am!)

We (my family and I) were kind of celebrating and such, so I thought “Why not have the giant ice cream cookie sandwich the size of my head?!”

I get about half way through and think, hmm better not eat the whole thing. I ate both cookies though! šŸ˜€ So it’s all good and fun till I get on the monorail. Not only was I tooting the whole ride back to the parking lot, but right across from me was a drunk woman. A drunk 40 year old on her honey moon. And what was stranger was her parents were there as well. (Awkward much?!)

So as I’m tooting, she starts to sing to her new husband “Do you wanna build a snowman?!” over and over again. Right in his face too. At first I felt bad for tooting up a storm, but by this point I’m hoping that it smells so bad that she’ll hopefully pass out.

She doesn’t. To make it all worse, the woman wouldn’t sing the whole song, just “DO YOU WANNA BUILD A SNOWMAN?!”

I tried my best to not scream back “NO! NO I DO NOT WANT TO BUILD A MOTHER HUGGING SNOWMAN! NOR DO I THINK YOUR PARENTS OR HUSBAND OR ANYONE ELSE IN THIS MONORAIL!!!”

Does this story have anything to do with writing? Well I manged to come up with 5 ways to kill that woman in my head, so yes, I say it does.

Anyone else have dairy issues? Please comment below!

Marvelous Villains: A 3 part series dedicated to Marvel Villains (PART I)

MWHAHAHA- *coughs* *continues to coughs* *starts choking on a lung* *lung is currently coughed up*

Whether you’ve read the comics, watched the movies, or even watched the cartoons, it’s clear to see Marvel doesn’t make flat villains. They’re actual characters with feelings, backstories, families, friends, dreams, and goals. We may not agree with their ways of doing things, but we can at least understand them. Sometimes we may even find ourselves relating to them.

This series of blog posts will take an in-depth look at 3 of my favorite Marvel antagonists.

Now that the intro is taken care of, on with the blog!


Now as the oh so famous actor Tom Hiddleston said:

ā€œEvery villain is a hero in his own mind.ā€

A lot of people like to apply this to Loki Laufyson, but I find this quote more fitting for Magneto.

14b932ad1355efd582ccead1d8538c77One of my favorite villains of all time, he’s mostly known as the X-Men’s main antagonist, a mutant who has the power to control all magnetism. An INTJ with a plan, Magneto is one of the most intelligent and terrifying Marvel villains.

He also has a pretty tragic back story.

When Max Eisenhardt (Magneto) was young, he watched his family get brutally murdered by the Nazis. He then was sent to the Auschwitz death camp where he and other Jews were forced to operate the gas chambers, ovens, and fire pits of the camp.

He eventually makes it out, gets married, and has a daughter. But tragedy strikes when his wife and daughter are trapped in a burning house started by a mob. Max is able to use his mutant powers to save his wife, but not his daughter. In his anger and grief, Max unleashes his power and slaughters the nearby humans. His wife, who is terrified, leaves him.

f7da0eb02bb2f6aacb1f350cf06fbeb3Ow, right? On top of that, he starts to notice the mistreatment him and his fellow mutants are dealing with. The government is constantly on their backs and normal every day people treat them like freaks. It gets Max thinking:

If humans can be cruel to each other, what’s stopping them from being cruel to mutants? What’s stopping them from creating another Holocaust, with mutants as the target?

Nothing.

Max becomes afraid. And not the “I need a night light and teddy bear” afraid, more like “I’m a caged tiger and they can do whatever they want to me” afraid. This is the point when Max becomes Magneto.

1c409b68d4634cc713732ff2153fa2cdMagneto feels that mutants are better then humans. He also feels that humans need to be stopped altogether. He begins to gather mutants who think like him and start a group called the Brotherhood of Mutants. Magneto is willing to do whatever it takes to protect the mutants, dangerously so.

Why? Because deep down inside of Magneto isĀ  a terrified Max Eisenhardt. Max just wants the mutants to feel safe. He doesn’t want another young boy to see his family brutally murdered. He wants mutants to live happy and normal lives.

a4d44cefc69d2ebd7cf422cf44438ab9And what’s more terrifying is the fact it’s somewhat understandable.

If your family was killed brutally, wouldn’t you want revenge? If you saw the possibility of another Holocaust happening, wouldn’t you try and stop it? If you are more knowledgeable, more powerful, and overall better than everyone, wouldn’t you want to rule the world? Wouldn’t you make it a better place?

Sounds logical right?

For you maybe. All of these would work nicely for you, but sadly life doesn’t work like that. The world is filled with a lot of people and we can’t forget them in the process.

That’s why Magneto is a villain. Because in his mind, the only thing that matters is him and the mutants. He doesn’t realize he’s causing the same pain he faced to someone else. Magneto thinks he’s helping everyone, when in the end, he’s helping no one but himself.

None the less, all of this makes him one of my favorite villains. Everything he does, makes sense in some way or another. He’s not a mindless killing machine. He’s a person who is stranding up for his rights, his beliefs, and his people.

Also the whole “I can lift metal objects with my mind and crush people with them” is freaking awesome too. 602cadd777211af7b2a72f0b6d2c9fbfSo what kind of villain would I call Magneto? He’s what I’d classify as a “Logical Villain”. Magneto has a very logical and valid reason for why he does what he does. He also doesn’t always rely on his powers to get the job done. Sometimes all it takes are the right words at the right time.

There was also a time when Magneto created a whole Island for mutants and stopped trying to killing the humans. That was a nice time.

f180072d8368572c52308a053d0b6620Anyway, that’s enough of Magneto and his marvelousness.

Stay tuned for Part II: The Winter Soldier!

Writing Prompt Wednesday

Since this is the first Writing Prompt Wednesday, let me give a quick explanation as to what it is.

Every Wednesday I’ll post a writing prompt. That’s pretty much it…

So yeah.

Here’s the prompt *Awkwardly walks away*

For the first time in weeks I finally breathed in clean air and drank fresh water.

NOW WRITE MY NOBLE STEAD! WRITE ON!

*You proceed to neigh righteously*

Gettin’ Bloggy with it (Na na na na na)!

Ā Hello! First blog post! Exciting right?892dc59d7900eb90007bca111b9d6855

First thing: If you’re looking for a typical blog, then look no further! No, actually, turn around and run. Run really fast. Because I don’t plan on doing what’s typical or expected of me, and certainly not what’s normal. The name of the blog is Freckled Mermaids.Ā I’m not going for normal here.

I’m going for unique. Not that “LOOK! I MAKE UNICORN CAT COLLARS AND SELL THEM ON ETSY” unique. More of the “LOOK! I WRITE ABOUT UNICORN CAT COLLARS AND SEND IT IN TO PUBLISHERS!” unique. Sadly my story about the unicorn cat collars hasn’t gotten anywhere with the publishers, so I’m working on different things at the moment.

Such as a blog.

And a fantasy book series, with fairy tale parallels, a trilogy about dragons, and an Alice in Wonderland inspired comic/graphic novel, on top of theĀ other millionĀ  story ideas. Also cooking and baking. I do that a lot (eating what I make too).

I don’t think I need to say it, but I’m going to anyway: I am a writer. And that is why I’m doing this. I’m going to give tips, advice, and share with you my journey as a writer. But unlike other blogs, I don’t want you to get a peek into my life (that’s kind of creepy and stalkerish man). I want you to get a peek into my mind.

Which leads into why I write. I’m an INTP, a thinker.

3f3a15e1b0b888c3b01b7f402a80b3f9-I’d like to add I’m aware that Sherlock is an INTJ and not an INTP, but I just needed a really cool gif of someone thinking. Don’t judge me.-

I think a lot, it’s a hobby of mine. Call me arrogant, but I dislike the thought of the world not knowing a taste of my mind. I want someone to read my stuff and think “Wow…I get this. I think like this…It makes so much sense.”

As I mentioned above I like to cook and bake. I also like to eat. I don’t think about food as a form of energy or a source of sustenance. To me, cooking and baking are forms of art. So yes, food will be talked about from time to time. And if I’m feeling really artsy, I might even post recipes.

At this point you might be wondering, “This is nice and all…but freckled mermaids? What do they have to do with this?”

A lot actually. I have freckles all over me. My parents have freckles. My brother has freckles. A lot of my friends and family members have them too. I love freckles. I probably have freckles in my soul.

I also love mermaids and often like to think I am one myself. When you’re always finding salt in your hair, glitter on your face, and a love for the color blue, it starts to make you wonder…

Now I’d love to go on and on all day about freckles and mermaids, but I’ll save those topics for more blog posts.

I’ll also talk about books, fictional characters, movies/TV shows, my inner nerd, MBTI and other personality type stuff, and much much more!

You’ll get all of this for the small price of 5 payments of 19.95 (plus shipping and handling)!!!

Just kidding! If anything, I just want loyal readers who will be rooting for me and my works.

Okay, I would like money also.
