Journal History

I'm a day late.  I'm a horrible mother.

Yesterday was Will's birthday!  It's been three years since Will walked into my head and demanded a job.  Then I posted this thing and we all lived happily ever after.  I might have slowed down thanks to other commitments, but it's still going! :dummy:  A very slightly belated happy birthday to you, Will.

Don't forget, I'm holding a contest! 

Rules and entries here:
'No humans here' contestEDIT:  I added extra details on the rules that I meant to include but forgot >.<  This is why you shouldn't write important stuff late at night.
Entries so far:

Once again I will be refraining from commenting until the contest is over.  It's going to be really hard because that's a whole two months. :T  But fairness.
-----
So announcing this contest is a bit of a bugger because I have no idea what to give as prizes. 
But I thought I would announce it anyway with minimal prizes for now.  I may add more later.
To celebrate the first anniversary of Miss Prince being published, I am holding one of them thar 'draw my OC' contests. 
You can download a sample of Miss Prince here - http://tannbourne.com
If you wanna.  You don't have to.
For anyone who is not my watcher, the webcomic these OCs belong to can be found here:

First of all.. I just need to vent a little.  This week sucks.  It sucks so much.  But I will get through it one day at a time.  Just both my jobs are full on this week because it's half term and urrrgh the club isn't gonna stay clean for like more than 10 friggin minutes at a time why.

And then it will be Friday.

And on Friday I will be going to Manchester to set up for Manchester Comic Con.  On that day, I'll have the opportunity to get plushie materials.  I've started on a Victor one, and I thought I had decent materials for it, but some of them aren't quite right, so I need more. 

BUT.

This means I also have the chance to get materials for other plushies. 

SO.

Who do you most want to see as a plushie?  I'd do it as a poll, but I'd rather ask people to comment so they can make more than one choice and I can see who cares enough to actually comment and tell me so I know if the effort and money I will be putting into this will be worth it.  Also you could tell me which particular costume you'd like them in.

At least one of the plushies will be a prize for the contest (provided nothing goes horribly wrong, and it might) and then I have always thought it would be really cool to have some to sell on my stall.  Or from DA.  Whatever I have time/money to do.

But I'd rather see who people want first.

So y'know.  Comment away.

Also thank you so much for all your questions on the ask journal, I may not be able to do very many, but I appreciate your effort.

Thanks for reading,

Alicia

She certainly didn't trust anything that sounded made-up or used words like 'dynamic'. Going round trusting words like 'dynamic' could get you into trouble.

My debut novel, Eggs, Butter, Sugar and Disaster came out on the 22nd October 2011. My next book, Miss Prince, was published on 14th May 2014! Vampires Don't Belong in Fairytales, my webcomic, runs alongside it. I am working on a pair of sequels to it.

I'm a comic fantasy YA author, anime fan, artist, reader and gamer.

Right now I'm working part time, studying games design from home and working on more book stuff.

 I spelled this 'genie' for the sake of the head canon meme, but I am now going to resume using the spelling djinni and you are going to have to deal with it.  Once again, this info relates specifically to the djinni in the Miss Prince/VDBiF universe.

 'Djinni' is an umbrella term that also covers species such as succubi/incubi.  For the purposes of the challenge, I will try to stick to actual djinni.  

Djinni are a nomadic, magical race very much like fairies.  It is likely that fairies, djinni and elves all evolved from a single species.  I wouldn't say that to their faces though...

They have a lifespan of about 150-160 years

They have a very high magical aptitude, far better than elves, but still not as good as fairies.

They use magic in their everyday lives, but unlike fairies, they use it for specific things and there are rules about what magic should and shouldn't be used for.  

This information is hidden because of spoilers!  And for the people who have read Miss Prince and know what those other hidden spoilers were... this is a different spoiler.  

Their magical specialities are self-transformation and wind magic.  They can transform themselves into smoke (this may be where vampires learned to turn into mist from originally) which they sometimes do for travelling purposes or to hide.  They can also turn themselves into animals.  

Some djinni have vampiric tendencies and others have fangs even though they don't seem to need blood to live.  This suggests that long ago, many of them were vampires but the need for blood has been bred out over the centuries.    

Like fairies, they can be very spiteful... they're good at curses.  It may be that the wicked sort of witches studied with djinni and not fairies...

As I mentioned, they are nomadic.  They originate from Gaia.  They can be found on most of Gaia and have been found roaming Anima as well.  They used to frequent Earth but not any more.  They tend not to have ships and so also avoid Calypso.

They don't eat other humanoids, but sometimes they kidnap them to be slaves or brides.

Because the use of actual magic is limited by their laws, they are quite good at alchemy. Although this still comes with rules and regulations as to what it is and isn't to be used for.

Crossbreeding with other species is possible but rare.  They tend to keep to themselves.
Folklore Head Canon Challenge Day 6 - Genie
As I said, double post today. 

It's possible I will be late with day 7 and may have to skip it and do it later because I am still researching pixies.

Folklore Head Canon Challenge Day 5 - HarpyOnce again, this information relates specifically to harpies found in the Otherworlds of Miss Prince/VDBiF.
Harpies are bird-like women.  They have the head and torso of a woman and the wings and feet of a bird.
They have a life span of 100-120 years.
They are predators and will eat anything or anyone they can catch.  They also scavenge and steal food, since it's easier to eat.
   
They live in clans on mountains or in great forests.  Each clan has a queen.  
Their hair is actually more akin to feathers.  They are diverse in father pattern and colour.
 
They are female only.  They take partners from other species.  If the child is female, it will most likely be a harpy.  If the child is male, it will be more akin to its father.  Or it may just sicken and die.  Magical genes can be tricky.
Some harpies are in fact, sirens.  Though we think of sirens today as mermaids, originally they were depicted as winged women, ver

Some harpies are in fact, sirens.  Though we think of sirens today as mermaids, originally they were depicted as winged women, very much like a harpy.

It is possible that harpies were created by another species using magic and did not evolve on their own.  It must have been a very, very long time ago, because there are several bird women species that fall under the umbrella of 'harpy' - like the aforementioned siren - and each has their own culture and habitat.  It is theorised that they were created as living weapons for an ancient war.  Once the war was over, they could have escaped and colonised suitable areas... if you ask them they will just shrug or possibly claw your face off.  

They clearly originate on Gaia, despite their apparent ancient colonies on Earth.  I'm looking at you, Fairyland.  Djinni may also be the culprits.  Possibly it was both of them.

There are clans scattered all over Gaia, some on Anima and a few isolated ones on Calypso.  You can bet your ass the ones on Calypso are sirens.  
       
Folklore Head Canon Challenge Day 5 - Harpy
Double post again today because no posting over the weekend.  Probably.

Previous day -

Folklore Head Canon Challenge Day 4 - VampireThis is a little tricky because there are three main kinds of vampire in the Otherworlds and there may be more than one 'lol hidden for spoilers' fact on this one...
My usual vampires are based more in modern literature in one sense, are based in classic vampire literature in another, part of them is inspired by folklore and in a way they are also not actually based on any of these things.  Sort of.  Please see the description for a link to a picture that will explain more briefly.
Vampire, again, is an umbrella term that can cover anything that needs human blood to live.  But for the sake of the challenge, I will break them down into their four types and group together the related types.  
Types 1, 2 and 3 are almost the same thing, with Type 3 being slightly different.  Here are things they have in common:
They are all alive, with Type 3 being um... not undead, but constantly under threat of not being alive any more.  
This means they all need to eat, dr
