Elizabeth Sladen

On the 19th April 2011 Elizabeth Sladen passed away from cancer aged 63. Best known for portraying Sarah Jane Smith in Doctor Who and the Sarah Jane Adventures she will be missed by many people all over the world. I was devastated when I heard the news and have only recently started to come to terms with the loss. So here is my tribute to Sarah Jane.



Elizabeth Sladen A.K.A Sarah Jane Smith

Elizabeth first played Sarah Jane in 1973 as companion to the Third Doctor. She remained companion to the Fourth Doctor until 1976 and returned for the 20th anniversary episode 'The Five Doctors' .
A favourite companion of many she returned to the new series alongside Tenth Doctor David Tennant in the episode School Reunion (2006) and was a main part of the end of Series 4 finale 'The Stolen Earth/Journey's End. She also featured in David Tenant's last episode 'The End of Time'.

Liz was so successful and memorable that she was given her own spin off series 'The Sarah Jane Adventures' which ran for four series until her death part way through the filming of a fifth series. Both the 10th and 11th Doctor's had an episode in this programme.



Sarah Jane in the Episode Planet of Evil 1975


Sarah Jane and K9


Sarah Jane and the Tenth Doctor

Cast of Sarah Jane Adventures

Almost phophetically the last episode Elizabeth Sladen acted in was called 'Goodbye Sarah Jane Smith'.
So I want us all to remember the memorable person that was Elizabeth Sladen.

Derek Landy is even more Awesome!

Well since I posted I remembered Derek answered a lot of questions Rosella asked...

Rosella asked some questions... a LOT...

whats with this hannah foley kid?


Hannah Foley is the name of a girl I met when the first book was released, who asked if she could be mentioned in the next one. She was the first person to ask this…!

what is the first/last names (taken) for the following people?
craven
quiver
dusk
caelan
moloch
melovent
meritorious
bliss? Is it like a vamp thing that they only have one name?



This will either be revealed in the books or not at all.

Can you PLEASE make a charachter called Rosella Embers? she doesnt have to be main, but just mentioning her would mean so much to me and make me faint. i'm not even kidding!



I’ll TRY to mention her…!

A little tip of advice: i think your loosing your sense of humor a bit. liven it up more!



Yes dear.

Have i told you that you are so incredibly awesome?



Don’t worry, I tell myself that every single day.

What made you choose gefforey Scrutinous as the character competition winner?



He was the most useful, and the one who fit the best. A lot of the character suggestions were hugely powerful people- or “game-changers”, as I call them. Basically, if they were introduced, they’d be so powerful that they could do ANYTHING, and they’d wreck the books…!

i dont get it. is wreath in hiding or dead? and is crux dead and china's hiding the murder?



SPOILERS! Wreath’s alive. Crux is dead. China’s hiding it.

what suburbs around dublin do u live in cuz i have a friend on the outskirts of dublin.



I live in North County Dublin. That’s all I’m saying!

who was skul-mans other partner/ the one who died a messy death? and will we hear more about him?



This will either be revealed in the books or not at all.

how old exactly is skul-man?



This will either be revealed in the books or not at all.

CAN YOU READ MY FANFIC!? http://rosellafanfic.blogspot.com/



Unfortunately, I only read fanfic at Christmas- it’s the only time I allow myself to do it!
WILL WE HEAR MORE ABOUT GHASTLY'S MOTHER?



This will either be revealed in the books or not at all.

is finbar mad or what?



You’ll see...

why was skul-man at gordons house that night?



He was looking out for Val- or Stephanie, as she was back then.

whats going to happen with crystal and carol now they know about magic?



You’ll see...

with the movie, is it going to be animation or real?



If it’s made, it’ll be live action, not animation.

how did melovent die?



This will either be revealed in the books or not at all.

is gordon edgley kind of like you, the best EVER author, witty, funny, awards as paperweights...



Heh. Gordon is a lot more cuddly than I am. Though I do have my moments.

Hi!



Er… hi…!

does only sorcerers have true names?



Nope, everyone does.

how does skul-mans facade work? does it cover only his face or his whole body?



Just covers his face.

whats fletchs life story? will we find out?



I haven’t decided that.

who's dexter vex? will we meet him?



Dexter’s one of the Dead Men, and yes, we’ll be meeting him sometime over the next four books.

why did dusk owe Baron Vengeous?



This will either be revealed in the books or not at all.

who's eliza scorn?



All will be revealed in Book 6.

in book six, pg 154, tanith says,
"they called them the dead men because they went on suicide missions and always came back alive."
then skul says
"not all of us," does that mean him or someone else?



Both!

why doesnt skul have a license? was it because hes a skeleton? i would of thought they would have a sorcerers test or something.



What kind of license are you talking about…?

SPOILER FOR MORTAL COIL *bottom lip trembles*
why did you kill kenspeckle? who will patch up skul and val now?
but as Nyx Dawn and i was chatting about, you, master, only kill off people for a reason. why?



Some people have to DIE. The fact is, we’re hurtling towards the last trilogy, where plot threads and strands will be tied up, and some characters will come to their end.

Master Derek, have you ever had a mosquito in your room all night and it buzzes in your ear and stings you all night and you never get to sleep, and when you do, you wake up comlpetly exhaused? has that happened to you or is it just me?

Mosquitoes aren’t that common in Ireland…

So yes.... there will probably be a third post coming up of random questions/comments from Derek. Maybe.

Derek Landy Is Awesome

Indeed he is. About a month ago I asked Derek 64 questions. Today on the blog...

Derek Landy said...

Octa's questions:


1. Do you have a middle name? If so what is it?

I think it’s Joseph, but I could be wrong. It could be Garrett. I’m not sure. Derek isn’t even my real name, it’s just one that I’ve been using since I was born.
2. Did you know Derek Landy is an anagram of Deryn Dalek? (I’m odd I know)

I did know that, actually. It’s one of my favourite facts.
3. What is Desmond Edgley’s true name?

Don’t know! He doesn’t know either!
4. Is Mevolent truly dead? (The same way Lord Vile was believed to be dead but isn’t). Will he return?


Mevolent is dead. Anything more than that, I can’t say for certain.
5. Does Kenspeckle have a brother?

He used to, but he died years ago.
6. How did the Faceless Ones arrive on Earth in the first place?

That’s one of the great mysteries of the world…
7. Will you give us a random (it can be irrelevant but must be TRUE) fact about Book 8?

Book 8??? Good God… No, I don’t think I can, not until I solidify the final trilogy in my head.
8. How did Oisin die?

He fell over a bucket.
9. Have you written yourself out of the proverbial corner of the powerful Jitter Girls yet?

Oh yes. There’s only one person who could possibly defeat the Jitter Girls… mwahaha...
10. What day is your birthday? (More specific than October please!).

October 23rd- the same day (though obviously not the same YEAR) that Skulduggery died.
11. How does it feel to be the Golden God of thousands of little minion-y fans?

It feels overwhelmingly right.
12. Have you decided who to dedicate the remaining 4 books to? How about us minions?

I know exactly who the next four will be dedicated to- and I’m not saying!
13. What magical powers would Crystal and Carol have when they reached 21 (if they are able to do magic).

That all depends if they decided to be Adept or Elemental...
14. What is Valkyrie’s address? 

Haggard!
15. Is Haggard a real town?

It’s a combination of Rush, Lusk and Skerries in North County Dublin- mostly Rush.
16. How on earth are you going to torture Tanith now she is inhabited by a remnant? What could be worse? Because you do intend to torture her in each book yes?

I don’t think there COULD be anything worse than her current state, so she might be safe from me for a while.
17. Will you write a prequel series?

No. I thought about it, but couldn’t find the enthusiasm.
18. What was the last thing Skulduggery ever ate?

Steak. Mmmmmm steak...
19. How did Beryl react when she discovered the brooch was missing?

I don’t think she’s actually noticed yet…!
20. The series seems to be composed of “trilogies”. The first one dealt with the Faceless Ones. The next seems to be all about Necromancy (Darquesse, Remnants and Lord Vile). What is the last trilogy about?

You’ll find out…!


21. Who is the Unnamed?

This will be answered in the books or not at all.
22. Can you answer the question you’ve always wanted to be asked but never have here?

Yes. The answer is: naturally.
23. What is the life story of Skulduggery’s first partner?

This will be answered in the books or not at all.
24. Will Scapegrace and Thrasher remain zombies until they decompose or will they ever return to life?

I haven’t decided yet...!
25. Does Skulduggery ever learn about China leading his family into the trap?

This will be answered in the books or not at all.
26. What does Skulduggery do with his spare head?

He keeps it in his hat room.
27. Will Cat die now Tesseract is too dead to look after him?

No, Cat is now living with Tesseract’s neighbour, Gertrude.
28. Do you like the name Aggoroth Shandular?

It is a fine name.
29. What century did Oisin come from?

One of the early ones.
30. Where is the soul located? Does Nye ever find out?

Only I know the answer to that one…
31. How many Jitter Girls are there?

Three.
32. What was the present that Skulduggery brought Valkyrie for Christmas?

He never told her.
33. Did Valkyrie ever get her big stick?

Not yet.

34. Are any more of the SP titles going to be based on Shakespeare quotations?

Probably not. Each trilogy has a title theme, so the style of titles will change against for the final trilogy.
35. Why is a soap bubble round?

Because a circle is a naturally occurring shape.
36. Did Kenspeckle like cheese?

He did.
37. Is the reason the Faceless Ones are evil because they had no one to read them bedtime stories when they were small?

English.
46. What is your favourite book (not one of yours).

Mucho Mojo, by Joe R Lansdale.

Naw. I used to, when I was in school, but my handwriting was terrible. Now I just write however I want to, and it’s much clearer...
48. Did you know the oldest cat lived to be 38?

Oh dear God.
49. Did you know that cats can have vocalization sounds of 100 different kinds and dogs can only have about 10?

I did not know that. Now I do.

Blue, maybe.

If a munchkin were flying on the back of a giant elephant with the wings of a monkey and the tongue of a dinosaur and the giant elephant was wearing rollerskates with sparkly unicorn horns attached and this were a world where air resistance could be up to 10% less and carbon dioxide and oxygen were neither present so the density of air also reduced and the value of pi was the weight of a fish would chocolate taste the same?
No, it would be slightly off.

Revel in this knowledge!!!!

Happy 12th April

Well I felt like making a birthday post but it's nobody's birthday which is just my luck.

So today shall henceforth be Happy 12th April Day or possibly Cosmonautics day if you live in Russia or this is highly unlikely but if you do live in the Roman Empire then today is the first day of Cerealia!

So for the next week let us all celebrate the festival for the grain goddess Ceres.

One custom was to tie blazing torches to the tails of live foxes and release them into the Circus Maximus.

They also have horse races.



Cute no?


This is a painting of Cerealia



Pity the Romans had no cereal bars...

Happy Cerealia!!!

Also Yuri Gagarin became the first human in outer space 50 years ago on this day.


Yuri on a coin

Tristessa informs me that today is also RAINBOW AND SUNSHINE DAY!!!!

MEEEEEEP!

Thank you Mar for making my life so much better.

Watch and be amazed!

Yay! A short comic!

Hey Y'all! i made this super short comic last night. Well, it was really more like this morning because it was about 1:15am, but whatever. So yeah, this took me about five minutes and i really need more help drawing chibi's (and thinking up titles because this one sucks)
