1952 / koality (but not quality) intro
« on: 12/06/2017 at 19:45 »
When you're a lazy uni student, you copy and paste your previous intro uwu

This is me, encapsulated in one gif:


Hey there! Sorry for no pretty code; I can't code (STILL) for my life. It's Milla from California, and I'm living in New Haven, Connecticut for university (Yep, that temperature change has been jarring). I've been on site for technically like two and a half years, but if you take out all the times I've been MIA, it's more like three quarters of a year (STILL).

Here's a list, because lists are nice!:
1) I am a baby bulldog, and Handsome Dan is my idol. BOOLA BOOLA!
Me:

Same, mate.
2) However, the koala is my spirit animal (except for wet koalas; they look like demons).
3) I want to move to Europe or Australia in the future!
4) I swim!
5) FOOD IS LOVE. FOOD IS LIFE.
6) I love, love, love fashion and modeling and stuff (whoops, I may have done too much Black Friday shopping)
7)I hate bugs; please remove them from the surface of the planet.
#8. The 80's were totally tubular!

9)My muse has spread its wings and flown away for a bit, but hopefully it'll come back soon!

Favorite Film At the Moment: STILL DUNKIRK (OK FIONN WHITEHEAD AND ANEURIN BARNARD AND HARRY STYLES AND JACK LOWDEN AND CILLIAN MURPHY <33), but Baby Driver was totally awesome. I also love The Last of the Mohicans and period drama films and 80's movies, LOTR, X-Men, etc.
Favorite Director: Chris Nolan. I even saw him in person at the airport once haha
TV Series: SHERLOCK, BBC Period Dramas (Watching War and Peace right now, love Grantchester), aaand other BBC series, Stranger Things, Merlin, Riverdale, The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, That 70's Show, Glitch, Godless, Legion, Gran Hotel, Las Chicas del Cable, and others that I can't think of right now.
Music!: I keep on listening to Lorde and Harry Styles right now, but I love alternative, rock, indie, 80's New Wave, classical, and Yale's a cappella groups. Depeche Mode and David Bowie are A++++++, but also so many other bands! Adding Dua Lipa.
Books: I love them so much! I'm currently reading Cell Biology by Karp (haha so fun), but I'm a sucker for Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and ginormous Russian novels (and maybe also teen fantasy novels uwu). Screenplays are fun to read too!
Guilty Pleasures: H20: Just Add Water, One Direction, and Descendants 2 (Harry is my fave hahahaha)


And here are my babies!

Newton Mariner: Current Castle charrie going into his fourth year. He only knows like three people at Hogwarts. I've got to play more with him!

Lyra Spencer: My first character, who dropped out of school because her player was gone forever and is now a pro quidditch player for Puddlemere United. She's looking for some love and support (and some threads haha)

Andrés Alvear: He's been engaged for 12095103950 years; I think he needs a different wife. Valencia Alvear's older (half) bro who doesn't want to stick to Alvear rules, but kind of does anyway. Amateur photographer.

Robin Märchen: King of the Forest, Prince of Thieves...he's Robin Hood in the flesh. Almost always carries his bow and arrows and is often with his fox, Marian. Behind the arrogant and stubborn facade is a heart of gold.

Noah Graves: An filthy rich heir without a cause. Spoiled, reckless, hot-headed, and rebellious, he isn't easy to make friends with.

Plus, some other charries in the works!

If you want to thread, I'd definitely be happy to! Just send me a PM or find me in chat!

1951 / baby bulldogs
« on: 08/01/2017 at 06:41 »

Hey there! Sorry for no pretty code; I can't code for my life. It's Milla from California, and in twenty days I'll be moving off to New Haven, Connecticut for university (Yep, that temperature change is going to be jarring). I've been on site for technically like two years, but if you take out all the times I've been MIA, it's more like three quarters of a year.

Here's a list, because lists are nice!:
  • I am a baby bulldog, and Handsome Dan is my idol. BOOLA BOOLA!
  • Me:
  • However, the koala is my spirit animal (except for wet koalas; they look like demons).
  • I want to move to Europe or Australia in the future!
  • I swim!
  • FOOD IS LOVE. FOOD IS LIFE.
  • I hate bugs; please remove them from the surface of the planet.

  • TV Series: SHERLOCK, BBC Period Dramas (Watching War and Peace right now, love Grantchester), aaand other BBC series, Stranger Things, Merlin, Riverdale, Legion, Gran Hotel, Las Chicas del Cable, Gilmore Girls, Daredevil, and others that I can't think of right now.
  • Music!: I keep on listening to Lorde and Harry Styles right now, but I love alternative, rock, indie, 80's New Wave, classical, and Yale's a cappella groups. Depeche Mode and David Bowie are A++++++, but also so many other bands!
  • Books: I love them so much! I'm currently reading Uprooted by Naomi Novik which is absolutely wonderful, but I'm a sucker for Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and ginormous Russian novels (and maybe also teen fantasy novels uwu). Screenplays are fun to read too!
  • Guilty Pleasures: H20: Just Add Water, One Direction, and Descendants 2 (Harry is my fave hahahaha)

And here are my babies!

Newton Mariner: Current Castle charrie going into his third year. He's still so angry about getting into Slytherin and only knows like three people at Hogwarts. I've got to play more with him!

Lyra Spencer: My first character, who dropped out of school because her player was gone forever and is now a pro quidditch player for Puddlemere United. She's looking for some love and support (and some threads haha)

1950 / senioritis is brutal
« on: 04/10/2017 at 23:53 »
Hey everyone! My name is Milla, and I've been on site for over a year and half now (it's more like a year if you count all the hiatuses). I'm from sunny California, and I'm a senior in high school, soon to be a freshman in college either in Cambridge, MA or New Haven, CT and the senioritis is becoming too much to bear!

Here's a smattering of things about me:
- My favorite movie is The Last of the Mohicans, but I actually like a zillion movies
- Favorite TV shows include SHERLOCK, Stranger Things, Legion, Riverdale, The Expanse, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, etc, etc. Also BBC period dramas
- Musical interests include 80's New Wave (Depeche Mode and the like), David Bowie, REM, shoegaze, The 1975, Two Door Cinema Club, and other more obscure indie/alternative/rock bands, classical music, soundtracks, and more!
- I love reading, of course, but I won't even try to list the books I like XD
- I like singing, acting, dancing (even though I'm terrible)
- Writing poems is a thing I love to do when I get the inspiration
- I spend too much time on model management sites
- I swim for my school's varsity team!
- I'm science-y yay
- I can't code for my life
- I can speak Chinese and a little French and German

My charries!

Lyra Spencer: My first ever baby, who's now playing for Puddlemere United and the English National Team. She's oh-so-lonely so be her friend!

Andrés Alvear: He's been engaged for 1203950298 years (STAY TUNED FOR WIFE, COMING SOON) c': whose fav sibling is Valencia Alvear.

Robin Märchen: An arrogant little birdy with a heart of gold (somedayyyy).

Newton Mariner: My resident Hogwarts student. A soon-to-be second year who hates being called Newt even though everyone calls him that anyway.

Rory Hughes: A shy and dapper gentleman who needs to get back on top of things.

AND LIKE ONE MORE BABY IN THE WORKS!

1947 / blue is the luckiest colour
« on: 04/18/2016 at 21:08 »
Hey everyone! I'm Milla from sunny California. I've been Hoggies since last year. I'm on hiatus, but I just wanted to let everyone know I'm still around (I'll probably be back for the summer)!

Anyway...about me...I'm still in high school. My favorite subjects are chemistry and math. I AM ADDICTED TO DAREDEVIL AND SHERLOCK. I love alternative, rock, and classical music, and I'm really interested in film (watching and making them) too. One last thing...I have a lot of actor/model crushes XD

My babies are Lyra Spencer, Andres (Andy) Alvear, Rory Hughes, and Newton and Kaya Mariner who I haven't started playing yet. Feel free to PM me even though I'm not active...I still check!

Lots of love <333

p.s. Sorry...that was terrible writing and I didn't put any gifs in :P

Past Workshop Prompts / Workshop Prompt 1: Emptiness
« on: 08/24/2015 at 07:39 »
Was he really gone? Was anyone ever really gone?

Perhaps not, but there was an emptiness in her heart, one that could not be fully filled.

But it was a void, only a physical void. Not an everlasting one. There could never be an everlasting one. She would remember.

Yes, he was gone, but he was not.

1945 / Girl, Interrupted [Caius]
« on: 08/18/2015 at 06:55 »
Oblivion...then, Six. Seven. Eight. Nine. Ten. Eleven. Twelve.

Lyra's eyes fluttered open, staring at the ceiling above her. Her slumber had been on and off the whole night and for the past few days.

It was so easy to wake up yet so hard to fall asleep, so she decided to just stop trying. There was just one person she needed to see: Lou.

Pushing herself out of bed, Lyra ran her hand from the top of her head to the nape of her neck and felt nothing but perspiration. Boy, was it sweltering in the treehouse. What Lyra needed was some fresh air, not only to get out of the heat and awaken the senses but also to clear her mind of her whatever was stuck there.

Lyra hopped lightly from her bed, her toes touching the wooden floor softly. She grabbed her boots and put them on, putting each lace carefully through all the holes.

When that was done, she stood up and looked around the room at all the sleeping heads. Sure that no one was awake, Lyra began walking towards the door, slipping on over her nightgown the wool sweater that had been hanging on the railing of her bed.

She headed for the Tugley Wood, where she could wander in peace. It was just a little after midnight and the moon was high in the sky. It was almost eerie to Lyra, but she liked it. She could already feel the beneficiary effects of the pure air.

Lyra heard rustlings in the trees, but it was strange. There was no wind. She fancied she saw a figure standing in the shadows.

Squinting, Lyra walked closer to the apparition. "What in the bloody hell is that?" she murmured under her breath. Was that...a boy?

1945 / Rebel With A Cause | Lyra Spencer
« on: 08/13/2015 at 06:25 »
❉ Lyra Spencer ❉

15 ❉ Unsorted ❉ Determined ❉ Intelligent ❉ Rebel With A Cause





❉ (Mostly) Everything So Far ❉


Lyra's a born and bred Brit whose favourite beverage is, well, tea, with loads of cream (she's got a sweet tooth). She's an orphan too. At the age of 7, she lost her father, who left her a strange stick, and just three years later, she lost her one and only brother to the war.

While at the orphanage, Lyra enjoyed reading and sneaking out of the house often to explore London. Since she often watched the Horse Guard's Parade at Buckingham, she developed an avid interest in horses. At night, Lyra would also climb onto the roof of the children's home to look at the stars. She also practised cello when she could.

Before she received her letter from Hogwarts, Lyra did not even know of her magical heritage. But once she arrived at Hogwarts, Lyra excelled at most things (excepting Divination. She just didn't get it!), and quidditch became her favourite sport.

Lyra is a determined and intelligent girl, but sometimes she can be a little too proud. She usually follows the rules, but she can be rebellious when there's a reason to be (or simply when she feels like it). She would be up for a lot of fun and maybe a few escapades sometimes.

Looking For: All sorts of people (friends, enemies, etc., etc.)
