Today's post, however, is not about Addicted After All, unfortunately, but about showing you all what I've been working on for throughout the past week and a little more, and shouting love through the power that is...
Some of you may already know that the twins made a poll to choose their fandom name and, with miles ahead of the others, the winner was clearly Fizzle Force. Which is such a cool name! If you've read the books, you know that Lily Calloway's (the female lead of the Addicted series) family has a huge business that's even bigger than Coca Cola in this imaginary world: it's called Fizzle. And what's even more awesome, all the other upcoming stand-alones and series the girls are planning to publish are going to take place in this same world, so we'll be seeing the characters sip Fizz Life and Lightning Bolt! etc. Plus the combination of Fizzle and Force sounds like a supernatural army which is awesome since Lily and Lo (the male lead of the Addicted series) are huge comic geeks. And trust me, Fizzle Force would be a force to be reckoned with in kick-a worlds like Starling City and Beacon Hills. So yes, you should most definitely want to be a part of le Fizzle Force :)
At the beginning of August, the everwonderful Jenn and I teamed up to make a graphic to represent Fizzle Force in its superheroes' glory and it was so much fun to do! Brainstorming with Jenn is just the bestesst! She's super duper creative and you should all watch her videos about the series here. They're pretty darn awesome! I especially love the Calloway Couture one but I'm biased since Rose Calloway is my queen as you all know. Anyhooow, here's what Jenn and I came up with:
I love it to no end for multiple reasons, but mainly because we worked hard on this and I think this is a graphic Lily and Lo would very much be proud of. It represents everything Fizzle Force is and we thought that maybe you'd like to use it as a street team button and if you like it, you're free to use it wherever you like :)
However, even though I wanted to use the co-made button, it didn't go very well with my new blog design (though it's rocking on Jenn's Addicted series fanpage). I recently followed some of the stops of Sarah J. Maas's Heir of Fire blog tour and saw on Judith's blog [Paper Riot] that she had the coolest badge on her blog and then, as I was going through other posts on that tour, I saw that they had them in different colors to support Sarah. They're designed by Rachel [Hello Chelly] who obviously worked magic on these badges. Thank you to Rachel & co for inspiring me to do the following in different colors!
So what happened is that I designed a badge for my own blog. While it definitely doesn't look as cool or edgy as the badges with dragons for Sarah's street team (because dragooons!!!), I think they turned out okay. So how do the buttons I designed for my blog look like, you ask? Well, that's a good question! Here are some:
There are a few more colors (there will probably be more sometime in the future, but I don't know when since I barely have time to read or blog) and if you like them and would like to use one, hopefully one will go with your blog design. You can find the current selection (along with two Fizzle Force designs Jenn and I made) in my photobucket folder. You're free to use whichever badge/design you want and no credit is needed, the only thing you could do is link them to Krista and Becca's webpage or the books' GR page so that more people would be directed towards our favorite stories hence more possible fans and an even bigger Fizzle Force army.
*whispers* Even Scott McCall invites you all over to the power of good (and awesomeness) that is Fizzle Force by asking you to read these books and fall in love with these wonderful, heartfelt stories :) I have proof too! *points at the gif below*
That's basically what I've been up to lately. Started le MSc studies (hence not blogging all that much + dealing with reading & sort-of blogging slump), stressing over all the papers I have to write at some point during this semester (because typical Siiri behavior is to obsess and stress over things before they even happen) and doing random stuff like everything above. I hope you're all having a great day, have a great weekend and talk to you soon! x
What have you all been up to lately? :)
