What We Did While She Was Gone Pt 3


I gaze at Jayla. She isn’t moving.

At the sight of her chest heaving up and down, I start to relax and I pull out my phone and open the message app.

It automatically takes me to Jayla’s chat page, for she was my most recent texter.

I re-read our conversation.

Do u want 2 cum ovr 2nite?

Those words sting like angry wasps. I they weren’t on the screen, then Jayla wouldn’t be like–like that.

The worst part?

That it was all my fault.


I look at Jayla, lying helplessly in the drab hospital bed.

Winter is pacing around her.

Why, why did I have to argue with Lissie over some dumb movie? Why did I have to declare a sort of war between my siblings? 

I couldn’t bear to think of alll the mess I had made, not only to the house, but to Jayla. 

If I hadn’t been quarreling with my own family, she wouldn’t have had to come over to break the tie and things wouldn’t be like–like this.

The worst part?

That it was all my fault.


Why did I have to make my siblings vote, of all things? Hadn’t I known that there was an even number of dolls? Why had I been so desperate for a say in the movie we watched? 

I couldn’t bear to think of the fact that if I hadnt voted, Jayla wouldn’t have needed to come.

The worst part? 

That it was all my fault.


“Visiting hours are over.” The doctor says and all of Jayla’s admirers, friends, and relatives file out in to the eaiting room. 

Alexandra, Isabel, and Felicity are all sitting in a row with their heads down, probably blaming themselves.

It was so pathetic that it was almost funny. I would’ve laughed, despite the dire situation. 

“Guys,” I say to them as I plop on the couch. “You know it’s none of your faults, right? Why are all of you blaming yourselves for something that happened by coincidence? It could have just as easily happened at her house.”

“You’re right,” Isabel says.

“Thank goodness for Winter.” Alexandra sighs. 

What will happen to Jayla? How will they contact Emmie?

DIY Braided Ponytails

Hello! Here is a hairstyle tutorial for you! 

First, take two sections of hair and put them in front.

Make two ponytails, making sure two exclude the two sections you just made.

Braid the front sections. 

Wrap the braid around one of the pigtails.

Repeat on the other side an you’re done!

Customizing Mini Sam + A Change Of Nickname

Why hello everbody! Remember in this post when I announced that I was going to purchase and customize mini Molly, but never got around to it? Well, I didn’t notice what I had right in front of me! So I customized Sam!

^I put a tissue around her body to protect her while I washed her hair.

Then I combed it out.

And gave her little freckles! But boy, did I freak out when I cut of her bangs!

So, instead of everyone calling me Phoenix, short for EmeraldPhoenix, I thought I would go by Emmie!(Comes from EMeraldPhoenix)  

So without further adue, 

Laura & Mary

Phoenix has never posted about us? Grrr. She totally ignores the fact that she’s got other dolls besides AG! Like what about all those poor stuffed animals that she dumps in the corner, never to be posted about? What about the LEGOs, who remain unphotographed in a corner of Uni’s LEGO table? What about ME? Anyway,  Read more

My Thoughts on the American Girl Summer Releases 

So, they changed the TM meet outfits. 

I consider them pretty, actually. The shoes aren’t supposed to be super high quality though. Here’s a pic:

And then the new accessories:

They come with a jacket, leggings (?), a purse, a credit card, and ID card, a purse, some fake doll-sized cash, a PHONE (#awesome #needitnow #isnthatalreadyinzsset) a headband, and an unidentifed little pouch thingy.

Then, there’s Gabby’s new stuff!

This bed is like a cooler version of McKenna’s loft bed. It retails for $200. Finally, a decent big-ticket item for Gabby. I really like it, but it’s #waytooexpensive

Gabby’s ‘Fuzzy chair and ottoman set’. Super cute. Comes with a lavender fuzzy chair, a purple ottoman, a pink plate with a butterfly, pizza (WHAT IS THAT DOING ON THE GROUND THIS THING COMES WITH A PLATE) lemon lime soda, Minute Maid lemonade, and some sort of yellow thing. Maybe a stand for the lemonade? 😐 

Her ‘Take Flight Performance Outfit’. WHAT KIND OF A NAME IS THAT????!! I think it should be called ‘Summer Daydream Outfit’. Much better. 


Here is Tenney looking all sassy in her Tay-Swift-Style outfit. I like it, may get it for Lexie. But doesn’t Tenney already have a performance outfit??

A new outfit for Logan! Uni’s is overjoyed that Logan will now have one more thing in his wardrobe. I actually really like it, the only thing I would change would be to take off the AG sign. 

Well, there you have it, folks! What are your thoughts on these new releases? Which of them will you be purchasing? Don’t forget to like this post and leave a comment below!

The Realm of Writing

Like my featured image? XD It’s true. The title is not a joke.

I am actually going to demolishdestroymurderdiscontinue 101 Writing Prompts.

I’m not doing it randomly, I’ll give you 10 reasons:

  1. They were really bad
  2. Like really bad
  3. And not very professional
  4. And messy
  5. And weird
  6. They were very boring and time consuming
  7. Because
  8. Because
  9. Because
  10. Because

“We’re doomed forever! Phoenix, what on earth will we do without your horribly corny writing prompts?” You might say.

Well, we’re moving on.

But we’re not JUST moving on. We’re moving on to something bigger.

Correction: We’re moving on to somethings that are bigger.


Official Image Coming Soon. (That sounds like a movie trailer XD)
Taco ‘Bout It Tuesday!


A crazy, writing themed, very taco-ish discussion series in which I get to rant about how much I despise certain writing styles…

What We Did While She Was Gone Pt. 1

This is the post I promised! It turned out to be quite a long photostory, so it will be done in two parts.


“We’ll be fine, Mom.” I say as EmeraldPhoenix reminds me for the 100th time to be good for Isabelle, who she had left in charge. 

“But I just don’t get why Iz is in charge,” I complain. My voice drops to a whisper. “She’s not the most responsible, you know.” 

“Neither are you.” Mom says smartly. “She’s the oldest, so that’s that.” 

“But why can’t I be in charge, or at least Felicity?” Felicity is my partner in crime. She would help keep the house mischevious. 

“No buts. Besides, you and Felicity are on the younger side. If anything, Alexandra would be in charge. She’s the sensible one.” 

Apparently, Alexandra hears this, for she lets out a little ‘Humph!’ of satisfaction.

Hair flip! XD

Phoenix kisses each of us on the forehead. “Bye, everyone!” 

“Goodbye!” We all wave. 

I wish she would hurry up. 

There was a lot of mischief to be done. 


“I’m bored,” I complain. I know better than to whine, but Mom wasn’t there to tell me off for it.

“We could go to the mall,” Isabelle suggests.

“NO!” All of us scream, minus Alexandra, who seems to like the idea. 

“We could play whirligig,” I say. Everyone looks at me, confused.

“Excuse me?” Lea cocks her head to the side. 


My cheeks are red with embarrassment. “It’s a game we played back in 1776,” I explain. “It’s  a wooden circle with string attached on either side. You have to try to spin it.” 

“Well, we don’t have a whirlywig, or whatever it is.” Maryellen points out. 

“We could start a band,” Logan says. 

Logan why are you about to bonk Maryellen on the nose with your drumstick explain yourself

“Yeah, but we only have a few instruments. What kind songs would we play?” 

“I’m not sure.” Logan replies. “Rock?” 

“Yuck, no,” Alexandra joins in. “What about pop?” 

“No way,” I chime. “Let’s play classical.” 

“Classical is bor-ing.” Maryellen says. “How about we watch a movie.” 

“We can order pizza!”


“We can invite Jayla!”
“We can watch Felicity; an American Girl!” I say sheepishly.

“No, Félicité, we’re gonna watch Isabelle.

“Are not!”

“Are too!”

“Are not!”

“Are too!”

“Girls!” Alexandra separates us. “Let’s vote. If you are in favor of watching Felicity, please raise your hand.”

Alexandra, Lea, and me all raise our hands. 

“Favor of watching Isabelle?” 

Isabelle, Logan, and Maryellen raise their hands. 

“Well, we have an even number. Let’s see what Jayla says.” 

“I’ll text her and ask if she can come over,” I say, grabbing my phone and typing the message.  

WOW my dolls have really bad grammar. 😊

Can u cum ovr tonite 4 a movie?

Yeah,, I’m free tonite. Wat r we watching?

That’s the thing. We dont really no. Were trying 2 decide between the Isabelle and felicity movie. Which 1 do u want?

Felicity sounds fine.

Hoping u’d say that! XD 😀😃

“She said Felicity.” I say with a smirk.

” I don’t believe you.” Isabelle frowns.

“See?” I say, triumphantly thrusting the phone in her face.

“You were lying, then!” Isabelle fibs. 

“What do you mean? That says Felicity, plain as day.” 

“I can’t believe you would lie to me!” 

“I DIDN’T!!” I roar, grabbing the phone and shoving it under everyone’s noses so they could see the words. 

“Chillax, Iz.” Maryellen says calmly. “It says Felicity. No need to lie to us.” 


My eyes dart this way and that as insults and objects fly back and forth. 

Suddenly, I hear the dooorbell ring.

“Guys, stop fighting, pizza’s here!” I shout over the commotion. 

“When did you order the pizza?” Logan says, coming to his senses.

“I ordered it while Lissie was texting! And everyone, just BE QUIET FOR ONE SECOUND!” I yell. 

Everyone silences. The objects that had been flying crash to the floor.

“This is ridiculous!I f you excuse me, I’m gonna go get that pizza!”
