Samhain and such.

Life goes on, and for the sake of verisimilitude and realism, you cannot possibly give the impression of an ending: you must let something hang. A cheap interpretation of that would be to say that you must always leave a chance for a sequel. People die, love dies, but life does not die, and so long as people live, stories must have life at the end.


This quote really doesn't have anything to do with this journal entry; I just really like it. It makes me think of all the times somebody has told me that they do not like a book because it has a hanging ending, and perhaps not everything is entirely wrapped up (Not cliff-hangers, those are different). Why? That is my favourite kind of ending!

This is part a kind-of response to a friend's journal, and just something I wanted to talk about.

So. Halloween. Yep. For most of my childhood (age three until now?) my mother wouldn't let me celebrate Halloween, because of its Pagan roots (Samhain!). Finally, though, this year I talked with her, and she decided that I am old enough to make my own decisions. So what does that mean? It means that finally, I am allowed to go trick-or-treating!!!
This is extremely exciting to me. ;)
Okay, so my mom signed me up for this Halloween-ministry they're having at my church for the local kids, and I have to help out, so I can't actually go trick-or-treating. I still made a costume, though:
Little Red Riding Hood!

It's gonna be fun. :3
I plan on wearing it to 1) School (but only the cape, I'll leave the dress and knee-highs at home and just wear jeans and a t-shirt.) and 2) church (people dress up there, but I have a feeling that I will be the only person helping out wearing a costume XD).

Slight subject-change!

Yesterday I was at a local bookstore, just browsing through the used books (they had a lot of good cheap ones!), when I looked up and saw.... Death. On stilts.

Then when I was browsing through the manga, I noticed a kitty and Near also looking at the manga.
That was freaking awesome! XDD
I've never (sadly, for someone who wants to do this as well) seen a cosplayer in person before. I was going to say something to her, confirm that she was Near, but we never made eye contact. v.v
It really excited me.
My point of this story? A bookstore that has a Halloween party with cosplayers attending it has to be the best bookstore ever!
I'll add a link to the video of this party once the store has it on their FB page... I did not attend, because I did not know of this party.)

((I suck. Out of laziness, I just copied this entry from my deviantART journal... Not to fill up space, of course, but because I know a lot of people who read this blog don't also watch me on deviantART, and therefore do not see my journal entries (as rare as they are). I was originally planning on writing this out in a more interesting way, but like I said.... I suck.))
