Some Art

Hey, it's Jessica Again!  Here's some sketches I drew recently:
(These are anime characters)

 Natsu and Gray from Fairy Tail.  A rather silly anime with lots of explosions and battles.

 Ein and Zwei from Phantom.  this anime was very dark, as it was about a couple of brainwashed assassins,,,

Aww look, Nezumi and Shion from No.6!  how I love this anime...
(Nezumi loks so daaaark hehe!)

 Cheshire from Pandora Hearts.  This might be my favorite representation of the Cheshire cat, I dunno why.  Though all of the artwork from Pandora Hearts is beautiful.
(I`m quite proud of this one, as much of the picture was improvised by me, with only a "base" image)

Megami from Shiki.  My first actual well-drawn girl!  I'm even more proud of this, because I scrapped any sort of original picture, and used seven reference ones instead.  yay for the advancement of my artistic prowess!

Happy Easter!

Blurb for My Book!

No comments:
This is the blurb to my upcoming book, "The City of Keys." Tell me what you think!

Charlie Kimmus awakes in a completely different world – a place where there are sea monsters in the East River, machine birds in the sky, and leopards that prowl the subway systems of New York. The five boroughs, now called kingdoms, coexist in chaos. Manhattan wants to create an empire and has already conquered the Bronx.

That same night he is found by a band of mysterious children. They are the only ones left that oppose the City since they cannot be hypnotized. Because he is still fourteen, he is eligible to join them, and is accepted as Vizier of the Child Army after demonstrating his skill in combat. From the lowest position he slowly rises and is eventually appointed commander of his League. But being powerful is dangerous – even though the teenagers all have sworn loyalty to one another, they sometimes kill in order to rise in rank.

Suddenly, Charlie is swept on an exhilarating quest to recover the Keys, the only magical instruments that are able to stop the siege of New York. His successes with finding them are matched only by Twelve, a fifteen-year old girl he just met and is the only person he trusts.

But one day Charlie’s battalion is summoned into the City to fight. And no one has ever left it alive.

An Introduction to Jessica

So I've been part of this blog for a while now, and I still haven't posted.... So here I am!  This is my profile I gave Jadefireyes:

Hi, I’m Jessica! I’m a reader, a writer, an artist, and am anime obsessed. I tend to write a lot when I read a lot, and draw tons when I’m watching anime :P . My creativity comes in spurts, so bear with me ;) . I’m sixteen, with a tendency to use far too many emoticons while writing, so you’ll have to deal with that too! I reside in Canada, where we live in igloos, and ride the mighty polar bear to school. My dreams of the future are currently on standby at the airport on a flight from Berlin, so you probably won’t be seeing those anytime soon. My interests include: snakes, rats, biology, insane characters, anime, popcorn, that one lead pencil that has 0.3 lead, and a host of other delightful things. My current best friend is, which I use to search up fantastical idioms to stop my slightly OCD brain from exploding at the sight of two identical words in the same sentence. If you want to look up my marvelous blog, please feel free to do so, as the link is You can contact me anytime at if you have any questions, comments, ideas, or strange urges to chat with a random stranger! Thank you for reading, have a swell day :)

Did I spark you interest?  Well perhaps not, but here are some  things that I get up to:

Most EPIC EARRING EVER! made these together with my sister :D

 Art project!  Took me aaaages, but worth it.  It was originally supposed to be a costellation (as per the instructions given by my teacher) but err... I think I strayed from that course. gave me 100% anyway though :P

Screenshot of my team!  
(notice how they're all the same level; careful planning, that took)

I got a new ratter!  Any name ideas?  Preferably something badass, so she can be on par with  my other one, Cthulhu :P

Some things I was reading recently.  I've gotten through the John Green collection (other than an Abundance of Katherines) and I'm none too impressed;  Some of it was quite good, but not to the standard I was led to believe.
Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, now THAT was a great book!  Short read though.  I also read The Miseducation of Cameron Post (amazing book) and am now starting A Scanner Darkly.

There we have it, a short introduction to Jessica.  I'm hoping there are a few other anime fans out there, so we can go on about them TOGETHER.  (I can provide a full list of all I've watched if necessary)  If you haven't seen any anime, or just want some ideas of what to watch, I'm happy to provide suggestions!

I joined NaNoWriMo! I will be writing my books there. I need the help to get it done over the summer. My first book?

Of course, I have a lot more books in planning: three trilogies and a series made up of four books.This book is also part of a trilogy. Wish me luck!
P.S. If you're writing a book too, and want someone to comment on them, maybe we can exchange chapters over the summer! My email as always is

Snow, snow, ice.

Yesterday was a snow day! The blizzard swept in about a foot of snow in my area and school was cancelled. So I went to my friend's house. Yeah.
It was a chill day.
Im back to school today, unfortunately. But I got to miss gym! (it was yesterday!!)
I am going to get up to speed with my novel this afternoon, so I may or may not post.

Friends are amazing.
They guide you through life.
They are there when the boy you like gets a girlfriend.
They are there when you accidentally dye your hair blue.
They are there to tell you if you look okay.
They help you with homework.
They pull stupid faces to cheer you up.
They annoy you all the time.
They text you at 7am for the answers in that math homework.
They have to approve a guy before you date him.
They steal your food.
They help themselves to your bobby pins.
They take weird pictures with you.
They tell you the truth when answering, "do I look fat in this?"
They sleep in your bed at sleepovers.
They can handle your habits.
They tell you their secrets.
They aren't afraid to give you a slap.
They tell you off.
They are themselves around you.
You can share secret giggles at 3am.
Friends are for life. So do whatever you can to keep them.
