A New Story Emerges…

I’m writing a new story, and it’s about…

…a platypus.

Yes, you read that right. 

Anyway, it’s super cool and I’m having loads of fun writing it. I haven’t published any of the chapters yet because I still need a cover, and I’m also hoping to round up a little audience to present it to. 

Now, you’re probably wondering why you should even consider reading my dumb story about a platypus, so I guess I ought to give you a little elevator pitch to give you a little idea of what this story is about:

Everything is chipper for Mr. Platypus. So chipper that it couldn’t possibly be right if he didn’t have his fair share of concerns. In fact, Mr. Platypus has come down with an illness. But this is no ordinary bug; no, he has been plagued with curiosity. And as anyone with even two cents in their wallet could tell you, curiosity always means trouble. This is the tale of Just What Exactly Happened To Mr. Platypus, because god knows you’ve been dying to find out.

Vague, I know. But that’ll make the actual reading part more fun! Are you excited yet?! 

Anyway, regarding my other story Marion’s Hideaway that I have still yet to finish, I’ll probably finish it eventually. All I know is that this new story has been really fun, and my focus is on that for now.

Chapter 10: Climate Change is Available Now!

Marion’s Hideaway returns after a (much longer than anticipated) hiatus! Since it’s been a very long while, and I’ve gotten many new followers since I last updated, I’ll fill you in on what this is.

Marion’s Hideaway is a story I’ve been working on for about two years now. It started as a completely ridiculous tale created from me and a few friends playing the “Story Game”, where you go around and create a story together. It’s just fantastic. I really believed in the story though, and I took it, refined it a bit, and started writing. However, the story has changed tremendously since then. I took my new imagining for this story and started writing it on Wattpad, a wonderful site where you can write your stories, as well as read other people’s works.

Anyway, you can read the latest chapter here.

Adventure Time Review: Season 6 Episode 16 (Joshua and Margaret Investigations)

Yet another episode where the titular characters only make small appearances, however, this time it’s done in a way that could possibly strengthen a particular character. That’s right, we get to see more of Jake’s parents!

The Plot

It’s Jake’s birthday, and Finn and BMO are dying to know what his birth story is. So, we follow Joshua and Margaret (who is pregnant with Jake at the time) as they investigate miscellaneous crimes for money, and eventually give birth to everyone’s favorite magic dog! However, let’s just say that things don’t exactly play out the way you might expect.

Spoilers from here onwards…

Okay, so can I rant for a second?

I have found this season very disappointing so far. Why? Well, to put it simply, there just hasn’t been enough Finn and Jake. Adventure Time just so happens to have an extensive cast of characters, and they’ve really been focusing on these other characters this season. Now, usually this would be a good thing, but I just feel like they’ve been pushing the real “main” characters to the side a bit too much. I just miss seeing F & J go on adventures, or even just doing nothing together. Now don’t get me wrong, there have been some pretty good Finn and Jake episodes this season; for example, I really liked Furniture and Meat, and Ocarina was pretty good too, but that just isn’t enough. The season started off perfectly, and I had such high expectations for this season, and they just haven’t been met yet. I’m cool with focus shifting to the side characters every now and then, but there needs to be balance.

Okay, rant over. So the episode:

I liked it! Although we don’t see much of our main characters, we do get a bit of interesting story on what Jake is and where he came from. Joshua and Margaret are cool characters that we haven’t seen much of at all, and it was fun seeing them sniff out mysteries and stuff. However, the part that sticks out to me the most is the ending. Like, what the heck.

Basically, this creepy monster that can morph and transform into different things and shapes bites Joshua on the head. This leads to a very Alien-esque scene of Joshua giving birth to Jake, and then immediately following that, Margaret gives birth to Jermaine, Jake’s brother. Pretty crazy. The worst part is, they decided to not tell Jake, so he doesn’t even know! I’m hoping this all leads to more backstory on Jake, but who knows, it could just be a throwaway gag, although Adventure Time rarely ever does that.

So what did you think of the episode? Did you hate it? Love it? Let me know!

Did you enjoy this little ramble? If so, consider following The Critic’s Canvas for all your critical needs.

Chapter 6: A Stuffed Nightmare is Available Now!

I’m a little late on the update, but no matter! Here’s a new chapter of Marion’s Hideaway!

Marion has gotten herself into quite the predicament, and it’s up to Tuck to set things straight! Will Marion and Tuck escape with all their internal organs? Read to find out!

I tried to squint through the harsh darkness, but to no avail. I heard movement around me and voices spoke in a hushed whisper. “Someone has entered our domain.” I heard one say, “No one leaves alive.”

You can read the full chapter here.

Chapter 3: A Question Ignited is Available Now!

Quick Note:
I apologize to everyone who reads my Adventure Time and Korra reviews, and is wondering where my reviews of the latest episodes are. I’ve been on vacation, and I’ve had really crap internet, meaning I can’t easily get the screenshots I want, and I can’t rewatch the episodes very easily. I’ll make sure I’m caught up before the next episodes air.

So I’ve decided that Wednesday and Sunday will be the days when I post new chapters of Marion’s Hideaway, so mark your calendars!

Story:

Tuck’s speech is today, and Marion really isn’t all that interested, to be blatantly honest. Instead, maybe she’ll have a drink and make a few new friends!

I began to zone away from Tuck’s speech. Don’t get me wrong, Forest politics are a good time and all that, but I think I’d rather be getting mauled by a bear at the moment. Unfortunately, there was not a bear to be seen.

Haven’t started reading my book yet? Well, first of all, read it because it’ll make me happy. But if you’re gonna need a bit more convincing than that, maybe I could provide a little story synopsis:

How often do we look deep inside ourselves, looking for happiness, only to find a whole new world? Marion, a 16 year old girl, lives in a self-created paradise, where everything is exactly the way she wants it. No troubles. No heart-breaks. No letdowns. However, one would say that the more attached we get to our minds, the more detached we are from what’s real. Today, the perfection dies.
