Crustaceans, Swimming Mounts, and a Spritely Pet!

Hello again! I've got another membership, and I'm proud to announce that I'm now in CELESTIA! Yep, that's right. I might be a teensy bit underleveled, (lvl 48) but it's a fun challenge. Those crustaceans broke my perfect record of not dying in battle since tomb of the beguiler. And I've got a bone to pick with those Marleybonians. xD How come they can't just MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS?! Seriously, our first taste
of them was way back in Wizard City, with Arthur Wethersfield. Then they were in Krokotopia, those pesky
archaeologists who just happened to awaken the tuts. Of course, we don't care about them in Marleybone. We then get a nice break from them in Mooshu and Dragonspyre, but then Celestia rolls around and...they're BACK! O_O Can't they just leave us alone? I'm plain sick of dogs by now, and I sure hope that they'll have a cat world at some point. On a more positive note, I love my swimming mount.
 Oh yeah, and that brain coral thingy. xD Not to mention I got a satyr pet from my level 48 spell quest. I went straight to look it up on the W101 Central Wiki, and I saw...*cues drumroll*...Spritely in the talent pool! So I started training it like nuts, in strength and agility. When it became teen, it got Pip O'Plenty (1% pip chance). So I kept training it - and when it leveled to adult I saw SPRITELY! Yes! Problem with spritely though - it uses up your guiding lights, sometimes on a sprite that you don't even need. So I'm not using guiding light as often. Other than that it's great! And it takes the pressure off, so I can heal others in the group instead of myself. Those spritely pets sure do go crazy sometimes. But on a different note, it's time for...

Outfit of the Week!
This outfit is pretty cool. It looks Dragonspyre-ish. If I remember correctly, the wearer of this outfit was a Balance wizard. Makes sense, since it's orange. I call this the orange knight outfit. However, the boots don't match. (Hey, not all my unique outfits will have parts that don't match! It's coincidence.) I'm not sure, but I think those boots are from the Wyvern's Hoard. I especially like the robe. I don't have much to say right now except for one important-ish announcement that has nothing to do with this outfit!

Fanfiction: Part one finished!

Okay, I have an announcement to make. The Secret Gate, Part One, is FINISHED! I've already started part two as well, and I'm having fun with it. I cracked my perfect semi-brilliant pun. So...head on over to the fanfiction page and see what I've got! I've submitted it to the website and it hasn't been posted so far. I really hope it will soon. But if not...well then, this is my blog, and nobody will stop me from putting my story on it! xD My old poll expired, and it seems that the readers think I could use more posts! I'll try to post more often. I created a new poll and the topic is worlds! I voted Wysteria because it's my birthday world! That's right, it was released on my birthday! I stepped inside Wysteria, and I loved it. It was like the most epic birthday present ever, just I received it a little bit early... So on to the typical

Outfit of the Week!

You might think I'm a huge fan of winged outfits - but I'm not. It's just like all the particularly pretty matching outfits seem to have wings on them. This one is all glittery and gold, and I like it. It's sad, I can't seem to get my outfits to glitter. *pouts* *clears throat* So anyway, I don't have much more to say - just hang around in the commons in the Balestrom realm in your unique outfit, and you just might get featured. But no promises!

......epic forgetting-to-blog fail xD

Sorry, people. I got SO wrapped up in playing, I deserted my blog. But I'm back now! Oh yeah, and I'm level 46 now, in Dragonspyre and about to do the Labyrinth for the second time. >.< Honestly, the Labyrinth must be the least fun dungeon in the history of the spiral. Meanwhile, since I'm in a ranting-about-dungeons mood, I put together a list of top three most fun dungeons ever...and then a list of top three least fun.

Top Three Most Fun Dungeons Ever - Spoiler Warning!
1. Hall of Time - I just think it's cool how at the beginning of the Grand Chasm, they say that somebody was repairing the bridges to the vault but they don't know why. And then you go back in time repairing all the bridges.
2. Frostholm - This dungeon...is epic. xD Basically, all you have to do is sneak into the enemy Red Claw camp and make mischief. It's just really funny to play through.
3. Throne Room of Fire - Five words: I. JUST. LOVE. THE. MAP! That's the only reason why this is on the list. Seriously, I could go in there and stare at the 3D, perfect map of Krokotopia for half an hour; but of course I'm not going to.

Top Three Least Fun Dungeons Ever - More Spoilers!
1. The Labyrinth - I hate this dungeon. It's so tedious, and you have to do it like three times. First for the main quest, then for the obsidian chest, and then for the level 48 school quests! Actually, I'm not sure if every school has to do it, but a lot of them do. And I strongly dislike wandering street bosses.
2. Katzenstein's Lab - The smokestacks. >.< I could rant about the smokestacks all day, but I think there are other things you'd rather hear me rant about. Or maybe not....
3. Sunken City - It's really hard when you get the quest for it, and the sidewalks don't work very well. However, when I went back to replay it for the level 38 life quest, it wasn't so bad.
Note: I have not done Kensington Park, but I've heard bad things about it. If I had done it, it would probably be on this list.

Outfit of the Week!

I was having trouble finding a wacky outfit, so I had a friend do it for me. As always, I won't do names in outfit of the week, but this one is pretty simple. It would go really nice together - except for the colors. The colors are what make it wacky! I will call it the chaotic color scheme outfit. There's not much more to say...so I have some important updates! Read on to learn more.

Fanfiction update!
Name change: the name of my fanfiction has been changed from The Bronze Key to The Secret Gate. I think the first part will be out next week - but no promises! If it's out next week, the week after that I will add a little surprise; maybe some exclusive content about one of the characters. And I will be submitting it to the official Wizard101 website as well!

Interview update!
There's an interview on the interviews page - with my best ever friend and questing companion, Elizabeth GoldenThistle! Head on over to check it out.

So...this probably sets the record for the longest post ever on my blog. And there's only three days left of my membership. :( But anyway, see you in the spiral! And there will be a code next week!
