Favorite Fictional Characters: Fictional Couples

I know I've been ignoring my blog lately, so to make it up I have a fictional character list for everyone, today's list has to do with my favorite fictional couples...enjoy =]

Hermione & Ron


So, yeah, this couple goes without saying, I mean Hermione and Ron are basically one of my favorite best friends/sometimes haters turned lovers couples ever. They are just so cute! And everytime I read their parts of their story in Harry Potter I feel all warm and fuzzy inside. YEAH!!

That reminds me...I need to watch the 7th Harry Potter movie...



Stan & Kyle (Style)


There's been a bunch of like argument against Style saying, they are just best friends, no one should think they are together because they are just really close friends...blah blah blah blah blah. Yeah, I know they will probably never get together in South Park, mianly becuase they are both fourth graders...but they have like majorly cute fanfiction so I just love them together...it's sweet to see such a cute friendship between two guys.

All this talk of Style just reminds me how many ambiguous slash couples there are. Craig & Tweek, Cartman & Butters, Butters & Kenny, etc etc. South Park is awesome.

Jessica & Lucius [Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side]



OMG these two just make vampire couples so sweet, cute and amazing. I basically wanted a vampire boyfriend after this book, lol, but only if he was as hot as Lucius ;) But I just love the relationship between Jessica and Lucius though it is very cliche but it was still very addicting and kept me reading until I finished it in a day.


Taylor & Jonah [Jellicoe Road]



So Jellicoe Road is basically one of my favorite YA books ever. And the characters of Taylor & Jonah just do the novel total justice because they are so awesome. Two strong characters getting together who don't want to be in love but who just are...can you say amazingly cuteness? Yes! Taylor and Jonah!

So, there are still a bunch of awesome fictional couples but this is all I have for now...and maybe I'll do a new list?

ToGetHer

Title: ToGetHer
Chinese Title: 愛就宅一起 (Ai Jiu Zhai Yi Qi)
Other Titles: Superstar Express
Language: Chinese (Mandarin)
Amount of Episodes: 12
Opening Song: 越來越愛 (Yue Lai Yue Ai/Loving More and More) By: Fahrenheit [Click HERE to listen english subbed]
Closing Song: 默默 (Mo Mo/Silently) By: Fahrenheit [Click HERE to listen english subbed]
Starring: Rainie Yang [Click HERE for TTS] as Chen Mo Mo, Jiro Wang (Fahrenheit) as Mars/Zhuang Jun Nan, George Hu as Wei Jia Sen and Linda Liao as Chen Chu Chu.
Reccomended For: Teens

"Why are you gazing at me like that? Be careful of falling in love with me"

Summary: Mars is a superstar whose popularity has plummeted from all of the negative publicity he has recieved. Having no money and having been kicked out of his house, he ends up having to rent a very cheap room from Chen Mo Mo and her sister. Chenn Mo Mo is a homegirl who's only interest is in Prince Kasaba. At first, they develop a mutual disdain for each other but are unable to distance themselves for each other because Mars has been put into her university and their living arrangement does not make it very easy to not see each other. After while, they start becoming friends and soon start falling for each other, exciting Mo Mo's sister and angering her friend Jia Sen, a swim captain with the intellegence of an eight year old.

Wdebo's Review: When I first heard of ToGetHer, I did not want to watch it at all, the drama recieved very low ratings and the summary seemed really boring. After seeing all of that, I forgot the drama for about a year, and just a week ago I decided to watch it because I was really bored. From the first minute I started to watch it I was hooked. ToGetHer was one of the most addicting, hillarious, sweet and cute dramas ever.

The drama was very simple and cute. I don't know why but it was just so great and made me very happy. The characters are all very loveable in their own ways except for these mean girls and this one really mean guy, but apart from that, I loved everyone :) I absolutely loved the ending too...I pretty much died from the sweetness it had...super cute!!

Jiro's character was awesome...maybe it's because Mars is very Jiro-like but Jiro's acting was very natural and hillarious and cute. Rainie was awesome, except Mo Mo gets kind of emo at times so it's quite annoying but she's still awesome. George's character was so cute, George is super cute. I felt very bad for George's character the whole time, I really wished he would get someone :(

Oh yeah, but my favorite...FAVORITE character is Mu Mu (姆姆) (So cute!!)

I want one so unnaturally badly but they are very expensive :(

All in all, a wonderful drama that is sure to make you happy and well Jiro is in it and he is, well, amazing =] so that is a great incentive to watch the drama.

Grade: A++

So Taiwan and Fahrenheit? BEST SONG EVER :DD Ok, so I'm kind of baised but..yeah...the whole time I was listening I was thinking...holy crap...I would DIE if Fahrenheit greeted me at Taiwan XDDDD But this is a wonderful song because it shows many of Taiwan's most beautiful scenary and stuff...and really if you've never been to Taiwan I would highly reccomend you to go :) Just such a wonderful country...and well my family is from there so of course I would say that...but it's TRUEEEEE :)

Guest Blog: Jess C Scott

Hey buddies!! Hopefully everyone is having an awesome Thanksgiving :) So, today, I have for you a guest blog by Jess C Scott, the author of EyeLeash: A Blog Novel, now she has a new book called 1:The Intern...so here is her post for that book...enjoy!!

~~~~
BOOK SUMMARY: A 17-year-old intern must choose between trusting an irresistibly suave dance instructor—or her instincts. SINS07 is a series featuring lighthearted tales that explore each of the seven sins in order, beginning with lust.
* Jo.Zee is the dance instructor in the book. This would be his character profile.

Name: Joshua Zee / Nickname: Jo.Zee (21 years old)
Zodiac: Gemini Sun

Occupation / Credits:

1) Performed in several concerts and major events, for companies like Adidas, MTV, and Samsung.

2) Teaching dance and fitness classes for over a year at studios, schools, and clubs, such as the prestigious CRUNCH Club RX, DefDance, and Equinox.

3) True passion is, and always has been, dance. Continues to develop multiple skills from a wide array of disciplines including Muay Thai kickboxing, Latin jazz, hip hop, and yoga, to name a few.

Eye/Hair Color: Dark mysterious eyes, and dark (slightly messy) hair
Heritage: Biracial (Korean father, Eurasian mother)
Biggest Inspirations: Michael Jackson and Rain (K-Pop)
Favorite Food & Drink: Chicken wings. Chai tea. Water. Smirnoff.
Favorite Sport: Dance. Motorcycling. Rollerblading.

In 6 Words: Suave, attractive, “badboy”, talented, sociable, enigmatic

Quotes: “[Dance is] more than a feeling. It’s a vibe you get from the music. It’s a connection with the body. My goal is to help others experience the joy and freedom I have found through dance.”
“[Hip Hop is] the dance to me. It moves my soul the most.”

“[Rainism is] a quite difficult dance by a singer called Rain. I respect him a lot. He’s been in a couple of Hollywood movies too.”

“Being healthy is not defined by the number of hours you workout or the amount of calories you eat. Eat in moderation and remember to move everyday. A fit, healthy body—that is the best fashion statement.”

EXCERPT (from POV of protagonist, Suzie Q):

There’s even a freakin’ roof garden at the top level. It gives an alluring, brilliant view of the city nightscape. Roxeth is a grand city, awesome by day but even more spectacular at night.

“This is so beautiful.” I’d like to turn a little to face Jo.Zee, another “view” for my eyes, that wouldn’t be too much of a bad thing. I’m lingering, breathing deeply, just because he smells so good. He isn’t stinky in the turnoff kind of way—it’s a sweet, natural, hint-of-a-sweat boy smell. I think I’d like this even more than if he were fresh out of the shower.

“I love rooftops,” Jo.Zee says, taking in the city skyline. “It’s nice dancing high above the crowd. Takes you to new heights.”

I ask if he’s ever danced on top of a building before.

“Many times...but never with somebody else.”

Heart With Joy By: Steve Cushman

Title: Heart With Joy
Author: Steve Cushman
PAPERBACK
Amount of Pages: 182
Release Date: September 1, 2010
Publisher: Canterbury House Publishing
Geared Towards: Teens
Extra Info: Check out the book's official site HERE.

"'Everyone should have something they are passionate about, something that fills their heart with joy. Those who don't, I'd say, are missing something'" (Page 45-6).


Summary (From B.O.B): In Heart With Joy, fifteen year old Julian Hale's life is turned upside down when his mother suddenly moves from North Carolina to Florida under the pretense of running her parents' motel and finishing the novel she has been writing for years. While Julian has always been closer to his mother and wants to go with her, she tells him he has to stay with his father until the end of the school year.

When Julian's father decides to run a marathon, Julian agrees to help him train, and the two develop the sort of close relationship they've never had before. Also, with the help of an elderly neighbor who loves to spend her days bird-watching, Julian learns that the most important thing in life is to follow your heart. And Julian's heart leads him to a passion for cooking and a young cashier at the local grocery store even as his own parents drift apart. By the end of the novel, Julian is forced to choose between staying with his father and going to live with his mother.

Wdebo's Review: At first, I wasn't sure whether I should read Heart With Joy but after seeing all of the good reviews for the book, I decided to give it a try and I am so glad I did. Heart With Joy really did feel my heart with joy, it was heart-warming and sweet, just such a wonderful read.

I just loved how the writing really made me happy. It was very simply written but very well done. The only complaint I have on the writing is the over use of the word "damn" as a substitution for cussing/swearing.

Julian is a character that seems very innocent but not in an annoying sense, it felt comforting to be able to grow and mature with him. He was a very likeable character. I also really liked the character of Tia she is such a good match for Julian. Actually, now that I think about it, I really like all of the chracters, they all have their own personalities that makes them loveable, well except for Simon and Julian's mom, I really felt that Julian's mother was very selfis hand just eww I would not like my mother to be like her.

Cafe Cover Chat: Well, my best friend, who is in love with birds, loves this cover, but I think it is ok, it is pretty but I've never been a big fan of drawn covers, but I do have to admit this one is a better one then other drawn covers. (B+)

All in all, an amazing coming-of-age novels that is able to be enjoyed by not only teens but also adults. A most definite must read! Sure to raise your spirits.

Grade: A

Ghostgirl By: Tonya Hurley

Title: Ghostgirl
Author: Tonya Hurley
HARDBACK
Amount of Pages: 328
Release Date: August 1, 2008
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Geared Towards: Teens
Extra Info: The first book of the Ghostgirl series.
From: Author (Review Copy)

"She grabbed her wrist and pressed for her pulse. Nothing. She brought both palms to her chest to feel for her heart, which should have been pounding by now. But there was no beat" (P. 34).

Summary: Charlotte Usher has always possessed a strong desire to be popular; however, she is more invisible then the school's unused lockers, and now it's even worse, because she's invisible in a more horrible way, as in she's dead. And gummy bears and super-popular hottie, Damen are to blame.

Charlotte cannot believe that she's dead and she's in total denial. All she wants is to go to the Fall Dance with Damen and maybe, just maybe get a kiss from him. She has to go through a group of dead kids that apparently need her for them to pass onto the afterlife, Damen's "All-American" girlfriend, Petula, and convince Petula's goth younger sister, Scarlet, to let her possess her. Then she might just be able to get everything she wanted during her lifetime, in death.

Wdebo's Review: I saw a lot of bad reviews for Ghostgirl before I first started it, so I was very nervous of beginning it. When I first began it the writing was ok, it wasn't the best but it wasn't the worse but I also thought it was pretty good. Then the character of Charlotte became more and more annoying. There are a lot of characters that shallowly desire to become popular but reading about Charlotte annoyed me more then any other character in Charlotte's position. After a bit, the writing got more addicting and I slowly started to liked Charlotte.

At the end of the book, I felt that writing was pretty good and Charlotte became pretty likeable, but I felt Charlotte's transformation came too fast, I would have thought that it would her longer to mature because she has always wanted to be popular. However, after a while, I found the writing to be very addicting after a while now I am really excited to read the second book.

I really like the character of Scarlet, except she was pretty cliche goth but she was pretty awesome and though the romance aspect of the book was very unoriginal but it was still cute.

Cafe Cover Chat: I have to confess that the biggest reason I wanted to read this book was because of the cover and the pages and just the overall look of the book. It is so beautiful book (physically) and just so pretty. (A)

All in all, though not the best in the beginning it does pick up after the middle and gets better and even gets pretty addicting and makes the reader want to pick up the next one.

Grade: B-

Spirit Bound: A Vampire Academy Novel By: Richelle Mead

Title: Spirit Bound: A Vampire Academy Novel
Author: Richelle Mead
HARDBACK
Amount of Pages: 489
Release Date: May 18, 2010
Publisher: Razorbill
Geared Towards: Vampire Academy fans/Paranormal romance lovers
Extra Info: This is the fifth book in the Vampire Academy series. (List of books on the bottom)
From: Library

"I couldn't do it. Dimitri couldn't die. Not yet"

Summary (From Front Flap): After a long and heartbreaking journey to Siberia, Dimitri's birthplace, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir's-and to her best friend, Liss Dragomir. It's graduation, and the girls can't wait for their real lives outside of the academy's cold iron gates to finally begin. But even with the intrigue and excitement of court life looming, Rose's heart still aches for Dimitri. He's out there, somewhere.

She failed to kill him when she had the chance, and now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and she knows in her heart that he is hunting her. And if Rose won't join him, he won't rest until he has silenced her...forever.

But Rose can't forget what she learned on her journey-whispers of a magic too imporssible and terrrifying to comprehend. A magic inextricably tied to Lissa that could hold the answer to all of Rose's prayers, but not without devastating consequences. Now Rose will have to decide what-and who-matters most to her. And in the end, is true love really worth the price?

Wdebo's Review: Wow, so after finishing Blood Promise [Click HERE for review] I was so unnaturally excited for this book, it ended in this giant cliffhanger and I just could not wait to get my hands on Spirit Bound and see what happens, and especially what happens between Rose and Dimitri. Now that I am done however I feel kind of torn, on one hand, the end...wow...the ending was amazing very well-written and another giant cliffhanger (>:( ) but on the other hand, the route it took to get there was not a very smooth one.

The beginning was ok, a little slow, and since there was no Dimitri that made it kind of boring. But that wasn't the thing that annoyed me, it was Rose herself. She is usually one of my favorite characters, she is posseses a very strong and bad ass personality, but in this book, yes she does have that personality, but her head-strong-ness and her totally disregard for thinking ideas through was frustrating. She gets into so much trouble and gets others into so much trouble because of her personality. And when Dimitri is involved, she just morphs into a total child, and is so pitiful...Rose, I thought you were stronger then that!

I also had selfish feelings towards Adrian like Rose did. I wanted Rose and Dimitri together, and I still do; however, I did not want Adrian to leave Rose. He is such a good person and so good to Rose, and I knew something bad was going to happen between Rose and Dimitri and I thought I would be important to keep Adrian next to her, even though it's totally obvious that Rose and Adrian...will never actually be, as in be what she and Dimitri are.

Now for the good things, because my ranting about the bad just makes it seem like a horrible book, which it's not.

After a ways in the book picks up speed and it becomes addictive like all of the other VA novels. It is filled with so much romance, drama, and action, it was like a vampire romance version of Black and White (The current TDrama I am watching :) ) minus the cop scenes. Once the good parts come, the book becomes so deliciously amazing, and drags you in until the OMG ending.

Cafe Cover Chat: I like the cover, it has a Vampire Academy feel and I'm pretty sure the two people on the cover are Rose and Dimitri..and well, "Dimitri" is pretty hot in this picture. (B+)

All in all, for Vampire Academy fans a good continuation of the series, and for those that have not begun the series yet...go...now! As for me, I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK!!

Grade: B+

Classic Friday (5): The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Movie)

Title: The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Language: English
Release Date: September 26, 1975
Director: Jim Sharman
Rating: R
Cafe Warnings: There is a tremendous amount of adult matter in this movie.
Actors: Tim Curry as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Susan Sarandon as Janet Weiss, Barry Bostwick as Brad Majors and Richard O'Brien as Riff Raff.


"Let's do the Time Warp again!"

Summary: Brad Majors and his fiance Janet Weiss were driving down a road one night when their car breaks down. With the rain pouring down and no one around for miles, they decide to hike up the road to a "castle" they saw a few miles back. When they get there, the handyman (Riff Raff-O'Brien) that answers seems a bit on the strange side. When they get into the mansion they see just how weird the whole place is. As they are taken into the Frank-N-Furter's (Curry) convention and immersed in "The Time Warp". Later they are taken into his lab and see his creation, Rocky Horror, a new-born, innocent, blonde "god" :) Brad and Janet's life alters completely from that moment as they are dragged into the world of Frank-N-Furter, the transexual transavanian scientist.

Trailer...



Wdebo's Review: I first watch RHPS during the Freshmen year, I loved it, but I only watched half of it because YouTube blocked the other parts :( So, when I found out that Glee was doing a RHPS episode I decided to rewatch it (the whole thing!) Even the second time it was wonderful and awesome, it's just so weird but so addicting, no wonder it's a cult classic!

The characters are so over-the-top, you have Janet and Brad who seem like they're very clean cut but they turn out to have a dark side too that is brought out by being in Dr. Frank-N-Furt's life. And everyone in the house is so...weird..but awesome. And of course there is the doctor himself played by Tim Curry, and I just have one thing to say. TIM CURRY IS A GENIUS!!!!! He is soo amazing his acting is so good and so convincing, such a wonderful actor, and he has really good legs which is scary....

However, even though this movie is like awesome, in all actuallity it is actuality it is a bad movie. It is low budget like, it has cheesy 80's things going on, the lyrics of the songs are quite weird, but it is still so amazing for some reason!

Seriously, if you haven't watched this go have some kind of RHPS day and just have a wildly fun time!

Grade: A-
