The Shadow of Morgul Garth: Part One
Based on a nightmare experienced after reading Lauren Oliver's The Spindlers for the fifth time.

Miricle Benereson had lost her mother at the age of one day, as well as her older brother, who had been seven at the time. Since then, the only family she had known was her father, a tall, muscular man of about thirty, her uncle, a shy, nervous thing who was also incredibly loyal, and her aunt. Her aunt was something. She was the only one who kept Miricle from feeling the loss too deeply, by stepping in and trying to act like her sister-in-law had acted.

Miricle had no human friends. She had inherited her uncle's shyness and had no wish for the company of girls her age. Instead, her best friend was a slinky orange tabby shorthair named Elcirim, the most magical name she could think of. They spent quite a lot of time together, and Elcirim seemed to always know just when Miricle needed a cuddle.

Occasionally Miricle would go up and ask her father why, exactly, he had named her Miricle.

“Because you escaped your mother's death,” Mr. Benereson always replied.

"But what was my mother's death?" she'd ask. And then her uncle would always find her something to do to distract her from the question.

After some drama involving a question of this sort, Miricle ran up to her room and locked the door behind her. Being worried, her uncle took a ladder and leaned it against the side of the house, hoping to check if she was okay by looking through her window. Almost as soon as he had reached the top rung, a bolt of lightning flashed across the gray sky (it had been raining that day) and suddenly Mr. Dovemoon no longer saw Miricle hunched up on her bed but a black hand, with long, curved fingers like spider's legs, reaching towards a cowering woman and a frightened little boy huddled in a corner. Then the vision faded, and the uncle, shocked by what he had seen, nearly broke his head by falling off of the ladder.

Soon Miricle turned eight, the age where most rich families send their children off to boarding school. The night before she was to depart Miricle had the strangest dream. She was standing in an ordinary-looking hallway, watching files of students pass by her. One of them turned and handed her a book, and she flipped it open, not really knowing why. She paused at a picture of a woman, the ugliest woman she had ever seen. If witches were teachers, she found herself thinking, this is what they would look like! The page turned, and dark red scribbles formed on the blank paper. This woman is a servant of

Miricle woke before she could see the last word. Packing the last of her bags, she tried to focus less on the strange dream and more on spending quality time with Elcirim before she had to say goodbye to him for eight months. But she couldn't quite ignore the nagging feeling that something wasn't going to be right.

The woman who welcomed her to school was the exact same woman who had been in her dream.

Miricle was beginning to think she was psychic.

She was so troubled by her strange dream that she spent hours every day thinking about it instead of paying attention in class, which made it so that she got an F on her math test. She was sent to talk to the woman from her dream, whose name was Ms. Garth. Stepping into her office, she noticed that the walls were lined entirely with bookcases filled with books. Anybody who liked books that much couldn't possibly be that bad.

“Goodmorning,” Ms. Garth greeted her, smiling a huge, ugly grin. “I suppose you're here to write that essay on why we learn math.”

“I- uh, I suppose so, Ms. Garth.”

“Good”, said Ms. Garth pleasantly, sliding her a piece of paper and a newly-sharpened pencil. “Now you can just…” She frowned, and checked her watch. “You know what? I might have you write your essay in there.” She pointed to a fairly large closet at the other end of the room. “It's got a lamp and a writing desk. Run along, dear, and lock the door behind you.”

Weirded out, Miricle chose to obey the strange teacher's orders, wondering what would happen to her if she didn't. Once safely inside, she spread herself out on her stomach and peered underneath the door. Was Ms. Garth doing something to the bookshelves? Yes, she was. She was taking all the books off of a shelf. The bookcase didn't have a back; that was strange. Then Miricle saw something that made her heart pound with fear. Five long, black fingers with needle-sharp ends were reaching out of the shelf.

Her heart stood still, and Miricle fainted.

However, I CAN submit, it's just that I don't HAVE to. In that case, I'll type up an article (after confirmation)

At this point, it's too late to submit this month. I won't have enough time to put it in the project.

The newspaper doesn't come out the May 3rd. I don't know why no one did a Mother's Day article.

Dear ajsya,

Here are my reviews done
Reviews of chatrooms
Chat rooms are everywhere these days, but with so many around, which one do you choose? This is Pixelbear_London and for this issue I am reviewing chatrooms on scratch.

1. CatChat: Scratch edition, by MikeDEV
Score: 5 / 10

This is because, although the art is nice, and it is Community guideline friendly, the problems with connections, these could be better. Other people in-game flicker in and out of existence. The lag is ok? at best, and unbearable at worst. This is going somewhere, but it also still feels a bit experimental.

2. Cloud Firefly test v0.4, by griffpatch_tutor
Score: 7 / 10
Even though this a project done by griffpatch, the execution is good. There is lots of space for the characters, many people can be online and there is no lag, as it it in pen. The characters (fireflies) could do more though, and there is few people online. Overall, good but still have to see where this one goes.

Conclusion:

The chatrooms today are still not great but you could still have some fun with other people on these chatrooms.

PixelBear_London, Scratch Observer.

Tell me if it is good as it is, or if I should improve.
P.S The reviews are kind of advertising, so I have done that too.
Maybe you could add another project? 2 is kind of an odd number and people might expect more

I will do more projects for this in future, but for now this is what you can put in or not.

Formally and sincere,
PixelBear_London
