Actually changed to it just this morning, while making icons for an Alan Wake RP account. There, like, are only 15 pictures between Alan Screenshots and his actor. What actor only has 6 promo shots? Luckily, the game developers released a fansite kit about a year ago including a few models plus this desktop. It's high contrast, stylish and I could crop the logo out and resize without losing too much.

I'm seriously enjoying Alan Wake despite not being altogether good at it. I also have what I can only describe as a compulsion to RP him. MUST FINISH GAME FIRST. I'm only in,like, episode 3. :|

Stealing from [livejournal.com profile] rabbit_heart , because I ♥ Children's books and everyone should read them forever.

Top 100 Children's Novels

Bolded = I've read it )

Frances Hardinge's "Fly by Night" is still the best children's book, hands down.

Also, there is a reason subsequent Ember books are not on that list. Kind of the same thing with Subtle Knife. And the last Inkheart book.

You know how sometimes people on your friendslist post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when were they working THERE? Since when were they dating HIM/HER? Since when???" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please copy the topics below, erase my answers and put yours in their place, and then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration. One-Word-Answers seldom help anyone out. (:
