And The Winner Is...





Charlie Smith, and his character, Geoffrey Scrutinous!

Wow, that competition had a lot of entries. The astonishing thing was the sheer quality on display, making it almost impossible to pick the winner. I know a lot of you- most of you- sent in a character, and by the time I had narrowed it down to the final twenty, I was actually starting to feel bad. The vast majority of entries were brilliant, and yet only one person could win. Did that mean that everyone else would sag, and sigh, and wander away to reflect on how unfair life was? Did that mean that everyone else would assume this meant that THEIR character wasn’t any good?

This... troubled me, my minions. And I do not like to be troubled.

I chose Charlie’s entry because not only was it simply one of the very best, but also because Geoffrey Scrutinous is a very useful character. The entry itself, in its entirety, was exceedingly well-written, amusing, and fun, and the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I actually NEEDED this character to be in these books.

But there are so many other characters that I could have picked. You all came up with some fantastic names, some incredible descriptions, and some awesome powers. It dawned on me as I was reading through them all that, really, any of these characters could have won, and I’d have been perfectly happy. So what does that mean, for YOU, my amazingly creative minions?

It means you should write. You should take this opportunity to look at the character you came up with and put him or her or it into your OWN story. Why not? You obviously believed in it strongly enough to send it in, right? So why abandon it now? Why not take it and run with it? 

Write your own story, write your own book. Most of what I read was definitely good enough.

Look at your character. Think about your character. Work out what kind of story would best show them off, and write it. That’s what I did with Skulduggery, and look at me now. I didn’t get to be your golden god without having a little FUN, you know.

And just to clear some things up:

The game I played to celebrate finishing Mortal Coil was Red Dead Redemption on the PS3.

I would LOVE to see a Skulduggery caramelldansen.

Happy belated birthday, Insanity Moonshine...!


Oh, and rest assured, in my next Blog entry I will be back to my usual, non-caring self.

FIRST COMMENT!!!

Ayries said...

A Skulduggery caramelldansen would basically be the greatest thing to ever exist. C'mon, someone who can use Flash HAS to do it!

Geoffrey sounds awesome. Can't wait to see him in the book!

Lynith said...

Haha, okay I've read the actual blog now. I just wanted to be first so I had to post without reading it oops... Aww little Derek is being all mushy and caring! How cute is that ahahaa!!

I tried writing a story, but it didn't get very far. I couldn't make the plot go anywhere... then again I was in year seven.

Anyway I'm making a scrapbook at the moment so I don't think that I have enough time to do that AND revise AND write a story. Maybe in the near future of my three month summer holliday though.

Lynith said...

Okay, just so the previous commenting strand thingyy gets carried over here is where we left off:

Song:

Let's all go throw apples at Jedward,
And pencils are made of lead n wood
I found an alpaca in a bush
And a guy next to thought him lush
I was quite sickened
But then my heart quickened
Coming toward from straight ahead
There walked David Tennant
He gave me a wink,
I swooned but then started to sink,
I looked down and saw some quicksand
But luckily David had a rope in his hand.
He threw it to me and I grabbed on tight
And he started to pull with all his might.
But then along came Santa who kicked him in the head,
And I'm afraid to say David Tennant is dead.
CONTINUE IT!


And the story:

Once upon a time there lived a small tribe of giant polar bears. They lived in a huge cave far beneath the surface of the earth because although they loved the cold climate they hated walking about in the snow and getting their prize coats wet.

Now within this tribe was their only young; two small twin polar bears. They were the only young because the polar bears are all too busy obsessing with the Simpsons to do anything else all day. One day one of the young polar bears (called Colin) wandered up to the surface. But when he got there he found that up above on the surface instead of a rock the was a blue sheet and a big ball of burning stuff... Shocked and scared of this blue thing above him he noticed that there was a little pink...

Continuee them both!!! Ahaha!!

Lynniee :P

Odile said...

YYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS THE SECOND COMMENT!!!!!! I DIDN'T EVEN MEAN TO GET IT!!!!! YYAAAYYY!!!!

Derek how about my birthday which is on tuesday??!!

What is caramelldasen?

I can't put Cornelius in my story because a bald man in a skirt wouldn't fit in a story about a runaway kid in a wheelchair. It is inspired from skulduggery pleasant. Oh and I never said but I totally agree with you when you said (sometime in the past.... or maybe you didn't and I just dreamt it) that you don't plot your stories. I HATE PLOTTING, it ruins the story because when you write it it is really boring but if you just have an idea of what you are doing in your head it's like you are on the adventure when you write it!



did you see a character called "Cornelius Cromwell" by Edel and Jack. That was me and my friends one. Did it make the top 20?


I will be expecting a special post on the 1st of June for my Birthday.

a long comment (I always seem to do long ones don't I?) from odl

Odile said...

NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! THERE WAS ONLY ONE COMMENT BEFORE ME WHEN I POSTED IT BUT NOW THERE ARE LOADS AND I DIDN'T GET SECOND COMMENT!!! NNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

VampiressBite said...

XD
I'll write about December Sun, don't worry!
(I love my characters too much NOT to write about them)

Roisin said...

If I saw a Skulduggery caramelldansen, my life would be complete...
Mr Landy, O-Mighty-Golden-Irish one, have you heard of the band that plays songs about Doctor who? Chameleon circuit, I think they're called.
They're very good.

I would write, but I never finish anything due to pure apathy.
Still, one thing is for certain. I'd beat that Stephanie Meyer and her glitter parade anyday of the week.
Oh yes. I went there.

emogirl4life96 said...

I AM SO GOING TO ATTEMPT TO MAKE THE SKULDUGGERY CAREMELDANSEN!!! Derek, if I suceed rest asured that the very second it reaches youtube you will be notified! Lol!

Roisin said...

And sorry for eating Dan, guys. Though if it's any consolation, he tasted delicious. Sorry. really, I am.

Roisin said...

And carrying on the song...

I cried and cried,
until my tears ran dry,
then along came Matt Smith,
With his smexy quiff...

Who next?

skyril said...

Hm maybe I will try to write...I tried to once, but I never even finished a chapter lol.I do think I'll try again since you, Mr.Landy told me to.By the way, maybe you can put some other characters in your book?Even if my character was merely mentioned as someone standing in the corner reading a book, I would be unbelievably thrilled.:) Simply a suggestion to make make your minions adore you even further. ^.^

Haha Odile I know I have to check before I post something because often another person has posted afore me.

P.S.Mr.Landy what do you think of us putting quotes at the end of our comments? :-]

Oops!I accidentally wrote my quote incorrectly!'Tis supposed to be, "People who follow rules do not come to me," China said."Which explains why I speak to the both of you with some regularity."

mrpleasant-blog said...

lol what was wrong with it Skyril?


But when I finished the first book, I was inspired to write my own story about a skeleton detective who has a cool hat...But his name is not very cool. His name is Jack Stan. And the story resembles something of Twilight (no body sparkles, I promise) mixed with Dracula...Oh, and if you haven't guessed, there's a vampire in it. I'm going to post it in the story section of my site soon if anyone wants to read. But fair warning, it hasn't really been revised. I'm like thirty pages into it, somewhere between 6 and 8 chapters?


I actually have a couple stories going but I'm not really working on them...just kind of have these basic plots and maybe a few scenes in my head, but they're more along the lines of a movie. See, when I write, I have a scene planned out in my head and it's kind of like narrating a movie...And that's why I want to be an author as well as a screen-writer/director of movies. My idols are Tim Burton, and of course, DEREK LANDY! :D Haha, I just have a thing for skeletons I guess? Also, I do a lot of what's called roleplaying. A lot of forum hosting websites have people that create roleplay websites and basically you register on the forum, make a post in the forum with a bio sheet of a character you will play as and write as, and then the boards on the forum are "places" around a town or country or whatever, depending on what kind of roleplay it is (i.e. animal roleplay, school roleplay, slave/master roleplay, etc.) and you write a "post" in your character's point of view and then the other person(s) posts with their character(s) and you go back and forth and you can create what's called a "mini-plot" which is just some form of drama that will happen privately between your character and another person's character. That's really where I picked up a lot of my techniques and you get a lot of creative people surrounding you, and it's just really great. To anyone who likes to write but not extensively, or even extensively, I suggest looking up RPing sites with plots you think would interest you. For instance I opened up a website that has not taken off yet and it's set at a school in California, US, and the Gods have descended and taken human, teenage forms and interact with the students, but the students don't know they're gods. Here's a link if anyone is intersted. http://godsmingle.proboards.com/

But, I am very happy to say that Lynn and Infernoe Joe have joined my pwnsome website! I'm waiting for more people...*taping foot impatiently* WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!?

http://mrxpleasant.proboards.com/


And Mr. Landy? Would you do me the honor of registering on my site? You don't have to go on it but if you would make an account. And possibly grace us with your presence every now and again? I would create a shrine for you! (not on the website..) It'll be fun, I promise! :D

(PS) Mr. Landy, you never answered our movie questions! There's a butload of them! Director? Animated or Real Life? Auditions? PLEASE ANSWER THEM!?!?!

(PPS) Here's something to put in your posts: Why did you choose the quote you chose? Simply because it's funny or is there a little something behind it? I chose mine because it sums up SP to a tee. Except he forgot to include modest in his list. lol.

mrpleasant-blog said...

lol sorry for the excessively long comment...:P

My bad.

Lenka said...

I am going to laugh ALOT if Charlie's character only manages to say "My Name is Geoff-" And then gets killed. It would be that funniest thing in the world and then we all wouldn't feel to bad about losing :D

Well, i took your advice and i did make a short horror story, only Piper is a baddie instead:

http://lenkashorrors.wordpress.com/piper-lei/

please read it! I might think about extending it later on... i'll sleep on it.
Thanks x

legi0nn said...

Oh. MY. GOD! Why didn't I winnn?!?! Jk, I love Charlie's character, just after reading the 'Indiana Jones' part I was already hooked xDD. It's really scary, but amazing at the same time that people can make such weird characters ;3 I look forward to seeing Geoffrey in the future books!! So Mr. Landy, you better write them fast :C

Odile said...

By the way Mr.Pleasant Blogger when I saw you blog I was like WHOA! And then I skipped it because I just didn't have the pateince to read it so (in a short version) can you please tell me any important things in that incredibly long comment (like seroiusly it's like bigger that my screen!) .


*sniffle* david.... nnnnnnnnnnnnooooooo
you can't leave me!!!!!!
wow you are awesome matt i like you better than david.... goodbye david (sorry david)

LYNN YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF!!!! THROW APPLES AND PENCILS AT DEAREST JEDWARD!!!

Oh and I have been wondering this since like forever what is with the quotes?

Lenka said...

the quotes are just random parts of the book fans find funny.

Ohhh....Miep is a fellow Roleplay too :)

Thats awesome...I Roleplay on Bebo =]

I never knew Derek had such a soft side to him!
He is kind of loving and caring! :O

Kind of sweet of you Derek??? ;)

Haha...Your much like Skullduggery, Derek, which is understandable... Tough and fights monster on the outside, but inside is a kind caring man who just wants to be hugged LMAO ;)

Hope you forgive me for the teasing!

:)

Corporal_Wolf said...

you have said about writting our own stories with our characters but would you allow us to reference your masterpeiece in them I.E. saying things like "we owe alot to the skeleton detective" or "Skulduggery may have been your inspiration but where is he now?" to add a twist to the stories or if we are lucky a crossover between your books and if we get them published ours.
also will there be anymore competitions for villains or other characters to be used by yourself in a book?

mrpleasant-blog said...

lol yeah, like I chose my quote (as I said in my post) because it describes SP perfectly. Except he forgot modest.

A few key points for a summary of my above post (though I recommend reading the whole thing because it has more insightful words in it..):

1. First paragraph just says how I created a story after I read the first SP book, and it happens to have a skeleton detective in it with a cool hat, though his name is not cool. And there's a vampire in it. I'll post it on my website

2. Second paragraph consists of the following points:

--I have lots of unfinished stories that are only plots and scenes on my head

--My stories are like narrating movies, which is why I want to be not only an author but also a movie director/screen writer. Therefore, my idols are Tim Burton and Derek Landy!

--For people who like to write but not extensively (or extensively) I suggest getting on a roleplay website (I explained what that is in my post and how it works)

--I opened up a roleplaying site. I explained what it's about in my post. Link: http://godsmingle.proboards.com/

3. Third paragraph I just asked people to join my site: http://mrxpleasant.proboards.com/ Lynn and Infernoe Joe joined.

4. I asked Mr. Landy if he would join the site

My (PS) I asked if Mr. Landy would answer our questions about the movie and in my (PPS) I asked why people chose the quotes that they did, like the background behind it.


So, that was my post in a nutshell. And I just remembered what I forgot to put in my post and Lenka reminded me. I wrote a story as an assignment for school one time, a short little page long story, and you know, being in sixth grade or whatever it was, my class didn't write serious stories, they wrote stories about Jesus and Chuck Norris climbing mount everest and coming across a colony of polotics. But I (being the overachiever that I am :D) wrote a real story. My teacher had asked us to hand in our stories if we wanted her to read them in class, and we could do either annonymous or named and everyone chose named but me. And this story was pretty creepy too, I'm still in love with it. I was such a little genius in seventh grade. And after she read it and said it was annonymous, the class went CRAZY. they ran around the room and asked and asked...yet no one came up to me or suspected it was me until my teacher asked if she could tell and then announced my name and everyone went kinda silent...ahh, good times. I'm going to post that story too...and I started writing like an addition but I'm not going to post that unless people ask me to. So yeah...lol this is going to be another long post, I can tell. Most likely not as long as the first one but still long. Ok, adios people!

Balaczter said...

I will draw a Caramelldansen, Derek. It'll be a still version, but~! 8DDDDDDDDDD

What the heck, I'll try and draw a complete manga for SP. :D

And the thing about writing is that it's so hard to get noticed when you're a kid. I mean, most publishers don't pay attention to you if you're under 18... Harper Collins set up a perfect little website where people can write stories and then they choose the best to publish, but guess what. Over 18s only. I know they only want to stop 9 year olds posting bad stuff, but still. It's a little ageist, not?

And I was wondering if you were doing a tour in Northern Ireland soon? 2011 time or something? I'd love to get an autograph~!

Lenka said...

I agree Balaczter.
Me and my friend did a experiment.
We sent off a few of her chapters for a little children's book she had come up with. We sent them to some publishers or something that we randomly found on google. we were sure it wasn't going to happen, so then we sent it off again, instead changing her age from 11 to 27, to see if it would make a difference. Then, just like that, three months later she got a response from the first publisher, then one month after that she got one from the next one. Finally, after a total of 6 months she got answers from the other publishers. (keep in mind that this was a couple of years back. i don't even remember who we sent it too)
Yeah, remember that we sent it off with her real age at the time? We didn't get a reply until 18 months later: and that was to tell us about a new book coming out.
She felt really annoyed and she just deleted the e-mails. It was probably stupid at the time, because heck, she might be a official author right now, but i can't help but feel admitting that she was really just a 'child' would've been thrown back in her face, like lying to a publisher and stuff. But now you can't even get a publisher's email without claiming what your age is.
Honestly. By the time you would be ALLOWED to publish you'd be 60 or something :S

Molly said...

heh heh... i just looked up skulduggery on dictionary.com and realized how fitting it was to Mr. Pleasant. Infacet, his name is somewhat of an oxymoron. here is the meaning:

1.dishonorable proceedings; mean dishonesty or trickery: bribery, graft, and other such skulduggery.
2.an instance of dishonest or deceitful behavior; trick.


I KNOW RIGHT!!!!!!!!!



I really would appretiate it if you would give us some information on the movie. I mean, it would be better if someone who actually CARES about you books (namely the people reading your blog) to get the role as opposed to some people with stage parents. it would be tragic if someone who only cares about acting because their parents have been forcing them to try out for different roles because they want their kids famous got the part.

unless, of corse, they were really good and fit the role perfectly.


hmph.

Congrats to the lucky winner! Geoffrey Scrutinous is an awesome moniker, can't wait to read about him in action.

Also I kind of want a Scapegrace and Thrasher caramelldansen now, lolol.

skyril said...

Miep in my first post the quote said, "People who follow rules do not come to me,"said China."Which IS WHY I speak to the both of you with some regularity."I's supposed to be "Which EXPLAINS".
Sorry about the not signing up on your sight thing.I sort of haven't figured out how to do that just yet.
Oh and I chose my quote for a couple of reasons.For one I think it's funny.Another reason is because I know Skulduggery is incredibly awesome, but I also knew virtually everyone would probably have a quote by him, which explains why I wanted a different person's quote.^.^

I know Molly!I looked it up a while back and was thinking how undeniably perfect that is!

Tanith's brother should be in the series. Just food for thought. All this talk about food is making be hungry. *looks in fridge All we have is fruits* I can wait.

inferno-joe said...

XD ive got a huge project due friday! XD!!!


also, I already thought of writing a story with my character Derek, BUT I CANT BECAUSE I WOULD HAVE TO CREATE A SIMILAR WORLD WITH MAGIC SO MY GUY COULD FIT IN!!!!!ARHAHGHAGHAHGA!!!

inferno-joe said...

and that would be copiing u!!!



I really should get started on that project...

Lynith said...

Haha sorry Odile but technically I didn't say to throw apples at jedward, I just said pencils are made of lead and wood. See I did'nt start the song... I started the story! So HA!!

Also volcaneo-gods I laugh at you rhyming same-word ending!!

Yes, getting a publisher to look at your work is hard. Even for poetry! Believe me it is so not worth the trouble. That is why you should just write the stories and hord them until your old enough to be considered by publishers. You know why? Because you will have an ingenious story that appeals to a younger audience (because you wrote it at the time you were a younger audience) and yet you can read it through again with a 'more educated and pofessional view' and improve it. Which then makes it good enough (hopefully) for a publisher!

My fool proof plan... sorta.

Lynith said...

There there Joe, it will all be alright :) By the way, love the new ending!

...Just James said...

Awesome job Mr. Smith ;)

Landy, i think you should post the top 20 characters, just to make people feel better about themselves and others feel worse :P

~DONT FEED THE IDIOTS~ (dw thats just a thing i put at the end of everything) :P

Balaczter said...

Little update on the Caramell Dansen progress so far... I have still pictures done for Billy, Jack, Dusk, Scapegrace and Valkyrie, and I'm planning on also doing Tanith, China. Possibilities are Skulduggery and Ghastly, but I'm not exactly brilliant at skulls or bald people (pfffft), but I shall try my best. :D

inferno-joe said...

um, i think im missing out....

wots a Caramell Dansen?

Kirsty said...

agreed. i feel like some of the rare people who have no idea what caramell dansen... someone please explain?

Balaczter said...

A Caramell Dansen is one of the most famous dances on YouTube. It's basically cartoon people sticking their hands above their heads and waving them around whilst swinging their hips. Many people think it's a Japanese song, but it's actually Swedish.

...Here, I'm no good at explaining things. DX
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAz2kk6z9lc
There. :D You can probably find better ones, but there's a typical example. Usually, they add more variety to the dances and have random characters pop in and jump about for a bit. |D

inferno-joe said...

cheers! just took a look, its pretty cool. alrite, gtg, still got that damn german project due friday....

Du vas k'hopt (i hope thats spelt rite..)

Geckogirl said...

ultimate question of the day: (btw this is the hardest one yet!)
would you rather live without sour cream&onion pringles or ben&jerry's cookie dough icecream???
its too darn impossible to choose!!!!!

Geckogirl said...

and btw Mr.Landy i tried writing a book with my character but then i had a strange dream about me and my friends in middle earth and i decided to abandon that book and write another one about that and THEN i was daydreaming in maths and i had a idea about a girl wizzard and an alpaca called arnold so i decided to write about that and then i got bored and now here i am. constantly posting comments on your blog.
thats just how life goes guys, its how life goes.............................PICKLES!!!!!

VannessaTide said...

dear Mr Landy
although i was quite dissapointed to find that my character had not been the chosen one i intend to take your advice & attempt to write a book about her. if im truly honest i was rather just creating a more interesting version of myself in the hope that i could appear in the wonderful world you create with your books. i am currently writing a book anyway. it's called 'the silver feather'& i have been working on it since about february. i hope to get it published when finished & if i do then you shall have a signd copy for being such an excellent model of inspiration to write.:)

Lara Jay said...

I probably won't end up writing a story about Ciara Perturbe, I've come to a conclusion she'll sit on my unused characters pile with a lot of others. I have more eccentric and facetious characters.

Congrats to Charlie though!
And a Skulduggery Caramel Dansen would make my life.

Odile said...

Inferno-Joe and Kristy I was one of the loners who didn't know what carmeldasen is but now I know.

Ok I do agree david was better looking probably because Matt looks like a turnip (not to mention he has no eyebrows). But I like Matt better (despite the eyebrows and turnip face).
(if you have not seen the latest episode of dr.who and don't want it to be spoiled then don't read this)

I am ssssooooo sad about rory.... they can't just kill him like that WWWWWWWAAAAAAA!!!!!



ok it is over you can read again.Geckogirl I would rather live without sour cream and onoin pringles because I ABSALOUTLY love cookie dough not to mention ben and jerrys






DEREK LANDY (haha funny second name) YOU BETTER BE READING THIS I WANT A BLOG TOMORROW FOR MY BIRTHDAY PRESESNT OR AN EMAIL AND I HAVE TO BE MENTIONED IN THE BLOG!!!! If you do that for me I MIGHT stop laughing at your second name.

Geckogirl said...

volcaneo-gods u must do a skulduggery and doctor who cross-over as it would be the BEST THING EVA SINCE SP! but u must include both matt smith and david tennant coz i cannot stand just imagining turnip-faced matt being in a doctor who story and not david tennant!
and odile im so sad bout rorry aswell! *crys*
also i cannot believe any1 could live without sour cream&onion pringles! i am almost as obsessed with them as skulduggery plesant (yes, thats how obsessed i am!)
once i ate 2 who boxes in one day!!!!

emogirl4life96 said...

I'm really getting there with the SP Caramelldansen! I'm doing it on flash and I've got the basic movements so far so next it just to make it look like the characters. Can't wait til I'm finished!!!

skyril said...

xD I didn't do what I usually do and read a comment then type something about if I want to and so on and so forth.So I'll comment about what I can remember ok? :-]

Ahhh I didn't know what a caramell dansen was either 'till I saw the video and the memory came back to my mind of seeing something like that sometime.

Irresistably EVIL!!! I live near New Orleans as well!So we must team together and send my dragon and your...whatever you may have to collect Mr.Landy and bring him there so that we may give him cheese and possibly fan girl scream once or twice and make him sign books.

Geckogirl the answer is most certainly Ben and Jerry's cookie dough ice cream.I adore ice cream probably a bit too much.

Speaking of spontaneous human combustion, check out this undeniably epic video if a song made about it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-o0wg-7_DI

OMFO OMFO OMSC OMFO OMFO OMFO OMSC OMFO OMFO DEREK YOUR BOOK WON THE IRISH BOOK AWARDS!!

ally pally said...

That's two amazing things. Actually two amazing things and one highly annoying thing.
The highly annoying thing is that I didn't get first comment.
The two amzing things are that Derek can be caring (!!!) and that the character comp. winner was announced. Well done Charlie! (see I'm not being a sore loser at all) stupid character thing. Stupid world.

Anyway blog again soon Mr. Deep-feeling-sensitive-guy

Insanity Moonshine said...

ALLY PALLY DID YOU NOT JUST SEE THE GREAT THING RIGHT ABOVE YOUR POST!?!?!??!?!?

Aimee =] said...

Seems to be alot of peoples birthdays coming up *Cough* June 12 *Cough* ;);)

skyril said...

*gasp* why did you not tell us Mr.Landy?You won the book awards???That is is incredibly awesome!You have to tell your minions about these things!!

Skyril

Insanity Moonshine said...

skyril, FINALLY soeone notices my post

Balaczter said...

@Insanity Moonshine: ...if that was directed at me, and I quote from a previous post:
"A Caramell Dansen is one of the most famous dances on YouTube. It's basically cartoon people sticking their hands above their heads and waving them around whilst swinging their hips. Many people think it's a Japanese song, but it's actually Swedish."
And the 'Leek Spin' by Miku Hatsune is Finnish. In case anyone else heard of that, too. >_>

This is reeeeeally getting off topic. -facepalm-

And I think Mr Landy is regretting wishing happy birthday... now he has a truckload of people to say Happy Birthday to now. Congrats, anyway, for getting him to say that. XD

inferno-joe said...

WHATT!! WHEN DID U WIN THE AWARDS? NICE WORK, DEREK!!!

You DID shake hands with Eion Colfer, right? *wags finger in a motherly kind of way*

Be a gud sport, now...

Kirsty said...

Congrats for winning yet another award for skulldugery pleasant! Found out just now and I'm so happy that skul man won. Anyhoo I'm glad to unveil the mystery of what caramell dansen was, and it explains so much of my brother's behaviour. How many days till the next skul book to come out? I lost track...

Geckogirl said...

OMG OMG YESSSS!!!! WELL DONE DEREK! and thanks for NOT TELLING US! it must have just slipped your mind while you were basking in the glory of winning!for shame derek for shame! you must tell your munchkin army everything before they start wispering amongst themselves and plotting against you!what did you think we were doing in our free time while we are not posting on this blog hmmm?

Avotica said...

There was a contest? How did I not know? I feel left out. I must have missed something, or maybe it was specific to your country. Hardly fair. Most probably I missed something. I am a little slow at times.

You must explain this character that you have chosen to be the winner. I want to know all about it, and I am sure that many other readers will also want to know about it.

It is great that you have finally dropped that depressing attitude that you had, and actually inspired people to write. I am happy for you, encouraging people like that. I'm sure if you realised the ramifications, you would have never done so...

You know, if I had known about that competition, I probably wouldn't have entered anyway... I have a great character in mind, but she belongs to me... That sounded more possesive than intended.

I will enjoy reading the next book, though I wish you would have based the story around another character. Have you considered killing Stephanie off? I suppose that might be a bit of a bad idea, to kill the main character. But still, she seems rather desperate to me, despite the tough act she puts up.

Have fun writing the next book. You will have to do it sooner or later, you know...

Geckogirl said...

ultimate question of the day:
which is better: cadburys or galaxy?????

Geckogirl said...

Avotica do my ears decive me???? KILL OFF STEPHANIE??? HAVE YOU GONE INSANE!!!!!! DESPERATE? STEPHANIE???? WHAT???? MIND...CANNOT....HEAR...SUCH....THINGS!!!!!!GOING......INSANEE.......SHUT DOWN! SHUT DOWN!

Geckogirl said...

KILL OFF STEPHANIE!!!!!! WTH!WTH!WTH!!!!!!! ARE YOU INSANE!!! IM SORRY IM NOT GONNA STOP BLOGGIN BOUT THIS FOR A WHILE AS IM AM SO SHOCKED!!! SOMEONE BACK ME UP HERE!!!! SHE WANTS DEREK TO KILL OFF STEPHANIE!!!!!!! *FAINTS*

Geckogirl said...

STEPHANIE???DESPERATE???KIL HER OFF???? WTH WTH WTH WTH WTH WTH!!!!!!

Roisin said...

On the subject of birthdays...
I was born on ~Halloween~, SUCKERS.
And congrats on winning the award Derek!
And yes. The fact that I was born on halloween does give me superpowers. Thank you for asking.

Bethany said...

Well, Derek. I didn't think you were capable of feeling bad, unless it was for yourself, but I'm pleasantly surprised.

Amare et sapere vix deo conceditur.

Geckogirl said...

DOES NO1 CARE! AVOTICA WANTS TO KILL OFF STEPHANIE!!!

Irresistably EVIL!!! said...

AHHH!!!! WHAT?!?!?!? KILL OFF STEPHANIE?!?!?! DO YOU KNOW WHAT SKULDUGGERY WOULD DO TO YOU IF HE HEARD- OH SHIT HERE HE COMES!!! *tries to compose herself* h-hey skulduggery, whats happening??? *twitch* mmm nothing much. what were you and Avotica talking about hmmm? *nearly throws-up* oh ummm. ju-just how great you are and stuff and how we look up to you and that you have the best sense of style on earth...*sweat* you two are up to something, aren't you? NOOOO!!! IT WASN'T MEEE!!! I WANT TO LIIIIIVE!!!! HE SAID IT NOT MEEE!!! *points accusingly at Avotica* way to roll me under the bus you freak! HE SAID THAT DEREK SHOULD KILL OFF STEPHANIE!!!! ITZ NOT MEH FAAAAAAAAUUUUULT!!! *falls on knees at SP's feet as he stares at Avotica*..... is that so? well FINNALLY. i've bbeen waiting for some one to come up with that. she's SO annoying. good job! *stephanie walks up behind an unsuspecting SP, grabs his head and whams it down on her knee* YOU'RE SUCH AN ASS!!! *walks to Avotica* AND YOU!!! IF I HEAR YOU SAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT AGAIN, I'LL COME TO YOUR HOUSE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AND RIP OUT YOUR THROAT!!! *Avotica cowers, SP gets up rubbing head* dammit stephanie! i was just kidding!!! *eyes widden* oh.....WELL YOUR STILL AN ASS!!! *walks away as i just stare on stupidly* ...........WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED!!!!

I know Geckogirl of what in the WOLD is Avotica speaking??Mr.Landy can't kill Stephanie!

WOW Irresistably EVIL!!!That's practically unbelievable!!I can't say exactly where I live though.Only that I live about half a hour away from New Orleans.I most certainly vote Derek Landy!I mean really, Derek Landy with a girl that can run up walls and is awesome with a sword, a girl wielding magic and necromancer powers, a large guy trained quite well in boxing, a teleporter, a genius scientist, a tattooed women with more magical powers, and, of course, a magic wielding, revolver crazy, skeleton detective backing him up.What does Santa have?some reindeer and elves?Oooo I'm quite petrified. ;-]

Congratulations on Book of the Decade!!

mrpleasant-blog said...

Whoa...alrighty there Em...thanks for clearing that up...

And I agree, YOU SHOULD TELL US THIS STUFFZZ DEREK!!

lol I see the difference now Skyril. Oh, and just go onto the website and click 'register' up at the top, and fill in the stuff. Easy!

I inform you that the cellist has now signed up for the website as well. I applaud all who have been smart enough to bow to my website's wrath. BOW! BOW BEFORE IT'S AWE INSPIRING WONDER!

And I recreated the polls on the site so here's a link to all of them:

http://mrxpleasant.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=debatespolls


I included the RemusxScapegrace fight and the LandyxSanta fight as well. Muahahaha.


lol I can't wait to see these Caramelldansens. And if you didn't know what they were, why didn't you look them up yourself, make yourself a little more savy to the conversation that's going on....

Also, nice plan Lynn. And the reason publishers don't offer you anything if you're under 18 is because you're a minor and that would be quite illegal. Minors can't sign contracts therefore cannot gain agents therefore cannot get published until reaching the age of 18 years. Yeah.


JOIN MY WEBSITE!! http://mrxpleasant.proboards.com

We all obsess over SP excessively, right? So, why not express it on meh site? It's pretty dam npwnsome if I don't say so myself ^_^ But it's not quite finished yet...it's gettin there...


Derek? *puppy dog eyes* Will you PWEASE JOIN MEH WEBSITE!?! PWEETY PWEASE??

(PS) ugh, I certainly have something to write about now, if i didn't before...The guy I like found out I like him and he's known for three days, but he didn't tell me that. And during those three days, every time we saw each other he was acting weird. but not weird in an awkward way, weird as in he was always really close and touchy feely with me...and not in a perverted way I promise XD...But it was still a little weird. And On top of that...my fish died D,:

Ugh, and my stepdad is being annoying...>.>

Yes Congratulations, Mr.Landy!Sorry I forgot to say that earlier I was simply aghast having not been told immediately that you had won.Anyway CONGRATULATIONS again! :D

I have seen the stupidity if Crux, but have you seen the utter deficiency of talent Scapgrace has?lol

I'M COMMENTING ON DEREK LANDY'S BLOG! THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE! *Dies*

Seriously, I wish everyone was as nice as you. And I wish everyone wrote books as good. Then I'd never run out of things to read. Don't ever stop writing. Your books are fantastic.

I have a Q. I know you don't outline your plots, but do you outline your characters? You know, talents, history, personality, etc.? Because your characters rock! I LOVE Skulduggery!

Are you going to post the description of the character you chose to win the contest?

Oh, and here, my answers to that poll thing.

Fave book:
Faceless ones.

Fave cover:
Dark Days.

Fave Derek name:
Derek Landy

Fave poll Q:
The first.

inferno-joe said...

lol

i wanna say, DEREK LANDY WOULD WIN AGAINST SANTA HANDS DOWN! (im loyal to the end, master!)

AND SCAPEGRACE SHOULD WIN AGAINST REMUX CRUX! (wot, he never wins!)

I had an idea for stephanie's death: skullduggery should like, kill her, and then, likke, this time paradox, like, you know, like, appears, and then, like, they bring her back, like, yeah...

wait, no.. im reading too much artemis fowl...

well, i cried for a day becuase my character didn't win! but i soon got over it due to some comforting words. I'm happy that i didn't win now becuase i'm currently writing a book and my entry was based on a character in my novel. so now it isn't copy-righted and i can use it!

ah, also odlie plotting is good. I had my first draft of my story and it was absolutly terrible. it was just: attack, retreat, attack, retreat. but now that i've planned and plotted my story is actually getting somewhere :)

There is a whole UNIVERSE of wierd that you have yet to explore, before you even come close to some people... Like us for instance.

And by us...

I mean me, the hordes of voices, alternate personas, split personalities, and fictional beings that my brilliant brain has spawned.

Be warned.
