Mibba Halloween 2018 "Candy" Bowl

Hello, all! It is I, your friendly neighborhood Caitallo! As you have likely noticed, it is October, and in October (and sometimes it bleeds into surrounding months, especially when people bite off a little more than they can chew) on Mibba, we do a little thing called Mibba Halloween (or Mibbaween, as some have abbreviated it.) Here is the official forum for more information on some site wide...

Hey Mibba; Long Time No See

So, I disappeared again! Hello! I do that from time to time. Usually my absence isn't noteworthy and little to nothing has happened during said absence.The same cannot be said this time though. Just a heads up before you read on, there's gonna be some heavy stuff in this blog update so if you are feeling sensitive or on edge or anything like that you might wanna spare yourself some trouble. (TW:...

Mibba Halloween 2017 "Candy" Bowl

It's that time of year again folks! And yes, I'm keeping my blog title "Mibba Halloween" even though everybody calls it "Mibbaween" nowadays. What do you want from me? I'm old! You're lucky I'm not throwing you all off my lawn!Anyway, since I apparently am just never going to make a traditional bowl of actual candies ever again, this year I've decided to make a bowl themed around...

Cleaning House, Writing Fic, and Other Things!

Hello, all! How are you guys doing? I thought I would make a random blog entry today while I am putting off my chores, so allow me to ramble a bit about what's going on in my life (or the little slice of it I feel like sharing with you all at this time, that is) at the moment.So, for the last week or so, Bear and I have been doing some MAJOR house-cleaning. Like going through the whole house,...

Describing Your Fic Badly

Hello, all! No, this blog entry isn't about my near inability to write a good description for my stories (nor anyone else's!) That's a blog subject for another time maybe (although, I'm the last person that needs to write it because... I don't really have good advice for it.)No, for this blog entry I thought I'd play a little game that might end up only amusing me, but I'm hoping to encourage...

This Meme Only Exists to Show Off Your Taste in Music (Fanmix Yourself)

So, I have noticed in the blog section several people are doing this survey thing that's like pick a song that blah blah blah, and I wanna do it, too! I love music, and I love survey meme kind of things. And yes, I want to show off my taste in music to all of you because who doesn't love doing that honestly.I listen to a little bit of everything musically, and I listen to and love A LOT of music,...

Blogging about My Fandoms: Quantum Leap

Yay! Finally, another blogging about fandoms! Today I will be talking about another of my favorite shows: Quantum Leap!(Oh, catchphrase!)So, I really love this show a lot. I love the show, and I love the tiny but active fandom for it. I write a fair amount of fic for it (nothing posted yet because they aren't ready yet), and I read fic all the time. I have several good online friends in that...

I Got Baptized! (And Some Other Stuff Happened, Too!)

So, another blog about my life because apparently I do that now. (I really do want to do a Blogging about Fandoms blog later tonight if I can though!) Yesterday was a big and awesome day for me. It was really great, and I'd like to ramble a little bit about it.So, I got baptized! That was an amazing experience. I had been so nervous about what I was going to say to everyone when I gave my...

Of Baptisms, Weird Fic, and, Uh, Other Things Going on in My Life

Hello, all! I felt like randomly making a blog post about my life at the moment, which isn't something I do terribly often, usually preferring to make my blog posts on here about specific topics or themes. (By the way I do plan to do more Blogging about Fandoms! I may even do one later today or tomorrow! I definitely want to do another one soon!)So, this coming up Sunday I'm getting baptized, and...

Morals and Messages in Writing

So, I was originally planning on doing another blog in my Blogging about my Fandoms series, but I think I will put that off just a bit longer and instead talk about a topic that has been on my mind a lot lately. I was actually going to make a thread about this in the Tips section of the Writing forum, but a search on the subject revealed an old one. I tried reviving it, but thus far I've gotten no...

Blogging About My Fandoms: The X-Files

Okay, so as you might have deduced from the title, I am going to start doing a blog series where I write about fandoms I am in, with a particular focus on those fandoms that don't have much representation on Mibba (which, let's be real, is most of my fandoms. lol)For the first installment, I want to talk about The X-Files because it's my favorite show of all time. It's by far the fandom I read the...

Writing in Unpopular Fandoms

So, I said I would try to blog more often, and this is a topic I thought might make for a decent blog post. A more accurate title might be "Writing in Fandoms That Are Not Popular" (because "unpopular" tends to have a more negative connotation, like being openly rejected where the fandoms I work in tend to be, well, just not paid any attention to at all!) BUT that's a less snappy title!Anyway, in...

Mibba Spirit Days - Superhero Week!

So, I haven't done a Mibba Spirit Days in a while! Mostly because I'm usually either too busy or just not on this site much whenever they happen to occur. But I'm a nerd and the theme this week was superheroes, so, like, I had to. Especially considering I was already kind of itching to change my theme again. (It's weird sometimes I keep themes for half the year and sometimes I'm over them in a...

Mibba Halloween Update and Other Things

So, I should have completed most of my candy bowl things by now, but I know a few of you are still waiting on comments. I just wanted to make a quick blog post to let everybody know that I will be filling requests into November as well. Hopefully by the end of the first week of November I can have everything done.I'm also thinking about doing another giveaway in the winter because I've been...

Mibba Halloween 2016 "Candy" Bowl!

Hello all! It is now the most wonderful time of the year! Mibbaween (or Mibba Halloween, as I, an ancient old timer, like to call it.) This year I thought it would be fun to do an urban legend themed candy bowl!The rules are the same as always. You have to say "Trick or treat!", or you will get nothing. One item per person, except for friend requests which are unlimited and can totally be grabbed...

Possible Upcoming Things and Other Relevant News Items

Hello, all! (Or rather "hello, all who actually read this!") It is I, the Caitallo, and I'm sure you might be wondering what the heck I'm blogging for because I usually don't do that unless it is Mibba Halloween or some other kind of holiday around here. Well, I decided to make a blog post detailing some ideas for upcoming projects and also as a way to let you guys know what I'm working on and all...

Mibba Halloween Open Bar (My "Candy Bowl"!)

Happy Mibba Halloween 2015 everybody! This year I want to do something a little different, so instead of having a candy bowl; I'm doing an open bar! (And don't worry; here, everyone is of age! ::XD:)The rules are the same as always. You have to say "trick or treat", or I will not serve you. I'm limiting everyone to one treat per person, except friend requests; anyone can take them even if they've...

My Life Lately and How It Relates to Mibba Halloween Things!

Okay! So, I have had a heck of a lot on my plate lately. School has been absolutely mad, and I am sure my fellow college students can relate to that! It's just getting to be that point in the semester! So, I've been very busy with school and work (I work at the school.)Also, as I am trying to get teacher certified, I have been trying to get all my observation hours done in time, and that has been...

Mibba Halloween 2014! Yay!

The most wonderful time of the year is upon us! I for one am SO EXCITED, YOU GUYS! If you don't know what time I am talking about check out this thread. It is, of course, October, and in October we celebrate Mibba Halloween, or as some call it: Mibbaween. As the link I posted explains, one of the ways in which Mibba Halloween is celebrated is to put out a candy bowl, so here is mine:This....

Re-Reading Very Old Stories

So, have any of you guys ever gone through your stories on here and read your really old work? That's what I just did, and it was fascinating, if occasionally cringe-inducing. It's remarkable how much I've changed over the years; I'm not saying I was a lousy writer back then (because I know I was pretty good) but I've really changed a lot style-wise in ways I feel are mostly for the better.Also,...
