THE BATCAVE (Room Tour + NaNo Excerpts!!)

Hello, earthlings and extraterrestrials.

So, I redecorated my room recently, and because I'm super very proud of it, you guys had to tour my le batcave. So, without further ado...

TADA. Isn't it fabulous? It has a bookshelf and hangy lantern things. And it's all pink and gray. I love it. Thanks to my lovely parentals for doing a whole lot of work to help me have this fabulous Batcave. As you can see, I have a loft bed (to conserve space) and only one bookshelf (!!) but I should be getting a second bookshelf sometime soon.

HANGY LANTERN THINGS. I LOVE THEM. ADMIT IT YOU LOVE HANGY LANTERN THINGS TOO. How could you not?? I found these dudes at Wal-Mart and they are amazing. They give such a nice soft glow. <3 Perfect for writing.

This is over my desk. Look at my Edison light! And dry erase board! ad fabulous shelves!! The shelf brackets are gold and shiny which is why I love them so much omw. And the Edison light is the best thing.

So here you can see my lovely gold and white swivel chair and my fabulous vintage sewing machine desk!! It has a pedal which is fabulous for my ADHD self because I can pedal the pedal. Also the little fabric drawers are shiny and shininess = life right.

So this that you see before you is what my mom calls wall trash. As in it's a fabulous board with paint and a quote on it that hangs on the wall. It's very aesthetically pleasing I know. also you can see my ceiling which is lovely boards and looks all farm-house-ish. <3

A closer look at one of my shelves so that you can more clearly see the Yoda cross-stitch my mom made.  

IN MY WINDOW YOU CAN SEE MY CACTI. Their names are Merry and Pippin and they're adorable. A cactus is the only plant I can keep alive. *shrugs* I don't even know, man. But considering I can only keep a cactus alive, I would be a terrible mentor in the Hunger Games. STOP LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT I'M NOT OBSESSED. Yeesh.

Look! Knicknacks and books and my fabulous tricorn hat! You know, for when I'm channeling my inner George Washington. and tou can't really see it, but LEGO Robin and Batgirl are up there fighting Catwoman.

 So also I have a vintage captain's chair with a nice pillow in it. I can wear my tricorn while I sit in the captain's chair. I know, I'm a nerd. I'm a fabulous nerd.

NOW THAT THAT'S OUT OF THE WAY let's do some excerpts!!

“Raincoat here is the only one dressed for the weather.”
Evan looks down at his own black tee shirt and jeans. “Um,” he says, looking at his flip flops. “I see what you mean.” He looks back to Ariana, who still has on her sunglasses. “And what about you, with the sunglasses?”
“At this point they’re a part of me and I can’t take them off without wounding my soul.”
“Seems legit.”
Violette narrows her eyes. “Is legit shorthand?”
“Yes, for legitimate. I hadn’t predicted how messed-up your selective amnesia would be.” Evan shakes his head. “My oracle-ness is lacking today.”

I love Ariana. And Evan. Sophie ships them. I do not. Or, I mean, I might. I don't know, I'm so conflicted.

LACETTE IS A TERRIBLE DRIVER and probably insane idk man. I love it though. I'm only like a chapter in but I love them all already:
Lacette parks the car and turns to look at her white-faced companions.
“Don’t act all scared, you guys, it’s not like I have you at gunpoint… yet.”
Needless to say, they are not at all encouraged. Lacette walks toward the coffee shop, and as the others follow slowly behind, Violette whispers to Ariana.
“I’ll distract her and you get in the driver’s seat.”
Evan nods. “I’ll help.”
Ariana nods, still shaking from their many brushes with death. “I saw my life flash before my eyes, and I think I might have seen some other people’s lives too.”

and finally, I give you the best superhero team of all time:

“Look, Evan,” Ariana says, finally seeming to take some sort of real interest in their problems. “What if you just use your little future-seeing capabilities to help us out?”
“It’s not like a light switch, I can’t just make it happen!”
Violette stands up, suddenly. Ariana and Evan look up at her. 
“What is it, Raincoat?” Ariana asks, taking a sip of her coffee.
“It’s just… I know a guy. We have to get to New York City immediately.”
Ariana chokes on her coffee. “We have to go where? We can’t just, like, snap our fingers and show up in New York, Raincoat.”
“You can drive?” Violette asks Ariana. Ariana’s eyes light up.
“Oh yeah,” Ariana says, standing up. “I can most definitely drive."

Basically: Ariana likes cars and sarcasm and Violette has memory issues and a raincoat and Evan is basically a hippie who likes scones and Lacette is an insane person who should never be left alone near a nuclear reactor.

I love it.
HOW'S NANO GOING? Do you like my batcave? DO YOU LIKE SUNGLASSES AND HOLDING PEOPLE AT GUNPOINT the answer to one of those should be no?
