Friends and Enemies // Name Help!

Hey, my lovely and awesome readers!

I promise that the chapter will be up later.
Probably tonight, because of our computer situation. But it will be up.

It will be Chapter Fifteen // A Dangerous Escape. But as for now...

Today I have a request for help from you!

A name.

For this dude...

   Yep, I've decided to use that guy in my book. But I need a name. 
   I really liked the name Ganymede, but that's the name of a star, and sounds a little silly for a character. 
I thought that the name Ether might work too, but I'm still in doubt. Would you please help me?
Please don't feel offended if I don't use the name you picked. 
If you don't want your name to be rejected, I would recommend not suggesting one, because I'm rather picky in choosing names, and because only I really know the character, only I can choose the proper name.

I know that he plays Merlin in some BBC show, so you don't need to tell me. Also, please don't comment to tell me what a great show it is or basically anything about it.
 I'd just rather limit comments to my book, not a show.

 Also, next Friday is Durin's Day, and the premier of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug! 
We have a choir concert that day, but we will definitely see it within that week.

Well, that's all for now.

Be a friend, not an enemy,

The Watchmen Files // Calling On All Readers!

Hey everyone!

   It's me, Darrion!

   I've got something special for you this week...

   Why the picture? Because I don't know what else to do, and I needed to grab your attention. And it's kind of funny... I mean, just look at his expression?

   Anyhow, right now, I'm typing this post on my Dad's laptop. Why? Because our home computer, the one that I write my chapters on, has passed on. It is dead. A short power outage took it in the end. It had a good, long, often going out on us, life. Seriously, it's really, really old in computer years. Not like a old white box, but it's still old.

   So we will hopefully be getting a new one sometime real soon! I'm excited about that.

   But I did not finish my chapter this week, with the computer setback and all. So we have no chapter. But I think that this is good in a way, since this is a important turning point in the story, and I have to have time to work on it. I may even have to split it up into two chapters in the end...

   Anyway, I've got something else for you today! Please, don't leave, this is a very important question I must ask all of my readers. I need your opinion for this!

   But I'll get to that in a second :) I want to show you some things that remind me of this story...

 This makes me think for Mason and Duke. Duke thinks Mason's an idiot and a Hydra, and Mason thinks Duke's a snob and a bully. Which, incidentally, he is.

 Oh look, something for Conner. Now note, he's not actually British. He just became an American citizen. His mum was British, but his dad was Scottish/Irish, and they live in Ireland with their daughter, Bernadette, Conner's younger sister. Conner picked up his mum's accent while they (him and his sister) were being homeschooled.

More for Conner

And you can guess who this is for

First chapter. Mason. Nuff said.

I know, it's kinda mean. But still!

   Okay, back to the problem. Our problem. The final problem (the Sherlockian strikes again!).

   You see, I am going to write a special. A holiday special. At the moment, it is titled, 'The Watchmen Files: A Holiday Special: The Christmas Addition'. I may come up with a better name for it sometime soon. It will hopefully be 12 chapters long or less, and I would posted a chapter a day until Christmas day (or eve, I'm not sure yet).

   Great! But what's the question here?

   Well, I don't think I'll be able to finish the first file before Christmas. Big roadblock. So what am I going to do?

   That is the question! There are two solutions.

   Option one:

   If you, my faithful readers, would like to read it Christmas week, a chapter a day, then that is what I'll do. I would, in that case, have to tell some spoilers for book one. Spoilers! I can't believe myself. Tell you what's going to happen before I write it? What's the fun in that?

   Or option two:

    I wait to post it until after I finish the first file (which will be sometime after Christmas). That way, you've read all about what happened for yourself, and I don't have to tell you. Spoilers are gone. But it would be after the Christmas season, which isn't as cool.

   Or for you who would prefer option two you could just wait to read it after I'm finished with the first file, then find it here on the blog.

Well, this is your call, people! Please, comment bellow either on Blogger or on Pinterest. Tell me what you think, or if any other family members or friends read it, tell me what they think also! And tell me why you think so. Is it because you'd rather just wait to know everything? Or because you want it in the Christmas spirit?

I need your opinion, and I'll tally up the votes next week. How about that? What will it be? I'm curious to see :)


Postscript // Note from Willow // I will try to have my next chapter up by Friday, but as D said, our computer is toast at the moment. So the only times I have to work on F&E are in my noggin and on this laptop when Dad comes home. Argenzee!! Okay, whatever. Btw, I'm sure Ammelia will have her next chapter up next Monday. She was really busy this week. -Willow
