*drumroll sounds* 

The winner

isss

sssssss

DEAMI!!!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS DEAMI!!!!!!!!!!!!! *throws out party streamers and passes everyone celebration chocolate* I’ll email you your prizes soon!!!!!!!!!! Probably over the weekend!!! 

(Now I must admit the following post is kinda long and feel free to skim it, since we know that we all do that anyways. XD)

Now today I have two AWESOME tags for y’all today!!!!!!! The first is the one and only (as far as I know, that is XD) WOULD YOU BE TAG BY RIBBON ASH AT VIRTUAL PAPERRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Da rules…

1. Link this post so everyone can see the descriptions. (You can find the lovely post right here!!)

2. List only the names of the positions or beings at the beginning or the end of your post. 

3. Read each description carefully from each WIP category.

4. Pick 1 position/being from each category. It can only be 1. More than 1 is not allowed.

5. Explain why you picked these. 

6. Tag people if you can.

Sooo I must admit, the whole team at TWN was tagged for this and I, er, stole it from them. XD What? I wanted to make sure I had a decent amount of time to fangirl over this certain character.

From the world of Snakearaha:
  • Assassin Soldier?
  • Dragon Shapeshifter?
  • Captain of the Ocean?
  • Beast Whisperer?
Okay, I’m going with Dragon shapeshifter, ’cause guys DRAGONS!!! Need I say more? Plus, needing the ocean for my power source would mean that I’d have a good reason to go to the beach a lot. Really, you just can’t beat dragons. In fact the story idea that I’ve been planning a bit actually has a dragon shapeshifter, though it’s not as cool as Ribbon Ash’s ones.
From the world of the Nine Siblings:
  • Kitsune?
  • Willow?
  • Swan Guardian?
  • A person with mysterious power related to darkness?
I think I’m gonna go for the Willow. I mean, think about it, y’all, if you ever need to hide in a forest, just zap, transform and your good to go. No one will find you. Plus, according to the post, Willow’s heal much faster than humans, and that’s just all around useful. 
From the world of FHE:
  • Cyborg?
  • Cat’s Blood?
  • Flawless?
  • Silhouette?
GUYS, do y’all know how long I’ve been waiting to get here!!!!!!! NOW I can FINALLY fangirl over that character. Hands down, I’m gonna be a cyborg. Now, I should let y’all know one of the most epic characters ever (even more epic than my beloved Sage, y’all) is IN THIS STORY and he’s a cyborg and he’s just AWESOME and when I’m a cyborg too, I shall meet up with him kick Blossom outta the way, ’cause she’s just competition and we can like do whatever it is he’s gotta do in the story and it’ll just be PERFECT!!!!!! Also, this dude I’m talking about is named Smoke and I’m actually dedicating this blog post to him. So shout-out to mah boy, Smoke!!!!!!!! 
From the world of Reflection:
  • Doppelgänger?
  • The Masked Man?
  • Thief?
  • Famous Hero?
Gonna go with thief, and that’s not entirely because it sounds really cool. Most of this choice is really just being influenced by Aladdin. *sighs as I’m thinking about how much I love that movie*

Who wants to go hang out with Aladdin with me? (Raise hands in the comments and you’ll officially be my new best friend. XD)

From the world of The Silent Nation:
  • A Mute Rebel?
  • A Robot?
  • A Law Keeper?
  • A person with Mysterious Origins?
Okaaaaay so this was a tough choice. I reallyyy wanna be a person with mysterious origins but I’d rather not dye my hair and have tattoos, sorry peeps those are just not my thing. So I’m gonna go with a robot. (???) I think I’m gonna end up regretting this choice. XD
From the world of Mind and Soul:
  • Mind Reader?
  • Mind Mover?
  • Soul Switcher?
  • Teleporter?
Okay, I’m going with teleporter (this was sooo hard, though). All I have to do is run really fast and I’m wherever I wanna be. I mean, sure there are some downsides but if I can figure out how to use this power to transport myself to Arthenlay, you better believe I’m all in. (Note: Arthenlay is my genie kingdom in Into the Lamp.)
And now I tag:
  • Ally M. J. (really, girl, I wanna hear your answers, so you can put them in the comments)
  • Kayleigh Idea
  • Aaannnddd Kat (since I did steal the tag from you XD)
THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH FOR TAGGING ME RIBBON ASH I HAD SOOOO MUCH FUN DOING THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now onto my second tag (apologies for the long post but this tag has been waiting a while). I must admit I was tagged for the AWESOME Reflections Tag mooooonths ago, but hey, the most important thing is that I’m FINALLY getting to it, right? Anyway, THANK YOU SOOO MUCH TO THE SPECTACULAR GRACE for tagging me!!!!!!!!!!!!
And the rules continue:

Thank the person who tagged you (THANK YOU SOOO MUCH, GRACE!)

Share 8 things that God has blessed and/or taught you in 2020

Tag 5+ bloggers

#1. God has taught me to wait on His perfect will and timing. 

The biggest area I grew in that has impacted me, is how to be patient. Now, I must admit, I’m still absolutely 100% terrible at this. I still get impatient and want to rush things to be my will, my way, but God’s been teaching me that He has a MUCH better plan than I do, and now I need to wait. This song has greatly impacted me a lot. It’s called “Patient” by Apollo LTD and the lyrics that especially speak to me are: Help me to be okay with what I can’t change and remind me there’s meaning in the waiting // Help me to be patient // Through every valley there’s a mountain on the other side // it’s at the bottom where You’re teaching me how to climb //

#2. God is always working

While I’m waiting, it doesn’t mean I’m waiting on God to do something. He’s ALWAYS working, even when we don’t know it. This song has spoke to me a lot about that. It’s called “Way maker” by Michael W. Smith. You are way maker, miracle worker, promise keeper, light in the darkness // You are here moving in our midst // I worship You // even when I can’t see it You’re working //

#3. God is faithful when I am faithless

All I can say is that it’s true, y’all.

#4. God wants me to be a peace-maker
#5. God values my relationship with Him

I mean, why do you think God cares about if you read your Bible, go to church, and pray??? Because He love YOU and He wants you to know him better and grow deeper in your walk with Him. He values your relationship with Him which is why He doesn’t want you to just toss it aside and take it for nothing. It’s a gift to be able to be God’s friend and child. Treasure it!

#6. God is full of grace 

Last year was a year where I fell more than I rose. But God still loves me even when I mess up. This song just basically says it all. It’s called “You Are More” by my favorite band, Tenth Avenue North. You are more than the choices that you’ve made // You are more than the sum of your past mistakes // You’ve been remade // This is not about what you’ve done, but what’s been done for you //

#7. God is always here

By Your Side” also by Tenth Avenue North has spoken a lot to me. Why are you striving these days // Why are you crying, let Me lift up your face // just don’t turn away // I’ll be by your side wherever you fall // in the dead of night, whenever you call // please don’t fight these hands that are holding you //

#8. His blessings are new every morning

So that’s just been a bit of what God has taught me and is continuing to teach me. THANK YOU SOO MUCH for the tag, Grace!!!!!!!!! I LOOOVED doing it!!!!!!!!

if you love Tenth Avenue North, you are tagged

IN the comments: Who’s your favorite music artist? Have you seen Aladdin? Who skimmed the post? (Meeee XD) Who wishes Issabelle would write shorter posts? (Again, meeee 😂) I try, y’all. SO hard.

Issabelle Perry is a devout follower of Jesus Christ and an extroverted, slightly crazy, teenage published author of YA fantasy. On the rare occasion when she's not plotting and pursuing her next story idea, you can find her reading, blogging, graphic designing, searching the web for odd facts about the middle ages, hunting for Narnia in wardrobes, or envisioning herself wielding a magnificent sword (but due to her clumsiness, let’s hope that never happens). This self-proclaimed exclamation mark enthusiast and obsessed fan of LOTR and The False Prince (by Jennifer A. Nielsen), is a co-founder of Teen Writers' Nook where she and her sisters are dedicated to motivating and supporting young authors. What she's probably doing right now is fangirling about her favorite books to random people, trying to figure out how to fit the five new books she bought on her overflowing bookshelf, or scanning the pantries for chocolate.

  • Grace A. Johnson

    Girl, as I was reading that last tag, I was thinking “Maybe Izzy wouldn’t mind if I stole this from her…” then, lo and behold, you tagged me!!!!!!! Thank you SO much!!!!!

    Favorite artist: Lifehouse. Hands-down, no shadow of a doubt, Lifehouse. I love them. I do like a lot of songs by Tenth Avenue North, though–and we sing “Way Maker” at our church, and, boy howdy, is that song POWERFUL!!!

    No, I haven’t seen either the old Aladdin movie or new the live-action one, but I’ve heard so many good things about the new one!

    And I will not admit to skimming the post–which I so didn’t do…maybe… XD

    Thanks again for the tag, sista!

    • Issabelle

      lol. That is SOO AWESOME how perfect it was. XD honestly, at first, I wasn’t gonna tag anyone, but then I was like well, Grace might wanna do it and then I ended up getting some others. XD Although, I TOTALLY wouldn’t have mind if you stole it. I have stolen my fair share of tags and that’s just kinda fun. XDD

      Oooh, that’s sooo cool. I’ve never heard of them before but I searched them and their songs sound suuuper cool!!! I can TOTALLY see why they’re a fav!!!! Actually, I really like the one I’m listening to right now and they might end up becoming one I really like too!!!!!!! Aah, yes, Tenth Avenue North is AWESOME!!!! Oooh, YEA!!!!! Way Maker really is SO powerful!!!!!! *high fives*

      *gasp* Girl, I should let you know when I found out my older sister hadn’t seen it yet, I didn’t stop pestering her about it until I finally got her to watch the movie. XD So be prepared. XDD I’m kidding (mostly), but the new one really is good and I HIGHLY recommend it!!!!!

      Lol, I honestly didn’t think anyone would. XD Haha, I see, that “maybe” isn’t very convincing. XDD

      Hah, totally welcome, sista!!!!! Can’t wait to read your answers!!!!

    • Grace A. Johnson

      I am SO glad you tagged people!! I can’t wait to do this!! (Yeah…I’ve gotten into the habit of tag-pirating, and it’s surprisingly a very rewarding habit, however wrong it may be. XD)

      Ooh…which one are you listening to? “Hanging By a Moment,” “Take Me Away,” “Sky Is Falling,” and “Everything” are some of my most favorites! As for Tenth Avenue North, “By Your Side” is prolly my top fav of theirs! Oh, and you should totally listen to “Letters From War” by Mark Shultz whenever you’re in need of a good cry. That songs…oh my gosh, that song makes me cry EVERY SINGLE TIME!

      I’ll have to pitch it to the family one day! (But brothers + musicals don’t always end well. XD)

      Yeah, I didn’t figure it would be. XD

      Thank you! I’ll try to have the post up sometime early next month!

      • Issabelle

        YESS!!! me too!!!! WOOOHOOOO!!!!!! YESSSS!!!! I can’t wait either!!! (Lol, but you’re TOTALLY right!!!! It IS a veryyy rewarding habit. Honestly, tag-pirating is more fun than actually getting tag. XD)

        I was listening to “Hanging By a Moment” and then I heard “You and Me.” Man, Lifehouse is like REALLY good!!!!!!! But now I’m TOTALLY gonna have to hear the other three you mentioned!!!! YESSS!!!! “By Your Side” is DEFINITELY a favorite of mine!!!! I also really like “What You Want” and “No Shame” by them too. OOoh, really!!! AWESOME!!! I was actually gonna go listen to it right now, but my ear buds are dead, so when they charge up again, I’m gonna listen to it!!!!!!!!!

        YESSS YOU WILL!!!!!!! (Lol, I TOTALLY get that. You could just not focus on the “musical” part and instead focus on the “action” part in it. 😉 )

        Hahaha, XDD

        You’re welcome!!!! YAAY!!!! Can’t wait!!!!!! *jumps up and down*

        • Grace A. Johnson

          (That’s so true. Plus, when you’re never tagged for anything, you just gotta do it. You’re actually the second person to ever specifically tag me for anything, so I’m very thankful!)

          I take that personally! I’m so glad you’re liking them! Let me know what you think of the other three! Awesome!

          Me either! 🙂

          • Issabelle

            (Yep, that is SOOO TRUE!!!!!! Oh, wow, really? I’m honestly surprised. Well, I’m SOOO HAPPY I tagged you then!!!! *dances around* *pumps fist in the air*)

            YESSS!!!! Me too!!!! THANK YOU for telling me about them!!!! Ooh, YESS!!! I SOO WILL!!!! Also, I think I’m gonna have some free time tomorrow to read Six O’Clock and I am SO excited!!! *jumps up and down* Also, I now realize as I’m typing this that that’s also the release date!!! YIPPEEE!!!!! Perfect timing, if I do say so myself. XD

  • Mahitha

    Ooh, I love your answers, Issabelle!!! I picked most of the same answers as you!!! 😀 And yes, OF COURSE, I wanna hang out with Alladin with you! (I mean, who wouldn’t?)

    Also, CONGRATULATIONS DEAMI, FOR WINNING THE GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!!!🎉

    • Issabelle

      THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH, MAHITHA!!!!!! Ooh, wow, that is SO cool!!!! *high fives* YESSS!!!!! *jumps up and down* Oooooh, maybe Aladdin and us will get to hang with Genie too. (Maybe we’ll even get our three wishes!!!!!!!!! 😱) Lol, soo right though, who wouldn’t?!

      YESS!!!! CONGRATULATIONS DEAMI!!!!!!!! WOOOHOOO!!!!!!! *throws out confetti*

  • Jane

    BREAKING NEWS everyone!!!!!!!! Issabelle has FINALLY found a character she likes more than Sage!!!!!!!! *wonders if that even possible* *thinks really hard about* *realizes it is* *calls the newspaper because this is BIG news* XD
    *raises hand* I definitely want to hang out with Aladdin!!! But only if he gives me a ride on his magic carpet!! If he doesn’t, then it’s a total deal breaker. 😉

    Hmmmm, well my favorite artist is ALWAYS changing, and I really like Tenth Avenue North, but my FAVORITE Is. . .










    If you get to do long posts, I’m doing long comments XD










    I don’t have one!!!!!! I do have a top three though. *everyone groans* my sister is always asking me this and I always say I have a top three which drives her crazy. 😜
    1. Building 429
    2. Britt Nicole
    3. KB

    Anyway, I loved reading through the tags!!!!!!!!! Nah, I think you were good on the length, I mean, if I had wrote this post would probably have been wwwaaaayyyyyy longer. XD
    Oh, and I actually didn’t skim the post, but only because my mom had a meeting and I was sitting in the car watching my brothers and sister and needed something to do. 😂

    • Issabelle

      Lol, I was sooo wondering what everyone would say at that part. XDD YESS!!! I can honestly see the headlines in the official News of the Blogosphere paper. BREAKING NEWS: Blogger Issabelle Perry has found a character she likes more than Sage (it’s honestly about time) XDDD *also wonders if this is truly possible* *could it be possible Is is pulling everyone’s leg????* Hmmm something seems very strange. XDD Girl, I loooved all of this. XDD
      *also raises hand* YESSS!!!!!!! Oooh, GENIUS idea!! We shall find that magic carpet then if Aladdin doesn’t give it to us. XDD But I will admit that I am prone to belting out to “A Whole New World” whenever I’m on magic carpets. XD

      YES!!! SAMMEEE girl!!!!! TobyMac used to be my favorite and then there was Casting Crowns, Britt Nicole, Sidewalk Prophets, well, I’ll just stop there. XD Oooh *leans forward in anticipation and scrolls*

      Girl, You are TOTALLY allowed to do long comments. They are literally da best!!!!!! <333
      YESS CAUSE THAT TOP THREE THING TOTALLY SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING I'D DO!!!!!!!! Especially if it's driving li'l sis crazy, 'cause *cough, cough* I'm known for annoying my younger sister. Oooh Building 429 and Britt Nicole are some of my FAVORITES too!!!! And ooh, I don't think I've ever listened to KB before, so I'm totally gonna have to!!! I'm always looking for really awesome music artists recommendations!!!

      THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH, girl!!!!!!!!! Phew, I'm so happy to hear!!!!!! Lol, well, girl, it'd be fuuuun to read if you wrote it!!!!!
      Haha, well, that's AWESOME!!!! *high fives and gives Jane chocolate* Lol, I feel like watching your brothers and sister was what you were supposed to do, but I can TOTALLY understand why my blog post would be more interesting. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      • Jane

        A friend just showed me KB a last week. He does Christian rap. I really like his song “No Chains”.
        Now, there are a few times when it sounds like he’s saying curse words, but I looked through the lyrics and there’s nothing. 🙂

        *takes chocolate* *shares some with Issabelle*
        Haha, yeah I probably was supposed to be watching them, but they were all on screens and as long as no ones screaming I’m good. XD And I spent the time reading your post so it’s not like I wasn’t doing something productive. 😂

        • Issabelle

          Ooooh, that’s SO cool!!!! Yeah, I was checking out a song by him and man, he can rap like really fast. Oooh, AWESOME!!!! I’m gonna totally have to check that song out!!!!!
          Ooh, that’s good to know!!!! Most of the time Christian artists don’t have curse words in their stuff, so I would’ve honestly been shocked if he did.

          *happily eats my fair share of chocolate*
          Lol!!! XD Hahaha, honestly I just found this hilarious especially the part where if no ones screaming it’s all okay. XDD YESSS!!!! That’s a good point!! You were being VERY productive by reading my post. XD

          • Jane

            Hahaha, you find it funny until someone starts a who-can-scream-the-loudest contest and the car is full of squealing kids. XD I mean honestly? who knew they could scream so loudly? You would’ve thought we were under attack or something!! And my poor ears, I’m never going to be able to hear right again. XDD

            • Jane

              Oh, and I love the book quote for this month!!!!!!!!! I kept forgetting to mention it and I figured to tell you before I forgot again. 🙂 I don’t think it’s ever taken me this long to complement your book quotes. Oh well, I have a record to break now I guess. XD

              • Issabelle

                YAAAY!!! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!!!!! I’ve honestly been waiting for this comment like ALL MONTH!!! XD Though, actually there was another quote up before Fairly Impish was released and then I switched it. 😉 Well, I’m SO glad you did!!!!! I literally anticipate this comment every time the book quote switches. XD *gasp* YOU’RE RIGHT!!!!!! Hahaha, yes, yes you do. XD Good luck!!! And may your record-breaking journey be an easy path! 😉

            • Issabelle

              Lol, like can I say that I honestly seriously relate to this!!!!! My li’l sister can like scream some scary-high pitches. XD Lol, IKR!!!! HOW, HOW can they scream so loudly???!!! Hahaha, seriously, I can relate SOO MUCH!!!!!! Oh, no!! XDDD

  • Katherine

    *raises hand* YES YES YES!!! I want to hang with Aladdin!!!!!!!!!!!!😃😃😃 That would be like the BEST thing EVER!!!!!!!!!!!
    Honestly, I didn’t skim your post. First of all, that’s not something I normally do and second, you post wasn’t that long anyway.
    Girl, you know I can’t pick a favorite, but some of the music artist I really like are For King & Country, Mandisa, TobyMac, and Danny Gokey!
    AWESOME POST, Issabelle!!!!!!!!!!💗

    • Issabelle

      YESSSS ALADDIN IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES, yes, it DEFINITELY WOULD BE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Lol, yeah, I knew you wouldn’t. ‘Cause that’d go against the strict sister code!

      Lol, yes, I know you can’t. XD WOOHOOO!!!!!! Those are some of my FAVORITES too!!!!!

      THANK YOU SOOO MUCH, SIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <333

  • Ribbon Ash

    I didn’t skim. I don’t skim. I can’t skim. And honestly I thought it wasn’t actually that long? Hmmm, I maybe I am just use to long posts?

    Awww, you stole the tag from your sister/s because of Smoke? Haha, beautiful. OH, I love your answers and the reasons behind them!!!!!! <3 Haha, well, being a robot may be evil but at least you are in position of power. Robots rule the city. They even have more power than the empress in all honesty O_O Scary.

    Oh my word, Smoke better than a published book character who is called Sage??!! AWWWWWWWWW <3 <3 <3 <3 I can't believe it. You haven't even properly met him. <3 <3 <3 (Also, haha, Smoke is NOT impressed with you pushing Blossom out of the way. He was like "how dare this girl take away the love of my life????????????????????? How OLD she is again??????!!!!!!" XD XD XD XD XD XD)

    Oh, I love your reflections! They are so beautiful and relatable. And those songs. <3 I must listen to them.

    • Issabelle

      Hahaha, honestly, that’s really good that you don’t skim!!!!! *claps* I *cough* have done it before but not normally on posts I comment on. Lol, well, then it might’ve not been that long. Honestly, my definition of long posts are like anything I write above two paragraphs. XDD

      YESSSS!!!!!!! And I actually didn’t really ask them if I could. I was more like, hey, y’all, Ribbon Ash has tagged us for the Would You Be Tag and I’m gonna take it now let’s have some chocolate. XDDD YAAAY!!!! I’m SO happy!!!!!!!! OOooh, YOU’RE RIGHT!!!! *turns to the TWN fam* Alrighty, y’all hear that? I’ve got some POWER!!!! XD 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Oh, yeah, VERY scary, especially if I was one of those robots. *shudders* (We should all be concerned.)

      YESSSSSS HE ISS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean, I still love and obsess over my Sage, BUT Smoke is just well SMOKE!!!!! Technically not, but I know enough about him to know he’s AWESOME!!! And I’m officially the first member in the Smoke Fan Club!!!!!!!!! I can’t wait until I get to read your story, though. *hint, hint* XD (Lol, I didn’t think he would be, but Blossom is sadly competition. 😉 Lol, that TOTALLY sounds like Smoke!!!!!! XD Hehehehehe I’m definitely younger than Smoke. I think he’s like nineteen, right? XD XD XD XD XD)

      THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH, girl!!!!!!!!! Aww, I’m SO happy to hear!!!! YESSS!!!!! You MUST listen to them!!!! THEY ARE AWESOMEEEE!!!!!!!!!! <333

      • Ribbon Ash

        Yep, he is nineteen. Bahahahaha, Smoke is very concerned about your sanity but I told him it was normal and he is now shaking his head and muttering under his breath. Oh, and he said good luck in beating Blossom. 😉

        • Issabelle

          YESS!!!! Lol, honestly, we should all be concerned. 😉 bahahahaha, yes, Smoke, my insanity is quite normal and you’ll get used to it. Eventually. *cough* hopefully *cough* XD Lol, that just sounds sooo much like my Smoke!!!! Ooooh, I see he doesn’t think I can totally beat Blossom. Haha! Well, I see I shall have to take up this challenge (and find a couple of dragons…just ’cause I want to XD)

  • Ally M.J.

    So I just spent like 39.53 minutes studying ALLLLLLLLLLLLL of the lovely character types and can I just say… wow? Like seriously. WOW. I am RIDICULOUSLY impressed.
    ANYWAY
    Aw, Issabelle, you tagged me! I feel so happy! *sends Issabelle all the chocolate and cake* Thanks girl, you rock! My answers, hmm…
    1: Mmmmmmmm probably a beast whisperer. That way I might be able to find out if my cat actually wants to kill me or if she’s just weird. The dragon shifter one sounds AH-MAY-ZING too, tho…
    2: Fun Fact you may or may not know about me, I love foxes. Kitsune is a clear choice for me. Fox tails are so fluffy and pretty and I love them. 🦊= ❤️
    3: *GASP* ISSABELLE! Someone you love more than SAGE?! Impossible. This Smoke guy must be an absolute legend. I would probably go with Cats Blood, mostly because they sound incredibly cool and because I’m a sucker for cat ears and Japanese culture.
    4: Okay, these Doppelgänger dudes seem… somewhat creepy, ngl. BUT my strange, probably not entirely sane self writes horror books in her spare time. So yes, I will choose that. Wouldn’t that be so weird, though? Just to wake up one morning, look in the mirror and be like “HEY. THIS ISN’T BE ME. WHO BE DIS?”
    5: mYstEriOUs OriGiNs, UwU. I would rather not dye my hair, but I’d be okay with tattoos. As long as there’s not too many. If I did have to dye my hair and get SLEEVES of art on my skin, I might want to rethink my like choices, cause that would NOT be a good look for me. I’ve had brown hair my entire life. Having, uh, Sprite-green tresses might weird me out a little. But, having maybe light stencils of swirls and pretty designs for tattoos might be okay.
    Am I making this too complicated? 😅
    And 6!: Ooh, this is tough. I’m going to have to go with teleporter as well. I could go anywhere! Like I could go to Hogwarts, or Foxfire, or Arthenlay to hang with Genie, or I could go to Busan and get a new appreciation for seafood (not a fan right now, but I can learn) or I could go and see family (wherever they are right now) or ANYWHERE!
    (I could also do some serious planking on my brothers. Fear your baby sister, weirdos)
    That was fun! I need to do some species building in my books.
    Favorite music artists? Do you have any idea how hard this will be for me? I mean, I’ll try, but I can’t promise that I won’t ramble on endlessly about music. *takes deep breath and gets ready to talk faster than KB can rap* I like For King and Country a lot, as well as Britt Nicole, Andy Mineo, KB, Lecrae, Toby Mac, Colton Dixon (*cough*maybe a little bit of BTS, TXT, and IU*cough**cough*) Citizen Way, Newboys, Casting Crowns, Moriah Smallbone-Peters, Riley Clemmons, Switchfoot, River Valley Worship, Hillsong Young and Free, Danny Gokey, Unspoken, Austin French, Matthew West, Hawk Nelson, Tauren Wells, Courtnie Ramirez, Wande Isola, Hollyn, NF, Blanca, Jordan Feliz, Jen Z, Jamie Grace, and Mandisa. *pants* *looks around for water* *finds Sprite instead* *drinks the Sprite*
    I LOVE Aladdin! Probably my favorite Disney movie, period. Do you like the animated version or the live action better?
    Thanks for the tag, have a blessed rest of the week!!
    (PS: Sorry for any typos lol)
    (PPS: And Sorry this is so long)

    • Issabelle

      Hahaha, ikr!!! I was the SAME WAY when I first read the post. Yes, RIDICULOUSLY impressed over here too!
      Of course, I did!!! It sounded like a tag that you’d enjoy doing, so I just had to!!!!!!!!! *happily takes all da chocolate and cake* Aww, you’re TOTALLY welcome!! Girl, you’re TOO SWEET!! THANK YOUU!!!!! You ROCK too!!!!!
      Oooh, that’s a GREAT choice!!!!!! Hahaha, that would be cool to know what your cat’s thinking, though, I’m hoping she’s just weird. XD
      Ooh, I like foxes too!!! AWESOME PICK!!!!!!!!
      *double gasp* IKR!!!! Mind-blowing. Smoke really is, girl!!!! You’d love him!!!!!! Oooh, YEAAA!!!!! SWEET choice!!!!! (I know, I know, people don’t really say sweet much anymore, do they? At least, I don’t know of anybody. XD)
      Lol, yeah they do seem kinda creepy, but I’m honestly not surprised that’s the one you went for. XD Ooooh, yeah, girl that would TOTALLY be strange. BUT then you’d know for sure that you’re in a fiction story and honestly, ngl, that’d just be COOL!!!!! (Also, I’ve been noticing that now I say, not gonna lie, more than I used to. 🤣)
      Yeah, mysterious origins seems like the only one to go with. XD But, hey, if the whole mysterious origins thing doesn’t work out you can come join me in taking over the world as a robot. XD
      Nah, girl, you’re not making it too complicated at all!!!!!!! <33

        If you guys both become teleporters, I am SO making you guys take me with you to hang with Genie!!!
        And Ally, If you don’t mind bringing me to Foxfire with you, I would LOVE to meet Sophie and the gang. And if you go without me, I’ll find a way to be really sneaky and grab your hand right as you teleport there because there is NO way I’m letting you meet Keefe without me. XD

  • Victoria

    Uh, NO WAY DID I SKIM!!!! Girl, your posts are way too awesome to skim! (Besides I didn’t think it was that long at all!)

    Ohhhh, man, who’s my favorite music artist you say? *sobs because there are too many to just choose one* XD I’ll probably go wiiiiiith *thinks for 489723 years* Danny Gokey?!? Yeah, I’ll just go with him. There’s not really a specific artist I’ve constantly been listening to recently, but if we’re talking about contemporary Christian pop then he’s one of my favorites! Also, I did listen to that “Patient” Apollo LTD song which you sent to me and I LOOOOVED IT!!!!! (Sorry I haven’t gotten back to that email yet too…..I maaay have kept forgetting about it. *cringes and hides face*)

    ALADDIN, ALADDIN, ALADDIN, ALADDIN, I WANNA GO HANG OUT WITH YOU AND ALADDIN!!!!!! *pants like a happy dog* That movie is BY FAR my favorite Disney live-act remake EVER!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀 AND THE MUSIC. *swoons* Speechless is SO GOOD and have you heard the Desert Moon song they were planning to add in, but never did? You can find it on YouTube if you haven’t, but that one’s INCREDIBLE too!!!! All of them are just TOTALLY EPIC!

    • Issabelle

      Aww, girl, you’re just the SWEETEST!!!!!! THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!!! (Lol, well, I’ve recently discovered that when I say one of my posts are long basically I mean it’s more than three short paragraphs. XD)

      Aaaahhh, IKR!!!! There’s just TOO MANY GOOD ONES!!!!!!! *sobs with you* *grabs tissues and hands some to you* YESSS!!! DANNY GOKEY IS THE MAN!!!!!!!!!! WOOHOOOO!!!!! My *current* favorite by him is probably “Fighter”. AWESOME!!!! Though, any artist would’ve been fine, it didn’t have to be specifically Christian pop, though that’s about all I listen to. XD YESSSS!!!!!! I’m SOO HAPPY to hear!!!!! <333 That song is literally my life song right now. (Haha, that's okay!! Girl, I'm like sooo behind on emails right now, I TOTALLY get that!!!!!! Plus, you won't hurt my feelings if you don't respond!)

      YESS ALAAAAAADDIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 *pumps fist in the air while ignoring that pesky one ruining my amazing line of exclamation marks* YESS!!!!! Like SAMEEE!!!!! ALADDIN IS DA BEST!!!!!! 😃😃😃😃😃😃 YESS!!! THE MUSIC IS SOOO INCREDIBLE!!!!!!! *also swoons* Aaaahhh Speechless is really one of my all time favorite songs right now!!!! YESSS!!!! I have!!! Desert Moon is such a BEAUTIFUL song!!!!!! I thought Scott and I-forgot-the-name-of-the-dude-who-played-Aladdin did an INCREDIBLE job with that song! I heard a few people say that it should be included in the sequel that some Disney peeps have been talking about doing, and I honestly totally agree!!!!!! YESSS, yes, they are!!!!!!

  • Jen

    I loved reading your answers to Ribbon Ash’s tag!!! They were all so good! And yeah, I really love the Aladdin movie! The animated trilogy will always be some of my faves, but that live action was SO cool!

    And awww, Issabelle! All of what you said in the second tag is so beautiful! And I love a lot of the songs you mentioned! <3

    One of my favourite music artists is Ginny Owens. Her song Made For More is sooo beautiful!

    • Issabelle

      THANK YOU SOOO MUCH, JEN!!!!!!!!!! Aaah, yes, the Aladdin movie is da BEST!!!!! Oooh, yeah, the animated trilogy is also A-MAY-ZHING!!!!! But, yep, the live-action was SO good too. Glad we agree on that. 😉

      Aww, girl, really? I felt like it was just a choppy mess of my random thoughts. THANK YOUUUU!!!!!!!! YESSSS!!!! Those are some AWESOME songs!!! <333

      Oooh, I think I've heard of Ginny Owens. I'm DEFINITELY gonna have to look up her song, "Made for More." It sounds like it'll be AWESOME!!! THANKS!

  • Samantha

    First of all, this post was not that long! I have written much longer ones myself…like my Good, Better, Best 2020 reading wrap-up. That was ridiculous. XD I think one of the cool things about the blogosphere is that we all are willing to read long things, unlike on Instagram, FB, etc.!

    Aladdin. Aladdin is AMAZING! (The new one, that is. The old one is fine, but the new one is SPECTACULAR!)

    Okay, a LOT of the lessons you listed in your second tag are ones that I’ve been learning recently, too! Especially the one about His valuing my relationship with Him. And it was lovely to see them written out!

    • Issabelle

      Aww, girl, I’m SOO glad to hear!!!!!! <333 Oooh, that post sounds like SO much fun! I'm gonna have to go check it out!!!!!!! (LOVE the post title btw!!!! <33) Oooh, yes, I totally agree with you on that!!!!!!!!!

      YESSS!!!!!! Aladdin is just THE BEST!!! *really wants to just start randomly singing "A Whole New World"* (YESSS!!!! AGREE!!!! I do love the old one but the new one was just MIND BLOWINGLY AMAZING!! *high fives ya*)

      Aww, really? That's soo cool!!!! <33 Aaahh, yes, that one has been something God's been really teaching me about!! Aww, I'm just SOO happy to hear that!! THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <333 And THANK YOU for stopping by!
