Fairy Metal Thunder Read-Along and Scavenger Hunt

Fairy Metal Thunder Read-Along & Scavenger Hunt hosted by In the Closet with a BibliophileReading the ParanormalTina’s Book Reviews and The Unread Reader.

1. Unfairly grounded by his parents, Jason decides to lie to them so he can go to the audition in Minneapolis. Unfortunately, not only does the audition end poorly but his parents discover his lie and things go downhill from there. Tell us the most outrageous lie you’ve ever been caught in. Bonus points if you can provide pictorial proof. Reenactments eagerly accepted.

Don’t you remember last week when I said I was a good girl? Gawd. I know I have lied before, I am a human being after all, but I’ve never really been caught because I don’t go with ‘outrageous’ lies. I never had any reason to! My dad has always let me do my own thing so why lie?

Ooh I can think of one.. I was friends with a guy in my teens who was a bit mental, I loved him to bits. He knew somebody from his college who wouldn’t leave him alone and he found entirely annoying. This particular person was coming out as gay (as was my friend) and my friend wanted to scare him off so the MSN conversation started up and my job was to scare him so.. I pretended to be from another town nearby and really come on to him and talk about how *ahem* sexually active I was etc. etc. Unluckily, this guy found me hilarious and we became quite close friends. The truth never was revealed.

No pictures, I’m afraid. They would involve dildos.

2. In Faerie, Aoide is summoned to see the Faerie Queen. Have you ever met someone important like the Faerie Queen? Someone famous? Tell us the story behind how it happened. Once again, pictures are a plus!

I met Seal once. I didn’t have a picture taken but we were at the Max Power show (worst. weekend. ever.) because my dad had a stall selling some watches and at the end of the show this guy walks up to us and introduces himself as Seal, kissing me on both cheeks, shaking my dad’s hand and professing his interest in the watches.

3. Caught lying to his father about his non-existent job at the car wash, Jason has now found gainful employment at Buddy McSlawburger’s – where he’s forced to wear “the funny hat” as part of his uniform. What’s the worst job you’ve ever had? Did it involve a particularly noxious uniform? Tell us about it – in riveting, full-color detail!

I have, thankfully, not had any awful uniforms. Just nasty polo shirts and shoes that have deformed my feet. As for worst.. I’ll often talk about my time in the charity shop as my favourite time but there were afternoons sorting through the clothes where I’d come across mould, bugs and all sorts of nasty grime in those bags. By all means, donate your rubbish to charity shops but PLEASE clean it before you donate, you aren’t doing anybody any favours otherwise.

4. In an effort to regain their stolen instruments, Aoide and Rhodia travel to the sugar swamp to hire a hunter. Wouldn’t you love to live somewhere where the water is sweet and the grass is made of sugar cane? Show us a picture of you enjoying your favorite sweet treat. Or, rewrite history and tell us how your version of the sugar swamp would differ from the one in the book.

I don’t think I would! I’d live with constant headaches! I am a total chocoholic though so I must go with..

Yeah, I know, not a swamp. But C’MON!
