Gillian rubbed her forehead in order to clear her mind. She’d been up pretty much the entire night and felt exhausted. Not exactly the right-frame of mind to be having a meeting. Silvana thought otherwise.
“Tell me, Gillian.” she said sternly “Did you honestly think these mad schemes of yours would go unnoticed?”
Gillian sighed and put her hands on the arms of the chair.
“Is helping these dwarves so bad?” Gillian said “From what I understand these young women need my help.”
“The dragon has long been on your mind.” Gerwazy said.
Gerwazy was currently right behind Gillian leaning on a pillar whist Edyta was across from her just standing around listening in. Gillian turned around to look at Gerwazy.
“It’s true, Gerwazy.” Gillian said as she turned back to Silvana “But if Smaug were to ally with the enemy, a dragon could be used to horrifying effect.”
Silvana blinked in surprise. “What ene

Around mid-afternoon, Edyta had decided to take a walk with her children in order to relax herself and take her mind off her guests. Unfortunately, her children were busy discussing the guests and Edyta felt rather aggravated. It seemed she couldn’t get any time alone with her children.
“I don’t know why you have to be so negative about our guests.” Elizaveta protested “They all seem very nice.”
“Did you see what they did at dinner yesterday?” Estera responded “They threw all our food about! They stained my dress and I don’t even want to tell you the state of the wine cellar. When the servants told me, I thought they were exaggerating.”
“Mother, I don’t usually agree with Estera but she might have a point.” Alfonso piped up “They are rather messy.”
“I’m aware of that son.” Edyta said “But they’re still our guests. And while they’re here, we will respect th
Rise of the Planet of the Apes ReviewRise of the Planet of the Apes Review by Jabberwocky1996
Okay so yesterday I saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes for the second time in a row. So here’s my review. Let’s get our ape on!
Here’s the plot in a nutshell:
A substance, designed to help the brain repair itself, gives rise to a super-intelligent chimp who leads an ape uprising.
Okay so in case you didn’t know I am not a Planet of the Apes fan. I always thought it was a cheap “take the third option” for stuff like Star Wars and Star Trek. But I heard good things about this particular reboot and wanted to see what all the fuss is about. So let’s begin our journey with the acting:
This is a strange case because, quite literally, a good 90% of the people in this movie all take turns tossing around the idiot ball. I’ll explain that later. But suffocate to say, the script doesn’t allow actors James Franco, Frieda Pinto and David Oyelowo to emote properly. Not that they’re bad, they’re just…okay. The best human performa

Edyta led Gillian, Traude, Brianna and Barbara to a secluded part of Rivendell. It was a ledge which right at the end of it had a huge square crystal block. Waterfalls rushed just feet away from the edge of the ledge and created a soft mist around them. Edyta then put the map on the crystal block and put her hands on each other the maps edges to make sure it wouldn’t blow away.
“What exactly are you doing?” Brianna asked.
“Well, miss Brianna, allow me to explain.” Edyta said “These runes were written on a mid-summers eve by the light of a crescent moon nearly 200 years ago.”
“Really?” Brianna inquired.
“Oh yes.” Edyta responded “It would seem you and your friends were meant to come to Rivendell.” she then turned to Traude “Fate is with you, Lady Oakenshield. That same moon shines on us tonight.”
When she said that, the clouds moved back and the moon shone brightly and it hit the crystal block. The
