Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I'm sorry, I didn't know. 
Ensign Ro Laren: No, there's no reason you should. It's an old custom. Most Bajora these days accept the distortion of their names in order to assimilate. I do not.

+Daniel Quinn She's the reigning queen of Castle Chill in the Kingdom of Snows, an area located at the northernmost pole of Etheria. She appeared about as often as Mermista (sometimes in the same episode!) and Castaspella, but the Horde rarely attacked her kingdom because it's cold. She's forward, and smart, and powerful, and doesn't have to help the rebellion but she does cause she's awesome. She was my favourite - more so than Adora/She-Ra. She's a bit silly, but I dig that in a heroine!.  https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/111439120839068977917/albums/6093132306083298257/6093132308600738690?cfem=1&pid=6093132308600738690&oid=111439120839068977917

“Gilbert reached across the aisle, picked up the end of Anne's long red braid, held it out at arm's length and said in a piercing whisper:

"Carrots! Carrots!"

Then Anne looked at him with a vengeance!

She did more than look. She sprang to her feet, her bright fancies fallen into cureless ruin. She flashed one indignant glance at Gilbert from eyes whose angry sparkle was swiftly quenched in equally angry tears.

"You mean, hateful boy!" she exclaimed passionately. "How dare you!"

And then--thwack! Anne had brought her slate down on Gilbert's head and cracked it--slate not head--clear across.”

This is day 4 of my 12 day of December drawing challenge - 12 drawings of my favourite fictional heroines! Check back soon for day 5. #createmas #illustration

Perhaps this is the volunteering opportunity for which you've always been searching...  #gottacon   
 
Hello everyone. Please, have a read, I am making an announcement. Please share this announcement so that it can reach as many Vancouver Island-Lower Mainland people as possible. Thank you!

See, its the time of year Victoria's largest gaming convention starts recruiting volunteers, and by this I mean Gottacon 2015.

First and foremost, Gottacon happens February 27th to March 1st in 2015, and if any of the following entices you to volunteer keep in mind that only those days are the ones we are seeking volunteers for, please be available for one or some of those days.

The things we're offering you to help entice your interest are...
1. If you sign up and stay on with us, you get first choice of shifts if you return next year
2. Free entry to Gottacon if you volunteer at least 15 hours, and/or help recruit more people (this is approximately $50 value)
3. Written letters of recommendation if you put in your best volunteer effort, these letters look great on resumes.
4. Free food if you volunteer more than 4 hours
5. The possibility of sweet gaming swag and other rewards
6. A special dinner for volunteers with prizes after the convention is over
7. Opportunities to get involved and make connections in Victoria's expansive gaming community

So how does the recruitment thing work? If you get someone to volunteer with us and they mention you in the notes section that you recruited them we'll give you some free hours worked.

This means you might only have to volunteer twelve hours across three days and bring one friend along to volunteer as well to get a full three day pass. Or eight hours and two friends. Or six hours and three friends. And so forth...

We really need people and we really want to be a big part of the gaming community. We appreciate your time and hope to see you join our team this year!

Here's the link to our Volunteer page and the sign up form: http://www.gottacon.com/volunteers/

See you at the convention!
Do you want to be part of the team that helps make GottaCon a successful and exciting show? If so please complete the volunteer application form below. If you don't have any experience, no problem we still want to hear from you. A completed application is required for all volunteers. To get an idea of…

“There aren’t many funny bits in Mr Tolkien either,’ Matilda said.
‘Do you think that all children’s books ought to have funny bits in them?’ Miss Honey asked.
‘I do,’ Matilda said. ‘Children are not so serious as grown-ups and love to laugh.” 

This is Matilda http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matilda_(novel) - day 10 of my 12 day of December drawing challenge - 12 drawings of my favourite fictional heroines! Quentin Blake was the artist that inspired me to become an illustrator. I’ve been in love with his lines since I was 8. #createmas #illustration #roalddahl
