It's been a little while since my last blog update. Although I visit the wikia daily, there was some update recently that makes it harder to edit. Ughh -.- At least I have some more notes to add when I can get to a computer! My mom has been Christmas shopping on her laptop and my father working on the computer most of the time making it nearly impossible for me to nab some time. Additionally, there was just a snow storm where I live so I don't know how long I'll have electricity and Internet for. Other than that though, the snow is beautiful. It also makes me sad that my boyfriend is away, where it's raining, and can't enjoy it with me. The snow falling yesterday was so beautiful, and all I wanted to do was kiss in it. But I couldn't. I mi…Read more >
Dear Ransom Riggs,
I'm sorry for the trolls that had spammed the Wiki moments before you visited our Wiki. I am the only daily user, and it's hard to keep it in check. I and the admins (who show up ever so rarely) designed the Wiki to follow everything in the books and soon to be movie, not to make a mockery out of the masterpieces that you create. If you found it amusing, then good! Sorry for apologizing for something you found funny. But if you didn't, then I apologize for that.
(Yes, Ransom Riggs came to our Wiki.)Read more >
I saw her bragging about it. Like honestly, can they not act like annoying middle school trolls?Read more >
"That's why you treat Peculiars like me the way you do. Because we have something you don't. For someone who could have the world at their fingertips in seconds, it absolutely kills you that you can't have a soul like mine. You can hire the best doctors and scientists and engineers to replicate the kinds of things we can do, but it's not pure, and you know it. It has weakness, it is breakable, as our abilities are not. It tortures you that what I have is just out of your reach. It kills you that you can have anything you want, change anything you want- except for yourself. I know the truth, but I won't sit back and watch it destroy you- it already has."
"Maybe. Maybe I felt nothing. You know it's possible to feel nothing physically and onl…

Soooo saw the Bonnie & Clyde vs Romeo & Juliet. R & J had some good zingers but I don't really think that the lines for B and C had as much effort. Ughhhh disappointment comeeee onnnnn. Well at least B and C had to be taken down by a firing squad, R and J took themselves out.
Okay so anyway it's Monday. And I found out I can no longer edit from my phone in the precious minutes that I have. I'll try to figure out something when I can, but for now I'm sticking to noting things from the book, which should take a while.
Saturday was sssooo amazing. I went out with my boyfriend and friends to the mall and it was so fun. I held his hand :3 The good-byes are the worst part though, because I can only see him about once a week. It sucks but we fight …Read more >

November 8, in a Starbucks, at a few minutes to 10 pm, my life has officially transformed into awesomeness. Aka, the sweetest and cutest guy in the world asked me to be his girlfriend, and I said yes. It feels so good that all of the guys have broken me in the past truly mean nothing to me anymore. Although he is gentle, I know that this guy will protect me. I was a little nervous about the relationship at first, but now I really couldn't be any happier. The only thing that makes me sad is that he'll be very busy during December when my birthday and cotillion will be. It breaks my heart that I most likely won't get to dance with him. He's going back to Taiwan for winter break, and it also hurts to know that I can't go with him. I'm praying…Read more >
Wahoo! I think we have our EMMA!. Ella Purnell is reportedly in negotiations now to star alongside Asa Butterfield in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (movie).Read more >
Hey Peculiars :) I hope everyone had a good Halloween. What were you all? This year I was a Black Widow, though no one could tell. I went trick-or-treating with some friends and we got a good amount of candy. However, that wasn't the best part of my night.
After trick-or-treating my best friend and I went to the mall and hung out at the arcade while waiting for new friend from Taiwan. It was so much fun! They got some new games such as a Batman whack-a-villain that we played together to get more tickets, though my hands were really sore afterwards. We also worked together at skee ball haha. When my friend came, he surprised me with my first coffee and it was delicious. I kept the cup, even. It was a great night.
Today I went to the mall with…Read more >
HEY there Peculiar Children!
Have you ever thought about which actor/actress should play the parts in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiars? The movie is set to be released in 2016, and so far Eva Green has been cast as Miss Peregrine. We want to know who you would want in your ideal cast. VOTE in the polls below!Read more >
Hey everyone. Sorry I've been away, much has been happening and it's hard to contribute daily when my mind is a million places at once. However, I will definetly be more active when the third installment of the Peculiar Children series is out. Do Fiona and Hugh have a ship name yet? Fugh? Hiona? Idk haha.
Anyway today didn't go down so well for me. I took a medication on an empty stomach and ate very little... and ended up salivating down the couch before my father with his parental reflexes ran to the kitchen, dumped out the dog's water dish, and held it under me as I threw up for the first time in years. Thank god it wasn't worse than it could have been. I eat very irregularly, like I'm afraid to or something. Luckily my day wasn't comple…Read more >
If you don't know, I am a huge user of Instagram (and also VSCo, a good photo-editing app for professionals and like). I follow a lot of bookstagrams on the platform, and here are some of my favorite snapshots of the Peculiar Children books on Instagram:

Hello! Semestral break just started so I'm back! This post might not be related to the Peculiar Children, but Madeleine Roux is also a horror book author like Ransom Riggs. She is the author of Asylum and Sanctum, both horror titles with photographs.
Madeleine said her favorite author is Neil Gaiman and writing is the best profession since she can work with pajamas on and have a killer hairstyle.
Madeleine Roux questions about horror fiction and I will be posting it here soon! :)Read more >
Erg I got messages from a creep on Facebook -_- it seems this stuff never ends! I prefer the people in front of me, who I can reach out and touch and look into the eyes of. I can't believe it took me so long. It seems to me that a screen is a modern day shield. Those who are behind it can lie and hide and be who they want to be, even the weirdest sides of them, and block any negative feelings directed towards them. It's like in person things mean so much more. Talking to someone so long behind a screen as I once did with a friend ended up beautifully, unlike how things usually go. Meeting in person has been the closest I've ever gotten to magic. It's funny that something like a piece of glass can morph people into something they're not, if…Read more >
It seems that every guy that has been in my life always had the same drawbacks. I was always the one who had to do the caring and make the effort to be nice with little in return. There were always things I couldn't do, like talk to certain people, defend myself, say certain things, etc. It felt as if I was constantly walking on eggshells, keeping what I really thought and how I really wanted to be in a jar on the shelf. This time it's different.
He was the one who complimented me first. He always tells me how much he likes to be with me, like hanging out with me is a priveledge. I can be my hyper crazy self and he loves it. We can be goofy together and he never thinks that I'm weird or annoying. He's the sweetest guy I have ever known, and…Read more >
Hello everyone I haven't been able to get on much, or really have the heart to. My (second?) cousin Nicholas died at 16. He had a seizure disorder and I think a type of mental illness as well. I wasn't as close to him, but it hurts me to realize he's gone. The give pack of hotwheels I bought him were tucked into his casket with him, and after than I gave his mother and his sister a hug. I haven't felt like crying due to the shock, but when they played "The Greatest" by Kenny Rogers a little while ago, we all watched the music video and I wanted to fall apart. I can't believe he's gone. I wish I could say more, but I'm speechless.Read more >
Sooo I finally met the guy I've been texting. I was super nervous, but right away he was really friendly with me and I felt better :) It was a little awkward at times but I think it went really well. Things haven't been perfect for me lately, and he's helping me a lot to get through it all. At first just texting him I wasn't sure if he'd be different in person, but now that I've met him I know he's just amazing all around. We have a lot in common, too! I know I've only met him once, but it felt so good to be with a guy I'm comfortable talking to again. I'd really like to get to know him more. When I had to leave, I gave him a hug good bye and he hugged me back. With the last guy I liked, I was always doubting myself and I was kind of scare…Read more >
So I use Tumblr for 6 years now. Here's one of the .GIFs posted with the Peculiar Children Tag on tumblr

Not feeling my best today. I'm feeling frustrated because I am having a hard time doing things on the wikia and not feeling stressed. Whenever I am bored or don't know what to do, it's a powerful trigger for my anxiety or depression. Sometimes I feel like mental illness is a cloud that just keeps following me around and won't leave me alone. I really want to make a difference on here again but I just don't know where to start. I don't want to constantly edit, but check in every now and again to refresh myself. I'm feeling really lost in all honesty.
As for something that I am interested, I've added some more lines to the song I'm working on. Nothing is official yet, but I'm getting there.Read more >
Helllo Syndrigasti :)
TGIF! Although the second day of school went by a lot better, I am currently exhausted and my left temple is pounding. Taking a step back, I can definetly say that my life seems a lot lighter now, and I've got my sights set on now and what's ahead, not what's behind me. I think I'm starting to surround myself with the right people finally.
Anyway, I'm still trying to figure out What's Next on the wiki. It's been a while since I read the Peculiar Children books, so I'm thinking the next step is to reread the books and stick to my usual method of taking notes as I do so. This way, I can contribute to the wikia with the minutes I manage to steal at school. Still, there's a lot to be done to make our wiki the best it can b…Read more >
Well, I glided through my first day of school. It's strange that the entire time I was missing my old teachers and being isolated from my friends, I wasn't anxious or nervous about anything else. With everything that's gone down in the last couple of days, I'm surprised I'm not crying or breaking out in hives or anything. Really, I just feel numb.
Today I quickly discovered that I had one class with each of my two best friends. In Advanced Graphics, I sit no where near my best friend. In English 10 Honors, I sit in front of my other best friend, and have to compete for her attention with another girl who has not taken a liking to me. I'm not honestly sure how I'm going to make it through without anyone to talk to, but I'm coping. I guess.
I…Read more >
My friends and I talked about the casting this week.... and here's the first one (I'm going to upload the rest on the few days)!
He's Dylan Sprayberry. You may know him as Liam in Teen Wolf and the young Clark in Man of Steel.
His other appearances include:
- Soccer Mom
- Land of the Lost
- Chasing a Dream
- Old Dogs
- iCarly: Criminal Minds
- Tracey Ullman's State of the Union
- and Glee.
He looks very nice and we think he is perfect for the role. :)Read more >

I just discovered a way to edit the wiki from my iPhone, and though it's not as easy as using a computer, I can definitely do stuff using it. This could mean more contributions from me, I don't know. You see, I also have summer reading and babysitting.
A big part of the reason I haven't been doing much is that I've been relentlessly critical of anything I write, which makes me afraid to write. Letters and blog posts talking to myself to well, but anything else.... I honestly just don't think I can do it. The guilt I feel from letting myself be a bad contributor is heavy. It's hard to keep in mind that for me everything is a two way battle: what I want to do versus my brain. It sucks. Anxiety and depression and being self conscious is just not …Read more >
Every once in a while I'll have an amazing day that stands out over the rest. We all do. For me, these days are a dream since my summer hasn't been exactly joyous and my social life consists of fur and rubbing (Crystal) balls, to summarize it randomly.
Anyway, I'm thinking these days are like a drug. In fact maybe it's even dangerous for me. I stop thinking and everything goes down like an anti-fairytale. Instead of darkness and a happy ending, I get happiness and then it comes crashing down BECAUSE of the happiness. I wish I could just have fun without screwing things up for myself.Read more >
Hey there Peculiars! Shadow here :)
One of my favorite parts about the Peculiar Children series are the photographs, which is probably a favorite component of most readers. What's interesting about the photographs is that they are a certain type of photography. You may be thinking that I'm about to throw in the word "vintage" or "old" in the next few lines, but no, that's not what makes these photographs so special at all. The majority of the photographs in the series are called vernacular, or "found", photography. Okay fine "vintage" and "old" are apart of this type of photography, but not the most intriguing part. What makes these photographs so special is that they really were found, by people today. Much of found photography consists of …Read more >

I read that after the infamous lovers-in-crime Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were ambushed and killed in their stolen car by firing squad, their "death car" made appearances at various fairs and sideshows where people could pay $1 to sit in the car. Now, it sits in a museum behind glass. My reasons to live in the late 1930s is mounting.Read more >
While finding Enoch in the chapters of Hollow City, I just noticed that on Chapter One, Jacob saw Enoch's boat and said ALL four passengers are waving their arms at him, Emma and Hugh. I know Jacob, Emma, and Hugh are passengers of Enoch's boat. LOL, Ransom. I am now also searching for errors.
However, some pages are in protection. I think that the protection must be removed since in the homepage you said this wiki "is welcome to anyone to edit". Also, if we aim to be larger, we must allow new users to edit pages too so we can be reliable. If you're thinking about security, you admins can undo it everytime and the non-admin editors can too.
Yah, I'm still searching for errors.Read more >
I am really confused. Why I am blocked from editing my own user page? hahahahaha, I was so shocked.Read more >
Entertainment has been a very old business. Entertainment also includes books, but they create a space enough also for other things: like Art.
My father always exclaims that books aren't valuable. On the note, the books he mentioned helped me develop my writer skills. On every page of a book I read, I can feel the knowledge rushing to my brain.
A book is the sign of education. Often placed with a torch, it symbolizes enlightenment. My 300-book shelf has enlightened me. Are you enlightened?Read more >
My Uncle Sucks
My uncle's name is death
His name is simply Reaper
He smells of frozen breath
And he's really quite the creeper
He takes away those I love
And spares the ones I hate
With pale hands to push and shove
He ought to get his priorities straight
Daaaaad uncle set me on fire
What a bully so hungry for power
When I swear his cruelty can't get higher
He pushes me into the shower
If only it were my choice
He's not the one I'd pick
With his nails-on-a-chalkboard voice
He's a really big meanie.Read more >
My first set of three the finest blade
Light on top and heavy at the handle
Silver on the edge and black as a spade
Excitement burning bright like a candle
Ready and set with blade rested in hand
Pointed ahead and held vertically
Breaking away from gravity's demand
The door stands in silence waiting for me
Right now nothing matters and I don't care
Snap of the wrist and just one three-sixty
Focused on release and getting it there
Perfect feeling like my knife has missed me
I hear the sound of a good solid hit
A surge of pride and the feeling of power
If I have a niche then this must be it
Me, unbreakable, tall as a tower
Trying to be tough is all I did know
Now I soar like a bird whenever I throwRead more >
Please tell me someone feels me that there needs to be some kind of modern AU where all the peculiar kids are still peculiar but they don't have to live in a loop yet, and Millard ends up dating this girl who has been blind for a few years because of some accident, and they have been together for a while when she finds out she can get a surgery that might recover some of her vision. He has never told her that he's invisible because it never mattered, so they were perfect, but then she gets the surgery and naturally she freaks out when she can't even see a blurry outline of her boyfriend and they break up but then they get back together because they decided who the hell cares.
Basically I just really need to RP this on my Millard blog.Read more >
