American Monsters Tour

The third and final book in the Demon Road series is almost upon us... (of course, if you're in Ireland, it may be upon you already...)

Tour details are below. If you can make it, AWESOME. If we're not going anywhere near you, hopefully we will at some stage in the future.

I think it's about time I get to dedicate after all these years, eh?

Jophiel said...

I dedicate this page to the oldies - the family I met when I first poked my head in in August of whoknowswhen. Ink (Star) was the first person to say hi to me, and Nix and Zath were like the epic older brothers that I'd always wanted.

I miss that family. Sure, the new generation are pretty sweet, but I yearn for the days. I loved that atmosphere. We could talk shit for pages and pages, we could fill a post overnight (for an Aussie). Where Eve spammed the damn post button and filled a few pages of the same comment. Where Eden and I were a thing, then me and Dwyer(?) were a thing, and a few others...

But then again, there has been a lot of shit on this blog that I would much rather not remember - but it needs to be said. This blog made my depression so damn bad, you don't understand. There were certain people who made it worse (I won't throw names around), and people who I shouldn't have been responsible for. I've had several accounts claiming to be Chase email me. I've had people threaten to kill themselves because I was low. When I was planning on going, they made everything worse because they were going to go with me. There have been fights. There have been arguments and heartbreak and some of the world's most painful memories.

Anyone remember the Requiem Ball? We don't do it anymore. It's where I first fell in love. It was the highlight of my year for a while. It was glorious and perfect...

But that was the old days.

It's time to move on.

Now, all you newbies (and Noelle <3) this blog is yours. It's your responsibility. Either you can bring her back to her former glory, or you leave her to dwindle out with a few of you commenting every few days. But either way, the choice is YOURS. It's your turn to make a new Blogland.

Make us proud.

Aquila Felis said...

Hear hear.

Heh, I remember stuff even older than that. I remember when this blog had a cliffedge you could jump off, but you'd always safely land in jelly. One time we had a lake filled with liquor, another time we were attacked by an army of trollys.
It was quite insane, for a while, but also insanely fun.
... I think I once had an army of killer-hedgehogs or something.
... of course, they weren't all that deadly.
Still should have a treehouse somewhere round here.

Jophiel said...

Sparky's treehouse, yeah? And that damn cliff... I even had a base that ended up becoming untouchable because it was filled with acidic liquid light...

Damn. I miss it.

Aquila Felis said...

I had my own treehouse! It started off as a nest, cause Aquila was an eagle. ^^

Acidic liquid light? Why did no one give you a vantablack bucket?? Here, have one.
-hands you a vantablack bucket-

Inky Flame #2 said...

Hear hear! I really hope this place can be revived... I've met all you amazing people and it's just been a big part of my life. Like, I talk to Jai all the time, she's my best friend, and although me and Ed aren't together now, we are still good friends

Aquila Felis said...

Well, it's fun to have OCs interact? That's a solid base to revive this thing on.. because it was the live of it, in the first place. The whole emotional interpersonal things kinda... made it complicated.
But in the beginning, I think we were all just here to play with our OCs like we'd play with dolls. It's what I still do with Sven, and it's still fun to me.
Dunno, do you guys still have OCs to play with?

Inky Flame #2 said...

Yep ^.^ Inky is forever active in my mind
I guess she's my fursona

Aquila Felis said...

Aquila got a lot more sassy by now, and Swirl is a confident mess. They are fun to have in my mind, too. ^^
And Sven has like a whole horde of OCs. I sometimes lose track by now. xD

Not sure I remember Inky well, what's she like ?

Inky Flame #2 said...

She's a very kind and loyal wolf, loves her friends and family dearly. Ed isn't really around much anymore but she does her best for her children

I got a horde of characters too xD I actually made a list of them

Aquila Felis said...

I'm still at only two, but I doubt I could handle more. xD

Aquila is fine and fairly normal, but damn. Swirl and her glitter. ... tooo much trouble at times. xD
Technically, Swirl is far more dangerous than Aquila, but you wouldn't know until she shrinks you and cuts your head off with a scythe.

Inky Flame #2 said...

Hehehe awesome!
I think my main characters are inky, tawnee, felix and alys

Jophiel said...

*stares at the vantablack bucket*

Huh. That's ingenious.

Inky Flame #2 said...

Hello Jo ^.^

Jophiel said...

See, Rose is gone. She's been gone for a while. All I have is Joph and Sach, and they're angels. Joph is some innocent little kinky thing, and Sach just likes to torture.

Poor Rose...

Jophiel said...

*salutes Inky*

Rose is still cool if ya want boo :*

Aquila Felis said...

See? Ingenious solutions. Imma make that my business. One ingenious solution costs one cookie. The first one is free. -nodnod-

I'll have a cookie-empire in no time.

Jophiel said...

That means you'll have a dark empire... Doesn't that sound a little Star Wars-y to you?

Aquila Felis said...

Hrm, never watched Star Wars. Something about it just rubs me the wrong way... I very much like Star Trek, though.
And, who says they are dark cookies? They may be Leibniz Butterkekse - those are light! (And only original with 42 teeth. -nodnod-)

Aquila Felis said...

Correction. The cookies have 52 teeth, it seems. :p

Inky Flame #2 said...

Okay ^.^

I still need to see rogue 1 ;-;

Aquila Felis said...

... I still need to see the fifth Pirates movie. Dang, I love those movies. When the first one came out I was eleven, went to see it with my friend - and haven't missed one since. xD
Oh, and the second Incredibles movie is on my list, too. Once it's out.

Inky Flame #2 said...

THE NEW PIRATES IS GREAT

Aquila Felis said...

SHHH, DON'T SPOILER ME!

Damn, really need to go and see it soon.

Bbs, food

Inky Flame #2 said...

Okay ^.^ speak soon!

Imma gonna give my hula hoop a whirl

Jophiel said...

I haven't seen Star Wars either, but something about Empires or something...

*waves to Inky*

wanna know something cool...?

Inky Flame #2 said...

Oh yes please ^.^

Jophiel said...

I've spent over six months thinking I could never fall in love again after this one guy crushed my soul.

Now I've been talking to this guy I went to high school with and things are beginning to change...

:)

Inky Flame #2 said...

Omg I'm so happy for you!!!! I hope it all works out ^.^

I've... recently entered a relationship with a guy who lives about an hour away from uni
We met on an online pagan community and things are going great

Jophiel said...

Thank you <3

And aww that's really cute! It sucks about the distance though, at least he's kinda close!

Aquila Felis said...

Good relationships are so darn great. I already met Sven's family, and he's coming over to meet mine in a couple weeks. Gotta drag him around like five different families so my curious relatives have seen him all. xD
He's a bit scared. :p

Inky Flame #2 said...

Yeah ^.^ it's like one of the closests relationships I've had, and he's visiting me asap when I get back to uni

Awww well I hope it all goes well Aquila!

Aquila Felis said...

Oh it better should, I rearranged my room and changes some furniture just to get a sofa that extends into a 1,20 m wide bed - cause there was no way he'd fit into my 90 cm one with me. xD
I'll make him try all the German foods, too, and take him to castles and lakes and stuff. :3

Inky Flame #2 said...

Sounds like fun *.^

Aquila Felis said...

Sure will be. ^^ We have a castle on top of a former volcano, the largest lake in Europe, the alps, the black forest... we'll have plenty to see without leaving my federal state.
Oh, and Mannheim, the city of squares, where you can live in A1 instead of having a street name.:p

Inky Flame #2 said...

Awesome!!!
Here we have... well... sheep xD

Aquila Felis said...

Oh, I saw some sheep working in Austria that are a special breed, basically named glasses-sheep. They kinda have a black, glasses-shaped mask of hair on their face. ^^
Seems it's called Jezersko–Solčava in English, and the breed is older than the first wordl war... in any case, they look kinda funny. ^^

Inky Flame #2 said...

Awww that sounds cute!

Aquila Felis said...

They sure are. ^^ Oh, I'm kind of scared of cows though. Yes, they don't mean to hurt you - but even if they just playfully bump you with their head you'll get bruised.
In fact, cows are the animals that cause the most deaths around the alps - because people go along hiking paths over meadows with cows, with their dogs. And then the cows have calfs, and think the dog is dangerous, so they try to shoo the dog away.
But the humans think the cows are attacking their dog, so they try to get between cow and dog. They should just let the dog run away and come back to them later, but noooo... they get trampled by a cow instead.
-shakes head-
Cows. Kinda cute and usually harmless... except when they're not. >.>

Inky Flame #2 said...

My friend is scared of cows
I've never really been up close to one so...

Aquila Felis said...

Oh, just assume that their heads are as tall as you, but their bodies are as big as a bathing tub and they weigh easily a hundred times what you weigh.
Being scared of cows is pretty understandable, to me. I mean, they honestly, really don't usually mean harm. They are herbivores, after all. But yeah... a scared or angry cow is faster, stronger, and heavier than you. So it's best to keep a respectful distance. ^^

Inky Flame #2 said...

In the woods where I live some bulls managed to escape
I wouldn't have liked to bump into one xD

Aquila Felis said...

Ooooh, my dad has a good story about an escaped bull.
So, my dad was working on a farm for a while. And one day they noticed the bull was no longer standing in its place - so they ran out through a door in a huge, metal side of the barn, closed the door.
Just a few seconds after, the bull ran against that side of the barn, and the whole side lifted ten cm off ground before swinging back down.
They called the farmer. The farmer went in hitting the bull in the head with a broom. The bull didn't really notice being hit, but it knew the farmer so it went back to its place and allowed them to tie it up again.
If you ever see a farmer hitting a bull or large pig with a broom? Don't get upset too quickly. I swear, they usually hardly feel it.

Inky Flame #2 said...

Oh wow!

I don't wanna work tomorrow ;-;

Aquila Felis said...

What are you doing for work?

Inky Flame #2 said...

Packing facemasks 8-5

Aquila Felis said...

... sounds factory-y. Do you get to listen to music?

Inky Flame #2 said...

It is a factory xD
Yep we have the radio
But it's normally BBC radio 1 on which is crap

Aquila Felis said...

Ey, anything is better than Schlager.
If you've never heard Schlager, you'll find plenty examples on youtube.
People here joke that that music is against the geneva convetion of human rights. ;)

John said...

Well after a ded like that and having just let everyone know I'm still alive what kind of person would I be to screw off into obscurity again?

I do hate being called a "newbie" though, gamer thing.

Aquila Felis said...

I wonder if we're not all obscure, one way or another. I mean, most of us never met the other people here - or only very few of them.
So technically, you can hang around daily and still be obscure. ... though it works better if you don't have a picture of yourself. ;P

(I mean, my picture would be proof of a crime if this lilly wasn't a subspecies that is not listed on the threatened species list of just that one federal state in Austria I plugged it in...
... in any other country, if caught, I'd face a several thousand Euro fine.
Ooops.Actually, it probably SHOULD be a crime there, too. Just that they were too stupid to add all subspecies of that lilly. They only added the other one.
Just gotta love having a job where you commit crimes by accident.
Still need to improve my knowledge of plants.)

Inky Flame #2 said...

Haiiii John!

John said...

-waves-

Yo.

Inky Flame #2 said...

Dammit I'm always late

Inky Flame #2 said...

I hate it when a night out is cancelled last minute

Aquila Felis said...

Understandable.

I actually have a strong dislike for any kind of not keeping an appointment.

Adra Cruciatus, Little said...

I've stopped for the evening in london and now I'm ready to go home :) yay!

Jophiel said...

Turns out that guy was just another fuckboy.... >.>

In other news, guess who has the stomach flu and is house sitting and has to take care of herself without meds or painkillers?

This mofo right here

John said...

"What kind of person would I be to leave?" *IMMEDIATELY LEAVES*

You gonna be okay there? To my knowledge a stomach flu has never killed anyone but hey I'm not a doctor...

Jophiel said...

*hugs John gently*

I think I will, I'm just suffering right now... I'll be good eventually... <3

John said...

Mk, long as you're gonna survive it.

*Hugs*

It's been a while, have you been alright?

Jophiel said...

I know, I haven't thought about this place for months, and I thought it's about time to poke my head back around for a bit. I've been through a lot, but I'm decent.

How have you been?

Jophiel said...

Sorry for the super late reply, I lost a cat and only just found him.

Inky Flame #2 said...

Getting my new tattoo today
Nervous but excited

Aquila Felis said...

... how the heck do you even get with so many guys? Like, you make it sound like you mess up with another one every other week...
... if so, raise your standards dammit! You're an intelligent (probably, you got into uni), independent (you better be at that age) woman (by legal age?), so you can do better than half-assed idiots with fear of commitment.
Just sayin.

Adra Cruciatus, Little said...

I'm finally home.. it's so nice. But I'm also horribly ill right now, and might have to go to the Urgent Care because I have a hernia 🙃

Adra Cruciatus, Little said...

Which is perfect, you know, after 48 hours of travel.

Vivanus Keen said...

*slinks in, repairs all the benches, slinks out*

John said...

Oh, cool.

*Sits on a bench*

Jophiel said...

I have a kitty on my desk who keeps knocking stuff off.

I finally understand everything now.

Jophiel said...

That moment when you think something is due tomorrow but it's actually due the day after so you can either go to sleep before midnight or stay up to watch some netflix and be tired in the morning so you end up writing a comment on here instead because yolo and now you gotta go find the satan kitty because he sleeps on your bed and he's not here

Octaboona Ambrosius - (Eater of the Octa Octa no Mi) said...

Adra you were in Israel and London and I didn't know? I should check this blog more!

Hope you had a really lovely time, I'm going to be going to Israel on Wednesday.

Also I just got offered my first job as a library assistant which is super exciting!

Adra Cruciatus, Little said...

Hi Octa! I was indeed!! It had its ups and downs, and I'm still quite ill from dehydration and exhaustion, but it was an incredible experience. I was going to maybe meet up with Noam, but it was hard for me to navigate around Shabbat and also have money to get to where she is/ have free time at the same time.. :(

But lucky me, I was able to see Trip and Laura whilst in London, and that was awesome :$
Next time, we shall grab lunch! I'll drag along a whole bunch of you crazies and we can all meet up, for old time's sake! I hope to go to London next summer again!

And- really??? That's fantastic! *Many many hhgs* I'm so proud of you!!

Hey guys,

It has been years since I've contributed to the comment section of this blog. Im at university now, in my home country of New Zealand, but still love the books, and popped onto the blog randomly to see what Derek has been up to. I'm so sad that he has been inactive here, this place was my family all those years ago when I created this account (as you can see I had very odd taste in names). Everyday after school I would come online and speak to everyone, lile Eve and Flame Phoenix and Ink Star and countless other people who I would talk to for hours and hours until the comments reached the maximum, and then we'd hop onto an older post to continue on the conversations.

Those were the days.

My account says it was created in July 2011, but of course I was a fan long before that, and I'm lucky to say that I've met Derek twice now and that I have all of my books signed. I thorougly enjoyed his latest book, I managed to buy a copy from a bookshop who had put them on sale an hour before they were properly released, I was over the moon!

I'm just writing this to wish that everyone here is happy and to tell you all to never let go of the child that you once were. We all had such imaginations, especially violent ones thanks to Derek's books, and I hope a part of who we once were will always remain inside of us.

Derek, if you read this, I miss you and your funny posts, I hope to meet you again one day when you do your next tour.

Love from,
FreakFan
(Bianca, age 18)

Hi Bianca!

I don't know if you remember me, but I do remember you- we spoke a few times ^.^

I am pleased that life has been up for you, and I wish you all the best of luck at Uni!!!

Trip Castalan, Lord of The Hobbits, The Fourth Most Popular Folk/Parody Banana Thief In The Land said...

The books always used to come out around now and my mind keeps thinking that the new book from the new trilogy should be being released and then remembering that it was only released a few months ago. I have a pretty insatiable appetite for more though, so that's good.
