The What If? . . . Fantasy Tag!

Hey'a, everyone! So, I didn't end up doing as much stuff with February is Fantasy Month as I hoped— though, all my posts so far have been fantasy-RELATED, so I've got that going for me). Today, however, I'm actually officially participating with this super-fun fantasy tag that Jenelle created! Admittedly, I wasn't officially tagged with it . . . but one of my friends said she was going to tag me, so that counts, right? Riiiight. Anyway, let's get started!

1. Your car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. The cast of the most recent fantasy book you read comes to your assistance… who are they? Will they be helpful?
The last fantasy book I read was Court of Fives (pretty cool world, exciting storyline, but cliche main character and love interest, FYI), so coming to my rescue are Jessamy, Kalliarkos, and . . . I guess we're going to say Thynos, Inarsis, Coriander, Jessamy's family, and one other spoiler-y character, if we go with the majority of the good guys. Unfortunately, none of this group knows how to fix a car, and neither athletic prowess nor political savviness is going to be much use here. I guess they can keep me company and protect me from sketchy people while I wait for more useful help? Good thing I've got a cell phone . . .

2. You go to bed one evening and wake up in the lair of the villain of the last fairy tale you read, where are you and how do you plan to get out?
Are we counting fairy tale retellings in this? I'm going to assume that we're counting fairy tale retellings here, in which case the last fairy tale I read was Cinderella, specifically Allison Tebo's The Reluctant Godfather. So . . . I'm in de Ghent Hall, or more generally, the home of Cinderella's stepmother? That's not too bad. Worst-case scenario, I'm either locked in an attic or closet or something or being forced to do housework. In the latter case, it shouldn't be too hard to just slip out; in the former, well, I'd probably chill and/or panic for a bit, figure out if anyone knew I was there and why I was there, and then decide on a plan.

3. You are transported into a fantasy realm and given a mythical creature as a companion and best friend… which mythical creature do you get?
A dragon! Preferably one of the dragons from my Berstru Tales, which are as intelligent as humans (if not more so), a managable-but-still-intimidating-to-foes size (unless it's a miniature dragon, in which case the size is definitely not intimidating, but the dragon as a whole still might be), and able to bond to people. As a bonus, a human bonded to a dragon gets some pretty useful powers, which I'll need if I'm going to survive a fantasy adventure.

4. In a strange series of coincidences, you end up needing to take the place of your favorite fantasy hero or heroine. Who are you? 
So, my favorite fantasy heroine shifts around a bit depending on which books I've read most recently, which ones I'm itching to read, my mood, and a few other factors. At the moment, I'd say that I'm probably taking the place of either Shallan Davar from The Stormlight Archive or Marasi Colms from Mistborn. Admittedly, neither of them live in the safest storyworlds . . . and Shallan's life is kinda sorta a complete mess . . . but I'd manage. I think. 

5. To go along with question #4, now that you are that character, is there anything you would do differently than that character, now that you are running the show?
For Shallan— yes, enough that it's not going to be convenient to list them all here, but that's mostly because I'm of a rather different personality than she is and so I wouldn't react to events or deal with personal struggles in the same way— storms, half of her personal struggles, I don't know if I'd have at all, given the differences between my personality and hers. How that would affect events in the books, I'm not sure.

For Marasi-— no. Marasi's fabulous and sensible and makes excellent choices. I probably wouldn't manage half as well as she does, honestly. Hopefully I wouldn't cause anyone to die by accident. Though . . . I guess I might be slightly more suspicious of a particular character who shall remain unnamed because spoilers.

6. If you were yourself in a fantasy novel, what role do you think you would play in the story?
I'd rather like to be the heroine . . . but honestly, I'd probably be a side character, one who serves as impulse control to the protagonist and has random useful knowledge of lore, legends, magical creatures, and so on and generally keeps everyone from making stupid decisions and getting killed . . . at least when they listen to me. I could get behind that role.

7. One morning, as you are going about your daily business, you pick up an everyday item and a voice booms in your head with prophetic words about your future. What object is it, and what is your prophecy?

The object I pick up is one of my pencils, and the prophecy which I receive is as follows:

Besiegéd! Besiegéd thou shalt be
With more ideas than thou can ev'r use!
Yet none shall come when most thou desires,
But only as int'ruption of another story's muse.

8. You are transported into a magical realm and turned into a mythical beast… what beast/fantasy creature do you want to be?
My first thought was dragon . . . but, as Jenelle pointed out, being a dragon means that people are potentially hunting you, plus dragons aren't really built for either reading or writing things. So, let's go with . . . hmm. The faeries of Rudiobus are technically fantasy creatures, aren't they? Can I be one of them? I'd be super down with that. I'd be immortal, able to turn into some kind of woodland creature (I'd prefer an otter, if that's possible), and in prime position to explore the Wood and meet a lot of favorite characters.

9. If you could read your way into any fantasy realm, but the catch is that you can never leave, would you? Which realm would you choose?
I think my last answer pretty much answers that question: if I could read my way into the world of Goldstone Wood, I'd do so in a heartbeat. I'd find my way straight to Dame Imraldera's Haven and convince her that she definitely needs me as an assistant. From there, I'd learn how to navigate the Wood and the Paths and go exploring throughout the Near and Far Worlds.

10.  As you are going about your normal day, you discover that you have a magical power. What is it?         
The power is control over time- speeding it up, slowing it down, and stopping it altogether around me. I discover this power in one of two ways. 

Possibility one: I'm in the middle of doing schoolwork and stressed because I have so much to do and so little time to do it in. I go on the internet to look something up, but . . . that's odd. Why is the internet loading so slowly? I look at the on my dresser and realize that I've been working for an hour, but only fifteen minutes have passed . . . what do you know, I've been speeding up time in a bubble around myself, giving myself more time in which to work! Bolstered by this knowledge, I figure out how to temporarily make time normal again so I can look up what I need to know, then get back to work and finish with plenty of time to read a good book and catch up on Fairy Tail.

Possibility two: it's Sunday night and my hallmates and I are going to dinner. The dining hall is packed full of people; the lines are back all the way to the grill; there are hardly any seats left. For an introvert, it's utterly overwhelming, and I wish that everything would stop- and then it does. Everyone and everything around me and my friends just freezes. We're all quite confused, but decide to take advantage of the moment to find a place to sit. After we've done that, time goes back to normal. Later, I do some experimenting and figure out that I'm the one who caused it. 

I'm not going to tag anyone, since I wasn't officially tagged myself . . . but if you're reading this, feel free to steal the tag to answer on your own blog! I'd love to see how you respond!
Thanks for reading!

Beautiful Persons: Valentine's Day 2018

Ok, so technically, this isn't a real Beautiful People post because Cait isn't doing Beautiful People anymore. I'm not sure when or why she stopped, but yeah. However, for the last two years, I've used the Couples Edition question set for a Valentine's Day–themed post, and I didn't want to give up the tradition. So, I've pulled questions from all three Couples sets to create my own Beautiful Persons interview! Today, I'll be interviewing Xiang and Baili from Blood in the Snow, mostly because getting into their headspace is currently really easy. As things turned out, writing their responses was also super fun because I've never had the chance before to write about them when they aren't stressed and on guard and so on. Anyway, hope you enjoy!

To start off, how long have you been a couple?
Xiang: I believe that depends how you define a couple. We were betrothed when we were fairly young, but we did not meet and fall in love until much later.

Of course. So, how and why did you meet?
Xiang: If I recall correctly, we met on the riverbank by the goose pastures because one of Baili's companions pushed her into the river and I happened to be walking nearby.
Baili: *blushes* I don't believe it was quite like that . . .
Xiang: But that did happen, did it not?
Baili: Well, yes, but we'd known of each other before then. We were betrothed, after all, even if that was our first real meeting.

Well then. What were your first impressions of each other?
Xiang: That, even soaked, in rough robes, and very flustered, she was every bit as beautiful as she was said to be.
Baili: Xiang!
Xiang: *innocently* The Zuòjia asked, Baili-qīn. Would you have me answer untruthfully?
Baili: No— I just— *gives up* I thought he was very kind to help someone who surely seemed to be the lowest of his servants.

Indeed. And now that you've had much more time to interact, how committed/loyal are you to each other?
Xiang: Very. I would have gladly searched to the furthest reaches of the realm to find my lovely bride.
Baili: As he said, but . . . Our match was political first, even though it turned to love. To be unfaithful would have consequences reaching far beyond just our personal relationship. So, our love is in many ways how we remain committed, not merely why.

I see. So, how would you prove your love for each other? Would you die for each other?
Baili: Yes. Absolutely, yes.
Xiang: Baili speaks for both of us. As for how we prove our love, spending time with one another is part of it. In our culture, emperors who barely see their wives are very common. But we're both committed to sharing our lives as much as possible.
Baili: *nods* For us, it truly is the smallest things that mean the most.

They often are. So, is there something you emphatically disagree on?
Xiang: Thus far, we have had few major disagreements, merely instances in which one of us felt strongly about a matter and the other was indifferent. We both pray that will continue.

So do we all. Now, fun question! List 5 “food quirks” you know about each other.
Baili: Xiang has a special fondness for exotic fruit, more than anyone else I have met.
Xiang: I believe Baili enjoys it nearly as much as I do. However, she no longer eats apples, ever since a certain turn of events that I believe I am forbidden from going into detail on.

Oh, yes, you definitely are. But go on.
Baili: Xiang doesn't seem to care for fish or seafood, which I find odd.
Xiang: No doubt, Baili-qīn, I would like it as much as you do if I had grown up as near the sea as you did. I do not think there is anyone in my father's court who enjoys such dishes as much as you do.
Baili: They do remind me of home, yes.
Xiang: Is that four quirks or just three that we're up to?
Baili: Four, I believe. Can you think of any other?
Xiang: No, unfortunately. Zuòjia, perhaps we can move on?

Of course. Next question: Are you ever embarrassed of each other?
Baili: *blushes* I do not think I should answer this question.
Xiang: *pulls Baili closer to his side and smiles down at her* I fear that Baili-qīn is easily flustered whenever I happen to display affection with people around, no matter how subtle I am.
Baili: I can't help it! It doesn't just happen with— with what he said. He says things, quietly usually, but always just loud enough that I'm afraid someone else will hear.
Xiang: You enjoy my little words of affection, though!
Baili: Of course, but I would rather others not hear them.

All right, enough! What’s one thing you know about each other that no one else does?
Baili: I know that Xiang is not always as formal and serious as he shows himself to the court.
Xiang: Of course I am not. As for myself, I know that Baili is far stronger than most realize. She always makes much of the help given her by others, yet she has endured much which would have caused others to despair.

Last question! What would you consider an ideal date?
Baili: A private meal, just the two of us. A picnic by the river's edge would be nice.
Xiang: And after that, a walk beneath the stars.
Baili: In short, we would prefer something simple, quiet, and private.

That sounds lovely. And now the interview's over! Say goodbye to the readers!  
 Baili & Xiang: *both bow*
Xiang: Farewell, honored readers. May your Valentine's Day be blessed, no matter who you spend it with. *smiles at Baili* I know mine will be.
Baili: *blushes* Yes, farewell, and thank you very much for reading!

Thank you indeed! And as Xiang said, happy Valentine's Day! Do you have any plans? Do you think Xiang and Baili are a couple you'd enjoy reading about? Please tell me in the comments!

Worth of a King Cover Reveal!

Hey'a, everyone! So, most of you probably know this, but Kendra E. Ardnek is currently working on a new novel in the Rizkaland multiverse, The Worth of a King. I'm an alpha reader for Worth, and let me tell you, it's pretty awesome— on the same level as Lady Dragon, Tela Du, honestly. And today, we're revealing the cover!

Release Date: August 27 

About the Book:

Princess Obsidia’s father was killed the night she was born. Since there was no male heir, the crown went to the man who killed him, by Dialcian law. This never bothered her, growing up, and when it comes time for Obsidia to choose her husband, she chooses Prince Delaney, the son of that man, with little hesitation. Only then does her life start crumbling around her.

Adrian expected to live a normal life, taking his father’s place at the print shop when his father retired. But, on his eighteenth birthday, when the princess’ engagement is announced, his world is ripped out from under him when he learns that his life was a ruse, and he is the twin brother to the princess – and expected to take back his father’s throne.

Delaney knows that his country is hovering on the brink of war – and that his father may harbor murderous intentions towards his intended bride due to her Zovordian blood. He wants nothing more than to protect Obsidia and his people, but as merely prince, he has little power against his father.

The ancient war between the Dragons and the Immortal King and Queen is nearing its climax, and the three are already caught in it.

Read the opening chapter || Add it on Goodreads

About the Author:

Kendra E. Ardnek loves fairytales and twisting them in new and exciting ways. She's been or acting them on her dozen plus cousins and siblings for years. "Finish your story, Kendra," is frequently heard at family gatherings. Her sole life goal has always been to grow up and be an author of fantasy and children's tales that glorify God and His Word.

Find her online at: Website || Blog || Goodreads || Facebook || Twitter || Amazon  

Isn't the cover gorgeous? Definitely my new favorite of Kendra's covers. I love the colors and the crown, and the dragon eating its tail seems very fitting for reasons that y'all will figure out once you read the book . . . hopefully, anyway. It has a very different feel than most of Kendra's other covers, but then again, the book is pretty different as well (even if it does feature some familiar characters). 

In addition to the cover, Kendra has provided some bonus goodies for y'all to enjoy: a snippet, a mini-interview, and one of her inspiration Pins!


“Well, that’s one village down – just eleven more to go,” Nadilynn declared once they were well on the road again the next morning. “Del, I don’t know that Sidi will be able to survive it. Whatever shall be done?”

“I think that, if you’ll just leave her alone between now and this evening, she might actually make it,” Delaney suggested.

Nadilynn pursed her lips. “She did well and enough during the speech,” she mused. “It’s just after we talked to the printer about his sons that she went all quiet.”

“Obsidia is generally quiet,” Delaney pointed out, folding his arms over his chest. “Maybe you’ve finally been quiet enough to notice.”


This interview features the voices of Kendra and three of her main characters! First up, Kendra! What was your favorite part of writing Worth? 

Kendra: The relationships. Adrian and Obsidia as they discovered each other. Delaney and Obsidia's sweet romance. Adrian and his adopted brother, Jerolin. Adrian and Christa, the girl he only realized he loved after he found out that he's a prince and will likely have to marry some princess. Adrian and Delaney, now that was an interesting pair. Obsidia and Christa. Obsidia and Nadilynn. Delaney and Nadilynn. All the relationships. 

Also, I got to write a world that took place in an inverted sphere. That was awesome.

And for the characters: Pick one of your fellow main or major characters who’s especially important to you and describe them in one sentence.

Adrian: Obsidia, the twin sister I just found out that I have. The reason that I'm willing to face up to my true ancestry and do this whole prince thing. She's ... quiet. And confusing.

Delaney: Obsidia, who I'm pledged to marry. I'll do anything to keep her safe. Like Adrian said, she's quiet, but she's smart and intelligent and I value her knowledge of history immensely.

Obsidia: *glances between the two* I suppose I'm now expected to choose between my twin brother and the man I plan to marry? Well, I refuse. The person most important to me is Nadilynn, Delaney's younger sister. She's an incorrigible ray of sunshine who's going to land herself in a heap of trouble one of these days.

And now we see why Obsidia is, in many ways, the main-main character of the novel . . . but let's move on, shall we?


And that's it! Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to check out the rest of the cover reveal stops for more exclusive content!
Have a great day!

January 2018 Doings!

Hallo, all! So, January is a weird month. The first half, the holidays are over and you're on break and everything's chill. You've got plenty of time to read or write or whatever you want to do, and you're only really limited by the hours in the day. And then halfway through the month, you head back to school, and suddenly it's all due dates and reading assignments and your professors start off the first non-syllabus class with "so your first project is . . ." and it's honestly a little overwhelming. And it doesn't stop. It doesn't even slow down. You just get used to having too many things to do and accept that it's going to be that way for the next several months. And, on that note, let's look back and see what my too-much-to-do looked like!


  • If you remember, I said at the end of December that my first writing goal of 2018 would be 15 hours of writing and editing over the whole month, or about half an hour per day. I didn't quite make 15- I ended up with 14.86 hours- but I think I still did pretty well. Most of that was spent in editing, but I did have a few really awesome writing days when I got in a solid hour or two.
  • That said, after spending all of November and December working on Blood in the Snow edits and all of 2017 in general working on either writing or editing 30K+ stories, my inspiration kind of revolted against long projects. So, a lot of my actual words this month were tied up in four short stories.
  • Two of those short stories are for the Indie e-Con writing contest, which is kind of cool in that it gives you a prompt that seems pretty characteristic of a particular genre and then tells you to not write in that genre. The other two short stories are just random bits of narrative that I came up with. One, "I'll Take the Lashes," I posted here earlier this month. The other is urban fantasy involving dragons and was going to be posted here, but then it informed me that it has a sequel, or might possibly be the start of a novella, and now I don't know what to do with it. So, yeah. That's a problem.
  • I did manage some editing on Fight Song, though! Updates will hopefully resume by the end of February, assuming I don't get hijacked by short stories. I'm currently in the middle of what is simultaneously one of my favorite and least favorite scenes in the novella- favorite because I like what happens as a result, least favorite because it contains a more physical fight scene and is therefore very hard to write.
  • And I finally downloaded Grammarly, after being told by multiple people that the ads actually aren't lying. I'm . . . not sure how I feel about it. For the web, it's great. For Word . . . Well, it's better than the default spellcheck, which was starting to mark errors that weren't there, but it's not as context-aware as I'd been led to believe.


  • So, the picture is a little deceptive, because it says I read ten books, but one of those was a short story (A Blazing Seal of Approval; it's fun and on C.B.'s blog; go read it), and another I actually only read about 300 pages (out of 1200-some) of in January and the rest in December. For those who can't guess- yes, I'm talking about Oathbringer, which is amazing and awesome and the best in the series and ADSLKJFLKSDJF. There's intrigue and politics and epic battles and Kaladin and Important Revelations and Shallan and Dalinar having crises and humor and Lift and new places and an absolutely magnificent climax and more info on surges and Wit and screaming spren. Also, Taravangian is a dragon-kissed snake and I want to scream in his lying face.
  • Anyway. Obviously, nothing else I read this month could top the magnificence of a new Stormlight Archive novel, but there were some other pretty fun reads. The rewritten My Kingdom for a Quest is good, though I almost think I like the new Sew better. Exiles wasn't my favorite in the series, but it did show us around more of Ilyon and put more spotlight on Daniel, both of which I enjoyed. I also finally got around to Magician's Rivalry, which Deborah O'Carroll has been recommending to me for absolute ages, and I quite enjoyed it. The Prisoner of Azkaban was also good, but it suffered from the fact that I've seen three million and fifty-one Mauraders headcanons on Pinterest and therefore know exactly who Sirius Black is and what he did and did not do and yeah. Also, Remus is kind of a wonderful person and needs a hug.
  • As you might notice, I did start rereading Tolkien, but only finished The Hobbit this month. Then Fellowship of the Ring got interrupted by my newspaper-review book for the month, An Enchantment of Ravens, which I just finished yesterday and am a little in love with. It's an excellent story on its own, with a sensible artist heroine and a dramatic faerie prince (as if there were any other kinds) and intrigue and excitement and snark. However, it also critiques a trend I'm growing increasingly tired of and frustrated with: recent literature's obsession with fair folk and other magical, immortal beings. Now, I will readily admit that I enjoy a good portrayal of the darker side of faerie courts as much as anyone, and faerie princes tend to be snarky-but-noble, which is just plain fun. However, I do think that a lot of literature lately has taken those things to an extreme, and An Enchantment of Ravens nicely shows the folly of such obsession, with a heroine who succeeds not by finding some hidden magical power within herself but by her own humanness.
  • And, yes, as you've noticed, I didn't really manage a classic for every three new books . . . hopefully February will go better.


  • I started off the year right by watching the Lord of the Rings extended editions with my sister! Other than FotR in September, I haven't watched the trilogy in a couple years, so revisiting it was definitely awesome. And the fact that my sister was watching for the first time made it extra special. The Lord of the Rings trilogy remains my absolute favorite movie ever (yes, I qualify it as a single unit), and it just gets better the more times I watch it.
  • Otherwise, my watching has just been more of the usual: lots of Fairy Tail! The S-Class Trials arc was pretty awesome, even if it did include an angsty emo villain. Actually, come to think of it, there were multiple angsty, emo, or just weirder-than-usual villains . . . but there was also Gildarts and Loke and Freed, who haven't been getting enough screen time lately, so I'm not going to complain. The current arc, Key of the Starry Sky, is . . . less impressive. Still not bad, though, so far.


  • So, like I said, the month started out pretty chill: writing, reading, watching LotR, and so on. My dad and I attended a portrait photography workshop, which was . . . well, not exactly what I expected, but still cool.
  • And then I headed back to college and CUE THE PANIC THE CLASS SYLLABUS SAYS WHAT?????
  • So, yeah, long story short: I decided to pick up a minor in graphic design, having been assured that my total lack of drawing skills wouldn't matter except in maybe one class. Then I looked at the syllabus for what should've been one of my two easiest classes this semester, and I HAVE TO KEEP A SKETCHBOOK what I did not sign up for this!
  • Thankfully, the professor is very understanding and assured me that I don't have to be a good artist to do well in the class; I just have to improve. And, since there's nowhere to go but up from my current skill level, I should be fine. It's still magnificently stressful, though. So is Professional Editing, which is absolutely, without a doubt, my least favorite class of the semester. The material isn't hard to understand, but it's arguably the least creative of anything I've learned so far in my major, and it requires a particular type of patience which does not come naturally to me. It's not that I hate editing as a whole; I'm happy to go over a friend's paper or story or whatever else and help them make it better. I actually enjoy that, but my enjoyment comes more from my investment in the person (or sometimes the story) than from the actual editing. Do I get some satisfaction from correcting a mistake or finding a way to make an idea more clear? Sure I do. But that satisfaction is compounded according to how much I care about the piece I'm editing or the person I'm editing for, and so the class, in which I'm pretty detached from everything I edit, causes more stress than pleasure.
  • On the upside, the two classes I thought would be most stressful- Documentation Design and Adobe Illustrator- have actually been super fun and chill, so that's nice. Apparently "documentation" includes a lot more than I thought it did? So I just finished making a cookbook with recipes that can be made in the college dining hall and I'm super happy with how it turned out. And now I'm working on a quick reference guide to go along with the cookbook. And I can make things in Illustrator now,  and they look actually nice and it's so satisfying even though half of what I'm doing is really just tracing or shape manipulation and yeah. I love it.
  • In non-class-related news: I got to do a lot of board- and card-gaming this month, which was super fun! One of my hallmates owns Exploding Kittens, and my roomie got Codenames for Christmas, so I've been playing a good bit of those. Plus, the roomie introduced me to Fluxx, which is a super-fun card game with ever-changing rules and objectives, and I love it. Hopefully I can find an excuse to play it again soon . . .
  • I'm still doing martial arts, of course, despite a few hiccups with the instructor not making it to class. Thankfully, another student (who also teaches martial arts when he's at home) filled in and showed everyone some jiujitsu-based self defense. While I really like the usual instructor, and I look forward to his return next week, I enjoyed getting some lessons from another perspective. The substitute instructor basically built on what we'd already learned in the class, showing us what to do if some of the self-defense we'd learned didn't work and how to actually use some of the other moves we'd gone over, along with answering random questions about how to defend ourselves in this, that, or the other situation. And the way he had us practice felt sort of like sparring, which was exciting . . . and also exhausting, but you know. It was still good.
  • In addition to continuing martial arts, I decided on a whim to finally give swing dancing a try as a sort of reward for finishing my first big project of the semester. Friends have been telling me since last school year how fun it is, but I just never made time to try it. Now that I have, I really enjoyed it- but I'm also glad that I waited, so I could have someone show me the basics one-on-one, instead of trying to catch up with the rest of the group. I'm definitely going to continue to go to the class the rest of the semester, as long as time allows.

February Plans!

  • Aaaaand now it's February, which is arguably the dullest month of the year. For being two or three days shorter than all the other months, it always feels astonishingly long. Classes will keep me plenty busy, though; I have reasonably large projects coming up in almost all of them.
  • Outside of schoolwork, I intend to keep my half-hour-a-day goal but modify it slightly. I'm now aiming for a half hour a day, five days a week. That'll give me a bit more buffer for when schoolwork (and, occasionally, events) keep me busy but still ensure that I'm keeping a regular schedule.
  • I also hope to join in on the February is Fantasy Month festivities hosted by Jenelle Schmidt. Last year, I didn't do much, but hopefully that'll change this year. We'll see. Jenelle is hosting word wars on Facebook, so I'll definitely try to take part in those, if nothing else.
  • That's . . . pretty much it, honestly. Like I said, February isn't all that exciting a month.
How was your January? Any plans for February? Are you excited for February is Fantasy Month? Please tell me in the comments!
Thanks for reading!
