In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Connect the Dots.”


I do not know why it is called “Golden” since it appears to have been written by men with mouths of iron and hearts of lead.

This is Diarmaid MacCulloch quoting ‘De causis corruptarum artium’. That’s what happens when you ask someone to pick up the nearest books and they’re half way through researching the 1549 South West Rebellion in England. I suppose it’s rather pretty but I’ve no idea how I’m supposed to use it to write a post. I’ll try again, Neil Gaiman’s Anansi Boys:

Trust me to pick up a book where page eighty-two is completely blank. Well, one last attempt. Derek Landy, Skulduggery Pleasant The Faceless Ones:

She wasn’t, in Valkyrie’s opinion, all there.”

Ah, Valkyrie Cain, one of my all time favourite characters by one of my all time favourite authors talking about another character that I simply adore. Clarabelle. Clarabelle is the definition of “away with the fairies”, but she is one of the sweetest, most accepting people I have ever had the pleasure of reading. There is no judgement in her, zombie, vampire, human or remnant, she will accept you as you come. No matter how murderous or terrifying. We could all perhaps learn something from Carabelle.

Now if you’ll excuse me I have a history essay to prepare for.
