Bella, I just read Deep Kiss of Winter and at the end all the smokin' hot Wroths are sitting around the fire with their beloveds and they do talk about going back for the little girls. I did a search on my kindle and couldn't find the girls names. I don't think they were mentioned in Deep Kiss and I don't remember them from Kaderin and Sebastian's book either, but it's been awhile. That one I don't have on kindle so I can't search.

As far as names go maybe Katariina or Elisabet or Marika? I found those on an Estonian girls baby name list lol!

When I saw it appear on my iTunes I was like "WHAT??" then I saw the post and was like: "Aaaah!" but wtf, Nalini has one of the most beautiful voices ever. Plus, her accent! Oh God.

Same accent, yes. Same speech style, nope except for the constant HRT (high-rising terminal) going on which is a characteristic of NZ English. Wink

From wiki: "New Zealanders will often reply to a question with a statement spoken with a rising intonation at the end. This often has the effect of making their statement sound like another question. There is enough awareness of this that it is seen in exaggerated form in comedy parody of New Zealanders. This rising intonation can also be heard at the end of statements, which are not in response to a question but to which the speaker wishes to add emphasis. "

I think people from Niedersachsen in Germany do the same thing. XD

Short question: Any vlogger-recommendations? I'm in the mood for some more vlogs, since I've only subscribed to about 40 channels on Youtube and don't watch all of them regularely. (Like the channel about cupcakes.. If I watched it more than I already do my cupcake cravings would.. Just writing the word makes me hungry. God.)

Also, according to a vlogger, we are not a forum. We don't troll and hate on eachother, and that appears to be the most important thing when it comes to forums. Hrm.

Vlogger.... well, there is the Pointlessblog... it's really cool, I especially like the challenges they do in that channel... and there's Marcus ButlerTV... it's also good..... I know more Vlogger's channels but they're in portuguese, so I don't think you would want them Very Happy

OMG, theres some pretty telling answers to question in the chat transcript!

Q. Have any of Enrique's victims except Brenna survived?

NS. I will leave you to wonder.

I wonder if Sahara was one of Enriques victims then? That's assuming its who Kaleb found in ToN,
I kind of had my own theory on this but I don't think it will happen now:(

Q. Will we find out more about Vivek and if he will become a vamp?

NS. Yes we will.

Yay, I hope he doesn't though.

Q. In an ultimate fight between Kaleb and the Ghost, who would win?

NS. I can't answer that! (*laughs*)
Does this mean that they are one and teh same person? Maybe? Or would answering taht question just be giving too much away.

& yay Illium is going to get his own book just not yet Smile

She wont tell us who is in the next psy-changeling book which is out next June-maybe that means it's Kaleb and Sahara's book, that would be amazing, I was hoping it would be Alexei first though.

I actually did that, and am hoping for the best, but I don't think I'll get the money for a PC together, considering how, even though I order all the pieces seperately, I still need to pay about 1000 EUR or more to have a PC that a, does what I want it too, and b, will keep doing that for a while without me needing to upgrade every few months. ._.'

Unfortunately, my birthday is on January 7th, so most people are still way broke from Christmas and can't really give me that much, either. (This is the Entitlement-Generation attitude right here. Haha.)

No, but with all the health-issues going on right now, I don't really expect to get the money together, and neither do I expect anyone to give me endless sums of money. (Especially because I don't have many relatives anyway.)

On that note, any ideas as to what are good presents? I'm soo clueless.

Hey, everyone. How did the End of the World go in your part of the world? Here it was disappointing - no pretty lights in the sky, no meteor shower, no nothing. Sad

I liveblogged it for the people living in the past, and was following the liveblogs of people in the future (like Australia, New Zealand and the Phillipines.) - Interestingly enough, New Zealand had a livestream.. Wink

No, but I seriously LOVED all the liveblogging, and the songs. If you're on tumblr and haven't seen any of that, you missed out on stuff. ;D

Funny thing about this...the Myan's never took into account the leap year, so in actuality the end of the world was actually in Sep!! Laughing

Yeah, heard about that one, too, and laughed a lot. Then again, didn't someone say the people translating all that stuff did it wrong and it't in about 100 years or more? It's really annoying that people assume so many things about the whole end of the world thing. Maybe they meant a slow downfall*. Wink

*Which, admittedly, would be as amazing a prophecy as me telling all of you that one day, you'll die.

I had seen that somewhere, that they found the other eight hundred thousand years of the Mayan Calender and we're good to go. I loved the late night comedy sketches about it though and I'm going to paraphrase Leno.

Some people were really into this, they were expecting the world to end on Friday. I mean, how do you cheer those people up? Do you go to them and say, "hey! It's not the end of the world!" Ooh...
