item no. 4

this world is full of other worlds. foreign and sweet. dangerous and full of adventure. 

places where fauns leap
mice and badgers lead human-esque lives
young wizards find their place under four banners
where riding dragons is a legacy of warriors
and fairy dust leads you home again. 

you're never too old to dream. 

i'm about to turn 21. the age of "growing up." 

i refuse to grow up if it means i have to stop dreaming

if i have stop looking in wardrobes

or cheering for Gryffindor

or tumbling down the rabbit hole.

so when i am old, they will say, "after all this time?"

and i will say

always

This giveaway closes on October 4th at midnight CST. Winners will be drawn that night using Random, and announced the following day. Winners will have 48 hours to claim their gifts, or new names will be drawn.

    A. I would go to the lake in the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. Because I want to be trained as a warrior, and to protect my clan. ;)

  25. I think that if I was to enter any magical place, it would be Alagasia. Or Amara. the first comes from the book Eragon, the second from the book DragonSpell. I would choose those places because they have Dragons.
