Diary of Clara Lear

Diary of Clara Lear

I'm princess Clara Lear. The third daughter of king Augustus Lear from the Bard's play The King Lear. I'm currently studying at the prestigious Ever After High, I'm in the Freedom Year which means I'm a freshman. Now that I've introduced myself allow me to tell you about my schoolmates.

My roommate is Violet Twelve, daughter of Viola from the Twelfth night. I like her but she makes me nervous sometimes. Particularly her hobby.

She is a member of the Costume making club. It's a club where you design and sew your own costumes and then make photos while wearing them. She pays an unholy sum of money on various fabrics and accessories. It's not only jewelry but fake noses and teeth as well. I'm afraid that one day the piles of clothes will invade my half of the room. It's not that Violet is messy, the piles are rather neat, but there's so many of them! And she often dresses as a male.

Truth is Violet has an excuse she has to spend a good chunk of the plot disguised as a boy, but why Shane? Shane Nottingham is the son of the Sheriff of Nottingham, all he has to do is collecting money and ordering troops around, he doesn't need to dress as a beggar or does he? I will have to read his story once. Anyway Shane often dresses as a girl and wants to be called Sharon.

Then there are Ronnie Rosenkrantz and Gunnar Guildenstern from the third grade. They make fun of almost anyone. Those two are really awful and they give us Shakespearians a bad name.

They once mentioned some person named Robin Goodfellow, according to these two he should have been even greater at making pranks and tricks than both of them together. Oh my Grimm, I'm so glad I didn't meet him, he must be perfectly unbearable.

There is however one more prankster right in my year. Caspar Fool is going to be the next fool in Violet's play. He tries to flirt with her sometimes. I don't know if he has a serious rebellious crush on her or if he messes with her royally because it's his destiny to be foolish and make fun of people. Whatever after.

Apropos Royals and Rebels. You think Apple White takes it too further? You call her obsessed with her destiny? You know nothing, Jonathan Lionheart. (Why did I say that? Excuse me, must be some bad influence from Gunnar and Ronnie.)

If you hadn't met Romeo and Juliet, you hadn't met a truly dedicated Royal. Those two couldn't wait for their graduation and the day they will be reunited. Forever. For eternity. In short, they cheerfully awaited their own suicide. The guards must have been constantly alert because once one of them got near a knife or a poisonous substance, they always tried to kill themselves immediately.

It says that in their first year they kept bothering the headmaster for the privilege of signing the Storybook of Legends earlier because only their love was true, the other tales only copy their passion for each other. Ugh. I know that wasn't very lady like, but…They really could get on your nerves if you spent a lot of time with them. One had to admire their optimism though, no one was so happy from the prospect of dying like them.

When one talks about the Ever After High, one has to mention the headmasters because frankly a day can't pass without you seeing at least one of them.

For example I saw miss Tolkien climbing on one of the tree pillars in castleteria with a rope when I ate my breakfast. She's strange. One day she showed up as a kid, then disappeared for a few days and then she and the Grimm brothers returned. This time she looked as a teenager, even though she insists that she's adult already, and the headmasters claimed her as their adopted heir.

I must go now, the lesson starts in fifteen minutes and I have to revise stuff from the last lesson.

Author's note: For those wondering: Zelda is installing a swing.

Rebeccaseal: This was an almost perfect story that I would recommend to anyone. The only thing I would work on is painting a more realistic picture of Haiathiel. Somehow the environment seemed limited, and the land itself a bit unfinished. This can be solved simply by added descriptions to people and places. ...

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

ianwatson: The comedy is original and genuinely funny, I have laughed out loud many times reading this book. But the story and the plot are also really engaging.

JulieJeanette: I'm only on chapter nine, but so far I am loving this story!. I am on pins and needles hoping that they find good men in their lives by the end. I am American and so the British tone and lingo ('knickers,' 'sod it' ) of the book is very appealing. I had to find out how much '12 stone' was by goog...

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...
