Teen Writing Group 

Teen Writing Group is always lots of fun because you get to talk to other people writing stories like you. We had a prompt at the beginning of the meeting about the location on your GPS changing and there was someone there waiting for you. No one has the exact same style of writing so it was cool seeing how our minds would take this. Somehow we ended up with a few Doctor Who references, but as they say great minds think alike. After that we got to work. Heather passed out character charts for us to develop our characters. All in all, it was a great meeting. Hope you come to the next one!

Unplugged: Love Letter

The library has a variety of games to play and one of my favorites is Love Letter. This game was designed by Seiji Kanai and has pretty simple rules to follow.  There are eight kinds of Love letter but the one we have is the Tempest edition.

In this game you are trying to woo the heart of Princess Annette, but after her mother’s death she has locked herself in the palace and your only way of giving her your love letter is through others in the palace. To play, there is a set of 16 cards, each representing a different person in the castle. Only one card is in  your hand when it is not your turn, and that is who has your love letter. In order to win a token of the princess’s affection, you need to have the person closest to her with your love letter. Simple, right? Except each card does something different when discarded.

To know more, click here for the complete rules or go play the game yourself at the library on April 30 for International Tabletop Day.

FMPL vs. NVPL

Welcome to Night Vale: a novel by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor came out in October 2015, and the podcast has been running since 2012. Here is a post with 10 differences on the Flower Mound Public Library with Night Vale Public Library.

  1. The only thing you need to bring is your library card, and maybe a bag or two. Not body bags, book bags.
  2. Librarians can, in fact, see the color blue. Sure, it’s only an urban myth in Night Vale, but we do know for fact that the librarians can see the color blue. They might not be able to see orange, though.
  3. There is not a map of the library, but it’s fairly obvious where each item is. You would not need a map or have to find out which of the maps you have are forgeries. There is even a system to how the books are organized.
  4. Everything will, in fact, be fine. Nothing bad is going to happen. No librarians who creep up and try to attack you. No man-eating books. No children-eating books. No people-eating books. Everything will be fine.
  5. The library will not be empty. There will usually always be a librarian around and even people, too. The librarians will be right where you can watch them.
  6. The bulletin board has events that are happening in the library. They are all new and happening that month. Also the Sheriff’s Secret Police will not report you or even observe you and take you to be interrogated for going to one of these events.
  7. The library is very well lit. No librarians can sneak up to you in the shadows since there are none. They usually lure you to them by implanting a question into your brain.
  8. There are no child statues that are in pain. The statue is happy. So happy. So terribly happy.
  9. The summer reading program is not dangerous. We don’t give out librarian heads as trophies and  everyone survives. Some even get to stay longer locked up in the library.
  10. There is no fountain in the library. That would be dangerous. Someone may drown or get stuck in it. Even worse the books would get wet.

A few more are: The librarians will not attack you. You will not find teeth scattered on the ground. The reading areas are safe. They do not have records of your life details. People don’t just visit because there are no options left.

If there is any I forgot to mention leave a comment below. Another thing you can leave a comment about is if you want to see a Welcome to Night Vale Random Fandom! Bye guys!

About the Teen: Chidinma Valerii

Hi! I’m Chidinma, but some people also call me Valerii. I am new to the blog, so I thought a great way to start out would be by introducing myself.

I am a freshman at Flower Mound high school right now.

I’m sort of anti-social, but some how end up with the loudest of friends. Or at least I think they are loud. There are some exceptions though.

I’m a major fangirl.  Some of my favorite books are The Percy Jackson series, the Harry Potter books, Every Other Day, and Welcome to Night Vale: a novel. My favorite animes are Bleach, No Game No Life, Fairy Tail, Tokyo Ghoul, and D. Gray-man. I don’t usually watch a lot of TV so I currently have only one favorite show, Miraculous Ladybug. My favorite podcast is Welcome to Night Vale. I have a lot of favorites.

I am also a procrastinator. I usually stay up until eleven to finish all my assignments.

I have frequent headaches. That’s why sometimes I will be clutching my left eye.

One of my favorite lurking spots will be the library.

I really like cats but I am highly allergic to them.

So I’m going to end this with one of my favorite Night Vale quotes.
