Right, so, theories. Although the above should probably say my conspiracy theories, since they probably aren’t even the slightest bit true, and I kinda hope one of them isn’t. But, anyway, yes! To the theories…
1. The world has not been fully mapped for a reason.
Okay, so you know those maps of the world that take up the whole sheet of paper/card/whatever? And they had those keys for the countries with the densest populations and smallest landmass and so on? Well, on some maps, the key actually takes up part of the ocean. And I think that Utalentia is hidden underneath it.
Note: we were doing icebreaker things in Science yesterday with our new teacher, and we had to say where we’d like to live. I said Utalentia (obviously!) and he asked me where it was. Off the coast of South America, I said.
2. GGRM is lying to everyone.
I think this is rather self-explanatory. People say the book’s about 3/4 edited, but he won’t give a release date, or anything. So this makes me think that maybe it’s already finished, and he just doesn’t want to let anyone read it.
3. Tumblr is right about something spooky.
The other day I was surfing tumblr, as you do, and I came across this one rather unnerving post. Basically, the idea was that maybe if you have a phobia of something, then that thing is what killed you in a past life.
Now, I don’t know exactly what I have a phobia of, but I know that I’m pretty scared of one of my teachers.
(Yep, that’s right – only three. Don’t have anymore.)

“Great plan, Curtis, fantastic plan, with just two minor drawbacks. One, we don’t know where Ising is, and two, we don’t know where Ising is. Now, I realise that technically speaking, that’s only one flaw, but I thought it was such a big one, it was worth mentioning twice.”

I mean, not entirely, but it gets boring fast. I’m sure most people will agree with me when I say that it’s also just so repetitive. Anyway, so just now I’m making my way through Series 1 of RD (already done Series 2) and it was in the scene where Lister is reminding Rimmer how to spell “fish” (F-I-S-H, that’s how you spell fish. Then you just keel over, I’m sure it’ll all come flooding back to you…) making me think about that (or this, if you’re unfamiliar with it) other scene in another episode, I think it’s Balance of Power, where they have the argument about “okay is never a threat, Lister, no matter how many A’s you put on the end of it.”
And I’m seeing just how much fun it would be if I wrote a few gag chapters, replacing all of Mir and Em’s quips with RD quotes. I mean, just imagine it. So, like, instead of actually threatening her with execution, she just keeps going, “Okay, Shyron, okay. Okay, okay. Okay.” *rubs hands together evilly* I’m going to have so much fun with this!
1. “I am Miriam, with an IQ of six thousand – the same IQ as six thousand Potions teachers.” (Because, of course, the university refuses to teach gym, and she has a livid disrespect for said Potions Department.)
2. “You stupid jumped-up idiotic excuse for a princess!” (Again, no filofaxes.)
3. “Death isn’t the handicap it used to be. I can still get my revenge, remember.” (Added the last bit, of course.)
Hm, maybe I’ll do this instead of quotes. Yeah, yeah, let’s go do that.
